|I found out about this because I am a Def Leppard fan. I read somewhere that ex-Leppard Pete Willis had his own band named Roadhouse. So as soon as I got the chance of this record I bought it, it's good enough, I like 'Time' and most of the songs, although they all sound a like. No wonder it was produced by Pete Woodruff that's why it has a D.L. element on it, specially the sound. But never the less, it is a good record to have specially when travelling at night and staring by the window.

|Uhh. This one is close to beating the Donnie Miller cd as the worst on HEAVYHARMONIES (My opinion)

|It's a very good album. The reason why it wasn't very succesful is because (my opinion) it was realeased in a time when all that kind of music was not as accepted as it was in the mid 80's. It's a 'Firehouse' kind of style. It has a few 'too comercial' songs but the majority are very good. 'New Horizons' shows a bit of what Pete had done with Def Leppard. A great piece of collection for Def Leppard fans (I'm one of them). Produced by Pete Woodrofe & engineered by Mike Shipley.

|This album is one o' my all time favourites. It kicks major ass from the very start and continues straight 2 the finish. It spawned 3 singles in the UK. Needless 2 say, they didn't get anywhere near the charts. No surprise there then, when u consider that only crappy pop sells in Britain. The singer (Paul Jackson) had one o' the best voices I've ever heard and should have went on 2 bigger things after Roadhouse's 1 an' only album. It's a cryin' shame that this band never got any recognition.

|Vocalist sounds a lot like the Stage Dolls' lead singer. Material comes from the Atlantic-Giant school of mid-tempo AOR with Def Leppard-style drum sounds. A bit sluggish, but not bad overall. Pete Willis was in Def Leppard but this really doesn't have much of the same style as his old band.

|I just stumbled across this one day and honestly didn't expect anything much from it. I have to admit I was sort of blown away by what I heard. Not saying it's a brilliant CD, but the band has an awesome sound musically, and WALL of backing vocals. Check out tracks like 'Loving you', 'the beautiful 'Hell can wait' and the closer 'Desperation calling'. Awesome melodic rock with great vocals. A lot of good tunes on this one - recommended!

|I bought this when it first came out and it still gets played by me and that is sign that it is a good cd.There is only 1 weak track here.Stranger in your eyes is the only let down on an otherwise fine album.There were other tracks by this band that were released as b sides in Japan.I only wish one of those tracks had replaced track 9.That said if they ever re release this fine cd again I hope they include those long lost bonus tracks with it.Hell can wait is a brilliant ballad.

|Absolutely love this album. Bought the album 10 years ago or so. Wsnot sure what to expect bit wow some great songs on this record to be found: Join all hands, A little love, One heart, Time, Tower of Love. Its a crying shame they have not been able to put out more records. What a potential ! Anyone knows if the singer is still around ?Man can this guy sing !

|So please adjust the line up. Paul Jackson is the SINGER and not guitar player.

|Got this CD on a market last saturday for 1,00 . Did it in my car-cd-player and what I heard was great 80s stuff. Read about this cd once or twice but never got it in mind. When I saw the cd-cover I reminded and took it with me. Great music but awful cover. It looks like some 80s black music stuff. But once again, never judge a book by its cover!!!

|Fantastic CD. One of those albums I bought on the strength of it being related to another band I like (Willis/Leppard). While its not exactly Leppard sounding (although there are some elements), as a fan of bands like Giant etc, I totally loved this one. I played it at work one day, and one of the guys heard Hell can wait. He said it was a great song, and if it had been released by Bryan Adams, it woulda been a massive hit. Just shows the charts are about the artists not the songs!

|Really Very Good Melodic HardRock album. Itīs easy to recognize the Def Leppard influence(talking about production) but reminds of Bad Co,Giant,FM/Dare(singer) among others... Great/Catchy Choruses, really good singer, some great tunes and no fillers. My favorite songs are "Time"(the best!) "All Join Hands" "Desperation Calling" "Loving You" and "One Heart". Itīs a good buy Ferstyx, isnīt it? 8.8/10
||Date: April 3, 2008 at 22:10|
|Yes JC, is a great cd and Paul Jackson have a catchy vocal cords. Not awesome, but good record. Where are you Pete Willis ?.
||Date: September 3, 2008 at 20:23|
|Had this one for years it's VERY Def Leppard like all other reviews have stated, a good album nothing to blow your head off with but good. It's a nice change instead of the Leppard giving us over produced bubble gum rock...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

|Definitely better than anything Def Leppard did at the same time and probably better than Hysteria too. The lovely vocals coupled with the very melodic guitar playing on this album are sure to appeal to people on this site. My favourites are All Join Hands, Time, One Heart and New Horizon but really the whole album is great and very well produced. 90/100

|I can confirm also that the user paul.jackson above is the real Paul Jackson and his myspace is www.myspace.com/pauljacksonsongwriter

|Great CD ! Reminds me of Giant, which is a good thing. My favourite tracks are "Tower of Love", "Loving you" and Hell can wait".

|So many great songs on this album and I wonder why they could not make it.Too Def Leppard-ish?
|From: rick kerch vzla

|The Def Leppardish monicker for this band is kind of subliminal i think...probably Giant is more alike but far mellower than Dan Huff's outfit...the best shot gotta be "New Horizon" but also tracks 3,4,7,9 & 10 offer something appealing...a good decent album,no more that that IMHO...84/100

|I love this kind of music. Hard aor rock with catchy tunes, "multi-vocal" choruses and a powerful lead vocal with bluesy or southern vibes. Dusty roads, cheap whisky and my sweaty shirt... you'd better listen to Roadhouse, Giant, Bad Company or No Sweat (interesting how many of them are from America ). 85/100.

|ROADHOUSE relelased a masterpiece back in 91 ,totally influenced by the hair metal movement ,adding their perfect musicianship,approach ,vibe along with some of the BEST vocals 9lead&2nd ) ever heard!ALL the songs are excellent and can t see something missing here!essential and classy
||Date: September 22, 2014 at 13:55|
|agree with hair metal.this record is a masterpiece totally influenced by ....def leppard.this album is a pure def leppard record in the vein of "hysteria" or "adrenalyze".perfect sound perfect production ,only good songs absoluty no fillers.pete willis on guitars.so you have the perfect clone of def leppard.unfortunately ,no bonus track on the japan edition.
||Date: February 10, 2015 at 5:01|
|This may be "the album Def Leppard never recorded" to some. Yes, you can't deny similarities, but Roadhouse have their unique passages as well and the songs are excellent, especially "All Join Hands".
