Shy's weakest effort
Justin Gaines | Northern Virginia | 07/05/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"It is obvious listening to 1989's Misspent Youth that Shy (called Shy England for the album's US release) was running low on ideas. The band sounds good, and Tony Mills's distinct voice is as strong as ever, but the band seemed to embrace as many hair metal clichés as possible for this album. There's not a song on the album that couldn't have appeared on a Poison or Warrant album. Tony Mills's voice, which is remarkably similar to TNT's Tony Harnell, is the only element on Misspent Youth that really stands out.

That's not to say Misspent Youth is a bad album. It's a solid hard rock/hair metal disc, but the band was/is capable of better. A lot of bands in this genre hit the wall at some point (for most it seemed to happen in 1993). Fortunately Shy rebounded and released better albums since this one.

The track listing is as follows:

1. Give It All You Got
2. Burnin' Up
3. Pub
4. Money
5. Never Trust a Stranger
6. After All the Love Is Gone
7. Broken Heart
8. Shake the Nation
9. When You Need Someone
10. Love on the Line
11. Make My Day
12. Encore"

"excellent band, stop saying that they need a little help with the songwriting, hard rock and glam metal its only having fun, is not that serious as other types of metal, the voice is awesome, the drums, the guitars and the bass also, i like a lot this band and i thnik they should be more bands like this in our days because glam and hard rock is almost dead except for the big bands, LONG LIVE FOREVER HARD ROCK"
Excellent 80's Heavy Metal Music

"Frankly I could give a rat's behind about 80's bands having long hair or mullets - it was a thang. No worse than every 90's copy band having bald headed guys in their midst or guitar playing in drop D tuning - it's all just whatever becomes popular, copy bands will do.

This CD rocks. I love the opening track "Give It All You Got" and rank it right up there with any 80's guitar shredding metal music. This came out around the time LA Guns "Cocked & Loaded" came out and I used to hear Shy's "Give It" in rotation with Guns' "I Wanna Be Your Man".

Another great track on here is "Money" and it's one of those social songs that points out the obvious yet nevertheless rings true. You gotta have money & everyone has their price. Another cool track is "Burnin' Up" which has some cool guitar riffs and vocals.

Overall I'll play this CD along with my LA Guns, Slaughter, Damn Yankees, Stryper, Lizzie Borden, Y&T, Quiet Riot, Def Leppard & Guns & Roses hits. If you like guitar metal and high pitched vocals, this is a great CD to enjoy. Recommended."
