Well...on Strike X they have a song called Down To Atlanta AND right after that a ballad called Southern Winds. Sheesh! I think its kind of cute that these guys fancy themselves southern rockers a'la Baton Rouge or Southgang but its kinda silly at this point. They are from GERMANY! But...maybe they spend a lot of time down south, I don't know.

The cd is very average. About three 'good' songs. Nothing exceptional and a lot of by the numbers tracks. I agree, they need some songwriters. Bob Halligan, Kelly Keeling, Jack Ponti and Desmond Child need to lend these guys a hand. The lyrics are just awful too at some points.

I also think that Bonfire are trying to sneak some Christian rock in there as well...please...read the lyrics to Strike Back, Under Blue Skies. It sounds like Stryper. I think Claus found Jesus or something.

Anyway, nothing like Fireworks.

I DO like the song Damn You though. Could be a Ponti track.
