Hey everyone... A friend once taped me Stripped on the same tape as Tony Harnell's Morning Wood release. And although I love the MW songs, this absolutely rules! A great acoustic disc rom the early 90s(when that trend was popular for hard rock bands to do) that is great for driving late at night when you really don't want to hear anything that impossing...and hey, anyone who wants to cover Queen's "39" can't be all that bad, can they! :-)

From: Kim Date: August 20, 2001 at 12:53
I absolutely hate acoustic cd`s, but this one is great. Great selection of tracks and the singer sounds fantastic. TOP GUN

From: Vic Date: December 15, 2001 at 2:13
Possibly their best CD....Ronnie Atkins voice suits this genre to a "T". A great date CD as chicks love it!

From: Dragonfly Date: December 16, 2001 at 18:29
A different twist to some of their hits. It works well. They're great both ways. I think that Thin Lizzy's Please Don't Leave Me was better on Sin Decade.

From: d.a.n 69 Date: June 26, 2002 at 12:52
sorry dragonfly,but please d'ont leave me is by john sykes of whitesnake

From: Desslar Date: June 27, 2002 at 17:28
Sorry, but this bored the heck out of me. Kept waiting for it to rock, but no luck. Future World is much better.

From: david Date: August 16, 2002 at 9:37
sorry dan69 but please don`t leave me is by john sykes and phil lynott thin lizzy. John sykes only played on 1987 album from whitesnake and in that disc isn`t please don`t leave me.

From: P.C. Date: September 29, 2002 at 14:54
I love this great one ... and still waiting for STRIPPED II.

From: MADMAX Date: August 24, 2003 at 23:07
This is so boring!! u can find better slow ones everywhere..

From: Scandinavia Date: September 6, 2003 at 11:16
"Too Late.." & "Savage Heart" are the only tracks that get me moving on this one...Last time I saw them perform they actually did "39" live...That was cool! You should have heard the sing-along from the audience..Amazing!

From: GlenRavine Date: March 17, 2004 at 14:56
Not bad at all - very entertaining - still think along with PC69 - one of the most underrated bands. Great stuff.

From: R.S. - Rocks Date: May 3, 2004 at 19:20
"Savage heart" is great. Much better version than the one from "Jump the gun". The rest is boring.

From: BWH"Indonesia" Date: August 24, 2004 at 8:35
Incredible album.

From: Geoff Date: August 24, 2004 at 22:42
I was a bit worried as this was my introduction to Pretty Maids, and did not love it. But I perservered and purchased the rest of thier outstanding collection, and can now view this one as a break in the heavy and very melodic brilliant routine. I like this album a lot. Very well played and proving the band's worth with a lighter sond that usual. Great songs. I love 'I'll be there' and the reworkings of other tracks, and 'Say the word'. Great album by one of the best bands ever!

This was the first cd that I ever picked up by these guys and I loved it. You couldn't get it out of my car's cd player even if you had the Jaws of Life. "If It Ain't Gonna Change" and "Savage Heart" are my favs. Man was I suprised when I started picking some of their other cds. They are just an awesome band. I loved everything on this cd.

Gran banda,una pena la falta de apoyo de las disqueras. Si tienes los acusticos de Frontline o de Whitesnake no deberia de faltar este en tu coleccion. Una o dos que no me convencen pero en general a la altura de sus buenos trabajos. Lei que tenian ya 6 nuevas canciones y un nuevo baterista, esperemos que vuelvan pronto y que saquen de una vez un DVD.

From: juan carlos Date: March 18, 2007 at 10:19
Gran album (semi)acústico. Todo muy profesional con un Ronnie Atkins en plena forma para esto de los acústicos. "Please Don't Leave Me" de los Thin Lizzy está excepcional y "Savage Heart" es otra excelente versión de ellos mismos.. Temas que recuerdan lo básico, osea a los Beatles.. En la versión Japonesa vienen 9 temas, no están "39" y "Heartbeat From Heaven" pero si "Far Far Away". Corto el tiempo del disco pero muy bueno que como dijo Beto con un par que no convencen. 8.8/10

From: z4roxx Date: April 1, 2007 at 9:31
