This is a very cool old time rock & roll record. Bob Carlisle has one of the most powerfull, soulfull rock & roll voices out there. Bluesy guitar riffs, funky rhythms and great Christian lyrics. Recomended highly.

From: fretboardfrenzy Date: September 17, 2002 at 18:18
Christian rock? hehe i think this is a strange term. cuz' the hand of friendship has no religion, has no color, has no nation fine arts is not a religious competition specialy MUSIC is not! but, this is a very good album. vocals n guitars really soulfull n great. nice work

This site is brilliant, that I will not deny but I sometimes wonder why a band like this sits here and the brilliance of SR-71, Donots, Depswa, Cauterize, Diffuser etc. will never grace these pages even though they have much more in common with traditional melodic hard rock, with their massive choruses, hooks and meaty riffs. This CD is like falling asleep at the wheel and waking up elsewhere to look down on the scene of the misfortune. Avoid if you like any type of rock, IMO. Boring as batshit.

...can't find any AOR in here (or hard rock, melodic rock, westcoast or whatever this site stands for). After a great first album it ended in pain.

From: gfranciscop Date: July 6, 2021 at 12:45
Country influences and strange tracks in this one; and then all of a sudden, an 80s ballad in Someone To Turn To. And then again, back to almost Heavy Metal Hard Rock. Weird choices here for sure. Even some New Age influence on Can't Stop The River (probably the only song where the outside influences work, very relaxing). They surely didn't know what to do lol. A LATIN MUSIC SONG wth, really guys, I don't know what to say. Rating: 4/10. Favorite Track: Can't Stop The River.
