Format: Audio CD
Originally released in 1986, Rock the World was the third (and for a long time, final) album from too often overlooked Canadian hard rockers Kick Axe. How this band never achieved more mainstream success is a mystery to me, as they are as good if not better than most of their 80's era peers.

Rock the World straddles that fine line between hard rock and heavy metal, and they do it in a way that should appeal to both camps. I suppose Kick Axe's sound was closer to hard rock, but it's got an edge and an epic quality that most "hair bands" never had. The music is melodic and accessible, but still hard hitting. The closest equivalents are probably Leatherwolf, Dokken, and to some extent Fifth Angel. The whole album rocks, but my favorite songs are the title track, "Warrior", "The Dark Crusade" and the completely awesome cover of Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain". I'm not a Fleetwood Mac fan by any means, but I have to admit that is a terrific song, especially in the hands of a band like Kick Axe.

Rock the World works on just about every possible level. It's at least close to "must have" status as an 80's rock album, commercial metal album, and Canadian rock album. Seriously, if you're a fan of any/all of these genres, you really need to have some Kick Axe in your collection, and Rock the World may be the best of the bunch.

NOTE: Rock the World was reissued in 2005 by MTM Classix. The album features digitally remastered sound and the bonus studio track "Piece of the Rock".

I became a fan of Kick Axe back in 2004 when I first heard of them. I didn't know until then they had performed a few of my favorite soundtrack tunes as a kid. They are commonly mistaken as "Spectre General," as the band's name was changed (without permission) for the Transformers animated movie back in 1986. Apparently the producers thought the name "Kick Axe" would offend parents. This album to me is the epitome of all things Metal! Out of the four albums: Vices, Rock the World, Welcome to the Club, and "IV", I have to say this is my favorite. The band seems very friendly to their fans and as one of the other reviewers stated, highly underrated. I love these guys! I purchased one of their CD's direct from the band and they were kind enough to send me an autographed photo. If you want some classic 80's rock or hair metal, this is definitely right up your alley. "Medusa" reminds me of an ex-would-be-g/f. :) I have to say "Devachan," "Rock the World," and the "Chain" are my favorites. If you saw Transformers back in the 80's and you liked Megatron's tune "Hunger," check this band out!

Albeit, not a Spencer Proffer( Quiet Riot, Billy Thorpe), it lacked no direction whatsoever. In fact, I hazard a rating that this is the most thoughtfully melodic and epic of all their productions. I would brand it as their magnum opus. If anyone dislikes this they probably prefer Beethoven over W.A. Mozart...

This Kick Axe CD is a rare find I have been looking for this CD for a LONG time and it was worth the wait! Undrated band from Canada.
Seller was from Germany and the shipping to the states was shorter than stated.
I would definatly buy from this seller again.
