|Finally one of the finest voices from Sweden releases another album. The production, including Tommy Denander, is great, love the songs and this really proves that Mr Jidhed's still going strong I haven't heard anything like this since the original Alien line-up back in the late 80's!

|Another newie and some think it's one of the finest AOR albums of this year. Hmm. . ., personally I don't agree. It's certainly not a bad release, far from it, but if you have to compare this to other AOR releases (album of the year 'Pride Of Lions', Ramos, Outland, Double Cross, Vertigo, Departure, etc.), it's not that great. A fine record, but not a great one.

|Definately one of the highlights of the year for me. Freddy-your list is ok -some goodish releases, but none are better than this one. The Pride Of Lions Is Excellent, but the others, especially 'Outland' were big dissapointments. Anyways This here JJ cd is superb from beginning to end, and if you're a big Tommy Denander fan (which i am) you won't go wrong. Consistently strong throughout unlike some of the so so releases at the moment/ this year.

|I can understand your comment, Jez. Let's say, most AOR releases this year are on par, only Pride Of Lions is out of category for me ! Outstanding record, that one !

|the song 'don't close your eyes' makes my day..excellent tune..other listening tips: 'now we cry', 'full circle' and 'are we're fallin' in love'.

|Why does everything touched by Tommy Denander sound like the balls have been strangled out of it? For fans of Mecca, Radioactive, Pride of Lions are other Toto-esque AOR CDs that just don't rock enough for me. Mature, safe AOR. At least this is a notch above the last few Heartland releases.

|A fine album, nicely produced and some great songs. Lost Angels is very interesting indeed, almost as good as Mr Perrys own version. Koogles is spot on, this is mature , safe AOR, that although its very good, it doesn't rock quite hard enough.

|I'm back !!! Dear Koogles and dear Chris : tell me what's wrong with releases like Pride Of Lions or Mecca ? ! Not rocking hard enough ? ! Joking ? It's AOR after all, not hardrock ! There's a big difference between pure AOR and hardrock ! And bot POL and Mecca are perfect AOR, the way all AOR should be played ! A lot of people think that Journey is the ultimate AOR act : well, I don't agree, but do they really rock ? NO ! Only more rocking record is Frontiers, the rest is safe,like this, not ba

|Es un album de muchos quilates, si se hubiese editado en 1987 seria considerado como una grandisima joya... 9'5/10

|Great stuff, with some real quality tracks. However it's beaten well and truly by his magnificent debut (listed elsewhere under 'Jim') which has better songs and production. This is still pretty essential though. Am delighted to hear he's back with Alien, but I still prefer his solo stuff...
||Date: August 13, 2004 at 11:34|
|Hey Tim,Jim-debut or Jim-Full Circle,it is definitely the latter.On the plus side,ALIEN,bring it on.
||Date: August 31, 2004 at 9:32|
|Listened to this earlier on.Simply stunning piece of AOR....
||Date: August 31, 2004 at 10:18|
|A good release, though nowhere near a fave of mine. I really love the ballad, 'I can't go on', but I'll take the debut Alien album thanks. Good AOR, but not really my cup of tea.

|Geoff,a good mini-review/reply.And no little digs at Tommy Denander.You must be mellowing Sir....

|Simply, one of the best recordings I've listened lately. Vocals are amazing, and the line up is high quality!! Uno de los mejores discos que he escuchado en los últimos años. Una voz excelente, y unos músicos experimentados y de gran técnica. Con una producción realmente buena, es un disco que apetece escuchar en cualquier momento.

|I'm tryin'to find a better aor release than this one but it's really difficult,maybe impossible!!that's a marvellous supermegamasterpiece!!I think songs as"now we cry","I will never..."but expecially"falling in love",one of the best aor song as always!!!Thanks Jim Jidhed,you're GREAT!!!!!!!!
||Date: January 12, 2005 at 17:36|
|To z4roxx.I agree,this is a superb piece of high quality A.O.R.You only have to see who's on it to appreciate how good it is. !!!

|man, well there been lots of great new albums with not so great production, this is not one of them, this is a fantastic production and clear.crisp sounding disk. All songs are wonderful from start to finish, a good one!!!
||Date: August 28, 2005 at 12:19|
|so ay word on the Alien dark eyes coming, there r a few samples on rock report!!!!

|One of 21st Century AOR's finest moments. Falling In Love, I Will Never Leave You Now, Full Circle, I Cant Go On, Now We Cry...oh to hell with it....they're all ACE! Quite suprising that Atenzia released this one as they generally swing in a more modern direction. Well all I can say is that the boss must have been on vacation because this is 100% 80s style AOR. Sheer Brilliance. 9.5/10

|Buen disco de aor sin embargo la versión de Lost Angels no es tan buena como la del grupo Raine.Tengo una copia de un disco anterior pero no tengo el titulo alguien sabe como se llama?.
||Date: September 9, 2005 at 15:40|
|This is absolutely fantastic AOR heaven. On the second or third spin it just grabs you and doesn't let go! My personal favourite is 'I'll be ready then'. The production makes even the one, maybe two, fillers appear top notch. Sincerely hope this guy records another solo record of this quality.

|Me quedo con el Jim Jidhed de ALien..
||Date: February 13, 2006 at 19:21|
|Maravilloso y olvidado disco d este fantastico ex-cantante d ALIEN.. Una autentica gozada, hay momentos q no parece q sea un disco del 2003 sino d los 80'. Me encanta, Recomendado!!

|Just amazing!! Tommy Denander does a perfect production and playing job!!! I love this album!!!

|Si te gusta el trabajo en la producción de Denander pues esto va a ser una joya para tí sin duda. Lo resaltante acá es la voz de Jidhed, recuerda horrores a Steve Perry y los temas la mayoría con un aire a los JOURNEY lo cual me parece fantástico sino fíjate en temas como "Someday", "Now We Cry" o "Lost Angels"(De S.Perry por cierto), temas que son mis favoritas pero si tengo que escoger solo un tema.. "Wish You Where Here" sería sin dudar, que delicia de canción!. 9/10

|El bonus japones llamado "Playing With My Heart" está realmente excelente, a la altura de los demas temas. Este disco es sin dudas uno de los ganadores del 2003.

|I was completely blown away when I first heard this and I still think it's one of the best Swedish AOR CD:s ever.

|I have to disagree with some of you about this album. Not a bad album at all, In fact there´s a lot of quality in the songs as well as on the production. Great Keyboards, Good style which i think is a mix between latest JOURNEY, the MECCA album and a little bit of westcoast. BUT ¿Where´s the classical voice of JIM JIDHED? It sounds like there´s another singer instead of Jim. I consider that every singer has his vocal style which is one of the elements to recognize them easily... well

|in this album, it seems like Jim was listening a lot of Steve Perry´s albums. The influence was so big that Jim´s Voice sounds here in a very very Steve Perry style and i think it is a big mistake IMO. I think most of the songs, despite of their good musicianship work, lack of Hooks, i think some of the songs doesn´t have efectiviy. Anyway i think "Silence of Your Heart" and "Lost Angels" are great tracks. His first album is a lot better!!

|A good album that bubbles along nicely with pop inflections. There's not a lot here to be offended by and plenty to enjoy. 82/100
||Date: March 21, 2011 at 8:24|
|I had this one for a while and decided to get rid of it. Jim has a good voice, but the songs just don't do if for me. The production is a little weak as well. Just feels a little sub par all around for me, seems to lack heart. I don't know how to describe it, but not a keeper for me. Sorry.

|Nice album overall..if it is great or not is a matter of personal tastes(according to some comments above)...as for me goes it passed the test with high notes ...my faves are "I Will Never Leave You Now"(killer song!),"Full Circle"(nice & catchy modern rock sound song),"Anyway You Want It","I'll Be Ready Then"(mega ballad!) & "Falling In Love"...the voice of Alien surely delivered quality in here...recommended...87/100

|This is what Alien 'Dark Eyes' should have sounded.
