"I first stumbled across this in a cut out bin, having never heard a song from it, having not even known it had been released. Lunatic Fringe had been a local radio favorite and I had waited for Neruda to hit the charts and take off, but to my great disappointment it had never happened. When I got his album home and listened to The Boy Inside The Man, I just knew it was destined for greatness, and played the song for anyone who would listen. Par for the course, it never got played on Cincinnati radio, which marks it as an instant classic elsewhere. If nothing else, following the career of Red Rider let me in early on the secret that Tom Cochrane was a genius. This album is the proof. The Boy Inside The Man is a classic on par with Lunatic Fringe and the rest of the album doesn't disappoint. Strong work. Stronger career."
Absolutely a superb album

"By luck I stumbled on Tom Cochrane and his song "Life is a Highway", and from that moment, I was hooked for life. He became my favorite artist, and this record, the first he released is exceptional and uniqe. It isnt only his first, its one of his best.
The songs have this special soul to them, they are just beautiful to listen too. Trademark for many of the songs are the building verses and the catchy, melodic chorus. You can also trace roots back to Stones/Clapton/Springsteen and older rock and roll on some of the songs, but he never looses his modern, catchy rock style with sweet songs.
On to this one!
There isnt a SINGLE bad song on the album!!
The best songs on the album, is definetly "Boy inside the Man", "Love under Fire", "The Untouchable One", "Lasting Song", "Ocean Blues(Emotional Blue)" and the haunting and beautiful "One More Time(Some Old Habits)".
Tom Cochrane got this great voice, not overly clean and strange like artists today, but natural and comfortable to listen to. One hot tip, if you want the full effect out of his songs, like "Love under Fire", take it for a spin in your car a late night driving with a crisp and clear sound. You will be stunned.
Its very hard to find the right words to describe this music, you can guess and read reviews, but none do this album right. It simply fantastic, Superb, wonderful, great and all the words you can say.The only real bad thing about Tom Cochrane & Red Rider is that it can be damn hard to get his music, especially in Europe.Support Tom and show the world who`s the man!"
