The excellent production gives it points as it is recorded and mixed very well.
J. Lenglet
Accept is know for their song "Balls to the Wall", and while a great tune, I have to say, this is my favorite Accept album.
O. Zarantonello
"Aiming High" is a tune that is a great example of a classic driving power metal riff combined with a memorable chorus.

Accept was a German metal band that sounded like a cross between Judas Priest and AC/DC with a troll as lead singer who resembled an over-the-top mesh of Bon Scott and Brian Johnson.

Accept released ten studio albums during their career; most cite "Restless & Wild" (1983) and "Balls to the Wall" (1984) as their best recordings. This is true but I feel 1986's "Russian Roulette" stands on a par with these two earlier releases.

Here's a run down of the songs on "Russian Roulette:"

1.) T.V. WAR (3/5 Stars): This is an energetic and fun metal rocker reminiscent of "Fast as a Shark" but not as good.

2.) MONSTERMAN (5/5 Stars): "Monsterman" is brief at a mere 3:24, but it's catchy as heck. The bridge is melodically potent and the chorus is uniquely inspired. You'll never hear anything else like it. Who knows what the lyrics are about, who cares?

3.) RUSSIAN ROULETTE (4/5 Stars): The titular song eerily starts off with a militaristic drone and riff before kicking into a mid-paced slice of 80's non-hair-band metal. In light of the chorus one wonders why they didn't call the song "Wargames."

4.) IT'S HARD TO FIND A WAY (4.5/5 Stars): This is a catchy pop rocker with an incredibly hook-laden chorus. It should have been a hit on the radio. Some cried "Sell out!" but, come on, it's just ONE song.

5.) AIMING HIGH (3/5 Stars): This isn't a bad piece of filler between the better songs.

6.) HEAVEN IS HELL (5/5 Stars): This is the second masterpiece of the album. It's structure is very reminiscent of "Balls to the Wall," although it doesn't sound like that song.

I have read a lot of mixed reviews of this album, people either love it or hate it. Well the same goes for most of the Accept catalogue, due to the singing style of Udo Dirkschneider who sings like no other. You either love his voice or hate it.
I love it. He has the wildest, wickedest screaming vocal style you will ever hear, that just blows you away.
I must disagree with several other reviewers who claim his voice does not match the musical style of the band, because I think it matches perfectly. Accept have never been a commercial metal band, they tried that once with a different singer and it failed. Accept, like Udo's voice is hard, powerful and aggressive, and "Russian Roulette" is no commercial metal album. It rips into top gear right from the opening track "T.V. War", and keeps the throttle open through "Monsterman". The following title track is one of my all time Accept favourites, with Udo mixing subtle vocals with his familiar banshee screaming, gang vocals, and killer guitar riffs. As another reviewer said - this album is worth getting for this song alone, but there's more...
"It's Hard To Find A way" is Udo sounding softer and is the mellowest track on the album, with a similar sound to "Winter Dreams" from their "Balls To The Wall" album.
"Aiming High" is another great Accept rocker, and the following track "Heaven Is Hell" is a classic. It is the longest track on the album and I love it; again the subtlety and the screaming, the gang vocals - it's great.

Well I guess I should pay my respect to this

awesome album, I own it both on vinyl and CD

and it was my first Accept album, it quickly became

my favourite. So today I returned to it after maybe

5 years and I have to say that it still holds up.

And I just love the gang backing vocals it just sounds great.

So I rate it pretty high maybe nr 1...hm well I don't know.. it's one of their finest, in my mind anyway!!
