This one leans more toward a pop sound, but still has some good tunes. "Straight Ahead" and "Train Rolls On" are super.

From: JOURNEY Date: October 24, 2002 at 9:24
while "burning" and "dreams"???!!! aren't they super?

From: Mike L Date: May 8, 2003 at 1:43
This is the hardest release to find from this band. "Straight Ahead", "Winner", and "Go For It" are the most liked but "Taken Enough" is my favorite from this release. Continues the Shooting Star AOR dominance.

hardest release to find? jeez there is links in the white box above the personnel and this has been reissued for the past 5 yrs now

From: Rycheage Date: May 23, 2004 at 17:37
'Burning' is a good album with some nice cuts including "Straight Ahead", the first single and "Train Rolls On" with one of Gary Westís better vocal performances and a song that ends just way too soon. Not sure about the cover of "Reach Out (Iíll Be There)" as itís difficult to improve on the flawless original, but it works. This album wonít knock your socks off on first listen, but it is a grower.

After the fabulous debut, I was disappointed with the following ' Hang On For Your Life' & 'III Wishes' releases, make that VERY disappointed. This restored my faith in the band immediately the opening salvos of 'Preview/Straight Ahead' came flying out of the speakers. This still remains one of my fave SS moments from all their albums. The rest is constantly good aswell making this one of the stronger albums in their catologue.
