Got this yesterday listened to it and it kicks some serious ass they returned back to the sound of their first Rest In Sleaze CD they picked the right guy to take Oliver Twizted's place the title track Generation Wild really rocks some kick ass guitar playing if you like Crashdiet's other stuff you'll love this.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 18, 2010 at 22:50
Great Melodic Hard Rock/Sleaze Hard Rock, another winner this 2010, totally agree with Metalalways "Generation Wild, Rebel, Save Her & Bound To Fall" my fav tracks, the bonus are good too, the new singer is very good, one of the best bands in the new millenium, 90/100.

From: shoemaker Date: April 24, 2010 at 10:17
Frontiers Records fished a fresh big one. In the face melodic hardrock with big choruses. Great album SKID ROW meets DEF LEPPARD. One of the best bands in the last ten years.

From: shoemaker Date: April 26, 2010 at 5:56
Hey Mr. Vain this make no sense!!! If everybody downrates albums in the top 100 cause he donīt like the position of the album/band, we would have no objective results in the end. Using this tactics I would downgrade 80% of the albums even good ones like CASANOVA or DEFCON, cause they are not in my top 100.

WOW - Big surprise this one. Always steared clear of this band for some reason, but after lots of positives, decided to take a punt on it. Certainly glad I did, as this is a fantastic sounding disc, with some really excellent songs on it, and not the weak sounding 'Cheeze Fest' I was expecting, like you get with alot of the sleaze bands (imo of course). I have read lots of Skid Row meets Def Leppard comparisons, which sound good to me, especially on some of the backing vocals which are absolutely spot on throughout. Love the songs too,opener 442/Armaggedon kicks your ass big time and 'Bound To Fall' is another highlight, although I will say there are no songs so far that I don't like. Sound is huge, songs are great, so nothing really negative to say about this at all - I even prefer it to the Crazy Lixx disc (which was also a pleasant surprise). Now to check out the previous 2 Crashdiet albums which I (shamefully it may be said) missed first time around.

Absolutely awesome album. Impossible to fault as there is not a weak song on here. I'd say 'Native Nature' probably has the weakest chorus on the CD, but arguably the best verses. So how do you pick a weakest song? You don't. You just love everything about it. 'Save her' is probably my favourite track, and something a bit different from Crashdiet. Elsewhere, 'So alive', 'Rebel' (what an explosive riff!), 'Down With the Dust', 'Bound to fall' and the great closer, 'Beautiful Pain' are my faves, but so are the rest. I love it all. Amazing riffs, sensational songs. I love their other two albums, but imo this is their best and most consistent CD so far.

Honestly the new singer is good, fits better than Olli, but i think this band is losing it here on this album, The first half of the album is great it really smokes (Armageddon, Rebel, and the title track are highlights), but the second half there is just something off about it. The intro of Native Nature just screams Uncle Tom's Cabin, and the song Chemical is way too happy to be about the subject matter. This album unlike their two previous has some blatantly obvious sound alike riffs from the 80's heyday. Also the lyrics get too wordy sometimes like on the song Beautiful Pain. It's an ok effort from these guys but i know they can do better. 85/100 from me best songs: Armageddon Generation Wild Rebel Down With The Dust Bound To Fall

One of the finest bands ever.2 of their 3 discs are killer.It's hard to make 2 albums like these but the guys have an immense potentiality IMO.Only the middle album is painful,I sincerely don't understand why.Great music here and very close to their awesome debut cd.9,5/10.

From: firetruckdriver Date: February 26, 2011 at 23:12
Excellent group! Sleaze glam is alive and well! Folks are pretty accurate in seeing some of Skid Row in these guys, but I also see a bit of Nasty Idols and Shameless possibly. Yet, still, they have a uniqueness about them too. Can't go wrong if this sub genre is your thing, which to me is about my fave along with power metal and classic metal. I hope these guys get some exposure and pick up a huge fan base. They deserve it!

From: Kralli Date: May 3, 2011 at 13:05
Definitly their best album! The debut had the amazing trio (Riot In Everyone, Breakin' The Chainz and It's A Miracle) and the follow up had a few really good songs but too many lame ones also, and a singer who does the job but not fits perfectly. With this one they really naile it. The radio hit (In Sweden anyway, Generation Wild) is actually one of the weakest songs and that says alot. What is a bit unexpected is that two of the best songs are the slower ones, Beautiful Pain and Save Her. But also So Alive, Native Nature och Chemical deserves to get mentioned.

From: rocksoul Date: June 13, 2011 at 1:16
Very great album and great band. I bought this one and reast in sleazy. For my opinion the first one is more slezy, rough but wild generation is very great. Their second I don't know. In this ""awesome"" place called italy there is not only one radio or tv that I can hear these bands.....for example new whitesnake release was fade away, and I say: whitesnake.....and here there is one of the most important label for hard and melodic rock. Long live rock n roll!

From: CMGio Date: June 24, 2011 at 2:33
Don't get me wrong, Crashdiet was great with Dave Lepard (R.I.P.) and the incarnation with "Olliver Twizted" wasn't half bad either, but I think this is Crashdiet's best record by a mile. The perfect blend of sleaze, aggression and melody.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 9, 2013 at 19:48
A kicking a** album obviously,a bit less stronger than the last couple of releases but still it manages for us to say a "HELL YEAH" word!!!...best shots for me are tracks 2,3,4,5,7 & 10...then if you listen to the bonus tracks such as "One Of A Kind","Fear Control","Caught In Despair" and "hollywood Teaze"(superb!)you're gonna be screaming 4 more...yep!...recommended...88/100

From: Japangea Date: July 3, 2015 at 23:41
Motley Crue moved to Sweden and started to live seriously.....-ish sound.Nice.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: July 28, 2016 at 17:12
Crashdiet were hailed as the new saviors of rock 'n' roll at various times in their career. Here they are on their third album, with their third singer (first guy killed himself, second guy was that goofball in Reckless Love). This is pretty good stuff. Not as aggressive as some of Hardcore Superstar's stuff, but they don't indulge their Def Leppard impulses as much as Crazy Lixx. The sound is big enough to sound professionally recorded, but not overblown '80's huge. The vocals are a little too smooth and guitars a bit too technically precise to be really sleazy, as that's a word I tend to equate with rougher, sloppier music, but good songs are good songs. The lyrical theme of an army of rockers conquering the world in the title track is silly and outdated, but goood songs are "Armageddon," "So Alive," "Rebel," "Save Her," "Chemical" and "Bound To Fall."
