From: tomcat Date: May 17, 2004 at 15:50
i didn't give this disc much of a chance after hearing the opener 'bang the drum' because of the def leppard, bon jovi approach..but the other songs on this disc show what talented musicians were involved in warp drive. Songs like 'crying girl ( in the tradion of the finest Mr big songS), 'Eyes on you (excellent axe work), 'I 4 U (amazing ballad),'take me now' and 'stay on , stay on' have such an original approach that i was totally hooked on this album way back in 1990 and i still am, GREAT CD

From: AOR freaky Date: May 18, 2004 at 8:00
This is a nice album! A unique style and worth searching out ! Good that you gave it a few more spins, Tomcat ! This album deserves it !

From: ROB GARCIA Date: May 18, 2004 at 11:02
FANTASTIC!!.great album indeed!.this one just brings me fond memories from the 80's.i would describe this guys as a mixture of bonfire with def leppard. mark woerpel is such a deadringer for clauss lessman that i actually think he could fill his shoes anytime.the material it's quite consistent throughout the whole album and the production is pretty good too,i suggest you get this pronto if you dig any of the bands i mentioned above.a couple of spins and you'll be hooked...i guarantee it!!.

From: Rhythmslave01 Date: May 21, 2004 at 19:29
Hello. Can anyone burn me a cd-r of this cd? Please contact me at KSK1070@insight.rr.com. Thanks.

From: Rene Date: June 12, 2004 at 9:44
Great album with some cool songs. Not all the songs are so good but its still a good solid hard rock album the way we all like it at HEAVY HARMONIES, noooooo????

From: glamster Date: June 13, 2004 at 6:23
An underrated example of great melodic rock form the Eighties: Warp Drive was ignored, even if the year of the release of 'Gimme Gimme' (1989)was the best moment for melodic rock, with a lot of great albums... Try to get this one, you'll not be disappointed!

From: Dean Date: July 3, 2004 at 5:05
Hey rythymslave go to http://www.motorcityrock.com/bands/bands_d.html -the site is called Motor City Rock 1980-1990 if you look under warp drive you'll find this entire album available for download-free. While you're there check out tons of other killer bands like Halloween,Seduce,Madam X-if you have the time and a fast connection you can find lots of good stuff on there.

From: Geoff Date: August 16, 2004 at 22:48
I'm a bit worried to say this with the big score above, but I actually found this CD to be nothing worthy of speaking about at all. Not horrid, and home to some great hard rock riffs, but just well below standard (or close to it) to these ears. Okay hard rock, but wouldn't get more than a 6/10 or so from me.

From: TIM (2) Date: August 18, 2004 at 5:31
There are some real long-lost gems on Music For Nations, but this sure isn't one of them. Think it was an OTT Kerrang! review at the time that convinced me to buy this. Have no idea where the Def Leppard comparison comes from (because it has some guitar in it?), for me this is like a harder-rocking 'The Creek'. It's pretty original sounding but they don't have the tunes to carry it off, and opener 'Bang the Drum' is horrific. Duller than a long weekend in Belgium. 4/10.

From: Metalhead Date: October 8, 2004 at 0:09
Did felt the Def Leppard approach on Bang The Drum. Like what one would hear on Hysteria. But after that, it's one rock 'n roll hell of a ride! Enjoyed this very much.

From: metalhead Date: October 22, 2004 at 3:30
hello this is bob from wisconsin i have 3 copies of this i remember working with these guys iused to video tape them some of the members whent on to a band called doc hammer here is my email metalhead@centurytel.net ps doc hammer are know brok up they had a tape out called the doctor is in

From: SeducedByMetal Date: February 20, 2005 at 22:46
If I Remember I Picked This 1 Up Quite Cheap..Decent Hard Rock..With A Glam Image...I Was Not Dissapointed When I First Heard This Cd For The 1st Time...Very Suprised..Very Talented Musicians..8/10 for Me...

From: z4roxx Date: February 21, 2005 at 0:22
It's good hard rock but they miss of somethin'....I find this cd decent but all songs are little weak without any remarkable riff or great hooks.6.5/10 is the right rate I think.

From: Geoff Date: February 21, 2005 at 1:33
Gemeni fans be alert!!! When I was writing my comments on Gemeni the other day I knew there was a band which sounded very similar, and this is them. Both scantily produced hard rock efforts with a few decent songs here and there, but neither too great IMO. Fans of one will appreciate the other though.

From: T-Bone Date: April 21, 2005 at 15:30
Not too interesting. A few good moments, but very inconsistant

From: Kim HP Date: August 27, 2005 at 10:43
agree with T-Bone and other reviewers here. For me this is decent at best. They sure do have an original sound, and the production is pretty good too, but even after several repeated listens I still have trouble remembering the songs. But check it out for yourself, and see what you think...

From: metalguf Date: May 12, 2006 at 11:25
I agree with Geoff. But they are very rare to find. Nice to have them though.

From: dodi Date: October 16, 2006 at 8:58
Hey Dean, i can't find anything about Warpdrive on your site http://www.motorcityrock.com/bands

From: kipvanpearcy Date: May 3, 2008 at 22:21
I'm just glad I downloaded it before I considered buying it. Not good at all.

From: Scrounger Date: July 20, 2008 at 17:47
There's nothing here memorable at all, it doesn't even know what it is??? Very, Very BLAND!

From: erik Date: April 16, 2010 at 14:05
Some harsh comments here. Very incorrect i must say. I found some excellent songs on the disc: Killer ballad with I4U, great rock songs with Moments Away, Take Take me Now, Rock's the Boat, Stay On Stay On, Making time stand Still and the fantastic commercial hit potential closure Cover Me. Very nice disc. Good voice 81/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 26, 2010 at 19:14
Very good album that mixes Hard Rock and AOR in a balanced way...probably is like a hybrid of XYZ,Blue Murder and Blue Tears.."Bang The Drum" is a cool track with a nice short but consistent backing vocals,"Moments Away" is a very good track,"I4y" is a decent AOR song,"Words" a good ballad,"Eyes On You" is an excellent solid track with some great drumming,bass and guitar execution,one of the highlights of the album 4 sure,"Rock 'n The Boat" is another goodie and the last 3 songs "Stay On Stay On","Making Time Stand Still" & "Cover Me" are top notch AOR tracks,these songs made me want to listen more of these guys stuff but no more than 11 songs on the album(wonder if the album was longer in length,what would have they offered us?).Just a band that released this album but never continue...if there's a second release just let me know as this is the only record i've known of them.88/100

From: smiley89 Date: August 27, 2010 at 12:08
Another one that gets mixed reviews. First let me say I have the original 1988 issue on Nalli Records out of Ann Arbor, MI.. Up-tempo hard rock that has it's moments. There is no doubt these guys were tallented and should have had a follow up release. You have heard it all before but these guys tried and gave it a decent effort.

From: smiley89 Date: August 27, 2010 at 12:15
By the way. The original has only 10 tracks. Track 11 "Cover Me" is not on the Nalli records release.

From: smiley89 Date: August 27, 2010 at 12:54
Another side note. The original that I have shows (on back insert) that "Rick Medlocke" of "Blackfoot" fame not only sings on this one, he also helped produce it!

From: hair metal again Date: August 30, 2020 at 9:14
Excellent debut for WARP DRIVE that sometimes is ahead of its time with those difficult and beatiful melodic lines that keep the interest high in every note!the performance is very good,warm vocals , great guitars parts almost every Where and very strong songs!surely among the best indies
