Existing comments about this CD

From: TIM Date: April 25, 2002 at 9:54
I can't believe there are no comments here. Both versions of "Stealin' My Heart" are the highlights here. I think these guys are great. This album is worth more than the small amount you'll have to pay to obtain it.

From: STEVE Date: June 11, 2002 at 20:14
You R right Tim This CD Rocks,always sounds like a female singer to me.GET IT IF U CAN !!!!!

From: ROB GARCIA Date: January 18, 2003 at 17:38
apart from a couple of songs the rest is pretty average.

From: BRM Date: May 23, 2003 at 19:55
Agree with Rob some tracks are very good , but at least two are worth avoiding as the singer sonds like he can't sing on them. But, don't get me wrong it is a good cd. I mean I bought it!!!!! and I had a bargain it was only 2 sealed, 7.5/10

From: JCG Date: June 21, 2003 at 17:40
Only 1 good song:"Beyond time"(both versions),the rest is a shit.Lionessa sings like a crying child,hes very bad.

From: Rycheage Date: March 13, 2004 at 17:43
The multi-tracked vocal intro on 'Beyond Time' is great, and the song itself gets a pass mark, with some strong guitar lines. I do love the second track 'The Letter'. Glorious AOR, check out the nifty keyboard work, the percussive bass lines and stirring guitar solos. 'Eye To Eye' is another standout track, with regimented verses and a rich chorus. 'Now' has all the AOR cliches, but it sounds great to me.

From: Music Man Date: April 21, 2004 at 9:42
Some very catchy AOR tunes on this one. Worth the price of admission.

From: stef the french Date: July 20, 2004 at 17:37
GOT THIS CD SINCE A LONG TIME AND GO ON LISTENING TO IT WITH GREAT PLEASURE .KOREA PLAYS GREAT AOR MUSIC WITH A GLAM VOICE &AND SOMETIMES T.POLEY ISN'T FAR FROM THE SINGER G.LIONESSA ! A CD TO HAVE , NO DOUBT!!!

From: Dave Date: December 16, 2004 at 9:26
Yeah good album!Just over 70% is real good quality AOR with some catchy riffs. 'Beyond Time', 'stealin my heart' and 'lonely child' are great tracks. Must admit lionessa does sound rather feminine! some of it could be down to poor production though!?

From: z4roxx Date: January 12, 2005 at 0:06
"Now"what a marvellous gem!!I like this band very much....

From: Geoff Date: January 27, 2005 at 4:28
We have a few differences in opinion every now and then, which is good to see z4roxx. Unfortunately I find this to be a pretty damn weak album. Reminds me of another one I can't recall now, with a soft sounding production job and no real kick to it. The songs aren't all bad and there are a few pretty damn good ones - AH! It reminds me of Passion Risk! That's it. Not so much the songs, but both are decent CDs let down by a useless, punch-free production job. Good enough songs though.

From: z4roxx Date: January 27, 2005 at 13:44
Yes Geoff,from these guys I like some songs of this cd,"now"is lovely.Not fantastic or awesome but I like this band,I don't know why!!ahaha!!because they are not great or so much particular but...I like them.Geoff,that's the other band where singer seams a female!(as Ladies Room,remember?)

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 30, 2006 at 13:54
Good Melodic Rock album, un buen album no para tener un 9 para mi esta en un 7/10, claro hay temas buenos como Beyond Time y Feel This Way Rock Melodico de buen nivel otros temas no convencen como que le falta esa magia que te atrapa que caracteriza a otros grupos del mismo estilo que si lo tienen, bueno es mi opinion. Y me Olvide Gracias a los muchachos del Barcelona por pasar a la final la copa sera nuestra Larga vida a los Campeones!!!

From: Mustaine_TW Date: September 13, 2006 at 9:46
one of aor masterpieces...but so rare to find...

From: kipvanpearcy Date: September 7, 2007 at 13:04
Hmm... how to describe this with the right words? Oh yeah, it sucks hairy donkey balls. The singer sounds like a crying bitch, and he actually makes Mark Slaughter sound manly in comparison. The songs are boring and have no good moments, the production is average, and the singer is not in key very often. Avoid!

From: z4roxx Date: September 12, 2007 at 10:10
Yes,my previous old comments were a little much positive.This is decent but I am not agree with the last comment,it's not easy to find bands that divide critics...A good point for Korea ahaha!7/10 could be the rightest rate???

From: KurtmanJP Date: February 19, 2008 at 0:40
I think it sounds like a softer version of Stone Fury. The vocals certainly take time to warm up to. Not awful but not great either. I'd classify this as occasional guilty pleasure listening. And that's only a few songs (Beyond Time, Stealin My Heart, Feel This Way and Broken Bottles).

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 11, 2012 at 22:07
Vocally talking Gino Lionessa sounds a bit like Geddy Lee of Rush fame here and there and about the songs,for me they were decent ones,nothing else..."Beyond Time","Stealin' My Heart","Korea","Eye To Eye"(nice),"Now" & "Beyond Time"(this extended version is a winner!)are my faves...85/100

From: hair metal again Date: October 11, 2018 at 5:14
very good debut for KOREA back in 92 ,performing commercial hard rock music !i a gree that the production is weak but those guys sound so warm & real that really gets you !the vocals to me sound great and cant get the negativity!"stealin my heart" and "eye to eye" are the highlights
