I have been listening to this album for 15 1/2 years since it came out in '89 and have had to make do with my crackly vinyl copy as CD copies of this were like gold dust.
This is such a dark, sleazey album and compared to what sold in '89, especially in states where these things matter - Poison, Winger etc it is easy to see why this did not do so well. This is not an album of party anthems. This is an adult exploration of love, life and relationships (often in it's more seedy forms) compared to the more adolescent sexual innuendoes and party rock of Warrant and their ilk. Also unlike many of their peers this is an album about sex rather than sexist party songs.
I think the production is superb and the guitar is peerless in 80's sleaze rock. I think that unlike many of it's contemporaries this album stands up well to the passage of years as it is not so obviously of it's time. In fact the only complaint I ever had was that this album had a terrible cover.
This is in my top five albums of all time.

I bought my original Island Records CD back in 1989, and it's currently the most played CD in my car's autochanger.

20 years later, it's songs are STRONG, not one single filler here, they all rip. The vocals and all the production are spot on. Davy Vain was the unluckiest guy alive not to sell 20 million copies with this record. No thanks to Island Records giving up on it after six months, but Davy Vain is still writing music whilst island's A & R guy I'm guessing will be divorced trying to feed his ex wife, 2.2 kids, 0.3 of a dog, and 0.2 of a cat.

Highlights if I'm forced to choose some are Secrets, Beat the Bullet and the title track, No Respect. Can't really think of a stronger record to come out at the time. . . . .

Enjoy, 'cos its wondeful.

This is the most amazing piece of glam rock you will ever hear and is an absolute must buy for all glamsters! Davey Vain's voice is so sultry you can almost hear him pouting.
From the pop like catchiness of 'Watching You' to the sleezy grinding guitars of '1000 degrees' there is not a bad song on this glitter encrusted jewel of glam. Buy it & love it!!

What an album! I can't believe I've waited so long to obtain it on CD after first hearing the album in late 80's.
From the opening salvo of Secrets and Beat The Bullet to the closing duo of Without You(which is sentimental but DEFINATELY rocks!) and Ready, this album hits the mark literally!
I would urge any self respecting Hard Rock freak to go and get this album!
I may have to purchase another copy as I've nearly worn mine out from playing it so much

First released in 1989 on Island records No Respect was the long awaited album from San Francisco`s Vain. The band had been around for a few years, plugging themselves with several Demo`s and many sold out gigs around the bay area. Really this album was a little late, if it had been released a couple of years before it would have sold millions on the tidal wave that was 80`s hair metal, however as we know grunge came along in 1990 and killed the real rock scene, but hey Kurt Cobain is gone and this CD is back! so bottom line is if you missed it first time buy this NOW. just for the record Kerrang voted it in the top twenty albums of 89 and in the top five glam albums ever this year.

I only recently discovered Vain.I saw a picture of this album sleeve in a book on heavy metal album covers,in the hair metal section!I thought I'll check them out on u tube.Singer Davey Vain has a great distinctive voice which gives them a sound like no other and the band is firing on all cylinders but can also slow down and turn on the atmosphere as well.It's great,a rockin sleaze metal classic,nice hair too.

Finally someone has had the good taste to rerelease this CD. Recently prices have soared in online auctions for the original CD release, so it is good to be able to pick up a copy without being held to ransom. Really, this album is that good. Vain were pidgeon-holed with the L.A. glam rock explosion of the late 80`s, although the band were from San Fransisco and dealt up a far tougher brand of music. There was no bubblegum pop rock for these boys. This really was the shadier side of glam metal. Unfortunately this album arrived too late (1989) to be massively successful like Guns n Roses, Motley Crue or Poison and the band fell through the cracks.
The album kicks off with "Secrets", which is like a bomb going off. There are no big production gimmicks here, only big guitars, big choruses, some dark subject matter and a moody atmosphere topped off by Davy Vain`s unique vocal style. There is no let up in quality as the album continues: "Beat the bullet" (I still remember seeing the promo video on "The power hour"), "Who`s watching you", "Aces", "Down for the third time" and my own personal favourite "Icy" should all be massive classics of the era, rather than the cult phenomenon this album became. It is a real disappointment that it never caught the imagination of the public. If there is one gripe with the sound then perhaps the drums should be less echoey and the bass turned up a bit, apart from that this is a flawless piece of work.
Vain did release another couple of albums but they didn`t really match the down and dirty streetwise feel of "No respect". It is an injuctice when you think of how many poor bands came out of the same genre (Slaughter, Poison, Trixter etc) and went on to sell millions. At least now we can all enjoy this without having to outbid each other for it. All we need now is for someone to reissue Tigertailz "Bezerk" on CD and we`ll all die happy.
