Goran Edman is without any doubt the champion that takes higher this band. This album is more melodic than their 1st and the band is more consistent even in the songwriting, "Give it Back" is the premiere example. I love this album!! If you're Goran fan don't miss it!!!!

From: ROB GARCIA Date: March 18, 2004 at 11:38
i do love goran edman's vocals but in this case i'm afraid not,he seems to be out of tune at times and the crap production doesn't help much either.quite dissapointing really.

From: Dean Date: November 27, 2004 at 13:00
Just seen the video from "oh rendezvous" and while the song is really good, i had to cringe at the sight of Goran Edman. In the vid he makes early Poison look manly. Now i know where Gary Cherone stole his look from. Visuals aside, I'd have to say the rest of the band is def just as talented as Edman. I think I'll be seeking these two discs out.

Goran Edman rules...

From: tokioblade Date: January 27, 2005 at 5:10
No es un mal disco pero tampoco es el mejor del muNdo,lo mas interesnte de este disco es la voz de goran edman, que me parece un excelente cantante...es un grupo QUE EN MI OPINION NO ESTA MAL ESO SI SI BUSCAS UNA PRODUCCION INCREIBLE, NO ES TU DISCO..ES UN DICO REALMENTE RARO DE ENCOTRAR,PERSONALMENTE ME SUENA MUY NWOBHM,AUNQUE SE TRATE DE UN DISCO DE HARD EN TODA REGLA..BUENO UN SDALUDO TOKIOBLADE@HOTMAIL.COM

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: July 16, 2005 at 19:48
Good Work, no tan bueno como el anterior, en las mismas lineas aunque mas melodicos pero estan ok, de acuerdo con Tokyo Blade, saludos chavales.

From: Wacke Danzig Date: July 15, 2006 at 8:14
Wow....compare this with "Diamond Mistress" and you'll see that this one sucks!

From: Magnus Date: March 31, 2007 at 21:29
Göran Edman is one of the best singers on this planet! Wonderful Scandi MHR Only released on cd in japan!All the other stuff that you find is bootlegs..

From: metalmastermusic Date: June 5, 2007 at 9:32
This album is not as good as their first by any stretch. They took a more mellow approach overall. That is not always a bad thing but there are no songs that really stick out to seperate it from one anothr on this album. A decent album but just never found a song that made me want to just listen to this over and over again. Good if yo can pick it up for under $8 bucks. 6.5/10

From: erik Date: June 9, 2007 at 6:34
This is very very blend. Nothng lasting here. like metalmastermusic wrote no song that stands out. not really one. nice for collection but thats it. 6,5/10 is right.

From: z4roxx Date: June 12, 2007 at 12:42
Sorry Erik but I think this is another good release from Madison even if in this one G.Edman is immediately came back at your very very mediocre levels as always IMO,only in the debut he has sung in a decent way..This second and final Madison's chapter is maybe a little weaker than the first one but it's more mature and consolidated in sounds and it's more Treat oriented(I mean first Treat discography).I can give to it 8/10!BTW I am really surprised to appreciate this band after many years....

From: Mustaine_TW Date: August 23, 2007 at 22:43
Two great songs in this album "Oh Rendez Vous" & "Shine", the other aren't as good as the previous album in my opinion 70/100.

From: VICE Date: October 15, 2007 at 6:15
"Diamond Mistress" were fantastic & "Best In Show" is almost purely trash! It has it's fine moments like "Oh Rendez Vous" & "Look In Your Eyes" but the rest is pretty much shit... Only worth buying if you're a real die hard fan... With this realease, Madison were doomed to death & they quit pretty soon after this was realeased too...

From: Zoner Date: July 12, 2008 at 14:39
Don't listen to the metalheads this one is really good! It's very melodic and the very known song "Give it back" in Sweden is the best track on this disc. You should get the Swedish version which has both albums on one CD and it's not a bootleg. It was released in 1993 by a Swedish record company and it's very rare! That one and the Japan versions are the original versions and other stuff are bootlegs. I'll give this album a 9/10. I respect anyones taste but we have our own opinion.
