These guys are really glammy, & excellent music. standout tracks are Be My Addiction, Rock This Wasteland, Hell's Door, & Unchain my heart. Very tough to find, but worth the search.

From: PauloFernandes Date: September 29, 2003 at 12:13
Awesome cd, can't stop listening to this one - the music can be described as glammy altough there's some AOR touches - one of those rare cds where there isn't a filler to be found - yep, that good. Worth the search is an understatement, get this one on the top positions of your wantlist

From: rettfisher Date: November 28, 2003 at 15:17
these guys are the best band ever. i worship the hard rock ground they rock on. i know i'm a man and i'm not gay but i would probably sex up each and every guy in this band...what rock gods they truly are. take me please RAM take me hard and fast.

From: ERIK Date: May 14, 2004 at 12:09
Listen to the song "Atomic Dog". It's very similar to Snoop Doggy Dog's anthem. This album was released in 1992, and Snoop's was released November 23 1993 according to his web site...

From: Studboy Date: June 19, 2004 at 0:35
This is just my opinion but don't waste your money on this one, really bad pop metal. Thats about it!

From: tomcat Date: August 12, 2004 at 17:06
sorry but the remake of the song 'tears of a clown ' is awfull, i prefer the enuff z'nuff version.. but the song 'devil in white' makes things up for that..

From: Lightningstrike Date: January 3, 2005 at 15:52
This is in response to Tomcat's comment about "tears of a clown." The Enuff Z'Nuff song is "KISS THE CLOWN." They are two different titles...BTW, Ram rocks hard!!!!!!!!!!!

Enuff Z'nuff ALSO did a version of Tears of a Clown on their CD entitled "1985".

From: Lightningstrike Date: January 14, 2005 at 14:44
Thanks for the update Whiplash1972. That's one of the only EN'Z cds I have not bought yet...I'll check it out! Thanks

Been A While Since I Last Seen This Disc On Ebay..Went 4 A Bit If I Can Remember...Awesome Release By RAM...P.S..I Also Feel That These Guys Are More Glam..Than Melodic Hard Rock Which Is Stated Above...Cheerz

From: Ice CreamGirlz Date: January 1, 2006 at 13:09
I liked this one. My favorite song has to be number 2. Haven't seen this on ebay at all....still hoping. Good cd to play in the car.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 18, 2007 at 13:17
Decent Melodic Hard Rock/Glam album but aggg this kind of voice is unpleasant, y es la verdad solo un decente album con el tipo de cantantes con voz desagradable y empalagosa esta es una de las razones por la que el Glam queda relegado a un nivel inferior de estilos como el AOR o Rock Melodico ya que los cantantes de estos estilos son de mayor gerarquia y aparte del estilo y letras que tienen, ahora hay que rescatar unos temas 7-8-9 cortes de muy muy buen nivel y si MHR el resto Glam soso 6/10

From: Delbert Date: January 1, 2010 at 20:21
Excellent quality AOR/Melodic rock filled with awesome melodies, harmonies and hooks to go fishing with. One of my favorite discs. There are some sleaze/glam elements heard in the band's sound, but the melodies shine through.

Hello 80's Melodic Music Lovers!! Thank you everyone for the (mostly) flattering comments you have taken your unsolicited time out for, & our disc you spent your hard earned money on....RELEASE THE BEAST! I just want to say making & showcasing this disc back in the late 80's & 90's, were some of the best memories we'll ever have. We were an East Coast band that came a little too late on the scene. I can still remember shopping for gigs in Atlanta & hearing 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' for the first time in 91 or 92 & thinking...what is this crap? Sadly, the scene really did need to change, especially with the amount of cheese that made its way to our eyes & ears in its final days. Our stuff came from deep within & meant a lot to us. We wrote & played w/heart, & we'd do it all over again & not change a thing! We were lucky enough to play & tour with greats like Cheap Trick, Ratt, Slaughter, Warrant, Vince Neil, Firehouse & we'll always be proud!! Keep Rock Alive & Thanks Again! J.Nitro

Great album!!!..solid,enjoyable!!!...voice perfect 4 these kinds of songs..."One Shot" is a killer starter,excellent,"Be My Addiction" is a track ala Def Leppard,"Devil In White" & "Lost In Love" are highlights,"Never Gonna Leave You" has some AOR vibe along with "Was It Love","Release The Beast" is a 100% ala Ugly Kid Joe & "Unchain My Heart" ends the album as a very pleasant semi acoustic ballad...don't think twice,listen to it!!!.91/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 18, 2010 at 21:54
By the way,it is very nice to have J Nitro commenting on an album that was part of his life as he was a member of the band...cheers mate!!!
