Sounds like a decent metal album here, does anybody have a copy they could copy me? friday13th@robhalford.com

From: jens Date: July 20, 2002 at 1:53
it is a great low key metal album. i got it around the time when i got AXXIS II and PINK CREAM 69... it fits into the mix, and is the hardest of the three. recommended to listen to!

A killer. Whoever had seen these guys live, how much power - and great guitars - they have! Look out for their latest very-heavy release "gasolined" or X-roads-guitar-maniac Stefan Ellerhorst's solo "egotrip"!

From: Geoff Date: March 8, 2005 at 6:00
This is good solid hard rock, very well played. 'Fire in heartland' is a very good ballad, but these guys rock hard and good too.

From: Kid Me Date: March 29, 2005 at 9:29
A great debut! Very outstanding guitars, - both axemen stover and ellerhorst are fast but soulful and technically brilliant - a bruce Dickinson-like singer and great songs. Highlights: I am what i am (a must!), borderline, streetrhythm, wishing well and their live-hymn walking in the shadows. The production of Tony AC/DC Platt is not his best work but o.k. If you miss them live, you missed one the very best metal-shows in the 90s! Look for gasolined and, just for fans, the funky egotrip-solo.

From: metalmaniac777 Date: December 27, 2006 at 12:06
Hard-edged, heavy-hitting, attitude-fueled melodic hard rock/metal that sounds like a cross between Shakra and Johnny Crash. Perfect for cranking up on those long road trips, where the monster guitars should keep your foot firmly pasted to the pedal and the pedal firmly pasted to the floor. Produced by the one-and-only Tony Platt, the guy who fiddled with the knobs for Lillian Axe, so you know it sounds damn good. Folks should be going wild to get this one in their collection.

From: aTomiK Date: August 8, 2007 at 6:44
Good melodic hard rock album. My faves: "The Wishing Well", "Shakedown", "Voodoo", "Mr. Hi Stuff" & "Street Rhythm".

From: shoemaker Date: August 8, 2007 at 9:35
Nothing special. "Itīs voodoo what you do.." poor lyric.

From: erik Date: August 8, 2007 at 9:46
shoemaker anybody who calls this nothing special and says about Vice - Second Excess that there is only one bearable song on the entire album wont be taken (too) seriously here. Just try and look sometimes at things as the glass is halffull and not....but keep making your comments though in the way you do. Your good for a laugh

Great Album...

From: kamd Date: July 12, 2011 at 9:02
just ok for me

From: kamd Date: July 12, 2011 at 9:03
but cover is my style.I like this cover

From: 123charpenay Date: May 2, 2018 at 13:56
decent german hard rock.nothing extraordinary.this record with a very dry sound of drums is absoluty not a priority.

From: hair metal again Date: July 24, 2020 at 13:17
excellent hard rock release from CROSSROADS a band that is criminally underrated as they have offered us 3 gems but never had the praise of the fans!their debut is explosive with strong vocals ,sensational guitar work and songs like "what i am","fire in heartland",'voodoo" and "the wishing well"!essential
