They had their sound well figured out. those so called big albums just turned them into goddamn cheesy radio-play-act

only thing lacking is the production. same goes for fahrenheit. NJ & SWW were all cheese soundwise.

How do you know it wasn't the other way around? The logical thing is they were really young and they could do nothing but evolve.

Not bat at all. I like to hear it sometimes, but doesn't hear it as much as some other albums though.

Cheesiness came with producer. I'm not sure if "they" evolved or not.

The album is simply fantastic. Too bad that it doesn't get much attention on the setlists

Some very nice guitar work, pretty good songs: Runaway, Roulette, Shot Thru The Heart and Come Back being the best. Bit of a problem in the production, and very very limited in scope... pretty much a by the numbers, straight ahead rock album. I like it, but I would say that it competes with Crush for worst studio album. But then, its when they were just getting established, so thats perfectly acceptable

Keep On Rockin'
