Superb third solo album from Mr. Eric Martin! The record varying between pure AOR and pop/rock songs. It starts with the super AOR track “”These Are The Good Times”” from the movie Iron Eagle, this must be one of my all time favourite songs..GREAT! He also does an excellent version of the ballad “”Everytime I Think Of You”” (also done by FM).””I Can’t Relax”” is a very good pop/rock song.I must also mention another of the highlights, the strong uptempo AOR track “”Crazy World Like This””.Eric Martin sings with a great feeling as usual. I really can recommend this one..I’ll give it a 8,5 of 10.

I`ve heard ‘These Are The Good Times’ done by another singer, and ‘Crazy World Like This’ by Robin Beck, so Eric really rocks!!! Nice vocal, all time must-have in any collection…
