Best "album"x about 3 i ever had

From: Desslar Date: June 3, 2002 at 16:23
Great album, available in a clearance bin somewhere near you. Hard, fast, this just plain rocks! Much better than the dull album that precedes this.

From: Janxy Date: January 1, 2003 at 17:48
This is an old time favorite. Haven't heard it in ages, but just browsing the track listing brings it all back. From memory this had great production vibe, fun, melodic songs, with top backing vocals and arguably some of my all-time favorite hooks. However, Marc Storace's somewhat nasal vocals are probably not to everyone's taste.

From: Metalhead Date: March 19, 2003 at 10:37
Just got this one and I must say that this album is very easy to like. The playing is good and the band is full of energy. Every song has excitement in it. Although Speed Up is an absolute rip-off of that DIO's song WE ROCK. And nobody in his right mind can tell me to my face that it isn't. A good album nevertheless.

From: steve Date: May 23, 2003 at 17:47
oh its good, far better than change of adress

From: Gar Date: May 26, 2003 at 0:47
No real standout tracks, but pretty good hard rock all the way through. Far from the best, however they've done much worse than this.

From: Leatherwolf Date: June 2, 2003 at 17:50
One of my fav cd's!!Like Wild Love, Winning Man, and like widowmaker said above Let It Go fucking smokes!!

From: Scandinavia Date: June 7, 2003 at 11:12
Yes, a decent album for the average listener...This is an album that just has to be in your collection. I don't know why this should've been their commercial breakthrough cos the rip-offs are all too obvious...Can't recall what tracks we're talking about but I remember hearing both Dio, Priest, AcDc and Zeppelin rip-offs on this album...And we're not just talking influences...NO, we're talking TOTAL rip-offs of different riffs from these fine artists...Too bad cos Krokus usually rock...

From: Aero Force One Date: October 16, 2003 at 15:06
Not terrible, but no where near the class of Blitz or Headhunter. Incidentally, the first track 'Everybody Rocks' is an absolutely criminal rip-off of Def Leppard's 'Rock Rock Til You Drop'. The opening riff to 'Wild Love' is also a total copy of Judas Priest's 'You've Got Another Thing Coming'. Its endless copycat riffs destroy my enjoyment of an otherwise competent album.

From: Headbanger72 Date: January 20, 2004 at 20:42
Best album of 1988, next to Appetite for Destruction. To think I almost sent it back to Columbia House. Yes, it's full of ripoff riffs, but then most bands rip each other off.

From: Metal Pete Date: January 21, 2004 at 10:52
Did someone just compare this record to Appetite for Destruction? I think I am going to be sick.

From: Blue Tequila Date: January 21, 2004 at 16:44
lol...yeah it's a good release for Krokus but 2nd best album of 1988??

From: Petrus Date: February 18, 2004 at 16:53
I've bought this album on a casette, when I was 15. Now I'm 27 and I still have it. Where can I purchase the CD version?

From: Big Mike Date: April 7, 2004 at 16:36
Krokus's best album along with "the blitz". Great ballads, great rockers. Krokus's albums are erratic at best but this one shows you how good they can be.

From: Richierocker Date: August 11, 2004 at 14:30
Just got this one used. Pretty solid, great production and good hooks and beats. It starts off great and towards the end loses just a little steam{not much though}.

From: jack Date: August 16, 2004 at 6:14
Appetite for destruction is from 1987! Headbanger72,this is a great hard rock album but its not even in the top 20 album of 1988. Saying its number two hard rock album is already crazy but number two among all? Just to name some better than this:Cinderella's long cold winter, judas priest's ram it down,britny fox's debut album,van halen's OU812,poison's open up and say...ah,ratt's reach for the sky,megadeth's peace sell but whos buying it,dokken's beast from the east,scorpion's savage amusement

From: jack Date: August 16, 2004 at 6:18
,manowar's kings of metal,Gun'n'Roses's G'n'r lies(now thats from 1988) and lots of other albums in produce in 1988. I don't think it'll be the worst day of you life if you sent it back! PEACE!

From: pier Date: August 26, 2004 at 15:23
Comprateve 'sto ciddi!!! Ŕ semplicemente eccezionale! rock 'n roll ignorante e grezzo come solo questi grandi pecorari svizzeri sanno fare! (affanculo i Gotthard!) Cafonaggine all'ennesima potenza! Assolutamente i migliori! IGNORANT MUSIC FOR STRONG PEOPLE!!

From: PM Date: August 26, 2004 at 20:55
Great band! Pier got right 'cause this is the definitive ignorant metal band that drive hard your head and bang your ass! Fuck Gotthard, Kissexy and all the monogamy-bands!!! REAL METAL IS LIKE A FART IN THE BUS: THE PEOPLE RUN AWAY WHILE YOU ARE LAUGHING!

From: pier Date: August 26, 2004 at 21:24
Ehy PM (Porno Man? I know who are man...) thx for the support!!! Fuck the kissexy and all the tribute bands in the world!!!!! Even if Krokus are very similar to Ac/dc and many other bands they don't need to play cover songs to be great!!Drinkin beers, havin' medicine drug (AM? Where are you? Do u agree with me?), fuckin' rock 'n' roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Gerd Muller Date: August 27, 2004 at 4:00
...here I am, my friends, what can I tell you more? Of course I like Krokus 'cause they are a real entertaining band with good songs and tons of attitude and I blame as well cover-bands for their lack of personality and ambition. And now gimme my medicines and "go to die killed" ("annate a morý ammazzati"). Rockarolla.

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 19, 2006 at 22:20
I am laughing my self silly at the moment after just reading some of these reviews. Especially the one that gave this a "second best" cd award only outdone by Guns N' Roses - "Appetite for Destruction" for the best music of 1988. The only way this would rate highly would be in the "Polished Terd" Category.

From: Helix Date: November 13, 2006 at 14:01
Again reading the comments up above some people live in dreamland. This again is just another great piece of work done by krokus. Krokus does not need to put themself up against GNR or any other band they have there own style of music. Axl Rose only wished he could sing or be in a band as good as Krokus.I'm proud to be able to go back and listen to some of the old cd's and say this is what a masterpiece is suppose to sound like.

From: Metal T Date: November 13, 2006 at 16:49
Krokus flat out crank ! Ive always liked "Heart Attack" and couldn't give a fat f**k less what anyone else thinks.Ive got a live boot from the late 80's and they do "Let It Go" on there and man it smokes ! (Storace and Von Arb sounded pretty impressive back in the day).If i had to make a critique of this particular album-i would probably have beefed up the guitars a tad on "Winning Man" and a couple others. ----

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 19, 2008 at 13:55
This is a very good Krokus album even though the AC/DC comparison in some parts of the songs are inevitable apart from Marc's similarity to Bon Scott tone of voice.Anyway,i remenber seeing these guys live during the release of this "Heart Attack" album..they were supporting The Nuge (a.k.a. Mr Ted Nugent)in England.They rocked the place out!!!."Everybody Rocks","Wild Love","Let It Go","Flyin' High" & "Bad Bad Girl" are the best but to be honest all the songs rock indeed!!!.85/100

From: the rocker Date: November 30, 2010 at 14:57
This is the best cd in Krokus' collection. Let it go and wild love make this a must all by themselves.

From: hair metal again Date: December 14, 2012 at 10:11
fine release by KROKUS back in 88,recorded in the States with producer Michael Wagener!all the songs are remarkable but there is no big hit and i d prefer a more commercial edge in 1 or 2 songs!otherwise this is straight hard rock with great riffs ,many hooks and big choruses!KROKUS is a very good band and every release of them is essential!
