sleeze beez have the ultimate powertool.you have the guts to follow them?10 for sure!

From: macD Date: June 8, 2002 at 10:37
Sleeze Beez were up there with Skidrow for me. this Cd is more Def Lepp than 'Screwed..' but still a killer. All hail the Beez

From: jason Date: June 8, 2002 at 12:20
You know, I never bought this album and I don't know why not? I have their first and I liked it alot. When this one camme out though I just never got it. Maybe I should have?

From: koogles Date: July 2, 2002 at 8:18
Jason: you can't go wrong with this one. 'Watch That Video' will rip your head off and feed it to your ass. HUGE Def Lep style that will get you adrenalized!! Sleeze Beez never grunged out and that fact alone makes me like them even more!! Recommended!!

From: David Date: August 10, 2002 at 22:35
These guys have a third album called 'Insanity Beach'

From: METAL 4 EVER Date: September 21, 2002 at 17:48
Insanity Beach is actually their fourth album. Sleeze Beez first album (which not many people know they had) is called Look Like Hell. This release dose not have the vocals of Andrew Elt, they are fronted by original vocalist 'Tiger'. This CD only came out in Holland, and Belgium. Power Tool is my favorite Sleeze Beez album, followed by Screwed Blued & Tattooed, then Look Like Hell, then Insanity Beach, I have not yet heard the live album (so no comment there). SLEEZE BEEZ ROCKS! Metal 4 Life

From: Music Man Date: April 21, 2004 at 9:51
If you dig the Def Leppard sound, some of the songs on this one will put a big smile on your face.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 15, 2004 at 3:41
They changed from sleaze rock to Def Leppard clones on this one. But this album is pretty good with some huge sounding drums and guitar. Great production job. Favorite tracks are 'Watch That Video', 'Bring Out The Rebel', and 'Raise A Little Hell'. 8/10

From: Steve Nightrain Date: August 21, 2004 at 23:40
most of you guys right, the first time i heard this album, i thought 'what, did they wrongly put Hysteria CD on Sleeze Beez' album ?' lol but i must admit these guys really know how to rock, the ballad 'i don't want to live without you' is pretty neat. I give it 8.5/10 considering it was released in the year of grunge, they're brave and smart enough to not follow that stupid genre ^^

From: Geoff Date: August 22, 2004 at 23:07
What a superb album this one is! A personal favourite of mine, the fellas from Sleez Beez, this contains some of my favourite tracks of thier career. 'Watch that video' is pure bliss, 'Bring out the rebel' is a melodic gem, 'I don't want to live without you' is a great ballad and the closer, 'Pray for a miracle' is melodic perfection again. A great, solid collection of big melodic hard rock.

From: AOR freaky Date: August 23, 2004 at 6:12
Geoff, this is third rate stuff, my dear ! Once again you show that you know nothing at all about pure AOR ! Why do you give any comments on AOR, I ask you ! You're in brainless hard driven, straight ahead hardrock ! Nothing against that, but don't tell us this is great, my friend. I know these guys, there from Holland, and they're nothing special at all ! Just plain boring third division hardrock. If you like hardrock, listen to the REAL QUALITY stuff ! Message understood, buddy ! I'm smiling

From: T-Bone Date: August 23, 2004 at 11:47
My dear?!?!?! mwahahahahahaha Hey freaky, you're still invited and welcome to come over to the message boards. Dan has confirmed that you are indeed NOT banned. Quit making excuses and c'mon over. You and Geoff can carry on your 'discussions' over there in the flamefest section and never have to worry about being told what you can't say. HURRY HURRY HURRY!!!! NOW NOW NOW!!!!

From: Dean Date: August 23, 2004 at 14:08
My DEAR Freaky- i don't go to the message boards much either but if you show up I will. I am so sick of your condescending attitude towards anything that isn't AOR. Why don't don't you take a few lessons from your friend Wotty? At least he knows how to support the music he loves without feeling the need to rip everything else to shreds. Personally you're making me think of another place I'd like see those keyboards jammed.

From: AOR freaky Date: August 23, 2004 at 15:08
T-Bone : I can live with your critics ! You're right ! BUT ..., I only react when some attack me FIRST ! You have to read ALL comments and see the evolution ! To Dean : well, didn't you already notice that I NOT only like AOR, but also pomp, symphonic rock/metal, melodic hardrock, pure hardrock, progressive rock, powerrock and even some metal ! It only has to have QUALITY ! And I admit that there is also BAD AOR ! Read my comments on bands of different genres, then you'll understand ! Strange

From: AOR freaky Date: August 23, 2004 at 15:12
most of you see or read only the negative reviews, not the positive ones (at least 800f my comments is positive !, check it out !). But I have AN OWN OPINION and I'm not afraid to give my opinion and comments. It's always right from the heart, whatever you may think. I'm always honest, what more can I do ?! Say that I like a record if I hate it ? I'm not a trend or hype follower, I'm not jumping on the bandwagon to follow some created hype, like some of you ! I have my own taste ! Goodbye !

From: T-Bone Date: August 23, 2004 at 18:55
Once again Freaky avoids the 'invitation' to bring his opinions and views to the messageboards for discussion

From: Geoff Date: August 23, 2004 at 22:00
How dissappointing, it appears as though my comments in reply to AOR Freak were removed from the site. What a shame, I thought they were some of my best. Well, either way in lighter terms I would like to make note of the fact that I did not call this disc AOR and do not think Sleez Beez ever wanted to be AOR. Just great driving melodic hard rock. I think it was the comments about homosexuality in reference to the 'My dear' comment that got me removed. Oh well, I also do not see the relevance

From: Geoff Date: August 23, 2004 at 22:03
of AOR Freaky informing us that these guys are dutch and that he knows them. What does that have to do with the quality of this disc? As I said earlier, I also know a lot of dutch people, but this disc is still excellent melodic hard rock. But apparently liking melodic hard rock as well as AOR means I am not allowed to comment on AOR because AOR Freaky won't let me. Sorry again sir, and how I wish those first comments I made were still here... but spelt correctly

From: Adam Blackheart Date: August 31, 2004 at 19:18
Yeah, My Guys!!! Let me translate one title in polish: What's that Smell - Co Tak Jebie

From: KAN FROM TAIWAN Date: September 8, 2004 at 22:56

From: kan from taiwan Date: October 11, 2004 at 23:29
but why they need to follow Def Leppard style,they got their own! i like Screwed Blued & Tattooed more!

From: morgan Stillo Date: January 7, 2005 at 19:19
These guys rocked! And I bet they still do, if or when they ever get back together again! Powertool is a great, majestic album, does sound like Leppard a lot, but hey! We're into rock aren't we? And this one rocks!!!!!

From: RattnRoll Date: March 20, 2005 at 7:45
I had the album screwed, blued n'tattooed and thought it was ok. I picked up Powertool with similar expectations, but it exceeded my expectations. Powertool is a great album! Most of the songs are just perfect. I really like 'Raise a lil hell', 'watch that video' and 'bring out the rebel' Their sound on this album reminds me of Skid Row, Def Leppard and even a hint of Trixter at times...

From: stryper Date: July 7, 2005 at 5:25
this sounds great cranked up in the car.def leppard with balls.love it.a must have if you like dl.

From: 7Sinner Date: July 17, 2006 at 11:14
This is a much better release than "Screwed" and not just because of better production. I believe they really hit their stride with this one. Not a bad song on here. Now I'll have to hunt down "Insanity Beach"...

From: erik Date: June 18, 2007 at 13:05
My fellow countrymen had their very finest hour on this one. Melodic rock a la DF but with more edge to it. Excellent production and some awesome drumming and guitarwork. Sinsational stuff 9/10

From: juan carlos Date: January 6, 2008 at 12:24
HardRock Tan bueno como su conocido "Screwed.." y bien variado. Coros de primera que enganchan aunque la mayoría a lo Def Leppard con mucho descaro. vaya temazo de Melodic HardRock llamado "Bring Out the Rebel" Mi Súper-Favorita, "Watch That Video" "Raise a Little Hell", la balada "I Don't Want to Live Without You", "Like a Dog" a lo AC/DC, "Pray for a Miracle" "What's That Smell?" Súper Coros en ambos, y asi... Súper-Recomendado si quieres Rockear a tope. 9/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 18, 2011 at 10:34
Great album!!!...enjoyable almost a 100% if it weren't for the "in your face" Def Leppard choruses ...the band loses credibility somehow ..."Raise A Little Hell"(brilliant song!),"Watch That Video","I Don't Want To Live Without You"(solid ballad),"Head To Toe","Bring Out The Rebel"(AORish ),"What's That Smell?" & "Pray For A Miracle"...apart from the Def Leppard issue in here, this band is wonderful ...the kind of band that put a smile in your face undoubtebly!.94/100

From: patriotsfan29 Date: August 18, 2012 at 15:56
These guys never achieved the level of success they deserved. Every one of their records are solid, not five-star or anything, but enjoyable anyways. Every song is great, but I loved Dance, Watch That Video, Raise A Little Hell and I don't Want To Live Without You.

From: Alexxtcatz Date: September 26, 2015 at 12:04
twenty years i still thinkin' about the reason why this album was never released in Japan with all lyrics and bonus track called "the year of living dangerously"

From: CC Date: December 31, 2018 at 10:09
Many many years ago there was a short lived store near to me that was basically a warehouse clearance store for Our price, and it used to sell cassettes and CD's at incredibly low prices. I would go in there on a weekly basis and buy pretty much anything (on cassette back then) that looked like 80s hair metal, glam, metal or rock. I bought Screwed blued and tattooed this way. Beyond a couple of songs, I thought it was just "OK". Years later I replaced the cassette with a CD and decided to pick up this one with little expectations. God damn though was I blown away by this one. Maybe it was the Def Leppard influence that was so obvious on this one, or maybe it was just the songs were so much better, but whatever it was it kicked my arse. Listening to it again now on the last day of 2018 and it still sounds fucking great. Thank god for cheap CDs or else I might never have bothered with this.
