Label: Alcatraz #: 102 Country: Belgium

(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)

Side A:
1. SHELL SHOCK - Gorby's Coming
  An unusually great, tight & well produced Motörhead-clone. And I REALLY mean clone this time.
2. SYRINX - Hit Back
  Fem-fronted, good'n'rowdy Metal. Heidi sounds like a punky Kim LaChance.
3. RAHWAY - Foolish Pride
  Slick and laidback aor/melodic hr.
4. SYRINX - Fatal Fact
  Catchy, upbeat Metalrock that'll get you in a good mood despite the fact that they're not exactly reinventing the wheel here.
5. SHELL SHOCK - Good & Loud
  Taking on the more R'n'R-side of Lemmy & co and doing it really well to.

Side B:
1. RAHWAY - The Joker
  A less "Metal" Whitesnake, whatever you'd make of that..
2. CAT WEAZEL - Mission To My Mind
  Melodic Hard Rock with a few seconds of heavier riffings inside, making them mildly endurable.
3. SYRINX - Don't Give Up
  The intro rips off B*n J*vi in a rather (unintentionally) comical way, but otherwise it's still OK Hard Rock/riff-Metal.
4. SHELL SHOCK - Code of Silence
  Headbanging anthem rising to the top of the LP by way of more 'head-worship. A perfect ending.
