Christmas of 87, I received a walkman, Bon Jovi's "Slippery When Wet", and this album on cassette… about 20 years later I began working in the music business. COINCIDENCE???

Well, people should know at least one thing by now - when it comes to pop, few do it better than the Swedes, and this album is a great example. This is almost the prototypical metal "boy band" - very pretty boys, very catchy songs, and very inoffensive overall. Still, there are many far worse things that were born out of the 80's "glam" era, like Trixter, Slaughter, Winger, et al. Give me this record any day over those "glam ballad" bands. At least these guys knew how to have some fun.

So very 80s rock revival. My copy has embossed sleeve and poster included.

bought this looking for the cheesiest 80's "metal" i could find at my record store. I think I succeeded ...

It's not because they're Swedish (or whatever), it's not because they're heavy metal, it's not because they're using a keyboard - it's because they're NOT.

Some of the worst quasi-metal stuff ever released. It is truly a miracle that even the title song itself survives for these guys to cash in on it every time a new TV-compilation CD appears for sale...
