|Welcome back boys - simply - amazing - if your a fan of bluesy rock in the veains of ACDC or GUN - grab this - you will not be dissappointed. Simple guitar riffs, raspy vocals and heavy drums. This is the family member of ACDC.

|HELLO!!!!!!! Me being a long time fan of Krokus,correction old Krokus,I have been waiting for the boys to go back to where Hardware,Metalrendevous,etc left off.I own all the Krokus stuff,and was getting tired of picking up yet another sub-par effort and then wham,this comes out. This is good,in your face rock n roll record,thats the best to describe it.

|I will see KROKUS in some days, live. I can hardly wait. One of the best bands ever.

|Very overrated AC/DC clones. This is indeed right in your face rock, but without any originality ! Nothing special, a band not worth much talking about.
||Date: May 21, 2003 at 20:23|
|This one is even better than "To rock or not to be" , which was a great album. If you're a Krokus fan of the the One Vice at a Time and Headhunter era, you'll enjoy this

|Overrated? Not worth talking about?? Get real. Krokus rocks, and what I've heard from this album sounds great.

|I'm serious, Desslar. This band is a clone band, AC/DC is the original. They rock ? So what ? Not difficult, if you use the same riffs as your godfathers.
||Date: May 25, 2003 at 6:56|
|Come on, it's so cliche to dismiss bands as AC/DC clones. Krokus have plenty of their own sound. And quite frankly, the more bands that sound like AC/DC the better.

|WHAT A GREAT COME BACK album!!!!! I haven't been completely happy with an album from this band since The Blitz. Although some of the others have their bright spots this one is over the top. As for as this being a clone band, everybody copies everybody there are no original bands. Bottom line is the song quality is there and the performance of the band is there so there for its a great album and worthy addition to your collection.

|You guys complaining about Krokus being an AC/DC ripoff? Get real. When you get right down too it, everybody has ripped off somebody... unless of course your Chuck Berry.

|WELCOME BACK GUYS!!!!!, This cd is very very very good man, I can't believe that krokus is back with powerfull songs...best than ever, THANKS FOR KEEP THE FIRE BURNING ON ROCK AND ROLL...FOREVER

|THIS MARKS THE COMEBACK OF KROKUS...WELCOME BACK KROKUS!! AND WE HOPE TO HEAR MUCH MORE FROM THEM IN THE FUTURE.

|Well it's a relief to hear that this one kicks! I'll be buying it for sure! Loved Krokus in their heyday and would love to hear more of that crunch. As for AC/DC comparisons, what gives? Does that mean I can't like Dirty Looks, Rhino Bucket or Kix, too? Sheesh. I give credit to aC/dc but these other bands made some great music too, with their own spin, so I will continue to crank it! How many times in a row can you listen to Highway to Hell, anyway?

|What a great album!! What should I say? They reached the top of the swiss charts with this album! For the first time in their career! Great songs, great production, great Comeback!

|The good news is that they are not trying to fit in to current trends or stretch out musically. Instead they are just wanting to rock. The vocals have not lost a step. This is a fun album and "Mad World" and "Leading The Pack" will have you banging your head and taking a trip back to the 80's!

|I have not heard anything by the band between this and the awful "Change Of Address". That might have to change after hearing this album. This sounds like a back to basics (i.e. sounding like AC/DC) which is good in the case of Krokus after a couple failed pop metal albums. It looks like Switzerland got it right by having this album actually debut at #1 their when released. 8/10

|Finally got this one, and it is good. I would say that if you like AC/DC's 'Razor's Edge' cd then this one is perfect for you. It is not quite as heavy as 'Headhunter' , but it is very good rock and it would be silly to expect Krokus to try and be as young and mean as they were on 'Headhunter'. This record is a refreshing dose of hard rock, well-performed with a more mature approach (yet still young at heart). I applaud Krokus on this fine release!

|Saw the great "Krokus" last fall in a small piece of crap bar in southwestern Michigan and they just plain blew the roof off the place.Storace and the band sounded better than ive ever heard them.Even minus Fernando' (Mandy Meyer now has the gig) they were quite impressive.You've gotta tip your hat to alot of the european bands,they still know how to play the f'n metal. ----

|Excellent comeback album! When I bought this in 2003 it didn't leave the cd player for about 4 months. I got to see them live in 2005 and it was great. Also got too meet the band and they are a great bunch of down to earth guys.

|Yeah guys..a good rocking album that only Krokus knows how to do!!! ...they will always be compared in voice and sound to AC/DC but their particular way of composing songs with that catchy rocking beats is their label..."Leading The Pack","I Want It All"(AOR feel),"One For All","Looking To America","Go My Way","Night Of The Snakes","Freedom" & "Rock The Block" are tracks that surely you'll love...highly recommended by all means!!!.91/100
