Their last and most professional album! Top production from Tommy Hansen and a more streetwise hardrock sound than on previous releases...The 2 first tracks are worth the album alone but it's all good material. Powerful melodies carried by the guitars. The vocals are too raw in my opinion though...Should be in your collection along with "Strike Back" from 86

From: Blue Tequila Date: November 3, 2003 at 11:19
I just can't get into this one. Very polished, very professional, but now the vocals don't fit the songs, they almost need a Klaus Meine type singer and the raw gravelly voice of Burtz seems out of place. It's a good album and the first 2 tracks are definitely the standouts. "Hard Breaks" is my fav. But I prefer Strike Back easily over this.

'the deeper the night' must be one of my alltime ballads.. even the funny accent doesn't bother me.

From: Ray Date: November 26, 2003 at 1:19
Good CD and good 80's hard rock songs with some bite. The songs are unique and catchy. The only bad thing about this CD is unfortunately the drums. Just too damn plain and simple the whole way through. There is not one song where the drummer isn't doing a generic rock beat with the same timing the whole way through...............kinda annoying. Doesn't even do any rolls or fills either. Good disc to add to your collection though for fans of 80's hard rock.

This CD kicks ass buy it!

From: Geoff Date: September 19, 2004 at 23:10
Another very good, and very consistent hard rock CD. The ballad here, 'The deeper the night' has been done a million times before, but is still quite good and enjoyable. Another good solid CD.

From: Kim HP Date: December 26, 2004 at 16:17
Very good german hard rock album, although the vocals could've been better. "Rely on Rock", "(I'll Be) Hunter or Hunted" and the title track are great, and I also quite enjoy the ballad "The Deeper the Night".

From: StarCity Rocker Date: March 9, 2005 at 10:03
Another superb release from one of the best German metal bands of the 80s. Pell continues to impress with monster riffs and the songs are consistent and solid all the way through. "The Deeper The Night" is probably the weakest song on here (nowhere near as good as "Waiting For A Star" from STRIKE BACK) but certainly worth a listen as far as ballads go. There are some killer tracks on this one (title track, "Rely On Rock," and "Stand Tall") and definitely worth the $$ if you liked STRIKE BACK.

For me very good release from super german metal bands of the 80s.For me best pieces is "CRIMINAL"(with super melodic guitar solo from Axel Rudi Pell) and "UNDERCOVER ANIMAL".I bet 10 from 10!!Good buy....bye Jerry

ME GUUSTAAA!!!! esta banda si ke rompe, este album es la hostia! su cantante tiene garra! lo ke mas impressiona es sin duda el cantante, aki hay temazos pa rodar en el coche toda la noche! pero cuidado, este cd esta muy caliente, un sonido asi puede pegar fuego a los altavoces! estan avisados!

From: lalorock Date: December 4, 2006 at 19:33
Que temazos, y con el gran Axel rudi pell antes de ir de solista, hard rock, heavy metal del bueno que te impacta, que te engancha, que no te deja respiro con esas guitarras asesinas y esa voz demoledora de Peter Burtz, desde ese comienzo Hunter or hunted te quedas prendado de tu equipo,Undercover Animal todo un himno de metal, Stand tall otro temazo con unos coros matadores a lo Accept, imprescindible para cualquier fan del verdadero hard rock, heavy metal clįsico.
