If you're only familiar with Ambrosia's softer side then you will be blown away by their hard rocking Road Island. I think Ambrosia is one of the most talented bands in the history of rock. Road Island is simply a masterpiece! Kid no more rocks like no other. Feelin' Alive Again, Fool Like Me, are two great power ballads. How Can You Love Me is the best rock song I've ever IMHO! Endings will leave you wanting more! Do yourself a favor if you like to rock, buy Ambrosia's Road Island!

Opening track 'For Openers (Welcome Home)' is the most well known song off the album, and was not a hit, complimenting the heavier sound. The drums are thunderous,overshadowing some menacing riffs. Ambrosia took a bold step on their final album, pursuing a lumbering hard rock sound totally opposed to the gentle strains of the previous two albums. 'Road Island' was not what the public expected and fared poorly with the lack of a hit single, even though there were some available on the album.

¿Que pasa amigos? ¿Cómo no hay mas comentarios sobre este sensacional disco eh? ¿Qué esta pasando? ¿What is happening? ¿Why there are no comments about this masterpiece? It´s a Sin!!!. Bueno, estamos ante una de las mas grandes joyas que te puedas escuchar. AOR Wescoast, algo mas rockero posiblemente que sus anteriores trabajos y composiciones atrevidas, lo cual, a mi gusto hacen que el resultado sea un grandioso disco. Todos los temas están elaborados al máximo, desde la inicial "For Openers"..

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: June 16, 2007 at 19:49
que es una composicón genial, con lucimiento fuera de serie por parte de cada uno de los integrantes; "Still Not Satisfied" tiene muchos ecos a los primeros trabajos de TOTO; "Kid No More" es una demostración de calidad y velocidad sobresalientes; "Feeling Alive Again" es una balada HERMOSA que te hará soñar; "How Can You Love Me" es un temazo increíble, de lo mejor!!; "Fool Like Me" otra balada de ensueño, con una delicadeza e intepretación vocal geniales; "Ice Age" no le pide nada a ninguna...

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: June 16, 2007 at 19:54
y por ultimo "Endings", un tema con una instrumentación fuera de serie, como lo es todo el disco en general... Si tienen la oportunidad de conseguirse este album, no lo duden, su amigo YIRO SEVENTH antes PODEROSO YIRO, se los garantiza ... And, C´mon, You have to leave more comments about this awesome record... I have only seen a very few comments about this one... How can that be possible??... Vamos amigos, animense... saludos desde MEXICO

Buen disco pero no es para tanto tampoco IMO. Buen solo en "For Openers (Welcome Home)" con la voz de David Pack (con David en la voz no hay canción que no valga la pena, totalmente lo contrario) pero el fuerte de David es en las baladas. Buen solo en "Still Not Satisfied", la balada "Feelin' Alive Again" buenísima y David se decanta de lo lindo, Sin embargo la movida "How Can You Love Me" es mi tema favorito, la tranquila "Fool Like Me" y sobre todo "Endings" de lo mejorcillo tambien. 8/10

Lo vuelvo a decir: ¡Maravilla de disco!... pura elegancia, finura, melodía y clase... grandes David Pack y Joe Puerta!!!

From: darobinson Date: November 1, 2008 at 9:18
This is a fantastic AOR album. David Pack is an exceptional singer, song writer, guitar player. All musicians are of the highest caliber. You cannot go wrong with Ambrosia. This band is one of the best of all time.

From: darobinson Date: August 14, 2010 at 11:15
Check out the video for How Can You Love Me on youtube. Mr. Bruce Horsby on the keys. Anyone know if he toured with the band for awhile? What a fantastic tune!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 18, 2020 at 23:55
Cool album ..."Kid No More" is my fave track and the best cut of the release IMHO...some other fine moments are # tracks # 5,6 & 7...82/100

From: gfranciscop Date: July 9, 2021 at 0:38
The intro sounds like an attempt to return to some Progressive sounds after a more commercial album; then it goes back to a more accessible sound around the half with How Can You Love Me being a high point. In the end I don't remember anything else about the album, except Endings being a great ending track. Rating: 7/10. Favorite Track: How Can You Love Me.
