|I write here my comment about Amy Wolter solo cd(“hi me in the heart”,1994).What a pity,a great voice for an average release.Decent melodick hard rock/blues far from Fighter and also from a good christian other release.Not a single remarkable tune even if the cd don t contains a single filler,just average good musci.It’a also a shame that in the site don t figure an immense talent like Michael W.Smith who made several great works.Anyone knows the reason????

|Muy bonito Melodic Rock/AOR. Sean Murphy y la Fémina Amy Wolter se alternan los temas. Me quedo con esa muy bonita "Alone With You" vaya temita AOR me encanta! y "Team Out" tambien muy buena, bonitos solos(me encantan esos solos) y asi en casi todos los temas. Recomendado. 8.5/10

|Good CD 77/100 CHRISTIAN HARD ROCK nothing really new but well crafted songs with some nice both male & female vocals ! Like SILOAM or THE BRAVE but not as good !

|This band battled valiantly to create a sophomore CD that was as good as their debut ("The Waiting"), but in the end just couldn't quite accomplish that difficult goal. That said, don't hang 'em on the cross yet, because despite suffering a slight--and I do mean slight--downgrade in quality, this is still a pretty good Christian melodic hard rock release. The heartwarming ballad "Faithfully" alone makes this a keeper, thanks to powerful lyrics and the soul-stirring vocals of Sean Murphy, one of the most underrated singers in the Christian rock genre (Amy Wolter shares lead vocal duties, so loathers of female-fronted bands beware). Fans of Ransom, Siloam, or Seriah should be able to drum up some support for this CD.

|I agree with Andrew (Jessica96fish) above in that I lean toward this second major label release from the band. In retrospect, Fighter was a Christian power-pop band cut from the same cloth as Petra and White Heart. The Iowa-based group was led by Amy Wolter and the distinctive element in their sound was the trade-off vocals between Amy (likened by critics to Pat Benatar or Patty Smyth of Scandal) and male singer Sean Murphy. This one gets a two thumbs up from me.

|More solid than their debut one and leaving,or may i say,addopting to their Melodic Rock/AOR sound a more edgy Hard Rock style of music...the female-male singing duet comprised of Wolter & Murphy still deliver passion to their christian beliefs and makes the album a pleasant one to listen to(like they did on their first release)anyway about the songs..."Time Out" rockin' & catchy opener,"Alone With You" wonderful & nice AOR,"Bang The Drum" is another good rocking one and the chorus strongly reminded me of Def Leppard ,"When Will We Learn" is another rockin' song but with AOR sparks,"Faithfully" a friendly AOR track,"So Much To Learn" has a nice catchy chorus,"Your Hand" IMHO the best(or at least 4 me) & "Where Can Love Be Found" a wonderful acoustic track that reminded me of Bon Jovi somehow...the same formula as their debut release but with a more rocking feel...excellent!.97/100
