Got this cd and it is great. The best they have put out.

From: Harvey Date: October 24, 2001 at 13:59
Totally overlooked mini-album masterpiece by one of the best melodic rock groups of the 80's LA scene.Check out Kelly Hansen's vocals... second to none

From: Dragonfly Date: December 13, 2001 at 12:40
A great release from a great group. All of their stuff is great, but they were over looked.

From: WidoMakr Date: January 18, 2002 at 17:08
To all...if u want to hear what a true lead singer should sound like check out Hurricane...almost every track is beyond good close to excellent...The girls are out tonight is a top 10 song in my list of best ever....If u like this sound try a band named Lion...sound alot alike...quote the WidoMakr....never more

From: GLAMDUDE Date: February 26, 2002 at 18:20
HURRICANE is one of the best bands of the 80's and early 90's. EVERY album put out is amazing, I absolutel love Kelly's vocals and Sarzo/Aldrich's guitars, very catchy. The new album Liquifury released in 2001 is nothing to look past either. They haven't missed a beat. Great band, THEY SHOULD TOUR WITH POISON THIS SUMMER!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!

From: graham Date: April 7, 2002 at 17:35
such a great band.im from the uk and never saw them live (starved over here).how bout a uk tour ie newcastle. wey aye man!

From: TIM Date: May 6, 2002 at 23:52
The music doesn't really draw me on this one. There are a few tunes which I find okay.

From: TheRipper Date: May 21, 2002 at 19:43
YaddaYaddaYadda, their best release period. While I love Hurricane, and I think anything this group has done is at least good, this is their truly unbelievable mark on an era. Unforgettable songs, Great Vocals, Just Awesome. I think that puts it best. Get it all costs!!!

From: dreamtheater3 Date: September 3, 2002 at 23:27
This is absolutely the best album to come out of the 80's. Kelly Hansen's vocals are incredible. Very tight rhythms. Their best by far!

From: Todd Date: February 20, 2003 at 1:01
Pure 80's. Tony and Kelly are great guys. The Motor City will always welcome them. 'Over The Edge' had two of the coolest 80's hard rock videos............

From: BERNARDITO Date: March 15, 2003 at 23:39
This is THE BEST extended play in hard rock history!!!rating 10/10 whithout exaggeration!!!

From: MButt Date: March 15, 2003 at 23:42
Loved it!! found this for a pretty good price a few years back, glad it did!

From: Jayglam Date: April 9, 2003 at 7:39
The best of Hurricane even if it was only an ep. Take me in your arms rocks, Girls are out tonight is a classic, Hurricane and It's only Heaven - what a ballad. All there other releases are great but they will never come close to this. Jay is one of the better, tighter and original drummers in Hard rock Plus he also has a cool name. Jay from Australia.

From: Scandinavia Date: June 29, 2003 at 5:27
Some decent tracks here. At some points ahead of their time due to their flair for incorporating pop melodies into their playing. Keeping in mind that we're talking 1985...Production could've been better but still this album stands strong.

From: razor2467 Date: August 11, 2003 at 9:03
This ep is a pretty strong set of songs even now...has some cheesy lyrics in a few spots, but hey, it was 1985!! Unfortunately I still have to listen to my LP of it, the cd is a bit pricey for my taste

From: Pam L. Date: October 27, 2003 at 3:49
I've always liked this band. I remeber buying this in '87 and it KICKS ASS! Rock and roll forever!

From: TheRipper Date: January 27, 2004 at 5:38
Probably my favorite Hurricane release, closely followed by 'Over The Edge' ('Slave' is awesome too, everything these guys touched was of great quality). But for one reason or another I feel that every song on this one comes alive. All tracks are shredders with great hooks and choruses. 'Hot and Heavy', the title track, 'Hurricane', etc. are all killer/Heavy anthems on this lost classic that was really ahead of its time IMHO. Wish it were 1985 and this was just released; one can dream... a 10!!!

From: dave Date: April 28, 2004 at 20:03
great record a must own for any hurricane fan! Take me in your arms, hurricane and it's only heaven are the best songs here. Also great album cover. that's a thing with this band they always have cool covers.

From: ChrisSlade Date: August 16, 2004 at 14:45
Saw them with Cavazo and Aldrich live. Must say the chemistry of the band was gone with Aldrich. Their first two albums are masterpieces!

From: Geoff Date: September 5, 2004 at 2:02
For me, this is the most consistent release Hurricane ever put out, and that's from a big fan of the band. This is just good, hard hitting melodic / commercial hard rock. 'Take me in your arms' is awesome, as is 'Take what you want', 'Hurricane' is a killer melodic hard rocker and one of their best songs ever, and overall it's a good solid release. Still fillers, but the ratio of good to filler is better here than any other Hurricane CD.

From: ed Date: November 1, 2004 at 11:53
I heard it and it's great!!! I love the riffs on 'Take Me In Your Arms' and 'Hurricane'. But the whole disc is so good!!

From: Rycheage Date: November 5, 2004 at 18:38
I agree with the above comments about this being their most consistent release. 'Take Me In Your Arms', 'Hurricane' and 'Take What You Want' are awesome tracks. Great CD much in the line of the great hair metal albums of the time. Should've been bigger, but alas, that's the way the cookie crumbles.

From: ArnoldLancelot Date: January 25, 2005 at 0:34
Collector's item as every one knows. Tough and proud but with enough choruses and melodies to keep it well balanced, good production and amazing musicianship. Kelly Hansen breath-taking on every song and by the way that will continue on every record of them!!! If you can afford it don't miss it(I mean on cd)

From: Mudhawk Date: September 15, 2005 at 11:53
Boing!! The Cover of this CD captures the essence of this record perfectly. It's Hot, its Sleazy, its something you will not forget. Take Me in Your Arms has got to be in the top 10 of metal songs. The shortness of the record (i know, ep) only lets you hear the songs over and over much faster.

From: Missing the 70's Date: December 8, 2005 at 13:52
Great debut

From: RockMan10 Date: November 24, 2006 at 2:38
Saw them in concert with Stryper around '85. This set was tremendous! Not a bad point at all. Didn't think this band was capable of a bad disc until Over the Edge.

From: sanxdowntherainbow Date: March 16, 2007 at 18:39

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 8, 2007 at 16:30
A bonus track of 1:20?,C'omon give me a break!.This album is quite good but to pay almost 70$?,too much i think.I bought it myself in vynil the time it was release and that's enough.What a ripp off!.

From: shark attack Date: July 15, 2007 at 13:11
Just got this and I got to be honest its a pleasant surprise.Songs are harder hitting than the next 2 releases and I can really hear a Randy Rhoads influence in Sarzo`s guitar playing.Killer songs are opener `take me in your arms` and `hurricane` but the others are excellent too.Decent production for 1985 as well.Overall an impressive debut and certainly a benchmark release for the new generation of hair metal bands that were about to hit the sunset strip. 8/10

From: Fat Freddy Date: August 8, 2007 at 17:07
This one seems to be the Holy Grail for a lot of collectors. I happened to have one land in my lap a few days back and even tho I never listened to Hurricane much back in the day I have to say that I prefer this one over the too-slick-for-my-tastes OVER THE EDGE (which has its moments, but is way too polished IMHO). On TAKE WHAT YOU WANT Hurricane were a little rawer, a little hungrier, and a little sleazier, and that's the way I like'em.

From: wrathchild Date: March 3, 2008 at 20:19
Great debut!!Easily a 8/10.This is their heaviest release.It is like a hurricane comin'!!!!!!!

From: metalhead4life Date: May 30, 2008 at 13:43
If you like 80's Glam Metal then you have to get this CD - must own for your collection!! I agree with what Fat Freddy said.

From: RockMan10 Date: May 30, 2008 at 15:03
For an EP, this was absolutly terrific. I remember seeing Hurricane with Stryper around '86. It was a great show. If you are new to Hurricane, start here and go directly to Slave to the Thrill. Liquifury was good too but not the same direction Hurricane started out in '85. This is very good hard rock. 82/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 18, 2011 at 21:19
Whatever happened to my recent comment here(it vanished),well here i go again...no probs ...a good debut Ep by Hurricane(i own this on vinyl)..."Take Me In Your Arms","The Girls Are Out Tonight"(great rocking track),"Take What You Want"(killer),"Hurricane"(catchy chorus)& "Hot And Heavy"(rocks good)are songs that will put a smile in your face surely...about the the "bonus track"...what was the point for that???...90/100

From: 123charpenay Date: December 16, 2011 at 10:11
excellent debut album.very great hard u s.good songs good production good singer.i recommand the reissue with 3 songs (the best) of over the edge.

From: titothetitan Date: November 9, 2017 at 13:31
Very average album and a poor production. The songs are too repetitive, the singer just repeats the title throughout the whole song. 'It's Only Heaven' is very nice, though.
