|Very good second AOR record from these guys. One of the very best Z-releases ever. A must for every AOR fan.

|I'm blown away. Doesn't suffer from second album sophmore jinx one bit. In fact, this might even be BETTER than the debut. Soaring vocals, big choruses at every turn, flawless production... INSTANT CLASSIC! It's going to be VERY tough to top this one as Best of 2004.

|A nice little gem to start 2004 off with,nice hooks and vocals that remind me a little of Firehouse.I hope this sets the tone for things to come this year.

|What's even better about the new album is the songwriting. While there has been no attempt to veer from the style of the keyboard friendly early 80's, the songs themselves contain better hooks and even more memorable choruses. There are plenty of moments to catch the listener's attention and reel them in. The beauty of each track is instantly recognizable thanks to well placed melodies and vocal hooks.

|I loved the first release. And they managed to put out an even better follow up. Excellent songwriting, catchy hooks. Not a filler to be found here. Cant wait for the third wave !

|A killer album!This is old school AOR done the best possible way.What makes a good album is the songs, and this has plenty. Listen to second wave and Lydia-songs that you won`t get out of your head!I really hope these guys will make more albums. rating: 9.5 of 10.

|Awesome stuff. "Cinderella in Rags" is a poor ballad, but the rest is stunning. Better than the first CD, and one of the best pure AOR releases of the past few years. The production is about average, but the songs are fabulous. "Can't Stop Falling In Love" is spine-tingling...

|How can anyone listening to this cd not think Styx instantly? Lost Inside a Dream and Can't Stop Falling in Love could easily be on any Styx album from the eighties. Top notch!!

|Perfect AOR here. Cant stop falling in love (with this album and band), Lydia, Faithfull heart, Second wave are top songs. Enjoy ! firstname.lastname@example.org

|Smooth 80s style AOR.The cd has that 80s feel all the way through it,that said it is very good release.Now if it had Hellow and Goodbye on it from The First Wave...An excellent release.....8/10

|How AOR should be...Part2...

|Like the debut, I like the majority of the tracks, but one track -'Faithful heart' blows me away again. This time, however, we also have gems like 'Lost inside a dream', but like the debut, most the tracks are first class slabs of AOR / melodic rock. 'Last to know' is still my fave, but two killer albums thus far...

|What a wonderful cd !! Lot of melodies, great vocals and nice guitars ! Enjoy !!!!

|very good release from Final Frontier, took a while to grow and now it is grown into one of my favs of 04, great high range vocals and tons of backgrounds and catchy lyrics that will knock you out. This band should be huge, comparable to top AOR bands from the late 70's-80's but with an original and wonderful production value. One of the best of 04

|Once again, I fully agree, Swriter ! A pity that their newie 'High Tension Wire' has not such a good production at all ! But, great band !!!!!

|Loved the debut, love this one even more (like everyone else it seems). Melodic AOR as it should be done (if you're stuck in a time warp like myself).Definately one of the best bands around today trying to keep the flag flying.

|Styx, Styx & Styx!!!! Feel like I'm listening to Styx here!!!!! I'm not talkin' about the influences of the band but I'm saying that they have copied Styx!!!!! Good CD but nothing is like the original music of Styx so better get Styx first!!!!!

|this was a real bargain, found it with some other cool CDs (Steelheart, Midnite Sky, Double Cross.....) for 3 Euros, not bad or? The album itself is a must have for anyone who loves excellent 80´s style vocal harmonies.

|Got all 3 (original) albums yesterday. Fu.. what a great band. Love this type of melodic (rock) AOR. Brilliant.

|Este tiene un sonido mas clasicón que su "high tension wire" que tiene un sonido como actualizado, me gusta tanto como el anterior. Muy bueno! suenan a JOURNEY, si hasta en la caratula se nota pero lo hacen con sumo gusto. 9/10

|Tendría que decir.. El "High Tension Wire" me gusta mas, ya escuchandolo muchas veces ambos. De éste Disco me gusta "Lost Inside A Dream", "Faithful Heart", "Cinderella In Rags" y "Can't Stop Falling In Love" son las mejores en mi opinión. Muy clásico este pero bueno de todos modos. "Delia" que es bonus japones es un baladita bien bonita. Buen disco, pero el anterio es mucho mejor IMO
