In many ways, Persian Risk's belated full-length debut, 1986's Rise Up, perfectly embodied the waning spirit of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal: it arrived a good five years after the movement arguably hit its peak; recalled very few of its formative, charmingly brittle qualities with its polished brand of commercial hard rock; and it stood in for a band which, for all intents and purposes, was effectively defunct (or mortally splintered, at least) by the time it arrived in stores. All things considered, however, there were far worse ways for Persian Risk to go out, and, whatever it may have lacked in terms of honest-to-goodness heavy metal thunder (only the double-bass drum driven "Don't Turn Around" and "Rip It Up" qualified as balls-out thrashers), the album certainly compensated with efficient, accessible, if rarely surprising radio-ready anthems.
