I just recently got this cd and it's great. I've seen it before but never gave it much thought.

From: TIM Date: February 21, 2003 at 5:16
I forgot to rate it when I submitted it- that's why the rating is low.

From: TIM Date: February 21, 2003 at 5:18
Actually, it appears someone else beat me to it.

From: Blue Tequila Date: February 21, 2003 at 7:40
I remember the video for "God Promised a Paradise" played on Headbangers Ball quite a bit back in the good ol' days. Awesome song. the rest of the album is ok. I had this on tape but have had no luck finding it on CD.

From: TIM Date: February 21, 2003 at 15:29
You must not have access to Ebay. It's quite easy to get. If you'd like me to get it for you email me at: rio1harris@aol.com.

From: Shoemaker Date: February 21, 2003 at 17:17
This is the best Masi Album. God promised.., Undercover..and Hangin on are very good 80ies Hardrocksongs. On Vocals was one of the coolest singer ever, David Fefolt ex, Hawk and Valhalla. He is brillant, where is he now???

From: James Date: February 21, 2003 at 21:54
God Promised A Paradise is a great song but the rest of the album didn't do much for me. I paid $1.99 and turned around and traded it back in a month later.

From: Blue Tequila Date: March 16, 2003 at 0:20
Hey Tim thanks for the suggestion--so I went out and just got this on Ebay. It's been almost 8 years since I last heard this. Still sounds damn good!

From: b casarin MEX Date: March 21, 2003 at 23:11
a excepcion del primer track, nada extraordinario cae un poco dentro de lo comun 78/100

From: tomcat Date: May 18, 2003 at 8:12

From: tomcat Date: June 29, 2003 at 16:38

From: lance1 Date: December 14, 2003 at 2:05
a must have metal cd.god promised a paradise slams.the video got heavy rotation on headbangers ball.i was blown away.alex masi can shred like warren demartini and george lynch.very good songs here.

From: honey Date: January 17, 2004 at 0:51
I'll never forget seeing their video, the singer David Fefolt was a total babe! What is he doing now?

From: Metal T Date: February 4, 2004 at 7:42
Alex Masi can shred !--This guy unfortunately got the "Yngwie Clone" gloss,hardly commanding any respect outside guitar circles.He is definitely underrated as a songwriter as evidenced on 'Downtown Dreamers'.On the songs "Paradise","Hellraiser" and the kick-ass "Thunder & Lightning" he proves he's d*mn worthy !---This is the probably the most 'Band Oriented' release from Masi',with alot of his records being instrumental-esque.Love the M.Diglio(XYZ)like tone on Thunder'.Pretty d*amn nice

From: Vinnie T. Date: June 10, 2004 at 22:09
Alex Masi should have stuck to recording more commercial albums like "Downtown Dreamers". he's a good player but the instrumental thing can get boring. this album rocked and should have been much bigger. you can't beat the combination of great songs,great guitar, and great vocals!

From: Dean Date: August 1, 2004 at 5:15
Once the chorus of "God promised a paradise" gets stuck in your head it is impossible to get it out. Decent album -"God.." was very cool.

From: MV Date: January 12, 2005 at 9:47
Hey u guys, could any1 send to me "God Promised A Paradise" in mp3 format please? machina_veritas@tlen.pl

From: Date: January 22, 2005 at 7:36
THE VERY BEST ALBUM Alex sei grandissimo con la chitarra hard rock melodico in stile con i mitici anni 80 ciao da Luca MESTRE VENEZIA PS Eri MITICO anche con i mitici DARK LORD del grande STATE OF ROCK BY

From: Henrykane Date: May 28, 2006 at 13:04
HEY you, are you crazy or what?; so few comments on this wonderful album? I don't understand why. This one has got it all: superb production (Howard Benson), superb Guitar Hero with balls, superb lead singer with attitude, looks and a very Nadir D'Priest-RJ Dio voice style and great catchy songs in the vein of Ratt,Dokken and London. PERFECT.10/10.

From: Eva Galli Date: August 22, 2009 at 15:34
Not much to say, a completely 80's GEM

From: z4roxx Date: August 23, 2009 at 8:47
Hi Eva,this is your true name?Are you from Italy?Yes this is a gem!!!Bye!

From: metalhead4life Date: August 23, 2009 at 11:55
Yeah, very good Glam Rock from 1988. 80/100 David Fefolt was also the singer for the band Hawk - S/T album from 1984/1985 which is very good traditional metal from the best era for rock/metal (the mid-80's).

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 23, 2010 at 21:58
This album have always caught my attention ever since it was released...just got it recently and well...is enjoyable,yes,but i expected more...anyway the highlights were "God Promised A Paradise" this one is just a good song,not outstanding (for me at least guys),"Thunder & Lightning" solid,"Movin' On" yeah this one is pretty ,"Foggy Day In Hollywood" is a well solid instrumental song,good skilled guitar work courtesy of the man himself,Alex,"Hellraiser" rocks,"State Of Rock" catchy & "I Hear You Calling" is another shot,this one i really liked it!!!....as i said,enjoyable....85/100

From: Mark Italy Date: April 30, 2012 at 6:27
Masi is George Lynch of Italy... Hard'n'Heavy superior, school of Scorpions, Dokken and Ratt!!! 100...
