This is the only CD out of the Bob Catley solo trilogy worth getting. "Steel" is very good and would have made the cut on a Magnum CD circa "Sleepwalking" or "Rockart". The Ten influence is obvious, but unfortunately, subsequent solo albums with Gary Hughes' material seemed a little too made-to-order. This, however, is worth picking up for any Magnum fan.

This is the best album from Bob's solo career, wait for his latest album 'When Empires Burn' I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy...it is pure genius! GO BUY NOW!

The first and the best of the three albums Gary Hughes penned/produced for Bob. Really good in places but lacks originality, someone said it sounds like Ten with Bob Catley on vocals and they are not all wrong. This and the "Live at The Gods: Bootleg" are worth having.

From: illimey Date: May 2, 2004 at 23:14
When I heard that Bob had left Hard Rain to record a solo project I was delighted 'cos truth be told Hard Rain - especially the second album - blew like a proverbial hurricane. When I finally got my grubby little paws on this disc and wrapped my ears round it I was even more delighted 'cos it's mighty good! 'Steel' is the best track here and as I have said elsewhere it 'gallops across gleeful AOR meadows bathed in the rich sunshine of Bob's glorious voice'. Nothing like a bit of self plagiarism!

Uno de mis discos favoritos; y con mucho, el mejor de Bob en solitario. Las canciones son poderosas, casi épicas. Las melodias te envuelven y te transportan a tierras lejanas de leyenda. Armonías extraordinarias, solos grandiosos, una voz espectacular. Una obra maestra.

Bob,i like your tower ! Well done ! 8,5/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 25, 2012 at 23:16
I did love this record but its follower for me has some better songs than this one,well a matter of tastes i guess...i have seen Bob live in concert with Magnum("Wings Of Heaven" Tour)and he is simply an outstanding singer/performer that should be taken as an example for younger generations of singers IMO...in here i'd take these tracks as the top notch ones of the album,"Fire And Ice" & "Steel"(nice AORish) plus tracks 1,2 & 3(nice)...recommended...87/100
