2 stars I am probably making myself unpopular here with this review. But I think this album is a sick bag full of drivel.

Where do I start ? Well, after the underwhelming title track which is firmly in AOR land, the next treats is heavy rock which sounds like a discarded song from Deep Purple's House Of Blue Light album session (four years before that session took place) and a simple pop song. The latter one even a massive top ten hit.......... in Germany. Then we have a sixteen minutes long pomp prog song Judgement Day which goes some way to redeem the band for the rest of this album. But it is not good enough to make me forget songs like the huge hit, but still a horrors of horrors type song called This is My Love Song, the title track and the cringe worthy Deep Purple pastich Keep Me Away.

In short, I am not pleased.

Not at all.

But the Saga copy song Judgement Day saves this album from being a turkey. This album is a shameful commercial album. They succeeded in their attempts, I am afraid. Mainly because they copied the likes of Deep Purple, Bad Company, Saga and other bands I do not want to know. When it comes to originality, this album gets nill points.

2 stars
