Tommy SHAW (STYX, DAMN YANKEES) sort cet album solo en 1987. L'ensemble est co-produit et co-composé avec Terry THOMAS, connu notamment pour son travail sur le 1er GIANT.
Cet album trés riche alterne le hard rock classique avec gros riffs et refrains entêtants comme "No such thing", "Are you ready for me" ou "The outsider" et les titres aériens et subtilement structurés comme les splendides "Dangerous game", "The weight of the world" et "Ambition". Notons aussi un titre quasi funky assez génial "Love you too much" et une belle ballade "Somewhere in the night". Un bémol cependant : la reprise incongrue d'une mièvrerie de SURVIVOR (!) "Even since the world begun", la seule faute de goût de l'album.
Le jeu de guitare de SHAW est très fluide, jamais démonstratif, axé sur le feeling et de petites interventions opportunes. Mais, c'est vocalement que TS impressionne. Sa voix, relativement aigüe, cristalline et douce est superbe.
Magnifique album à (re)découvrir.

Thanks, Terry and Tommy 2 septembre 2007
Par R. Culpepper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
For those who are fans Tommy Shaw of Styx and Damn Yankees, you know what a great songwriter Tommy is when he has a creative counterpart to bounce his musical ideas off of-- Such as the guys in Styx and Damn Yankees. Before Damn Yankees, Tommy met a very talented producer by the name of Terry Thomas. Tommy was in desperate need of a fresh start in his solo career after his second album failed. He got a new manager and his manager teamed him up with Terry. The result was "Ambition" a very well-written and produced "AOR" rock album in 1987. There are very few dull moments on this disc. "Somewhere In the Night" is worth the price of the whole CD alone. Very powerful stuff. Terry took Tommy in a very different songwriting direction and the result was a dark, atmospheric and emotional record that somehow manages to retain the "soul" of Tommy Shaw's style. All the sudden, he's singing in odd minor keys and in higher registers at Terry's urging. Arguably, it marks the beginning of a creative journey that will take him to Damn Yankees, to Shaw-Blades, back to Styx and back to Shaw-Blades again, with several songwriting credits on the side for other artists along the way. Wow. Most people don't realize the impact that this supposed "failure" had on his career. Commercially the album was a failure (thanks for nothing Atlantic Records) despite it's album rock-friendly production values and solid musical performances. But it is a great record that deservedly has been reissued. On a side note, this was a big break for Terry Thomas as well, who went on to produce some fine album-rock records for Bad Company and Giant in the late 80's.

FINALLY!!!! 22 septembre 2007
Par Eric Morris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
If you only own one Tommy Shaw CD, this should be it. The title track, "Somewhere in the Night," and "No Such Thing" are the standout songs here, though they are all good. After leaving Styx in 1983 and before joining Damn Yankees in 1990, this 1987 solo effort (his 4th in as many years) finds Shaw in top songwriting form. CDs weren't really mainstream yet in 1987 and this title was never reissued (until now, 20 years later) so original issue CD copies of this are VERY rare. I have one, though I won't tell you how much I paid for it. Buy "Ambition" now! It's a piece of Rock history and Tommy Shaw's best solo album.

Great Album 22 octobre 2007
Par yankee in GA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I've always been a Tommy Shaw/Styx fan, and I actually bought the original issue of this CD from a bargain bin for $1.99. I also saw the supporting tour as an opening act for Rush. This album rocks from start to finish. Great vocals, guitar, and songwriting. Highlights are Somewhere in the Night, Dangerous Game, and The Outsider. If you like Tommy Shaw, buy this album. It was out of print for years and is well worth the price.

'80s pop rock obscure gem 8 septembre 2008
Par Brad - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is my favorite of all the Tommy Shaw solo albums. I remember looking for this in 1988, the year after it came out, and it was already in the bargain bin. I scooped it up then and was glad I did, as it disappeared for good soon after that. I'm glad to see it's available now for others to buy and enjoy.

This is an awesome, vintage 1980s melodic pop/rock album. To me, every single track shines. For sure "No Such Thing" is a great rocker to open the album, as is the title track at track 4. "Dangerous Game" has a soaring, anthemic melodic quality to it that can't be beat. "Ever Since The World Began" is a remake of the Survivor song that appears on the "Eye Of the Tiger" album, and it is as hearfelt and brilliant a performance as the original. "Somewhere in the Night" is another soaring melodic anthem in the second half of the album, and "Lay Them Down" as the closing track is also beautifully thick with melodies.

If you are a fan of '80s melodic pop/rock, you owe it to yourself to pick up this underrated gem of an album. Back when this came out, I was buying a lot of popular albums with singles that got a lot of airplay, as that was the music that defined my youth. That being said, I'm glad I didn't let this one slip by me despite its lack of high charting singles. Note that this was the last Tommy solo album before the brilliant supergroup Damn Yankees was formed. It's certainly not as heavy throughout as the DY material is, but melodically it was surely a sign of things to come.

One of the best albums of the 1980's 7 janvier 2012
Par KB Alan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Tommy Shaw's third solo album, 1987's "Ambition", not only rose far above any of his other efforts, it was genuinely one of the best rock albums of the 1980's. It is loaded with excellent lead & rhythm guitar, subtle keyboards and great melodic songs delivered by an artist who was at his peak, vocally. I had liked Tommy's 1984 solo debut album "Girls With Guns" very well. 1985's "What If" not nearly so much although it did have 3 or 4 songs that made it worth owning. But "Ambition" caught me by surprise. My favorite songs are "Dangerous Game" "Somewhere In The Night" (both of which had very strong radio potential) "Weight Of The World" & "Outsider". The ballad, Survivor's "Ever Since The World Began" was also very good although it seemed to fade too early and would have sounded better with an extended guitar solo and slower fade. Atlantic Records made no attempt to promote the album and it's a huge shame. Even today, the "Ambition" sounds very fresh and not dated like most other output of the mid-late 80's. This was Tommy at his best!
