Format: Audio CD
I have had this on CD for years and years, as I found it on (very expensive!) import when I was in my late teens. This has not really ever been off my play list, as it is such a classic album, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

The story is that there were so many bootleg copies of this going around, as the buzz about Valentine had been sooooo huge, that when it did finally get a proper release, it did not sell as well as hoped. This is a massive shame, as this really is a top of the range album, not a bad track in sight. As with some of the Ratt albums, the use of electronic drums is my only very minor gripe, as the whole thing is just a glorious slice of top notch melodic rock from start to finish. You have ripping guitars, glorious melodies and harmonies, together with the required "big chorus" of this type of music. Rockers, ballads, it's all there, along with some more "tongue in cheek" moments - how did the pig get in there???

They did finally record again, firstly under the name of "Open Skyz" many years later, and also a fairly recent comeback album but, the whole feel of these albums (especially the Open Skyz one) doesn't come close to this one, it's an absolute belter!!!

If you like your so called "radio rock" along the lines of Bon Jovi, Journey, House of Lords, White Sister etc etc, then this HAS to be in your collection.

Nuff said, now go and buy......

If you are into AOR music, you should give a chance to this classic album. Issued in 1989 and produced by Neil Kernon, it is a perfect example of AOR at its best: great songs (listen to RUNNIN' ON LUCK AGAIN, TOO MUCH IS NEVER ENOUGH, TEARS IN THE NIGHT, ONCE IN A LIFETIME) , great production and great musicians. And last but not least the superb performance of the singer Hugo Valenti! Recommended.

Stuart 8 Jun. 2005
By Stuart M. Tysinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Valentine is Awesome!! This cd is very hard to find since it was on the Giant label. I consider this an AOR/Melodic Metal masterpiece. They sound like a heavier version of Journey. They later became Open Skyz but it is not as good as this. The songs I like are: Tears In The Night, Running On Luck Again, No Way & Where Are You Now. If you don't have it get it while you can!

Brilliant! 15 April 2008
By Chase - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the finest groups of musicians ever assembled. The songwriting is fantastic, Hugo's voice is phenominal, and Adam's guitar playing is simply brilliant. This album is worth every penny and more. It's a shame that they hit the scene so close to the end of the hair / melodic rock era. A few years earlier, and they would have been a household name!

Keep on rockin'. Oh, and check out [...] for news! Just found it today!

A very good album! 13 July 2005
By Paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I didn't know what to expect when I bought this album because I had never heard of them before and didn't even know what type of music they were. Fortunately this album provided a unique blend of heavy guitars, heavily integrated keyboards (but not in a crappy 80's synthesiser way) and strong vocals. The lyrics are a bit cliche, but it adds comedy value to songs such as 'too much is never enough' and a little sentiment with strong ballards such as 'never said it was gonna be easy'. The bands sound resembles that of firehouse and white Lion, with plenty of fast guitar solo's, screaming vocals and catchy melodies. Check out the bands later project with open skyz which was the only two albums they ever did unfortunately. Overall, it does blend in a little with the rest of the hair metal bands of that era, but it is one of the best, just a shame they weren't recognised that much.

This CD ROCKS! 21 Feb. 2013
By Andrew Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First of all, I was not even born when this CD came out. When it comes to music, I love late 80's to early 90's AOR, Melodic Rock. I am a huge Journey fan, and I found out about this cd after listening to Hugo. Hugo is the lead singer for valentine, and he does sound and look somewhat like Steve Perry. The music on this cd is slightly heavier than any Journey album, but it is very good. A+++ Highly recommend you check this CD out.

Excellent Melodic Rock Album 13 April 2006
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Valentine is the first album to feature vocalist extraordinaire and utter Steve Perry disciple Hugo. Very much a product of its time, Valentine's style was like a (slightly) harder rocking version of Journey, and was similar to other AOR/melodic rock bands of that time like Giant and Bad English.

Valentine's self-titled debut album featured 11 tracks of melodic rock with plenty of keyboards, guitar hooks, and of course Hugo's soaring emotional vocals. It may be a bit ballad heavy for some tastes, but there are still quite a few rocking moments on the album.

Aside from a song on the soundtrack to the movie Don't Tell Mom the babysitter's Dead, this CD is the only Valentine material available. Hugo & company would resurface later as Open Skyz, a less rocking, but still quite good AOR band that recorded a single album. Hugo would go on to launch a successful (for this type of music) solo career. His debut solo album contains songs that were intended for a second Valentine release, so it is worth checking out for that reason alone.
