"Underneath a falling sky" is the ultimate track on this very solid hardrock/AOR affair! Tony Harnell sounds better than ever! BUY!!

From: Carmine Rose Date: March 21, 2005 at 18:46
Rather different from TNT, but what TNT has, this album has something else that totally makes up for it. It's the heaviest CD that has Tony Harnell has ever done. Would I recommend this? Yeah I would, every song is great except "Light At The End Of The World." Other than that, this album is just absoulutely exceptional.

From: bob Date: March 21, 2005 at 19:45
Pretty good new effort from TNT's lead singer....and it's a mix between Westworld and a heavier TNT. To fullfill this group Tony got together with Magnus Karlsson, the axeman from Last Tribe(Sweden). Like the other reviewguys says...go and get it......NOW.

From: MelodicMan Date: March 22, 2005 at 17:57
Good, but with the names involved in, I was expecting a little more. The power ballad "Days Of Confusion" is a great song, a highlight, but there are other good tracks like "Underneath A Falling Sky" and "Crushed", and 2-3 fillers. A heavy TNT is a good definition, and of course Tony Harnell is the star. Recommended and pretty good, but not a masterpiece IMO. But I just can't agree with that Masterplan comparison from another site...

From: jessica96fish Date: March 29, 2005 at 7:15

I'm not sure it's all that much more heavy than TNT, especially with Harnell's vocals, that lightnes up even the heaviest riff. Not in a bad way mind you, it is what it is. That being said, although I REALLY dig this, it doesn't have quite the same caliber of hooks that TNT was capable of. I've only listened to it twice so far, so maybe I'll change my mind after a few more listens. Definitely worth getting though if you like Harnell's voice.

From: Swriter Date: March 31, 2005 at 21:54
man, my absolute fav so far of 05 without a question!!!!! This is a great hard rock/metal album, great vocals from Tony of TNT, fantastic guitar work and a cool touch of keys. A bit heavier than TNT but very original in all aspects, favs are Die for You, Lies, Crushed, Cradle, and Save Yourself. I think the two strongest songs that blow me away are the ballad Days of Confusion and the middle of the road beautiful Light at the End of the world. This is a 10/10, classy metal release!!!

From: TIM (2) Date: April 16, 2005 at 13:14
Have been living with this one for a while and I really like it. Very powerful with a huge in-your-face guitar sound, but with pretty melodic tunes and some great use of keyboards. "Break My Bones" is an incredible tune, better than anything off the last TNT IMO, and "Days of Confusion" is a great power-ballad. Generally the first half of this is light years ahead of the second half which really tails off with 3 fillers at the end. If this was a 6-tracker it might get a full 10, but... 8.5/10.

Un album solido, su sencillo "Lies" es simplemente GENIAL,es una pena que estos grupos nunca sean tan publicitados porque su calidad musical es excelente. Chequen la rola "Underneath A Falling Sky" una gran pieza musical. Se lo puse a un amigo y los comparo con "The Rasmus", lo cual no me parece en lo mas minimo.

From: AOR freaky Date: April 29, 2005 at 1:52
Fantastic hardrock release, this one and one of the best releases of the year so far ! Recommended stuff ! Maybe a certain BIG TIME thinks this is shit again !

From: Geoff Date: June 9, 2005 at 1:25
Well, it's been a while but it's finally time to comment. Whether this is an excellent release or not was never the question - it is. My only delay was in discovering whether I personally loved it or not. And although it's not as hook friendly as TNT or Westworld, I have decided I love it. Massive riffs, very consistent song quality ('Lies', 'Days of confusion' and all of the first 6 tracks, as well as 'Turn it off' are faves, but all are very good) and great vocals, as always. Recommended.

From: ROBERT Date: June 9, 2005 at 9:56
MUy raro q yo able d un disco Novedad...pero es q DIE FOR YOU merece q le exen d comer aparte q pedazo d Cancion!!!!Os la recomiendo pa irse d Festa!!

From: swriter Date: July 23, 2005 at 10:55
Hmmm, I find that this one did not stand the test of time with me, very good one but, I find myself playing the new TNT from last year that is in the top 5 of 04, not sure why, Tony's voice is great on SBreaker but a bit different from Tnt, looking forward to the new TNT in September, maybe we have another contender!!!

From: swriter Date: November 4, 2005 at 21:16
not sure why, but this one hit me right off the bat, then it didn't hit me, now it hits me pretty steady now for a few months, one of the greatest voices ever!!!!! I feel this is not so heavy afterall, and melodic, it has been a grower for me, one of the years top releases. favs after all this time are, 1,2, 3, 4, 7, 9, and 10.

From: sluss528 Date: April 6, 2006 at 8:36
to prog. sounding, not melodic at all and very boring!

From: Lennie Date: September 7, 2006 at 15:44
Agree with the comments that the first half is definitely stronger tha the second. First 4 tracks are killer esp 'Lies' and 'Break my Bones' - both feature awesome guitar breaks..in fact the influence of Karlsson is evident throughout with some keys touches very close to Allen/Lande (or the other way round?). Quality release though and as usual Harnell sounds a million bucks. 8.5/10

From: juan carlos Date: December 14, 2006 at 22:46
Ajá aparecieron, ya era hora, bueno ....... nada jeje ahi nomás lo dejo. Sobre este disco pues decir que está muy bueno si eres de los que tienen la mente abierta. La producción fenomenal y el hacha Karlsson de lo mejor del disco. La 2,3,4,5,7 y la 9 son mis favoritas. Tony Harnell sin ser de mis cantantes preferidos lo hace muy bien. Recomendado. 8.5/10

Jajajaa.. De donde saliste pinpollo? solo ví un comentario(??) tuyo en el disco de Evenrude. Este disco lo tengo original amigo y haber si te dedicas mejor a comentar discos, si es que puedes claro, en vez de estar hablando sandeces y media. Y si quieres insultar, mandar chiquitas y demás ya sabrás a donde no? y como buen chupamedias, digo como diría tu maestro(jeje) a menos que seas un pollo jajajaa... Saludos.

Se ve que lo tuyo no es el respeto pero si mucho de ignorancia ehh.. pues ya no voy a pisar el palito tío. Eso es lo que te enseñan tus maestros(¿¿???) ehh alumno? la verdad que das pena ehh muy patético lo tuyo.. saber de donde vendrás, derepente del sitio que dices que venimos, pues lo tuyo es puro insulto de lo mas bajo ehh.. haber si aprendes a insultar con mas elegancia y no ser un ignorante mas. Saludos pollito.

From: ehyder Date: April 3, 2007 at 19:44
Pretty good album! Sort of Queensryche mixed with TNT and european Melodic Power Metal. Some minor criticism with the sound dynamics (which are a little compressed) and the tracks tend to be too samey after a while. But there is some really solid stuff in here. Recommendable.

From: DeL Date: November 12, 2007 at 5:34
Fantastic album! Forget the lame TNT, this band holds the future!

Ummm...good album,yes..but it did not kill me at all...respecting all the comments above(as usual) but even that i enjoyed it,i found that it sounds Dream Theater at certain parts or at least in these 2 ones "Days Of Confusion" & "Light At The End Of The World"...Tony's great as usual and the rest of the musicians are really skilled ones...so we have a balanced album...the best track for me is the AORish feel one "Turn It Off"...the rocking opening "Die For You" and the pretty catchy "Lies" are also highlights...89/100
