“FRONTED BY THE UNIQUE TENOR VOICE OF LAURI HANNOLA (THIS GUY IS REVELATION) MELODIC MUSICAL APPROACH HAS AN INSTANT CHARM THAT APPEAL TO ANYONE WHO LOVES THE CLASSIC `80s SOUNDS. THERE`S ONLY 9 SONGS HERE, BUT ALL OF SUPREME QUALITY CRAFTED WITH ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND SUPER-POLISHED PRODUCTION. THE OVERALL STYLE IS PRETTY AMERICAN INFLUENCED MELODIC ROCK, BUT SKY OF FOREVER ADD A TOUCH OF THEIR SCANDINAVIAN ORIGINS TO THE MIX.” ~Leif Kristiansen (NORWAY)

“THE ADDITION OF THE POWERFUL TENOR VOCALS OF SKY OF FOREVER`S SONGWRITER AND GUIDING LIGHT LAURI HANNOLA ADDS A FURTHER DIMENSION, HIS PERFECT DICTION AT TIMES BRINGING TO MIND DREAM THEATER`S JAMES LABRIE.” ~Ant Heeks, Rocktopia (UNITED KINGDOM)

WILD HEART AND SUMMER RAIN ALONG WITH THE OPENER (CARRY ON) ARE PROBABLY MY FAVOURITES, BUT ALL THE TRACKS ON THE ALBUM ARE GREAT, SO PICKING A FAVOURITE ISN`T EASY.” ~Daniel Källmalm, Hallowed.se (SWEDEN)

“THE STRONG VOICE OF LAURI HAS A HUGE RESEMBLANCE TO SONATA ARCTICA`S TONY KAKKO.” ~Hardline Magazine (GERMANY)

“WHAT REALLY STRIKES ME IS THE VOICE OF HANNOLA, AGAIN AND AGAIN.” ~Hans K. White Room Reviews (NETHERLANDS)

ONE OF THESE DAYS COULD BE ANY BON JOVI TRACK. THE CHORUS IS JUST AMAZING. ONE OF THE BEST ON THE ALBUM.” ~Whizard, ViriAOR (SPAIN)

“THE SONGS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.” ~Spirit Of Metal (FRANCE)

“SONGS LIKE SUMMER RAIN IN BETWEEN SET YOU INTO THE MOOD OF A RAINY SUMMER DAY AND YOU CATCH ON TO THE REFRAIN IMMEDIATELY, A REALLY STRONG PIECE OF MUSIC.” ~Hardline Magazine (GERMANY)

“I ALSO WANT TO EMPHASIZE TASTY SOLOS OF RONI SEPPÄNEN, AND THAT REALLY BRINGS SOMETHING COOL TO THE SOUND OF SKY OF FOREVER.” ~Ola Gränshagen, Sweden Rock Magazine (SWEDEN)

“IF YOU LIKE STYLISH MELODIES, YOU BETTER LISTEN THIS ALBUM.” ~AORLAND (SPAIN)

“IN TOMORROW HANNOLA SHINES AGAIN WITH HIS FLAWLESS VOICE.” ~Hans K. White Room Reviews (NETHERLANDS)

“REMARKABLE.” ~Flight Of Icaros (GREECE)

“HANNOLA`S INTERPRETATION IS CRYSTAL CLEAR AND CAPTURING, SOLOS OF RONI SEPPÄNEN ARE LIKE STRAIGHT FROM THE HANDBOOK OF ADULT ROCK. THE DRUMMER PILVE IS HITTING THE DRUMS ASSERTIVELY WITH PRECISION OF A CLOCK.” ~Jaakko Silvast, Inferno (FINLAND)

VAGABOND IS ONE OF THE BEST BALLADS YOU WILL HEAR IN 2016. IT`S BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL.” ~Whizard, ViriAOR (SPAIN)

“SUPER POLISHED PRODUCTION WITH A FLAWLESS POP-ROCK SOUND THAT WOULD FIT ON ANY RADIO STATION, AND SOME GUEST GUITARS FROM WELL-KNOWN GUITARIST BRUCE KULICK MAKES CARRY ON  A POSSIBLE HIT SONG.” ~Daniel Källmalm, Hallowed.se (SWEDEN)

“NOT THE LONGEST ALBUM IN THE WORLD, BUT QUALITY WILL ALWAYS RULE OVER QUANTITY, AND THIS DELIVERS THAT ATTRIBUTE WITH SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT.” ~Ant Heeks, Rocktopia (UNITED KINGDOM)
