|Love Dean's guitar sound! "Sword and Stone" great tune.

|Great guitar player-he was the backbone of Loveryboy. I saw him live in 1989 on this tour and he was great.

|Great album from Loverboy guitarist. Dean was highly underrated and a great solid player. Catchy riffs make this one memorable. Definitely worth a listen. Thanks for info Aaron!

|Very good music and very underrated player. 'Sword and Stone,' 'Draw The Line' and 'Doctor" are the best cuts. Is this one still available? I have the record LP but would love to have it on disc!

|Hey! Nice to see this album on a site like this! Here in Calgary we've loved Paul Dean for years. "Sword and Stone" still gets radio airtime, and this one rates high marks.

|Hey other people own this besides me?!?! Still will listen to this cd once in a while and sounds like a guy who REALLY wants to let it rip but c'mon in 89' how much could this guy really "let go"? Stay too close to that Loverboy sound and you're branded "wimpy" and if he strayed too far it would've been a case of "who's he foolin?". So faced with that dilemma this is a great cd by a very underrated guitarist & songwriter!!

|Well said, Tony. Paul Dean had a case of Steve Lukatheremia. "Hard Core" is heavier than any one Loverboy CD, but still keeps its feet in sensible melodic shoes. Paul's voice has all the character of a dustpan brimming with sawdust, but gotta give him credit for trying.

|There's 5 great songs on this one. Shits all over the "machine" album. Get this if you can find it, got mine at metalmayhem.com.

|Good album with "Sword and stone" and "Draw the line" as the highlites

|I bought this album back in 89 after reading about it in Guitar Player Magazine. This is a really good album and a must for every hard rock music collector. The version of Sword and Stone is way better than Bonfire's version on the Shocker soundtrack. Draw the line is another great tune. I have played this album for friends and they have all said, "WOW!!!" Buy it, you'll like it, and you won't regret it.

|What??? You haven't bought this album yet? GO GET IT!!! NOW!!!
||Date: July 12, 2004 at 16:02|
|Good solid hard rock album with consistent songs and quality guitar work. Any fan of Loverboy should naturally pick this up if possible & be ready to rock!! No weak tracks or filler to speak of but I agree w/ previous posts in that "Sword & Stone" and "Draw the Line" are the obvious highlights. Rating 7/10.

|His second release "machine" just sucked. It was more rock 'n roll then rock. Avoid it.

|Great Hard Rock/AOR album, Paul Dean(Vocales, Guitarra, Bajo) y Brian MacLeod (Bateria, teclados, bajo) tambien rodeado de otros buenos musicos, cortes de gran nivel como Action(un corte que tiene esa magia de los 80 que lo hace mi favorita )Sword and Stone(Extraordinaria, me gusta mas que Bonfire e incluso Kiss ups!, segunda), Draw the Line(otra joyita), Dirty Fingers, Down to the Bottom, Politics buenisimos cortes que hacen un gran album, asi que a tenerlo y a disfrutarlo.
