|This is a wonderful debut of a project that i hope it could last for more than one release as the members of it are pretty busy guys in their own bands...the only issue is that some songs sound very Journey-ish probably because the head of this is Deen Castronovo and if they change that in a second coming it would be awesome as these guys are top notch musicians...anyway most of the tracks are pretty worth the effort put on them(1,2,3,6,7(nice),8,9,10,12,13,14 & 15)...the B/T's with slightly different modificatios(13,14 & 15)are as i've just stated pretty worth the effort...recommended stuff...94/100

|As with any Doug Aldrich project this album was one I expected to likeÖ.having spun thru it a couple of times I quickly realized this is nothing like any of the projects Doug has been on before. I like the blazing guitars Doug is exemplified thru on his previous efforts. This a slab of nice AOR/melodic rock no doubt but it doesnít border hard rock stage I love from Doug. I look for the hints of Castronovo and Blades here but I distinctively hear Alessandro Del Vecchio throughout this release. The players are not the sum of the music on this release. I donít really find any stamp of any of the musicians on this album but some great musicians who play music to perfection even if itís not theirs. With the musicians involved you would expect no less. My favorite songs from this one are Locked Out of Paradise and Strangers To This Life. Itís to be noted this album is way loaded down with ballads which while they are not bed there are simply to many of them. SoÖwhile the music itself is soli

|Nice insight by the TRIPPLE "M" "The players are not the sum of the music" as I could have not said it better. Every musician has their niche of what they can bring to the table in a band. IMO Doug Aldrich sounds like he's playing guitar with one hand behind his back, as he's out of his wheel-house. This is a competent AOR release by the numbers, but the musicians involved blend in more than they stand out. This band reminds me of another genre mismatch with the players involved as I was expecting more with "L.R.S. - Down to the Core ((2014) w/ Michael Shotton (VON GROOVE). Just because you can play AOR/MR doesn't mean you should.

|I think this is a great album. Way better than the L.R.S. of last year(which I didn't find to be to bad). Hard AOR at it's best. Side projects( or whatever you want to call them) are supposed be/sound at least a little different than their(the players)regular gigs. I have no problem with this album(maybe too many ballads) Locked Out Of Paradise is my favorite of the album. I highly recommend!

|Good album, can see why it's on many folks Best of 2015 list. My only slight complaint is the "Del Vecchio" influence. The Saints are three AMAZING talents, with Del Vecchio though, the sound is a bit "fabricated." Aldrich and Blades are restrained; they need to rip it up to shine.

|Alessandro Del Vecchio and his band of merry-men (Blades, Aldrich & Castronovo) produces and delivers a huge album here in the vein of classic AOR/Melodic Rock for any fan of Journey. This could be (well many tracks) very well labeled a Journey album and fans would embrace this whole heatedly. A little heavy on the ballads, but the rocking tracks make up for it. Despite all the controversy with Castronovo, this album could have been easily deemed a classic for all times...but the controversy with Castronovo has created an album that might be lost in history for future listeners. Too bad this band/project could have easily continued on with much love and anticipation for a long time. HIGHLIGHT TRACKS: #1,2,3,5,9,10,11. MY RATING: 90/100.
