This is a superb album, Is it out on CD??? The vocals are superb, Randy's guitar playing is out of this world and the band are so tight!!! The songs are punchy hard rock with the occassional twist (Life in Space, Loco Love). The band released a second album "Revenge" which was just as good, then they just vanished Arrgh Misery!! If you can get a copy of either grab them as you won't be disappointed!

I second that.I would consider cutting off my right testicle for this to come out on cd.I wouldnt mind you,but there would be a slight delay in saying no (very slight indeed).This is flat out a great release.

From: Metal Pete Date: November 23, 2004 at 11:40
Used to have 'Revenge' on tape, it was a good one. Surprised to see they cover STARZ on this one here, only a year or two after STARZ themselves put that song out! A great one, at that! cool

Average AOR release, un album promedio para ese aņo rozando por momentos con el sonido New Wave como Life In Space(quiza el mejor corte), lo que mas me gusta es esa portada del disco jejeje, una de las mejores que haya visto (con esa imagen a la vez simple y legendaria), por ahi algunos temas se salvan, para este aņo hubieron mejores albums que merecen mas atencion este no lo recomiendo asi como su album Revenge ambos me decepcionaron, siempre espere mas por tener ese nombre Legendario.

Look... this is an absolute classic (as is Revenge). Been searching the known universe for a CD release of these two, no joy!!! Totally, blinding power pop aor with the odd weirdo twist.... ESSENTIAL.

Interesting album boring KROKUS style hardrock numbers change with brillant AOR (Chicago nights) and superb Poprock songs (Life in space).

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 12, 2011 at 21:42
In agreement with the Krokus comparison(shoemaker)and the New Wave thing(Rafo Phoenix)...in fact this album mixes AOR(tracks 1 & 2,a cover of Starz)plus some other rocking tracks in the shape of "New York City"(the best cut IMO)& "Getaway" and New Wave "Life In Space"(the song is not bad but for me it was a big FILLER,completely outta place in here,sorry my friend Rafo!! )..."Loco Love" & "Familiar Faces" are good ones...Randy's voice is very ala Marc Storace(Krokus fame and that's what makes the album sound like the band mentioned)...i'd say that this album is enjoyable...recommedable?...a matter of tastes!!!...perhaps yes...84/100

MAYDAY were a fairly solid HR outfit whose origins lay with the New York act SUN. They managed to release 2 LPs with this being their debut. Their follow up "Revenge" from 1982 saw drummer Dan Shmitt replace the 2 who collaborated on this effort (Gregg Gerson of ADAM BOMB, BILLY IDOL, SKIN AND BONES & SVEN GALI and Mark Kaufman of RIFF RAFF). Keyboardist David Beck was not listed or credited on their 2nd LP although there were keys present. The band had influences of both JOURNEY & KROKUS here with vocalist Steve Johnstad showing scant traces of both Steve Perry & Marc Storace. This debut was also a lot heavier than their follow up which had much more of an AOR influence. The band would break up after "Revenge" and would reform shortly thereafter in 1985 (unknown lineup), apparently recording more material that has been unrleeased to date. Steve Johnstad would form NRG in 1986 with Rudy Sarzo, Tommy Aldridge & others and would also appear on the LOUDNESS LP "Hurricane Eyes" from 1987
