From: Fernando Brito Date: March 26, 2001 at 14:40
Boldly orchestral and soothingly melodic, it's blessed with the kind of nagghat'll stay with you for days on end that's how we can discribe their second album "The Name Of The Rose" in mid September in Japan. Burrn! magazine giving it another 95/100! and entered the international artists chart at #10 and the national chart at #29. In the UK it has received more glowing reviews from Frontiers and Hard Roxx, and the band have undertaken their first tour with dates in the UK and Germany to precede

From: David McKenzie Date: July 23, 2001 at 20:00
TEN followed up their brilliant debut with this stunning follow up opus. This one is rockier than the debut but when they do the ballads they do them with so much style. Vinny's amazing guitar work complements Gary's immense vocals soooo well. Incredible stuff !

From: Mark Date: August 13, 2001 at 20:49
Brilliant! I thought their debut was awesome, but this is possibly better. Amazing songwriting, singing, and playing by all concerned. This is state of the art hard rock!

From: robert Date: October 21, 2002 at 10:00
para mi su mejor disco, es impresionante oir esa guitarraza como suena en el 1er tema. la voz bien metida al igual q todos los instrumentos... Nunca olvidare cuando oi este disco por primera vez, me quede impactado. esto es buen hard rock con muchos toques melodicos. muchos grupos como este harian falta, pues a partir del 96' opino q la cosa empezo a flojear, si la comparamos con los 80' y principios d los 90'. muy bien TEN!!!!!!

From: EUROPE Date: October 30, 2002 at 8:53
TEN DESDE Q LOS VI POR PRIMERA VEZ EN LERIDA(ESPAA) ME QUEDE COMO ES ESTE GRUPAZO DE AOR/HARD Y GARY HUGUES UN GRAN COMPOSITOR DE LAS CANCIONES DE TEN Y UN GRANDISIMO CANTANTE POR CIERTO THE NAME OF THE ROSE LA CANCION SE SALE ES UN TEMAZO CAERO Y MELODICO A LO MAS IDEAL PARA COMENZAR CUALQUIER CONCIERTO. CREO Q SI NO FUERA SIDO POR TEN EL ROCK MELODICO DE LOS 90 NO SE HUBIERA ANIMADO A HACER BUENOS DISCOS. VIVA LOS TEN Y LA MADRE Q LOS PARIO

supermasterpiece!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: manos Date: February 18, 2003 at 19:33
Fantastic songs but the production sucks! It so trembly and dirty that takes value of the songs

From: Gonzalorock Date: April 5, 2003 at 11:57
When I heard this cd long time ago, I said Wow!!!, Superb!!!! The Name of The Rose is the reason I heard melodic rock. Thank Ten.

From: Chris Date: June 3, 2003 at 8:02
Utter crap.

From: Rycheage Date: July 20, 2003 at 17:12
I love the debut Ten album and looked forward to this album. But despite the good reviews for this, I think it's too long and the songs are too overblown. I prefer the first album. I think that had mor melody and better songs. This is a good album and worth having for sure, but it requires a lot more patience to get into. Hard to keep the interest up over 80 minutes.

From: Lambros-Greece Date: October 20, 2003 at 16:16
The best melodic hard rock album of 90's!!!When i first heard it i was charmed!The name of the rose,wildest dreams,don,t cry,wait for you,the rainbow,goodnight Saigon...For me it has already taken a place near classics like Machine head,L.Z.2,L.Z.4,In rock,On a storyteller's night,Rising etc.

From: CC Date: December 3, 2003 at 10:58
This album is worth buying for the title track alone,what a great fucking rock tune!

From: Jules Date: December 20, 2003 at 0:29
I was introduced to these guys from a guy at work. This CD gave me faith that true musicianship exists. The harmonies on track 4 and 11 were enough to bring me to tears, and that just does not happen. Very killer stuff, I can't wait to see how the new solo stuff will sound! I LOVE YOU GARY HUGHES!!!!!

From: meradona Date: January 12, 2004 at 10:38
el mejor con mucha diferencia, pero sin desmerecer a los demas cds de este grupazo, una pena que vinny burns los dejara ahora, pero nos dejaron este cd que se define en dos palabras im presionante

From: Bill Date: January 26, 2004 at 18:19
This is definately the follow up to WHITESNAKES - "1987", listen to the title track and "Wildest Dreams" and you will agree, great melodic CD!!!!!

From: Alejandro Date: February 3, 2004 at 13:48
Otra joya ms y van..En este disco empieza a tomar forma el bosquejo que explotaria en Spellbound.Pocas bandas pueden mantener un nivel tan parejo en casi todos sus discos,lo que las hacen nicas, y TEN, sin dudas lo es.Obviamente los laureles son para Hughes,men- tor absoluto del sonido del grupo.Sin puntos flojos se destacan THE NAME..GOODNIGHT..THROUGH THE FIRE,STANDING,DON`T CRY,suerte de pequeas joyitas en un panorama plagado de sutilezas. 8.50/10 carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

From: bdrums1971 Date: March 5, 2004 at 0:31
I just wanted to say I have listened to this cd to give it a chance and I am not thrilled. All the elements seem to be there for good melodic rock, but it just doesn't work for me. You may love it, but I DEFINATELY would not call it the sequal to the 1987 Whitesnake cd. Not even close! The guitarist is good, the keys are ok, the drums are ok, the singer is not very good in my opinion. Listen to a sound clip if you can before falling for the above gushing positive comments and buying the cd.

From: Lynchomaniac Date: June 6, 2004 at 8:15
Terrific, superb what more can i say!

From: Axe Machine Date: August 22, 2004 at 17:17
Definately one of British AOR's all time classics along with other greats such as FM-Indiscreet and Dare-Out of the Silence. Top notch.

From: Geoff Date: August 29, 2004 at 23:15
Great melodic hard rock CD - nothing more you can really say about it. Some absolute killer songs on this one.

From: Wyrm Date: November 15, 2004 at 0:44
Great music, terrible sound. Better wait for a remaster version...

From: Geoff Date: November 15, 2004 at 1:46
Sorry Wyrm you're just the unlucky customer in the line of a rage that's been building up in me for a while, but what the f*ck do some people expect from these guys?! They have the budget of an anus sculptor and in this case, guys like Ten still manage to pull off an excellent sounding album, only to have it dismissed by some folk like your good self. Honestly, no offence, but just listen to the songs mate. They're killer and the sound is really quite good in fact...

From: Wyrm Date: November 15, 2004 at 6:51
hmmmm, sorry to caused this rage.I REALLY love ten ("Great Music"), but I heard self released demo's which sounded a LOT better...(remember the Dutch band Rubicon?) Example:Give your honest opinion about the first song of the album (TNOTR) and I mean the moment that Gary starts singing. His voice (a nice one BTW) is MUCH(!) to loud in the mix. It realy sounds like bad demo (or joke ). I don't think it's a case of budget, but "just" taste; But I'm not the only one who has a problem with the mix

I like Ten and this and their first album were released the same year. Come December I used to check what CD's I had bought during the 12 months and make out a top 20 (don't say you've never done it). In 1996 both these albums (X and Rose) were at numbers 1 & 2 respectively. For me they still are the best things Ten have done (although I haven't got around to Return yet). Gary has a strong voice and I think he knows his strengths and doesn't resort to vocal acrobatics for the sake of it.

From: Gonzalo rock Date: August 12, 2005 at 6:15
Time passes and every time I listen it, like the best spanish wine, The Name of The Rose improves along the time. The perfect definition of meodic rock scene in the nineties, good but not supported.

From: Axe-Machine Date: December 10, 2005 at 13:02
Melodic Hard Rock at its absolute finest. The title track, Wildest Dreams, Dont Cry and Turn Around are some of Ten's finest moments. The opening track is certainly one of my favorite songs of all time, but back to the album...Gary's voice never sounded better and Vinny never smoked on Guitar more effectively. No melodic rock collection is complete without this album. Absolutely Essential. 9.5/10.

From: TomStavely Date: April 8, 2006 at 14:00
If you like 80s rock buy 80s rock at least 80s rock was cool in the 80s these guys need to get a life and except they werent around in that era they should be a europe tribute band or run a 80srock record shop not making music that is fake and forced in the 80s the music was right for that era it was natural at that time and those bands did it and it was fantastic, these type of bands just have no identity they should leave the music to its era this s forced music its fake and not from the heart

From: DANTE Date: June 7, 2006 at 13:02
DISCAZO. DE PRINCIPIO A FIN, NO TIENE DESPERDICIO. WILDEST DREAMS, DONT CRY, THE RAINBOW, OBRAS DE ARTE. SUPREMO HARD-AOR. IMPRESIONANTE DE NUEVO VINNY BURNS. GARY HUGHES, A LO JOHN WETTON. GENIALES.

From: Carlos A. Date: September 9, 2006 at 17:36
GRANDIOSO.Si el 1disco es un non plus ultra del Hard-Aor,este trabajo es otra Obra Maestra y repiten(sin llegar al autoplagio)su sello acustico personal mezcla de Epic-Aor con guitarrazos y un siempre inspirado Hughes, estilo q mantienen escrupulosamente al menos hasta el Return To Evermore(2004)."Wildest Dreams","Don't Cry","Goodnight Saigon" son clasicos malditos. Porq sera q los Anglosajones o Escandinavos a diferencia de Latinos tiene tanta facilidad para crear melodias AOR unicas??? 9.9/10

From: Melo Date: December 1, 2006 at 1:20
No words needed ! Masterpiece ! 10\10

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 11, 2006 at 11:10
I thought this all to brilliant band had backed themselves into a corner by having put out such an amazing debut. I didn't think they could really follow it up with something of the same caliber. WOW, did they prove me wrong!!! This is just stellar and even more epic in sound than the first. If you have not checked this band out yet, don't wait any longer. You are missing some of the best AOR currently being recorded. Another essential purchase!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 30, 2007 at 23:08
Excellent album!!!!,"The name of the Rose" is an epic melodic hymn in all aspects!!!!.10/10

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: September 3, 2007 at 11:33
GOOD ALBUM 88/100 NICE MELODIC HEAVY METAL/EPIC AOR Even if the sound it's not as good as it's should be !

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 31, 2011 at 21:53
Couldn't agree more with the positive comments above...still i think that the opening track "The Name Of The Rose" is a great melodic epic song ...apart from that songs such as "Wildest Dreams","Wait For You","The Rainbow","Goodnight Saigon","Wings Of The Storm"(this one rocks good!),"Standing In Your Light"(my God what a beautiful ballad) & "You're My Religion" make the album really appealing for the listeners...a good option to pick surely...93/100

From: ROBERT Date: June 7, 2012 at 13:53
for me No is A.O.R., is HARD ROCK / MELODIC HARD ROCK

From: hair metal again Date: February 27, 2013 at 4:36
very good release by TEN with Mike Stone in production and many good songs in it !the band seems to find an approach between commercial and more epic moments and the result is very very good!"dont cry","goodnight saigon" and "standing in your light " are the highlights and i believe it will satisfy everyone
