This release stands the test of time perfectly! I bought this on LP when it came out in 1980, and actually saw this tour live in NY and NJ. It was incredible! I believe it was Molly Hatchet, MSG, and Kiss, and without question, MSG blew the other bands out of the water! I am 40 years old, and a hard rock/metal afficionado since I was in high school (one of my fave genres). After hearing hard rock, blues hard rock, progressive hard rock, death hard rock, grunge, nu-metal, (fill in the blank), I always go back to this release because it is, quite possibly, one of the BEST hard rock/metal release EVER! The songs are well structured, the drumming is clockwork and powerful, as is the heartfelt, megastrong vocals of Gary Barden, and the ungodly talented axework from the master himself, Mister/Master Michael Schenker. This is one of those CD’s that send chills up my spine when I hear what Michael is doing on the guitar! His ability to sustain melodic intensity in both rhythm and lead playing WITH a hard, bluesy meets metal approach is indicative of a true master on guitar! It is high time the Limp Bizkits of the world truly learn how to play artistic, connecting, emotive hard rock… the way it should be done like the Schenkers, Lifesons, Iommis, Pages, Tiptons, Jon Roths, Jabs, Murrays, Hammetts, Takasakis, Malmsteens, Buck Dharma Roesers, and Blackmores of the world (to name a few of the absolute best)!
