|This is great heavy-edged, attitude-driven melodic hard rock, loaded with walls of guitars, crunching power-hooks, big choruses, and gang backing vocals. These guys often get compared to early Gotthard, but that's misleading, because they crank harder and pack more of a punch than Gotthard ever did. SHAKRA may not appeal to pure AOR fans, but in the world of melodic hard rock/metal, this band is definitely a force to be reckoned with.

|This is one hell of a good album. If you like Gotthard, this is a must-buy.

|This is absolutely a hit cd! You will not regret buying it! I understand it is taking Europe by storm, and I hope the storm will crash into America's shores soon! These guys have grilling guitar work, killer voices, no lyrics to be ashamed of in front of your friends (eh-hem...think "Falconer"), and they simply will put a song into your head and make it stay there for a loooong time. BUY IT! -Ciao! Silvae

|WHO THE HELL R THESE GUYZ???? What a great sound!!! awesome raspy voice...KICK ASS guitar work...just enough drums = ONE GREAT sound...NOT A BIT OF 90's sound to it.(imo thats a good thing)...NOT just this album but their entire discography..You know when a Live tune sounds great the band has something to offer...Worth a visit to ebay/local pawn shop (if anyone is that stupid to get rid of them) Quote the WidoMakr....never more

|Great Hard rock with strong Heavy Metal influences.THANK GOD Europe still rocks.Take a look also for a band named 'Evidence One' which is also good and maybe even better. 10+ on Arxontas Scale...Absolutely No Alternative...

|If you like the german rockers BONFIRE do yourself a favour and check this band out,they sound very alike.

|I heard 2 songs from Shakra and i'm very pleased. What do you suggest: Shakra: Power Ride or this album?
||Date: June 1, 2003 at 5:19|
|Rocker 65..You can't go wrong with either one. Power Ride is a little more thicker and melodic. There is not 1 bad song on either cd. Even there first self titled one cranks. These guys have turned out to be one of my favorite bands. It took me a month to take Power Ride out of my cd player. Everyone I show these guys to loves it. I hope that helps

|Thanks Krafty! Well I'll buy both of them when I earn some money . All my money goes for cds and I don't get it much (money)... It's really great to have the band like Shakra nowadays...
||Date: June 8, 2003 at 19:47|
|Geez.....these guys are definetly hittin on all eight. Great Band! "Why don't you call me" ROCKS!! Another European band shows us how it's done.....gotta hand it to em.
||Date: June 15, 2003 at 14:01|
|I finally got it yesterday. I must agree - Shakra Rocks! Power Ride is also as good as this one only the singer cut his hair (why?!?!).
||Date: July 14, 2003 at 7:16|
|Rocker..Im glad you see that you got this cd and that you enjoy it. Try to get the self titled one as well..rocks just as much. Also, as far as the singers hair; I know that Shakra has a new cd in August with a new singer because the old singer had to quit because of health reasons. Thats all I know. Hope this helps. Krafty

|Tengo este disco d los paisanos d GOTTHARD y la verdad es q aunque es un disco correcto, lo encuentro muy alejado en cuanto a calidad y temas, del d mi grupo Europeo actual favorito. le doy un 5'5 sobre 10!!

|Stonkin' hard rocking with great riffs, great solos, very solid production and great songs-christ what more do you need!!!! BUY IT
||Date: September 5, 2004 at 21:08|
|This is quite a heavy hard rock release. Musically I love it, the songs are awesome (especially 'Don't try to call me') but my one dislike, dare I say, of this album is the backing vocals. They're very 'heavy' / raspy / deep and I just don't really dig the sound too much. But it is a good hard rocking release and the songs are great.
||Date: August 31, 2006 at 19:49|
|These guys are just incredible. All their releases are top notch hard rockers. IMO they are the best hard rock band around today and you can't go wrong in picking up any of their cds....

|Short and sweet-The first cd sucks but the rest rock and are 10/10. Get them now!!! They are my new favorite band.

|My favourite Shakra-album. Athough I think all the four first albums were very good. The three latest albums, (Fall, Infected and Everest) has been lacking a punch to the songs. Now it seems that Mark Fox will leave the band. They doesn't seem to be very lucky with the singers. After seven albums, already two singers that quit. Wonder if the next singer again will mean a slight change in style.

|Another solid as f--k release from these guys...the guitars are always up front in the mix with this band,albeit never drowning out the vox.Dude can belt it out.The first three Shakra discs all sound great,get'em and crank 'em!
||Date: February 8, 2010 at 12:20|
|This is thier best cd no fillers solid all the way through.I agree with Swedish Rocker about the last three cds lacking in punch I wa totally disappointed in those 3.I'm curious about them getting a new singer I hadn't heard that but if they do change singers I hope they go back to the original sound of the first 3 or 4 cds.

|the ac dc influence is only ,this time ,on track 10"when the phone rings twice".now they have their own style: a very big melodic hard rock.big sound,big guitars and an excellent singer.sometimes they have a little metal temptation.hopefully not too much.this record is a very very great follow up to their first mighty and brilliant first effort.track 3 "stranger" is a real hit.two bonus tracks on the japan import.a new ? version of track 5 "and life begins" not interest (even if this ballad is beautiful)and a poor acoustic version of "the devil in me".absoluty no interest.
