You see the band FireHouse is like Rock itself..it's a burning flame that can't be put out..these guys kick ass!!!

From: Dragonfly Date: December 13, 2001 at 7:35
On this release they are trying to keep the fire burning. Couldn't get into this one like their last two. A dusty on the shelf 5 out of 10. Sorry

From: koogles Date: January 3, 2002 at 6:57
Most bands by 1995 had either gone grunge or gone away. The Firehouse guys may have cut their hair but they didn't cut the melodicism out of their hard rock. This CD succeeds more on a ballad level ("Here For You", "No One At All" and "I Live My Life For You") than on the up-tempo stuff. Not as good as the first two, but still pretty decent.

From: rioverde Date: February 21, 2002 at 1:00
This record is formidable.Excelent sound and powerfull songs

From: James Date: May 11, 2002 at 7:51
At first listen I wasn't crazy about this album but then it hit me like a ton of bricks. This album rocks. It has a slightly different sound but still unmistakebly Firehouse. The song "Trying to make a Living" is a great song about working hard and not getting paid enough. The opening track just thumps your brains out and the ballads are top's. This album is a solid 8.5 borderline 9. (that line was taken from the movie GONE FISHIN')

From: The Prophet Date: May 11, 2002 at 20:45
In 1995 I was a little disspointed from this cd. I remember a good friend of mine told me "Fuck out they cut their hair and they play soft rock". But now I like it, some lyrics are cool. Not as good as the first two, but not bad for 1995. I gave them 7.

From: Steve T Date: September 3, 2002 at 11:06
The opening song is excellent. After that.......nahhhhhhh. They shot their bolt on the first 2 albums.After that they were finished

From: robert Date: October 20, 2002 at 11:35
aki, para mi ya comenzaron a bajar el liston, y eso q tiene muy buenos temas este disco, pero como los 2 primeros..

From: Baris Date: October 30, 2002 at 2:13
It seems as if they've spent all of their energy in the first two albums, ten years passed between this one and "Hold Your Fire", now they got older and become silent-tempered family men. Where is the Firehouse of crazy summer beach party days? This is unfortunately much weaker and softer than the first two. Somewhat a sad album. While listening you sadly notice that they got older. With short hair they also look like an old soft AOR band. I stopped buying Firehouse albums after this one.Pitty!

From: T-BONE Date: October 30, 2002 at 2:26
What are you talking about? Ths cd came out in 1995 and Hold Your Fire was 1992. Thats 3 years in my math book.

From: Baris Date: October 30, 2002 at 6:42
Don't worry, nothing wrong with your math book. I said "AS IF" ten years passed. Bye.

From: jocantaro Date: October 30, 2002 at 13:19
robert, es ke ya en esos años, a partir del 94 o asi estas bandas de hard rock se vuelven gilipollas, hacen 2 canciones buenas y las demas una mierda

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: November 12, 2002 at 4:41
Jocantaro quizas esa sea la palabra adecuada para calificar a todos estos grupos que a partir del 94 se quedaron bloqueados(QUE FUERON CASI TODOS,¡HAY QUE JODERSE!),de este disco me quedo con las baladas,lo demás ME SOBRA.

From: L.J. Date: November 14, 2002 at 16:41
Señores, tema Firehouse:definición del Hard Rock americano. Vacileo, grandes guitarras, gran voz y temas pegadizos. 3 es el disco de la banda que mejor soporta el paso del tiempo a pesar de que sus temas no sean tan espectaculares como los de sus dos primeros discos. De hecho este disco siempre que lo pongo lo escucho entero, en cambio, de los dos primeros pongo canciones sueltas.¿por que? volveremos a hablar dentro de diez años.

From: pablo Date: September 20, 2003 at 11:54
Es cierto que cambiaron sustancialmente su sonido pero siguen conservando intacta su categoria fue un acierto el que contratasen a ron nevison para la produccion ,en este album graban la que es para mi su mejor cancion "i live my life for you"

From: kskkerim Date: January 28, 2004 at 11:37
I AGREE NOT AS GOOD AS FIRST TWO .BUT PREETY COOL IT DESERVE TO BUY 8/10

From: run2u Date: February 5, 2004 at 0:57
Está claro que los 2 primeros de esta gente son esenciales, Hold your fire cuenta con una producción fuera de órbita. Pero creo que el paso del tiempo ha favorecido muchísimo a este "3". Suena maduro y fresco al mismo tiempo, muy "compacto" y trabajado, tanto a nivel técnico como compositivo. Buff, me gusta mucho!! Estoy de acuerdo con las últimas opiniones leídas: Ron Nevison aporta chaché... y creo que yo también le daría un (bastante alto) 8/10. Espero comentarios. KEEP ON ROCKIN'

From: jack Date: June 29, 2004 at 5:42
this album is in my opinion much worse than their debut and hold your fire album. The songs are more 90's and modern sounding and i realise there is a slight change in snare's singing voice in this album. Nevertheless,its still worth the money if you are a big fan of hard rock!

From: Warhead Date: August 22, 2004 at 20:00
I give them credit for sticking to their guns and not cruizin' the mainstream. Having said that, this album is a goof. Give me a break, silly lyrics and cookie cutter ballads. Buy this only if you have purchased all other 80's style rock and still feel the need to drink to grow the mullet.

From: Geoff Date: August 23, 2004 at 6:20
I've always liked Firehouse (except for 'O2') but this was never my fave album. Good hard rock release, with a few good tunes - as noted mostly the ballads, and I do really like 'I live my life for you'. Lovely ballad.

From: Kip Date: August 31, 2004 at 15:53
I know hardly anyone would agree with me, but this is my favorite Firehouse CD. Trying To Make A Living is one of my personal anthems! The way the song opens and builds is a product of some masterful songwriting. Other highlights include the bluesy Somethin Bout Your Body and Temptation, the beautiful ballads Here For You, I Live My Life For You and No One At All, and the rockin' Love Is A Dangerous Thing. Fans were lookin for more rock and didn't get it, but the quality here is still good. 8/10

From: jeff Date: November 2, 2004 at 14:09
i agree with the last two comments. o2 is the worst from firehouse, with acouple of good songs.and 3 is a great cd. right up there with s\t and hold your fire. i think category 5 is really good except the production was not good.

Respectable release for Firehouse.I prefer 100 times their first 2 cd's but I quite like this one,too.Maybe it's their most different cd but there are remarkable songs with some very good tunes anyway.The opening"Love is a Dangerous Thing"is a great song,"Here for you"is a lovely ballad,"Get a life"is a good linear piece of rock,"Two sides"is another good acoustical ballad indeed.Funky basements here,production and sounds reminds me also a little to Spin Doctors'debut!I'm not jokin'!

From: ghettonation73 Date: November 6, 2005 at 7:29
THESE GUYS HAD SOME BALLS, ALTHOUGH THE THIRD CD DOESN'T SOUND LIKE THE FIRST 2, IT STILL ROCKS, THEY WERE ONE OF THE FEW ROCK BANDS THAT DIDN'T TRY TO SOUND ALTERNATIVE. SLAUGHTER'S "FEAR NO EVIL" IS ANOTHER GREAT CD FOR THE YEAR IT CAME OUT IN. ROCK BANDS THAT STAYED LIKE THIS, AND DIDN'T TRY TO GO ALTERNATIVE I GIVE CREDIT TO.

From: Lovedrive Date: July 31, 2006 at 16:31
Peor que los dos anteriores, pero aun con buenas canciones como la genial WHAT'S WRONG

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: October 31, 2006 at 19:17
ALBUM DIFERENTE A LOS 2 ANTERIORES. CUANDO LO ADQUIRI, HACE AÑOS, TENGO QUE ADMITIR QUE ME SACO DE ONDA A LA PRIMERA ESCUCHA...DESPUES, SIMPLEMENTE ME ENCANTO. EN ESTE DISCO, FIREHOUSE SE ALEJA UN POCO DEL HARD ROCK DE CORTE CLASICO A LO DOKKEN, BON JOVI, DEF LEPPARD, PARA MANEJAR INFLUENCIAS UN TANTO MAS MODERNAS, POPERAS Y CIERTOS TEMAS FUNK("LOVE IS A DANGEROUS THING", "TEMPTATION"), "WHAT´S WRONG" SUENA CONTEMPORANEA A SU EPOCA... Y LAS BALADAS SON LO MEJOR DE ESTE CD, DEFINITIVAMENTE...

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: October 31, 2006 at 19:21
"I LIVE MY LIFE FOR YOU" FUE UN GRAN EXITO, Y ES QUIZA LA BALADA MAS BELLA DE LA BANDA, EN TANTO QUE "NO ONE AT ALL" Y "HERE FOR YOU" COMPRUEBAN EL EXCELENTE NIVEL POR EL QUE PASABA FIREHOUSE CUANDO SE TRATABA DE COMPONER BALADAS... ESTOY DE ACUERDO CON ALGUIEN QUE MENCIONO QUE EN ESTE DISCO, SE CONJUGAN MADUREZ Y FRESCURA AL MISMO TIEMPO... SALUDOS!!!

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: November 1, 2007 at 11:11
HUGE CD 95/100 US HEAVYROCK/ AOR More laid back but huge songs and C.J.SNARE he's still a great singer ! BUY it ....

From: the rocker Date: August 28, 2008 at 19:26
just as good as hold your fire if you ask me.almost like a twin.great cd.

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 3, 2010 at 8:19
While this CD lacked the fierce full-throttle fire of their first two, it's still a good hard rock album (though as others have noted, the ballads are definitely superior to the rockers). With Ron Nevison in the house as producer, the sound is significantly stripped down when compared to David Prater's awesomely over-the-top production style, but it still retains the melodic polish you expect from this band. This 3rd swing at hard rocking greatness might not have knocked it out of the park like a 'roided Barry Bonds, but it certainly wasn't a strikeout either, and it's definitely got its charms.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: February 3, 2010 at 9:32
Somehow, managed to stay signed to a major in '95, and even managed to minor hit (#27 on the Billboard charts, if I recall), making them absolutely THE last dying gasp of hair-metal. Of course, the hit was one of their ballads, which, amazing as it seems, were getting more and more overly sappy as time went on. Which is fine, it's one of their strengths, it's "what they do," guess, but there's only so many goddamn wedding songs a person can stand. So anyway, on 3, Firehouse dials the aggression and attitude down even further, and the result is similar to Mr. Big's Bump Ahead release. Lots of ballads, some unconvincing semi-rockers, and one or two true, nasty, hard-rock cuts. Those would be "Love Is A Dangerous Thing," "Temptation," and maybe "Get A Life." The rest is bound for pussy-whipped mixes for your non-rocker girlfriend.

From: hair metal again Date: March 12, 2010 at 1:43
excellent hard rock release by FIREHOUSE in a different way than previous releases.not so powerful production by ron nevison ,but i think that it suites them very well at that time.bill leverty has not so many riffs ,but the solos are great.cj does his best singing ever in these songs and the band continues its way in hard rock music with great songs like "love is a dangerous thing","somethin bout your body", "noone at all" and "here for you".for me equal with first two releases

From: 123charpenay Date: November 27, 2012 at 13:12
after their two wonderful first cd s this third realise is great but different.with a touch of acoustic guitar,a touch of funky guitars.i prefer their two first jewels whitch are classics in american melodic hard rock.here this record sound differently more dance less hard.i don t hate cause it s a very great band who have lot of talent.i like this record.super production!!!!i recommand the 2008 japan reissue cause there is 3 bonus track.one live "reach for the sky" and 2 studio (excellent).

From: edwithmj Date: October 5, 2013 at 10:41
A slightly more mature sound I feel for Firehouse. As 123charpenay said, there are more acoustic guitars and a mild funk element to some of the songs especially Somethin' 'Bout Your Body and Two Sides. That said, this is actually more consistent than the first two albums. The opener is great along with Here For You and No One At All which although sound quite similar are very decent semi-ballads. Snare's voice is still as dynamic as on the previous releases especially on the great ballad I Live My Life For You.

From: guitarrizer Date: February 14, 2018 at 3:35
Doesn't hit you at first strike but grows up with every next listening. 8/10
