This is a great sounding remaster, I have been listening to this cd for a few weeks now a great remaster from Rock Candy. Very good and faster. Qui Shaw, supportato dalla perfetta produzione e songwriting di Terry Thomas produttore anche dei Bad Company , realizza il suo album solista migliore, il terzo, con brani diretti, tirati a lucido quali "Dangerous game" dal chorus stellare, "Outsider" frenetica e melodica, oltre alla bella cover di "Ever since the world began", power ballad dei Survivor e all'evocativa "The Weight of the World" fino al singolo uptempo di "No Such thing".

Verified Purchase. After a poor reception and poor sales of his 2nd album, Tommy Shaw turned to producer Terry Thomas Bad Company, Foreigner producer for direction with his next album, Ambition. Thomas, who co-wrote, mixed, and played on this album, did not disappoint. The album is moody and harder than Shaw's previous two pop albums. Other standout tunes include Ambition and Somewhere in the Night, both of which would have fit well on a Styx album and better than anything Shaw wrote for Kilroy Was Here.
I did miss the big Styx harmonies in these songs, though. In the song No Such Thing, JY's voice is very prominent, but the harmony vocals in other songs are really low in the mix, lacking the stand-out harmonies of Styx or Shaw-Blades.
Still, this is the most even and earnest of all of Shaw's solo albums with good vocals and excellent guitar playing throughout. Are you ready for some balls to the wall rock and roll? If you answered yes, then you must buy this album. Terry Thomas may have over-produced the end result, but could hardly be criticized for such a fantastic piece of rock and roll. Note: this fabulous song was written by Jim Peterik instead of Tommy. Tommy once remarked to me that he was "very messed up back then" as he wrote and recorded AMBITION and he soon there after found himself in rehabilitation and struggling with his musical future.
Once again Tommy wrote with hints of semi-autobiographical introspection but for the one and only time in his career, the base of the songs are stories and tales.
