    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Side A:

    1. KEEL - Speed Demon
    Good song from back when Ron still had some real metal in him. Pretty much the same as the Lay Down The Law version, except for about 30 more seconds of guitar soloing at the end.
    2. SCANNER - Dark Sun
    Excellent melodic power metal.
    3. ST. MICHAEL - The Beauty, The Power
    Killer song with a catchy chorus made even better by the classy Halford-esque vocals of Jeff Martin (SURGICAL STEEL, RACER X).
    4. VICIOUS RUMORS - One Way Ticket
    Decent metal but with too many American hard rock-isms, particularly in the chorus.
    5. WILD DOGS - Burning Rain
    Straightforward but enjoyable NWOAHM.

    Side B:

    1. TKO - End Of The Line
    Hard rock/heavy metal that is both sleazy and thrashy. Appears to be the same as the album version but with a shorter intro.
    2. SHAWN LANE - Stratosphere II (Guitar Solo)
    Formerly a touring guitarist with BLACK OAK ARKANSAS, this was his first released recording (so why is it called Stratosphere II?)
    3. AGGRESSOR - Predator
    The singer is like a higher pitched Nasty Ronnie, and overall this sounds like a reject from an early Metal Massacre LP.
    4. GUILT - Down To The City
    L.A. metal, a bit like very early RATT. Guitarist Danny Gill later joined HERICANE ALICE and on vocals we find none other than Chuck Billy, later in TESTAMENT.
    5. RAMOS - FRIGO FIRING SQUAD - Death By Guitar
    Guitar-centered instrumental with a distorted voice-over. Josh Ramos and Derek Frigo both played guitar in LeMans.
