3.5 stars - Poison meets Junkyard

"Jetboy was another one of those ill-fated hair metal bands that were signed to MCA Records back in the late 80's and not given any real promotion from the label. Jetboy, which featured former Hanoi Rocks bassist Sam Yaffa, played a slightly bluesier version of the Hollywood hair metal that was so popular at the time. Their sound and image were equal parts Poison, Faster Pussycat, and perhaps Junkyard.
The band's 1988 debut album Feel the Shake is a solid, if not terribly original rock & roll album. Instead of trying the slick and polished power ballad route, Jetboy opted for something of a down and dirty barroom rock sound. You hear a bit of Hanoi Rocks here (of course), but it's a bit grittier and has more punch. "Feel the Shake" and "Make Some Noise" are both terrific singles. Unfortunately they're also the album's first two songs, and it loses steam soon afterwards.
It's nothing you haven't heard before, but Feel the Shake is still a fun album that is worth picking up if you're still into the Hollywood hair metal sound."
