Like Priest's Turbo, 'The Pack is Back' is a pathetic attempt at pop metal. I mean, "Gimme Some Lovin'" has scary resemblences to The Knacks My Sharona. YIKES! (I believe "Gimme Some Lovin'" is a Spencer Davis Group cover.) They even have synthesizer solos and use horns. This just should not be. It really is hard to believe this is the same powerful metal machine that gave us such classics as "Wiped Out" and "Rock Til You Drop." http://www.nolifetilmetal.com/raven.htm

a fun album , pure comical genious. It really is fun to listen to, and lets you know that there is a humorous side to the beast that we call RAVEN

After stripping away their uniqueness on Stay Hard, new "uniqueness" is brought in that nearly destroys the band and challenges its fan base. The growth here is cancerous, bad cover song choice, formulaic song structures, cartoonish imagery, and more horns than should even be associated with a metal band. That said, GET INTO YOUR CAR, NIGHTMARE RIDE and YOUNGBLOOD have aged well. Every lasting band has at least one misstep--here a veteran band tried a new sound that didn't logically fit.

Simply a travesty!!! Atlantic Records ruined this band. Had they continued in the direction they had with All For One they would have ruled the metal world. Instead the big label execs, who obviously have no clue, decided to ruin everything that made Raven sound like Raven. Horns? Synth guitars? A travesty indeed!!!
