Un trabajo muy fino, con mucha calidad. In your Eyes es un tema brillante, muy Whitesnake. Gary Hughes sabe componer y tambien de donde sacar inspiración.

From: cruise Date: September 18, 2003 at 12:36
A teriffic album of songs that don't quite fit in with "Ten" although fans of the band will still love this. Hughes is one of the best songwriters in melodic rock today and this is just another in a long list of superb albums. 9.5/10

From: ROB GARCIA Date: January 18, 2004 at 9:27
very good follow up to the s/t album.actually i think this one starts where the other one left off;the production has improved a lot and gary has matured as a songriter.the quality of the material throughout the album is quite high so dont go thinking youll find any fillers in here.totally recommended!!.

Si, In Your Eyes es increible. Esos hooks de la guitarra electrica usando la whammy bar me recuerda mucho ese increible solo de Sykes en Is this Love.

From: Max Date: January 22, 2005 at 0:36
the hook on 'Don't Ever Say Goodbye' reminds me too much of the equally great 'Forget me Not' by Bad English.

The hook

From: perillan Date: January 30, 2005 at 8:44
Mucha calidad en este disco, plagado de temas medios tiempos y temas lentos (donde GH se mueve como pocos en el panorama actual). Este disco podria haber sido facilmente un disco "blando" de TEN, ya que además de la personalidad que este hombre da siempre a sus composiciones, aqui además está V.Burns.

What a poser I am!!! I had no idea Gary Hughes had been releasing albums since 1989. I would love to get my hands on the first three. I have this and it reminds me of a more mellow Ten. Some great songs, some average songs but overall a pretty god album. I think the first track's the best.

From: Axe-Machine Date: December 10, 2005 at 14:20
For many artists this would be the best thing they ever recorded, but by Gary's standard it isn't quite as good as his other solo albums. However, having said that I would have welcomed In Your Eyes, Wrecking Machine and Divided We Fall onto any of his other solo records. Good melodic rock, just softer enough than Ten that it merited a release under the Gary Hughes moniker, although the players on the album are the guys from Ten. A good release. 7.5/10.

I too thought this was Hughes' first solo album but anyway i really like this release. I actually bought this one before I bought "Spellbound" so this was essentially my first time hearaing him. "In your eyes" is awesome but I pretty much agree with what's alreday been said. I like "Precious Ones" too, very nice calm ballad. This Time is a good song too and "Colours" is one of the best ballads he's written.

From: juan carlos Date: January 16, 2007 at 23:52
Personalmente la voz de Gary Hughes es de las mejores salidas en los ultimos tiempos. Sus composiciones sin ser originales pues son muy apreciables leerlas y entenderlas. "The Night the Love Died" es muy especial para mí, bella por decir lo menos. "In Your Eyes", "The Colours of my Life", "Divided By Fall" y "Precious Ones" mis otras favoritas. No es un clásico en mi opinión pero hay temas muy buenos como los mencionados. La producción aceptable pudo ser mejor (como siempre) 8.5/10

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: October 31, 2007 at 23:35
Melodic Hard/AOR con mas fuerzas en sus temas un buen albun de GH con un sonido y un cambio que no le salio muy bien me gusta los temas "In Your Eyes, Don't Ever Say Goodbye" creo que es lo mas rescatable del album pero bueno a comentar sobre este gran Cantante es pura magia...

From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: October 30, 2021 at 22:23
The Night The Love Died. I have NEVER EVER heard a song sung with such emotion. Gave me goose bumps!!! ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! BEST BALLAD HE EVER WROTE-HANDS DOWN!
