I like this combination of hard rock riffs and keyboards very much. Ok, their voices are sometimes too high but it is really not that bad, I think. At least it is better than all the vocoders and all the autotune stuff of today.
"Rock The Night" and "Ninja" are very enjoyable. Of course, the eponym track also rocks since more than 30 years. Cheesy at times, but satisfying overall.
However, as a remaster, only 3 live tracks coming from the same songs of "The Final Countdown" leaves me rather disappointed. Instead of this, some bonus tracks could have been welcoming without any problem. Otherwise, the sound quality is correct.
