From: Rene Date: April 26, 2001 at 17:11
Great album, is pure AOR, in my opinion, songs fantastic, my preferences are: the ballad When the war is over is wonderfull, you can make cry; Phil Bates have a great voice, he is singing with heart and soul, if you never hear this band, find it, Atlantic is AOR, Im great fan, you flying with the wind with Atlantic. Buy it!, Buy it!

From: GUROL GURLER Date: October 27, 2001 at 4:09
Incredible AOR! Yes,I can't find an another word to define this album.Great vocals,great keyboards,great arrangements,great songs...And result: A wonderful album.Every AOR fan must buy this album.Certainly!

From: koogles Date: January 1, 2002 at 10:28
Very under-rated band. Every bit as good as Giant or FM U.K. but without the popularity. The sheer number of well-crafted AOR songs and memorable hooks will take you by surprise. Definitely worth getting.

From: wiljan vriens Date: January 22, 2002 at 17:12
yes this cd is the aor that we all love so much there is no other band like this!! it's unique in every word there is my favorite song is power over me and blasts out of my car radio so everybody hears it!! hehe

From: Nitro Date: March 25, 2002 at 3:40
GREAT CD !!! Listen to power over me great music great rock band Buy or cry

From: Andre Tekken Date: August 7, 2002 at 8:38
With no shadow of a doubt this is on of the finest aor lost jewel!With no predecessors in the music business they appeared as quickly as they disappeared in 94.I would describe their music as atmospheric,charming,straight ahead,melodic aor like early FM and Strangeways(Terry Brock era)!Phil vocals remind me of Dan Lucas.He doesn`t have a high range in his voice but surely have lots of feeling and soul on itI giveit a95 out of 10!Very good record!

From: Andre Tekken Date: August 7, 2002 at 8:44
Also I must say that their original cover who featured a picture of a woman`s lips licking a bunch of dollars!I guess it was rated and the band was forced then to come up with another one!The one which is shown above!

From: robert Date: October 20, 2002 at 18:21
¡q buenos! me quedaria con los 2 primeros temazos de estos buenisimos britanicos. un disco q paso totalmente desapercibido injustamente.

From: Melodiker Date: January 6, 2003 at 14:37
Hossa,ich fall vom Glauben ab,denn diese Cd ist sowas von genial,da fehlen mir die Worte.Gassenhauer ohne Ende ! Da bleibt nur die 10\10 !!! Und ich Depp,hab mir das Teil erst vor 2 Jahren angelacht !

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: January 10, 2003 at 10:00
Uno de los últimos GRANDES DISCOS de la música AOR en su etapa mas brillante.Aunque grabado en el 94 ,los esquemas de su música son propios de los discos que se hacian a finales de los 80,vamos quiero decir con esto que es el tipico disco,que cuando pones el primer tema ya te deja enganchado,un gran disco para gente que haya disfrutado con el Tough It Out de FM,el 1º de Drive She Said incluso como se dice por ahi arriba con los Storm.Ni que decir que un disco este RECOMENDADISIMO.

From: Ernest Date: March 2, 2003 at 23:48
It's exellent AOR,but very poor sound (for 1994).Good album,but it have to be remastered.

From: selfish@tlen.pl Date: May 19, 2003 at 14:51
I like this release. Very catchy AOR, not too hard etc.Ther's no bad songs od it. You'll find great power ballads, my fav is ''nothing to lose''. My recommendation, and i rang this one between 8-9 /10. Worth it's price

From: Great Dane Date: May 19, 2003 at 19:57
Id really like to get this release, but its impossible to find anywhere. Write me if you want to trade kimvestergaard@mail.dk

From: javi-valencia Date: June 27, 2003 at 17:13
que alguien me diga como puedo conseguir este disco, pues segun tengo entendido ya esta descatalogado,los pocos temas que he oido de este lp son impresionantes. javicflm@hotmail.com

From: Jordi bormann Date: September 5, 2003 at 3:21
Javi, si tienes las 3 primeras canciones que aparecen en el album, tienes las mejores aparte quizás de Dangerous Game. Por orden de las canciones que aparecen aquí - can´t hold on, ..., power over me - son a mi criterio y orden las mejores. Si las tienes, olvidate del resto.

From: javi-valencia Date: September 7, 2003 at 14:28
q tal jordi gracias por tu consejo, las canciones que he oido se este lp son las tres primeras pero....¿tanto pierde este lp con las restantes?

From: Jordi Bormann Date: October 10, 2003 at 11:14
No Javi; pillatelo porquè es un discazo pero ya te digo que por orden que las han puesto, son las mejores. La calidad del grupo es incontestable y los teclados están super bien puestos. No hay duda que es una de las joyas del AOR y que te encantará. When the war is Over es una preciosa balada que es de PM. It´s only love yo la tengo como apertura en mi cd. Las canciones estan en un orden rarillo. Si lo encuentras, quédatelo con los ojos cerrados. Te encantará pero habría poder sido mejor

From: Jordi Bormann Date: October 31, 2003 at 6:50
Por cierto, Javi, si te mola este, pillate el Cd de Ransom "trouble in Paradise". Senzillamente exquisito y el la línea aunque aún mas AOR.

From: javi-valencia Date: November 1, 2003 at 16:26
q tal jordi bormann ya me he pillao este super lp y tengo que decir que esta cojonudo me ha gustado un monton gracias por tus consejos colega,tambien te tengo que decir que el de ramson ya lo tengo desde que salio y es de puta madre. un saludo jordi. javicflm@homail.com

From: robert Date: November 1, 2003 at 19:48
Es acojonante!!!

From: Jordi Bormann Date: November 7, 2003 at 5:50
De nada, Javi. Robert, cual es acojonante? El de Ransom o el de Atlantic?? Porqué estava mirando y en esta linea tb están los dos de Change of Heart que son un pasada!! O no?

From: robert Date: November 7, 2003 at 12:43
el d ATLANTIC sin duda, el d RAMSON esta bien. pero el 1º se sale d las brutales canciones q contiene!! Saludos desde Barna Jordi!!

From: javi-valencia Date: November 7, 2003 at 17:25
bueno colegas.esto va para robert y para jordi bormann, ya que estamos hablando de buenos lps ¿habeio oido el"push" de un super grupo de finales de los 80 llamado VIRGINIA WOLF"?. ese si que es de los mejores cds que e oido en mi vida .os lo recomiendo no lo dejeis pasar es el aor mas perfecto del mundo. larga vida compañeros.

From: ROBERT Date: November 8, 2003 at 13:16
Muchas Gracias por la recomendacion Amigo Javi!!! no tengo ni ese ni el 1º, pero estoy apunto d condeguirlo, ya t dire aver q tal!!! Saludos desde Barna!!

From: Jordi Bormann Date: November 10, 2003 at 12:48

From: Jordi Bormann Date: November 12, 2003 at 6:16
Joder! Pues hola Robert!! Jejeje! Si tio, vaya concierto. Pero estos no van a venir mas de la poca gente que había! Almenos me pude tirar unas fotos con Steve y Bruno. Aún estoy flipando. Sabes eso de ver a tus idolos en un cd y luego tener fotos junto a ellos? Que simples son y que majos. Si todas las estrellas fueran así de asequibles... Ei, tio, nos vemos pronto. Yo no iré a Bonfire pero tu fijo que si, no? Pues a disfrutar y nos vemos. Estate atento al nuevo disco de Token. Estoy ansioso!!

From: Para Javi Date: November 12, 2003 at 6:18
Javi de Valencia, di te va el Hard Rock melodico con un toquecín gótico y comercial, escucha a Token. Super recomendados! Ei, ahora ya me callo que este espacio es para criticar la gran obra de los Atlantic!

From: Robert Date: November 12, 2003 at 19:04
pos si q fue un pasote el concert si. la pena es q no vinieran el Ted y el Andy... Pos no creo q vaya a Bonfire, curiosamente es un grupo q nunca ma gustado demasiado. Venga Jordi, aver si nos vemos pronto.. cuidate y Goza!!

From: aorjocke Date: November 13, 2003 at 8:42
This one have everything that I love about AOR! Every single track is a masterpiece (except Bad Blood) who is a bit boring.Can´t hold on, Power over me and It´s only love are all great AOR.The only negative is the production, it could be much better! If you´re into bands like FM(first),Rox Diamond and Survivor(When seconds count)you have to buy this one!

From: jsm Date: November 27, 2003 at 12:18
Otra joya AOR que pasó muy desapercibida en su momento ... yo los he descubierto hace relativamente poco ... ¡¡vaya disco que me estaba perdiendo!! Lo increible es ver que data de 1.994, para mi es como si fuera de 1.988/89!! En cuanto a las canciones, todas llenas de fuerza y pasión, con melodias maravillosas, escuchad "Power over me", "Its only love", "Nothing to lose", "Cant hold on" ... uff!!, excepto quizá "Bad blood", que es un poco inferior al resto, todos los temas son destacables!! Lo d

From: jsm Date: November 27, 2003 at 12:20
Lo dicho, una joya AOR que merece ser descubierta y reivindicada. jsmnavarro@lycos.com ... maldita limitación de espacio ...

From: Lucy Date: December 13, 2003 at 17:18
I think this band is awesome! "Can't hold on" is my fav!

From: Andy Evans Date: December 14, 2003 at 20:48
Anybody know where I can get the album as I was the Guitarist on it and I don't have a copy so if someone knows how I can get hold of one let me know. Originally the band was named PAF (Patient Applied For). My email is Andy.EvansHill@Virgin.Net if anybody is interested in the story of the band. Glenn and I are going to do something soon but we don't know what. I only wrote 90% of the guitar solo's but I am glad that you all liked the stuff. I was honoured to play with Phil and the others.

From: Ernest Date: January 17, 2004 at 14:40
Great album ,but very bad sound(I'm hi fi fan).It must be remastered.It's a shame so many great albums from the near past sound so bad because someone in the studio didn't do well his job.

I was the bass player on this Album! Its great to see that there are so many AOR fans that have discovered this LP,Phils vocals are amazing. Since Atlantic I have been mixing,producing and engineering with bands such as AC/DC ,Breed77,Sikth,Happylife,VD,GBH plus a million more. Still Rocking strong p.s I have a spare Album for Andy Evans. See YA Paul@alberts.co.uk

Hola a todos. Para mí las mejores power ballads son juast walk away de Dokken Is this love de whitesnake dust in the wind de kansas cualquiera de journey y survivor un saludo a champions 1 y a jordi bormann

From: TIM (2) Date: July 26, 2004 at 4:53
Have seen this on eBay quite a bit, and Schmankerl records have it, so you should be able to track it down. It's very good, and despite the really thin production is still not far behind F.M's "Indiscreet", with "Power Over Me" being the obvious standout track. I seem to remember vocalist Phil Bates performed the theme-song for the UK version of the show 'Gladiators', which probably made him more money than this album ever did... Quality album though. 8.5/10.

From: Ivo Gonçalo Date: August 12, 2004 at 10:46
Sem duvida um grande cd, grandes malhas... (Portugal)

From: aorjocke Date: August 21, 2004 at 17:10
If you're a fan of british AOR(I am!)like, FM, Outside Edge, Peroux, Virginia Wolf, Sugartown or Change Of Heart...all with great lead and harmony vocals and plenty of keys, you should go for this one to. Phil Bates has a very strong voice who fits the songs perfect.The whole album are great, but there are some standout tracks like, "Power Over Me", "It's Only Love" and "Can't Hold On".9,5/10

From: AOR freaky Date: August 22, 2004 at 6:38
Damn right your are, aorjocke ! This is good, man ! And I like your taste ! You and Wotty : two people with a great taste ! Nice to see here some people that know a lot of AOR ! That can't be said of 99% of the others talking about it here ! They only THINK that they know a lot, hé Geoff !

From: aorjocke Date: August 22, 2004 at 7:19
Thanks AOR freaky! You're taste aren't so bad either...

From: Geoff Date: August 22, 2004 at 23:21
This is an amazing melodic hard rock CD, and one of the best releases I've picked up for a long time that I missed first time round. But as AOR Freaky and two of his buddies are obviously the only two who know what they're talking about on this site I guess that means nothing. To me, though, this is powerhouse melodic hard rock without filler. Very glad I found it!!!

From: AOR_Crazy Date: September 6, 2004 at 17:27
Another beautiful speciment of music history, this band reminds me why i like so much this music, thank you guys for this album, pitty you didn't continued!

From: kipjuanjo Date: September 28, 2004 at 6:13
este es un pedazo de cd de aor "awesome" donde los haya, de lo mejorcito que se ha hecho en los 90.Y de los temas, me quedo sin duda con "power over me".

From: kiko Date: October 28, 2004 at 11:28
amazing AOR sample, gotta love it. very well built musics and simple. Gotta have it.

From: The Dolphin Date: October 28, 2004 at 16:33
Beautiful aor cd,reminds me the sound of Strangeways (Walk in the fire).It's a great album from the beginning to the end!

From: rocketron Date: October 29, 2004 at 4:17
Yes- up there with FM/Strangeways in the "Best Of British AOR" league.

From: kiko Date: November 1, 2004 at 11:37
can someone tell me where i can find the lyrics for these tracks ? thanx a lot in advance, very good piece of AOR.

From: Andy Evans Date: December 1, 2004 at 19:19
Hi, I can't believe that people are still writing up about this album as I played Lead Guitar on it ages ago. I don't think Phil ever got anything for the Gladiators stuff as he was not the original singer on the theme tune. He just sang the Single which flopped. Togga Copied the Cd for me. So thanks very much. I will ring you as I have not forgoten. Paul the bass player has been in touch but we have not seen each other yet. The quality on the cd is worse than the original recordings that we did

From: Andy Evans Date: December 1, 2004 at 19:31
Simon Harrison was the man behind this Album. If it was not for him it would not have been made. He co-wrote it with Phil and financed it with his own money. So Simon if you are out there get in touch with me. (Andy.Evanshill@Virgin.net)

Certainly a lost jewel in the long list of Great uk AOR releases. This is a brilliant album. Reminds me of the mega Strangeways alot in places, aswell as Dare, FM and Harem Scarem (s/t) especially on 'Hands Of Fate' & 'Every Beat Of My Heart'. Can't list any bad tracks on this as there aren't any, which you can't say about many releases these days. Along with the aforementioned UK bands, one of the best Brit AOR releases ever.

From: Erik Date: January 24, 2005 at 7:30
Brilliant Aor. Nuff said !

From: Swriter Date: February 13, 2005 at 19:00
Fantastic album, probably 3 tears too late, in the same leauge as The Storm, FM, and BEnglish, too bad the production is not great, all songs are just great and just enough touch of keys, this is how it should be done!!!! Now when is the remaster coming??? which brings me to a question, how do older albums get rereleased? we need about 50 put out including The Ladder, From the Fire, etc.

From: AOR freaky Date: February 14, 2005 at 13:29
Indeed, Swriter : this is KILLER AOR, but rather unknown and certainly far uderrated ! Recommended !

From: swriter Date: March 22, 2005 at 17:47
ok, have an old tape, is this available anywhere??? I remember it and my tape is outta control!!!!! hahahahaha need to find this one!!!!! Great album of rock.aor!!!

From: Muddley Date: March 22, 2005 at 17:57
Swriter, Its available, but OOP. I was lucky to find it at some '''dear'''' guys place. Its a MUST.

From: Swriter Date: March 24, 2005 at 20:24
thanks Muddley, still can't find this one, who's the dear guy?? hahahaha my tape is old!!!!! do I hear a reissue????

From: Geoff Date: March 24, 2005 at 23:15
Got to agree with you there Swriter. There a lot of albums lined up these days for re-issue - many worthy, and man I wish the Zero one had ben done well, but this would have to be in my top 5 albums in desperate need of a re-issue. I only have a CDR and can deal without the tears that will fall if that CDR ever falters and I'm left without this gem. Re-issue please...

From: Muddley Date: March 25, 2005 at 11:29
Geoff, I was looking for this cd for years. One day I met this guy who was selling a lot of great cd's. I went to his place and the first cd, he pulled out was this one..........FANTASTIC. Its really a masterpiece.

From: Joan Date: March 31, 2005 at 11:36
El sonido es auténtico 80 y el grupo tiene clase, pero excepto un par de canciones (sobretodo "It's only love") no me convence.

From: vigilante Date: June 23, 2005 at 17:15
I found this, still sealed cd in a cut-out bin in a local shop for only 2 Euros. I'm lucky I know Great cd in every aspect! The highlights are "It's only love" & "Power over me". This thing should be re-released!

From: leecraddock01 Date: June 29, 2005 at 17:23
Hi there,I see A few of you have already got this album! I have been looking everywhere for a couple of years now for this album and have just stumbled across this site,and what a site it is,very helpful. Im from the UK. CAN ANYBODY EMAIL ME THIS ALBUM,I HAVE BROADBAND SO IT ISNT A PROBLEM IN RECIEVEING THE TRACKS! I WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL IF SOMEONE OUT THERE COULD HELP! THANKS

From: cesar Date: June 30, 2005 at 9:48
Como se puede grabar un disco así y que sea el primero y el ultimo.Para los hispanohablantes: es la ostia

From: swriter Date: July 22, 2005 at 16:06
ok, what can we do to get a re-release on this one!!!!! why is so much crap available and these good ones are nowhere to be found??? hmmm who can we see about a release!!!!

From: Erik Date: July 22, 2005 at 16:12
I am with you swriter. This album deserves a re-release. Stunning album ! Oh yeah and leecraddock if you want anyone to mail this album maybe its wise to leave your e-mail.....

From: swriter Date: July 25, 2005 at 22:11
agreed, man, I have a bad copy of this and this one is just simply amazing!!!!!! why is this not available, anyone in the band we can contact to get a release??? this one must be heard, among the best!!!

From: swriter Date: August 31, 2005 at 17:15
finally got a copy of this one, fantastic and should be on my best of list, very aor but not too light, a great one!!!! I think Atlantic go hand in hand with Boulevard and From the Fire cds

From: ArnoldLancelot Date: September 16, 2005 at 8:58
So, where do I begin? First of all DO NOT mind the year wich can be quite weird for this kind of effort. This MONSTER of a release make Fortune 85' s/t looks like teenagers amateurs!!! Stands up side by side with early FM or even the legendary 2nd and 3rd Strangeways releases gaining inmediately the Classic status. Catchy as you'll never imagine, choruses stick in your mind forever. Forget Harlan Cage or even The Storm, to my humble opinion this is TOP THREE OF ALL 90'S!!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: September 16, 2005 at 12:51
Top 3 is maybe a bit over the top, but this is indeed a bloody GREAT record !

Hi dear Freaky! Yes, you're probaly right that I went a bit too far with that rating, but that's because my love for this cd it's really BIG!!! Anyway I think I wouldn't be far from the truth at all with a top 10 rating instead!!! Cheers!

I feel so lucky because I just got from e-bay after big search a Jap. copy of this AOR Gem which contains a bonus track "Heart's on fire". My personal opinion: this is one of the 5 best AOR of all time. It's a pity that this great band gave no signs since "Power". I have to agree that with FM/Strangeways/Storm are the best AOR British groups but next to them stands the great "Passion Street" with "Million Miles Away". Don't lose this perfection...

Ante todo kiero reivindicar Bandas y super discazos como este, q pasaron inadvertidos y estan Sumidos en el mas Odiado Olvido! Empezar un disco tan Injustamente desconocido como el d los Olvidados Britanicos ATLANTIC es algo q hacen muy pokitas Bandas a lo largo d la historia... es todo lo q yo pido a una cancion d A.O.R. IT'S ONLY LOVE - es realmente la mas pura esencia del AOR mas puro y comercial q pueda existir, fijaros q hace mas d 12 años q tengo este discazo y cada vez q escuxo temas com

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 10:39
como este q abre este maraviyoso Power del 94' (kizas uno d los ultimos Grandes Trabajos del mas puro AOR q se hicieron) Se me ponen los pelos d punta, d las sensaciones q me evoca, no digo mas, solo q lo escuxeis con el Heart. Es perfecto!! POWER OVER ME - Escuxando estas Gemas se me viene al coco la pregunta d como es posible crear una Joya, autentica Gema del AOR, como esta y desaparecer en el Olvido mas absoluto... Este 2º Temazo Brutal es otra pasada escalofriante, otro ramalazo d Genialida

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 10:40
Genialidad... Teclas por un tubo, melodias exkisitas, clase y elegancia a raudales, Guitarras preciosas y cristalinas, esa Voz tan Fantastica del PHIL BATES q me recuerda a Stan Bush (a veces), ¿q mas se puede pedir? Es todo Un lujo!! WHEN THE WAR IS OVER - Sonido Autentico y verdadero d los 80', Absolutamente caracteristico d mis Amados Usa, sin pizcas d Evoluciones (poluciones) ni modernidades d ningun tipo, solamente AOR como debe d ser: Comercial, melodico y con un par d pelotas... Este Bala

Baladon es para correrse d gusto una y otra vez, con esos aires THE STORM, FM, DARE, BOULEVARD, SIGNAL, DRIVE SHE SAID, STRANGEWAYS, o cualkier Super Banda d verdadero AOR d "mis xoxenta" q se os ocurra, Exkisita!! BAD BLOOD - Esta mas durita CAN'T HOLD ON - Medio tiempazo Al mas Puro estilo STAN BUSH & BARRAGE... no me creo q esto este grabado en 1994!! suena totalmente 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990... q Grandes! HANDS OF FATE - Mas Oscura y Rockera, muy al estilo GIANT d exo aki me

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 10:40
exo aki me recuerda al DANN HUFF el voceras y tb al KEN TAMPLIN (Shout) es q hay tantan y tantas similitudes y comparaciones a los "Grandes del Genero" q es imposible q algun tema o algun Riff o Estribiyo no t recuerde a alguno d akeyos miticos Grupos.. EVERY BEAT OF MY HEART - Hasta el mismo titulo q un disco del 92' del Gran Stan Bush! hasta ahi yega la adoracion d este grupo por ese sonido caracteristico del Genial Solista. Este es un grandisimo Medio tiempo. Bonita Melodia d Teclado, perfec

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 10:41
perfectamente mezclado y conectado con el resto d instrumentos. DANGEROUS GAMES - Aki vuelve a ir "parriba" el disco q parecia q iba a bajar d intensidad. Este es uno d mis temas Favoritos del disco. Q gozada, q pasion, q maestria, q jodida locura, increible para unos musicos Ingleses super desconocidos... NOTHING TO LOSE - Aunq no sea una Produccion d lujo, se nota q estamos ante una Obra bien "currada", todo suena en su sitio, ni una nota fuera d sitio, perfectamente calculado... HARD TO BELIE

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 10:42
HARD TO BELIEVE - Terminan a lo grande! Vaya pedazo d Debut, similar a casos como RED DAWN, ALIAS, AVIATOR...etc, q solo grabaron una Obra d Arte y dp el mas miserable silencio! Recomendadisimo para los q kerais escuxar AOR d Verdad! Te enganxaran dd el primer tema! 9 d 10!!

Many bands are put apart by major record companies maybe 'coz they do not have a charming girlie look as this is "AOR" but it's time to change things.this guys deserve a hell of a recognition!.great underrated aor cd.what a shame.by the way,are they still performing?.

From: Carlos A. Date: December 11, 2006 at 11:28
Hey ROBERT caraxo ya lo dijiste todo hombre, solo acotare que esta banda es fantastica, los temas muy directos todos (It's Only Love preludio perfecto para pasar un excelente dia) y con ese estilo AOR arrollador,comercial pero con su buena dosis de feelin´...una maravilla 10/10.

From: manny Date: December 28, 2006 at 18:44
Enorme disco, y en realidad me parece un album maltratado por los críticos cuando hablan de los mejores discos de siempre. Mi opinión es que si hablamos de AOR clasico, de la combinación de teclados y finas guitarras, de composiciones con garra y melodía, de coros trabajados, este es un top-20 seguro. Me encantan "Can't hold on" con un coro a la Foreigner, "Power over me" que suena a Survivor, y no es coña Jimi Jamison llegó a grabar una demo de este tema, "Dangerous Games" con recuerdos a FM...

From: lalorock Date: January 7, 2007 at 17:22
Discazo!,discazo!!,uno de mis favoritos de todos los tiempos,no tiene ningún tema de relleno,todas excelentes con esas melodías de otro mundo y para ser del 94, todavía mejor...,ya que en ese año estaba el grunge dominando la escena rockera,disco unico y paso desapercibido para algunos,temazos It´s only love, Power over me(magistral demostración de melodía),Can´t hold on, Hands of fate,Every beat of my...,Dangerous game,todas con esa magia de composición de este excelente grupo 10/10.

From: Clayton77 Date: January 8, 2007 at 18:32
YEAH, this is an absolute AOR-Classic and an amazing highlight. The outstanding tracks are "Can`t hold on" and "Dangerous game"...HIGH RECOMMENDED!!!!!(10/10)

From: juan carlos Date: February 15, 2007 at 10:38
Ya lo dijeron todo muchachos. Solo acotar que los teclados tienen mucho que ver y es lo que más destacaría aquí junto a los coros, la voz sin ser pues un excelso es de lo mejor tambien y mucha caña!!. En contra pues sería la producción que siendo muy buena pudo ser mejor. La mayoría de los solos pudieron ser mucho mejores. CLASICO. 9.4/10

Best AOR disc ever!!

From: aTomiK Date: August 8, 2007 at 13:18
maybe a little overrated but a good cd anyway. program "Power Over Me", "Nothing to Lose", "It's Only Love", "Hands of Fate", "Dangerous Games" & "Hard to Believe" and you´ll have the essential Atlantic collection in your player.

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: October 6, 2007 at 19:16
Parece mentira que se halla editado en 1994. Se trata de un gran disco, muy solido, con excelentes composiciones como la inicial "Can´t Hold On" y la emotiva "Power Over Me". El estilo de este grupo a mi me suena entre THE STORM, STRANGEWAYS, GIANT y FOREIGNER... o sea que no hay pierde aqui

From: Aor/HardRock Date: October 18, 2007 at 17:27
Banda extraordinaria de rock medolic/AOR, teclados magicos como los que me gustan, simplemente una joya y mis preferidas son "Power Over Me" , "Can't Hold on" 2 temas llenos de magia , lastima que solo sacaran un album..9/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 18, 2007 at 19:57
Que chucha pasa aca??? "espero que algun pupilo no diga algo a esta frase porque aca en Santiago la usamos mucho cierto Aor/HardRock" ya te dije siempre hay Demos, Lost Tapes, Unreleased y Atlantic tampoco rompen esa regla, ahora mas tarde bajo por alla para dejarte capote yaaa!!! yeee!!!

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: December 4, 2007 at 15:36
Dangerous Games!!!! Poder del Melodic Rock/AOR, claro junto al super tema de Power Over Me & Can't Hold On, creo lo mejor de del disco, el resto baladas en su punto como deben de ser temas a media caña, totalmente brillante por su stylo y melodia que tiene en cada tema, un disco muy bueno con ese stylo unico eh incomparable toda una joyita del Melodic Rock/AOR..

Hey Everyone, I am glad to be able to announce that "power" by Atlantic will be re released in August this year in the UK and Europe by Escape Music. It is great to see so many good comments on this record. I was one of the musicians and co-writers on it. A big hello to Paul Hoare and Andy Evans! I'll mail you soon. Peace!

From: erik Date: June 18, 2008 at 12:51
hi muddley ! nice site and the sound clips work very well well done mate ! and yep this is one hell of AOR album. great to see it re released. deservedly so 90/100

From: KurtmanJP Date: August 14, 2008 at 21:54
This band knows how to deliver a killer chorus but the verses are a bit too mellow for me. "Can't Hold On" and "Power Over Me" are great songs!

From: Photochromic Steve Date: November 9, 2008 at 14:24
I can only agree with the majority of reviewers - this is a classic album, with only "Bad Blood" that I don't like. It rates along with Passion Street, Ransom's "Trouble in paradise" and Captive Heart's "Home of the brave" as great one-off albums. It's always a little disappointing when you find something this good, only to find that the band split up years earlier and there's no chance of any more music from them!

I'm collector of music i had over 5000 cd and this is in my top 10 phenomenal staff from this guys all tracks are good the best by me is "power over me", "dangerous games " is a very good rock song with catchy ref you must get this

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 24, 2011 at 20:41
I wrote back in 2006 that this band deserved more and my appreciation's still intact ...incredibly it was a challenge to Atlantic to record an album like this at the beginning of the grunge thing...basically an enjoyable album from head to toes..."Can't Hold On" is such a wonderful piece of AOR ,"Every Beat Of My Heart" nice,"Power Over Me" catchy,"Nothing To Lose" solid smooth one,"It's Only Love" for me the best one of the album,"Bad Blood" remains me of U.K's FM band ,"Hands Of Fate" & "Dangerous Games" both excellent shots!!!...shame these guys only recorded one album but what an album...a must have!!!...ahhhh...and what about the cover(the one i have)...the girl with the tongue out... ...95/100

From: edwithmj Date: October 3, 2017 at 19:24
I just can't seem to get excited about this as other commenters do on here. The rhythms are there and the vocals are decent enough but this album seems to lack a special spark that other similar bands have such as Passion Street and Strangeways. Still, there are some very good AOR tracks here such as Every Beat of My Heart, Nothing to Lose and It's Only Love, but they don't appear to stick in my head for days like other bands' tracks do and I find myself forgetting this album. For me, decent but not outstanding.
