Very Good Glam Rock/MHR, otra de las buenas rarezas olvidadas en el tiempo este album esta partido en 2 la mayor parte Glam Rock unos 6 cortes con ese estilo que hacia gente como Poison buenos cortes y la otra que me interesa MHR del bueno Be Yourself, Two Hearts, England You're Dead 3 Grandes cortes de hecho un album Recomendado si te gusta una combinacion de ambos estilos aunque mayormente ya sabes que encontras pero hay 3 cortes que marcan la diferencia 8.5/10.

The Grip were touted as being "the next big thing" in certain circles of the UK music press. I don't know why the band didn't happen as they had some fine material,Crush on You the lead off here is brilliant. The production maybe could've been better (sounds a little dated now)and I have to say when I bought it years ago I wasn't too impressed with the sound then, but there's no doubting the song quality. Wille joined Honeycrack who experienced a similar ride i.e. next big thing ...then nothing.

In agreement with the 2 comments above(Nick C you're spot on man!)...in fact i was living in good old lovely England when this act came out and certainly it did some fuss back then but nothing more than some recognition...the best cuts for me are "Two Hearts","When The Rain Comes Down","The Ballad Of Vera Daydream"(AORish in some parts of the song),"She Walks Out"(a mix of Thin Lizzy,The Cars & Cheap Trick ),"Be Yourself" & "England You're Dead" ( )...as my friend Rafo Phoenix said above " THIS IS A GOOD FORGOTTEN RARITIE"...my rate,85/100

I remember the band, but never once heard them. Sadly, the reason behind both of these facts is due to the fact they became somewhat of a joke in certain areas of the music press (Kerrang). As mentioned above, they were initially touted as the next big thing, then when they failed to take off, they kinda became a laughing stock. Certain writers at the aforementioned rag would often take pops at them and to this uninitiated music fan, it kinda made me not even bother seeking them out. Now in this age of youtube etc, I can seek them out and judge them for myself.
