Great Heavy Metal Disc

"Although this CD isn't quite as good as the first two volumes but it's still worth adding on to your music collection, even if you're a casual 80's metal fan and I wish that those songs would still get to be on the radio airwaves and I think that if they have a music channel for 80's/90's hard rock, they should call it PowerRock.Whitesnake: Still of the Night
This song is a killer classic, one of the best guitar solos in hard rock history and this song is a great way to start off of this CD, I love the outro chorus to this song.Cinderella: Gypsy Road
I think that Cinderella is actually a well talented band cause they do a good job playing bluesy metal.D.A.D.: Sleeping My Day Away
This song only sticks out as just an average metal song and they sound a bit too Def Leppardish (no disrespect or anything) it's just not one of the better songs of this CD.White Lion: Wait
I remember that when I bought this CD, it was the first time that I've heard of this song is years and I'm glad that this song was a Top 10 hit although it deserves more radio airplay than what it gets, Vito Bratta is a really good guitar player and I love the solos on this song.Bang Tango: Someone Like You
One of the more overlooked bands in metal history, although the singer isn't that great but the guitar solos easily make up for it.Fastway: Say What You Will
It's a shame that Fastway didn't achieve the hard earned success that they truly deserved, Fastway was actually a supergroup of former members of Motorhead, UFO and Humble Pie, great guitars and good vocals, one of the best songs.Raging Slab: Don't Dog Me
Again one of the overlooked metal bands, I like the guitar solos and this group reminds me of a combination of Molly Hatchet meets Motorhead and this group should've gotten greater success than what they've gotten.Kingdom Come: Get it On
Never cared too much for this band, sorry. The singer sounds a bit too much like Robert Plant, just never really got into this band that much.Helix: Heavy Metal Love
This song kicks butt and it's a bit kind of unfortunate that they didn't achieve the hard earned success that they deserved and I love the opening to this song, and Helix was one of the heaviest bands ever to come out of Canada.Love/Hate: Rock Queen
Okay to admit it, this song is kind of weird but I like this song alot but my only complaint is that it's way to short (only 2:20) and the choruses are fun to sing along to.Dangerous Toys: Scared
Another classic metal song, but at least that it clocks in at a respectable 4:03 and the guitars are good and I hope to hear it on the radio someday.Bulletboys: Smooth Up in Ya
Not one of my favorites, the singer sounds a bit too much like a cross between of David Lee Roth and Axl Rose but the background vocals are great though.Britny Fox: Girlschool
Probably the most prettiest of the hair bands and when I first seen or heard of this band, I thought that it was going to be a girl metal group but I was wrong and those guys sure look like a bunch of beautiful girls with a bad attitude.Mr. Big: Addicted to That Rush
If you're expecting them to sound like the way they did on 'To Be With You'? Guess Again cause this song is a great free for all jam and it's a great way to end the album.I'm glad that I bought this CD and if they're gonna make Youth Gone Wild: Heavy Metal Hits of the 80's Vol. 5, the songs that I would put on are.............................................Skid Row: Youth Gone Wild
Motley Crue: Dr. Feelgood
Contraband: All the Way From Memphis
Axe: Heat in the Street
Living Colour: Cult of Personality
Iron Maiden: The Trooper
Sound Barrier: Rock Without the Roll
Mama's Boys: If the Kids Are United
Kick Axe: On the Road to Rock
Hear 'N Aid: Stars
Wolfsbane: I Like it Hot
Kix: Blow My Fuse
Keel: Because the Night
Black 'N' Blue: Hold On to 18
Girlschool: Hit 'N' Run
King Kobra: Hunger"

"I couldn't resist being the first person to review this excellent compilation, the best one I have ever heard. This is a great introduction to some of the lesser known bands of the 80's. A great listen from start to finish. This album has led on to many CD purchases from bands featured here. BUY IT. IT ROCKS!"
