the best band glam/sleazy of the world

From: Rocks Date: June 5, 2003 at 18:47
This album is worth a listen, tell yas that!

From: RR-Finland Date: August 28, 2003 at 14:18
Good tunes included on this one. Motorvatin, Devil Woman, Oriental Beat...Best glamrock band indeed!

From: Luis Date: May 11, 2004 at 20:18
Their best song ever: Visitor!

From: Kip Date: September 10, 2004 at 3:09
OMG I bought this and tried my hardest to get into it, but I couldn't get past the GAWD AWFUL, OUT OF TUNE SINGING. I mean, did the producers of this record just say 'close enough' and stamp it? I don't even think you can catoragize these guys as AOR, melodic or metal. They were very punkish and sounded like they were trying to crossover to mainstream rock on this album. The production is also terrible. Overall, this CD may have the distinction of being the very worst album I ever bought. 1/10

From: Geoff Date: February 11, 2005 at 18:18
LOL Kip, I agree fully. I know these guys have a following, but this is the only album I ever bought of them and I thought it was absolutely awful. Couldn't see the allure at all. Where were the hooks and the good songs? The decent musicianship? Couldn't find any of it on this one. Hugely unrecommended and I think 1/10 is too generous!

From: WASP1 Date: February 20, 2011 at 16:05
Brilliant album. Easily the best glam band of the 1980's. Across between 70's glam, punk, pop and hard rock. Classic for sure.
