grandioso disco de mi 6 banda favorita de todos los tiempos.

this is one is a killer. "digital digtator", "vicious rumors" and "welcome to the ball" is the perfect (!) definition of the term POWER METAL in its original meaning. a classic, a masterpiece!

From: Jimmy D Date: May 8, 2005 at 12:25
This album is beyond awesome. Awesome guitars and even better singing. Carl Albert is quite possibly the best singer in heavy metal. To me, he sounds kind of like a combination of Ronnie James Dio and Eric Adams from Manowar.

The First 2 VR Records Are Exceptional.DD' Is An Incredible Album! A Re-Release Of This Great Recording Is Definitely In Order.************

Classic album of the band and by far probably the most sought one of them..."Digital Dictator","Minute To Kill","Worlds And Machines" & "Out Of The Shadows" are my faves...80/100

From: Metal T Date: November 6, 2013 at 2:24
For me its a toss up between Digital and WTTB as to their best probably give Digital the edge for nostalgic reasons and because it was the first one that i heard in late 80's.It also seems to be the prefered fave of the european metal crowd.'Lady Took A Chance' is my fave tune ever from these guys,Carl's stuff is a challenge to sing and that speaks to what an incredible talent the cat was *RIP

From: hair metal again Date: April 26, 2023 at 7:05
excellent release for VICIOUS RUMORS and a classic of the 80 s US power metal scene with exceptional guitar work and amazing vocals!"lady took a chance","minute to kill","digital dictator" and "towns of fire" are great songs indeed!love it
