After the blood and guts approach of the debut album and tour this, the bands second album, captures some of the same elements but shows the band to have progressed somewhat with regards to image and songwriting. Blackie seems to have moved away from a modern day Alice Cooper/Gene Simmons look to have discovered a far more appropriate native american/soldier image. The mix of the album is also more polished but with aggresive songs like Ballcrusher and Widowmaker does not lack the intensity of the first album. Without a shadow of a doubt the highlight on this album is Wild Child - this songs sums up WASP, sums up Blackie Lawless and sums up us, the WASP Warriors who have been with the band through thick and thin for years.

The second album from WASP was a bit perplexing at first. The songs were there but there was a lot of "new" elements to the band (and I'm not just talking about adding Steve behind the drums). Blackie stretched out a little on this album and it's a much more mature album than the first.
The addition of A LOT of extra material is very welcome. I had most of this as various B-sides and whatnot but it's good to have it all collected in one place. There are some negatives here though. The packaging hasn't been given proper attention. The original back cover (the one used now is from the Wild child gatefold single) looks like a bad scan and one track is misnamed. (I forget which one but we get a great love rendition of Sleeping in the fire instead so I'm still pretty happy).

This album brought a much more polished feel to the band than their debut, whilst retaining most of the aggression and intensity. Also contains arguably the greatest ever W.A.S.P. single, Wild Child. This song alone makes this album worth buying, the other great tunes are a bonus.

I remember hearing this album in the late 80s, perplexed by the difference between the bands bad-boy image and the frankly limp sound of this album.

The mid-eighties was not a a good era for this or a good deal of other bands in their classification, as labels sought to commoditise the rock sound. This album is a case in point.
