From: Glam Rokker Date: April 4, 2001 at 10:15
A great hard rockin' CD from beginning to end and a definate 'must have' for any collection. I wish they made more like this!

From: Becky Date: April 24, 2001 at 20:21
A good one! Good production and above average. Excellent live band, I saw them twice and they were very entertaining.

From: Lou Date: April 27, 2001 at 22:29
Nice to see this here. It's a good one for sure! I enjoy this and their first one both so much. WAY ABOVE AVERAGE!

From: SPOCKROCKER Date: April 28, 2001 at 14:36
TOO COOL IS THIS ONE AND IT IS AWESOME. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER XYZ!

From: Joe Date: May 17, 2001 at 20:04
This cd kicks ass!!! Way better than the first one. I wish they would make another cd like with this much intensity!! XYZ rules baby

From: scofenix Date: May 17, 2001 at 21:26
You need both this cd and the self titled one they are what rock is all about..or at least used to be

From: TIM Date: June 24, 2001 at 19:25
Face Down In The Gutter kicks ass!!! The others aren't bad either. Get this album on the Axe Killers label-most refer to it as 'French Import.' It sounds better than any gold album. Get it as fast as you can.

From: T-BONE Date: August 12, 2001 at 15:37
Check out the guitar work on H.H. Boogie and Feels Good. Great Drivin' cd. Put it in the cd player and haul ass!! Believe me!! I got a speeding ticket listening to this cd. got to jammin and the next thing I know, i'm doin' 97mph. Got off with a 74 in a 55 LOL!! Grab it!!

From: Rycheage Date: September 3, 2001 at 17:54
This CD is what good guitar driven rock is about. 'Face Down In The Gutter' and 'Off To The Sun' absolutely rock. 'The Sun Also Rises In Hell' is another standout. This is another must own for any era fan. I just wish these guys would get back together.

From: Kim Date: September 7, 2001 at 10:59
Finally I got this one, adn its a ROCKER. I`l give it a 10 right away. Great sound and great tunes.

From: SlinkyJ Date: November 23, 2001 at 18:11
FRENCH GUTTER ROCK! Fantastic stuff. Face Down in the Gutter has to be one of the meanest guitar riffs around.

From: HG Date: February 16, 2002 at 19:55
If you like the singer on this one, check out a band called Cage, which is where he went after XYZ folded.

From: WidoMakr Date: March 15, 2002 at 20:40
After listening to XYZ I cant understand how this band didnt make it HUGE! sure everyone of us thinks some bands should have been huge but these guys...their sound has it all...their is NOTHING missing from being a major league player...blame mgmt? who knows...all they did was produce was great tunes...Quote the WidoMakr....never more

From: William Sisco Date: April 5, 2002 at 14:27
Great sound combined with a singer who can actually sing makes this album pure dinamite.

From: David Date: April 20, 2002 at 14:03
All you guys dreams are about to come true because they are bringing out a new album soon!, It's just unbelieveable!

From: Federico Date: April 20, 2002 at 17:07
A very good class metal cd with a very nice cover. Z records, Frontiers, Metal Mayhem, Perris, Kivel or MTM.What is the name of the label who have signed them now? I bet on Z. Ok It's not important, but I'm very happy too that they will come back.

From: TIM Date: May 3, 2002 at 11:53
I strongly agree with WidoMakr on this one. There are many bands that certain individuals think should have been huge, but to me this is one of the few deserving much more. This album is excellent. There's a 13th track on the 'Axe Killer' issue called 'TWO WRONGS CAN MAKE A RIGHT.' I can't stress enough how much better the sound is on the 'Axe Killer' label.

From: Friday 13th Date: May 23, 2002 at 5:56
Great band and a must for any Dokken fan. Check out the track 'Off To The Sun' which reminds me of T.T. Quick. friday13th@robhalford.com

From: Reno Date: June 25, 2002 at 19:06
I should redo my last statement. Sorry about that. That's what happens to typing skill after walking through a 115 degree Nuclear plant for an hour. Anyway...I just read on melodicrock.com that XYZ has reformed with Terry Ilous, Marc Diglio, Paul Monroe, and new member JK Northrup. Sean McNabb will play bass together with Tony Franklin, and Vinnie Appice will be playing drums on a few tracks. The cd will be out the beginning of 2003 sometime. This sounds like it's going to be a great cd with alo

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: June 25, 2002 at 23:03
Reno, what the hell do you do for a living anyway? I thought you were a mall cop?? Telling little kids to stop hanging out infront of the toy store or you are going to pop a cap in their ass!

From: Reno Date: June 26, 2002 at 2:13
Armed Security at a Nuclear Plant. I gots da good toyz!

From: Federico Date: June 26, 2002 at 13:52
Thomas Haessler has made it again. He is the boss of MTM(togheter with Lehman). They signed XYZ. Haessler is also a great football player (soccer for America). In 1990 he was champion of the world with Germany. He also played for JUventus(Italy), my fav Football team, so all my sympathy for him and for his label.

From: dokken6008 Date: June 27, 2002 at 4:56
David is partially right: the band IS indeed back together again but their next cd won't be out that soon--more like 'early 2003', at least according to lead vocalist Terry who reports that the band is currently working in the studio for the upcoming XYZ album due out sometime in the future. I think that it's great that the band is back together and I love, love Terry!! That guy is so fuckin' awesome I'm not sure if you guys understand how much I mean that. Fantastic stuff.

From: Tony Date: July 2, 2002 at 11:10
True story here, I got BERATED by a record store clerk chick with a Nirvana shirt on when I purchased this album. She looked at the cover, rolled her eyes, and asked how I could listen to this juvenile crap. I was like 'Can I just go now??'. LOL. Besides that I really dig this album. Marc has a guitar style VERY similar to Nuno Bettencourt which I just love. Very fluid & clean. Thing with these guys is the fans who dig them REALLY dig them! Met people who hate this stuff but dig XYZ.

From: dokken6008 Date: August 9, 2002 at 5:45
Tony, would you happen to live in Seattle?

From: nitrodoll Date: August 29, 2002 at 2:48
....and it's the right time to rock, we 're gonna shake down the walls... excellent disc, i've got the vinyl version imported from london yeeeeaaaars ago... damn i love this disc nitrodoll1974@hotMail.com

From: Steve T Date: September 6, 2002 at 8:43
Better than the debut. An overall toughening up of the sound helped enormously.

From: Baris Date: October 2, 2002 at 3:53
OK, good album but no need for an exeggration also. The sound, tunes are strong, good guitar-work, good voice, so all are GOOOOOOD! but that's all. I couldn't get into the melodies so much which are somewhat inefficient, straightforward and not enough catchy and impressive. So it's not that excellent or great for me. I tried to listen to it a couple more but nothin' changed. There's pure-rock, but still lacks sth. Overall the tape-casette I have is enough for me, so no need to find the CD.

From: dokken6008 Date: October 4, 2002 at 6:35
Make no mistake about it--NONE OF US are over-exaggerating. 'Hungry' is one of the best albums of '91 (there are many), and all the players are incredible. Terry's soaring--beyond excellent--vocals, crunchy-ass guitars and kick-ass solos, and a fucking great drummer who happens to be one of the best in the melodic rock/hard rock genre. Maybe the songs aren't chalk-full of Def Leppard harmonies and melodies that we can catch onto halfway into the song, but XYZ has their strengths--MANY strengths.

From: dokken6008 Date: October 4, 2002 at 6:42
(Now, a response to TIM)--Hey, the 'Two Wrongs Can Make A Right' tune (it's sort of a goof-off; nothing high-class about it) was originally released exclusively as the B-side for the 'Face Down In The Gutter' cassette single back in '91. Probably the only other place you can find it is on this rare XYZ 'Metal Sampler' cd (which I happen to own). The Metal Sampler disc includes (tracks 1 through 5) ---continued---

From: dokken6008 Date: October 4, 2002 at 6:48
---cont.--- 'Off To The Sun', 'The Sun Also Rises In Hell', 'TWO WRONGS CAN MAKE A RIGHT', and both 'Take What You Can' and 'Nice Day To Die' recorded from the Palace in Hollywood in '91. Has anyone else ever heard of or seen or have any idea besides me what this 'Metal Sampler' cd is or where it originated from? On the cover (it's just a sheet--no booklet, just a cheap insert) it shows the same picture of the wolf on 'Hungry', just not the chick. ???????

From: T-BONE Date: October 4, 2002 at 10:15
My cd has the song Two Wrongs Can Make A Right Dokken6008. It's on all the Axe Killer versions of the Hungry cd.

From: TIM Date: October 5, 2002 at 22:16
Has anyone heard the acoustic version of 'Face Down In The Gutter?' I've got it on Audiogalaxy. The guitar is great but the vocals are a tad raspy.

From: Rocker76 Date: November 26, 2002 at 15:25
Great follow-up to 1st one. These guys didn't need Don Dokken at the helm. Consistently good hard rock - as it turns out one of last great albums from an 80s band!

From: dokken6008 Date: November 30, 2002 at 6:33
Rocker76-- Being a Dokken fan, I still couldn't agree with you more. The first XYZ record? Most of the songs sound too fucking similar (with the exception of a few rockers and both of the ballads). 'Hungry' was an awesome progression from their debut (I like the production on this one more, anyhow), musically AND lyrically. 'Face Down In The Gutter' has people going ape-shit over here, but why? 'The Sun Also Rises In Hell' goes down (for ME) as XYZ's best tune EVER (so far--wait until 2003).

From: dokken6008 Date: December 4, 2002 at 7:28
Let me state this once more: Pull your heads out of your asses, everyone! There is much more to good rock 'n' roll than guitar. Marc is an awesome player, YEAH, but check out Paul Monroe. He makes rock 'n' roll drumming interesting and FUN to listen to. He is a very strong and a very powerful player. I'm glad to hear that he will be back with XYZ along with the rest of the band on the new cd (minus Pat Fontaine), otherwise I would be absolutely devastated to find that he wasn't coming back.

From: Date: January 6, 2003 at 21:31
Besides the 6 bonus tunes from the live disc, here are some other tunes you may not know about:Straight In The Night, Only Get You On The Phone, Connected To You and Slow Me Down from their EP, On The Blue Side Of The Night(ST import), Two Wrongs Can Make A Right and Highlife(Hungry imports) and You Got Me Wrong. Enjoy.

From: Cquicmoi Date: January 8, 2003 at 17:26
This CD is absolutely incredible. This is Rock and Roll as it was meant to be. Face Down, Feels Good and Whisky on a Heartache are absoultely great. That's what I call musicianship. You have to get yourself this album if you do not already have it! Get the first one too while you're at it.

From: tomcat777 Date: January 9, 2003 at 12:43
yesterday i was drivin' my car back from school and i cranked up the tune 'don't say no' on my cd player...and i came to realize how good hardrock can be...

From: Reno Date: January 10, 2003 at 0:48
XYZ have wrapped up work on their new studio album One Is Enough To Tango. The release is scheduled for April 2003. Original singer Terry Ilous, JK Northrup is playing guitars, Sean MacNabb plays bass and Paul Monroe is on drums. Vinnie Appice appears as a guest drummer on a few songs. The album features 2 remakes of previous XYZ hits - Inside Out (the band's first hit) and What Keeps Me Loving You (XYZ's second hit). Original guitar player Mark Diglio co-wrote several of the albums songs.

From: LUIS Date: February 4, 2003 at 15:57
Better than the first one. When I Find Love is a great power ballad! luislpaez@hotmail.com

From: naslund Date: February 4, 2003 at 23:19
This is so good I don't even know what to type.

From: jayglam@hotmail Date: March 3, 2003 at 13:14
Great follow up to the self titled CD. Xyz got comparisons to dokken which is understandable, the guitar player Marc is one of the most underated guitarist. I think he attacks the guitar like George Lynch and has a similar sound, that's why I Love his playing. Just 4 superb musicians making a kick ass rock record what more could you want. I should mention the ballad masterpiece 'When I find Love' just listen to it. jay from Australia.

From: Rocker65 Date: March 7, 2003 at 18:59
Great album! It's should be a classic (maybe it is... Is it?)

From: no 1 Date: June 24, 2003 at 17:53
Face Down in the Gutter : ta tararara ta ta tarara ta tararara ta ta tarara Face Down in the Gutter .?!?!!!!!

From: Scandinavia Date: June 27, 2003 at 17:52
Super album! Super sound! These guys have heavy balls!!! Killer riffs on this one...Crossover between real mean Heavy rock & Hardrock but done in a very professional way! This is almost as good as it gets...

From: vandervelde Date: August 29, 2003 at 7:35
This album has a great sound. I think it's much better than sound on the debut, maybe because Don has nothing to do with this....Check 'Face down in the gutter' great hard rockin' song....ballad 'When i find love'is beautiful full of passion...... 'Shake down the walls' wow what a chorus....great cd... a must!!!

From: Great Dane Date: September 15, 2003 at 11:32
Just got a cd with rare tracks by XYZ, None are from their first two releases. Does anyone have it, and possibly any information on it. Its a 14 track cd. And its very good. Production is as good as any studio release.

From: cruise Date: September 15, 2003 at 17:07
An excellent follow up that is alot heavier than the debut with some real heavy metal moments, although the bulk is still melodic rock. The band sound tighter but the songs are not quite as good. Very good. 8/10

From: Metal T Date: October 7, 2003 at 19:47
This record is incredible!Still sounds great to this day.Mark Diglio's killer guitar tone,Terry's vocals and an excellent rhythm section.'Hungry' another underrated GEM by a very talented band.How bands like Motley,Skid Row and Poison got all the glory,and better bands like XYZ did not,is a joke .

From: Rocker76 Date: October 24, 2003 at 10:12
Metal T makes a great point. XYZ are one of my favorite bands from the 80s era of hard rock and most people don't even know them. That sucks because these guys were smokin'. As far as I'm concerned they let the majority of the 80s bands get things started and they took it from there - killer stuff to close out a killer movement of hard rock.

From: Metal T Date: October 28, 2003 at 17:09
Agreed .

From: BORDER RAT Date: January 21, 2004 at 10:55
A GREAT CD PACKED WITH MEMORABLE SONGS.

From: Impaler Date: February 22, 2004 at 1:08
I really like this album! From the power ballad 'When I Find Love' to the increadible sleeze anthem 'Shake Down The Walls' this one rocks. Better than the S/T.

From: James Date: March 13, 2004 at 17:48
OK, i have had this for about 3 years and about the only thing i did with it was pull the song Face Down In The Gutter to put on a mix cd. It kinda got lost is the shuffle. I just really took a listen to it today and it is a very solid, very kickin' album. If you find it someplace pick it up. well worth it.

From: Metal T Date: April 8, 2004 at 20:55
XYZ are still one of the best bands that ive ever heard.An exceptional singer in Terry Illous',a terribly underrated player in Marc Diglio',and a great rhythm section in Fontaine' & Monroe'.Hungry remains one m'fer of an album !----If you don't have it get it .Now keep in mind these commments are coming from a hardcore Candlemass, Exodus,Accept,Dio,Mercyful Fate fan,so beleive me when i say that the original line-up XYZ were the sh*t !------Great Band .

From: dave Date: April 29, 2004 at 1:59
Look at this album cover!! No posssible way for this record to suck! Don't say no and When the night comes down are lethal. You won't waste $$ buying this!! Want to hear the new ones ASAP!

From: PABAB Date: April 30, 2004 at 18:12
I just can't figure out why this album didn't really worked. Great songs, great players, a great singer, and (you're right Dave) a great album cover.

From: AOR freaky Date: May 12, 2004 at 5:05
Think this is their best. More own identity and both heavy and melodic. Really great stuff !

From: Date: June 6, 2004 at 7:26
The debut superceeds this album easily as the songwriting lacks the quality the first one had. Face down in the gutter is the by far the best track here. Still it's miles ahead of Warrant, Trixter and quite a few others from the same era

From: Metal T Date: June 7, 2004 at 20:00
Hey Tony ----If she would have insulted my taste for this killer album,i would have taken her out back and b*tch-slapped her !!!

From: mark Date: June 21, 2004 at 8:39
just found this at my local car boot sale.....and what a find!!! Excellent hard rock with loads of ballsy guitars, great vocals and loads of great songs. Very melodic without losing any edge. Fave songs are 'Face Down','Don't Say No' and 'The Sun Also Rises In Hell'. Now i'm off to find the debut..................

From: Metal T Date: June 27, 2004 at 23:41
Hmmmm.....Let me see ??----Yep, ten of F**king ten...10/10 !

From: Geoff Date: August 16, 2004 at 2:38
Probably not quite as good as the debut but to stare 'Face down in the gutter' in the face and call it anything less than amazing would be a crime. That tune, 'Don't say no', 'When the night comes down', 'Shake down the walls' and 'The sun also rises in hell' make this another monster album, capped off by the brilliant 'When I find love'. Not as consistent as the debut but still home to some killer tracks. 8.5/10

From: kan from taiwan Date: October 11, 2004 at 23:37
i think this album is better than debut! the debut is too much like dokken! this one got their own style!pure hard rock!i like!

From: Scandinavia Date: November 22, 2004 at 15:40
This is 'almost' THE perfect album... If there ever was one....10/10

From: metal man Date: December 1, 2004 at 15:34
THESE GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS NO DENYING IT ONCE YOU'VE HEARD THERE TUNES. ONE OF THE BEST METAL BANDS THAT'VE EVER BEEN!

From: Chad Date: December 11, 2004 at 0:50
Killer! Killer! Killer release. Easily one of the top albums of 1991 when there was alot of good metal being churned out. Fans of Dokken, Lynch Mob and Skid Row will appreciate this one. From beginning to end, this one will not disappoint. Stellar release. If you like Metal/Hard Rock, you can't go wrong with this one. Get off your ass and search this one out! You will not be disappointed.

From: Big Papa K Date: December 25, 2004 at 12:04
This one is an improvement over the first album. This shows more of a Skid Row influence then the Dokken influence of the first album. The top tracks would have to be 'Face Down In The Gutter', 'When I Find Love' and the Free cover 'Fire and Water'. 7/10

From: cquicmoi Date: March 18, 2005 at 22:44
One hell of an album!!! Actually, to my opinion, it was, and still is, one of the best hard rock band to hit the scene. Get the Axe Killer label (French import), it contains a bonus song which kicks ass too. Crank it loud and let it shake down the walls!!! These guys knew what they were doing, and if not, well...it's just as well. Kick ass band with a damn good sound! Thanks guys for letting us know what real rock is all about!!! Cheers!

From: Swriter Date: March 29, 2005 at 17:31
well I give the debut and this one the same grades of 100/100!!! This one is a bit harder and the songs are more consistent throughout, I do love the debut with it's mix of rockers and aor stuff though! I love all Dokken and do not think that Xyz is a clone band, similar as in all metal can be, but Xyz stands on their own. To me, this one sounds more Skid rowish. A great one!!!

From: TIM (2) Date: May 4, 2005 at 9:56
A good, if a little inconsistent disc - I thought the debut was better - but the FREE cover is excellent as is the incredible AOR of 'When I Find Love' which - for AORsters - is worthy of the purchase price on it's own, I kid you not. 7/10.

From: VinceK81 Date: November 15, 2005 at 14:35
Ok, I give this album the coveted TEN! 'Feels Good' and 'Don't Say No'....can't speak highly enough, RIPPING! The riffage on these two songs reminds me much of 'Inside Out' off of S/T. So bouncey with the bass line and catchy guitar. The album tracks on this album are as impressive as the 'hits.' I think it rivals and BLOWS away S/T! HUUH! RIP IT UP!

From: Mediaab Date: December 18, 2005 at 17:38
I definitely think their debut is a little better, but this second cd is also very very good. I'd give it 95/100! Production is super, can't get any better, very tight and perfect sound of the drums. I agree with the people above, this band is way above average and really deserved to become bigger. Sure, they had two gold albums, not a bad achievement, but should have gotten bigger. Can't get better than this really, lot's of power and great songs. Love this one and the debut!!

From: akisryche Date: December 31, 2005 at 10:10
Many people say that everything is played,with respect to rock and metal music,back in the 70's and 80's.Dudes, this is a 1991 release and it Kicks Major Ass!!!!!!This group proudly stands up to prove that statements like the previous ones are completely wrong.Just a perfect,genuine,straight edge,pure FUCKIN HARD ROCK RECORD!!!!!Thundering riffs,granite rhythm section,supersonic solos,outstanding vocals!BUY IT and never ever regret it!My God what a record!!!Thats hard rock!!!

From: aMetalhead1966 Date: January 3, 2006 at 16:47
I always liked this one more than the s/t one.This one is a little rawer it seems....Man the guitar sounds really good here!!

From: speed demon Date: March 27, 2006 at 22:58
WOW what a album! Second one from the guys and in my opinion even a little better! Anthor album that you MUST have in your collection! Perfect hard rock! Great singer, excellent playing! You will need your air guitar and be ready to get on your feet cause people this is what our music is about!

From: headbanger4life Date: May 30, 2006 at 4:42
This is a band that avoivded the sophmore slump. Instead they knocked it out of the f#@(!0 park. These guys are definately one of my favorite bands from this era. I just wish they still made music like this. I have the Japanese version of this one with a bonus track to make it that much sweeter.

WOW..one of the best hair releases ever. I've owned it since it first was released and I still play it on a regular basis. Great songs like 'Face Down in the Gutter' 'When the Night Comes Down' 'Don't Say No' 'Off to the Sun' and quite possibly the best ballad EVER 'When I Find Love'...simply incredible release....

A killer metal band and this is their second release. Comparisons can be made to DOKKEN, BULLETBOYS and STEELHEART and will appeal to lovers of guitar driven melodic metal with excellent vocals......check out that cheezy cover!!!!

From: metalmastermusic Date: June 19, 2008 at 9:16
Really liked this one. I agree with the Steelheart type of sound without the high vocals more of the Saints and Sinners type sound. This is a classic album for sure. A solid mix of rockers and ballads. This will be in collection for a long time. 89/100

This is solid, melodic, guitar-flash hard rock, similar to Dokken, Firehouse, Steelheart, that type of thing. It's solid, but doesn't really do much to make it stand out, for me. Just doesn't hvae a lot of personality or character, but good nonetheless. "Face Down," "Don't Say No" and "Whiskey On A Heartache" are my favorites.

for me this is one of the best hard rock releases ever.a total hair metal masterpiece with an unbelievable sound produced by george tutko.just get it and enjoy the mighty marc diglio rhythm parts so steady and consistent and his solos howling and neverending.wow its so exciting hair metal at its best."hungry" includes many rockers like "face down in the gutter","dont say no","feels good","shake down the walls","h.h. boogie"......and many more.XYZ achieved perfection here!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 18, 2011 at 17:31
Edgier and more consistent than their debut...or may i say rawer but conserving the quaility...well IMHO i've always felt that this band was underrated even though they have great compositions and Dokken managed them 4 a while but...( )..."Face Down In The Gutter" rocks excellently!!!..apart from that another great songs are "Fire & Water"(solid cover originally by Free),"When The Night Comes Down"(with a great chorus),"Feels Good","When I Find Love"(solid smoothie),"H.H. Boogie" & "The Sun Also Rises In Hell"...recommendable album 4 sure...93/100

Listening to this one again all evening. Mark Diglio obviously worships at the altar of George, as the band reminds both of Dokken andj Lynch Mob, although more carefree than either, which is where the Firehouse/Steelheart comparisons I made three years ago come into play. On this release, moreso than the debut, I'm hearing a fair amount of a bluesy Badlands influence in both the guitar and vocals. Production is crystal-clear, but could've used a bit more bottom-end. I promise I haven't been smoking weed, but the weird thing about this disc is, I could swear I hear Terry Ilous pulling off some Steelheart-like helium-squeals. Am I hallucinating? I sincerely hope I am. Anyway, the guy does a lot of up-and-down, shrieky show-off stuff vocally that it wouldn't've hurt him to tone down. Still, this is a real good disc that's all the better for not having been beaten to death by radio or MTV, then or now (meaning you hardly ever hear anything from this album on those retro shows whose names

... invariably include a reference to hairspray). Anyway, you could put this disc on at a party in place of the usual, tired old Poison/Crue/Ratt crap that everybody's heard ten billion times, and the ladies would keep on dancin' and the guitar-geek dudes would be going, "Who the fuck is that?!" This disc came out in the fall of 1991, missing the boat by a sizable margin, as it barely made a splash at the time. Hair-metal wasn't dead yet, but this kind of flashy-fingered, smooth-voiced stuff wasn't exactly the flavor of the day, even without the looming flannel army. Yet somehow it doesn't sound too terribly dated twenty years later, again, because it likely hasn't been hammered into your skull. Good disc. My favorite song is easily "WHiskey On A Heartache."

What a beast this album is. Hard rocking as hell with great riffs and solos. Everything is right on this one, a slice of the finest 80's hard rock. 93/100
