Review

Somehow, Udo has managed to release eleven frigging albums since leaving Accept long, long ago. Despite continuing to release solid, reliable albums for such a long time, he and his band have always had a B-level career, and probably always will. After all, U.D.O. albums are all pretty much the same: Solid riffing, stomping choruses, and Udo's distinctive but unexciting gargle. As a singer, Udo is neither here nor there. He gets the job done, and that's about it. I'd pick out favorites, but really this album is made up of songs that are only slightly differentiated from each other - they're all pretty good. The riffs are heavy, the leads are good, and overall this is a fun album. If metal has a middle of the road, this is it. If you like U.D.O. then you should get this, but then again, if you have heard any of their other albums, then you already heard this.
