These were all the new/old reviews I could find. As far as the Kiske solo albums are concerned there were not too many reviews and I guess that everyone knows why.

Good luck AngelCryGr and Nightangel in selecting and adding all these reviews :D :thumbup:

17 Reviews for Kiske - Kiske (2006):

...

As you can imagine this is the most hated Kiske album and it shows on most of the review scores


Well my humble opinion is that this album had poor and bad promotion. The most sites have done reviews for "metal" music albums and this album has nothing to do with the metal music.

It's an honest soft rock album and has so many good songs (Fed by Stones, Kings Fall, The King of it all, Hearts are free, Painted). In fact I hear this album often when I don't want to hear distorted guitars and fast-songs.

Thanks for your great work. We will see the reviews and add them :)
There are too many reviews that were missed... Internet sites with music reviews are growing menacingly :angryhead: :fighting: :D

I agree, Frontiers should not have send promo copies of the Kiske album to metal websites. I also agree about the good songs, but I never liked Hearts Are Free (too pop) I would replace it with Sing My Song. Kiske was a very different but interesting solo album.

There are some old review links (on the Reviews page) that don't work anymore (reviews moved to the archive).

Here are some I could find that need to be replaced:

PV - Place Vendome:
http://www.melodicrock.com/archive/reviews/placevendome.p3 (9.5/10)

Kiske - Kiske:
http://www.melodicrock.com/archive/reviews/michaelkiske-kiske.p3 (6.3/10)

RR - New Era:
http://www.melodicrock.com/archive/reviews/reviews.html (9.1/10)

PV - Streets Of Fire:

http://archive-gr.com/page/2530392/2013-08-01/http://rockpages.gr/detailspage.aspx?id=2042&type=2&lang=EN

http://archive-gr.com/page/2530392/2013-08-01/http://rockpages.gr/detailspage.aspx?id=4456&type=2&lang=EN

I noticed that we don't have any reviews for Aina, which is a project were Kiske sings on 4 songs. I also found a few more Avantasia reviews. All the following reviews are strictly in English.
