Very very good album. Rainbow fans will love this.

From: AOR freaky Date: September 5, 2004 at 13:16
Rainbow fans will love this ? ! I'm afraid I don't understand it ! I love both Rainbow and Riot, but what the hell do they have in common soundwise, Rene ? !

Had to add this cd to this site(and few others). Great album, every song just rocks! I hope that they´ll do more records like this.

This is going to sound crazy...but now I know it's true...I knew GUITAR PLAYER MIKE FLYNTZ AND KNEW HIM VERY WELL. I was in high school...graduated in 2003 so this wasn't ver long ago. He was a substitute teacher NO JOKE!!! Long black hair.He always said he was in this band...NEVER KNEW THEY WERE THIS BIG!!!I'm sorry he's gone now...what a shame! I would have loved to talk to him more...he even played a guitar song for my litle brother in his elementary school class. He loved my KISS shirts!

This one of the first Riot cds I bought. I own almost everyone of them now. Bad Machine, Wing of Life, Cover Me, are all classics. The drumming alone makes this cd worth buying.

Saw Riot live for the first time on this tour and they didn't disappoint. They were everything I expected out of this class act. They played songs 2,3 and 4 along with a lot of the Innishmore tracks and the classics off the first three albums. Sadly no Rhett Forrester material as I think Dimeo could have handled them well.

Great powerful album!!!...i have always loved the unique sound that Riot has as a band ...in here we find a very special guest,Mr Tony Harnell(former TNT)as a backing vocalist!!!..with that man on board there's little else 2 say but quality ...my favourite songs are "On The Wings Of Life","Sons Of Society","Twist Of Fate"(great!),"Dragonfire","Time To Bleed" & "Promises"...90/100

I lost interest in Riot after the first 5 albums but got this cheap recently. Not a patch on the earlier stuff but a few OK tunes, namely "Bad Machine", "Cover Me", "Time To Bleed", "Promises" & "Twist Of Fate". The rest leave me pretty cold. Mike Dimeo sounds very similar to Tony Harnell (in Westworld with Mark Reale & who adds backing vocals on this).

IMO this is the Dimeo era equivelant of Thundersteeel. Powerful songs and great production.
