The influences of classic music in Metal Hear t and Bound To Fail were a big thing back then, because it was probably the first time this was melded with heavy metal. If I now listen to it it appears quite cheesy. Better done were the jazz elements in Teach Us To Survive, which still are special and cool. The songwriting on this record couldn't keep up with its two predecessors.
There's not a real bad track on it, but most of the songs are just average. There are only two songs which stand out. Carl Black : I was recently told by a member of this here group that Accept should be included as a forefather of thrash metal.
And while they do have a claim to that crown with songs like Fast As A Shark I'm sorry to say, they don't show any evidence of thrash on this outing. It's competent hard rock that's played well, but it's just a bit ordinary.
One eye on American rock radio and one eye on the big arenas. Alex Hayes : Hmm. A big problem for me with this one was all in the timing.
Ideally, my first introduction to the music of Accept should have been during my teenage years in the late 80s and not as someone rapidly approaching his 46th birthday in I'd probably have loved this album had the former actually been the case.
It's extremely well produced and executed, very aggressive, very macho, very 'Teutonic', and, frankly, slightly corny, metal. Another issue here was that I struggled with Udo Dirkschneider's voice, which grated on me very quickly. There's good musicality here though, and I can fully understand how Accept managed to cultivate both the influential reputation that they enjoy and the admirable career path they've sustained for decades.
Gary Claydon : I've always thought that if ever a German version of This Is Spinal Tap were made they wouldn't have to look any further than Accept for inspiration for the titular band. It's all there really, the album covers, the song titles, the lyrics Exhibit A: " Son of a bitch, Kiss my ass ".
I first encountered Accept when I bought a copy of Breaker from the import rack at Virgin Records on a whim. I liked the album cover. I also liked most of the tracks it contained. Uncomplicated, unpretentious metal. Same live. This was a 'leave your brain at the door and have a blast' band and that's absolutely fine by me. But they lost me at Metal Heart. Sure, the production was slicker than any of the earlier albums but this, combined with a more commercial approach clearly targeted at the U.
It's not all bad, the first four tracks are OK-ish but the rest? Dear me, no. Screaming For A Love-Bite? Did I mention my Spinal Tap theory? Chris Downie : While the Scorpions deservedly hold the accolade of German metal's finest exponents, there is a compelling case to be made that Accept deserve the proverbial honourable mention, not only on the strength of the Udo-fronted era, but the late career renaissance of the last decade, for which the contribution of impressive frontman Mark Tornillo cannot be overstated.
Hence many of the songs were written solely by Rodgers, although some are credited to the entire band as a symbolic gesture, including the single " Wishing Well ".
Bundrick wrote two of the album's eight tracks. Meanwhile, Kossoff was extremely resentful of "Snuffy" Walden being brought in as a session musician to provide guitar tracks when the other band members' patience began to break. He is uncredited on the hit single "Wishing Well", however, the lead guitar on the track is unmistakably Kossoff's, and Kirke has confirmed this. The credits on the album sleeve are inaccurate; Kossoff plays on the whole of side 1 and the final track on side 2, "Seven Angels".
Walden's guitar appears on tracks 2, 3, and 4 of side 2, so "Seven Angels" features both him and Kossoff. Walden also appears on some alternate mixes of "Wishing Well", but not on the version released for the UK single and album. Warrior Soul. Dying Just to Live. Roland Grapow. Closer to My Heart.
