On Top: Topless

A quick look at the cover for Topless and the previous releases from Pennsylvania's On Top - Top Heavy and Top To Bottom - would certainly suggest that these three lads were not bottle fed as babies! However in these PC times there's no denying that the covers grab attention, whether it's good or bad will depend on who's looking.

Slam this four track disc in the player however and you can pretty much guarantee that the only glances On Top are likely to receive will be admiring. Admittedly this is a short sharp blast but it still bares mentioning that not once does the quality control slip as a sleazy, yet decidedly metallic slice of hard rock rumbles and roars. Everything from Skid Row to Extreme via Bush era Anthrax and early Iron Maiden rushes past, "282" an attitude soaked snarl, "Lie To Me" a darting riff strewn romp. Add in the more Sunset Strip swaggering "Got Me Runnin'" and the EP highlight "Crazy", where the trade off between metal and rock is balanced to perfection and really, there's not one thing to dislike here.

On Top? There's no doubt about it. Time for another suckle!
