"Cleveland Rocks! This is the best CD from the Michael Stanley Band. I own all of their CD's but this is the one I play the most. Listening to this CD makes me home sick for Cleveland!"
Good Music!!!

"Although non-inclusive, this is a very good album. If you were in NE Ohio in the 70's or 80's, you'll remember EVERY one of these songs. If not, you'll enjoy this anyway. Without question, Michael Stanley was the top local ( and, midwestern regional) band during that period. That record companies turned such a blind eye, is crazy. Rolling Stone magazine, in their History of Rock, called them them, in essence, the 'best american band that never became huge stars'. Listen, and you may well wonder, too."
Flawless overview of one of the best "unknown" bands ever.

"New Jersey has Springsteen, Detroit has Bob Seger, and Cleveland has Michael Stanley. Similar vein of heartland rock, the biggest difference being that those guys made it big, MSB didn't (not nationally, at least, but they were huge in Northeast Ohio). Don't let that deter you from buying this compilation, which is not only a HECK of an overview of an incredible band, but downright flawless rocking, to boot.

Many "Best Of" comps get by by including a few choice songs, with the rest being filler. Not so with this one. Every track is perfect. There's no bad song here. But why would there be? MSB had a track record of putting out great album after great album. It gets to the point where the only complaints you can make are why certain songs were excluded (and here's mine: No "Let's Hear It" from 1981's "North Coast"? And yes, I know it's on their second "Best Of", but that one's difficult to find nowadays).

For everyone outside of Northeast Ohio, the two songs you MIGHT recognize are 1980's "He Can't Love You" (which became one of the very first MTV videos, BTW) and 1983's "My Town" (from the albums "Heartland" and "You Can't Fight Fashion", respectively). Those cracked the Top 40, and received some national airplay, but this disc is full of songs that should have been hits. "Strike Up the Band", "Lover" (Thank God for the man who put the white lines on the highway), "In the Heartland", "Somewhere in the Night", and the scorching "In Between the Lines", all phenomenal.

Buy this one if you want good, REAL rock, not the stuff passing as rock and roll today. Then go and buy the rest of MSBs albums. You won't be disappointed."
