FIREHOUSE IS ONE OF THE BEST BANDS STILL LIVE AND KICKIN'..SEE THEM LIVE THEY KICK MAJOR MAJOR ASS...

From: TIM Date: June 6, 2001 at 23:06
These guys are great!

START TO END IT'S ON FIRE

From: Dragonfly Date: December 13, 2001 at 7:27
A outstanding first release. First rate melodic rock at it's best. Song after song is a hit after hit.

From: koogles Date: January 3, 2002 at 6:49
Firehouse took the commercial melodic metal formula of Warrant and Trixter, and perfected it. These guys could do no wrong. EXCELLENT!

From: Mark Date: April 6, 2002 at 23:52
A great melodic rock album, and even more staggering for a band's first release. Crystal clear production highlights CJ's amazing vocals and Bill Leverty's impeccable guitar playing. Throw in big, catchy choruses with big backing vocals, and this one adds up to a winner. They came in right at the tail end of hair bands ruling the airwaves, but what a great band. A shame grunge killed off this kind of music and made millionaires out of a bunch of pissed off whiners.

From: Richard H Date: May 14, 2002 at 11:57
I wouldn't catergorize Firehouse as glam metal ,they are traditonal melodic hard rockers with class.Great c.d.,great production great bunch of guys.

From: Sean Date: May 23, 2002 at 13:23
great hard rock. Good vocal harmonies. Best band in the world. I would give it a 10++.

From: richierocker Date: May 26, 2002 at 21:18
These guys rock, upbeat, songs great instument utilization, and some of the fiercest, in your face guitars i have ever heard, a must have for any rock fan buy it now

From: RichieRocker Date: June 1, 2002 at 15:53
If you havent bought this album you are so missin out, one of the best bye far. when it comes to late 80s early 90s.

From: tman Date: June 19, 2002 at 16:17
It is to bad that the music industry abandoned hardrock in the early ninties. These guys were the next big group. But as with most hard rock bands grunge was the demise. What a shame. Though Firehouse did beat out Nirvana and Alice in Chains for best new group at the grammys!!

From: el colebrom Date: July 6, 2002 at 21:12
Muy bueno cantante soa como BON JOVI.

From: jens Date: July 20, 2002 at 1:06
didn't know that grammy fact. highly interesting. but NIRVANA single-guitarredly killed that hardrock and drove it into the niche it now is in. (called: 'japan' )

From: TIM Date: August 15, 2002 at 16:42
Sorry jens, it wasn't Nirvana's guitars. The dj's, MTV, etc.. did it.

From: Steve T Date: September 3, 2002 at 11:05
Good album but better was to follow.

From: The FIzzy One Date: September 23, 2002 at 19:09
The only thing that keeps this froma perfect 10 is the useless 'Seasons of Change' and the even more useless intro. I'm sorry to report also that I don't feel the same way about 'Love of a Lifetime' that I did back in '91. Still good for a very solid 9.5 from me. Next to same-period releases by Skid Row, Metallica and Tesla, this is about all I listened to in sixth grade. elfizzbo@hotmail.com

INCREIBLES, ALUCINANTES, GENIALES, MARAVILLOSOS... No puedo definir el placer q me produce escuxar a estos fantastidos y jovenes genios. Gracias por hacerme feliz con: ALL SHE WROTE, LOVE OF A LIFETIME,DON'T TREAD MY BAD... sois cojonudos tios!!!!

From: freddy de keyze Date: October 24, 2002 at 2:53
Very good record and very good band indeed.Perfectly melodic hardrock. Not a classic, but very close. A pity their last records are not that strong. Hope they return with a clear winner !

From: jocantaro Date: October 30, 2002 at 13:14
lo ke mola la de all she wrote, es la ostia 'ba ba beibi baba'. jaja

From: Cotton C. Lover Date: November 3, 2002 at 6:19
Wasn't on the grammys that they beat out those other bands. It was on the People's Choice Awards. Still, they did win. This album is great. A lot of the album cuts were incredible hard rock (don't walk away, shake and tumble, overnight sensation, and helpless, to name a few) Too bad they seemed to favor ballads over rock on their subsequent releases.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: November 12, 2002 at 4:30
Si los Judas Priest(los ochenteros,los buenos)eran la banda metalica por excelencia,los Firehouse representan el puro y genuino Hard Rock americano de principios de los 90,no voy a decir que es una obra maestra,pues tiene algunos temas que no llegan,pero en general hay temas de buen nivel,asi que a los que les guste el Hard Rock,ya sabeis esta banda debeis tenerla PRESENTE.

From: Fizz Date: December 12, 2002 at 3:27
ou must have some serious nerve-damage below the waist if 'Shake 'n' Tumble' doesn't make you wanna do some serious fuckin'!

like other rock gods like skid and cinderella this guys were discovered from the ultimate MASTERS: bon jovi.as we can hear he had great feelin for promote other STELLAR BAND!this album was one of the few that i completely feel mine at the first hearing.one of the best for sure.EVERY SONGS should be at the top of the charts even now after 10 yrs because they are Stellar!!!FUCK YOU KURT COBAIN and you who,with your grunge had destroyed the most wonderful music in hystory: ROCK!

One of the best issues of Melocic Rock in nineties. Brilliant band with a fantastic career. Absolutelly all Firehouse albums are great and this is the perfect masterpiece. Hello's from Spain

From: Trick Taylor Date: May 29, 2003 at 15:04
Taken by itself this debut is quite listenable, jam packed with energetic moments and great vocals. As a whole Firehouse's career path has not been as remarkable. But hey, I hear they are still huge in Malaysia!! I am resisting the urge to rip them to shreds because their show at a Minneapolis club in 1992 was one of my top 5 ever. Sophomore jinx hit big time and they would not get another shot after that. Poodle rock? Yes, but good poodle rock. Nothing wrong with that.

From: Chris Date: June 5, 2003 at 3:27
Two of the band members, CJ Snare and Perry Richardson, used to be in a band called 'Maxx Warrior,' which toured college towns in the south in the mid 80s. They are really nice guys as well. Maxx Warrior had a four-track EP which lacked in production, but was decent for an indie. The songs were 'Taken by Forces' 'It's Alright (To Get What You Want)' 'Burning Down the Gates of Hell' and I forget the fourth, which probably was the best song knowing my memory. If you can find that, you are lucky!

From: vandervelde Date: June 23, 2003 at 18:06
This is one of cd's of my childhood. Now i can't even look at this cd.....i know every song word by word.....every riff is in my head.....i think this is better than the follow up( even there is their best song Sleeping with you)...with song Overnight Sensation they write ideal song....i remember once i listen this song entire day...i even try to write a script to conclude this song in a movie,i think it's superb movie song.....other best songs All She Wrote, Don't Treat Me Bad, but who am i kid

From: Alejandro Date: June 24, 2003 at 6:42
A fines de los ochenta,una camada de grupos intent' resucitar un hard rock medianamente devaluado con el avance del Grunge,y entre otras FIREHOUSE form' parte de la misma.Con un disco apenas correcto,ALL SHE WROTE es MUY similar a ROUND AND ROUND de RATT,pero es de lo mejorcito de la placa,junto a LOVE..(de hecho las baladas son el punto m's fuerte de FIREHOUSE),pero la originalidad no sobra.Bien producido y ejecutado,no deja de tener temas monotonos.5.50/10. carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

From: Scandinavia Date: June 25, 2003 at 6:25
Probably my fave album from 1990 along with Warrants 'Cherry Pie'...I remember being totally blown away by the immaculate choir on 'All she Wrote'....Killer track! 'Rock on the Radio' kicks it all off and from the first 'ROOOCK...' you know you're in for heavy weather! All-time classic!

From: John Date: August 13, 2003 at 13:22
Perfectly produced pop hard rock. If there's a stinker in the bunch, I'm not hearing it. I love coming across a record that SOUNDS awesome and this one nails it.

From: RR-Finland Date: September 1, 2003 at 6:34
Overnight Sensation, wow!! This record has been borrowed from my brothers friend(he was studying in US and bought it from there), and it's been quite long time in my shell now.. sorry, Kimmo! So many good tunes and great backvocals and it's hard to believe in their first album.

From: pablo Date: September 20, 2003 at 11:50
Gran cd de hard rock comercial y con una produccion de lujo ,imprescindible

What's with all this Spanish crap?! Write in English so people can read what you're saying!!

From: Rene Date: September 23, 2003 at 9:43
I can not understand people like you KING JAMES. Why everybody have to write in English???? Not everybody knows how to do that and, you have to go agains those people????? They are just happy to have a page like this where they can write opinions about their favorite bands. Anyway 800f the people write in English on this page, enough to read for you KING JAMES. Why do you not respect other HARD ROCK and HEAVY METAL LOVERS or why you dont learn how to write in Spanish??? ha ha ha. Sad but true

From: diego Date: October 5, 2003 at 22:27
algo de razon tiene alejandro,pero no muchas bandas de finales de los ochenta pueden ufanarse de no ser monotonas.igual,la potencia den firehouse no la tiene algun otro.este es su mejor disco y el mas fuerte.original detalle k despues de la cancion mas pesada siga la estupenda balada love of a lifetime .en fin ,lesrecomindo el disco.

Great Cd!

From: Big Mike Date: November 12, 2003 at 11:22
Rib Cracking album, absolute killer which is rare. The second album is killer aswell. after that it tapers off. This album is at the heavy end of hard rock and pretty melodic. absolute gold

From: FALLEN ANGEL Date: December 9, 2003 at 18:16
BIEN HEAVY.SONIDO MODERNO(COMO KE ES DE LOS NOVENTA)Y MUCHA POTENCIA.OVERNIGTH SENSATION ES UNA EXTRAORDINARIA DESCARGA,Y LOVE OF A LIFETIME ES UNA GRAN LENTA.LO MEJOR DEL DISCO.

From: Rene Date: December 9, 2003 at 18:40
I dont agree with you FALLEN ANGEL. This album doesnt sound modern at all. It sound like the glory late 80s.

From: Gareth Date: March 15, 2004 at 12:11
Totally class album....in the 90'ategory! Songs like Rock on the Radio, All She wrote, Overnite Sensation, Dont Treat Me Bad and my personal favourite Shake and Tumble are classics. Their new album prime time is also immensely good!

From: TIM Date: March 15, 2004 at 12:39
I agree Gareth. I think Shake And Tumble is my favorite as well. I love the rest of the album too. Great album!

It is sad to say but I never took the time to listen to any other Firehouse release after this one.I am ashamed because I thought this release was a very good one.What would be the next release anybody would suggest I listen to next?

This band has some talent but for the most part they come off sounding like every other poison winger warrant sounding hairband. Which is not a good thing. I demand a lot more substance than this. Case in point, Check out the first badlands cd and the 3rd one called dusk. Now that's rock you can sink your teeth into.

From: Endika Date: June 1, 2004 at 18:28
Joder,gran disco donde los haya. La magnifica Overnight Sensation se merece un lugar en los anales del hard rock.Obra maestra. 9,5/10

From: Big Papa K Date: June 13, 2004 at 0:55
One of the last groups to have some success before this type of music fell out of the mainstream. Surprisingly rocking for a band thought of as just making a bunch of power ballads. Too bad that the albums following this could not match up. 7/10

From: Desslar Date: June 13, 2004 at 22:03
Wow, what an album!! I've always been a fan, but i only recently got this album. It rocks all the way through! Great party songs and a classic ballad. 'Home is Where the Heart Is' is rather lame, but that's the only weak point. Although the band's style is clearly LA pop metal, some of the solos have a very European feel (All She Wrote for example).

From: Kristian Date: July 19, 2004 at 2:32
This is a masterpiece of production. I mean the sound is so clean it's almost orgasmic. Def Leppard - Hysteria/Adrenalize like production to offer the most for your ears. 10 out of 10

From: Date: July 21, 2004 at 20:09
compare 'firehouse' to nay thing these days. Great songs from a great album made by a great band. GOD! i miss this kind of music.

From: Rycheage Date: July 24, 2004 at 0:59
Excellent hard rock/AOR album on tap here. Crystal clear production and high quality tunes. Just about every song has class written all over them. The consistency is astounding, especially with what they have put out in the last few years.

From: WINDSHADOW Date: August 17, 2004 at 14:13
IMPECCABLE VOCAL,HIGH PROFILE THINKING GUITAR WORK ,WORLD CLASS DRUMMER , THUNDERING BASS NNNNNN MELODIC AND POWERFUL SONG . WHO CAN BEAT THIS?

From: Richierocker Date: August 17, 2004 at 15:06
Some of the most in your face guitars i have ever heard. One of my all time favorite albums.

From: Geoff Date: August 17, 2004 at 20:58
Yeah, not really anything negative you could ever say about this one. The drums are what first hooked me, then the rest just follows. A truly massive sound and the heaviest melodic hard rock band at the time. What a sound! What songs! An all time favourite of mine is 'All she wrote'. It was the first time I heard it and always will be. Killer hard rock album.

From: jack Date: August 24, 2004 at 6:53
I began to think that 1990 is the year for songs like pour some sugar on me(def leppard). Rock on the radio,just like cherrie pie(warrant) and cherrie red(lita ford),looks like some cheap imitation of pour some sugar on me. Start with those stupid rappin' lke sound,then the anthem rolls in. But i like it though.

From: assfucker Date: August 30, 2004 at 5:29
fuck you jack, this band is awesome,you are a malparido, find out what it means, this band is one of the best in the melodic hard rock scene.

From: Kip Date: August 31, 2004 at 16:03
Probably my least favorite Firehouse album, (But that's not saying anything bad really!) and I'll say it's their most consistent listen. they were just coming into the own here and realizing their potential. In my opinion the worst song on the disc is the first one, Rock On The Radio, but the rest are either great or enjoyable. Highlights are the classic ballad Love Of A Lifetime and Don't Treat Me Bad, All She Wrote and Overnight Sensation. Every song I didn't mention is good or better. 8.5/10

OTRO BUEN ALBUM, BUENAS CANCIONES, SONIDO AMERICANO, PERO COMPARANDO CON BANDAS COMO POR EJEMPLO LAS ESCANDINAVAS ESTAN A MIL A'OS LUZ, EN LO QUE ES HARD ROCK MELODICO LAS BANDAS ESCANDINAVAS JAMAS TENDRAN COMPARACION, TIENE OTRO ESTILO Y UN SONIDO UNICO QUE LOS HACE LEGENDARIOS. EN REALIDAD LOS AMERICANOS SE QUEDAN ATRAS, EN CAMBIO EN EL AOR SON TREMENDOS. ALBUM DECENTE AL IGUAL QUE LAS SIGUIENTES. EL CANTANTE LE QUITA PUNTOS AL GRUPO. MUY AMERICANO.

From: Joan Date: November 11, 2004 at 14:22
Muy buen disco que se mueve entre el hard rok y el glam..a mi el cantante me parece impresionante, aunque el disco entero me acaba saturando un poco. Rock on the radio y overnight sensation, temazos.

From: Tom Bombadil Date: December 1, 2004 at 5:37
I like alot of the play on this one, specialy 'Overnight' but this cd has one big flaw, the writing is very weak, to many ballads... :/

From: Geoff Date: December 1, 2004 at 19:51
Sorry to be picky Tom, but this album only has one ballad. Yes, it's awful, but it's still only one song out of 12. How is that too many ballads? (BTW, sorry to all those who like the song, I just hate it personally). I guess you might be labeling 'Don't walk away' as a ballad, but I'd label it ballsy riff driven blues before I called it a ballad. Awesome album.

From: Artie Date: December 1, 2004 at 21:25
I agree with Geoff. Tom is moron. It just has '1' ballad, and not my favorite ballad of ballads either. Too saccharine for me, and the lyrics of the chorus kinda make me want to vomit. But the song is at least professionally played with an excellent-sounding production, like every other song on the album, which totally rocks. As for 'Don't Walk Away', I would also agree it's not a ballad, but a slow-paced heavy-sounding riff song, sort of in the vein of Metallica's 'Sad But True'.

From: Tom Bombadil Date: December 2, 2004 at 16:18
lol you kids are so quick to get on to name callings, just because someone dosent share you complete opinion you jump on them, lol go to bed baby! bye bye baby bye bye!!!

From: Geoff Date: February 22, 2005 at 5:32
I never saw the reply comment by Tom, but just for the record mate an opinion on this would be whether it is good or not, a fact would be that there is only one ballad... that is not an opinion because it is actually as it is - a true fact. As for this disc, probably as good as a debut album can be. 'All she wrote' still blows my mind, as does 'Don't treat me bad', 'Overnight sensation', 'Helpless', 'Don't walk away' - all of them. Thunderous drums, amazing sound, awesome disc!

From: z4roxx Date: February 28, 2005 at 23:07
Awesome debut and by far their best,IMO.I love a lot also their followin''Hold your fire'but this one has more energy and a finer production,all songs are catchy and amazing.Top notch melodick hard rock,one of the best in the genre...

From: cook_jaime Date: March 9, 2005 at 16:24
I had this cassette back when it came out but only because I had to have every hair band cassette back them. I was very close minded so I hated these guys. Love of a Lifetime was wussy rock to me. However, I popped the cd in a few ays ago and it's a damn good cd. Pretty rocking too. I'm really considering getting a few more Firehouse cds. Highlights: Shake and Tumble, Don't Treat Me Bad, All She Wrote, Oughta Be a Law, Lover's Lane. 8/10

Mi favorito de Firehouse con diferencia. Hard rock americano, super potente, con riffs tremendos..desde el comienzo con 'Rock on the radio', te puedes hacer una idea de la ca'a que se avecina.. Lover's lane, Don't walk away, Overnight sensation.. CA'AAA!!

Aunque su 2' disco puede incluso superar este debut,considero este disco sensacional.El hard mel'dico de estos americanos tubo reconocimiento por parte del p'blico hard, y en este Lp nos dejaron grandes canciones que a todo buen amante del hard melodico le encantan. 'Don't treat me bad' o 'All she wrote' les hicieron subir en popularidad, al igual que 'Love of a lifetime'.Pero el disco tambi'n contiene m's piezas formidables como la bailable 'Shake and tumble' o la rockera 'Overnight sensation'

Does anybody know, why 'Japan' is so involved? All these extra tracks from Japan, and nearly every group have been in Japan. Why??

From: zld Date: March 13, 2006 at 12:13
To Metalguf. I suppose you mean the japan bonustracks ? There is a good explanation on: www.melodicrock.com > miscellaneous >inside story. This should answer your question.

From: Scrounger Date: July 20, 2008 at 17:21
This has become one of my all-time favourite albums, 'All She Wrote' is one the best melodic rock songs I have ever had the pleasure of hearing!!

From: the rocker Date: August 28, 2008 at 19:15
huge cd. one of the best of all time in the genre. now listen, i'm a huge fan of the melodic rock scene, and i have my fav. singers. now why is'nt cj ever put into the same company as danny vaughn,james christian.tony harnell,harry hess. this guy can really sing, and belongs up there with the rest of these awesome singers.that was just to name a few of so many great vocalists, as you all know of course.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: October 27, 2008 at 16:59
I always loved this tape, and always felt like it got a bad rap. Yeah, it's late-to-the-party hair-metal, but it's pretty heavy for what it is. That's partly due to the production, which is very in-your-face. The guitars slice at your ears while the drums hammer your head. At the same time, there are melodies galore, and C.J. Snare has a terrific voice. The only drawback is that the lyrics are of the pussy-whipped and desperate' variety. Aside from that, and based solely on the music, this is an outstanding release, and a lot better than some of the other come-lately hair-metal of the early '90's.

maybe the best hard us band ever.over night sensation is more than a killer song it is a classic for lovers of melodic rock

From: metalmaniac777 Date: January 31, 2010 at 14:10
If you love big, thunderous L.A.-style hair-metal and this CD doesn't set your blood on fire, you better sit up and take a good look around, because you're probably riding in the back of a hearse. The hooks on this hard rocking honey are hellaciously huge, commercial catchiness at its finest, all backed by one of the greatest production jobs in pop-metal history. Speaking of backing...the backing vocals are a delicious highlight here, delivered on a massive wall-of-sound that will peel the paint from your walls and shake-rock-rattle your rafters while you stand before your stereo in awe with a gleeful ear-to-ear grin stretched across your face.

From: edwithmj Date: January 31, 2010 at 21:41
I only discovered this band because the cover of the CD caught my eye on some website. I saw what the band was and checked out some of their songs and from there I was hooked! Great album with a few filler tracks.

From: hair metal again Date: May 9, 2010 at 3:25
hair metal heaven by the mighty FIREHOUSE.excellent debut,fantastic production by david prater,amazing guitar work ,big choruses this is perfect from every aspect.this got out as hard rock music exploded back then and put firehouse to the elite of hair metal genre.it incudes mega hits like " all she wrote " ,"dont treat me bad" and "love of a lifetime". just amazing

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 10, 2010 at 20:57
Great album and one of the best releases of "the new decade",the 90's...CJ Snare took the world by storm by hitting very high notes when singing..apart from that the rest of the musicians were amamzing(they still are,including CJ's singing..saw a vid recently of the band and that man hasn't lost a bit of his singing quailities)..about the songs?..well my all time fave is "Don't Treat Me Bad" but what about the rest.."Love Of A Lifetime","All She Wrote","Overnight Sensation","Oughta Be A Law" and so on..a great album indeed from a band that has persisted through the years.95/100

From: the rocker Date: December 31, 2011 at 18:26
One of the best and one of my favorite debuts of all time. There is not one song I don't like on this awesome cd. CJ has one of the best voices in hard rock. Just saw them in 2011 in a small club, they sounded great! I highly recommend!

From: 123charpenay Date: January 2, 2012 at 12:47
the riff of "overnight sensation" is the sound of my telephone.many peoples ask me "where do you find this bomb?" i say "firehouse first anbum track 10". HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012 FROM FRANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: 123charpenay Date: November 26, 2012 at 12:17
the 2008 japan reissue is hightly recommanded cause there is 4 bonus tracks live."overnight sensation""all she wrote""home is where the heart is""don t walk away".very great live sound.

From: Palash Date: August 8, 2017 at 11:58
Excellent. You can say this album Best of Firehouse. All time great ballad - Home is where the heart is. Voice is like Skid Row (Sebastian Bach)
