Fantastic new album! Check out 'love will come again','skin on skin' or 'sorry'-all great songs with fantastic hooklines. Not as good as their debut album but close behind.Buy it!

Essentially this is a very commercial melodic hard rock album. The songs flow seamless into each other, creating a really easy listening album, while maintaining all the hard rocking elements required of a talisman album. Sharp bass playing, lots of solos, Jeff Scott Soto at his raspy best and some very catchy rock songs. Recommended for fans and newcomers alike.

De lo mejorcito que ha salido este año aunque no llega a la altura de los dos primeros. A ver si se pasan de gira por aqui en breve

From: Pablo Date: October 21, 2003 at 4:58
Great album. Maybe the best of Talisman ever. Beautful melodies, powerful voice, superb guitar solos. Everything is premeditated, every sound is in the right place just where it should be. There is also so characteristic bass that everyone should know from Humananimal album. For me it's perfect.

From: Rycheage Date: March 11, 2004 at 23:03
Overall, very impressive, especially if you are a Jeff Scott Soto fan. Despite ‘Outta My Way’ being one of the worst things I’ve heard in a while, the rest of the album pushes the right buttons for me. I can’t imagine any Talisman fans feeling let down, and yes, that includes all of you who thought the last couple could’ve been better. Do yourselves a favor and check it out.

Bilboker, de donde sos?

From: fernando Date: January 11, 2005 at 7:21
i feel JSS is the best rock singer by far, that´s the reason i bougth this cd.I´ve followed his career since 1986 ("marching out" with Yngwie).However, i have to say that i find this one quite flabby and easy to forget.that´s it man.

From: AHUEA Date: January 14, 2005 at 13:37
This is the real Talisman, I think this is the album where Marcel Jacob plays his ass off

From: juan carlos Date: May 3, 2007 at 22:57
Buen disco que se requiere de varias escuchas, gran producción, buenos solos, varios temas contagiosos y como siempre la excelente voz de JSS. "Sorry" grandiosa melodía, la mejor del disco, "Wherever,Whenever,Whatever" mi 2º fav. y "Lost in the Wasteland" mis favoritas. No lo mejor de JSS con Talisman pero recomendable. 8/10

From: z4roxx Date: June 17, 2007 at 12:10
That's the real gooder cd after"Life"IMO,also the vein is the same as their 1995 release.Great production as always,fantastic performace by M.Jacob,I think 8/10 would be a right rate here.

From: hair metal again Date: April 26, 2013 at 6:17
