Another all time class album. After the brilliant debut album came this one, which has Aldo smokin' all over it. A concept album of sorts, but don't let that put you off.Check out Armageddon Race Cars and tell me this boy can't play, plus a great cover of the Coney Hatch tune ' Hey Operatoer'. His best album imho and an essential part of any A.O.R collection

From: JASPOUILLE Date: August 31, 2002 at 23:55
RIGHT JEZ AFTER A GREAT DEBUT LP WHERE MR NOVA GAVE US A KULT CD I CAMA WITH HIS SECOND EFFORT...IT COUTAIN SOME GREAT STUFF TOO.ALDO YOU ARE A AOR GOD

From: Tom Brown Date: September 4, 2002 at 20:11
Like Jez & Jaspouille i love this cd, what a great guitar player he is.I have everything he has put out with Nova's Dream being the last one. Why is he not putting out anymore solo stuff ?

Otra joyita!!

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: November 25, 2002 at 4:35
Es muy bueno, para mi no lñlega a joyita pero si es muy bueno

From: Shawn Date: December 15, 2002 at 4:59
Love this one!I remember buying it at Mack's dept. store in '83. I didn't have the first album, but this one just looked cool, so I bought it. Thanksgiving of '83 to be exact, I also remember sneaking up to my bedroom during the Thanksgiving festivities at our house to listen to it. This is makes me 14 all over again. Fave tracks:Africa (Primal Love)/Hold Back the Night, Always Be Mine, All Night Long, Victim of a Broken Heart, Monkey, Cry Baby Cry, hell, all of it except Hey Operator. Coney Hat

From: Shawn Date: December 15, 2002 at 5:02
"Coney Hat" that ends my post means Coney Hatch, the writers of the song (remember these dudes?). I ran out of space.

From: VINCE Date: December 23, 2002 at 23:48
MONKEY ON YOUR BACK.............OH SHIT!!!TURN THIS SONG ALL THE WAY UP AND CLOSE YOUR EYES,IT'LL BLOW YOUR FUCKIN MIND!!9/10

From: iaffprofireman Date: January 5, 2003 at 0:56
Aldo is such a huge tallent, and this album is just another example of his incredible ability. Just like the first one, it's an AOR classic!

From: MelodicMan Date: May 20, 2003 at 11:02
His best work. Awesome pompish AOR. Great production for that time. One of my all time favorite records.

From: Decibel Dave Date: May 20, 2003 at 18:35
Awesome CD, with very creative use of keyboards. Very atmospheric at times, with some great straight ahead hard rock and AOR selections also. Still in my top 25 CD's...

From: CC Date: November 6, 2003 at 16:14
Love his other albums but totally hated this one!

From: gun Date: May 31, 2004 at 12:22
gooood

From: Rycheage Date: June 12, 2004 at 23:24
It's quite the classic, maybe Nova's best work. Taken at face value its spotless AOR. This time around Nova employed a band after undertaking the first album almost single handedly. The notion that this failed on musical terms is absurd and an insult to anyone who understands what good AOR should be. And that is sumptuous melody. On that note 'Subject' is faultless.

From: Rocker10 Date: October 30, 2004 at 18:53
An absolute classic. The lead up to 'Monkey on your back' was absolutely awesome. Aldo does is again! 9.5/10

From: Geoff Date: January 3, 2005 at 23:44
This album has some cool AOR / melodic rock songs and is much better than the previous album, but there's a lot of annoying shit that IMO doesn't really need to be littered across this album. Still, pretty cool AOR album but nothing special IMO.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: February 4, 2005 at 21:59
OTRO BUEN ALBUM NO MEJOR QUE EL SIGUIENTE O EL PRIMERO PERO ES BUENO, GRANDES CORTES Always Be Mine AND Victim of a Broken Heart (MIS JOYAS QUE TEMAZOS), Paradise, All Night Long, Cry Baby Cry GRACIAS ALDO POR DEJARNOS TAN GRANDES OBRAS EL MUNDO Y EN ESPECIAL LOS AMANTES DE LA MEJOR MUSICA DEL MUNDO COMO NOSOTROS TE ESTAREMOS AGREDECIDOS POR SIEMPRE. ALDO NOVA FOREVER LONG LIFE.

From: Warren Beaumont Date: March 1, 2005 at 23:01
I bought this album in 1987 for about 3 pound when all my friends were still listening to Madonna & Kylie minogue.Well im glad i had some taste I could nt wait to put it on my stereo i had been playing guitar for about 6 yrs.Along with all my other inspirations this album kept me playing & since then i ve been fortunate to play all over the world in various bands & are still playing & writing today.This album rocks & Im gonna buy it again on c.d..they just don t make em like this anymore ALDO NO

From: lalorock Date: October 30, 2006 at 13:32
Excelente disco, solos de guitarra impresionantes al finalizar Hold back the night que canción!!,temas en onda hard aor teclados mágicos Always be mine coros bien puestos,canciones todas parejas de calidad,rockeras, medio tiempos, se ha convertido en uno de mis albumes favoritos clasico sonido 80´s, demostración de tecnica instrumental y melodía,y pensar que tiene ya 23 años, temazo tras temazo,Cry baby cry otra excelente canción,un deber para todo amante del aor hard rock 9/10.

From: Nick C Date: June 2, 2007 at 9:20
Been updating my Aldo collection to CD and hadn't played this one for a while. It's superb album, I think I prefer Twitch, some prefer the debut.and some prefer this, but back in the 80's he released 3 sublime albums each one appealing to different folks probably for different reasons. This has some wonderful moments, even some of the shorter tracks are excellent like Prelude to Paradise. On Cry Baby Cry he sounds remarkably like Kenny Shields of Streetheart in fact he does throughout this IMHO.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 22, 2009 at 12:12
More sophisticated than his marvellous debut or perhaps more studied in harmonies comes this second "jewell", SUBJECT an album that introduce o was meant to sound more keyboard orientated but without any intention of sounding poor or powerless in fact the starter "Subject's Theme" suggested you that "pop" vibe but then "Armageddom" makes you jump out of your seat!!!another fine and excellent moments are "Hold Back The Night"(what a song!)"Always Be Mine"(i never get tired of listening 2 it,it's pure magic!)"Victim Of A Broken Heart"(beautiful,perhaps the second part of Ball And Chain).Well,buy this album without any doubts and enjoy the best of music!!!.95/100

From: edwithmj Date: December 5, 2011 at 18:11
Excellent follow up! There are some tasty solos on this disc and my favourite track has to be Armageddon but Hey Operator and Hold Back The Night come close behind. This disc is a little heavier I feel than his soft debut but the melodies and light vocals are there just the same.

From: RClap Date: August 16, 2012 at 16:22
This is a great album. It's not as good as the first one but it has great songs. Highly recommended. 95/100

From: 123charpenay Date: April 14, 2016 at 13:37
no doubt ,this second realise is better than his debut album.aldo nova is a maniac of strange instrumental songs.(track 1.2 and 3).the cd start at track 4 ,and here good surprise we discover a very great hard fm ,more mature more smart than his first realise.ok the end of the record ,track 12.13 and 14 are very very average.
