So, anybody heard this ? A not-very-famous project of Rolf Kasparek and Peter Jordan from German's old band, Running Wild. If you're into heavy metal, you should be familiar with this band, but GIANT X isn't totally heavy metal, actually they combine it with melodic hard rock, making this album accessible and enjoyable, probably with couple of average fillers.

 

Check out several of their songs which I think are pretty good

Now I still can't find 'Let's Dance' which I think is the best track here and tend to avoid 'Badland Blues' and 'Friendly Fire' which are average. 'R.O.C.K' is also a fun track, and 'The Count' and 'Rough Ride' are also great tracks. The production is fine, and perhaps the vocal is a little too gritty for those who's not familiar with RW. But all in all, a pretty satisfying album, and based on first spin, I gave this one 76%

I wasn't going to bother with this one, but based on your recommendation I'll at least give it a go and report back.
