Described as the German Toto at the time, not a bad comparison (although no way as good musicians as them), this is a great melodic rock/ west coastish disc. Extasy is a superb opening track, and all the other tracks are strong enough to keep the interest for the full 45 minutes. Excellent album

From: ROB GARCIA Date: January 18, 2003 at 17:28
very good high-tech aor similar to pseudo echo although i think this is much better

From: MelodicMan Date: May 20, 2003 at 9:08
Members from the great band Tokyo. JOJO is a fantastic record. This band became Roko.

From: TIM (2) Date: July 2, 2004 at 13:11
This is very lightweight, and is no more than light pop/rock. "Woman's Touch" I seem to remember being the "hit" single from this. Not that dissimilar to the 2nd Ya Ya album in terms of style, but ROKO fans will find it all a little too lighweight. That said, there's hardly a filler track and is a very consistent disc. Pretty rare now I notice, and probably not worth big bucks, but if you see it reasonably priced...

From: jessica96fish Date: July 8, 2004 at 12:37
very cool cd.on the light side it maybe.but some great tracks on here.well worth picking up.the guitar player went on to form valet parking.which is pure westcoast like 2am.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 27, 2004 at 1:36
OTRO DECENTE ALBUM DE AOR, NADA MAS, UN AOR SUAVE QUE PODRIA HABER SALIDO EN LA PRIMERA MITAD DE LOS 80.

From: z4roxx Date: January 14, 2005 at 17:59
Really a gem,ultra awesome aor gem!Maybe one of the best aor release from Germany!What a musicians,sounds and prodution!Maybe also for this thing that Roko will do after this one a masterpiece as Roko/s.t.,tha's pure class melody!!!11/10

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: January 29, 2005 at 5:38
Ciertamente curioso el sonido de estos alemanes,es como si hubiesen metido en una batidora grupos como Toto,Chicago o Michael Learns To Rock y luego le hubiesen añadido bandas paisanas suyas q destacan sobretodo por el tratamiento tan peculiar y llamativo con el q dotan a los teclados:Craaft,Lake,Dominoe,Karo...A mi me parece un disco de BASTANTE CALIDAD repleto de interesantes composiciones y estribillos pegadizos,pienso q si sois capaces de asimilar el rollo q llevan os gustará este disco.

From: rick kerch Date: February 9, 2005 at 21:04
I agree with you champion a1 but i think this band for the media didn't fix at all.Maybe they were called "TOO MUCH POPPY SOUND TO MY METAL EARS" and they change attitude.Roko after this band put on a band called his name and i think it was worst for him.I saw them live supporting Magnun back in the 80's and the people's reaction was as if they were still jojo.Anyway i haven't heard of them anymore.

From: TONI MALLORCA Date: March 9, 2005 at 7:36
ESTA BANDA FUE TELONERA DE ROBERT PALMER EN 1988,LA HE DESCUBIRTO HACE POCO Y YA FORMA PARTE DE MIS FAVORITOS DE LOS 80´S JUNTO A I-TEN, AVIATOR,ETC..

From: MarkyB Date: August 3, 2005 at 9:05
Yeah! Great and well produced AOR/PopRock album from Germany. Check "Ecstacy" and "Diana" to get an impression of that rare CD. Also note the Porcaro-like work of #1 german session drummer Curt Cress (played drum tracks on Saga´s `only time will tell´). Good Album but not essential.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: July 31, 2006 at 19:34
Muy bonito el albun, tipico 80's quizas algo flojito pero muy bueno para los amantes de AOR ...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 12, 2007 at 23:01
The first will be the last...I don't think so,this album is GREAT!!!.Shamely they recorded only this album and is a very difficult one to find.I bought it in vinyl when it first came out.JOJO took the title of this song too seriously...bad.

From: 80's Hard Rock Date: January 22, 2008 at 11:39
This is a cd which has some good tunes on it and a sure winner, that track is the opener Extasy... What a great track that is. Worth the price only thanks to that song Pretty average disc if u don't count the two first songs.

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: February 6, 2008 at 20:29
I think this album is something that any Westcoast Hi Tech AOR lover should not miss. The style goes in a TOTO, TIME GALLERY, DOMINOE and LA MARCA direction. Certainly some songs lack of efectivy and strength but the album has a lot of great moments like the awesome "Extasy", "I Can Wait" and "Hold Back The Night... Absolutely i recommend this album

From: aorta Date: February 15, 2008 at 14:17
The sevent song is amazing.worth to buy for it.

From: KurtmanJP Date: May 19, 2008 at 22:19
"Extasy" and "Hold Back The Night" are two of my biggest guilty pleasures in AOR. And I'm generally not a huge fan of hi-tech AOR through there is some outstanding lite AOR and west coast out there. Do long as it doesn't get as sappy as Chicago I like it.

From: newscandi Date: May 25, 2008 at 16:22
My favourites are EXTASY, DIANA and the beautiful ballad SO LONG. Good AOR with hi tech influences like KARO, but I don't suggest it's worth the big money they demand for it. Essential for the normal price though. 78/100

From: halfordhughes Date: November 11, 2011 at 21:15
very good aor! together with roko's first album...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 15, 2012 at 22:46
Wow i'm listening again to this highly recommended Hi-Tech AOR album...killer stuff by all means!!!...the best cuts for me definitively are "The First Will Be The Last","Runnin' Through The Night" & "Diana"...then the rest of the tracks are simply outstanding ones too(the ballads are really nice indeed)...there is a single called "We Scandalize" of 1989 where you have a female singer(Linda Rocco)singing the 2 tracks that bring(the other track is a remake of "Hold Back The Night")and is good but not as good as this 1988 release(i mean in song terms,even though is a single,the remake doesn't count and the one sang by Linda is good but not to kill for IMO)...if u don't have this album then rush it out!!!...98/100 ( my definitive rating)....

From: hair metal again Date: October 17, 2012 at 10:58
very good release by JOJO back in 89 and this was a pleasant surprise !polished sound ,excellent musicianship ,good songs and nothing German in it!"extasy","woman s touch","so long" and "water to wine" the highlights of an enjoyable release!

From: yamaha94 Date: October 26, 2012 at 21:41
I can't wait is an excellent track. Gets you moving. Some tracks are in need of some polishing. But the track above is clearly a gem on this album. Good pickup. 80/100
