Hé, hé, hé, this is a great AOR record, ladies and gentlemen ! Mr. Ballard offers always quality and I think this is maybe his finest moment ! High class AOR ! Check it out pronto !

Yes this Is really a AOR album and It's really good but not In the same class as his first...but worth to have In your collection.

Mega follow up to the mega S/T album. Very similar in style, so if you liked the s/t you will like this. Renaissance released this as a 2fer with the s/t, which adds up to 75+ minutes of superb AOR.

This is it!..the CD you've always wanted to hear from Russ Ballard!..This really needs to be re-released in the U.S.!!Even better then the first CD!.."The Omen" rocks!..and the title track is pure Ballard!..Such a great talent!!..Where are you Russ!

From: AORmaniac Date: January 30, 2005 at 23:45
This is agreat AOR album!!!! Russ is one of the best songwriters inthe world and always delivers the best rock music!!! Read on a Casanova interview at: www.grande-rock.com that he will be back with a new release this year or the next one... let's cross our fingers on that!!!! Russ come back we all need you!!!!

As I wrote before : this is indeed great AOR !

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 30, 2005 at 21:00
Another Great Album from Ballard, claro que si otro gran trabajo de AOR de Russ con grandes cortes como Once A Rebel, Dream On, The Fire Still Burns, Your Time Is Gonna Come... este como su anterior album son 2 Grandes discos de AOR imprescindibles en toda coleccion de un verdadero amante del AOR. a ver quien me datea sobre el tema Dream On por ser del 85 este disco sin duda es de Ballard pero King Kobra en el Thrill tambien lo toca, es una version de Russ o que, agradezco el dato.

Excellent work by Russ Ballard, this is a great example of good artist, great compositions and musicianship! Uno de los mejores compositores de los 70 y 80´s, ayudó a muchos grupos de rock a componer para sonar fuerte en las estaciones de Radio de USA, (Since You´ve Been Gone, I Surrender). King Kobra hace el cover de "Dream On" en el 86 en su segundo álbum. Si lo puedes conseguir no te lo pierdas!

otro gran album un poco mas lento que el anterior pero lleno de melodia 8/10
