Additional info
Music by Accept, Words by Accept + Deaffy.

Recorded and mixed at Dierks Studios, Cologne, West Germany, July/August, 1983.

Produced by Accept

European label Lark Records released the album in December 1983, but its U.S. and Canadian release was delayed until January 1984 as to avoid confusion over with band's then-current album "Restless and Wild", which did arrive in the U.S., U.K. and Canada (and even some parts of Europe) in early 1983.

Two different remasters of this album exist, with different bonus tracks. The 2001 remaster, which is a part of Sony's "The Metal Masters Series" (this is the only Accept album from that series, though), contains the following bonus tracks:

11. Head Over Heels (Live)
12. Love Child (Live)

The 2002 BMG Remastered Edtion has the following bonus tracks, both taken from "Kaizoku-Ban - Live in Japan":

11. Up to the Limit (Live) (4:53
12. Head Over Heels (Live) (5:58)

Rating: 10 Classic album. never gets old. and 'winterdreams' is one of the best ballads ever recorded. shame it doesnt get its due.

  I only recently realized this: the combo of Turn Me On / Losers and Winners is absolutely genius:

Turn Me On ends with the chorus, then after 2 seconds' break then BAM that ungodly kickass riff from Losers and Winners.

  Head Over Heels is amazing, but the song deals with what?

Rating: 8 Good album, but maybe a little boring at times. The closing track is very impressive.
