Review: Accept – All or Nothing (Rock)

This review covers the metal track Accept – All or Nothing.

This track was released in 1993 on the album Objection Overruled.

The track starts with a snare. The guitars come in along with a drum kit. Shortly after, the vocals then come in.

From there, the backup vocals then take the track into the main chorus. This is capped off with a brief instrumental section.

The main vocals then take over and lead the track into the next verse. After that, the backup vocals take the track into the main chorus again. From there, a guitar solo then comes in.

After that, the backup vocals take the track into another round of the main chorus. This leads into another guitar solo.

From there, the backup vocals take the track into another round of the main chorus. From there, the backup vocals extend the main chorus and the guitars lead the track out.

One thing I like about this track is that it personifies an uplifting metal track quite well. It has all the rough edges of a metal track, but belts out a positive motivational message. That, I find, to be an interesting mixture at the very least.

Another thing I find interesting about the track is the fact that the backup vocals are carrying out the main chorus whereas the main vocals lead the verses. From everything I’ve heard so far, it’s not exactly a common way of handling a track, but in this case, I find it to be an effective way of differentiating the main chorus and verse. I like the way it is handled here.

Overall, this is a pretty solid track. It’s got an interesting vocal arrangement and the positive messaging buried in the lyrics is interesting. The fact that this messaging is embedded in a track with all the rough edges of a metal track is an interesting concept. So, an overall solid track in my books.

Score
7.5/10
