Classic stuff here. The best Helix ever did.

From: Lars Date: July 9, 2001 at 6:40
Pure crap.

From: Kim Date: September 7, 2001 at 15:09

From: Jason Date: January 19, 2002 at 11:42
Pure 80's metal at its best.

From: Kim Date: August 20, 2002 at 8:49
Dan, do you want a scan of this one.???

From: RichieRocker Date: September 14, 2002 at 20:58
A rock classic!! So many good songs on this album. I feel like these guys should have been a lot bigger in the USA. I know they were huge in Canada. My FAvorites on this album are 1,2,3,4,5, 6,9,11.

From: J Scott Date: October 28, 2002 at 19:07
I saw this tour at the Sunken Gardens in San Antonio, TX. They were a great party band. Alcatraz opened for them. This was an awesome album and great follow-up to "No Rest"

From: b casarin MEX Date: January 18, 2003 at 1:46
comentario a tiempo: no sabia que la musica de helix era heavy metal an observation: i dont think so that the helix music is heavy metal!!!

OTRO DISCO OLVIDABLE. PARA LA EPOCA EN LA QUE FUE EDITADO SI HABIA ALGO QUE HACIA FALTA EN ESTE TIPO DE BANDAS ERA ORIGINALIDAD,Y HELIX, MAS ALLA DE UN "NO REST FOR THE WICKED" APENAS ACEPTABLE, NO ERA UN GRUPO QUE SE CARACTERIZARA JUSTAMENTE POR EXCESO DE IDEAS. SOLO MEDIOCRE. 4/10.NADA DE LO ANTERIOR Y MENOS,LO QUE LLEGO DESPUES, RESULTO TRASCENDENTE. carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

From: 80's fan Date: November 20, 2003 at 11:29
Cool album! ROCK YOU is the best hit from this band!

From: Blaine Date: February 2, 2004 at 20:25
Whatever happened to this awesome band?

From: illimey Date: February 3, 2004 at 1:23
Blaine - surf on over to www.planethelix.com and find out!!

From: Bunny Date: February 3, 2004 at 3:53
Canada en aquellos días (1984),aún era bastante timido con sus producciones y quiza a lo mejor es por ello que gente como Helix,Voivod,April Wine e inclusive Saga,Triumph y Loverboy entre muchos otros;no lograrón evolucionar su sonido y sus ventas...de esta producción de Helix,(Make me do) Anything you want y Animal house vendrían a ser los temas aceptables...erbunny@telesal.net...

la balada , Make Me Do Anything y You Keep Me Rockin',es lo mas destacable del disco, por cierto la balada es bastante buena.

From: K.K. Poland Date: April 15, 2004 at 10:00
ROCK YOU ROCKS!

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 0:01
Run of the mill 80's hard rock. The opening track "Rock You" is a good rock anthem and "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'" is good catchy pop metal, but the rest is just bland. 5/10

From: WhiteLion Date: November 2, 2004 at 19:56
Another awsome cd here from Helix, song look alike but still catchy

From: Metalhead Date: January 4, 2005 at 12:50
Very dated but Gimme Gimme... is still very enjoyable. When The Hammer... is also good. But over all, this is not "PURE 80s METAL AT ITS BEST". How can somebody came to that conclusion with this album?

From: Metalhead66 Date: January 11, 2005 at 16:05
Helix's best by FAR!!!!!After this,they went lookin for a hit...alas they didn't find one....too bad cause they could have done more..9/10

From: GlenRavine Date: January 11, 2005 at 16:21
Metalhead66 - you nailed it - by far their best - everything after was listenable.

From: Blackie Date: March 5, 2005 at 19:25
Great album, but I think that the tracks written here are all wrong, I think the songs are 10, the 8th is make me do anything you want and the 9th is six strings, nine lives... Am I wrong?

From: ed Date: March 25, 2005 at 13:40
Yeah that's right. There's something wrong in the track list. #8 is "MAKE ME DO ANYTHING YOU WANT" and #9 is "SIX STRINGS, NINE LIVES". You're so right, Blackie. Now, speaking about this album this is HELIX's best. This one includes the song "ROCK YOU", which is HELIX's best hit.

From: Mudhawk Date: September 15, 2005 at 11:29
Helix is brilliant. I saw them open for Quiet Riot and Whitesnake on this tour. Nobody in Tulsa had heard of them, but by the end of their very, very short set (something like 30 min - typical for 3rd slot band in big arena) they had converted me. This album is an absolute masterpiece. I own hundreds of CDs, 30Gigs of songs, and I still put this album on at least 3 times a month. It capures the feeling of 80s Heavy Metal in a big way. Check their previous CD too. Heavy Metal love is excellent tr

From: aMetalhead1966 Date: December 29, 2005 at 12:53
Just got this on C.D.(a reissue/release) and I gotta say it Rocks!! It takes me back to 84....Man...ahhhh...All in all this was a great buy IMO!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 4, 2007 at 10:46
Entre gusto y colores amigo Ale-Carro...Para mi en lo particular(sin ser un fan acerrimo de la banda)me parece un trabajo decente.Quizas trataron con este album de llegar a una masa de publico mas amplia pero sin embargo no pudieron romper esa barrera que otras bandas de ese entonces estaban logrando(Ratt,Dokken ect...)."Rock You" imaginate...quien no haga un Headbanging con esta pieza o por lo menos mueva el cuerpo un poco es un muerto.El resto de los temas tambien tienen su "algo" que lo hace

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 4, 2007 at 10:47
un interesante trabajo.8/10.

From: lalorock Date: March 8, 2007 at 12:10
Estoy de acuerdo con el anterior comentario,Helix en este album saco unos temas rockeros en la onda hard rock de grupos como Ratt, Twisted Sister, Quiet Riot pero sin llegar a tener los logros de estas bandas citadas, el éxito de estas bandas fue tambien por la promoción y marketing que sus caompañias discograficas les dieron, este album posee buenos temas como ese Rock you excelente! y otras buenas tambien pero sin llegar nunca a la calidad de los Icon por ejemplo,album aceptable 7.5/10.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 28, 2007 at 23:39
Creo que Icon no tuvieron la repercucion de Helix a lo que se refiere a comercialidad,sin embargo tanto uno como el otro grupo se merecian mas.

From: VICE Date: October 14, 2007 at 14:27
"Rock You", "Young & Wreckless" & "You Keep Me Rockin'" is all classics!

From: underworld king Date: December 19, 2007 at 5:58
My introduction to Helix and what an intro it was! I love every song on this cd and the videos were awesome for Gimme and Rock You featuring some nice looking gals.

From: shoemaker Date: December 20, 2007 at 8:07
Their best album, pretty cool. One of my first LPs.

From: Zinny Date: April 12, 2012 at 5:34
I totally agree with "underworld king", this was my first Helix album too and instant favourite. If you like kickass party rock & roll that makes you feel good and play air guitar, similar to the feeling of similarly fantastic Kix et al, then Helix will rock your ass! Production is not perfect, but works well for this type of music and the '09 remaster sounds excellent! Many killer songs on this album, including the singles, and Helix during their peak '83-'85 deserved more success than they got for sure. These albums are often listened to in my car/home players and imo they are true classics of timeless rock & roll. Last but not least, Helix was an amazing live act, 100% energy and fun! Cool thing is that the reunion album Vagabond Bones is actually much better than expected, close to their 80s brilliance. Highly recommended too!

From: Auslander Date: February 23, 2021 at 12:11
Now this was a fun band who had videos you have to see to believe. There is no way in these puritan feminist times that the Rock You video would be shot today! This is straight up good times party rock. You can't go wrong with a Helix disc but this is probably their best overall.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: February 23, 2021 at 14:31
... And then there was the video for "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'," intended for the Playboy Channel and featuring an underage Traci Lords. Once it came out she was only 16, this video disappeared. A bridge too far, even for the free-wheeling decade of decadence, which was also the decade of the PMRC, "Just Say No," and the Moral Majority. Helix, a good, no-frills hard-rock band. Martin Popoff said it best on his podcast: "Go listen to some Helix. They will make you happy." But yeah, "Rock You," the song, is kinda dumb.

From: Auslander Date: February 24, 2021 at 0:32
Yeah I don't think Helix will win any poetry awards for their lyrics. But, I mean they approach any topic in their limited repertoire with enthusiasm... They come across as dudes who would be fun to hang out with, even if I wouldn't be able to keep up with their hard partying ways!
