By far the stand-out highlights of this album are the title track and "Hellrazor", but the album in general does seem to be a little more 'diverse'. Not so much that the band are taking a deliberate turn in the opposite musical direction, but it's somewhat easier to identify the NWOBHM-influenced songs from the punkier, rockier tunes like "Take it from Me" and "It Turns Your Head Around". I actually like the vocals here for the most part, though the nasally delivery on "Hellrazor" is pretty annoying. All in all, another solid 80s output from Girlschool.
