Fantastic. Not a bad track on this album. This deserves to be one of the top 100 desert albums. Everything works. I highly recommend this as the first that you buy by DRN. The guitar work is great and the riffs are there with great lyrics.

From: Harvey Date: January 5, 2002 at 11:06
Another AOR/ Hard rock classic. As good as debut and that is saying something!!!

From: Steve T Date: July 8, 2002 at 11:01
Classic album.....almost perfect. Nile Rodgers really got the sound right for these guys. The debut is good....Slam is better.

Fab 2nd release. Some of the tracks on this cd are the best DRN ever wote (Tiger In A Dress, Come Back Baby, Stronger Than Steel, Cruise Together) i could go on and on. This really is a must have cd ( as with the debut).

From: aormilwaukee Date: November 8, 2003 at 10:04
I agree with the people above... another great album from this super talented guys!!! a must have 100% good music!!!!

From: galliaubagne Date: November 11, 2003 at 15:06
un album rare, des chansons où le feeling et le sens de la mélodie sont au top du top ; PROBABLEMENT ZE BEST ALBUM OF 1989. EH OUI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: robert Date: December 15, 2003 at 21:51
otro discazo!!!pero ni mucho menos el mejor del 89', al menos para mi modesto gusto.

From: Geoff Date: March 2, 2005 at 6:07
Again, this is awful for those out there who cannot stand funk, like myself. A truly awful disc, IMO, but again - those ballads!!! 'Stronger than steel' is magnificent, but 'Rainbow child' is a whole other story. What a beautifully crafted peice of song. I just burnt the 4 ballads of their first 2 discs and sold the rest.

From: swriter Date: August 2, 2005 at 16:22
got this when released and just rediscovering it, I loved it at the time of release, looking back, not bad, not sure where they fit, kinda aor, kinda rock, kina funk, great songs are Slam, Tiger, and Make it Easy. I have the other two releases on cassettes from the 80's, this is my fav out of the three!!!

From: danoq Date: September 13, 2005 at 0:11
Was no happy with the entire record. The slow songs had hit potential but the rest was a throw away for me. A real bummer because was hooked on the first record. I understand they were HUGE overseas!!! America had NO PLACE FOR THEM and that was a real shame>

From: rocknroll Date: September 14, 2007 at 7:39
This was a good release. Good ballads, nice guitars etc the way we like it. I'd give 77/100

From: aorluver Date: March 1, 2010 at 6:49
Like Living Colour but with better melodies and not that serious and bleak

From: hair metal again Date: March 18, 2010 at 2:49
unique release by DAN REED and his NETWORK once again in the highest level.their music combine elements of different styles and sounds with amazing guitar work and nice keys.the vocs by dan are so soulful and smooth and the songwriting is favs are the sensual "stronger than steel",the rockers "make it easy" and "doin'the love thing " and the great "lover".dan reed rocks big time

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 10, 2011 at 11:13
Groovy album..funk rock and hard rock with pure feeling..Dan Reed was like some kind of sex symbol back in the late 80's or something and that somehow had a price he paid because his music went aside most of the time and people were pending on the lenght of his hair(nowadays he wears a bald head)rather than the music he made...anyway pleasant album with great tracks such as the catchy opener "Make It Easy","Tiger In A Dress","Rainbow Child"(nice one),"Stronger Than Steel"(another nice one),"Under My Skin" ( ),"I'm Lonely,Please Stay"(the best on IMHO and my fave of the record) & "All My Lovin'"(pleasantly nice)...91/100
