QUE CARAJO PASA, ESTE GRUPO TIENE UNA DE LAS MEJORES CANCIONES DE TODOS LOS TIEMPOS Y UNA DE LAS MAS CONOCIDAS DEL MUNDO ME REFIERO A RAIN, LLUVIA UN CLASICO ABSOLUTO DE TODOS LOS TIEMPOS Y PARA LOS OIDOS DE TODO EL MUNDO, YO CRECI CON ESTA CANCION Y MUCHA GENTE EN EL MUNDO TAMBIEN ASI QUE POR FAVOR COMENTEN SOBRE ESTE GRUPO QUE CON ESE SOLO TEMA MERECEN ESTAR EN EL OLIMPO DEL ROCK Y DEL AOR. SALUDOS DE PERU. SI SONO EN PERU IMAGINEN EN LOS DEMAS PAISES. UN SUPERCLASICO. RAIN ES THE BEST.

Completely agree with the guy above. I grew up in Lima by the 80's and i enjoyed to deaht with "rain". The only thing, it's so hard to get this albun on the net (the vinyl version of rain is much better even)

WHAT HAPPEN, RAIN IS A SUPERCLASSIC SONG OF ROCK.

From: eldiego Date: December 5, 2004 at 12:32
Claro que si, rain es un temazo, tengo 22 años y ahora que tengo la ocasion de escuchar toda las canciones en mi pc, no dejo de escuchar RAIN, me gustaria tener una version en vivo, alguien lo tiene????? Al que quiere se lo paso en mp3(celestetlv@hotmail.com)

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: November 26, 2005 at 17:30
Ultima opinion del Fenix y que mejor que hablando sobre uno de los mejores cortes de todos los tiempos ***Rain*** con un par de videasos imposibles de tener, el que hacen el plena lluvia simplemente legendario y el del local cerrado vestidos de negro con un estilo unico e incomparable, un Marc Hunter con una voz exclusiva de los 80. larga vida a Dragon!!!

Para mi entre los mejores discos del 84',espectacular comienzo con unos 4 primeros temas a cual mejor, bueno vale "Rain" es la joya (ese estribillo es realmente matador) pero es que las otras 3 andan únicamente a décimas, si os gustan temas de la atmósfera y caña de p.ej "Don't Slow Down" de Mr. Mister aqui en este disco teneis esas 4 que sin ninguna duda os van a maravillar,a partir de ahi hay un bajón bastante pronunciado que únicamente recuperan en el tema 8 y 9 pero a otro nivel.RECOMENDADO.

¿Q tal Rafo? Gracias por la bienvenida,me hubiese gustado volver de otra manera pero bueno de momento ha de ser asi.. en fin estos que se presentan ante la gente como administrines ejecutores de gentuza indeseable y que en realidad solo son simplones chicos de los recados,(Royal)unos mandaos,(de Destroyer claro)unos lameculines de 3ª. ¿Tanto te costaba decir que es Destroyer y solo Destroyer quien no quiere que aparezca por alli? Pero tu que decision tomaste tontolaba? pero si tu no eres nadie.

Ahaha that's incredible that in the 80's did exist also the polish death metal band with the same name....ahaha!

Essential !!!

From: Leykis101 Date: February 9, 2014 at 11:02
OK, I got Dreams Of Ordinary Men, while loaded with fillers, and the fillers are downright SHIT!! the good songs on it, are mind blowing and awesome, they make it every bit worth the price I paid, and the fact that it's packed with shit fillers, very rarely is there an album, packed with garbage fillers, that the shear quality of the songs that aren't fillers, is that Im completely content being ripped off, now I've looked everywhere for this Body And The Beat CD, and I cannot get one anywhere, to those who have actually heard this disc, is it worth the headache im going through trying to squire it? is this album as good or better then Dreams Of Ordinary Men?? what or how is it in comparison to that album? supposedly this was the disc that got them out of bankruptcy, and gave them enough cash to hire Rundgren, and record DOOM, I dont want to go through all this stress trying to track this disc down, to find out it's not as good as DOOM, if you are in the know, feel free to let me know!

Hey thanks for all the feedback and replys, you guys fucking killed it, 7 fucking years, I cant wait for someone to reply a day longer, guess im just gonna buy this disc and take that chance.

From: Auslander Date: March 3, 2021 at 12:46
Sorry Lewis, I haven't been a member here for 7 year yet. Rain is an absolute monster of a song- as good as anything on Dreams of Ordinary Men. Cry and Magic are also very good tracks. Apart from those, this album can sound really of its time, not in a good way. Unfortunately, Dragon were more of a hit single band than an album band and every release had about 3 killer tracks of the highest quality and a bunch of very average tracks.
