I've heard some mixed emotions on this one. In my opinion, I feel it is a good album. Quality songs, good melodic hard rock. Any Place On This Highway and Sting Of the Rain are probably the best ones. I feel it's every bit as good as their earlier albums. Check it out, I don't think you'll be dissapointed.

Great comeback Album ! Sting of the Rain ! What a voice ! Wow !!! 8,5\10

From: Rycheage Date: June 23, 2003 at 18:50
The sound is tight, production excellent and overall balance makes the album roll along nicely. The style is hard to pigeon hole. There are some great balladds in AOR, some rockier moments that lend themselves to 80's hard rock, and other tracks sound like Euro rock/metal.

A Great come back album featuring a great re-recording of the classic 'Battles' track. The main difference on this compared to the earlier releases is new boy Blake Eberhard's bass playing , alot more Funky/Slap orientated than before, which gives the band a different sound. Also of note is the excellent 'Sting Of The Rain' & 'Burn Me Once Burn Me Twice'.

Cool Comeback Album~~

From: Hellcat Date: March 2, 2005 at 15:58
The cream of the cream .. the best album of Axe !! Buy it or go to hell !!

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 30, 2006 at 17:45
The "Heroes And Legends" are back and "Where There's Smoke (There's Fire)". The production and sound on this one is just over the top perfection. While there are some killer melodic rock songs on here, such as the before mentioned "Heroes" and "Sting Of The Rain" to name a couple. I felt overall the song quality was a little below what I have come to expect from this all to amazing band, but it is still a very good album. If you dig the band, I think you'll dig the disc.

I thought this was a great comeback album. Finally got to see AXE live in 2007 and they put on a good show.

From: rbrigade Date: November 30, 2008 at 15:06
Why such a low rating? No ear for good music? As many before have stated this is a great album and their best effort along with Offerings. Just get it, it's hard rock out of heaven. Very touching melodies.

For anyone that still doesn't know, Bobby Barth is a rare and special, but sadly largely unsung talent. Axe packed many special moments into each and every one of their earlier albums, but this 'comeback' effort was simply superb. Too many highlights to list here, but Bob Harris, whose voice is actually not that far removed from Barth's in tone, is mighty throughout, the song writing, musicianship and production is exemplary too, and melodic hard rock really doesn't get much better than this. So grab a copy, enjoy, and then search out the rest of Axe's albums, plus the other Bobby Barth and Bob Harris material. You won't regret it!
