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.

HASH(0x96e1ce28) étoiles sur 5 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.

HASH(0x9714f1f8) étoiles sur 5 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.

HASH(0x96a028f4) étoiles sur 5 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.

HASH(0x97361378) étoiles sur 5 '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.

HASH(0x97362cd8) étoiles sur 5 Great 80's Concept Album ! 8 février 2010
Par Robert Burgess - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
It's moody, a little dark, like for driving down the highway at night . . . But that's why I loved it in the 1980's ! I just was never able to find the CD ! To me, it is the most well-done, well-produced album by Tommy Shaw, as I have heard most of his others to date . . . Still, yes, it has a certain heavy keyboard-80's sound, but it is more 'serious' than his other efforts in my humble opinion . . .
So, dark, but GREAT guitar, it should have really been the concept for another Styx album, instead of the more light-wieght stuff they all have done . . .
