"This is a great album, and as one of the other reviewers said it is great that Kevin Dubrow took the time to put out this tribute to the late great Randy Rhoads. Even though his playing is nothing compared to his later works with Ozzy, and the lyrics are kind of cheesy, and the overall sound of the band is pop metal doesn't mean that it's not good. To be totally honest even if Randy Rhoads wasn't on this album i'd still be inot it. I think that Kevin Dubrow has an amazingly powerful voice and the rhythm section at that time which featured Kelly Garni on bass and Drew Forsyth on drums was very powerful and solid, and Randy's playing was top notch.The album begins with the song Trouble. This song was originally on Quiet Riot 2. The first 2 Quiet Riot albums were only released in Japan. There was also another album that was recorded but never released. Trouble is a great song and probably the best on this compilation. Randy's solo is great as usual. The next song is amazing also. It is a live version of Laughing Gas which features an extended solo from Randy and was recorded at the legendary L.A. club The Starwood. It's also cool because he plays parts in the solo that he used in Ozzy. In the middle of the solo he plays parts from Dee and Goodbye to Romance, and when the band comes back in they play the beginning of Crazy Train. The next song is Afterglow (Of your Love.) It is a great song. It's all acoustic except for the solo. It was originally from Quiet Riot 2 but this is a different version. Killer Girls is an upbeat pop metal song. It's a pretty good song. Again like every other song features amazing guitar work by Randy Rhoads. The next song Picking Up the Pieces is as pop as you're gonna get on this album. It was taken from the album Quiet Riot 3 which was never released. It is definately one of the best songs on this album. It also features Randy Rhoads playing bass after Kelly Garni quit the band. Last Call for Rock and Roll is another unreleased song. It was originally written for QR1 but never made it on the album. Breaking Up is a Heartache is the next song. This song like Picking Up the Pieces was on QR3. It also features Randy on bass. The solo in this song is also great because it is prett much the same solo that Randy used in the rare Ozzy song You Looking at Me Looking at You which was the b-side to the original Crazy Train single. On the next song Force of Habit Randy is playing the riff from Suicide Solution during the verse. The next song It's Not So Funny has an amazing solo. It's great because Randy double tracked it. It sounds amazing. This song is also similar to their post Randy songs. The last song on the album Look In Any Window was written by Randy. It is another amazing song with amazing guitar playing. I hope that one day there will be a Randy Rhoads Years Volume 2 becuase there is still many amazing songs that haven't seen the light of day. I suggest this album to anyone, especially guitar players and pop metal fans. I also reccommend the Ozzy albums Blizzard of Ozz, Diary of a Madman, and Tribute because they feature Randy's amazing guitar playing."
Great compilation of the early Quiet Riot days

"Well there are a good amount of people that don't realize that Randy Rhoads is the man that started Quiet Riot when he was 16. Metal Health was not the first album by this band. This album has some tracks from the first 2 Quiet Riot albums which were only released in Japan. Randy was a great guitarist in the '70s before joining Ozzy. I think the songs on this compilation are better than anything Quiet Riot went on to release throughout the '80s and beyond. Kevin DuBrow's voice is much more solid in these recordings. Songs like "Trouble" and "Killer Girls" were remixed and sound better than the originals. "Last Call For Rock & Roll" was originally "Mama's Angels" from Quiet Riot 1 and was re-made with new lyrics and basically turned into a completely different song that is only available on this album and I must say it's a great tune. If you want to hear some of the earlier works of Randy Rhoads and how Quiet Riot started out, this is a compilation well worth purchasing."
