Existing comments about this CD

No comments on this one? Well, someone's gotta start: this is a departure from their previous style, and with a new singer. While many are calling this a "grunge sell-out", I think it is still very melodic but different, a bit harder. Some VERY good tracks in "All I do is wait" & the ballad "Soul to Satisfy" & the acoustic "Desert Dessert". Actually it looks grungier than it is. If you liked the change in style on, say, Lepp's "Slang", chances are you'll like this as well. Give it a chance...

I tried giving it a chance... and it made me hurl. This is quite a departure for the band, and "grungy" is an accurate description. In my opinion, only diehard completists need to track this one down...

Best Swiss band ever. Apart from this sorry ass release. Anyways this band delivered some classic tunes. Check out all previous albums. AWESOME !!

From: Erik Date: January 12, 2005 at 8:44
Oh yeah some classic tunes from these guys are: Hot loving nights, Slow dancing in hell, Dont look back, She did a real good job, So damn easy, Go all the way, One shoot to the heart ( stunning chorus !).

From: Geoff Date: March 8, 2005 at 4:16
What the f*ck were they thinking when they hired this vocalist? All the other guys they had were great, but this guy ruins what could have been a decent hard rock album. I don't think this is really grunge, and with Eric St. Michaels on vocals I think you'd have a decent hard rock disc ala Treat's s/t (but worse). 'All I do is wait' is in my top 3 China songs - shit vocalist or not, this song will blow you out of the water. Killer, and the rest of the songs are okay (not good!), vocals are not.

this album is terrible.

From: FTCharlie Date: June 1, 2007 at 0:29
Musik ist Geschmacksache! Und ich weiss nicht, warum all die Rezensenten dieses Album zerreißen! Sicher ist es nicht das beste von China. Aber neutral betrachtet tockt es gehörig!!! Gerade ein Song wie "All I Do Is Wait" oder auch "Bend The Trend" gehen gut ab. Habe das Album erst gestern wieder gehört und es gefällt mir immer noch!!! Hut ab!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 18, 2012 at 17:16
1995...the band couldn't escape the temptation of being "involved" into the grunge/alternative thing...another man on the mic as well(Mr McCowan)...for me it was not a completely waste but obviously far,very far away from their roots wich were simply amazing!!!!(who doesn't remember that classic "In The Middle Of The Night" of 1989 )..."Bend The Trend","All I Do Is Wait","2 Of Everything"(ala The Black Crowes),"Lay Down On Me","Fact Vs Fiction"(rocks)& "Desert Dessert"(nice acoustic AORish/country music song)are my faves...75/100

FTCharlie Wenn dir deine beiden angegebenen Songs dieses Albums gefallen dann solltest du entweder mal zum Ohrenarzt gehen oder dir die ersten 3China Alben in den Player legen damit du er kennst was genialer Melodic Hardrock(Sign in the Sky,z.b) ist und absoluter Schunt(Natural Groove)hat auch nichts mit dem Sänger oder verschiedenen Geschmäckern zu tun sondern um singen können oder nicht ,um Musikinstrumente spielen können oder nicht,das Album hat weder mit Hardrock, Rock,noch was mit allgemeiner Musik zu tun und jeder einzelne Song dieses Albums würde niemals meinen Gehörgang länger als 5Sek.erreichen
