...FireHouse ROCKS...this album is great..these guys are one of the early 90's best rock bands...Party On Dudes!!!

From: Don Date: November 11, 2001 at 18:37
A respectable record, given the sub-par efforts of their last few CD's. But the awful rap tune has got to go! Better than "3," "Good Acoustics" and "Category 5," but still nowhere close to the first two CD's.

From: Mark Date: December 11, 2001 at 14:25
I agree it's better than "Category 5", which didn't rock much at all (and had lame production). It's definitely not as good as "3", which kicked serious ass! The first two are still the standard, but "3" is a quality CD.

From: koogles Date: January 3, 2002 at 7:00
Pretty spare effort by Firehouse: only "Don't Fade on Me" bears the melodic trademarks of albums past. This band needs to listen to their first 2 albums again.

From: dokken6008 Date: April 8, 2002 at 12:29
By no stretch of the imagination is this a back-to-signature-sound record by FireHouse. What the hell is wrong with these guys? They release two fantastic albums (their self-titled debut and 'Hold Your Fire') and ever since then have been releasing--for the most part--a load of horse shit! And koogles, while I may not always agree with your opinions (particularly on 'Eyes'), I couldn't agree more with you on your view on FireHouse. As for the "rap-tune"--I agree with Don. That has got to a gag.

From: WoW Date: May 11, 2002 at 2:11
Not as good as Category 5, but it really rocks!! I'd Reather Be Making Love is the "grudador" anthem! Fantastic!

From: dokken6008 Date: May 13, 2002 at 4:22
FireHouse has to come out with something a hell of a lot better than this for me to regain faith in the band. The first two albums were great, why the hell can't any of their other material measure up? The creativity is not here and obviously the motivation to make a great album seems to have been gone for the last ten years. Leverty is a fantastic guitarist (one of my favorites) and C.J.'s voice is instantly recognisable, etc., etc.--but when the hell will FH make a good cd again, if ever!!?!?

From: The Prophet Date: May 13, 2002 at 12:49
I like this one, I think is better than cat. n.5. They are come back to do what they do better, hard rock. I like songs like Unbelieveble(my fav is so funny)and Call of the night(this one rocks), The Dark is a strange rap metal tune but I like the lyric.

From: dokken6008 Date: May 20, 2002 at 7:45
T.P.-- Regarding the production on O2...... Whether you and I liked the album or not, aside, you would have to agree that the production on this one sucks. Where's Keith Olsen or Tom Werman when you need them?

From: The Prophet Date: May 20, 2002 at 13:32
Maybe you are right Dokken6008. But, you know, I was so glad they come back to hard rock, after 2 cd pop rock oriented, that I don't care that much about the production. After listening War to end all wars from Malmsteen, all the others cds seem to have a top producer to me, ahahahahahha.

From: dokken6008 Date: June 20, 2002 at 2:48
Good point--I heard about Malmsteen's latest and the production was said to have sucked big time. Maybe I should buy that cd and everything will sound crystal-clear top-noth to me, too. Have a nice day--SEE YOU ROUND, T.P...

From: Steve T Date: September 3, 2002 at 11:07
Not a good album by anyone's standards. Poor.

From: ken Date: December 10, 2002 at 18:40
well me and wint two the same school he rock then and he rocks now i love the song call of the night it is kick ass.

From: robert Date: December 12, 2002 at 14:55
no me gusta nada este disco, no entiendo q coņo, quieren hacer cambiando asi d estilo. Bueno, un fallo lo tiene cualquiera...

From: iaffprofireman Date: December 30, 2002 at 3:11
I think it's pretty decent. There are a couple really good songs on it. Not their best effort ( in comparison to the 1st & 2nd albums ), but not too bad. It is a little bit of a diffrent sound than the old Firehouse, but you can still tell it is them ( although I do like the old stuff slightly better )But with all the alternaCRAP that came out the last few years, this is refreshing for 2000. In my opinion, it's worth checking out, not a bad album at all.

From: Firehouse RULES Date: January 25, 2003 at 14:06
I think every single Firehouse album is worth more than gold!!! But it sucks its so hard to get them in sweden... anybody know where I can buy'em??? Take It easy guys..

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: January 31, 2003 at 0:29
Bill Leverty is 36 years old today. He was born on Monday, January 30, 1967.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: January 31, 2003 at 0:32
I don't know why my last post is dated Jan. 31st? It's still Thursday, Jan. 30th were I'm at (and that's truly all that matters, right!).

From: David Date: January 31, 2003 at 0:35
It's the 31st here in Australia Jason and that's all that matters to me.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: January 31, 2003 at 0:58
NO, no, no, David. The only thing that matters in Australia is, AC/DC. The rest of the world revolves around me!

From: TIM Date: January 31, 2003 at 1:22
Must be one hell of a waistline you have there jason.

From: David Date: January 31, 2003 at 2:26
Very good TIM.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: January 31, 2003 at 2:59
I don't know any songs on this album. Sooooo Dave, how do you put up with all those damn flies over there in Australia? Must be a bitch, huh?

From: David Date: February 1, 2003 at 4:10
No, Jason the flies ain't too bad, you've just gotta make sure you put flie spray on...that's all.

From: Gar Date: March 6, 2003 at 17:27
This is a pretty solid album. They put some more hard rock elements in that their previous albums were missing. Why isn't the 3rd track "The Dark" listed above? I know its nobody's favorite, but it still needs to be listed.

From: MKGONLMADRI Date: April 4, 2003 at 9:36

From: Date: April 24, 2003 at 14:44
this album suchs very much,this is not Hardrock

From: James Date: April 24, 2003 at 15:25
A solid album if you take a good listen to it. my no means back to the first three cd standard but still a solid 7.5. Don't believe the rating on this, some one person rated this thing to give it a terrible rating. A 1.15 it does not deserve.

From: Rycheage Date: June 15, 2003 at 2:23
After a couple of softer albums and despite the sometimes varied style of the album, the majority of it does the job of recapturing the long time fans wishes of a classic rocking Firehouse record, while a few tracks try something new. With this album the band should keep everyone happy and maintain their strong fan base.

From: John Date: August 13, 2003 at 13:13
Doesn't go quite as far as bringing the RAWK all the way back, but comes damn close in spots. Despite that, the songwriting is still top notch and Leverty can hang with the best of them on the guitar.

From: METAL FAN 1 Date: September 25, 2003 at 22:24
"Don't Fade On Me" is the best song on here. The best Leverty guitar solo on this album is in this song. The whole album is a fantastic effort!!!!!!!!!!!

From: METAL FAN 1 Date: September 27, 2003 at 23:21
Sad news, everyone! I just learned the other day that Bruce Waibel, our beloved bass player on this album, has passed away on September 2,2003. I'd like to dedicate the song "Jumpin'" to the memory of Bruce, as this song is what the music is really all about!! I haven't found out how he died, but when I do; I will share the information with you all. Bruce, your fans miss you. R.I.P. brother!!!

From: Rick Date: October 2, 2003 at 10:48
Firehouse has finally gotten back to it's roots (sort of) with their new release Prime Time. The title track is addicting with it's catchy chorus and, most importantly, it rocks. Another plus is that there is only one ballad on the cd, which is subpar at best. Leverty actually sings on three of the songs. They rock, but with the change in vocals, it loses the Firehouse feel. All that being said, the new cd is a real nice step in the right direction.

From: BassBoy! Date: March 11, 2004 at 18:04
Why did Perry quit? Because he knew it was getting lame?

From: Gar Date: March 11, 2004 at 19:17
Actually Perry was fired. Apparently there was some bad blood between him and Bill Leverty.

From: Border Rat Date: June 24, 2004 at 7:46
I'd rather be making love,don't fade on me,what can you do,call of the night and loving you is paradise are my favourite tracks.This is a good rock cd and it is great to see the band continue their career.

From: Kip Date: August 31, 2004 at 15:41
Do these guys ever release a bad album? Not yet. The sound here is a bit darker and the production is a bit fuzzy, but as usual the songwriting steals he show. Firehouse does delve into a new age sound with The Dark, which is terrible, so hopefully that is out of their system. Highlights here include I'd Rather Be Makin' Love, and the last 3 tracks, Unbelievable, Loving You Is Paradise and Call Of The Night, which may have the best hook they ever wrote. 7.5/10

From: Geoff Date: August 31, 2004 at 20:42
Sorry Kip, going to have to disagree again. Whilst I love Firehouse, I think this album is horrible! 'Call of the night' is a killer hard rock track, but IMO the rest is a tragedy. Have there ever been worse lyrics than 'Jumpin' or 'In the dark', or, to be honest, the majority of this album? Firehouse were never lyrical geniuses, but never this bad. Awesome band, awful release. I really dislike this album. Bad hard rock.

From: Kip Date: September 9, 2004 at 4:08
I don't understand how someone who is a fan of all, or at least most of their previous ballads couldn't be a fan of the 2 ballads here - Unbelievable and Lovin You Is Paradise. To me, they fit right in with their older stuff. And if you're wondering why I like I'd Rather Be Makin' Love... It's the LYRICS!! Dude, that song is me to a T. Great party/date song and it brings back some great memories of me and my ex in a parked car... I'll stop there...

From: Aussie Dave Date: October 6, 2004 at 21:29
This album doesn't start for me until track 5! The first four tracks are a waste of time! But i must admit, the rest of the album is pretty darn good! Sure, not as good as their first 3 albums, but still very solid! Call Of The Night is a fantastic closer! One of their better tunes of their career so far! I'm In Love This Time, What You Can Do and Unbelievable are all good hard rock songs, and Loving You Is Paradise isn't a too bad ballad! 7.5/10.....

From: John Date: October 9, 2004 at 9:53
Aussie, I agree that it's a 'hard' listen, but don't discount 'Take It Off' without listening at high volumes. I think this record gets slagged unfairly. It's not the S/T record, but it's not nearly as bad as everyone says. Solid 7.5/10.

From: ppfinder Date: October 12, 2004 at 13:55
Just one repair! I think the album has 10 songs and not 9.

From: headbanger4life Date: October 31, 2005 at 2:19
This is better than a couple of their previous efforts, but it still doesn't compare to the first two releases. They have a few more rocking tunes here. I'd like to see them come full circle back to where they started. I haven't heard the latest release (Prime Time) but I hope it's a step up for them.

From: Erik Date: October 31, 2005 at 11:11
headbanger4life i can only say. Go get your copy of Prime Time ASAP. Its truly a great return for the guys to their old grand form. A must have for Firehouse fans ( like me ).

From: rene Date: March 13, 2006 at 15:38
LISTEN TO ME FOR ONES IN YOUR LIFE. This is a very very good album. I think this must be their best since their classic first two albums. Songs like DONīT FADE ON ME or the very heavy metal(yes, melodic metal) CALL OF THE NIGHT are ultra cool. Very good songs and riffs and with great melodies like always. One of my fave FIREHOUSE album. A real must have release for any melodic hard rock fan that still love the late 80s beginning of the 90s.

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: October 31, 2006 at 19:32

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 5, 2010 at 8:26
When the band released this perfectly-acceptable-but-nothing-special album, it was finally time to accept the lamentable fact that the hard rocking inferno of greatness Firehouse had proven themselves to be on their first two CDs was now little more than a dying ember. There is still some evidence on this release that the band could really rock the house if they so chose, but for the most part this is pretty uninspired stuff. Nothing terrible, mind you, but the kind of bland hard rock that makes you go "oh no" instead of "oh yeah!"

From: edwithmj Date: April 24, 2010 at 20:46
This is softer than their first two releases and is similar to Firehouse 3 in its style. It's a good album. I like Unbelievable the best I think.

From: hair metal again Date: May 13, 2010 at 2:04
here they come again faithful to hard rock music after so many years.very good release by hair metal gods FIREHOUSE ,those guys have never disappointed me through the years.great rockers like "take it off","call of the night" and beutiful ballads like "unbelievable" and " dont fade on me".great guitar work once again by bill and the well known vocs of cj are all around the place!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 31, 2012 at 16:57
Pleasant album in my book...nice songs with that "poppy" touch that has characterized the band here and there..."Take It Off","What You can Do"(nice),"Unbelievable"(nice),"Loving You Is Paradise" & "Call Of The Night"(catchy) are my faves...85/100
