Existing comments about this CD

From: ROB GARCIA Date: April 12, 2004 at 9:40
niagara's debut stands as one of the best aor/hard rock albums to come out of spain period!.i think this album could be considered a milestone in the spanish aor circuit as this album has opened many doors in europe for other acts to follow.stylewise they could be described as bombastic melodic rock akin to europe(out of this world era).tony cuevas proves to be a commendable vocalist with no trace of an accent in here.production's not brilliant but does the job in this case.good one indeed!!.

From: Rene Date: April 14, 2004 at 17:37
yesssssss, you are right Rob. This is my favorite spanish Melodic hard rock album ever. In my opinion far better then SANGRE AZUL records. I love this album so much. All the songs are just increible. Any hard rock fan from the 80s will love this album. It came out on vinyl all around europe. On cd its a little hard to find today.

From: livinlifelikeaf Date: April 18, 2004 at 15:59
I jsut wanted to add my two pennies worth and say that i had an old vinyl copy of a Niagera lp which wasnt this one but before it. I just wanted to see if anyone had any info on it and if its available on cd. For the record i thought they were a cool band it was always on the death deck along with my dan reed lp and as i remember it was a cracking debut chocka full of hooks and neat little melodies and a sign of things to come. mail me on martianmcfry@hotmail.com

Gran disco que nos dejo este grupo, muy buenas canciones, una pena la produccion , aunque sin ser mala creo que se podria mejorar un poco, pero nada que envidiar a grupos extranjeros por los que opinamos criticas muy buenas y nos olvidamos de este gran disco , temas impresionantes TAKE MY HAND, YOU BELONG TO ME, WALKING en definitiva un disco de 9

From: TIM (2) Date: July 2, 2004 at 7:32
Very thin production really ruins this one a bit, but is still high quality melodic rock. Easily their best album, and for my money is the only one worth tracking down if you don't have it. "Take My Hand" is a monster power-ballad, and although they stray into hard-rock to no great effect at times, this is mostly a top class release.

From: JAVI Date: July 7, 2004 at 8:47
Es uno de mis primeros discos de AOR en español, debes oirlo NOW OR NEVER! como dice una de sus canciones. Altamente recomendado.

From: jessica96fish Date: August 27, 2004 at 13:59

I didn't like it "that much" and don't think is worth a 9.00, but it's ok in a spanish-melodic-rock fan. The only true kick ass tune is Secret Lover (great key board/up-tempo AOR tune) and maybe Walking, the rest feels avarage. Sangre Azul, Shalom, Manzano and Jupiter beat them!

where can I can get shallom & jupiter on cd , e mail me ozrocknhard@bigpond.com

These guys are a damn good band if you ask me. Good musicians, reminding me of Marchello (especially the 2nd unreleased album) and the melodic side of Malmsteen even... at times. Either way, they write a bunch of good songs and make this a very good CD. Thumbs up, recommended and I'd like to find myself the original to be honest.

WOWWWWWWWW!!! Hey Boys this a Killer and a Masterpiece AOR album, Hard-AOR, Melodic Hard-Rock, All in one. Santa Madre de DIOS!!! Sin duda Junto a Hiroshima y Sangre Azul lo mejor de esas tierras de los legendarios 80, un album con un poder demoledor. encuentro similitudes de todo tipo, Dokken, Europe, shy, White sister, Glory, Treat... una mezcla impresionante, señores este disco me dejo sordo de tanto escucharlo a full volumen temazos Avasalladores como

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 27, 2005 at 10:29
I Will Be There(el mejor tema para mi, pero escuchen ese comienzo con esos teclados MAGICOS, solo por meter ese teclado es el MEJOR AUUUUU!!! SANTA MADRE DE DIOS que TEMAZO, canciones con sonidos asi me hacen sentir un SUPERHEROE, pero si es DEMOLEDOR, estoy loco pero por canciones como esta), Walking(otra JOYASA) que esta fundido con Fallen Angel, Now Or Never (otro empiezo DEMOLEDOR que gusto da escuchar temas con esa MAGIA unica de los 80), Secret Lover, Take My Hand

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 27, 2005 at 10:39
Un album que nadie que ama el AOR y Hard Rock debe dejar de tener porque es todo un pecado, cuanta envidia sana siento por mis hermanos Españoles, tener grupos asi de LEGENDARIOS, como es posible que no hayan llegado a la cumbre muchos grupitos actuales no le llegan ni a los zapatos, BAH pero este tipo de grupos es para PERSONAS legendarias como NOSOTROS, ARRIBA ESPAÑA CARAJO!!! TAMBIEN YA ES TIEMPO QUE ESTE MUNDIAL CAMPEONEN, TIENEN LA MEJOR LIGA DEL MUNDO, ES HORA DE DEMOSTRAR QUIENES SON!!!!!

From: SCANDI Date: June 17, 2005 at 14:11
Finally got this gem. I think "Walking" is very scandinavian styled like GLORY. "I will be there" is sounding more like compatriots HIROSHIMA (especially the intro). "Take my hand" is a superp ballad --even if not worldclass, it's VERY near. It reminds me of TREAT's "Best of me" a bit. The rest of the songs are a bit too heavy for my taste, but are not bad. Production is not the greatest but OK either. It's typically "cool" 80s glam rock stuff. 7/10

From: pereira Date: October 3, 2005 at 17:10
this album to me is NIAGARA's greatest hour!, the next albums may sound better (so people say,but i dissagree), but this album ROCKS much more than the next ones - BY FAR!!!

From: metalguf Date: November 3, 2006 at 14:04
I know many aorlover/hard rocker love this album. But it doesn't work for me. The sound is great and Tony Cuervas sings great. But the music doesn't catch me. Sorry guys.

Muy buen HardAOR con su buena dosis de teclados, producción regular. "Walking" es mi favorita de lejos, luego "Now Or Never" y "I Will Be There". Sangre Azul es de muy lejos lo mejor de España en mi humilde opinión. Saludos. 8.5/10

Hey, JagWire one Ponit for this album???

From: Vinfer Date: August 26, 2007 at 18:23
DIO meets EUROPE! Fantastic platter, a really masterpiece. I Will Be There: ARENA ROCK! vinfer80@tin.it

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 14, 2008 at 0:48
This is a Hard Rock album with some keys only (it ain't AOR).It reminds me of early Dokken.The songs are strong ones with the typical vein of the 80's.Also a good & solid singer (Cuevas) is in it and for a spanish one is quite oustanding."I Will Be There" is far the best but also the one that gives the album a Title "Now Or Never" and "Secret Lover" are worth too.Anyway,if you have the chance to buy it do it but don't expect too much (in the good sense of the word)...to open mind critics.75/100

From: 123charpenay Date: January 31, 2011 at 14:03
good music ,great songs but the main problem is the voice of the singer who is average.the background vocals on the choruses are very weaks.they are at million miles away under def leppard.and the ice on the cake the production is very cheap.
