This is in the same vein as their amazing debut album. Great melodies,catchy choruses-excellent vocals and great musicians.The best melodic rock album of the year so far! 10 out of 10.

From: freddy de keyze Date: June 9, 2003 at 19:39
Can't believe my ears ! Is that really the same band that gave us the excellent 'After the fire' ? This is crap, I'm sorry to say this. Boy, how is it possible to release such nonsense after such a great debut ? What a disappointment !!!! And dear Janni, do we talk about the same record ? !

From: freddy de keyze Date: June 10, 2003 at 20:14
Sorry, 'Where you gonna run' was their stunning debut, not 'After the fire' !!! But both are very great records, and this one not at all !!!

The band's performance on "Automatic" is good - it's just the combination of the vocals and the lack of hooks that take away from what could be a very enjoyable melodic rock album. There isn't anything truly different from the last release, which had the same problems, therefore there is nothing to suggest that this will be a hit amongst melodic music fans already flush with a great range of other releases.

From: Hrudet Date: July 2, 2003 at 20:48
The sound of the album is impressive - I think the production and mix are the best I have heard from the guys, but the songs sound far too familiar, running into each other without any major hooks to help the listener differentiate from each one. The slower tracks are where things pick up - the ballads "If Your Lucky" and "What It Takes" a highlight. It's here that John sings in a better more suited tone and sounds great for it.

From: Rockhead Date: July 22, 2004 at 5:47
This is actually the bands 3rd release (not 2nd as widely commented) the debut was called WHERE YOU GONNA RUN and is the best of the 3.

From: Andrea Date: July 22, 2004 at 12:51
Sorry, I don't agree with previous comments. To me it's a pretty average album, below as quality from their first and best album "WAYGR".

From: metalmastermusic Date: June 11, 2007 at 14:00
Having never heard the first album I cannot comapare them but this is a solid effort. It does not however have any "killer" songs on this album. It is extremely melodic if you like that sort of Hugo/Melodica type sound. No comparison beyond the type of music that they play. Not bad just nothing overwhelming that will make a necessary disc for your collection. If your just looking to kick back a relax this disc might work for you. 7.5/10

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: October 31, 2007 at 14:08
Vaya vaya que buen album con sus toques de AOR actual, esta bonito el disco escuchar "Another Measure","Automatic" temas muy agradables que claro con ese aire actual pero en si es un buen album y tienes que tenerlo se daran con una sorpresa muy buena a comentar mas de este buen disco se los recomiendo a los amantes del buen rock!!!! Rafo ya tengo las fotos jaja

From: metalmastermusic Date: March 10, 2008 at 15:04
Thought this one would be better but I was very dissapointed. It has about 3 good songs on the disc and the rest are pretty much just filler material. It's to bad as they have some glimmers of what it takes to put out a great album but need to get back to the songwriting table and come up with 10 good songs. 75/100
