concerns and priorities to deal with, so I am postponing the annual Heavy Harmonies

|2-dimensional Swiss act always excelled at being average. 'Burning Up The Night' is an attempt to shake hands with the Kiss army. Its chorus is good, but in that quick-fix sort of way. The rest of the album struggles to impress.

|I know B.Casarin. I was just joking with Jason. He said they were Canadian.

|Don't all good 2nd rate bands come from Canada? Like, April Wine, Krokus, and Motley Crue.

|This is a pretty average outing from Krokus. Nothing really fantastic. Heart Attack is much better.

|Damn I really wanted to give Krokus a try, and bought this cd. I kinda like Headhunter. Its a Rock CD. But what the hell is this.?? The drums sound like crap, and so does all the synth effects and other odd sounds. The best track is in my opinion World On Fire. The music on this cd is so ``Non Hard Rock` and they sound like a band which could easily enter the European Music Contest.

|I'll always love Krokus. They were the first band I purchased my freshmen year in 1995 after listening to NOTHING but AC/DC until then. I was so pissed that 'HEARTATTACK' didn't follow 'The Blitz' and 'Change of Address' did. They would have capitolized on their momentum and probably been much bigger. This album (although bright in some spots) did hurt these rock n roll maniacs and I think gave everybody the excuss to further hate them, as musicians and as people. Thier '95 album RIPS!!!!

|Uno de los mejores discos que han caido en mis manos, imprescindible.

|Just got done listening to this and here's my opinion...blechh. It sounded like the band would fall asleep during 'Hot Shot City' causing the song to end in snoring. 'Say Goodbye' starts out almost exactly like 'Tokyo Nights' but unfortunatly they were just getting my hopes up for what turns into a crap song. And 'Let This Love Begin' is the second cheesiest ballad I've ever heard (next to Britny Fox's 'Save The Weak'). I only paid $6.00 for the thing but I feel like I've been ripped off...

|Krokus goes POP! And they SUCK at it! A better album cover would have been someone blowing up the 'Krokus' logo! The album has a couple of good songs but the rest are pure crap. I bought this album for $4.00, that's about $3.00 too much. For die-hard Krokus fans only.

|i have it,wish i didn't, burning up the night and hard luck hero are the only good ones here, they rest sucks...avoid

|Fag-Hat and anyone else who rags on this album is fucking loony. This is the ULTIMATE AOR release from Krokus. Now is a fucking great song and so are most of the others. So big deal , Krokus went more 'commercial' - it works and there are some great catchy tunes here. WAKE THE FUCK UP!
||Date: May 25, 2003 at 6:51|
|Yeah, problem is they're not an AOR band. That's OK, they get back to rocking with the next album.
||Date: June 24, 2003 at 19:02|
|This has to be Krokus' weakest album. Some good tunes, but hey, their a hard rock band not pop! P.S.Did anyone notice that AORGOD uses the 'F' word 3 times along with the word 'Fag'! Don't turn your back on this guy!

|Alas, exit Mark Kohler, exit all remains of Krokus manhood! This album is terrible, only worth it to the Krokus collector who may occasionally want to hear three tracks from it. Gone is the amazing impact of Headhunter and even the Blitz. I would buy this cd if it were cheap, because I am a Krokus fan. But I don't recommend it to serious metalheads. Perhaps AOR fans with no prior knowledge of Krokus have a higher opinion of this one.

|Good songs but the vibe is piss weak. A heavier production would have made this a top album.
||Date: April 18, 2004 at 17:48|
| This is one of the best albums,representing the glamorous era of the 80`s. Basicaly the whole album is masterpiece. Unfortunately,i can`t say the same about rest of the Krokus albums.Change of the Address is one of the best of all times.

|Wasp,quiet riot,accept,ac/dc and iron maiden all fused into one band-krokus.

|Krokus hit maybe the bottom of the barrel with this album. Completely lifeless "hard" rock. "Burning Up The Night" was a good single, but the rest of the album makes me question my intelligence. 2/10
||Date: August 16, 2004 at 6:06|
|Whats this AOR-pop like crap? this album is much worse than headhunter and the blitz album and certainly much less heavier too. Whats gotten into krokus? The only decent track here is their 80's version of alice cooper's classic school out which remains to be thier biggest hit. Ratings:8/10
|From: AOR freaky

|Jack, strange guy you are ! You say this is crap, only one decent track you say and you rating is 8/10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How do you explain that ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Me, I never liked this act much, just second rate AC/DC clones !
||Date: August 16, 2004 at 20:27|
|I never really liked Krokus overly, but don't dislike them. I can understand the dismay of longtime fans over this one. This is one of the most devoid of passion releases I ever recall hearing. At face value when I first heard it I didn't mind a few decent AOR tunes, but when you hear it enough there sounds like there is no desire from the band to be here and the songs are hollow as f*ck. Sounds like something they had to do rather than something they wanted to do. 5/10

|ESTE ES UN DISCASO BUENO EL UNICO LP QUE TENGO DE ELLOS ES MUY BUENO HASTA UNO DE SUS TEMAS LO COLOCAN EN LOS SIMPSONS SCHOOL´S OUT ES BUEN ALBUM ME QUEDO CON LOS 3 PRIMEROS TEMAS...

|Quite possibly the worst album they ever put out...according to band members they were pretty much led around by the nose on this one by their label Arista.The Alice Cooper' cover was solid.--

|Over the years this one has grown on me. I like all the tracks with the exception of track 3. Although different from everything they had done before there are some interesting tracks on here but I'm glad that on the next release they got back to their metal roots.

|A very pleasant release indeed!.AOR music was on fire that year(1986)and the band could not escape the temptation.Basically the whole album is great but i'd take the ones with the strong "american" feel (# 1,4,7,8 & 9).Recommended stuff.88/100 :-)
