Existing comments about this CD

From: Swazi Date: July 4, 2006 at 6:53
Wow ! This one was added quickly ! Phantastic CD ! Seems like the perfect mix between Jaded Heart and Casanova. There are great rockers, "Waterfalls", Escaping" (my favourite), "Skytrain" and beautiful ballads like "Here I am" and "Feelings". I am not too keen on the T.Tex cover "Hot Love", but that's me. Highly recommended !!

From: Swazi Date: July 4, 2006 at 8:08
T.Rex, of course !!

From: Erik Date: July 20, 2006 at 12:43
Have always had a soft spot for this band. Now in 2006 we seem them back again. And how ! For me their best efoort 2 date. Swazi wrote it already. Fantastic cd ! This is going in my top 5 without a doubt. Not sure yet who will have to make room tho The rockers like Waterfall , Devil in disguise, Hot Love, Ride the Night away, Skytrain , Escaping and Everytime you want are sheer class. 9/10

From: Erik Date: July 20, 2006 at 12:44

From: Erik Date: July 20, 2006 at 12:50

From: Erik Date: July 21, 2006 at 11:10
My league one of this year for now: Brother Firetribe (9,9), Hotwire(9,9), Ted Poley (9,7), Newman(9,5), Fate(9,5), Wig Wam (9,4) Vengeance(9,1). PS The TRex cover is an absolute brilliant one. The rhythm in that song.......magical

From: sluss528 Date: July 22, 2006 at 0:15
again nothing great! just some decent rock but nothing that just grabs you and kicks your ass! now if you want something that does kick your ass get the new big cock. that kicks these guy's ass's all the way back to germany!!!!!!!!!!!!! 7/10

From: Erik Date: July 22, 2006 at 10:11
again nothing great ? childish reaction sluss528 but hey if it makes you feel better.

From: sluss528 Date: July 22, 2006 at 17:05

From: Erik Date: July 23, 2006 at 4:53
sluss528 what is it you dont understand ? this is NOT metal. dont ly in the sun so much next time before you make a comment. kinda gets to you it seems. so one more time, cause its warm again today, if you wanna criticise METAL then look at the top of the page next time first where it says : Category : AOR ! Omg some people..........

From: sluss528 Date: July 23, 2006 at 14:18
you know if you guy's want to split hairs thats ok! yea you got it right it's not metal buy a mile. so let's just call it rock for the sake of argument. it's just weak ass aor that has no ball's just like you eric! if you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen! if you want to go to sleep listen to this thing. i stand by my rating, this is average at best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Erik Date: July 24, 2006 at 12:33
sluss528 you made your point. dont like the cd.so be it. but split hairs. a) you started insulting me b) normally people dont do that to me c) i just dont take insults very well and d) not at all via email. would leave hearing you say it in my face. then we would see who has balls. fortunately we all know how tuff people are that start insuling from behind their pc......

From: sluss528 Date: July 24, 2006 at 13:23
hey eric, first off you calling my comments childish was the bomb you threw! just because i called the cd average. i own the cd my friend and it is a little better with more listens for sure! so next time you don't agree with someones comments just roll with it!

From: Erik Date: July 24, 2006 at 15:30
childish was the bomb ? and thats an excuse to say to me "put down the crack pipe" and " you have no balls". you have a not very nice way of saying things. making it personal. with a big mouth. i dont like that. at all... but i cant do anything about it thru email. so these are my last words spent on you.

From: sluss528 Date: July 25, 2006 at 1:26
this is to erik, i have been out of town for the last 3 weeks and get back and log in to this site and see that someone that i gave my pass word to play around on this site has been flaming on you. well i just want you to know that is was not me and have since taken care of the problem for sure! some people can not be trusted at all. so with that i say sorry. my bad! ps i really like the new hotwire cd as well! take care. mark

thanks Mark !

From: Helix Date: August 3, 2006 at 15:45
not a bad cd if you are a fan of firehouse or skid row I gave it an 8

From: SangreAzulForever Date: August 10, 2006 at 15:05
Considering that these days are not the best for this kind of music, I´d really recommend this CD to everyone else. The melodies in it are fantastic, the ballad "feelings" although reminding me to "more than words" from Extreme is stunning; it´s also worth mentioning that this is the best album this band has ever released, I don´t really like the previous issues but man, this one really rocks!! 8,5/10

From: Geoff Date: August 14, 2006 at 21:11
Hmmmm, I do like this one but if I'm being completely honest (sorry Erik ) I have to admit it's not quite as good as I was hoping for. I still don't think it matches their first 2 albums. 'Wonderland' is my favourite track here, and the whole album is consistently good. I guess I was hoping for just a couple more mind-blowing tracks. Good, very solid melodic rock though. Great band.

**************Este lanzamiento tiene apenas mas de 2 meses de haber visto la luz, por lo que mas de un buscador de nuevas bandas estará complacido de esto, aunque Hot Wire ya tiene mas de 13 años de trayectoria profesional. Surgieron en el 93’, en Ingolstadt, Alemania, de hecho han logrado buenas amistades a tal punto de que “Devil in disguise” esta producido por el ex Bonfire, Chris Lausmann quien ya había puesto sus manos en la primera producción (un maxi cd) de Hotwire, allá por el 95’,

From: lucasgordon Date: September 2, 2006 at 4:10
hoy una reliquia inconseguible, ya que solo se expidieron 1000 copias. El sonido de Hot Wire es claramente un melódico hard rock ochentoso’, con muchos coros, riffs, y arreglos bien FM. La versión de T.Rex del tema “Hot love” es la mejor que haya escuchado en mi vida, de hecho, definitivamente podría ser el tema ideal de promoción de “Devil in disguise”. El vocalista, Andy Urbeck tiene una voz bien clara, sin ser ultra aguda, encaja perfecto en lo que el estilo necesita, esta más cerca de un

From: lucasgordon Date: September 2, 2006 at 4:11
hard rock AOR que sleazy. Vamos a escuchar a un guitarrista prolijo, no pretencioso, llamado Alex Espinoza, y un grupo de base compuesto por el baterista Tom Glas y el bajista Winnie Newmann quienes aprovechan cada golpe y sonido, para que la base suene bien potente, cosa que pueden apreciar claramente en “Skytrain”, en las partes que Andy no canta. La producción cuenta con pasajes mas suaves como “Feelings” y “I know” por ejemplo, que muestran una faceta mas cariñosa y romántica,

From: lucasgordon Date: September 2, 2006 at 4:12
reitero ideal para que suene en las FMs. “Devil in disguise” esta muy bien balanceado en sus 11 temas, se percibe tocando claramente a una banda madura, profesional, que le pone pasión y buen gusto. ******************** myspace.com/lucasgordon

From: aorteto Date: October 11, 2006 at 10:13
Aqui mezclan algo de los tres anteriores y consiguen algo maravilloso que debe ser incluido entre los mejores del año sin duda. Desde las mas pesadas WATERFALLS o SKYTRAIN, pasando por las melodicas WONDERLAND y FEELINGS hasta la rockera HOT LOVE no tenemos desperdicio aqui. Palmas para el sacrificio de esta banda!!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: November 16, 2006 at 10:52
Very Good Melodic Hard Rock/AOR album, como Rockero completo puedo sentir lo que un AORero siente con este album o lo que un Metalero(el caso de sluss) siente, asi que me puedo dar el lujo de criticar cualquier album de Rock de cualquier estilo ja seguro a un AORero le pones Dragon o Xentrix y dice noo eso noo en fin esta banda y este album es muy bueno pero no es Grande tampoco, eso si es de los buenos albums de este año, actual bueno y conservando la esencia del verdadero Rock 8.5/10.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: November 9, 2007 at 19:49
Un buen album actual de Melodic Hard Rock/AOR Toque fresco y moderno un decente trabajo, un album regular con temas buenos con potencia y con una melodia algo extraña en "I Know" pero bueno aqui hay material para escojer un albun totalmente con toques muy frescos hay dos temas que me llaman mucho la atencion Skytrain & Escaping dos buenos cortes para atreverse a todo!!! el resto de temas buenos como ya se los menciono un disco aceptable de Hotwire..
