Their album Hysteria is an amazing album with many single hits. I myself have listed to this album a few times over and i must agree with fans that this is a truly incredible album. Not only is it clean cut Heavy Rock its also fun to listen to. Their Music style and song have followed rock through the years while also staying a true beginning of rock and roll band. They have amazing sound that isn’t just to today’s years, their rock is old school, new and every year in between and they have beautifully found a way to keep with the times. I strongly reccomend this album and this band to any heavy metal, hard rock or rock and roll fan that is looking for a good original band.
