This is a very good album, full of shredding and the vocalist is very good aswell.

Like a good cookie, crunchy and delicious. I still miss Bruce on the second guitar though...but overall, just smokin'. I reccomend this to anyone who likes monster riffs and killer chops. Just straight up METAL, makes you want to raise your fist with the devil horn thing happenin'...

AS A FAN OF THE BAND FOR OVER 17 MOONS, IT'S GREAT TO SEE THEM PUTTING OUT RECORDS. EVEN IF THESE GUYS DON'T TOUR THE USA DUE TO THE CURRENT MUSICAL CLIMATE. THE FACT THAT THIS BAND WASN'T PICKED UP BY A "MAJOR" LABEL & WERE ROTTING AWAY IN MIKE VARNEY'S SHARPNEL RECORDS IS A TRUE INJUSTICE. A MUST FOR FANS OF TRADITIONAL HARD ROCK & HEAVY METAL(I.E. JUDAS PRIEST, DIO, MAIDEN). WHILE THE BAND HADN'T RECORDED TOGETHER IN YEARS YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT BY HEARING THIS SLAB OF MOLTEN METAL!

I think this is good, but "Superheroes" is GREAT.

Can't really pick any weaknesses here. There are a couple of instrumentals for the purists out there and a stock of shredding and solid riffing, a great rhythm section, no ballads at all and more metal than you can poke a stick at.

From: Chrisconsin Date: January 21, 2004 at 3:02
Truley a work of art. Its a change from there "Street Lethal" album, but maybe for the better??? But no matter what this album ROX, great cd for road trips!!!

From: Dean Date: September 17, 2004 at 22:19
Awesome, awesome, awesome album-full of the shredding that you knew Paul was capable of but never heard once he joined Mr. Big. Jeff Martin's vocals also shine on this disc. Songs are well crafted and not merely a vehicle to show off. And it's not like Scott Travis ever lets you down on drums esp with Paul's superb production. Killer. Way to go guys.

I imagine Racer X's die-hard fans are really quite fond of the band and proud of their ability to be consistent at what they offer. Again you have another riff-heavy collection of metal for your listening pleasure. This is probably and very slightly my least fave of the collection, but I still enjoy 'Bolt in my heart', 'Fire of rock', 'Miss mistreater' and the quite melodic and enjoyable 'Poison eyes'. 'Snakebite' contains a killer riff too and is another highlight.

From: Metal T Date: June 4, 2021 at 1:03
One thing that made this one essential is the fact that they finally put out a studio version of the awesome 'Poison Eyes'.The kick ass tune from their 'Live Extreme Volume II' record...Charvel is right though,Bouillet is missed on there.
