Accept's seventh studio album Russian Roulette is the last one to feature Udo Dirkschneider as a lead vocalist until his return in 1992. It was their way back to the heavier and darker sound which wasn't present on their previous album Metal Heart. The final album of Accept's golden years features some first-class bangers and some of their more infectious pop-metal. They recorded a few of their more catchy songs, even if the lyrical content is much darker compared to earlier recordings. The riffs fit very well in the context of the songs and fans of heavy and power metal should definitely listen to this album.
