|If you don't have this disk What are you waiting for! Get It! Awsome! Thats the bottom line
||Date: August 5, 2001 at 22:42|
|Perfect album! 'Save Me' (with 'Heart On The Run') is the best Fair Warning song!
||Date: December 13, 2001 at 6:43|
|Again too many great tunes to pick just one or two. They put out hit after hit. A must have in anyones collection. Get it today and you won't be wrong.
||Date: January 3, 2002 at 7:33|
|If this one isn't in your collection, I have only one word of advice: GO! That's right, go and get it. This can easily rival any of the top 90's melodic releases: Red Dawn's 'Never Say Surrender', Tour De Force's 'World on Fire', Jaded Heart's 'Inside Out'. These guys were huge in Japan, and after listening to this, you'll understand why.

|absolutely a must have, for all! not a bad or less good song on it! 10/10

|I got this one just for the song 'All On Your Own'...and I'm really glad I did......very nice.
||Date: June 30, 2004 at 12:14|
|This album was pretty much centered around 2 songs in my book: the touching ballad 'All On Your Own' and the soaring anthem 'Sailing Home' (fantastic keys on that one). The rest was fairly generic melodic rock in an attempt to recreate their S/T. This album and the S/T are the only Fair Warning albums that are close to being essential or required. Rainmaker and Four were very disappointing but only because you expect more from Fair Warning. But they are still a very good band.

|What about 'Save Me', or 'Somewhere'? And 'Angels of Heaven' is up-tempo keyboard-filled AOR of the highest order (and remarkably similar to 'Longing For Love' from the S/T). I don't really dislike any tracks on this, although don't think it quite matches the debut. Agree that '4' wasn't amazing, but it still had tracks like 'Eyes of Love' and 'Break Free' that matched the previous albums.
||Date: July 2, 2004 at 9:23|
|Hey Tim, I agree that 'Angels of Heaven' is not a bad song by any means. I guess my point was that the album, for me, had 2 outstanding tracks and the rest were anywhere from just 'good' to 'okay.' I would certainly agree that it's their 2nd best effort (after S/T) and kicks the crap out of Rainmaker and Four. This album sounded more like a follow-up to S/T than Rainmaker did.

|Angels of heaven,all on your own,without you,follow my heart,eyes of a stranger and my favourite of them all the mighty THE WAY YOU WANT IT is the way I want it done.This is an outstanding record.The songs are strong,the vocals great and the lead guitar work by HELGE ENGELKE is top class.If you want more top class songs by HELGE ENGELKE check out his new band DREAMTIDE.

|Another solid release by these guys, with an absolutely killer opening track. 'Angels of Heaven' and 'Save me' are a deadly combination of melodic hard rock brilliance, and 'Somewhere' rates highly too. Again, pretty much all the songs are pretty damn good. This is my favourite Fair Warning release.

|Good songwriting throughout!!!

|This is an all-time fave album, and ranks joint with the debut. Only 'Man on the Moon' is anything remotely resembling a filler (unless you have the version with the bonus tracks), but after the more varied approach of 'Rainmaker' this is back to the bombastic AOR of the debut and is more consistent that the 2nd disc. 'Save Me' is a keyboard driven monster of a track, 'All on your Own' has a glorious chorus, 'Sailing Home' has some awesome keys and 'Somewhere' is as good as AOR ever gets. 10/10.
|From: TIM (2)

|Just to add that I just got the version with the above listed tunes, & 'Light in the Dark' is worth the admission price alone. AWESOME.
||Date: September 2, 2005 at 6:37|
|It is the best album of the band!Don't miss it!10/10
||Date: May 25, 2006 at 9:00|
|Thanks God Fair Warning returned at the their best after the not excellent 'Rainmaker'. 'Go' is simpy awesome, all the tracks are wonderful AOR songs with heavenly refrains, except the filler 'Man on the moon'. 10/10
||Date: August 1, 2006 at 16:28|
|I just dont get them SAVE ME sounds like somthing from Mammas and Poppas or the wonder years, I can just see Carlton from Fresh Prince doing his dance to this. Maybe this band does it for you and I respect that but there is something missing from them...(Like HARD ROCK) I love stuff like Steelheart, Hardline, Firehouse, and Winger, oh well...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!
||Date: December 1, 2006 at 1:09|
|For me,this is the Best Album from the Band ! Pure Class ! Angels of Heaven,Eyes of a stranger,Sailing Home.....etc... Fantastic Stuff ! 10 Points !
||Date: October 7, 2007 at 13:15|
|GREAT CD 96/100 ONE OF their best ! All you can ASK of an EUROPEEN MELODIC HARD ROCK band it's here ! Great singer , HUGE guitar player (great chops & great sound with his 36 frets guitar )good songs with great hooks and HUGE production ! it was one my favorite back in the days and it's still is ! if you pick this one ,four and the early years compil YOU GET the complete picture
||Date: January 21, 2010 at 14:21|
|Still nowhere near as good as their flawless, work-of-art debut, but a fair bit better than the disappointing "Rainmaker." The bombast is back on this one, as the band fired warning shots across the bows of Bonfire and Jaded Heart, letting them know that Fair Warning was a legitimate contender for their melodic rock thrones. Personally, I think your collection can go without this one, but it was definitely a step back in the right direction.

|good release by FAIR WARNING not as good as described above though.tommy s voice is powerful but sometimes is too much ,the guitar work ok and the keys all over the songs.there are also many strong choruses and good songs like "without you","somewhere" and "the way you want it".good release
||Date: December 7, 2011 at 14:18|
|what an awesome album. truly killer songs!! my favs are follow my heart, I'll be there, somewhere, and the songs words cannot express how awesome they are "angels of heaven" and "all on your own". Pure melodic rock/ AOR Bliss! GO!! and buy. buy, buy.

|fair warning is a german band but surprise they don t sound german.absoluty not.is this record a hard rock record?I m not sure.this is the more a o r and the more soft fair warning s album.beautiful songs,hyper super melodic a o r.but this cd have some weak points.track 5 a boring song,track 9 weak aor weak guitar solo and track 10 an average ballad.if you forget this three fillers you have ten hyper melodic a o r songs.only tracks 1 and 11 sound hard, five a o r songs and six ballads!!!a record of the world!!ok five ballads on six are really beautiful but i think it s too much.the balance of the record is not good.the production could be better ,there is a little problem with the treble.too much treble not always clear.
