With everything going on in the world right now, people have more important
concerns and priorities to deal with, so I am postponing the annual Heavy Harmonies

|A solid debut album without doubt. Won't appeal to all hard rock fans, but will definitely be popular among those that like a strong lead vocalist with a deep voice and those that love keyboards swirling around within each track. An 80's style hard rock record that compares to Bon Jovi and Skid Row with Poison's groove. A solid production and smooth mix helps the record stand out.

|Perhaps I was expecting to much, but I for one thought Aftermath were very average,nice use of restained keys & track no.9 "Better Days" is a killer,but the rest lacked class,Skid Row-ish.

|Because I had heard so much about these guys I picked this up the day it came out. Not blown away at first but God how this thing has grown on me. The more I listen, the more I get it. Great debut and some of the best musicianship I have heard from a new band in quite some time. My only critique would be a heavier mix for these guys next time around. The "arena" sound they have on this album gives 'em that 80's sound so many are critical of. Give these guys the right engineer and who knows.....

|These guys hail from New Jersey and were founded in 1995. Trends be damned, these guys are sticking to their 80's hard rock roots - the music is unashamedly classic 80's melodic hard rock, with a heavy reliance on keyboards. The style is similar to how Bon Jovi operated in their early years. This is definitely a classic era sound, but the music isn't dated. A love keyboards will help your enjoyment, as they play as prominent a role as the guitars and vocals.

|I RATE THIS CD AS BEING THE BEST RELEASE FROM ESCAPE MUSIC SO FAR.THERE IS A LOT OF VARIETY ON THE DISC.TRACKS 1,2 AND 5 BLOW ME AWAY.THE BALLAD PAIN OF THE MEMORY IS ONE OF THE BEST BALLADS OF 2003.THANKS MR TURK FOR THIS CD AND I HOPE YOU PICK UP MORE TALENT LIKE THIS BAND.I LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT AFTERMATH CD!

|These guys can play! And they can write a pretty damn decent hard rock song. They remind me of a heavier, more polished Mystery Bloom, or sort of like a heavier Stone Angel. Again, wild comparisons but if you've liked a few of the recent attempts at a straight ahead, but melodic hard rock approach I really recommend these guys. There are some killer riffs here - I believe the opening song is a real highlight, and 'Loving you' is great too. This is really a very good hard rock disc.

|un album regular, las mejores canciones son las baladas "lovin' you" y "behind these eyes", lo demas es muy comun, nada del otro mundo, 5/10

|This is not consistant, singer sounds like Jeff Scot Soto sometimes but it has a more modern sound it's DEFO not 80's. Rycheage I like the stuff you mentioned but this is not it try "Red Dawn" for that, production is flat and lifeless sorry but it's to warn and boring...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

|2003 must be the year for 80's style hard rock bands to release a record. Earlier in 03 a fantastic band called Monkeyhead released a record that made think I was back in L.A. in 1987.These guys are the same for me.Though there's nothing new here Aftermath plays this style of music as good as anyone.I here Whitesnake,Warrant,Kiss,even a little Europe and White Lion influences.Its pure 80's hard rock with harmony sing along vocals,heavy riffs and catchy hooks.If either Monkeyhead or Aftermath would have come out with these records 15 years earlier they would be huge rock stars now.Timing is everything I guess but I'm not complaining I love it.Highly recommended 95/100.

|These guys split with their label and 3 of the 4 went on to form Fools Faith with a new guitar player and a slight change in musical style.I think the guitar player here is much better then his replacement in FF.Out of the three Cd's they have out this is the best.I'm not saying the 2 FF Cd's aren't really good,they are very good.This CD is pretty tough to beat.Check out the Fools Faith Cd's Undone and Sinister F. at their website http://www.foolsfaith.com.
