The song "Victory" is the same sensation as "ghost of winter" from Lillian Axe!!!

From: Axelinger Date: October 25, 2002 at 23:35
Only weak point is the title track, which sounds like something Bon Jovi would've done at their cheesiest. Welcome To My Hollywood and Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark are both outstanding tracks, while Ball Of Confusion and Victory are impressive in their own right. Barden's one studio kick at the can is well worth owning.

Decent melodic hard rock played by veterans of the NWOBHM scene. The only problem is that, this is decent, not much stands out, but nothing is too bad either. 5/10

From: Dave Date: July 19, 2004 at 7:19
Another band that had a big hype about them so i got this album.......verdict.........CRAP!!!!!!!! Is this their worst album???? Do they have any good ones???? Honestly!!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: July 19, 2004 at 13:49
This crap ? ! Dave, I do not agree ! This is a good act, with good records, no crappy ones !

From: Heavy.AOR Date: July 20, 2006 at 13:56
BRILLIANT 10/10.Best track here is a "Only the Children Cry" bombastic chorus.

From: z4roxx Date: March 25, 2007 at 13:59
This isnt'a cd of 10/10 and not a 5/10,just 8.5/10 is its righter rate IMO.Some song is an hit,some is decent,but totally this is another great Praying Mantis chapter.....

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 15, 2011 at 22:36
A fine AOR/Melodic Rock album!!!..a band that is usually known as a reference of the NWOBHM movement..."Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark","Bring On The Night","Welcome To My Hollywood"(nice song with a good chorus),"To The Power Of Ten"(rocking track with a good chorus) & "Victory"(best song in here!)...good band,good album,good songs...what else can you ask for???.94/100
