Editorial Reviews

The Swedish garage rock icons' 2002 album is a flawless collection of anthemic soulful rock songs. For fans of 70s arena rock & raw Detroit rock.

I'm a big Hellacopters fan, but I was a little dissapointed with this release. It's very produced, and lacks the rawness of earlier albums. There's about 4 songs on the album that I think are great, though - classic Hellacopters. Most songs are somewhat "poppy", even cheesy (especially the chorus'). What I like about The Hellacopters is their truely authentic 70's Rock sound, and similarities to say Thin Lizzy, and Ted Nugent. This album sounds like they moved into the mid-80's (and not the GOOD mid-80's), with more similarities to say, Boston, or dare I say, Foreigner, or something...My favorite Hellacopters releases are still "Grande Rock" and "High Visibility". I hope they go back to the sound of these albums on their future releases...

The Hellacopters are the MC5 for a new generation. It is a pity however that the generation hasn't discovered them yet. It is almost criminal that bands like this go undiscovered and unheard while groups like Nickelback and Linkin Park are thrust upon us through the back pockets of record execs giving payouts to commercial radio stations. This is one of the best rock & roll albums I've heard in years. I've had it for about 6 months and it is still in regular rotation, there's just something about it that makes it special. It may be that the keyboards has added an extra dimension to the sound, something that seemed a bit missing on their earlier albums. One of the best things about these guys are their consistency, the just do not make any bad songs and all the ones here are great. There is a slight, very slight valley in the middle of the album around tracks 8 and 9 where the tempo slows down a little but really, I am only splitting hairs.
If I must a point from Rick Kutneroe's great review at allmusic.com, they have proved that the term classic rock doesn't only apply to music from decades ago. True lovers and rock & roll unite and rock with the Hellacopters!

No matching black suits, no stupid fake macho names, just more smokin' rock 'n' roll from one of the most underrated ( and un-noticed) bands out there. Everything about this album is better than any of their previous work (not to say they don't rock)...the production, the songs, the band, Nicke's voice, etc.
Boba's piano & organ seems to fit better than before, and the songs are more, dare I say, "poppy-er", but they still have that edge that makes 'em rock.
This album doesn't even fit in the so-called "garage rock" category. They seem to have moved into a new area that isn't like any of their previous work. But if you're a fan of gold ol' fashioned rock 'n' roll, GET THIS CD!!! After you listen to it, do yourself an even bigger favor by seeing them live...you will not be disappointed! The only reservation I have is, when it's this good, where do they go from here?!?

The Hellacopters have their roots in the 1970's rock and you can easily hear that these guys have listened to early Kiss a lot. "By the grace of God" and the equally good "High visability" displays a band that have the melody, the groove, and the more or less "dirty" rock sound that got lost sometimes in the late 70's.
"By the grace of God" include several songs with hit potential like the title track, "Carry me home", "Down on free street", "Rainy days revisited" among others. ...
Amazon claims that this is The Hellacopters second album - WRONG! The band have released at least five records but it's on this one and the former "High visiblility" the band shows how good they really are. The earlier albums is more raw and dirty - don't buy them unheard!

Great rock album. Gotta kind of wonder what happened in between Payin' The Dues and this album. This album is much more slick and restrained with a more clean sound. Definitely a lot of time spent on production. Kind of lost the harder more punk edge. Definitely has kind of a "classic rock" feel to it. Songs have more structure and are more radio friendly. Different from the stuff I've heard from them previously...but not "bad" different. Just different. Took me by surprise most definitely.

Big guitar riffs, pounding piano, super catchy tunes. By the Grace of God makes me happy...an inspiration to dig into the closet and pull out my old leather jacket and air guitar in the living room with the stereo up to 11. For those who dig the big sounds of super charged 70's arena rawk (with some Big Star thrown into the mix and nasty Motor City 5 kicking your jams all over the place)or the likes of Nebula, Kyuss. The Hellacopters Rawk.

I've been a Hellacopters fan for less than a year but I've already obtained all their five original albums plus a compilation. When they did an American club tour in early 2002, visiting from their native Sweden, I caught them in three cities and found them to be one of the best live acts I've seen in ages. The Hellacopters are surely a band tailor-made for a small but enthusiastic cult of collectors and fanatics. Head honcho Nicke Andersson is a hugely prolific songwriter with a vast knowledge of American rock - so vast that no two Hellacopters albums sound the same. The band started as frantic, headbashing punk rockers inspired by the classic Detroit raunch rock of the Stooges and MC5. Strangely they are now dealing in the type of sounds that punk was meant to destroy in the first place - classic blue-collar American rock n' roll. True fans will respect the band's drive for development and improvement, rather than whine about how they should still sound like they did several albums ago (the bane of all artists who choose to advance themselves rather than pander to predictable public demands). Nicke even appears to be addressing this issue in "Go Easy Now" on this album.
Given this pursuit of classic rock sounds, the songwriting here has little variety and is getting rather predictable. The songs "Carry Me Home" and "UYFS" sound like slightly heavy combinations of Jackson Browne and Boston, for cryin' out loud, and can make your swear you're in a time warp from 1976. But the album is saved by the enthusiasm of the Hellacopters' playing and their crunchy, powerful, and flawless delivery. Good examples are "All Time Low" and "It's Good But It Just Ain't Right.
