Super album,které nemá jedinou chybu!AOR jak má být! Škoda jen,že to je nìjak divnì tiše namixované.SCORE 10!!!!

From: Christian Date: November 14, 2002 at 12:57
Eines der besten CDs die Melodic Rock Fans brauchen.

From: Carsten Date: November 30, 2002 at 0:12
The digipak re-issue is very nice and there are some great songs on this album. The problem I find with this cd is repetition. Too many songs just go through the motions and repeat the freaking chorus way too many times! But I don't want to be overly critical because I do like this album. Find it cheap if you can and stay away from the rediculous price some vendors still want for the original!!

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: December 16, 2002 at 10:49
Esto es puro Hard Rock Melódico super contundente,seria la versión ochentera de Frontline en su primer disco,aunque tambien me suenan a grupos como Tobruk en las partes de teclados.Decir que cuentan con muy buenos temas pero...ojo hay un gran lunar en el disco y no es otra cosa que la producción,BASTANTE LIMITADA,por no decir otra cosa.UN DISCO DE BUEN NIVEL que con una producción en condiciones llamaría bastante la atención.

From: Infinity Date: January 1, 2004 at 15:54
one of the most boring melodic-album...keep your hands away of it!!!

From: melodicrockoz Date: January 8, 2004 at 20:51
why wasn't there more demos released, there's i think 2 more demos from the original aidean demos cassette that didn't make it to the reissue, i think i hard that aidean have enough songs for another album so i hope that will be released and with the missing demo songs, i'd love tosee an aidean anthology of demos andlive and uneleased completed tracks, i love the band ! from australia melodicrockoz@yahoo.com

From: Rycheage Date: March 9, 2004 at 0:18
The songs are well produced, catchy and full to the brim with both guitar crunch and keyboard blasts. Coming at you from the Bonfire and Pretty Maids school of riffs, they are the typical European melodic rock band, with a big sound and a heavy handed approach.

From: rocky Date: March 23, 2004 at 10:28
this could have been close to a 10, but the singer is pulling them back to a 5. he has such a nasal sound to his voice.....otherwise musically they are good...get a new singer and these guys will be amongst the major league bands.

From: Geoff Date: May 24, 2004 at 22:06
I must say I'm a little surprised at the comments here. Although a huge fan of melodic hard rock, I HATE keyboards used in large doses. This CD is full of keyboards, but I still love it! It's such a great CD. As I say, there are a little too many keyboards for my normal liking, but the songs are just so great, very catchy with massive hooks! Excellent CD and highly recommended!

From: ? Date: October 12, 2004 at 13:57
Very surprising comments indeed. A great CD,in-your-face 80s AOR with keys like Tobruk,Aviator.

From: z4roxx Date: January 19, 2005 at 21:28
Maybe in this band there are 10 keyboards??ahahahaha!!But the band is very good with catchy tunes!It's difficult to find releases with more keyboards like this one!9/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 10, 2005 at 0:54
GREAT!!! KILLER!!! AWESOME!!! Melodic Hard/AOR album, uno de los mejores albums Alemanes sin duda, una JOYA que tiene DESCOMUNALES temas como Children of the Night(My Favorite, Rock Melodico/AOR en el nivel mas alto, con esa atmosfera misteriosa y legendaria), Livin Lovin Losin, Promises, Rocks You Up, Fell in Love Again, Diana... solo cabe agregar una palabra IMPRESCINDIBLE!!! Albums asi llenos de Magia y Misterio son los que todo coleccionista y amante del mejor Rock buscan.

From: SangreAzulForever Date: June 28, 2006 at 10:22
Vaya pedazo de disco sacaron estos alemanes en el 88, un año antes de el año dorado del hard/aor. Grandes temas, buenas guitarras y estribillos y teclados pegadizos y detallistas. Por otra parte, tiene defectos que son imperdonables. A ver, llamamiento a los señores productores: la batería parece de juguete, la producción en general es mala, y como es mala, el cantante que sin ser un lumbreras tiene una voz original le joden todas las canciones. 8.5/10; tendría un 10... pero la producción

From: Melodiker Date: July 31, 2006 at 10:12
Not the best Album,but some good songs.The Sound of the CD is awful.

From: SangreAzulForever Date: November 6, 2006 at 18:43
Now I say it in English: this was a fantastic album full of magic and strange atmospheres, from the great "Promises", cutting into "Children of the Night" (timeless song) and ending with "Do you Call Again". The singer reminds me to Heavy Pettin´s singer a lot, because he´s got some good vocal hooks that prints through each piece some mysterious magical touch that surrounds the music as well as the great keyboard work executed. The great drawback is the horrible production and the drums.

From: juan carlos Date: February 15, 2007 at 10:55
La producción mala/regular, la voz un tanto aniñada por momentos pero muy aceptable para mí. Despues de esto todo magnífico. Full teclados y son lo mas grandioso del disco. Mi favorita es sin dudas "Livin Lovin Losin", luego "Fell in Love Again" (ese solo.. sniff ) y así casi todas.. Hay mucha mágia en el disco y eso amarga pues el grupo debió tener mejor futuro, una pena realmente. El medley bien bueno, cachondo. "Nighttime" gran tema. Demos de colección. Gran grupo, una pena. 8.5/10

From: kipvanpearcy Date: September 14, 2007 at 13:11
Very good CD, the choruses are absolutely great, but man, did these guys love keyboards! You can barely hear other instruments with all these keys going on. Still a solid, very melodic release. Production is a bit dated though.

From: lalorock Date: February 4, 2008 at 13:10
Me parece un gran albúm lleno de teclados y ganchos guitarreros maravillosos,la voz del cantante se parece al cantante de HEAVY PETTIN´,los temas son impactantes desde la 1era escuchada como un golpe justo entre tus ojos,Promises,Rocks you up,Children of the night,Diana,Do you call Again,todas de gran calidad y esa power ballad Feel in love Again(grandiosa!),los demos Nighttime buena tambien,grandioso album,la producción? dicen los expertos es mala,creo que habiendo calidad el resto no importa.

From: Delbert Date: February 4, 2008 at 14:31
Euro melodic metal laced with sharp keyboards, strong guitars, and passionate vocals. Contains elements of SKAGARACK, TREAT, PAGANINI and WINTER'S REIGN. An absolute must have for every CD collection. And, Geoff.....I'm just the opposite. Those keyboards pull my chain and drag me off to music "wonderland"!!!!

From: shoemaker Date: April 7, 2010 at 10:33
Good melodicrock here!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 16, 2010 at 20:20
Pretty good album!.....the band only recorded this album and what a shame 'cause it was a good act......the album starts with a good solid track "Promises","Tokyo" is a high peak in here,"Rocks You Up" apart from rock you it has a catchy chorus and definetely a highlight,"Fell In Love Again" is a strong ballad,"Livin' Lovin'Losin'" is AOR,"Children Of The Night" seems 2 be their "song",quite good indeed.."Diana" & "Do You call Again" are both faves,"Aidean Medley" is a crazy song,quite a filler honestly..about the bonus tracks "Night Time" is just a demo song and the other just remixes,acceptable but really fillers,that could be the low peak in here...Steve Lydakis' voice is like a mix of Hamie(Heavy Pettin),Michael Flexig(Zeno) and Bernie Kolbe (ex Domain)...buy and find out by yourselves dudes!.88/100

From: Delbert Date: June 19, 2010 at 20:47
Rick Kerch Vzla, the band did record an earlier release titled "Rocks You Up" in 1987. One of the most obscure titles around that most collectors have no clue about. I agree with most of your other comments on this album. It is definitely Euro melodic metal laced with sharp keyboards, strong guitars, and passionate vocals. I hear elements of SKAGARACK, TREAT, PAGANINI and WINTER'S REIGN in their sound.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 19, 2010 at 21:15
Thanks a lot for that extra info Delbert!!!...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 19, 2010 at 23:50
Hi guys, of course "Rocks You Up" is a pretty good EP (5 tracks) "Moments Of A Heartbeat, Bullet In The Bone, Promises(with a different style)" are Great MHR/Style songs, not my kind of singers(voice) but the style is Super, i have another Unreleased/Demos with great songs & 1 rare video concert of them, we love this kind of style!

From: aor-boy Date: September 4, 2010 at 4:21
I love this Album. The sound & atmosfare in this album screams out AOR HEAVEN. Just listen to the ballad "Fell in Love Again" & you get the point. 6/10

From: happy2849 Date: December 6, 2010 at 12:12
I've got the 2000 remastered, re-issue, in digipak, with the 3 bonus tracks. Don't know how the original sounded but this is pretty nice. If you like lots of keys it may be what you are looking for.

From: heavylethal Date: February 1, 2011 at 21:33
"Livin Lovin Losin" The Best Song In This Album !!!

From: hair metal again Date: April 25, 2014 at 8:58
excellent release by AIDEAN in the late 80s when the explosion of the hair metal movement was on!their sound is well balanced between guitars and keys and their strong point are the passionate vocals of Steve Lydakis and the catchy songs they wrote !all the songs are great and especially "fell in love again","livin lovin losin","do you call again" and "children of the night"!i suggest you buy immediately that great slice of German hard rock music!

From: titothetitan Date: January 31, 2018 at 12:36
One of my favourites AOR albums of all-time! There's a Dvd bootleg circling among the fans, "Hard n' Heavy Live 1989".

From: 123charpenay Date: January 31, 2018 at 13:49
for one time i m not agree with my brazilian friend tito.this record sound old.i ve nothing against the keyboards,i love it ,but here it s too much.but the main problem is the voice of the singer.he sing with his nose,his stamp of voice reminds me michael flexig (zeno) i hate this kind of voice.sorry not for me.

From: titothetitan Date: May 16, 2018 at 16:18
