|A phenomenal album! My number one AOR/hard rock album of 2000. Imagine a blend of Wetton-era Asia, Magnum, and Ten. An essential must-have!!

|Very impressive album... I find it amazing that these guys can only get a deal in Japan when fluff like Poison and Cinderella had deals with major labels... So obscure to me were Praying Mantis that I'd never even heard of them until 3 weeks ago, and now I have this entire album and 10 to 15 tracks from their other releases stuck inside my head... Great hooks, rousing choruses that leave imprints after a few listens... This album will likely knock one out of my Top Ten personal favorites...

|Muy buena su mezcla de AOR,Hard Melodico y NWOBHM,pero le pasa lo mismo que al anterior ,abusan en exceso del minutaje de los temas.

|Pretty much everything they've done has been very good, and this is no exception. Powerful songs(especially "Naked"). Its a shame that their albums are so hard to find in stores. They deserve a bigger following.

|Para mí es el mejor disco del año 2000 en cuanto aor se refiere. Una pasada de temas. Hacía tiempo que no disfrutaba tanto escuchando un disco de música. Por favor, que sigan así.

|The guys have recorded and album that stays true to their European melodic metal genre, but crosses into mainstream AOR enough to mellow the album to allow access to a style of melodic rock that is sometimes hard to get to know. For those that are curious and have seen many like releases come and go, don't let this one past you. For those that are already converted to the ways on the European's, this is one of the better releases.

|A mi no me ha gustado nada. Quitando la primera q es muy buena las demás me han parecido tatalmente vulgares. Uno de esos discos q escuchas y no sabes ni por q canción vas pq no hay nada reseñable en ellas.

|This band is going through singers like Black Sabbath. Too bad this singer was not on more of their albums. His voice fits in perfect with this sound. I agree about with Dan about what the sound is like on the album. The title track is great. 8/10

|For me, this was one of those CDs I listened to at first and thought to myself how good it was, chock full of melodic hard rock gems. The more I heard it the less fantastic it became though. Initially very good and I still like the CD quite a bit, but not the staying power I appreciate from a really good CD. Good stuff though.

|ok release by PRAYING MANTIS , but nowhere so good as stated above!of course there is a certain quality,nice musicianship but the songs cant get things to the next level!the important is that the band is faithful to its sound and the fans i guess are happy!not bad ,pick it up cheap!
