Ronnie Montrose trademarks abound on this album - his willingness to do covers (in this case one of the Stones lesser-known songs "Connection"); instrumentals - "Starliner" was to be first of many and has an unforgettable hook ; heavy slide guitar in the title track ; and his inclusion of slower and acoustic material. He provides the vocal on "We're going home", which has a killer guitar solo, and which no doubt probably upset Sammy Hagar not a little!
"I got the Fire" is as good as anything on the first album, and is similar to a Hendrix riff but metallised. This should have been the album opener which instead was the over-produced "Underground", melodic enough but maybe the weakest song on the CD. "Dreamer" has a very heavy riff, and "Spaceage sacrifice" is a nod to Ronnies interest in sci-fi, and is a strong mid-tempo number.
Bass (provided by newcomer Alan Fitzgerald) and drums are much more to the fore here, with Denny Carmassi turning in perhaps his finest ever performance on record. Hagar provided another excellent set of vocals on this album, but disagreements with Ronnie Montrose led to a parting of the ways, and a decline in both parties output. Montrose's next 2 albums and the first few Hagar releases were pretty naff affairs.
In summary :not as good as "Montrose", a touch over-produced, less in-your-face guitar, perhaps a song short of being a classic, but I wish someone was making albums as good as this today !
U.K. Distributor Rock candy is the company to give fans this new remaster
Paper money is not as Good as their self titled album but comes pretty damn close nethertheless
probably only 6 tracks are excellent Hard rockin' tracks,
I Got the fire, space station no.5 are major Highlights, paper money and the Dreamer are really Good aswell
tracks like Underground and connection are soft rock covers only
and the last Montrose album to have Sammy Hagar on vocals
Rock candy has newly remastered all 8 tracks with new 2015 audio technology
which does sound really Good probably the best the album has ever sounded actually
the previous cd versions by Warner bros released years ago sounded flat and not much boost in the sound quality
with any Rock candy reissue there's also a 12 page full colour booklet with 3,500 work essay about the making of the album
with new interviews with Sammy Hagar and others that were involved in making the album
very interesting read for sure
tragically there are no bonus tracks but you get new cover art, new Picture Disc & new 12 page booklet
that's way more effort than what warner bros did for paper money
about 3 stars for the album itself, 5 stars for this new rock candy reissue
Definitley worth upgrading

Great disc from a great band received It in good time and conditionPublished 16 months ago by bravo2 zero
Playing wise Montrose still cut it on this, their second album. Sadly the material's just not there to back it up. It does suffer in comparison to their classic debut. Read morePublished on 18 Jan. 2005 by Tyrion
