this is for Whitesnake ( later Whitesnake ) fans. Hard Rock with hints of Heavy Metal. its ok if you like this style. If you think youŽll hear " Power Metal" on this CD you better not buy this one.

'Love is pain' is a sensational melodic hard rock track. I actually think these guys belong on my preferred site, 'Heavy Harmonies' but oh well, found them here. As I said, that song is worth the disc alone, and 'Never believed in goodbye' and 'Cry forever' are also wonderful ballads. The rest is cool, if not unspectacular hard rock. Good solid disc.

excellent release once again for VIRGIN STEELE choosing an even more hard rock path (like most of the bands at the time)but always keeping their trademark De Feis piano lines & lyrics!the sound,the musicianship and the songwriting is really great and all the songs are remarkable!at stuff from a great act at least till that time
