When I saw King Kobra had released a new album, I was pretty skeptical about getting my hands on it. After that abomination known as "Hollywood Trash," I was pretty well convinced that this band would never do anything worth listening to again. However, when I saw the personnel listed -- King Kobra's original members, minus vocalist Mark / Marcie Free, replaced this time around by former Rough Cutt / Quiet Riot frontman Paul Shortino -- I figured it was at least worth a try. Well, I'm pretty glad I took a chance. Prototypical 80's hard rock tunes and the combination of Sweda & Phillips are still, in my opinion, one of the best guitar duos in hard rock music. It's nothing compared to KK's first 2 albums, but it's still pretty sweet. Shortino fits in pretty well here.

From: Axe Slinger Date: April 20, 2011 at 8:22
I was one of the biggest KK fans in the '80's and couldn't believe that a new disc was coming out with one of my favorite singers of all-time, Paul Shortino. I held my expectations down since it had been such a long time that they had all worked together. This is a fun disc in places but has some problems. The lyrical content is one and some vocal harmonies are not in tune in places. They sound rushed. Production is great and there are a couple of killer tunes mixed with a lot of decent ones. I really hope they do another disc as I like all of these musicians and followed each of their individual bands over the years. 83 / 100

i do agree with the above statement.....this time king kobra back to its roots......80's hard rock......get it get it!!!

From: rocksoul Date: May 16, 2011 at 5:24
I like very much this one. I remember mark free's voice, but shortino is on other line. On this one there are great song. I would soon an other release for confirm that good they did for this one, and I guess they will a really good job

From: Hysteria87 Date: June 2, 2011 at 13:11
Great cd,my favourite release of the year so far,so 80's melodic rock yet so now!Rock this house,Turn up the good times & my personal fav Tear Down The Walls(with its bonfir sword & stone sounding riff) are fantastic.Love to hear shortinos voice and this reminds lots of the QR'88 cd in many ways...top class stuff 92/100

No Mark Free on here, so minus points straigh away, although Paul Shortino does a good enough job in filling his shoes. 'Thrill Of A Lifetime' is still their crowning glory, albeit a flawed one (majorly in places), so if you are expecting 'TOAL' part 2, then go elsewhere, as this new one is in no way, shape, or form, up to the standards of some of the songs off that. There are some good moments featured, 'Live Forever' and 'Fade Away' are particular highlights but too many average ones.

From: Kim HP Date: July 24, 2011 at 17:28
Spot on Jez, "Live Forever" is one of the best tracks but overall this is pretty average. Of course, Paul Shortino is an excellent vocalist and that makes it listenable despite the so-so songs. Decent hard rock.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 23, 2011 at 21:44
An edgy return of KK with Paul Shortino on the Mic duties(former Rough Cutt/Quiet Riot)...enjoyable album that delivers melodic Hard Rock with some touches of Hard AOR here and there...my faves are "Rock This House","Live Forever","Tear Down The Walls","Midnight Woman","Screamin' For More","Fade Aawy"(nice) and the japanese bonus track "Red Flags"...a new beginning for KK that with Paul Shortino will have like a second breath ...92/100

From: andi Date: February 6, 2013 at 15:28
Canīt find any great song....a cheap version of House of Lords!!

From: titothetitan Date: May 18, 2018 at 10:52
Great production, some nice songs and some fillers. 'Live Forever','Tear Down The Walls', 'Fade Aawy', 'Crying Turns To Rain' and 'Red Flags' are the highlights. Overall this is an average album. It's not the same KK we used to know. But it's miles away better than the horrendous "Hollywood Trash".
