Vocalist Andreas Eklund is a great Tommy Shaw like singer, with as good a set of lungs. The second track "Lint" temporarily stops me going completely off, with it's more laid back rock feel. But from that song we go straight into "Method Of Madness", which by the time it's finished, with it's catchy and original harmony vocals, and big sing a long finish, it will be embedded in your mind forever. Damn this is good!

Great production and harmonies on this cd. The only thing I don't understand is all the weird chants in some of the songs. They're done well, but what was the point? Other than that, I kinda liked this cd.

From: Rockhead Date: April 16, 2004 at 5:37
Unique, Original, off the wall this CD is a melodic masterpiece mixing traditional AOR and melodic rock with eastern and african rythums and tradional chants all blended with Swedish know-how. Very strong songs and a strong production makes this a very pleasant surprise.

From: headbanger4life Date: January 25, 2006 at 21:57
Excellent AOR release. Great songs that are very melodic and catchy. I really like the vocals to. They are very original sounding. It's a shame that I have not heard a lot about this band. I happened to stumble across it and give it a shot. I'm glad I did. I can't wait to hear the rest of their material.

Vaya si hay que agarrarle su onda a este buen disco eh. Compositivamente el album es perfecto, mucha influencia africana y del lejano oriente en este aspecto y en lo musical tambien afecta de hecho pero para bien diré. "Methods of Madness" buen solo, "No.8" Lenta muy buena, "Who's Lying Now" mi favorita, "Remember" y la sentimental "Everything's Fine" cierra de manera excelente el disco. Buenos riffs, solos, la producción ayuda mucho, se han esforzado los muchachos y eso se nota. 8.5/10

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: October 30, 2007 at 3:25
GREAT CD 89/100 very SMART AdultOR with a very original blend of JOURNEYesque MELODIC ROCK with WORLD MUSIC flavored ROCK and some very good SWEDISH AOR B.VOCALS VERY INTENSE and really UNIQUE ! for openminded people not for the "fullofkeys3minutessongsaor-integrists"out there !

From: z4roxx Date: October 31, 2007 at 14:19
Bought this cd when it came out and sold after 2 listenings,I did find weak and boring,not a single original idea but....maybe now I should re-listen to it?

From: metalmaniac777 Date: March 27, 2010 at 9:21
I despised this CD so much when it was released that I threw it out of my house after just one listen for fear that it would pollute the rest of my collection. I know lots of folks consider this to be a great melodic rock album, but for me it was just a total offense to the ears. I would rather listen to the "Hips Don't Lie" pop-diva Shakira than these guys (OK, yeah, that's an exaggeration, but you get my point). I wouldn't give you the lint in my pocket for this CD.
