Man, this RAVEN page is seriously lacking. The band's best albums aren't even listed. Check out: http://www.nolifetilmetal.com/raven.htm As for STAY HARD, not a bad CD, but certainly not their best. "Stay Hard" was Raven's major label (Atlantic) debut and they were under pressure to come up with something less hyper and more commercial than their past albums. "Hard Ride" is a re-recorded version of the song off the band's landmark debut complete with new blazing solos. Good but not their best.

This is a prime major label mistake. Sign a unique band, and remove most of its uniqueness so that it fits in with the times. This is still a solid album, with a couple of stretches that show the band growing. The ballad, PRAY FOR THE SUN, was Sabbath-creepy, unlike many lighter-flickers of the time. BOTTOM LINE is a great instrumental that introduced horns to their all-out approach. The rest are solid mid-tempo songs that resemble a then-modern Judas Priest, UFO, or Thin Lizzy.

Tantas bandas por comentar tantos clasicos miles y miles creo que la vida de humano jamas alcanzara para llegar a conocer todo el Rock en su extension casi infinita a la mierda mala suerte por uds mortales que se quedaran con las ganas y en este mundo no hay ni existira jamas la persona que pueda decir que lo sabe todo pobres mortales ese es su gran problema que el tiempo nunca les alcanzara pero los inmortales como el Fenix el tiempo es lo que le sobra, sobre Raven que puedo decir CLASICOS!!!.

En una onda mas comercial sin deajar la dureza, Raven nos entrego este album lleno de buenas canciones.Un album orientado mas al mercado Americano que al Europeo al igual que "The Pack".Si quieres lo mas comercial de Raven,este junto con "The Pack" te haran feliz.10/10
