Album Review

Condition Critical, Quiet Riot's follow-up to their number one, multi-million-selling commercial breakthrough Metal Health, is nearly identical to its predecessor. Not only do they repeat the hard-driving pop-metal hybrid to the last detail, they even throw in another Slade cover. Like on Metal Health, the Slade cover on Condition Critical ("Mama Weer All Crazee Now") is the finest moment on the record — it's the only time the riffs have a solid hook and the melody is memorable. However, the rest of the record is well produced and sounds good, even if the quality of the songs is somewhat poor.

NOT 'Metal Health' for sure but still solid in places! Interesting attempts to play with their, granted, limited formula, employing Bonhamesque drum bludgeon on the title track and a 'black dog'/'stone cold crazy' approach to 'scream and shout' and '(we were) born to rock' trades on a dumb interpretation of the Who/'bargain' but otherwise this is standardised early '80's pop metal! Great guitar from Carlos Cavazo and the late Kevin Dubrow turns in an atypical throat performance! Overall? Alright just not right!

But Quiet Riot's road to success had in fact been long and arduous, and when their star power subsequently began to fade, their fall from grace was ironically accelerated by the man...
