this one is simply ok, there's nothing earth shattering in here that's gonna make you go WOW!; if you want to use that expression then grab yourself a copy of the "ambition" album...now that's what i call a real classic!.

Agreed with ROB!! This is very spotty. Almost in the same league as Dennis DeYoung's patchy solo works. Starts off promising with "Remo's Theme" and "Jealousy" but slips into mediocrity faster than the second day of a Sylvester Stallone film festival. Go with "Ambition"- easily the best of Tommy's 4 solo CDs. Makes "What If" sound like "Whatever..."!

Tommy is my favorite artist. This one I think has some really great songs. This is not a test has a lot of meaning.

Hace muchos años vi sus discos en una discotienda Limeña pero núnca me animé a comprarlos, pero despues de ver el video de "Lonely School" me los compré todos. Este disco no es tan bueno como su album debut o el "Ambition" pero tampoco es malo, tiene sus temas muy buenos y mi favorita es "See Me Now" con la voz a lo John Waite, luego "What If" tema de peli x cierto, "Jealousy" y la bella balada "Count on You" las mejores. "This Is Not A Test" y la otra balada "Nature Of The Beast" buenos!. 8/10

Otro que lo tengo en longplay. En esa epoca era muy dificil conseguir esta clase de musica aca en Lima. Gracias a un ladron que trato de asaltarme cuando tenia 13 años creo, pude comprarmelo. Bueno pero eso es otra historia. Remo's Theme (What If) sono en las radios pero sin mayor repercusion a pesar del apoyo de la pelicula. Es verdad no es mejor que el Ambition pero tiene sus canciones como la bonita See Me Now, Nature Of The Beast, Jealousy. Ojala que el proximo año salga a la luz un nuevo di

Continuo, salga un disco de STYX. Ya es hora y no sacar tantos grandes exitos o discos en vivo.

Second solo release by Mr Shaw showing some kind of Pop/AOR songs...the album has great tunes such as the opener "Jealousy","Remo's Theme","See Me Now","True Confessions","Count On You"(a wonderful ballad)and "Nature Of The Beast" wich in some terms makes the album appealing.I would say that this one is more or less in the same line as his first album("Girls With Guns")but if you want to buy his best solo effort ever,buy the "Ambition" album...that one really rocks!!!...this one,80/100
