This is a good album, but not as good as the s/t.

I wish some record label would re release this cd.The first one is brilliant and I would like to get my paws on this one.

A lower rating and less comments than the debut? I am offended! 'Hot Nights in Africa' is an original, melodic hard rock gem, 'Heaven' is a mid-tempo gem and a simply brilliant track, 'Deadline' is KILLER melodic hard rock, 'All Your Love' is melodic bliss and my favourite - just listen to those verses! But overall, this is an A+ classy melodic hard rock album, much better than the debut, IMO. Much better hooks and choruses. Very highly recommended!

From: ashen_light Date: December 31, 2004 at 8:56
Amazing!!! More guitar oriented with more distinct/sharp sound in comparison to the debut. A very consistant album with 12 great songs worth listening. 9.5

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 7, 2005 at 23:49
Great Melodic Hard album, que bueno ser el primer hispano en comentar este gran album jeje, si te gusto el primero este lo hara igual, ahhh que gusto da escuchar grandes albums como este, cortes como Deadline y All Your Love(2 de mis favoritas), Miles Away, Heaven, Hot Nights in Africa(muy origianl como dice Geoff), Judy y por supuesto mi favorita You Are an Angel(la Joya del album IMO) catapultan este disco, otro disco que no puede faltar en tu coleccion.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 7, 2005 at 23:55
Para Augusto, tu amas Zinatra y este sin duda te encantara al igual que el primero de ellos 2 discos altamente recomendados.

From: johnk5150 Date: November 8, 2005 at 11:54
'Watch Me' is possibly the worst song lyrically ever put to tape. The rest is pretty damn catchy.

From: lalorock Date: November 25, 2006 at 16:53
Excelente discazo,mientras más lo escuches más te gusta, este tío hace un hard rock con toques aor, ese temazo Hot nights in Africa grandioso y que tales coros,Miles away gran comienzo lleno de fuerza, Heaven excelente balada,pero la que se lleva las palmas es All your love baladasa lleno de feeling,Deadline hard rock del mejor, You are an angel otro grandioso tema,buenos solos de guitarra y melodías en cantidad, Roko , excelente banda 9/10.

From: True Believer Date: November 4, 2009 at 11:46
I think this CD is better and more interesting than their debut. Overall sound is more sharp here. "Open Invitation" is full of fantastic riffs and memorable solos. There are some pretty ballads, too. "Hot Nights In Africa" and "Deadline" contain killer riffs, "All Your Love" and "You Are An Angel" are great examples of catchy AOR. 9/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 26, 2011 at 22:07
Shamely this one is less consistent than their debut one but still pleasant ..."Miles Away" is a good opener,"Deadline" is an AOrish track,"Is It Love" a nice semi acoustic shot,"Judy" ,"Wine Or Water" ,"All Your Love" the best song, real AOR feel,"You Are An Angel" is another real AOR feel track & the nice closing ballad "Leave Me Alone"(Roko Kohlmeyer usually ends its creations with a ballad ) puts a smile of kinda satisfaction in your face...87/100

From: hair metal again Date: July 28, 2016 at 12:39
excellent release for ROKO with a fine commercial hard rock sound which is a mix of JADED HEART with HOTWIRE!all the songs are remarkable and the whole result is much better than you expect!"take my body"."wine or water " and "deadline" are sensational songs and overall a great hard rock release from the German scene
