“Rating: KKKKK (5 out of 5) It's been a long time koming, but well worth the wait as former Q5 stalwarts Rick Pierce (lead guitar) and Jonathan Scott K (vokals) bounce back with a new sound and a new band --- Nightshade. If you like your ROKK hard, yetretaining a KOMMERCIAL edge, this is the band for you.I still find it baffling as to why Q5 never got the success they deserved. They were signed to Def Leppard manager Peter Mensch's Squawk/Polygram label, which makes it even more unbelievable,as I'm sure Mensch realized Q5's potential.But here we are with Nightshade's debut LP, and joining Rick and Jonathan are Anthony Magnelli on bass and Jeffrey McCormack on drums. In a word, this album is FLAWLESS, with not one dull kutt or FILLER track. From the opening powerkhords of "Surrender" you'll be hooked. Rick Pierce's guitar playing has kome on in leaps and bounds since his Q5 days, but back then he had to live in the shadow of Floyd Rose - yes, heof the GEETAR PIKK-UP system!”
“Even today, where there are tons of good bands, the songs of this album are an exception. Who is interested in this CD, it has been re-issued via Delinquent Records with a new cover and should be available at every good mail order. (Online June 20, 2004)”
