Existing comments about this CD

From: james Date: October 16, 2001 at 13:57
Really good album. I was suprised , at times Adrian has a Bob Seger sound in his vocals. Almost like Bob Seger singing for Bon Jovi or Van Halen

From: TT Date: November 14, 2001 at 9:52
A really good album that surprised many people as it was not really Iron Maidenish. Good songs and good musicianship. Standout tracks are 2,3,6,8 & 9.

From: Gar Date: August 20, 2002 at 22:38
Back to ASAP... This was nowhere near as heavy as I expected it to be. This is pretty typical 80s AOR music. Not too exciting, but not bad either. Adrian Smith does have a good voice. Great booklet, by the way!

From: Carsten Date: November 30, 2002 at 0:01
Add me to the folks that were surprised. I remember buying this new way back when. The opening track 'The Lion' as well as many of the other songs are classic! Good going Adrian!

From: ROCK666ROCK Date: May 19, 2003 at 12:02
me gustaria saber que proyecto fue el de adrian smith con jamie stewart(ex- the cult) como se llamaba ese proyecto,gracias

From: Miguel Date: June 16, 2003 at 11:01
The Untouchables, que despues se convirtió en Psycho Motel

From: cruise Date: September 15, 2003 at 7:44
This is a really surprising melodic rock album. Not what you would expect from ex-Maiden. Good songs, hooks, vocals and production make this a really solid effort. 7/10

From: Great Dane Date: September 15, 2003 at 11:22
What are you saying.....Irón Maiden doesnt write good songs, Dont play good hooks, the vocals sucks, and so does the production.??? :-)

From: ROBERT Date: December 12, 2003 at 21:26
1º DISCO DEL 89' d la lista d heavy harmonies q tengo y q me gusta. aqui toca muy fino el ADRIAN SMITH, nada q ver con Maiden. un 6 d 10 le doy!!

From: lduarte Date: January 9, 2005 at 17:24
If you like AOR , you shouldn´t miss this cd , sounds a bit like FM or Bad Company but with better guitars keyboards and vocals.The production could be better , but dont expect to find an Iron Maiden record cuase it´s not.This was what Adrian was doing before joining Maiden but many peole dont know that

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 26, 2005 at 23:24
Yeah boys this is a Good AOR album, si un Buen album de AOR y de Rock Melodico claro por momentos algo rockerillos pero con clase, pensar que Adrian Smith estuvo en la banda mas grande y legendaria de Heavy Metal de todos los tiempos para mi(Iron Maiden claro a la par con los Judas), y como no revoluciono ese sonido en la guitarra en el Somewhere in time del 86 pero esa es otra historia, este mundo es del AOR y el album tiene buenos cortes como

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 26, 2005 at 23:27
The Lion(la mejor un corte BRUTAL y nadie la menciona mal, mal ,mal que pasa con ese gusto), Fallen Heroes, Silver and Gold, After the Storm un disco recomendado en cualquier coleccion de todo amante del rock y por supuesto del AOR, esta dicho.

From: aMetalhead1966 Date: December 29, 2005 at 12:49
Got this on tape for a $1.00..don't go lookin for any Maiden here cause it ain't there...it is however very good...Mr.Smith has a very bluesy voice..the songs have a nice vibe to them....It would be nice to have on C.D.

From: Spudster Date: December 29, 2005 at 19:55
This one bored quite a bit. I knew going in it would be nothing like Adrian's past, but it could have rocked a little more. The title track is pretty good, but I have heard bluesy aor done much better.

From: Geoff Date: March 8, 2006 at 20:55
This is a good solid melodic hard rock disc. There are a few fillers, quite a few winners too though. Very good melodic sound. I heard the title track years ago on a Hard N'Heavy video and loved it then. It's probably still my fave, but some good solid tracks here. Good album.

From: juan carlos Date: April 26, 2006 at 14:59
Cierto, muy buen album aunque un tanto extraño pues hay temas con cambios que no me gustan particularmente, medio bluesy pero sin ton ni son por momentos. "the lion" y "silver and gold" son buenísimos pero de ahi solo algunas. "kid gone astray" y sobre todo "fallen heroes" son temas mas AOR y son de lo mejor del album junto a los 2 primeros temas, algunos buenos solos y esa voz me recuerda horrores al cantante del grupo canadiense Regatta. Para mi buen disco, no mas. 8/10

From: Rob Date: June 16, 2006 at 11:46
I thought this was awful. After one spin, it was on ebay.

From: Jimmy D Date: July 15, 2006 at 15:39
Just an FYI...The drummer, Zak Starkey is the son of Ringo Starr from The Beatles

From: BIG-TIME Date: April 28, 2007 at 20:25
Defo agree with the above comments good but not great, 3 and 8 prob the worst for me otherwise its good AOR. They sound a little like Heartland at time's and I love the solo's on most of the songs got that No Retreat No Surrender soundtrack vibe. If anyone can point me to bands that sound like the way the solo's are it would be most appreicated...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

From: peter neal Date: April 5, 2008 at 10:20
A very good AOR-driving album: it could have been better with a true singer.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 12, 2008 at 20:45
I was really surprised by this album.Is a good one indeed!!!.The songs are a mixture of UFO "Ain't Misbehavin'",Fastway's "On Target"(but less poppy)& perhaps URIAH HEEP's "Different Worlds" and "Raging Silence".This was a solo project when Adrian was "Maiden off" and they only recorded this album. After that came The Untouchables and of course Psycho Motel (with little or almost any recognition at all).The starter "The Lion" (powerful)"Silver & Gold","Fallen Heroes (the best-4 me at least-)and a wonderful ballad to close the album "Blood On The Ocean".

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 12, 2008 at 20:47
Definetely a good "experiment" that shamely only recorded this one.This album is not orientated to Iron Maiden fans (is not Heavy Metal).Anyway is you see it,grab it...have a little bit of Rock History!!!.90/100

From: aor4sale Date: August 21, 2009 at 9:15
Ace album from this British one-off project. Adrian Smith went on to the outfit Psycho Motel. Heavier but real good stuff. Well worth checkin' out...

From: MiGoFungus Date: January 19, 2010 at 1:54
Some good tracks here but not a strong release as a whole imo.

From: happy2849 Date: November 15, 2010 at 17:50
Not the best I've heard but still worth keeping. Several decent tracks but my favorite "The Lion".

From: Ydol eM Date: October 23, 2014 at 13:02
Adrian Smith prepared a little surprise for fans of hard aor rock bands from the British Isles like No Sweat, Heartland, Strangeways etc. Nice hooks, good dialogue between the guitars and keyboards, a bit weaker vocal but skillfully mixed in the record make this album interesting and worthy of attention. 80/100.
