Comments: The original sessions for this album were done with Beau Hill producing and Chris Caffery joining to do some guitar work. Apparently, the band sacked Mr. Hill and went with Jon Janson to provide a 'harder edge' and by that time, Chris was back in Savatage.

If anyone has a copy of or heard the original sessions, please email me. I'd like to know how much different these were and was the track listing any different?

-- update from Mr. Barnett himself: "HUGE difference from what we put out with Jon Janson. Beau is great at what he does, but he tried to make Dirty Looks sound like something it wasn't. Way too polished, with these incredible backing vocals that we would've had to sample live and that wasn't ever going to happen"

Videos were made for 'Nobody Rides For Free' and 'Go Away'. 'Nobody rides' being their biggest video, staying in MTV's Hard 30 countdown for quite awhile.

Made it to 118 on the Billboard album charts.
