REVIEWS

******
#31 in BILLBOARD (1984)
****
Nee! Das erste Album nach von Rohrs Weggang - und genau das hört man dem Songmaterial auch an... War "Headhunter" noch hungrig und böse, ist bei "The blitz" bereits schon erkennbar, was auf "Change of address" Realität wurde; man begab sich langsam aber sicher ins Gagaland!! Einzig "Ready to rock" und vielleicht noch "Midnight maniac" können überzeugen!
***
Ich war sehr entäuscht vom HEADHUNTER Nachfolger.
******
klar, es kommt nicht an "metal rendez-vous" ran, aber welches album macht das schon? jetzt seit doch mal nicht so ueberprofessionell! fuer mich das 2.beste album von krokus. die riffs sind geil, auch wenn das ganze nicht mehr so roh ist.
ich meine "our love": das ist was vom besten, auch wenn der fernando mittlerweile blonde haare hat und der chris keine schaedel mehr aufs cover setzen konnte!
****
Knappe Vier und zugleich der Niedergang einer der geilsten schweizer Bands. Nach vier richtig geilen Alben (1980-1983) ist dies hier die erste richtige Enttäuschung. #31 in den USA und #55 in D.
****
Hat an Biss verloren, dennoch ein gutes Werk.
******
Den find ich auch heute noch ganz toll.
****
Dito Trille, pillermaik und andere, wird von vielen Fans als
"Sellout" Album angesehen, und das sicher nicht ganz zu
Unrecht.....von Kopf bis Fuss auf den U.S. Markt getrimmt
und das hiess zumindest in den 80ern in der Regel nichts
Gutes!
