|This CD could be the next Maiden CD. "Son Of A Gun" and "Born In '58" highlight this excellent metal disc. Soaring vocals and shredding guitarwork from future Maiden guitarist Jannick Gers. Highly recommended.

|This album is different in some respects to Bruce's work with Iron Maiden in the 1980s. The riffs have just as much melody as Maiden's,but aren't as fast for the most part.In fact,I agree with Bruce when he said the riff in the excellent title track is reminiscent of Rainbow. Janick Gers is a superb guitarist (later to join Maiden).Son of a Gun is almost a slow-burner,the Mott the Hoople cover is good,while Born in 58 and Gypsy Road are both very worthy tracks.

|Two Iron-Madiens leave the safety of the medieval torture chamber for solo careers--guitarist Adrian Smith is gone for good, while vocalist Dickinson thought he could operate a solo career in addition to his ongoing Madian work. Yea Right!!! Thank god dickinson do's not try to ape the time-proven, internationally renowned style of Madian. 10 simple straight ahead hard-rock songs, harkening back to early-70's British glories such as vintage Purp and Heep, minus the key-boards.

|"Zulu Lulu" could be an out-take from "Who Do We Think We Are". The album starts off totally solid with three great tracks in a row:"Son Of A Gun" in which a subdued verse builds to an explosive chorus in this powerful anti-gun, frountier consciousness song. After track 3 it gets a little more uneven, including a cover of "All The Young Dudes", a glitter period piece that proves to not translate so well over time, good axe arrangement though by new axeman Janick Gers, superb!!! 8 out of 10.

|I have the new reissue with the five B-sides included, and one of 'em is a hellraising version of "Sin City" by AC/DC. That's probably my favorite on this whole disc. Agreed, this album is VERY different from Bruce's work with Maiden, and pure hard rock. Actually reminds me not a little of Y&T. Note that a lot of the things that Bruce did to annoy me in Maiden, he doesn't do here. He doesn't yodel too mich, the lyrics aren't overly academic, the songs are generally short and to the point. 7/10.

|Man, let me tell YOU that this guy's solo career never failed to impress me. It shows this man, Bruce, has loads of talent and still sounds good outside of Iron Maiden. This particular album is a MUST HAVE for ALL BRUCE DICKINSON ENTHUSIASTS!!

|OUTSTANDING...All hail Bruce...he is the man, often imitated, never duplicated!!!!

|Not too bad for a solo debut. The first half of the disc is very good, but the quality of the songs slips on the second half. The re-release offers 5 additional songs which are all decent for the most part.

|this is bruce doing good ol' road rock. put the petal to the metal and let er rip. my favourite vocalist by far. by the way if you like this sound do yourself a favour and check out hammerfall. they are a newer band that rocks in the mode of dio,dokken,stryper, and maiden.UP THE IRONS MATE.

|Love this album from start to finish with the exception of the Mott the Hoople remake. Was very curious how this would sound but Bruce went out and showed he could do something besides Maiden without really trying to prove anything, almost like he was on vacation just having a good time. Great rockers and the bonus tracks are a nice surprise, especially Sin City which alone makes getting the re-issue worth it.

|Although this may have been a disappointment to some his fans, it was a great recording that proved he was a diverse lead singer with more range and flexibility than most people could have possibly imagined. This entire album stands as a masterful assemblage of rock tunes, even the cover tunes impress. "All The Young Dudes" sounds every bit as good as the Mott The Hoople version. The originals "Lickin' The Gun," "Tattooed Millionaire," and "Son Of A Gun" are model rock-pop.

|What a brill album. I listen to this about once a month and it still gets better and better after every listen. The lyrics are fab and the riffs are great too. It nothing like The Maiden, however will go down in my mind as an all time classic. The range Bruce has is out of this world.

|Very different from what we should expect from Bruce but still a great one. But I must say that I rather how the songs sound live, like in the Dive!Dive!Live! video, which has not been released on dvd yet. I would give it a 8,5.

|I absolutely love this album. I think this is Bruce's best solo release. I thought my cd might have gotten warped due to the amount of play this one got. He did an excellent job on the cover of "All the Young Dudes".

|i must admit when i heard son of a gun i thought it was another maiden album but then it became more about hard rock different to maiden but that's what it's about love the title track,born in '58,the ac/dcish hell on wheels,gypsy road and a great version of all the young dudes it's a very very good album with great guitaring from jannick gers

|People seem to hate this album, I guess because it's not heavy and doesn't sound like Maiden. I kinda thought that was the point of a solo album, really. Anyway, what you get is straight-up, old-school, late-'70's/early-'80's styled hard rock. Some of the harder songs remind me of Y&T in a way. Nothing here is bad, and the album overall, while not being an all-time classic by any means, doesn't deserve all the shit that's been tossed at it. I have the 2002 reissue, with five bonus tracks, including a cover of "Sin City," a live Samson cover ("Ridin' With The Angels"), and easily the album's most striking song, the stark, guitar-and-flute ballad "Darkness Be My Friend."
