|I remember when this came out and seeing them on the tour about 8 times. I thought they were a mega band that could have been huge but it screwed up on them after signing to Virgin. Hmmmm..... I remember a lot of Aussie bands at the time suffered the same fate after joining that lable. A curse maybe?.....

|They were a great live band, especially with Mark Easton out front. If all you heard was the CD you'd think they were some crappy garage band but they were heaps better than that, this cd didn't do much for them. The production was crap and they had lots of better songs from the earlier lineups which never made the album ???

|I really liked this album. Good rockin' sleaze! Plus, the cd came with free stikkaz!

|faster pussycat meets early skid row. great stuff!

|CAndy harlot sucks and a disgrace to my home country!AC/DC is ten times better than them. They are australia answer to Poison?what a laugh!

|Like I said about Roxus, this is one of those CDs that makes me proud to be Aussie. The killer hard rock of 'Sister's crazy', the wonderful 'Danger' and the beautiful 'Where no one dares' - just a few of the excellent tracks on offer here. Yes, really quite a great commercial hard rock CD. 7.9/10

|This gives sleaze glam a whole new definition. Good musicianship and full of sleaze type cheesy lyrics, this is definitely in the Poison/L.A. Guns camp. Not quite up to their par, but very good nonetheless. Worthwhile party rock if you like it sleazy.
||Date: May 21, 2005 at 17:43|
|Not so good as i expected...Roxus is AOR and much better.

|I can't beleive I found this CD, the album and the (hot metal) demo tape are on high rotataion, for about a month every year or so. Between the harlotts and BB Steal, Aussie rock in the late 80's and early 90's never sounded so good, these two bands kicked arse. If you don't \have access to a copy of this C.D. you are f\doing yourself a disservice, borrow a copy or even beg for one, it rocks like nothing else. ignore all negative comments amnd make your own decision. you will not be disapointed

|I was pretty disappointed with this one. After the rockin' first track 'Backstreet Boys', I had high hopes for the rest of the disc, but unfortunately it doesn't deliver IMO. 'The Other side of love' ain't that bad, but nothing can compare to the album opener. Before hearing this album I heard their 'Hot Metal' demo tape, and the songs on that are done much better than the versions that are on this disc.

|I'm an aussie and I consider most of our home grown music to be crap at best. But these guys were different. This album is terrific hard rock. It was a pity that they came on the scene in 92 otherwise they could have gone places. Heaps better than kings of the sun and even AC/DC.
||Date: November 10, 2006 at 16:48|
|For me This was just an average cd. Could have been a better cd if they had a better production.
||Date: December 17, 2008 at 23:46|
|Absolute classic, the best Aus album in the genre. These guys were different to anything else at the time, could have been huge!

|the Candy Harlots (album line up) have just done a couple of reunion shows and they where great!!! Stay posted for the DVD / Album to follow. Very cool guys happy to have a drink and a chat

|superb debut by CANDY HARLOTS and def a band that knew what was doin!their sound is somewhere between LA GUNS & FASTER PUSSYCAT and with a better frontman they could possibly do more!from the first tunes you can realize their true sleazy attitude which is nt a fake!the guitars and the rhythm section are ok and the songs will satisfy you!"where no one dares","the lady shakes","the wildest way" ,"what are we fightin for" are fine songs and overall Five Wicked Ways a nice addition to your collection

|Much loved band when this came out amongst my friends and I. Sadly, they were a little late onto the sleaze scene. I still play this often and it brings me back to 1992. Essential track: Sisters Crazy.
