Way better than the first two albums. ‘Taxman’ is a foot stomping boogie classic.

Rudy was co-written by Fergie Fredriksen, Howie Epstein (later bassist with Tom Petty) and Village People's producers/managers who also guided the David London phase of his career. Possibly a David London cast-off.

No, I'm changing my mind here. It's getting better as I'm listening to it. I'm hearing all sorts of comparisons, including some of the guitar work a la Rob Marcello (Danger Danger, Marcello Vestry). I haven't given it a rating yet, maybe toward the end of the week. Good read Jeff, thanks, and don't worry about others opinions, you're safe here, and you back your article with good justification. Now it's a race to see who writes up Kivel Records new signing Romeo Riot! Thumbs Up

I look to the sky
with a tear in my eye
and I ask god why,
why so many people
have to die
for a war
that's just another lie.
And I wave goodbye
to the fallen souls
floating up on high...
Fuk,
my name is Steve
and these lyrics suck,
but I've got nothing more
up my sleeve
so I think I'm gonna write a song
based on the film
The Bridge Of The River Kwai
(at least it won't take very long
and maybe I'll rope in Janick,
knock out a quick epic
about old King Kong).

Another fine example of a very promising & talented band that cranked out just one under-the-radar album. Teresa’s mighty vocals are powerful with a raspy slant that adds character. The musicianship is spot on tight. An impressive set!

A good album this and one which I kept in the collection, rather than culling it for Ebay. If I'm not mistaken 'I'll come alive tonight' resurfaced on Head East's 'Choice of weapons' LP as 'Come alive' many years later...

Ok, the bootleg vinyl, has two versions of Shoot u full of love, back on the streets and baby o, also track called steal away, haven’t played it for a while so may refer to something else. So 10 tracks referred to as warrior and invasion demos, three tracks from kiss live Nevada 1984, five tracks from live Indiana 1986 these all being invasion songs, three more demo outtakes of boys gonna, shoot u full and baby o, finally a live version of firehouse, kiss 1984....double vinyl, cost me abit, record fair in Bedford, say 25 years ago...

So what exactly is Vinnie doing these days? We forget his time with the 70's band Treasure, and also the VV Invasion. Both were fairly good in their own kind of way.
#51 | jeffrey343 |  ? 
at October 31 2017 15:02:16
Can't believe I never commented on this back in the day, as I really liked it then. And I still enjoy it, although I haven't played it as much as I should. Now that album 5 has just come out, it's interesting to revisit where they started. Their sound has definitely evolved over the past nine years, and Erik Gronwall brings a different vocal style. This is definitely a more straight-ahead affair than their most recent two albums, and it has more of a "live in the studio" sound (especially the drums). Glad to see that this was the start of what has become a really nice run for these guys.
#52 | Explorer |  ? 
at October 31 2017 08:56:29
The term `cobbled together` comes to mind with this release, just waiting for Vinnie to serve everyone concerned with a law suit....LOL,which is why Hirsh has given it a wide berth.

I agree with the cassette tape from the 80's having better quality. Mine does too. Overall, from the sound to the entire presentation it's reall disappointing. Not worth the money.

The cassette I have from all those years back I reckon sounds better than this. The tracks on show were taken from Gary Shea's own collection. The masters disappeared long ago, probably with Vinnie now, who was good with making off with master tapes...just ask Hirsh Gardner, but that's another story!

I've been listening to 'Eclipse' and it deserves a review. It's as good as 'Odyssey' and maybe Goran Edman's best work. Listen to 'Faultline'. Malmsteen most complex song ever, almost progressive. He still was a master in 1990.

A sophisticated Female Westcoast AOR set for sure. 'Imagination' is a slick cool slice of sultry new wave synth – like it a lot. Sounds like it could have been on an early 80's Blondie album, especially with the added island sounds. The expressive 'Guess You Had To Be There' and drama fueled closer 'Heartbeat' are standouts.
#78 | reyno-roxx |  ? 
at October 22 2017 18:44:09
The band's first two albums have their moments, but 'Breaker' blew them both out of the water. Saw them live at Hammersmith Odeon (billed outside as Attack) with Udi and his glittery spandex. Next saw them headlining the same venue touring on this album. Some very, very good songs on the thing.
#79 | dtabachn |  ? 
at October 22 2017 18:25:35
In my mind, the song 'Balls To The Wall' is forever tied to the Berlin Wall fall, maybe more than Scorpions' 'Wind Of Change'.
#80 | Nick C |  ? 
at October 22 2017 17:48:07
I'd agree, although their 1st two albums have a real special place in my heart Breaker saw a huge leap forward and although I really loved the band back then it really blew me away and set the stage for RandW. Metal Heart is sometimes seen as a bit of a step backwards although I really like its slightly more commercial approach. It's funny the homo erotic stylings of the BttW cover never really occurred to me at the time, I just thought it was a naff cover.
#81 | Nick C |  ? 
at October 22 2017 17:29:24
Picked this up when it came out, I'm also at a bit of a loss where I got it from. It may well have been the long gone Destiny mail order site which was run by a very agreeable chap called Simon. Its the Epilogue version signed and numbered. Although I foolishly sold my Icon Live (the sound wasn't so good) this one is going nowhere.
#82 | Explorer |  ? 
at October 22 2017 15:43:09
A good, solid album, but not up to the standard of `Unity`which was a killer record. Missed seeing her live this time round as I was otherwise engaged, going halfway round the world to see another band!
#83 | melodiapositiva |  ? 
at October 22 2017 14:56:14
Although Restless and wild was my favourite album from them for years, i choose this one as their most complete, no fillers .
Udo still sings great (imho his voice changed on Metal heart,less powerful)and Wolf give us some of his best solos on Head over heels or turn me on, this last is one of my top ten solos ever .
He said in a n interview that he made all the guitar parts on the album as on Restless and wild.I agree from Breaker to Russian roulette all their records are great .

While I agree with George that there are too many songs that can't decide whether they are ballads or rockers, I would rate this higher. It does sound good, and when they are rocking, they're very solid. I really enjoy that In Faith album where Godfrey handled lead vocals, and this is pretty close. Just choose a style for each song and stick to it!
#88 | melodiapositiva |  ? 
at October 20 2017 16:45:30
I agree, 'What Is Love' must be one of the most beautiful ballads ever! I also agree with the production quality, the drums on some songs sounds awful, at least on the Scotti Bros CD version, I don't know if the Rock Candy version sounds better, I would buy it again. An AOR classic indeed..
#89 | jeffrey343 |  ? 
at October 19 2017 22:14:46
This is one of those that exceeded my initial expectations and is getting a good amount of play. It reminds me quite a bit of that excellent Faith Circus album from 2013, which reminded me of Black 'N Blue. Throw in a touch of RATT, and that's what I hear with these guys. I expected something with more sleaze than substance based on the band and album names, but this is pretty solid fun stuff.
#90 | jeffrey343 |  ? 
at October 19 2017 21:01:53
This is a winner for me too. It took a while for some songs to grow on me, but this is now an album I can play straight through a few times a week. I can hear the occasional Boston and older Sammy Hagar overtones in the guitar department. And like any good Frontiers release, it has a song reminding you to not surrender Smile
#91 | gdazegod |  ? 
at October 19 2017 10:36:30
The ending duo of 'The Touch' and 'What Is Love' is killer! It's been on rotation the last week, along with a bunch of other stuff from the 1986-1989 timeframe.

Where's the 'Balls To The Wall' review? That album is one of the best metal albums EVER! I think what makes Accept great apart from Udo's voice is the great Wolf Hoffman riffs and solos. He's truly original and one of the best metal guitarists from the 80's.
