  I don't think I'll ever get tired of hearing "SEE YOU IN HELL, MY FRIEND!"

Rating: 7 A bit overrated IMO, I cannot see how this is 8-9. Some good vocals, catchy parts, too much repetitiveness, no real hit or killer songs. Easy to listen, easy to like, but hard to find this as outstanding or classic.

Rating: 7 I don't think Grim Reaper were ever that important to the growing NWOBHM scene in the 80s, but for what it is, this debut effort is pretty decent. However, it's not really a classic, and there aren't any particularly outstanding tracks save for the aggressive-than-most closer "All Hell Let Loose". I feel that the band lose their musical power in the mid-section of the album somewhat ("Liar" through "Now or Never"), but generally this is a solid effort.
