After the great "Fifth Angel" the band starts to see over the horizon for other influences. The sound changes to a bit more hard rock driven sound that still has the signature Fifth Angel sound from the first album left. It doesn't quite make it all the way up to the Fifth Angel album level but still they delivers a really good record filled with "hits".

This album is not at all so bad that the ratings make em out to be and probably scares away many people. Me myself doubted at first. But after hearing it i can easily say it was worth the time. Overall i would actaully say this album is better than their debut. Different but somewhat better.

7. We're Back
8. Anything For You

Debut full length album by FWOSHM band E.F Band. A funny note is that Lars Ulrich of Metallica was a big fan of E.F Band before he started Metallica. E.F Band playes a form of heavy metal simmilar to the NWOBHM. Highlight of the album is the closer "Anything for you" which has a nice bluesy feel to it.
