|This is there best album in my opinion!, worth buying just for the song RED ALERT.
||Date: August 9, 2001 at 7:46|
|this is a true 80's rock album one of ther best by far
||Date: November 16, 2001 at 9:46|
|"And now ladies and gentlemen we present metal band bonehead corner"...Stomp your hands, Clap your feet?...come on guys...there's more to hard rock than this. Buy a Queensryche album.

|THIS IS THE BAND AT IT'S BEST IN THE 80'S GREAT SONGS HERE
||Date: April 16, 2002 at 23:04|
|This is my Favorite QR cd. Sign Of The Times kicks your ass and Winners Take All is a great ballad. All 10 songs rock!
||Date: April 22, 2002 at 23:04|
|I really enjoy this album. Mama Weer All Crazee Now and Sign of the Times are my fav's, although I like the rest as well.
||Date: April 24, 2002 at 12:10|
|Fantastic, almost as good as the first. Should've stuck with the original lyrics for "Winners Take All."
||Date: May 19, 2002 at 16:24|
|Great guitar work by Carlos and great vocals its a close tie between this one and metal health
||Date: June 9, 2002 at 21:33|
|Hey, they did it again! Well, why fix what ain't broke, right? If a Slade song worked on the first album than why not the second as well. Proof right here that your local cover band can make it on someone elses music.
||Date: June 23, 2002 at 16:04|
|I can't pick between this CD and the first one, but this is a great album. Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there. Lots of fun to listen to (gotta love 'Stomp Your Hands...'). Sign of the Times is another fave too. Then again, not too many duds on this album.
||Date: June 23, 2002 at 16:19|
|I agree with everything you just said ThunderDan. Carlos Cavazo is an awesome guitar player and he really shines in the song"Bad boy" good album worth checkin out.
||Date: March 3, 2003 at 21:43|
|In some ways this is a better album than METAL HEALTH. The songs on this are consistantly good throughout, whereas METAL HEALTH had some real throwaway songs on it ("Let's Get Crazy" comes to mind). However, this one doesn't have the can't miss smashes that METAL HEALTH did. I wouldn't say this is a must have album, but you won't regret buying it.

|one of the most underated bands ever, and don't deserve to be called a one hit womnder.
||Date: October 17, 2003 at 3:08|
|The best Quiet Riot album, very consistent every track is strong and different. Carlos shreds great on this album and frankie is one of the best drummers in rock. May not have sold as well as Metal Health but is a better cd. Check out tracks Like sign of the times, Party all night, Red Alert, Bad Boy (my favorite) and We were born to rock the ultimate rock song, Listen to the drums in the end, total metal. Jay from Australia.

|I love this album. I'm past 30 and I still play it (now on cd)loud and proud, play it at home, the car. My wife and kid go to the mall when I play till my speakers blow up. Not every song is an A+ in Condition critical. kevin's screamin' vocals on the songs Condition critical and scream and shout are simply ...Krrazy!!!

|I first heard "Sign of the Times" in 1984, played on the BBC Friday Night Rock Show, in England, by DJ Alan Freeman. I bought this CD in New York City during Xmas 2003, just for this track. Hell that's nearly 20 years later, and it still sounds great compared to a lot of "modern" rubbish around today. This track shows what these guys were capable of producing. Carlos Cavazo is a great rock guitarist. Guitarists get all the praise so credit to the other band members as well. Rocktron in England.

|This album, despite of how succesful "metal health" was, is as good as "metal health" album; even, could be better. Songs such as "scream and shout" and "we were born to rock" are explosives and make me turn the volume the loudest. Other, like "red alert" and "bad boy" are different, but, and the same time, very good. Quiet Riot has a special meaning to me ´cause 20 years ago it was my favourite band. I´m from Bogotá, Colombia. South América. "firstname.lastname@example.org".

|Before listening to this album,i thought how good this album might be considering metal healthwas so damn good. But never would i thought this album is that good. Every one of the songs kick ass and just pure metal perfection. The only songs i don't like is winner takes all. I don't think a ballad suits kevin's voice. Thet should leave the ballad stuff to bon jovi,white lion,dokken,scorpion or dokken who are much better at those stuff. BUT OVERALL THE OTHER SONGS ARE GREAT.RATINGS:9.5/10

|Another fun album from QR, fav's being "winners take all" and "red alert". I didn't like the slade cover one this one.
||Date: July 25, 2004 at 22:16|
|They keep the same formula as 'Metal Health' and it works. Kind of. "Sign Of The Times", "Winners Take All" and "Condition Critical" are good hard rock songs, but here the Slade cover "Mama Weer All Crazee Now" could've been left off. Lightning doesn't strike twice.
||Date: December 3, 2004 at 0:35|
|Great one!!! This is what the times were all about when this came out. Not much of a change from previous release but it wasn't broke, so they didn't fix it.
||Date: May 31, 2005 at 13:51|
|An underrated gem. The only bad track would be "Winners Take All". As mentioned before, DuBrow's voice just isn't suited to a ballad. "Scream and Shout" and "We Were Born To Rock" are probably the best of the disc. I still can't believe that "Party All Night" was named an all-time worst metal song by VH-1. 9.5/10 for me.

|Saw them live on this tour in my country Venezuela and i remenber clearly they were around 12 thousand souls in the venue!!!...my God the band was huge at that time!!!.This album is even more round than their Metal Health one."Sign Of The Times","Party All Night","Stomp Your..." & of course their second Slade cover "Mama Weer All..." are amazing songs!!!.95/100
||Date: December 3, 2009 at 17:01|
|The best QR album!! Party All Night is one of the best songs ever!
||Date: February 5, 2011 at 13:59|
|This one is my second fav.record by quiet riot. I like slade's cover mamma weer all crazee now even better than their greatest hit cum on feel the noize. the band here is still melodic but a bit less heavy than on metal health. other songs I like here: sign of the times, winners take all, party all night and we were born to rock.

|after metal health it's hard to come up with another classic but this is close it sticks to the same formula as mh and the songs aren't bad just no big bombastic anthem but sign of the times,party all night,winners take all and the title track are gems good album don't listen to the knockers

|excellent release for QUIET RIOT trying to remake the Metal Health recipee just 1 year after !this is somehow annoying but besides that everything glows with the band seems capable to write down easily anthemic hard rock songs and the musicianship being very good!Condition Critical stands proud and helped the whole scene explode a couple of years later

|Very similar to Metal Health. Not just that it's a bad record but otherwise well produced and good metal
