CD Reviews

The pedestrian reviewer knows no rock!

"Vices is a unique sounding, hard rocking release. Actually, this album depicts 'sleaze' hard rock at it's best, totally unadulterated, natural and more honest than later poser bands proclaiming to be 'sleazy'. Waysted were truly pioneers in the genre and they certainly lived a sleazy/wild rock'and'roll life-style. Nobody sang his guts out with such ferocity as Fin did back in those days. As usual, Pete Way's solid and colorful bass playing is among the best in rock. Recently snatched from MSG, ex-UFO guitarist/keyboardist Paul Raymond is hard to notice in Vices, though. Drummer Frank Noon (ex-Def Leppard) also does a great job. The big surprise here is the astonishing and original guitar playing of Ronnie Kayfield, a complete uknown entity then who very sadly went to oblivion after Vices. Kayfield reappeared in the late '80s with "Ron E. Kayfield's Saints & Sinners", but the production sound was meagre. At any rate, Kayfield's solos are inmortalized in Vices. Not for the pedestrian type of listener, Vices is for true hard rockers... and it ranks very high within my 2000+ CD collection.

(Check out the "Love Loaded" video from youtube... if it doesn't rock your socks off, then you are dead!)"
Love loaded?

"This is one of the great early 80's metal albums that few heard. The album features the excellent gritty work of Ronnie Kayfield on guitar who brings to life songs "Love Loaded", "Night of the Wolf" and "Women in Chains". The album is heavier than the usual UFO fare but retains sufficient melodic backdrops to Fin's (vocalist) screams. This is an epic hybrid album that moved the melodic metal sound pioneered by UFO (then stolen and trashed by Def Leppard) in a gutsier direction. Many Waysted fans prefer the Paul Chapman work (who I acknowledge did some of the best UFO work and had some good chops on the later Waysted albums) but this album is one of those hard to find gems from an era that many only recall for bad hair, parachute pants and awful music. But those early 80's metal pioneers may remember this. What happened to Ronnie Kayfield? You were great, man."
