Un disco mas de Hard Melodico si no fuera por un tema,uno de esos temas estrella de la decada prodigiosa del mundo melódico,el tema es Rowena realmente FASCINANTE,ya que no querian que el tema se encontrase demasiado solo en el disco hacen una versión de uno de los grandes clásicos de los 70 More Than a Feeling de Boston.ROWENA ESCUCHADLA ALGUNA VEZ EN VUESTRA VIDA.

Up there with the Other classic Scandie AOR bands Alien, Treat, Talk Of The Town etc, although 'Living On The Edge' is a blatant Honeymoon Suite rip off all the way thru. Great cd though.

From: koogles Date: December 10, 2002 at 20:37
A bit lighter than Treat, but very solid, instantly likeable AOR. Their sound is very clean like Da Vinci, early Glory or Talk of the Town. "Rowena" and "Rainbow" are stunning. Don't second guess this one- it'll be just a matter of time before it's in your collection.

From: musicFreak Date: September 18, 2003 at 12:06
The second track "Rainbow" is an instant AOR classic. A great album, get it ! Note that "13 Years Of Bad Habits" includes a remastered/remixed version of this very same album with bonus tracks

From: chase,kill,eat Date: October 2, 2003 at 14:33
Hi Guys this is a strong killing album. Listen to DON'T STOP (thats what rock n roll is about: fuckin' Yeah!! or wonderful ballads as MORE THAN I an' NEVER FIND ANOTHER YOU all kick ass in the vain of SKAGARACK, TALK OF THE TOWN an' so on. Don't guess Iam a chaser, killer, eater or fucker --it's pure irony

From: Andreas The Kid Date: November 13, 2003 at 22:11
This is the best AOR-band and musicians I ever heard from Sweden. Recommended. And yeah "Don't Stop" is a killer! I also recommend "Young & Innocent"-MLP from -88...a bit rougher sound!

From: ROBERT Date: December 13, 2003 at 13:14
14º DISCO DE LA LISTA DEL 89' Este es otro Grandioso disco, estos suecos se salieron en su dia...10 temas d puro HARD MELODICO rozando el AOR para mi entender... un 7'5 sobre 10!!

From: Munpa Date: January 19, 2004 at 12:04
Good Album!! Must Buy!!

if you like that scandi sound.then this is top of pile.along with dalto treat da vinci wig wam.JUST BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Cynthia Date: June 22, 2004 at 13:40
Me parece que es un exelente trabajo dentro del genero del hard rock, muy rico de escuchar, y sobre todo un disco que reune una gran serie de recursos tecnicos que lo convierten en una pieza digna de enmarcar

From: TIM (2) Date: July 2, 2004 at 8:39
Their first, and just about their best, a great collection of keyboard-driven AOR tunes. The cover of Boston was inspired, and "Rowena" is a classic, and overall this is essential if you like Da Vinci/Alien/Talk of the Town etc...

From: K.K. Poland Date: August 4, 2004 at 4:53
Rowena!! AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! very good album, 8/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: November 7, 2004 at 11:49
DE ACUERDO CON LO COMENTADO POR 9 CHAMPIONS Y ROBERT, UN BUEN ALBUM DE LOS SUECOS, NO LLEGA A SER UNA JOYA PERO ES BUENO, TEMAS CON FUERZA, SONIDO ESCANDINAVO TOTAL, CLARO LOS ESCANDINAVOS TIENEN SU TOQUE PARTICULAR DE HACER SU ROCK MELODICO, EN ESTO SON UNICOS E ICOMPARABLES. TEMAS COMO Coming Home, Living on the Edge, Rainbow Y SOBRE TODO Rowena LA JOYA PARA MI, HACEN UN BUEN ALBUM, EL RESTO TAMBIEN DE BUENA FACTURA. SALUDOS A TODOS LOS AMANTES DE ESTE GENERO UNICO E INCOMPARABLE

From: z4roxx Date: December 14, 2004 at 18:55
MARVELLOUS IS THE RIGHT WORD FOR THIS CD AND FOR THIS BAND,TOO....

From: Melodiker Date: March 21, 2005 at 7:50
Good,but not mindblowing ! 8\10

From: mauricio Date: December 18, 2005 at 13:36
hi-from COSTARICA, una de las mas grandes joyas del rock melodico escandinavo es este album de los suecos BAD HABIT,y como no ha de ser una joya si pertenece a 1989.si te gustan los grupos escandinavos no lo dudes y comprate este album un aor del que se hace historia. y son junto a SKAGARACK la banda mas interesante salida desde escandinavia.Este disco es una joya con solo oir la apertura de LIVING ON THE EDGE ya te quedas enganchado al grupo y que decir de RAINBOW otro tema mas brillante del cd

From: mauricio Date: December 18, 2005 at 13:36
solo escucha esos teclados tan hermosos.y que decir de tema punta de lanza el cover de boston MORE THAN A FEELING con la destreza que interpretan el tema e incluso mejor que boston.las 2 baladas MORE THAN I & NEVER FIND ANOTHER YOU tambien hits singles de este album.Y que decir de otro de los mejores temas y tambien single del album la impresionante ROWENA que temazo para poner en la radio.Los demas temas son geniales PLAY THE GAME-COMING HOME-DONT STOP-WINNER TAKES IT ALL.en si el disco no hay

From: mauricio Date: December 18, 2005 at 13:36
desperdicio.aunque un sonido un poquito light a diferencia de bandas como EUROPE-TREAT-ALIEN-GLORY-DALTON pero es fuerte Y la produccion de HAL marabel JOHNSTONE es muy cuidada,ademas de tocar la guitarra.la voz de BAX FEHLING quizas un de los elementos essenciales para este grupo.los teclados de DOC PAT SHANNON son incomparables y los otros 2 musicos como la base ritmica del grupo. solo digo que soy muy afortunado de tener este disco ORIGINAL y traido desde HOLANDA y haber descubierto a este

From: mauricio Date: December 18, 2005 at 13:37
fabuloso grupo sueco que se sumo a mi coleccion,ademas de tener este AFTER HOURS tengo su REVOLUTION +4 bonus & 13 YEARS OF BAD HABITS (unicamente por tener su Ep YOUNG & INNOCENT y los 3 bonus tracks) en conclusion una pieza de coleccion y super dificil de conseguir en AMERICA.vale la pena comprarlo y prohibido bajarlo de la red. ESCUCHALO ALGUNA VEZ EN NUESTRA VIDA. ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO BASTANTE IMPRESIONANTE Y MUY ABSOLUTAMENTE ELEGANTE compralo BAD HABIT..10/10 (maujobarksott@hotmail.com)

From: Magnus Date: March 31, 2007 at 21:05
Oh,what a lovely scandi AOR disc! Getting hard to find but it's well worth the effort and the money! Just listen to the tune ROOOWEEENA! And your hooked for life! Along with Glory,Alien,Europe and Treat one of the best bands from Sweden. Timeless stuff! Also buy their 13 years... cd and get the fantastic debut mini LP as a bonus! STAY PINK AND FLUFFY!

From: shooto Date: May 22, 2007 at 14:16
son joyas hasta las demos del 87 young & innocent.The very first release for the band. Actually, this was a demo we produced to get the attention of the record labels. As it turned out CBS (as they were called then) jumped at the chance to release the six songs as a mini-LP. It received great reviews wherever it was released. The sound however, is not very good.

From: TONI MALLORCA Date: July 31, 2007 at 15:55
debido a las buenas referencias que estan dando de este disco,lo he pedido,espero que no me defraude.

From: nikki wikked Date: April 11, 2008 at 13:16
Good Release. Rowena is one of my fave songs EVER and to me is the stand out track on the album. A decent release all in all. www.glmbandz.piczo.com

From: juan carlos Date: April 28, 2009 at 0:14
Boston is a very big influence to Bad Habit and they recognize that. "Rowena" is the "More Than A Feeling"(the cover is nice but NEVER better than the Original!!) of the 80s, What a tune man! The best BH´s song without any doubt. "Living on the Edge" reminds me of a classic Honeymoon Suite´s song called "Lost And Found"(1985). "More Than I" & "Never Find Another You" are enjoyable ballad, "Rainbow" "Winner Takes It All" are also great ones. Bax Fenling has a very special voice indeed. Nice AOR and Recommended of course! 8.8/10

From: erik Date: April 30, 2009 at 14:36
Fantastic "scandi" melodic rock. Somewhere between Dalton and DaVinci( just listen to the fantastic The Winner takes it All). Pitty for the Boston cover. 87/100

From: coverdale14 Date: June 9, 2010 at 14:21
HERE'S THE AFTER HOURS ALBUM, "LIVING ON THE EDGE" GREAT OPENING AOR OPENING, BUT "RAINBOW" WHAT A AOR GEM THE BEST SONG OF BAD HABIT EVER RECORDED,"DON'T STOP" AND "PLAY THE GAME" CONTINUE THE GOOD AOR VIBER OF THE ALBUM, "MORE THAN I" PERFECT AOR BALLAD, WHAT A FEELING OF THIS SONG,"ROWENA" EXCELENT CHORUS,TE "MORE THAN A FEELING" SONG WHAT A SURPRISE I PREFER THE BOSTON ALWAYS BUT THIS IS GREAT. 9/10.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 11, 2010 at 13:24
A great band, i have 3 video concerts and really they are great in live too.

From: juan carlos Date: June 11, 2010 at 13:42

From: DonDefo Date: December 22, 2010 at 5:43
ROWENA!!

From: DonDefo Date: December 31, 2010 at 5:26
You joke or sth - 84/100?! ROWENA, MORE THAN I. BEAUTIFUL TRACKS!

From: hair metal again Date: January 21, 2012 at 4:09
excellent debut by BAD HABIT back in 89!fantastic musicianship and especially the guitar work by Hal is astonishing!lite commercial hard rock music with many hooks,high vocs and many good songs like "rowena","living on the edge","rainbow" and "play the game".essential release and a very good live act too!

From: ROBERT Date: March 19, 2012 at 23:47
THIS IS MELODIC HARD ROCK!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 9, 2012 at 17:54
Surely it is a good release,as some stated above,maybe not a kiler one but it has the ingredients to feed us quite well in AOR terms..."Living On The Edge","Rainbow"(great!),"Play The Game","Rowena"(the hit single),"Coming Home" & the Boston cover "More Than A Feeling"(a decent one but somehow a filler IMO)are the highlights to me off this record...enjoyable if being objective...88/100
