|After all the pre-release hype on this I was definitely expecting a return to their early style. What theyve actually done is perfectly merge an updated/modern sound with those gloriously catchy harmonies. It's still very powerful,but all 11 choruses are stunning. And 'Hanging On' is their best ballad since the S/T album. This is more of a grower than 'Higher'/'WotW',with only the irritating cymbol so high in the mix ('Reality' really suffers) letting the side down. Otherwise essential. 9.5/10.

|As expected, Harem Scarem deliver the goods again. 'Next time around', 'Caught up in your world', 'Hanging on', 'Starlight' and the album highlight 'Tommorow may be gone' are all excellent. The title track is very good too, and the only track I don't like is 'Give love/Get love'. Great verses/pre-chorus, awful chorus. Shame. The rest of the songs are all quite good. As noted, this album treads back upon the 'Higher' sound and is another great addition to the Harem Scarem collection.

|O.K., We all know I'm a huge fan of this band, but give credit where credit is due...and it is due here!!! Is it the best they have ever done, no, but it is one of their best. Every bit as good as 'WOTW' or 'Higer'. Mixing elements of classic era Scarem sound with 'Voice Of Reason' era sound. Even the more melodic moments of 'Overload' can be felt here. 'Give Love/Get Love' reminds me of Queen. It all gels nicely for a very cohesive effort. Overflowing with addictive choruses. A MUST HAVE!!!

|Liked a lot this cd,better than the previous,another amazing work from the canadian quartet.Even if I don't like so much this modernisms in sounds and arrangments I always love every work by them(except a couple of albums in the middle of 90's).My rate would be 9,5/10!

|Except for the not-so-good 'Give Love/Get Love' which has a lot QUEEN flavor and not fit them, the rest of the album are tremendous. Harem Scarem is back to their melodic roots and still not sounded so vintage, they put some slightly dark and modern elements from 'Voice of Reason' and 'Overload' session, but very well balanced with classic AOR feel. 'Hanging On' is a monster ballad, 'Starlight' is a super-anthemic rock, and I also like the acoustical bonus track, 'Higher'. This is essential!

|Mmmm difficult one this. The only songs I really dont like are 2 & 7. All the others are respectable HS songs. Thing is, the only killer track is 'Tomorrow May Be Gone' and to be honest I was expecting more from this release. Competent well played melodic rock, but below the standard of say WOTW or Higher. Their next album will apparently be their last - let's hope that compares in quality to songs like 'saviours..' & 'WOTW' which is HS sound I really love!

|I really hope this is the last studio cd.Last 2 releases sound like MTV artist and maybe are great for a child.Samey riffs,same melodick lines,too modern sounds for my tastes.

|GOOD CD 87/100 very good AOR with great vocals harmonies and such a huge lead singer HARRY HESS rules !!!! Yes there is here and there some modernism but it fits very well the songs , so there is no problem ! Another strong release from one of the best AOR band ever ! BUY IT before it's too late

|This is a great Modern Melodic Rock release. It starts with the stunning title track and delivers some great hooks like 'Next Time Around' (This one could be easily featured on their debut), 'Caught Up In Your World', 'Starlight', and the closest thing to QUEEN I've ever listened to 'Give Love/Get Love'. The production is superb and it's one of their best albuns ever. BUY IT!.

|With this release, Harem Scarem racks up another conquest and carves another notch on their melodic hard rock bedpost. The band's trademark sound & style is all over this CD like the boogeyman pouncing on his pie-eyed prey, while the modern production techniques prevent it from sounding too retro and overly dated. Harry Hess & company apparently have melodic hard rock greatness embedded in their DNA and it really shows on this album.

|This is a great album!!!! Some really fantastic tunes here and a more melodic 'back to their roots' direction(combined with some newer elements of AOR) make this album a must have!!!!!!! Well done!!!!!!!!
