"This is my favorite Al Jarreau cd of all time. Even though it's over ten years old, his music is priceless, and will be good forever. I've owned this cd since 1994, and still listen to it today! If you don't own this yet, you should get this now. This is why.1. All or Nothing - 10/10 This sound has a great beat, and is just fun to listen to. A great song to start the cd. This has to be one of my favorite songs on this cd. 3:582. So Good - 9/10 A beautiful ballad from the great Al Jarreau! Not my favortie piece on this collection, but it's still good enough for me to give it a 9/10. It repeats a lot at the end. And doesn't show off this vocals as much as other tracks do. 4:393. All of My Love - 10/10 All of My Love is another personal favorite. Probably my third favorite track on the album. Although, this song is jazz, this ones beat is a little different. I never grow tired of this track. His voice also sounds really good on this one! 4:434. Pleasure Over Pain - 9/10 The first really soft and slower ballad on the track. This is a beautiful song about how love is the most important thing in the world. The great thing about this track, is that it doesn't repeat a lot, even though it's over 5 minutes long. Although this is not written by Jarreau it has some very good lryic's that fit him well. 5:205. Yo Jeans - 8/10 This song is very short, and doesn't show off this vocal range. This is the only song on the album that I don't really care for. The lryics (written by Jarreau) are good though. 1:466. Way to Your Heart - 10/10 Probably my favorite song on the album, it's got an amazing beat. A great song to follow "Yo Jeans". The lryics wirtten partly by Jarreau are perfect, and the melody shows his voice of perfectly. The chorus is also very catchy and fun. 4:357. One Way - 10/10 Another softer track, however this fit's Jarreau's vocals better. And allows him to have fun with it. Beautiful back up vocals, too. 4:418. 10K Hi - 10/10 My second faovrite song on the album. You can tell he had fun singing this. It includes, some interesting sounds done by Jarreau, that have become part of what makes him so great. This is without a doubt, the most fun song on the cd. Written by Jarreau.3:459. I Must Have Been A Fool - 10/10 Another favorite! A great follow up to "10K Hi". This song also has another fun beat. And once again his vocal talent really shines in this one. 4:1010. More Love - 9/10 This song may not be my favorite but it is a classic. Jarreau, manages to make each song beautiful, even this one. It is another love ballad.3:3611. Killer Love - 9.5/10 This is a good track, I wasn't sure if I was gonna give it a 9 or a perfect 10, but I decided to go with a 9.5, cause it will have you singing along. The song really picks up as the Chorus starts. 4:1212. Heart's Horizon - 9/10 This is the song the album is named after, and is partly written by Jarreau. It isn't as good as some of the other tracks, but it's the perfect track to end the cd with. It sounds very beautiful.4:37This is a great cd, by a great artist. He is a classic, and this is some of his best work. I suggest you all get this. It's a great cd to play while driving in your car. Trust me, you'll love it!"
My personal best al Jarreau cd.

"This one isn't quite as catchy and radio oriented as "Jarreau" but it is a compelling mix of storytelling ballads and fast moving pop.The title track is infused with meaning -- a father singing a lullaby to his children about how to overcome the obstacles in life. Deeply moving and thoughtful. My favourite song on the album. Similar to "Not Like This" on the 1983 "Jarreau" album --introspective but not sappy."10K High" is a friendly, upbeat song with some interesting synth work involving the vocals."Yo Jeans" with McFerrin is a change of pace, but not one of my favourites. "More Love", "One Way" and "Killer Love" are melodic and pleasant but not particularly memorable.Bought this one on LP years back and still like it. Not quite as consistent from top to bottom as "Jarreau" but nonetheless a very good pickup if you can find it. Not easy to find."

"This is an excellent and underrated album. "Pleasure Over Pain" is an excellent track, I love this song. Al Jarreau is such a great artist."
