this is one of those albums that need a couple of listenings to really appreciate the quality of the material but dont fear as this is a pretty good aor release in the vein of phil vincent.recommended to those who like their aor smooth but with enough bite to keep the hard rocker happy!.

From: peter poland Date: April 28, 2004 at 15:37
Great album, that's how late 80's aor should sound like. Track #3 is to die for.A really good album.

From: The Dolphin Date: February 21, 2005 at 16:13
Great melodies,great aor.Back in the 80s with Prisoner,Million miles away,Facing the fire and the beautiful Waiting 4 U.A must have,you can't ignore this!!

Hello....I happened to be google-ing myself (insert joke here )when I ran across this page.I don't know how any of you found this album, but it's nice to hear some of you liked it. Cheers....PC P.S. Somebody translate, would ya?

Dear 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 as you've been said the original it's from 88 and I have to say the production on the 80's one is really good(without been great)you can really appreciate all the keys(wich are quite enough!!)Generally speaking the comparison with Stan Bush really stands-up even with his earlier's works! and with a 5-10$ average price it's truly worth to track this one down and grab it. To my personal judgement: an outstanding bright work.(remember it was the 88'!!!)

As I've said previously in some reviews, when recording good AOR there is no need to castrate yourself before recording and I would take this over a Beau Coup or I-Ten, Toto or the like any day. This is great, pure AOR but it is not as soft as a pillow painted with pink love hearts. It's not heavy, but there is guitar and it's got a great sound and the songs are awesome. Beautiful melodic rock and not a track I dislike. Highly recommended for AOR lovers who still desire the Rock part of AOR.

From: TIM (2) Date: October 25, 2005 at 7:18
Pretty standard AOR-fare this from the ex-Cheap Trick man. All the tracks are good 80's sounding AOR with loads of hi-tech sounding keys, but only 'Facing the Fire' is a standout. The bonus tracks (demos) on the re-issue are pretty poor also. Average stuff IMO. Not sure why Westcoast legend Jason Scheff would've bothered turning up for this... 6/10.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: February 2, 2006 at 22:10
Great AOR album, como que tienes que escucharlo unas cuantas veces como dice la primera opinion este Discazo te envuelve a la primera escucha AOR de calidad y claro el del 88 tiene un sonido de Putisima madre a diferencia de la reedicion del 97 Prisoner, Hey Andrea, Waiting 4 U, Facing the Fire, Million Miles Away, Nothing Good in Goodbye... ya lo dije Discazo otro infaltable en tu coleccion 9/10. saludos a todos los genios del AOR del Ave Fenix desde Ica-Peru.

From: z4roxx Date: October 11, 2007 at 15:11
Super aor!!!Awesome album!A classic and endless masterpiece IMO,10/10!

From: lalo r.o.c.k. Date: May 12, 2009 at 21:57
Awesome AOR,full with melodic hooks,this is a real gem for any good taste,try to listen Pain for the pleasure(orgasmic song!),Hey Andrea and Prisoner(excellent bass) you will understand what i tell you,9/10.more music mr. Phil Cristian please...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 21, 2011 at 20:54
Lovely album...typical AOR stuff mainly done by solo artists...the best songs IMHO are 'Prisoner' & 'Waiting 4 U'...another good shots are 'Just Another Broken Heart',the catchy one 'Hey Andrea','Facing The Fire' & the one 'Living In A Bad World'...89/100

From: happy2849 Date: March 4, 2011 at 18:31
Just played this again to see why I kept it. Some quality rock/AOR with better then average vocals. All tracks worth hearing but #1, 2, 3, and 7 are my favorites.
