Excellent. Perfect summer driving music. Melodic, great backing vocals, occaisonal kooky numbers, (Here comes Sally), great use of brass and piano in unusual ways.

I remember when I first heard Heroes and Zeroes when I was 16. I thought it was just a fantastic album. It still is. I'm 30 now and still thind that the writing and arrangements are excellent. When I was younger I wrote Glen a letter, and he answered it in his own hadwriting. It was so cool. I still haven't had a chance to meet him yet, but I hear good things about him personally as well as professionally. Definitely pick up a copy of this album, it's great!

Looking to buy a Hero & Zeroes CD. Mail to: sumnomeaztim@yahoo.com. A truly great album that never was discovered except for a fortunate few!

From: melody hunter Date: November 7, 2002 at 10:48
imagine a mixture of styx with early bon jovi and youve got it.....but hey! talking in code its his best album how come it hasnt apeared in here yet

From: Scopus Maximus Date: February 1, 2003 at 4:28
I have had the chance to chat with Glenn on occasion and he is a very down to earth guy. Back in his teens, his early bands used to play in the battles at my grammar school (hows that for way back!). I remeber when Heroes and Talking came out and they are amazing albums. I'll be converting my tape copies over to CD to preserve them but would love to get the original. Glen said that he has no urge to reissue these albums tho....bummer. Too much legal paperwork cos someone else owns em.Rock on!

From: MelodicMan Date: May 20, 2003 at 8:17
Some nice tracks. Overall ok record. Talking In Code is 100 times better.

He's a genius who never really got his due. Glen definately should be all over the radio...his songs are pop gems. Unfortunately though, the music biz has changed, and you can't get on the radio unless you have a lot of money to give to the PD's at the stations.

From: Mr M Date: May 4, 2004 at 19:34
How this didn't turn Burtnick into a household name is beyond me. A faultless collection of evocative, soulful rock.

I remember the summer this one came out, kept with me all summer and to this day, is still a feel good album, strong songs include Radio, Follow me, Walls come down, and Love. This one is great and to me, on the same level with Talking in Code, the new album left me a bit cold, can't wait till Glen puts out another top melodic recording!!!

From: TIM (2) Date: August 16, 2005 at 15:31
I agree swriter, his latest album is crap compared to this & 'Talking In Code'. This is one of those discs you can just play from start to end without skipping any tracks. Immaculate production & musicianship, & the thing is bristling with melodies & catchy choruses. "Walls Came Down" & "Abalene" are my 2 favourite tunes, but I also love the closing track with it's incredible vocal harmonies. It's more pop/rock than AOR, but is utterly essential for anyone into either genre. 9/10.

From: swriter Date: August 27, 2005 at 18:51
Neal Schon on guitar, wowowow, I never noticed that one!!!

From: juan carlos Date: December 8, 2006 at 23:14
Melodic rock de buena factura, realmente muy buena la voz de Glen. Un disco muy bien producido y las melodías están super buenísimas. "Love Goes On" y "Abalene" son mis favoritas. Los 3 últimos temas no me van mucho sin ser malas por supuesto, y el tiempo un poco corto pero esto es un mínimo problema para mí. Buenísimo disco. 8.8/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 13, 2010 at 21:34
Good and enjoyable album by Glen..more or less in the same line as "Talking In Code" but a bit better this one..in here you can notice some similarities with Bryan Adams and The Outfield,2 "obligatories" in the melodic field..."Follow You" what a song!,catchy and melodic,a highlight 4 sure,"Spinning My Wheels" is another following goodie,"Walls Came Down" could be labeled as a very good track,"Love Goes On" is another high peak of the album,"Heard It On The Radio" & "Scattered" are the coolest tracks of the release...an effort like this is worth the listening dudes!...AOR rules!!!.88/100.!!!

From: sweet333 Date: March 1, 2012 at 18:28
STUPID BOYS is highlight, i almost started dancing!

From: petermexico Date: May 28, 2012 at 17:22
Nice album by Glen Burtnick! A good AOR collection, typical 80's music. La verdad compré este disco hace más de 20 años sin haber escuchado nada de Glen como solista, me gustó en su momento y lo sigo disfrutando, no me pareció tan especial como para colocarlo como indispensable, 20 años después sigo pensando lo mismo, sin embargo al escuchar toda la basura de la cual estamos actualmente inundados,es posible colocarlo con una califcación sobresaliente y al mismo tiempo me hace extrañar esa gran época en que todos los días había lanzamientos con calidad suficiente que no había oportunidad de conocer a Todos. Saludos a la mejor década, Los 80´s!
