Great atmosphere and surprisingly dark lyrical themes. Me like.

I think there's a couple of weak tracks, the rest is classic BÖC material.

A classic album and among the best of the band, as many with this material knew the group long ago.

I'd only listened to "Burnin For You". Now I've listened to the whole album. Very enjoyable and, as someone else mentioned, surprisingly dark (and metal!) lyrics
