Album Review

Originally released in the mid-'80s, Hungry Years has been reissued, re-released, and remastered many times in many countries. The most common American version perhaps being the 1995 Castle issue. Short and to the point, Hungry Years includes some of the best selections from Accept's early catalog, including I'm a Rebel, Breaker, and the metal classic Restless and Wild.

There is no substitute for Restless and Wild, so new fans should start with either that record or Balls to the Wall and leave Hungry Years to the collectors.
