i want the words of oceans of time

From: Dragonfly Date: December 16, 2001 at 17:58
Soto and Pell are the same as the other 5 pervious releases.

From: Roxas Date: April 13, 2002 at 1:25
I'd buy this album alone for track 3, 6 and 9.

From: David McKenzie Date: August 5, 2002 at 15:10
Dragonfly.....just 2 let u know - Jeff Scott Soto doesn't sing on this Pell opus. Johnny Gioeli expertly handles the vocals this time. "Carousel" totally rules !!!

From: TYNO / BRAZIL Date: April 3, 2003 at 18:22

From: Scandinavia Date: June 28, 2003 at 8:12
"Carousel" is a really amazing track...Brings my thoughts back to early Pretty Maids stuff. Very pleasing to see that good melodies like that can still occur in the 90s. But why are the songs so long???? Too much jerking off if you ask me...

From: Rycheage Date: July 2, 2003 at 20:12
If you like your music a little more challenging and don't mind those European influences and some heavy guitar, I could not recommend better. This album rocks! Hardline fans won't get a repeat of Double Eclipse, but they will get a completely solid hard rock album that should please American stadium rock fans also.

From: mj Date: February 11, 2004 at 7:35
Holy Smokes, this is incredible! The other releses are first class but this is unbelievable!

From: Dave Date: September 18, 2004 at 0:42
Second album i have heard from them and the second album that has impressed me.Something tells me it wont be the last one to impress me either.

From: Geoff Date: September 23, 2004 at 19:12
I think Axel made a good choice in getting Joey on lead vocals. This is a much more consistent album and 'Ride the rainbow' is my pick for this one. Not his best, but probably the most consistent yet...

From: AHUEA Date: September 30, 2004 at 0:55
THIS IS THE BEST ARP ALBUM, it totally kicks ass and rocks!!!, gates of the seven seals is the best track, just listen to the voice Johnny Gioeli must be one of the best singer in the hard rock scene today

From: emi Date: November 27, 2004 at 3:59

From: cherokee1975 Date: December 28, 2004 at 19:26
Impresionante album,al frente Johnny Gioeli y Axel Rudi Pell,buena mezcla para este cd.Para mí el cd más melódico de ARP,como gran fan de Hardline y Gioeli, un 10/10, me quedo con "Carousel" y "Oceans of time", amazing!!!

From: Joan Date: March 3, 2005 at 15:48
Buenísimo. Para mi mucho mejor con Gioeli que con Soto. Un disco atmosférico y envolvente donde los haya..las baladas son increibles..aunque tambien hay cañeras, como mi favorita: living on the wildside.

From: meradona Date: March 3, 2005 at 16:18
esta muy bien, pero prefiero a soto con muchisima diferencia, para mi gusto tiene mucha mas tesitura de voz, pero bueno gioeli tambien en un gran vocalista, para mi el mejor de axel es eternal prisioner. este 7/10

From: chalometal Date: July 18, 2006 at 22:55
El tema 6 es algo espectacular , de lo mejor que he escuchado durante años , axel is the master , gran guitarrista para mi junto con nasty reputation los mejores discos de axel, dicen q es repetitivo pero por eso adoro su musica , si cambiaria no se si lo seguiria escuchando, greetings desde arequipa -peru.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: October 1, 2007 at 22:30
Buenos toques de guitarra y una voz que rompe ventanas... pero como su propio stylo nos los dice un metal Melodic y vaya que si los tiene asi como "Carousel", "Ride The Rainbow" y el mejor tema del Albun "The Gates Of The Seven Seals" Melodic...6.5/10

From: Edu winger Date: November 12, 2007 at 19:00
The best Pell album, IMO. All the songs are amazing, and oceans of time is one of the best ballads that i heard. Welcome Johnny!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 12, 2011 at 13:47
First Axel Rudi Pell album with Johnny Gioeli on vocals!!!(former Hardline)...interesting tracks in the mold that Axel usually delivers..."The Gates Of The Seven Seals"(great track!),"Oceans Of Time"(solid and epic soft one)& "Living On The Wildside" are my faves...tracks 2,3 & 5 stand proud too ...90/100
