Released in 1979, 'Accept' was the German metal legends' first outing, although it captures them in their formative stages as they were still feeling their way towards the taut, razor sharp sound they would perfect on later albums such as 'Restless And Wild' & 'Balls To The Wall'.
The production is typically '70s', perhaps lacking the sharp dynamics that bands such as Judas Priest were utilizing, the end product sounding somewhat sludgy, although this in no way detracts from Accept's heavy, melodic brand of metal with twin lead guitars and Udo's legendary shriek to the fore.
As I mentioned earlier, the band were still finding their way, with a number of tracks being more akin to melodic hard rock than to metal, as Accept's signature style begins to emerge out of the murky, bass-heavy sound that was probably more to do with the record company than the band.
As you might expect, most of the material has the turbo-charged twin guitar attack and pounding rhythm section that is the cornerstone of old-skool metal, as screaming vocals and anthemic choruses reign supreme, although it was early days, and Accept had yet to refine their unhinged approach and pare it down to the metallic bone as they would in coming years.
It might seem tentative in comparison with their later albums, but has a teutonic charm all of it's own, and while it might have 'Germanic cheese metal' written all over it, the band's ability to churn out infectious, albeit generic, metal anthems cannot be denied.
It was, after all, just a beginning, but one that showed a lot of promise which would eventually be fulfilled in the coming decade.
Not as sharp as Priest, nor as volcanic as Motorhead, but nevertheless tons of fun. Try it.

3 and a 1/2 stars 23 Mar 2006
By triplethreatx - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Very good first LP. Instant classics like "That's Rock'n'roll", "sounds of war" and "tired of me". Wouldn't pay more than $13 bucks for it, but any Accept fan should own this. Pass over their 2nd and buy this.

Accepts Debut 4 Feb 2009
By ChivesArchives - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The debut of german rockers Accept.This first offering finds the band sounding very much like their fellow countrymen Scorpions's early recordings.Much more melodic than what was coming down the road.Think early Deep Purple/Scorpions as what to expect....Standout cuts are Tired Of Me & Streetfighter. 3 stars

Classic Metal 19 Nov 2009

Early effort from Accept. A must if you are a fan. Raw and not as polished as later efforts but worth getting.

ACCEPT'S FIRST ALBUM 1 Sep 2013
By Ben30 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a big fan of ACCEPT and have been for over 10 years
Accept's first album which is self titled, released in Europe 1979
it's still a Good album, Accept were finding themselves in terms of style
so the production on this album is very amateur, meaning ACCEPT did not have much money at the time
to spend on a big production album like their later albums and
you can definitely tell that in the sound quality of each track
this album is more a Hardrock album than Heavy metal album and there is a big Difference between both syles
most of the tracks are influenced by AC/DC, SCORPIONS etc
like Lady Lou tired of me, Helldriver street fighter all influenced by AC/DC and SCORPIONS
except 2 tracks that do sound heavier and faster, FREE ME NOW and THAT'S ROCK 'N' ROLL
Definitley pre-speedmetal but the production is raw

as far as i know there's only 2 versions of this CD, there's the Japan release
and then there's this European CD release by SPV released in 2005
which has been Digitally remastered with all new Liner notes by UDO the Lead singer of early ACCEPT
if your a big fan of ACCEPT and AC/DC than learn about their early works with this album
definitely get this ACCEPT CD by SPV.
it's not my favourite ACCEPT CD but i still enjoy listening to some tracks from this CD after all these years
amazon don't have this album for sample listening but maybe someone has uploaded the album on you tube
and you can check the tracks that way
But if your not sure and just like some tracks of ACCEPT, then get the Greatest Hits compilation
Don't waste your money on this CD, this CD is suitable for Loyal fans only.
but it's up to you, if you want to take the risk then go ahead and buy it.
Got my back to the wall... 28 Nov 2010

A heavy metal band from Germany, Accept made their debut as metal was about to enter into possibly its greatest and most influential era - a five year period covering the years 1978 to 1983 or so. The NWOBHM was bursting out of Britain and the continent would not be immune to this sea change in the deft use of power chords. In this period, Accept's debut contains some of the best of what the genre had to offer at this point - a shrieking front man in Udo Dirkschneider and a talented frets man in Wolf Hoffmann. Much of Accept's early sound indubitably owes more than a passing nod to fellow countryman Scorpions who had been plugging their trade for most of the decade before Accept committed themselves to wax. "Lady Lou", "Tired of Me" and "Sounds of War" capture the true spirit of the power metal madness that was to come while mid-tempo or milder tracks "Take Him in My Heart" and "Glad to Be Alone" showed some diversity of sound. Bassists Peter Baltes made vocal contributions on several of the early Accept records and while he usually sings the slower stuff he does scream along with Udo in "Sounds". Overall I am impressed with this early effort from one of metal's unsung bands from the glory years of the early to mid `80's before commercial rock radio stifled the creativity of many heavy bands - Accept included.
