YOUNGBLOOD

No Retreat

(Eönian Records)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 7.5

A hair metal band named after one of my favorite ’80s cult hockey movies is OK in my book. Plus, playing music in a genre that is equally praised as much as it is ridiculed, is also commendable. Bands like DOKKEN, RATT, POISON and MOTLEY CRUE have never been more popular as they are today, while still pumping out new and relevant music. Not to mention the popularity of STEEL PANTHER and movies like Rock Of Ages solidifies that hair metal does have its place in the music world even 30 years after its incarnation. Take Indiana’s YOUNGBLOOD, led by veteran of the music scene guitarist/producer Jeff Diehl. The band has been compared to some of the biggest hair rockers of the ’80s such as WARRANT, SLAUGHTER, SKID ROW and FIREHOUSE. Singer Bobby Sisk has an excellent set of pipes, often sounding like a fusion of Mark Slaughter, Sebastian Bach and Michael Sweet. On its debut full-length album, No Retreat, Youngblood successfully pulls off ’80s-style rock without shame, and they’re damn good at it, too. Originally recorded in 1989, the 16 re-mixed and re-mastered fist-pumping anthems that makes up No Retreat are loaded with blistering guitar solos, memorable hooks, soaring vocal harmonies and catchy as hell choruses. As good as No Retreat is, there’s just too many tracks. Maybe one or two less power ballads would do the trick. However, songs such as 'Pump It Up,' 'Feel Thang,' 'Taste Of Your Lovin’ and 'Get Down To It' bring plenty of sleazy, sexed-up rhythms and crazed debauchery. The Sunset Strip has never been so alive.
