Great pop AOR from a great vocalist. This is the last of his solo efforts that i would call AOR and this is a fine effort to bow out of the genre. 7.5/10

Pre-Bad English, this is a fine release from a great singer. If you like polished AOR then this is a treat. 8/10

From: hair metal again Date: March 8, 2011 at 1:29
fantastic release by the mighty JOHN WAITE ,probably his best solo.very polished production by frank fillipetti,valuable help by dianne warren and desmonf child and there you go:a release full of mega hits like "don t loose any sleep","these times are hard for lovers","act of love","wild one".87 was a great year

From: CLOUD FORCE Date: April 27, 2014 at 17:33
AOR masterpiece.a bit of pop influence,but a top album for lovers of mid 80s classy sound.the opener,written by desmond child is a smash opener.essential

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 5, 2017 at 11:57
Nice album with catchy AOR tunes in it ..."Act of Love", "Don't Lose any Sleep" & "She's the One" are my faves.82/100
