I have seen them live in Milano as supporter of Dave Lee Roth. They kicked ass!!!

From: Barthezz Date: November 7, 2001 at 13:12
This is an awesome debut-album. I would love to have seen these guys play live. They make the most beautiful ballads ever! On this album, my fave's are FEATHER IN THE WIND, HERO and SOMEWHERE.

From: Mike Date: March 25, 2002 at 13:26
My God! At last! I found this band. I saw them live on tv show in 1989 or 1990 with their Love Or Loneliness. The guitarist played while he was sitting on singer's shoulders. Cool

From: Funwolf Date: August 22, 2002 at 2:03
fantastic album!Also their second "escapade"!

From: nitrodoll Date: August 22, 2002 at 3:21
sing a long rock !!!!, their second release sounded far more mature and better thus... but you can't beat the enthusiasm that this dutch band had on their first effort that made em open for david lee roth around 1988. nice

From: West Of Sunset Date: March 2, 2003 at 6:26
This is one of the WORST CDS I,ve ever heard and Joss Mennen have one of these voices that I completly hate. When I bought the LP I got a double awful surprise: Robby didn´t played yet and the album was a SHIT!!!!!.Their second effort was a very good and strong effort.I cannot understand the wide difference from one CD to other.2/10 being generous, I cannot give more for this piece of shit. For

From: cruise Date: September 15, 2003 at 8:20
A decent album that sounds like a band in their infancy. Not particularly outstanding pop metal that needed some better songs and a better production. O.K. 6/10

Heads up for all Zinatra/Mennen fans! Both Zinatra releases are scheduled to be re-released in March 2004 as a box-set with lots of added extras alongside a brand new disc from Mennen!

From: ROB GARCIA Date: February 3, 2004 at 11:16
this is one of the prime examples in european aor;songs full of hooks and catchy choruses+good hard rocking guitars is what you get here.both albums are absolute musts if youre into bands like treat;da vinci;dalton....etc.if you enjoy the zinatra albums then go and check out robbie valentine's releases as they sound very similar to this but imho they are much better!!.one definetely worth looking for.

From: pablo Date: April 1, 2004 at 13:07
Muy buen debut de la banda melódica holandesa con muchas influencias escandinavas,colosales canciones y muy buen sonido

From: glamster Date: May 23, 2004 at 6:38
Great record! Now reissued by Snakebite Records, a division of Rock Inc. Entertainment, with the second album The Great Escape! For info, send an e-mail to or visit the site

me gustaria saber que hacen hoy

From: Geoff Date: August 16, 2004 at 2:24
I hate to say it, but I actually thought this album was a burning pile of sh*t and has no real worth at all as a musical offering. Decent hard rock at best I'd dare to label it, but nothing more... IMO.

From: DR DOM Date: October 8, 2004 at 19:47
Any band that calls them self ZINATRA and steals the legendary Frank SInatra's name by replacing the "S" with a "Z" is a sorry band.

From: MelodicMan Date: October 9, 2004 at 16:29
Thx DR DOM for your great explanation about their name. I'm sure you're the first one to notice that...

From: MelodicMan Date: October 9, 2004 at 16:44
... and I believe you never gave H"e"lloween a chance, right?

From: Sergio Date: October 9, 2004 at 18:52
MELODICMAN, oi, sou argentino e moro em São Paulo. Por favor, gostaria saber endereços ou nomes de lojas aonde comprar CD de AOR/HARD. Eu já conheço o Carlos Chiaroni da ANIMAL RECORDS, você conhece alguma outra ?. Tchau, Tchau e boa sorte com a Venezuela ( aunque eu acho não vão precisar ).

From: MelodicMan Date: October 10, 2004 at 14:16
Grande Sérgio, o Carlão é realmente a melhor fonte de cds de AOR/Hard que eu conheço, porém há outras lojas legais na galeria, principalmente a Hellion e a Frontline. Entretanto esses cds estão muito caros, então, pra te ser honesto, eu estou baixando tudo pelo SoulSeek e WinMX, principalmente porque as coisas aparecem por lá antes mesmo de serem lançadas (já tenho o James Christian novo, por exemplo). Se vc não faz questão de ter os originais, tente por lá.

From: MelodicMan Date: October 10, 2004 at 14:18
E se for teu interesse, deixa o teu e-mail q eu te escrevo pra gente poder trocar algumas coisas. Eu não deixo o meu porque às vezes eu escrevo umas merdas por aqui, e se a galera sacar q é meu e-mail, vão ficar me enxendo a conta com bobagens...

From: Sergio Date: October 10, 2004 at 20:58
Oi MELODICMAN, obrigado por ter contestado. Meu e-mail é TETOBENITEZ@AOL.COM

From: Augusto Date: November 23, 2004 at 12:09
Para mi gusto, una de las mejores bandas de AOR, aparte de tener hermnosos temas, son originales para ejecutarlos, no son "comunes", estan tocados de otra forma y escapan a lo de siempre, sinceramente , unos musicos de la puta madre, una pena que no esten mas. Todos sus temas son perfectos, desde donde lo analices, una joyita. PD: a no perderse Peppermania, un pequeño homenje a los que originaron todo esto, sin ellos, nada de esto existiria:THE BEATLES, impecalbe interpretacion, perfecto 09/10

From: ArnoldLancelot Date: March 12, 2005 at 0:24
They're often compare with dalton, treat and da vinci... Shurely they have a sound alike and I recomend then for everyone who wants to expand the scandi-aor side of a collection, but my dear fellows Treat stands up WAY miles away from them, for one thing: Class. Altough both re-issues are worth the money; for a good mastering, packing, and of course bonus tracks!

From: *-*zappa*-* Date: April 11, 2005 at 17:30
oi pessoal, do brasil e portugal grande disco de aor, mesmo eu saquei o meu no soulseek tchau people

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: May 4, 2006 at 16:55
Gran trabajo muy buen albun me gustan los temas sencillo pero inpactante, nose que podria decirles pero mas me gusta su segunda obra maestra es en realidad superior a la primera no es por darle puntos bajo a este albun todos son buenos pero hay que ser sinceros a este albun le falta un poco mas de potencia mas fuerza me gusta en si ZINATRA infaltable en tu coleccion ..SAludos a mi hermano manolo que me ah pasado este gran albun de Zinatra un abrazo

From: shoemaker Date: September 8, 2007 at 12:29
Pooooor, weak, bad stuff!

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: September 29, 2007 at 13:53
Aunque en mi opinión su siguiente disco es claramente superior, aqui nos encontramos con las directrices básicas del sonido de ZINATRA: Energía, potencia, melodía y cierto acercamiento al hard... de hecho, el sonido de ZINATRA es de corte escandinavo. Aqui están mas cercanos al Hard que al AOR, por lo cual, en mi opinión, los temas no son tan depurados, sino mas bien, se busca mas un estilo desenfrenado, sin embargo destaco temas como "Peppermania", "Heat Of The Moment" y "Looking For Love"

From: shark attack Date: September 30, 2007 at 5:53
Keyboard dominated aor with some nice ballads with those big hook laden choruses you can`t help but sing along with. Contains a couple of clunkers which are too pop orientated for my tastes and the guitars could and should have been pushed further forward to give it some balls but overall a pleasant if slightly bland release. 60/100

From: KurtmanJP Date: October 12, 2008 at 22:47
"Name Of the Game" is pure killer AOR rocker, by far my favorite song on this album. "Feather In the Wind" is a stunning ballad, way better than the other bland ballad "Somewhere". "Looking For Love" and "Love Or Loneliness" are also great but this album also has a couple fillers like "Rock And Roll Hangover". I still think tracks 5 and 10 are as good as any standout track on "The Great Escape". Best described as a mix of Van Halen and Cheap Trick to AOR newbies who only listen to top 10 stuff.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 28, 2011 at 21:17
Decent debut effort not as consistent as their following up "The Great Escape" but still delivers good songs such as "Lookin' For Love"(far their best song ever),"Hard To Explain","Somewhere"(nice ballad)& "Heat Of The Moment"...the re-edition of this album brings 7 bonus tracks being "Gone With The Wind"(a good rocky song),"Gone With The Wind"(live version) & "Moving On Sound" the best ones...93/100

From: AORSoundtracks Date: August 11, 2012 at 21:25
"Moving On Sound" is a killer bonus track. Pure 80s AOR !!!
