5.0 out of 5 stars Get this album!,
This album was a pleasant surprise! The writing is incredible and the playing is a surprise! The cover of Eleanor Rigby is great (Dee Snider singing the Beatles and a slower song to boot). Great musicianship and great songs not what you would expect from an ex twisted sister rocker!If you like instrumentals and good old fashion rockers then check this out!
5.0 out of 5 stars Burning Axes,
If you think a CD has to get heavy rotation on MTV to be good, listen to this one for a change, and you might learn how wrong you are. If you’re interested in it because there’s a version of Eleanor Rigby. Not only Dee Snider doesn’t quite sound like Lennon or McCarney, but he’s definitely done better jobs elsewhere.
There are eleven solid songs on this album, they’re well arranged and recorded. This is old school melodic hard rock, the kind the best of them made out there in the early eighties, and that’s reason enough why you ought to put this CD under arrest in the first place. The axes burn on most tracks as on the cover, and they sure smoke from beginning to end. So if you are a part of the Twisted Sister fan base you already own this gem. If you don’t, go get it!
5.0 out of 5 stars Eddie shows his chops !
This is a very good, straight ahead hard rock CD. Eddie clearly has a lot more ability than he was able to show in TS. This is a very good effort in a time when good hard rock is difficult to find.
