This is a comp of their first 3 albums. Find 'Breaker' or the real 'Accept' self titled album instead.

From: wadelink Date: March 29, 2002 at 23:20
this is a really cool album early sounding accept

From: Kim Date: August 1, 2002 at 14:40
How come the best band in Hard Rock/Heavy Metal isnt listed in either this site or in Brutalmetal IM TALKIMG ABOUT JUDAS PRIEST.................. No one above, beside, but loads of bands below them.

From: rising power Date: March 24, 2003 at 1:55
This record sounds dirty,aggresive and ultra-heavy. I like the strange choirs that sometimes appear too. Remember this was all recorded before the NWOBHM.

From: RR-Finland Date: September 1, 2003 at 13:12
Debut album. It's possible, that the sounds of this album are bit old fashioned, but these are treasures for a Accept fans. Get this one on vinyl, if you can find it!

From: Scandinavia Date: September 19, 2003 at 5:29
Ever wondered what UDO sounds like with clean vocals??? Get this one...This was before he started mixing Jack D with over-filled ashtrays for breakfast...

From: Scott Date: December 30, 2003 at 12:49
This is NOT a compilation as suggested above, but rather the bands debut. This one reminds me of early Scorpions and UFO. Touches on the greatness to come, but no where near as brilliant as what the band would do in the next few years. I own this one on vinyl and CD. Still prefer the warmer sound of the vinyl.

I have copy's of all Accept Albums . if anyone needs a copy thats out of print let me know . Doug

From: Gar Date: February 12, 2004 at 13:20
There are some good songs on this, but the production's so weak that it sounds more like a demo. Not a bad start for the band, but their 2nd album 'I'm a Rebel' was a big improvement over this in terms of songwriting and production.

Good CD

From: rafa Date: June 15, 2004 at 14:18
la leche que bueno y mas para ser en el a'o 79 que ca'a y que baladas tan dulces todo un clasico del heavy metal y todo lo que vendria despues de lo mejor del heavy

From: Juan Mercado Date: October 7, 2004 at 21:33
This is a true HEAVY METAL BAND!!! That`s the way has to be the heavy metal ACCEPT RULES!!

From: metallian Date: December 7, 2004 at 13:20
This is their debut. No 'Balls To The Wall' sound here, but still worth...if you wanna hear early Accept, that is.

From: QuarterBoy Date: December 18, 2004 at 3:05
This album is very bad,the songs just don't make it to Accept classic catalog,and the production is pure shit.I agree that I'm a rebel has a better production,but not better songs,it's just as bad or even worse than this.This has always been one of my favourite bands,but I prefer Breaker,my Accept favourite album.The best songs here for me are the two sung by Peter (as happens with I'm a rebel) and Glad to be alone.

From: Nick C Date: June 13, 2006 at 20:50
1979 Who'd a thought it. I bought this way back then and got well into the band, only to desert them after the Russian Roulette album and unfortunately never got back into them when they re-united later on. This for me is a monster of an album but may sound a bit odd for post Breaker fans (when the band really did start making waves). Some great songs like Helldriver, Sounds of War and the ballad Seawinds showed promise more so than their Brain label compatriots Scorpions Lonesome Crow album.

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 30, 2006 at 18:10
Having cut my teeth on 'Metal Heart', when I first heard this one, I was kinda like 'What the f*ck happend to Accept. After my initial shock, I just listened to the album for what it was and while week by Accept standards, it does have a few redeaming moments. 'Lady Lou', 'Seawinds', and 'Helldriver' are on Par with early Scorpions or Ufo. Not bad, but not great by any means.

From: Faron Date: September 24, 2009 at 11:01
Decent but dated introduction to a very good band. My favourite tracks are Seawinds and Glad To Be Alone.

From: hair metal again Date: March 11, 2015 at 10:37
ok debut by ACCEPT back in 79 , with their sound being somewhere between early SCORPIONS and the nwobhm one!the guitar work is excellent and the whole result pretty alive and warm!very good band from the start ,young &naive!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 20, 2016 at 11:39
With all my due respect but this was an aweful beginning of the teutonic warriors,quite a poor debut for a band that thanks to the almighty Lord became successful afterward...only 1 track is fine with me("That's Rock and Roll")...50/100
