Pretty good album. They made a decent effort to update their sound to the late 80s. This was the 3rd singer they recorded with, and he's very good. The first 6 songs on the album are winners, but the last 4 are totally forgettable. Might be worth getting if you can find it.

simply siiiick

what???!!!!!!! "the last 4 are totally forgettable"??!!! you are crazy!!! every songs in this album are very beautiful!!!!!!

From: Gar Date: May 1, 2003 at 22:19
I stand by my comments. The last 4 songs don't hold a candle to the first 6. Don't get me wrong. They're not bad. They just close out what could have been a great album with a whimper rather than a bang.

From: JOURNEY Date: August 2, 2003 at 7:15
only a word: MASTERPIECE!!!!!! STOP!!!!!!!

From: Date: February 1, 2004 at 14:13
this is very different of what they do in the early days but is very good attempt album.thanks

From: Rycheage Date: March 13, 2004 at 23:47
Lots of AOR/pomp keyboards throughout, and I just can't get some of these riffs and hooks out of my head listening to this!!

From: Nick C Date: April 18, 2005 at 14:58
This was the best of their post John Schlitt releases and is a great album. I was hoping for more releases from the band but although they still gig there seems to be no news of any new releases. This finds the band changing their sound somewhat to great effect and founding member Roger Boyds keyboards are excellent as always. The songs are very strong on this release and I have to agree with Rycheage with regards to some of the hooks...they dig deep! A great band who should've been huge!

No es ni de lejos su mejor album. Aun asi merece la pena. Yo me quedo con "Flat as a pancake" aunque por desgracia creo que no existe en cd. Seguire con mi vinilo.Unos adelantados a su epoca. Pasra seguidores de bandas como 38 Special.

From: z4roxx Date: June 4, 2007 at 15:30
Masterpiece maybe it's a little more but this is indeed a very good work.Clean sounds,very good production to be an'88 release.Only strange thing IMO:refrains are often poor because the song is well arranged and full of interesting parts but in the refrains they miss somethin'...BTW I can give to ti 9/10!

From: girapolli Date: June 5, 2007 at 7:38
hahahahah z4roxx volevo chiederti se ti mancava sta porcheriola brava pure rara----5,5/10

From: juan carlos Date: November 23, 2007 at 17:33
Gran disco de AOR/HardRock sin dudas con una estupenda producción y teclados por doquier que hacen bien bonito el disco, los temas la mayoría alegrones, grandes coros(algunos muy Pomposos para mi gusto), punteos que enganchan y la voz muy buena. "Girl" "Going Under" "Forgive and Forget" y "Break Your Heart"(que temita este ehh..) de lejos mis favoritas. Súper-Recomendado. 8.8/10

From: Kim HP Date: September 22, 2008 at 4:38
Very good AOR/Pomp album with a definitive 80’s feel. Think LE ROUX ca ”So Fired Up” and you’ll get a pretty good idea of what this sounds like. In other words: this sounds more like ’83 than ’88, which is a good thing in my book. In conclusion, if you’re a fan of Thrills, Le Roux and similar AOR/Pomp acts, you’ll have the ”Time Of Your Life” listening to this!
