|This is a great cd. There's alot more melody here than on their 2 previous cd's. I still prefer the first cd best, but this is a close 2nd.

|"Rise" is better than "Ignite," but only by a hair. Fans of late 80s-style hard rock will enjoy this latest offering from HAIR OF THE DOG, which can be described as a cross between Dokken & Helix. The guitars are aggressive, the riffs pack a punch, the vocals suit the songs, and overall, everything just sounds pretty good, if not exactly mind-blowing. Some bands sound like whimpering wiener-dogs, but this one actually has some bite to it.

|Yeah Reno, This album is pretty good, but their first is their best. The first one is more along the lines of Jackyl. This album is more pop sounding.

|I agree. The first was and always will be their best because of it's raw attitude. This one is alot more polished then either of the first 2. Rise had some good tunes, but seemed like it had no direction. I rate the first as best followed by Ignite.

|'Devil May Care' may be the best song that Ryan has written, but there's something about the rest of the record that doesn't work for me. The songs did sound good live however. The album is just lacking that crunch of the first two albums.

|Got this recently and IT ROCKS!! I really like HOTD they have a sound that is quite refreshing to these ears

|Too bad that they're gone already. I had the pleasure of seeing them 3 times before their demise. They totally rocked the house and after the show, they stuck around and chattered with everyone and signed everything that needed signing. Awesome bunch of guys!

|Get their self titled if you can find it. More rock and less polish!

|Thanks for the tip T-Bone. I already have the other 2, shame they are no more.

|I didn't like this one as much as either of the other two discs. It doesn't have the punch of the debut, and the melodies aren't as strong as those on Rise. Of course, the song with Lemmy kicks ass, and "Between Darkness and Light" has a heavy crunch. The slow, bluesy swagger of "Grit" and the moody semi-ballad "Shine" are good as well, but my favorite would be the immediately catchy and melodic "Devil May Care." Elsewhere, though, songs like "One More For Saturday Night," "Hellride' and the title track just sound like they're trying too hard for big, arena anthems that just don't have the powerhouse riffs or choruses. And "Over You, Under Me" is just stupid.
