Good christian stuff.The vocals are in the same vein as Jim Jidhed from Alien.

From: Fog-hat Date: November 27, 2002 at 8:55
Very lame and boring. Has no "Live" feel to it at all. Lyrics are good but that's about it. I wasted 98 cents on this used album. Maybe if i'm lucky I'll get 10 cents for it when I sell it back to them.

I have been looking to buy this CD since 1988. What a blessing to finally find it!

From: WALT48215@AOL.C Date: April 6, 2003 at 21:20
Dear Peter and Nicolai: It's been a few years since I saw you in person. I would like to know how you are doing? I live in Det., Mich. and I attend Christ Community Church in Roseville Mich. I have never forgotten about you guys and I hope you are doing well. I hope to see you again sometime! Sincerely A Fan Walter Somody walt48215@aol.com

I've been looking for your music for years, ever since we saw you at Sonshine. I was so excited to find it! It's just as great now as it was then. Thank you! I hope someday we'll hear how you're doing. God Bless! Thanks for sharing your talents with us. Caron

I've been looking for awhile for this album ever since I had it back in 1988. I loved the lyrics and music. I finally got a sealed copy of it off of E-bay and it is worth every dollar I spent. Thanks again for the words and testimonies you gave - I saw you twice in 1988 in Roanoke, VA. God bless you on your further projects....Rick Ferguson, txfergie81771@aol.com

Is Andy Denton part of this band or just a guest vocalist?

From: Impaler Date: September 12, 2004 at 22:11
James, Andy Denton formerly of Lazarus then became the lead vocalist of Ruscha and was in the band and toured with the band before going to Legend which then became Legend Seven. Not bad if you like Loverboy, Petra & Bryan Adams. Great story about a couple of the members' struggles in Soviet Russia before the fall of communism.

From: Erik Date: January 21, 2005 at 13:32
Would have loved to hear more punchy songs like Do you care ? But all in all a nice album. Too soft/slow for my liking but nice lyrics and good musicianship all around.

From: koogles Date: February 18, 2006 at 19:51
Found this CD for $0.99 in Waterford, MI, USA! Amazing stuff, and easily the best band ever to come out of Russia. Sparkling keyboards and clean, accent-free vocals that remind me of Europe's Joey Tempest at times, and the AOR side of Mastedon at others. Best tracks: "Holy and True", "The Word Stands Forever" and "Do You Care?" A must for fans of Mastedon, Idle Cure, Toto and Allies.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 1, 2010 at 14:48
Excellent Christian AOR album with all the ingredients to be huge!,catchy songs and with a vocalist that reminds me a little bit of Jimi Jammison (Survivor fame)..but maybe the country of origin did not help the band 2 continue with their career coz as far as i know they only recorded one album."Come Alive","Someone Listening","Broken Heart" and "Exalt The Name" are top notch songs!.90/100

From: metalmaniac777 Date: May 5, 2011 at 14:50
Light, fluffy Christian AOR that has about as much bite as a goldfish. It's drenched in keyboards, so maybe fans of that style will find something to cream their shorts over, but there's just no getting around the fact that this is pretty boring stuff.
