Existing comments about this CD

From: tomcat Date: October 8, 2003 at 5:53
let me be the first to say this is a top class cd...the ep was already giving an impression of how great this act is and on this full lenght they showed how talented they were...if you're a fan of melodic rock and you wanna be blown away...buy this one.. 'you win some, lose some but life goes on'... the only thing that sucked is the cover of the ramones..don't get me wrong, i luv the ramones, but their version is a bit too lame especially when you compare it with the version of vince neil..

From: kriddolls Date: January 2, 2004 at 17:02
About that Ramones cover...ya it was pretty lame I agree. They ended up releasing it as the first single....huge mistake! My favorite is Haunted! Hey did you crank up the CD at the end to hear all of us singing the Joplin tune very horribly?... all in good fun!

From: Edwin Date: January 2, 2004 at 18:59
It was pretty laim but the album really is of superb quality. Songs and playing a escellent and this might be by far the most underrated release from Canada, ever! Dubé should have stopped them to release that single....... Edwin

Hey to all in T.O. Joker. From Sarnia. Used to DJ at the Station. Partied many times at "The House" with you..... Hope you're all doing well!! Still love the CD...

From: TIM (2) Date: June 25, 2004 at 4:36
I actually quite like the Ramones cover. Decent enough album, worth keeping for me as an AOR fan purely for the killer track "I Wanna Know" with it's guitar/keys mix and great chorus.

From: Geoff Date: August 26, 2004 at 8:57
Never saw the attraction in this one. It's okay at times, but how many fillers can a band put on a CD? 'Haunted' is a really good song, 'She's an illusion' is great melodic hard rock and 'I wanna know' is a good stab at commercial hard rock. I really liked the sound of the band, just didn't have enough songs to back it up, IMO. Some goodies though.

From: z4roxx Date: January 22, 2005 at 23:48
Geoff,agree that this one is not awesome ect..but this is a really good band and musicians too,IMO.I love production and choruses,maybe little rip from Harem Scarem but I find them quite original.Some songs are very good and catchy in melodies and arrangments,too.Their best cd is the debut indeed,that cd is very good,it's a shame there aren't any comments yet.It's strange sometimes to see some good release without any comment/review,T.O.Joker/unsigned is a good quality release,IMO.

From: JF Date: October 19, 2005 at 15:52
Alguien me puede decir a quien se parece el cantante y si la produccion es buena. Por ultimo si realmente es tan bueno para compararlo con Harem, haber si lo pido a una amiga en japon. Se los agradeceria.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 26, 2006 at 23:53
6/10 con esa puntuacion defino todo, un album que no recomiendo y no se porque hay mas de 9 como rating? claro hay sus temas I Wanna Know y Haunted los mejores por alli 2 mas el resto en lo comun.

From: hair metal again Date: December 10, 2016 at 2:37
agai Geoff hits the spot with this one and i totally agree!very capable musos ,but i prefer their style in the Unsigned release ,more plain !some good songs of course like "i wanna know" ,"she s an illusion" and "destination abstract"
