Fantastic hard rock in the vein of the mighty Rainbow. Kotzev is a very good songwriter and the vocalists are marvelous too. Very good but not as good as the Nostradamus Masterpiece by Kotzev

From: Rycheage Date: July 2, 2003 at 20:28
There are three or four really classy big ballads on Bad Religion which sound as big anything on record this year. Just check out the Joe Lynn Turner sung 'We Don't Talk Anymore'. It is just that these seemed a little overshadowed when the bombastic over drive of the rock numbers took over. But, having said that, as far as big hard rocking European metal albums go, this is still a fine record. Very well recorded and produced and of sound musicianship. Highly recommended!!

a masterpiece. Thom Vikstrom singing on "We don't talk anymore" it's a great Europe-oriented rock experience!

Another great album from Kotzev, IMO only surpassed by only the followup!

From: Dave Date: October 16, 2004 at 5:37
In my view it's a good Hard Rock album that certainly has its moments but i have to disagree with Rycheage in regards to the ballads because they just don't seem to do anything for me , they seem to lack that big punch that a great ballad has.Anyway, thats just my thoughts.

Outstanding piece of work. Never let it be said that Nikolo lets us down in any way.

A pesar que Goran Edman es uno de mis cantantes favoritos(puede cantar lo que sea, AOR, WESTCOAST, PROGRE, HEAVY,HARD, etc); aqui reconozco que no me gusta. Diferente es su labor en los dos discos anteriores. Joe Lynn Turner y Thomas Vikstrom destacan con mejores canciones. El bonus japones es una version acustica de Love is On Our Side. We Don't Talk Anymore, cantada por Thomas, una de las mejores del album. Espero pronto un pedido con el grupo heavyprogre MEHIDA donde canta el.

I don't have this cd yet but I LOVE I Will Rise Again. Can someone tell me who sings that song?
