The Best of 2014!
January 26, 2015 -
2014, the year that was. The Best of lists from Mike, Pete, Jez, Terry, and myself have been posted. A strong year, but actually there was less consensus amongst the 5 of us then there has ever been. That tells me there were a LOT of good releases across many genres. Feel free to add your own list at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

|A bit overrated IMO. This effort really doesn't do much for me...

|Arena rock in the Journey/Night Ranger mold. Singer is kind of weak, IMO.

|maybe the people the aor is not good ,but i think is very nice

|This is an excellent release and is a must for anyone who is "into" collecting Eric Johnson related material. Years ago, a young Jay Aaron played bass and sang in Mariani, a three piece blues rock trio which included a 16 year old guitar player named Eric Johnson.

|The original line-up included Billy White, who left to sub for Lynch on Dokken's solo effort. Chris Skiles is a great drummer and the whole band was a bunch of genuinely nice dudes. They opened for ZZTop on the tour that The Black Crows bailed on due to the beer sponsorship issue, and their "big shot" got wasted by inferior sound board work at the Erwin Center that night. It wrecked their image as a good band. The Hamburger Hill Rehearsal complex in Manchaca is gone now, a sad thing all around.

|Great Sound -- RONDA -- (Portugal)

|I'd agree with the nice sound comment, but that's about all I can favourably say about it. It is in no way bad at all, just very average and not much for a grand melodic rock effort. I just don't dig the songs. Okay CD.

|very average release.absolutely no catchy melodies. this for sure isn┤t a must have.
||Date: October 2, 2004 at 20:54|
|Some nice lush arrangements and decent vocals, but nothing to get excited about. "All Day Long" is just stunning. The lush atmospheres are intricate and last in your mind long after the song is over. Aside from this song, the rest is a nice try at some radio friendly AOR but doesn't quite make it. Not bad but not great either.

|Well, no good reviews here.I disagree beacause IMO this is great record. For me sound of this is like AOR mixed with 70's melodies, for that reason check out the the absolute killer(7minutes long!!) Burning High And Bright...what a song!!! only for this one this is a must...but this isn't only jewel here...Ronda another with great athmosphere, I Believe In stunning rocker with great melodie, superb instrumental track(10)...well i see no fillers here...for me very good record

|GREAT ALBUN DE AOR

|Good Cd. Weak vocals at times. "Burning High and Bright" is a very nice ballad. "all Day Long " is very good also. A lighter side into the Night Ranger genre, but not Night Ranger clones. AOR.
||Date: October 14, 2007 at 15:59|
|Many years ago it sounded great to me,now I find it a decent one,don't know why,maybe because they alternate some very melodick pieces to some awful fillers,but totally is a good one!7,5/10!

|I agree with the comments above, the sound quality of this cd is superb, but the song-writing is very average, and the guy has a very mediocre voice too. He knows how to play the guitar though... Don't Let Go is my personal favorit on this disc !

|Pretty good album recorded at the beginning of the 90's and probably risking a lot coz the AOR was not that relevant at that new decade..anyway "Don't Let Go" is superb,a good track,"Ronda" really is a simple track but good,"Burning High And Dry" is a smooth ballad.About the comments above,yes,it has some Nightranger spark and the voice is just normal but not that extremely bad...i know when it comes to AOR we usually expect great vocals and that's the main idea but into the mediocre kind of,there are worst vocalist than Jay...84/100

|Also recommendable are "Call Me Tonight" and the instrumental one "Carry The Wheel"(this one sounds ala Trevor Rabin kinda stuff)....
||Date: September 4, 2010 at 3:40|
|Awful album, Just bad songs & nothing catchy at all. 2/10
||Date: December 27, 2010 at 23:45|
|Worth the dollar i paid for it haha tracks 2 and 3 are worth it, that's about all.
