It's the very good album!!!

From: Monroe rules Date: April 14, 2001 at 7:06
it rox dick

From: Dr. Date: May 17, 2001 at 7:24
One of , if not the best album to come out of the nineties. Any music lover should have it as part of their collection.

From: Tanya ~ Date: August 24, 2001 at 21:50
Great cd... Spike has that raspy sound to him like old faces ...seen this band with La Guns years ago...cool bunch of guys and their music is well worth a listen !

From: SleazyMusic Date: September 11, 2001 at 3:31
TOTALLY AGREE with Tanya...Spike's got rock and roll in his veins and the band will kick your ass until you'll dance drunk on the floor....Let's Rock and Roooooooooll...... sleazymusic@yahoo.it

From: MajickalChild Date: December 26, 2001 at 19:05
Love this album -- one of my favorites, even though no one I know knows who they are. Their loss -- ROCK ON SPIKE!!

From: George Date: February 10, 2002 at 16:30
I liked this one. From the day I heard "Seven O'clock" on MTV's Hard 60, I had to pick this one up. It reminded me of 70's era Rod Stewart with Jeff Beck on guitar but it had its own personality too. Check this one out. I still hear "Seven O'clock" on some radio stations at what other time than 7 pm.

From: Desslar Date: April 9, 2002 at 13:13
Great bluesy classic rock much like the Black Crowes or Bad Company.

From: Robin Date: May 3, 2002 at 19:40
Excellent raunchy, bluesy, bar-room music. The best band of the 90's. Would have been huge had they come out 3 years sooner.

From: TIM Date: May 31, 2002 at 23:02
At the end of Seven O'Clock all it needs is "I love ya honey!!!" Sounds awfully close to Rod Stewart in places.

From: Da.b! Date: June 23, 2002 at 8:21
Hy guy! i wanna the lyrics of thin fuckin' album!!!!!!

From: Zakar Date: July 9, 2002 at 1:54
WHAT A ROCK AND ROLL!!! This album recomended for everybody who likes glam rock music

From: t.deexx Date: August 14, 2002 at 22:21
Hey, you it´s the best 90´s song ever without any doubt. We used to play one or two covers of the Quireboys. I still lovin this fuckin´record, really. A decade after, it rockz. Shit, I wanna be Spike!!!! do u think reencarnation is true?

From: Glam fan Date: August 18, 2002 at 1:15
the Quireboys rock. Glad they are back.

From: HairMetalManiac Date: September 7, 2002 at 8:54
This album pretty much bored me...it isn't really bad, but it isn't my cup of tea and I was a bit disappointed with it...I could have just saved my money and put in "Shake Your Moneymaker"...I wouldn't call this sleaze glam at all. I did enjoy Seven O'clock but could have done without the rest...

From: purrfect-kat Date: September 7, 2002 at 21:01
Mmmm "There She Goes Again" is one of my favourite dancin tunes and waaaay better then their big hit song called 7 o clock. . . . . some songs not that good but I like em anyways.

From: Baris Date: September 27, 2002 at 0:39
Firstly this is not glam. Rather a bluesy bar music. It can be in the category of Black Crowes with being a little more commercial. Not a super album but its basis is strong and in some parts it can be enjoyable to listen actually. "7 O'clock", "Hey You" and "There She Goes Again" are my favourites.

From: Buster Date: October 16, 2002 at 23:07
Really good album but a bit slow at times. Glam? No WAY! This is not really down'n'dirty stuff like Johnny Crash, but it's very bluesy. Not like glam at all. My favourite track is Whippin' Boy, and second is I Don't Love You Any More, which is interesting considering so many people have a different favourite.

From: izzy Date: November 17, 2002 at 19:57
good album i picked this up for a $1 for used....lucky me

From: J Scott Date: November 28, 2002 at 22:46
Not glam, just some good party rock. Where's my bar stool?

From: Gar Date: January 23, 2003 at 17:33
The band are very much influenced by classic British rock. In addition to the Faces/Rod Stewart, I detect a little bit of Free. Good album, but perhaps it's a little TOO derivative.

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: January 29, 2003 at 14:03
Grandiosos Como dice Gar recuerda a Rod Stewart pero en versión Hard rock-country. uno de los mejores álbunes de los 90's

From: Blue Tequila Date: March 25, 2003 at 4:02
I found this in a pawn shop and the band name on it is "Quireboys", not "London Quireboys" with the label being Parlophone not Capitol. I take it this is a British import but why is the band name different? Also is this a rare cd or are there 500,000 of these littering Manchester alone? If anyone has any info I'd appreciate it.

From: Emilio Date: April 1, 2003 at 11:14
¿London Quireboys?

From: sylvain Date: April 1, 2003 at 15:36
in Europe they are known as The Quireboys, it's only in United States they add London

From: matt Date: April 2, 2003 at 20:04
great band and album. had the thunder stolen from them by the black crowes. sound a little too much like the band the faces from the 70's that rod stewart sang for. the whole album is great. i've never heard the second album but i can't imagine its bad. their brand new album this is rock n roll is awesome.

From: vikingo666 Date: June 5, 2003 at 15:56
Sin duda que es uno de los mejores discos de la decada de los 90 y de la escena sleazy aunque ellos son britanicos, QUE TIEMPOS AQUELLOS!!!!!!!!!!

From: Eirik-Norway Date: June 9, 2003 at 18:18
Check also their latest album "This is rock`n roll" released in 2001 on Sanctuary records and the -96 album Spike & Tyla`s Hot knives "Flagrantly yours" A really good rock n`roll album. Yes it is Tyla from Dogs d`amour.

From: James Date: August 31, 2003 at 19:27
"I Don't Love You Anymore"-----bought this album just for this song. kind of feel ripped off but not 100% sure. has some good songs but it has been a long time since i pulled it out.

From: jason (FA-Q) Date: October 25, 2003 at 0:13
I was just listening to 7 O'clock. I had no idea these guys sounded like this????? This tune reminds me of Rod Stewart. By looking at the cover of this album you would think these guys would sound more like Pretty Boy Floyd or something gay like that.... Well, than again, Rod Stewart's a poop-shootin' homo, right?

From: TIM Date: October 25, 2003 at 0:35
jason agrees with me. I was really losing sleep wondering about that. lol

From: Cotton C. Lover Date: November 15, 2003 at 19:35
Eirik, I agree with you. Their 2002 album is awesome. Spike and Tyla's cd is incredible!! Also heard that Spike released a solo cd (Blue Eyed Soul) and had another with a band called God's Hotel. Haven't heard either, though.

From: red Date: February 5, 2004 at 0:28
Only glam in appearances. A very strong 70's sound, somewhere between Elton John and Aerosmith. Fantastic album.

From: CurtisLoew Date: February 16, 2004 at 20:31
Except "7 O'Clock", this is pretty generic, by-the-book Black Crowes-Faces-Rod Stewart rock. Get any Crowes record instead.

From: Bunny Date: March 16, 2004 at 13:02
Aca esta London Quireboys...sonido identico a Black Crowes...este album contiene una base de teclado casí perfecta...recomendaciones 7 O'clock,I don't love you anymore...erbunny@telesal.net...para comentarios.-

From: Uncle Salty Date: April 30, 2004 at 13:48
This an awesome album, I love that Faces vibe, the songs from this album are great but I wouldn't say that they were Black Crowes clones, the Quireboys were more basic.

From: Lynyrd Skynhead Date: May 12, 2004 at 18:41
I really have to disagree with anyone who believes the Quireboys were some Black Crowes wannabee band. In fact I would rate A Bit Of What You Fancy much higher than I would Shake Your Money Maker (Black Crowes) though I love both bands. And a side not...I believe they had to call themselves "London Quireboys" in the US due to some legal reasons. But everwhere else, they are simply known as Quireboys. On more thing...worth a look is also their extensive string of cd singles they released during t

From: Lynyrd Skynhead Date: May 12, 2004 at 18:46
this period. They included lots of non album tracks. Also Guy Bailey had a teriffic band called Dog Kennel Hill who released "Sweethearts Of The Rodeo" back in 1999. Also Guy Griffin had his own band called Glimmer who released "Silver Zone" in 1999. And one more band to mention would be Nigel Mogg's band Nancy Boy who released an album in 1996. Lots of good music from Dog Kennel Hill and Glimmer but wasn't a huge fan of Nancy Boy, but it's all worth a listen for all those Quireboys Fans.

From: Tall Texan Date: May 28, 2004 at 1:50
Found this in the used C.D. section @ Hasting's Records in Longview, Texas. I remembered the song "Seven O'clock" from years ago so I gave this C.D. a few spins. I would not recommend this album if you are looking for Glam or Hair Band Metal and there is nothing really hard about it. There were some similiarities to the Black Crowes, but I would not call them a copy of that band. It is more like bluesy party music with a vocalist that sounds like Rod Stewart. I no longer own the C.D.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 20:25
They look like they would rock harder then they actually do. Sounds like The Black Crowes with Rod Stewart singing. A couple tracks do standout "Hey You" and "Seven O'Clock". 5/10

From: fallen angel Date: July 18, 2004 at 19:41
he escuchado el bitter sweet and twisted y me parecec muy bueno.este por ser el primero ,debe ser mejor(no es una regla absoluta pero es en la mayoria de casos).lamentablemente no lo he podido enkontrar.si algun peruano(aunke no kreo en milagros)llega a leer este texto y tiene el disco primero de los quireboys ............PRESTEMELO POR FAVOR.

From: Geoff Date: September 23, 2004 at 7:41
I want to leave it alone and just let the fans enjoy this without my unappreciative shitty words, but I have to say it. This is just one of the worst and hardest to listen to CDs I have ever owned. 'Oh, for the love of god will it stop!' I cried when I played it first. I scraped it on an angle grinder, played pin the dagger on the CD with it... and yeah, it sounded better... but still too close to shit to me so I sold it. IMO - PURELY - it is just bluesy drivel with no value at all. Sorry!!!

From: FRATELLO Date: October 1, 2004 at 9:42
It's one of the best glam albums ever. I remember the time I played Sweet Mary Ann with my friends (fans of grunge but still appreciating the talent of the Boys) - a lot of fun. Good party rock n' roll music. Geoff, don't like the style, don't talk shit Rate it 10/10.

Used to go see the Quireboys alot at the time of the debut, as i knew the girlfriend of Chris the keyboard player. Great band live they were aswell. Very Good Faces influenced stuff and definately NOT A F**ING GLAM band by any stretch of the imagination.

From: Wotty Date: October 1, 2004 at 10:17
Well said that man!!!

From: razor2467 Date: October 2, 2004 at 8:16
I havent heard this cd in a long time, but I do remember it being pretty darn good.........Spike really has the Faces-era Rod Stewart vibe. Pick up a copy of "A Nod is as good as a wink" by the Faces & you'll see......anyways, Great cd, this band should have made it bigger than they did!!

From: FRATELLO Date: October 4, 2004 at 1:36
This record's went gold in US

From: Date: November 19, 2004 at 11:35
GRANDIOSI 10/10 great album

The Best Glam Album Ever , The Best Songs , Hey You Kicks Ass Ever Glan Rock Fan Should Have One

From: rocknrollhistory Date: October 29, 2006 at 10:43
wonderful 10/10 classic.

From: fenixx Date: June 11, 2007 at 17:36
excelent work by these guys, i remember when it came out, most part of rock bands wore so boring, almost everything was very similar, these guys wore fresh air to me. a pitty they had the kick out and black crows tock the gold. this album is far better! thanks a lot quireboys! you rocked!!

From: metalmastermusic Date: June 25, 2008 at 11:05
This is an excellent release !! I've had this as one of my faves for a long time. They have a very unique sound that no one has been able to mimic. If I had to compare someone it may have just a touch of Black Crowes to it. This is by far their best work to date. Best tracks 1,4,6 and 8. This is a must have disc. 90/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 25, 2008 at 23:22
You are completely spot on Metalmastermusic!!!...excellent album or debut!!!....i don't agree with the comparison though...The Black Crowes is more southerm rather than this bluesy Rock'n'Roll!!!.I had the chance to see them live as a support act to Aerosmith back in the late 80's (wonderful show by the way!!!)& they basically kicked butts to dead!!!.The songs are outstanding with that "unique" sound and are worth every dime of your pocket!!!.90/100

From: True Believer Date: May 25, 2009 at 10:36
In fact, many bands considered amateurish are better than "the proffesional ones". The Quireboys can be the best example of the former. Their music is obviously inspired by Faces and other glam rock bands but I have to say that they are better than any of those bands. 8/10

From: george_the_jack Date: May 25, 2009 at 12:20
A mood of Pure Rock n' Roll ligers in the air! Very good album

From: hair metal again Date: December 14, 2009 at 9:33
this is the QUIREBOYS debut release and from the start you realize they are a unique band.they knew exactly what they wanted to do ,good old rock n roll with a harder edge .spike s voice soundslike rod stewart s which is a good thing.many good songs,nice rockin attitude and the QUIREBOYS offer a solid hard rock record.check them out cause they still rock the house with even better releases

From: christos_fcc Date: March 3, 2011 at 16:26
one of the best and hottest pure rock revival albums ever! if you don't like this stauuf you cannot call yourself a rocker. franky miller should be proud of his sons!

From: Buitre Date: May 20, 2013 at 5:00
I bought this one due to the song "Hey You" but back then I didn't dig it too much. Now, almost 15 years later, it turned out to be one of the cd's I play the most. But I can´t consider it Glam or Sleazy, for me it's dirty rock 'n roll with a bluesy touch. 87/100

From: Auslander Date: February 19, 2021 at 14:14
The opening song 7 O'clock sets a high standard. The lead singer has a Rod Stewart rasp that suits this Stonesy kind of sleaze rock. The honky tonk piano is a nice addition. The rest of the album can't reach the high of the first track, but it is still enjoyable enough. 70/100.
