Superb return to form from Stan the Man!!. The heaviest (in terms of guitar) album IMO since the glory days of Barrage with an excellent production to boot. The songs are catchy, sublime AOR with Stan in fine vocal form. If you love AOR/ Melodic Rock-Buy it, lots here to keep you happy.

From: AOR freaky Date: July 22, 2004 at 5:55
Without a shadow of a doubt : ALBUM OF THE YEAR SO FAR ! This is splendid, traditional, classic AOR, the way it should sound ! Brilliant release, and with the names involved, you know you may expect a MASTERPIECE ! BUY OR DIE !

From: Rui Almeida Date: July 22, 2004 at 6:36
Maybe one of the best albuns of 2004. Great !!!

From: MelodicMan Date: July 23, 2004 at 20:55
Great album by Stan! Ranks with Grand Illusion for Album Of The Year so far, but i will wait for the new ones from Danny Vaughn and Jeff Scott Soto for a veredict. Anyway, Shine is way better than Language Of The Heart, that is too lite and pop for my taste.

From: TIM (2) Date: August 11, 2004 at 8:29
Excellent return, and probably his best sounding release to date. The consistency is as good as ever but the production (for once) actually means you can hear what he's singing about. I fancy this to be in my top 10 come the years end... 8.5/10.

From: Wotty Date: August 11, 2004 at 15:19
What a fantastic cd this is,recommended by a fellow reviewer,you know who you are,this has the potential to be one of the best cds of the year.Played,sung and produced to a high standard,it is almost up there with my personal fave,DEACON STREET,though not quite.9/10

From: Wotty Date: August 25, 2004 at 18:00
If you do not own this,you should.An essential purchase...

From: rocketron Date: September 8, 2004 at 5:41
Welcome return to former form from Stan. Gets my vote for AOR album of the year. A legend never dies !!

From: Wotty Date: September 8, 2004 at 6:27
To rocketron.Wise words....

From: TIM (2) Date: September 8, 2004 at 9:10
As much as I like this, to call it album of the year is a bit strong. There are some better contenders, for me, as I don't think this is leaps and bounds ahead of some of his past work, it just sounds a lot better due to production/mixing (although it's still pretty raw sounding). That said I do like it and play it a great deal, but album of the year? Not for me.

From: Wotty Date: September 8, 2004 at 9:39
To TIM[2].In the AOR genre this probably in the running for album of the year.However its only Sept,so is there anything on the horizon that is going to blow us away??? Or any previous release you may have championed.I am just interested. Thanks...

From: TIM (2) Date: September 8, 2004 at 11:23
Hey Wotty, In the AOR genre this is definitely one the best of the year. But then, how many albums can you name in the AOR genre that have been made and released this year? I can name about 5 or 6, so being top of that list is no great shakes. I can name half a dozen from various genres I like more than this, and also probably the Final Frontier and Stage Dolls latest. There is some hope, Shy are supposed to have something this year. As are Diving for Pearls and On the Rise.

From: Wotty Date: September 8, 2004 at 11:42
Hi TIM[2].Cheers for the reply mate,I couldnt have put it any better than that myself.Final Frontier.I agree and the others I wait for in anticipation.If you lived in the U.K. YOU WOULD HAVE TEARS IN YOUR EYES WHEN TOLD HOW MUCH STAGE DOLLS CD IS,but it is supposed to be normal price now.Thanks...

From: TIM (2) Date: September 8, 2004 at 11:59
Hey Wotty, I'm in Blighty myself but paid about '8 for the Stage Dolls from eBay the week after it's release. Paid the same for Stan Bush. Is worth shopping around...

From: Wotty Date: September 8, 2004 at 14:14
Hi TIM[2].Good old Blighty.If you want my e-mail adress just give a reply here and vice-versa.Cheers...

From: TIM (2) Date: September 9, 2004 at 11:37
Hey Wotty, My email is Tim.J.Robertson@GSK.Com. I'm in Brentford, the rock n' roll capital of the World! (although we do have Mitch Malloy playing here next week, and have had Kip Winger play here). To stay on topic a little I have to say in terms of AOR/Melodic Rock the new Danny Vaughn: 'From the Inside' album edges ahead of this, Final Frontier or Stage Dolls for AOR album of the year, so far at least...

From: Geoff Date: September 9, 2004 at 20:28
Okay, may as well comment on it to break the Wotty/Tim(2) flow. Basically, this is a very good melodic rock / AOR disc. Certainly won't be winning any album of the year awards from me (No offence meant at all - just many better), but it is a very good album. I really like all the tracks except the first one. Faves are 'Falling','Say it ain't love',and 'Have you ever believed'. Basically, just a very good, straight ahead melodic rock CD with no bad features at all. Great stuff!

From: TIM (2) Date: September 14, 2004 at 8:03
P.s. As much as it's nice to see the multimedia element on albums these days, Frontiers' video clips really so leave a lot to be desired. Whereas this is not as bad as the 'From the Inside': 'Nothing at All' clip, it's still pretty bad. Artist interviews are always welcome, but these zero-budget videos surely can't help the label...

From: Swriter Date: February 4, 2005 at 19:38
finally getting around to all my favs of 04, this one is in the top ten, thanks to this ite, I recently found out about Stan Bush(and Steve O) and ran to get all of his recorded wonders. Shine is a rare gem of melodic rock with more catchyness then a flu, just can't get enough of this one. Shine is a must have.

From: Lennie Date: April 10, 2005 at 13:38
Agree with all comments above in so much as this is a good solid AOR album and is highly recommended. This is very much in the vein of John Kilzer, although surprisingly his albums arent listed ??! His debut is a classic and in 'If the sidewalks talked' you have a peach of a song - full of emotion with a brill raspy vocal and great guitar. Anyway, I disgress, this lastest Stan Bush release is a must have in my book.

From: z4roxx Date: November 7, 2006 at 12:50
Wow!I think it's my fave of Stan Bush's discography.Nothing is modern or too generic,just awesome songs from one of the greatest world talents in Aor.

From: juan carlos Date: December 7, 2006 at 9:14
Otro buen disco, suena bien fresco, la producci'n sigue sin gustarme del todo por lo seco del sonido en general. Los solos son lo mejor del disco, obviamente que primero la voz de Stan! Tim Pierce/Stan Bush que nombrecitos ehh.. La 4,6,7,8, y 9 son mis favoritas. El coro en 'The Chance You Take' es muy infeccioso, no me lo saco de mi cabeza, Grande Stan! 8.7/10

From: Melodiker Date: March 7, 2007 at 4:48
Wonderful music from Stan the Man ! His Voice is good as ever ! Buy or die ! 9\10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 13, 2011 at 21:02
Relaxed album by one of the 'AOR masters' Mr Stan Bush...mostly mid tempos but with the unique style that Stan delivers...best shots 4 me are 'Have You Ever Believed','The Chance You Take' & the japanese bonus track 'Don't Say It's Over'...'Falling','I Will Be There','I Turn To You'(catchy song) & 'Say It Ain't Love'(nice song) are also recommendable ones too...nothing else much to say but to buy!!!.93/100
