80 of 85 people found the following review helpful By Jeff Zakany on September 28, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I'm writing due to a bad review by another person. Most of the reviews for this album are 4-5 stars, but one individual gave them two stars because "it's hard to tell if they are taking themselves seriously or if the whole thing is a big joke." He continued to lump WASP in with the bands from the 80's as a whole saying "Fans of eighties metal like Motley Crue and Ratt may find something of interest here, but bands like this were a dime a dozen in the eighties and most created music far superior to this."

Wow. This guy is way off the mark. I was around in the 80's, and I was (and still am) into much of the rock/metal from that era. I feel it is my duty to set the record straight.

Do they take thelmselves seriously? Yes and no. WASP's leader, Blackie Lawless, is a very intelligent, well-spoken person. He knows reality from fiction. The outlandish costumes, obnoxious lyrics, and over-the-top stage persona are not to be taken seriously. But their dedication to their fans and their intense, roaring, screaming brand of metal comes straight from the heart.

Fans of the 90's grunge sound do not realize that at one time Rock Stars and their bands were bigger than life. They were charismatic, confident icons who captivated legions of fans with live shows that were closer to a circus than a mere musical performance. Their songs were a vehicle to escape the BS we must deal with in the real world. THAT is WASP!

Those 90's grunge bands think they should be taken seriously because they whine, moan and complain about the pain and anxiety in today's world? HA! They are so depressing they make me want to slit my wrists. They say "Our live shows are all about the music, not the flash", so they go onstage in T-shirts and jeans and have no fireworks, effects, or anything.

When KISS and ALICE COOPER came out with a shocking show, sticky tunes, easy listening songs; too many bands tried to copy the same line. Just a few ones evolve into something good (WASP, MOTLEY CRUE, TWISTED SISTER and maybe another one that I don't remember right now).

Well, WASP at first sight, when they came out (1983) seemed like a tight band, just as Van Halen, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Etc. The members seemed to have a good time but in a few months the one that standed out and stayed in the band was Blackie Lawless. And they seemed tight because they sounded great together. Maybe they weren't as big as some other bands did in the 80's but with this CD they printed a mark on those days.

WASP had a bad attitude with melodic songs, they sound hard and fast but very melodic. Blackie has a voice that only his image could fit, deep and very high range. This album almost did it as a classic, maybe if they had stayed together more time they would have been bigger.

The uptempo part of the CD is "I wanna be somebody", "L.O.V.E. Machine", "School daze", "On your knees", "The torture never stops", we have a very slow (at least for them) and very nice song "Sleeping (In the fire), and not as fast but very dark and crushing are "B.A.D.", "Tha flame", "Hellion", "Tormentor". The music on this CD is very diverse and enjoyable.

On this new edition they included the first EP that they released and it was called ANIMAL (F*!" like a beast). For my taste, they spread the songs cleverly. First they put "Animal" and at the end they include "Show no mercy" and "Paint it Black". This EP was very hard to find in those days (well, at least here in Mexico).

"Animal" is almost as good as any song on the original release, very fast and raw.

Format: Audio CD
Unlike most 80's metal like Motley Crue, Bon Jovi and Poison, WASP was the only glam band with teeth to it, they had an argressive sound and some preety shocking song subjects. Notice i didn't call them "pop" metal either, that was one of the greatest things about WASP back in the day, they didn't write BS about partying or breaking up with your girlfreind like %90 of 80's cheese rock bands did.No,they wrote about "F"ing like a beast and being tortured,having orgys of blood at their concerts.WASP is the only 80's band i like,they were just different from the pack of jovis,ratts,sisters,cindrellas,and wingers of the day. WASP's debut album is there best (the last command is ALMOST as good as this) there is the outragoues "f" like a beast, the obnoxious fist pumping "i wanna be somebody", the hilarious "school days","the flame" and more on this album.

it's weird because i ussaly don't like 80's rock, espessicaly glam metal, but i love this. Blackie lawless was just a bad @$$ frontman,he rules. Overall, this album is nothing short of perfect and you will have a fun time listening to it as i did, just don't expect any intelligent or meaningful songs here.

Absolutely the best single release by W.A.S.P.! This was a phenomenal album when it first came out and the CD is still great to listen to today. This is metal at it's finest! The band would continue to put out good material for years to come, but in my opinion, this was the pinnacle of their creative careers. Every song here is good, whether it is heavy or slow. If I had to pick a weakest moment it would be the track "Hellion", simply because I can't even remember it at 3 in the morning, but the others ring loud and clear.
As far as good songs go, there is more than an ample supply. Tracks worth a close listen include "B.A.D.", "School Daze", "On Your Knees", "Tormentor", and "The Torture Never Stops". Exceptional songs that should have been huge hits are "I Wanna Be Somebody", "The Flame", "LOVE Machine" and my favorite "Sleeping in the Fire". The bonus tracks make this an even better deal as you get "Animal", a great version of "Paint It Black", and "Show No Mercy".
Blackie Lawless vocals are very good on this CD, but the high point is probably the guitar work of Chris Holmes and Randy Piper. Not quite as good as the twin leads of Thin Lizzy, but very good indeed! The production and musicianship make this an excellent release. NO great metal collection should be complete without this recording. This is one of my 100 all-time best. If you like this you may try HEADLESS CHILDREN.
