Heavy Harmonies Review
From: Dan Date: March 18, 2003 at 1:02
There's a storm coming... and it's in the form of European AOR and hard rock releases on the Frontiers label, just now being distributed in the U.S. for the first time. I've been listening to their releases for quite some time, and now hopefully the masses will embrace the quality material coming from this label. Millenium's Angelfire is a perfect disc to choose as one of the point releases in the U.S., as it is damned near flawless in both quality and execution. From the outset the listener is enveloped in a cloak of sound; the majestic instrumental intro Nations right into the pounding riff-laden Shamen leave no doubt that melodic hard rock is here to stay! This is heavier-edged hard rock with loads of melodic hooks. Don't confuse this with any of the wimpy alterna-rock which is entirely too prevalent today in the states. This album will knock you out of your seat with towering choruses, crunchy metal-esque guitarwork and top-notch vocal work.

Imagine the vocal characteristics of Survivor or Harlan Cage, but set against a much heavier and richer instrumental backdrop. I'd point out individual songs as highlights, but there's only one problem with this: They're *all* damned good! From the heart-thumping rockers to the epic ballads, there's not a single negative point to this album. Welcome to the United States, Millenium. I hope you stay a while!

Rating: 95/100

Totally awesome CD! The review of this Cd is right on! Any fan of heavy, melodic music should own this CD. Straight up melodic power from start to finish!

From: JoseM(Spain)Sev Date: September 29, 2002 at 10:40
Great album, 8 of 10, J,Todd Plant, is not Jorn Lande (In Hourglas), but he sings very good, Todd Plant is more Melodic than Lande, but has less power than Jorn. the sound of this album is a lot better than "Hourglass".

From: JoseM(Spain)Sev Date: September 29, 2002 at 11:03
Gran CD, 8 de 10, J.Todd Plant no es Jorn Lande (en Hourglass), pero canta muy bien: Todd Plant es mas melodico que Lande, pero tiene menos fuerza que Jorn. El sonido de este album es muy bueno, mucho mejor que "Hourglass".

From: DIOMEDES Date: February 3, 2004 at 9:16
Coolest sound ever! Especially when you're on vacation on a greek island... Perfect for sumertime chill-outs!

From: Rockhead Date: March 27, 2004 at 9:17
This is one of THE melodic Rock mastrerpeices of the entire 90's. Everyrhing on this fits, grat songs, grat vocals and guitarwork, solid production even the artoek is cool. Shamen, Angelfire, Beyond The Edge of Time all winners. indeed there are NO fillers on this. A Must have

From: Geoff Date: January 8, 2005 at 2:22
There's not may posts on this one, but even in the few that there are, I notice that no one has pinpointed an individual song. And I understand why. It's because the quality of this CD rarely falters and each selection of heavy melodic rock is close to being as good as the previous track. I love Ralph's guitar style/sound, and overall this is just an excellent heavy melodic hard rock CD. Great songs, great sound. Very melodic. Highly recommended.

From: Heavy.AOR Date: July 10, 2006 at 7:35
BRILLIANT 10/10.

From: Blue Charvel Date: December 27, 2006 at 13:18
Wow, it's great... not much more to say. Very solid from a production and talent standpoint and it's got some killer tunes... however, I think I prefer the "Hourglass" release with Jorn on vox. Don't let that stop you from buying this though, this is some extremely powerful stuff and should not be overlooked.

From: Heavy.AOR Date: August 17, 2007 at 8:36
My heart and soul love this guitar riffs and GREAT composition and super vocal Todd for me like a for DAN 95/100.

The best Millenium/Eyewitness album. Very strong and simple melodies.

From: darobinson Date: April 9, 2008 at 19:22
Nice and heavy from the boys. Once again Santolla showcases his talents. The guy is good!!!!

From: -=Bratt=- Date: March 27, 2009 at 3:27
Wow! what a album!!! 10/10

From: shoemaker Date: May 2, 2010 at 8:24
After a while I must say something is missing here. The songs have a kind of melodieoverkill. They are all nice by first listen but no song stuck in my brain. I miss some edges and feeling here.
