With this quality recording, not only should they retain old fans, but it should win them new ones across the universe!

The explosive energy of the title of this excellently produced album reflects the enormous energy of this triumphant return of the revamped Autograph. Talented founding members Steve Lynch (guitar virtuoso, famous for his two-handed finger-tapping shredding technique) and Randy Rand (bass) are joined by superb musicians Simon Daniels (vocals and guitar) and Marc Wieland (drums). Newly signed to EMP, run by Megadeth's bassist David Ellefson, this is the first full-length album released by this new reinvigorated line-up. Heavier and without keyboards, don't expect a carbon copy of the old Autograph, but do expect a fine Melodic Rock album that will literally bite you awake.

The title track starts with rousing riffs, a loud exclamation of passion from Daniels, and a nice little hammer-down flourish from Lynch (in case you forgot whose illustrious house you were in), and in moments you are catapulted into the chorus. The impossible to ignore 'Get Off Your Ass' is cleverly designed to do the trick with anyone mistaken enough to think they can sit through a show from these guys! This also contains the four excellent songs from their 'Louder' EP released last year, including the extremely radio-friendly AOR track 'I Lost My Mind In America' and a live version of the incredibly well-known Metal anthem par-excellence

'Turn Up the Radio', customized to suit the new line-up's direct and extremely crowd-friendly approach. It also includes five new songs, the love song 'All I Own' opens with a poignant, cleverly written vignette before it launches into the big sound we expect from this group. With a nod to the complex structures of The Beatles in the melody, it also showcases the strength of the Blues Rock vocals that Daniels brings to the party, all followed by a hauntingly beautiful, super classy solo from guitar master Lynch.

The front cover of this album depicts the Autograph arrowhead insignia literally blasting off into space. First time around these guys were playing arenas before they were signed, and they have been doing this again this time around. Their sights are set on nothing less than the stratosphere, and with this quality recording, not only should they retain old fans, but it should win them new ones across the universe!
