|A very very good album. Tommy Denander has done an excellent job putting this together. Each song has it's own identity with different singers used throughout. Steve Overland is the best though on Lies Feed On Lies (but FM are one of my favoutite bands). He's still got 'the voice'. Saying that, 7am is a fantastic song with a brilliant sing along chorus. The production is excellent, really full sounding with a warm bass sound,clear crisp drums and the guitar sound is heavy but very melodic.

|One of the top releases of last year. Slightly heavier than the debut,and less of a Westcoast feel. Paul is right when commenting on Steve Overland - the boy still has it indeed (listen to the excellent Shadowman cd - Land of the living for further proof). Excellent material throughout and faultless musicianship - Tommy you've done us proud yet again!!!!

|tommy denander "sounds" damn good, but a bit cliched, I mean always the same

|This is a sensational album- the production is killer for an 'independent' release, the solos are superb, and as for the vocals- well the likes of fergie Frederiksen, Matt Alfonzetti, Steve Overland and Geir Ronning really light my fire. If I ever had the talent to make a record I'd want it to sound like this!

|Fans of the crossover West Coast/AOR sound so lovingly executed by the likes of Toto will take to 'Yeah' with no need for an introduction. Melodic to the core, but with emphasis on that lavish guitar a la Lukather, Huff and Schon. Perhaps also, the songs have been written more recently, with less traces of that 'grandiose' period in which Tommy's previous songs were sourced from.

|Tommy Denander and AOR,PERFECT CHEMISTRY.The man is a true star in the genre,and on currant form with DEACON STREET and SPIN GALLERY it shows no sign of abating.NUFF SAID....

|I totally agree with you Wotty, Tommy Denander is a genius and I think we will hear a lot more good things from him (Frozen Rain ! etc.).
||Date: August 22, 2004 at 6:58|
|Another class CD,however Tommys involved so Geoff,slate this one as well......
||Date: August 22, 2004 at 23:24|
|Don't worry Wotty, I got this one on CDR before I forked out the dollars for the original, and what do you know?! Hated it as well. As I stated in my original post in reference to Tommy, I do appreciate what he is doing and good on him and the fans of that style, I just don't like his style of song writing at all. No offence meant to anyone, and just an opinion I have...

|I hold my hands up Geoff,I thought your reply was well put and thought out,but hating YEAH,I find that rather difficult to believe.For a person who seems to own or have heard over half of the CDs EVER released,to suggest there seems to be a blandness about Tommys style appears blinkered.NOW THERES A RETORT....

|I see Geoff's point, if you like this you're sure to love: Prisoner, Sayit, Talk of the Town, Deacon Street etc. If not, you won't. I just don't see that many people doing this stuff anymore so will snap up just about anything in the pure AOR field. I preferred the first Radioactive, purely because the vocalists were more to my tastes, as I love the westcoast singers. The trademark lead guitar work is all here, as are the quality songs. 8/10.
||Date: August 23, 2004 at 11:15|
|Tim,In retrospect I can appreciate Geoffs point too.However your point is a bit more balanced than the I HATED THAT comment he delivered.
||Date: August 23, 2004 at 19:54|
|Sorry Wotty, I know it seems a little harsh but I guess for these ears that's just me. Please note, I did not say it is crap and cannot understand why others like it - I understand well and clear, but it is just my personal taste. There are others on this site that will straight out tell you it's crap, purely because they do not like it ("cough* AOR Freaky) but I am not like that and like to justify what strange comments I make. Sorry if I offended you with my bluntness and please, enjoy the CD!

|Buena composición musical donde Tommy Denander destaca su trabajo con la guitarra. Gran repertorio de cantantes, pero para mí, uno de los mejores es sin duda Steve Overland. Hard Rock/AOR de primera.

|The new RADIOACTIVE album "Taken" is nearly here & the soundbytes to this sound KILLER. Even GEOFF will love it! Just listen to the James Christian/Robin Beck duet "Easy's Getting Harder" for the most anthemic AOR tune since about 1985. The best tune either have ever produced, I guarantee. Cannot wait for this disc...

|Been playing this one a lot lately & is certainly heavier & not quite as consistent as new album "Taken". It's still great, & Geir Ronning is magnificent on this. His Coverdale-esque vocals are magnificent, especially on my fave tune "Over You" which is a glorious ballad that opens with some Schon-like lead guitar work from Tommy. A couple of fillers just after half-way, but the 2 closing tracks are brilliant. "7 AM" being the best track TOTO never wrote, with Fergie's awesome vocals. Excellent.

|Mi tema favorito es de lejos "Don't Give Up", le siguen "Over You" "Until I Change Your Heart" y "7 A.M.". El buen solo en "I Should Have Known Better" y la voz como siempre sin defraudar de Steve Overland en "Lies Feed On Lies" tambien aceptables. Los temas en global no son una maravilla en mi opinión, lo mas destacable sin duda alguna son los solos de Mr. Denander, se nota que se ha trabajado mucho en ello. 8.3/10

|Ok, love it-but anything that my favorite Matti Alfonzetti is involved with I can't help but love. Of course he shines on "Until I Change Your Heart" with his smooth vocals. Another stand-out is "Don't Give Up"

|Got the japanese release with the B/T "Somewhere Someday" which is a goodie one so it is pretty worth to have it included on your disc...tracks 1,2,5,7,9,10,11( ) & 12( ) are strong cuts so in general lines this album along with the band's 2 other releases are a must...recommended...88/100
