amg review
The Eagles Don Felder produced this 1983 effort, and he has friends galore pack the proceedings with lots of musicianship, the late Carlos Vega is on drums, as are Joe Vitale, Russ Kunkel and Tris Imboden; fellow latter-day Eagle Timothy B. Schmit provides backing vocals, and there are appearances by Jeff Lorber, Joe Lala, Kenny Loggins, Dave Mason, and Albhy Galuten. The record sounds like "The Heat Is On," Glenn Frey's very '80s-sounding 1984 hit from Beverly Hills Cop. Kenny Loggins co-writes "Never Surrender" with the guitarist, and melodies abound on tracks like "Who Tonight," which has some of the feel of Danny Kirwan and Bob Welch's post-Fleetwood Mac solo work. "Never Surrender" could be "Life in the Fast Lane" redux. Airborne plays like an album that was given to the artist out of respect for his work in the trenches. ~ Joe Viglione, Rovi
