The awesome Arista debut by The Rods is a genre classic. Released around the same time and Y&T's Earthshaker both these albums were mainstays in my collection back in the day. This is choc full of awesome melodic hard rock with a solid production, superb playing and great, great songs. Power Lover, Crank it Up, Nothing Going On are monsters with great playing and superb catchy choruses. The rest are just excellent.

cont... This reissue has been lovingly put together by High Vaultage and contains 2 bonus tracks with Wings of Fire possibly the heaviest, nastiest song The Rods ever recorded. This is a no nonsense rock album similar in style tio the rockier moments of Y&T's Earthshaker if not a little rawer and will definately appeal to fans of classic hard rock a definate 10.

From: Cannedy Date: May 6, 2004 at 4:21
Agree. A lot of memories around this one. Great guitarplay. Kick ass melodic hard rock.

'nothing's going on in the city' is kickass rock!!! I luved this band way back in the 80's, one of the first bands that introduced me towards rockmusic..

From: Nick C Date: April 18, 2005 at 15:07
This album rocks so hard it's hilarious!!! Nothing Going on In the City used to be a favourite headbanging anthem of mine when I was younger....bang leggit to the dancefloor and let rip with some serious air guitar!!! I used to love this album and although my tastes have mellowed somewhat I still rate it! The riffs just go on and on and on...relentlessly! If you like pounding drums, big bass lines and huge riffs then grab this!
