|I was told this band is really NVS, man I would love to find the original NVS-s/t , anybody having NVS-s/t and wanting to sell it please email me. Mechanix is darn good stuff, worth buying! email@example.com

|The singer was in NVS. Their best tunes are on this so save money unless you are a diehard collector.

|I disagree, although a lot of good ones are on here from NVS, the track "Slow Burn" (probably their most Rockin Song) was left off of Regenerator... This is a great release though, I prefer NVS which has live songs too, both are AWESOME!!!

|This is American hard rock in the vein of Tour De Force and Fortune, featuring a lead vocalist (John D' Angelo), who has quite a range and isn't afraid to let rip. At times he reminds me a little of Tony Harnell and Raine's David Lindland. Maybe it's that higher pitch vocal delivery and maybe there's even a little heavier Firehouse in there... There are keyboard parts intertwined into the music, but the majority of this album is very much dominated by a hard heavy guitar sound.

|Somebody hand me a pillow so I can sit down...this CD's been kicking my ass on & off for several weeks now!Damn what an excellent disc this is! Straight forward, melodic hard rock with (as Rhycheage points out) just a dose of keyboards. John D'Angelo's vocals are incredible,and the musicianship extremely tight here. I can't believe it took me this long to find this disc. All the songs here are good(most are GREAT),but "Night of the Dancer" is simply in-freaking-credible! Highly recommended rock!

|Mechanix are a band that combine all the best elements of melodic rock and present them in their own unique way. If you find anything to complain about here, then we think that you are beyond help. An icon of melody.

|I was really impressed by this cd. Very good production, and the singer is awesome. Good to see good melodic hard rock can be released in this new decade. The sound is very 80's style hard rock...very good. You can try, buy you can't kill good melodic hard rock!

|I wanted to like this, but the singer drove me nuts -- that Geoff Tate mega-vibrato, pseudo-operatic overkill doesn't do it for me. Otherwise a pretty kickass album, music-wise. Just a hint of some tasteful keys behind guitar-driven, hard-edged melodic rock with some cool compositions and somewhat mechanized production. I like the direction of the songs quite a bit, just not keen on the vocal delivery. A very good album, just not one I'd throw in the "great" category. 78 / 100
