Okay..I'll do the first comment.....Axe was a great band...and the song "Rock and roll party in the street's is an underated rock and roll anthem....Probably not many remember the song , but It should be worth a listen to any rock fan and I wish I had added it to my collection..Awesome song..

Finally, Offering on CD.

From: Shoemaker Date: April 12, 2002 at 14:07
Axe is one of the best Hardrock bands ever. All their albums are great, only the latest "The crown" is a bit weak. Offering in my opinion is the best album, check out "Burn the City down" itīs a killer!!! I saw them live last year, they rule.

From: koogles Date: June 29, 2002 at 19:07
"Offering" is the best place to start if you're new to this amazing Florida band. From the Journey-like AOR of "Now or Never" to haunting tracks like "Steal Another Fantasy" and "Silent Soldiers", this is a start-to-end winner. "Rock and Roll Party in the Streets" is what Bon Jovi would have sounded like in 1982. I love this CD. It captures the early 80s hard rock sound and feel to a tee. BRILLIANT!

From: Reno Date: June 30, 2002 at 0:24
Actually koogles, when I heard Rock-n-roll Party in the streets for the first time, I thought it was Bon Jovi. I heard it around the same time as the 7800 Ferenheit album came out. I kept taking my cassette and looking for the hidden track that some bands put 30 seconds after the last song on the tape. I was pissed that I couldn't find it and called the music store and they told me who it actually was. Hey...I was 14 and the internet was unheard of at that time!

From: Gar Date: July 16, 2002 at 17:22
"Offering" is almost a perfect album. The songs range from AOR to classic metal. Axe were a very under-appreciated band. Check out "Jennifer".

From: Steve T Date: July 29, 2002 at 7:46
KILLER album. For '82 this has some heavy duty production too.

From: Kim Date: August 10, 2002 at 2:47
Hi group. Just want to share some good experience with you. I have with success found some cool stuff on the German version of Ebay. Usually the cd`s there are only listed in Germany, and that limits the visits on the auctions. I recently bought DAD-Live In Osaka for 34 EUR-32 Usd. Thats usually sold on Ebay for 60,- USD. Lots of cool stuff beeing sold there. Try AXE. Black`n Blue 1 st is on sale at a good price too.

One of the truly greatist masterpieces of music for all time.One question,where can I get the video for Rock N Roll Party in the street?

From: iaffprofireman Date: December 30, 2002 at 3:26
This is a really good album. And R&R Party In The Street, WOW, what a great song! Don't get me wrong, I'm not judging the whole album on just that one song, pretty much all the songs on this one are good. But R&R Party.. is what a "rock anthem" should sound like! This is a terrific group. If you haven't yet, check out AXE 5 also, it is a good one!

From: Melodiker Date: February 7, 2003 at 15:48
Buy or Cry ! 9\10 Silent Soldiers,what a great Song !!!

As mentioned with the 'Nemesis' cd, this has just been Re-issued by the Excellent Wounded Bird label, but without the live bonus tracks.Again soundwise no different to the Axepertise editions, so if you have those, you'll be fine without forking out more for this.

From: Andi Date: May 22, 2004 at 16:11
Axe is one of the best Hardrock bands ever. Offering is the best album, check out "Rock 'n Roll Party in the Streets, Burn the City down, and Steal Another Fantasy"!

From: Capt.0 Date: June 1, 2004 at 12:52
You made a classic "Begining to End" One hit wonder that nobody seems to remember! AXE:LIVE, Neferious.?

From: Capt.0 Date: June 1, 2004 at 14:49
My local DJ must be, needs to be, WILL BE reminded in the very near future!

From: Rycheage Date: June 5, 2004 at 0:11
Though the music is still melodic rock primed for 80's AOR format radio, there's a bit more sting in the tail. "Less pomp and more guitar" as an old review of 'Offering' mentioned back in 1982.

From: Chad Date: August 22, 2004 at 1:48
Classic with a capital C. No album better than this from 1982. Stellar rock from THE band of the early 80's. Enough said.

Third excellent release and probably their best known one. A slightly heavier album than the Pomp of the first 2. This features an excellent cover of the Montrose classic 'I Got The Fire' aswell as the brilliant 'Silent Soldiers' (later covered by C.I.T.A on their impressive debut cd Relapse Of Reason - along with Steal Another Fantasy also featured on Offering).

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 14:31
Rock and roll oarty in the streets totally wiped me out! What an original tune, speaking of what was going on at the time. This one was a great disc! Find one and burn it out, as quick as you can.

From: Emi Date: December 21, 2004 at 17:29
sensacional, es todo lo que puedo decir

From: masmusic Date: April 1, 2005 at 9:38
This is the one that started it all!!!

From: Knuckles Date: April 1, 2005 at 9:49
I may get kicked in the mouth for this,but it is a comment board. Rock n roll party in the street for some reason hits me wrong.Always has.As far as on the cheesy scale,it is just behind achy breaky heart.

From: Blue Charvel Date: April 1, 2005 at 10:05
No worries, like you said, it's a comment board and that's a valid comment. I actually agree with you, except I happen to like cheese! Plus I saw them on this tour opening for Cheap Trick, my first "real" rock concert so it's a got a bunch of nostalgia for me as well.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: July 2, 2006 at 13:58
Good Hard Rock/AOR album, unos clasicos malditos tanto este como el siguiente son 2 discos imperdibles si sabes de lo bueno, describiendo el album hay temas que conservan la frescura y la magia de los 80's y otros con esa reminiscencia de los 70 pero que no se hacen antiguos porque tienen ese toque 80's Jennifer(ah que nombre de mujer precioso y que tema de mis favoritas de todos los tiempos), Rock 'n Roll Party, Now or Never, Silent Soldiers, Burn The City Down lo mejor 8/10

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 29, 2006 at 22:38
I can barely describe to you just how blown away I was the first time I played this on cassette back in the day. I had my headphones on and was supposed be reading for a book report. YEAH RIGHT! I was off from the intro piano and guitar riff of "Rock N Roll Party In The Streets". The thing is, the damn thing never let up! Song after song..."Steal Another Fantasy", "Jennifer", and "Now Or Never". All killer melodic rock! Always takes me back...In a very good way!!!

From: underworld king Date: April 23, 2008 at 8:10
My favorite Axe album of all time. I still have the record and cassette as well as the cd now. Every song on here rocks. Favorites are 1, 3, 7 and 9.

From: lalo r.o.c.k. Date: July 7, 2008 at 18:17

From: rbrigade Date: November 30, 2008 at 15:13
Fantastic album. Personally I like Holdin' on too. Sounds very catchy to me. Enjoyable form beginning till the end

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 21, 2011 at 12:05
Very good album!!!...Hard Rock & AOR songs is what you will find in here ...for me the band sounds heavily influenced by UFO(the band) when playing their rocky tunes("I Got The Fire" & "Burn The City Down")...excellent tracks for me are "Rock 'N' Roll Party In The Streets","Steal Another Fantasy","Jennifer" & "Now Or Never"(nice AOR)...i have this on vinyl so i cannot say about the live bonus tracks but surely they are fine too...91/100
