"Banging my head to a metal attack"

"Animal House was the first album by Accept's vocalist Udo Dirkschneider's band UDO. If you are an Accept fan, you will probably enjoy this album. Why? Because Udo's mates from Accept wrote it plus it has the same blistering metal sound Accept was known for. With Dirkscheider's raw vocals, it sounds like an Accept album. All the songs are very catchy, too. My favorites includes "Black Widow" with the driving guitar, "They Want War" which includes a cool synthesizer piece in the middle, and the strikingly soothing "In the Darkness." The latter track is a ballad and Dirkschneider's voice is surprisingly nice on it. It is not an extremely beautiful and romantic voice, but a pleasant enough voice to do this excellent ballad justice. I did not know he had it in him. The album has the following 10 tracks: 1. Animal House, 2. Go Back to Hell, 3. They Want War, 4. Black Widow, 5. In the Darkness, 6. Lay Down the Law, 7. We Want It Loud, 8. Warrior, 9. Coming Home, and 10. Run For Cover. The album is very solid with no weak track in the bunch (in fact, it is more solid than some Accept albums). If you are an Accept fan who did not branch off into U.D.O., Animal House is a great way to start."
"Russian Roulette II"

"This album is logical sequel from very beginning of UDO's solo career. In fact, this got to be called Accept II or Russian Roulette II. UDO made a lot of good songs and if you pick any of his solo projects you will not definitely be disappointed.
He picked different musicians, including Rudy Graf and Peter Szigeti both from ex. Warlock (I still longing for this band) and wrapped them in Accept sound (completely bingo). This is a very good album, although it is not UDO's the best album. Classic tunes are Animal House, They Want War, Go Back To Hell, They Want Loud, Warrior etc, etc. Highly recommended for those who enjoy in classic heavy sound."
1987 at it's best

"As UDO's first solo album, this one is definitely the one to start a career off with. It has a fantastic group of extremely talented german musicians, and the songwriting is mostly done by Accept. I personally have never found any other of UDO's solo albums to reach a level of guitar playing quality, that is demostrated on this one. Peter Szigeti and Mattias Dieth were at their best on this - as demonstrated by some of incredible double tracking of the solos (in minor 5ths and thirds)all the while flawlessly shreading through elaborately picked scales and arpeggios. But, guitar virtuosity is usually not enough to completely sell me on a CD. This one has great songs, that are extremely well crafted and composed for that era of music, and the production captures the sound of that era in top form. If you like UDO, you really should own this album."
