Anyone who's a fan of WildSide, is aware that this release wasn't REALLY the WildSide that people knew and loved. The two guitar players, Benny Rhynedance and Brent Woods, both responsible for the band's powerful sound, left the band two years earlier. With a complete departure from their 1992 Capitol Records release Under The Influence, most agree that this was a last gasp attempt at commercial success for the remaining members and a jump on the grunge bandwagon. It sold miserably and was dismissed quickly by former fans. What was left of WildSide broke up shortly after in 1995. D+

In 1988, at the pinnacle of the "Hollywood Hair Metal" craze, WILDSIDE was formed by guitarist Benny Rhynedance and singer Drew Hannah. Both were 1986 Hollywood Hair Metal transplants from the pre-grunge Seattle music scene, which was then dead as a doornail.

In 1988, after slugging it out for 2 years on the L.A. club scene as glam rockers ROGUE, and enduring the Hollywood "Pay To Play" club promoter rip-off, Benny and Drew quit their original Seattle band. The two formed YOUNG GUNNS and recruited 2nd guitar player Brent Woods from the pop-metal strip band ALRISHA, and super glam bassist Marc Simon from ST.VALENTINE.

The guys searched for a permanent drummer and dominated the Sunset Strip and THE WHISKY A GO-GO on Monday Night "No Bozo Jam" nights. After a year and a half of "false starts and flakes," they found ex-NRG and "no non-sense" drummer Jimmy D. from San Bernadino, CA.

With a solid line-up, the band began an all out assault on Hollywood. Sold-out shows followed at The ROXY, WHISKY A GO-GO, GAZZARRI'S, XPOSUER 54, and SPICE ON SUNSET. Front page covers on all the L.A. rock press arose, and record labels began to take notice.

This isn't bad for a band who tried to fit in with the grunge bandwagon bands but it's not supposed to be hair metal/glam rock!!!
It's actually a decent album but it sold bad and they split up pretty much after this release! !!
Buy it if you need it for your Wildside collection! !!!

Wildside released their second album "Wildside" in 1995, and shifted a complete 180 degrees from their butt-kicking debut album. While I don't hate everything that calls itself alternative rock, I always took issue with melodic rock bands from the '80s that tried to jump on the grunge bandwagon.

First things first: if you're looking for anything that sounds remotely close to their debut album, you'd better stop right here. This album is absolutely nothing like "Under The Influence" at all. The previous reviewer said it well when he stated: "Surprise it's Alice In Chains." That's exactly what this record sounds like, or at least attempts to sounds like. The problem for these bands is that they mastered the melodic rock sound to perfection, but when they turned to try and seamlessly jump on the grunge bandwagon, they just sounded stale and contrived. I'd suggest songs from the album, but nothing stuck out to me at all.

Let this review be a warning to all Wildside fans, this album is a huge difference in what you loved about the debut album.

This is a really good cd, but be warned it is not hair metal like the excellent first release, Under The Influence. This is a great impression of Alice In Chains. Once you get over the initial shock at the change in style, it's actually a really good grunge album. This is the best attempt at adapting to the style of the day compared to attempts by Dokken (Shadowlife) and Warrant (Ultraphobic, Belly To Belly) to name two others.
