"I grew up in Germany and remember when `First Time' was released along with the famous Coke commercial. At first I only bough the single but promptly bought the album. I think this was all back in 1989. I bought every single from the album as well. When `First Time' came out it was a HUGE hit all over Europe. The video was played all the time in several countries. The Coke commercial that used the song, you could not change the channel without finding it again. I believe she also released `Tears is the Rain' and `Save up all your Tears' as music videos. To this day I still watch the `First Time' video. I can not find the other two but remember viewing them. This CD and the singer are incredible! I thought it was going to be the launch of Robin's career. I don't know if the record company did not support her or her management company did not publicize her well but she did not get the credit she deserved. Every track of this CD is GREAT! I am a metal head and am stuck in the 80's era. I would place this CD under pop metal, if that even exists. Still 16 years later the CD I listen to as if it was yesterday. Being the metal head I am I recently researched her and found out she married James Christian, the singer of House of Lords, also one of my favorite bands. I think people thought Robin was no longer in the music industry but she released an album last year called "Wonderland". It is not as heavy as this CD but still brilliant. I would not relate her to Vixen at all as a previous reviewer did. I love Vixen but Robin is by far more talented and has much more range in her voice and presence about her. She is a beautiful person all around and her singing is incredible! She is not one you can really relate to another, she is in her own league and her voice is not like anyone's out there. Star indeed! I hope she receives more exposure with her recent album; it is time for her to take the spotlight again. In my book though for 16 years she has already been there. Don't hesitate on buying this album, it is superb!"
Should Have Been Huge Success!!!

"Robin Beck should have been huge. She had the perfect sound, songs & musicians. She could be compared to Heart, Chrissy Steele, Vixen, Precious Metal, Saraya and Cher (1987-1991). She even has the Save All Your Tears which Cher did on her cd. Also we get Don't Hide Your Heart off the Kiss - Hot In The Shade cd. But believe me there is not a filler on this cd. It is pure AOR/Melodic Rock heaven. Don't miss out on this classic if you can find it."

"Although the CD was marketed as "used", when the CD arrived it was in mint condition and looked perfectly new. The shipping time-line was fair; not super fast but not too long. The shipping cost I was charged seemed a little exorbitant, especially given the amount the postage on the package showed. But, all in all, I was pretty satisfied with this dealer and definitely impressed by the quality of their product."
