Coming at a time when so many bands were doing their best to sound exactly like Warrant or Poison or Bon Jovi, an album like No Rules really stands out. Sure, it follows a basic hair metal blueprint, and vocalist Stephen Shareaux seems to be doing his best to sound like Axl Rose, but these songs have a lot more character than you might think. Shareaux is like a force of nature, and he brought a unique energy that helped define the band's sound. Overall it's just a fun, quirky rock album that you can't help but enjoy.
The band would go on to release just one more album - the excellent Field Trip EP - before calling it quits shortly after its release. Kik Tracee may not have made a big impression on the music scene, but they're still a band that any hair metal/melodic rock fan would do well to check out, especially since both of their releases are still available for a reasonable price.
In the summer of 1992, we were already bored with the on set of the Alternative rock bands that had gone mainstream earlier that year. Nirvana was great but every band that followed just didn't cut it for us.
That summer, we stepped back a year and we played that CD more than any other CD. This band has depth and soul - I believe if they would have formed just a year or two sooner, they would have made it big.
I found my old CD tonight...it's a little scratched up but I listened to it anyways. I still remember EVERY single lyric on ALL the tracks. My favorite tracks are: Lost, RattleSnake Eyes, Romeo Blues and Big Western Sky....ahh...brings back memories.
I wish they'd get back together and go on tour because I never got to see them live.
While being labeled as a "hair metal" band, Kik Tracee actually had a little more to offer than most others trying their hand at the game. I'm not saying these guys should have been superstars or anything, but they were decent enough to get a shot. Soundwise, these guys sound similar to other bands of the day, but then in other places, they sound completely original. I guess their biggest claim to fame was that Dana Strum (of Slaughter fame) produced their record, and didn't screw them over! Favorites from the record are "Don't Need Rules," "You're So Strange," "Mrs. Robinson" and "Big Western Sky."
Definitely a band worth checking out for all you melodic rock fans out there. I really think all rock fans will dig this record, and quite possibly their follow-up EP "Field Trip" as well.

I have always had this CD on cassette tape. And I did not want to listen to it in fear of destroying the tape. So I just had to have it on CD not an easy thing to find.Published on August 24, 2013 by Todd Nicholson
Love this disc! Very reminiscent of early GnR. The mix is good and the musicianship is really good. I recommend.Published on May 21, 2013 by John Craig
