Craaft toughen their sound and back off on the keyboards for their second album. The approach proves successful, despite obvious comparisons to Bonfire or the Scorpions. "Jane" is a particular highlight: an absolutely MONSTER ballad that should have been a hit!

From: Carl R. Date: March 5, 2003 at 6:55
A good melodic rock band with catchy harmonies & hooks. Nice guitar solos compliment the songs.

From: Scandinavia Date: August 26, 2003 at 12:53
Searched for this for a long, long, long time & finally found it...Hmmm...I GOT FUCKIN' DISAPPOINTED!! Just don't expect it being nowhere near the S/T which was fantastic...This is better than average though...It just lacks diversity & where's the great keyboards??

From: Reno Date: August 26, 2003 at 16:39
I liked this one equally as well as the first dispite the sound change. The guitars are great here as well as the melodies. Illusions is my favorite track on the CD.

Along with the debut - one of the best Hard rock releases to come out of Germany (Along with Bonfire's - Fireworks masterpiece). Huge arrangements, catchy choruses and the super ballad ' Jane' and the Steaming heavy AOR of 'Runaway' & 'Gimme What You Got'. Bloody marvellous!!!

a great time for germany. This is an example of how a product made just for german domestic market, can have an international level. unfortunatly the support of the label at the time was near to zero outside germany. I hope that the people at ulftone records in berlin will take in serious consideration a reissue of this one cause the original one is now near to be a collector item.

a german rock gem.if you like this try out their other tricks just kicks.or the band roko.sound very much like these two class albums...

From: TIM (2) Date: July 2, 2004 at 10:35
For me this is their best album. A touch rockier, but still a load of keys and big choruses that's very similar (although still not quite as heavy) as ROKO's S/T. "Running On Love" is huge, great keyboard intro and probably the best track. "Jane" is pretty close behind though. Excellent CD, and if you see their first and third albums cheap snap them up also.

Es ist eine super CD. Ich habe zum anhören persönlich von Klaus Luley die CD bekommen. Wir waren damals 1998 gemeinsam auf der Kur in Allgäu ! Ich würde mich freuen, wenn er mit mir Kontakt aufnehmen würde. Ich würde mich tierisch freuen. Meine E-mailadresse lautet:

"Gimme what you got" is a killer tune and "Run away" is just a melodic rock gem. These german guys know how 2 rock !! Awesome cd i think. 9/10

From: SCANDI Date: May 7, 2006 at 14:29
My favourite tracks are "Run away", "Jane" & "Running on love". "Jane" seems to be an clear rip off from Boston's "Amanda". Tracks 1 & 6 are high-pitched and interesting in song structure, others are just average hard rock where the pronouncion is on 'hard' & 'average' with a too less melodic touch. For me it's an 8/10 album at best.

From: Melodiker Date: August 2, 2006 at 19:19
Dieses Album ist Craaft`s Meisterstück.hier reiht sich Knaller an Knaller.Richtig gute Mucke,die Spass macht.Anspieltips zu geben ist hier schwer,weil halt alle Songs klasse sind.Hmmm,vielleicht doch die Power Ballade Jane ! 9,5/10

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: October 22, 2007 at 19:22
Escuchar este Albun es estar en el paraiso es un Super Disco, este es el stylo que a todos nos hace feliz. vaya que tremendo albun con una melodia para dioses, que sonidos de teclados, la voz, todo, temas pulidos temas de un altisimo nivel. Dios mio escuchar "Right To Your Heart & Illusions" joyas de HardRock con mucho despliegue de misterio desde el inicio al fin, y mi tema favorito "Running On Love" junto a los temas con un stylo AOR Chance Of Your Life y Something For Nothing demoledores!!

Great album from germany rockers

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 14, 2011 at 22:22
A monster follow up to their already wonderful debut!!!...solid songs with that typical German way of doing rock music...the first 3 tracks are just killer ones("Run Away","Twisted Up All Inside" & "Chance Of Your Life",this last of the 3 is marvellous)plus some other "essentials" such as "Illusions"(powerful mid tempo),"Are You Ready To Rock","Right To Your Heart"(catchy song with a nice talkbox used in the guitar) & "Something For Nothing"...highly recommended album...94/100

From: hair metal again Date: November 19, 2018 at 3:05
excellent release for CRAAFT back in 88 with a massive commercial hard rock sound ,fine melodic lines and remarkable songwriting!"run away","twisted up all inside" and "chance of your life " are the highlights ,but the rest is also remarkable !highly recommended ,as it is full of great hooks and keeps the interest almost in every tune!

From: yamaha94 Date: October 9, 2019 at 1:40
Fantastic from start to finish. We need to get one of these two albums on the top 100. These guys are criminally underrated!
