If you like Bonfire but wish their sound had a bit more shake & sass to it, then this is the band for you. Vocalist Pete Wiedmer bears a strong resemblance to Claus Lessman, but the guitars on this album are pumped up and more powerful, with a heavier edge than Bonfire's. Make no mistake, SHAKRA is very much a melodic hard rock band, but with a harder edge than groups like Bonfire, Jaded Heart, Frontline, etc., and that makes this one ride well worth taking.

Wow ! What a POWER RIDE! This is Swiss Hard Rock at it's best. Great power production, big guitars, a cool voice and you'l be in ROCK-Heaven.

From: ROCKIN SCOTT Date: March 20, 2004 at 1:28
This cd is just kicks ass ,this is by far the best SHAKRA cd .Great production ,a wall of sound when it comes to the music and Pete Wiedmer voice is wonderful.Dose anyone know what happened to Pete ,he was not singing on the new cd Rise.Get it ,this one you will keep in your cd player for some time.

This is a stunning album! Cool songs...Big production & some exemplairy riffing going on! It sounds bloody huge, but in this I find a wee problem. You can't crank it too loud else your ears feel like they want to explode. The guitars are far to heavily prominent in the mix. This aside though...this is a great, powerful album with some killer tracks. It ROCKS like a MUTHA!!

From: Rockhead Date: March 20, 2004 at 12:45
Agree with all the above-a fantastic hard rocking release with catchy as hell sounds and some superb riffing. A monster!!

From: AOR freaky Date: March 22, 2004 at 4:43
Blistering in your face hardrock ! Good one !

From: GlenRavine Date: March 31, 2004 at 11:05
You cannot go wrong with this DISC - straight ahead guitar driven skin pounding rock to the fullest. I really enjoyed this DISC - one of the best ones. Sound production and writing is fantastic.

From: Music Man Date: April 21, 2004 at 9:11
Huge guitars, thunderous drums, superb production. This one will blow the wax out of your ears.

From: Geoff Date: September 5, 2004 at 21:11
To this date this is my favourite Shakra release. More melodic than the previous releases, this has my vote. The riffs are still massive, the backing vocals still huge but the songs, IMO, are better here. My favourite is actually the beautiful 'Out in the rain', but 'Why don't you call me' and plenty others thrill me too. Awesome band, great CD!

Como dice el comentario, parecen BONFIRE, pero para mí parecen aquellos BONFIRE mas pesados. Me encanta este CD y el siguiente, RISING, son dos pedazos de CDs. La verdad es que con esta banda y SHYLOCK, no extraño a BONFIRE para nada, más todavia después de FREE.

This is the best of the Shakra albums...I love to crank this one out with the windows down. Straight ahead rock'n'roll..You will not be disappointed by this one. Get It All Out is such a killer song. The guitar work on this album is second to none. This is a must have album. 90/100.

From: overkillrulz Date: December 31, 2008 at 16:51
Um...just get this. Its a 10/10.

From: Metal T Date: July 1, 2009 at 13:59
Some hard driving hard rock/metal without alot of pissing around...Plenty of riffs,cool vox and strong writing.'Why Don't You Call Me','Watching You','She's My Pride','Out In The Rain' and 'Tell Me' are choice.Too bad the singer is no longer in the fold.Great Sound!

From: WidoMakr Date: November 25, 2015 at 21:24
Just a great band (and my fav album from them) that many do not know about. Like was has been stated before me, awesome guitar work and a vocalist whose raspy voice is just the ticket for this band...sadly due to health issues Pete could not continue as the lead vocalist, still a band definitely worth listening to. Quote the WidoMakr...never more
