superb ,like brother firetribe with more bite maybe a bit longer lasting in the memory stakes ,will play over and over again

From: Heavy.AOR Date: October 14, 2006 at 18:11
BRILLIANT 9,9*/10.Haha ha "Pekka Ansio Heino" is a really vocalist "Brother Firetribe" but this album really more bit but not GREAT like a "Brother Firetribe".For me "Brother Firetribe" still best of 2006.

Even though this features Brother Firetribe vocalist Pekka Heino, that is where the comparisons really end with the 2 bands. Whilst the BF release is squarely aimed at the AOR/MR market,this is definately more in the Melodic Metal category & a very very good disc it is. I prefer the first half (especially the opening salvo of 'Fifteen Years' & 'Superstition') + last track 'Gone', but it is all pretty cool throughout. Of the 2 releases, Brother Firetribe wins it, but this isn't that far behind.

From: TIM (2) Date: October 17, 2006 at 5:22
This is nothing whatsoever like the BFT album. I would never have recognised Heino's vocals he sounds vastly different here. There are some AOR & Prog elements, but this is Melodic Metal - albeit with a ton of keys sprinkled over the top,& follows a very similar songwriting pattern to that of Masterplan/Threshold etc. It's brilliantly played & produced,& the artwork & packaging are superb. It lacks one real killer standout track IMO, but otherwise is highly consistent & a 2006 highlight. 9/10.

From: Aorforever Date: October 22, 2006 at 12:43
MELODIC METAL! Great keyboards and vocals. 'Gone' is the greatest song! 9/10

From: CARLOS-ANNA Date: December 7, 2006 at 8:16
Muy buen trabajo de este grupo.buenos temas con fuerza y garra, buen cantante asi como una solida composicion melodica,a destacar el cuarto corte Dreamworl que es de lo mas completo del album. recomendable!-carlos(anna-valencia)

From: Clayton77 Date: January 1, 2007 at 11:22
Brother Firetribe is great but this one is BRILLIANT!!!! For me the best 2006`Album and it keeps me in the "Dreamworld"!!! A MUST HAVE!!

From: Lennie Date: August 20, 2007 at 11:52
Brilliant and possibly better than Brother Firetribe. Opener 'Fifteen Years' is hard hitting gem (great guitar solo), fantastic guitars as well on 'Horizon'. 'Dreamworld' and 'Follow Down that River' continue the excellence. 'Stranger' sounds like Magnum, 'Marching to War' is a fav with a great keyboard solo. Vocals are awesome throughout. Just a great, excellently played melodic metal album, with borderline AOR choruses. Definite highlight of 2006!

From: george_the_jack Date: May 31, 2008 at 11:53
Melodic metal band that because they belong to AOR heaven, they are promoted very very strong......and I find everywhere I look in front of me! No guys. This is average melodic metal and even now, I cannot understand why they are on top and why ''AOR Heaven'' signed them. Are they AOR? Noway. Anyway, I heaven't heard their new release and I do not want for the time. The reason I'm posting here, is that I want to complain about the unfair promoting of some bands (like this one) and the ''hiding'' of some others that deserve to be on top! Simple things. Money todays make the world go round. I still believe in the pure class melodic rock AOR which always coincidently stays underground and it's coming straight from the heart! Keep the faith.

From: Delbert Date: January 2, 2010 at 19:01
There's no promoting here, we write about what we like and don't like....Check this out: BON JOVI mixed with symphonic power metal. How good can it be? Well to find out you must checkout the total keyboard echoing concerto and thumping bass highpower on this CD. Pekka Heino has mesmerizing Bon Jovi vibes and with the added power of dual guitar backing, you have combustion. Tuomas Heikkinen and Torsti Spoof tear it up with some amazing guitar solos throughout the entire CD and the keyboards by Marko Niskala just make the songs even brighter. Finland has done it again. After BROTHER FIRETRIBE, who came up with a pure AOR/melodic rock album, this is one for the lovers of melodic hard rock as well as the progrock aficionados. I Highly recommend it and it is one of my favorites. Money doesn't make the CD.....music to my ears does though!!!!

Great debut!!!...in agreement with the positive comments above...is like an AORized Power Metal ...Pekka Heino is a good vocalist that gives the songs the effect needed to be between catchy but powerful ones...my faves are "Fifteen Years","Superstition","Dreamworld" & "Sails"...90/100
