|One of the best 38 Special albums. Great hit songs and good southern rock songs. A 10 to me. I just wish it had more than 9 songs on the cd.

|THE best .38 album period, and one i have been playing regularly for the past 20 odd years . The band really hit their stride with this one, cranking out hit singles all over the place. Ohh the glory days.

|Chin Lightening! What the hell! I guess a finger slip is present in the track listing to this one. CHAIN LIGHTENING is a stellar track. So is Caught up in You and Rough Housin'. Can't go wrong with this .38 Special album.

|It's a toss up between this one & the next, as to which is the best 38 Special album. This one seems to rock slightly harder with the concert favorite "Rough-Housin'" & album oriented "Chain Lightning". Still, the bands top FM staple is found here in "Caught Up In You".

|It just goes to show how different peoples' tastes vary even when they like the same band. For me, "Caught up in you" and "You keep runnin' away" are really good tracks, but the rest disappoint. To most of the earlier reviewers this is their best album - for me it's a toss up between Tour de Force and Strength in Numbers as to their best, with this one well down the list.

|this band just cooks. I prefer these guys to most all other southern rock bands

|This picks up where Wild-Eyed Southern Boys left off. Caught Up In You is one of their best ever songs while Back Door Stranger, Rough-Housin', Chain Lightnin' and Back On The Track make this a must for any southern rock/AOR fan.

|the exact follow to wild eyed southern boys.38 special is on the good way ,the way of the success in the eighties.top class southern a o r.a must have.

| THEIR 2ND BEST ALBUM. PROBABLY THE BEST SOUTHERN ROCK OF ALL TIME. LYNYRD SKYNYRD WOULD HAVE BEEN DUE TO THEIR UNTIMELY TRAGIC PLANE CRASH. 38 SPECIAL PUT OUT A LOT OF MUSIC. CHAIN LIGHTNIN IS A MASTERPIECE SONG.

|A pre-warming to what was coming next..."Tour De Force" ....this one has some good moments such as "Caught Up In You","Chain Lightnin'","Rough-Housin'"(rocks!),"You Keep Runnin'Away" & "Take'Em Out"....recommended...86/100
