5.0 out of 5 stars I don't regret watching Coyote Ugly, 12 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Hysteria (Audio CD)
It was a tuesday night and my housemates and I couldn't decide what to watch on TV, either Coyote Ugly or The Rock, ultimatley it came down to a flip of the coin and we chose the former. In between the female feelgood factor and soppy sotryline was a song that seemed to play through most of the dancing scenes. I asked my friends what it was and they responded "Pour Some Sugar on Me, by Def Leppard". I was intrigued, it was catchy and mostly important ROCKING!.
For a fortnight I struggled to get the tune out of my head, so finnaly I bought Hysteria, you will not be dissapointed if you. This album is probably the bands finest work with almost every track being catchy and memorable. If you enjoy the soft rock of Boston and Journey or the Glam Metal of Poison and Warrant then this album is perfect for your tastes, and even if you dont you will no doubt find it pleasing. If worse comes to worse you can be assured that if you stick it on at a party you will have everyone singing by track 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Motley Magnum Opus, 11 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Dr. Feelgood (Audio CD)
It is easy in these post grunge days to dismiss the juggernaut that was Glam Metal as nothing more than a monotonous commercial slurry, produced in massed numbers and ultimatley eclipsed by the dreadnought that was Nirvana. Opinions are fickle things, true, but facts are granite strong. In plain facts this is the pinacle of Motley Crues heroin induced, prostitute nourished hedonistic glory. What Appetite for Destruction is to Guns and Roses so Dr. Feelgood is to Motley Crue. Almost every other track is a bombastic rock anthem filled with screeching solos, thunderous drum beats and Glam vocals.
Do not buy this album if you are the typical stoic minded fool. Do buy this album if you like to look on the brighter side of life and appreciate music for the fact the message it gave out could in no way help the world but rather simply encourage more of us to have a good time, all the time. A superb album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poison + Bon Jovi + Mid Western Agriculture = Cinderella, 18 July 2005
I am a great lover of the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal that seamed to sprout effortlessly from the Liberal cities of the US and the Middle Class Suburba of the UK during the late 1970s and the remainder of the 1980s. I bought this album on the logic that I bought Van Halens album Best of Both Worlds on the logic that, like Van Halen this band had been discovered and nurtured by a favourite band of mine already (in Cinderella's case it was Bon Jovi in the case of Van Halen it was KISS). This band are effectively what would have happened if Aerosmith had emerged from the Mid Western farming States of the USA. That is not to say that their music is dire and would make babies cry simply by listening to it (although because of the fact it is Heavy Metal it would probably make them cry cos its so loud) CInderellas music sounds too much like a bad amalgamation of Blues, Rock and John Dear Tractors. If you enjoy the vocals of Aerosmith and belong to the Countryside alliance this will go down swimmingly, if not then consider wisely before purchasing. A band with a lot of talent just the way they showed their talent was not as good as could have been.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do not purchase if you enjoy sensitive hearing!, 4 July 2005
Bless Sweden, it has given us so many things, IKEA, Volvo, Pine Trees, Meatballs, Vikings... well bless Sweden anyway. This album represents the achievements of Swedens greatest men (speaking in terms of Rock). From the Final Countdown to Dreamer this album is filled with electric gems of music. If you prefer your guitar riffs to be normal and your vocals down to earth then go and buy some Eric Clapton. If you like grandios vocals and loud guitar riffs verging on the edge of synthesiser-like, then Europe are perfect for you. Believe me youll be performing air guitar for months. I would reccomend this album for anyone who like Hair Metal and Glam Rock, if you like the music of KISS, Bon Jovi, Van Halen or Poison then you will like this, alot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Aerosmith and Rolling Stones eat your heart out, 7 Mar. 2005
I first bought this album as a present for my dad about five years ago, I'd heard of Queen beforeheand and knew they were okay. How naive i was! The current generation should be ashamed of itself when it comes to musical taste, in their day Queen were and still are legendary with such songs as We Are the Champions this album is superb. Had this album simply been Bohemian Rhapsody and about 10 other songs it would have been good but with so many culture classics this is a must have for anyone who likes Queen or thinks that th eolder generations know nothing about good music. Many times I ahve argues with people about who the greatest rock band is, and to this day i stand by Queen, bless you Freddie!
