"When this CD first arrived, my initial reaction was "oh no what's happened to Jeff Scott Soto". There was a new singer by the name of Johnny Gioeli peering at me from the inlay. I started to listen to the album and was hit by this guy's voice. Similar to Mr. Soto's, it was incredible, the best I've heard for a long time. This has to be Axel Rudi Pell's finest album to date, his guitar playing is magnificent, the best yet. The songs are incredibly well constructed with six of the ten tracks lasting over six minutes. The highlight of the album has to be the track "The Gates Of The Seven Seals" which is similar in style to "Black Moon Pyramid", "The Land Of The Giants" and "Casbah" from previous albums. Perhaps the most interesting track is the 9:36 long "Ashes From The Oath" which begins almost as a ballad and slowly builds in speed and complexity, showing Axel's guitar and song writing prowess to the full.If you like Axel's previous albums this is a must have CD, if you have never bought one of his, you could ask for no better introduction.Highly recommended."

"This album is simply superb.I do not understand why are this group are not more wideley reknown.The guitar playing of axel is simply silky smooth and fast without sounding like thrash like so many other lesser bands and the voice of Johnny gioeli must be the finest and most powerful of any rock band today.I have played this album to my friends who were all knockout by it so it looks like a few more orders could be on the way.Keep up the good work Axel."

"Featuring Johnny Gioeli on vocals,Pell's 1998 effort is a stunner-he is a guitar virtuoso,very original in style and also very articulate and inspired as a songwriter.Highlights are:'Carousel','Paying the Price',the title track,and,in fact,every song on this superb album.Top marks to Gioeli for his excellent vocal performance.If you liked Hardline,you won't be disappointed here."
