A supper group?! Well, there's alot of talent here, but I think they chose to ingnore their best judgement. I was truly disappointed. I just love Bonnet's voice. He's still got the pipes. I guess this is a prime example of "it" not just being the pipes, but the lyrics that go with the voice & music. You just expected more... 1.5 for sure.

From: rodrigo Date: January 31, 2002 at 12:13
maybe Grahan Bonnet needs the better musicians for plays, IŽd waiting for the next step

From: TIM Date: June 15, 2002 at 14:48
I have to disagree on this one. I usually hate Bonnet's work, but thought this was an improvement. The musicians are fine. "Hard Feelings" is my favorite off this one. This one has sleazy overtones in places which I think the others disliked.

Poor album nobody wants.

From: Sumo Sid Date: July 27, 2002 at 11:27
Disapointing. Glad I only paid $2.99.

From: Noro Date: August 19, 2002 at 18:08
Graham Bonnet one of the great voises of the Hard Rock. Listen to "Down to Earth" by Raibow and "Alcatrazz" and you'll see how powerful he is.

From: banzai@midwar.c Date: May 1, 2003 at 23:47
the sound is so hard than Alcatrazz, Kullick plays many riff deeps & heavy, Graham still shout & sing very cool...

From: alexx glam Date: August 19, 2003 at 18:57
the songs are ok but the production suks

From: Metal_Warrior Date: November 22, 2003 at 11:35
I admit that i was a bit disappointed also by this album.I'm a big Bonnet fan but it seems that he's a bit tired. He's quite old tho.

From: Metal Pete Date: January 8, 2004 at 18:34
This album was a terrible mistake by one of the best vocalists in rock. I practically gave it away to a used cd dealer. But, I paid high ransom for an Alcatrazz cd on ebay! Don't buy this one, AVOID!

From: Metal T Date: May 26, 2004 at 14:52
If you wanna hear Graham Bonnet' actually sing some metal vocals,instead of some lightweight sh*t,check this disc out.Fans of (radio friendly Bonnet')might be dissapointed .

Always liked listening to Graham do metal'vox and this had em."All Night Long" (an old Bonnet-era Rainbow song),"Hard Feelings" and "Cradle To The Grave" deliver.Bob Kulick also recorded "Breaking The Chains" with his previous band "Skull".----

From: happy2849 Date: January 13, 2011 at 13:33
I have heard better, but I've also heard a lot worse. There are a few tracks worth hearing and it's usually easy to find. While I believe most comments on this sight are accurate, sometims you have to hear it yourself, and make up your own mind!

From: halfordhughes Date: April 25, 2011 at 13:04
Grahams voice is awesome.....out of this world...erupted like a volcano!!!

From: hair metal again Date: July 15, 2012 at 3:09
i do nt really quite understand the negativity with this one!i believe this is an exceptional release with great musicianship and fine songwriting!many hard rock stars (Taylor,Plunkett,Ferrari) took part in it and the result is great songs like "baby you re the blood","we won t be forgotten","afterlife" and "over and over".important release for me!

From: GANN Date: July 17, 2012 at 18:39
Totally agree with "hair metal again" - this record is great - especially "we wonŽt be forgotten" has a melodic chorus i will NEVER get putta my head.
