From: DRAGONFLY Date: December 11, 2001 at 13:09
A SOLID FOLLOW UP TO THEIR FIRST RELEASE. GOOD SOLID ROCK LIKE EUROPE AND TREAT BUT ALITTLE MORE POP SOUND TO IT. GOOD LEAD GUITAR PLAYING.

From: koogles Date: January 1, 2002 at 12:24
Very palatable Scandi stuff that any fan of Europe or Treat will enjoy. Production is world class, as is the songwriting, vocals and musicianship. Some cheese in the lyrical department, but not enough to spoil what is otherwise a solid release.

From: Funwolf Date: July 13, 2002 at 9:58
Great stuff! Really a treat like TREAT!!!

From: Teo_3 Date: December 17, 2002 at 21:14
Excellent efford from this scandinavian very talented rock group.Production is world class as well.If you can afford it BUY it!!!!

From: freddy de keyze Date: January 3, 2003 at 19:20
A real shame that such an average band is at the top of the top 25 ! Nuff said !

From: Teo_3 Date: January 3, 2003 at 21:09
To call DA VINCI an average band shows how little you know about hard rock.Opinions like that send all great bands to sign with japanese record companies and make themselves hard to find,and left us with the likes of Bon Jovi and co.What a pity. P.S You don't have to vote 50 times to lower the ratings of a particular band.Most people cannot afford the likes of DA VINCI,DALTON and 220 VOLT anyway.

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: January 24, 2003 at 14:28
Muy buen duisco coincido con Teo-3

From: ROBERT Date: January 24, 2003 at 19:08
ME ENCANTA, BUENISIMO, como no iba aserlo si es del 89' una verdadera joya d muchos kilates. recomendadisimo!!

From: Teo_3 Date: January 24, 2003 at 20:54
It seems that us meditterenean people can appreciate good music better than others. For the rest of you, stick to your MTV idols. DA VINCI is up there with the best. And that is a fact!!

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: March 6, 2003 at 17:42
Es curioso lo de estos grupos escandinavos el toque distintivo que le dan a su música,ya sea la utilización de los coros,los solos y los mismos teclados...incluso las voces,se notan a mil leguas que son de alli.Y estos Da Vinci no van a ser menos,yo les encuentro influencias de todos los grupos de por alli,un poquito de Return,algo de Dalton,Talk Of The Town,Alien incluso en algún tema a los mismisimos Sha Boom.Tipico disco de banda escandinava que si te va este palo seguro te gustará.BUEN DISCO

From: RED-DEATH Date: April 29, 2003 at 19:03
WOW!..EUROPE HITS BACK..YOU GET THIS ALBUM ITS EUROPE ALL OVER AGAIN..BRINGS A TEAR TO MY EYE AND MY BOTTOM LIP TREBLES...JUST THOUGHT HOW LONG AGO EUROPE WAS..GOOD ALBUM WORTH A LISTEN THOUGH

un Diamante en bruto del 89' No os lo perdais!!

From: Gunnar Westlie Date: January 17, 2004 at 12:59
Hello everybody..I love the album myself,and me and Dag Selboskar is starting up again with a new band.Same kind of songs ...AOR forever.....

From: Scandinavia Date: January 17, 2004 at 16:48
Til Gunnar: Hvad kommer det til at lyde som?? Stadig DA VINCI stilen??

From: Gunnar Westlie Date: January 21, 2004 at 19:24
Gi meg E post adresse og jeg sender deg en demo

From: AORRULEZ Date: January 31, 2004 at 9:09
Please ! Someone know where can I download any MP3 of this band ?? Just want to know if they're as good as Europe and Treat If it really worths the $$$ on ebay

From: Scandinavia Date: January 31, 2004 at 9:14
It's not neccessary to download their stuff...Take it from me...They're not half as good as the other bands you mention.

From: Date: January 31, 2004 at 9:25
thanks for answering ... anyway .. Is there any band you consider as good as Treat ?

From: Scandinavia Date: February 1, 2004 at 9:36
I'd personally recommend: Skagarack, Shy, Valentine, Red Dawn...Generally bands in that vein. Treat are hard to beat though...

From: Date: February 1, 2004 at 9:50
thanks

From: Scandi Date: February 2, 2004 at 18:11
> is a fantastic hardrock tune!! However: Anybody out there to sell me the collection 'Best of Norwegian Hardrock' ?! email: cornelius_groth@yahoo.de THANX!!

From: Scandi Date: February 2, 2004 at 18:13
Sorry.. wanted to say 'Touchdown' is a fantastic.. (see above)

From: Terje Date: February 10, 2004 at 5:51
Til Gunnar Westlie: Jeg ser her at du er i ferd med å danne ett nytt band. Hvis dette er AOR slik det virkelig var i de gamle gode tider, da ville også jeg bli meget takknemlig for en demo. Du kan kontakte meg på; terje.meisingseth@tdn.no Mvh Terje

From: Dreamhunter Date: February 18, 2004 at 18:26
I've just picked up this album ... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED MATERIAL !! I'm sorry 'Scandinavia' but I found this record to be as good as Europe's Out of this world or Treat's Dreamhunter ...

From: erik Date: February 25, 2004 at 11:04
Excellent album. The kind of music thats lasts. You can still play it loud and doesnot sound outdated. Love it ! Aorrulez if you want the songs i can help you. Contact meat erikhardam@hetnet.nl

From: Dreamhunter Date: February 26, 2004 at 14:31
Erik .. 'AORRULEZ now posts as Dreamhunter' .. thanks for the help but now I have a copy of this record .. and it is EXACTLY as you described ... KILLER ALBUM !

From: montenn Date: April 15, 2004 at 0:08
if you don't own this cd then you are missing out on what melodic rock is all about.this band should have been huge.just as good as treat/dalton/amaze me/dominoe/skagarack/europe.buy this cd at any cost you will not be disappointed.

From: TIM (2) Date: June 7, 2004 at 5:46
Disappointed to see the rating of this one reduce so much, but it's a real scandi classic. 'Call Me a Liar' is a bit Eurovision, but huge keyboards and a magnificent chorus are what this music is all about. I agree with Dreamhunter above, every bit as good as the best Europe/Treat/Dalton albums, and depite some bizzare lyrics ('Circus Maximus' and '9 & 10') and the fact that the quality tails off towards the end, it's worth every penny on eBay.

From: Gunnar Westlie Date: November 21, 2004 at 15:00
Our new band is called EIDSIVATING....Solook out...

From: Roy Date: November 29, 2004 at 18:41
Hey guys, I heard a song awile ago called 'Close to the Edge of a Broken Heart' or something like that. I'm almost positively sure it's a Da Vinci tune since I've heard some of the band's material. Where is it from though? I don't see it listed on neither two albums.

From: TIM (2) Date: November 30, 2004 at 2:32
Roy, It's on 'Unfinished Business' their 3rd (unreleased) album. If you like their first 2 then track it down as it's every bit as good. You should find it on eBay...

From: Erik Date: December 30, 2004 at 6:36
Roy drop me a line and i can help you out with some of the Unfinished Business songs. erikhardam@hetnet.nl And yep like Tim says its just as good.

From: tomcat Date: December 30, 2004 at 7:06
hey erik, are u cheating on me? hehe, anyhow, this is a cool album... fave song: circus maximus

From: Erik Date: December 30, 2004 at 11:36
You caught me redhanded Tom !

From: guillermo Date: January 11, 2005 at 4:14
album bueno melódico aunque extraño. Hay un par de temas realmente matadores y el resto es escuchable aunque para ser un clásico le falta 'punch'. A años luz de Europe en su mejor momento. A ver si lo reeditan.

From: Geoff Date: February 10, 2005 at 6:57
I might have listened to his album more than most I own as it came to me in a time when I was just getting into the Euro melodic stuff and I couldn't release it from my ears. 'Call me a liar' is just sensational, the ballads are stunning and every single song contains a million dollar hook or two. As noted above, some very cheesy lyrics but when the songs are this good, slap my scrotum and turn up the volume! Just enjoy the excellence!!!

From: z4roxx Date: February 10, 2005 at 11:47
Da Vinci was a great band,this one is personally is my favorite but the other one is awesome,too.Songs as'touchdown','call me a liar','9 & 10'ect.are marvellous!!But IMO'Million like us'is somethin'immense!!What a tune!!I could throw myself from the window!!ahahaha!!

From: orietto Date: February 11, 2005 at 4:37
z4roxx don't throw out of the window as you could crash on the floor and we can't laugh anymore reading all the great 'porcherie' you're writing everyday on this site....ahahahahahahahahahahahaha

From: z4roxx Date: February 11, 2005 at 18:17
Ok Orietto,I don't throw myself to the window only to continue laughin'with you and all the dupes ahahahahaha!!My english is the funniest thing here ahahahaha!!!

From: iacob cristian Date: February 14, 2005 at 14:19
All I can say it's that Da Vinci is equal to Treat and Dalton.Europe it's by far the best scandinavian band but Da Vinci comes closer in their back togheter with Dalton and Treat.The 'Back In bussiness' album really rocks with tracks like 'Touchdown','Call Me A Liar','Young Hearts','9 and 10' and 'Turn Down The Lights'.A magnific band !

From: iacob cristian Date: February 14, 2005 at 14:22
All I can say it's that Da Vinci is equal to Treat and Dalton.Europe it's by far the best scandinavian band but Da Vinci comes closer in their back together with Dalton and Treat.The 'Back In bussiness' album really rocks with tracks like 'Touchdown','Call Me A Liar','Young Hearts','9 and 10' and 'Turn Down The Lights'.A magnific band !

From: Muddley Date: February 14, 2005 at 15:39
Well I dont agree with Jacob at all. Here is my all time favorite top 10 Scandinavian hard rock bands ever.

From: Muddley Date: February 14, 2005 at 15:40
1. Europe 2. Pretty Maids 3. Royal Hunt 4. TNT 5. Skagarack 6.reat King Rat 6.

From: Muddley Date: February 14, 2005 at 15:40
1. Europe 2. Pretty Maids 3. Royal Hunt 4. TNT 5. Skagarack 6.reat King Rat 6.

From: Date: February 14, 2005 at 15:43
1. Europe 2. Pretty Maids 3. Royal Hunt 4. TNT 5. Skagarack 6. Great King Rat 7. Fate 8. Pole Position 9. Masquerade 10.Torben Schmidt Solo.

From: Geoff Date: February 14, 2005 at 19:26
Yeah, got to agree with Muddley. Europe the best Scandinavian band? Of course it's all a matter of opinion, but I can think of dozens better. That's like saying Bon Jovi is the best US band. Europe may be the most popular, and 'Prisoners in Paradise' is a sensational disc, but I think overall there are dozens of better Scandinavian bands, IMO.

From: z4roxx Date: February 15, 2005 at 8:52
I find Da Vinci more complete than Dalton but maybe little inferior to Treat as songwriting and arrangements,IMO.But the Da Vinci refrains are among the best in Scandinavian scene indeed.Da Vinci were great!!

From: z4roxx Date: February 15, 2005 at 8:56
Maybe you forget other 2 bands:Glory and Stormwing???

From: TIM (2) Date: February 15, 2005 at 9:07
I'd have to put Skagarack at the top of the pile. Barely a duff track on any of their first 3 albums. Da Vinci and Europe would be very close IMO, but Glory only made one good album (their first) and Stormwing are great if you just listen to the EP, sadly the S/T album is very patchy. I notice Alien and Jim Jidhed's solo albums aren't in the list, and probably should be...

From: z4roxx Date: February 15, 2005 at 9:11
Agree about J.Jidhed,a killer masterpiece indeed.Glory I mean'danger in this game'but Stormwing is one of the best,IMO.There other band to put in that list but now I don't remember any name....Alien great indeed with also Snake Charmer/smoke and mirrors,I love P.Sandberg voice!

From: Erik Date: February 16, 2005 at 2:48
Europe the best ? You gotta be kidding me. Yeah commercially they had the most success but no way you can call them the best Scandi band. Bands like Skagarack, Da Vinci, Great King Rat, T'Bell, Alien and Dalton are way and i mean way better. Where Europe came to second base maybe the forementioned bands all easily hit home runs. Period.

From: Geoff Date: February 16, 2005 at 4:46
Yeah, sorry to post here, but as far as Scandi bands go I don't think any match Treat or Fate and DaVinci, Pretty Maids, Amaze Me and TNT are in a class of their own. I think Skagarak, Dalton, Glory and Pole Position (debut only) are better than most Europe releases, but I'll give Europe their due with 'Prisoners in Paradise'. Whilst IMO their other releases were average, that is one hell of a stunning release. There are plenty of great Scandi bands out there though.

From: z4roxx Date: February 16, 2005 at 9:13
Pole Position(debut)is one of the best indeed but we can't forget Masquerade debut,IMO.

From: z4roxx Date: February 16, 2005 at 9:27
I think who writes that Europe are the best in Scandinavia doesn't know the other bands(Dalton,Skagarack,Da Vinci,Glory,Pole Position,Masquerade,Renegade,Fate,Treat ect..)

From: Nanteau Date: February 17, 2005 at 17:54
I disagree... Europe IS the best of those scandi-bands because they are the most consistent. And, of course, they were featured and supported more than all the others BUT they did the best out of it. So they deserve to be number 1! Indeed, bands like Skagarack,Da Vinci,Heaven follow very close behind! To add some more then come Line Up,Treat,Fate,Glory,Tindrum,Madison etc. I like Royal Hunt very much as well but they are slightly different to the beforementioned, so they get an extra place

From: Nanteau Date: February 17, 2005 at 17:56
..and I really know them all (except e.g. STORMWING --think they would be on my list too..)

From: Beto Date: February 17, 2005 at 21:01
Y donde quedo Nation para mi sobre todo el segundo un disco muy completo. And what happen with Nation? a great band,sorry for my english

From: Erik Date: February 18, 2005 at 2:16
Someone who writes that europe is the best of the scandi melodic rock scene cannot be taken very seriously in my humble opinion.

From: orietto Date: February 18, 2005 at 13:15
great release but everyone knows about it so i think too much talking about it is waste of time...eehh felpao è senza denari ma punta su tutto anche i loud silence boh! evviva il manicomio

From: z4roxx Date: February 18, 2005 at 14:53
Sorry mate but Line Up and Madison are not among the best indeed!!Agree about Royal Hunt but they are very particular and different from the others band.But they are unique and amazing anyway,IMO.

From: iacob cristian Date: February 20, 2005 at 15:23
I like very much Da Vinci , top scandi band , but people Europe it's the best by far.All Europe albums are fenomenal , and tell me which of the scandi bands can make an album like Europe's 'Final Countdown' or 'Out Of This World' ? After Europe , comes Treat,Da Vinci,Dalton,Alien,Bad Habit and Talk Of The Town.

From: The Dolphin Date: February 20, 2005 at 16:13
The demos of Da Vinci after this album are beautiful!!!Listen to 'Breatless'...pure scandi aor

From: z4roxx Date: February 20, 2005 at 18:16
I think'Final Countdown'is a great piece of commercial melodick rock made for families,'Out of this world'is my fave with'Prisoners in Paradise'and I consider both one of the best scandi cd's as ever...but I put at the same level the first 2 Bad Habit releases(even if I prefer these 2),Treat/dreamhunter,Skagarack(2nd and 3rd cd's),Da Vinci/back in business,Masquerade/s.t.and others,too.Finally we can say that all these bands could be put at the same level so everyone will be glad I hope!ahaha!

From: Erik Date: February 21, 2005 at 3:23
Yep Dolphin, Breathless is one hell of a 'scandi' track !

From: iacob cristian Date: February 21, 2005 at 8:25
yes z4roxx , you're wright , all of the scandi aor bands are very good and for me are the best in the melodic hard rock scene.

From: Nanteau Date: February 21, 2005 at 13:56
O yes.. I forgot to mention BAD HABIT -what a damn shame- whose ep & first album are on second place in my rating list of scandi bands. And, by the way, why d'ya always laugh so, Roxxy ??? Reminds me of Terence Hill or Butt Spencer in the old italien western films.. those were the days..

From: Nanteau Date: February 21, 2005 at 14:01
Should add that LINE UP -for me- is very very close to DA VINCI and that makes them classics, Roxx. OK, thing with MADISON is not right .. actually like only two tunes from their first so tilt them

From: The Dolphin Date: February 21, 2005 at 14:49
Yeah Erik,another great song of the demo is Wait for you.I think the demo songs are better than this album(in a very aor key)

From: Erik Date: February 25, 2005 at 1:58
I can go along with that Dolphin. The demo songs truly are very very good:

From: DaVinci1989 Date: March 5, 2005 at 5:16
I was wondering if these guys ever did a video or have any live material(taped). Was searching desperately over Kazaa and emule but couldn't find nothing. anyone knows ???

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 16, 2005 at 13:34
Good Melodic Rock/AOR album, Tan bueno como el primero incluso mas parejo, pero sin los 2 temazos del anterior con esa energia, aca no tan duros como el debut pero con buenos cortes Hold Back the Tears, Last Time, Call Me a Liar, Millions Like Us, Young Hearts(un baladon), Circus Maximus... muy completo si amas lo escandinavo este es otro disco Imprescindible en tu coleccion. un grupo similar a Glory o Talk of the Town y por momentos a Dalton.

From: ROBERT Date: April 16, 2005 at 14:28
Tengo un disco d Demos d este Grupazo q es la Leche!! Haber kien es el Guap@ q ne dice cual es su Grupo Escandinavo favorito... Hay tanto dd elegir q es casi imposible kedarse con un solo Grupo/disco... De vez en cuando descubre un grupo d estas Gloriosas epocas q nos paso desapercibido en su momento... Yo ultimamente he descubierto un buen puñao d grupos y discos d HARD MELODICO ESCANDINAVO.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 16, 2005 at 18:00
Hola ROBERT yo soy el guapo jaja(ademas de serlo) que te dice cual es el mejor album que haya salido en esas tierras, Alien - Alien simplemente porque jamas escuchare un grupo con un album asi, con ese sonido LEGENDARIO y a la vez MISTERIOSO que envuelven los temas, mi album favorito hasta ahora de todos junto a los Strangeways, solo basta mencionar Brave New Love y cualquier grupo queda temblando y el resto de temas en la misma linea. A ver quien otro se atreve a mejorar este disco. Saludos.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 16, 2005 at 18:02
Quiero ver respuestas esto puede convertirse en un tremendo debate.

From: Lovedrive Date: May 17, 2005 at 9:00
Escandinavo del bueno! Grupo con clase, muy en la onda Europe y con temazos como este: CALL ME LIAR

From: gaupesjefen Date: May 18, 2005 at 16:03
Hello good people..Gunnar Westlie and Dag Selboskar are now producing and mixing the debut from their new band EIDSIVATING. There are also plans for a new davinci record..On Eidsivating`s new website(soon finished..eidsivating.com)there will be a link to davinci materials.. (mp3`s and videos..) Dag.

From: headbanger4life Date: November 1, 2005 at 1:47
Awesome.....pure and simple. There is no other way to put this release. I wish they still made music like this. I feel like I am in AOR heaven when I listen to this one.

From: mauricio Date: November 13, 2005 at 16:49
hi-from COSTARICA,como no voy a quejarme si soy el tipo mas feliz del mundo si ya compre y tengo en mis manos BACK IN BUSINESS otra joya del rock melodico escandinavo y como no va a serlo si es del 89 y como DA VINCI ha dejado su marca con solo 2 discos que un grupo con 10 o 12 discos,no obstante los 2 discos gran ejemplo del rock escandinavo muy megadificiles de buscar y en ebay tengas que codearte con 40-60 personas detras tuyo solo por tener uno de estos 2 discos de los chicos de oslo

From: mauricio Date: November 13, 2005 at 16:50
estos los DA VINCI.hoy por hoy se les ve futuro que estos discos sean reeditados. va a ser todavia mas dificiles que buscarlos en ebay, yo ya lo tengo.por lo visto polygram noruega es la que posee todos los derechos de estos 2 discos y no habra señal de que sea relanzados.sin embargo este BACK IN BUSINESS esta muy pero muy bueno ROCK MELODICO CON CLASE Y ELEGANCIA QUE DERROCHAN LOS NORDICOS WOW.desde la apertura de TOUCH DOWN la cosa se pone muy buena

From: mauricio Date: November 13, 2005 at 16:50
con esas guitarras y esos teclados muy bien complementados muy melodicos muy en plan EUROPE/TREAT una vez mas LARS AASS recuerda mucho a JOEY TEMPEST.siguiendo con CALL ME A LIAR y la matadora balada YOUNG HEARTS me quede frio cuando la oi por primera vez.la melodica 9AND10.al igual que su DA VINCI este BACK IN BUSINESS es asi mismo muy excelente muy completos ambos y el sonido del BACK IN BUSINESS es aun mejor si tienes la oportunidad de tenerlo en tus manos no te lo pienses 2 veces y ve

From: mauricio Date: November 13, 2005 at 16:51
consigue el tuyo antes que sea muy tarde claro que si vale la pena pagar por este diamante melodico otro 10/10 y 10/10 a mi por tener este, el debut y UNFINISHED BUSINESS mas precioso una pena que no apárezca en este sitio=blame it on the radio-every highway-breathless-aint no goodbyes-how many miles-wait for you-wont be the one-last generation-close to the edge-one of a kind-where the eagles die-action-stand up-shadow dance-electric lady-the light. 10/10 (maujobarksott@hotmail.com)

From: juan carlos Date: May 18, 2006 at 23:30
Excelente disco de estos escandinavos que hacen un AOR a lo dalton y demás pero menos fuertes pero para nada malo al contrario. Temas lentos como "young hearts" "turn down the lights" y "circus maximus" estas 2 ultimas buenísimas. Y los demas entre medios tiempos y temas alegres. Me quedo con todas. Un disco que me ha encantado mas los de treat o glory. Con esto les digo todo. Recomendadísimo. 9.4/10

From: hardrock90.00 Date: June 11, 2006 at 21:52
Anyone knows about a 3rd release called 'UNFINISHED BUSINESS'? But this one is a great CD from the first to the last song. This is one cd that you must have!

Hey people Da Vinci are just great. I know their drummer Jarle Måløy. He now lives at Storsteinnes, not far from where I live. He's got a new band which I think is awsome. They call themselves "THE MAUDLIN HOUNDS" and they released their first album "Somersaulting" in June this year. Great songs, "in your face" rock 'n' roll. Check 'em out at www.maudlinhounds.com THE MAUDLIN HOUNDS

Good CD. Touchdown and Call Me A Liar are my favorites but the whole album is pretty good. If you like AOR/80's rock then you should like it. Stands up to other bands of the genre - Europe, Zinatra, Treat, Dalton, Autograph, etc. Better than Dalton and just as good as Treat but not as good as Europe or Autograph in my opinion. 7.5/10 Man, Touchdown is a really good song though.

Awesome scandi rock,this stuff is usually to lite weight 4 my tastes but the songs are just so damn good(great production as well)that I can`t help being won over.Favorite trax have to be opener` touchdown`(the most hard rocking tune here)and euro cheese ballard `young hearts`(Terry Wogan would love this one!!!)seen some comments compare this to TREAT but thats way off the mark as this is quite soft in comparison...8/10

Much the better of the 2 Da Vinci releases and excellent all round, with a slightly more American flavour than some of the other Scandie releases of the time. Well deserving it's long overdue re-issue, this is another Scandie Essential to add to the collection. Hopefully MTM will do something with the bands excellent Demo's that have been around for ages, of which the bonus track featured here is one.

Actually some good tunes on every of their two releases, but not more. Maybe another legend that falls.. Here "Touchdown" & "Hold back the tears" have a crispy edge & good hooks, the rest lacks it for my taste. "Circus maximus" still may be a nice ballad but the so beloved "Call me a liar" is too poppy for me. It is very melodious, of course, but I don't like the stretched vocals. So, all in all, this is NOT a better release than their first effort IMO -- neither their worse.

En la onda del anterior, pero en mi opinión, no tan bueno como aquel. Destacan "Touchdown", "Hold Back The Tears" y por supuesto, el mejor corte de este disco que es la maravillosa "Call Me A Liar". Y Claro que Si, recomendado si lo nuestro es el Hard AOR escandinavo, por supuesto que Si.

Super obra igual al primero temas muy compactos otro buen trabajo de Da Vinci ..

From: rocknroll Date: May 10, 2008 at 19:42
This is a must have for all melodick rock fans! 8/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 22, 2010 at 15:33
Very good album by this lot Da Vinci...songs are into the melodic rock/aor territory,actually, the "noise" that we love to hear always...hahaha...talking about the album,as usual and the way it has 2 be,a good opening song "Touchdown",then "Call Me A Liar" with that catchy chorus..another outstanding tracks are "Million Like Us","Pink Champagne","Hold Back The Tears"(the best track along with "Call Me...")and a great finale.."Last Time".For people who know what this genre is all about.88/100

Una joya de disco sin duda este y el primero, como dicen ahi arriba deberian reditarlos y remasterizarlos, uno delos mejores grupos noruegos como TNT y Stage Dolls.
