4 stars A good album for the metalhead, not for the progger. You better have an inclination for melodic metal or this one is going down the drain. The great songs are (in order of appearance): CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED; 22 ACACIA AVENUE; HALLOWED BE THY NAME. The rest is good stuff but not exceptional. Back in '82 almost everyone freaked out over the album - but now... the really great albums stand the test of time. I'm not sure this one has. It is a classic 3.5 stars album to me. Ok, let's make it 4 for historical significance.
