Review

I have seen this rarity only 2 times in mail order lists in the last 15 years and from the descriptions (e.g. a seller stated that they play like young Metallica)
I was sure that this was 100% a metal band. However, the music is more hard rock than metal and contains many ballad-like parts that are not bad but they are far from metal. ''Come out to play'' and ''The sea'' are to my ears the best songs here and if you consider that these musicians from Indiana were not above sixteen when they released this LP we can't be so strict with this nice effort. They released the record in tiny quantity at a local studio and that was the reason it was always considered as much sought after and expensive (just imagine I have seen it sold at a higher price than METAL MERCHANT or FULL TILT in the same salelist!). To conclude, this LP is not essential but a nice addition to serious collections.
