"It's not surprising that John Sykes can write a good rock ballad, but this is a fascinating collection in that he does so many good ones on just one album. Fortunately, Sykes resists the temptation to put every song into 80's power ballad-land by varying the production and easing up on the layers for many of the songs. There are a lot of good melodies here and some of Sykes' best lyrics. I would miss his guitar if he cut every album this way, but this one is a very entertaining diversion from the norm and is essential for fans of John Sykes.
John Sykes love song collection!

"Here we go again! Another brilliant release from John Sykes. As you'll hear, there's no need for a whammy bar on a guitar once Sykes is involved - his vibrato is huge as always. No heavy riffing on this CD but definitely another collection of great songs to go with all his heavy releases."
Loveland = Love Songs
