Great melodic rock album here !! I didn't quite get into it right from the start, but after a second and third spin it really hit me. That Michael Bormann can sing we all know from his Jaded Heart times and J.R. Blackmore proves that he was very successful learning guitar from his father Ritchie. Nice riffs, hooks and melodies. Recommended !

Sheer brilliant production & a wall of melodic/hard rock sound here. Everything on this cd rocks to the tenth power. This is done by the book yet with a sense of conviction & purpose. Surely the melodic rock world could have survived without it but make no mistake, the genre is better off with it.

Oh my, I love his voice! I've buy this album today 9.5/10

Surprise!! I had no idea Bormann sang on this album.

Escuchando los samples de la re-edición lo han hecho muy bien ya era hora ante tan buena música hecha aquí, lástima que solo tenga la copia de este disco pero con la primera edición y el sonido es malísimo. Grande Bormann aportando su extraordinaria voz en este disco bastante melódico y con ratos speedicos y fuertes. Tengo que comprarlo con la re-edición SI o SI. Buen disco.

Excellent release featuring Ritchie's son and the fantastic vocals of Michael Bormann! Swazi nails it on the mark! I believe there was another 4 trk ep that was released a few years ago which is also damn good, too, imo! My rating 83/100

From: Delbert Date: January 1, 2010 at 20:27
Featuring Julian R. Blackmore, the son of Richie Blackmore, on guitar and JADED HEART, LETTER X, CHARADE, SYGNET vocalist Michael Bormann's awesome pipes, this is one you won't want to miss. In your face melodic rock that is a pleasant blend of BONJOVI, RAINBOW and JADED HEART. All the elements of a top release that will thrill your inner ears!!!!
