AllMusic Review by

The Storm are a prime example of a makeshift musical project built for instant success, but even that aspiration fell short from this group of mainly ex-Journey members. "I've Got a Lot to Learn About Love," with its clich├ęd power-ballad recipe, managed to crack the Top 30 in 1992, reaching the number 26 spot, but that was all the fame that the Storm would ever achieve. The remaining tracks suffer from unimaginative, pre-constructed, post-arena rock redundancy. The guitar playing via Josh Ramos is laborious, and even the talents of Rollie, Smith, and Valory fail to administer any musical redemption. Kevin Chalfant's vocals may be the only attribute to the album, but songs like "In the Raw" and "Show Me the Way" reveal the album's lack of songwriting strength and creativity. This hurried, shoddy-built bit of predictable guitar-ballad rock is best left forgotten.
