excellent album from a very underrated band.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: November 24, 2002 at 8:31
No se cuantas veces e leido que en este disco bajaron el nivel,QUE COJONES este disco es el mejor de Accept,son los de siempre aunque llevan aires mas melodicos digamos que siguen la estela de discos como el Turbo de Judas,Somewhere de los Maiden o el Inside The Electric de los W.A.S.P.que son de lo mejor de sus discografias tambien,por lo tanto,DISCO EXCELENTE.

From: Gar Date: February 21, 2003 at 7:00
OK album. Nothing earth shattering, but if you like their other stuff there's no reason you shouldn't like this as well. This album kinda returned Accept back to their roots after the more commercial sounding METAL HEART.

From: RR-Finland Date: September 1, 2003 at 11:40
Very high quality Accept album. This was last album (for a while) with Udo on vocals , before he formed he's own U.D.O. band. By the way, why Heavy Harmonies doesn't notice U.D.O. records? Anyways, this is one of my fav Accept also and one thing that makes Accept so special, is their powerfull backround vocals. For example Monsterman, Russian Roulette and Aiming High. Can you dig it?

From: keebler Date: October 4, 2003 at 14:06
good cd and the last accept cd i bought.

From: Scott Date: December 30, 2003 at 12:45
Not a bad Accept album, but no where near as memorable as any of the last four albums. The songwriting just wasn't as memorable, and the energy that was present on albums like 'Balls to the Wall', 'Restless and Wild' and even 'Metal Heart' just isn't there. Anyone know why Udo left at this point? I have read that he didn't like the direction that Wolf wanted to take. Also read that the record company sort or pushed him to leave. Anyone???

From: Fat Freddy Date: December 30, 2003 at 15:27
Depends on who you talk to Scott. I've read that the record co. wanted to push Accept in a more commercial direction and told the band that Udo's voice wasn't really suitable for that kind of material. Seeing dollar signs in their eyes, the rest of the band started writing more commercial songs and when Udo said 'I can't sing this stuff,' they told him 'OK, fine, goodbye.' Udo went on to form his own band and he had two records out by the time Accept finally replaced him on Eat The Heat.

From: Fat Freddy Date: December 30, 2003 at 15:28
(Continued from previous post)... obviously Eat The Heat tanked and Accept split up mid-way through their tour with David Reece (later in Bangalore Choir) on vocals. Accept got back together with Udo for a few more records in the 90s, but still, nothing touches the Balls to the Wall, Restless & Wild, or Metal Heart albums in my book.

From: Metal Pete Date: January 22, 2004 at 15:03
Another fine record from the boys. More of a concept piece, but still rocking with catchy hooks and all. I like it a lot! Aiming High, Stand Tight, Monsterman, the title cut all rock very well. How ironic they tossed Udo and made the absolutely terrible eat the meat garbage. Learn, ye record execs, LEARN! Udo IS Accept. There is no Accept without Udo. To say so is blasphemy and punishable by death! ;-)

From: Aldas Date: April 18, 2004 at 17:56
It is a very good album. Kind of heavy but at the same time very catchy. And unmistacable voice of Udo Dirkschneider.

From: Metal T Date: May 17, 2004 at 9:49
I didn't like Roulette' too well when it came out,but it definitely has aged well and ive learned to love it.It's d*mn good !--You have to admire some of these German bands (Accept,Scorps,Primal Fear, Helloween) cause they definitely understand what true metal is all about .

From: rafa Date: June 18, 2004 at 13:35
es una lastima pero este fue el ultimo gran cd de accept es una lastima que de esta banda se fuera udo por cierto el viernes que viene lo vamos a ver en el metalmania que ganas tengo.

From: Monsterman Date: December 23, 2004 at 18:34
Accept is my all time favorite band. And i say Russian Roulette is the best album of Accept. I have listen Accept almost 20 years and and i have still their cassette in car stereo. I don't know why i like this band so much, but i still listen Accept every day. I almost make Accept logo tattoo last summer in my arm, but i don't cause i run out of money. But in year 2005 plan i think make this all time plan i will take Accept tattoo in my arm, because i have money to do it. AccepT is my all life

From: Kamax Date: April 30, 2005 at 8:38
se habla generalmente de trilogias en el caso del heavy metal, pero Accept fue mas alla y logro hacerse de cinco piezas de antologia para los metaleros de todo el mundo: breaker, restless & wild, balls to the wall, metal heart y russian roulette. Piezas de culto en la discoteca de cualquier heavy. 'icicle brains.........' ARRIBA ACCEPT!!!!!!!

From: Chad Date: June 4, 2005 at 0:19
This one took awhile to get used to even though it pretty much follows the same pattern as Metal Heart. Standout tracks are Mosterman,Heaven is Hell,Another Second to Be and Walking in the Shadows. Certainly worth picking up. This one has stood the test of time and still gets played with regularity by yours truly.

From: greenmanelishi Date: February 20, 2006 at 12:36
q grandes sois MONSTERMAN y KAMAX, me habeis emocionado, mejor no lo podiais haber dicho. very good METAL PETE, you have reason, people has to have more respect to UDO, and probably this is the TRUE story, going against all the things that are appearing recently on the magazines, given by Wolf. But we don't know the true story, we can't believe to Wolf and also we cannot believe to Udo. There was too much struggle within the egos of these musicians. Everyone will tell his own version of facts.

From: greenmanelishi Date: February 20, 2006 at 12:44
And this cause too much confusion. The better thing here, is to leave this topic, and think that the huge,shattering and amazing quality and true chemistry comes from ACCEPT, a perfect machinery, that has every piece on his right place, and every piece needs each other. However, is true and obvious that Udo and Wolf had carried the most part of the essence of the Accept's music. But anyway, it doesn't matter who had the most part of it. They were a PERFECT TEAM, and that's the important.

From: greenmanelishi Date: February 20, 2006 at 12:53
By the way, I wanna write here to express my TRUE LOVE to ONE OF THE BEST RECORDS EVER MADE IN THE STORY OF MUSIC. For me, this band is THE BEST BAND OF PURE HEAVY METAL with JUDAS PRIEST as well. I have listened this band since I was 4 years old, I grew up with this GODS, and today I can say they have a big place in my heart.It's hard to find a way to choose one record to be the best, but I think is the BEST record of ACCEPT, because has a lot of POWER combined with a very polished production.

From: greenmanelishi Date: February 20, 2006 at 13:02
There has to be one monument somewhere in the world to express the INFINITE QUALITY of this INMORTAL MASTERPIECE. Russian roulette is a MILESTONE of heavy metal. It gives solid, savage and extremely powerful hymns like AIMING HIGH (probably my favourite song of ACCEPT), MONSTERMAN (a perfect riff), TVWAR (back to the roots of the speed of fast as a shark), ANOTHER SECOND TO BE (an amazing and strong cavalcade rythm)and the frightening, cinic and satanic HEAVEN IS HELL. Also, it has a precious...

From: greenmanelishi Date: February 20, 2006 at 13:15
..precious tunes like IT'S HARD TO FIND A WAY (the beauty of its melody proves it),the military STAND TIGHT or the melodic choruses and guitar picks of MAN ENOUGH TO CRY. Also,I have to mention the EXPLOSION of the SMASHING AND HEAVY CHORUS of RUSSIAN ROULETTE, with that strong choir of low tones combined with the high-ranged, furious and raw voice of THE GOD UDO. IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO LISTEN TO RUSSIAN ROULETTE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HEAVY METAL IS, as the REST OF PREVIOUS ALBUMS AS WELL.

From: greenmanelishi Date: February 20, 2006 at 13:18

From: Metal T Date: February 22, 2006 at 18:07
Well,it's refreshing to see someone really enthusiastic over a real metal band like 'Accept'.I remember back in the day when some of the critics pissed on this band calling them a 'poor man's Judas Priest','the doubtful sons of Priest'or whatever.It really doesn't matter though,cause anyone who knew anything about what real metal was knew these guys were among the cream of the crop.Proof was in their albums and stellar live show.RR' was a fine Lp.'Accept' bled heavy metal..d*mn did they crank !

From: Nick C Date: June 13, 2006 at 21:47
Following on from the Live release Kaizoku Ban this was I'm ashamed to say now, my last Accept purchase. The band have heavied up again somewhat after the last studio effort Metal Heart. T.V War firmly states the bands intent on this release and it's a corker. Well I have to say I'm gonna grab the bands post RR output some point soon, I'll skip Eat the Heat though (heard it way back and wasn't impressed). Wierd thing was I remember seeing a video from O.O. and raving about it yet did nothing

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 31, 2006 at 13:32
Well, what do I say about this one? Is it good, yes. Is is great, hardly. While there are a few really killer tunes to be found here, the rest is quite forgetable and that is tough for this Accept fan to say, but sometimes it is what it is I guess. The good songs are just as good as any other classic Accept song and really bring it home, but like I said the rest...not so good. Shame. Accept fans will still probably like it.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 3, 2007 at 13:30
Otra Joya en estilo estoy viendo la forma de sacar la voz de Udo de estos albums y meter a Mark Free

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 3, 2007 at 20:46
Veo que no te agrada Udo amigo Rafo.Acaso es asi de malo????

From: juan carlos Date: April 4, 2007 at 13:44
El legado de Accept con UDO a la cabeza ser' siempre imperecedero, todos(la mayor'a para no ser t'n dr'sticos) los que empezamos en esto del Heavy Metal lo saben. Que no agrade a algunos pues es v'lido, en todo caso simplemente Accept no es para todo el mundo, asi de simple. Saludos.

From: CS2007 Date: December 22, 2007 at 20:35
1986 was unquestionably one of the best years in the history of metal. Slayer - Reign in Blood, Metallica - Master of Puppets, Kreator - Pleasure to Kill, Fates Warning - Awaken the Guardian, Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time, etc., all got released. This is another solid album released in 1986. Accept's most underrated album. The best songs on here are 'Aiming High', 'Monsterman', 'It's Hard to Find a Way', 'Another Second to Be', and the title track.

From: juan carlos Date: December 23, 2007 at 0:24
Hey CS2007 you nailed it. SLAYER 'Reign In Blood' is the Best Thrash Ever and Kreator Sodom Metallica Iron Maiden fates Warning Accept Manowar and many more bands that Released Albums in 1986 are The True Masters of Metal Period.

From: lalo r.o.c.k. Date: September 19, 2010 at 18:02
ACCEPT one of my favorites bands,the songs stayed inmortal for all time,a Heavy Metal classic,as UDO says in Aiming High stay HARD AND HEAVY...10/10.

From: hair metal again Date: January 9, 2015 at 4:28
