Add this to your collection as soon as possible.

This CD rocks. From "Easy Livin'" to the hit "Say What You Will" this CD rocks from top to bottom. Highly recommended.

From: Scott Date: February 21, 2002 at 8:33
Excellent CD...IMO one the most underrated Hard Rock bands of all time...Great guitar work form Fast Eddie

From: kingofdc Date: April 6, 2002 at 9:51
Still remember the first time I heard Easy Living on DC 101 in Washington, DC in the early '80s. I new rock had changed for the better. Then saw Fastway for the first time with Coney Hatch and Iron Maiden. They actually stole the show. This album will move you from beginning to end. Wore out one album, then one cassette and had another cassette stolen. Now have two copies on cd just in case. Dave King was amazing (come out of hiding in Hollyweird) as is Fast Eddie. A must for real rockers.

From: TIM Date: April 15, 2002 at 4:46
I agree with all these guys. Great stuff!

From: richierocker Date: May 25, 2002 at 14:19
Say what you will is awesome, great vocals and catchy beat

From: jason Date: June 5, 2002 at 18:00
David King had another band after he left Fastway, but I can't remember what the name of the band was?

From: TIM Date: June 5, 2002 at 20:17
Katmandu

From: T-BONE Date: June 5, 2002 at 21:29
Katmandu featured Dave King with Asia guitarist Mandy Meyer. It was an interesting cd to say the least.

From: Tony Date: July 28, 2002 at 1:31
If someone was starting a 80's hard rock collection and asked my advice, besides the obvious choices, I'd absolutely recommend this one to get. These guys do an excellent job of uniting that old school Zeppelin-like 70's sound with the beginings of that 80's melodic, riffs galore, hooks-a-plenty sound. Even at such a young age for me I remember hearing Dave King's voice and thinking "Shit now THAT'S how it's done!!!". Guitarists in 2002 would KILL to write a riff like "Say What You Will".

From: BT Date: November 1, 2002 at 14:01
The greatest unknown band ever we could only hope they have a reunion like everyone else. Dave King is singing with a band called Flogging Molly. Later

From: Rene Date: January 18, 2003 at 20:01
I still think TRICK OR TREAT from FASTWAY is their best album, but i like the other ones too. I was happy when he left MOTORHEAD to form his own band. FASTWAY killsssss.

From: RichieRocker Date: March 18, 2003 at 2:31
"Easy Livin" is awesome I just got a compliation and it has all the neccessary ingriedients for maximum sweetness. And who can forget the catchy bass and guitar on "Say What You Will".

From: BLITZKILL Date: April 25, 2003 at 8:28
Solid as a rock. This is a must for any collection! The beers will go down quick and the air guitar will be getting alot of play on this disk....one of my all time favs.....ROCK ON!!!!!!

From: BYRDMAN69 Date: May 8, 2003 at 13:46
SIMPLY PUT.........KICKS ASS! EVERY SONG JAMS, A MUST HAVE FOR ANY HARD ROCK/HEAVY METAL FAN. DAMN THAT DAVE KING CAN SING!

I think your SHIFT key might be stuck

GEEZ RENO, ACTUALLY I KINDA NOTICED THAT, BUT IT MATTERS NOT....MY POINT WAS MADE,THEREFORE BACK OFF AND GO HAGGLE WITH SOMEONE WHO GIVES A RATS ASS!

From: razor2467 Date: June 11, 2003 at 17:14
One of THE BEST albums of the 1980's....If you havent already gotten this one, do yourself a BIG favor and pick it up ASAP!!!

From: perfectstranger Date: June 16, 2003 at 8:03
say what you will is one of the best rock songs from the 80's bar none! dave king was a huge talent and eddie clarke played his ass off on this one!! also this was produced by eddie kramer who did hendrix,kiss,etc. the production is great and i blow up car stereo's with this one still to this day!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Zeph Date: June 22, 2003 at 16:28
Definitely one of the finer 80's rock bands. The people came about brilliantly at a sweet point of the rock/metal movement. Those who lived near Detroit might remember that it coincided with WRIF's (Rock Radio Station) famous "Disco Sucks" bumper stickers. Definitely nostalgia music for the long haired, jersey and jeans crowd.

From: A540 Date: January 13, 2004 at 11:24
Dave King "come out of hiding in Hollywierd?" Dave King has been jamming in FLOGGING MOLLY since '97! They combine traditional Irish music with hard punk rock. They are a huge sucess in the punk rock scene. One of the headliners on the Warped tour in 2004! Alternativ Press magazine just listed Flogging Molly as one of the top 30 most anticipated punk releases of 2004. Dave still has the vocal chops too, although they are used a little more sparingly in FM. If you have an open mind, and aren't ju

From: RJ Date: January 18, 2004 at 0:50
This is a rockin album. The song "Say You Will" should still get radio air time but does not. Can't go wrong if you wre into the early 80's hard rock/metal scene.

From: Tiago Date: January 29, 2004 at 12:56
Great album but is not the best you get from Fastway. Trick or Treat is their real masterpiece, an album that sums up all the 80īs spirit! The last albums (On Target and Bad Bad Girls) are a joke. Dave King is not there and the band changed its style. But from their debut album, Say What You Will and Heft are incredable songs. Fastway prepared all the way for the 80īs hair metal bands. They are the beginning, and, certainly, still one of the best metal bands of all time.

From: drummerfish Date: February 16, 2004 at 4:56
jerry from humble pie,fast eddie from(i believe)motorhead,and dave created a one of a kind classic album."say what" and "easy" have that classic,memorible rock riffage reconisable emediatly.too bad they didn't get the respect they deserved.a reunion would be great.i just found out here dave's in flogging molly?! what the hell...i can't believe it.

From: CAUTERIZER Date: April 6, 2004 at 21:48
Hmm...the band was founded by Pete Way from UFO and Fast Eddie...Hence the Name FASTWAY...and no mention of Pete anywhere on the creits on this site....Not sure what is up with it...something against ole pete???

From: Rockhead Date: April 7, 2004 at 4:11
The fact that pete Way left the band before recording this album probably has somthing to do with the lack of credit

From: SUPERFISH Date: May 7, 2004 at 17:53
Great hard rock album. Zeppelin via Motorhead without the silly hairband attitude. Drums rock throughout with ex Humble Pie drummer pounding the skins. Basic riffs but done the right way. Love this stuff!

From: Fizz Date: June 13, 2004 at 3:05
I just got the version with Fastway and All Fired Up on one disc. Pretty good stuff. Only drawback is Dave King's sometimes annoyingly nasal, whiny voice. I can hear where Tora Tora got a lot of their ideas from with Fastway though. The Fizz Picks: "Easy LIvin," "Say What You Will," "Give It Some Action," "All Fired Up," "Station," "Telephone," "Nonstop Love."

From: KAGE Date: June 29, 2004 at 5:25
If you wanna rock, this IS one of the cd's you want to get with Fastway. And Trick or Treat, that whole album is nothing but heavy tracks!! Dave King is now with a band called "Flogging Molly." It's a punk band, Not as good as Fastway.

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 17:48
This one came out of nowhere! Great line-up, great songs, great band!

From: Metalhead66 Date: December 21, 2004 at 15:55
See it,Buy it,Feel it Crank It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: PUCKSTER Date: January 27, 2005 at 16:35
Horrible CD, Randy Jackson & the band Zebra are SO much better then Fastway. Avoid this one!

From: Geoff Date: February 17, 2005 at 5:46
Fastway remind of bands like MSG. On one hand you have the original fans who love this CD and era of the band and hate that they sold out later in the 80's, whilst there are others like me who hate this stuff and quite enjoy when they went more commercial later in the 80's. All I hear here is an awful voice, absolutely crap, boring and forgettable hard rock songs and no redeeming features. That's my opinion, nothing more nothing less.

From: ROCKER76 Date: February 17, 2005 at 6:43
Hey Geoff, sorry that you feel that way. I thought this was an explosive debut, and Dave King's vocals were very effective. If you haven't already, check out their soundtrack record to 'Trick or Treat.' IMO that was Fastway at the top of their game. More commerical than the S/T or All Fired Up, but just killer hard rock from start to finish.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 7, 2007 at 23:32
David King became a better singer with their third album "Waiting for the Roar" and of course can be a better singer singing melodic songs rather than this bluesy rock'n'roll.Anyway the album is raw rock'n'roll with no major pretentions.6/10

From: wzcj02 Date: June 21, 2007 at 12:24
Has that late 70's , early 80's rock feel. Not especially melodic...not super heavy either.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 30, 2011 at 14:14
Adding a more specified comment,this definitely is an edgy rocking debut...pure rock with some kind of vintage feel so i agree with wzcj02...Dave King as i said,got better as a singer after this album(he reminds me of Vince Neil of Motley Crue at times and even Robert Plant in the bluesy song "Far Far From Home")..."Say What You Will" is the best track and the "hit" of this album...another goodies are "Easy Livin'","All I Need Is Your Love","Give It All You Got" & "Give It Some Action"...interesting indeed!!!.86/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: October 6, 2011 at 15:07
I too have the version with this and the follow-up on one CD, which is cool in itself. This is great, stripped-down Englishmen-playing-the-blues style rock 'n' roll (or Irishmen in Dave King's case).In a weird way, this reminds me of what Zeppelin might sound like if every song was as stripped-down and raw as "ROck 'n' ROll" or "Houses Of The Holy," from the style of the music down to the production. Plenty of romping and stomping all around, including "Easy Livin'," "Feel Me, Touch Me" "Give It All You Got," the shapeshifting "We Become One," and of course, "Say What You Will."
