I haven't listened to all of Accept's work, but I do know that this release is awesome! Not a bad track on the album. Lead vocals are raw and powerful with loads of conviction. Plenty of guitar power up front with bass and drums mixed well. Most material is melodic heavy metal. Title cut is excellent with the eerie synth intro and the next 5 tracks are all stand-outs. Check out 'Screaming for a Love Bite'... that's the way to do a rock ballad!

Just a masrepiece!!!A metal diamond!!!!No more words.......Just buy it!!!!!!!!

AWESOME! End of story!

From: Steve T Date: July 29, 2002 at 7:28
Better than BTTW but still behind R&W. Title track is excellent but the rest is a blur most of the time.

From: Shadowlands Date: August 17, 2002 at 8:43
The best in the genre. You have to have it. But the last track is called 'Bound to FAIL' and not 'Bound to FALL'. Excuse ACCEPTed.

From: B. CASARIN -MEX Date: September 6, 2002 at 23:42
melodicamente metalero 78/100

From: Kyle Date: September 16, 2002 at 5:18
Accept, are cool, I found a shop with really cheap Accept Albums like '3.99 each!, But Metal heart is not their, However I have heard Metal Heart and Midnight Mover adn they are both 'AMAZING' So hopefully I'll get metal heart soon. ^_^

From: Desslar Date: September 19, 2002 at 12:15
This is a pretty good metal album, though nothing really exceptional. Sounds a bit like an AC/DC and Scorpions collaboration. The vocals do take a bit of getting used to. After the great track 6 the album falls apart.

From: Borkforker33 Date: October 4, 2002 at 22:39
Up To the Limit. A metal classic!!

From: Nev Date: October 16, 2002 at 8:01
1000n Balls but still short of R&W...still I love it and it's worth a buy

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: November 24, 2002 at 8:25
Practicamente lo dicho en el anterior album me vale para este,heavy del de antes,del bueno,del de las chupas de cuero,mu'equeras de pinchos y pantal'n ce'ido...GRAN DISCO.

From: Mehmet HBO Date: March 15, 2003 at 17:27
It is a masterpiece LP, a classic for sure.Especially midnight mover and wrong is wright.

From: rising power Date: March 24, 2003 at 2:37
This record is so unbelievebly catchy. You can do nothing but bang your head to this. Accept has got the second best groove in the world (The first as you probably guesed are there soulmates from down under) When I hear this record I can only imigane a bus full of drunken German metalfans singing along to a tape of this record wlile driving of to the Wacken Open Air festival.

From: RR-Finland Date: September 1, 2003 at 11:59
(For above)Yes, and those drunken Germans in that buss compares who has the best schenker-mustaches,heh heh. Sorry Germs, nothing personal! Ok, about the record, Very strong album (again) and it is one of those tapes I got about 8 years old! Well, still listening but now from cd. Monsters of Rock!!

From: keebler Date: October 4, 2003 at 14:04
another good cd i think i played this one more than balls to the wall.

From: Metal Pete Date: January 22, 2004 at 14:57
I really like Accept, and this release is my favorite of all. Balls to Wall got them noticed, but this one surpasses it in METAL excellence!! Listen to the haunting choruses (Metal Heart, Bound to Fail) and the tasty riffs! (Screaming for a love bite, midnight mover...all of them!) An incredible piece of work, their absolute best. A perfect 10!!!!

From: Laurent Brient Date: March 14, 2004 at 23:03
One of the best heavy metal lp of all time. Accept is a great band and Metal Heart is their best lp (with Balls to the Wall), very melodic and very heavy at the same time. It's sad because Accept is unknown outside of Europe. Metal Heart is a masterpiece and a classic in the heavy metal universe. You must have this lp if you like the heavy metal.

From: Metal T Date: June 10, 2004 at 11:19
Great german band,Great album,Strong songs! They don't make em' like this anymore.Probably the best band to ever come out of 'Deutschland'

From: rafa Date: June 15, 2004 at 14:28
cuando olles la cancion metal heart por primera vez tedas cuenta que esta gente estaba hecha de otra pasta que solo de guitarra y que melodia gracias a beethoven un 10

From: Big Papa K Date: June 19, 2004 at 1:28
I actually like this one more than the more popular 'Balls To The Wall' album. The songs get catchier here, and 'Midnight Mover' might be their catchiest song ever, but the video for it is unwatchable. Strong album throughout. 9/10

From: CheeseStooge24 Date: July 15, 2004 at 9:23
I have always thought that this was the best metal album of 1985. Accept showed alot of strength in songwriting and in muscianship with this one, Balls To The Wall & Reckless And Wild. Such a shame that some rocket scientist convinced them to ditch Udo and go for a more commercial sound. That pretty much killed my interest in them, but Metal Heart is a must have cd.

From: Date: August 10, 2004 at 17:21
Screaming for a Lovebite.Oh god!that's a f....g hit!Great melodic metal.Typical 80's stuff,great production.Great songs.A must really.

From: Milton_Chile Date: August 25, 2004 at 15:46
Cuando me inici' en la m'sica metal, lo hice sin lugar a duads con Accept.Para m' los mayores exponentes del metal cl'sico europeo junto a Maiden. Ten'a 12 a'os cuando los escuch' por 1ra vez. Ahora tengo 31 a'os y a'n no ha cambiado en nada el sentimiento y mi gusto musical por ellos...son geniales...Ojal' en un futuro no muy lejano se junte Wolf Hoffmann y Udo (y todos los dem's) y relaicen una gira mundial donde puedan venir a Chile...ya que ac' tienen muchos fans.Alguien traiga a UDO a Chile

From: Blue Charvel Date: August 26, 2004 at 16:26
If by 'Riktigt Bra Skiva' you mean, 'this kicks ass' I agree 100%! This is my 3rd favorite Accept, Restless being first, and Balls being second. On this one the riffs were absolutely killer but it's almost like they tried to be more melodic than Udo could pull off without sounding silly. Still kicks ass those as mentioned previously...

From: metallian Date: December 7, 2004 at 13:56
Good album, a more commercial taste, but without losing the heavy in the metal...COOL! 'Metal Heart' being my favorite one of all the songs here, but I like 'em all!

From: ����87 Date: January 10, 2005 at 14:01
KILLER ALBUM!!!THERE BEST!!'''' ''''' '''!!!

From: Carmine Rose Date: January 31, 2005 at 20:23
Killer stuff, watch out, you'll get motion sickness if you try to watch the video for Midnight Mover.

From: onemorecast Date: February 19, 2005 at 0:31
I bought this because of midnight mover, the rest of the cd is so so. Screaming for a love bite is good, but it is more of a pop song, like poison or somebody. Udo is not a pretty boy and shouldn't be singing stuff like that. I do like the raw power of his voice.

From: Chad Date: June 4, 2005 at 0:08
Solid album. Even back in the day, this one was an album that grew on you. Sure it is a bit more commercial than the previous albums but only in certain places.Screaming for a love bite has radio hit all over it but then they push Metal Heart in your face and snap your neck back into the Accept sound. This one was a staple for me growing up in the 80's. Midnight Mover and Up to the Limit round out the best tunes on the album with the aforementioned. A great album by Accept. Highly Recommended.

From: Nick C Date: June 13, 2006 at 21:35
Ahhh! Back on track, a little bit more commercial sounding (if you can call Accept that). The song writing is brilliant .. catchy yet as heavy as f*ck. Screaming for a Love Bite is fantastic as is the title track and Too High to Get it Right (Their version of Aerosmith's Get It Up haha!). Great album from start to finish - maybe not as raw as R&W or Breaker but well worth grabbing!

From: WASP1 Date: June 26, 2006 at 19:32
The songwriting and production are fantastic here. This album played to the band's strengths and it worked. It's also held up very well for being 21 years old.

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 31, 2006 at 13:15
When it comes to Accept, this is as good as it gets, as far as I'm concerned!!! Perfectly executed from beginning to end, this is Accept at the top of their game. Both in writing and sound. 'Midnight Mover', 'Screaming For A love Bite', 'Dogs On Leads', and 'Living For Tonight' are some of the most melodic stuff this band has ever done and yes it is still raw as hell. How could it not be with Udo singing. The guy gargles with drain cleaner for God's sake. An 80's metal classic and a MUST HAVE!!!

From: metalhead4life Date: September 1, 2009 at 12:09
Definitely an 80's metal classic; solid, catchy, straight forward metal all the way through. While Udo isn't the greatest singer, the songs kick ass. His gravel vocals do kinda fit well. You won't be disappointed with this one. 80/100

From: Faron Date: September 24, 2009 at 11:15
The classics keep coming, another great album.

From: metalmajo Date: November 7, 2009 at 20:25
absolutly amazing

From: edwithmj Date: January 19, 2011 at 17:01
Screaming For A Love-Bite is definitely one of their best songs for me. Living For Tonite and Bound To Fail are also excellent heavy metal masterpieces. If you like it heavy, loud and fast with AC/DC style vocals, you will love this.

From: halfordhughes Date: May 15, 2011 at 4:12
Accept's best album!!!

From: hair metal again Date: July 23, 2012 at 1:50
excellent release ,with great production by mr Dierks and many great commercial songs!the sound is clear and powerful and the songwriting of the highest level!many anthems like "screaming for a love bite","midnight mover","living for tonite" and "metal heart " are classics!must have for sure!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 13, 2016 at 19:13
This is really a pleasant one...typical HM sound but played with that commercial side that many bands did in mid 80's,even with some AOR feel as well...fave ones of mine are 1(best cut),2,3,4,5(AORish),9 & 10...highly recommended stuff...87/100
