I first heard "Blow My Fuse" when I was about 9 or 10 years old.I liked it, but never really thought about digging deeper into Kix's catalog.Well all that change during the summer of last year (this is when I discovered a lot of bands that I liked).I decided to listen to this album from track 1 to track 10, and man was I blown away! This album is by no doubt Kix's greatest, and everyone needs to give it a chance.Steve Whiteman, has a great gritty tone to his voice reminiscent of say Brian Johnson.Ronnie Younkins and Brian Forsythe are both stellar guitar players, and both have a killer guitar tone that I want to replicate myself.Donnie Purnell's bass playing compliments Jimmy Chalfant's incredible drumming nicely.Highlights include my second favorite ballad of all time "Don't Close Your Eyes", the anthemic title-track, and the best Kix song of them all, the insanely catchy rocker "Cold Blood".

Standout Track:
"Cold Blood"
6/28 - Def Leppard/Styx/Tesla
8/29 - Rick Springfield/Loverboy/The Romantics
8/30 - Motley Crue
