One of the best NWOBHM albums. Maybe a little bit softer, but really melodic, enjoyable and amazing.

I actually bought this out of nowhere yesterday... I've seen that on the shelves at HMV.
And I saw the tag mentioning NWOBHM, I was like *hmm don't know this band, let's try it out*
I'm listening to it right now, not disappointing at all, I love it so far, but I'll make it spin
a few more times before I rate it. No matter, I'm really glad I found this.

EDIT: Well so I have listened to it a lot since and I think this is an excellent album. I love it!
- I love my technical, melodic, my thrash, agressive and fast paced, my sludge, well thought, my heavy, heavier and my metal, ever-growing -

New wave of British heavy rock. Not bad, but too cheesy for me.

I've changed my mind, it is a nice album. Guess I wasn't in a mood for that amount of catchiness.

Exceptionally good NWoBHM. This is actually the only PM album I regard as really good. Lots of good songs here, but IMO "Running For Tomorrow" is the only real classic here.
