4.0 out of 5 stars "Banging my head to a metal attack" March 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Animal House was the first album by Accept's vocalist Udo Dirkschneider's band UDO. If you are an Accept fan, you will probably enjoy this album. Why? Because Udo's mates from Accept wrote it plus it has the same blistering metal sound Accept was known for. With Dirkscheider's raw vocals, it sounds like an Accept album. All the songs are very catchy, too. My favorites includes "Black Widow" with the driving guitar, "They Want War" which includes a cool synthesizer piece in the middle, and the strikingly soothing "In the Darkness." The latter track is a ballad and Dirkschneider's voice is surprisingly nice on it. It is not an extremely beautiful and romantic voice, but a pleasant enough voice to do this excellent ballad justice. I did not know he had it in him. The album has the following 10 tracks: 1. Animal House, 2. Go Back to Hell, 3. They Want War, 4. Black Widow, 5. In the Darkness, 6. Lay Down the Law, 7. We Want It Loud, 8. Warrior, 9. Coming Home, and 10. Run For Cover. The album is very solid with no weak track in the bunch (in fact, it is more solid than some Accept albums). If you are an Accept fan who did not branch off into U.D.O., Animal House is a great way to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1987 at it's best November 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As UDO's first solo album, this one is definitely the one to start a career off with. It has a fantastic group of extremely talented german musicians, and the songwriting is mostly done by Accept. I personally have never found any other of UDO's solo albums to reach a level of guitar playing quality, that is demostrated on this one. Peter Szigeti and Mattias Dieth were at their best on this - as demonstrated by some of incredible double tracking of the solos (in minor 5ths and thirds)all the while flawlessly shreading through elaborately picked scales and arpeggios. But, guitar virtuosity is usually not enough to completely sell me on a CD. This one has great songs, that are extremely well crafted and composed for that era of music, and the production captures the sound of that era in top form. If you like UDO, you really should own this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-balanced, well-produced hard rock. May 8, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Hats off to Amazon for being the first online music store I've found that carries Udo. The former Accept frontman definatley landed on his feet with this release. I had this on cassette before CD's even got popular. From the hard hitting title track to the more melodic sounds of 'They want war' this is a very solid record. Unfortunealty for Udo it came out at a time when no one had really heard of Accept and mainstream poser rock was dominating the market. As a result, none of his solo albums ever went anywhere. Animal house is not the kind of album where just one or two songs is good. The whole disc rocks, and I recommend it to any non-glam rockers out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Russian Roulette II" June 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is logical sequel from very beginning of UDO's solo career. In fact, this got to be called Accept II or Russian Roulette II. UDO made a lot of good songs and if you pick any of his solo projects you will not definitely be disappointed.

He picked different musicians, including Rudy Graf and Peter Szigeti both from ex. Warlock (I still longing for this band) and wrapped them in Accept sound (completely bingo). This is a very good album, although it is not UDO's the best album. Classic tunes are Animal House, They Want War, Go Back To Hell, They Want Loud, Warrior etc, etc. Highly recommended for those who enjoy in classic heavy sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Animal House Accepted! April 25, 2013
By Gthrash
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Udo Dirkschneider's 1st solo album after leaving Accept. If you are a fan of classic Accept albums from the 80's, then this album is for you. Just straight forward metal with plenty of fist in the air anthems

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Intro to U.D.O. for Accept Fans September 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was the Accept album that wasn't. When Udo parted ways with Accept for the first time, they were kind enough to send him off with all the songs that had been written for their next record before they decided to change directions and opt for something more "commerical."

What this means for a listener is that, if you're into Accept, but know nothing of Udo's solo work, this is going to be your best starting point. Nothing here would have been out of place on any album by Accept, though Udo hasn't deviated too much from that classic metal sound over the years anyway.

Speaking to the reissue, I have never heard the prior issues of this album, so I don't know how the audio stacks up. Standing on its own, it seems to have a reasonable amount of dynamic range and doesn't betray any brickwalling to my ears, so sensitive hands must have been guiding the board if it was remastered. Unfortunately, there's nothing enticing about the bonus material, so unless you must have all variants of these releases, you're probably best served passing. For Animal House, the bonus cuts are all live and, while serviceable, don't differ enough from the studio versions to stand out.

If you've never heard or owned this album, this edition is solid enough. If you already have a copy, there's nothing I've read or heard in here myself that indicates an upgrade is essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any Accept/Udo Fan! November 28, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Udo takes up where Accept left off back then. This is one of the top 3 of his solo cd's.
