If you like Evenrude, Sha-Boom, DaVinci, Skagarack, Talk of the Town etc, I suggest you check this out, for a cheap price if you can get it. It reminds me a lot of Evenrude stuff, with very banal lyrics and to be honest they are not as good as any of the aforementioned, but they're okay if you like Scandi AOR.

If you paid $260.54 for this cd you should jump off the bridge now.There is not a track on this that is worth five cents.And to be Category under Hard Rock, there is no truth in that.Only good thing about this cd is the guitar play can play and singer can sing but he is to busy saying ya all through his songs. So before you go out and buy this cd don't say you were not aware of what you where getting yourself into.What a joke this cd was.

Yale Bale doesn't have the level like Evenrude,Sha-boom, Dag Finn or Da Vinci. It's ok. But that's it. I recommended not to buy this CD.

I had commented this album three years ago i guess... I agree with metalguf. Three ok/Good songs but the rest is pretty forgettable in my opinion. Evenrude, Sha-boom, Dag Finn, DA VINCI! are much better than this but by faaaar. 6.5/10

From: kerrang Date: August 18, 2010 at 5:11
fantastic album, much better "aforementioned". only Sha-boom "Lets Party" is in one row with this one. HIGHLY recommended ps: i'm ready easily to pay up to 400 for this one, and, maybe, even more

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 8, 2011 at 21:05
Ummm...is not worth that much guys...$185.72 !!!...pretty average stuff with some highlighted moments but that's just it IMHO...the best cuts could be "Get Movin'(Use Your Body)" & "This Time It's For Real"...maybe the last track which is an instrumental one "Culture Shock","Down To The River" & the "Coolest Cat In Town" offer something but...69/100
