GREAT album! I got into the band in the fall of 2007 and I ordered this and American Metal at the same time. Out of all the Lizzy albums I’ve heard since then, this is still my favorite and is unlike anything else the band has done.

The album is incredibly atmospheric and gets downright creepy on the one-two punch of “One False Move” and “Love Is a Crime”. The whole album is just a great ride through debauchery and Lizzy himself does a wonderful job on vocals. I also love the use of horns throughout this album.

There are some albums that I love to play during certain times of the year, and this is a definitely a fall/winter-feeling album for me (as is Judas Priest’s Painkiller). When the weather starts getting cool and I’m enjoying cold weather in the mornings on my way to work, I pop this one in.

Sad but true, when I first bought the original CD version, I didn’t realize there was a remastered version released in 2007 with two extra tracks plus a DVD. =( I’ll have to track that one down at some point.

Highlights: “Master of Disguise”, “One False Move”, “Love Is a Crime”, “Sins of the Flesh”, “Never Too Young”, “Waiting in the Wings”, “Roll Over and Play Dead”, “Under the Rose”
