Straight ahead hard rock from these guys ! If you like early Gothard or Krokus you know what to expect. No compromise in your face hard rock. Their follow up releases are more mature and better.

From: Rockhead Date: March 18, 2004 at 5:19
The worst of all Shakra albums-but still great. Hard driving riffs with very strong melodies and hooks. Ac/Dc, Gottard, Krokus hybrid with a strong production.

From: Cruise Date: March 19, 2004 at 17:50
I like all the Shakra albums and this is where it all began. Some superb hard rock coming out of Switzerland these days between Gotthard, Crystal Ball and Shakra. It's almost like grunge and nu-metal never happened for the Swiss - lucky them! This album is hard rock with hooks at its best, but like Rockhead says, all their other albums are even stronger than this.

From: M. Allen Date: March 21, 2004 at 20:05
The guitars on this bad boy have more power than Popeye on a spinach binge, the power-hooks are bigger than Rosie O'Donnell's grocery bill, the red-hot riffs will pin you to the wall like a bug splattered on a Mack truck's windshield, and there is more in-your-face attitude than a pissed off Doberman with a sizzling firecracker shoved up its ass. Yep, this is some shockingly good melodic hard rock, the kind that proudly hangs its balls out there for all the world to see.

From: MelodicBoy Date: April 11, 2004 at 14:56
I had this a while back, and it didn't blow me away. The guitars seemed competent, but the music didn't seem to have enough hooks, or the choruses weren't big enough, or something. I'm hearing great things about some of the other CDs they put out-should I give them another chance? I love stuff like Jaded Heart, Bonfire, Fair Warning, and Frontline, and would love to find another band to get into. Any help would be appreciated!!

From: Rockhead Date: April 11, 2004 at 18:29
Hi Melodicboy-Like you I wasnt overly impressed with the debut but each CD since has been truly awesome. From the bands you have listed I suggest you acquire the others immediately.

From: MelodicBoy Date: April 12, 2004 at 22:08
Thanks Rockhead. I appreciate the input. Will see about getting some of the others next time I buy CDs online.

From: Mark Date: May 7, 2004 at 6:01
This is how rock should be played! All of Shakras albums are a real treat! Get out and buy.

From: MelodicBoy Date: June 5, 2004 at 1:31
Hey Rockhead-Just got "Rising", and I'd have to say you're right. It kicked my ass, then I got to track 11, TRAPPED, and was blown away! Awesome guitar sound on that one! Will be getting "Moving Force" and "Power Ride" ASAP! Thanks for the recommendation.

From: Rockhead Date: June 5, 2004 at 12:01
Hey melodicboy glad you like it-It is one of my recent favourites!!. Now check out Powerride for more of the same!!

From: ninjapeter Date: April 6, 2005 at 0:20
I just discovered this band and love them. Great album here. Straight forward guitar driven rock with a good rhythm and a little on the raw side. Similar to Krokus, Gotthard, Roko and Transit. Should be more bands like this winner.

From: twisted_vikki Date: August 20, 2005 at 7:30
If you like the first 3 albums of Gotthard this band will (hard)rock your head off!!!!

From: Metal T Date: August 23, 2008 at 21:14
Some solid Swiss hard rock! "Sweet Perfume","Sally Is Gone" & "Down'N Dirty" kick tail.Good Stuff.--

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: January 14, 2009 at 20:22
Waoo The powerful album! I Am charmed with these types of album.

From: rallen399 Date: February 8, 2010 at 12:08
I'm surprised so many comments don't think this cd is one of thier better one's, I have to disagree.Hard rockers like Hands On The Trigger,Devil In Me, I Let The Sun Go Down and Down And Dirty are as good as anythin they've done.I much prfer the earlier cds with Pete Wiedmer singing.The newer cds like Fall,Infected and Everest are pretty lame and un-melodic.This one Power Ride and Moving Force are IMO their bestby far,Rising is very good too with the new singer.

From: 123charpenay Date: February 26, 2013 at 10:25
first effort from these swiss hard rockers.the record start with track 3.the two first tracks are very average.it s a weird idea to put two weak songs for opening the album.since track 3 to the end it s a fireworks of excellent hard rock influenced very strong by ac/dc.big sound big guitars big drums and bass.classic hard rock but very effective.the singer is perfect for this type of music and the production is really excellent.no bonus tracks on the japan import.

From: Ydol eM Date: August 30, 2014 at 9:08
In 1998 Shakra was only apprentices that learnt from such masters as AC/DC and Whitesnake. At that time being in their own country there were already several journeymen like Krokus and Gotthard who were doing their job very well. All in all Shakra's work was good straight-ahead hard rock. IMO the top of this album is the singer and the bottom is the front and back of the cover that looks like a demo version of a local party band. But as for music - nice to listen. 80/100.
