Thanks to Delbert for providing the long list of personnel on this one.

From: ROB GARCIA Date: March 18, 2004 at 11:33
i've always been curious about this one ;does any of you heavyweights know anything about this lot? who do they sound like?...etc.

From: TIM Date: March 18, 2004 at 12:13
Rob, go to www.kissmydisc.com. Unfortunately- it is sold. Go to page 2 (Collector's Corner), and about halfway down PJ has some samples of this one.

From: ROB GARCIA Date: March 18, 2004 at 12:24
thanx for your help tim i'll check that out.

From: TIM Date: March 18, 2004 at 12:36
You're welcome. I liked the keys, but not crazy about the guy's voice. I think I'd liked Cornerstone or Galaxy better if I could have gotten them.

Tim-I can burn you a copy if you need it

From: TIM Date: March 18, 2004 at 12:48
Thanks! I'll take you up on that. rio1harris@aol.com

From: Rockhead Date: March 18, 2004 at 13:14
Rob I can burn you a copy too-let me know

From: aorjocke Date: March 19, 2004 at 7:27
Very keyboard dominated AOR with a lot of harmony vocals.I don't like the singer so much, he has a very strange vocalpitch occasionally.But there are some good songs like "Gambler" and "Nothing Lasts Forever". It's hard to compare them...but if I say the same kind of AOR like the first "Zinatra" album, I don't think I lie to much....

From: jessica96fish Date: April 11, 2004 at 9:11
mega rare. german outfit.i think you either love or hate this one.its true the singer does have a strange voice at times.and i can see the zinatra thing too.all in all if you have a spare $100 to spend then buy.or i can do you a copy.

From: Geoff Date: June 4, 2004 at 2:24
I'd call them a little similar to Fate, if I had to pick one band. Although Fate are/were worlds ahead, this is a sort of similar style of writing, though the lyrics are never as good as Fate and neither is their ear for melody or big hooks, but think of a lesser Fate and it's a little close to these guys. I think it's a pretty good CD myself, just not amazing.

VERY GOOD MELODIC HARD ROCK ALBUM.I FOUND IT AND I WANT TO TELL THAT THE SINGER HAS A LITTLE STRANGE VOICE BUT THIS IS THE EXCELLENT PART OF THIS JEWEL.THAT IS THAT DIFFERENCE THAT MAKES THIS ALBUM WONDERFUL.ALL THE SONGS ARE BEAUTIFUL.

GRANDI BAGHDAD!(NON COME SON CONCIATI PERO'AHAHAHAHAHA!!!)CMQ PER I FANS DEI PRIMI SKAGARACK E SHA-BOOM QUESTO E'UN CD DA AVERE...LO ASCOLTATO IL GIORNO IN CUI E'COMINCIATA LA GUERRA IN IRAQ E,CASO STRANO,QUEL GIORNO MI SON ARRIVATI PURE I PERSIA!!!INCREDIBILE DA RIDERE MILLE VOLTE AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

From: TIM (2) Date: March 18, 2005 at 2:56
This is very traditional EURO MHR but with some extra touches thrown in, and some fantastic keys all over it. "Nothing Lasts Forever" is particularly awesome. Geoff's spot-on, if you love FATE's "Matter of Attitude" then you'll like this, although vocally it's all over the place. Great keys & harmonies mean you can just about forgive that though. I've never seen it on eBay so is probably rare (there's a copy on now - but the seller has no feedback so be CAREFUL) but worth tracking down. 8/10.

HYPER MELODIC CD.SOME GOOD TUNES BUT NOT A MASTERPIECE.MAGICE KEYBOARDS HERE.MT FAVOURITE SONG IS DON'T TAKE THE NIGHT TRAIN

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: December 10, 2005 at 10:37
Great AOR/Melodic Rock album, Gran trabajo por parte de estos Alemanes sonando muy Escandinavo con buenisimas inyecciones de teclado, si un album como el de Guardian Angels es muy bueno o grande este lo es aun mas no tan poppy como los Guardian y con mejor produccion, este es puro AOR y Rock Melodico como debe de ser Don't Take The Night Train, Dancing On The Moon, Gambler, Nothing Lasts Forever, Salome, Marakesh Express... Extremadamente Recomendado. como se diria una JEWEL.

From: manny Date: December 30, 2006 at 11:22
Aor/pop-rock, con un vocalista con una fuerte voz y bastante acento aleman.Pocos teclados y con frecuentes arreglos con instrumentos de viento (saxo, trompetas, etc). Similares a DC Drive, en sus mejores temas se acercan a Dominoe aunque sin ningún tema extraordinario. Es un album muy buscado entre los coleccionistas porque solo de tiempo en tiempo aparece un Cd original, pero realmente no merece la pena un gran esfuerzo económico. Para mí 4/10.

From: Aor/HardRock Date: October 18, 2007 at 18:36
Gran album de AOR/Melodic Rock, me encanta este grupo porque esta un tema super buenizimo "Dancing In The Moon" claro que los demas tambien son buenos pero este es mi preferida..

From: Delbert Date: January 2, 2010 at 19:14
This band is very talented and features very catchy, melodic AOR/hard rock. They remind me of bands like ZINATRA and EAST COAST. Awesome singing, guitars, big keys and production make this CD one of the best AOR bands from Germany, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!!!

From: halfordhughes Date: March 23, 2011 at 12:53
this is very underrated album... this is one of the best aor albums....great cd! i highly recommend it too!!!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 16, 2011 at 15:08
I agree with aorjocke's comment(2004)...i think he basically said it all...about the songs i liked the best "Hollywood"(nice),"Can't Stand It","Nothing Last Forever","We Need Somebody To Rock"(rocks indeed),"Don't Take The Night Train","Salome","Red Spiderz" & "Shake It Up,Lucy"....88/100
