Arena are ex-Bad Habit's Hal Johnston (now Marabel) and vocalist Dennis Radoicic, from Sweden's equivalent of Pop Idol. All I can say is if you loved Bad Habit as much as I did then you probably already have this excellent album. It's slightly softer than the first 2 classic B.Habit albums, and is in the more laid-back mould of their third release. However, one listen to "Take on the World" or "Love on the Line" is enough to have any fan of overblown Scandi AOR reaching for their wallet. 8.5/10.

From: TIM (2) Date: October 12, 2005 at 5:06
Can't believe I gave this such a low mark previously. It is simply THE best Scandi AOR album in the past 5 years. If you loved the first 2 Bad Habit CDs this is ESSENTIAL. "Take on the World" is the ultimate AOR anthem with a chorus that is sheer AOR heaven. Is only the programmed drums that lets the side down,otherwise this is up there with the very best from Skagarack, Alien, Bad Habit. Anyone that thinks this lacks the class of American/Canadian acts is talking out their backside. 9.5/10.

tim,can´t agree. there´s so much excellent scandi stuff out there, but this one sucks. lack of good melodies + vocals. imo not worth buying. 5/10

From: TIM (2) Date: October 12, 2005 at 8:37
Hey Oliver, Fair comment - although I personally prefer the vocals here than on the Bad Habit discs. Anyone wanting to check this out should try Schmankerl Records who are selling this very cheaply....

I got this one, after hearing a Preview track on the Bad Habit 'Revolution' re-issue a couple of years back. It's pretty good all in all, with 'Take On The World' & 'Love On The Line' definately being the highlights, but it does verge on the downright Poppy side of things alot of the time, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but left even me in severe need some guitar action at the end of it's 40 minutes.

Reminiscencias de AOR pero mas orientado al POP. No me gusta el sonido de la bateria. Canciones que se podrían catalogar de hasta bailables en la disco.. No esta mal tampoco pues me gusta en si las canciones, la voz y los teclados pero esa bateria... Canciones que en su mayoría no tienen desperdicio pero le hubieran tomado de otra forma en la parte musical, como que querían acercarse a las masas con este disco que sin ser malo pues como que no cae en esta página. 7.5/10

Hey Hal,what’s the name of this kind of music?I think poppish/dance aor is that kind of music here.Openining track contains true emotional moments,and other 2 songs are very good.The rest is a little boring,too few ideas to make 11 songs,guitar is barely absent,programming reigns supreme here!I hold it only because I love Bad Habit but it’s not definitely my kind of music and sincerely a too poor for my tastes.

Un gran cd. Me quede sorprendido la primera vez que lo escuche por el sonido un tanto pop, pero cada vez que lo escucho me va gustando mas y mas. Tengo dos hijas de 4 y 7 años y tendriais que oirlas cantando "Show Me The Way" en el coche. Un temazo que solo por el vale la pena tener este cd. Atencion al baladon "Heaven" (tambien lo cantan). Se rumorea que para este 2007 sacan uno nuevo. Seguro que lo comprare. Recomendado para los amantes de lo nuevo, hecho con gusto y bastante comercial. 9/10

From: BIG-TIME Date: February 20, 2007 at 15:22
Dude's this is not AOR it's more like when George Michael went from Wham to his solo dance stuff. The thing is I really like it! the vocal's are ACE, a lot better than the Bad Habit era but they are really crisp. If you class this as AOR then Giant are death metal (LoL) I am surprised to see this here considering it has an um chi beat anyway...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 24, 2012 at 16:37
Pop AOR with the right moves...sounds like a "heavier version" of the pop band No Mercy(remember that song "Where Do You Go"??? )...songs that are ok for me are "Take On The World"(nice & catchy),"Show Me The Way"(probably the highlight of the album,powerfull Pop/AOR song),"Love On The Line","Pray For The Children"(nice Pop),"After The Hurt"(nice & catchy)& "I Believe"(nice softy)...enjoyable...85/100

This is not AOR. This is Powerpop. Good songs !
