I was done with hair metal by 1991/1992, so I missed out on some of the "last hurrahs" of the hair metal era, but now I am going back and checking some of them out.

This is what I have acquired digital copies of so far...and my first time hearing them.

Winger "Pull"  1993
Scorpions "Face The Heat"  1993
Poison "Native Tongue"  1991
Cinderella "Still Climbing" 1994
Damn Yankees "Don't Tread"  1992
Def Leppard "Adrenalize"  1992  (heard one song from it back when it came out)



This is what I am looking to acquire still...have never heard these.


Steelheart "Tangled In Reins"  1992
Slaughter "The Wild Life"  1992
Warrant "Dog Eat Dog"  1992
Europe "Prisoners In Paradise"  1991
Badlands "Voodoo Highway"  1991


So far, on a quick listen..Pull, Face The Heat, Don't Tread On Me and Still Climbing are actually pretty good...while Native Tongue sucks.

Any recommendations?

Pull is Winger's best album. Staybrite listed some good ones, and I'd add Slave to the Grind by Skid Row if you haven't really heard it. Also, Dokken's Erase the Slate is a good album with Reb Beach on guitar.

I have had Slave To The Grind before...and I still have mp3 of 2 songs from it (Monkey Business and Slave To The Grind). Those are my 2 favorite Skid Row tunes Smile

I will have to check out the Dokken album...I stopped after Beast From The East. 

Thanks

I have the Mr Big album. Not a fan of Tesla, Bonham or Little Caesar. Never heard of The Storm, FM, or Banshee. Have heard OF but never heard their music for Giant and Hardline (well, one Hardline song I have).

Remaining on the list that piques my curiosity....

Babylon A.D. - Nothing Sacred - Loved their S/T album..one of my favs. Knew about this one, but never heard it.

Firehouse - Hold Your Fire - Same as above...Love the S/T album..a fav of mine. Knew about this one, but never heard it.

Lynch Mob - Lynch Mob - Never even knew about this one, loved Wicked Sensation

Def Leppard - Retroactive - I heard spatterings of this the other day for the first time, it didn't interest me. Initial thought was too commerical. But on your advice I will give it a go.

Every Mother's Nightmare - Wake Up Screaming - Liked one song off their debut, but I'll give it a whirl

Dokken - Dysfunctional - Love Dokken..will look for it.


Thanks for the list!!!

Nice thread! I remember this time well. I was a student at UT in Knoxville and I never gave up on hair metal. Pearl Jam and Soundgarden were new bands and I liked all of those guys but it was just different. And I was a bit oblivious that the times were a changin'. 

I bought Slaughter's The Wild Life when it was new and I liked it better than the first album. it has some good songs, I haven't heard it in a long time but I went back and listened to some of the tracks and find it still to be pretty good:



It was also around this time I went back and picked up VVI cassettes CHEAP (probably a buck at the used record store, people were unloading their hair metal at this time) and I enjoyed those as well with Mark and Dana in that band. 

Cinderella's Still Climbing is also excellent and I thought it was a big improvement over Heartbreak Station. I had Def Lef Adrenalize but it was pretty boring and the same ole same ole from them. 

Never picked up Winger Pull but heard it from another buddy who refused to give up on hair metal. 

I think I finally noticed the change with Motley's album with Corabi. I still like that album too but it was way different and a sign of the times. 

And I think Warrant's Dog Eat Dog was their best album.

After these releases it seems most of the hair metal bands got booted from their record labels and went on to smaller labels and were trying to search for a new sound. 

They were putting out stuff like this and it just didn't work:



What was Warrant trying here? Alice In Chains?



Even Iron Maiden went to a smaller label at the time and I think all of the stuff on CMC International Records suffered from production. The hair bands lost their identity and were trying to sound new and it didn't work (Kiss, Def Leppard and Ratt are some others). 

The mid 90's were a pretty bland time for me musically. There was nothing new that interested me at all and it was a realization that I was getting older. It was also around the time I got back into old school classic rock because that was tried and true.

Yeah, those two tracks don't get me anxious to hear more..hahahaha

As for The Wild Life and Dog Eat Dog, I have heard good things about them from almost everyone..so anxious to give them a spin.

On initial listening, I agree that Still Climbing is an improvement over Heartbreak Station.

As for Crue, I hated that album with a passion (I used to own it) but I did LOVE the one track "Hooligan's Holiday". I haven't really listened to much of the Crue's later stuff once Vince came back. Though I did have The Saints of Los Angeles for a while and really liked the title track. I was thinking of giving Generation Swine a try too

Listening to Scorpions "Face The Heat" at work today.

I actually think I may like this better overall than the two before it (Crazy World and Savage Amusement), but it doesn't have any individual tracks that stand out like Rhythm of Love or Tease Me, Please Me

Face the Heat is good and I think the Scorps had the advantage of being popular before hair metal even though they got lumped in that mix. This song and Ship of Fools stand out to me.

Agreed, but they also drastically changed their sound in the 80's, just like Whitesnake did. Neither band started as hair metal, but they wound up being hair metal..lol

Heck, even KISS changed their sound to become more "hair metal" 

And yes, Ship of Fools is also excellent. I still don't think they are as good as Rhythm of Love or TMPM, but they are excellent songs

Any recommendations?
Check out Badlands “Voodoo Highway”...it was one of my favorite cd’s when it came out...it really stood out from others at the time for me. By the way, this is a very cool topic...it’s making me go back to listen to all these long forgotten gems.

BTW...I just this week found out why the Badlands cds are so expensive.

It turns out the singer, Ray Gillen, was sleeping around with women even though he had AIDS, and never warned them. So I guess there are a lot of lawsuits from the women and the studios just washed their hands of it. Which is presumably why they don't bother reissuing them.

Here is some stuff on Ray Gillen

"So why, as a fan favorite and cult status album put out of print? Wouldn’t a label like Rock Candy or Music for Nations be interested? Why are prices on the used market such as Amazon or eBay sky high?
It’s all because of the reprehensible behavior of singer Ray Gillen. Ray, it seems, at one point, got into some heavy-duty drugs, which is not an aberration for a rock star in the 1980s. (Or any other decade, it seems.) But luck wasn’t on his side, and he contracted HIV, most likely from an unclean needle. Again, not altogether uncommon; CCR’s Tom Fogerty contracted HIV via a tainted blood transfusion in the Bay area, mid-1980s, during back surgery.
But – Gillen, knowing he was infected, knowingly slept with multiple woman, passing the virus along and ruining the lives of those women and their families. Although details are sketchy about the number of women involved, the end result was that Atlantic discontinued production of both Badlands albums and locked up the master tapes. Although this was normal practice for a slow-selling catalog album, the band always maintained a solid fanbase and there were always requests for a reissue. Although some indy labels expressed interest, due to lawsuits brought by the infected women have forever prevented the album from being reissued."

I had Slaughter "Fear No Evil" for a short time. I thought the cover looked amateurish and almost hesitated to get it. The music was OK but the production was pretty bad. 

Even Night Ranger struggled in the mid 90's and released an album without Jack Blades on vocals.




Gary Moon was their vocalist from 1991-1996 and they released one album with him on vocals.

(Or any other decade, it seems.) But luck wasn’t on his side, and he contracted HIV, most likely from an unclean needle. Again, not altogether uncommon; CCR’s Tom Fogerty contracted HIV via a tainted blood transfusion in the Bay area, mid-1980s, during back surgery.
But – Gillen, knowing he was infected, knowingly slept with multiple woman, passing the virus along and ruining the lives of those women and their families. Although details are sketchy about the number of women involved, the end result was that Atlantic discontinued production of both Badlands albums and locked up the master tapes. Although this was normal practice for a slow-selling catalog album, the band always maintained a solid fanbase and there were always requests for a reissue. Although some indy labels expressed interest, due to lawsuits brought by the infected women have forever prevented the album from being reissued."

So the rest of the band gets screwed over because none of the music they made with the band will ever get rereleased.  Maybe they should take Ray's portion of the proceeds for any album/cd sales and put it towards a good cause related to AIDS relief/research instead of holding the fans and the rest of the band members hostage because of the actions of one person.
Just a thought.

I'll add my voice to the chorus praising Cinderella's Still Climbing and Warrant's Dog Eat Dog. That Cinderella album is awesome. It's easily my 2nd favorite and depending on the day, it might be my favorite Cinderella album. As for the Warrant album, Dog Eat Dog is easily my favorite Warrant record.

Sorry to hear you didnt like Native Tongue, I found it to be a solid album with lots of catchy tunes and excellent songwriting. It took some getting used to the bluesy style but Kotzen fit the band well (if he hadnt had an affair with Rikki's fiance there's a chance he could have stayed in the band).

Finally listened to Tora Tora "Wild America" and Badlands "Voodoo Highway" today. Both are incredible albums.

"Voodoo Highway" also has a great cover.

I find many 80s arena hard rock and metal bands released great albums in the early 90s and it is on par or better than their music released in the 80s:

Cinderella: Still Climbing
Def Leppard: Adrenalize and Retroactive
Motley Crue: Motley Crue
Metallica: Black album

to name a few and of course Dream Theater and Impellitteri grew their fan bast throughout the 90s and released some great albums.

Used to have the first Junkyard album with "Hollywood" on it. Never heard anything else by them. Was their follow-up good?

I know back in the day, I liked the first Bullet Boys album, but the second (Freakshow, I think?) was horrible.

It's been a looooong time since i heard them, but didn't the lead singer's voice sound a little like Vince Neil?

Speaking of Vince Neil, his 1992/1993 solo album, Exposed, fits into this conversation.

There are two versions of "You're Invited". There is the album version and then a soundtrack version (I can't remember the soundtrack). The soundtrack version features Tommy Shaw and jack Blades and is the better of the two.

If you end up liking Junkyard's "Sixes, Sevens & Nines"  You can check out their later work. They have a few indie releases called "Joker" and "XXX" (that may or may not be on Spotify) and they recently put out a recent album titled "High Water" (in 2017).

I'd add "Saints 'N Sinners" self titled album to the list from 1992.

While not a band from the 80s the sound definitely was. The singer was from the band Sword who Mustaine has said was one of his favorites and Bon Jovi helped produce the album. The were just 4 to 5 years too late.

He was an amazing guitarist.  I remember having the Blue Murder debut back in the day.  While the playing was awesome, the songs were just not very memorable.  Like a lot of great players, it seemed like John could make any song sound good, but he didn't know how to write a great song in my opinion.
