Pretty average Melodic Rock, nothing new to offer for me. "In For The Count/Balance" were Great albums but this return has not that same level. "Forever" "Where the Rainbow Ends" "Old Friends" and "Winner Takes All"are good ones in that order but the rest is forgettable in my opinion. 7.5/10

Good album, with some nice Pomp.Peppy Castro's voice does however, on occasion, sound strained.

Some of the songs on here are really really good, make that REALLY good and were written for the follow up to the mighty 'In For The Count' album and you can really tell. Stylewise, this is 100% Balance, from Kulick's guitar (which sounds excellent) throught to Peppy Castro's unmistakable voice. I heard that the production on this new one was really bad, but after two initial spins, it isn't too bad at all, I think the worst culprit here is the drum sound and generally muddy mix, It's not great admittedly, but I have heard alot worse in recent times to be honest and it certainly didn't ruin my enjoyment of it. Complaints have also been aimed towards Peppy Castro's vocals, and whilst I agree he doesn't have the voice he used to (who does nearly 30 years down the line), He still sounds ok to my ears - I think some of the reviews are being a little harsh to be honest

Overall, thankfully, this is really a good album and not the disaster I have been reading about. It would have been great to have had the mega production of their previous 2 discs, which would have given this higher marks overall, but as it is, this is a disc that I really am going to be playing for a long while to come. Don't necessarily believe what you read.

Are there any guest musicians on this album? A few websites are listing Bruce Kulick for playing additional bass on the album. Is that true?

Bass is played by all three of the guys so it's says.

From: motley Date: March 10, 2009 at 7:07
I asked Bruce kulick about it and he confirmed that he played some bass on this album. Perhaps he is only doing it uncreditted.

Hmmm ..., as much as I like the songs and melodies, I do have an issue with Peppy's vocals. He is "off" quite often, which is a real pity. I am not too cencerned about the production, though. I am not going to spin this one very often, I am afraid. There are much better releases out there.

Not a so special come back but the first 3 tracks at least makes you wonder that this could have been a good release because of what the band represented back in the day with its 2 previous 80's releases...modern Pomp/AOR and with some direct rock added..."Twist Of Fate","Breathe" & "Old Friends" are directly into my book of faves then "Liar","Walk Away" & "Forever"(catchy) followed...nothing else 2 add but to wait the band's 4th effort...84/100
