THE BAND: Kevin Dubrow (vocals... R.I.P.), Carlos Cavazo (guitars), Rudy Sarzo (bass, synthesizer), Frankie Banali (drums & percussion).

THE DISC: (1983) Originally 10 songs clocking in at approximately 41 minutes, this remastered version gives you 2 bonus tracks and almost 52 minutes worth. The bonus tracks: "Danger Zone" (unreleased studio cut), and a live version of "Slick Black Cadillac". Included with the disc is a 10-page booklet containing song titles/credits/times, original artwork and additional black & white photos, a brief 3-page intro, and thank you's. Recorded at The Pasha Music House in Hollywood, CA. Originally released on Pasha's label, this digitally remastered version is on Sony/Portrait/Epic.

COMMENTS: Disco was officially out a few years prior. The early 80's introduced us to the next popular fad - New Wave. Hard rock was trying to make a come back. To many listeners, American metal was still a question mark at the start of the 1980's. The British/European invasion of heavy metal was in full force (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Scorpions, etc). In 1983 the biggest seller was Quiet Riot's "Metal Health" - bigger than Def Leppard's "Pyromania", Motley Crue's "Shout At The Devil", or Iron Maiden's "Piece Of Mind". 6+ million units sold and growing. As quickly as "Metal Health" rose (the first metal record ever to hit #1 on the Billboard album charts), the band fell from grace. DuBrow's antics were fairly well documented (#1 reason being difficult to get along with)... with other bands as well as his own. "Metal Health" was a solid album, and it's still a classic... but, it hasn't stood the test of time as well as any of the other albums mentioned above. For me, Quiet Riot was the definition of "pop" hair metal.

I was only a kid when this album came out...but it was one of the first metal albums I ever listened to. The music was fun and fast...it energized my moody teenage nights.
Now, as a 24 year old adult, it bring a smile to my face...saw 'em live this last summer...rocked the house!
Metal Health is dated now...mostly due to the mixes being so bass-light...but the vocals, drums, and guitar really rocked the world for the times...still do.
This band was always under-rated. I don't know much about DuBrow shooting off his mouth...but which metal band didn't? Motley, Guns-n-Roses...who did mouth off?
remember boys and girls...some of us have been listening to this stuff for years, it's not just a nice cool "let's get back into the 80's thing" for us. When most of you are trying to convince us you never rocked out to this album...I will still be cranking it up!
Rock 'em on the Flip Side DuBrow!

I purchased my first copy of this in the fall of 1983 (I was in 11th grade) and listened to it about 30 times in a row as I sat on the floor of my bedroom making the mask on the cover from sheet metal for a Halloween party the next week. I worked really hard on the mask, making all the little bends, holes, and stains. My mask was about a 99% perfect copy. I went to the party and found out it was not a costume party and later forgot the mask at the party. Listening to this again after decades reminds me of a great time in my life and the most remarkable thing about this record is that it STILL sounds as fresh as it did in 1983. Seriously. Every single song on this album is great and it flows really, really well.

What's the 4-1-1?
Any 80s heavy metal fan already knows the story of Quiet Riot's third album. I mean, they played that damn Behind the Music special on VH1 a million times. Basically, the group was virtually unknown until the release of this album. The album became legendary (and I use that term loosely) because it was the first metal album to reach #1 on the pop chart. I'm sure the band would have preferred to set that record with a song of their own, but it was with their cover of Slade's "Cum on Feel the Noize" that sent the band into the mainstream.

You know the song I'm talking about. It was the party anthem of the decade. It's loud, bombastic, and undeniably catchy. However, the band's first single was "Metal Health (Bang Your Head);" a track loaded with heavy guitars and string bending guitar solos. The song also has the dubious distinction of appearing in the movie Footloose. The band takes a chance on the ballad-like "Don't Want to Let You Go," but fails because vocalist Kevin Dubrow's voice is just to rough. Killer riffs and driving rhythms make "Slick Black Cadillac" a fun ride, but after hearing the description of the actual car, who would want it?

"Love's a Bitch" works more as a ballad because hard rockers are always pissed off about relationships. "Breathless" has all the makings of a pop-rock hit. "run for Cover" actually justifies the album as a heavy metal one. "Let's Get Crazy" is loaded with hooks as it tries to undo a few in the backseat. "Thunderbird" has always been a live favorite for the band as it pays tribute to their former guitarist Randy Rhodes.

The Verdict
I certainly wouldn't rank Metal Health as one of the greatest albums of all time, but for the time period, it was a solid rock album.
