Existing comments about this CD

From: Rycheage Date: March 14, 2004 at 15:07
The songs on the album rock along in good pace for the most part, and are musically interesting. Deresh's vocals are adequate but it's hardly what you would call a classic AOR voice. The rest of the musicianship is superb.

From: Rene Date: March 16, 2004 at 17:15
I love this album. Great melodic hard rock with a metal edge tipical of the mid 80s. GREAT ALBUM. BUY OR DIEEEEEEE!!!!!!

From: Jörg Date: June 30, 2004 at 3:40
I think this CD, is just an ordinary Record. Nothing excting is happen here, some songs are ok, but no great "Smasher" . Singer sounds a bit, like Marc Storace from Krokus on a bad day. Visit www.sleaze-metal.com From Germany JÖRG

From: GreyArea Date: July 1, 2004 at 23:30
Deresh's vocals are VERY tight. Disappointed that this band didn't last longer than a single album.

From: Geoff Date: February 3, 2005 at 6:57
I wouldn't pay anywhere near the asking price, but this is a very good, solid collection of hard rock songs. When you consider this was made in 1985, these guys were doing it a lot better than a lot of bigger acts. Good solid CD. 'All my love' is awesome, but all tracks are well done.

From: Nick C Date: August 22, 2005 at 15:58
I quite like this and I think Geoff's comments are a pretty fair assesment of the release. Has this been released on CD officially?? If so I might look out for it. I think it's definately worth having if your hooked on mid 80's Rock with a slight pomp feel...not a classic but yeah pretty cool. Don't think I'd pay the asking price either even if it's a legit CD. All My Love is a great track though and the rest is in a similar vein.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: August 30, 2005 at 13:17
Decent Hard Rock album, no es para tenerlo muy en cuenta pero contiene un buen corte All My Love y como casi siempre es en los mejores cortes, un corte total de Hard/AOR que recuerdan mucho a los Cobra, como lo dije un album decente solo eso.

From: Mudhawk Date: September 15, 2005 at 11:08
I have this on cassette and it was one of my favorie EP's from that time. The singers voice is gruff and strained at times, but their songs are solid and memorable. I can see why they didn't get anymore attention beyond this, they lacked a certain something to put them into big league status. If anyone has this on CD, let me know! I have been looking for it for a very long time. I have a lot of the bands listed here and we can do a trade. mudhawk@carolina.rr.com

this is CRAP!!! All too heavy for me. don't have any good chorus. If you like it very heavy this baby is for you.

From: rene Date: February 24, 2006 at 15:31
No METALGUF, this album is not Crap at all, even if you think so.

From: zld Date: February 24, 2006 at 19:33
Hmmm, too heavy? Better change your name in Metalfluff then, if this is too heavy for you! Ha,ha :-) Great band BTW.

From: Japangea Date: May 21, 2006 at 11:24
Ex-Sin who did one nice shape-disc entitled "One The Run".Rik Foxx left the band and formed the band "Original Sin" and others kept playing with the name "S.I.N." They hated to be in trouble with Rik again,they changed the name into Jag Wire when they made this album."On The Run" was one of best songs come out from L.A.Metal.

Hey All, We had a blast recording this album, a few long nights on Melrose Blvd. in Hollywood,Ca. Ate a lot of sushi from Tommy Tangs, I don't think either of those places are there anymore (the recording studio & restaurant)I wish the l.p. was recorded better, the Master tapes sound like thunder...very cool. I too am disappointed that the band didn't last longer, we had really bad management. There was another albums worth of songs waiting to be recorded...Thanks for the comps! Carl Elizondo

From: TONI MALLORCA Date: July 5, 2007 at 6:11
la semi-balada que da titulo album es un temazo que ademas me recuerda mucho a QUEEN,lastima que el resto del album deje que desear!

From: Scrounger Date: July 20, 2008 at 8:58
I was after this album for an eternity, then it popped up one day for about £8 and I nailed it. I want to say I love this album, but I don't. It's good, but not great, worth owning if you are mad about the L.A. metal scene of the 80's. I have a demo of SIN's "Break Down The Walls" (members of SIN went on to form Jag Wire) and that song is awesome!!!! So i wanted to track down Jag Wire. The vocals aren't brilliant (Art Deresh sounds alot like Nadir D'Priest from London), but there are some seriously good tracks here that suffer from poor vocal and terrible production. To me, the sound seems almost muted at times and the guitars needed to be higher in the mix rather than keyboards and vocals. Overall, it has 2 tracks that make it worth owning - "On The Run" (SIN Version is better tho') and the mighty "Taking The City".

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 7, 2010 at 23:01
This is a quite interesting album that mixes some Heavy Metal with Melodic Rock/AOR as it has edgy guitars but also very melodic keyboards... ,"All My Love" is a very good solid AOR song,"On The Run" rocks,"Takin' The City" rocks goodly with those crazy keyboards & guitars ..."Love Can' Wait" AOR song...Art Deresh sounds just like Minoru Nihada (Earthshaker/Loudness singer)...a very good effort from this act that only recorded this album and then vanished away...shamely....84/100

From: AndrewZealand Date: March 24, 2013 at 3:14
I listened to a few tracks on youtube and I'd say this is an above average '80s metal album. What led me to it was my interest in Howard Drossin whose work as a film and video game composer I'm a great admire of, especially on the Genesis game "The Ooze" from 1995. Would love to happen upon a copy of this on LP

From: hair metal again Date: September 27, 2021 at 4:42
excellent album for JAG WIRE offering some 80 s metal well performed !big keys and guitars and some great songs like "all my love" and "love cant wait" show the talent of the band that could do more if it got signed by a big company (think they deserved it)!good stuff
