Another new Swedish bands hits the scene. They look good, play very solidly and have a lovely, tight production from Chris Laney and some good songs as well in 'Apocalyptic Youth' and 'Deliberately Wasted' both hitting the mark,(a definite Scorpions edge to some of the guitar work in places). The disadvantage I would say is that they are in the same market place with other young bands such as Dynazty and H.E.A.T etc and with both of those releasing such high quality albums this year, there isn't anything anwhere near as outstanding or memorable to be had here. It's a good, soid album but nothing to make you rush out to buy/download.

Wow for me this band sounds like a new modern version of The G Geils Band!!!(Peter Wolf)...very enjoyable release..."Apocalyptic Youth","Deliberately Wasted","The Juggler","Rich Girl","Love And Desperation" & "Secret Agents Of Lust" are my faves...86/100

It's super melodic, well-played, and produced by the legendary Chris Laney...so what's holding this album back from masterpiece status? In a word, energy. The band is more than capable of delivering some nuclear-hot hard rock ("Deliberately Wasted" for example) but they often settle for a more subdued, lukewarm approach to the songs. It's a little killer, plenty of filler, and a few outright duds; in other words, the kind of album just begging to be cherry picked on iTunes. Bottom line, there's enough good stuff on here that melodic rock fans shouldn't ignore the CD completely, but with 2012 being such a bountiful year for the genre, there's no need to rush either.

I love this release, great production, catchy songs, great guitar. My only downfall is there's not enough of it! Clocks in at only 35 minutes!!

This album of modern Swede rock is nearly saved by its terrific production (courtesy of Chris Laney), but there are too many elements that just don't cut it -- the primary being that the singer is AWFUL. The second is that the songs are really bland. Too bad, because there could have been a really successful project to be had, here. Nothing shoddy about the band itself (I personally am a big Ryan Roxie fan), except for that lame vocalist. And boy are the songs tired sounding -- as though the band knew the material was weak and merely phoned in the performances to let Laney work some magic towards getting it up to snuff. And it almost works -- almost. H.E.A.T. does it all much better, as though they MEAN it. 68 / 100
