5.0 out of 5 stars DAN HILL SPEAKS WITH POETIC TRUTH Jan. 9 2011
Format:Audio CD
This early recording speaks to me about finding your way in the world even though your parents and loved ones don't see your vision for your life.

Although it is from the 1970's the songs still hold up.... TODAY.....because the truth never gets old.

4.0 out of 5 stars All Time Lover's Classic.... Aug. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
Even though this album was originally released way, way back in the mid/late seventies, it still holds a warm place in my heart for 'romantic ballads'. The huge hit single, "Sometimes When We Touch" is one of the most heart wrenching, romantic songs of that era. The way that Mr. Hill sings it with such passion and raw emotion still brings goose-bumps to me every time I hear it. His simple, yet meaningful lyrics tell of the pain and anguish that he tries to convey so well that you cannot help but be touched by the tune.
The rest of this album also marks well with regards to his songwriting ability. Simple, yet meaningful songs, each telling their own special story.
I would recomend this LP to anyone who is, or ever has been, in love. You cannot go wrong here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than You Think Oct. 21 2004
By Mke W. Davey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to this CD since I first purchased it on "Eight Track" tape. I just wanted to mention Two songs that get burried by the well deserved commercial success of Sometimes When we Touch. They are Longer Fuse and Fourteen Today. Two fantastic songs, if you haven't given them the time to deeply touch you, and they will, Please do. They are a part of what this CD is about. You'll be glad you did. And by the way, I still have a "Like New" Vinyl Recording of this CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's an old album, middle-of-the-road stuff..it's okay though March 25 2014
By Privateofcourse - Published on Amazon.com

Hard to review an album this long after it was released. I'll try to be fair. Track 1 is the most memorable of course, being Dan Hill's big hit ballad, and the rest? Bit introspective, bit too reflective at times, a little bit bland sometimes. But it's pleasant enough and I was happy to hear it through to the end. Definitely of its time. My wife likes it...unsurprisingly. I think if you're after a bit of Dan Hill for nostalgic reasons, and you dont have fond memories of this particular album, you may be better getting yourself a 'best of' album.

2.0 out of 5 stars fAIR May 22 2010
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you read my reviews you know my practice of dollar gobbling--going out and finding handfuls of dollar vinyl and buying it is massive capsules. Well I just did.

Well, I don't know if I ever knew who Dan Hill was or if I even looked at this before checkout, but either way, I never put 1+1 together before buying that this was the guy who did "Sometimes When We Touch." which people actually use with thick comforters of irony. (What TV add was this in a year or two ago? I forgot.)

For all I knew Longer Fuse could have been free jazz, and when I got it home, I let it sit among the 10,000 other fishes, and digging around today for review ideas, took it out and decided to play it.

So I turn it on. Oh My GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWD! What the hell did I do. I, captain hip, crave monger of Coltrane, progressive FM dude, went out and inadvertently got myself the album with "Sometimes We Touch" on it. You know that night at the bar when you decide to have that one extra drink and then there is a cop in your rear view. Well, same feeling. Worse

I won't, well, touch "Sometimes When We [see fourth word in this paragraph]. If you don't understand how bad this is, you should probably be in Amazon's housewares department.

The rest of Longer Fuse is actually not that bad. Hill must have tried to go big with the single. The rest of this is pretty middle of the road AM 70s soft pop. Nothing remarkable, but the musicianship is good, and when Hill is not gushing at the Dinah Shore show rafters, his voice is actually ok.

I won't be playing this next to Nick Drake or Steely Dan, or anything else, anytime soon, but like that feeling you get when that cop does not ask for your papers and tells you to get home safe, Longer Fuse is not as bad as it could have been
