uno de los mejores discos que hay. compralo.... si lo encuentras.

Says "prog rock" in the category column, but is actually closer to no-bones AOR with the odd progressive twist of limey courtesy of the always-pompous Keith Emerson. This was an embarrassing commercial failure but hardly a surprising one, seeing it's basically 3 men blowing the dust off the Asia blueprints and tried to build something with them 6 years too late. Good AOR though, with Robert Berry (Hush, Alliance) doing earnest Lou Gramm impressions on "Runaway", "Chains" and "Lover to Lover".

From: Rycheage Date: July 4, 2003 at 15:42
Another ELP spin-off, this time with Robert Berry replacing Greg Lake and taking the music in much more of a pop direction. In fact, the only track that really qualifies as prog at all is "Desde La Vida". For the most part, the rest of the disc features the upbeat, driving rhythms and simple, hook-laden melodies of pop-prog.

I think that this album has received a lot of unnecessary flak. Yes, lyrically, it's a lightweight 80's effort, but let's face it, what will ever compare to vintage ELP? I think the album works best when it doesn't try to go the prog-rock route. Still, it's probably a good idea they didn't decide to call themselves EBP (Emerson, Berry and Palmer). This is definitely one of my guilty pleasures.

Recently picked this up again for the grand sum of $1.99! Definitely worth that price, but definitely not a classic. Having said that, this set is easy and enjoyable listening with enough song-writing and performance quality to make it a viable long-term player. No-one's gonna gasp with awe over this album, but not many people will yak over it either. So, recommended if you can find it for the same price I paid!

It was just a bargain I bought but is was it all worth ! KILLER album ! 85 points. . .

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 9, 2005 at 1:27
Nice AOR/Prog. album, Simpatico album de AOR/Pror a destacar cortes con esos teclados magicos como son Chains(esta sobretodo un gran corte de AOR), Runaway y Talkin' Bout los mas AOR y los mejores del disco IMO, un disco Ok, sobretodo por estos cortes. el resto de temas mas en onda progresiva que quiza no guste mucho.

From: Spudster Date: December 29, 2005 at 19:50
If you are a hardcore prog/ELP fan you will probably hate this one, but AOR lovers should like this quite a bit. This reminds me of Yes circa Big Generator, but a little lighter. Could have done without The Byrds cover, but the rest is all pretty good.

From: Carlos A. Date: June 23, 2006 at 13:41
Fantastica muestra de la excelente fusion aor-rock sinfonico de los 80`s sin llegar a un estilo tan progresivo, teniendo como miembros a dos pilares de los ELP originales Greg Lake y Carl Palmer quienes con el tal Robert Berry hicieron esta muy breve obra, a mi parecer resaltan los temas Talkin' Bout,Chains(el temas mas AOR),la Opera rock Desde La Vida,Eight Miles High y Runaway,por momentos te hara recordar a las excelentes bandas GTR y ASIA 9/10.

From: Carlos A. Date: June 23, 2006 at 13:48
valga aclarar que el irascible Greg L. no esta presente en esta obra sino Keith Emerson por algo el sonido de sus teclados es la base ritmica predominante de esta obra.

From: z4roxx Date: April 3, 2007 at 10:52
Simply awesome aor,the best kind of 80's aor with a prog touch.Songs like"Lover to lover","Chains","Runaway"and"You do or you don't"make great this cd...9,5/10!

From: z4roxx Date: April 3, 2007 at 11:03
Can I forget the last song"On my way home"???Great!!!!!

From: juan carlos Date: October 14, 2008 at 16:06
Excellent ProgAOR indeed. I agree with Carlos A with his comment here but for me itīs not a classic album though. "You Do or You Don't" "Runaway" "Chains" "Lover to Lover" and "Talkin' Bout" are the best songs by far. 8.5/10
