Their very best!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Don't let the goofy cover fool you. This is definitely Hallow's Eve's best album, and one of the best I've ever heard. Their succesors were very good but they fall on more common metal grounds. The wide variety of the songs, altough the CD barely hits the half hour, it's incredible. You can play this album over and over and never get bored by it. Crunching songs like the opening 'Plunging to Megadeath' with a growling Stacy Anderson, who then, at the middle of the song, transforms his voice into an almost operatic style, the speed of 'The Outer Limits' showing again the vocal range of Anderson. Then comes two linked songs 'Horrorshow' and'The Mansion', incredible. The hyperfast 'There Are No Rules'. The short instrumental 'Valley Of The Dolls" serves as an intro to one of the best songs of the CD, 'Metal Merchants' you just won't be able to get it off your head. For the gran finale, the best song of the CD, the 8+ minute 'Hallow's Eve', you have to listen to believe it. So, in fewer words, BUY THIS!!! you won't regret it."
Strange 1980s artifact

"Hallow's Eve were a Hollywood Boulevard version of thrash metal--lots of flash and hair. Sort of the Guns 'n Roses of thrash. However, their lyrics were also slightly above par on the IQ meter. This rockin', surprisingly multifaceted album ranges from nuclear dread (the number-one concern of so many anxious punk and metal songs)anthems ("Plunging to Megadeath") to thrash mania ("Outer Limits") to silly Alice Cooper set pieces ("Hallow's Eve"). And that cover art--a portrait of an executioner that looks fresh off somebody's shop class notebook. Like so many albums that aren't great, its value lies in giving you a true flavor for the scene and its time.--J. Ruch"
