I just picked up Accept's Metal Heart and am really digging it. I've had one other CD, a compilation of Balls to the Wall and another album that I kind of like as well. So what albums should I be looking into picking up next?

NP, for the third time today, Metal Heart.

I dunno. Eat the Heat has the excellent song called Hellhammer but admittedly it does not sound like Accept. You should get the Staying A LIfe cd which is an excellent live compilation of their best tunes.

Wow it seems that Accept has some pretty stong albums then and I'll have to look into buying a few more. Geez just when I thought I was off of buying CDs so much I find another band I like.

"Russian Roulette" is actually my favorite Accept cd, so yeah, definitely get that one! I'd also recommend the live "Staying A Life" too over "The Final Chapter" cuz SAL is recorded at the height of Accept's career with the classic lineup of Udo, Wolf Hoffmann, Peter Baltes, Stefan Kaufman, and Jorge Fischer. TFC was recorded as their career was in a downward spiral with just Udo, Hoffmann and Baltes on all tracks, Kaufman played drums on some songs but newcomer Stefan Schwartzman played drums for severall of the songs. I would also recommend the self-titled debut from 1979 as well as the 1993 reunion album "Objection Overruled". "I'm A Rebel", "Eat The Heat" and "Predator" are all worth getting if you find them in a 99 cent bargin bin, cuz they do all have some good songs on them, but otherwise the casual fan doesn't really need those albums. I agree with a previous post that defended "Death Row", I think it's a solid album, just not typical of Accept's trademark style.
As for UDO's material, "Animal House" is okay IMO, I never really cared for "Timebomb" or "Solid". "Faceless World" and "No Limits" are my personal favorites.

I also have to recommend Objection Overruled, which came after Eat The Heat, so this one is actually Udo's comeback disc after his short hiatus from the band. This disc kicks @$$ from start to finish, except for the second song, I Don't Wanna Be Like You, which is a total ripoff of Balls To The Wall.

In my opinion, their four best ones in order are:

1. Restless and Wild
2. Balls to the Wall
3. Metal Heart
4. Breaker

I realize that you have that comp of Restless and Wild + Balls to the Wall. But, trust me, it's worth going back and getting those CDs separately.

Oh, I almost forgot:

Udo's death grunt on "Son of a Bitch" (off of the "Breaker" album) is the thing metal legends are made of. Classic!
