I got this one . Very very good european melodic hard rock .Band with no image , but full of melodies .

From: purrfect-kat Date: September 13, 2002 at 4:58
Some good tunes on this baby and if ya like catchy melodic tunes then You will be swept away with lil Heartbreaker.

From: Teo_3 Date: January 14, 2003 at 1:14
I' ve just seen their rare DVD. What a band, another one of these jewel that got lost in time with no recognition. Tracks like "Let's Go to the Party", "You Can't Stop the Fire", "Bad Boy", should be heard by a self respected hard rocker.

From: ROB GARCIA Date: January 24, 2003 at 15:18
excellent melodic hard rock that reminds me of bands like treat or dalton,simple song structures but very effective.very good songs with loads of hooks to chant along to.all 3 albums are highly recommended and worth your hard earned cash.

From: TIM Date: March 13, 2003 at 23:38
Felt like shit earlier, but put this on and a miraculous recovery took place. These guys kick ass! Highly, highly, recommended.

From: Scandinavia Date: June 28, 2003 at 17:01
Surprisingly good melodies on this one...Had the production been just a bit better this band could've competed with the big ones..."Runnin' out of Bad Times" is THE stand-out track. Haven't heard it for some time now but still got that melody line stuck in my head...Very positive song!

From: Keenan Date: November 11, 2003 at 15:33
Intro to "Running Out Of Bad Times" sounds like something off of "Scorpions" "Crazy World" great Melodic Music...shame of this music doesnt exist in CD stores

From: robert Date: December 23, 2003 at 20:02
No esta mal esta banda Suiza! buen disco del 89' 6 sobre 10!!

From: Dean Date: July 4, 2004 at 2:07
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzwhat? Sorry-these guys simply bored the hell out of me. Admittedly not a huge fan of AOR but this one came highly recommended yet i just could not get into this no matter how hard i tried. Some of the leads were pretty cool though but not nearly long enough to sustain my interest.

From: Geoff Date: August 30, 2004 at 0:25
This one blew me away. These guys possess some of the biggest choruses in melodic hard rock history. 'Running Out of Bad Times' is commercial hard rock bliss,'Alright (Whose Life Is It Anyway)' is an awesome melodic anthem, as is 'You Can't Stop the Fire', but it is 'Heartbreaker' which amazed me most. One of the best melodic hard rock songs I have ever heard in my life and worth the effort alone. The CD is a little patchy, but the gems are gems!

From: Kip Date: August 30, 2004 at 23:21
Once again, Geoff opens his mouth and my words come out. wow man. The only thing that grates on me about this CD is it doesn't quite rock hard enough at times and the singer's voice can be an acquired taste. 7.5/10

From: z4roxx Date: January 13, 2005 at 22:16
Hey Kip,Geoff has the right!!Maybe one of the greatest hard rock bands in the world!!I love all Transit tracks,marvellous songwriting around an incredible singer,and that's not my point of view but it's the evidence!probably at the first 2 releases I can give 25/10,the last one not at this level but fantastic anyway...

From: Erik Date: January 14, 2005 at 3:21
Great band and in my opinion highly underrated. The 2004 cd , cant come up with the name of that one right now, is maybe even their best release up to dat. Transit rocks !

From: z4roxx Date: January 14, 2005 at 19:05
Erik,hey hey hey???Transit reunion???When???What's your actual new name???please let me know(maybe they have a web site at this point)...thanks!Tears fallin'down with Transit!!!ahahaha!!!

From: Erik Date: January 15, 2005 at 3:54
Z4roxx. I was mistaken. It was a re-release (in 2003 )of their classic 89 album Dirty Pleasures. Sorry man. But hey maybe when they read all these great comments they will reunite

From: z4roxx Date: January 15, 2005 at 18:51
Erik,no problem man!!I hope Transit will return but...I hope not with a disc as Europe or other shit modern soundin'!!!ahahah!!Transit...only if I think to their music I have an heart attack!!!

From: Erik Date: January 16, 2005 at 9:03
Z4roxx i agree. Man the europe release was such a downer. Seems the nu-breed and "modern" sounding virus got hold of europe also. Or just maybe they cant write good tunes anymore. Having said that i will put Transit - Running out of bad times in my cd player to make me feel good again

From: Erik Date: January 20, 2005 at 5:42
Z4roxx do you know of a band called Tight Fit. I have te cd in front of me. Its really very very similar to Transit. I know you will love it also. Its a 96 release on Long Island records.

From: z4roxx Date: January 20, 2005 at 19:51
Yes Erik,I do have Tight Fit(re-heard recently),exist only for Long Island series I think.Very Good band but nothin'to compare with Transit,IMO(maybe some song,I remember cd contains many tracks).Tight Fit much more aor oriented for me,remind me to The Creek and Manito Park.But this the great magic of music,many bands sound different in our hears and minds!!ahahahaha!!!Sorry for my"poor"english,that's the really shame in this site,my english!!ahahahahahah!!!Regards....

From: z4roxx Date: January 20, 2005 at 19:58
Dear Erik,it's very very hard to find a comparison with this"martians"of melodick hard rock!!Every track blow me away,maybe I'd ready to throw myself to the window!!ahahah!!(fortunately I live on ground-level!ahahah!!).I prefer do not write any similar band for the moment,when I think IMO of a similar as these one,I'll leave asap a comment about this fact....Regards again!

From: z4roxx Date: January 20, 2005 at 20:30
Erik,in conclusion:maybe I can find a comparison for their last release with old Gotthard(but there's no paragon about music,Transit Godz and rule!!!).For the first 2 cd's I don t find any similar and I'll not try to find because these 2 works will must remain unique and asbolute,anyone will can find a comparison,maybe other bands will can rip these guys with no results!!W TRANSIT!!

From: Erik Date: January 21, 2005 at 4:46
You are right Z4roxx. The album from Tight Fit does contain lots of songs ( 13 or 14) and yeah some songs are similar to Transit. Strange tho that Tight Fit cant be found on this site. Maybe i will submit all info but i dont know how to upload the art work of the cd. Your english is ok enough but far more important you make good comparrisons to other bands. That helps ! thanks

From: z4roxx Date: January 21, 2005 at 19:27
Erik,thanks you're too kind.It's hard sometimes to find comparrisons expecially when we talk about Godz bands as Transit in this case.I can t scannerized the artwork of Tight Fit,sorry!(My scanner went to trash,all broken!ahahahaha!!).10 minutes ago I asked to put in the site Ez'Livin',they must be put on the site!(see Bonfire/point blank)

From: Geoff Date: January 23, 2005 at 6:39
Just to add to the above words, got to agree with z4roxx there on Tight Fit. I love the song 'Those were the days', but as z4roxx rightly points out, those guys are much more AOR than Transit. Only a few songs I like from Tight Fit, but countless I love by Transit. It does get very hard to compare a lot of bands... I heard a band that sounded a little like Transit the other day but forget who they were now...

From: z4roxx Date: January 23, 2005 at 19:32
Hey Geoff,thanks for support!Really appreciate by myself...Very very hard find a similar band,I'm thinkin',thinkin',thinkin'since many hours!ahahaha!!I asked also to my cousin to find a comparrison,when we'll find I'll let you know(but if it will be Transit will rule on first position forever)

From: headbanger4life Date: January 12, 2007 at 3:14
Wow, this is some F'N awesome melodic hard rock. Awesome hooks, huge gang back-up vocals. In my opinion the only flaw was that the production could have been better. Other than that, this is some wild party on the beach in the middle of summer music. I'm having a hard time trying to compare these guys. They sound a little like (early) Sargant Fury and even Gotthard. This is one that should be in everybodies collection.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 13, 2007 at 13:20
Great Melodic Hard Rock album, Gran trabajo mayormente compuesto por temas de Hard Melodico y algunos de Hard Rock todos van de un nivel bueno a Grandes y mayormente Grandes cortes 9.5/10, Disco negro con las inscripciones solo de la banda arriba y del album abajo letras rojas oscuras.

From: metalhead4life Date: June 24, 2008 at 11:57
A shame the singer isn't good IMO; I really can't get in to the vocals. A shame since there are some good melodic hard/glam rock songs on here with big gang vocals. 75/100 for the songs/music and 45/100 for the vocals; over all I rate it 60/100.

From: erik Date: August 2, 2008 at 9:46
an easy 92/100. Then again i love these guys. Heartcore being their prime moment for me. Should have been as great as Gotthard. Shit management did the opposite for them.

From: aormelodic80 Date: December 31, 2008 at 16:21
"You Can't Stop the Fire" my favorite Song..killer!!!

From: erik Date: April 24, 2009 at 9:34
Andrea / Rafophoenix: Newsflash: The former singer of Transit "Olli" Oliver Fehr is about to join , this summer, the band of former Transit guitat and keyboard player Fredy Koller. Good times might just return And oh yeah ffing brilliant cd ! Unmatched songwriting ( fantastic chorusses) and awesome voice. 99/100

From: heinz Date: December 8, 2009 at 11:37
