One of the best hard rock/heavy metal album's of the late 1980's. Very seldom do I run across an album that I absolutely love right out of the box, but this is one that I did. I wore the cassette copy down to shreds. Somehow managed to let go of the CD replacement years ago, and finally picked this up when I realized this reissue on the UK Lemon label was available.
There have been comments about this not being remastered. No, it does not appear to have been remixed from the original multi-tracks, but to my ears it does not sound inferior to the original CD, and some cuts even sound a little clearer. The bonus cut is a non essential radio mix of the single "Get It On", which is already present on the album, but it's a great tune, so what the heck? This record stands on its own, bonus tracks not required.
Does Kingdom Come sound like Led Zepplin? Yes. So what? If you eliminate all the hair bands from the '80's that ripped off Zepplin, Deep Purple, and Black Sabbath, there wouldn't be much left from that era except synth-pop!
Even Dio's "Last in Line" dripped with Zepplin "feel." And what about Whitesnake's "Slip of the Tongue" released the very next year after this? Well shame on Kingdom Come, but hooray for Whitesnake's Zepplin "tribute" because they had Steve Vai on guitar? Whatever. Both the industry and fans can be fickle and stupid sometimes.
I can't believe Jimmy Page even had the nerve to say "Obviously it can get to the point where it gets past being a compliment, and it can be rather annoying, when you've got things like Kingdom Come, actually ripping riffs right off, that's a different thing altogether." Riffs? Hard rock is riff driven, and it is standard for bands to take cool old riffs and build new songs around them with their own melodies. Kingdom Come is not the first band, or the last, to do that. And, what riffs does he mean? The same ones that Zepplin ripped off from the old blues records they grew up listening to? Yeah, like Zep invented the blues. (ROTFLMAO!)
What Kingdom Come does here is revive that classic old sound that Zepplin and others made popular with songs that are cooler, playing that is tighter and edgier, to the point that a lot of Led Zepplin records sound like the work of a sloppy garage band by comparison.
If you like that heavy, bluesy, bottom heavy classic old school metal sound, pick this up. It is an underrated classic!

I remember when this album came out. I had to buy another one, because I wore the poor cassete to death!
Finding someone that had this on cd was HUGE to me (retro flashing back and all, lol) and the cd arrived in FLAWLESS condition, and was well packaged!
I not only recommend this seller, but i HIGHLY recommend this album if you EVER liked Rock n Roll, and Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, etc. REAL good band. This album, and the one that followed were the ONLY 2 good albums they ever produced. The ones that followed had different line-ups, and too much ego-drama amongst the band mates to make any other album decent.

This album sounds as good today as it did when it first came out. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes music from the '80s.
