This album smokes from start to finish. Memory's Garden blows me away. Eric's vocals take some getting used to, but a very powerful band.

From: Kim Date: August 19, 2002 at 13:06
No comments just a lot of smiles. This is a killer. TOP MUSIC.

Easily my favourite CD - there aren't the words to describe how good this is. It's criminal that Trouble never got the recognition they deserved, and as for that 'glam' tag, read the comments above...

this is a great band, one of the best i ever heard. it is criminal that trouble never did get the recognition they deserved. will they ever get back together to record? i'd like to know what they are doing now. memorys garden was a classic!

TROUBLE's best album in my opinion. They seemed to really make an effort to push themselves into the mainstream with this one(unfortunately it didn't work). Their earlier albums were very Sabbath-inspired, but this one shows them straying away from standard heavy metal and introducing a more accessible hard rock style. It works well. Their next album PLASTIC GREEN HEAD was similar in style, but not as good as this one.

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 2, 2004 at 16:20
Not as doomy or Sabbath-y as previous recordings, this is best described as a 'hippie metal' album. Very psychedelic in sound, yet still totally kickass. If Jim Morrison had composed a metal record, it might sound like this. By the way, Trouble are recording again and a new album is expected in 2004. I can't wait!

Lots of memories from the 90s,lots of inspiration out of this album,very rich in harmonies,very heavy,very well written,I cant wait till 'Seven' comes out...thanx Trouble

Reminds me of the great old rock/metal songs of the past such as 'Summertime blues', 'House of the rising sun (Frigid Pink)', 'In-a-gadda-da-vida','Mississippi Queen', etc...with one great exception, the above songs were the only decent ones on the discs! Not so with this album, from start to finish this is a killer album. Doom meets late 60's/early 70's rock/metal. Well worth tracking down.

From: hair metal again Date: September 2, 2011 at 11:52
fantastic heavy rock release by the mighty TROUBLE back in 92 when the hair metal movement ruled the planet!with MANIC FRUSTRATION they tried to be a little bit more commercial ,but unfortunately they didnt make it!for me this is perfect from every aspect and it has a monsterous sound.guitars and vocs are unique and the songwriting amazing.there isnt such music anymore
