2.0 out of 5 stars A "Reel" Disappointment September 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
After creating three bright, polished and highly produced symphonic rock masterpieces, STARCASTLE completely fails to deliver on this piece of AOR drivel. Forget all references to YES or KANSAS on this one! If the album cover doesn't set off the alarm bells for you, song titles like "Half A Mind To Leave Ya" and "Whatcha Gonna Do" should make it clear that there's precious little progressive rock to be had here. Even the poppier moments of Citadel ("Can't Think Twice" & "Could This Be Love") are miles above this shamelessly commercial, MOR travesty. The record company must have had a gun to the band's head to make them stoop so low. This is one that we could have done without on CD! It was the group's last studio album (no wonder!!) and the real pity is that anyone who hears this Starcastle album before any of the others would probably be hopelessly turned off the band. Only "Song For Alaya" (lead vocals by Stephen Hagler) and "When The Sun Shines At Midnight", both ballads no less, even hint at the old Starcastle sound. The production is good and the playing is tight. But it's wasted on this poppy fluff. Even Gary Strater's nimble bass lines can't save this material. Do yourself a favour and start out with "Starcastle" or "Fountains of Light". Leave this one for the fanatics and completists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Starcastles'Last March 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This cd is different than some of there previous albums, but it is Starcastle and has different songs than the other albums. A bit commerical, perhaps, but they were trying to make radio airplay. They were still a supergroup to me and and rank up there with Yes,Boston and Kansas, who they sound a lot like. They just weren't recognized as much with airplay or supergroup status.

2.0 out of 5 stars Starcastle's Top 40 Attempt March 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Warning: Unless you have decided to have every Starcastle release, this is not recommended for you. This CD sounds like a different band than you hear on their first release "Starcastle", "Fountains of Light" or "Citadel". Starcastle was probably under pressure from their record company to get a Top 40 Hit which means big bucks for everybody, but especially the record company. I've always liked Terry Luttrell's singing style which I first heard on R.E.O. Speedwagon's first album, simply titled "R.E.O. Speedwagon". Why R.E.O. replaced Terry with Kevin Cronin is unknown to me, but Starcastle was blessed by whoever made this decision. Back to this CD. Again, this third album by starcastle fails to meet the quality established by the three formentioned releases. When I purchased "Reel To Real", I listened to it once and filed it away. After a few weeks, I dug it out and listened to it again, and have no desire to give it a third chance. Save your hard earned cash and get their other releases!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stars Come Out At Night To Play March 11, 2011
By Prognut
Format:MP3 Music
Yes, this is different than the first 3 albums. Go figure... groups try to progress and evolve. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This collection of music is obviously aimed at a more commercial market in an effort to gain a wider base of support, much like Peter Gabriel did with his "So" album. But that does not necessarily make this a bad album, just different. Having said that, I looked at this album with fresh eyes and an open mindset. I do like it. I found myself humming some of the tunes when I didn't realize it. There is a couple of riffs that are unmistakenly similar to the earlier music, but they are short lived and inevitable. It may not be the majestic sonatas that we are used to, but they found a way to focus that energy into a 3 minute pop song, without doing a hell of a lot of damage. If you are looking for more of the same type of music as the first 3 albums, you will be disappointed with this effort. But if you listen to this album as a stand alone piece, I think you might enjoy it. Just consider it to be a rock album from a completely different group, and relax, sit back, and by all means, try to enjoy it!

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not Starcastle April 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Having been a fan of Starcastle since the first album I eagerly awaited the release of this album in 1978. Much to my chagrin I was extremely disappointed when I heard it for the first time after purchasing it. It was a mish-mash of "wannabe" AOR pop songs that sounded nothing like the first three albums. This was the record company executives trying to change them into something they were not: radio stars. To make my point Starcastle themselves tried to get this album buried. It's so bad that I refuse to complete my collection by buying the cd. So, a warning to all: if you are a fan of the Starcastle sound just keep listening to the other six albums and don't waste your money on this drivel.
