This is a good one for the end of the year! Hard AOR at it's best.

From: the rocker Date: November 7, 2011 at 17:37
I've been listening to this trying to think of who it reminds me of ,and in my opinion it' James Lebrie when he was in Winter Rose. Anyone else?

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 10, 2011 at 19:39
Now we're talking guys!!!...great album by all means ...excellent songs backed up with a great vocalist(or at least if not "that" great a one that does a very good job indeed...hey the rocker,yes my friend it has some James Labrie influence when singing )...faves o' mine are "Cheated By Love","Memories","Angel"(killer ballad),"Love's On The Line","Bullets" & "Tired Of Dreaming"...recommended...90/100

From: the rocker Date: November 10, 2011 at 19:58

From: Hair metal hero Date: November 16, 2011 at 7:52
Wow, man this is great. Can't put it into words how good this album is. Have been listening to this non-stop for about 3 days now and loving it. Pure 80's hard rock, should be in this years top 5 for sure. Every song is a winner, a rare case of all killer-no filler. Essential for everyone viewing this site! 98/100

From: gtj Date: November 21, 2011 at 3:32
Biggest surprise of 2011. Awesome album and that singer is absolutely magnificent!

From: edwithmj Date: November 21, 2011 at 11:35
Without a doubt the best new release I've heard from 2011. The production and vocals are out of this world. Love's on the Line is my current favourite.

From: gtj Date: November 21, 2011 at 12:08
Noone has ever gotten that close to the heydays nad vocal peak of the mighty Joey Tempest...

From: the rocker Date: December 1, 2011 at 21:57

From: aorjocke Date: December 8, 2011 at 15:00
Superb album from start to finish, like the mix of keys and guitars and the lead vocals is very good! Favourite songs of mine are, "Cheated by Love" with a killer refrain, "Memories","Satin & Lace", "Bullets" cool song, "Tired of Dreaming", "Lost" really nice keys in this song...top 10 this year for sure!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: December 13, 2011 at 11:59
Great Melodic Hard Rock! really a Great album 100% in the style/voice of Europe (best times), fav tracks "Cheated by Love (My fav), Angel (what a ballad!), Holding on To Your Love, Memories, Smoke & Fire and Lost" 90/100.

From: Harald Date: December 13, 2011 at 16:30
Album of the year for me, a melodic masterpiece. Mix Treatīs Dreamhunter and John Norumīs Total Control and you get "The Magnificent".

From: Hard Rock Guru Date: December 20, 2011 at 7:34
Magnificent! Greetings from Lima, Peru!

From: Jay K Date: January 3, 2012 at 11:47
This is very much the perfect hard rock/AOR album. Every song is a 10, with no filler, period. Easily my favorite for 2011.

From: Leykis101 Date: October 16, 2012 at 0:56
What a completely fucking awesome disc, start to end, production is there, songs are there, musicianship is there, you wont go wrong buying this bitch, even before hearing it.

From: Hair metal hero Date: October 23, 2012 at 4:27
This album just doesn't get old. Maybe my favorite AOR album since the 80's..yeah, it's that good. Everything is right on this one, the production is excellent, the songs are all winners, great musicianship and one important ingredient: great keyboards. Don't miss this one! 98/100

From: CMGio Date: December 3, 2012 at 23:32
What really strikes me about this record is the mix. Everything sounds absolutely MASSIVE, HUMONGOUS. And Eriksen's voice absolutely SOARS over EVERYTHING. I can hardly believe how good this is.

From: ROBERT Date: May 15, 2014 at 20:09
SONG: tired of dreaming compossed by : pekka ansio of BROTHER FIRETRIBE

From: Ni6htWalker Date: March 15, 2020 at 16:34
i just love this album,hope they can release another album but i think that is not going to be possible 😉

From: Z4roxx Date: March 30, 2020 at 21:13
First 5 songs are simply awesome, I re-listened to it some days ago. The rest is excellent but not essential.

From: Yiro Date: February 3, 2021 at 3:35
One of the best AOR albums Iīve heard. When we talk about AOR classics we think about Alien, Survivor, Journey, Toto, Aviator, FM, Mark Free, Work Of Art, and other known names but we have to add this one to the essential collection. In my opinion this is the best AOR album Europe never made: All the songs have hooks and my faves are "Cheated by love" (those keys and the guitars are like wow), "Angel" (Michael Eriksen whatta singer), that energetic "Satin and Lace", "Smoke and Fire" (Totally Europe and much better than them), "Tired Of dreaming" (amazing chorus) and "Bullets". THis is one of those AOR albums you can listen to without skipping one single song īcos seems these guys had the mission of doinī an album full of potential eighties radio AOR hits and goddamn they did. You gotta have it right now
