4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Best Of January 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Britny Fox were a hair band that had it all: an excellent guitarist, raspy voiced singer, and a hit song in Girlschool. This collection only spans their first two album with orignal singer, "Dizzy" Dean Davidson. Their first album is considered a hair metal classic. The songs "Girlschool", "Long Way To Love", and "Save The Weak" all rock hard. This collection also include their two cover songs "Gudbye T'Jane" by Slade, and "Hair of the Dog" by Nazareth, both of which are excellent. This disc is also enhanced so if you pop it into you computer you can see a live video of "Long Way To Love" and the music video for "Girlschool". Not bad for $10.

4.0 out of 5 stars A highly underrated rock band July 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
yeah, yeah, yeah... they've been called poseurs, annoying, a "second rate Cinderella," but one cannot deny that Britny Fox recorded catchy rock songs during their time(unless one simply does not like rock and roll). Long before bands started brooding and singing about the depressing state of affairs on the news, bands like BF sang about chicks, parties, nightlife, and good ol' rock and roll (God, I miss the 80s)!!! This CD includes a great compilation of BF's songs, and it will fit nicely in anyone's rock collection. It would be great to see this act tour with Poison or Warrant sometime soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Late 80's/Early 90's Glam Metal December 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Britny Fox was a really talented band that had the misfortune of being categorized as a "hairband." I always viewed the term hair band to be applied to hopeless wannabes that had a lot of hair and very little talent. This band in my opinion didn't fall into that category.
While the band currently has a new vocalist (Tommy Paris), original singer Dean Davidson is on all of these tracks, all of which were culled from the band's self titled debut and second album, "Boys in Heat;" both of which stand very well on their own.
Almost every track on the album is great rock and roll. My particular favorites are "In Motion," "Girlschool," "She's So Lonely," and "Long Way to Love". Two cover songs are on the album -- Slade's "Gudbye to Jane" and Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog." "Dream On" is their own original -- not the one made famous by Aerosmith. But when you name a song after a classic one like that... what do you expect. Nevertheless, Britny Fox's "Dream On" is still a pretty good track.
To their credit, the band has carried on and has released several other albums: "Bite Down Hard" (1991), "Long Way to LIVE" (2001), and "Springhead Motorshark" (2003).
Too bad Britny Fox came when they did during the advent of Grunge. They never had a chance as their style of music and image was on the way out as far as popular culture was concerned. But judging from what's "popular" in music today, I'll stick with what's good -- stuff like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just call it ROCK August 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
There is a good reason for the CINDERELLA reference to the band's sound...

The guitarist was a founding member of Cinderella, but before the band was signed, they had to disown Mr Mike. Jeff LaBar was a friend of studio exec, and a fitting replacement. No major loss or gain either way.

Guitarist Mike simply reformed another band; banged out his steady, consistent, balls-on hard rocking style; not to mention finding a comparable singer to Mr Kiefer...

The result is the music world did not suffer. We, the fans, got two fantastic rocking outfits producing music during the only period where good, consistent music was released.

Grunge may have killed AOR radioplay, but the majority of these bands continued on (and several still do).

Britny Fox, hair band or otherwise, still belted out fantastic music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid Compilation From a Short-Lived Band March 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you weren't born before 1988, you probably have no idea who Britny Fox were. Back in the heyday of hair metal, this Pennsylvania-based band-- which had the look and sound of another Pennsylvania-based hair band, named Cinderella-- managed to get itself noticed with video airplay on MTV with their songs "Long way To Love", and "Girlschool", from their '88 self-titled debut. Another album, "Boys In Heat", followed in late 1989, but shortly thereafter, the original vocalist left the band, and hair metal in general was supplanted with the alt/grunge movement of the early 90's. Britny Fox pushed forward with a new lead singer, but eventually faded away.

So what you get on "The Very Best Of Britny Fox" are songs primarily, if not entirely, from the first two albums. The aforementioned "Long Way To Love" and "Girlschool" (their best song, in this reviewer's opinion) are featured in both studio version as well as live from a 1988 show in Japan. Also on the compilation are the catchy "Gudbuy T' Jane", and "Dream On". One notable omission is "Fun In Texas", from the first album- I'd have preferred that over the soggy ballad "Save The Weak".

If you're a fan of the 80's hair metal sound, this best-of CD from Britny Fox is worth owning. It's a nice little time capsule from that long lost era.

4.0 out of 5 stars Britney Fox - 'The Best Of .....' (Sony) January 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I don't care WHAT anyone says, Britny Fox IS in fact like a Cinderella wanna be. That's isn't necessarily a bad thing, for I saw the band twice back in the day and always wanted to check them out again. This 'Best Of' compilation looks to be pulled from their first two albums, that were good '80's metal. Tunes I liked the best were "Girlschool" (love the old Mtv video), "Long Way To Love" (reminds me SO much of Aerosmith), "In Motion", a cover of Slade's "Gudbye T' Jane" and "Standing In The Shadows". A couple of live tunes were tagged on to lure both old and new fans, I'm sure. A should-have.

Britny Fox was a two-hit-wonder Cinderella wanna be. Dressed like Poison, with some of Warrant's make-up, but a Cinderella vibe and a bit more blues than Poison. Read more

It was the early 90's and rock and roll was still on top for just a little longer. The rough and loud vocals of the lead singer are pretty amazing. Read more
