|Great 80's metal! Love the music, love the message!

|A decent rock album, but not very heavy. This recording has Lanny Cordola written all over it. Ransom's first record was straight up glam metal. The guitars are given a goofy sound on some of these songs and there are other Cordola influences here (like sitars on many songs - a Cordola trademark). All that being said, there are some decent songs here. Tracks 3, 5, and 8 are the best IMO.

|I like the music/production on their debut better, but 'Soul Asylum' shows a blusier/gutsier sound for Ransom, and it still works. A fan of blues, Lisa turned it up a notch and really sang her heart out on this one! I can enjoy all the songs, but tracks 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 10 are the ones I tend to like the best. Not flawless, but it sounds like they had fun making this album, and my hats off to them for taking a risk and trying something different. 8.5/10

|Can't add much to Ty's review above. A good release. Tony Ortiz is one of the unsung, underrated guitar heros of he LA circuit.

|This album is great! I have it on cass and hope to find it on cd. One little known fact about the album is that Oz Fox plays on the last track!

|Very good album with many good songs, but personally, the two great songs are Windows of My Heart and Prayer Asylum.

|Loved this band when they were called First Aid, and had a different Drummer. I was 15 and thought they were cool to hang out with and even had them over for food after a show close to my house. My Mom bought a 6 ft sandwich for them. It's a good memory.

|Not a very heavy album? This album rocks just as hard or even a little more than their debut. Soul Asylum has a more edgier sound, and the lyrics have slightly matured. It's lost a little of the glam sound, but it's still hair metal. I love this album!
