I'm just listening to Mysterious (and not only) all the time,playing the riffs and singing and singing the choruses. Long live poser. The new century belongs to posers!I'm just in love with the whole thing...

From: Adam Date: June 1, 2002 at 10:52
Here is the voice that should be a house hold word like Jon Bon Jovi. Jeff really is a great singer and is held back by not being in a "band" for the long haul.With that said, Soto rocks every time out. Don't know where to start, try the Rockstar soundtrack, that will be a great introduction to Jeff Scott Soto

Amazing album from start to finish. Should have been huge and, as usual, Jeff doesn't put a foot wrong. 10 out of 10

From: JoseM(Sev)Spain Date: July 25, 2002 at 10:14
A very good album, Jeff Scott Soto sings great!! ( I'm not agree with the Talisman category. I think Talisman is a Melodic or AOR, but Power-glam...¿? do you think "coming home" and "all or nothing" is Power-Glam? I don't think so. Jeff Rules !!!!!

q buenos estos suecos con el genial norte americano Jeff!! pero por Dios! esto para mi no es power glam, es hard rock con mayusculas!!

From: Xabofar Date: May 25, 2003 at 9:05
¿Power glam? jajajajaja.... This is HARD ROCK (with fucking capital keys) There are a lot of very good songs (Mysterious, Time after time, Coming Home, All or Nothingm U Done me Wrong, If you would only be my friend) and my favourite: Give me a Sign (what a fantastic chorus!). For me this and the first (more aor oriented) are the best of Talisman

From: jayglam Date: August 25, 2004 at 8:21
Absolute incredible kickass rock release. Check out the Time after time, comin home and give me a sign. Every song is killer, but coming from Jeff Scott Soto this is no surprise. Can't wait till he plays here in Australia.

From: Geoff Date: August 27, 2004 at 2:44
This is another good hard rock release, though I still prefer the debut. Yeah, this is a good one I must say! Good solid hard rock.

From: TIM (2) Date: September 8, 2004 at 4:59
For me this is a more consistent release than the debut, and the melodic gems being "Give Me A Sign" and "Mysterious". No keys this time around, but some excellent guitar work and slightly more of a Scandi twist than on other Talisman albums. I don't have the remastered version, but if it's anything like the quality of the debut then it will sound huge. The man could sing an album of nu-breed material and it would still sound awesome. 8/10.

Talisman's second album still remain their 2'nd best album to date. It lack a few bits and pieces song- and productionwise to match the alltime classic debut from the tremendous Swedes

From: AHUEA Date: January 14, 2005 at 13:33
Another great album, a bit funkier, but remains a hard rocker, best track is mysterious.

From: Glen (Lennie) Date: March 7, 2005 at 16:02
Doesnt anyone think this sounds a bit like Whitesnake, esp 'Give me a Sign' ?! Great stuff tho - Mysterious/Lovechild/Time after Time are the best. Soto has definitely improved with time - check out 'Lost in Translation' which beats this hands down. Sorry...

From: DANTE Date: June 29, 2006 at 10:31
Eh, dónde están mis compatriotas???? es que no hay españoles a los que les guste Talisman??? Hace muchos años que sigo a Jeff Scott Soto, desde sus días con Yngwie Malmsteen. Cantante impresionante, con un soberbio bajista: Marcel Jacob. Este es un disco inmenso, con unas canciones supremas. Una gozada. Venga, animaros a los comentarios en español...

From: juan carlos Date: May 3, 2007 at 23:13
Claro que si, discazo. Si "Time After Time" "Coming Home" "ó All or Nothing" te encantan pues "Give me a Sign" (mi Súper-Favorita) y "Mysterious" te fascinarán de seguro. Más duros que su disco debut un tanto AORizados si cabe el término, igual de bueno pero el debut un pelín mejor para mí. Hardrock Melódico del bueno. 8.9/10

From: aorwilko Date: July 19, 2008 at 13:54
Excellent vocals & superb guitar histrionics make this a great album, but "Mysterious" has to be the standout track for me. Great band !!

From: halfordhughes Date: May 16, 2011 at 13:27
their best album!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 25, 2012 at 18:17
With a more rock feel in here and without the spark of the debut album IMO...i mean,is a good effort with some outstanding songs too but it pales if u compare it with the band's first release,a matter of tastes i guess..."Comin' Home" for me,the best track plus "Time After Time","Mysterious","Give Me a Sign" & "Lovechild"...JSS still kicking a** as usual...89/100

From: 123charpenay Date: June 28, 2013 at 11:38
after their extraordinary first record they make an exploit.this second realise is say rick this album is more rock, more hard than their first jewel witch was more fm, more a o r.excellent second effort only hits.only killer songs absoluty no fillers.i recommand the 2003 reissue(remastered) with one bonus track "run with the pack" the cover of bad company and a second record with ten démos songs and one video of mysterious.this record is a classic.i m a die hard fan of the two first talisman s records.hum after not, their others cd s don t hooked me.

From: hair metal again Date: April 28, 2021 at 7:44
a def masterpiece for TALISMAN and probably Jeff s best ever moment ! flawless from start to finish with amazing musicianship and Jeff doing what he liked for the first moment in his career starting to sing not only in the rock metal forms!all the songs re excellent and Genesis is a classic of the 90 s hard rock scene
