9. The Same Thrill

“The Same Thrill” is a party song, loud and blazing, though with slightly repitious lyrics. a fast paced song, Sounds kinda rushed though”

8. As Soon as the Good Times Roll

“As Soon As The Good Times Roll” is a little quieter, but just like everything else on this album, it rocks nicely.  Starts off softly saying that you shouldnt let the bad times ruin your life, then the pretty catchy chorus comes in but my favorite is the bridge very melodic.”

7. I’m Leaving You

“Kinda a mixture of a mid tempo rocker/ballad which works really well. Which reminds you of earlier songs like “No One Like You” or “Can’t Live Without You”, quite good.”

6. Crossfire

“A nice slow burning song with Matthias and his laser shooting guitar. Their best effort to date even better than Blackout, which I never thought could happen.”

5. Bad Boys Running Wild

“This first track is in your face from the start. I love how klaus sings the first verse, but instead of the chorus you get a pause, then the guitar riffs start again with no voice. I love it. The chorus itself is great as well. the bass is also excellent in this song. One of the best ive heard from them.”

1. Still Loving You

“Last but certainly not least, of one of greatest love ballads ever written. It starts off slow and sort of hypnotic , but picks up intensity every verse until the end when he just lets his emotions go when he sings “STILL LOVING YOUUUUUUUUUUUU I NEED YOUR LOVE STILL LOVING YOUUUUUUUUUU.” brings chills up my spine. This is a must have cd.”
