Existing comments about this CD

From: Steve F. Date: May 7, 2001 at 20:45
A decent album, but I was kind of disappointed to hear a difference in the band's sound. The heavy metal sound is replaced by a shiny 80's-hard rock texture, and the bass levels are turned somewhat down. Guess the band wanted to get a broader appeal to the masses. At least they still have David Zaffiro playing on the album (he left after recording was finished) - that saves the album somewhat for me personally. (7.5 out of 10)

Toned down, but good. More bluesy at times. Shakin' It: a reflection of the TV ministry sex scandals in the 80's?!?!

From: M. Allen Date: April 11, 2003 at 23:42
Less metal, more hard rock-oriented than the band's previous albums. David Zaffiro's guitars still sound pretty darn good, though, as someone mentioned, the bass could have been better. Not a perfect example of Christian hard rock, but the songs still have plenty of energy to get you movin'. In the discography of BLOODGOOD, this is one of the lesser efforts, but it's still a fine slab of holy hard rock.

From: Andrew Date: August 24, 2003 at 20:10
Apparently the bass is low because most of the low end of the sound was accidentially removed from the mix. Still a cool album, despite the lighter sound.

From: Geoff Date: March 10, 2005 at 22:49
'Never be the same' and 'What have I done' are pretty good, but the sound isn't great here. Yeah, not sure what to make of this one. Being another christian band there are still lyrics which make me cringe, but these guys were not as bad as some. This is decent hard rock, IMO.

From: aorteto Date: October 22, 2006 at 10:08
Excelente mezcla de metal y hard melodico nos ofrece esta banda en este disco. Otra banda cristiana de las buenas. Temazos- NEVER BE THE SAME-WHAT HAVE I DONE-IN THE PRESENCE-SEVEN.Influencias de DOKKEN y FIFTH ANGEL

From: Metalmusicman Date: January 1, 2007 at 15:48
The band with a much more comercial sound and aproach this time round. Almost like an effort to apeal the hairband crowd. Whatever, I still thought that "Seven" and "She's Gone" were just stellar. A lot of the disc I could have done without however.

From: juan carlos Date: May 6, 2007 at 16:54
Acá en Perú sonó el tema "Heaven on Earth" en un espacio de Metal Cristiano que había hace tiempazo. Hardrock con tintes metal y tambien melódicas como ese temazo llamado "What Have I Done?" mi favorita sin dudas, "The World (Keeps Movin' Around)" otro temazo melódico. Cierto Sergio esto es un cruce entre Dokken y Fifth Angel. Muy bueno aunque muy corto el tiempo y el voceras solo aceptable. 8/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 9, 2011 at 20:55
Brilliant album by all means!!!...catchy yet strong songs in here ...a mix of Hard Rock with AOR,well balanced,really great...CCM band....best shots for me are "Never Be The Same","The Presence","What Have I Done?" & "Do Or Die"...get it!!!.89/100

From: 123charpenay Date: March 5, 2013 at 12:41

for being totally honest i can add that the production is not exceptional(too raw not enough polished).
