"This album was my first introduction to Hanoi Rocks, and I had never heard of the band before, as I was only about 5 when Razzle was killed and they disbanded. It started about 2 years ago when I was looking for something to buy at a used CD store, and the cover caught my eye. Being a fan of the 80s hair bands I was drawn to the cover because it showed the band looking all tattooed and scruffy, with their big hair. It was only like $4.99 used so I figured what the hey, and I bought it, not really expecting that much. This album is now one of my favorite CDs of all time, and I own almost 500. Every song is great, not a dull moment. These guys just have great style, and the music just flows so smoothly, every song is incredibly catchy, and the lyrics are so much fun. Monroe is a great saxophone player, as he belts out awesome solos throughout. Soundwise, these guys are a direct cross between the 70s punk scene, and the 80s hairbands. But believe me, they are 10 times better than any 70s punk bands or 80s hairbands, except for maybe GnR, who they influenced a great deal. You can tell that Slash and Izzy must have listened to these guys a lot as you can hear shades of 'Appetite for Destruction' in the guitar playing. The highlights of the album include 'Motorvatin', 'Teenangels outsiders', 'Visitor', 'Dont follow me', 'Devil Woman', 'lightning bar blues', 'Oriental beat', and 'fallen star'. Thats almost every song, the songs I didnt mention are also very good, but these songs are unreal. 'Fallen Star' is a great ballad to close out the album, you can really feel the emotion in monroe's voice. Anyway, this is a perfect place to start if you want to get into Hanoi Rocks. If you are a fan of rock, punk, metal, or any kind of music, I don't see how you wouldnt love this album. Id give it 10 stars if I could."
Great Album...where are the drums?

"Love the LP, did not like the production. THe original tapes are nowhere to be found from what i have been told. As a result it can be remastered but not remixed properly. The songs that appear on the boxset from this LP are far superior...just check out Devil Woman..i did not like this version but the boxset is amazing. 1. Motorvatin' - the live version is better. Sebastian Bach covers this as well.
2. Don't Follow Me - ok
3. Visitor - great tune...left in lunacy!
4. Teenangels Outsiders - ok
5. Sweet Home Suburbia - ok
6. M.C. Baby - great rocking tune.
7. No Law Or Order - not for me..but good.
8. Oriental Beat - fast, upbeat
9. Devil Woman - awesome, just not this version.
10. Lightnin' Bar Blues - very casual..its a Hoyt Axton cover.
11. Fallen Star - nice vocals from Michael - Sebastian Bach also covered this song.

Go get it...this was the 2nd studio LP..but the guy who produced it...did not like drums????"
