"WORST OF HAIRMETAL 1980-1992"
"WORST OF HAIRMETAL 1980-1992" - Worst of? Well... there's no point adding the really "obscure" hairmetal releases. They were (more or less) rubbish in the first place anyhow, thus why the CD's are scarce and people are paying stoopid $$$ for them at eBay. Nope, you won't find the likes of Boycott, Brinx, CCCP, Radioactive Cats, Rock Candy, Steffaine, Tarzen, etc, etc. I'd literally have to add 100's and 100's of them. This is merely crap albums by so-called "semi-famous" and/or the "MTV famous" hairmetal artists of the golden era of 1980 to 1992. This is a work-in-progress project as I'm sure I forgot about plenty of stuff. ATTENTION!: Please keep in mind that I really do like/enjoy/luv many of these acts other releases, or/and many many other acts from this era of hardrock, it's NOT meant to be a slag at the entire genre of "hairmetal".

RETURN: "To The Top" (1987)
Oh dear, Norwegian AOR at its worst. Juvenile lyrics, childish music, AOR 4 Kidz. Their 1992 release "V", turned out to a be a completely different story though. Return's one and only "classic" release in my opinion. Not quite sure how old they were at the time of this release? However, the songs are soo juvenile, darn right childish attempts at melodic hardrock and merely a couple of decent tunes among the turds. Then again, I'm sure we all wrote these kind of tunes at the age of twelve? Do yourself a favour and buy "V" and simply forgetabouthisone.
