From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars After their commercial breakthrough, Agents of Fortune, BÖC decide to stick with the same formula, leaning away from their heavy metal roots and towards pop. The results are, I suppose, predictable. What we have here is Agents of Fortune part 2, with few significant differences from its predecessor. Once again we have a major radio hit, the (admittedly fantastic) album opener Godzilla. But after that, the album just falls apart. The Golden Age of Leather? Searchin' For Celine? R U Ready 2 Rock? All forgettable nonsense. I Love The Night is rather a nice little tale of morbidity, and Fireworks is kinda cool, but I find it taxing to listen to the whole album at a stretch. Only recommended if you liked Agents of Fortune a lot.
