If you like over-the-top production, layers and layers of backing vocals (and not just in the choruses... often in the verses as well!) plus an adventurous style, this CD is for you! Think of Def Leppard getting a jumpstart from Extreme's car battery while hotwired to Shotgun Messiah's 'Second Coming'. A lot going on here, with lyrics and sounds flying at you faster than you can digest them. Amazing stuff that I rate at the higher end of my collection.

From: T-BONE Date: January 27, 2003 at 2:47
Hahaha....If anyone sends me $3.00 for shipping, I'll send them my original. I couldn't stand this cd

From: BATman Date: January 28, 2003 at 3:24
Ok T-Bone - send Your email. I was tryin` to buy it on Ebay but someone was faster.

From: ace Date: January 30, 2003 at 8:14
Great guitar work. What ever became of Mr. Tyson? I know he studied with Satch. THe drummer is now a pretty big producer, I believe as well.

From: T-BONE Date: January 30, 2003 at 11:44
Hey Batman...if you still want this cd, my e-mail is iroc_z_man1985@hotmail.com

From: Robert Date: February 4, 2003 at 22:45
Yes, Eric Valentine is a HUGE mainstream producer now. Smashmouth, Third Eye Blind, among others. You could tell he was well on his way with the way he produced this cd. This is an amazing record that is on my all time favorite list!!!

From: Livebait Date: May 21, 2003 at 0:04
So dark, so original. No one played like this in the early 90's or even the 80's for that matter. The bass and drums are just huge and are on a similar in-your-face level as the guitar which is superbly played by Mr.Tyson. (Check him out at geofftyson.com) If you're in love with MASSIVE beats and the most melodic backing vocals around with a generous dose of almost funky rhythms, this one's for you. Unquestionably my favourite album ever. A huge call I know, but this is a masterpiece. Definately

From: Beavrtek Date: May 31, 2003 at 15:27
Amazing stuff. The bozos at Hollywood Records blew it when they dropped this band. The world will never get a chance to hear T-Ride... tragedy truly defined.

I actually bought this CD right when it came out. 'Fire it Up', 'Luxury Cruiser', and 'You and Your Friend' are my personal faves. Not a bad disc at all.

From: Aero Force Mike Date: January 15, 2004 at 21:56
Absolutely stunning. It's so unconventional in its song-structures and almost over-powering layered vocals, yet that's what makes it work... it's very dark and sinister at times, complete with completely twisted jazz & industrial influences, hell if Twin Peaks had a local glam band, this'd be them! Just go to http://launch.yahoo.com/ to check out two of their videos to see what I mean! Amazing band, who'll really grow on you over time. Seriously, there's nothing else like this.

From: Rycheage Date: February 4, 2004 at 1:05
A supremely talented and under estimated trio from the Bay Area of San Francisco who released their one and only album during 1992, though who had been in existence for many years prior. For a trio, these guys surely pack a punch: technically adept, resourcefully different, with a flair for the dramatic.

From: red Date: February 8, 2004 at 21:30
The album is good, somewhere between King's xand Extreme. They were even better live. I saw them open for Tora Tora in the summer of 92 and they were amazing. Great sound and energy for a trio. The drummer even had a keyboard strapped to the side of his drumkit and he play the keyboard parts and be drumming with one hand at times and it still sounded good.

From: wolf Date: April 21, 2004 at 5:35
amazing stuff. highly recommended. queen meets def leppard and harem scarem. this one will never leave my collection.

From: Storyline Date: April 21, 2004 at 23:34
I had the pleasure of meeting Eric Valentine in his home studio where he recorded this (through a mutual friend). It was understood that he was using this as the vehicle that would launch his Producing, Engineering & Mixing career. He was fortunate enough to have parents who supported him both emotionally and financially as he had a fabulous studio. After the cd was relased they did a couple gigs. I saw them in SF at the Stone and they couldn't pull it off live.........

From: Storyline Date: April 21, 2004 at 23:36
....the vocals were terrible and they were not tight at all. At any rate, this is one of my all time fav cd's of all time. Don't care too much for the music he produces now. But it's great that someone from the area is making a living in music...

From: Mr M Date: May 4, 2004 at 19:09
Shame the lead vocals didn't quite match up to everything else on the album. Same story live. There's some top tunes on 'ere, mind. You and Your Friend? Not 'arf!

From: storyline Date: May 17, 2004 at 16:48
I actually like the vocals on the cd, just thought that they should have made the lead vocal intelligible. people like to sing along and if they can't understand them, that's a negative. commercially, I think that's what killed the cd. but as I said, Eric Valentine wasn't too concerned with the commercial success of the cd as long as it forwarded his producing/engineering career.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 15, 2004 at 16:05
What an incredible mix of sounds. Like a melding of Def Leppard, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Queen. Sometimes the layered vocals get too out of control, but the sound is so original and creative. 9/10

From: Kip Date: August 30, 2004 at 23:40
'I think I'm in love with you and your friend, honest I do. I can't see you and me and her without each other. And I hope you feel the same way too. Cuz I think that I'm in love with you.' AAHAHAHHAA... HAHAHHAHAHHAAA. great stuff. This CD is weird, and it needs to be taken at face value to be taken seriously, not the other way around. I like the electric bass sound used throughout and the lead vocalist had some great pipes! It's not a CD I would recommend, but I'm real glad I own it.

From: Hairspray Date: November 11, 2004 at 8:35
Original and exciting. I recommend this to anyone 10/10. A shame it is so short and they didn't release any more. Love the harmonies and I love all the songs. I've got a CD by a band called 'Snake River Conspiracy' (not suitable for this site)They did a version of 'You and Your Friend'. While it's not as good as the original, having a girl singing it does make me feel warm!! Eric Valentine co-produced their album, there's a co-incidence! Altogether now.. 'Rock and Roll, Zombies from Hell!'

From: Hairspray Date: November 11, 2004 at 8:46
I saw them live in the UK and they were great. Of course the multi-layered harmonies couln't be replicated live but hey, it was still a top gig. Dan sings a lot lower in a live situation. He obviously doesn't wear his tightest trousers on stage!!

From: glamandshred Date: December 22, 2004 at 10:19
For me ... one of the best CD, ever ;-)

From: z4roxx Date: January 13, 2005 at 21:57
ahaha!!one of the worst cd I did have!!After the second track it's finished in my home trash!ahaha!!Def Leppard??It's industrial hi-tech..shit rock maybe!!

From: Erik Date: January 14, 2005 at 3:35
You are so right z4roxx. This is baaaaaaaad. Shouldnot be listed here.

From: Nick C Date: January 14, 2005 at 12:30
This is a superb CD. A mix between Queen (layered backing vcls), Van Halen (guitar parts), some thrash influence, some funk influence, 'Out There' lyrics and vocals ... totally awesome (hate that word!). Definately one of my desert island discs. If you are after rock by numbers then don't buy it you'll hate it. BUT if you have an adventurous side (and a sense of humour) you'll love it.

From: Mark Date: February 5, 2005 at 19:21
Interesting album. I actually heard while at a Monster Magnet show. The sound guy played the whole album. Couldn't figure who would make a techno album with Def Leppard's backing vocals. Very good in one respect (song writing, guitar playing) very horrible in the other (Techno rhythms, lack of any real solid riffs).

From: Aero Force Mike Date: February 6, 2005 at 20:31
I see a lot of reviews making Def Lep and Queen comparisons and I honestly think that completely misleads a lot of people. Yes there's loads of layered choral-like vocals ala mid-career-Def Lep and Queen, but the music itself is ecclectically structured, electronically-rhythmed (with more than a hint of industrial club fetishism) as well as an aura of darkness... in terms of tone, strucure and style, Angel Dust-era Faith No More is the closest I can think of, without sounding like Faith No More.

From: z4roxx Date: February 7, 2005 at 13:39
This cd worth nothin'of nothin'!it doesn't sound similar to nothin',only similar to shit!!ahahaha!!0/10!!!!!!!!

From: Steve.T Date: February 17, 2005 at 4:28
I read everything here and decided to listen for myself. I got it off of ebay....and wished I hadn't. If you're reading everything here and thinking that it can't be as bad as people have said (like I did) then take it from me, it IS as bad as people here say. Good luck to you if you like this....to these ears it is almost unlistenable and should never have seen the light of day. HORRIBLE.

From: Erik Date: February 17, 2005 at 6:47
Should have trust(ed) my comments but especially zvroxx's Steve. He knows all about (good) qualtiy melodic aor hard rock. This is f***ing horrible. Glad i got the cdr's of this one. Pure crap. Garbage.

From: z4roxx Date: February 17, 2005 at 12:34
Hi Erik!!It's so easy doin'a shit album as this one!!Maybe my grandfather could be play on this band with more appreciable results!ahahaha!!

From: orietto Date: February 17, 2005 at 12:57
z4roxx mi dici dove hai imparato l'inglese cosi bene mi piacerebbe scrivere anche io per far amicizia con tutti i dupes del sito

From: z4roxx Date: February 17, 2005 at 13:15
L'ho imparato da tutti i dupes del sito ahahahahaha

From: eRIK Date: February 18, 2005 at 2:32
Hi z4roxx ! You are so right. Anybody without any talent could have made this album

From: Rockhead Date: February 18, 2005 at 3:00
Look at when this was released-No one released an album that sounded like it. Hats off to T-Ride for trying to be different. I actually like this CD and in a club this rocked. Zombies, Luxury Cruiser, U and your friend, Backdoor Romeo all sound great to my ears. THe layered harmonies, the song structures are all great. This obviously dosn't appeal to everyone-but if you want to try something different than the normal formuliac melodic rock it is worth the investment.

From: Popò Umana Date: March 3, 2005 at 7:51
Grand capolavor!!Se tu ascolt grups stil surrender,hot boy,lancia,spada ed elmo dis cd is greit!!!!Super melodies da buttars per terr!!!!!!

From: Lennie Date: June 3, 2005 at 4:37
I was going to dig this out and have another listen...cant find it though. Oh well, will spend an hour doing something more interesting than listening to what I remember as being a complete cowpat of an album. And that's being kind! Anyone who can compare this to the magnificent Queen needs to have their ears syringed.

From: Leykis101 Date: November 20, 2005 at 10:06
This cd fucking blows! I bought it on a Hollywood Records Bankrupt bin! I got this Hi-C(the rapper) and ??? for like $1.99, but of all that, folks, their is a little song on here called, You and your friend, that is only explainable as true wit! and while I wont recomend this cd by any means, that song stands atop, as one of my favorites ever!

From: David sleaze Date: May 17, 2008 at 1:55
this album is not hardrock , if you hardrocker don't buy it..

From: BIG-TIME Date: August 14, 2008 at 9:34
I can hear the Extreme influence but DL and queen no chance, the production is AWESOME (wish all rock albums sounded like this) shame the songs are crap. The vocals have this sort of rap rock with a touch of darkness to them, 'I Hunger' aint to bad but the album just sounds like a sort of early 90's grunge or new metal band pity...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

From: playhogan Date: April 30, 2013 at 20:27
This truly sucks!! If someone would like a copy please let me know.

From: hair metal again Date: August 24, 2017 at 5:03
i remember back in 92 when this one hit my fav record store and we put it in the cd player: first impression was great with the production ,the musicianship & vocals in excess but after a few spins you d see that there were no really standout songs to make it solid as a whole record!these guys were really talented ,combining things and you can hear almost everything from bands like KING S X,SAIGON KICK,NITRO ,EXTREME but nearly as good &solid !interesting release &addition to your collection
