"ASIDE FROM THE ALBUM "TRIUMPH AND AGONY" BY WARLOCK, I ONLY LIKED A FEW OTHER SONGS HERE AND THERE SHE DID SOLO OR WITH WARLOCK, HOWEVER, THIS ALBUM IS GREAT FROM START TO FINISH! SONGS LIKE "SAVE MY SOUL", "HARD TIMES", "MISSION OF MERCY", "WORLD GONE WILD" AND THE BALLADS "BEYOND THE TREES" AND "RIVER OF TEARS" ILLUSTRATE HER TALENT, UNIQUE VOCAL STYLE AND SONGWRITING AT THEIR STRONGEST. JON DEVIN ALSO ADDS SOME VERY NICE GUITAR WORK THROUGHOUT! IF SHE HAD CONTINUED TO PUT OUT STUFF AS SOLID AS WHAT IS ON THIS ALBUM, I WOULD'VE BEEN A BIG FAN. :("
Doro continues where Warlock leaves off
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Doro's solo debut (which would have actually been under Warlock but for legal entanglements) continues in the solid tradition of Warlock. Tommy Henriksen is the only remaining band member left over from Triumph And Agony, but John Devin and Bobby Rondinelli fill in quite nicely. A must for Warlock/Doro fans!"
A diamond by any other name.....

"It took a team of lawyers to strip Doro Pesch of the legal right to use the name Warlock, so she reminded us of who Warlock REALLY was - DORO!! The name has changed, but the monster remains the same! Doro Pesch proved to the world that she is one of the greatest rock vocalists of all time on this album, the BEST of her career! Once you get past her better-than-the-original cover of Procol Harum's "Whiter Shade of Pale", strap yourself in & turn the volume UP!! Every song rocks, even the ballads ("River of Tears" is the best of her career!), & by the time it's over you'll be ready for another, so get "Fight" or "Love Me in Black" too! Or, get the DVD of Doro & Warlock live from their 1985 tour. (She was maybe 20 at that time, & even the sub-standard audio can't hide the strength of her awesome voice!) This is ONE OF THE TEN BEST METAL ALBUMS OF ALL TIME, & certainly one of the best 100 rock albums ever! If you like Heart, Vixen or Joan Jett you'll LOVE Doro!!"

"This album contains an awesome cover version of Whiter Shade of Pale. Under The Gun is my favorite Doro tune period. Definitely one of the best Doro albums."
