|THIS BAND WAS ONE OF THE BEST OUT OF LA THE RECORD DEFINES THE BAND GREAT TUNES AN ALICE COOPER COVER-(18) ALL OUT METAL ASSAULT
||Date: October 13, 2001 at 14:19|
|A good band that would have evolved to a fantasic one. That is had they not met the fate of many. All around a well written record, with great musicianship. An ALICE COOPER cover, hell they didn't stop there they also Used Bob Ezrin! Pretty good for a band on "just an indipendent label". Did I forget to mention that the bass player & guitarists' brother are in Quiet Riot?! 8.0 K.O. on the SWINE SCALE!
||Date: October 24, 2001 at 14:05|
|At the time, I Thought their Mini-album couldn't be bettered...I was wrong. Careful playing and a majestic, almost un-metal like, atmosphere creates a trully unique album. I was 17 when this album came out and it totally defined my summer (1988).
||Date: December 13, 2001 at 12:42|
|Buy this if you find it. You won't be sorry. Great Great cd. One of the best.
||Date: January 2, 2002 at 15:38|
|Probably the best Hurricane CD money can buy. More hooks than a coat rack and more power than a fascist dictator. "I'm Onto You" and "Over the Edge" are now classics in the genre, but tracks like "We Are Strong" are still as fresh and combustible now as they were back in '88. Buy it now, crank it up and let it rock!

|Great musicianship on this cd. The video's bring back alot of memories....come to think of it, I still have them from Headbangers Ball on MTV. Yes....children...MTV did play videos once upon a time before real life drama's and style shows, and contests, drowned them out

|the best Hurricane release by far.Kelly Hansen is still one of the best voices around today(check out his work on Unruly Childs'"Waiting For The Sun" available at www.aorheaven.com ...."Over The Edge" ,"I'm On To You","We Are Strong" & "I'm Eighteen" Are stand out tracks
||Date: June 26, 2002 at 10:54|
|"Im on to you" is the only song I have heard from this band, but what an awesome song. The guitars, bass, and the drums compliment each other very well. And Kelly Hansen has awesome vocals and a great voice for rock music.
||Date: July 12, 2002 at 15:16|
|I remember when this first came out it was ridiculed as a bit of a joke because of the "famous brothers in other bands" connection. This album has really stood the test of time. "I'm on to you" is a classic. Listen to how hard Kelly pushes his voice in "18" - superb. Pity they recruited Doug Aldrich for the next album , didn't have the same kind of melodic riffing that Sarzo had.

|GRANDIOSO DISCO DE HARD ROCK MELODICO,KELLY HANSEN ES TODO UN MAESTRO SI NO ESCUCHA WE ARE STRONG
|Heavy Harmonies Volunteer|
|From: Blue Charvel
||Date: July 16, 2002 at 13:09|
|Sarzo did write better riffs which makes this album (I got it on vinyl, give me a break) definitely worth listening to. Real shame with Aldrich is that he's an AWESOME player, but the riffs just don't carry as much weight as Sarzo's.

|was there a different cover for the european release? a twister, brownish colours??? i think i have this, but i am highly confused. cheers, jens
||Date: September 6, 2002 at 1:30|
|Greatest Hurricane album. The melodies still make sense today. A very good singer and a clear guitar sound that creates a brilliant hard rock. Highly recommended.

|grandioso disco, pero yo me quedo con su primer disco, el extended play mas grande de la historia del hard rock!!!
|From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1
||Date: November 5, 2002 at 3:58|
|Yo mas que grandioso lo considero un disco ACEPTABLE de un Hard Rock que entra dentro de los parámetros establecidos,lo que si estoy de acuerdo es en el mejor tema We are Strong.
||Date: January 14, 2003 at 1:05|
|Definitely one of the best U.S bands. There no baD album from this magnificent hard rock act with on of the best singers ever. Best track is their clip "Over the Edge" and what a clip.Easily 10/10.Pure rock!!!
||Date: January 21, 2003 at 4:05|
|Another senseless casualty of the grunge movement. This album totally kicked ass. Too bad so many people missed out on this cd.
||Date: February 7, 2003 at 4:34|
|To all you guys, Just want to ask your opinion: which is better, this CD or Kingdom Come's In Your Face CD? I saw this one for $10. KC's CD is alot cheaper.
||Date: February 7, 2003 at 7:35|
|I response to Metalhead: I would go with this album over Kingdom Come. Almost all the songs on this one are great, while Kingdom Come has only a couple of good songs on it plus a lot of forgettable ones. IN YOUR FACE was a big letdown for me as I really enjoyed the first Kingdom Come album. $10 is a very reasonable price for Hurricane. This album is hard to come by.
|From: Blue Tequila
||Date: February 7, 2003 at 13:39|
|Metalhead - get 'em both, but get Hurrricane first since it's pretty hard to find. Then you can always pick up KC later. I think they're both good albums.
||Date: February 18, 2003 at 4:55|
|Thank you for your responses. I already bought the CD and it was good. Not exactly what I was expecting but not bad at all. Kelly Hansen was an amazing singer and Robert Sarzo can pull-off some surprises. Track No. 9 is very good.
||Date: April 9, 2003 at 7:43|
|Great Kickass second release. One of the better bands on the scene in the late eighties. Check out the funny Baby snakes song I think everyone could relate to it at some stage in their life. Rock you like a HURRICANE. Jay from Australia.

|Simply one of the best rock albums of the 80's. Their cover of I'm Eighteen is better than Alice's! The first 4 songs are just fantastic.
|From: Blue Tequila
||Date: May 20, 2003 at 14:01|
|This album definitely deserves a re-release. In fact with the technology out there to create low cost cd's and spread the word of it's availability there shouldn't be any album that is out of print if there is a demand for it. Or an even cheaper option for the record companies would be if they had websites where you could pay (reasonable $)to download a cd quality version of the oop album and cover art and make your own cd. You can't make money on a product that isn't available to the public.
||Date: June 29, 2003 at 5:43|
|Listening to "I'm onto You" right now...Great track! Nananananana I'm onto you!
||Date: June 29, 2003 at 9:23|
|I think Blue Tequilla has one heck of a point. Unfortunately, it would appear that record companies are not run by music fans. I know that Enigma records (the label on which this LP and Slave To The Thrill were released) went out of business, but I think the label distributed through Virgin records acrosss Europe anyway. Instead, there'll be some warehouse somewhere, where the master tapes to Over The Edge are lying and warping over the years...what a waste!!
||Date: September 5, 2003 at 15:03|
|I've been lucky enough to see Kelly Hansen sing live. Unique, well trained and powerful. Good thing there's ten songs here that showcase that voice. This is a stellar album. 9/10.
||Date: November 11, 2003 at 14:40|
|Now this Rocks!!! By far their best cd. Baby snakes still makes me laugh even after all these years

|This was one of my top favs as a kid. I love this band. Kelly hansen has a fuckin awesome voice as cool as david coverdales. Awesome album cover.Over the edge is a rock anthem, great alice cooper cover and you have to love a band with a name like that!
|From: Big Papa K
||Date: June 27, 2004 at 0:05|
|A band that should have had more success, but probably didn't due to lack of an image. "Over The Edge" is a great start to the album, and I like that they follow it up with a bluesy version of "I'm Eighteen". The tracks "We Are Strong" and "I'm On To You" are good pop metal tracks. The final track is a waste though. 8/10
|From: K.K. Poland

|NA NA NANANA NA I'M ON TO YOU!! fantastic song! great, We Are Strong have a amazing chorus, great album. zajebisty album, coœ wspania³ego, I'm On To You wyrywa mi jaja i wsadza w imad³o, boskie
|From: TIM (2)
||Date: July 9, 2004 at 4:42|
|This was their strongest and most commercial release. It almost sounds like a slightly harder version of the Winger debut at times ("I'm Onto You" and "We Are Strong" in particular). I think this one loses it's way towards the end a little, but is very strong at the beginning. Hansen never sounded better than on this, is a very powerful performance, but this was the only time in his career he had decent material to work with. Excellent. 8/10.
||Date: July 9, 2004 at 5:04|
|I hate to disagree with the crowd, but I was rather disappointed with this. I had heard this was Hurricane's best album, but I actually prefer Slave to the Thrill. Tracks 3 and 4 are great, but the rest is average at best. The cover of Eighteen is unnecessary and the final track is a waste of space.
||Date: July 9, 2004 at 5:06|
|Oops! Forgot one thing. The cover art is some of the worst I've ever seen. What a mess. How about some color?
||Date: July 9, 2004 at 7:37|
|Hey Desslar if you can track down the japanese EP of songs on here-it is well worth investing. I have always thought Hurricane were a bit hit and miss but the EP is awesome!!
||Date: July 10, 2004 at 3:11|
|Thanks for the tip. I have seen that CD before, but didn't know who they were at the time so I didn't get it. I'll have to investigate.
|From: Rick Thunder
||Date: July 13, 2004 at 7:35|
|In this album there's one of the best songs I've heard in my life, Over the edge is amazing you've got to listen it, ok the others songs are very good too, and there's no one saying something about this song
||Date: July 15, 2004 at 22:13|
|Probably their most consistent album to date. This rocks from beginning to end. "I'm On To You", "I'm Eighteen", "Messin' With A Hurricane" absolutely rock. The real crown jewel is "Over The Edge". What a chorus. Highly recommended.
||Date: August 13, 2004 at 21:31|
|This band was one of the club kings in the early to mid 80's... and if it wasn't for shitty promotion they could have been a bigtime outfit... swept aside for the likes of Ratt and Dokken... Shame!
||Date: January 25, 2005 at 0:27|
|Takes more than four, five or even six listens before you get it(at least me), Heavy, strong and personally i think misses a tiny bit of melodies wich could have combined with the amazing guitars on it. I point "Spark in My Heart" as a highlight but a great heart-breaking ballad is missing here by my point of view. Amazing added cd in your collection don't get me wrong but do not expect any compromises here, tough from start to finish; the most of their works.
||Date: January 29, 2005 at 0:03|
|I recently bought a used copy of this cassette for really cheap, mostly just for the song "I'm Onto You," and I was utterly blown away! Why these guys weren't AT LEAST as big as the likes of Dokken is completely beyond me. Just all-around great musicianship, and Kelly Hansen in particular has an incredibly powerful, yet very melodic voice. All of the tracks kick ass, but I was especially impressed with "Messin' with a Hurricane" and "We Are Strong." Definitely buy this album!!
||Date: January 29, 2005 at 0:10|
|Oh, by the way, no pun intended when I said I was "utterly blown away" by Hurricane! (sorry, that was cheesy as hell...). Anyway, does anyone know what these guys have been up to lately? I know only Hansen and Schellen played on the Liquifury album, but since then, I haven't heard a thing about any of 'em...
||Date: February 11, 2005 at 8:02|
|I have to agree wuth DESSLAR on this one.I think this is by far their worst recording ,except for a couple of tracks on this one i can`t even listen to it .I expected so much more after the ep came out, but at least they made up for it on their next release.Even their 2001 release LIQUIFURY is more listenable than this is
||Date: February 12, 2005 at 22:26|
|One feels as though they might have f*cked up their chance at slight stardom here, but you can't be sure. Because although there are many weak tracks here, 'Over the edge' is a killer melodic hard rocker and 'I'm onto you' is awesome, just what the radio wanted. 'Messin' with a hurricane' is okay, as is 'We are strong', and even 'Give me an inch'... sort of. But to be honest, I'd have expected a lot better with the first 2 tracks I noted. Pretty poor album overall.
||Date: February 23, 2005 at 23:40|
|This one was great, too bad they never got any airplay. I here them more today on sirius radio than I ever did back in the day. They messed up their chances when the next album wasn't as good. The last song with the guy trying to get a date is hilarious, very original.

|My name speacks for itself and it says: MASTERPIECE.
||Date: January 10, 2006 at 8:45|
|Got mine today on eBay for 46$. Can't wait to receive it ! Now my Hurricane CD collection is nearly complete, but the 1985 EP is so hard to find....
||Date: January 25, 2006 at 22:03|
|One of the best hard rock bands from the 80's. I love Kelly Hansen's vocals and got almost everything he's ever done. I'm having a helluva time finding their Take What You Want EP. "Over the Edge" and "I'm on to You" are classic rockers.
||Date: November 17, 2006 at 18:12|
|INCREDIBLE RECORD!!!I would say that the genre here is CLASS METAL, most of the songs sound that way,but songwriting is very various too!!!8 of the 10 songs are PERFECT, bu the 2 I don't like much are track 8 and 10..BABY SNAKES has no sense, what a waste of time, they should have put a huge ballad at the end of the record and it would have been perfect!!!..also GIVE ME AN INCH is strange, sounds like pop-metal and has nothing to do with the rest of the album!!!...however it's a MASTERPIECE!!!!
||Date: November 17, 2006 at 18:33|
|henrykane te sei italiano vero??...ho letto dei tuoi commenti sul forum di EUTK.NET ....questo disco è un capolavoro assoluto, concordo con te!!!...io non digerisco bene GIVE ME AN INCH e BABY SNAKES ma le altre 8 sono canzoni incredibili!!!.peccato che nel secondo disco, anche se è cmq ottimo, abbandonano un pò il class metal per dedicarsi ad un hard rock un pò più convenzionale che andava di moda all'epoca....sinceramente nel 90 c'erano gruppi che facevano meglio di SLAVE TO THE THRILL secondo
||Date: November 17, 2006 at 18:36|
|....la mia opinione, ma OVER THE EDGE è ai massimi livelli del class metal!!!...per eventuali contatti la mia mail è firstname.lastname@example.org...anzi se hai da vendermi un originale del CD a un prezzo ragionevole sarebbe molto gradito!!...
||Date: November 24, 2006 at 2:30|
|This album did not create any energy or fist pumping to me like the EP or Slave to the Thrill. I wore out the EP and saw them live with Stryper on that tour and it was fantastic. This album was extremely subpar in songwriting and in Sarzo's abilities. They won me back over with Slave.
||Date: November 26, 2006 at 11:17|
|Totally agree with RockMan10,except their best song(here)”We are strong”the rest is forgettable and very average.It’s really strange that the italian friend prefers this one than the others 2,but these are the tastes,I respect man!!!Ahahaha scusa se non scrivo mai in italiano ma mi vergogno di esserlo ahahahaha!!
||Date: November 30, 2006 at 17:40|
|z4roxx io preferisco questo disco a "Slave to the thrill" perchè questo è un capolavoro assoluto di class metal, l'altro è un buon disco di hard rock ma non mi impressiona per niente...it's my opinion, just a point of view my compatriot!!!!....le canzoni belle sono tante, te hai citato solo "We are strong" che è forse la più "catchy" tra le canzoni del disco (si sentono delle influenze dei Bon Jovi), ma di capolavori ce ne sono diversi, "Over the edge" è la canzone hard rock PERFETTA x me....
||Date: November 30, 2006 at 17:49|
|...anche "Spark in my heart" e "Shout" sono fantastiche, l'unica cosa che manca è solamente una ballatona finale al posto di quel pezzo con le telefonate che avrebbe reso questo disco da 10 e lode...z4roxx da quello che leggo credo che i tuoi gusti siano orientati più sullo street/sleaze/melodic hard rock, forse è il genere in questione (class metal) che non fa per te no??...cmq ho visto che sei un collezionista e se ti va di scambiarci opionioni o cd la mia mail è email@example.com...ciao!!
||Date: December 6, 2006 at 12:57|
|No no guarda,io amo tutto,dal pop/aor al grind core figurati!!!il fatto è che quando trovo un cd fiacco,privo di spunti o cmq banale lo vendo a meno che non si parli di grandi gruppi come Hurricane dove sia l’ep che”Slave..”mi piacciono,allora tengo anche un cd uscito meno bene diciamo.Per me questo cd vale davvero poco ma proverò a risentirlo!Ho cd da scambiare,ti scrivo nei prox giorni.ciao!
||Date: December 6, 2006 at 13:05|
|L ho risentitourtroppo rimango della mia idea,ovvero:una super hit,2/3 grandi pezzi,il resto son fillers ed un paio pure dei peggiori mai sentiti.Se avessero fatto un 2’ep con questi pezzi sarebbe stato un mini favoloso!Se scrivessi in italiano potrei spiegare meglio ogni concetto di ogni singolo cd ma preferisco usare il mio rudimentale e ridicolo inglese almeno faccio pratica ahahahah!!!
||Date: December 21, 2006 at 11:21|
|anch'io l'ho risentito, avevo una copia e mi sono comprato l'originale anche se un pò costoso, vuoi mettere la soddisfazione che ti dà l'originale?? cmq anch'io confermo la mia opinione...CAPOLAVORO ASSOLUTO!!!...questo disco ha dei momenti irripetibili che mi riportano indietro nel tempo nei grandi anni '80!!...

||Date: May 18, 2007 at 5:07|
|I bought this one for big bucks because I wanted some new 80's stuff. A few songs here for pop metal/rock fans like me but not a great album overall. The 80's vibe is here but it could have been heavier and most of the song writing is not catchy. Best tracks 1 and 3.
||Date: November 8, 2007 at 21:20|
|otro albun regular con temas del mismo entorno Metal rock'n'Roll eh aqui temas como "Missin' With A Hurricane", "I'm On To You", "We Are Strong" y toda la potencia en "Spark In The Heart" lo mejor de este decente album...
||Date: May 30, 2008 at 13:48|
|Highlights for me are 1, 3, 4, 6, 7. Didn't really care too much for the rest. Worth getting though if you liek 80's Glam Rock. Maybe it's just me but I didn't like the sound on this one too much. Rythm guitars are too toned down and are in the backround and they are lacking balls. Give it 80/100 since it has some cool tunes, cool cover, adn was released in a cool year 1988.
||Date: May 30, 2008 at 15:06|
|This is one that I really wanted to like but couldn't. I played it for hours on end trying to find that one "hook" that would have me playing it for months on end. It never happend and I just ended up saying it was not for me and started jammin' the House of Lords and Bullet Boys debuts. I was very disappointed in this but boy did they redeem themselves with Slave To The Thrill. 70/100
|From: rick kerch vzla
||Date: February 23, 2011 at 19:45|
|Good album(it could have been better IMHO)..."Over The Edge","I'm Onto You"(catchy..sort of a "hit" of the band),"Messin' With A Hurricane" ..."We Are Strong","Spark In My Heart" & "Baby Snakes" my favorites without any doubt..specially the last one which is a fantastic instrumental song...with that voice of "Jeff" on the phone trying 2 get his girl ...88/100 for my taste...
||Date: August 29, 2011 at 17:38|
|Overall a decent album but just slightly less catchy than Slave to the Thrill. Over The Edge, I'm Eighteen, I'm On To You, Spark in my Heart and Insane are stand out tracks for me.
