I was hoping that the reviews for this one were wrong. Unfortunately, they all pretty much sum this one up. I love alot of the bands stuff (especially the fabulous debut) & own all their albums, but it has to be said that this is very substandard to the point of embarrassment in places. Sure a good song is a good song & there are many of those on here, but with a dog of a production like the one on show here, I for one certainly wouldn't put my name against it. Quality control anyone.

The biggest culprit is the weedy ,tinny drum sound and it has to be said the guitars aswell, which if you listen closely, sometimes aren't even in time with the rest of the band - come back Vinny I say. The 'Ballads' disc isn't quite as bad as the debacle that is the 'Rockers' disc, but still doesn't come anywhere near up to scratch. So the question has to be Why???? by all means re-record older material, but at least try to do it some justice (like the recent Night Ranger album did).

In the day & age where we all cry out for quality product, this really will not do at all. I never thought that I would be slating this 'Thing'!! as much as I am doing and certainly not a Ten album.!!!!They have a new album coming out this year and I hope for one that it is a million times better than these 'Beer Coasters', otherwise they won't be getting any of my hard earned that's for sure. Gary Hughes shame on you!!!!

From: 7800°Fahrenheit Date: February 24, 2006 at 9:02
Honestly,I love this sort of live'straight into your veins'dirty sound.This is Rock.No Virtual reality.Burns is the one and only,but the more I listen,the more I like the guit lines.TIPS:1)Listen before you buy. 2)Don't care about the engineering,for now.Turn Treble down.3)Run this about...10 times before you judge.Overwrite the originals(Burns is hard to forget).OVERALL:Your tastes('Your heart is free').MYVOTE:8/10(Honestly,I don't want to start a flame,the boys take the field,again).

Interesting comments. 2) The engineering/production of an album is quite an important issue to most people. Have changed settings to try to make this sound better!!Conclusion - You can't turn Shite into chocolate!!!!3) Have played this plenty of times to judge it - it doesn't get any better however many time you play it!!!. To conclude -Sub standard product is just that and this is sub standard to the nth degree.

y estos el: THE TWILIGHT CHRONICLES... Q cantidad d nuevos lanzamientos!!!

From: meradona Date: July 12, 2006 at 4:59
Ya he conseguido el THE TWILIGHT CHRONICLES y tengo que decir que es un buen disco, aunque personalmente creo que nunca superaran sus primeros discos en especial the name of the rose y ten, decir que la produccion es bastante buena, vamos que no suena como el the robe, que lo jode la produccion pero aun asi un gran disco. Solo una pega el Chris este no supera en nada al guitar hero Vinny Burns, una gran perdida que creo que este grupo esta pagando, bueno en fin el chronicles un 7/10 siguen bien,

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 7:58
Ante todo tengo q reconocer q cuando descubri este grupo Ingles en el 96' alucine con esas Melodicas Heavy's con esa voz tan "Dulce" mezclado tan bien con esas teclas q endulzaban el resultado final, claro q entonces estaba el Gran Vinny Burns! Este nuevo tiene cositas interesantes, siempre bajo la perspectiva d una sola escuxa q solamente le e podido dar: HALLOWED GROUND - Me encanta la Intro d este largo Tema, Muy a lo Spellbound... THE ELYSIAN FIELDS - a lo Braveheart, con esos aires celtas a

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 7:59
THE ELYSIAN FIELDS - a lo Braveheart, con esos aires celtas a lo Dare q tanto le molan al Gary! me gusta bastante la verdad. THE PROLOGUE / ROME - Como le mola al grupo estos pasajes (Intros) instrumentales cargados d Teclados sinfonicos y bien orquestados... Se nota, pues lo hacen d PM! Parece mentira q sea una banda Hard rockera y no una Orkesta Filarmonica!!! Buenisimo Cambio d Ritmo a lo THE NAME OF THE ROSE, me encanta, muy currado!! Gary cantando como nunca, y la banda a pleno rendimiento.

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 7:59
Otro tema super Largo... THE CHRONICLES - Buen Riff d Guitarra... THE HEART GOES ON - Baladon, q me recuerda el comienzo a Dare y tb a algo d THE BEATLES?! Muy Buena, sin duda, una vuelta a los buenos tiempos. OBLIVION - Modernita, con virgueos guitarreos incluidos! Esta muy Chula, alejandose kizas un pelin del sonido clasico d Ten... THE TWILIGHT MASQUERADE - Vuelta al sonido d Gary en solitario del Precious Ones... TOURNIQUET - Normalita BORN TO THE GRAVE - Fantastico Organo/teclado con ese so

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 8:00
con ese sonido caracteristico d Hammond... Buen tema, totalmente clasico, con grandes coros y un estribiyo cautivador q me a enganxado. WHEN THE NIGHT IS DONE - THE EPILOGUE - Gran Final!! Epico Pomposo y Grandilocuente. Cada vez me recuerdan mas a los buenos tiempos d Asia y Magnum...Muxa Calidad. Para mi gusto muxo mejor q el anterior, y eso q solo le dado una escuxa a este!! pero ya se nota q estamos ante algo grande, Un retorno a las raices d los 2 primeros (con tokes Spellbound) La formacio

From: ROBERT Date: July 12, 2006 at 8:01
La formacion se nota consolidada, seria maraviyoso verles por aki en directo (Verdad Hermano Starbreaker ) Otro candidato a disco del año, y van... ¿Me estare poniendo enfermo con el p calor? Vaya añito d Novedades Grandiosas y retornos a lo Grande!!

From: Melo Date: December 1, 2006 at 1:46
i like all Albums from the boys,so i like this one too ! It`s not the best output from the band,but i like what i hear ! By the way....Vinny come back,please !!!

From: shoemaker Date: March 26, 2011 at 12:38
