AllMusic Review by

This is the most overtly commercial of Virgin Steele's albums. It does have its moments: the anthemic '80s rocker "Love Is Pain," the tender ballad "Last Rose of Summer," and the highly libidinous, Zeppelin-esque "I Dress in Black." Some of the best pieces are the shorter keyboard instrumentals.
