A great follow-up after losing Yngwie. Steve Vai does a fabulous job here. The direction is similar, but different due to Steve's influence. Once again the focus is songs with catchy riffs. Stand out tracks are 1-4, but all are really incredible examples of musicianship.

From: rodrigo Date: March 15, 2002 at 17:49
Este album es bueno, pero por mérito de Grahan Bonnet y no por el virtuosismo de Steve Vai, que para mi gusto quedó en deuda, al igual como lo hizo con David Coverdale en Whitesnake...

From: Patto Date: March 31, 2002 at 0:30
La banda es de Grahan Bonnet, pero basta un pequeña muestra para demostrar la personalidad de un gran músico como lo fue en ese álbum y lo sigue siendo aun hoy. (Me estoy refiriendo a Steve)

From: tracy Date: April 22, 2002 at 3:05
i had this record a while back. i think it could've been better, not saying that graham bonnet is not a good song writer its just that he was trying to combined metal with pop and it doesn't mix, but that doesn't mean that disturbing the peace from alcatrazz is not a jewel of its own. its a classic

From: Bobrome Date: April 24, 2002 at 1:16
This album is really a classic of the 80's! It's the only album of this group that I still listen to...Steve Vai has doing a wonderful work and the songs are so great. A must for every Rock Fm amateur.

From: Guru Date: July 1, 2002 at 18:47
I first heard "Wire and the Wood" in a compilation album twelve years ago, and the opening melody stuck in my head. Vai used the same lick in "Answers" from "Passion and Warfare". I got this album recently from Vai's Secret Jewel Box. I love it. All the songs are awesome, and Graham Bonnet has a golden voice. A hidden gem of an album, indeed.

From: Yngwie Malmstee Date: August 20, 2002 at 0:10
This album is much better than any of my albums with Alcatrazz.

Gee Yngwie, it's really quite the opposite of what your reputation would lead me to believe for you to admit that Steve Vai's take on Alcatrazz is better than yours. I still like yours better anyway. Although I certainly admire Mr. Vai's talent, I've always thought he was too..."noodely" for lack of a better word. You always seemed to have much more feel where Steve concentrated on technical ability. Thanks for posting though Yngwie, glad to know you're still out there.

From: xavi mendez Date: September 4, 2002 at 5:33
absolutamente sensacional,toda la banda crea en este discazo una fuerza,poder y feeling dificilmente superables,sin lugar a dudas:OBRA MAESTRA.

From: rossa Date: September 4, 2002 at 9:26
totalmente de acuerdo con el colega anterior,creo que es el mejor disco que he escuchado en mi extensa existencia.

From: Sebastian Date: October 11, 2002 at 18:00
Steve Vai es realmente uno de mis favoritos , en este cd se nota el toque creativo que Steve le pone a cada CD en el que participa.Yo diria q es uno de sus mejores trabajos

From: ozzman Date: November 2, 2002 at 3:13
Nobody sings like Graham Bonnet AMAZING!!!! Check out the live stuff from this tour Vai & the band were onto something great, too bad there was not a follow up CD or at an official live release.

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: December 9, 2002 at 13:43
Es un buen disco destacando voz y guitarras pero que si fuese por los nombres el disco me parace flojito. Por ser Vai y Bonnet les pongo solo un 7.5/10

From: ken Date: December 10, 2002 at 18:57
i meet steve vai back in 1999 and i had him sine this one this one is in my top ten.

From: Gar Date: January 17, 2003 at 21:09
Wow! This one still sounds great. Again their lyrics really stand out from the other bands of the time. Check out the anti-MTV sentiments of "God Blessed Video". This band was ahead of the times.

From: Bilboker Date: March 20, 2003 at 11:12
Muy buen album, pero me quedo con el primero.

From: visitor Date: August 20, 2003 at 4:47
The video of "God Blessed Video" is hilarious with all its parodic elements of a typical MTV video of that time! And the song itself is great!

From: robert Date: February 5, 2004 at 22:03
Buen grupo, buen disco, buenos musicos, buenos temas... 7 d 10!!

Vai is an excellent musician, this is a good album. Not as good (in my opinion) as anything with the maistro, though. Still, add this one to your collection.

Of the 3 (studio) Alcatrazz releases,this is the by far the strongest,although opinion may differ depending on if you're a Vai Fan (which I most certainly am) or a Malmsteen afficionado (Some good albums but not in the same league). The first album, while good, suffered from the lack of real quality in the songs, a problem that this certainly doesn't have. 'God Blessed Video', 'Will You Be Home Tonight' 'Wire & The Wood', 'Mercy' all outweighing the material on 'No Parole' and 'Dangerous Games'.

From: z4roxx Date: January 6, 2007 at 11:27
I had to hear this one for 10 times to appreciate it ahaha!This is very good cd,I think their best even if I didn t listen to”dangerous game”yet.”Wire and wood”is one of the best 80’s song IMO.Never liked G.Bonnett voice but it’s not a problem here.9/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 22, 2011 at 22:55
Very good album by Alcatrazz and one of the best ones ever recorded by Graham Bonnet(vocally talking)...Steve Vai in here taking the vacant left by Yngwie M....best shots 4 me are "God Blessed Video","Will You Be Home Tonight"(AORish),"Wire & Wood"(rocks),"Stripper"(rocks) & "Skyfire"...recommended...90/100
