Taking a cold look (I-ten) A very nice album 10 Oct. 2000
By An artist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought the cassette tape in 1983, since then I've enjoyed the songs from this album, being Lonely in each other arms my favorite. Now it's on Cd, and that's a really great thing. I've always preferred I-ten's Alone, Heart's version didn't capture the 'spirit' of the song. I don't know who the performers are or what music style they are in, I just like the music, and this is a very nice music. If you are planning to buy a good Cd, buy this.

i-Ten: One of the best "Toto" albums released 21 Sept. 2000
By Anders Bay Jensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Originally released in 1983, this album was recorded in between the 2 Toto albums "IV" and "Isolation", and includes most of the Toto band members, plus almost all the best studioperformers of L.A. at the time (Tom Kelly, Billy Steinberg a.m.o)
The songs are well written and powerfully recorded. The 2 best known songs are the title track "Taking a cold look" and "Alone". The last one was also released some years later by the band Heart, but I personally like this original version better.
My favourite song is the great "I don't wanna loose you", with a catchy chorus, and the typical heartbreaking lyrics that Kelly/Steinberg does so well.
If you like the mid-80's AOR/Westcoast sound, this album is a MUST, and the sooner you buy it, the better - for you!

A forgotten gem 16 Feb. 2006
By Darrin Matteson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1983 songwriters Billy Steinberg (guitar/vocals) and Tom Kelly (guitar/keyboards/vocals) formed the short-lived hard rock/AOR band I-Ten.

Steinberg and Kelly have quite an impressive resume as songwriters, having penned the hits Alone for Heart and Like a Prayer for Madonna among several others they had significant cred in the music industry.

Although MTV was still in its infancy, video had already killed the radio star... If this album had been released in the pre-image concious age of music videos, it very likely would have been a hit.

As it is, 3 of the songs on this album ended up being covered by other bands-- the aforementioned Alone became a hit for Heart, Taking a Cold Look was shortened to Cold Look and covered by Canadian hard rockers, Honeymoon Suite, and I Don't Want to Lose You showed up as a bonus track on REO Speedwagon's The Hits.

The original versions have a certain fire in them that, aside from Heart's Alone, is sorely lacking in the cover versions perpetrated by other artists. Steinberg and Kelly's vocals, while not extraordinary, are certainly of a professional calibre that warrants taking them seriously and giving them further consideration than they ended up receiving.

This album was available on CD for a brief period in the late 20th and early 21st century, but is unfortunately once again out of print commanding upwards of one hundred dollars from some of the more avid AOR music collectors. This album is a musical time capsule of all that was GOOD about music in the early eighties. For the quality of music on this album, it remains somewhat of a mystery to me why I-Ten weren't more well received at the time of this release. If the opportunity to listen to this lost gem ever presents itself to you, by all means close your eyes, turn up the volume and enjoy!

original review AOR Classics magazine - Issue 1 - July 1993 8 Aug. 2013
By stargazer68 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Now we're talking!!! In my opinion this is the definitive AOR album and the one by which all others should be measured. I still play this almost every week and have done so for the past three years. As you probably know, i-TEN were basically a duo of songwriters Steinberg and Kelly. These guys have collected together ten of the highest quality cuts you are ever going to hear on a single release, played by a host of the top players from the West Coast session scene.

The title track and "I Don't Wanna Loose You" are cracking rock songs, featuring strong melody with an upfront mix of Keyboard and Guitar interplay. Conversely, "I've Been Crying" and the legandary "Alone" are killer ballads, highlighting Tom Kelly's emotive voice. Elsewhere, "Lonely In Each Others Arms" is a poignant, sparse song, based on a simple synth hook and haunting vocals, whilst "Quicksand" is a consummate slice of quirky pop-rock. Production, as you would expect from probably the best in the business, is crystal clear throughout, complementing the flawless musicianship.

Even though Steinberg and Kelly have since found their fortune composing for mainstream artists, this release remains unknown outside of the AOR community. Will we ever see the likes again? Timeless!!!
