|I can't believe that I am the first person to review this album. This is a top ten album of all time. Try to find the Greatest Hits if possible. Last Chance was their big hit, but Breakout is the song that really rocks. There are at least 7 great songs though. Don't be afraid to buy it.

|Yeah...It's awesome....two of my all time favorite songs come from this album..."Flesh & Blood" and "Last Chance"...love "Breaskout" too!!! Wish they were still playing around... maybe a reunion???

|Most underrated AOR/hardrock act in history, but these guys are pure giants. One of the best AOR/ pomp tunes ever comes from this band. Listen to 'Last Chance' and you know what I mean ! Can it get any better than this ? Don't think so. I recommend all their CD's (the last one is the weakest) because they're all true CLASSICS !!!! Your collection is not complete without Shooting Star ! BUY !!!!!!!!!
