|Yes, indeed a spectacular album...Great to hear Mr.Fast before his involvement with Pretty Maids...The tracks are typical mid-80s melodic metal with high emphasis on guitars & vocals. It's pretty rare these days so do pick it up if you find it...It's worth it!

|Hahaha just read an interview with Michael Fast...HERO were named COLD PIZZA prior to this release...I'd have changed the name too!

|HERO and COLD PIZZA? Both sound like something you'd have for breakfast after a hard night. I'll have to hear something from them just out of curiosity!

|Yeah, right on Christine! This is a very cool album if you can find it...I don't know why the Ebay average price is so low since it's a pretty rare item...But very recommended.

|Scandinavia. Hej du. I think its because, the price is from the Judas Priest release called Hero. Click on the ebay price and you'll see.

|There's another band called Hero and I prefer those guys, but this isn't that bad. A lot of keyboards, and some decent tracks. I guess you could slightly compare it to Pretty Maids 'Future world' BUT, with 3/4 of the song writing quality. But a sort of similar sound... sort of, a little more AOR though. It's hard to pinpoint, but all in all this is pretty average AOR.

|was this pressed on CD?
||Date: February 12, 2005 at 20:41|
|I only have a CDR and am not sure if it is copied from CD or from LP. Sorry, can't help. If I had to guess, I'd say it's definately copied from a CD though.

|I don't think it was ever pressed on CD...I only own the original LP version and my homemade CD copy ...But a worthy release none the less!!

|Itīs not spectacular but enjoyable Melodic HardAOR/Metal with plenty of keys, catchy choruses, some killer tunes and great solos. "Race And Revel" is my favorite track. 1986 yeah, what a year! Recommended. 8.2/10

|Quite a goodie in here,Melodic Rock/AOR with some metal touches added,indeed,quite a goodie ..."Masquerade" & "Turning Out A Star" are pretty enjoyable songs...tracks 1,2,4(rocks!),6(rocks real good!)& 8 are also appealing...recommended i'd say...87/100
