Some familiar faces here - playing an eighties mainstream brand of rock. Not particularly inventive or innovative, but no worse than their peers of that same era. It's good in many places, don't get me wrong, but hearing this again after 15 years or so, didn't bring back any nostalgia pangs I'm afraid. Despite that however, the lineup is pretty special and they sure look the part. It features the shortlived Black Sabbath singer Dave Donato, one time Kiss axeman Mark St John, and future Silent Rage drummer Brian James Fox.

The Songs
Only a couple of songs do it for me on this platter. The excellent 'Live To Rock' is the example which should have been set for the entire album. 'White Hot Desire' is good too, sounding like a cross between Ozz and King Kobra. Overall though, the music is not gonna move mountains for me. Perhaps Donato's shrill vocals and the selection of 'standard fare' eighties metal on offer here - puts me off.

In Summary
Gotta say, the production overall is godawful! Sounds like it was recorded in an echo chamber! Interestingly, the album has seen a re-issue in 1999 on the EMC Records label. One additional track has been included, and that is a Michael Wagener remix of 'Rock Warriors' (the production on this one is far superior to anything else on the album). Funnily enough, it was put at the beginning of the album. The original put at the end. Why is that I wonder?

i saw on an Eddie Trunk YouTube video how Paul and Gene didn't think much of Mark. So Mark played on one album, played at just one or two gigs, and was given the boot. Well why did they sign him up in the first place? Now that Mark has passed on, he can't even defend himself.. Jeez..
