Say It Isn't So: Wow!!!

From: Jóse Carlos Date: February 25, 2002 at 12:40
¡Muy bueno!

From: tonikki Date: August 17, 2002 at 17:46
excellent,but not as good as the two first.similar to imaginator.

From: Rycheage Date: April 1, 2003 at 2:50
Nelson have really struck the right chord here. This is the perfect album from the guys. Album number four has balanced the great melodies they have become known for, with added power and a selection of great strong songs.

From: KB Date: April 1, 2004 at 1:54
Gunnar and Matthew Nelson really did a great job on this one. It is somewhat similar to 'Imaginator'. My favs on this one are 'Ghostdance', 'Tears of Pain' and 'Love Me Today, Part II'.

From: Marsha Date: April 1, 2004 at 2:40
This is an awesome cd!I have many favorites on it ...Sunset Strip,Tears of Pain,Ghost Dance just to name a few!Plus an added bonus called Feeling's of love All in all a great CD!

From: Rycheage Date: May 7, 2004 at 22:26
I don't think they're that bad. But don't try for a visual here.

From: JOSE Date: August 26, 2004 at 14:30
Sean mas realistas en sus comentarios, si alguien esta pensando que este disco es algo parecido al primero estan equivocados. y si alguien tiene el primero quedense con ese y ni siquiera intenten comprar el 2do, 3er y este disco. Creanme NADA QUE VER CON EL AFTER THE RAIN, no hagan lo que yo que los consegui a un precio muy caro y me lleve una gran gran decepcion y un gran coraje por dejarme llevar por los comentarios de estos zoquetes de arriba. Si alguien quiere este disco hagalo saber.

I heard a lot of good things about this one, but was not too impressed. I still like it and there's a great song or two, but also a bit of the country influence, which I hate. I believe 'Say it isn't so' is a fave, but nothing here overly thrilled me. Good rock album, but not worth the big import prices IMO.

From: caritosmatanza Date: January 26, 2006 at 22:29
Basura. Yo defendí a Nelson cuando el After the rain porque me gustaba la puñetera baladia y porque algunas canciones eran puro hardrock melódico. Además, el batera venía de Vinnie Vincent Invasión, cómo coño iba a ser aquello pop. Pero este engendro por el que pagué una pasta como importación está en el fondo de mi armario muerto de risa. Sí, es más rockero y tal. ¿dónde hay un sólo estribillo notable?.¿alguna buena melodía, por favor?.Puagh 3/10

From: hair metal again Date: October 26, 2010 at 1:05
quite enjoyable release by NELSON im a time when hard rock music wasnt so popular.the harmonies,the guitars,the ballads ,the rockers are all here again in their own style."say it isnt so","sunset strip","tears of pain" are my personal favs.not their best but a good one

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 17, 2011 at 9:00
A middling effort from the Nelson twins, featuring a few strong commercial rock tracks sandwiched in between thick slabs of filler material. Matt & Gunnar continue to showcase their trademark harmony vocals to good effect, and tne whole album sounds as polished as ever, but nothing really reaches out and grabs your ears like they did on previous releases. Granted, nothing here is so atrocious that you wish these guys would lapse into eternal silence, but it does make you wish they would pull it together enough to release just one great CD. They continue to show hints that they have greatness in them, but that greatness only seems to emerge in spits and sputters. Then again, these guys have made a career out of releasing slick, shiny, harmless melodic rock, so they probably figure if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 9, 2012 at 17:28
A good release with some good rocking moments in the shape of "Ghostdance","Say It Isn't So","Who Or Why?"(nice & cool),"Sunset Strip"(cool),"The Silence Is Broken"(killer!)& "L.O.V.E. Me Not"...recommended...86/100
