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 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 on an album that, while not overly innovative, is packed with catchy riffs, 'Seawinds' (their first great ballad with bassist Peter Baltes on vocals), dual guitar leads aplenty and a whole heap of youthful energy, similar to early Scorpions before they found their range.
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.
Not as sharp as Priest, nor as volcanic as Motorhead, but nevertheless tons of fun. Try it.

4.0 out of 5 stars What can you say about Accept, they Rock! 24 Sept. 2012
By Mark A. Dillard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Even with this freshman debut you hear where Accept is headed with their music. With this first outting the music is somewhat tame compared to what would come after it but serves as the base from which they grew from.
It's not early 'Balls To The Wall' but early Accept getting their bearings and a strong foothold as to who they are.
It follows more in line with 'Breaker' and 'I'm A Rebel' but not quite as hard as those later releases.
If you are any kind of Accept fan and only knowing the later material like 'Metal Heart' or 'Balls To The Wall' you really should be looking into the early stuff from their debut along with 'Breaker', 'Rebel' and 'Restless & Wild'. All serve up a stepping stone as Accept get closer to their harder edged Metal sound.

Some may argue but I would put their debut more in the Rock category then Metal, to me the true Metal years for Accept came later.
The early albums have that raw almost primitive recording sound to them but everything comes through nice and clear.
If you only own 'Metal Heart' and or 'Balls To The Wall' you really owe yourself a trip to the past and get the early albums to hear how their sound developed over years. Otherwise you'll be missing out on some great tunes like 'Lady Lou' and 'Son Of A Bitch' unaltered version. Even Wolf's early riffs and leads will still amaze you, he was great even in the early years. Udo of course always served up the gruffy vocals you have come to love!
It took me awhile to get their debut album on CD but its crucial to any true Accept fans collection.
You won't regret getting a copy. The early albums to me are fun and the music is more raw in form.
If you want an idea reminds me of Raven's 'Rock Until You Drop' and 'Wiped Out'.

Cheers!
Mark

4.0 out of 5 stars Got my back to the wall... 28 Nov. 2010
By Mark H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars I love it 25 Jun. 2014

I love Accept, they have a very original style of heavy metal. This is their debut album and I like it as much as restless and wild and balls to the wall. My favorite songs are "tired of me", "seawinds" and "free me now". I recommend this album. It has good guitars, battery, a nice ballad and some classic heavy metal songs.
5.0 out of 5 stars Accept Accept. The original speed metal band! 15 July 2015
By Sam-Wise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Accept was the first speed metal band, and they had a sound like no other out there. German born, and bred, and barely made the airwaves in the U.S. Too bad, because they truly had an outstanding sound!
