The final album of the duet Robin McAuley and Michael Schenker which was released in 1992 was the first MSG album I heard and eventually became my most favorite MSG release throughout his entire career. This is an album that was packed with lots of commercial edged melodic rock, powerful ballads, huge harmonic background chants, and thrilling solos, not to forget that Jeff Pilson and James Kottak were also strengthening this magical line-up.

"Eve" rolled like an assaulting fireball shot out from Schenker's Gibson Flying-V and sparked to the sky with its monstrous chorus. "This Broken Heart" pumped up the tempo to the dancy shaky chorus. I also love the giant melodic lines in their ballads, "When I'm Gone", "We Believe In Love", and "This Night Is Gonna Last Forever". "What Happens To Me" should have been a wonderful Scorpions track. MSG smartly put the acoustical haunting "Nightmare" at the last, cooled off the heat and fades away the album at the maximum pleasure.

This record is clearly a winner to all melodic hearts, and as they have written the lyric "love like this will never come again", that's what really happened to me with MSG. Nothing from his old and new catalogue could have ever top this one, a great buy!
