Some albums just touch you, you know the feeling, the first track reveals it's first few chords and well your hooked. This album got me ten or more years ago, and even today tracks like Under the Sun and Don't let Go remind me of those things I wish I could forget, but this album and the need to play and play won't let you. If you like your rock smooth, mellow, honest, based on melody and not just the thrash and clash of drums and guitar BUY THIS. Raindance is a highlight and should have made the top ten. King of Spades, Abandon- all the tracks are fantastic. I know I love it for sentimental reasons, but the plan fact is it is just brilliant, please buy it these Oldham boys deserve to still sell

This Album is a soft Melodic Rock Classic with a great bland of keyboards guitar harmonies and catchy Riffs. Not the Ball bust out right Rock/Metal Album that some may expect but a melodic Rock Album.

Still sound sounds good today and delivers what so many bands have tried to do and failed. Check out Belief and Calm Before the Storm as these are also of the same vain.

Like FM (Chris Overland etc) Dare seem to be another one of the those bands that did what matters right (Great Albums and Live performances) but sadly never made it to the best of their potential-Shame

Very under-rated Band.

Dare's debut album has, to my mind, a bit of a split personality. The consistency factor comes from the layers of sumptuous keyboards, strong hooks and Darren's husky passionate vocals that permeate throughout, but the songs seem to fall into 2 camps. On the one hand there are timeless tracks that hint at the majesty to come on the later and quite magnificent 'Calm Before The Storm' album, including the haunting `Under The Sun' and `Abandon'. Then there are songs that are more `of their time', notably the syrupy and dated single `Nothing is Stronger Than Love' or the dreary 'King of Spades' (an oddly titled tribute to the deceased Phil Lynott, who Darren played keyboards for in Thin Lizzy).

As indicated in the other reviews, the whole album is, however, a master class in mid eighties AOR (bordering on the softer side of, say, Bad English, 21 Guns and even as Brian Cox stated on the Jonathan Ross Show, 'Oldham's answer to Bon Jovi') and, if this your bag, then this is a must buy. However, I sense that the two styles on the album are symptomatic of Darren finding his identity, a fact borne out by the confusing, incongruous and relatively one dimensional heavier work-out of 'Blood From Stone' that followed this album. Thankfully Darren got all the planets aligned on the follow up to 'Blood From Stone', namely the classic `Calm Before The Storm', a heady brew of Celtic influences and restrained and emotional power. Unfortunately he then arguably 'lost it' slowly through a succession of albums that became more overwhelmingly Celtic and arguably more religious/spiritual in tone and content (e.g. the aptly titled 'Belief').

That shouldn't detract from anyone purchasing this fine debut though.

One of the best AOR albums you will ever hear. Darren Wharton is one of the best songwriters around. Produced by Mike Shipley and Larry Klein. Can wait for Arc of the dawn to be released samples song great. As for this album if you like Giant, mike spiro , mutt lange music buy this. 10/10

This is one of the all time classics.One of the best albums to come from the 80s.To all those people who have never listened to this album it is A MUST. Sung with true feeling and the unmistakable voice of the one and only DARREN WHARTON ( Thin Lizzy).His tribute to Phill Lynott has to be heard to be beleived in the Hauntingly beautifull King of Spades.This is a MUST HAVE ALBUM for ALL

Probably the best AOR album ever recorded. Under AOR in the Oxford English dictionary it should read: AOR - noun [usu. as adj. ] Out of the Silence by Dare.

All of these other 5-star ratings and reviews say it all.

Melodic keyboard driven elements are what make this album sound very atmospheric, courtesy of the talents of Brian Cox (aka Dr Brian Cox, particle physicist) and Darren Wharton's soft and haunting voice perfectly compliment the album. The talents of Vinny Burns' subtle guitar playing shows enough evidence to demonstrate his rise to fame in the melodic rock circles during the 1990s (TEN, Bob Catley & Asia).

Sounding ahead of it's time this has had the works in terms of production. Produced and engineered by the globally renowned Mike Shipley and mastered by the highly credited Bob Ludwig. This could and should have been as big as Hysteria, Slippery When Wet and Escape.
It is such a crime they didn't make it big, A&M Records should have done more to market this band!

24 years on the album is still highly credited in the melodic rock and AOR circles and has clearly stood the test of time.

Where to start other than to say that this is one of those classic AOR albums that sinks its hooks and melodies straight into you from the first play. The musicianship is superb, the songs well crafted and structured, the melodies and hooks are so memorable, it deserves to be in the all time top 10 of AOR albums along with the likes of Touch, Balance, Signal, Talk of the Town etc
Dare have moved on to a more celtic ethereal sound nowadays, good for some, not for others. Putting that to one side as one should do, this is without doubt an outstanding piece of AOR history and craftsmanship from a band at the absolute peak of their desire and writing skills.
This is a must for your collection!! Don't let the band miss out by copying it, buy an original and show repsect to an album and band that deserve to still be talked about in many years to come!!
C'mon Darren....get the band back out on the road for a "proper" tour. As they say "Book them....and they will come!!"
