Krokus are not the most technical band, or the most innovative, but that was never really the point either. Somehow over the years, in order to escape the clichés associated with heavy metal, bands have gotten away from good time heavy metal. Early Krokus, fortunately is just fun. There are some really good tracks on this disc, including "Burning Bones", "Celebration" and "Mad Rocket". "Winning Man" is also an interesting power ballad in that it is very similar to one of Krokus' biggest hits, "Screaming in the Night" that came out several years later. Unfortunately, Krokus goes a bit beyond good time rock 'n roll and incorporates the most ridiculous of sexual innuendos at times. "Smelly Nelly" and "Mr. 69" should be good indication of what I mean. This is one trend in metal I am glad to see go away. A bit of nostalgia helps out a bit here. I can't help but relive my teen years hearing discs like this. Oh for the days of headbanging, bandanas, denim and leather...
