Outstanding melodic rock. Great song writing with very taleted guys. Benny Soderburg is the brains behind this group. He also has a great voice(sounds like Goran Edmund). I'd have to compar this with Malmsteen with Goran Edmund era.

yo conozco un grupo fortune americano de 1985 solo que su estilo es aor la disquera es mca records yo tengo un bootleg de ese disco en cd ya que es muy raro de conseguir pero muy recomendable rating 10/10

From: Reingold Date: October 18, 2002 at 9:38
Making Gold es una joya de disco. Hard Rock sueco con clase y estilo. Su cantante Benny Soderberg formó poco después Clockwise junto a Ian Haugland y John Levén (Europe) y también junto al guitarra de Glory,Jan Granwick. Sacaron dos discos Nostalgia y Näive y recomiendo encarecidamente el 1º.Ahí se nota un Benny cantando mucho mejor y con un timbre prácticamente idéntico al de edman.De todas formas este 1º disco de Fortune es para ponerlo en un pedestal.

From: Cesar Date: October 30, 2002 at 16:03
El cantante es muy parecido a Edman y, para un primer disco, el grupo mostraba mucho potencial. No he escuchado ningún otro por el momento.

this sucks...melodic?where are the melodies...keyboards don't mean exatly melodies...well played,no doubt,but boring...a waste of time and money

From: oliver Date: October 5, 2004 at 14:05
i´d agree. very average songs. hear it, forget it. and very poor vocals. still own it, but haven´t heard it for years.

From: Geoff Date: February 26, 2005 at 8:37
Decent hard rock... not really much more to say. It's not bad, but don't go out of your way to track it down.

Hello collectors, i had this MASTERPIECE on VINYL!!!!!!

From: ROBERT Date: February 15, 2006 at 10:29
Aqui tenemos a otros Fortune, esta vez Suecos, q hacen Hard Melodico... pero hay mas!! :rolle yes:

From: juan carlos Date: May 1, 2007 at 11:03
No un Masterpiece pero si un buen disco de Hardrock melódico Escandinavo, su mejor disco sin dudas. Te recomiendo éste pero su "Lord of Flies" es muy malo al menos para mí. En este disco sí que hay melodías, buenos solos, la voz a lo Goran Edman? un aire quizás por momentos pero no tanto ehh, Goran es un gran cantante subvalorado por muchos. La voz solo buena para mí, disco muy parejo en temas, dos o tres temas que no me van mucho. Para fans del hardrock escandinavo. 8.3/10

From: hair metal again Date: January 7, 2013 at 22:34
very good debut by FORTUNE and i d say it s a typical Swedish release with nice musicianship ,clear production and remarkable songs!it reminds me of the 2nd Europe release of its sound!"eyes of ice","anonymous lover","stormy roads" and "mindreader " are the highlights!good stuff

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 19, 2013 at 20:31
Nothing really outta this world for me...a decent album and that's all...tracks 1,3,4,8(a bit of a Whitesnake in here but without the real grace of it),11 & 12 are some songs that got my attention but...well,a matter of tastes...70/100
