From: TONI MALLORCA Date: July 15, 2007 at 7:34
que pasa!! solo hay un cd de esta gran banda en la web y encima nadie ha echo ninguna reseña ni comentario acerca del él (hasta hoy) bien,para los que odieis su gran hit "live is life" y por eso no hayaís querido indagar en este grupo he de decir que toda su discografia es cojonuda basica para un buen amante del aor. olvidaos del "live is life" el resto no tiene nada que ver con ese comercial tema.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: July 15, 2007 at 14:12
Very Good AOR album, of course Toni esta banda tiene muy buenas cosas como su album del 87 y este On The Surface, Faster and Faster, Shot at The Top, Deep Inside... y no sigo, sobre su corte Live is Life es un clasico y el video es bien divertido ahora este album es muy bueno casi al nivel del mencionado, sobre las reseñas para eso hay gente como tu para que comente cosas que todavia no se han hecho pero a veces el tiempo es el peor enemigo como en mi caso, saludos 8.5/10.

Vaya como se me puede haber pasado este grupazo Austríaco. Para mí "SOMEWHERE SOMEHOW" es un verdadero temazo de AOR puro, con ese tema tienes pagado el disco. Sobre Opus que no decir, tiene tantos albumes y tanta historia, "Live is Life" es su obra cumbre mas comercial simplemente me encanta pero el que realmente es mi tema MEGA-FAVORITO de ellos es "FLYING HIGH" que temazo tanto en vivo como la de estudio es Fabulosa. Gran banda.

For those unfamiliar with OPUS, they are an 80's AOR band from Austria. Dominated by heavy, bombastic keyboards and lavish harmony vocals, some of the most memorable tracks could be top melodic rockers today although many were originally recorded in the 80's.

From: KurtmanJP Date: May 25, 2008 at 23:06
"Somewhere Somehow" is excellent AOR but the rest strikes me as plain and average.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 31, 2008 at 21:44
They performed live in my country Venezuela back in the 80's when they had this very poppy song "live is Life"...kinda funny...

From: shoemaker Date: September 1, 2008 at 11:08
!Life is Life lälälälälälähh!" This song sucks so much, hope this album is better!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 22, 2010 at 20:36
Surely this release is better shoemaker! absolutely AOR/Pop!!!!..the way we like songs...catchy and with good melodies..."The Curtain Down" is a fine starter,"Somewhere Somehow" superb AOR,loved it! ,"When The Night Comes" is a solid track,"Magical Touch" is a pretty catchy one,liked it,"Get Out Of My Head" is a one,"Very Nice Lady" is a very nice song ,"Pictures All Around Me" is a highlight,"Starshine" is a pleasant ballad & "Over And Over" is another catchy shot...shoemaker forget about Live is Life song (which i like anyway) and get this one!!!.92/100
