¿ALGUIEN ME PUEDE DECIR q tal esta este disco, de los genios q crearon GOTTHARD? thanks so much!!

From: koogles Date: March 21, 2003 at 17:29
INCREDIBLE! Better than Gotthard. Big punchy keyboards strike high in the mix, excellent mid-tempo AOR tunes reminiscent of Alien's debut, Treat's "Dreamhunter" or Harlot's "Room With a View", awesome production. I'm writing this CD up for a friend's eBay auction description and it's a bit painful because I want it for my own collection!!

From: jessica96fish Date: March 2, 2004 at 20:48
forget the gotthard thing.this ain't in the same race.but don't get me wrong its a good enough cd.lots of keys and steve lee on vocals has to be worth a listen.but if i had to choose.i think you'd be better off getting gotthards home run.now thats an album

From: rocky Date: April 19, 2004 at 8:27
hi KOOGLES...why don`t you buy it from aorheaven then,they sell it now for 18 euro......

From: unknown Date: July 26, 2004 at 12:53
Hello everyone. Just heard this cd and I have to say it's too mellow. Great to fall asleep to. As far as the Gotthard likeness goes, I'd agree with them sounding like Gotthard's ballads. Stick with Gotthard and you won't be disappointed.

Un poco copia de Boston, pero bonito disco

From: the game Date: February 12, 2005 at 18:07
Forsale is an average mellow band. If you like the harder side of Gotthard stay away from this CD. The only real outstanding track is Stranger In Town. There is some good guitar playing but not enough to make this a true Hard Rock CD. I rate this at best 6/10.

From: Geoff Date: February 26, 2005 at 8:36
Imagine Gotthard's debut without the guitarist, without the killer punch, with keyboards, and basically without all the elements that made Gotthard a great hard rock band. This is nice AOR, but it just plods along harmlessly, containing a few nice AOR tracks along the way, before ending without really making a dent in your listening hopes. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice AOR disc - very nice at times, but it really ain't that great... IMO. Recent Gotthard are much better.

From: ladybloody Date: March 22, 2005 at 12:01
Esta bastante bien,es verdad que es tipo Boston jejej Un 7,5 de 10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 15, 2005 at 22:46
Good Hard/AOR album, claro que si un buen disco, con buenos cortes a lo largo del disco Night Spell(la mas completa y mi favorita)y No Time No Chance las que mas van a mi ritmo jeje, por ahi algunas que no calan pero el resto estan Ok.

From: SCANDI Date: February 27, 2006 at 10:54
Looking for that album only for the "UB 40-like" song "Carry on" (It's the only song I know of this album). Don't get me wrong --it's a pure melodic rock song but with that happy reaggy feel to it. Sadly, I didn't buy that album when I recently saw it for 35 Euro new. I had to think twice --and then it was ..gone. & rocky: That were times ..for 18 Euro. I don't know..

From: juan carlos Date: February 13, 2007 at 13:43
Raro disco de AOR pero que vale la pena tenerlo. Si que tiene algo de Boston ("Only Love"), el solo en "Carry On" me recuerda al de John Cougar (del ´79 Discazo!!). Como se ve no un grupo original pero bien bonito el disco, los teclados la hacen muy bien aquí. "Stranger in Town" es mi favorita junto a "Call my Name" o "Night Spell". En "Run For Life" suena a grupo antiguo, mucha influencia de los ´70s. 8/10

From: ashen_light Date: August 11, 2007 at 12:06
Just like someone already mentioned it on the forum-THIS IS NOT GOTTHARD. I bet u anything most people compare FORSALE to GOTTHARD because of the same country of origin and the fact that the vocalist and guitarist performed in both bands, completely forgetting that the two play different styles. But it doesn;t mena that FORSALE is an average release-this is an manificent kerboard driven AOR that will appeal to fans of first Skagarack, Alien, Treat, etc...I am not sure of the information on aorhe

From: ashen_light Date: August 11, 2007 at 12:07
Great CD; get it if you find it cheap.

From: mannas Date: November 15, 2007 at 19:28
guter melodic rock!klingt wie die härteren gotthard,aber nicht ganz so gut!90/100 coolmohr@web.de

From: aorluver Date: December 18, 2008 at 9:33
This is really definition of AOR They sound so american you would never believe they hail from the Continent. Very good musicianship, melodies , harmonies and so on . but they are too cliche to me. All in all A DECENT ALBUM

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 17, 2010 at 21:52
Steve Lee died recently..a great vocalist has left us ...this band was a previews one he had before joinning the mighty Gotthard...listeneable Hard Rock/AOR,not the best album ever done by Lee but obviously it was the beginning of his magnificent career that took off after this band..."Only Love" & "No Time No Chance"(AOR) are pleasant ones to the ears,"Rollin' On" rocks good,"Night Spell" is an excellent one,"Call My Name" is a pretty soft song and "So Long" is a solid short instrumental...as a collector's item this is very interesting to have...89/100

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVAcrCitm94 TAKE THIS GREAT REMEMBERING VIDEO ABOUT STEVE!!!

From: elljam Date: July 11, 2012 at 5:27
I didn't even realise it was Steve Lee singing when I heard this as the vocals, while very good didn't have the same power that he showed in Gotthard. The music has an American AOR feel to it with a couple of harder rocking tracks thrown in for good measure. It was never going to be in the same league as Gotthard (but then what is ?)but stands up pretty well on it's own merits. Highlights are "Carry on", "Rollin' on" & " Run for life".

From: 123charpenay Date: July 11, 2012 at 13:37
ok with elljam when i listen this record i think "it s not steve lee it s a joke".very very average album nothing special.common aor(no personality) without any interest.

From: titothetitan Date: November 6, 2019 at 11:12
I agree. Very average album. Sure it has some cool keyboards and some nice riffs here and there but that's it. Production is bad,just listen to the drum sound - it sounds more like a hammer beating on a metal plate. Even Steve Lee sounds annoying at times.
