V-rock till ya drop!
on 4 April 2003
Ok, this album, is good, but not totally serious. It has a tracklist of some very good (some a little cheesey for my tastes) 80's rock and metal.
Not serious I hear you ask? "Ok lets hit the phones...real hard with our heads" and "...or I'll shove that sissy soft rock so far down your throat you'll be crapping hair bands till christmas!" see what I mean? It's like a real radio station, though much funnier. And for those of you saying well DUH not everyone reading these reviews is going to know about the context this album is, so :p
Good list of tracks, favourites are "Bark at the moon" and "Cum on feel the noise". I'm not sure, both sound like they could possibly have Rhoads playing, but I've also heard things to the contrary...amazing guitarist, I'd have put a Rhoads track on the ozzy or quiet riot slot.
Also lacking from the 80's metal/rock thing are Metallica(godfathers of thrash), and Guns & Roses or AC/DC. Back in black, woulda gone down a treat. Then again I'm not sure when in the 80's this is set, and I'm not great with album release dates and when they were made etc....who cares?
But hey, for those of you who wanna pretend you have long hair and still wear spandex jumpsuits (If you can't wear a spandex jumpsuit what CAN ya do?) and run around your living room while nobody else is in playing airguitar, this is the ticket.
By the way in the actual game, bark at the moon is THE track to drive fast to.
Good album provided you'll appreciate the tongue in cheek DJ scripts (I know I did). Doesn't stand out much, and I wouldn't buy it, but only cos I have most of the tracks, and the game. So it'd be somewhat redundant for moi.
