CD Reviews

One of the most overlooked bands of all-time

"I first heard about Davy Vain from the band Death Angel. He produced their incredible "Frolic through the Park" album, and after a show in Cincinnati, DA guitarist Rob Cavestany told me that I would be floored when "No Respect" hit the streets. He wasn't kidding.

To call Vain "glam" really doesn't do them justice. From a strict musical standpoint, they were far more talented and diverse than most of the metal bands who were around in the late 1980s. They weren't gimmicky, which probably contributed to their lack of record sales. If they had simplified it a bit, like maybe Warrant or Britny Fox for example, they probably would have sold millions of records. They were too good for their own good. And their live show was outstanding, too.

The only negative thing about "No Respect" is the occasionally cheesy lyrics. To this day, I can't listen to the chorus of "Aces" without laughing.

I still have an original copy of this on CD (vinyl, too), and I listen to it at least every couple of weeks. It has definitely stood the test of time."
Excellent historical record

"The best "sleaze rock" album ever recorded in my opinion. When it came out, though, I used to always wonder how long it took these guys to get dressed and made up and if they slept (or passed out) with their makeup and jewelry on."
An all-time rock classic worth six stars

""No Respect" is a brilliant rock album that will knock you over. The lyrics are straight from life. Davy Vain's vocals are pure and commanding, carrying easily across a big hall. Band play is disciplined and solid with impeccable tempo. The guitars are more than adequate, with exceptionally good rhythm guitar support. For those who like it heavier than Led Zeppelin, this is it. Hard to get, this album is bound to become a cherished collector's item: Rather than sell used, we, Vain fans, will keep playing it..."
