First comment and it has to be a goodie one ....perfect combination of melodies and solidness in the songs that will surely give the lsiteners a pretty nice sensation...pleasant vocals courtesy of Mr Stole....the album is packed with no fillers just thrillers being my personal faves these ones:"Too Late"(great & probably the best cut of the album IMHO),"Can't Keep Running","Crying For You"(brilliant),"In The Blink Of An Eye"(power ballad),"This Is It"(catchy),"The One For Me"(nice) & "Matters To The Heart"(nice & catchy)...highly recommended album...94/100

If you like quality AOR, this one is amazing! They are all extremely hooky tracks with the whole menu - keys, harmonies, strong melodies, guitars and accent-free, strong vocals. If I had to pick a stand-out track it would be 'In the Blink of an Eye.' 99/100

A real shame that this has been released at the same time as the super hyped Work Of Art and Toby Hitchcock discs, as I fear that it may get completely overlooked with the constant glowing reviews of both of those. That would be a real shame, as there are some real belters on here, and at it's best, it's nearly as good songwise as both of those releases. It's not as super slick as WOA, although I will say in it's favour that it is more varied stylewise, with loads of up tempo stuff, some more Westcoast AOR and even a couple of good ballads aswell. All this pays off handsomely on tracks like the belting opener 'Can't Keep Running' (one of the best opening tracks I've heard this year so far), 'Crying For You' and 'In The Blink Of An Eye'. Special mention too to the excellent Vocalist Johanne Stole (who reminds me of a cross between Joseph Williams and Peter Cetera in places) and some cracking Guitar and Keyboard work too. DO NOT IGNORE THIS DISC.

i ve discover this cd by concidence(thanx to schmankerl records).so after listen one minute of each songs on h h,and after reading the three comments before me ,i ve decide to find this record in japan issue.it was complicate cause this album is out of print in jap version.finally i ve find it on amazon japan.receive it today and i m not disapointed ,i m under the charm of this top class scandi a o r realise.it s very simple:you are fan of "on the rise "? ok no hesitation this record is for you.the norvegian duet have the precious help of daniel flores (drums,keyboards and all the production).mr flores make a super job the sound is absoluty perfect.only killer songs on this album.this cd is a dream to all aor fans on this earth.xorigin plays a top class,very clean,very polished,very melodic scandi a o r.the japan import is highly recommanded cause the bonus track n 12 "death on the highway" is an irresistible hard rock song.it s incredible that this duet is unknow and have no success,
