|Thanks for all the kind words everyone. I'll keep making them FOREVER!!! About the question is Bittersweet touring, they haven't played together for over ten years. You can reach Stephen Shaw for comment through a link on the Retrospect Records website. It is under his solo disc posting. Great news, we will be releasing Boston superheros FLESH, SUPERZERO and OK PANIC over the next few months. Please check back at www.retrospectrecords.com for more information, and above all - thanks to everyone.

|This is the best thing I've heard in ages! I think I'll start bugging the crap out of Logan and Trunk to get this played on the Boneyard... and anyone else with XM, please do the same. This deserves some serious airplay!

|Bittersweet is an excellent band!!! Check out the review at Grande-Rock.com... And then get your CD from www.RetrospectRecords.com!!!! Hard rock music at its best!!!!!

|One of Metal Mayhem's up coming releases is by a band called Bitter Suite, different band all together but just as good!! That's right this band sound like Paradise's Light The Fire. It will sure be a huge hit in the Melodic Rock/Hard Rock circles. It's great to see the hard rock industry on its way back:-)
||Date: August 18, 2004 at 7:54|
|Although I still prefer the mighty Rock Candy release this is a great one and I must thank all who are responsible for it's release. Great commercial hard rock - and 2 CDs of it! Great songs everywhere and a great addition to any commercial hard rock loving fiend's collection. Awesome stuff!

|Don't see or hear what's special about this ! Just one of the hundreds of records made in this genre ! Straight ahead rock, and nothing more ! No hooks, little melody ! Just average, very average !
||Date: August 18, 2004 at 14:38|
|This stuff is very good, and far from average... I am glad Joe released this, as it's very much in the vein of Rack Candy, Raquel, and even hints of Child's Play... AWESOME release of cuts that never saw the light of day that should have had a shot over many bands that did. RECOMMENDED!

|Not bad at all.Good musicianship but not great.Definately 80's style approach.Production isn't bad either.Has that 80's style look to them as well.
||Date: November 13, 2005 at 11:01|
|I hope someone can re-issue on cd the Ez-Access material,maybe one of the finest commercial hard rock/glam bands ever heard before,really a shame they did only have a cassette in 1991 and an unreleased cd on 1994.If you don t believe me please let's go to listen to them on www.motorcityrock.com,you'll can download all their awesome material'.

|Very Good of course no confundais con Better Sweet Alley ambos son muy buenos y sobre E-Z Access como dice el Gran z4roxx forca Italia lo puedes escuchar en motorcityrock no perdais tiempo y date un salto por alla tendras muchas sorpresas.

|GOOD CD 81/100 LATE 80's HAIR METAL like a mix of DANGER DANGER/DAMN YANKEES/WARRANT/LITTERER The only low point is the sound quality of some old demos but the songs are great and the guitar players are good :P There is now a new cover&booklet much better thanks to RETROSPECT REC BUY IT
||Date: October 15, 2011 at 17:23|
|Oh i have to laugh so much....someone really has written Bittersweet is similar to Led Zeppelin and Foo Fighters....in which world do you leave....which Band have you heard???No nono....even i heard Part 1 about the Album and i think style is a little bit similar to Def Leppardīs"Euphoria" and Shyīs "Misspenth Youth".....good Melodic Hardrock Album but not the Kick ass one!!!
||Date: October 24, 2011 at 14:28|
|Heard Band one more time and i canīt believe that this Album is from 2004 cause Soundīs like 1988!!!Songs are great just similar to Bands like Poison,Warrant and Casanova!!!

|excellent commercial hard rock release from back in the day!it reminds me of Tyketto ,Danger Danger and Lillian Axe and suggest you buy it immediately!fantastic guitar work ,excellent songwriting and the right commercial approach is all over both cds.highlights are "bought&sold-love fade away","like the wind" and "down to the wire"!87-92 was the golden era of hard rock music and BITERSWEET justify this 100%
