|First off I dig these guys and really root for them. That being said what's strange to me is that these guys individually are such great musicians but can never seem to get it collectively together in the songwriting department. Listen to the lyrics in "Slam Dunk" and tell me you don't cringe in embarassment a little? But get this album if not just for the playing alone. The remake of "The Wild & the Young" left my jaw agape with the musicianship on it.

|Pretty Boy Floyd also did the song Slam Dunk as a bonus track on their Leather Boyz cd. The music is pretty good on this cd, but some of the lyrics are very cheezy.

|These guys are anything but quiet, but they sure are a riot to listen to. According to frontman Kevin Dubrow, "Alive and Well" was viewed as something of a comeback album for the band and what a comeback it is. Personally, I think it's the band's best to date, mainly because "Angry" & "The Ritual" are the greatest pair of rockers this band has ever penned. Nice to see that some bands never abandoned their 80s-metal roots. Yep, this CD definitely proves that true hard rock is alive and well.

|I agree with above comments... 'angry' and 'ritual', as well as 'alive and well', are the best songs. The second half of the new songs aren't that great. and yes, 'slam dunk' is pretty cheezy / bad.

|This is an improvement over Down to the Bone, but a bit uneven. Alive and Well, Slam Dunk, Against the Wall (sounds like a Rhoads era QR Track), Highway to Hell, and the Japanese bonus track The Wait are all quite good, but the other new songs are dull and forgettable. As for the re-recorded tracks, the acoustic Never Let You Go is very cool, but the others pale in comparison to the original versions. A missed opportunity.

|Played the hell out of this when I first got it. Still listen to it now. Songs are pure, uncorrupted hard rock in the same style of METAL HEALTH. True, some of the songs are 2nd rate, but there is some really good stuff here. I'll even forgive them for ripping off UFO in the middle section of "Don't Know What I Want".

|The new tunes are all brutally heavy, (while still very polished!), so the traditional fans should have no trouble liking these songs - now featuring Rudy Sarzo on bass. The remakes however are a little less likely to impress. They are a little glossy for my liking. Still, they are my only complaints - over all, not a bad release, but probably for die hards only.

|A great album. This album is the soundtrack to a turning-point in my life! There's a lot of meaning in the lyrics here! "Alive And Well" is a must have for any Quiet Riot fan and hard rock/metal fanatic!!!!!! ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

|This is a very good 80's style metal album. Track 5 should have been really excellent, but was ruined because the band could have been more selective in their choice of words, rather than use "arse" and "shit". We don't need that. This album could have been great and way up there with some of the best, but QR need to eradicate the use of idiotic words from their lyrics. Other than that, the sound is typically QR, bright and lively, and all the tracks are very good. Rocktron from England.

|Actually the song Slam dunk was written for Pretty Boy Floyd & originally appeared on the soundtrack to an Ellen Barkin film called Switch (I think it was called) around 89/90 but was later added to the Leather boyz album. For my money the song suited PBF better than QR,but this album overall is very good!

|Very complete album with new "versions" of some of their classic stuff plus a nice cover of Ac/Dc.A real come back after the quite dissapointing "Terrified".90/100
