From: T-Bone Date: June 12, 2004 at 3:13
This disc is full of Harmonies Galore. In fact, they almost seem very Def Leppard-ish on a few tracks. I had only ever heard 1 Stage Dolls song up until I stumbled across this cd. I went back and got the rest after hearing this. Favorite tunes are tracks: 1,3,4and 5 which os a reworked version of You're The One off The Essentials cd. This version has a little sharper sound to it. Easy 9 out of 10 here.

From: rocky Date: June 14, 2004 at 3:29
absolutely T-bone. by far their best album for a long time, check out "comandos" too. also listen to the ballad "too late for love"

From: glamster Date: June 14, 2004 at 4:44
Woooow!!! What a return! After the smash hit of the compilation "The Essential" (I own it: the remastered versions of the classics are simply stunning!), the band come back with an incredible album, clearly the best release of the band's history. Buy this record, you must own it!

From: thorty Date: June 21, 2004 at 11:17
Buy - or die !!!

From: XLNT Date: June 22, 2004 at 16:39
WOW...Stage Dolls springing back to life with a killer album. Torstein Flakne has a knack for writing hooks that goes straight into you head and sticks to your brain like glue. Songs like "Get a Life", "Everybody wanna R&R" and "Running back to you" are some highlights, but there's really no fillers here. This is the definitive Melodic Rock album for the summer of 2004. Turn up the volume of your CD player and head for the beach. XXXLNT!

From: living abortion Date: June 22, 2004 at 17:56
This is one of the catchiest cd's I've heard in quite some time. Every song on this is great. Highly recommended!

From: TIM (2) Date: June 27, 2004 at 10:03
I do really like this, and it's second best only to the S/T CD, but I'm not quite as excited as everyone else. Opener "24/7" is pretty average, and "Summertime Ladies" is just boring, but it sounds amazing and there is some really classy songs on here. "Running Back to You" could be their best ever track, and "You're the One" is equally great. Definitely a highlight of 2004, and an 8.5/10 from me.

From: rocketron Date: July 12, 2004 at 12:40
Without question their best album to date. What do you expect with Mark Spiro involved in the songwriting and singing backing vocals.

From: Alex Date: July 27, 2004 at 17:23
I had only listened to 3 or maybe 4 songs from Stage Dolls, I got this cd and wow!!! I realized what I was missing!! Stage Dolls rock!!!! and this cd got me back to life and now I have te get their back catalog. Great music, great tunes, yeah!!!! Turn it up and head to the highway!!

From: thelostdj Date: July 29, 2004 at 0:43
Right On Alex!! This is really an Outstanding CD with superb songwriting. IMHO one of the best of the year for it's Genre....a very pleasant surprise from The Stage Dolls.

From: R.S. - Rocks Date: August 14, 2004 at 19:44
Skip the weak opener "24/7" and enjoy the rest. No more to say. This is the AOR album of the year.

From: Geoff Date: August 14, 2004 at 23:03
A great melodic rock release. For me, 'Running back to you' is worth the price alone, and on top of this there are plenty more gems to come. Great CD and best Stage Dolls CD since the s/t. 8 or 8.5/10

This is more like it - Bands Can still release AOR albums like this when they put there mind to it,stunning in all departments. Reminds me in places of Bryan Adams (Reckless era), Def Leppard (in the harmonies) all rounded off with that Stage Dolls sheen. Definately there best release since the S/T and definately THE AOR release of this year so far.

From: AOR freaky Date: August 24, 2004 at 15:10
Indeed Jez, great release, but not the best AOR release at all. The best till now is Stan Bush with Shine. And then we have releases like Over The Edge, Spin Gallery, Final Frontier, Dakota, Renegade, Shadowman, even Ten etc. which are all much stronger pure AOR releases ! And look out for the new Pulse and the new Asia, both killer albums ! Great AOR release, but beaten by many other AOR releases !

From: Wotty Date: August 24, 2004 at 15:40
What can I say Freaky.A list of artists to die for.SUPERB....

From: Jez Date: August 24, 2004 at 21:42
Freaky - Spin Gallery pushes it close, as does Stan Bush, & don't forget the Brilliant Crossfade - White On Blue (i know you don't rate this one before you start), but the Over The Edge is very average IMHO, a dissapointment. The others all strong releases. The Asia i'm still waiting on - soundbites are amazing,but as they are one of my fave bands i may be biased, so i reckon this may change next week.

From: TIM (2) Date: August 25, 2004 at 4:23
I'm completely with Jez on this. Over the Edge is pretty mediocre, Renegade is from about 1985 anyway, the Ten album is a million miles from their first album, and for me the Spin Gallery is not consistent enough. When they nail-it it's awesome, but there's some rubbish on there (like that leftover Mr.Mister song). Stan Bush, Final Frontier, Crossfade, Deacon Street, Shadowman and Stage Dolls are battling it out so far. Have yet to be completely blown away by anything in 2004 though...

From: AOR freaky Date: August 25, 2004 at 5:19
Wotty, Jez, TIM(2) : I can agree with you guys. I couldn't name 'em all. You still have also the now long lost released second Workforce, not bad too ! The only one I really don't like is Crossfade !, Jez ! Too laidback, I suppose and too westcoast. Don't know, but I dislike that one. The rest, O.K. ! And I'm also curious to hear the whole new Asia and also the new Pulse (samples of both sound amazing !). And I agree, we have so many AOR CD's that it is difficult to be blown away by a new one !

From: Joe Staline Date: August 25, 2004 at 10:02
Alright then ! Gentlemen, now we can all come to AORFreaky's house to have a giant "Stoofvlees" party, while listening to all the magnificent bands that he always told us about.

From: AOR freaky Date: August 25, 2004 at 13:17
Damn right, Joe Staline : you're ALL welcome : stoofvlees met frieten of mosselen met frieten ! The choice is yours !

From: Smudja Date: September 8, 2004 at 19:05
Great album. This new Stage Dolls realy rocks. Every track is a clear winner. Buy it.

From: jessica96fish Date: September 21, 2004 at 3:47
best thing they've ever done full stop.this is one of the few that was worth the long wait.unlike hol tesla europe bonfire.all poor to say the least.only the wig wam album beats this one.

From: ayreon Date: October 23, 2004 at 5:36
Great. It's really a great album, good mellodies and rock. Maybe reminds Def Leppard and B. Adams (Waling up the neigbourgs). Maybe one of the best ten albums this year

From: ton Date: January 11, 2005 at 12:33
This record from the Stage Dolls is the very best when you like good AOR. Very good sounding record. Buy!!!!

From: Swriter Date: February 5, 2005 at 11:14
thanks to this site, I learn about bands I never knew. What a great album, just great melodic songs, strong from start to finish. The focus is on the songs, a must have from 04, why is this one so expensive in the states???? hehehehe

From: oliver Date: February 6, 2005 at 6:54
indeed a great aor release. but partly a little too soft. this could have been the new brian adams cd. but nevertheless, lots of catchy songs and great melodies. 8,5/10

From: Teer Date: July 8, 2005 at 15:34
24/7 is a killer opening track. Very very good AOR release indeed. 8,5/10

From: dcn Date: August 25, 2005 at 20:25
Excepcional album de esta maravillosa banda noruega,muy en onda Def Leppard/Bryan Adams,imprescindible en cualquier coleccion

From: Mediaab Date: December 7, 2005 at 9:09
Even though Dig was a great album, these guys always deliver!, I thought Dig did not have the stand-out killer songs that we are used to (Love cries, Heart to heart, Soldier's gun, Love don't bother me, etc). But when playing Get a life in my cd-player for the first time, I was once more blown away from the quality songwriting of Torstein. This album is just as good as Commandos and S/T, definitely among my top 5 of 2004, awesome and very melodic!!

From: Lovedrive Date: January 6, 2006 at 16:16
No está mal, aunque esperaba un poco más. Mi favorita: "ONLY"

From: Chris_GR_Aor Date: April 6, 2006 at 6:06
With NO doubt this is the BEST album for this great band.If you like good AOR and want to listen to an album full of catchy killer songs just grab this gem.For sure the best AOR album of 2004. "Too Late For Love" & "Naked In The Rain" are pure magic...10/10.

From: juan carlos Date: July 4, 2007 at 11:31
Gran disco, Sonido de primera e impecable, Temas con mucho gancho y con la voz de Torstein Flakne no te puede ir mal para nada. "Running Back To You" muy buena àla Bryan Adams, la baladita "Someone Like You" me encanta. "You're The One" con sonido actual y bien POP a lo Bryan Adams(de nuevo? Sí y en varios temas) igual es un gran tema. "Too Late For Love" vaya temazo, mi favorita! "Naked In The Rain" Wow!Mi 2ºFav. y así. Mi 2º disco favorito de Stage Dolls(Commandos mi fav.) Buy or Die! 9.5/10

From: rocknroll Date: May 6, 2008 at 16:34
This the real deal. Great album, great come back, 8.5/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 10, 2009 at 20:15
Far behind were the days of "Commandos" & "Stage Dolls" (who does not remember the great song "Love Cries")anyway 2 get 2 the point,this album is simply a Rock released (not Aor or Hard Rock)with perhaps some kind of Bryan Adams and John Cougar Mellecamp feel 2 it (listen to "Don't Fight It"..is John Cougar by the 4 sides!).The songs are more or less in the same line so as i said..a Rock released..good for some for others quite normal...as for me goes...a good one!!!.85/100

From: qwest Date: July 12, 2009 at 9:39
U could refresh that photo!! dont u think so guys? Eellent cd by the way.

From: hair metal again Date: August 25, 2015 at 10:07
classy release by the great STAGE DOLLS with the band showing that they can easily write down great songs with plenty of hooks and a nice rocking vibe!the production and the musicianship are excellent ,though i d prefer bigger guitar solos !"too late for love" is a classic STAGE DOLLS hit and "runnin back to you","someone like you","naked in the rain " are remarkable too!i ve been with them since the late 80 s and never been disappointed

From: 123charpenay Date: August 27, 2015 at 13:08
stage dolls is certainly one of the more underated hard rock band of the world.this record is exceptional.tracks 3.6 and 8 are three atomics bombs.three hits which deserve to play on radio several times by day.i m sure if peoples who don t know our music listen this cd ,they will be a o r freaks.no fillers only killer songs.top class hard f m.i m agree with hair metal whith this norvegian band we are never disapointed cause all their records are excellent (exept "dig" in 1997).but in this darkness time many melodic rock bands made a shit record(def leppard,y&t,vixen,danger danger ,ect ect).unfortunately "get a life " this marvellous cd never see the light of day in japan.

From: tomdwa Date: April 12, 2020 at 6:58
Yes, with this one they (finally) hit bull's eye, it's by far their best record, full of great melodies and hooks and almost no filler. Too late for love is the winner here, but closely followed by Running back to you, Get a life, Someone like you, Naked in the rain, Everybody wanna rock&roll and Summertime ladies. Very good, cristal clear production too!
