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!
