|Still can't believe my ears. Paid the jap import price for this one, cause I found their first one good. But this ? My God : must be the worst AOR ever ! How Frontiers (a quality label) can release this, is beyond me. Very weak songs and then the production !!!!!!!! No words to describe how bad the productions is ! Worst 'production' EVER (I even wonder if this is produced, a third-rate demo sounds better). Never heard such a bad production and that in 2005 ! No, AVOID, or you loose money !

|Sure on their first only three songs impressed me ("OVER AND OVER AGAIN"-> good MelodicRock; "THE ONE" & "GOING HOME"-> nice ballads) and I think it's not worth paying "big" bucks for it. It sounds a little bit to modern (and moderate ha..ha..) to me. 4,5/10

| the big problem of this album is th horrible sound that kills the cuality of the songs. I think it's the worst soun i've ever hear in an AOR-MELODIC ROCK album. But after a few times, you'll forget it and will enjoy the songs. Es un buen album pero el pésimo sonido lo enmascara. Sinembargo, después de varias escuchas, se consiguie disfrutar de las canciones, que las hay bastante buenas. 7/10

|AOR Freaky is spot on, this is a lame effort given the musicians involved. I quite enjoyed their debut, and when the ex-Europe gang left to waste their time with a half-arsed reunion then I was looking forward to this album even more than the debut. But it sounds terrible, particularly Erlandsson's vocals. I could forgive the production if the songs were good, but "Heat of Emotion" is the best track and there are better versions of it on Fair Warning and Zeno albums. Avoid. 4/10.

|well, I wasted money on this one cause I heard the first was pretty good, should I try again with the first???? thanks

|Hey Switer, I haven't heard this one, and have no plans to but I do own the first one and cannot recommend it at all. As bland and average as AOR gets, and if everyone is saying this one is even worse I suggest you just forget about this band. There are many better out there - spend your money elsewhere. Word has it the Zero s/t CD is to be re-released shortly Best news I've heard in ages!

|Hey Swriter, The first is better, and the production is better, but it still isn't as good as the big-name personnel would suggest it should be. Get the re-issue of the PEO album (if you don't already have it) instead.

|no empieza mal pero se desliza hasta el muermo total. DE todas formas ni el primero era tan bueno ni este tan malo. POr fin la gente se da cuenta de lo que da Frontiers de sí: cada vez menos.

|Great tip from TIM(2), swriter ! Listen to his advice !

|All I can do is echo the comments concerning this and the debut.The muso's on the two albums deserve better than they released.Personal taste is a major factor in the opinions !!!!
||Date: September 22, 2005 at 18:35|
|Although I do prefer the first one, that´s not a bad album at all. But the problem is that at the ends gives you the sensation of boredom. 6/10

|Yeah, the production on this CD is sub-soundbyte. Like a soundbyte coming through a telephone receiver made from yesterday's soup can. BUT, there is one great song here that deserves to be heard: "Up in Paradise". This song is so catchy that even the piss poor production can't stop it from sticking in your head like a William Tell arrow that misses the apple. But most of this CD does miss the strike zone, so take a trip to "Paradise" and then move on.

|Yo no lo veo tan malo. Anda muy parejo con el primero (ok, la produccion nefasta), tiene sus temillas..

|Well, this record has been deadpanned more or less, and to a point I can understand why. The production is easily the weakest among the band's albums and Mikael Erlandsson's voice does sound strained at times. BUT, my criticism begins and ends there as the songs are...FANTASTIC. "Brand New Life" offers a beautiful, haunting melody and features a fabulous chorus. "Lost In You" also has a strong, melodic chorus and is just a cool rocker. LAD's interpretation of "Heat Of Emotion" contains all the signature hooks and is well executed, but Erlandsson sounds his weakest in this track and thus I also favor "Fair Warning's" version. The tear-jerker "So Much Love In The World" is among the top 2-3 ballads I've heard within all of Erlandsson's work and is the clear highlight on this CD IMO. The catchy mid-tempo rocker "Up In Paradise" and the acoustic ballad "(Always Be) You And I" are also immediately memorable....I'd say that's a pretty good return on investment for a $10 CD

|Okay, so I very nearly didn't check this album out after reading the comments but I'm glad I did. The production isn't great but it isn't nearly as bad as some of the comments suggest. It is rather dry sounding so it doesn't have the usual big Hard Rock/AOR sound but the sound is clear enough and most importantly the songs are really great! Mikael may not be at his best vocally but I felt that was part of the charm, that could just be me though! Overall I think this is a stronger album than the debut.
