This one is great.Guitardriven hard and melodic metal. If Fifth Angel were an british band, they would have made an album soundig like "One strange night". Only the CD bonus "sick and tired" are not my cup of tea.

From: Leykis101 Date: September 13, 2005 at 11:19
This Cd is just hard, I cant believe more people havent heard this kick ass disc! it simply rocks, just good clean driven, hard rock, if you find this pick it up, Fight, and waiting are my favorite songs, but the entire cd is good from start to finish, no fillers here.

From: Geoff Date: September 14, 2005 at 0:18
Cracking melodic hard rock release. They remind me of Fifth Angel and American Angel also. Awesome riffs, great musicianship... not much more to say other than own it!

From: z4roxx Date: September 19, 2005 at 11:38
Awesome cd!No fillers but all great songs!I give 10/10 to Excalibur.They have also an ep but I am searchin’for it since a long time….

From: Kip Date: October 24, 2005 at 12:52
I can't believe I'm gonna type this, but this is what Lillian Axe should have released instead of 'Psycho'. This album is all melodic rock with awesome axework to the perfect degree. If you liked Lillian Axe's Poetic Justice, get this now. The first song starts off extra heavy and I was wondering what the rest would be like, but the rest of the album isn't as intense, concentrating on melody and songwriting over speed and agression. Amazing disc from beginning to end. What a find. 9.8/10

From: juan carlos Date: May 12, 2006 at 11:06
Gran melodic metal. Grupo con influencia de muchos, canciones en su mayoría metalmelódicos y powermetal como la 2,4,5,9,10,11 pero tambien con temas Hardrock melódicos como la 3,6,7 y hasta una semi-acústica buena como "carole ann". Este album simplemente rockea como dicen y es que las guitarras son las que lideran el album. Mis favoritas son la 2,3,4,5,6,7,8. Atención a los arreglos tecladísticos en algunos temas, Muy bueno! y se los recomiendo a todos sobretodo a los melodic metalers! 8.7/10

From: juan carlos Date: May 12, 2006 at 15:52
Me olvidé mencionar otro tema superbueno como "running scared" con teclados a mitad de la canción y con un magnífico solo, muy bueno! y la 10,11 están en una onda mas fuerte a lo Omen, Metal Church, Running wild, Laaz rockit, etc. que no están nada mal.. En general un gran album super-recomendado.

From: shooto Date: June 20, 2007 at 8:38
efectivamente cuando empiezas a escuchar el disco con fight dices vaya me equivoque de estilo. si powermetal duro pero con calidad luego va bajando la intensidad de los temas. yo me quedaria con el tema 5. round and round en onda mas hard y con esos arreglos de teclados como dice juan carlos.luego esta running scared tremenda, y para cerrar el disco 2 temas igual de duros q al principio 7/10 muy interesante si os gusta la dureza como running wild.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 21, 2007 at 3:07
Great album, eso un Gran album de pie a cabeza ya no es tiempo de poner estilos ni nada por de eso por mi parte me basta simplemente decir si el album es bueno o no y si lo recomiendo o no y este yo lo recomiendo asi que tu que estas leyendo ni siquiera lo dudes si El Fenix lo dice es por algo no necesito decir mas mi puntuacion 9.5/10

From: Heavy.AOR Date: June 21, 2007 at 11:11
Yes this is really great Hard Rock/Melodic Metal album.Album from year 1985 "The Bitter End" not bad but not that great.9/10

From: DEE CEE Date: June 9, 2008 at 5:55
What happenned to these guys??? I still have this on vinyl from new. Shame there was no other release's..

From: shoemaker Date: February 5, 2009 at 13:08
As Heavy.AOR told, they made an EP in 85, called THE BITTER END. It´s more in the metal mood,not as good as "On strang..", but also a strong work.

From: george_the_jack Date: May 3, 2009 at 14:12
80's hard rock/metal at it's best! A true brit jewel!

From: andi Date: October 24, 2011 at 14:01

From: juan carlos Date: October 24, 2011 at 20:46
Wow andi, tastes clearly differ here, but hey, doesn´t matter mate! i respect different opinions but this CD is Great for me. Rock On!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 24, 2011 at 21:23
HAHAHAHA!!!.. ...do you really respect different opinions Juan Carlos????....HAHAHAHA!!!!...this is DEFINITELY one of the funniest and ironical comments i have read in a long time....

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 31, 2011 at 20:50
Now talking about the album...nothing to kill for IMHO...just a standart British Melodic Metal band...best cuts for me were "Waiting","Round And Round","Frozen Promises","Early In The Morning" & "Running Scared"...70/100

From: andi Date: February 14, 2012 at 8:08
killer hardrock!!!

From: Delbert Date: April 30, 2014 at 14:09
An absolutely fantastic melodic heavy metal album. Every element is played to perfection! Heavy at times, lite at other times, melodic, catchy, speedy, slow, they do it all, and they do it to perfection! In the vein of early MARSHALL LAW with hints of LEATHERWOLF at times. Another one of my favorites and I highly recommend it.

From: Leykis101 Date: April 5, 2015 at 23:13
Seem to pull this disc out frequently, was in a serious debate the last 3 days, over rather or not I should go ahead and just fuck with the songs a tiny bit, get the volume levels up to snuff, and see if I can't fill in that bottom end bass sound a tiny bit, that is the one and only thing that is wrong with this release, it's almost a mystery to sit back and think about what the mastering engineer was really doing while he was supposed to be mastering this album, it's levels could definately be raised, and it would make this disc go from ultimate to legendary, thats how bad the volume is on it, it gets a pass so much cause of what historic songs it has, but even historic songs can only be heard at what they are for so long, before they are questioned about what you know they can be, if the band aint gonna get on it, guess i gotta do it for myself!! oh, BTW, if you never heard this disc, your a fucking retard, and you needa walk into on coming traffic!!
