Editorial Reviews

Wild In The Streets was the band's fourth, and final, album for Capitol. It was a record of familiar components; big hooks, teeth rattling drum 'n' bass, razor sharp guitar riffs and shredding solos all locked into a brace of tunes so catchy they would easily shame the likes of Kiss and Def Leppard. Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition / Fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital tech-nology / Produced by Mike Stone (Whitesnake) & Neil Kernon (Queensryche) / 12 page full colour booklet -- 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia and rare photos

This is the pinnacle of Helix's power. The album smokes from beginning to end! Even the ballad, Dream on rocks. I think what makes this record stand apart from their earlier gems is the production values. Mike Stone really did a good job here. Brian Vollmar sounds as ferocious as ever and songs sound clearer and crisper. Highlights include title track, Wild in the streets,shot full of love, High voltage kicks, She's too tough(covered by Def Leppard later), Kiss it goodbye(your ass) and my personal fav, love hungry eyes! 1987 was a good year for me overall and this record certainly helped. Buy this if you like good, solid in your face 80's metal. Also, these guys were talented musicians who could really play. I kinda lost track of them after this and Paul Hackman's death. Get it and you'll like it!!Cheers....

Originally released in 1987,as 'Wild...' was Helix's seventh record.One of the few Canadian bands I'd fully support anymore.I know,for a fact they still exist.Just all around good old school heavy rock(call it metal if you like).Most impressive tracks are the title cut "Wild In The Streets",their anthem(?)"Never Gonna Stop The Rock",their Nazareth cover,ballad "Dream On","Give 'Em Hell","High Voltage Kicks" and "Love Hungry Eyes".Would likely appeal to fans of AC/DC,The Cult,Kick Axe,Killer Dwarfs and Twisted Sister.Recommended.

I remember listening to this on casette back in 1987 and having to end up buying it on cd as I basically destroyed the casette by listening to it too much. The opening track of WILD IN THE STREETS to the end track of KISS IT GOODBYE are great tracks. A song off of the album WHAT YA BRINGIN' TO THE PARTY is such a great track. SHE'S TO TOUGH IS A GREAT SONG which I honestly prefer over the DEF LEPPARD version. I thing that DREAM ON is a great ballad track for the album. This cd is all in all a great ROCK/HEAVY METAL album. A fan of HELIX must possess this cd.

We bought Wild In The Streets when my wife was a DJ at Incirlik AB in Turkey. It was the 80's and we picked up as many metal albums as we could. I haven't listened to it in 20+ years, so when I burned it to CD and played it on the way to work, I was a little surprised.

This album screams hair metal cliché. As soon as the first song started, I heard that "mandatory" hair metal snare drum sound. A look at the song titles added to that first impression, and then of course, there is the obligatory lighter in the air ballad, which in this case, is the third song Dream On.

However, after just the first side, I realized that despite the obvious clichés, I could actually remember some of the songs. Not only that, but they varied the tempos and feel of each song to give them a less bland sound compared to most of their hair metal peers. The photo of the band didn't help, with their "poufy" hair, but I'm sure their record company made them look that way to try and cash in on the times.

After just one listen, I realized these guys were not all that typical. There is something appealing about them that sets Helix a cut above the average hair metal band. Though they stick to some of the standard clichés of this genre, they have a distinct sound that is quite cool.

Overall, I can say I'm not disappointed in this album. After not hearing it for 20+ years, I now have to wonder why I didn't listen to it more often. If you are into hair metal, you can't go wrong with these guys. They are a notch above the crowd. Highly recommended.

This and "No Rest" were as great as Helix got. Great vocals, and you actually notice a great drummer...the crash cymbal, wow! Title track, "Bringin' to the Party", "High Voltage", are all true party anthems about being young, having fun, taking chances. Problem is Helix stopped taking chances after this, and began sounding like everybody else with garbage like "Another Taste"; then one guy died, another retired, the rest quit and Helix crashed and burned out. Pitty they could not keep going. Would like to see this reissued with some unreleased demo's or live tracks.

Originally released in 1987, Wild in the Streets was the sixth studio album by Canadian hard rock band Helix, who at the time was riding high in their own country and trying for a major breakthrough in the US. They had a major producer in Mike Stone (who had previously produced Journey and Whitesnake, among many others), a track ("She's Too Tough") penned by Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott and a cover of the Nazareth hit "Dream On" lined up as the big single.

The album, like previous Helix releases, did well at home, but never really took off in the US, despite heavy touring to support it. Well, fans loved Wild in the Streets at least, and it's not hard to understand why. This is the perfect snapshot of the Helix sound - good time party rock with a solid metal edge. Sort of like the Canadian Y&T. Brent Doerner lays down some great hooks and Brian Vollmer's vocals have a great energy and character. And as good as "Dream On" and "She's Too Tough" are, original Helix tunes like "High Voltage Kicks," "Kiss It Goodbye" and the electrifying title track are even more fun.

It may not have been the smash hit Helix was hoping for, but Wild in the Streets is a totally fun, totally rocking effort that any serious Helix fan (and anyone who is still a fan of the classic `80s hard rock sound) should own, especially now that it has been reissued.

Edition Notes: Rock Candy's 2011 reissue of Wild in the Streets features digitally remastered audio, which is a big improvement over previous CD versions. No bonus tracks this time around, but the booklet is loaded with vintage photos and a nice essay by former Kerrang scribe Paul Suter that tells the back story behind this album. Well done all-around, which is what we've come to expect from Rock Candy.
