A lot of people thought W.A.S.P. was going soft with this album, but they were mistaken. One listen to 'Shoot from the Hip' was all you had to hear that Blackie was still on a rockin' rollin' rampage of sex, violence, and debauchery.

At the time this album was released, the PMRC was in it's full fury. Tipper Gore had targeted W.A.S.P. as one of the worst bands ever. Blackie had to bow a little and remove the periods in between the letters of "WASP" and this is the only album where this happens. With the next album "Live... in the Raw" the dots were back as drops of blood and have been there ever since. Also on this album Johny Rod from King Kobra came in to assume bass duty as Blackie went to the guitar for the first time on a W.A.S.P. album. Randy Piper, an original member, was now gone.

The opening is a bit corny, but you gotta realize that Blackie is the ringleader and afterall, someone needs to welcome you inside the madness, so it might as well be him.

The opening track is the title track and it's awesome. One of the best opening guitar riffs W.A.S.P. ever did. The song is full of energy, rampant, and exciting. The next tune, the cover of "I don't need no doctor" is simply awesome. '95 Nasty' should have been a hit, but it's still played live to this day.

Not everyone liked 'Mantronic', but I liked it. A bionic man with balls of steel is always a great idea for a tune. "King of Sodom and Gommarah", "Sweet Cheetah", and the closer "The Rock Rolls on" are also standouts.

This is a great album.

I don't get the people who're bitching tht Blackie, Chris and the boys sold out with this. When you're not a musician, you just do not understand the concept of 'maturity' and every musician at one point or another wants to be known as mature in their offering.

The opening track is cool with the calliope and blackie's voice enticing you to come inside the Electric Circus to see the animals is too cool. Then track two, a cover of the Humble Pie song, "I Don't Need No Doctor" is a rippin' tune with great guitar work. In fact this rendition inspired me to try and learn it and I eventually discovered who were Humbel Pie.

The next two songs that send me are 'Mantronic' - where Mr. Lawless sings "I got balls made of steel that you wouldn't believe!" and then the Biblical 'King of Sodom' - "I want the flesh, gotta have it, I love it to death!". Both of those songs are the type that urged me to practice guitar. My first rock song I learned was another Blackie Lawless tune called "Wild Child" and it too rocks out!

If you like hard driving, heavy metal with a bit of a theatrical flair in teh vein of Alice Cooper and a forerunner of Marilyn Manson, then Black Lawless, Chris Holmes & Randy Piper will be a band you want to listen to. The musicianship is there just shut your hole, open your ears and crank the volume way up!

The band at their classic best!!! I love every song on this album. I remember getting it on cassette when it came out, and loving it. It's just as good as it ever was.

This third outing from Wasp, their most ambitious yet that point, marked the addition of Johnny Rod on bass, allowing chief songrwriter and creative force Blackie Lawless to made the transition from bass to guitar. Baseball fan Lawless said in a magazine interview that playing bass was like wearing the "tools of ignorance" (playing catcher), and he was glad for the opportunity to be more of a frontman.

The album itself featured more strong original material, as well as two impressive covers: the Ashford-Simpson Motown classic "I Don't Need no Doctor" in the style of Humble Pie at Fillmore East in 1971, and Uriah Heep's breakthrough single in the States, "Easy Livin'". Perhaps even more than their debut, this album cemented Wasp's place among the standouts of the 80's LA metal scene and legitimate contenders for the title, "The Most Outrageous Band in the World." It's an essential component of any Wasp or metal fan's collection.

W.A.S.P has to be one of the top 5 bands of all time, hands down.... This band is fun, exciting, and great story tellers. Electric circus is one of the top 3 of their entire catalog. I can listen to hit over and over and not get tired of it.
