To call W.A.S.P. hair metal would be to lump them in with a lot of mindless rock coming out of L.A. in the 80's, that is why I do not call W.A.S.P. hair metal.

Throughout this album there is a great mixture of fun, sleazy party-hard songs such as "Blind in Texas" and "Sex Drive," great fist pumping chant-along anthems such as "The Last Command" and "Running Wild in the Streets," a ballad like "Cries in the night," and even something that very few so called "hair metal" bands could achieve: an epic, which is the track "Widowmaker." It shows such a great combination of straightforward rock n roll with deeper more grandiose songs which is why I think this album is the pinnacle for Blackie & the boys.

Rating: 7 This is a really good album. Even if it doesnt contain the volume of truly classic tracks that the debut had, or was a true monster like "The Headless Children"... lol

The Headless Children is overated and ''classic'' seems this bands albums and songs are so good that all is classic and same times there feels like there is no classic ...
I wish quality be better, IMO WASP need re record WASP and this one for new whit better sound engenering
