|I SEE THAT SOMEONE I TRADED THIS CD TO POSTED IT HERE, SO I'M GONNA MAKE A FEW COMMENTS ON IT. THIS CD I VERY HARD TO COME BY. I LIVE NEAR THE CITY THIS BAND IS FROM, AND I'VE ONLY SEEN LIKE 3 OR 4 CDS IN LIKE TWENTY YEARS. THESE GUYS USED TO PACK THE CLUBS BACK IN THE DAY. TOO BAD THEY NEVER MADE IT BIG. A FRIEND OF MINE KNEW THE BAND, AND HE TOLD ME THAT AFTER THE BAND QUIT, THE SINGER WENT TO NASHVILLE AND WENT COUNTRY. ANYWAYS, THIS CD IS PRETTY GOOD AND BELONGS IN ONE'S COLLECTION. IF I EVE

|Yes, this cd was really good. When I saw it, I kinda thought to myself....what kind of cd is this? Then I played it one night at work, and I was amazed. Really good vocals.

|EXCELLENT indie in full-on, straight ahead 80s hard rock style.Not really an exact comparison, but musically they are pretty similar to Dokken, and vocally, Glenn Delaune is GREAT! This badboy looks like it's getting a re-release soon if you venture to the Gangster website at: http://www.gangsterusa.com/ plus you can download 7 full songs from the band there, including their tribute to their late guitarist Pat Bearb, 'I'll See You Again'. Great band, and Glenn Delaune is a super nice guy.

|This is a solid hard rock indie, but I didn't think it was anything special. Its just average to me. Time To Change is a really good hair metal ballad.

|the guy you paid 76 dollars for this cd are you on crack you can get the cd right from the band site for less than 15 dollars,buy the way good rockin cd.

|Thanks for the heads up on this one Long Haired Joe!!

|The ones on the bands website are cd-r's , not orginials, according to my info. So $75 for an original is not a bad price if you are a collector and want the real thing, email me if you want a cd-r for $15, I will make ya one! lol!
||Date: April 10, 2005 at 9:34|
|info wrong dude just talked to the singer,they are not cd-rs,nice try .
||Date: April 10, 2005 at 16:49|
|We'll see when these are available what they are, let us know when you have one in your hands, then I will believe it. Still the ones sold recently on ebay are the only originals that were left, they changed the back cover and disc artwork on the new re-issue, so the originals are different! If you like re-issues, knock your self out!!

|I'M SORRY TO SAY PEOPLE THAT THE REISSUES ARE CDRS. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL AND THE REISSUE. THE BACK OF THE CD IS GREEN NOT SILVER PRESSED. THE INSERTS ARE REDESIGNED AS WELL. THE ORIGINAL HAS A PHOTO OF THE BAND AND THE LYRICS. THE REISSUE HAS NONE OF THIS. THE GOOD THING ABOUT THE REISSUE IS THAT IT HAS SOME NEW SONGS ON IT DEDICATED TO THEIR LATE BAND MEMBER PAT BEARB. PEACE!!

|I knew these were going to be cd-r's, thanks craig for the confirmation. I had 3 originals for sale, and they were all spoken for, then the news of the reissue hit and every one of my guys who had spoken for it, backed out. I told them they might regret it, since alot of bands do the cd-r thing nowadays. Looks like I was right, I make some good cash on those originals, now they are long gone. This cd is killer in my book, it has the vocals, the guitars, just kick ass all the way around!

|I BOUGHT THE REISSUE JUST TO GET THE EXTRA SONGS. I FIGURED IT WOULD BE A CDR, BUT I BOUGHT IT ANYWANY. MANY BANDS DO THE CDR THING TO GET THEIR MUSIC OUT BECAUSE IT'S WAY LESS EXPENSICE. STILL IN ALL ITS THE MUSIC THAT COUNTS. THE ORIGINAL IS PRETTY HARD TO COME BY. THIS IS A VERY GOOD CD, AND WORTH HAVING. ORIGINAL OR REISSUE. PEACE!!

|bands that release cdrs have no business sense. collectors do not buy cdrs. it is cheaper to manufacture a silver disc than a cdr. no collector is going to buy this cdr even with bonus tracks.
||Date: May 2, 2005 at 18:01|
|Just Got my copy from the website. It Wasn't a Cdr. Rock On.
||Date: May 2, 2005 at 19:18|
|they are silver cd-rs, not originals. the band says they are cd-rs!!!

|Re: the comments about business sense and that pressed discs are cheaper than CDRs. This is true if you know that you will sell at least 500 or 1000 units. I can get pressed discs with 3-color on-disc printing, with a 4-page full color booklet, color tray card, in jewel case and shrinkwrapped, delivered for less than $2.00 per unit... if I buy 1000 units. That still means shelling out almost $2,000 up front. Some people cannot afford that. If you have no idea how many you will sell, then CDRs are not necessarily a bad idea. This should be disclosed to prospective buyers however.

|This Cd was reissued by the group with extra tracks to boot and looks like it's not a CDR. Anyway a very good CD. Bye the way they have another CD titled "I'll See You Again" and also a very good CD.

|Average Hard Rock CD At best. I have heard better. For die hard collectors who have nothing better to spend their money on. I got mine for $10.00 (not worth $75.00 IMO). Similar to Dokken but the singer does hit high notes which makes it a bit annoying at times. Saving grace is the guitar playing buy Pat Bearb. Rated 7/10.

|Jeez, I was left completely unimpressed by this. The ballad, 'Time to change' was pretty cool, and the rest wasn't too bad, but just your standard sort of hard rock/metal. I actually thought there were elements of CC Deville in the solos. That said, this doesn't sound like Poison at all. IMO, this is average hard rock/metal, and your collection could easily do without it.

|*********************************Aunque usted no lo crea, Gangster se formó en 1979, por ende son mas antiguos que muchas míticas bandas que hoy conocemos, pero no fue hasta el 92 que lanzó este bien disfrutable cd titulado “Rock and roll hitmen”, e interpreto que se ha hecho re-edición. Ahora, fijándonos en este redondo, si hay algo que me gusta de cualquier cd que escucho, es que la primera canción me vuele el cerebro (en ingles, kick my ass), cosa que sucede con “machine gun lady”.

|Lógicamente, cuando uno va a comprar un disco, ya sabe lo que va a escuchar, al menos una que otra canción, o ya leyó que se parecen a tal o cual otro artista. Pero para mi siempre fue mas divertido descubrir y encontrarme con sorpresas (gratas en su mayoría, chascos de vez en cuando). Ahora, mejor aun cuando uno descubre que hay mas de una canción que me gusta, mi política es: si tiene una canción, vale; si tiene dos canciones buenas, tienta mucho; si tiene mas de tres tracks que me gustan,

|lo compro sin pensarlo.Gangster seria compra directa.El estilo que abarca Gangster es un clásico hard rock,con voces medio agudas creo que con ciertos aires a la voz de Don Dokken, y riffs que generan cierta densa atmósfera como en “Children of the world” que tiene una onda un poco mas progresiva.Para los que de casualidad tengan la edición original de “Rock and roll hitmen”, esta trae 3 bonus tracks que complementan lo que por suerte no hace falta en esta producción: mas temas buenos,gracias.

|Gangster es una excelente banda que se formó y separó 3 veces en 27 años, y sacó uno de los mejores discos que he escuchado últimamente, y si los escuchas te van a volar la cabeza, aunque usted, no lo crea.... ********************************Lucas H Gordon
