A (nwobh-)metal classic. Every metalhead should have this in his collection. When it came out on vinyl i thought it was a piece of crap, but nowadays i like it a lot. It's all about loud guitars and screaming vocals. You can't stop banging your head on "All for one","break the chain" and "seek & destroy". 8/10

A rough sounding Re-release from Raven.It's very early sounding 80's metal,kinda sloppy but fun...7/10.

AWESOME! That is the best word to describe this album. Every song is as good as the next. Most Raven fans seem to agree that this is a favorite. Nobody did it like Raven in 83! Nobody was this intense, aggressive, or outrageous! Raven were thrash before thrash existed. The Break the Chain EP is also excellent. The new version of Inquisitor with Udo & John sharing vocals is awesome! Likewise, the Udo/Raven version of Born to be Wild is the craziest & heaviest cover of this song I have ever heard.

Arguments could be made about ALL FOR ONE being Raven at its peak. The production is tight, the songs are solid, and the performances are incredible. The energy is amazing! Unfortunately, as a band in a position to move on to better things, this album led Raven to Atlantic which proved disastrous to band and audience. A last hint, this record was strong enough for the band to headline a US tour with KILL'EM ALL era Metallica as their opening act. Buy, listen, learn... this is the real stuff!

"Nobody did it like Raven in '83" ???? Nobody except maybe Accept,Dio,Maiden,Priest,Krokus,Saxon,Dokken etc All these bands and more did it far better than Raven in '83.However,"All For One" was always a great metal album none the less thanks heavily to a small camoflauge man named Udo

I own this album on vinyl as well as on CD(with the bonus tracks)...classic band that has remained "second rate" one shamely...tracks 1,2,4,5,6,9& 10 from the album itself are my faves..."The Ballad Of Marshall Stack" & "Inquisitor" from the bonus tracks...85/100
