my comment on this cd is simple if this was there very first cd they would have never done so well. but knowing this was materal before babylon ad first cd I would say I would have waited along time to put this cd out as well

even though they are demos-i love the keys and the AOR vibe throughout these early killer cuts. Proves the A&R team at ARISTA was more into grooming these cats into a third rate stripped down clone of what was popular in 1989. Sure they had some good songs on they're debut, but if they would of reworked some of these and brought the keys into the forfront a bit-This band could of swallowed the earth! Worth buying for that fact alone!!

Wow, give this one the production job of either of their first 2 albums and this might be their best and most consistent effort. The songs are awesome. As noted above, it's a little more AOR/melodic rock than the band we all know and love, but it's great stuff. The sound isn't great, but most the songs are. Definately recommended for fans of the band... would love to hear this album with a more polished sound.

Excellent slice of Melodic Hard Rock!! Finally released on cd. This is right up there with Babylon's first two cd's. If it had the proper production this would be their best release. Great vocals and soaring guitars.The songs a very catchey with that area rock sound. My fave songs are I'm No Good For You, Tears, She Likes To Give It, Too Much Too young, Hear My Heartbeat and Bad Mistake. This is a great add to your collection. Rated 8.5/10.

I'm always up for some "new" Babylon AD material (as long as it's not that American Blitzkrieg kind of crap)so this disc of early demos was a nice treat. The hair may have been poofier and the sound not quite as "metallic" as the debut or NOTHING SACRED, but the songs here are pretty decent quality in and of themselves. Think early VH with a slight tinge of AOR. An unexpected surprise...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: January 15, 2007 at 15:31
Of course this is Very very very good!!! album, si demos que nunca debieron serlo y debio ser su primer album con un nivel y estilo que personalmente me gusta mas pero al ser eso demos el sonido todos sabemos como es a diferencia de un album bien trabajado y pulido, despues de eso este disco si eres un amante, adicto de los 80's o un guerrero inmortal como el que escribe entonces es imperdible.

This is awesome. Buy it!

Was a nice glimpse of what was to come i suppose,d*mn glad they went harder though.Cuz this band had way too many balls n' attitude to display musically to be lightweights.
