Each piece is full of highly-combustible energy, even the somewhat sultry sounding "Chains (Revolving)." The title track comes closest to melodic prog metal, and is my favorite track on the album, aside from a tender acoustic rendition of George Harrison's "Here Comes The Sun." The other cover track here is UFO's "Only You Can Rock Me," which features guest Josh Pincus (Ice Age) on parpy keyboards, presenting a lighter sound.

Good album with some catchy songs. Chains Revolving and Through the Storm are monster tracks.

From: Dave Date: June 18, 2004 at 7:53
I kid you not , this is one shit hot hard rock album.Let it Show is a classic power ballad and the UFO cover "Only You Can Rock Me" is a beauty!This is a very underrated album that sadly has had no promotion and because of this is going to be missed by many hard rock fans that would really like it!!!!

From: aTomiK Date: September 4, 2004 at 8:58
Man, this album smokes!! First 4 songs will simply kill you! Long live Riot!!

From: Dave Date: September 4, 2004 at 10:14
aTomiK you are dead right,this album smokes and if anyone is fair dinkum about hard rock , they have to listen to this.Without doubt one shit hot album!!!!!!!!

From: Dave Date: March 13, 2005 at 22:06
It's time to remind people how good this album really is. If you like your rock hard , this is for you. This also contains a monster power ballad "Let It Show" and a classic cover of UFO's "Only You Can Rock Me"

From: heaven&hell Date: August 26, 2005 at 20:45
This album is awesome. It might be there best overall album along with fire down under. It's definitly the best release with Mike Dimeo on vox just a step ahead of Sons of Society. I can't wait until the next album comes out.

Nice shift to AOR/Melodic rock here. When Riot rocks they grab you by the nape of the neck and pound your briddle body into a lifeless clump of flesh!! Long live Riot!! Please add NIGHTBREAKER!
