|I wouldn't rate this 100 like Andrew McNiece has. But pretty close! I would rate it 97/100. Nothing is perfect!!!

|Very consistent, well written and performed songs with filler kept to an absolute minimum and surprisingly not the AOR wimp out I was expecting when this lineup was announced way back. The production is really great, which is nice to hear after so many average sounding MRdiscs recently. Of course JSS is on top form (as usual) and generally,this really is a first class melodic rock disc that actually rocks. Of it's type, definitely the best this year but certainly no 100 points from me (me thinks the JSS fan club has gotten a little over excited again in certain places) , but a very healthy 90'ish for sure

|Best release of the year? Maybe, unless a dark horse comes along to steal W.E.T's thunder in the next 6 weeks. JSS has said this is the Journey album that could have been. Well as far as I'm concerned I'm glad it wasn't. The songs flow together effortlessly thanks in part to Robert Sall (Work of Art) who get's credit for guitar work on 'Running from the Heartache'(melodic perfection), my second favorite track next to the bombastic opener 'Invincible'. Martensson adds a heavier edge on guitar giving this enough punch to push this release as a whole into hard rock territory. IMO the best release JSS has put his name on,with 'Lost in Translation' coming in second. A album this good should be owned,not burned. Drive down to the record store(if you can find one) and prepare your ears for melodic bliss. After one listen you will throw your 'DD Revolve' CD out the car window frisbie style. Yes, it's that good. 'Work of Art' which explains why

|This is a very very good album 87/100 HEAVY SCANDI AOR and if you could be suspicious because ,it seems AT FIRST like a pre-manufactured project set up by Frontiers rec. : Just let me say one thing ,it's a damn good Album with GREAT tracks !!! 15 years ago,we could have kill ,a FLANEL shirt guy ,for an album like that The songwriting level is VERY high and unreachable by a large part of the "real" melodic rock band out there both old and new ! Also ,the musicianship displayed mostly by E.MARTENSSON is impressive ,i think he is the real mastermind behind this release after his AMAZING work with ECLIPSE last year , this guy is a futur GREAT in the melodic METAL/HARD ROCK scene ! A new exciting Chapter in SWEDISH Melodic METAL or HEAVY AOR music ,it's 'bout to be written...... buy or DIE and burn in Hell

|This is something like if JSS would take a personal revenge to Neil Schon...I bet,this could easily be one of the better Journey albums of their catalogue.Journey fans can't miss that jewel! W.E.T. along with 'House of Dreams' by Sunstorm, are the best albums of 2009 without a shadow of a doubt! And YES, this is approaching perfection IMO.

|For me 100/100. Best album of 2009, in the vein of Journey meets scandinavian Hard Rock/AOR.
||Date: November 25, 2009 at 14:12|
|"If I Fall" is THE song of the year, maybe of the decade. Journey couldn't have done it better. This record is defenitely a musthave for every melodic rock fan!
||Date: December 5, 2009 at 5:29|
|Great release but not the perfect release that Melodicrock.com state. There are some magic moments though and 'If I Fall' inparticular is an instant Journeyesque classic. What i will say is that i haven't heard Soto sing this well in many years. 9/10 Looking for all those classic Journey live recordings and much more? http://arrivealive.proboards.com

|Oh gosh, what a gem. There are a few songs like the blatant filler 'Damage Is Done' and also 'Put your money where your mouth is' and the far too average 'Just go' that keep this album from the 100% mark, but it's definitely around the 85-90% mark, imo. The first four songs, one after another, are just excellent. And then, possibly my favourite song of 2009 - 'Running from the heartache.' Wow, just pure melodic rock perfection. AMAZING song. After that, we get back into the hard rockers with the flawless 'I'll Be There', a couple of fillers followed by the delicious ballad, 'One day at a time', filler time again and then the album closes out with two killers. 'My everything' is great and 'If I fall' is the second best song on the CD - pure magic. Overall, a truly excellent melodic hard rock CD and JSS's best work for a long, long time, if not his best CD ever.

|2009 was a great year for hard fm news.this album is one of the best of the year.jeff scott soto and his news "brother in arms" make a real great job.fantastic hard fm album even if i don t reconize his voice.jss have not the same voice in talisman.yes "if i fall" sound like journey but it is the lone song.the rest is a collection of top class melodic rocks songs.one bonus in the japan import a new version of the super ballad "comes down like rain".

|Excellent album by 3 talented musicians..who doesn't know Mr Jeff Scott Soto (Yngwie M,Journey,Talisman among others)plus 2 members of 2 wonderful bands (Work Of Art & Eclipse)...well we have here a very interesting release with great compositions.."Invicible" & "One Love" both very good songs with very nice choruses,"Come Down Like Rain" is a very pleasent mid tempo rock ballad,"Running Fron The Heartache" & "I'll Be There" both amazing,"Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" awesome song title and it rocks good,"One Day At A Time" is a killer ballad,"Just Go" blew my mind off,"My Everything" is great AOR,"If I Fall" sounds Journey all over with a very catchy melody and the acoustic version of "Come Down Like Rain" is precious..a worthy album 4 sure.93/100

|this is one of the best discs i have heard in a long time.jss is on top of his game here.every song is good.the first 4 songs are killer.i don't think journey could have done a better job.a great disc without a doubt.

|This is an excellent melodic rock disc and the bonus video disc is great too. JSS never sounded better. Canīt wait for a follow up. A must have!!! 10/10!!!
||Date: October 29, 2010 at 22:20|
|Really good album! One of the best discs of 2009, maybe the best. Hope they continue their work, start a big tour and come do some concerts here in Brazil! Worth a 100/100, cause all the songs are great and "One Love" is perfect!

|Great album but not Jeff Scott Soto at his best Takara/Talisman was JSS at his best
||Date: May 28, 2011 at 2:54|
|Okay I wasn't sure about this album. I saw it had some pretty good reviews online so I checked it out here on heavyharmonies and so yeah I bought it and it's great!

|very good hard rock debut by W.E.T. ,but not as good as stated above.the problem with many releases of nowadays is that they are dark and dont have a feelgood vibe.this is exactly the problem withthis one!besides that you get a strong guitarish sound ,with melodic tunes and choruses and some good songs like "running from the heartache","one love" ,"invincible" and "brothers in arms".JSS sings ok but not his best and overall this is a good release worth buying
||Date: November 16, 2011 at 18:13|
|Nobody even mentioned "One day at a time" I think! Fantasic ballad! Moving tearjerker ballad with this kicking ass melodic influence. Better than "Brothers in arms" which also can get you down on your knees. I love it! Generally the whole album is so good and although I'm hooked in listening to such stuff(even newer ones) I think AOR music is the best. I would define it as sth a little bit softer than melodic hard rock. For this fact I prefer Work of Art to W.E.T. One of my little dreams is to see them next year on FIREFEST! And W.E.T too of course. When I knew they would play on this year's Firefest I really found myself a bit of broken down that I could not have been there... And be in England itself finally cause I never had a chance to leave my area(Poland) in order to see english culture and to know english people about whom so many unconfirmed and stereotypical things are constantly being said.

|I've read many great reviews about this so was expecting fireworks. There's no doubt it is good, in places very good & if I had not heard anything about this before hearing it I would have been impressed. There is also no doubt it is well written & played & Jeff Scott Soto sounds as good as ever. However for me the songs all rate between 7-8 out of 10 which normally I would accept for nearly any release, but after reading so many over the top comments/reviews about this I was expecting another "Back in black" which it certainly ain't. Very good but not the masterpiece some are saying.
||Date: May 31, 2015 at 18:21|
|What an album! Jeff Scott Soto really shines in this disc that sounds like a very modern Talisman. Invincible (explosive opener), One Love (powerful vocals), Comes Down Like Rain (a semi-ballad and my favourite), Running From The Heartache (super guitars), I'll Be There (loud and extremely melodic; again, Soto shines on this one), Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is (my final favourite). There is a bit of filler towards the end but the great tracks make up for it. Soto hasn't lost anything over the years and coupled with the pounding drums, bass and smooth keyboards and guitars, the result is as great as you'd expect.
||Date: March 9, 2016 at 22:24|
|Definitely one of the better Frontiers "supergroup" projects and modern AOR albums out there. I'm definitely not as big a fan of Erik Martensson as everyone else seems to be, but he hits a home run here; you've got a dozen well-written, well-played, and well-produced songs. Not many weak links on this album. Hightlights are the opener "Invincible" and "If I Fall," featuring one of the catchiest choruses I've ever heard...the counterpoint between Martensson's and Soto's vocal lines is just too good to be true!

|This is good melodic hard rock album with heavier edge but not as groundbreaking or extraordinary as some other people seem to consider.
|From: the rocker

|This is a masterpiece! "NOT groundbreaking"? Who cares? This is Melodic Rock at it's highest caliber!!!

|yes this record is a masterpiece,top class , very smart and catchy, hard f m.a marvellous realise essential in all serious hard f m collection.
||Date: May 13, 2020 at 8:33|
|Excellent release, with clear touches of Eclipse and Work of Art all over it. Jeff Scott Soto on the mic gives it an own flavour though. There are some huge tunes on this one, like the opener Invincible, the classics One love and Comes down like rain, the great Running from the heartache, One day at the time, If I fall...
||Date: January 26, 2021 at 18:06|
|An okay album. The only song that caught my attention is 'Running from the heartache'.
