Arcade - self-titled (One Way)

"I'm sure there are plenty of you out there that fully supported Ratt in their heyday,like myself.Vocalist Stephen Pearcy formed this 'new' band Arcade(was originally supposed to be Taboo).Arcade has twelve rockin' tracks that shouldn't let too many down.Liked about every tune here,including the slamming "Dancing With The Angels",the disc's single "Nothing To Lose","Screaming SOS","Messed Up World" and "Living Dangerously".Great material here.You know,if Ratt had made a record like this rather than their cop out of an lp 'Detonator',the group just might've lasted longer.Oh,well."

"Stephen Pearcy is hands down the the best sleaze rock singer/ showman of that wonderful 80's era as well as today. Listen to this album and in the next second or 2, you'll be in your car with every window down and your stereo cranked up to the max, reliving the period of time, when your fist did the talking and "Let there be Metal" were the words you lived by! Pearcy, plain & simple rocks!!!! And we're talking "METAL" my friends! This album does righteous justice to the moniker! "All shook up" should be played over and over again in the workplace, it rocks so hard! The wonderfully delightful SEXY egotist, who has been likend to that that of a slick black cat, truly deserves the iconic title of "Scream King" -- move over Vince Neil & Axl Rose, let Stephen Pearcy show you how it's done! Incredible!"

"Back in the early 90's, Stephen Pearcy left RATT to form a new band (with Cinderella drummer Fred Coury) ARCADE, in the 2 albums released by Arcade(93' s/t and 94'"A2") it was obviouse that this was an incredable band that should have been just as big as RATT ever was. Unfortunatly times and musical tastes where changing and ARCADE never got the push they deserved.
Now with the re-release of their 93' self titled album comes the chance to re-discover a Band that had it all but just never exploded on the scean as they should have.
From the opening of "Dancin'with the Angels" to the final song, a deep Pearcy epic titled "Mother of Blues", the band takes you on a Rock'n'Roll rollercoaster of everything that ruled about rock in the 80's early 90's. Afew other standout tracks include the semi hit "Nothin'to Lose", "Messed up World", "All Shook Up", and "Calm Before the Storm" (Which was originally going to be the title of the Album).
Great songwriting, great production, great attitude, after listening to this album you'll wish this band was still around. I also highly recommend their 2nd disc, the much more aggressive "A2"."
