Accept - 1981 - Breaker

Post by The ripper on Mon 28 Sep - 6:16












Released 16 march 1981

Accept followed up their rather restrained sophomore LP, I’m A Rebel (1980), with this much weightier effort.  
Evidently, Accept were angry with their record label’s meddling on the I’m A Rebel recording and decided to make a statement Breaker.  
Indeed, these German meisters o’ metal were full of piss and vinegar, and in the process appeared to have found their sonic identity,
no longer content in being cast as a poor man’s AC/DC.
Breaker is the beginning of Accept’s ascent into near-godly status (an ascent that apexed with 1983’s Balls to The Wall in my opinion).  
Their defiance is embodied by the profanity-laced Son Of A Bitch, a middle finger to their record label and a rousing blast of sonic fury.  
The only stinker on the album is the ballad Breaking Up Again, sung by bassist Peter Baltes (Udo Derkschneider sings lead on all the other tracks).  
Baltes’ ordinary (boring) voice stands out like a fart in church next to Udo’s patented werewolf howling.
