"even though i miss the warlock years, i am still in love with doro. nearly everything she puts out is great and this one is another good buy for any fan, or even someone who's never heard her beautiful voice."
A middling release that's for sure.

"Treading water in the mid 90's and fighting a rearguard action for some way of stopping her fanbase leaving her behind Doro tried to get a new fanbase. This is a pretty weak Doro album and the fact that it was also released as an electric mix version sort of tells you that this was an attempt by Doro to be 'industrial'. Not a great idea.
Anyway, it's not all bad. This album shows Doro firing away with some fairly sexual lyrics and that's something she'd not done before so there is some growth here. And helped by the production of Jack Ponti the guitars really do crunch, the music is kept simple and that actually creates a sense of space in the mix for Doros' distinctive voice to inhabit.
Alas for Doro fans the problem here is one of sparsity of decent tunes. The lead cut is well suited to it's pole position, overt sexuality and simplistic yet driving music hammering home the point. The title track placed at #4 is also very cool, another simple but effective tune and to the point lyrics. The drama here is that there are so few worthy tracks.
I've given this 3 stars due to the attempt to try new things, the nice production and the couple of barnstorming tracks."
