Existing comments about this CD

From: Rockhead Date: March 5, 2006 at 4:38
Whilst Head On had some excellent songs (Hard Times, Vice Versa, Hammerhead etc) this album was by far the most consistent IMO. Riding With The Angels (Russ BVallard) was a monster track as was Earth Mother. I saw the band at Reading supporting this album and they were awesome (except for the papier mache drum cage). Production is excellent and as an album it has more consistency than previous releases

Very good album with a pre Iron Maiden singer in here(Bruce Dickinson)...I have the album "Head On" on vinyl so a.s.a.p i'll spin it again to see Rockhead's point of view about it...anyway the Russ Ballard cover "Riding With The Angels" is far the best cut of the album IMO plus "Earth Mother","Nice Girl","Go To Hell"(catchy)& "Bright Lights"...85/100
