good but not brilliant hard rock that reminds me to the band the distance but with a different vocalist

From: Geoff Date: November 17, 2004 at 5:19
Yeah, Rob said it well here. Good but not brilliant. It's well played, solid hard rock and there a few worthy tracks with no real awful ones. Worth tracking down but no big thing if you miss out.

Discazo! lo escucho a cada rato y no me canso. HardRock del que disfruto al máximo. Gran voz de Darcy Deutsch (White Vision) y excelente producción, me gusta tan igual como el de W.V. aunque esto es HR y del bueno. "Read Between The Lines" "Make Me A Believer" y "Looks Like It's Over" son mis Súper-Favoritas y a todo volúmen eh Salvo la 1 que está normalita pero el resto es lo mío. Voz a lo Mike Reno(Road To Paradise), "Missing In Moscow" con riff a lo Bad Co. Súper-Recomendable Rock On! 8.9/10

Pretty good but not great,years ago I did appreciate more this one,now I fond it decent.Voice is only decent,not a killer track,just a good average level here...7/10.

i ve needed some times for loving this cd cause the first time i ve listened this record i don t like the voice of the singer.but after several spins that s ok.like for white wolf the singer never will be the best singer of the world.the very good point of this album is the quality of the production.super sound!all songs are really excellent.no fillers.canadian hard f m as it top.the cover of" for you" track 3 (loverboy s hit) is a bomb.two bonus tracks on the japan import.absoluty no interest an acoustic version of track 4 and a message for japan s fans.why not a message to their girls friend or their mothers?

Haven't gave this CD a listen too in sometime & decided it was time again. Cranking it out on my Alpine System on my way into work this morning, I rememberd just how good this CD was! Back in 96/97 I first heard of this group Pokerface, being a hugh Prism fan I tried to locate a copy of the disc, but to no avail. I then went to the Prism site and sent an email. Darcy Deutsch answered my email and told me he had an extra copy of the disc and would send it to me. How many artist would do that? This CD is excellent! very well recorded great production and all very talented musicians.! A must have to any collection!
