|This is one of Magnum's finest efforts, in my opinion. Very artsy, Bob Catley's vocals have never sounded better, great guitar work, interesting hooks, bridges, and lyrics. Great harmonies on "Only in America". Great studio version of the Magnum classic, "The Flood." If you liked Rock Art, this is in the same vein. A real keeper! This is one of those rare albums that you don't have to skip songs. The whole thing is worth listening to, cover to cover.

|Haven't got this album yet unfortunately...Can anybody give me a description??? Is it anywhere near the mid-80s releases or more like "Goodnight L.A." For example??? Help me out here please...

|this album is more than the mid-80s releases. "The Flood" is a masterpiece!!!

|Definitely Magnum's best release between WOH and Breath of Life. At the time of it's release, though, I remember being slightly disappointed with it. Basically, Magnum had showcased a few of the Sleepwalking songs on tour before the album was released and the album versions simply did not meet the expectations created by the live performance. Most notable example is 'Broken Wheel'. This was a classic live, and made me drool for the album's arrival. The recorded version is, quite frankly, weak.

|If you are new to Magnum and enjoy good melodic rock with quality musicianship, a strong keyboard influence supported by quality vocals, guitar and the rest, you won't be disappointed.

|Hmmm... I have never been able to make my mind up about this one, is it really good or not? I still don't know and I bought it in 1992! What I can say though is that I agree with that the songs played on "The Spirit Tour" lacks something or the other when heard on this album, "Only in America", "Broken Wheel" & "The Flood" are still great songs thou. Try and get hold of a copy of the LP-version and get a really close look at all the details on the cover, amazing!

|I agree.Never figured out if I like the whole album.I really like some of the songs like The Flood and Only in America. The fun thing with the cover is that it has details from most if not all of theyr earlier albums.Try to figure out which album the images come from.

|Only me jumping on to my Magnum horse again! I understand your uncertainty, Tarm - however for me this album does work as a whole, even though some individual songs are quite weak. 'Only in America' is actually my LEAST favourite track here, but the other one you mention [the Flood] is definitely one of the best. No accounting for taste, eh? Well let's see, what else can I say? OH YEAH! Magnum's new album 'Brand New Morning' will hit the stores on August 30th! 12 days baby! WoOoOhOoOo!

|Good album, perhaps not one of their best but still a must for Magnum fans. The title track is hypnotising and could have been lifted off On A Storyteller's... while tunes like Only In America, Just One More Heartbreak, You're The One (Start Talking Love the sequel!) and Stormy Weather are equally good. Oh, and The Flood is amazing like most people have mentioned. Still, a couple of duff tracks and an average production sound make sure it does not reach the lofty heights of their mid 80s records

|One of the best Magnum albums! Perhaps less Hard rock and more FM-sounding, nothing wrong with that.. =)

|A mi este ya no me acaba de convencer. Mi favorita: "You're the One"

|One of my Favourite ever Magnum albums and for me, this shows them at the peak of their creativity songwise, although at the beginning of their decline commercially. This one is Extra silky smooth, as with the last album 'Goodnight L.A', but this is so much better songwise. The fantastic 'Just One More Heartache' comes top of the pile amidst this set of melodic beauties, but 'You're The One', 'Only In America', 'Stormy Weather' and 'The Flood' are top class songs aswell. If this isn't in your collection of British melodic rock albums, then it certainly should be, as it is up their amongst some of the best in the genre.

|This album has a very relaxed feel to it...not too many rock numbers but quiet ones instead!..Bob Catley and Tony Clarkin are leading the ship as usual with that unique formula and obviously also good credits to the rest of the boys too!...Bob's singing pleasantly,comfortable but at the same time powerful and strong when it was required!...my fave tracks were "Stormy Weather" smooth,"Too Much To Ask" is a highlight,"You're The One" nice and catchy,"Just One More Hearbreak" rocks very good,"Every Woman,Every Man" is a very good soft AOR track,liked it a lot,"Only In America" has some very cool lyrics and "Sleepwalking" is another goodie song...maybe this album is for real Magnum fans and not occasional ones...you decide!.89/100.
