|Not as good as the debut, but not bad. Hopefully they can come back with something longer and stronger.|

|David Victor sounds like a man much improved on vocals, while the whole quality of this EP is 2 steps up from their debut album. Just a shame it isn't more! Some may not like the more modern and aggressive sound, but i think the guys have done a good job of moving forward without totally losing their melodic roots. 'Alive' and 'You' highlight this all too short CD.|

|Why do bands have to evolve. I dont undersatnd. Do what you do best. Such a brilliant first release. I may even say a classic for all lovers of hard driven melodic rock songs. Songs you just have to play over and over again in your stereo. You know its not bad this one but the modern stuff will not appeal the 'old'fans and in my opinion not any new ones. Pleasy guys go back to your outstanding 'Impact' roots !|

|Actually, it was the 'evolving' of Velocity that got me interested in this band. (that would make me a new fan.) I still feel that a melodic rock band can still write grunge better than pure grunge bands can...But essentially, erik is right. I heard 'Impact' thereafter and instantly liked it more than their EP follow-up. I've long rid of 'Activator' since.|

|Right, not as good as the IMPACT debut but hey David Victor is here! his voice kick ass as always(Alive), btw this EP has certain modern "Grunge" touches (Stranger).. Cool HardRock. 7.5/10|

|I love the track "Beautiful and Useless". Definitely harder than the first release, which is much more melodic-rock influenced.|

|I quite liked this Ep...David's voice is really worth the listen and also we have the talented drummer Pat Torpey(Mr Big/Stan Bush & Barrage)along with Chris Dodge on guitar (well the 3 of them are Velocity!)..."Stay" is such a highlight,a good song,"Beautiful & Useless" well this song is not "useless",hahaha,i liked it a lot!,"Alive" is a solid one,"You" rocks the house properly and "Stranger" even though it has some kind of grungy sound,is my personal fave of them all...87/100|
