W.A.S.P., one of my top five favorite bands of all time as of recently.This album is definitely their best, and is also definitely one of the best concept albums of all time IMO.Everything is great about this album, from the opening haunting track "The Titanic Overture" to the closing narrative "The Story Of Jonathan" (if you have the reissue).Blackie Lawless has just made a true masterpiece, and nothing he ever made or ever will make will never top this, never, ever.Standouts include the best ballad WASP ever made "Hold On To My Heart", the highly underrated "Doctor Rockter", and my favorite WASP song of all time, the metal bombast of "Chainsaw Charlie (Murders In The New Morgue)".

Standout Track:
"Chainsaw Charlie (Murders In The New Morgue)" http://grooveshark.com/s/Chainsaw+Ch...e/3VXRjJ?src=5
