Accept were and are one of the greatest and most underrated Metal bands of all time, and Restless and Wild is their masterpiece. As a kid in the early eighties I was a true metal head into the likes of Sabbath, Scorps, Priest and Maiden, but my whole world took a turn for the HEAVIER when I was kicked in the face by the double bass onslaught of Fast as a Shark! Metal had taken an evolutionary step towards true aggression and somehow everything else seemed a little tamer in comparison. These german metal maestroes captured everything that makes metal so appealing in my book, true musicianship,power, precision, touches of classical/gothic melody that doesen't deplete the noize factor,lyrics that exalt a rude and crude roughneck metal ethic(Ahead of the Pack,title track) vague occultic mysticism (Princess of the Dawn, Demon's Night) and balls out beer swilling anthems (Get Ready, Flash Rockin Man). This is pure blood & guts street level metal with no time for sissy poser wannabes, all filtered through an obviously foreign (german/european) sensibility thankfully devoid of american style concessions to glamor and rock stardom! Despite some opinions to the contrary Udo's vocals are a perfect compliment to the sound and lyrics. His audio and physical lack of beauty may have kept Accept from achieving "stardom" but in my opinion kept them perfectly on track as far as the aesthetics and ethics of true metal go. Accept remain today as they were then, obscure at best outside metal circles, and a joke to music snobs who don't know any better, but that's O.K. only the faithful have a right to know anyway...

Germany's premier metal band. This is the first recording of Accept that I ever heard. As soon as I heard the record scratch at the beginning of "Fast as a Shark", I was hooked. If I had to choose a fave Accept disk, if not this one then Balls to the Wall would be my fave. None the less, it just KICKS BOOTIE. From high tempoed, fast paced, as the title song "Restless and Wild" to more layed back kinda' in your face thumpin' like "Neon Nights", this will appeal to all serious metal-heads. Udo's voice is quite rough on this one, but the intensity of it fits the music to a tee. Wolf, Peter and Stephen are their usual tight trio.

I completely agree with "voidmans" assessment of this CD - hard to add to this very hit-the-nail-on-the-head review.
I have been an Accept fan since their first release, and they put a fresh, aggressive-yet-melodic and 'stand up for yourself' power approach to metal. 'Restless' was their best release, as they combined some blistering fast songs with great 'standard' party-metal and clever ballads. This stuff was considered somewhat underground when it came out, as the metal on the airwaves was either airbrushed or hackneyed. Udo's voice and the twin guitar attack was their trademark (similar to the JP attack), however they were different enough from the rest to demand attention.
This CD still sounds fresh after nearly 20 years - a worthy addition to most any collection!

First Heard this title track back in 83 and I was totally floored. So much US 80's metal sounds cheesy today but this Hard Core EuroMetal will blow your socks off... This album helped me learn how to play guitar and play it hard!!! The lyrics on the title track Restless and Wild are an anthem to be remembered. This album was light years ahead of its time.
All the other songs on this are a must for anybody who likes Rage Against the Machine and Metallica. This is not all thrash either listen to Princess of the Dawn and hear the European Classical Music Influence and let your jaw drop !!!

This album was an eyeopener when it was released. I honestly thought it was the heaviest album ever and that nothing would ever touch it for heaviness. I was quite literally blown away.

Now, over twenty years on it still gets my motor running into overdrive. It represents a milestone in metal for many reasons. Accept, and this album in particular, were the reason that a whole new generation of metal players emerged.

It was German metal. Now we speak of the classic German metal sound, the classic German metal bands but along with the Scorpions, it was Accept that cracked open the floodgates.

With the release of Restless & Wild they truly hit their stride. The groundwork had already been done years previously. They were amazing live, commanded a very large following for a relatively 'unknown' band and managed to lay down an album sound that was far from demo quality but retained all the raw energy of their live shows while avoiding too much slickness and polish. This album took things up to a whole new level.

Back in the eighties reviewers would describe metal bands as playing 'tight'. Accept were so tight as to be almost clockwork but while still retaining a raw energy that constantly put them on the limit.

'Fast as a Shark' is the one that everybody gets pummelled by and with good reason. It's impossible not to get sucked up by it. It's brutal yet has a lot of melody running through it and it's not agression for the sake of agression. Restless & Wild get's into the slipstream of 'Fast ...' and does well to maintain the momentum. However, it's not until Neon Nights emerges to close side one that the listener finally shakes off the effect of 'Fast ...'. For that reason I tend to play this album on random.
