Just like being 17 again, who could resist?
on 12 May 2010
I didn't pay too much attention to "hair metal" or WASP back in the 80's but I wholly agree with the other comments that Blackie's longevity is testament to the band's quality. I moved heaven and earth to see them last November (2009)and was greatly affected by their out and out performance in Dudley. In short I felt like I was 17 again (I'm 47) as the years just rolled away. I was quite surprised at just how many hits they had and had to have a CD. I duly bought the Best of the Best and it has really grown on me.
Although I had only previously heard the hits, I tend to like most of the tracks and like their outre lyrics and behaviour.
This isn't Mozart but it's no less great because of that. I have disc one in the car (company Volvo don't you know) and nothing de-stresses me like a good rock album on my way home. This fits the bill nicely.
Favourite track this week? Ballcrusher...Blackie showing his delicate side on this Valentine's lament...NOT. A great laugh and not taken too seriously. Would definitely travel to see them again and will look forward to this.
Nice packaging on the CD. Reminded me a bit of Bad News, now there was a band.
Have fun and keep on R.O.C.K.in'
