From: javi Date: July 20, 2002 at 12:03
que pasa? donde esta el AMBITION ese es su mejor lp y uno de los mejores del melodic rock del mundo IMPRESIONANTE

From: Eugenio "Waite" Date: January 28, 2003 at 3:47
This is just great, some hunting AOR melodies in here. Wish I have the original cd, anyway if u see it around there dont dare missing it!

From: Blue Tequila Date: March 11, 2003 at 5:15
Hey Dan...you ever had one of those moments where you walk into a place with used c.d.'s and see an album in mint condition that you know goes for big bucks everywhere else priced at $4.99? Well I had one of those moments today.

From: koogles Date: March 22, 2004 at 12:01
Tommy could have combined the best songs on this CD and the best moments on its follow-up ("What If") and still come up short by Styx standards. Similar to Peter Wolf's solo CDs: good for their hits, but taken as a whole, disappointing. Thankfully, Tommy got it right three years later with "Ambition".

From: Rycheage Date: June 5, 2004 at 0:28
Tommy Shaws first solo outing is a bit of a mixed bag. In my opinion, theres no way it could be called an AOR classic - that accolade would go to 1987s 'Ambition' - but its good moments definitely out-weigh the bad.

From: kan from taiwan Date: September 8, 2004 at 23:46
tommy's voice is my favorite vocal! since styx to damn yankees i am his great fan!i know this cd 15 years ago! till last year i got it for 80 u.s.d on ebay! for me it is a wonderful memories for my young age! and i think it's a nice aor album! and if you like journet,REO,loverboy, this cd is good choice in 80's aor!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: November 1, 2004 at 22:44
A VER MUCHACHOS, ESTE ES SU SEGUNDO MEJOR TRABAJO DESPUES DEL AMBITION POR SUPUESTO, HAY MUY BUENOS TEMAS COMO Girls With Guns, UN TEMA A LO LOVERBOY DE ESA EPOCA UN TEMA COMO PARA PONERTE A BAILAR, OTROS CORTES COMO Outside in the Rain TREMENDO TEMA ME ENCANTA CON UNA CHICA CANTANDO EN EL TEMA, NO SE QUIEN ES PERO ES MUY BUENA, TAMBIEN Free to Love You, Heads Up, The Race Is On, Come In and Explain SI AMIGOS ESTAMOS ANTE UN BUEN ALBUM, ASI QUE SI PODEIS CONSEGUIRLO NO LO PIERDAN. SALUDOS javi.

Great debut solo this one, featuring some great tracks - 'Girls With Guns', 'Kiss Me hello', 'Lonely School' & 'The Race Is On'. Nice to have the extended versions of a couple of tracks aswell (especially 'Kiss Me'). Maybe a couple of fillers on here that bring the rating down a bit, but still a strong debut.

From: Kip Date: April 29, 2005 at 0:37
Lonely School is worthy enough of purchasing this album. Top notch power ballad.

From: AOR freaky Date: April 29, 2005 at 1:46
Oh boy, is this boring ! Only the last song 'The Race Is On' is worth listening. The rest is forgettable ! Avoid ! Once again : Dennis Deyoung is/was Styx, not this guy at all !

From: juan carlos Date: June 15, 2006 at 0:26
Ayer pas el video de "lonely school" en VH1 canal 45 aqu en Per (cable) gran cancin, el album lo he visto pero no me he animado a comprarme, bueno hasta ahora pues parece bueno y por los comentarios hay tambien muy buenos temas como este en el album y por fin me animar a comprarlo. El video esta muy bueno, que nostalgia de esos aos realmente.. sniff.. jejeje.. Saludos.

No considero justo por lo menos en este disco que a la pregunta de si este disco es bueno te salte alguien con que "Ambition" es mucho mejor,ante esto lo lgico es que quien no lo haya escuchado lo deje para mejor ocasin y fije nuevos objetivos,mala opcin,no sabe lo que se pierde,no una joya pero si un disco bastante competente,eso si para joyas a nivel individual 2 que Rafo vuelve a clavar "Outside In The Rain" y esa "Free To Love You" con unas teclas y una melodia vocal maravillosa.BUEN AOR.

Lo mejor de este disco viene a partir de "Lonely School" (Chequen el video en You Tube Buenazo), gran solo en "Heads Up" buen tema, la media Pomposa "Kiss Me Hello" me record a Gowan Ok, punteo contagioso en "Outside in the Rain", arreglos y teclados bonitos en "Free to Love You" y mi favorita del disco: osea la guinda del pastel viene al final con "The Race Is On" me encanta!!. 8.5/10

From: MetalPete67 Date: January 19, 2009 at 13:26
Hard to beat the title cut for good 80's power pop. It should be a radio staple even today, on 80's shows! I rarely hear it though, if ever...luckily I have the song. Saw him open up for the Kinks the year this came out. Kinks blew him away of course, but he sounded good doing a couple Styx songs.

From: petermexico Date: April 29, 2009 at 17:37
Tommys first solo album, Es un buen disco, aunque la produccin en este caso, tpica de 1984, muy cargada fu lo que no ayud a que las canciones pasen el test del tiempo, pero buenos temas, s que los hay, "Lonely School", "Fading Away", "Outside in the Rain" y la final "the Race is On", es bueno saber que est recin editado junto con su 3er trabajo "Ambition", que en mi opinin bajo la produccin de Terry Thomas es mejor lbum en conjunto, pero las canciones mencionadas de este trabajo me parecen mejores. De cualquier manera, que puedo decir, Es Tommy!, y su voz es nica, y es el mejor pretexto para comprarlos, sin menospreciar su trabajo con las seis cuerdas. Vivan los 80s!
