NWOBHM has to be one of the most depressing genres when it comes to looking at metal in a modern light. It's just overflowing with aged bands that really should retire, but still just won't stop putting out shit albums with naught but one member of the original line-up left. Both Tokyo Blade & Tygers Of Pan Tang still exist in some form or another. While this isn't as bad some should-be retirees (hell, how bad can it be with Bill Steer in your line up?), it's still not all that good.

Damn, I heard it and to use an understatement, I am not too positive about it.

I was struggling whether to decide to give this album a 7 or an 8 to be honest. The songs themselves are pretty well structured, but when the vocals come into play it sounds a bit irritating. I mean, his vocals are considerably weaker than on the band's earlier records, and they really don't fit in with the guitar work or the other instruments for that matter. That said, the music here seems to be a tad more complex than on past albums, given that not one song falls under the 5-minute mark. A lot of people say that this is a huge disappointment, but that's what happens when you expect too much of a band that released a brilliant album in the 80's and then shied away from the music scene almost immediately...

I remember downloading this, listening to it, and then forgetting about it...

Perhaps I should give it another listen...
