4 stars Commercially, a relative Worldwide success. This album garnered several popular hit singles, most notably Islands and Magic Touch. Magic Touch was very successful in the USA reaching the top ten on the Billboard Album rock charts. Similarly, Islands was the most popular single in the UK. Downunder, Magic Touch received heavy rotation on FM rock stations. In Germany, the single also received airplay on local radio stations.

If commercial success was in mind when Mike wrote the tracks for this CD then he acheived this objective easily. Many fans will disagree but Islands was almost as successful, with regard to radio airplay and sales, as Crisis back in 83'.
