With everything going on in the world right now, people have more important
concerns and priorities to deal with, so I am postponing the annual Heavy Harmonies
Donation Drive until later in 2020. Stay safe everyone! -Dan

|Great album! Different from his previous work, though. Darker, broodier, heavier, grungier, call it whatever you want, but the combination with Keeling works perfectly on this material. Not unlike Michael Schenker's "The Unforgiven" from 3 years later. Generally heavy midtempo stuff, with come nice acoustic tinged instrumentals thrown in for good measure. My favourite from Mr. Norum!

|John is one hell of a guitar player.I saw him live when he was in Dokken'and he was on fire.He is definitely underrated and worthy of more recognition .

|Overall a good disc but, track no.2 - Resurrection Time, is one of my favorite hard rock tracks period. Done. He's got a drop tuning giving the pedal tone that extra beef ala Eddie on Unchained or Warren DeMartini/RATT on You're In Love. Very cool solo and rhythm parts. Check it out.

|I'll be trying to sell this on eBay soon so am no doubt not helping my chances, but when you have a talent at playing powerful yet melodic music and wrap it all up in grunge it's just a waste of talent. His first 2 albums were quality, but this (and the stuff that followed) was awful. The acoustic stuff is quite well played, but surely you need to give some thought to song structure as well as mindless fretwork? Crap vocals, (mostly) crap songs. Crap. 4/10.

|'Resurrection time' is killer!!! A riff with balls so large they'd not fit through the door. Absolutely killer and some of Johns best work ever! Oh, just before I go... the rest of the album is a stinking pile of shit, IMO. This is where it all started to go downhill for the very talented Mr Norum... but 'Resurrection time' is still a killer track! Amazing solo too...

|Lo mejor y mas pesado, y una combinación perfecta con el cantante Kelly Keeling y todos los rifs! El cover de Clapton es magnifico! Recomiendo a todos los fans de ojos cerrados!!!

|This was the beginning of his musical change of direction...for some good for some bad...after 2 great previously records came this...well only 5 songs caught my attention...the starter "Inside","Resurrection Time","Shimmering Heighs"(a good instrumental one),"Whose Side Are You On?" & "Halfway Home"(this one being IMHO the most outstading track of the album)...a decent album but kinda forgettable...still my rate is pretty acceptable...84/100

|Great album, love it lot. Very bluesy oriented. It show that john formed the curent sound of Europe today. The track that mostly got stuck here in my mind is Spirit Days. The end solo part is pure guitar solo magic (for me)8/10

|Bad album, very boring if compared to the debut. An attempt to play the shitty grunge sound. I did't like it.
