|This is a great rocker! These guys had the songs & the chops. Yet they never got the recognition that they deserved. Stranger than Paradise is perfect, why this wasn't a top ten single on the pop charts is beyond me.

|the ultimate party rock n roll album; hup holland hup.

|I think it's a little uneven overall. But I looked for it for a long time because I had to have "Stranger than Paradise"! That song should've been HUGE!

|"Stranger Than Paradise" did make the charts but should have done better then it did! "Heros Die Young" should have been on a movie soundtrack....maybe it was? I am not sure of the year but these guys released an album called "Insanity Beach". I am pretty sure it is fairly new.

|A real high-octane adrenalin rush. "Stranger Than Paradise" is 100% class all the way. While there's nothing else on the CD that gets the blood pumping quite as vigorously, "Damned If We Do, Damned If We Don't" celebrates vintage "High n' Dry" Def Leppard like it's nobody's business! A pretty solid listen, especially at the highest volume settings possible!

|Title track is one of my all-time favorites. If this band makes any mistakes, it's that they occasionally get a bit too soft, as if trying for a hit. As if Top 40 radio would give a chance to a band called Sleeze Beez!

|Great dutch band that mixed Def Leppard, Motley Crue with a touch of AC/DC. Stranger than paradise is in the aor heaven, the title track is a wild party metal 100% a la Motley Crue.

|Skid Row meets Def Leppard!!! Awsome songs with awsome vocals! Should have been huge! They are just as good as those who "made it"! Teriffic stuff!

|Back when this album came out I loved it. I played the crap out of it! But when I hear it now I don't feel the same way. I still think the guitars rock and the beat is good, but over all it is kinda silly. It wouldn't stop me from going and seeing them live. But I don't think that is going to happen any time soon.

|killer melodic rock the way it should be played. awsome. i recommend it to anyone who appreciates great melodic hard rock.

|Provocativly named "Sleeze Beez" take a more varied approach to standard AOR-ready Heavy Metal than the average bands. "Stronger Than Paradise", for instance, is highlighted by a flavorful, exotic lead and "Damned If We Do, Damned If We Don't" features the unlikely augmentation of a horn section. "The Western World" proves Tough!!! "When The Brains Go To The Balls", a problem that I'am very familiar with.

|HARD ROCK CON MAYUSCULAS.Tipico Hard Rock de sonido americano donde llama la atencion la caña que llevan en todo el disco,temas muy vivos y llenos de energia de grata escucha,nada que ver con esos discos Hard-Rockeros donde imperan los medios tiempos pesados y engorrosos.MUY BUENO.

|I don't agree with this album sounding americanized...Great songs and all...Party rock all the way but listen to the title track....Huge comparisons to Accept...Sounds weird but works out great on the album...Not the best hard rock album ever but surely it can fire up any party!

|Run of the mill 80's pop-metal played with a bit more energy than most. Very inconsistant, going from the mindless boredom of "House is on Fire" to the frenetic and wonderfully nasty title track. This bunch would have benefited from some song writing help and a mix that brought up the drums a bit. I love the raunchy attitude, but would have preferred brains (Love/Hate, Cats in Boots) to stupidity (PBF, Poison, Faster Crappycat).
||Date: October 27, 2003 at 23:27|
|Excellent party 80's style rock. Has the over-the-top production that was the staple in the 80's. The title track, "Rock In The Western World" and of course "Stranger Than Paradise" rock hard. 9.0/10.

|I actually just picked this one up not too long ago. I had rememberd the song Stranger Than Paradise from back when it came out, I liked it but it wasn't my favorite. But, had I knon how good the rest of the album was, I'd have gotten it sooner. Good songs, fun to listen to. All in all a very good album.

|Great album! I loved Sleeze Beez. Was really impressed by the lead guitarist, tasteful and clever at the same time. Stranger than Paradise is brilliant! But also Screwed, Rock in the western world, Damned...

|Insanity Beach was much better than this. Check out "If you hate rock n' roll...' a monstrous Led Zep/Metallica hybrid.

|Found this for $1.00 at a used C.D. shop. I can't say that I hated the music, but nothing about it really impressed me. I listened to the C.D three times all the way through when I first bought it, and again several days later, and nothing stood out. I finally got rid of it in an internet trade. I like my metal much heavier so maybe I'm not the person to ask.

|Este disco es la ostia , de principio a final es una puta caña ,temas con una energia que te cagas....musica garrula de la ostia y vacilona para hacer el macarra en el buga.

|Great album. Stranger than Paridise is worth admission alone. Very very good hard rock. I believe Andrew Alt is doing sound for Walter Trout currently. Very cool guy and has great pipes. Get this one. You will not be disappointed.
||Date: August 22, 2004 at 23:09|
|'Stranger than paradaise' is a gem of gigantic proportions and 'This time' should have been the biggest ballad of all time. Elsewhere, the rock is hard like 'Brains go to the balls' and 'Damned if we do...' Overall, it's just a killer hard rock CD and runs rings around the debut.

|Always makes me laugh when these hard-rock bands cover themselves in tattoos and have a picture taken in a smokey bar with a pool cue in hand, trying to look like Guns n' Roses or someone, and then they release a single that's about as heavy as REO Speedwagon. "Stranger than Paradise" is a great commercial tune, and is worthy of me keeping this album alone. The ballad is pretty decent too, but most of the rest isn't. 5/10.

|I don't know if think these guys used their brains on every track. The lyrics are really silly, goofy and sing mostly about sex. Hey it was the time of hair and babes. Still it was pretty catchy. You defintely can't take this stuff seriously.

|Screwed is a fuckin' brilliant album. Great(big!)drums and outstanding vocals. Catchy, raunchy songs. And Chriz van Jaarsveld is one of the best, and most underrated lead-players on this planet! Ever tried to copy one of his solo's? Weird stuff! The whole band sounds great! Also on powertool, but this one kicked my ass! And it still does!
||Date: January 16, 2005 at 5:50|
|this band is more in the line of the American sleazy bands,like Motley Crue,Tesla and Skid Row.i don't know why people compare them to Def Leppard.they copy a lot of everything.e.x.the first riff of they cd is taken from Kiss "rock 'n' roll all night"!not the best and most inspired band in the world.but at the end they win you,as you realize that they mix a lot of things in there,and actually bring out energy and fun...not bad!

|I played this CD back in the early nineties for one of my buddies who isn't into much hard rock. He said "This is what rock & roll is all about." Pretty strong words and I think it sums up this album. 8.5/10
||Date: January 28, 2005 at 12:52|
|This cd is fantastic,IMO.Great tunes under good and clean production.I think their best release....

|Now we're cooking with gas here people. New singer with great pipes! Nothing like the first album. This album shows the talent this band had and more was yet to come! This is perfect hard rock n roll! In my opinion one for your collection!
||Date: July 6, 2006 at 10:28|
|this cd is so great not a bad song on it. Its all straight balls in your fast sleaze rock.if you don't have it in your collection you should.

|I remember that this album made some big fuss back in the day when it was released...and it has its reasons...great songs all over!!! ...an european band that sounds a 100% and beyond american backed up with a great vocalist!!!...songs such as "Rock In The Western World","Screwed Blued 'N Tattooed","Stranger Than Paradise"(love it!!!),"Damned If We Do/Damned If We Don't"(love it too!!!),"This Time"(AORish solid ballad)& "Don't Talk About Roses"(rocks good)say it all...get this a.s.a.p.!!!.95/100

|Killer hard rock record. Sleeze Beez never achieved the fame they deserved, but kept making kick ass records throughout their career. Rock in the Western World, Stranger than Paradise, Damned if We Do, Damned if We Don't, This Time and Heroes Die Young are all notable songs, but the rest aren't bad either.

|This heavy sleaze rock may have never been a candidate for Grammy but I like the way they did it. Simple catchy well-played songs with a reference to bands like Motley Crue, Vain, D.A.D., Def Leppard or AC/DC. Nice stuff to listen. 85/100.
