Balls to the Wall REISSUE

THE METAL MASTERS SERIES
Balls to the Wall is a classic album from the thundering title track to the quiet closing of Winterdeams. The band didnít find much success here in the states though, largely because of their lead singer Udo. Germanyís version of Bon Scott, the small camouflage clad frontman screeched his way into the hearts of some of the heavy metal audience, but didnít have the crossover appeal to break into the mainstream American audience. The two bonus live tracks donít add much to the album, but the digital mastering should make this an essential purchase particularly to those of you that hadnít already bought this album on cd. --Scott
