Another great release. They seem a little harder edge than the Future World era. Still a rocker.

From: Asd Date: March 2, 2002 at 5:06
Everybody, just listen to the song "Sin-decade" absoutely incredible, amazing, unblievable, the song is fuckinī unbelievable. This band is fantastic. Another fgreat song is "Nightmare in the neighbourhood". GET THIS BAND

From: ROBERT Date: October 21, 2002 at 10:11
PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME que version tan acojonante d una de mis baladas favoritas de toda la historia del hard /aor. tengo q decir q para mi el resto del disco esta a aņos luz de esta version, los veo un grupo heavy mas , por eso alucino con esa pedazo de version, para mi este tema vale por todo el disco!!

From: r.s.-rocks Date: February 17, 2003 at 23:04
denmark`s finest. this album reminds me of the best time of my life. lot of party,women and beer. wild and crazy nights. the titlesong is over the top.

From: RR-Finland Date: August 27, 2003 at 7:28
When I first time listen this record, I dinīt like it very much at all. After couple of times I started like it little better, but never enough. To "Asd", Sin-Decade has great opening and damn good start for the track (thanks to Alan Owen) but it goes away after 1 minute

From: Kimhp Date: September 3, 2003 at 18:02
I love their version of "Please Don't Leave Me"! But besides that, this is not one of my PM faves... There are some standout moments, but the songs are not as catchy and memorable as some of their earlier work. Get "Future World" and "Jump the Gun" first!

From: Reno Date: October 5, 2003 at 21:17
I agree with most of the comments here. This is a very good cd, but not their best. Still worth adding to your collection if you're a PM fan.

From: Scandinavia Date: December 29, 2003 at 9:30
Produced by Flemming "flim-flam" Rasmussen (Metallica)..Thus the heavy sound...Very persistent album! No weak moment whatsoever...

From: GlenRavine Date: March 8, 2004 at 11:20
Not bad at all - hard edge - somewhat - but still have that melodic feel. Enjoyed it.

From: Geoff Date: November 22, 2004 at 19:56
Now this is where they developed the sound they have used from here on in. Half balls-to-the-wall type rockers and half melodic gems. Fortunately the melodic gems are just so outstanding that the albums remain brilliant. 'Nightmare in the neighbourhood' and 'Come on tough', 'Who said money', 'Credit card lover' are all KILLER hard rockers. 'Know it ain't easy' is my fave and chills me today with it's perfection and the cover of 'Please don't leave me' is my second fave. Essential CD!!!

From: headbanger4life Date: November 29, 2005 at 6:23
Yet another awesome release by these Danish rockers. I really can't say enough about this band. The guitars rockin' and hard edged and the vocals are clean. (To me) Ronnie Atkins vocals are very original and not comparable to anyone else. These guys just stand out so much to me and that's why I love their music.

From: z4roxx Date: November 5, 2006 at 11:10
Again,immense band,one of my fave.Not a single bad release(except the last one)on their long and great discography.This one is another powerful work,great vox and riffs with catchy arrangents.9/10.

From: rbrigade Date: August 30, 2008 at 11:32
Wonderful album! There are a couple hard rockers I don't really like much, but the heavy ones Running out, Sin decade, Raise your flag, In the flesh are perfect. And the AOR highlights Know it aint easy, Please dont leave me...perfect too. Come on tough come on nasty is the sleaziest thing they've ever done, love that one too! Atkins is simply awesome here. His voice is unbelievable! Did I tell you I love Pretty Maids? Well you've figured it out I guess...9/10

From: DangerCountdownCZ Date: October 29, 2009 at 17:20
This is the first Pretty Maids‘ album I have ever heard. I always confront the rest of their discs with it (even older albums). And I still think, that "Sin Decade" is their best. They have never served similar melodies. The Songs "Running Out", Nightmare in the Neighborhood “, "Know it Ain't Easy", "Please Don't Leave Me" are the matters of my heart. Za deset. 10/10

From: hair metal again Date: October 18, 2010 at 2:49
excellent release by PRETTY MAIDS back in 92.different than their great previous release,in a heavier direction but without spoil their melodic edge.standout songs are "know it aint easy","please dont leave me" and "come on tough come on nasty".very good indeed

From: Ydol eM Date: November 3, 2014 at 17:01
I must admit that the first "touch" was a disappointment to me at that time being. The reasons were simple: the fantastic preceding albums and the lack of a significant element of their music up to then - keyboards. Despite that it was still the first European league of melodic hard n'heavy music. Thus if you like PC 69, Bonfire or Heavens Gate (IMO) you might value this good but a bit harder "stamped" effort. 80/100.
