This is a VERY impressive release for many reasons. First the superb musicianship throughout, second the guitar talents of Roland, and third virtually every song is first class. It is a vast improvement on 'The Four Seasons Of Life' which in itself was a good album, here the songs really are very strong and the decision by Roland to hand the microphone over to Mike Vescera was a masterstroke. The Yngwie influence is also much more in the background and this is somewhat of a nice surprise considering the band members. If Roland's next solo album is another jump in quality like this was over '4 Seasons' then it could possibly be one of the greatest albums ever, this album is close but not quite their yet. Its still an extremely worthy addition to your collections and worth the price of admission so to speak.
Mr. Grapow has written songs of pure excellence here. The Style is quite hard to describe, but it's somewhere in the vicinity of Yngwie Malmsteen, Helloween, Rainbow. To put it short: HEAVENLY MELODY, YET HEAVY AS HELL. Thank you Mr. Grapow. Thank you.
