Existing comments about this CD

From: Sergio Date: October 13, 2004 at 14:55
Para mi, este es el mejor de los 4 que sacaron, mas consistente y pesado, con influencias de DOKKEN, BONFIRE, JADED HEART y un poquito de DEFF LEPPARD. Las mejores: 2, 3, 6 y 12. 9/10

From: M. Allen Date: October 13, 2004 at 20:31
Given how good this band's debut was, you didn't need a crystal ball to know their 2nd CD would impress too, delivering big guitars, giant hooks, powerful choruses, and some really huge backing vocals. It's easy to see why this band is a favorite of many melodic hard rock fans, myself included. If you're listening to these guys for the first time, be sure to have some tissues handy, because these guys are so good, you might very well have a melodic hard rock-styled sonic orgasm.

M. Allen Is so right. Mighty album this one. I really like every single album they have done....great hooks everywhere.

From: Geoff Date: March 8, 2005 at 6:30
LOL at M.Allen's very accurate comments. This will blow your mind. If you like Victory this is essential. In fact, if you like hard rock this is essential. More consistent than the awesome debut, this is just brilliant. 'Soul Mate' hits you with a 10 tonne chorus and meaty riffs, and that's what these guys are best at. 'Won't Bite' does bite and will chomp your head off if you're not careful, and that's how this album goes. 'Step By Step' and 'Stare at the sun' are highlights too, but it all is.

From: MadMax Date: February 9, 2012 at 15:54
Sounds like early Pink Cream 69, except that songwriting there is lightyears ahead, and also better singer in PC69. Sweeney is good though, just not nearly as good as Deris 50/100
