I saw a different album cover of this one. It was white with a drawing of a flower(?)in the middle. Was that the original from LICK records?

From: Marcelo & Tiago Date: June 4, 2003 at 1:20

Their other works are better, Not all that but worth getting.

From: RR-Finland Date: August 28, 2003 at 14:04
Probably best Hanoi album so far. First band in Finland, what got breakthrough in outside of Europe. People respects this band more outside of Finland than in its home country, what is shame. Im happy that Mike and Andy rebuild the band again and went to studio after all those years.

Los padres de toda la movida sleazy, fueron ellos los primeros, este disco se nota quer es el primero y la produccion es mala,son buenos temas que si los llegan a pulir mas saldrian diamantes.

From: rnr adddicted Date: February 14, 2004 at 16:27

the best

From: andres_gnr Date: June 5, 2007 at 17:27
Un muy buen disco, que muestra un sonido primitivo con que la banda comenzo y inicio su carrera como una de las mas influyentes. Claras influencias de Aerosmith, New York Dolls, Rolling Stones y Chuck Berry, hacen de este disco una obra maestra del Glam Punk. Una de mis bandas favoritas de todos los tiempos...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 1, 2011 at 22:42
ummm..not very satisfied with this debut...i mean i respect the Hanois but this debut for me was a bit weak...a band that has two good factors...Michael Monroe and the other being the great exponents of the genre in Europe...nowadays they are a cult band..."Village Girl" reminded me The Cure???.. ,"Don't Never Leave Me" likeable,"First Timer" ala Lords Of The New Church,now we are talking big baby! & "Walking With My Angel" a goodie...for die hard fans probably but for me...75/100
