Anyone out there own this one? It just went for $128+ on eBay, so I'm kinda curious if it's really that good! :P

From: melo Date: April 13, 2004 at 17:42
this cd must be rockin then, anyone with a copy for sale please e mail me melodicrock@telstra.com thanks.

This is pre-NOVA REX and nearly impossible to find. Good luck ever getting it.

From: Geoff Date: May 23, 2004 at 20:22
I have a CDR copy of this and is it worth USD $128??? Gosh no! It's a pretty cool 'party' rock album, for lack of a better term. The lyrics are simple and a little banal at most times, but I guess the CD's a bit of fun. Not great, though, not even close.

From: longhairjoe Date: October 4, 2004 at 5:29
will trade through the email for a copy of this,have lots of rare stuff,joebielich@hotmail.com

From: abbyriley Date: October 31, 2004 at 20:04
I picked this cd up in a pawn shop for $3!! It is good, but not worth the $ 128 someone paid on Ebay for it. Good mix of hard rockers and ballads. Old King Cole rocks!!!!

From: Date: February 25, 2005 at 15:00
97 Tears is a great ballad.

From: Date: February 26, 2005 at 13:20
I have a copy of this, but wouldn't trade it--too hard to find.

From: AJSGirl Date: July 11, 2005 at 15:14
I have a couple of copies of this CD--Autographed by the lead singer. Still new and in the package. If anyone would be interested, please email me at onlyonedii@yahoo.com. Please put in topic:Accelerator CD.

Well IMO this is bad record...some good moments(cocaineII) but the best song here is. cover of Bad Company( isn't this saying a lot?)...very blend with very thin production...until you gave some bucks for this i recommend to hear this first...

As a personal friend and past co-worker of Tom Greco (bass player in Accelerator), I'm sad to say that Tom lost his life in a motorcycle accident last Saturday (Oct. 8th, 2005). As I attended Tom's funeral yesterday, I was reminded of what a fantastic guy he was. He packed so much life into his forty years. He was a loving husband and father of two young boys, and was one of the finest individuals you could ever meet on this earth. This album is a wonderful tribute to an absolutely amazing guy.

Very average Hard Rock delivered by Accelerator. I picked this up at a garage sale for $2.00 and I have to agree with the above...this is not worth forking over $128.00. I will be giving this away to someone as I would not feel right taken someones hard earned money for a cd that is not good. There are plenty of excellent cd's out there to buy. There are a couple of party rockers but the rest are very standard and plenty of fillers. Nothing really stands out. Rated 3/10.

From: Steelheart Date: April 1, 2007 at 6:01
This CD is bad, very bad. The opening track has a fake-audience over-dubbed, before the band launch into a awfully harmonised "Welcome to the Show", before the band is introduced, and between each members name a reprise of the chorus...making them sound like a British holiday-camp band. The songs are so completely bland, the vocals sub-standard and it's just generally a bad album.

From: aor-boy Date: September 4, 2010 at 3:46
This is a average Hard Rock group. The ballad 97 Tears(Kathy Ann) is okay, but nothing more. The lead singer has a good voice, but yeah it's nothing to write home about. 3.5/10

Ummm...just a decent album but honestly is quite plain and simple..it has its moments such as "Old King Cole" that is the best cut of the album IMHO,"Cocaine(part2)" a song that quite rocks good and "Farewell" which is a nice closing one...tracks 2,4,6 and the cover of Bad Company's classic "Rock & Roll Fantasy" happens to be a goodie...decent album and that's about all...75/100...and btw!!!...forget the cheesy opener "Welcome To The Show"...one of the chessiest one in rock history!!!!
