Reseña de álbum

Accept's most notorious album, Balls to the Wall was also their biggest commercial success. Following hot upon the heels of their creative breakthrough, Restless and Wild, you'd also be hard pressed to find a more sexually charged record in any musical genre. Its hysterically nonsensical lyrics notwithstanding, the legendary title track remains an irresistible, fist-pumping masterpiece that came to epitomize the modern, slow-marching metal anthem as it became known. And when paired with second single "London Leatherboys," it arguably constitutes the most blatantly homoerotic couplet in the history of heavy metal (eat your heart out, Rob Halford). "Fight It Back" is about as close as the band gets to their old, semi-thrashing ways (taken to the limit the previous year with the maniacal "Fast as a Shark"), and it is the more melodic "Head Over Heels" and semi-ballad "Losing More Than You've Ever Had" that set the tone for Accept's future direction. The album's third undisputed classic, the driving "Love Child," kicks off side two with one of metal's great staccato riffs — so good, the band revisits it nearly verbatim a few songs later with "Losers and Winners," which is nearly as powerful. And though not quite as celebrated, the remaining tracks are no less potent, especially the slowly building tension heard on the downright lascivious "Turn Me On." The bottom line here is that this, like its predecessor Restless and Wild, is an essential heavy metal album, and any fan worth his salt should own them both. But, for the sake of first-time visitors, Balls to the Wall is the slightly more melodic, less gritty of the two. Whichever you chose, you can only win. [Legacy's 2001 reissue appends a pair of live bonus tracks: "Head Over Heels" and "Love Child."]

Any true metal head would have this in his arsenal.

Udo and company kick some tail on this album. It has always been one of my favorite albums. These guys keep and simple and to the point ... and loud.

Must have in any Metal arsenal!!!

Just the title track alone "Balls To The Wall" is worth the price of the whole album. Udo's vocals are absolutely King!!! Pure metal from Germany that gets a 10 out of 10 in my book. Buy it and turn it up!

Absolute Masterpiece!

As my nickname states, I am an 80's metalhead. This is one of those albums which if I had to pick only 10 CDs that I could listen to the rest of my life, this would be one of them. The guitar work on it, although not overly complicated, is outstanding and grabs you by the doodads from the opening riffs of Balls to the Wall and doesn't let go until it is over. Udo's vocals are a perfect fit with this band and this album. There are a lot of CDs I have that I only like one or two songs on, but this isn't one of them. It is excellent from start to finish. You will not be disappointed by this one, I promise!

Fundado en Alemania en 1971, Accept es alabado como uno de los fundadores del movimiento heavy metal alemán. Liderado por el vocalista Udo Dirkschneider con sus agudas gárgaras y el dios de la guitarra Wolf Hoffmann, Accept adoptó los elementos melódicos de compatriotas como Scorpions y les infundió el amenazador estilo de callejón de AC/DC. Esto llevó a una serie de álbumes en las listas Top 200 del Billboard y la canción de 1983 que se convirtió en el emblema de la banda, “Balls to the Wall". ...
