"This is a real classic from these guys , and the guitars are thunderous only to be second to the drumming. If one has to buy only one RIOT album then this should be it. Go ahead and taste true metal."

"If you are in the mood to listen to good metal get this CD. I remember having this album on tape as a teen. What drew me to this album was the cover, never heard anything at all from this band. Boy, was I surprise. This is a CD that will grow on you. Favorite tracks. "Little Miss. Death.", "Runaway". Great vocals, great playing. Recapture your youth, go ahead and pick this album up."

"Love it! Deversity, everything in this album. Funky "Killer" with brass, Prog with "Little Miss Death & MaryAnne" and SPEED "Dance of Death & Storming the Gates of Hell". One of my favorites, even over Thundersteel. Vocals are high, not ear piercing and not much range, Tony Moore. Fast guitars on some songs, catchy tunes."
Great Power Metal Album

""The Privilege of Power", 1990 second album with Tony Moore on lead vocal, Don Vanstavern bass, Bobby Jarzombek drums and, of course, Mark Reale on guitars. This one continues the fast & furious thunderous of ThunderSteel, with an excellent guitar work. One of my favorites is "Dance of Death" which starts with a folk indu kind of music and then change into a pure power metal. "On your Knees", "Storming The gates of Hell" and "Black leather" are fast tempo one. There is no filler on this one. I recommend this one for any power metal fan along with ThunderSteel."
