2 stars This really was a let down (and to be honest the bands only real stinker of an album) even though...ironically...their only number 1 'hit' was featured in this release (goes to show you that just because its in the 'charts' does not make it the best) I mean im not really talking about production wise or the fact that they ran out of ideas, there is still quite a lot of experimentation on this album the final song MOTHER RUSSIA being one such example another being HOLY SMOKE with its...Quo? like riffs, the experimentation is just lazy on here i think, but for a second lets focus on the positives, there is a couple of saving graces on here, the opener TAILGUNNER being one with its cool intro and soaring chorus and the title track is also quite cool, apart from that all we have here is a quite bland and boring album, too bad...thankfully they do get better :)

Tailgunner - 9/10 Holy Smoke - 6/10 No Prayer For The Dying - 9/10 Public Enema Number One - 7/10 Fates Warning - 5/10 The Assassin - 6/10 Run Silent Run Deep - 5/10 Hooks In You - 6/10 Bring Your Daughter... To The Slaughter - 4/10 Mother Russia - 6/10

CONCLUSION: This album just didn't do it for me, thankfully they get better from here on out...
