Schöne Platte für zwischendurch ! Gut zum relaxen,weil sehr eingängig. Janet hat auch ne angenehme Stimme ! 8\10

From: espo Date: April 1, 2003 at 18:01
Allison is a swiss female fronted AOR/hard rock act, generically describable as a heavy version of Heart. Standard and not original melodic hard rock, but Janet La Rose has a beautiful and full of fight voice. Another version of this album (with a different cover) contains one track more: the hit single “Dreams of Glory”. Worth buying for female vocalists lovers.

From: purrfect-kat Date: May 21, 2003 at 14:02
overrated garbage is what this is.

From: Sven Date: August 6, 2003 at 7:19
How can this be overrated when noone rates it ?oP Garbage however it is not. I must admit that, although not being very keen on female singers, I quite like this album. Decent songs, good musicians and the lady can sing! Nothing overwhelming, but well worth picking up. The version with the "hit single" (where was this a hit BTW?) is released on Music for Nations...

From: wendal09 Date: August 6, 2003 at 10:07
There is a reference to a harder version of Heart above. Can anybody tell me what other female vocalist this singer sounds similar to? Thanks.

From: doomy Date: October 10, 2003 at 6:28
Just listen to "sometimes" and then... ...you will undetstand... what a voice?

From: CC Date: October 26, 2003 at 22:08
Part Heart,part Doro............all good!

From: wendal09 Date: November 13, 2003 at 18:09
I thought this was quite good. The vocals are truly similar to Heart, with an accent of course. If you like this, check out the Spanish band Nexx. Excellent similar vocals and well produced edgy AOR. )

From: robert Date: November 13, 2003 at 18:32
No esta nada mal esta banda Suiza, y sobre todo la vocalista, no no esta nada mal la nena esta... algunos buenos temas, con gancho...

From: jessica96fish Date: March 2, 2004 at 17:24
this is a great slice of female rock.if your into lee aaron perfect crime saraya then this is for you.they also have two other cds or at least janet la rose sings on. wonderland is the other allison cd.and then there is angelheart.wild heart of allison.very good cd.17 songs.

From: Nanteau Date: April 25, 2004 at 16:02
Please tell me more about her new band ANGELHEART Jessica. It's more poppy, I heard. Are the melodies better as on this 'cos apart from the two ballads I'VE BEEN WAITING & ALL THE WAY TO HEAVEN I don't really like this one. They have another album one year earlier ,by the way, called IF EVER... Is this better than the other?? To Melodiker: Ich finde die Platte nicht eingängig genug, um im Melodicrock Sektor eine 8 zu geben --höchstens 4 !!

From: jessica96fish Date: June 18, 2004 at 14:14
the angelheart cd has some good melodic rock songs.i like it alot.their are some likeness to the allison cd.their are 17 tracks on the angelheart cd.worth getting in my oppinion.the other angelheart from what i've heard is not as good.if you want to talk more about this cd or rock.e mail me at.louise@winsor2207.freeserve.co.uk

From: Great Dane Date: November 28, 2004 at 7:02
This one hell of a good cd.

From: JS-SUPERHERO Date: January 26, 2005 at 1:53
Allison-One is by far one of the BEST female fronted cd's EVER!!! A definite harder version of HEART, with catchier songs!!! Janet LaRose is awesome on vocals. A definite must have for any female fronted music lover!!!

From: Niglin Date: May 1, 2005 at 19:17
Hmmm, just hit 'delete'. I really like female fronted AOR bands (check 'Witness'), so I was hopeful here. From the moment Janet opened her mouth I was saying f**k. A crappy accent and bad lyrics ruin this one, right from the get go. Too bad because her voice has some range and melody.

From: jessica96fish Date: May 2, 2005 at 9:36
hi niglin.if you like female stuff.try and find these gems.yankee heaven.infinite dreams.anything by one more time.harder to get hold of.but worth getting.aurora misslead heat paul godfrey band.and atomic angel.i have all of these and many more rare stuff.

From: SCANDI Date: July 23, 2005 at 19:47
Recently I listened to this one again. I didn't say one of the best female AOR's out there but quite near actually. Great voice of Janet too. However, I don't like this too much; it's a MUST for female AOR collector completists but I'm afraid to say: Not for me! "All the way to heaven" is a very sweet little ballad and "Smokin' track" is a great acoustic song.. but I'm not sure about the rest. Maybe this album is worth for "I've been waiting" alone. SUPERP ballad. Like HEART & PRIVATE LIFE.7/10

hi-from COSTARICA.me ha tomado 11 años en conseguir esta joya suiza y ORIGINAL y NUEVO y traido desde EUROPA y con la caratula original para que me sepa mas rico.esta banda suiza con una chica como cantante y un sonido muy similar a VIXEN,recuerdo que la primer vez que supe de este disco fue en un review de la revista española KERRANG en la seccion de discos importados de julio de 1994.de ahi me he tomado cierto interes en comprarlo,solo que en USA y CENTROAMERICA no existe el disco y nunca se

From: mauricio Date: December 18, 2005 at 13:24
llego a editar ahi como sucede con los grupos europeos.no obstante este es un buen disco muy melodico muy bien cuidado excelentemente realizado.solo escucha la apertura de LET YOUR HAIR DOWN y la chica que canta,es oir a JANET GARDNER claro esta chica tambien es rubia ademas que te sonara a SANDY SARAYA y hasta ANN WILSON para que tengan una idea como es.WITHOUT WOMAN-SOMETIMES-CRAZY-DANCING ON A LINE-DID I KNOW-SHADOW son otros de los buenos temas que tiene el album,la acustica SMOKING TRACK

From: mauricio Date: December 18, 2005 at 13:24
Y que decir de las 2 baladas que tiene este disco ALL THE WAY TO HEAVEN co-escrita con JEFF PARIS y la mejor la mas bella de I VE BEEN WAITING con un estilo muy sentimental muy a lo VIXEN y co-escrita por JOEY BALIN(WARLOCK-AXXIS-DORO-TREAT)en conclusion es un album muy recomendable y hasta incluso muy apasionado.y la banda tiene un buen nivel,nada que envidiar a las demas bandas de rock con una mujer a la voz solista.la diferencia es que este es un disco de aor,lo cual hace llamar mas atencion

From: mauricio Date: December 18, 2005 at 13:25
asi que a comprar este ONE,no importa si tiene la portada diferente pero hay que tenerlo,hace unos dias lo vi en EBAY y solo habian 23 cabrones detras del album justo cuando tengo mi propio album en mis manos.no lo pienses mucho es muy essencial si te gustan mucho VIXEN y si no esta en tu pais mandalo a traer como yo lo hice.y en mi coleccion estan KROKUS-GOTTHARD-CHINA-SATROX-ALLISON-SHAKRA..como lo mejor del rock melodico suizo y es un poquito dificil de conseguir.... maujobarksott@hotmail.com

From: Geoff Date: March 8, 2006 at 21:23
I really like this CD. Vocally, reminds me of Anne Wilson (?) from Heart, with an accent. Musically the album is superb, with numerous highlights. 'Did I know' is great, as is 'Without a woman', 'Sometimes'... the list goes on. A couple of fillers, but overall one of the best female fronted melodic rock albums I've heard. Definately recommended for fans of Witness etc.

From: metalguf Date: April 7, 2006 at 12:59
I'm agree with Nanteau. Only "I've Been Waiting" and "All the Way to Heaven" is good.

From: metalguf Date: April 7, 2006 at 13:00
I mean "Are good" It was a mistake.

From: juan carlos Date: May 16, 2007 at 15:30
HardRock melódico ok con una excelente producción que ayuda mucho al disco. Grupo mas emparentados con los Witness, mínimos toques a lo Ann Wilson de Janet (un tanto acentuado su voz). No me parece un clásico ni mucho menos. Mi favorita es "I've Been Waiting" linda semi-balada, "All the Way to Heaven" es la otra balada que por contra no me gusta del todo. Tiene sus momentos el disco como en "Sometimes", el buen solo en "Without a Woman" o los buenos coros y el gran final en "Did i Know". 8/10

From: Lovedrive Date: June 28, 2007 at 11:32
Uno de los mejores discos con chica al frente que he escuchado. Como dicen por arriba, buena producción, excelente voz, y lo importante buenos temas, Without a woman, Dancing on a line. Recomendado!

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: May 18, 2008 at 13:19
OK 80/100 soft HARD ROCK Nothing exceptionnal but well crafted and a good voice !

From: z4roxx Date: April 18, 2009 at 11:12
Great disc,and sometimes also good female voice!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 22, 2010 at 21:33
Agree with YNGWIEVIKING completely!!!this band can be similar to the ones we know,either band or vocalist (Vixen,Alannah Myles,Harlow and so on...),"Let Your Hair Down" a song that rocks,"Without A Woman" is pretty enjoyable,"Sometimes" has the AOR spirit around,"I've Been Waiting" the typical nice ballad sang by a woman ,"Shadows" rocks pleasantly,"Dancing On A Line" ,"All The Way To Heaven" is another pretty nice ballad,"Did I Know" is a personal fave,"Crazy" catchy...well all this said,is up to you 2 give it a try!.88/100

From: 123charpenay Date: September 3, 2016 at 16:48
this cd is a real raritie but this record don t hooked me.not a bad cd it s a very decent female fronted melodic rock but in this kind of music there is one hundred other realises better.
