From: Logan-Five Date: August 15, 2001 at 16:09
Being a big fan of Tyketto and Danny Vaughn's voice, I really liked this album. Waysted were one of those bands that several band members went off to make it with other bands, Vaughn went to Tyketto and Johnny Dee of Britny Fox toured with these guys once.

From: gary will Date: August 23, 2001 at 12:01
this is a fantastic album.if you haven't got this getit...and get it now!

From: James Date: September 23, 2001 at 16:08
This band is great. Wonderful vocals by Danny and the music if great. At times I forget who I'm listening to and think of Tyketto. You can hear where they got their sound from. Get this Album

From: Frank Date: November 7, 2001 at 19:41
What an incredible freshman effort from a then unknown Danny Vaughn! Simply awesome... Nothing like vices, pure melodic paradise!

From: CC Date: February 20, 2002 at 22:42
Most people do not know this andprobably don't care but the drummer on this CD is the drummer from BRITNY FOX. Johnny Dee.

From: samolice Date: May 17, 2002 at 13:01
Sorry guys but i disagree. Songs are good but this band was made for rock 'n roll not AOR or something like that. Fin, the 1st singer is gone and nothing will never be the same (even if Vaughn is of course a good singer). I return to the precedent album... 6/10

From: Shoemaker Date: May 18, 2002 at 4:43
Vaughn is one of the worst singers I know, together with Lenny Wolf, Udo Dirkschneider, and the guy from 'Glory Bells' Glory North they all suck a lot!

From: Shoemaker Date: May 18, 2002 at 4:44
But I like 'Heroes die young' and 'so long'.

From: The Prophet Date: May 19, 2002 at 8:39
I really like this one. My favs are Hell comes home and Heaven tonight. Danny has been kissed by the gods of AOR, his voice is awesome. One of my favorite all time singers, togheter with Kelly Hansen(Hurricane). Somebody may not like him, but put him between the worst singer seems excessive to me.

From: JohnnySick Date: June 12, 2002 at 6:48
I never owned this record but I remember seeing a video back in the day. Currently, I find myself day after day singing the chorus to 'Heaven Tonight'. Man, that was a fucking catchy song. Whomever wrote that melody sure wrote one that lasts. Awesome song.

From: licknspit Date: June 12, 2002 at 16:43
Well i thought this was a great melodic rock cd and pete way could always pen a good tune(listen to wild willing by ufo!) but i still think that Vices was the best thing he ever did! Sleazy and love loaded just explode into greatness. im just putting together a demo cd of the last thing waysted did with jon devrill and eric gammans pure melodic BLISS!!

From: koogles Date: July 14, 2002 at 9:18
If you liked the first two Tyketto albums, this is a CD that you MUST own. I know it's expensive, rare and you may have one less leg, arm or testicle after you buy it, but damn! it's good. 'Heaven Tonight' is pure AOR heaven... probably the best thing Danny Vaughn has ever sung. 'How the West was Won' is also tailor-made for his singing style.

I finally snagged this gem. It's worth every penny I paid for and a whole lot more.

From: Date: December 27, 2002 at 0:14
I'm listening to this cd know.I've got a reissue from Amazig Rediscovering Ltd. from 1996 this cd has got a bonus track.I think that is an strong CD and a killer relase, more hard rocker than Tyketto.For me the best song is Heroes Die young it's the climax of the cd, the other songs are an excellent complement to this killer song i think.Danny Vaughn rocks here!!! For

From: steve Date: December 28, 2002 at 17:43
i just found a copy of this album in my friends attic, and i think i just made the discovery of a lifetime.This is the best Waysted album by far, and rivals anything Dannys done since

From: manos Date: December 28, 2002 at 21:55
This album can be viewed by 2 different perspectives. The Tyketto fan's perspective and the UFO fan's perspective. Being a Tyketto fan myself, this album is a great sample for me how Danny was sounding before joining this awesome band called Tyketto. Some great tunes, 'Singing To The Night', 'How The West Was Won', 'Heaven Tonite'' are just great. Owing 'Vices' and the mini, self titled LP by Waysted, I still think this is by far their best release. Greetings to all the fans, from Greece

From: reebboy Date: February 25, 2003 at 8:04
It has been quite some time since I listened to this album but I do remember that every song was great. Worth every penny if you can get it.

From: Jason Date: May 2, 2003 at 14:43
My cd has a different cover of a muscular guy holding a sword,,whats up with that?

From: Gar Date: May 2, 2003 at 17:44
The cover shown above is from the British version. I have the American release with the muscle guy on the cover, too. This is an incredible album. The version of 'Heaven Tonight' on this is one of my all time favorite songs from any musical genre. The cd is expensive, but it really is worth it.

From: jeff Date: May 20, 2003 at 20:12
This is not only the best Waysted cd, but one of the best rock cds ever. I saw them open for Iron Maiden. Maiden should have opened for them!

From: Johnny Sick Date: June 29, 2003 at 16:53
'Heaven Tonight' is quite simply the best hard rock (or metal or whatever) ballad ever. It kind of sounds like Survivor with a lot more balls. The melody is impeccable. It barely edges out Helix-Deep Cuts The Knife and L.A. Guns-It's Over Now. All of these seem to be lost or criminally underrated at best. I would kill to be able to write hooks this good.

From: Trick Taylor Date: June 29, 2003 at 22:32
This is the hardest SURVIVOR album ever made!! Anyone who loved VICES must have puked in their beers after hearing this poodle-rock crapwich for the first time. I know a lot of you love this disc, but I loved VICES and this is a mistake compared to that classic slab. Danny Vaughn sucked in Waysted, ruined a potentially hard edged Tyketto and just needs to go away. His voice is too clean for even Stryper! Pete Way ought to be ashamed of himself (and I bet he is).

From: CC Date: November 1, 2003 at 22:29
This album has also been released in its demo format as 'Wildnerness of mirrors' & by all accounts it sounds better as its rawer & less polished!

From: stevie b Date: February 4, 2004 at 10:42
Danny Vaughn one of the worst singers ever?????? Rubbish the man is a vocal god as well as a really nice guy I met hima couple of years ago at one of his Vaughn gigs he was really friendly and went on a walk around the audience before and after the show. He has one of the finest rock voices ( maybe musical voices) I have ever heard and proves it on this record. Heaven tonight rocks. Pete Way should have stuck with this band as I saw him with UFO a while back and they sucked

From: mfiasco Date: February 12, 2004 at 4:26
i own this cd...paid A LOT for it on Ebay, but it was worth every's my favorite cd ever.each song is better than the preceding song, in my opinion, which is rare.

From: Tc Date: May 19, 2004 at 9:13
Whoohoo! Save your Prayers gets an official release at the end of May (2004). It will be on the Majestic label. Tc

From: Chad Date: May 30, 2004 at 0:48
Great album, Danny Vaughn is superb on vocals. Check out his Soldiers on Riverside album too. This cd is one that I play weekly. It has it all, from rockers to ballads.

From: dale Date: June 22, 2004 at 3:56
this cd just got a re-release, with 2 bonus tracks. cost about $25. now i can finally hear it!! dale

From: TIM (2) Date: July 2, 2004 at 12:43
Ok, so maybe I need to listen to this one a little more, but I don't get it. I love Tyketto (well, the first 2) but I'm not getting into anything on here other than 'Heaven Tonight'. The production is pretty flat, and there's some pretty standard hard-rock on here, but it's not really my thing. Just a word of warning for those Tyketto fans rushing out to get this re-issue, as not all of you will love it as much as those above...

From: CC Date: August 6, 2004 at 10:34
Better to buy the reissue & be disapointed than to have bought the over priced original & be disapointed,they should at least give it a try at this price! Shame Danny wont get any money from this re-issue seeing as Way took advantage of a naive 24 year old & didnt credit him for any of his song writing!

From: Date: August 8, 2004 at 16:45
going thru all my old promo videos at the weekend ( i used to work at EMI) i found the promo video for 'Heaven Tonight' by Waysted, so if anyone wants a copy, feel free to email me at: and i will happily oblige. I like 'Save Your Prayers' but too AOR for me and i prefer the real grit of 'Vices'

From: Wotty Date: August 12, 2004 at 13:45
Trying to find this anywhere in the U.K. over the years was almost impossible.Having played the vinyl to death,they finally put it on cd,and HEAVEN TONIGHT was back.Waysted play HARD/AOR on this,CLASS...

From: Dean Date: August 24, 2004 at 10:35
Never gave this one too much of a chance except for 'Heaven Tonite' That song has always ruled but i can not believe how great the rest of the disc is. 'Walls fall down' is a perfect example of how Danny can put an edge to his voice when he chooses. This one has def. stood the test of time. 8/10

From: Wotty Date: August 24, 2004 at 11:04
Hi Dean.Heaven Tonight and How The West Was Won,two examples of quality,on what was a classic 80s album that still easily stands the test of time.

From: Nanteau Date: September 27, 2004 at 15:06
Have you ever listened to the ballad 'So long' and get this creepy feeling when unlucky in love or so..? -Sure you did! It's some of the BEST ballads in AOR/Hard Rock I ever listened to.. and that's a fact!! You may easily see this along with Heart's ALONE or Whitesnake's HERE I GO AGAIN ! Almost the rest of the songs, especially WALLS FALL DOWN & OUT OF CONTROL, are perfect solid Hard Rock songs. Rock on

From: Eric Date: November 4, 2004 at 14:09
I saw Waysted open for Iron Maiden in support of this album. I had seen the Heaven Tonight video and was hooked. I wore out the tape I had and started looking for the CD. Finally in 200 I picked it up on E-Bay for 65 US dollars. Heaven Tonight is just a song that stuck with me throught the years and to this day is one of my favorite all time songs. The entire album kicks ass but this is the song I wanted.

From: Rene Date: November 24, 2004 at 13:46
Very good album. Sound a lot more melodic then their debut album. Great Melodic hard rock. If you like the first album by FM you will also like this album.

From: Rene Date: November 25, 2004 at 13:36
If you like NIGHT RANGER you will love the song HEAVEN TONIGHT. Sound so much like that American band that you will LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE it.

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 20:34
One thing's for certain ; You never have to wonder if Pete's new one is going to be a rip off. He never disappoints. This is a strong piece of work.

From: Mr AOR Date: February 26, 2005 at 23:58
This is one of the finest albums I own. It just doesn't get any better than Danny Vaughn's voice. How can your spirit not soar when you hear 'Heaven tonight'? AOR genius!!!

From: MikeL Date: March 7, 2005 at 11:15
When to high school with Johnny Dee. He never let his dream die and was rewarded. Big Neil Peart fan growing up.

From: forza-orietto Date: October 28, 2005 at 19:13
just listen the opening track or 'heroes die young' to realize that is one of the best ever. The best singed by D. Vaughn! 98/100

From: juan carlos Date: October 13, 2008 at 22:40
Yeah, Great melodic HardRock with AOR touches, maybe a classic but not to me. Great voice of Danny Vaugh without any doubt and great Choruses/Riffs. "Singing to the Night" "Heaven Tonight" "Hell Comes Home" and "Black and Blue" are the best. Tracks 8,9,10 & bonus tracks are average songs imo. 8.8/10

From: erik Date: June 23, 2009 at 15:49
some complete mor.n here is calling danny vaughn a bad singer. glad to see who tho.... in line here with juan carlos. good but not great melodic rock. best songs for me Black and Blue, Singing to the Night, Heaven Tonight. How the West was Won, Wild Night and Out of Control. 80/100

From: the rocker Date: January 12, 2012 at 12:32
This is just ok stuff here. Danny has one of the best voices in Melodic Rock, and is one of my favorites! Heaven Tonight is the clear stand out here, with other good ones- Black & Blue, & Walls Come Down.

From: hair metal again Date: October 11, 2019 at 12:28
very good release for WAYSTED back in 86 with an all star line up and imho Paul Chapmans guitar work stealing the show!typical mid 80s commercial US hard rock music with a certain quality ,but also not any big song and that s the reason for not having proper success!great production and a nice feel though !
