great stuff from Beckett/Kipner. check out "castle on quicksand". nice mix of Westcoast/AOR here,(even the original "moonlight on water" witch is also to be found on one of LAURA BRANNIGAN`s cds.) absolutely wort checking out.

From: rocketron Date: October 1, 2004 at 6:53
Cant believe there are not more comments here. This is BRILLIANT !! Anyone who likes Beckett's solo album or Planet 3 should give this a try."Dont Throw It Away" ,especially, is superb - but there are no bad tracks here. Get this before it becomes too hard to find !

This is magnificent. Hardly any different from the PLAYER stuff, but PLAYER didn't make an album as consistently good as the 2 Think Out Loud discs. If you love your westcoast as much as me then you need both these discs, but if you can't find/afford the 1st then this will be more readily available. It opens with the best track (one of the all-time westcoast songs IMO) but barely has a filler. Gloriously smooth westcoast with those soulful vocals and some amazing tunes. Do not miss this. 9/10.

AWESOME AOR WESTCOAST!! Pues esto es una maravilla de disco, un AOR Westcoast fluido, melódico y lleno de mucha calidad y unas composiciones enormes. La voz de Beckett inunda con su sello personal temas como: "Castles In The Quicksand" y "Let´s Tall About love", en fin, el disco transcurre con extraordinaria fluidez y esta lleno de buen gusto por todos lados

From: juan carlos Date: August 28, 2007 at 10:33
Los 4 temas con que inician el disco son tremendos, de las cuales me quedo con "Don't Throw It Away", la balada "From Where I Stand" muy buena, la 5 es bien extraña Filler total y la 6 es un POP normal, "Just Like That" y "I'll Find My Way Again"(Kipner a la voz) par de baladas buenas. "Calm Before The Storm" es de las ganadoras como las primeras. Yo lo hubiera dejado en 10 temas al disco. Por lo demas un grandioso album de AOR con toques POP, me quedo con su disco debut. 8.8/10

Didn't think it was so rare,MTM??It's strange...BTW this is not bad,a pretty good aor with some good effort,is the debut better than this??

From: aorfan Date: March 15, 2008 at 9:57
Gr8 aor album, "Castles On Quicksand" is an aor gem.

From: barker Date: September 11, 2008 at 17:25
This is far better than the debut which is well overrated. A really great AOR/Westcoast album this one. Recommended.

From: Swazi Date: July 30, 2009 at 9:55
Absolutely awesome ! Actually I prefer this one to their debut. Everything else has been said already. BUY !!

From: BDrums1971 Date: September 1, 2010 at 22:17
I personally think Kevin Raleigh did a better version of Moonlight On Water. I really love Kevin's solo cd, he has such a strong, melodic voice. Sounds alot like this version with just a little extra "something" in the vocals department.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 22, 2012 at 17:49
Good follower with the same song scheme as the previews one but far from being as fantastic as the aforementioned one IMO ...great melodies,good ballads and mid tempos is what you find in know what time it faves are "Castles On Quicksand"(probably the best track of it),"Way Beyond My Reach","Moonlight On Water","Just Like That"(nice),"Let's Talk About Love","Calm Before The Storm" & "Dancing On A High Wire"...recommended Light/Westcoast AOR album...88/100

Me gusto mas su 1er dicos, este es tan bien bueno.

From: tomdwa Date: March 7, 2020 at 19:57
In the line of their first album, with the same qualities: very clean production, good vocals, excellent songwriting. Personal highlight: Way beyond my reach.
