|A real gem, and several levels better than their first album IMO, great production, guitarplay (vintage Tommy Denander) and use of keys. Favorite tracks : Embrace, Brilliance of the Drugs, Indulge, Without Love, Everything Fades and The End.

|Not too blown away after 1st spinif truth be known, but now after 5 or 6 plays I have gotten to really like it. Typical Denander quality throughout & as usual, Tommy's exemplary playing is a high point throughout, check out 'The End' for one great example. This does sound a little different to the debut 'Standing Tall' disc overall, so those expecting a carbon copy may be disappointed, but I think on the plus side to that, 'Embrace' has more depth & variation on offer. The Robin Beck duo of 'Just A Momentary Why' is a terrific song and one of the highlights here, followed very closely by the acoustic based 'Blood In My Veins', the aforementioned 'The End' & the excellent title track. This does miss Christian Antblad's input which made the debut so good (really look forward to hearing his solo album which should be out soon)& one mark deducted for the Drum machine on certain tracks, but otherwise 'Embrace' a very good, fresh sounding modern AOR record which gets a big big thumbs up.

|YUCK! YUUUUCCCKKK!!! Sorry guys, just hated this. I got this and the debut at the same time and I have to admit I thought the debut was pretty decent. A lot of fillers, but some good tracks too. This, however, I just thought was horrible. I'll admit I didn't give it more than a couple of spins, but that's two more than it deserved. Boring, hookless AOR, imo.

|I can't help dreaming about what this had sounded like with all 3 singers from the first album. Only Kristoffer Lagerstrom is still here and that still works very well, but it is not the same as before. Apart from the absens of two great voices the songs are not really as good as on the first record neither. But this is still a decent album well worth to give some spins.

|Very well produced AOR/Westcoast, with lots of hooks, licks, vocal harmonies and great riffs and solos by the brilliant Tommy Denander. The drumprogramming is also very well executed. I love the voice of Kristoffer Lagerstrom.
