From: choykifox Date: April 22, 2001 at 7:05
well if you read all the people involved in this album you'll get an idea of how it sounds. Great hard aor album with rockers and ballads, Hide Your Heart is a cover of a Kiss songs, the same that appears in Hot in the Shade. First Time was a song used in a Coke TV commercial, remember?.

From: ROBBYV. Date: February 23, 2002 at 13:51
Uno de los 5 mejores discos de la historia.Desmond Child,Diane Warren,Billy Steinberg,Tom Kelly,entre otros ceden sus mejores temas a una gran voz como la de Robin.Clasico de clasicos.

From: lastrocker Date: May 27, 2002 at 15:31
Great album!!!really good songs, big sound production and a fantastic vocal performance.not very easy to find in Europe.

From: tomcat Date: June 20, 2002 at 8:02
ah those eighties...drinking coke just because of the commercial and this song...ah those were the days.. nowadays things are cooler actually tomcat@dolfijn.nl

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: July 14, 2002 at 10:23
El mejor disco grabado por una mujer que he escuchado(que no es poco),los temas los compuso en su mayoria el rey Midas de la musica Desmond Child,asi pues tenemos temas que te gustaran de por vida,buenos de verdad,muchos de ellos los interpretan otros artistas como Cher,Bonnie Tyler,John Waite o Kiss.OBRA MAESTRA DEL AOR.

From: robert Date: October 28, 2002 at 9:09
Ya lo creo toda una obra maestra!! y como no del 89', pero¿que paso ese super-año? mi tema DON'T LOSE ANY SLEEP, pero hay mucho mas...

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: November 25, 2002 at 3:53
Super increiblemente soberbio, tremendo, fantástico... Es un disco perfecto. Solo basta ver con que gente lo ha grabado Lukathear, desmond Child, paul Stanley... Si os gusta el hard-Aor os obligo a que os lo compreis BUY IT! 10/10 PERFECTO!!!

From: bruno franco Date: February 1, 2003 at 10:00
Well,there's nothing much left to say...Who have listened this album,knows this is one of the best...ROBIN BECK,please come back!

From: Greg Hall Date: February 19, 2003 at 1:44
This album is the one thing that helped me through some very rough times....awesome sounds, great lyrics...

From: Date: July 23, 2003 at 11:49
No he escuchado el disco entero pero de momento sigue el camino de obra maestra. Los temas me los he bajado del Kazaa y me quedan por encontrar tres: Don't lose any sleep, Sleeping with the enemy y A heart for you. Busco desesperadamente sus tres albumes, y en concreto, esta joya llamada Trouble or Nothin'. Vaya descubrimiento!! La mejor voz femenina de la historia del rock? Uno de los muchos diamantes pulidos en 1989?Yo creo que el mas grande de todos ellos.Calificacion: 11 de 10

From: Lynn Date: July 26, 2003 at 5:26
There aren't many female artists that are worth listening to, but this one definitely is. The whole album is great!

From: koogles Date: September 19, 2003 at 11:54
Solid bundle of AOR tracks, some of which other artists have done (Kiss, Cher, Starship etc.) but handled well by the enticing Beck. I would rate this right up there with Romeo's Daughter, Chrissy Steele, Cher's "Heart of Stone" and other AOR highlights from the day. Any collection of female-led AOR needs this one before it's complete.

From: The Cramps Date: November 18, 2003 at 9:44
me encanta este disco y me gustaria saber la discografia de esta chica que canta como los angeles,por favor poner la discografia por aqui

Esto si q es una Obra d Arte d esas tantas q tiene 1989!!! un 9'5 d 10!!

From: John Date: February 23, 2004 at 14:17
Its the best cd I've heard in a long time. I listen to it every day. Her vocals are so powerful. She has the range of Mariah or Celine Dion, and has this amazing rock edge that really makes her stand out. Best songs are ''Hold back the night'', ''Hide your heart'',''First Time'' which I love and was No 1 in the UK for 3 weeks back in 1988. I am deffinately a Robin beck fan after listening to this CD

From: keepthefaith Date: March 16, 2004 at 14:26
este posiblemente sea el mejor disco con voz femenina,por encima de preciosas y muy buenas voces como la cantante de witness,etc...robin beck tiene una potencia de voz que da escalofrios,encima cuenta con una produccion soberbia.Desde luego un discazo,nunca comprendere el poco exito que tuvo esta chica...de todas formas clasico

From: Craig Chapman Date: March 30, 2004 at 6:44
I liked the Coke song but doubted they'd be much to back it up. How wrong I was. Sorry, but the ladeez don't normally produce great AOR, often comes across a little cheesy, but Robin sounds fantastic. Some strong songs do help, best set I've heard since Cherie & Marie Currie joined up with most of Toto. Thak God it's on CD too, I only had the tape to start with

From: JESSICA96FISH Date: April 13, 2004 at 17:01
HI CRAIG.LADIES DON'T ROCK?ARE YOU MAD?HAVE YOU HEARD SUCH THINGS AS WITNESS LAOS DARBY MILLS PERFECT CRIME JOAL FIGHTER.YUO NEED TO GET IN TUCH WITH ME TO BE RE EDUCATED.louise@winsor2207.freeserve.co.uk

From: TIM (2) Date: May 25, 2004 at 4:23
Have just managed to get this on CD as my tape had worn thread-bare. Great stuff, and according to her hubby James Christian, her new stuff is as good as this. We'll see, but this and 'Human Instinct' are essential AOR releases. THE best female singer in the business...

From: TIM (2) Date: June 28, 2004 at 7:39
P.s. Just to add, her new stuff is certainly not as good as this! Have heard some snippets from "Wonderland" and it sounds like soul music. Apparantly Christian had quite a big involvement in it, which makes it even more surprising that it sounds so bad. A definite try before you buy...

From: Quarterboy Date: July 14, 2004 at 10:53
Por si a alguien le interesa,ya q algien lo a preguntado por aqi,los discos d Robin beck los podeis comprar en www.sunrecords.net,eso si,a 1 precio bastante elevado y copias limitadas,pero algo es algo.

From: West Of Sunset Date: August 3, 2004 at 0:06
Best female rock cd ever!!! Killer songs and the best woman in front of a mic. Robin is miy fauvorite female singer without any doubt 10/10 Contact: westofsunset@hotmail.com

From: Straycat Date: August 7, 2004 at 16:49
This is a fantastic album! Sleeping with the enemy is my favorite song.... but the entire album is AWESOME!!!!!!!!

From: Jonny_B Date: September 1, 2004 at 22:02
Her debut is still her best. Enuf said.

From: Geoff Date: September 1, 2004 at 22:23
Now this is a lady who knows how to use her voice for the power of good! This CD is a long-time fave of mine, with killer tracks like 'Don't lose any sleep' and 'Save up all your tears' being two of my faves'. Elsewhere, the tracks she had a hand in writing, 'Heart for you' and 'Sleeping with the enemy' are just f*cking outstanding. The rest are good Desmond Child-style tracks and overall a great album. I love it!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 3, 2005 at 1:53
Wow!!! for me The Best album made for a Woman, QUE PUEDO DECIR!!! para mi tambien es el mejor album hecho por una mujer dentro del AOR y de Todo el Rock, Una SUPERJOYA, ademas encuentro 2 mis temas favoritos de AOR de todos los tiempos por una femina hablo de las Descomunales A Heart For You Mi numero 1 de todas la que lidera mi TOP y If You Were a Woman (And I Was a Man) otro tema Demoledor sin duda los 2 mejores cortes, despues tenemos Grandes cortes como:

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 3, 2005 at 2:01
Sleeping With the Enemy, First Time, Don't Lose Any Sleep, Hold Back the Night, Save Up All Your Tears... Todo el disco es Descomunal los 10 Temas son Cortes contundentes que convierten a este Disco en el Numero 1 de todos los hechos por una mujer, nadie puede dejar de tener esta JOYA porque es Imperdonable. Saludos desde Ica-Peru de Rafael Grieve el Legendario "Ave Fenix".

From: Lovedrive Date: May 31, 2005 at 8:33
Buenísimo! If you were a woman, In a crazy world like this.. que temazos. Una de las más grandes junto con Fiona, Joan Jett y Nancy Wilson.

From: biurri Date: September 13, 2005 at 8:52
Im-presionante que diría Jesulín de Ubrique. De los mejores discos de AOR que he oido en mi vida que son unos cuantos. Con esa voz, esos compositores y esa producción no podía ser de otra manera. Imposible destacar un tema por encima de otro porque todos están a gran nivel. Si lo tuyo es el AOR y no te gusta este disco no eres de este planeta.

From: AUGUSTO Date: November 15, 2005 at 12:17
IMPRESIONANTE!!!!!DISCO PERFECTO, NI UN TEMA DE RELLENO, TODOS GANCHEROS, LOS TEMAS QUE TE DAN GANAS DE AMAR Y ESCUCHAR A TODO VOLUMEN, SI SOS FAN DEL AOR, IMPRECINDIBLE EN TU COLECCION

From: victordeaor Date: March 15, 2006 at 13:18
Sin duda alguna, el mejor disco de AOR con voz femenina... y uno de mis discos favoritos del genero!. Todos los temas merecen la pena desde el rockero Hide your Heart, hasta el ultra conocido First time...aunque si tengo que destacar un tema save Up all yours tears me pone el vello de punta. Imprescindible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!10/10

From: Carlos A. Date: March 30, 2006 at 13:34
Despues de casi 18 años escuche el disco y la verdad que el estilo hard y la forma de cantar de RB.deja atras y bien lejos a tipas como PAT BENATAR, ni un tema defrauda....supertemas: HIDE YOUR HEART,HOLD BACK THE NIGHT,TEARS IN THE RAIN etc etc..los temas son tan buenos q si no estuviera el tema de coca cola no se le extrañarìa.. 9/10 saludos desde Peru

From: kipvanpearcy Date: April 7, 2006 at 14:28
A classic ... "Hold back the night" is my favourite song on this CD. The rest is excellent too, full of hits. In the vein of Fiona Flanagan and belinda Carlisle, only more powerful.

From: Melodiker Date: July 31, 2006 at 11:38
First Class Album ! 9/10

From: lalorock Date: September 8, 2006 at 15:50
Excelente album de aor cantado por una mujer,Robin Beck en este album demostró dominio vocal,feeling para imprimir en cada canción asi tenemos canciones de gran nivel como ese comienzo Hide your heart,don´t lose any sleep temazos donde impera el buen gusto y melodía,if you were... con unos coros tremendos,hold back the night (mi favorita)que canción!!,save up all your tears teclados bien puestos y envolventes, in a crazy world.. temazo,baladas tears in the rain,first time de primer nivel,discazo

From: juan carlos Date: May 8, 2007 at 16:48
Superlativo es la definición para este disco y es que Robin Beck se juntó con los mejores sin dudas, aunque las voces femeninas no me van mucho. La 1,3,4,5,8 y 9 mis favoritas. La producción es A1 y la selección de temas está excelente. "Don't Lose Any Sleep" está muy bueno pero la versión que hace Jim Jidhed en su disco solista lo deja realmente chiquito a la de Robin Beck IMO, y "First Time" pues prefiero la otra versión (la mundialmente conocida y con un mejor solo). Instant Classic. 9/10

From: juan carlos Date: May 8, 2007 at 16:55
Y que bueno ver que el primer comentario sea de un Peruano, saludos pues al amigo ChoyKifox, se te extraña tus comentarios man!

From: juan carlos Date: May 11, 2007 at 23:40
Ajá jajaa.. Por fin Ricardo, pensaba que estabas en Plutón jeje.. Haber si comienzas a comentar discos x aquí (claro si la seño, digo si el tiempo te lo permite ) La versión que te digo de "First Time" lo tengo en dos compilatorios de esos que se titulan "Los mejores del Siglo" y otro de "Best female Bands" y el solo de guitarra es muy buena (estos días te lo paso). Saludos.

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: October 7, 2007 at 14:03
Bueno, yo respeto las opiniones de todos los demas colegas, asi que voy a expresar brevemente la mia, la cual tambien merece respeto: Si, un gran disco de AOR, aunque no me parece una joya, ahi si discrepo. En mi opinión, el mejor disco de AOR con voz femenina es el "Brigade" de HEART, o su album homonimo del 85, o quizá el "Tropico" de la maravillosa PAT BENATAR. Pero eso no quita que éste sea un excelente album que cuenta con el punto a favor de tener detrás por ahi a Desmond Child ...

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: October 7, 2007 at 14:09
en la producción y en la composicion. Y otros colaboradores de lujo entre los que destaco a Steve Lukather y a Paul Stanley. Mención aparte la maravillosa voz de la hermosa Robin Beck, afilada, potente y llena de matices. Aunque me gusta mas la version de KISS, "Hide Your Heart" es un esplendido tema donde te encuentras con esa gran interpretacion de la guapa Beck. Destacan tambien "Save Up All Your Tears" y "Hold Back The Night". No uno de los mejores en mi opinión, pero si un gran disco

From: Maxi Date: February 21, 2008 at 7:39
Holy Crap..what a fantastic AOR/melodic rock CD! an amazing debut from Robin Beck, when she start doing a solo! look out the musicians that involved, imagine what sound would they make..incredible!!! from the first track to last had an outstanding songs! Robin had a fantastic voice, she really knows what she sing (theme, lyrics & arrangement). I finally have this CD..what a blessed..I Love u Robin, you really kick start my heart! 9.9/10

If you want the worldwide version of First Time you should get the German version (Trouble or Nothing). The intro in "If you were a woman and I was a man" is censored.

From: 123charpenay Date: June 19, 2009 at 11:40
one of the best aor female cd s ever.a priority buy the 2009 reissue with 4 fantastics bonus tracks.all songs are playing by musicians of house of lords with add of tony denander.a dream

From: happy2849 Date: January 13, 2011 at 12:57
I don't have too many melodic rock/AOR cd's with females taking the lead. This is one that stands out. The right ballance between songs that should have something for everyone!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 3, 2011 at 11:43
Brilliant release and far the best in her career...centuries ago while living in England (80's) got myself this one on tape!!!(tapes are out of fashion nowadays ) and well now it's time for me to write a comment and say that basically this is a must have!!!...solid songs with plenty of "hits"...the great opening "Hide Your Heart" originally by Desmond Child(like some others on this record) and covered by the likes of Kiss & Bonnie Tyler to mention some,"Don't Loose Any Sleep","Save Up All Your Tears","In A Crazy World Like This","A Heart For You" & "First Time" are songs that will put a in your face but sincerely the whole album is top notch and well worth to have...98/100

From: Kralli Date: November 27, 2011 at 17:28
One of the few cd's that really are truly perfect.

From: hair metal again Date: March 4, 2014 at 1:09
ROBIN BECK s debut is a masterpiece of its kind and it reaches perfection!all the songs could rule the charts and i believe that the strong point was the use of more guitars than the usual of such releases!the only problem of those releases is that they werent part of a scene!overall a classic!
