German metal act Accept no longer has steel-throated screamer Udo Dirkschnieder in its lineup, but the group still combines the best elements of AC/DC and ’70s bands like Rainbow to come up with a platter-full of catchy, melodic rock.
New vocalist David Reece does a creditable job in the lung department on rave-ups like “X-T-C” and teen anthems such as “Stand 4 What U.R.”
Mainstay guitarist Wolf Hoffman handles all the hot licks on the hard-rockin’ disc, handily produced by Scorpions knob-twiddler Dieter Dierks.
