Killer new release fom Gotthard. They are back to the early Hard Rock style and Steve Lee's vocals are awesome. With the addition of the killer guitarist Freddy Scherer ex China makes this cd even better. My fave tracks are Lift U Up, Cupids Arrow, Anytime Anywhere, Can't Stop,Stay for The Night. I hope they continue to stay on the Hard side. Rated 9/10.

From: ninjapeter Date: June 24, 2005 at 6:12
All right!!!, they went back to there early three albums on this one. Absolutely fabulous album, I love it a lot. There is not a bad song on the whole album. I am so hyped from this album it's hard to put into words. Keep it up Gotthard and you can't go wrong. I hope other bands today get the hint from this and start playing music again. If you find this at any price, grab it and don't let go. I recommend it and give it a 10/10.

From: Teer Date: June 25, 2005 at 8:54
What a great 'come back' ! They returned to their old grand rocking form again. And they added Freddy Scherer as a guitarist ( from the former top class act China, also haling from Switzerland) which was a fantastic move as he really spiced things up for Gotthard. A highlight of 2005 for me !! 9,5/10

From: Lovedrive Date: June 25, 2005 at 8:55
AWESOME!!! DISCAZO! Ahora mismo los putos amos. Otro gran disco, con grandes canciones como Lift U up, Stay for the night o I wonder. Y Steve Lee cada vez canta mejor 9/10

From: ROBERT Date: June 25, 2005 at 9:23
q super Grupazo!!! Q lujo!! ara mismo los putos amos absolutos!!Mi tema favorito sin duda el bonus track: CAN'T STOP Ara solo pido a Dios poder verlos por fin en directo!! No os los perdais por nada d este mundo!! Super Mega Recomendadisimo!!.....

Solid, hook driven rock. Consistent throughout, whether it be a straight-ahead rocker, or a ballad. Gets better every time I listen to it.

From: Geoff Date: June 28, 2005 at 20:10
I love Gotthard, but have always been confused why a large portion of their fanbase is so comfortable with average. I love a good hard rock song as much as the next guy, but I thought Gotthard had enough standard/straight ahead hard rockers in their collection (2nd and 3rd albums) be remain content. This is a very solid disc, but I think a step back from 'Homerun' and 'Human Zoo', where they excelled in song-writing and variety in song, whilst remaining melodic. Of the first 8 songs you have 4 a

From: Geoff Date: June 28, 2005 at 20:11
4 average hard rockers, all skippable if done by any other band, but Gotthard exude class, 1 great one ('I'm alive'), 2 nice enough ballads and a killer track in 'I wonder'. Tracks 9-12 are all killer hard rockers and what I like about recent Gotthard. The two ending ballads are pretty lame and 'Can't stop' is a good hard rocking end. I like this album a lot, but don't think Gotthard need to prove themselves to their fans with run-of-the-mill hard rock tracks like the first 3 songs on this CD. W

From: Geoff Date: June 28, 2005 at 20:12
What band can't record songs like that? Still, very good disc anyway. Simply a great band.

From: Wotty Date: June 30, 2005 at 13:48
Recommended to me by numerous people.Who were not wrong in their opinion of this cd.Well produced,sung and played.A big thumbs-up !!!!

This is more like it. Quality all the way. Can't say I dislike any track on this as they are all consistently good, but faves are definately 'All We Are' 'Dream On, 'Lift U Up'. The ballads are great aswell. This is just excellent Melodic Hard Rock all the way. I still prefer their last 'Human Zoo' album, but maybe time will tell. Highly Recommended

From: Marla (MJ) Date: July 1, 2005 at 15:37
Seriously......this album is SO AWESOME!!! I've had this for about 3 weeks now, and it's been played AT LEAST once every day. "Can't Stop" just blew me away. "Lift U Up".......does just that!!! GREAT song!!! "I've Seen An Angel Cry"....well, break out the tissues time for me...lol. "The Other Side Of Me"...another great tune!!! This is just the BEST album (IMO) to come along in a lonnnnnnng time. 10/10 for me...

From: TIM (2) Date: July 6, 2005 at 4:22
This is my first taste of the band & is a very impressive intro. I'm not fussed about the earlier songs on this but by mid-way it really gets into gear. A great vocal performance & some catchy choruses make this a real 2005 highlight. My favourite track by about a million miles is "I Wonder" with a simply magnificent chorus. Elsewhere "Stay for the Night" sounds incredibly like The Storm with Chalfant on vocals, and "...Angel Cry" is the best ballad. Too many songs, but still excellent. 8.5/10.

From: Splash Date: July 10, 2005 at 18:58
This is on my best of 2005 list already! I can't believe how great this band is and how they never get a notice in North America. Poison & Motley drop albums of lesser quality all through their careers and become massive this band releases what is just another stellar album in their catalogue and nothing. I don't understand but whatever you do buy this album. This is one of the best albums of the genre from any decade. Not many albums can compete! WOW

From: Geoff Date: July 20, 2005 at 1:03
I have to amend this as I am currently on record as saying that I think 'I'm alive' is a great song. I actually mixed it up, and 'Cupid's arrow' is the one I like. The first 3, 'I'm alive' and 13 and 14 are the only ones I don't like, especially 'I'm alive', which I really dislike. The rest are awesome tracks. Sorry, just wanted to clear that up

From: swriter Date: July 20, 2005 at 21:42
just a great feel good rock album, great songs, great sound, tons of songs, great overall and in the running for best of the year!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: July 21, 2005 at 3:34
I fully agree with Swriter : this is indeed a very good feel good rock album, and a bit heavier than their previous releases ! Good stuff !

From: Erik Date: July 22, 2005 at 15:48
What can i ay that hasnot yet been said. THESE GUYS ARE BACK !! Great melodic hard rock again. Together with Mr Hartmann THE two hardrock albums so far of 2005. Bombay Black following closely behind them

From: swriter Date: July 22, 2005 at 16:00
agreed, best hard rock album of the year no question!!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: July 23, 2005 at 4:47
Indeed, Erik and swriter : great hardrock album, no question about that ! But the best of the year so far, hmm. . ., I think that Masterplan, Edge Of Forever, Starbreaker, R. Rock and certainly Liesegang/White are stronger. But good it is !

Get this Gotthard if you ain't got it. After some so-so albums that strayed from the harder sound of their early work, this latest CD returns to their hard-edged, guitar-driven roots. And if you were one of those people who flapped your lips about about how the last few releases weren't catchy enough, the band has remedied your complaints by writing some very tasy hooks and sing-along choruses. Gotthard has done melodic hard rock fans a great service and delivered one of the best albums of 2005.

Otro nuevo triunfo de una superbanda. Cada disco que sacan se superan. Impresionante vocalista, coros, guitarras, etc. No puedo dejar de escucharlo!!!!

From: rocknroll Date: November 12, 2005 at 10:38
killer album! rocknroll style, great vocalist, nice melodic guitars. buy it!

From: Lennie Date: November 22, 2005 at 16:23
Great straight ahead melodic hard rock. This really is a fab bunch of songs. Killer tracks are 'Cupid's Arrow', 'Said & Done', 'I Wonder' and 'Cant Stop' - all are easily as good as anything on BJ's lastest effort. 'Seen an Angel cry' is a good ballad but slightly annoying - it's just all chorus?? Also, throughout most of the album the solos are just a tad restrained - I would have liked to them fly a bit more. Overall highly recommended 8.5/10

From: 80's Hard Rock Date: March 3, 2006 at 5:56
GREAT GREAT CD! Lift U Up is a great song. Can't believe this came out in 2005, good that some bands still play 80's hard rock! Buy this cd if you don't have it, you won't be dissapointed!

From: Figge Date: March 9, 2006 at 17:59
Awesome!!! Great traditional, commercial hard rock. One of the absolute best albums this side of 2000 and along with Allen/Lande and Masterplan the standouts of the year 2005. The bonus track "Can't Stop" is one of the albums highlights. Other favourite tracks: Cupid Arrow, I Wonder, Said & Done and Lift U Up.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: March 25, 2006 at 7:54
Siempre me han parecido una banda sobrevaloradisima y es que un par de baladas bonitas y un tema rockero en condiciones que es lo que real y unicamente traian sus discos anteriores,(algunos ni eso)me parece un pobrisimo bagaje como para que gocen de ese inexplicable fervor popular.Dicho esto diré que por fin pueden presumir de disco pues "Lipservice" es de largo el mejor disco que ha sacado Gotthard hasta la fecha y es que la cantidad de temas buenos se ha visto aumentada de manera notabilisima.

From: metalguf Date: March 27, 2006 at 6:15
Hey Blue Charvel. Why isn't "Arti Tisi" on this page?. They are from 1989 and they rock!!!!

From: Pablo UK Date: May 13, 2006 at 19:08
What a breath of fresh air this band is!! Forget comparing Gotthard to Bon Jovi and the like. Bon Jovi, sadly, are not a band any more... they are a business and their best days are long gone. It is now time for bands like Gotthard to pick up the mantle and take melodic rock forward. This album is a collossal step in the right direction. Yes, it's "feel good factor" stuff, but is this so bad?? "Anytime Anywhere" is rock in a bottle!!!!! Later folks.

From: the rocker Date: May 23, 2006 at 19:43
i believe this was the cd of 05. melodic with crunchy guitars great vocals, catchy songs sing along choruses. just a great cd with a few fillers.

From: tonedefhead Date: June 2, 2006 at 20:46
this is one killer album! being from england i'd never heard of them till stumled across them here on HH. now im gonna spread the word. best album iv'e heard in a long long time. this is in the cd player in the car now and thats where its stayin. am just gutted my works only a 2 minute drive down the road. makes me wanna get stuck in a jam, put the windows down and let everyone else hear just how great rock should sound!

From: Muddley Date: June 25, 2006 at 20:42
Try to look up www.youtube.com search for Gotthard. There are some cool videos there. I especially like the Downtown video. But the beautiful balled Heaven is also worth listening to. But check it out, There are many videos and Gotthard is an awesome band.

From: Muddley Date: June 25, 2006 at 20:44
BTW, check out the track Let It Rain on www.youtube.com GODDAMN can he sing or what.??

The best cd in 2005.

From: juan carlos Date: October 10, 2006 at 16:51
Excelente melodic Hardrock. No me parece maravilloso pero bien que hace renacer el Hardrock de antaño. Muchos temas como ya opinara amigo. Las melódicas me gustan mas que las rifferas. Buen disco. 8.9/10

From: Helix Date: November 13, 2006 at 11:00
you get your money worth with you get this cd. kick ass cd should be in everyone collection.

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 9, 2006 at 19:45
If you liked "Homerun" and "Human Zoo" then you will like this one too, as it is the natural evolution in the process. In terms of sound and song style it picks up where the other two left off, but with standout tracks like "Anytime Anywhere" and "I Wonder", I just think the songwriting is a little better this time around. I still long for the style of "G" or "Dial Hard". Recomended for fans of the band.

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: September 22, 2007 at 3:16
GREAT CD GOOD RETURN TO THEIR ROOTS !!! so go get it ! Only killer songs !/ GREAT HARD ROCK with a new modern edge and a terrific sense of melody STEVE LEE is one of the TOP 10 singer ever !!!honey for your METAL EARS ! 91/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 8, 2011 at 17:40
At this moment this is one of their most acclaimed albums by the media...plenty of good songs with that particular sound that the band provided...now that the band is gone after the sadly dead of Steve Lee,all their albums are a must,not because Steve's dead but because basically every single album of the band has amazing tracks and brilliant(or close to it)crystal clear production...hope the record company who owns the right of the band re-edits them with extra goodies ...songs?..."All We Are","Everything I Want"(nice ballad),"Cupid's Arrow"(rocky and catchy),"I Wonder"(catchy too),"I've Seem An Angel Cry"(beautiful and solid ballad),"Anytime Anywhere"(excellent)& "Said & Done"(another catchy one)...recommended album by all means...93/100

From: 123charpenay Date: June 6, 2012 at 12:56
the best gotthard album with their first record from 1992.they find on this marvellous realise the magic formula between pure hard rock and a o r.it s a monster cd.only killers only hits.steve lee was (rip)an extraordinary singer.the japan bonus track is like the rest.... A BOMB. shame on you, if you have not this masterpiece in your collection.

From: hair metal again Date: June 8, 2012 at 8:45
excellent hard rock release by GOTTHARD once again and in this one their songwriting level is beyond belief!all the songs are top class and the hooks are all over!it seems that those guys are one of the greatest european acts ever!i believe that this one is a useful addition in every hard rock collection!

From: Doug Date: August 24, 2017 at 16:10
Finally got my hands on this. Really enjoy it, all tracks except perhaps #12. Steve Lee, what a great vocalist he was.
