After their last album reduced them to little more than jukebox pussies, Haywire decided to rock out with their cock out on "Nuthouse". This is Haywire's heaviest, most in-your-face album: a sign of the times. The glam metal gold rush mentality of the day can be heard loud and clear on "Operator Central", "Short End of A Wishbone" and, basically, the next 9 tracks.

From: Desslar Date: July 4, 2002 at 12:45
Bleah! Extremely generic and uninspired. Wild Wild is the only song worth listening to a second time. One of the VERY few CDs I've thrown away.

From: Mixaplic Date: December 15, 2002 at 11:28
This is not an aor cd! The vocals are warrant all the way but musically they have a rockin sound. The guitars on "She Drives" remind me alot of Black Sabbath. The rest of the music is hair metal but for the most part it rocks. If you like Warrant,Lillian Axe ect....you'll like this album. On a scale of one to ten:6 1/2

From: Chris Date: June 27, 2003 at 10:42
Oh dear.. I didn't like this when it first came out, and i still don't like it now. After releasing two rather excellent albums, the band went and released this bag of crap. For fans of AOR, stay clear of this one and buy the first two albums. You won't be disappointed.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: October 9, 2003 at 7:20
Parece ser q tras sus 2 primeros discos bastante aceptables q se movian entre el AOR y el Rock Melódico,quisieron probar q tal se les daba "rockear" un poquitin más, y eso es lo q hicieron en este disco donde el resultado final es Hard Rock del mas engorroso y cansino q te puedas llevar al oido,no hay ni un solo tema destacable..MEDIOCRIDAD ABSOLUTA.

From: JB Date: November 12, 2003 at 13:39
Vaya mierda de album... Me jode tirar la pasta de esta manera, la verdad.

From: GlenRavine Date: December 30, 2003 at 23:57
Obviously not as good as their first two - but its ok, nothing special - its a shame these guys were riding high after their first two. All in all - not bad. Worth a listen.

From: Ian Date: January 6, 2004 at 1:03
This is the ONLY Haywire album I liked in it's entirety. After releasing two albums of a.m. radio pabulum, they finally broke free of the record labels demands long enough to record this excellent rocking album. Definitely *not* geared towards the 12 year olds who liked the limp blandness of songs like "Black And Blue".

From: AOR freaky Date: January 6, 2004 at 10:55
Dear Ian, this is the worst Haywire record one can imagine ! This one is for 12 year old guys, poor, simple rocking stuff. Their first albums, like Chris said, are the real stuff. Go and buy their two first, great AOR records ! And forget this one, please !

From: Geoff Date: February 11, 2005 at 23:34
These could write a horrible filler with the best of them, but 'Wild wild' is a cool track. and 'Taken the pain' is a tremendous ballad. There is one more good song (is it 'She drives'?) but aside from that it gets a little messy. Way too inconsistent for me, but there are three very good tracks.

From: Lennie Date: April 13, 2005 at 14:14
Yes Geoff and add to that 'Push 'n Shove' with its awesome guitar and youve pretty much summed the album up nicely. Shame they couldnt match these tracks throughout. It is inconsistent but the highs are class ...sounding like a mix of Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and Company of wolves (perhaps??) but not as good as any of them individually.

From: vandervelde Date: February 14, 2006 at 11:51
well, for me this is very good hard rockin' release...a mix of Aerosmith, Wildside,Warrant some Trixter(especially from Hear!)...very groovy with a little hint of funk in some places...i agree that some track sounds little generic but choruses like in Wild Wild or She Drives, or very powerfull Operation Central makes me worth to have this cd...7/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 31, 2010 at 20:45
This is the band's rockiest album!..a very good release but they have always been involved into the melodic/pop/AOR more than being an straight forward rock band so this one might be intereresting to have.."She Drives" & "Livin' It Up" are my faves ones but we have in here energetic songs such as "Operator Central","Short End Of A Wishbone","Wild Wild" a cool one,"Temble In Line" is ala Tesla(?!) and "Taken The Pain" that is a nice ballad..explendid band that gave us this album in order to let us know that they could also rock hard!.88/100
