From: jielpe Date: December 15, 2001 at 7:56
pop for teenagers!!!Don't listen this one, but the 1st, 2nd,3rd and the live.

From: koogles Date: January 2, 2002 at 6:06
Ignore the above review. This is Angel's best CD and every track is armed with a memorable chorus. Excellent harmonies and top-grade pop sensibilities with enough guitar edge to keep it rock. Why this album never sprung Angel from the ranks of "who are they?" is beyond me.

From: Pablo Date: January 20, 2002 at 21:52
I agree this is a great album very listenable. Why did this not make them famous?

From: Bander Date: March 28, 2002 at 5:15
Angel was a band five years ahead of their time. If they would have released "White Hot'" and "Sinful" in the early to mid 80's they would have been a huge success. The 80's would have been great for Angel because of MTV and the acceptance of AOR metal on top 40 radio stations. Angel had little help and Casablanca dropped the ball. Saw Angel open for Nugent in 79. Awesome band! Get this album!!

From: Carl R. Date: May 23, 2002 at 6:00
Ditto for the positive "sinful" review! It has TONS of memorable hooks.We all know Punky was not Yngwie but the album was great to listen to-every single song.In 2002 it is still ahead of it's time

From: Metal Man Date: October 9, 2002 at 16:21
A true classic. Each song is a memorable melody. I prefer some of the earlier stuff, but, I agree, this is the one that should have put themm over the top.

From: Doogbomb Date: October 30, 2002 at 19:29
Are they ever going to remsater these great albums. Saw them open for KISS. Also toured the Rock-N-Roll Marathon with Frank Marino, Humble Pie, Mothers Finest. Wish I could find that tour shirt. Any Angel tour shirt for that matter. Anyone know where I can find a "Large" Angel tour shirt, email me at doogbomb69@hotmail.com

From: Scott Date: December 13, 2002 at 19:33
Angel's last studio disc for ten years is actually a lot better than most reviewers said. Granted it's in a more pop oriented direction, but overall it's still one fine rock 'n roll disc. Originally this album was to be called "Bad Publicity" and had a totally different cover. Apparently, however, the label felt this would ruin Angel's image. Both covers are included in the CD re-issue as well as a couple of bonus tracks. Check out my Angel page www.nolifetilmetal.com/angel.htm

From: Tony Date: March 27, 2003 at 3:37
A great 1-2 album punch with this and "White Hot". Just almost perfect pomp-metal that provided a guideline for all the 80's hair bands in terms of songwriting and image. As "pop" as they ever got too but were still able to obtain a certain 70's hard rock element throughout this album. The ONE band that leaves you scratching your melon going "How the f#@k were these guys not huge??". Brandt had a great Bonham-like sound and Punky had a unmistakeable sound and tone which is very unique.

From: Gar Date: March 30, 2003 at 0:37
The opening track "Don't Take Your Love" is a stunner. The rest of the album definitely measures up as well. They did away with the prog rock elements that detracted from their earlier albums. SINFUL(along with WHITE HOT) stands the test of time quite nicely. A worthy addition to anyone's collection.

From: Rick D. Date: April 3, 2003 at 17:48
This albums rocks BIGTIME. Angel's finest moment on vinyl. This along with their self titled and On Earth represent Angel in it's truest form. This band is huge in my heart!!!

From: steve Date: April 6, 2003 at 10:39
one of the best rock/pop albums ever.essential listening and a great collection of songs.their finest moment

From: Vince Date: April 15, 2003 at 4:31
Bought this casette years ago and have been a huge fan ever since. I agree with much that has been said already. Sinful is a great collection of songs that never gets old and Angel might possibly be the greatest band that most people haven't heard of. I have been and alwys will be a HUGE fan! Rock On!

From: MIKE S Date: April 29, 2003 at 2:24
Some of these LPs actually WERE released with"Bad Publicity" as the title printed on the record itself,while the jacket title was"Sinful". Anybody know what a copy like this is worth?? Was fortunate to see ANGEL on the above mentioned"Marathon"tour w/Marino&Humble Pie in 1980. One of the best live sets I have ever seen in 25+ years of concertgoing! FANTASTIC BAND!!! Haven't seen anyone comment on their clever logo(reads the same upside down as right side up!)

From: jpw Date: August 11, 2003 at 17:31
This album was disappointing to me. Too Top 40ish. HeluvaBand was probably the better of the 5, followed closely by Angel, On Earth, and White Hot. Sinful is a very distant fifth. Good album to play in your dorm room with a girl, but not to party with the guys with! It will be great to hear the new Angel CD with Steve Blaze next year!! Angel Roxx!

From: punkys comb Date: January 1, 2004 at 16:38
this album is cool,brilliant cover and great songs!!!

From: Dex Date: January 6, 2004 at 17:58
What more can you say way ahead of their time.should have been as big as Kiss this band

From: Sinner Date: February 20, 2004 at 4:03
Everything before this album had street edge rough raucious rock, but sadly, to go out on a bad note does not warrant most to look back into the treasure chest when the label dissuades so. The logo is brilliant tho, & the music stellar, carfty, & infectious....just avoid Sinful, unless of course, there is a single of "BAD TIME". Recommended; i)helluva band 2)on earth as it is in heaven 3)angel 4)white hot 5)sinful *** dying to finally hear "without a net" Angel fans----itrock.tripod.com

From: sinner Date: February 20, 2004 at 4:17
IN THAT ORDER!!! the fortune I was beginning to say how they are like Zep or blah, blah,but,----they are quite unique but still with assets shared by other 70's prog/hard rock acts.A missing faction to what many would consider the zeitgeist of the era.I doubt Angel can stay a secret- they will reverse-obsoletion & collect their deserved due!!! AMEN.

From: michael rega Date: April 18, 2004 at 22:51
let me just sum up ANGEL in one word...GODSENT..because as a musician..thats what they are to me, and i know alot of non-musicians that feel the same. my first ANGEL album was WHITE HOT..i was 13...i just turned 41 and the last cd i bought was ANGEL ANTHOLOGY...HOLY SHIT..HOLY SHIT..ANGEL4EVER. MIKE REGA

From: bubby Date: April 27, 2004 at 0:18
the most melodic and great song writing by punky .la lady wild and hot and lovers live on are classic angel at their best this is one band I seriously miss

From: Rycheage Date: May 12, 2004 at 23:18
Out of the blocks comes 'Don't Take Your Love', a natural AOR anthem complete with hooks and a big chorus. 'LA Lady' keeps the tempo high. 'Bad Time' is another great song, bringing back the pomp keys with plenty of melodic drama. On 'Waited A Long Time', once again there are catchy hooks and a memorable chorus. On the ballad 'I'll Never Fall In Love Again', we're treated to some gradiose pomp keys during yet another strong chorus.'Lovers Live On' that closes off a great album.

From: Dave Date: August 27, 2004 at 7:04
What a band , what an album.This band were way ahead of their time.They were big in the states and japan but should have been huge world wide.

From: kingfozzy Date: September 9, 2004 at 6:45
Can anyone tell me if the US CD release of this album included the two songs from the Foxes soundtrack?!?!

From: rocketron Date: September 9, 2004 at 7:02
To Kingfozzy - Yes - the 2 tracks were "20th Century Foxes" and "Virginia" - both produced by George Morodor.

From: kingfozzy Date: September 13, 2004 at 3:37
Thanks RocketRon! Now all I have to do is track one down.

My 2nd favourite in the Angel discography after the pomptastic debut. This is a lot different, a lot more pop metal in it's direction. As mentioned above, this is choc full of great songs, with memorable choruses, that will have you humming them for days later. Should have been a massive band but weren't - where is the justice people???

From: Date: April 2, 2005 at 1:22
Also got this one for under five dollars on vinyl.

From: LilAl Date: April 4, 2005 at 20:03
Got to meet Punky Meadows and the bass player at a local laundromat in '78. They were in town playing a local University with Starz.

From: juan carlos Date: June 8, 2007 at 11:40
Cortísima la duración del album pero para mí un pelín mejor que el "White Hot", es decir, en mi opinión éste es el mejor disco de toda su carrera (y el último que sacaron). "Don't Take Your Love" mi favorita junto a "Bad Time", la balada "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" tambien muy buena con un inicio que me recordó a los Beatles, "Wild and Hot" las mejores. "Walk Away Renee" de los The Left Banke es versionada por Angel aquí pero no entró al final, una lástima pues es buena la versión. 8.7/10

From: Animal! Date: January 24, 2011 at 20:41
To me this is their best, song for song better than the others, I give this a 9 out of 10.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 19, 2011 at 21:42
Leaving the Pomp side aside and giving it for a more commercial and "pop" side came the last album of Angel(Giuffria era)...the album surely brings excellent songs such as "Don't take Your Love","Just Can't Take It","Waited A Long Time","I'll Bring The Whole World To Your Door"(catchy)& "Lovers Live On"(great!)...recommended album IMHO...83/100

From: elljam Date: December 27, 2011 at 10:44
Probably the blueprint for the 80's bands like Def Leppard,Bon Jovi etc. Great production for the time & melodies with big choruses that you could remember after one listen. Favourites are "LA Lady", "Bad Time", "Just can't take it", "I'll bring the whole world to your door" & "Wild & Hot" which even when I play now after having it for the last 30 years makes me want to jump around the room. HAPPY DAYS !!!!

From: hanovergermany Date: January 29, 2012 at 5:11
Angel:Sinful is one of the most underrated albums of the HardRockAOR genre. It's one of the rare albums you want to listen to from the beginning to the end. It's not so easy because I only have my original VINYL of 1979, so I have to turn it on the turntable inbetween. Many vinyl records I have bought another time on CD, but I haven't seen this one for a long time on this formate. The following live album didn't contain much of the material of "Sinful" because "real fans" prefer the older material. I "came" to ANGEL via "Winter Song" also on 7" Vinyl.
