Definitely in the top 5 of my all time greatest.A too good to be true album in the veins of HEART, VIXEN & WITNESS.Best tracks are "Now That Its Over ", "Why Is A Good Love"....well actully every song is top notch.A bit expensive but.....BUY.

Awesome! I have the Korean pressing. The front cover is poor, that means no lyrics. Has someone this release? What is inside the booklet, are there pictures, lyrics? ... or I got an obscure release. The CD looks like OK, with serial.

From: ARXONTAS Date: February 19, 2003 at 10:40
Chicks sometimes have bigger balls,and attitude from a lot of mans.Gudrun Laos,Lee Aaron,Bitch are great examples.Leave your male chauvinist pig complex bihind and surrender with no terms into this album superiority.Τhank you Teo_3 cause you fill my collection with another one jewel.WE NEED ALBUM LIKE THIS...Absolutely No Alternative Garbage...

Press it again!!

If you like female fronted melodic rock you won´t get any better chances for 100% satisfaction!!!

From: jessica96fish Date: February 28, 2004 at 10:47
yes this is one of the best cds of all time.forget about annica badley screaming lol.save some money and buy this gem.you won't get much better.if you like lee aaron heat perfect crime.atomic angel.just buy it now....

From: Guardian 777 Date: March 10, 2004 at 21:29
Put it this way: The best female fronted album ever recorded. All the tracks are 10/10. "Long Shot" is an anthem...what a guitar riff, what a chorus, what a voice of Gudrun. This album is the holy grail of the female fronted albums....no more to say

If anybody´s in need of this fabulous CD - we have on ein stock in almost perfect condition, please contact me! "info@ramaro-records.de" Bye Markus

From: Rockhead Date: July 28, 2004 at 4:13
Be careful if ordering from Ramaro Records-I never received the Cd I ordered and am still trying to gey my back. Aproach with caution!!

From: Jonny_B Date: August 25, 2004 at 15:44
OH YEAH! Where have you been all my life?!!! This is THE essential female-fronted rock album. One of the few that's worth the value of the average eBay cost. Every song is solid, the vocals are ballsy, and...well, you'll have to check it out yourself. A MUST-HAVE!!!

From: Harald Date: August 26, 2004 at 14:03
Jonny_B, check out the SCARLET ROSE debut CD (Prime)for more of the same magic, another excellent female fronted MR CD from Germany, you´ll love it.

From: jessica96fish Date: September 1, 2004 at 7:07
also try these for size.misslead blonde on blonde tc kross heat aurora rockaway darby mills some of these are very hard to get hold of.but worth it!!

From: Geoff Date: September 1, 2004 at 7:54
I'd like this a whole lot better if I hadn't spent about 4 or 5 songs wondering if I was listening to a female or male singer when I heard it first. I can't forget that, but that said... although I hate the vocals for this CD, the songs are excellent. I'd have loved to hear it with male vocals, or even with a lady with a good voice - not so f*cking rough. As I say, killer songs and musicianship, just awful vocals.

From: Jonny_B Date: September 3, 2004 at 21:54
Good suggestions! Got the Darby Mills cd, and a couple mentioned others on cd-r. but I can forget about affordable purchases until there's some reissues.

From: jessica96fish Date: October 11, 2004 at 8:06
hey jonny b.also try these for size.yankee heaven(shiva singer)alyson avenue coastline and nexx.all a bit easier to find and afford.

From: Franck Date: December 16, 2004 at 11:02
I fianlly got this one on Ebay. What a wonderful cd !!! Great harmonies, wonderful vocals ! That's what music is all about !!! Enjoy !!!!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 1, 2005 at 23:56
Killer AOR album of the beauty Gudrun Laos, Otra joyita del AOR hecho por una mujer, la hermosa Gudrun Laos dejo este clasico del AOR, en onda a Witness, temazos como Jericho, We Called It Love(mis favoritas QUE JOYITAS), Now That Its Over, Heartbreak Road, Long Shot, One More Night Convierten este album en todo un clasico del genero que Amamos, asi que no puede faltar en tu coleccion. Y como dijo Sergio arriba a mi me gustan Benjamin Orr y Diamond Head y!!! asi son los gustos.

From: brad Date: April 18, 2005 at 15:00
Not many female singers are as good as this one A++++++++!!!!!!!

From: Who Cares Date: May 2, 2005 at 5:51
ARXONTAS are you a feminist 'carpet licker' or something? No one is bashing females here, all the guys basically had positive things to say (except Geoff, who likely doesn't appreciate too much). Maybe you should talk with a therapist before your next post. What does 'bihind' mean? Great CD BTW.

From: Geoff Date: May 2, 2005 at 21:41
How much do you just hate idiots? Can't stand 'em personally. An individual like myself can lay down thousands of comments on albums he loves, filling up about 1000 pages on this site. Then out of the snow an idiot arrives, sees a comment by Geoff on a CD he loves (eg. Who Cares, commenting on Laos) that is not favourable and just presumes that Geoff likes nothing? Just because he doesn't like the same CD as him? For fuck's sake...

From: SCANDI Date: June 30, 2005 at 15:31
YEAH, this time around I'm the lucky person to bring you good news This CD will be re-released at mtm in August!! Just look for quite a few ebay user who now throw out their LAOS CDs to make still big money. I guess they already must know..

From: Swazi Date: July 11, 2005 at 16:02
THANKS for your valuable input, Scandi !! I was just about to spend a lot of bucks on the original release. Quite unnecessary, as it seems ... :-), the MTM site states Aug. 22 as release date. Let's see what this one costs !

From: Jez Date: July 18, 2005 at 13:13
Have had this on CD-R for years (couldn't stretch to the Ebay prices) so it's great to finally have a proper copy of this. MTM have come up trumps again with this one, with the bonus tracks being an excellent addition, especially the version of 'More Than A Feeling'. The album itself is a fabulous slice of Melodic rock and truly deserves the praise that has been heaped on it over the years and is right up there with Witness, Heart etc. Yet another quality re-issue to blag straightaway.

From: TIM (2) Date: July 26, 2005 at 2:43
This is a good disc, although not quite the classic that some of the comments suggest. As Geoff mentions, the vocals are rough, & some of the tunes are a little workmanlike. What I REALLY like are the bonus tracks on the re-issue. They're the best 3 tracks on this album by a distance IMO. The cover of "More than a Feeling" sounds great, "Come Tomorrow" is AOR heaven with sublime keys, and "Love Sweet Love" is another awesome slab of AOR. Decent album, great bonus tracks. 8/10.

From: Eddie Van Driver Date: July 28, 2005 at 8:30
I agree the vocals on the first track are a bit rough, after that Ms Laos sings with power & spirit. By the time you get to Long Shot you know this is a classic release. Guess I'll be shelling out 15 bucks to get the three bonus tracks.

From: Kip Date: September 1, 2005 at 20:07
This album is tight. I'm a big fan of butch female vox on melodic hard rock and Laos is perfect for this. It's almost like listening to Doro Pesch's not so evil twin sister doing Lita Ford-ish melodic rockers. I'd compare this to Chrissy Steele's 'Magnet' album with stronger overall tunes and catchier choruses. Good stuff. 8.5/10

From: dean Date: September 5, 2005 at 5:24
The bonus tracks on this are awesome-they easily make buying this again worthwhile. And as for the vocals-I personally think they fit the music perfectly. Reminds me of a more melodic Warlock.

From: Wotty Date: September 14, 2005 at 5:01
Received this along with the Flame cd,and what a little gem this.I agree with other commenters about the strained vocals on the first few tracks but it just improves greatly as the album progresses.Well worth a listen/investment and for me the stand-out track is "Long Shot"..

From: SCANDI Date: October 10, 2005 at 8:33
Clear winner!!!! "I want it" is a PERFECT rocker. Absolutely WITNESS-like stuff. Well, it's all said before. I only will add DARE with "Blood from stone". Kinda like that. I just can't understand what's that good on the BOSTON-cover??? It's sounding interesting, of course, but the most loved chords before the refrain are missing.. WHAT the hell..?!? Plus I don't like the production of mtm. There're light "plops" within the sound. 9,3/10

From: pereira Date: November 28, 2005 at 18:47

From: HysteriX Date: December 29, 2005 at 14:42
I have listened to the album for the second time now, and it's a really great rock album. But I was shocked when I just got in here and saw that the vocals are female... at first I was sure that the singer was a male, then I started to wonder if it was a female after all, but then I convinced myself that it WAS a male... Wow, I was so wrong... but the album is still great! I Want It is a killer, what a chorus!

From: Melodiker Date: July 31, 2006 at 9:49
This is CLASSIC Stuff ! I love it ! Great !

From: Heavy.AOR Date: August 1, 2006 at 4:46
BRILLIANT 10/10.I no love female voc. music but this is realy great i remember to Tindrum.

From: manny Date: December 28, 2006 at 19:01
Sin duda uno de los mejores albums de AOR Female Fronted!!Espectacular el tema que cierra el Cd "Higuer ground" un medio tiempo de los que hacen epoca, el "Why is a good love" que suena como si a los AC-DC haciendo AOR, fantastica es también "Now that it's over" y la que pone los pelos de punta es la emotiva balada "We call it love", en resumen un album a la altura de Heart o Witness.

From: Chad Date: December 31, 2006 at 1:07
A very good album that just happens to have a female lead singer. I do like the vocals (sorry Geoff) but I wish the guitars would have been turned up a bit more. There is some very good songs on this album and I do enjoy it. You do not need to like female vocals in hard rock to enjoy this album. But it helps.

From: Maxi Date: May 31, 2007 at 9:32
This is an Amazing melodic hard rock album...from the first track to the last it's 9.8/10!!!amazing vocals,great sound..when i hear the first track played on my CD player,i'm so amazed..holy shit..this mother fuckers sounds so damn great!!you must have this one!!! if you like a female singer like: lita ford, heart, vixen, lee aaron,skew siskin, etc..Laos is perfect!!! even my girlfriend:desy like it so much...Hail Laos!!!

From: ROBERT Date: June 13, 2007 at 10:50
Gudrun Laos!!! tengo tb por ai uno d demos d eya... del 92' y tb esta metida en el grupo: BAR-FLY y ese disco del 97': FIRST IMPRESSION Muy Guapa esta Mujer!! Temas a destacar: Why Is A Good Love - con ese sabor a lo Kiss!! y esa Voz desgarrada.. Jericho - Vaya Pedazo d Teclas!! We Called It Love - Mi Gran Favorita del Disco!! Long Shot - Con ese Riff d Guitarra a lo Bon Jovi (Clavao al Raise your Hands!!!) Higher Ground - Grandisimo Tema tb!! Como se nota ese sabor caracteristico del año 1990!!

From: shotgun messiah Date: July 21, 2007 at 3:04
Great AOR album that was recently re-released from MTM.It also contains three bonus tracks (more than a feeling-Boston cover,come tomorrow and love sweet love).

From: newscandi Date: August 18, 2007 at 16:44
The first song is hell . The rest is also powerful made hard rock (I wouldn't tell it AOR, just if you believe that AOR is what blows up your ears ) in the style of WITNESS and JOAL's 1st album. But we all know that. So I just tell you my rating of 89/100 and say thank you for a rerelease which is really worh it.

From: darobinson Date: October 30, 2007 at 18:19
This disc and the Saraya debut are simply amazing releases. Get them if you can. You will not be dissapointed!!!

From: Roxy Lipstikk Date: February 14, 2008 at 5:58
this is great album!!!! the best songs for me are I Want it and Jericho

From: Maxi Date: April 9, 2008 at 12:50
to: shotgun messiah..i think this album is more melodic hard rock than AOR..but glad to know that u like this one too..rock on!

From: lalo r.o.c.k. Date: August 11, 2008 at 13:37
Gran disco mezcla de Hard Rock melódico caso de I want It(descomunal comienzo!),Why is A good love,Straight to the top y otras más en plan AOR como Now that it´s over,Jericho,Heartbreak road,We called it love(mi favorita)medio tiempo con unas guitarras y teclados que te enganchan desde el comienzo de la canción y la voz de la bella Gudrun LAOS perfecta para el tema,los bonus de la reedicón por parte de MTM music son buenos también caso de ese cover de BOSTON More Than a feeling,clásico sonido...

From: rallen399 Date: December 20, 2009 at 17:50
This cd sounds great from all the reviews,I only have 1 song,I Want It, and it rocks but the ultimate female hard rock/melodic metal band is "Phantom Blue" check out Built To Perform, it's one of the best cds I've ever heard male or female.The whole band is female by the way.I currently waiting for my copy of We Want It to arrive,I hope the rest of the cd is as good as the 1st song.

From: metalmajo Date: June 7, 2010 at 21:57
absolute masterpiece,11 out of 10....get it

From: Pee Dee Date: January 13, 2011 at 4:36
Hands down, the best, most hook-laden, melodic female-fronted AOR CD of all time!!! This is NEVER gonna be topped! My fave is 'Jericho.' I've heard some of the demos which were going to be included in the follow-up and I must say, if you liked this one - you WOULDN'T have liked that one. The tracks are much more hard rock and raw, without the melodies and the finesse of the debut. 'We Want It' was a one shot deal. We're never going to see anything like this again!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 4, 2011 at 13:18
Top notch album and pretty easy to find on E-bay and Record Stores(especially in Europe)...enjoyable from head to toes and with a female vocalist(Gudrun Laos)that in certain parts(just certain parts) reminded me of Bonnie Tyler ...faves of mine "Jericho" & "Long Shot"...also standouts are "I Want It" that is a very good rocking track,"Why Is A Good Love","Now That It's Over" this one a solid AOR feel ballad,"Straight To The Top" catchy one along with "We Called It Love"..in general lines is pretty worthy...get it!!!.95/100

From: 123charpenay Date: November 22, 2011 at 15:47
i think that in 2004 geoff was very very sick.hope he find a good doctor.serioustly "awfull vocals" on this album?it is a joke.now in 2011 geoff listen one more time this absolute jewel.i recommand you the reedition on m t m classix with 3 fabulous bonus tracks and listen to the marvellous voice of miss grundun laos.i think in 2004 you have listen only the first track "i want it" on the choruse grundun force and raise her voice.this record is one of the more extraordinary female hard f m record with witness,perfect crime or darby mills among oters....

From: JapLance Date: January 5, 2012 at 5:08
Excellent rocker start with the three or four first songs, but then dwindles to "average" AOR, and the bonus tracks seems like they were recorded by another band with only the same singer. I'd keep the rockers and forget the rest (including the bonus tracks).

From: jfox66 Date: August 18, 2021 at 5:40
Gudrun Laos later changed her name to Aino Laos and is the vocalist on the 1997 CD First Impression by the German band Bar-Fly. https://www.discogs.com/Bar-Fly-First-Impression/release/7421849 Click the link for Aino Laos and you'll see that her alias is Gudrun Laos. The disc ain't bad at all! If yoy like The LAOs CD, give Bar-Fly a go.
