|I have waited for this moment for more than ten years. When I heard their first single on Swedish radio 'Riot in Everyone' I couldn't believe that song was made year 2005. And when I saw the promo video it almost made me cry in happiness. This is sleaze for the 21st century. You can hear the influences from the 80s but they definately have their own sound. If you're a fan of sleaze, glam or hard rock you should definately buy this record.

|Make no mistake, CRASHDÏET is Glam Metal at its best! If I didn't know any better, I would have thought this album was made in the late 80's - yes, it is that good! Totally blown away by songs like 'Riot In Everyone', 'Queen Obscene', 'Out Of Line' and the next single and video 'It's A Miracle', I must say that this is the best glam release in more than 15 years! I really get goosebumps listening to this melodic, yet aggressive and asskicking form of Glam.

|Take a look at their three amazing videos at the site www.crashdiet.org ** These boyz are enjoying massive success in their home country, and they are even played on MTV! The L.A scene did not die in 1990, it just packed its bags and moved to Sweden! Oh my God this is a 10/10 Buy buy buy!!!

|Wow! Checked the bands website after reading your reviews ... this totally rocks. Breakin the Chainz is fantastic....I'm definately adding this as a priority on my wanted list for immediate purchase when the old money situation improves!!!!

|This band its great. This is pure GLAM METAL (not glam rock), very much influenced by WRATHCHILD UK. This guys sent me a long tima ago a demo and later i ordered a single by the band but now i still have to buy their cd. I dont know why i am waiting???? I am going to buy it, CRASHDIET together with LOUD´N´NASTY are two of the best GLAM METAL BANDS AROUND ON THIS MOMENT. HAIL TO GLAM METAL FOREVER.

|Well I've had this for over a week now and it's been played to death. I originally thought Knokk 'em Down was the wrong choice for opening song as it's a little slow BUT it has a great groove to it. The following three tracks are total classics and rock like crazy. The band have some good backing vocals kind of reminiscent of Leppard or Treat, but that's where the similarity ends. I haven't found any filler yet on this killer release, and it's worth getting the Jap version for the extra songs.

|ESPECTACULAR PIECE OF WORK!!! i am one VERY happy glam rock/metal fan living in portugal right now!!! i just hope more bands like this show up and have a lot of success, the fans really apreceate it! oh, and about this cd, i think everyone who has posted their message here must have the same opinion as me, so LONG LOVE GLAM!!! this cd was the best 15 euros i spent for the last months! lets hope that grunge stays dead and buried for good. :COOL:
||Date: November 5, 2005 at 17:03|
|Wig Wam and now Crashdiet!!!!!!! I really hope that the great GLAM is back!!!!!!Rock'n'roll forever!!!!!!! For all the alternative/grunge guys: TAKE A CRASHDIET!!!!!!!!!
||Date: November 16, 2005 at 22:23|
|Holy shitballs! As noted above, this is probably the best release of it's kind in 15 years. The first 5 songs are like a demonstration of how to record perfect slabs of sleaze metal. I want to mention them all seperately, but they're all so awesome. 'Riot In Everyone', 'Queen Obscene/69 Shots' & 'Needle In Your Eye' are probably my faves... that is until the brilliant 'It's A Miracle' hits the speakers. Brilliant track. Amazing riffs, songs and vocals, reminds me of Shotgun Messiah. Killer disc.

|YES, its a MUST for everyone who likes Glam and Sleaze, and I really hope that this will bring some new fans of the music we love, and at least let me say THERE ARE some very talented NEW GLAM Bands in the scene, check out BASTARDZ - No Ass no Pass Album, this guys from Brasil and CRASHDIET RULE !!!!!!!!!!!!

|I would change my username if there was more bands like this one, Crashdiet proves to me that 'old school' hard rock hasn't died! Yeaah! Rock on forever!!! The 80's are back!!!
||Date: February 5, 2006 at 20:11|
|Unfortunately Dave is dead... too bad that the band's carrier ended in such a way... they were the leaders of the new 80's hard rock era but now it's over... RIP Dave you were a gifted frontman... The other guys from the band said that they won't continue as Crashdiet... Let's hope that they will come up with something good again...

|Wow!! Talk about a killer Glam/Sleaze cd. Crashdiet Rocks big time. I have had their demo for a while now. But now I have the Japanese CD version with bonus tracks and Videos. They had the looks and the hooks.Just listen to Knokk 'Em Dead, Riot In Everyone and Breakin'The Chainz.The is first rate Glam the way it is suppose to sound like. It is sad that Dave has passed away. They could have gone a long way. If there is a cd to be bought it is this one. Rest In Sleaze, Dave. Rated 10/10.

|Another shock for my weak heart.Another band who pulverize the 900f indies’and many popular names,too.what can I say?Awesome sleazy and maybe the best release since a very long time.Personally I consider”knokk’em down”,”Riot in everyone”and”It’s a miracle”already cult top songs and the rest is killer,too.Wow,after wig Wam another incredible surprise only the day after…12/10 also here.Hey guys,I’ll wait your second cd hopin’in a pure bomb like this one!!!

|This album is really a must have for everybody who likes Glam/Sleaze! This is the best release in a long long time!!
||Date: December 25, 2006 at 23:16|
|If most other glam/sleaze CDs are like Fords, then Crashdiet is a Ferrari, in a class by itself. If you look at a hair metal menu and crave something with loud guitars, huge hooks, catchy choruses, & big backing vocals, then this band would be what you order. When it comes to Crashdiet, the phrase 'there's the best, then there's the rest' comes to mind. These guys are indeed the best, and sleaze-metal fans should be as satisfied as a wall-eyed virgin after a one-night stand with Jenna Jamison.

|Wow amazing album easily the best glam metal album of the last 15 years this is a classic already. This album deserves to up there with the likes of Appetite For Destruction, Out Of The Cellar and Skid Row as the greatest albums of the genre.

|Riffs potentes como la inicial 'Knokk 'Em Down' o corasos como en 'Riot In Everyone' tienen TODO, gran producción y demás, tú mismo. Si esto es SleazyGlam pues es de lo mejor que he escuchado en muchísimo tiempo. A lo Skid Row o Ratt. La pinta es lo de menos.. Muy sugestivo ese título, a sabiendas que el cantante murió poco después.. 'Rest in Peace'. 9.5/10 a todo volumen ehh.. Saludos.
||Date: January 14, 2007 at 16:59|
|I can`t believe why this album`s so high-rated. It sucks!!! If you want to hear really great glam/sleaze so listen to acts like PRETTY BOY FLOYD, SHAMELESS, NASTY IDOLS, JET BOY, SEA HAGS...but Crashdiet is totally overrated!!! (1,5/10)

|First I was only a fan of Crashdiet, but then i actually got to know them all as friends. Very sadly, Dave chose to leave this world january 2006. A year later they performed live in Stockholm with their new singer and they kicked ass. I was truly blown away by the new song they played. I've heard some more demos, and you won't be disappointed I promise you. I think a new record will be out later this year!

|Great Hard Rock/Sleazy Rock album, Glam mis bolas muy en la onda Skid Row, Shotgun Messiah(con mejor voz)pero actualizados 9.5/10. Un disco que se convertira en clasico con el paso del tiempo.

|Sadly, I didn't discover this band until Dave Lepard had already passed away, but BOY am I glad I checked the band out nonetheless, because REST IN SLEAZE is a classic slice of '80s style sleaze rock! I honestly didn't think they made 'em like this anymore. 'Riot In Everyone' is the best Skid Row song that Skid Row never made, if you catch my drift. Apparently the Crashdiet guys are set to carry on with a new singer, and I wish them the best of luck!
||Date: April 3, 2007 at 4:31|
|Like many of you I have been a fan/collector of glam/aor/hard rock for over 20 years. I grew up with Crue, Poison & Pretty Boy Floyd. I own and cherish bands like Tryx, Big Bang Babies, Ana Blacks etc. This is the true successor to those great bands. This is the real deal. How it was done by guys who were 9 years old at most when that scene was alive and well is amazing. This is truly one of the greatest glam releases of all time. BREAKING THE CHAINS is a classic! 10+

|Hola Alberto! ya veo que has hecho los deberes! así me gusta, que seas aplicado jajaja, ya te lo dije que son muy buenos, aunque no son Skid Row, tienen su propio estilo y mas le hubiera gustado a cualquier grupo de la época, hacer un tema tan bueno como 'riot in everyone', te recomiendo que veas los videoclips, sino, ya los veremos el viernes en el Camarote! see ya! Saludos a toda la peña! que buenos discos están saliendo este año! Me he comprado el recop. de Strangeways, Rox Diamond y demás...

|Just when you thought the corpse of glam/hair metal had rotted away to maggot food along come CRASHDIET to dig it up and pump it full of steroids giving us 35mins of sleaze that prime time Motley Crue would be proud of. Standout cuts are plentiful but my faves have to be `riot in everyone` and `breakin the chainz`. Without doubt the most essential hair band of the last 15 years. 90/100

So many nights I lay alone, awake,writhing in agony praying for some young kids out there to find each other; write something special; grow their hair; and create the comeback albm that is going to send the spiraling ball of fire rollin' and growin' and hopefully come tumbling down the Hollywood strip killing the emo's, barroling down MTV studios blowing them up, and exploding into the scene reviving a whole new retro

|I love to see old Hard Rock bands returning to the plate as well as excellent newcommers like crashdiet bringning back the Hard Rock nowadays .I am a total Hard Rock / Metal freak, same as I was back in 80's and 90's when MTV dictated the death for the Hard Rock and crowned the Grunge as the new king, suddenly everything thet smells like guitar riffs, spandex and hair was stupid and laughtable !!! but he re were are 15 years later and , where is the Grunge ??? who is still alive ?? yes the Hard Rock is still alive, but why the Hard Rock survived the Gringe and MTV ayyack ?? the answer is easy Hard Rock / Metal has and attitude, a vibe and a musicianship that grunge never never had. Simply in music business the cake belongs to the real musicians ...... So where are those who made fun of the hairy bands ???? Who is really the dead Mr Seattle.
||Date: April 28, 2008 at 15:20|
|When I first heard a song of this band I thought "What is this??? How is it that I haven't heard it before??? I know -all?- the 80's sleazy / glam" Easy and surprising answer: They recorded it in this century. Unbelivable...maybe there is a real chance to bring back music to earth. Ah, by the way: Buy it - NOW!
||Date: August 19, 2008 at 20:11|
|3 outstanding songs in "Chains" "Miracle" and "Riot". The rest is aldo really good but not really near thoose 3 mentioned. Really good album though with quality all the way trough.

|Crashdiet Rockz it's cool that they're still young new fresh sleaze glam bands still making CDS espically nowadays when mostly all you hear is either Grunge or Nu-Metal or Rap Metal or Alternative CRAP it sucks that Dave Lepard commited suicide RIP Dave i love the songs Knokk'em Down, Riot In Everyone is a very cool rebellious song Queen Obscene/69 Shots is cool Breakin' The Chainz rules!!!!!!!!!!!!
||Date: July 10, 2009 at 1:12|
|I still don't get the hype with this band. It has some 80's elements to it but it is wayyy too modern for me...it's like Blink 182 with a heavier sound. Even the worst 80's band is better than these guys. Try Crazy Lixx or Crossfire...they blow these guys away.

|a pure masterpiece for CRASHDIET and for me is probably the best album a new band released in the new millenium and a release that could do for hard rock genre what GNR did back in 87 under the strong promotion of a big company of course!sleazy glam hard rock with a strong 80 s reference but with their own style without being copycats and most important with that enormous young feel that hatd rock is all about!essential and a milestone in the history of our beloved music
