The Best of 2014!
January 26, 2015 -
2014, the year that was. The Best of lists from Mike, Pete, Jez, Terry, and myself have been posted. A strong year, but actually there was less consensus amongst the 5 of us then there has ever been. That tells me there were a LOT of good releases across many genres. Enjoy!

|Quality hair metal for lovers of Poison and Warrant. Singer has a cool voice, good production, and a number of good tunes. The cover is OUTSTANDING!

|Mark...what the hell u smoking...these guyz BLOW!...they arent worth wiping the asses of Warrant/Poison let alone sounding like them....very very dissapointed in the sound...quote the Widomakr...never more...

|Dude, I don't think he said they were as GOOD AS Warrant and Poison, just that they sound along the same lines. And that never more thing got old after the 6000th time you used it. I happen to like this album pretty well.

|I'm so happy to say this excellent hard rock party band have decided to make a comeback and bringing out a new album in the future on Z Records. It's just amazing to think that a couple of years ago melodic hard rock was pretty much dead, but now most of them have made comebacks. Poison,Warrant,Giant,House Of Lords,Hardline,Ratt,Skid Row, Danger Danger just to name a few and with bands like Firehouse and Slaughter still going and new bands like Atello and Silent Witness it's just so exciting!

|Listened to this last night and pretty good melodic metal. I was actually amazed by the guitar work as I don't remember Steier being this good in Warrant. Nothing jaw dropping here but worth checking out. By the by NO WHITE GUYS SHOULD EVER be allowed to cover a Stevie Wonder tune!!! As a white guy I'M embarassed at their attempt to sound 'funky' here on 'Tell Me Something Good'. Guys with mullets do not have the funk man, end of story. Besides that definitely worth a listen.
||Date: May 15, 2002 at 19:25|
|So who in this band had a mullet? do you know what a mullet is? These guys had their hair all one length. DUH! More 80's pop artists had mullets than the hard rockers.

|It was more a generalizing statement about metal fans at the time, not the band members. Settle down.

|wild horses members rick steier and james kottak were once IN warrant.

|stuff the in depth musical knowledge. I just ilke it. Bought bareback for $5 years ago and it's the best CD i've got. Why did they ever give up ?.
||Date: August 16, 2002 at 2:53|
|Pretty average hair band. Steir and Kottak left Kingdom Come to form this band, before joining Warrant. 'Cool Me Down' is a good song, the rest are ok. Nothing to write home about, but not bad either.

| TONY.....No White Guy should ever cover a Stevie Wonder song? Three words Stevie Ray Vaughan, he did a fantastic job on Superstition.

|How about if I said no sighted guys should cover Stevie Wonder? Then what would ya do?

|i've heard that wild horses's original singer was johnny edwards, but was replaced by john levesque. johnny edwards and james kottak also played together in buster brown and montrose.

|I expected a lot more out of this one. 'The River Song' showcases the singers distinctive voice. Unfortunately, that voice does not always work through out the album. 'NYC Heartbreaker' sounds like 5 songs smashed together. 'Cool Me Down' is as boring as Jet Red (just wanted to use Jet Red reference). I for one liked their version of 'Tell Me Something...', kudos for at least trying it. Painfully plain, but better than Poison. Don't get me started on that bunch...

|A bit commercial sounding, but well-executed and catchy. Not my favorite disc in the world, but it gets some play in my car every once in a while.
||Date: April 16, 2003 at 9:56|
|Good stuff, acquired cheap and was highly satified, for sure better than some of the stuff (BLue BLud) going for outrageous prices on ebay.

|Cool Me Dowwwnnn!!!Long Live Hard Rock of the 80zzz.Keep The Faith

|Has anyone heard their new release yet?
||Date: December 3, 2003 at 21:35|
|Holy Whitesnake- not bad but NOT original in the slightest
||Date: January 7, 2004 at 0:02|
|Who cares about originality? Isn't that why we all always listen to hard rock music? As long as it rocks your goddam soul who cares? At first when I heard this cd I wasn't taken, but it grew on me hugely and now I rate it as one of the gems in my collection. Sounds like these guys had a lot of fun making this album and it really shows in the energy of the songs. My kind of Rock'n Roll.

|erm...let me put it this way!...if david coverdale was the lead singer in this band ,this album wouldve been a much better follow up to the '1987' album than 'sleep of the tongue' was;get the picture!...but hey! dont get me wrong this is an excellent melodic rock album in its own right.

|These guys got lost in the mix back in '91 but this is a great hard rock album by some very good musicians. I wonder what they must've sounded like with Johnny Edwards on vocals before he jumped ship for Foreigner? John Levesque is a very good replacement tho'.

|John Levesque, if you read this, contact me immediately. We have some mutual friends from back in the Northbridge, MA era, and I want to discuss some musical stuff with you. Thanks - www.retrospectrecords.com - Joe Dolan

|Just got this album and I think it's great piece of 90's hard rock! Great songs, great sound and production, great musicians... I like it much better than their second one...

|Decent third rate hard blue hair metal (how's that for a description?). Nothing sticks out too much, but nothing is too bad on the album either. 6/10
||Date: August 17, 2004 at 1:44|
|Very ordinary hard rock, but here I go again (Warning!!!) and I am again going to rave about ballads. The two on this, 'The river song' and 'Matter of the heart' are so f*cking good and easily worth the low price of the CD alone. Aside from those two, it is very average, but a good band in regards to individual member's talents.
||Date: February 21, 2005 at 10:04|
|Though I easily prefer Kottak and Steier's work in Kingdom Come, this was not a bad album at all. I'm not a fan of the ballads on this one, preferring to stick to the uptempo rockers which were plentiful. Cool Me Down, Had Enough Of Your Love, & Tougher Than Love stand out in my memory as cool 80s metal tracks. No weak songs, but some could have used a little more power or edge (esp. the ballads). But def. worth the $$$ if you find a good used copy.

|If you like hair metal this is essential.That´s all folks!!!!!

|These guys rock!! If you like any of the hard rock/glam bands that saw success in the late 80s/early 90s, than you need this disc. 'Cool Me Down', 'Had Enough of your Love', 'Burn It Up', 'Tougher Than Love', 'Fire and Water' are all classy rockers which don't disappoint. One of my current favs!
||Date: November 7, 2006 at 21:01|
|Bottom line, if you enjoy Melodic Hard Rock/Metal, then you can't go wrong with this release.

|THE DRUMS ON 'TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD ARE A JOKE. JOHN LEVESQUE PERFORMS IN VEGAS IN A MOTOWN REVIEW THAT FEATURES ORIGINAL MOTOWN ARTISTS. TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT THAT.

|A Damn Good Hard Rock Album!!! check out the ballads ' the river song'...fantastic!! 8.5/10
||Date: March 25, 2009 at 11:04|
|Not bad at all. I can hear Warrant, Hurricane and Cinderella in this album and it definitely grabs my attention by the first listen. 85/100

|important hair metal release by the great WILD HORSES.when you have such terrific musucians,keith olsen in production and the money of atlantic record company ,nothing can go wrong.for me this is under rated and should have earned more respect among hard rockers.great sound,feel good attitude,and many many strong songs.come on everybody listen to it again after so many years and you will see its high quality hard rock music,better than the recent releases.it s just a matter of the heart!

|For me this album rocks pretty good guys!!! ... early 90's Hard Rock...where people still believed that any other kind of music genre was gonna kill Hard Rock and Rock in general...(you'd better ask Dave Ghrol )...anyway..."Cool Me Down","Your Love Is Junk","The River Song"(solid ballad),"Fire & Water"(ala Bad Company ),"Whiskey Train" & "Matter Of The Heart"(love this one,AOR feel all over!)...are my favorites...up to you guys...90/100

|Good album from ex-Kingdom Come members, nothing new, just early 90´s hard rock. Another band and record that dissapear in the 90´s grunge revolution. Un disco más de hard rock sin pretensiones que pasó sin pena ni gloria debido a la falta de promoción y al boom del sonido grunge, buena colección de temas inéditos y alguno que otro cover, Un disco disfrutable para todos aquellos que amamos el rock ochentero.
