This a a fantastic cd. Laid back in places, hard rocking in others, a range of styles of songs, but fantastic melodies throughout. Strangely, Cold Surprise and Running to Stand Still share the same melody line, but in completely different ways. Best songs, Sailor's Song, Watershed, and Running to Stand Still. Hell, if you can get it for less than $2 on Ebay, you wont be disappointed. A corker.

From: jarett r. Date: November 1, 2002 at 15:28
weren't some members of southgang in this band?

From: koogles Date: December 12, 2002 at 4:04
Wasn't John Payne (later in Asia) in this band?

From: Sandi Glam Date: December 18, 2002 at 5:17
No, Southgang was known Byte the Bullet before they got signed, but that was a totally different band than this one...

From: AORMASTER Date: April 1, 2003 at 6:41
THIS IS A FANTASTIC SLICE OF AOR. Very Highly recommended. Asia's John Payne guests on backing vocals on this disc.

Otra Gema del 89', este mucho mas tranquilo, casi west coast. 6'5 d 10!!

From: peter poland Date: March 25, 2004 at 5:46
Nice late 80's opppy aor album.At the moment a little bit overrated.

From: Rockhead Date: March 25, 2004 at 7:57
Sorry-I thought this Cd sucked from beinning to end with little to inspire future listens. I recently traded it with a japanese fan and glad I did as it would never got airplay in my house.

Forgot how good this one was - had the vinyl & managed to get a copy on ebay for about a fiver - money well spent. As mentioned above typical late 80's Lite Aor well played, well produced and a good allround disc.

From: rocky Date: April 18, 2005 at 9:17
this one is great !!!!!! Actually in some places it reminds me a little of early FM, melodic and nice..To those of you who haven`t got it yet, you have to buy this one.

From: ROBERT Date: April 18, 2005 at 10:13
Asolutamente Acojonantisima Banda!! Esto es lo q yo llamo Buen AOR puro, suave, clasico y Comercial d los 80'!!! Recomendadisimo... Por cierto, alguien conoce alguna d estas bandas?:

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 25, 2005 at 21:57
Good AOR album, como dice Robert a veces roza el Westcoast y tambien algo de Pop y un par de temas rockeros, en Cambio Rockhead esta mal de la cabeza si no le gusta este disco, Mmm y nadie menciona los mejores cortes Change of Heart(Un tema asi eleva cualquier disco y este de lejos el mejor del album, 100% AOR como me gusta), Finished With Love(2 otro gran corte) Edge of the Rain, Faith Healing(el mismo titulo de Ian McCulloch(gran tema de el) jeje q nada tiene q ver) y otros mas.

From: ROBERT Date: July 11, 2006 at 11:23
Grupo Ingles, producidos por Dan Priest, q en el 89' sacaron esta delicia para los sentidos de cualkier Aoero q se precie... Mick Benton es el q manda aki, y ese sonido d Saxo le da un toke muy caracteristico a la Banda, q roza el Pop en algunas ocasiones. Temas a destacar: CHANGE OF HEART - Asi se abre el disco, con el tema estreya, muy comercial y al mas puro estilo Yankee... EDGE OF THE RAIN - Bonito Medio Tiempo FINISHED WITH LOVE - Buena calidad d teclados... COLD SURPRISE - podria haber es

From: ROBERT Date: July 11, 2006 at 11:23
COLD SURPRISE - podria haber estado en el 1š d Dare trankilament. RUNNING TO STAND STILL - Maraviyosa, d mis favoritas BIG MOUNTAIN - HI-Tech Total! SAILOR'S SONG - Normalita WATERSHED - Aki manda el saxo... En definitiva un Buen Album del 89' d AOR yeno d Melodia y Buen Hacer! 6'5 d 10!

From: seba Date: June 1, 2007 at 2:05
muchachos!!estamos ante la presencia de otra obra de arte!!puro aor!!y del bueno!!la verdad q muy fino!!el cantante por momentos me hace a acordar a lou gramm de foreigner,por ej en el tema"Playing at Love"y q temazo q es"Running to Stand Still"al igual q mencione anteriormente,esto es musica q dios nos manda del cielo!!lo recontra recomiendo!!!para amantes del aor sebas06yaryura@hotmail.com

From: lalo r.o.c.k. Date: July 12, 2008 at 20:51
Awesome light AOR,full with great melodies,itīs a mix of different styles but with excellent good taste;Cold surprise and Running to stand still are a wet dream for any melodic rock lover,others highlights are Change of heart,Finished with love,Playing at love and the final Watershed,highly recommended with the eyes closed,if you want AOR at itīs finest go for it,9/10.

From: juan carlos Date: January 29, 2009 at 22:57
"Running to Stand Still" What a fine song! AOR Heaven at itīs best! itīs my favorite song of course! but obviously there are other fantastic tracks here.. You are right lalo, itīs a mix of different styles: Pop, Lite and AOR with plenty of keys. "Faith Healing" "Dark Age" are fillers. 8.8/10

From: aor4sale Date: August 21, 2009 at 9:19
Very good Pop-infused Hi-Tech AOR from this Brit band who only gave us the one offering. A real shame they never did anything else. Certainly one of those releases begging for a re-issue...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 30, 2010 at 19:52
This is a very fine release indeed..labeled as Pop/AOR and definetely an album to bear in mind..."Change of Heart",well what can i tell you about this opening track..being honest with you all,i found out about this track not a long ago while trading a german AOR cd compilation with a friend and this one was in it...well,it blew my mind right away and has become one of the most fantastic AOR tracks i've ever heard in my life!(and that's a lot 2 say)...the rest of the album has very interesting songs such as "Finished With Love" nice,"Edge Of The Rain" catchy,"Faith Healing" excellent,"Dark Age" mellow with a nice chorus,"Playing At Love" beautiful,a highlight,"Big Mountain" rocking one & "Watershed" ends decently the story...get this one a.s.a.p.!.92/100

From: kamd Date: April 26, 2011 at 6:13
my god! What a fanastic work! 87/100

From: MHR Date: November 14, 2013 at 9:39

From: tomdwa Date: July 4, 2020 at 19:48
Indeed, this is a nice surprise! Especially the first half of the cd is splendid, tracks 1-4 and 6 are very, very good. After that, the quality drops a bit, but the songs are still enjoyable enough.
