Este disco es de lo mejor que hay en el mundo!!! Long way from paradise, Old men down, Christian man, Devil is a Liar y Crying in the chapel son los mejores temas que escuche en mi vida. Aguante Allies!!!

This is one heck of a CD. I fell in love with Bob Carlisle with this one -- long time ago. Buy it!!

From: James Date: April 19, 2003 at 2:46
If you are a fan of Sammy Hagar then you must give this cd a try. You will enjoy it very much. A lot of power with the vocals and music. A really good cd, not as well known as it should be.

What about "shoulder to shoulder"?

From: fasteddie Date: October 23, 2003 at 16:00
What good all around music! Bob's voice shines, songwriting in excellent and melodies will leave you singing them over and over. "Take Me Back" - what conviction and surrender! "All Day, All Night" is my favorite. 10/10

9º disco del 89' este d ALLIES justamente me falta en mi discografia d ellos. tiene buena pinta... solo hace falta ver el año...jjj

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 12, 2005 at 6:48
Bah que porqueria de disco, aquellos que an votado no tienen ni verguenza de sus gustos este disco esta por encima de los 9 puntos cuando deberia estar en 0 puntos que acaso no tienen gustos o que, otros discos que merecen esta puntuacion estan mas bajos que verguenza, un disco que lo escuche una vez y luego le di una patada y lo mande a la basura, por ratos hacen progresivo, rockerillos, vaqueros, carajo lo que busco es AOR o Rock Melodico y este no sirve, asi estan avisados por el Ave fenix.

From: ROBERT Date: May 13, 2005 at 9:51
Q DICES!!Para empezar esto es A.O.R no Hard Melodico, y dp esta esa voz del Bob!Dale una oportunidad,para ello tienes q abrir tu Heart al WEST COAST... sALUDOS dd Barcelona!! FORÇA BARÇA 2005!!!!:P

This time it's a more AOR sounding album, with some "harder" sounds and more synths than the previous release. Song melodies and arrangements are simpler (a bit too much sometimes, like missing something) too than in all their other albums. Huge ballad with Take Me Back. Some 70's Hard Rock/Blues influences in most of the riffs. Even a basic Baroque Pop song with Walk With Me Silent and a Doo Wop rhythm with Crying In The Chapel. Most melodies are super forgettable. Rating: 5/10. Favorite Track: Take Me Back.
