Forgotten Hard Rock Albums : Wild Boyz "Unleashed"

Recommended Posts

Another in my series of forgotten hard rock CDs. Today's forgotten gem is 1991's "Unleashed!" by the band WILD BOYZ. A band that was featured on the Rock On The Rise section of Metal Edge magazines bvack in the day, I anxiously awaited for my local record store to have this. And disappoint it did not!

Some of my favorites:

I always wished they made another album

Found this CD in a boot fair years ago and bought it on the strength of their image and how cheap it was.

Didn't stay in my collection for long that as it all sounded a bit amateur.

I did like a couple of songs, and Pleasure and pain is a fantastic song though.

 

My only regret is when I traded it in or sold it, I had no idea how much it would go on to be worth as I barely got back what I paid for it.

I only have this in mp3 format.  I've read some positive comments about the band in the past, but unfortunately the album didn't do much for me the couple of times I played it.

Another blast from the past :) remember liking this one a bit better than some of you guys, agree on the amateur ref on the sound but I think that adds to the charm for most parts.

Had the tape back in the day, now I only have the mp3. Good album.

Really like this one. Nothing groundbreaking but highly enjoyable for this genre. If anyone has a legit cd of this, (not the boot floating around) I'll take it off their hands. Lemme know.

If anyone is looking to get this on cd but doesn't want to pay the high price for the original, Demon Doll Records has just re-issued the album, re-mastered, silver pressed, officially licensed with an 8 page booklet.

    • That is great news, one of the most consistent bands over the years
    • Well said, they were one of my favorite bands for the better part of a decade starting with High 'n Dry but unfortunately outside of some tracks on Euphoria and a couple on the self-titled album they've done very little that has interested me over the last 25 years.  Without Mutt pushing them and collaborating on the songwriting they seem to have been adrift without any clear direction
    • You hit the nail on the head for me.  The Yeah album was irritating as heck...Covers of a bunch of songs that I never liked to begin with when they should be doing new music.   Def Leppard has been absolutely terrible at releasing new music...What's there, 2 new albums in the last 15 years or something?  And 2 albums that were average at best with nowhere near the attention to detail or even focus they used to have.  They're always been my favorite band but they need a producer in the worst way if you ask me.  I mean, just put out a melodic rock album and stop screwing around with 70's influences and copycat Queen songs.  They irritate me that they've seemed to run away from the style of music that made them successful. Honestly...If they would just put out a melodic rock album in the vein of what Midnite City is doing, people would eat it up and say how awesome it is.  Instead they continue doing these hodgepodge albums with a few good songs and a bunch of bad experiments and/or covers.....with Greatest Hits albums or live released every other year. Sorry for the rant but they have been a frustrating band that was capable of much more the past 10-15 years IMO.   
    • I have that 1987 album lined up for Thursday at work... what's the next one like? The one from 1989? 
    • I'm very fond of that. Love it. Does this dude play the guitar as well as sing? I love that guitar sound he has in his tunes. Great melodic rock. 
    • Climie Fisher was one of those 80's band I loved back then. Great band. Still dig it. 
    • Really good album. Definite return to form here. This was an excellent band, but they kind of lost their way with the whole female vocal era, with some odd choices. It just wasn't for me, but now that the female vocals are gone, it's just down to proper melodic rock business. Good production and a great ballsy sound. Love the music on here... only slight "thing" is that a few choruses just kind of blend into the verses and you're halfway through before you're all like, "oh, this is actually the chorus." But that's not quite as bad as it sounds. The verses are very strong with nice backing vocal melodies popping up anywhere any time, so it's just a good flow of goodness.  Real nice album.  
    • Ha down memory lane. Watching the video after so many years.
