Existing comments about this CD

From: Paulo-Fernandes Date: December 30, 2001 at 9:35
Good album, great songs, for all fans of Danger Danger, the only negative aspect for me is the production that could easily be better.

From: M. Allen Date: February 2, 2002 at 12:04
Possibly the most overhyped CD of 2001. Sure, it's better than the band's lackluster debut, but it's a far cry from Danger Danger. Apparently, upon departing from D2, Ted Poley forget how to really cut loose and crank out some kickin' hard rock. "Lovemetal" just kind of plods along the AOR/melodic rock vein without ever offering the big, catchy edge that won D2 so many fans. Bottom line, this isn't terrible, but there's no danger of you mistaking it for Poley's previous band...

From: dokken6008 Date: March 24, 2002 at 15:50
First of all, Ted's "previous" band was Bone Machine & they may have not have been as catchy as Danger Danger was, but they sure as hell rocked harder. Poley's new band, Melodica, is a very talented one & no, the production isn't perfect but there are a lot of very good light rock songs on here. If you want hard rock, buy an AC/DC or Rhino Bucket cd not this, because this isn't it. Truth is D2 will never reunite with Ted, so let's stop whining about the past. Aw, screw it, it's no use.

From: Rick Date: March 25, 2002 at 6:57
Dokken, I agree. Ted will never go back to D2 and he has a solid band with Melodica. This may not be "hard rock" but it is real good. If you ever get the chance to see them live, Ted and the boys won't disappoint. They ROCK!!

From: dokken6008 Date: April 2, 2002 at 16:10
Thanks, Rick. I appreciate it. Enough of the whining and bitching with all these guys. Just enjoy the music. Later!

From: Rick Date: April 2, 2002 at 20:36
Dokken, they are currently doing some dates in the U.S. on the east coast. If you ever get the chance to see them live, do it. They do mostly Melodica tunes, with a mix of Danger Danger and Bonemachine. Definitely worth the price of admission. Later.

From: dokken6008 Date: April 5, 2002 at 15:37
No, I live out in the west coast--southern California--so I won't be able to catch Melodica on this tour run. Thanks for the information, though. Good day!

From: Federico Date: April 8, 2002 at 20:51
A very good aor release. I prefere the songs from the 6th to the 11th than the first five. My favorite is sure Crazy, where two gods of melodic rock duet (Ted and Tony Harnell).

From: marc e/k Date: April 16, 2002 at 22:20
Nice of you guys to stick up for Mr Poley& Melodica, in Scotland no-one has even heard Melodica, so i say keep on rockin, MELODICA ROOL OK Rick if u hear they are coming to the UK let us know

From: koogles Date: July 20, 2002 at 14:06
Ted Poley's first CD with Melodica featured shower stall production and singing so flat I swore Ted had his vocal chords temporarily removed and run over by a lawn roller. Luckily for us all, this is a better CD. Still nowhere near as good as the Danger Danger stuff. Favorite track is: "I'll Never Break Your Heart". Tip for Ted: keep selling those toys on eBay and put all the $ into the production budget for your next CD.

From: robert Date: October 21, 2002 at 17:57
no es Danger danger, pero esta de p madre. lastima la produccion, pero bueno aki hay talento y buenos temas.. definitivamente me gusta,,

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: November 25, 2002 at 4:17
coincido totalmente con Robert

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: December 4, 2002 at 9:19
Este tío compone canciones de puta madre pero no puedo entender como puede tener una producción tan patetica. De un discazo con canciones increibles alo danger lo convierte en una guitarra sucia, una voz que incluso te suena mal, sonidos que se mezclan En definitiva un pedazo de disco super recomendado para amantes del hard melodico pero con una producción totalmente indigne para un tío tan rodado como Ted Poley. En cuanto a su 2º disco idem de lo mismo, aunque eso si ligeramente inferior en cal

From: mallorca´s rock Date: December 4, 2002 at 9:20
calidad pero con la misma pauperrima producción. Muy Recomendados

From: @ad Date: December 27, 2002 at 20:21
I don't really know how could someone compare D2 to this thing...i really don't know...is that actually Ted Poley who sings in the cd?oh shit!!!

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: January 3, 2003 at 12:00
Totalmente de acuerdo con mis colegas hispanos.Este disco es un claro ejemplo de como una PESIMA producción puede DESTROZAR lo que seguramente hubiese sido un gran disco.El disco tiene cierta similitud al 1º de Danger Danger temas marchosillos aunque quizás mas AOR y menos rockeros que los D.D.Hago esta critica despues de mi 1ª y supongo que mi ULTIMA escucha de este disco,que repito está BASTANTE BIEN,pero yo con producciones asi no puedo,ME REPUGNAN.ESTO ES INTOLERABLE.

From: Date: January 8, 2003 at 19:48
cierta similud al 1°?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!are fucked up in the head dude!!shut up and speak english!!!!!!

From: Jhonnyrocker Date: March 11, 2003 at 14:01
good record good songs but maybe a little bit lite, i would have appreciate a melodic rock album heavier than this one!just one more thing:the guitar player is simply orrible he's a crap he has really a bad guitar sound and absolutely no touch!!!bah....

From: JOSE Date: April 18, 2003 at 15:07
Mi estimado Champions, estas completamente mal en comparar este disco con el primero de D2, simplemente no hay punto de comparacion, tipos como Bruno y Steve no se dan todos los dias, por eso no creo que sea bueno compararlos, si quieres tomarlos como referencia de los maximo que ha hecho Ted esta bien, pero no creo que vuelva a hacer algo que le llegue a lo que es Danger Danger.

From: Big Mike Date: May 29, 2003 at 17:51
This CD rocks. Its melodic as and laden with hooks galore. Pity BIG isn't anything like this. As they say the production lacks a little but the CD is still very listenable. snaffle this one!

From: James Date: October 11, 2003 at 22:22
the whole problem is that the cd sounds the same all the way through. On a Song by Song basis the stuff is really good but after the first 5 songs i'm like "this sounds like the one before". If this had a few really solid fun rockers it would have been much better. if i put the songs on a mix cd of Ted's prior music then these songs are very good and fit well mixed with other rockers but this is way too much on the lite side for Teds great voice.

From: ROBERT Date: November 26, 2003 at 13:15
FALTA EL ACUSTICA DEL 2001' Y EL LONG WAY FROM LOVE... a mi me gustan bastante la verdad... eso si la produccion desastrosa!!

From: Melodic Rocker Date: February 9, 2004 at 14:59
I am tired of people whining about how these guys aren't heavy enough. Has anyone noticed their name is 'Melodica', not 'Metallica'? I personnally love a consistant album and this one, as is the case with all their albums, is just that. Someone mildly complained that the songs are a bit alike, well I am of the mind if it is great stuff then keep it coming. I prefer Melodica, overall to Danger Danger. I never cared for the party/crotch rock offerings of D2. Keep'em coming Melodica. Thanks.

From: zino il tino Date: April 7, 2004 at 15:45
no production and sorry for the guys poor songs. frontiers made another one.

From: TIM (2) Date: June 21, 2004 at 7:28
Better than the abysmal first album, but still a bit patchy. I know everyone keeps going on about the production, but it really does detract from some otherwise reasonable tunes. Am delighted to hear he's now back in DD, hopefully meaning they revert back to the more melodic earlier albums...

From: Carmine Rose Date: August 6, 2004 at 20:54
To whoever said Ted Poley would never reunite with D2, he's been back with them for 4 months!!!

From: spiritcarrieson Date: August 7, 2004 at 0:45
Yipee!!! He's back!! Finally! D2 w/poley and Melodica are great!!

From: Rycheage Date: August 15, 2004 at 16:59
Excellent follow-up to a less than stellar debut offering. "Summer Nights", "Lovemetal" and "I'll Never Break Your Heart" are great melodic tracks. This is better than the debut but still lags behind the Poley days of D2. Still an excellent album though and highly recommended!!

From: Geoff Date: August 15, 2004 at 20:58
I love this album. Musically excellent, Ted Poley on vocals - what more could you ask for? I don't skip tracks when I play it - always start to finish, and that is a sign of a great album. 'I'll never break your heart' is my fave... and I love 'Keep on runnin' with the brilliant Tony Harnell too. Killer disc! 8.5/10

From: janusz = poland Date: September 14, 2004 at 6:41
this is very good melodic rock exelent vocals and songs the briliiiant at me it's a Summer Nights , I'll Never Break Your Heart , Out of My Mind ,Crazy , Gotta Save Yourself this albu is verryyy good !!!!!!

From: Jesse Date: September 20, 2004 at 12:26
Melodica has some interesting tunes to offer. I don't believe that it ranks up there with Danger Danger, but it's good pure melodic rock that any fan of Danger Danger should be able to enjoy. Again, for all of you that said the Ted Poley/Danger Danger reunion wouldn't happen...how does it feel to have your foots in your mouths? I saw them last month and were absolutely INCREDIBLE! Ted still has the same amazing voice that he's had for all these years.

From: Big Mike Date: October 11, 2004 at 12:51
The production sucks in places on this but overall, an exceptional album. I've heard it described as embarrassingly melodic but I love the hooks and melody on this release. Great Songs, well done ted.

From: mr x Date: October 27, 2004 at 11:45
who was it said poley would never go back 2 D2!!!!

From: Andii Vamp Date: December 10, 2004 at 21:30
AMAZING CD!!!!!! Excellent AOR... the production lacks but the songs still shine and what's more.... the song Crazy featuring the amazingly talented and in my opinion best vocalist out there Tony Harnel!!! Wow, Tony and Ted together.... couldn't ask for more! Personally, i love this disc.

From: Davo Date: February 9, 2005 at 21:53
Love Metal is certainly not BONE MACHINE or D2 and yes it could be a bit heavier. LOVEMETAL is well written Pop rock. I'd say it has a similar melodic vibe to fastways "on target"

From: ILUVUNCLE TED Date: February 18, 2005 at 20:13
Great Disc! Very Light Melodic Rock, very easy to listen to and like! Ted Poley is truly an amazing voice. Something that I can listen to over and over again and not get sick of 9.10 rating!

From: Chad Date: April 9, 2005 at 23:44
I really like this album! Good stuff. Great music, Poley shines and drives this album. Much better than the first album which I do not dislike but rarely listen to. There are good songs on this one throughout. I can't wait for the new D2 but I hope that Ted teams up with Gerhard Pichler again down the line. With a solid second album under their belt, I would love to hear what they come up with on #3. I hope it sees the light of day.

From: WILMERKINGKOBRA Date: October 22, 2005 at 10:58

From: wzcj02 Date: April 9, 2006 at 11:24
Check out ted's new album "collateral damage".....If you are quick there are some soundbytes on melodicrock.com sounds killer.....much like danger danger. Possibly his best solo stuff ever.

From: juan carlos Date: September 12, 2007 at 0:23
Buen Melodic Rock, no tan impresionado la verdad, y la producción una pena realmente, como ya lo dijeron Patético.. Temas bien melódicos y la voz como siempre de Ted Poley en plena forma. Muy parejo en temas aunque los solos solo buenos nada que me impresione en ese aspecto. Muchos temas con un sentido acústico, "Crazy" me encanta y Tony Harnell la hace linda tambien, "I'll Never Break Your Heart" "Love Metal" las mejorcillas. Esa instrumental repetitiva e innecesaria IMO. 7/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 4, 2011 at 20:43
Very pleasant album IMHO...high caliber AOR songs with Ted Poley doing a great job...Tony Harnell(TNT fame) sings here as a backing vocalist...a great opening is "Summer Nights","Love Metal" a subtle one along with "I'll Never Break Your Heart","Shake" is brilliant and "Keep On Running" follows it closely...in general lines this is an album to LOVE!!!.92/100

From: 123charpenay Date: August 27, 2013 at 15:46
one super song,a hit:track 7 "shake".the rest ?hum a very hyper classic aor.very melodic,easy to listen but...no emotions,no sparks.average realise.this kind of aor hyper super classic is not really my cup of tea.i ve listen this cd many times but at the end only "shake"give me emotions and stay in my mind.so i ve sell this album several years ago on eBay in auctions.
