Their first and their best ! Special sound, very original. Only the production could be better (a bit thin), but all in all, a very fine release !

Always know who Riot were. These guys put out some great tunes, worthy of highest music status. Unfortunately one of the most underrated bands in the history of rock.10/10!!!

One of the first Riot albums I listened to. This one is an all time classic that still gets played quite often.

Cool debut album of a band that changed its musical direction from a classic Hard Rock with some pomp moments without keyboards in it to a later on straight forward Heavy Metal/Power Metal sound..."Warrior" & "Gypsy Queen" are my faves...some other good ones are tracks 1,3,7 & 9...80/100
