It's hard to put a finger on what these guys sound like....I hear some Dangerous Toys, a (very)little bit of Def Leppard maybe, early Skid Row......but IMO, they definitely rock!!!! Favorite songs are 'Bow To Your Master', 'Stark Raving Mad' and 'The One That Makes You Crazy'.

From: ROB GARCIA Date: February 10, 2004 at 13:07
oh no! just what we needed; another skid row wannabes.listen to the first song and dont bother listening to the rest of the album cause it all sounds the same to me.yeah sure there are a lot of riffs in this album and the guy can surely play but there is no substance in the music and this is where this band fails to deliver big time.sorry but not for me.

From: Rick Date: February 10, 2004 at 13:20
Hate to disagree, but what the heck. I personally think this is one of the best cd's to come out in years. How many bands out there still make this brand of music? Not many. This cd rocks from beginning to end with great hooks and great musicianship. If you're into a Skid Row meets Bulletboys type band, check these guys out.

From: AOR freaky Date: February 12, 2004 at 5:36
Sorry MJ (Marla), Rick and others, this is typical brainless stuff, as was many times the case with eighties hair and straigh ahead bands. Rockin, yeah, maybe. Songs ? No ! Nuff said !

From: Rick Date: February 12, 2004 at 8:05
Freaky, the difference is that this is a current release, not from the eighties. It may not be the best cd ever, BUT, it came out in recent years. The fact that groups are still making this style of music is awesome. There aren't many bands, with an eighties sound, that are still putting out cd's today. That fact alone, makes this release that much better. Maybe if they would have added some keyboards for you, this wouldn't have been so "brainless".

A mixed bag of influences here,as I hear some Slaughter,Bulletboys (obviously with Jason Hook present),& some Skid Row. I really enjoy this disc, with "The One That Makes You Crazy","Bow To Your Master", "Morphine" (all rockers) and the ballad "Temptation" being the real stand-outs here. "Bow To Your Master" is kickass rocker all the way and rocks in the same manner as Skid Row, Pyn Siren, or even the new McQueen Street - II release!GREAT song!

From: Dan Friml Date: March 25, 2004 at 9:39
Fantastic album!! BulletBoys influenced music, with great guitar work and killer vocals! I just downloaded it as mp3s, but I have to go and buy the CD!!!

Hi Dan I have a copy for sale. I was going to stick it on ebay. If interested let me know.

From: Dan Friml Date: March 26, 2004 at 8:46
Hey Rockhead! I already got this one from a friend. Anyways thanks for the offer! I appreciate it!!!!!

This cd rocks!! But as far as Whiplash1972's Pyn Siren, Skid Row comparisons, I'd have to disagree. Don't get me wrong this cd rocks from start to finish but those two groups have more attitude. If you want the next best thing to Skid Row then pick up PYN SIREN. If you want to rock for a hour orso then this cd will do just fine.

Read my entire review...I compared the SONG "Bow to Your Master" to something you'd expect from Skid, Pyn, or McQueen St.....not the entire CD. Overall, Monkeyhead is lighter than those bands, BUT that particular song is something that you could DEFINITELY imagine being done by one of those bands.

From: Geoff Date: January 9, 2005 at 0:21
These guys have themselves a pretty decent fanbase, I believe, but I must admit that it sort of passed me by. A bigger fan of the bands mentioned in the posts above there is not - well, maybe, but I like all of those excellent 80's bands listed, but don't really see too much of any of them on this CD. This is well played hard rock with a couple of cool songs, but IMO the 80's was built on the big hook-laden choruses... which I do not find here. Decent hard rock album, but not a fave of mine...

From: headbanger4life Date: October 31, 2005 at 2:05
This one definately reminds of Skid Row (first two albums). I loved it. Great songs and a great vocalist. Plus the Japanese version has 2 bonus tracks.

From: z4roxx Date: November 2, 2005 at 12:05
Anyone have a finnish band called Monkey House?

From: glamjunkie Date: January 29, 2006 at 21:44
This is a great album. Not sure what to expect from the cover, but once I put this cd on I took an immediate liking to it. Not quite sleaze - not quite hair metal.... somewhere in between. By far the best out of a batch of 'cheapies' acquired recently.

From: GlamSlam Date: August 24, 2009 at 1:23
I hear much of Skid Row which aint bad thing at all. First song rocks so hard that oh my god, rest songs are just good imo good hard rock album with lots of good hooks n riffs n great voice.

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 13, 2011 at 8:22
They say if you put a bunch of monkeys in a room full of typewriters and gave them enough time, they would eventually create a literary masterpiece simply by accident. Well, if you put a bunch of monkeys in a room full of hard rock influences and let them cobble from them, they would eventually grab Bulletboys, Skid Row, Pyn Siren, and Dangerous Toys and mix them all together to form this band.

From: rallen399 Date: August 28, 2011 at 20:44
Powerful blues influenced riffs interlaced w/ a emotional slide guitar and a singer who could pass for Kip Winger or Seb. Bach and you have an almost perfect 80's style hard rock record in Monkeyhead.They sound like a combination of Skid Row,LynchMob and Winger.If this came out in 1987-8 Monkeyhead would be just as recognizable a name as those previously mentioned.That being said its not without its draw backs mainly the 2 (power ballads?)they should stick to the heavier stuff.11 songs 9 are as good as it gets for this style of hard rock and 2 lousy ballads, all in all highly recommended 95/100.

From: rallen399 Date: August 29, 2011 at 23:04
I've got to correct myself here All My Friends In Heaven is a great power ballad Temptation & Only You are the 2 songs that are sub-par.

From: hair metal again Date: November 22, 2012 at 9:24
commercial hard rock masterpiece by MONKEYHEAD released in a time when almost noone plays like this!Beau Hill s presence is a guarantee of quality stuff and the band delivers 100%!the vocals are perfect and the guitar work astonishing and the songs are strong and commercial!the musicianship is quite complicated and the hooks need a few spins to be revealed!i d say that they remind me of SOUTHGANG and this one is among the best hard rock releases of the 00s!well done boyz and long live hard rock music!

B-Version from Slaughter.....boring melodic HR without power
