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.

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 !!!

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!

Origins of thrash, death, power, and neo-classical metal can all be heard on Accept's breakthrough album.

It's an album that's simultaneously diverse, yet uniform in its rugged, pure spirit. That's the beauty of it. The AC/DCesq rock love song, "Don't Go Stealing My Soul Away" fits right in with the proto-death/black metal track "Demon's Night," a song that Cannibal Corpse would later cover. Udo's shrieking vocal's and Hoffmann's jagged, yet sophisticated lead playing tie the disparate tracks together.

"Fast as a Shark," is one of the heaviest songs ever recorded. The extreme metal template of rapid double-bass, chugging riffs, and violent lyrics are all there. Nine months later, Metallica's Kill 'em All set the heavy bar much higher, but the legacy of the song lives on.

"Neon Nights" is a semi-ballad with a solo borrowed from a classical piece that I can't remember. Closing the album, "Princess of the Dawn," lays the groundwork for power metal with it's epic feel, fantasy lyrics, and mandolin outro that is actually a manipulated guitar.

Yet Restless and Wild is not just seeds of what was to come. It's a powerful, heavy, and catchy album in its own right. It's an essential of the metalhead catalog.

**There is no official reissue for this album that I know of. There's two different covers available, but there's not much difference in the products, so in terms of the physical entity, Restless doesn't give much to a album collection.
