THIS IS A OUTSTANDING RECORD THE VOCALS ARE SUPER-SONIC THE GUITARS ARE FLASHY THIS ALBUM IS THERE BEST WITH THE BIG HIT-NEVER LET U GO BUT THERE ARE BETTER TRAX THAN THAT IT'S WORTH EVERY CENT ONE HIT WONDERS

From: sygyzy Date: August 14, 2001 at 14:00
you got to check out Mike Matijevic new thing going on. steelheart.com i heard from the grape vine that he has a new album coming soon. he is the voice behind mark w. in the movie rockstar!!!! he kicks ass!!!

From: LSN Date: August 15, 2001 at 8:37
One of the best hard rock album ever released. The songs just blows you away, with the perfect harmony between the heavy guitars and the exelent voice of Mike Matijevics. The production of Iron Maidens Bruce Dickinson is alsoo perfect. This is a classic hard rock album from a band that should have been so much bigger in the world. Shame about their second album..

From: Rob Date: October 10, 2001 at 11:19
Mike has the best voice in Rock and Roll hands down! Never Let You Go gave me shivers the first time I heard it! I still listen to it all the time.

From: HERNAN Date: December 29, 2001 at 22:06
MIKE'S VOICE IS AWESOME !!....THE SELF TITLED ALBUM IS ONE OF THE GREATEST MASTERPIECES OF GLAM METAL......CHECK IT OUT !! PERU LOVES STEELHEART !!!

From: Sandman Date: January 27, 2002 at 13:25
A very good songs and a very good voice. One of my favourites records. Incredible.

From: dokken6008 Date: March 17, 2002 at 5:37
As you have already been told by everybody, yes, Michael Matijevics' voice IS incredible and that's it. There is really nothing else to rave about on Steelheart's self-titled debut, I'm being honet. The musicianship is nowhere near astounding or creative; it is standard from what you would expect from a band like this. The production is also nothing to brag about, but if you want to hear a few good songs, decent music & fantastic vocalisations, then U have come to the right place b/c SH is 4 U.

From: dokken6008 Date: March 17, 2002 at 5:38
I hate to double post, but let me also go on record that I wasn't trying to be 'cute' using those abbreviations, but rather trying to save space to complete my thought. Thank you.

From: Desslar Date: March 26, 2002 at 12:18
2 good ballads and.... not much else. Very generic and bland. Being able to scream high enough to shatter glass is not necessarily desirable.

From: Tony Date: April 23, 2002 at 3:48
Aaahh memories, memories...My GORGEOUS girlfriend in college just dug this cd & it was a great soundtrack to 'stuff'. Great melodic rock & catchy choruses. It's no 'Sgt. Peppers' but oh the memories & great times!!!

From: TIM Date: May 15, 2002 at 22:53
If I'm not mistaken, Mike sang on the 'Rock Star' soundtrack.

From: jason Date: May 16, 2002 at 16:50
Tim, you are right. Mike does sing on the soundtrack. He sings on three songs (although there nothing to write home about). I've wonder what's been up with him lately. It was cool to hear his voice again. BUT! The best thing about that Rock Start soundtrack is the fact the Zakk Wylde plays guitar and has a spot in the movie. I dig Zakk! He's pretty f#ckin' cool.

From: TIM Date: May 16, 2002 at 18:35
Yeah, Zakk is awesome. Jeff Scott Soto, Jason Bonham, Blas Elias, and Jeff Pilson are also in there. I don't know who Nick Catonese is- do you? He was the other axeman besides Zakk.

From: Reno Date: May 16, 2002 at 19:37
I think he's also in Black Label Society with Zakk, but i'm not for sure. The movie itself was fairly decent, but left alot of open ends. The soundtrack was good.

From: TIM Date: May 16, 2002 at 20:28
I don't believe it covered the most shocking aspects of the industry. Like you said Reno, it had some 'open ends.' The movie was based on Judas Priest's story. By the way, Trevor Rabin of Yes fame wrote the musical score.

From: jason Date: May 16, 2002 at 22:05
Reno, I know you don't give two shits what I think, but I am pretty sure that Nick Catonese has nothing to do with B.L.S. I have all their albums and I couldn't find his name anywhere. I have seen Zakk live and I have looked through my CD's. Zakk doesn't have any side kicks. He is the lone axeman. I bleed Black Label. Check out the new B.L.S. album '1919-Eternal.' It's really good!

From: Reno Date: May 17, 2002 at 0:06
I'll agree with you jason on that. I haven't got off my ass to go get it yet, but I've heard ome of the tracks and so far they're pretty good. I got that info on Nick at this website a while back. It says Black Label Society's Nick Catonese on Guitar. Who knows?http://www.rockstarsoundtrack.com/

From: TIM Date: May 17, 2002 at 8:13
I found a video last night on Ebay that said preB.L.S. and on the description it said see Zakk and Nick live. He's the only one I figure it could be unless you all know someone else named Nick. I need to send a question to the seller and ask him.

From: jason Date: May 17, 2002 at 11:27
When I looked through my CD's the only Nick that I came up with was Nick Bowcott. I don't know that name and as far as the other Nick goes, I could have overlooked him when I skimmed through my CD's. You two are more than likely on to something. As for me,........................no, I won't say it. I'll just end up pissing someone off.

From: Reno Date: May 17, 2002 at 19:51
If I remember right, Nick Bowcott was in Grim Reaper

From: TIM Date: May 17, 2002 at 22:19
Your opinion is invited too jason. I just want to know who Nick Catonese was with because the curiousity is killing me. Surely he was fairly important to be amongst such high-powered talent.

From: jason Date: May 18, 2002 at 1:44
Nice call Reno! I can't back you on that Nick Bowcott was in Grim Reaper, but you got your thinking cap on! As for Tim, don't let it keep you up. Truthfully........It's not that big of a deal.

From: Reno Date: May 18, 2002 at 3:57
Check Grim Reapers page on here. Nick Bowcott was the guitarist. I remember the video for the song Rock You To Hell. The lead singer looked like a cross between Elmer Fudd and Meatloaf and was missing some teeth.

From: TIM Date: May 18, 2002 at 8:51
No, it's not. I was just curious. Anyways, the guy with the video said Nick Catonese was with BLS, also with Zakk in Book Of Shadows, the rhythm guitarist in Rock Star and also in the cover band. As you probably figured, I haven't listened to BLS yet. I get so many cd's in per week that I'm unable to listen to some of my items for long periods of time. I buy tons of items off of Ebay. In fact, I have quite a few which I need to list on this site.

From: Altay Date: May 18, 2002 at 11:25
' couldn't find anything about steelheart in my area(it's fuckin' normal if you're livin' in turkey).' met with mike's great voice when ' saw the movie.he's great(also the tracks)we all die young is his song,and stand up&shoot is written by sammy hagar.by the way i am sein' that you're arguing abour nick.nick is b.l.s.'s stage player,all the guitar parts played by zakk on record so it's normal that you can't find nicks name anywhere in the cd.he plays 2nd guitars,we can call him a part of b.l.s.

From: jason Date: May 18, 2002 at 11:59
I saw Zakk & B.L.S. live and I'm trying to remember if there was a 2nd guitarist. Hmmm...........I really can recall. What I do remember is that a CAN of beer was $4.00 (can you believe that shit!). That sure as hell didn't stop me though.

From: T-BONE Date: May 18, 2002 at 15:41
I hope to god that it was either very good or very strong beer for that price! I remember an interview in either Metal Edge or another associated magazine for Zakks Book Of Shadows cd and Nick Catonese was mentioned in the interview. It's no big deal either way. Maybe he just would rather sit in the back and rock out on his guitar and stay outta the spotlight.

From: Altay Date: May 23, 2002 at 9:02
maybe you were too drunk jason.=)

From: T-BONE Date: May 23, 2002 at 12:53
jason is not under the alchafluence of incohol like sum thinkle peep!!! He's only had teen martoonies occifer. Oops...two martineeez.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 1, 2002 at 16:17
Awesome album, highly recommended, The falsetto voice and the guitars are top-notch. The guitar solos are blazing and the catchy grooves are contagious. Buy it anybody who loves rock music will love this album.

From: ajil Date: June 7, 2002 at 15:41
i love steelhearrt

From: RichieRocker Date: July 9, 2002 at 21:14
I just procured the Rock Star soundtrack and it kicks ass. I like Jeff and Mikes voices both, I wish Steelhart would make a new album really soon. It was great to hear from Mike finally.

From: RichieRocker Date: July 9, 2002 at 21:40
Yes Jason I just got the Rock Star soundtrack today and its awesome.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: July 13, 2002 at 16:08
This is another album that I bought when it 1st came out and the cover has been changed. The cover that I have shows a picture of a steal mill. Again, I don't know what the reason is for the change?

From: David Date: July 13, 2002 at 18:30
I also have the steal mill version of this cd! (Freaky)

From: T-BONE Date: July 14, 2002 at 4:18
The 2nd version of this cd was printed with a pic of a leather and Rhinestone jacket that a fan had made for Mike Matijevic.

From: Der Pink Panzer Date: August 19, 2002 at 16:41
This is a fantastic album! Frank DiCostanzo and John Fowler (both formerly in the band Rage of Angels) lay down a brutal rythym section while Mike Matijevic's vocals soar. If you love 80's style guitar driven metal with great production, you'll eat this one up!

From: zakar Date: August 23, 2002 at 12:24
nice album. it rocks and scream

From: Curtbum Date: September 9, 2002 at 16:13
All i have to say is f.u.cking amazing. This band is by far one of my greatest discoveries. Although i dont own this cd the songs on it kick some ass.

From: nitrodoll Date: September 9, 2002 at 17:16
WHAT A VOCALIST.... amazing.. anyhow, i bought this disc after seeing the video for 'everybody loves eileen'..and i loved this album immediatly when i heard the other songs... this is really a kick ass disc...it ended in my top 10 of 1991, this i remember.. nitrodoll1974@hotmail.com

From: robert Date: October 23, 2002 at 19:57
me encanta! al mas puro estilo SKID ROW, incluso con mas ca'a!

From: izzy Date: November 4, 2002 at 18:28
theyre the shit!! i cant believe theyre so DAMN underrated!!

From: Daniel Date: November 5, 2002 at 4:31
She's Gone is still a timeless classic ballad in which nobody in this world can write and sing the way Mike Matijevic does. It's still ringing in my ears even after a decade!!! Angel Eyes is also another great track by them!!! Great job there... nowadays' music really can't hold a candle to the rock that kick so hard back there... ROCK ON!!!

From: Gar Date: November 14, 2002 at 1:14
'I'll Never Let You Go' has got to be one of the greatest power ballads ever. This album is worth getting for that one song alone, however the other songs are above average as well. A good addition to anyone's collection.

From: MUTHA TRUCKA Date: January 19, 2003 at 2:17
MIKE NEEDS TO WORK ON HIS RANGE A BIT. SIKE. HE AND ERIC ADAMS OF MANOWAR TWO GREATES SINGERS IN THE HISTORY OF HARD ROCK/METAL. THAT IS A FACT CAUSE I SAID SO.

From: Yin Date: February 16, 2003 at 13:55
Greetings from Malaysia.. Steelheart really kick ass! 'She's Gone' and 'I'll Never Let You Go' gotta he the best song ever with the incredible vocal! Go see 'Rock Star'!

From: Rocker65 Date: March 7, 2003 at 18:53
Yin: In Rock Star There is no SteelHeart.. Its Steele Dragon (We All Die YOung is great song)... Well I only listen Angel Eyes (which is one of my favourite songs at the moment) and Mama Don't You Cry (also Good but not so good as Angel Eyes). ma Question is: Where can I Find album from Steelheart with this song (Angel Eyes). Singer - Mike Matijevic is very talented!!

From: yin Date: March 15, 2003 at 6:47
Shortly after Frankie's death, I received a phone call from an old friend and producer of my 2nd album Tom Werman. He asked me if I would be interested in performing the vocals for the movie 'Metal God' which was later retitled 'Rock star.' I became the voice of Mark Wahlberg. I sang eight songs for the movie, one of which was 'We All Die Young', which was off the 'Wait' album. hmmm.. that's off SteelHeart's homepage..

From: Yin Date: March 15, 2003 at 6:53
Rocker65, it's in this album, track #4 'I'll Never Let You Go'

From: Van Alan Date: April 7, 2003 at 3:42
'Where can I Find album from Steelheart with this song (Angel Eyes).' Angel Eyes is the chorus of 'I'll Never Let You Go' on the above, self-titled CD. The CD also has a different cover with a Factory on the artwork. On the babk of my copy the song is actually titled 'I'll Never Let You Go (Angel Eyes)'.

From: RichieRocker Date: April 7, 2003 at 11:48
Van Alan! The album we are commenting on has that song your looking for bro! Song #4.

From: Delkker Date: June 7, 2003 at 15:56
This is one of my fav cd's. The voive of michael matijevic is one of the best voices i've ever heard.You can feel the energy of this album since the first song and then if you listen the 2 ballads ( I'll never let you go & She's gone ) you will want though that we still living in the 80's''''

From: rocknrollpat Date: September 5, 2003 at 21:54
The first lp was the best it kicked ass it had amazing gutair leads high octave vocals it still rocks after all these years.

From: jasmine Date: November 18, 2003 at 11:34
I think in my heart that their song ballad ''She's Gone'' has touched my heart and my soul. Mike's voice was FANTASTIC. I was blowing away when I first heard the song of I'll never let you go. It was a dream for me. And He sang more emotiomn then he had ever sung before. I can feel his effort. And i think thsi disk rocs the hell out of me!

From: Jasmine Date: November 18, 2003 at 12:33
Hi ya all! I feel so nervous that my 18th b-day is coming up. And I think when I heard She's Gone on my computer. I began to sing along. I am a good singer too. And The song I'll never let you go was very emotional for me. I sang the ooh part of that song. And I sang the solo chorus part too. And emotionally I believe that ''I'll Never let you go is one of my 1st favorite power ballads I had ever heard in my life. Also in my heart right now that when i sang ''She's gone on my computer. I try to

From: Ric Date: January 25, 2004 at 19:37
This C.D is another must have 4 me!!Kicks serious ass!!Matejevic is an amazing voice,I don't agree with the guy above about his voice being the only good thing about this C.D.The guitars are nice and Bruce Dickinson did a damn nice job!!Also if U ever fall in love'I'll never let you go' can't be passed when the subject of best ballad comes up in discussion.It's worth it trust me!!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: January 26, 2004 at 8:01
Ric, this is not as good as Mr. Mister, mate ! Pointless hardrock is what we get here ! One ear in, out the other. No memorable songs at all, like McQueen Street ! Not exactly real bad, no, but so formula-made hardrock !

From: Blue Charvel Date: January 26, 2004 at 9:46
Mr. Mister? Geez Freddy, your more of a lightweight than I thought. Unmemorable? Perhaps for you, but I think 'I'll Never Let You Go' is something a lot of people would disagree with you on. Personally I prefer the rockers on here, Risola's a great guitarist.

From: MJ (Marla) Date: February 8, 2004 at 14:56
Never in my life have I heard a voice like this! The man is beyond amazing. Favorite is (of course) 'I'll Never Let You Go'....love the bump and grind tone of 'Sheila' and 'She's Gone' is just a classic to me. 9.9999999/10 lol

From: Border Rat Date: May 6, 2004 at 8:44
This cd is brilliant and I have the one with the steel works on the booklet.The vocals plus the outstanding guitar solos make this cd a must have.She's gone is an incredible ballad along with I'll never let you go.The hard Rock n roll,Gimme gimme and Down n dirty are real air guitar songs with brilliant guitar solos.Anybody who does'nt like this record needs their ears cleaned out.The cd is in the elite bracket make no mistake about it.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 15, 2004 at 3:55
I agree with one of the earlier posters, sure this guy can sing like no other, but it's the songs that count. And for every 'I'll Never Let You Go' there are two turds such as 'Sheila' and 'Gimme Gimme'. 3/10

From: elink Date: June 24, 2004 at 5:59
'...forgive me, giirrrllll....!!!' She' Gone - Steelheart : - best intro (esp. the piano) - best drums (esp. 180 degrees rounding drums at the end of this song) - best lead guitar - best lyrics (simply but very emotionaly) - best best song - and of course best vocal (salute for you, Mike) no song like this !!!!

From: Mj Date: July 4, 2004 at 7:53
Great Album!

From: Metal Jay Date: July 31, 2004 at 14:06
Am I correct in assuming that the cover with the steel mill was the first cover and the other cover was the second? One of my favorite albums. 'Never Let You Go' is tied for my favorite song ever with 'Don't Close Your Eyes' by Kix.

From: Richierocker Date: August 24, 2004 at 13:47
Mike Matijevic has a wicked unbelivable voice!! One of my favorite frontman. This album is complete with melodies, hooks, blazing in your face powerful guitars and the drums and heavy hittin'. Good production also which makes the album a lot better obviously. Pick it up if you can obtain it.

From: TIM (2) Date: August 25, 2004 at 6:42
Ok I know I'm encroaching on hard rock territory here, but if they release a ballad as a single then expect to get all types of fans buying their stuff. One of the worst 2 or 3 albums in my collection this, really poor tuneless hard rock with whining vocals that really get on my tits (especially on 'I'll Never Let you Go'). I still really like 'She's Gone', but stick these songs on The Scream album (or any other great hard rock album) and they're all filler. 2/10.

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2004 at 8:05
Some very strange comments here. People seemed to have missed the excellence of this CD. Stellar one million dollar production job, drums like weapons and a voice that gets a little high sometimes, but an amazing voice either way. 'Love Ain't Easy' is the ideal anthem opener, 'Can't Stop Me Lovin' You' is my favourite - a perfect melodic rocker with a huge chorus, 'Like Never Before' is great commercial rock, 'Everybody Loves Eileen' is an amazing commercial rocker that is irrisistable,

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2004 at 8:07
'She's Gone' is a memorable and superb ballad of massive proportions. Try to tell me Mike didn't feel every word he sung on this one! I am amazed, because whether the people here like it or not this is a superbly played CD and the vocals are not to everyone's tatse, but awesome. I guess it comes down to songs and I'm amazed people don't dig what's on offer here - at least the first half! Now I know how AOR Freaky must feel! 2/10 - that's insulting, Tim (2)! IMO, great CD!

From: AOR freaky Date: August 25, 2004 at 8:42
I'm with TIM (2) on this one ! He says it right : poor tuneless hardrock, made hundreds times before and mostly better. I can listen to it, but it does nothing at all for me ! No Geoff, once again I have to disagree. Where is the melody ? And the 'singing' of Mike is not what I call great ! Irritant ! Weak, very weak album ! But still better than BW or HS : 4/10 !

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2004 at 8:57
Where is the melody? I'm not really sure. It's certainly not in the abundance of massive, soaring choruses, or the beautifully structured verses with musical prowess all over them, the killer musicianship displayed from song one to the end or the at-times-a-bit-irritating-but-mostly-deeply-passionate voice displayed on the album. I don't really have any problem finding melody written all over this one. Guess I must just be lucky!

You are SO right Freddy, we are in total agreement! It is MUCH, MUCH better than Brett Walker or Honeymoon Suite.

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2004 at 9:12
I love it Blue Charvel! These days I'm sinking as low as AOR Freaky by continually retaliating to his utter nonsense, but I'm glad to see there are still some poets on the board enjoying themselves. Nicely done, I like it alot!

From: Blue Charvel Date: August 25, 2004 at 9:23
Thanks Geoff! As you've most likely read in other threads, I have very bad taste though... Actually this thread reminds me how much I like this disc, I'll have to grab it and put it in my car for awhile.

From: TIM (2) Date: August 25, 2004 at 10:00
Sorry Geoff, didn't mean to offend anyone. This is not really my thing, as if it's hard rock it has to be highly melodic (i.e, Adrian Gale, PC69 etc) for me to really dig it. But this did nothing me for me at all, ended up flicking through most tracks. I gave it a point for the production and one for 'She's Gone', but that was all that kept my interest...

From: AOR freaky Date: August 25, 2004 at 13:20
Ha,you finally seem to know it, Blue Charvel ! It took a damn long time before you saw the light ! But as they say : better late, than never, my friend !

You mean about it being much better than Brett Walker or Honeymoon Suite?

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2004 at 21:52
No worries Tim (2), and you certainly didn't offend me. I was just a little puzzled, as I am when you say you need for hard rock to be very melodic for you to like it. I feel exactly the same and I absolutely love Adraingale and PC69 (One of my fave bands ever), but how either of them are any more melodic than Steelheart is beyond me. Adriangale have a lot of straight aheard hard rockers along with the melodic gems. To me, all 3 are excellent melodic hard rock bands...

From: paul rock Date: August 28, 2004 at 16:31
Due to this site i bought this one, and i must say, it's a truly hardrock classic.

This, for one, is not the thinking man's rock band. But on the other hand it is indeed melodic and does have one of the best vocalists to come from the hair band era. The musicianship is tight and production crisp. 'Can't Stop Me Loving You', 'I'll Never Let You Go' and 'She's Gone' highlight a real good hard rock disc. Not a must own, but a notch below classic.

This album is a classic, simply put. Some say leave the word classic for 'popular' releases, but I'm using the word to describe the album's overall quality. With the simply breathtaking ballad 'She's Gone' to the anthemic power ballad 'I'll Never Let You Go', to the Whitesnake-esque 'Love Ain't Easy' and the other well abover average rockers 'Can't Stop Me Lovin' You', 'Everybody Loves Eileen' and 'Sheila', this is an absolute must own for any serious fan of 80's rock and melodic metal. 9/10

I know one...Pyn Siren, has a singer (Danny Mariano) who sounds like a mix between Sebastian Bach and Mike Matijevic. Get their album 'Slave To Your Master'...it rocks!

From: Eric Date: November 4, 2004 at 14:19
One of the best vocal albums ever made. Another band that could not get past the grunge movement. To bad as they deserved so much more

Me da igual lo que diga la gente.Realmente a mi este disco me parece la leche! la voz es acojonante y las canciones (a mi) me parecen todas bestiales sobre todo la ultima. Si realmente te gusta el hard rock de finales de los 80 cojetelo,creeme. 9/10

hes fucking good no one else does it better than mike

From: StarCity Rocker Date: March 9, 2005 at 9:43
I totally agree with Kip's 8/29/04 post where he nails this album. This is a must-have for 80s metal fans. Matijevic's vocals simply soar on this, and Chris Risola can shred for real. Power ballads and anthems abound w/ zero fillers. Can't go wrong with this one and it's pretty easy to find.

From: marcopaulo Date: May 2, 2005 at 17:36
FUCKING HELL!!!! HOW THAT SON OF A BITCH SINGS!!! - this mike matijevic must have lungs of iron!!!! nothing to do with the next album, you hear this and you hear the next album and you wont believe the difference - this is DEFENATLY steelhearts best work done! AAAAUUUUU!!!

From: metalalways Date: March 8, 2006 at 11:06

From: metalguf Date: April 21, 2006 at 4:59

From: BIG-TIME Date: August 17, 2006 at 16:00
ARGHHHHHHHHHHHH I LOVE THIS ALBUM, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT...oh did I say I love it as well. I wanna be Mike, oh do I wanna be him.........

From: rockhardrock Date: March 13, 2007 at 19:18
Mike has a great voice-he can sing so high that i just cant understand if this is posible.I like both albums, but this one is just a little bit better than the one that follow next.My favs:'angels eyes'(very beatiful ballad),'everybody loves eileen','cant stop me loving you' and 'shes gone'.Check also their next release.

From: sluss528 Date: March 13, 2007 at 19:32
have to disagree with the above comments. this disc is ok at best! the next cd tangled in reigns blows this cd away!!! the songs are heavier and the production by tom werman is spot on. bottom line i punted this cd on ebay and listen to tangled on a regular basis. i give it a 6/10 sluss oooooooooooout!

From: shotgun messiah Date: July 21, 2007 at 12:14

Pretty average CD, IMO. I only liked Can't stop me loving you and Love ain't easy. The rest were just fillers for me.

From: Steve Price Date: December 9, 2008 at 16:01
Still one of my favorite cd's of all time!!!! AWESOME stuff.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: January 14, 2009 at 17:43
Decent albun of hard rock including the good ballads. [Everybody love Eileen] My Favorite Song

From: WookieEnthal Date: August 30, 2009 at 2:10
There are a few good songs but other than that, it's pretty forgettable. I'm not a big fan of ballads and that seems to be the strong point of this disc. 30/100

From: hair metal again Date: March 10, 2010 at 1:09
words aint enough for this hair metal masterpiece.amazing release by STEELHEART with great sound ,astonishing guitars and screaming vocs.the songwriting is excellent and i cant ask for anything more.'cant stop me loving you' is simply one of the best songs ever heard in my life.i was 15 years old when i bought this and it stills sounds so fresh to me.perfection

From: BICHOAOR Date: April 23, 2010 at 0:39

Love this cd...such a classic!!! But i love all of the Steelheart stuff. The new one rocks too. Yeah some fans just cant wrap their heads round it but i think its a phenomenal comeback.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 18, 2011 at 17:54
Brilliant solid debut with killer songs everywhere and with a fantastic vocalist/frontman Mr Mike Matijevic!!!...one of the best voices in the bizz but somehow underrated..."Love Ain't Easy" is a blast!,"Can't Stop Me Lovin' You" excellent!,"I'll Never Let You Go" & "Everybody Loves Eileen" both great ,"Sheila" is a killer ballad wherever u put it,"Rock 'N' Roll (Just Wanna)" yeah it rocks! & "She's Gone"(another killer ballad)are songs that will remain as Hard Rock's finest moments...one hell of a record 4 sure!!!.95/100

From: rocksoul Date: March 4, 2011 at 13:04
One of the best album in that year. Voice is amazing. Hear she's gone.....only, awesome. Mike matijevic could have been voice of Velvet Revolver, with him slash & co. could been better that they were with grunge's voice. Don't you think???? Listen him in movie Rock star.....really kick ass, Matijevic but also other great voice JSS

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: April 25, 2011 at 18:28
Were it not for Matijevic's seemingly sucking on birthday balloons between takes, this CD is pretty mediocre. They don't do anything Firehouse didn't do better on their debut from the same year. Songs like "Can't Stop Me Lovin' You," "Love Ain't Easy," and "Everyone Loves Eileen," are good, and I've always thought "I'll Never Let You Go" was one of the better power ballads of the time. But goddamn! Okay, dude, we get it, you can hit high notes, now give it a rest! After a while (a short while), it gets grating and redundant, and seems like it's done just to show off. It's like the hair-metal equivalent of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey or Celine Dion: overly dramatic and just plain irritating, and ends up holding back a disc that's already held back by several very average songs. I gave it a 60 because the second half is pretty much a waste.

From: 123charpenay Date: October 16, 2012 at 12:31
their best record.others are very average.this album is one of the best hard rock realise ever.the singer is simply extraordinary.steelheart deliver a superb and fantastic melodic hard u s at a very hight level."she s gone" is maybe the best ballad never written and played by a hard rock band.album varied pleasure guaranteed .all songs are excellents.big big record, so no fillers only killers.i recommand the japan import cause there is "she s gone" in live version.wow!!!the song that you need if you want flirt with girls (it will be easy).good luck guys.

From: edwithmj Date: October 5, 2013 at 9:00
I got this after hearing the ballad I'll Never Let You Go which I thought was decent at the time. Unfortunately, the rest of the album is amazingly mediocre and I still can't get into this years later despite listening to it several times in an attempt to get into it. Love Ain't Easy is a hookless wonder with meaningless lyrics - an awful opener; I'll Never Let You Go is an OK ballad but the acoustic introduction makes me think it will turn into something a lot better; Everybody Loves Eileen is OKish too and I can't remember how the other songs go because I find them too forgettable. The guitars are OK but the vocalist reminds me a lot of a more polished Jim Gillette from Nitro, which is definitely a bad thing as they both needlessly sing too high for too long. Average at best.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: June 5, 2017 at 15:52
Given the gift of hindsight, it was a record like this that killed off the music we love, as surely as Nirvana, Pantera, pop-country, or whatever other factor you want to take into account. Here are a group of reasonably talented musicians and a completely over-the-top singer, with a collection of songs carefully calculated to check all the boxes. We call this hair-metal, but really, it has more in common with glossy AOR. It's like a more histrionic, mostly keyboardless version of Alias. In other words: AOR dressed up in metal clothes to pander to a younger audience. Even when the band tries to get all low-down and dirty and bloozy on "Sheila," the results lack conviction, partly to a very generic song and not helped by the production tha thas every instrument reverbed from here to next week. THe rest of the disc follows suit. These are prom songs, gooey love stories robbed of any edge, the only element of danger being the chance that Matijevic's voice might split your head wide open.
