"There can't be too many bigger White Heart fans out there than I am. I will qualify that to mean that I'm a lover of all of their material in the Rick Florian era. Being very familiar with all of that era's material, I would rate 'Tales' as the best of White Heart's albums. Of my eleven favorite White Heart songs, four come from 'Tales'. Although I believe that their message isn't as strong as it was in 'Powerhouse', the quality of the music, each individual song as well as the whole album, is superior here. If you like power drums, then this is your CD!!! The four brightest stars on this album are:
1) Silhouette. This song has such a unique sound to it, really different from White Hearts usual rock songs and ballads. This is my 3rd favorite of all their songs. Spine tingling....I can't get enough of this song!
2) Who Owns You. White Heart has never rocked better than on this song. Very strong lyrics, guitars, drums. Rock lovers will find this as an instant favorite!
3) Unchain. One of White Heart's most beautiful songs. So wonderfully sung and very radio friendly. This song would appeal to any music lover.
4) His Heart Was Always In It. One of my very first favorites! Very powerful rock and roll with a fantastic message. You'll love the drumming here too! This song has to be included among the very top Christian rock songs ever.
This album has no weak tracks. Other highlights not mentioned above: Vendetta, Raging of the Moon, Say the Word and Light a Candle. All of those would be the top song or two on any other album. If you buy any White Heart CD, or want to start with one, this is what you should get!"

"When this cd came out over a decade ago, White Heart was just another struggling CCM band. They had their hits from previous cds ("Seventy Times Seven", "Fly Eagle Fly", "Bye Bye Babylon" and too many others to mention), but they had yet to have a "perfect" cd. Tales of Wonder fixed that forever. This was ground-breaking and record-setting. For the first time ever, every song on a cd was released as a single--and all charted in the top 10! This saw the first incarnation of the band with Jon Knox as the drummer (formerly of Adam Again) and these guys took it to a whole new level! "Raging of the Moon" started it off with a rocking bang and it never let up. "Gabriella" will haunt you with it's deep lyrics (and it must have worked, because Mark Gershmel met his "Gabriella" while touring for this cd with Rachel Rachel in their keyboardist Brynn Beltraine). One thing that always grabbed me about White Heart was the fact that they traded lead singing duties between Rick Florian and Mark. Both men had strong vocals, but both had weaknesses. Mark could sing a slower, more emotional song while Rick could rock the house with the harder ones. These guys made magic together, and it's a shame to see them gone. Thankfully, they were able to pull off this beauty before it was all over. They made 3 other cds after this one, but nothing could match the brilliance of this one. Highly recommended."
