This is a good album, but Detonation is better. I like all the songs on this album.

One of their more mellow albums. It's good and it's also one of the very first Christian metal albums I ever bought back in 1988.

I know I am, most likely, in the minority on this, but "Rock In A Hard Place" is my most favorite Bloodgood album. The band seems to have taken a decided turn to more melodic hard rock, and I think they pulled it off very well! A fine effort. 9/10

An excellent album, very melodic. Shakin' It and Seven my favorites.

A very melodic album, a little bit different than their two first albums. This is an excellent album, all the songs are great.

Hmm, Bloodgood starts mellowing out and playing more Hard Rock. Still, good music, like "She's Gone," "What Have I Done?," and "Seven." This is more commercial and AOR than previous work and, hence, troubling: Is Bloodgood on the verge of selling out their metal roots? I like this--but, not as much as S/T or Detonation. The lyrics are intelligent and the singing's capable. They still retain a unique sound that I haven't heard from Christian or secular bands.

This is one of my least favorites. This is Bloodgood going glam sounding. Very,Very Commercial. But there were still a couple of good songs.
