U.D.O easily wins the battle of '89 versus his old band. This might as well have been called an Accept album and it would have been closer to the truth than Eat The Heat. Excellent release that sees Udo re-inspired and kicking ass. Dirty Boys and Mean Machine are my fav tracks but it's all good. The U.D.O. catalog deserves to be listed on Heavy Harmonies.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as Animal House. It was bland & uninspiring. Clearly he needed his Accept cohorts to make the follow up to ANimal House & is shows... SIXXSWINE 11.25.04

sixxswine, have you heard his latest 5 CDs. They all slay and are easily as good as anything ACCEPT has done, and better than some of the stuff they did towards the end (ie. Predator). Thunderball, Man & Machine, Holy, No Limits and Solid are all outstanding! U.D.O. rules!

Dieth' was underrated big time.In addition to Udo's killer trademark vox,there is some really nice shredding from Mathias on here . --------

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 16, 2013 at 20:01
Better than his debut one i believe...tracks 1,2,4,5,6 & 8 really rock the house .86/100

From: hair metal again Date: March 12, 2019 at 2:28
first real solo release for U.D.O. and as expected an excellent one with Matthias shining with his shreding !anthemic songs,howling guitars and a great performance is offered here with highlights being the "painted love","don t look back","sweet little child" and "we re history"
