REVIEW: DIRKSCHNEIDER “LIVE Back To The Roots Accepted”

Former Accept frontman sings the classics from his days in the legendary band

It’s as simple as this, if you’re a fan of Accept or U.D.O. you need this in the library.  Udo and his band crank out an amazing selection of Accept classics that show he’s still got the chops (scroll down for playlist).

Nobody would argue that Accept songs are hard to sing, and he’s been singing like this for decades. I get it that for some Udo has been an acquired taste, but for those who love his work will be happy as hell to have these songs in live version.

I was thrilled to hear songs like “Wrong Is Right”, “Head Over Heals”, “Loser’s And Winner” and other tunes you may not have heard live for quite some time. I really though the song choices were superb, all the singles were hear with a great smattering of songs that became fan favorites over the years.

Production-wise it’s a strong release, it’s a solid live recording with decent levels.  The band is sharp and they play the songs very close to the recorded originals. It’s a great way to catch up with one of the greatest Metal bands in history. Yeah, it would be nice if it was as many of the original guys as possible, but beggars can’t be choosers.  Accept has been doing some great work with their new singer so this is the closest we’ll get I guess.
