The somewhat less flashy companion of the debut record, in that there is less of a focus on Eddie being the guitar hero. But interestingly enough, the group scored a hit single with the hooky pop of “Dance the Night Away”, and you can just imagine the bikini babes in sunglasses strutting around to party-made tracks like “Beautiful Girls” and “Women in Love…”, not to mention the extra-sleazy cover version of “You’re No Good”. But it’s the mid-section of the album, where the band shows off their mean and ornery side, which is the big calling card. “Bottoms Up”, “Light Up the Sky”, and the back-yard magic of “D.O.A.” – a howling melting pot of metal, punk, and sheer unadulterated attitude.
