|i think this is somehow bellow standards ofclassic boc.it has its moments like "dr.music" and "the vigil" but whole record is somehow empty.maybe because it was period of some transformations of their sounds before 80's.|

|"Dr.Music" might have worked better coming from Aerosmith than BOC. Likewise, "You're Not the One (I Was Looking For)" would've made a great Cars song. More of a pop record this time around for the guys with "In Thee" leading the way as one of the most intelligent, non-sappy love songs ever written. "The Vigil" is first-rate, as Masque pointed out. "Great Sun Jester" is a neat little time capsule from the space-infatuated 70s. "I Am The Storm" is the heaviest thing on this CD & it stands alone.|

|I AM THE STORM is classic heavy rock at its best! Thundering drums and lightning guitars coupled with splendid lyrics makes this a must have for any true heavy metal fan.|

|This is BOC's most diverse album, but I AM THE STROM is the standout heavy track!|

|This album is a mixed bag. Some it sounds like 80's new wave but driven by Bucks masterful guitar. I think "the Vigil" may be one of their best metal songs ever. "I am the Storm" is also a powerful tune. Vocals are also a strong point on this album.|

|this is one of the best hard rock cds i´ve ever heard...and even the best i´ve heard from böc! there´s not one weak song on the record...above all "you´re not the one..." and "lonely teardrops" became immortal rock classics for me...this is more than just music...this is a masterpiece!|

|My favourite BOC album!! Hard rock (Iam the storm) Pop Rock (Mirrors, lonely teardrops) Great guitar- (the vigil) Stadium rockers-(Dr Music) Solid production which holds up well today against many contempories. This is a great, great album|

|A combination of their undoubted energetic approach crossed with some melodic commericalism, missing on their previous material. Perhaps this freshness was best represented on their single 'In Thee' a very harmonious piece of work, and great for radio. 'The Great Sun Jester' also has a full melodic sound similar to REO Speedwagon.|

|I didn't care for this one, but bought it anyway. Support the blokes, you know.|
|From: Adam Blackheart||Date: February 26, 2006 at 12:36|
|I think that "Mirrors" is good one. Not as heavy as Secret Treaties, not as ambitious as "Agents Of Fortune", but who cares? I love "The Great Sun Jester", I LOVE "In Thee"... Dr Rock and title track are two killer tracks... Not masterpiece, but another enjoyable BOC album.|
|From: Remastered Reason||Date: April 23, 2009 at 12:54|
|The production here leaves this album with so much more to be desired. Coupled with the distractions of outside influences, this thing unfortunately tanked. "Dr. Music", the obvious standout rocker, sounds fairly invigorating as does the acoustic ballad "In Thee" but all the other tunes with massive potential fall flat. If there is one record in the bands discography they need to re-record, it's "Mirrors".|

|Decent album for me but with a kinda low production that influenced badly in the spirit of it to be honest....my fave tracks are # 2(AORish feel),3(nice),5,6,7 & 9...80/100|
