Yeah, kind of silly if you ask me. All the songs were only recorded for the first time a few years ago and are fine as they are. I admit it's a very good band line-up and I'm kind of curious to hear them, but just as happy to stick with the originals. Maybe one day I'll hear it...

I agree it is a little early for a tribute maybe and for sure the songs are fine as they are...as are most songs that are covered. For me, I want to hear the different styles applied by these bands. For example I'll be interested to see how Peep Show applies their slightly harder, darker side to Breakin' The Chainz.


Not a must have by any means for most people but one I will be interested in.

Yeah, i picked this up.

Some good stuff on here and some avge stuff on here.

All tracks (except 1 from memory) are recorded exactly the same as the originals.

Think it is limited to 250-300.


If they sound like the originals I guess it's not really worth it.



What would have been cool if bigger bands would have covered these songs. I'd love to hear Motley, RATT, Vain, Roxx Gang, Pretty Boy Floyd, LA Guns and other older Sleaze bands do these tunes and hear what they would do. Of course this is only a dream scenario since those bands don't know who Crashdiet is but hey it would be fun.

    • Appreciate the support and enthusiasm for the title. In ALL past releases I've fought hard and at times with the artists and rights holders to release something I as a fan would want to buy - and that includes original artwork, track listings and bonus material etc.. (had some good fights over those).  However, in this case, I fully agree with the guys. Its just not feasible to release and promote something called Sex Crimes in 2023. Politically correct, woke, reality...it just is what it is. The band has felt uneasy over the title for some time now. We will endeavor to make the release as true to the original apart from that title and a fresh take on the artwork. Apologies for the right-wing comments, that's my immediate reaction when I start hearing cancel culture stuff.
    • Yeah, I felt that Auslander was having a go at those who are easily offended, not Andrew.  I think the wombat got the wrong end of the stick.
    • This makes my brain hurt. You literally cannot win in this day and age.    
    • Bringing politics into a post about a band we are all here to celebrate isn't a good look, and that's coming from me, a right winger, because somebody would like a proper real release as in the original artwork and the way we bought it in 86 isn't being a right winger, it's being a good audiophile, I too think it's absurd to finally give this album a proper release after waiting so long for it, then to completely alter it for the sake of what? it's a re-release, that is going to be bought by people who already know what it is, and not some clueless stick figure buying it on a whim, It just kind of feels like a slap in the face, primarily because we all have a semi good idea as to why it's being changed, and that isn't right wing, that's actually left wing these days, so should I not buy it cause its altered? just to make a political point? I mean since you aren't concerned about him being offended? well I guess I could be labeled "others", and I would think you'd be a bit more understanding why someone would be irked over the decision, and it aint because they voted for Trump or Biden, but if me and him don't buy it you'd be losing a sale right? you can say you don't care, but if everybody didn't buy it to make a point, then you'd care, so why play to the people who aren't going to buy it regardless? instead of the people waiting decades for it to be released? that's all he's saying, you don't gotta be an asshole. If you knew him you'd know how horrible calling him a right winger is to him, as I assure you he's not, I feel I gotta say something, I blew it off originally but since the curtain got pulled back I feel the same way he does, but I'm not gonna fight over it, and it is a valid feeling and im sure others possess it, so you can call me all the names you want, talk about my mom, or my ex, you can trash me and my politics, I welcome it, but you really don't gotta bag on somebody for being a little put off over a 1st time release and the only CD release of an album many of us here love, BTW, regardless what you say to me, I'll still buy it, and I still appreciate what your doing even if I disagree with how your doing it, cool bro. now lets here what a fascist i am.
