Customer Review

on 19 February 2007
This album has earned its legendary status on the backs of 2 unusually good tracks. These are the riff-tastic last track, Princess of the Dawn, and the opening shredder, Fast as a Shark.

In between, though it hurts a bit to say it, the songs probably sound a little dated these days, even though only 2 are disappointing musically.

The bread and butter of the album is good, solid, melodic, but hard-edged 80s Heavy Metal. Structurally the songs are fairly simple, with verse and chorus distinctly seperate. Udo, God love him, sings a bit like an angry Mini-Me would - and although perhaps a bit of an acquired taste, adds a unique character to the Accept sound. The other part of the Accept sound - the guitars - have rarely sounded more natural - raw and seemingly untouched by the producer. It is almost as though each string was recorded individually.

For my money this, as a whole, is a great album, but to truly love it, you possibly had to grow up with it.
