"Depending on your own point of view, you're probably checking out the listing for this album for one of two reasons: Earl Slick or David Glen Eisley. Dirty White Boy featured both of those individuals. Slick played guitar for David Bowie, and Eisley was the voice of Giuffria.
Dirty White Boy is a hard rock band. I suppose it's easier to say they were a hair metal band, but you get a bit more from their 1990 debut Bad Reputation than you would from the average Ratt or Faster Pussycat CD. For one thing, there's probably no such thing as an "average" band with David Glen Eisley on vocals (though to be fair I'm still not thrilled with his Stream album). The man has a powerful soulful voice that, when combined with Slick's guitar work, injects a bluesy swagger to DWB's music. This is the kind of music that if you heard it playing at your favorite local bar you'd start nodding your head and thinking "yeah, maybe I will have another round". It's melodic, and there is an obligatory ballad on the album, but for the most part you're getting a full-on, hard rocking party album.
Bad Reputation is not as polished as the Guiffria albums, so don't expect ultra-slick AOR here. If you liked Eisley's solo albums or bands like Thunder, Little Angels, or House of Lords though, you're going to want to add this one to your collection."
