There is one person I owe so much to that I've yet to mention, but to do the job properly would take the whole inner sleeve. The patience, love and constant support never ends, and I for one need that more than anything.

Review written by MAMA, June 4th, 2006

Everyone in the entire state of Hawaii raves about Robbie Patton's music! So sexy too! We LOVE him and his beautiful melodies!

Weaker than follow up but strong enough
Review written by John Fitzgerald, August 29th, 2004

There are many Macsters present here (Bob Weston, Bob Welch, Lindsey & Christine (who co-produced the album)) but it doesn't say which songs each member is on. The irresistible hit single which opens the album "Don't give it up" is the obvious favorite, with a great hook and instrumentation this is the most instantly likable song on the record and the most enduring favorite. Not as many songs stand out on this release as on "Orders from headquarters" but there's some good collaborations, such is the case on the title track which closes the album, a nice ballad Robbie co wrote with ex- babys/Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain. A very commercial disc which is worth purchasing for "Don't give it up" on it's own if nothing else.

Patton writes the kind of mainstream pop songs that are in radio's groove evidenced by the first single "Don't Give It Up," which is climbing the charts. Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie co-produced the LP and contributes keyboards while Lindsey Buckingham contributes some guitar work. Patton's voice, while not that unusual or sincere, still manages to ignite enough muster to make the material sound convincing. Best cuts: "Don't Give It Up," "She," "Distant Shores," "Heartache." (Billboard Magazine, 8/1/81)
