"Christian Death are long gone (dead) but occasionally Valor publishes a record with this name, sure to earn money from fund fans. He spent 10 years of his career climing the world should end in the month of july 1999, as declared by Nostradamus, but to promote this mediocre record (and to earn other money) he seemed to have forgotten it, touring long after this date. Anyway the music is not so bad, at least not bad as Prophecies or the following Born Again (a disaster...). The beginning song has its maximum in the fourth part (The Lie Behind the Truth) , where a dark hard rock starts after a church choir, creating a fascinating effect. The following tracks are more or less good, but FANTASTIC is the idea of covering Sex Dwarf by The Soft Cell! Then the album knows a moment of tiredness untill it falls in the swamps of the traditional slow-gothic Die with you. A little awakening with the following She Never Woke Up, the commercial hit of the album. So, with his highs and lows (the final The 9 Is a 6, sung by Yaal, a bad imitation of I Hate You justifying the survivance of the world to Nostradamus prophecy...bleah!) that's quite a good album, of honest hard and half-industrial gothic rock, to have only if you do not exige novelties and artistic inventions..."

"[...]
Seriously, this is terrible stuff. Christian Death albums used to be works of art. This is hard rockin' crap extraordinaire, coupled with Valor's bad lyrics which are meant to be shocking, but which succeed only in revealing that Valor has bad taste (-- or to put it another way, he has no regard for good taste). Forget about art, go for the shock! Such is the way of Valor Kand in the new millineum."
