Why is here no comment??? 'ROCK ME INTO HEAVEN' sounds as great, it must be a great tune! By the way someone said this would be the best ERIKA Album, so why don't leave an praise??? Anyway, I want COLD WINTER NIGHT the most, who can sell me (cornelius_groth@yahoo.de)???

From: rune Date: January 28, 2004 at 13:41
hi scandi i agree with you, the second album from ERIKA is probably the best one,just check out songs like-in the arms of a stranger,rock me into heaven,shadows and rain-fantastic stuff.....

From: Mauro Date: November 10, 2004 at 11:16
Hi, in my opinion this album it's a great pop rock album. Some songs sounds well. The first is one my favourite. Sorry for my english but i'm italian

From: Nanteau Date: January 22, 2005 at 17:21
In February it will be re-released by Munich label MTM .. I'm curious if it rocks a little more than her 1st & 3rd ones !?

From: z4roxx Date: January 22, 2005 at 18:12
Nanteau,you'll be not very happy,this one not rocks like the debut for nothin'!!It's amazing pure aor work,only the first one rocks much more than the others 2...The first one is the best,IMO.

From: Geoff Date: February 28, 2005 at 19:43
I have to admit this is pretty damn good. If you like your European / Scandi melodic rock / AOR you'll enjoy this. Some very enjoyable tracks. Reminds me a little of a female fronted Sha-Boom. Track 2 is great and I think I liked 'Easy come easy go' too. For fans of Evenrude too.

From: z4roxx Date: February 28, 2005 at 21:25
Same kind of voice of Tone Norum but she's great stuff,awesome cd,IMO.Maybe her first is the best but this one is near to it.Stunning production with a lot of memorable tunes and emotional moments indeed.If she'd have a little more energy in singin'this should be a masterpiece(like the debut,too).I love Erika,not only how her looks like!ahahaha!!

From: Nanteau Date: March 10, 2005 at 14:45
I don't like this one too much.. even though it's very near to the first one I guess. But every song sounds the same and ERIKA's voice is very poppy so she doesn't fit into the music which is a bit more rocky. So I prefer the 3rd release 'cos there BOTH elements are poppy and harmonize a lot better. I expected more of her first & second release, however always worth a listen if you don't have to spend the big cash before it was re-released. Some good songs which are already mentioned though !!

From: Nanteau Date: March 10, 2005 at 14:48
Hello z4roxx !! -- Exactly that I meant above: She needs 'more energy in singin'' .. then it bould be a 8,8/10

From: frank portugal Date: March 13, 2005 at 9:05
nice album aor 9/10

From: z4roxx Date: December 21, 2006 at 13:40
Another great cd by Erika,maybe a little inferior than the debut but gooder in sounds/production.

From: Liger Date: June 5, 2007 at 10:36
Anyone knows about her 4th realese 'Planet X'. Is it good?

From: newscandi Date: June 7, 2007 at 11:45
I don't know 'PLANET X', but heard it's absolutely the worst album and quite different in style (I guess kinda technopop --but dunno..). Funny thing is that the one we're talking about is the rarest resp. most expensive together with 'LADY LUCK' which is her best.

From: Liger Date: June 8, 2007 at 7:17
Newscandi, thanks for your answer. Planet X seems to be pretty unknown...i don't find any review about it on the net.
