This recording will rock you and make you FEEL. Steve is all over the place with sounds and lyrics that take you places in our minds eye. The vocals are more than just handled by the new guy. Brian's voice lends itself to these songs with a certain ease that make him fit in like he's right at home with Lillian Axe. So give this new recording a spin and enjoy the Ride.

After a 25 year career and numerous albums in which I love dearly, this album is like no other. Steve Blaze and company have made a masterpiece and this is a great day for rock music. Everyone should pick this album up and give the boys of New Orleans, LA some love and let's help them get the respect that they have deserved for years. Every song flows from one to the next. Beautiful song writing, great vocals in the new guy in which I hope stays, powerful bass melodies and drums are full and intense. What else can I say? It is a must-buy and a great rock album....

I've never been so proud to be a Lillian Axe fan. As a fan since 1989, I can say that this is musically, lyrically and sonically their most impressive album to date. The songs are huge, majestic, soaring and powerful. New vocalist Brian Jones is absolutely perfect for this incredibly underrated band on his debut Lillian Axe album. His vocals are expressive and majestic and add to the power of the mighty Axe. The guitars sound huge, with monster-sized riffs all over the album. Steve's solos are beautifully melodic and incredibly expressive.

"Babylon" starts with a big, fast riff and the song doesn't lose your attention for a second. I don't think the band has ever sounded as powerful and tight as they do now. And fellow fans of Steve Blaze's fretboard prowess will not be disappointed to say the least.

Just as I thought "Babylon" couldn't be equaled, "Death Comes Tomorrow" begins and it builds to one of the most powerful choruses I've heard.

"Gather Up the Snow" enters with thick, massive guitar riffs. After just the first 3 songs, I felt like I might need a neckbrace the next day. There is just so much energy on this album and it transfers right to the listener.

But the album's just begun. Masters of intertwining light with dark, just as you think you're safe during the peaceful and beautiful acoustic intro to "The Great Divide", you're suddenly hit with the thunder of the entire band starting another grand, powerful and majestic song. A favorite so far would be impossible to pick.

"Take the Bullet", a song for the armed forces, is yet another fine moment and has been remixed by Sylvia Massey and has a harder-hitting snare than the pre-album single release.

I really can't understand anybody who has been a fan of this band does not like this CD. SOLID from start to finish. Hopefully this new singer will stick and not get sucked into the revolving band member door. What an incredible voice...this guy fits the band and the music perfectly. I love it when one of the old 80's/90's bands from the past nails it -- not a whole lot of bands do but this disc hits the mark dead center. Only problem is I ordered 4 other CDs from various bands from the past and they aren't getting a fair shake yet....I end up popping this one well before getting thru the others. Catchy, crunchy tunes....excellent. You won't be disappointed.

Lillian Axe have finally, mostly tossed out their "modern" style sound and went back to the almost "classic" sounding Lillian Axe on this release. All songs were top not, the opener Babylon was really good! That reminded me of stuff from Love & War album.....great album, Haven't really heard the others, but from clips I wasn't too impressed...but its safe to say, BUY THIS ONE!!!!

i've weathered a lot of storms as a Lilian Axe fan. Singers come, singers go ... as do drummers, bassists, etc. This incarnation of Lillian has been together for 11 years, and their ability to gel and morph into one tight, flawless musical entity never ceases to amaze me.

This album introduces Brian Jones as the new vocalist, and i have to say after some trepidation, i have welcomed him into the family with open arms. This album hearkens back to the days of Psychoschizophrenia ... my favorite album up to this point. Now, i must say, i think this very well may take it's coveted place atop my list of most loved Lillian Axe albums. Every song delivers a punch to the psyche ... and that is Blaze's trademark. Music that makes you feel, makes you wonder ... makes you acknowledge that music washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Steve Blaze is an amazing person, which shines through in his interaction with the fans, in his songwriting and his live performances. i've had the honor of meeting him several times, and he is always warm and welcoming ... as is everyone in the band. Sam, Eric, Ken and Brian are all grounded and approachable ... and they never turn their back on a fan who wants to tell them how much this band means to them.

Lillian has gotten me through some dark times, and she's also ridden with me atop the good times. She's a faithful gal who continues to grow musically and spiritually. I cannot say enough good things about this band. She's matured and moved into new creative directions, never abandoning Blaze's central themes of life, death, hope and acknowledgment of a higher power.

It's been an honor to ride this long with a band i truly respect.
