For fans of 1st Avenue, Terra Nova and Zinatra, these guys might appear to be copy-cats, but I think their guitar power is more significant, courtesy of six-string bender Yuri Florentinus. The melodic attack surges forth with the pairing of 'Fool Fool' and 'This Time'. 'Out Of My Dreams' is a mid paced chant-a-minute effort, where a band like Great White meets Def Leppard. Classy stuff.

I got this about 10 years ago from a car-boot sale for 50p, thinking it looked vaguely like a rock band. To that end I was actually pretty pleased with it as it sounds like a harder rocking Zinatra, but it really isnt anywhere near as good as 1st Avenue or Zinatra for me. It's more powerful and doesn't have as many keys or melody, and given I've only ever played it a few times, the 50p price tag probably wasn't that far out!

Hmmm, I can hear the Zinatra comparison somewhat, but in my case, the first time I popped this CD in, the thought that crossed my mind was "These guys sound like a harder edged White Lion". Fred Pieters' vocals remind me of Mike Tramp's quite a bit on various cuts from this disc. This disc should appeal to fans of White Lion, Zinatra, and even Def Leppard; plus, you can usually snag it for a few bucks offa eBay, so it won't cost ya much to give it a try!

Bought this a few years ago & was highly unimpressed. Not a bad album just very formulaic & a wee bit boring. I traded it in!

From: M. Allen Date: July 4, 2004 at 19:36
Fans of slick, polished melodic hard rock with big hooks, catchy choruses, & layered harmony vocals in the vein of Def Leppard, Zinatra, & Idle Cure will go wild for this. Not the most original band of all time, but still very enjoyable. Odds are you won't find too many melodic hard rock fans who've picked this up and been disappointed. It's kind of like the cute kid sister of a hot supermodel...maybe not your first choice, but not something you'll ignore either.

This one is actually a personal favourite of mine. I wouldn't compare them to 1st Avenue as these guys are better IMO, but I guess Zinatra is an ok comparison. I always likened them to a lesser produced Masquerade as there is a similar guitar style. (Killer, that is.) These guys used to be Hot Legs and I think they're Dutch (Mr Koster from Sleez Beez wrote 'Out of my dreams') and as far as I'm concerned this is excellent melodic hard rock with only 1 filler. Massive hooks and riffs!!! 9/10

Just bought it again for 50p so I'll give it another try!

From: John Date: October 23, 2004 at 8:53
Am I the only one that thinks 'Where Do We Go' is melodic rock bliss? I like these guys.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 1, 2006 at 5:10
hey guys what happen here, this album is simple Killer, Melodic Hard Rock del bueno, las comparaciones con Zinatra, Leppard, White Lion son buenas una mixtura de ellos This Time, Fool Fool, Steal My Heart, Too Late To Stop, If You Don't Want My Love... un album muy parejo, otra album desconocido pero eficaz, a ver Jose si te animas a comentar este que pocas veces veo tu experta opinion por aca 9/10

From: BIG-TIME Date: February 29, 2008 at 18:52
Music is great but the singer? come one who told this guy he can sing FFsake. I could actually listern to this album alot but the singing is terrible...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

From: shoemaker Date: March 1, 2008 at 2:21
Listenable but not essential!

From: AndyCODE Date: June 4, 2010 at 7:22
Great album full of hooks, sometimes reminds me Def Leppard, Steeler, Jaded Heart, Stranded, Wig Wam, Zinatra and Paganini (vocal manner only). 8/10

From: hair metal again Date: February 11, 2019 at 2:23
sensational commercial hard rock music for WILD RIDE back in 93 with their sound being somewhere between ZINATRA,SLEEZE BEEZ &FRONTLINE!the hooks are everywhere and the balance between keys &guitar gives this one a fine radio commercial vibe but always with a hard edge that i so much love!the songs are exceptional with tunes like 'love will find its way","this time","dont save your love" and "stop the fighting" !essential
