"This is one excellent hard rock album. Norum is one hell of a guitar player who isn't afraid to let it rip. This disc features vocals by Kerry Keeling, heard on Schenker's recent live disc. He really makes the album shine and complements John's playing quite well. Although John handles the vocals on a few tracks (mediocre singing at best), overall the album smokes. Killer version of Humble Pie's "Strange Days" and interesting take on "Sunshine of Your Love". Don't forget to check out track # 6, "Whose Side Are You On?" - absolutely scorching guitar. My neighbors hate that song! Pick up this disc, especially if you play guitar!"
A cool guitarists potential fulfilled

"I admit I didn't think he had it in him. Norum pulls a complete surprise and comes up with this tasty slice of guitar fuelled hard rock.
Resurrection Time is one of the mans best tracks ever and Shimmer High is also great while being a little weird instrumentally. This has a little acoustic guitar, cover songs and quality originals. And it's a great album to have handy when you want to listen to something with feeling and not blistering metal.
It's also brilliant to play to a mixed crowd as it's nice enough to please the non-rock audience, no expletives etc, just some great rock 'n' roll from a man who wears his influences on his sleeve. And an interesting cover of Sunshine of Your Love too..."
Just one word Killer

"John Norum smokes.His guitar playing is nothing less then awesome. This is a must have for any metal guitar player.His ability to write, sing and play guitar is something that should not be overlooked. Check out his other releases, most notingly Worlds Away and Face The Truth .I really give him ten stars."
