Existing comments about this CD

From: Fernando Brito Date: March 26, 2001 at 15:00
This album has as high-quality of contents as ever, and it goes without saying that the sentimental melodies are fill of beauty. Furthermore the power and the speed which lead a HR style is blended in a good balance. The ballad tune track 4th as well is melting in this album and is not obstructing this album's flowing and its tension. In general this album has much in common with an orthodox function, therefore I look forward to seeing their live show in the near future.

Long time fans may think the material isn't as strong as previous work, but by the time you reach the end of the album, there is no doubt in my mind you will be happy with what you got. Most of the album rocks hard with only Love Is Gone, Don't Wanna Be Alone and Say U'll Stay heading into softer territory. Good ballads too.

Again this sounds a little like routine, but this is miles ahead of the previous release. Even if every song is not covered in sincerity, these ones actually sound bloody good! I can honestly say there are not too many tracks I dislike here - all the ballads are killer, awesome melodic rockers like 'No love's enough' is in plentiful supply. Great release, I must say.

From: Blaze Date: September 1, 2004 at 12:06
I dare to say: It's the best album of all times. Killing good!!! JSS is the king! No one could do better...

From: z4roxx Date: February 20, 2005 at 19:52
Oh mate,another killer release from Takara.An awesome band indeed,a must for any melodick rockers!

From: JF Date: April 27, 2006 at 21:01
Para mi gusto nada del otro mundo pero tiene sus buenas canciones y no va a ser con el gran Jeff. Hace unos meses vino a Lima y realmente dio un show muy bueno a pesar de las dificultades en el sonido, muy divertido. Ahora que nadie diga nada de la produccion, realmente me sorprende, el sonido es tan pobre y pagar por cds que no son nada baratos por lo menos deberia tener un nivel optimo y sobre todo si aca esta el Sr. Soto.

My favorite Takara record. The songs are the main attraction on this one although the performances are top notch as well. I even like the ballads, and I think most ballads suck out loud.

From: juan carlos Date: July 26, 2010 at 16:18
Wow Great Melodic HardRock/AOR with nice keys. JF spots on right here, no one says nothing about production that has a very Average sound but musically this is probably my favorite Takara Album, many great songs that could be my favorite track but i love the whole album despite the production. Recommended! 8.7/10

From: 123charpenay Date: July 5, 2012 at 12:42
hum really sorry but i am not agree with others comments.this record is average not bad ok but decent not more.the production could be better. the sounds of the keyboard ?oh oh i have the feeling to hear my son clément when he was small play keyboard toy at chrismas.the sound of the keyboard is limit ridiculous and have nothing to do in a hard rock record.the voice of mr soto is like always exceptional but i am not really hooked by this cd.a great cd ok but not a classic not a jewel.no reason to wake up in the night for it.the japan import have two bonus tracks one great the other bad.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 29, 2013 at 22:30
This is an album that gradually grows on you...ok the tracks are most of them good pieces of AOR structured ones but in my case it took me a couple of "spins" to have a definitive statement about it...and the answer is...yes!!!...third album and the band's still delivering catchy songs indeed ..."Blind In Paradise" & "Lookin' Out" are my faves but also tracks 3,4,5(solid mid tempo)& 6...85/100
