File next to Rough Cutt's "Wants You" and King Kobra's "Thrill..." as casualities of twisted pop metal expectations circa 1985. "Below.." is a big disappointment compared to the raw and nasty "In Your Face". Structures are slow and confused, seemingly trying for metal-AOR middle ground. "Can't Let Go" is a curious ditty that sticks in your head. Sinsel's vocals are less road worn and more alcohol stuppored. Metal Mayhem's re-issue is worth the bucks, if not for just the novelty.

Not bad this one, some unique hardrock here, difficult to say how it exactly sounds, but it's original. Not that it is top stuff, far from it, but a band with an original style has my admiration. There are already enough clones in the musicworld !

Would have been a great release if not for the weak production and a couple of lame tracks. Still, it is a good album. The band had a totally glam look during this era, but the music and powerhouse vocals made this a pretty heavy affair. Good album, but it should have been better considering the talent involved.

I'm gonna have to dig this out. I hadn't really listened to it much after the first couple weeks I got it, last spring. GOddamn, does this Brad Sinsel think he's Ronnie James Munchkin or what? He tries soooo hard to sound "European" or "serious power-metal," by bearing down hard on every single consonant in every word, like he's singing so you can read his lips with the sound off or something. Musically, nothing struck me as spectacular, and as usual, I could've done without the keys. Need to gi

Pffffft. Need to give this another spin soon though, juuuuuust to make sure.

From: TKO Date: August 27, 2003 at 23:25
Seventeen, Rock n Roll remains and Below the belt I thought were standouts. Ronnie James Dio comparison?....you need to get your ears cleared. Sinsel was one of the best out there. One of the coolest rock voices I've ever heard.

From: Horst Date: February 9, 2005 at 10:32
Excellent album - although not as GREAT as the other TKO Gems Let it Roll and IN YOUR FACE. Brad Sinsel is GOD - too bad I never had the chance to see him live. Seattle Rules!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: January 14, 2006 at 9:16
Good Hard Rock album, a diferencia del anterior que IMO es mejor tambien y que es puro Hard Rock este es cruzado con el AOR en temas me quedo con la 1, 7/10.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: January 11, 2009 at 16:02
Great song "Seventeen"

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 10, 2011 at 21:57
I enjoyed a lot this album by TKO!!! ...as Rafo Phoenix said above,a mix of Hard Rock tracks with some others AOR oriented..."Rock 'N' Roll Remains","Below The Belt"(AORish),"Beware The Hunter","Seventeen","Chains Don't Change","Sticks N' Stones" & "One Of The Boys"(AORish and probably the best track IMHO) are my faves...87/100
