CD Reviews

Great forgotten CD
Jason Hardy | Nova Scotia, Canada | 03/18/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I remember picking up this cd back in 1995, used for 5 dollars I believe and being blown away by how great it was. I knew Bob Rock was on it so I figured it had to be at least decent so took a chance on it. The original first single 'Bed of Roses' didn't do this album any justice. I remember seeing the video in the early 90s and saying so what... Warchild, House of Cards and Babywild are amazing songs and reason enough to check this album out. The song writing and musicianship are outstanding in most cases. There's a few cheesy tunes but overall it's very solid. If you're into the good hard rock from the late 80s(Van Halen, Alice Cooper, Badlands...) and early 90s I would check this out."

Another solid melodic rock album from the pre-grunge 90's
Justin Gaines | Northern Virginia | 03/08/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Bob Rock is best known for his role producing bands such as Bon Jovi, the Cult, and Metallica, but in 1992 he started up his own band Rockhead, producing, writing, and playing guitar on this self-titled debut album.

Rockhead is your typical early 90's pre-grunge hard rock album. It's a straightforward melodic rock album with a slight blues flavor and arena rock production. It's not quite as polished as say Bon Jovi or Mr. Big, but not as sleazy as Junkyard or L.A. Guns either. Split the difference and you'll come close to Rockhead's (and more than a few other 1992 bands') sound. Rock provides some very solid guitar work to the album, but for my money is overshadowed by vocalist Steve Jack. Richie Sambora and Billy Duffy make guest appearances.

This is a perfectly decent, but not particularly memorable rock album. If you love the commercial rock sound of the late 80's and early 90's, you'll probably enjoy Rockhead.
