A very good melodic hardrock album, reminds me a bit of DOKKen. I can´t belive that the same vocalist (Mr. Marino), later stopped singing (ON the Le mans album he has a good voice)and began yelling for CACOPHONY.

From: B. CASARIN -MEX Date: September 5, 2002 at 23:08
what a good melodic hard rock disc, buy it!!! 95/100, cheers from mexico!!!

From: David Date: September 6, 2002 at 2:41
Does anyone know anything about their first release 'On The Streets', apparently it's a lot more harder?

From: b casarin MEX Date: October 19, 2002 at 17:32
very harder and less melodic aor

From: Scandinavia Date: December 30, 2002 at 12:35
MAAAAN!!! Just heard some soundbytes of this album on amazing!!! kinda like a more melodic version of KEEL....Very, very good! Gotta find this album somewhere...

The Enuff Z'Nuff prehistory.

From: Harry NYC Date: April 14, 2003 at 20:36
Fist album (On the streets) much harder with some great guitar work. Hells Halls ROCKS!

From: Harry NYC Date: April 14, 2003 at 20:43
Josh Ramos original guitarist that strarted orginal band .

From: Shoemaker Date: May 19, 2003 at 13:41
Everybody who likes the first Heavens Edge album should check out this masterpice!!!

From: Scandinavia Date: October 15, 2003 at 9:39
Damn amazing!!! Listening to 'Addicted' right now...If you're into KEEL I think you'll love this!

From: Cat Date: March 29, 2004 at 15:57
Can somebody send me the 'Addicted' song? My e-mail is I've heard the Heavens Edge album and if it's a Marterpiece then I want it!!! Thanks Cat

From: Rycheage Date: April 4, 2004 at 21:36
There are some good songs on display here. Opener 'Love Lies', 'Never Wanna See You Cry', and the excellent 'Chain Around Your Heart' stand out. 'Sex Guitars And Rock N Roll' is pretty good too, showing Le Mans in a live context.

From: Scandinavia Date: June 23, 2004 at 8:32
Finally found this one on CD...It gets better & better!!

From: rockman Date: October 18, 2004 at 6:58
I always love Sex,Guitar, Rock 'n Roll, from the first time I hear that song. I think that's the best song in this album. I love to hear when Marrino sing 'Sex, Guitar...' and the audience shout 'Rock n Roll...' Fantastic. And I always love to hear Derek Frigo play his guitar. Rest in peace Derek... we'll always remember you.

Does anybody know if Ron Keel appears as guest vocalist here??? I seem to hear some Keel-like shrieks here and there...Or is it just Peter Marrino?

From: Kim HP Date: November 29, 2004 at 12:36
I don't know, but I agree it does sound like Ron Keel's voice in a few songs ("Addicted" for example). Anyway I think this is a very good melodic hard rock album, with some touches of AOR. Particurarly "Chain Around Your Heart" and "Love Lies" are great songs, but I do enjoy the entire album. Great stuff!

From: Geoff Date: November 30, 2004 at 3:42
Wow, I must have been out the room when Ron Keel's influence stepped in on this CD!!! I love Keel, but Ron's got one hell of an awful voice (Still, killer songs and a killer band made them worthwhile) and this dude, Peter Marrino, has a killer voice. Am I mistaken or did he sing for 9.0 too? Either way, this is a killer melodic rock CD and very highly recommended. Don't think there's a filler in sight. Great stuff.

From: figgy Date: January 23, 2005 at 16:05
Hey everyone Ron Keel doesnot appear on this lp.I have an original vinyl that included a black and white picture of the band as well as a 2 page band biography.Also under the credits section it gives mention to 3 other people doing back round vocals:Tom Cosgrove,Andy Bishop,and Jesse bradman.Anyways I picked this up many years ago and still it kicks butt !!!!!

From: rene Date: July 29, 2005 at 15:28
I dont have this album but i have their debut from 1983, ON THE STREETS. Pure early melodic US METAL with great guitars and cool heavy songs on it.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 13, 2005 at 0:35

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 13, 2005 at 0:43

From: aorteto Date: October 25, 2006 at 15:33
I agree, this is a killer CD, melodic rock-hair metal as it best,with great songs like LOVE LIES, LOVE IS A WASTE OF TIME and CHAIN AROUN YOUR HEART. BAD REPUTATION is also great. You must get it.

From: z4roxx Date: April 3, 2007 at 10:53
Here it's very easy to be agree with everyone:GREAT CD!!!!

From: VENOM Date: April 4, 2007 at 14:56

From: lalorock Date: October 11, 2007 at 14:54
La primera impresión cuando escuche este disco fué preguntarme a quien se parece esa voz, y luego dije este Peter Marrino canta bien parecido a Joe Lynn Turner(al menos en el tema 1,igualito!),los temas son excelentes hasta saxo le meten en el 2do,luego llegue al tercer y grandioso tema Love is a Wasted time,volví a preguntarme a quien me recuerda y dije a Tony Liddell y el primero de Strangeways por su ambientación y atmósfera;posee dos grandes baladas la 3y9,a lo dicho solo digo...GRANDIOSO.

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: November 4, 2007 at 13:46
GREAT CD 95/100 VERY GOOD US METAL a true classic this record start where the first one stops ,great guitar chops and powerful vocals by a very underated PETER MARRINO (later with CACOPHONY/the best VAN HALEN clones 9.O 'gone too far') Great production by guitar guru/PRODUCER/DISCOVER/SHRAPNEL owner Mr MIKE VARNEY who introduce DEREK FRIGO to the world with his essential compilation US METAL buy it...YOU CAN FIND a GERMAN bootleg for cheap !

From: CLUTCH Date: May 14, 2008 at 21:35
WOW! Can't believe I have not commented on this one. When it comes to melodic rock, this is top notch and one of my personal favorites. No throw away songs on this one, as it is all one massive hit after hit. I'm not much of a ballad junkie but even those are fantastic (Geoff, you with me?) Can't recommend this one high enough.

From: the rocker Date: September 5, 2008 at 16:59
i have'nt heard this yet. but no one mentions the guitar player from enuff z 'nuff

From: shoemaker Date: September 7, 2008 at 8:10
Yes, Derek Frigo R.I.P !!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 23, 2010 at 16:09
Really an enjoyable album!..with a really good vocalist(Peter Marrino)...Hard Rock played with force and passion but at the same time catchy..just the way i like it!..."Love Lies" what a way 2 start an album,an instant highlight!,"Don't Wanna Work" is a very nice catchy rock track with a nice sax included in the middle of it,"Never Wanna See You Cry" is a nice ballad,"Addicted" is an excellent song,"Chain Around Your Heart" is a fave,AORish number,"Bad Reputation" rocks but "Life Of Rock'n'Roll" rocks even better,"Misunderstanding" is another nice ballad with sax included and "Sex Guitar Rock'n'Roll" rocks lively excellent!.90/ eyes closed!

From: ladsvader Date: January 7, 2012 at 5:21
The best of 1986. Level Master of Hard Rock AOR. Average 100/100

From: edwithmj Date: June 18, 2016 at 19:11
Slightly more polished than the original and a little more AORish too, this album is definitely a pleasant surprise. My picks are: Don't Wanna Work: a nice hard rocker with some sax in it but it works very well; Love Is a Waste of Time: another up-tempo hard rocker with a super solo; Addicted: a very loud rocker with screechy glammish voals; finally, Chain Around Your Heart: a more AORish song with a decent melody. Definitely worth listening to.
