I bought this CD by this dutch band back in 1994 when it came out on an independent label (Inside Out), and I still play it on a regular basis, maybe a trademark of a classic I guess anyway..... If you like melodic rock with progressive undertones (in particular canadians SAGA) buy this album at all cost!!! Itīs a classic melodic rock CD with fantastic songs and a big production, rating 10/10. I recommend this masterpiece to all to all fans of Saga, Dream Theater, Journey, Royal Hunt, etc

Hey, look above, why you have my code (pppool.de) ?!? You are not from my computer

Now I got a "d" from Dan..

From: Nanteau Date: October 12, 2003 at 19:55
Hey.. why the "d" is gone again??? And DAN doesn't answer..

Indeed sounding a bit like a SAGA clone. But itīs not a cheap copy; songs are excellent and very catchy. Not too much prog so that also melodic collectors will be pleased. Can recommend this one. 80/100

From: Harald Date: February 1, 2008 at 14:22
an undiscovered masterpiece, polished high energy melodic prog/rock mixing classic Saga, Marillion, Enchant (Blueprint), Prophet (1985), Fortune(1985) and Autodrive (long island release 1995) together. highly recommend for EVERY melodic rock fan, without a doubt 100/100 !!!!!
