|Basic AOR, but very good. The singer Daniel Zangger Borch sounds wonderful but allways semes to remain in a low range. Would realy like to hear him pitch higher. Good songs, good playing but wont go down in the historybooks.

|NOT QUITE AS GOOD AS THE FIRST 3 RELEASES BUT IT HOLDS IT'S OWN WITH OTHER AOR ROCK BANDS. A 8 OUT OF 10. THE SONG..... NUMBER ONE I VOTE AS THE BEST ON THIS RELEASE. STILL FIRST CLASS PLAYING.

|Se nota que falta Pete Sandberg, aunque Daniel Zangger Borch no lo hace nada mal. Este es el mejor disco de los que canta Daniel.

|EVERYONE out there that can find Best & Rare-GET IT! Smoking guitars.The guy is every bit as good as John Norum & has some Yngwie type runs-I could NOT believe it when I heard it!

|Change of singer to Daniel Zangger Borch doesn't lower the quality of the music, just the vocals, as he brings a bit of a bluesy style to the band. This album, known also as III, is an excellent piece of melodic AOR!

|Schöne CD,aber auch sehr ruhig ! Aber was soll`s,es muss ja nicht immer Vollgas gegeben werdn ! 8,5\10 ! Geht nicht sofort wie die ersten beiden Alben in`s Ohr,aber nach ein paar Durchläufen merkt man schon,das man ne tolle CD in Händen hält !!!

|For my liking, this is where Alien faltered. Poor songs, boring album. Hard to believe the first two albums were of the same band name and song writer? I don't know how much Tony Borg wrote on the first two, but judging by this one assumes he had a lot of assistance. Very, very average release from a once great band.

|Terrible production, but a pretty good set of tunes. I actually think this was their 2nd best behind the debut. Opener "Take Me to Heaven" is just brilliant, as is "Standing Alone", but then there are tracks like "Let's Go Dancin'"... If you can get over the mess of a production/mix there are some decent tunes on here.

|Not bad, but because the singer's low voice the songs seems the same. The guitar is under-mixed too. Not even much middle freqs. But at last!!! REAL DRUMS!!! My faves are "a little ain't enough", and "a world full of dreams"

|I just listened to this CD. Must admid "Song of a renegade" is a very interesting one. Listen to this! It has a feeling of a traditional fair. "Strong like a warrior" has a keyboard arrangement strongly reminds me on ABBA. --And what's the mess with "Let's go dancing"..? I recommend this album to all lovers of Scandinavian AOR. I, personally, never liked the debut too much. So this is surely different but that doesn't mean it's worse. Good musicianship. Voice is not my thing either. 7,8/10.

|Mir gefällt die Scheibe sehr gut.Das Problem ist,das man sich erst mal an die Stimme des neuen Sängers gewöhnen muss.Das ist mittlerweile geschehen.Ein anderer Minuspunkt ist die schlappe Produktion ! Ich habe der CD viel Zeit gegeben und muss sagen,das es sich im Endeffekt gelohnt hat ! Schöne Platte ! 8,5\10

|En mi opinión este es un gran album, claro, no tan directo y lleno de feeling como el primero, pero tiene sus temazos caso de A world Full of Dreams(mi favorita)donde los teclados son mágicos y llevan de la mano a la canción,todos los temas tienen lo suyo desde la inicial un medio tiempo que te engancha pasando por la segunda otro temazo con un riff de guitarra melódico matador!,Just a Man balada con un feeling atmósferico que te envuelve, y los solos,ni hablar sino escuchen el final de My Love

|Tremenda Joya del AOR, con sonidos muy agradables y una voz muy elegante, temas muy penetrantes y magicos porque asi es este albun magico temas como "Strong Like A Warriors!!s y "A World Full Of Dreams" con unos toques de teclas impresionantes... vaya que Joya!!!

|Their 3rd best album, only behind the debut and the last album 'Eternity'. The production is better and more audible than the previous album 'Shifting Gear' - it doesn't mean is it that good. But the album itself is filled with great melodic songs, great choruses and keyboards. The singer isn't as good as Jim or Pete, but he's ok. 'Take Me to eaven', 'Standing Alone', 'A Little Ain't Enough', 'Strong Like A Warrior', 'Song Of A Renegade', and beautiful ballad 'Just a Man' and the ultra-catchy 'A World Full of Dreams' are my favourites. The japan release of the album there's a live version of their hit 'Only One Woman'.
