Not bad, but not his best either

"In the mid-80s, Corey Hart was a handsome young pop-rocker with a distinctive, emotional and highly melodic style belying his punkish, spiky-haired appearance. He had big hits with songs like "Sunglasses At Night," "Never Surrender," and "Eurasian Eyes." When he made this album in 1992, his distinctive voice was still well-intact, but the overall robustness of his signature sound was starting to wear thin. A few selections, such as "92 Days Of Rain," "Always," and "Poster" stay true to the roots of the above mentioned hits from the 80s, but as a whole, this album is more tired and less fresh-sounding than some of his earlier efforts."
Corey's Rhythm and Blues

"Corey Hart is known by mid 80s hits such as NEVER SURRENDER and CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU. His sixth album in 1992 may be hard to come by mainly because it was not well promoted back then. It is purely a rhythm and blues album a bit different from 80s pop style and I feel as if I were listening to Paul Young titles.
Third track BABY WHEN I CALL YOUR NAME is an outstanding slow ballad track reminding me a bit of Paul Young's EVERY TIME I GO AWAY. 92 DAYS OF RAIN, however, is the reason why Cory's fans should still stick to this one. It is indeed typical 80s Cory style and my top favorite from this album. WITHOUT YOUR LOVE is a moody yet touching ballad also my favorite. SONNET FROM THE PORTUGUESE is something like STING's ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK.
Verdict: Cory tries blues. A nice album for a change.
Rating: 75 out of 100
Recommended for: Cory Hart, and some of Paul Young and Hall and Oates fans."
One of my top ten CD's of all time.

"It may be off the radar of a lot of fans, but this CD showcases Corey Hart's songwriting talents and polished vocals. It was definitly under promoted and it's a shame, because it was easily his best album to that date, with Young Man Running coming in a close second. Don't buy this CD if you want to rock out, but if you want to hear an emotionally charged vocalist backed up by some of the most well written lyrics, with haunting melodies (Without Your Love, Sonnets From the Portugese), and upbeat numbers like 92 Days of Rain, and Back in the Hand, this is the CD for you. I Want (Cool Cool Love) is also a standout that will stick in your head for hours. Also check out his self titled CD released in 1996, and Jade 1998."
