Cover albums are always a matter of taste. Either you like it or not. If the main theme are the 80es, it gets even more difficult. A lot of songs have already been covered, and the question "Do I really need the 10th version of ´Rebel Yell´?" pops up.

More interesting is it when you take a look behind the scenes of this band: with Marco Hietala (Nightwish, Tarot), Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), J.P. Läppäluoto (Charon) and J Ahola (Teräsbetoni) the best singers of the Finnish metal scene have gathered here. If you like them, you can't do anything wrong, and except for the more bombastic musical arrangements, the songs would easily fit on a CD of their main bands. Not very original but well done. The voices and also the beautiful version of the Dire Straits- classic "Brothers in Arms" keep this CD above average.
