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



Side A:
1. FROZEN EYES - Intruder (World Of Madness)
  Great progressive Power/Speed/Heavy ruined by annoying vocals.
2. PURSUIT - Wastelands
  Melodic HM/HR with nice vocals of the olde British (?) high standard.
3. NITELYNE - Winners Or Loosers
  Amateurish post-NWOBHM. Not bad.
4. COVENANT - Breaker
  The kind of WILD garage/d.i.y./only-on-a-comp Metal that yours truly simply adores.
5. MOBIUS STRIP - Shout To The Top
  Glamish HR. Forgettable.
6. OUT OF ORDER - Illusion Of Fear
  "Pure" US-Power-Metal-w/-high-vox. Origin unknown tho'
7. PASSIONTIDE - Can't Live Without Your Love
  Uninspiring Hard Rock. No one's singing along to your chorus, guys :(
8. CRY - Party After Dark
  100% useless sleazerock.

Side B:
1. SIOUX - Too Late
  aor/melodic hr.
2. CERBERUS - Alpha Centauri
  Sounds like NWOBHM/Punk crossover a la '79. Bloody awesome!
3. KAMIKAZI - Meet Your Maker
  Another really cool garageMetal piece, now with female vocals!
4. MK II - Twilight Zone
  Rock'n'Rolly '77-punk!? Nice break, but what the hell is it doing here??
5. STRANDED - Love Lost Forever
  Melodic HR/HM standard.
6. ALIBI - Breakout
  Timeless NWOHM/HR. Goodish.
7. PAINT IT BLACK - The Next Show
  Melancholic, unintentionally original kitchen-sink Metalrock. I really, really like this stuff.
8. SUDDEN COMFORT - Compulsory Purchase
  Motörhead-wannabes or aging oi!punksters? Beats me..
