L.A. GUNS “Hollywood Vampires” /CD/



The third full-length album by American Glam Metal/Hard Rock band.
Released in 1991, the meticulous production gives the album a sound typical of the period - a full sound, with lots of background harmony vocals, layered guitars and additional keyboard tracks. The album starts in a more somber note with "Over the Edge", which was used in the film Point Break, but the bulk of it consists of standard Hard Rockers, such as "Kiss My Love Goodbye" and "My Koo Ka Choo". The band aims for the ballad hit several times, in "Crystal Eyes", "It's Over Now" and the 1950s-style "I Found You", attempting to repeat the earlier success of their major single "The Ballad of Jayne". While no track from the album topped the charts (and the band's success declined soon afterwards as their style fell out of commercial favor), "Hollywood Vampires" presents various shades of the band and is representative of the late 1980s - early 1990s Heavy Metal scene, with riff-laden songs and big choruses on every song.
