This is really a good aor album. Please take special note of the song rain! Great tune. If your into good old rock this is a keeper

From: DC Date: August 22, 2001 at 12:23
A good effort from a great band. They could've ditched the song Easy Street but other than that its a great album. 8 outta 10

From: Roog Date: August 23, 2001 at 1:04
I agree with the former comments except that Easy Street is one of the better songs on the album. It's so care-free and happy, makes me smile.

From: Billy Boy Date: January 9, 2002 at 8:48
"Lionheart" is the best song of album and the TNT!!!

From: Jenni Date: January 19, 2002 at 18:30
I just want to mention that Easy Street sounds like Killer Queen by Queen (listen to them both and you will see!), but I have to agree Lionheart rocks...the live version is better anyday!

Se alejan del sonido escandinavo para adentrarse en el sonido americano,por lo menos salvan la papeleta y sacan un disco muy digno, no como unos paisanos suyos,cuyo nombre empieza por Stag....

From: david Date: August 16, 2002 at 6:40
Jóder, no sé decir cual es el mejor disco de TNT, pero este es la ostia. De acuerdo con la canción RAIN. Es mi canción favorita no de TNT, sino de toda mi colección y de mi vida. Creo de todas formas que Stripped de Stage Dolls es muy buen disco también. A mí me gusta mucho aunque no sea como el azul.

From: mama-kin Date: March 21, 2003 at 23:27
muy competente disco, algo americano pèro cañero

From: Federico Date: March 22, 2003 at 10:05
A great album, after the more AOR oriented Intuition, they get back to the amzing class metal of Tell not tale. This is a masterpiece.

From: robert Date: March 22, 2003 at 15:16
Maravilloso disco!! Ronnie, y Tony son 2 Monstruos! Por supuesto, q esto esta muy lejos ya del TELL NO TALES, y d la pedazo de obra de Arte: intuition, pero para mi este es un grandioso disco, sin duda para mi gusto su mejor tercer trabajo... Un placer escuchar discos asi!!

From: Scandinavia Date: June 9, 2003 at 12:10
Yes, very good melodies on this one...Too bad it was released when it was too late to make any real impact.

From: Martín Date: June 21, 2003 at 9:22
Tell no Tales e Intuition son mucho mejores pero la balada Lionheart es la mejor de TNT lejos. Tony Harnell se luce y su voz te llega de una manera increible sobre todo en el final del tema. Es buenisima. Gracias TNT otra vez por su musica.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 29, 2004 at 18:11
This album sounds like TNT is trying to sound like a typical hair metal band. I can see why the band themselves don't like this disc. Still, they manage to have one of their best songs on here "Hard To Say Goodbye". 6/10

From: TIM (2) Date: June 30, 2004 at 11:19
This was always going to be a disappointment for me after the brilliance of "Intuition", and the song quality on here is not as high as previous. Some good tracks (i.e, "Rain" - awesome vocals), and overall it's very similar in song structure to the new CD, but I much prefer "Intuition".

From: Rycheage Date: July 24, 2004 at 19:03
This does seem a step back after 'Intuition', but does not mean it is a bad CD. As a matter of fact it's a great CD. "Downhill Racer", "Hard To Say Goodbye", "Mother Warned Me", "Rain", and "Purple Mountains Majesty" are real good rockers of the first order. "Lionheart" is an touching ballad done with extreme class. Great CD that seems destined to live in the gargantuan shadow of 'Intuition'.

From: Geoff Date: August 26, 2004 at 9:15
I'm not really sure how I rate this overall as a comparison to 'Intuition'. I love all TNT releases after and including 'Tell no tales' and this is one of those. The first 5 tracks are killer, and I like 'All you need' of the rest. Tony's voice is brilliant and 'Lionheart' is one amazing ballad. The first track is first class melodic hard rock too. Great album.

From: kan from taiwan Date: September 21, 2004 at 19:55
it's strange! i like this album than 'Intuition"!for me the songs in 'Intuition" are too soft! no powerand speed! this one is much better ! haha

From: C.J. Scheck Date: December 30, 2004 at 20:30
I think this is the BEST TnT CD I ever heard! Thank you TNT for a GREAT cd!! saltdog419@webtv.net

From: meradona Date: February 26, 2005 at 13:25
se que en este disco toca en alguna cancion Danny Miranda ¿sabeis cual es? . es el nuevo bajista de queen

From: R.S. - Rocks Date: March 15, 2005 at 12:36
Light and shadow on this one. On one side fantastic songs like "Downhill racer", "Hard to say goodbye" or "Lionheart" - on the other side extreme weak tracks like "All you need", "Easy street" and "All you need". The front cover also sucks. So this is miles behind "My religion" or "Tell no tales". But better than "Firefly" or the first one.

From: Lovedrive Date: May 21, 2005 at 13:23
Para mí se salva Lionheart, el resto mejor no hablar..

From: mauricio Date: June 7, 2005 at 13:21
hi-from COSTARICA,despues de la hexalogia de BJORN NESSJOE en la produccion de 4 grandes discos de T N T ,vienen T N T con nuevo productor RICK WAKE Y con el RIOT en la bateria nada mas y nada menos que JOHN MACALUSO,como si fuera poco grabado en USA aparece este REALIZED FANTASIES,un disco un tanto compacto en su sonido aunque se desmarca un poco del sonido escandinavo,me refiero a un par de temas con un sonido americano el 7-9,pero el album esta muy bien solo escuchar la apertura primer tema

From: mauricio Date: June 7, 2005 at 13:21
DOWN HILL RACER,uno de los mejores-HARD TO SAY GOODBYE con una intro similar a 10000 lovers in one pero muy compacta-MOTHER WARNED ME es como si fuese salido de tell no tales o como una continuacion de everyone´s a star-LIONHEART otra de lo mas destacable del disco hermosa.-RAIN otro tema viva esencia de T N T pero compacta-PURPLE MOUNTAIN MAJESTY me parece un tema mas al principio me costo tragar por lo complicado-ROCK N ROLL AWAY tipico tema americano a eso me referia-EASY STREET es oir otra

From: mauricio Date: June 7, 2005 at 13:22
version de killer queen de QUEEN un tanto mas rockera-ALL YOU NEED otro tema americano no se pero el 7 y 9 no hubiesen sido para este grupo-INDIAN SUMMER que manera de cerrar el disco yo veo de ahi la presencia de teclados.en conclusion otro gran disco de T N T que mete al mejor grupo noruego en los 90 s y en proporcion digo que es 70% escandinavo,10%britanico y 20%americano en este disco yo el doy 8/0,a mi me suena muy compacto aun asi salva la papeleta. compralo ya que es dificil de conseguir

From: "el gran Ñako" Date: June 9, 2005 at 1:49
Buen trabajo de la banda escandinava que me atrapó con "Tell no tales", me enredó con el "Intuition" y me remató con este album. Se alejan un poco más del sonido nordico, orientándose al americano, siguen haciendo unos coros y melodías impresionantes, la guitarra sigue sonando punzante y cañera y que decir de la maravillosa voz de Tony Harnell, que llega a puntos donde parece imposible que una garganta humana pueda llegar. Alta calificación para este trabajo. Ah, y una preciosa portada.

From: ROBERT Date: March 31, 2006 at 12:02
Joder, pero ¿Como coño no habia comentado/criticado este pedazo d discazo hasta ara? Ademas d un grandisimo año como es el 1992(vaya cosexon) NO LO ENTIENDO pos lo hago ara mismo, 14 años dp d comprarmelo original en cinta, con muxo esfuerzo en mi city!! Ya el comienzo indica por dd van a ir los tiros, HARD MELODICO ESCANDI-NAVO del mejor!!! las 2 siguientes son otros 2 temazos comerciales a tope!! Pero la verdadera magia empieza con el Baladote LIONHEART,RAIN y sobre todo INDIAN SUMMER, claro q

From: ROBERT Date: March 31, 2006 at 12:04
las demas tampoco desentonan demasiado!! en definitiva un pedazo d discazo!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 22, 2008 at 0:20
Another fine release from these guys that know how to rock!!!.Well composed songs with their personal "touch".TNT is one of the best bands to come out of Europe 4 sure!!!.

From: WookieEnthal Date: July 12, 2009 at 3:24
I found this in a bargain bin a very long time ago...I think it was even in a CD longbox if anyone remembers those. I hated it so bad the first time I listened to it but it has grown quite a bit on me over the years. If you're a fan of TNT's other gems don't give up on this after a few listens, give it a chance...it's got it's own character.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 14, 2011 at 14:31
Being objective and more extensive in my comment of 2008,this album passed under the table...did not make any big fuss or at least is my appreciation of it...it was the beginning of changing their european sound(scandi basically) to be more focused in the american one...which they did quite good ..."Dowhill Racer" & "Hard To Say Goodbye" are both excellent songs,"Rain" is catchy and rocking,"All You Need" & "indian Summer" has that AORish feel...nice one indeed...'nuff said!.87/100

From: hair metal again Date: February 7, 2012 at 5:10
excellent release by TNT and i really like their sound in this one ,as its more rockin and the songs are more feel good than previous releases!the strong part in Realised Fantasies are Tony s vocs which are brilliant (in next marvelous release also) cause he doesn t go too high!all the songs are very good and especially "rock n roll away","all you need" and "rain".essential for hard rockers

From: HEAVY PARADISE Date: June 23, 2012 at 12:48
More U.S. oriented sound here but still a gem for every single fan of TNT. A MUST HAVE!!!!!!

From: Ydol eM Date: July 9, 2013 at 12:24
It's definitely not another "Intuition" but we can still get high-quality Scandi melodic heavy rock. In compare with previous two albums I miss some marked songs (except "Lionheart"), which could blow my mind like once "10,000 Lovers" or "Take Me Down" ... . Anyway, if you are a fan of bands like Treat, Europe, 220 Volt, you can't be disappointed by any of TNT's albums. Btw. Jenni's comment is right (IMO), but there are more reminiscences e.g. #1 of Harem Scarem's... 85/100.
