|AOR masterpiece!!! Jimi sings from the heart and the songs written by Jim Peterik are wonderful. The song Lost demonstrate the work done by Jimi, Jim and the band. Excellent!!!!!!!!

|Recent Murmurings suggested that this was basically Pride Of Lions with Jamison on vocals, which in part is true, but there is also more of a Survivor vibe on this one, as you would expect really with Peterik and Jamison together. When I saw that this disc had 14 tracks on it, I was a little worried, as it takes some song writing to come up with 14 excellent tracks on one disc, as has been proven in the past. Usually it ends up with 7 or 8 good tracks and a load of filler. So when I open this baby up and discover that they have also added a 15th bonus track, the alarm bells really did start ringing. On the whole, this just about gets away with it, although I think it could have been slimmed down to a 12 tracker, as there is some filler one here whatever anybody says. When it is good, it is very good, as in the title track 'Crossroads Moment', which is a superb Survivor style track with some excellent 80's style keys in the chorus.

|...All the reviews hailing this to be a 'Masterpiece', 'The best AOR album of the last 10 years', 'Classic' etc etc are obviously slightly over the top in their claims and all I will say is that some people are easily pleased if they do come to these conclusions. Believe me, It isn't close to any of those descriptions at all, but certainly it is a consistent AOR disc, beautifully played and produced, that for some familiar with this type of stuff will like, and others won't.

|After a few listens to this one I have to agree with Jez - a good solid AOR album with a high degree of consistency. The best tracks for me are the run of 3 "Til the morning comes","That's why I sing" and "Friends we never met". Just a point from a UK listener - songs with American places names in them sound fine, but ones with British place names just sound wrong! To a British listener, a song called "Battersea" sounds a little bit silly.

|I must be the only person who thinks this is very, very average and pales by comparison to Jamison's last solo album 'Empires'. Oh, and I have to agree with the post above, "Battersea" DOES sound pretty stupid to a Brit listening to this...it's a home for abandoned dogs isn't it?!

|No Axe-Machine, Iīm with you. The stuff sounds like leftovers from Peterikīs PRIDE OF LION. Not bad, but miles away from old SURVIVOR days. I donīt need such albums.

|Over 20 years his voice emotions me,yet.What an artist and what an album...

|He hasn't lost his voice like other singers and that's a good symptom!!.This solo album maintains somehow the spirit of his time with Survivor but perhaps this one is more solid than the last one he recorded with his former band ("Reach")."Crossroads Moments","Behind The Music" and "Make Me A Believer" are excellent songs and what about his anthem to some bands in "When Rock Was King"(which still is!!!).Anyway great album,great singer and still rockin'..what else can we ask for???.90/100

|Awesome album! J&J magic here! I didn't believe Peterik would create something this good anymore! Much better than those disappointing Pride Of Lions albums which are way too cheesy and gets boring after a couple of spins. Another one of these, please!

|very good hard rock release by JIMI JAMISON with many,many good songs.the sound is very similar to the SURVIVOR releases and the whole vibe as well.highlights here are"till the mornin comes","lost" and "behind the music".but the rest of the songs too are remarkable.to be honest didnt expect it to be that good!

|I didn't even need to look up the musicians on this album to know who wrote the songs. This album has Jim Peterik's musical fingerprints all over it, and he makes a decent effort in emulating Survivor's golden era, but in clocking in at over an hour long, there is just too much filler here. It could easily have been cut down to 9 or 10 songs, with the latter half being featured more: my personal favorites are "As Is" and "That's Why I Sing," and even then the production lacks life to my ears...with Jamison singing, you know you're going to get decent music, but this album could have been a lot better.

|Fantastic album, with Jimi Jamison firing on all cylinders. It's all here: good compositions, crunchy guitars (3 of them!), and a crisp and stellar production. My favourites are Battersea, Can't Look away (sticks in your ear to stay there for several days), Crossroads moment, Lost, Till the morning comes, and Alive (also performed by Van Zant on their album II).
