this is actually very decent effort...i was dissapointed with last two Magnum albums, and last Catley solo wasn't that good to me as to majority of others...this brings new approach in music, it's very heavy on the border between hard rock and heavy metal, like solo albums by Jorn Lande...1 or 2 fillers in sight( album it's too long IMO) but overally it's worth buying

Really getting into this one after a good few spins. The best of the material doesn't really appear until 'Last Snows Of Winter at song 5. After that 'The Fire Within Me','Judgement Day'' Lost To The Night' & 'End Of The Story' really shine & are each very very fine songs indeed. Bob's last album 'When Empires Burn' was better sonically than this & I do believe I hear a couple of cracks beginning to appear in the old magic Catley voice, otherwise this is business as usual and a fine album!!

I haven't really been into Bob's stuff for a while, but got to agree with the comments above. This is a good solid melodic hard rock album with some good songs. I think the first half of the album is very strong. The best I've heard from him in a long, long while.

THIS IS HIS BEST SOLO ALBUM EVER. What a great cd. I am realy loving it. All the songs are great. From the first till the last one. Some sound like old and classic MAGNUM but most of them sound more heavy metal. A little like RAINBOW but also like BLACK SABBATH with TONY MARTIN era (and some STRATOVARIUS+GAMMA RAY+HAMMERFALL sound into it). Very strong and great songs and its realy a buy or die release.

From: wzcj02 Date: March 15, 2006 at 20:29
A different release for Bob and not really for the better. A similiar sound but the different songwriting team really shows and for the worse. It's hard rock but largely not as catchy as "empire" or "legends". Some great choruses would have been good.

From: Axe-Machine Date: April 22, 2006 at 11:37
This album is great, but could have been a classic had some quality control been exercised and it had been trimmed to 9 or 10 tracks. As it is I feel the need to reach for the skip button when 'Fire Within Me', 'Name of the Cause' and 'Beautiful Mind' start playing, but make no mistake, 'Heart of Stone', 'Moment Of Truth', 'Blinded By A Lie' and 'Judgement Day' are excellent slabs of Melodic Hard Rock at it's finest. Overall, not quite Empires, but not far behind. Highly Reccomended.

Very Good Melodic Hard Rock, a ver seņores albums como este es lo que llamo Hard Melodico actual del bueno, no se porque la gente se preocupa tanto en apoyar a Europe si ellos ya son historia en mi caso no hago lo mismo con Dokken que es mi banda favorita pero ellos fueron los 80's y lo que sacaron despues no es lo mismo igual pasa con Bon Jovi o Europe, pero en esta epoca si hay verdaderos albums tanto de Hard Rock como Hard Melodico y albums como este asi lo demuestran asi que apoyen aca OK.

Tienes toda la razon Rafo estas bandas seran los que marcaran esta Epoca los que quizas hagan historia en este tiempo que claro no es tan agradable por las cosas que andan sucediendo, pero al fin de todo esto la musica lo es todo para mi y pues a estas bandas que crean albunes como la cual, pues se merecen toda las atenciones y ser criticadas a su manera... y a este trabajo actual no lo puedes dejar de escuchar es sencillamente genial... si es genial..

From: z4roxx Date: July 9, 2010 at 11:36
This man will be never wrong with a single track.Another killer album full of mega-hits.Not a single false step by this awesome artist.His solos'albums are also better than Magnum most of songs.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 28, 2012 at 19:09
Another good effort by Mr Catley!!!...yeah guys,he's been recording albums more or less in the same line and it has worked for him just fine ...in here the best cuts for me are "Heart Of Stone","Blinded By A Lie"(great!),"The Fire Within Me","Judgement Day","Lost To The Night" & "Walk On Water"...enjoyable...87/100

From: hair metal again Date: October 17, 2013 at 4:25
pretty good release by BOB CATLEY and his great band !the songs are very well performed and the musicianship is satisfying!the production isnt as clear as expected ,but this is due tio Frontiers Records i think!anyway this wont disapoint you with good songs like "blinded by a lie","heart of stone" and "lost in the night"!good stuff
