Review

That's another local pressing (with thick cardboard sleeve) that surely was spread mainly in the Boston/Massachussets area. As far as I know there must be 2 versions available, one like mine with the blue colour and another one with any colour replacing the blue one. I could easily imagine it's a very wanted piece due to the vocal appearance of Gary Cherone who later got some fame with EXTREME. But seriously, if you're not into Rock/Hard Rock then you shouldn't spend any money on it. The B-side hides some heavier songs like "Say goodbye" or "The mask" but while saying "heavy" I'm just confusing you. It's just "heavier" than the A-side stuff which is just heavier Rock, while the opener has a disgusting funky feel just like EXTREME had later, though Gary's vocals are fantastic sounding and totally fit to their softer Hard Rock sound. Here and there there's a heavier guitar part tearing the silence but all in all heavier Rock would fit the best as description, even though I don't think it's crap at all. It's well composed and well worked out and some of these songs are even little hits but for the ears of a Heavy Metal maniac it's simply Rock music! Remember this when you behold a copy which won't happen too often and the price will keep you hopefully away from doing any mad shit (like I did)!
