the first song on this disc 'mystery of mind' is MINDBLOWING...

From: thelostdj Date: April 29, 2004 at 2:48
Great hardrockin' disc. Excellent production. Anette Johansson delivers some awesome vocals....best female rock voice I've heard in a long time. Tryin to pick the best tracks is tough...probably 1,2,4,& 10.

Shiva can do heavy as good as they can do melodic! Anette Johannson demonstrates her musical diversity with this one here. I didn't think it was possible to sound like Ann Wilson, Sandi Saraya, and Gigi Hangagh all at once!!! I'm guessing that Album #3 will be an all-heavy affair (which would be AWESOME!!!)

From: jessica96fish Date: September 5, 2004 at 10:43
this is poor stuff from this band.yeah its heavy.but no real stand out songs.not as the first one.and when they were yankee heaven.now that is an album.

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: August 14, 2007 at 3:07
VERY HEAVY AOR !!! ANETTE JOHANSSON voice is unbelivable from SCREAMS to soft whispers and some SOPRANO's stuff too ! If you like MELODIC METAL then you'll love this one ! Even the fans of soft AOR may find some great hooks and chorus ! 85/100 CHECK "the curse of the gift"CD
