|This album is fucking excellent, it sounds very late 80's and it's good to hear this style of music being released these days. Top notch performance!!

|One of the better offerings from Escape Records, this band hearkens back to the melodic hard rock sound of the late 80s, with sharp guitars, catchy hooks, memorable choruses, and lots of backing vocals. Not the most original or outstanding album of 2001, but worth picking up if you're a fan of this musical genre. The CD may not whisk you off to paradise, but there's a good chance it will light a fire in your stereo.

|Pedazo de disco, gracias por recomendarmelo a mi amigo Dani. Es puro Hard AOR con temas algo más melódicos y los dos ultimos temas del disco algo mas hard rockeros. Es una mezcla de Idle Cure (voz y composición del tough love)+Def Leppard(temas pegadizos, rapidos, llenos de coros y brutales)para mi entender. Pedazo de disco que casi me pasa desapercibido. No lo dejeis escapar.

|Great album, especially if your into Canadian Melodic rock from the late 80's i.e Loverboy, which this is very similar to , Probably because Doug Johnson (Loverboy Keyboardist) is the main man involved here, along with George Criston from Kick Axe. As far as i know this was recorded a while back and is another one of those releases getting a release way after it was recorded (Network, Vital Signs, Under Fire) . At least the excellent Escape label has issued it as it is a first class release.

|the first song that got stuck in my head is the song' all work and no play, going on a rockaday...' i knew this wasn't 2001 sounding...more mid nineties or something..and although there are much better songs on this album (love surgery;love is..etc etc)once you hear 'rockaday' the chorus won't leave your head anymore..an excellent release.. we want more from where this album came from... email@example.com

|yep have to agree. very nice album indeed. great AOR. if you need some songs email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

|This is hard hitting melodic AOR very close to Loverboy territory. Strong production and lots of flag waving anthems, this one's a winner. The result is a powerful blend of AOR with hard rock sensibilities, which can best be described as Hard AOR.

|I found this one the other day and totally forgot I had it......This however should not be an indication of the music found within which is pretty fantastic. It's a great pity they only managed one album as what you get is class melodic/hard rock and is full of hooks straight from the off with opener Paradise. For some reason when I was playing it the other day Wall of Silence came up as a bit of a reference point sound wise...maybe it was fanciful thinking on my part...but either way grab this.

|Love Surgery ! Killer song from a great album. Late 80's sounding but always refreshing. Such a shame they only released the one album. Higly recommanded 89/100.

|Surprised about the few comments on this overlooked melodic rock gem. Smoking cd.Huge keyboords and amazing use of the guitar. Top notch production. Very crisp and clear. Sound of their own. Like Oliver wrote already. Truly all killers, no fillers. 90/100
||Date: June 22, 2011 at 13:40|
|Great to hear George Christon's still got it after all these years!

|excellent commercial hard rock music that was recorded back in the day ,but it was released many years later!big choruses,many hooks,massive backing vocals and big guitars like we love it is offered here and to be honest didnt expect it to be that rockin.'you have the touch",'going down to sin city",love surgery " are the highlights of this great indie from the Canadian scene
