Cool album, Soto is great on vox.

From: pavel Date: December 24, 2002 at 5:53
Definately the best Talisman album unless the forthcoming Cats&Dogs don't go beyond my expectations! Hope it does!

From: DENIS (BRAZIL) Date: May 11, 2003 at 19:20
Man, if you're looking for a real fresh and unusual hardrock, this is your chance. This is a masterpiece!! These guys are blessed! They are heavy, the songs are really amazing and they really know how to use their isntruments!! Jeff Scott Soto is one of the best singers in the world definitely!!! Great solos, great songs! PERFECT!!!

From: Rycheage Date: March 11, 2004 at 22:55
There are lots of musical highlights here - the album has very few weak moments (if any). With “Humanimal”, Talisman re-wrote the book and earned themselves a definite place in melodic rock history. A fantastic album, though definitely not one for the purists.

From: mauricio Date: April 27, 2004 at 21:01
el mejor album de talisman. muy superior a los anteriores tanto en composición como en arreglos. canciones virtuosas con mucho ritmo, pero que en ningún momento descuidan la melodía. fabricated war, lonely world o tainted pages son canciones vanguardistas en el estilo hard rock. con este album nos mostraron que aún no se inventa todo, y siempre hay caminos nuevos y fusiones que hacen simetría al 100%

From: pozermaniac Date: April 28, 2004 at 11:40
Check it cause this is one of the best hard rock albums ever!Jeff you are the only one!

From: Eugenio "Waite" Date: May 15, 2004 at 13:26
Vanguardist, yeah.....but Blissful Garden, All and All and, above all, Seasons are right up in melodic rock heaven !!!

From: Geoff Date: August 27, 2004 at 2:45
Not my favourite of the Talisman collection - more straight ahead hard rock than the melodic side I'd enjoyed earlier on, but it is a good hard rock release, if you prefer the less spectacular side of the song.

From: AHUEA Date: January 14, 2005 at 13:34
Like the funky parts, but i prefer the hard rock, best track is Humanimal, great lyrics

From: Padre Karras Date: May 5, 2005 at 16:48
Simplemente, BUENISIMO. Posiblemente, el mejor disco de Talisman.

From: DANTE Date: June 29, 2006 at 10:33
Coincido con algunos comentarios. Para mí el mejor disco de Talisman. Un tanto extraño, pero impresionante. Marcel Jacob está que se sale con el bajo, y, además de Scott Soto (un genio), tenemos una superguitarra con Fredrik Akesson. De principio a fin es una gozada de disco. Obra de arte.

From: Figge Date: July 30, 2007 at 15:25
The best Talisman album. Brilliant is the word! Marcel's trademark basslines along with Fredrik's guitarplaying is hard combination to beat and Jeff Soto puts on one of his best perfromances ever put on disc. Awesome!

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: August 15, 2007 at 19:47
Gran disco de Hard Rock de corte innovador con esos temas de influencia Funk, fusiones, en fin, un disco un tanto diferente y que en ese afan de lograr diferencia no descuidan la realización de excelentes melodías y composiciones brutales tales como: "Fabricated War" y "Tv Reality"... un muy buen disco a tener en cuenta

From: juan carlos Date: August 29, 2007 at 0:17
Nop, para mí el 1º es el mejor de lejos. En este disco hay mucho de cosas Funk que no me parecen nada mal y la mezcla con el HardRock le sale bien. El bajo se nota mucho gracias a Marcel Jacob todo un capo en la materia. me quedo con "Humanimal" y la suave "D.O.A.P.S". "Since You've Gone" es una balada acústica buena y la romanticona "Doin' Time With My Baby" ok. 8.3/10

From: petermexico Date: July 31, 2009 at 14:59
este es uno de sus mejores trabajos, después del primero uno de mis favoritos, grandes estos músicos y una lástima que Marcel haya tomado su vida, descanse en paz y queda como tributo su música que siempre fué excelente

From: hair metal again Date: April 24, 2013 at 7:06
