I can see how soneone who liked the older stuff would scoff at the pop direction.
That record is just fab. Best of the hair bands, best everything. Love that band.
I love Hysteria...Rocket, Woman, Animal, Armageddon It, Pour Some Sugar on Me, Love Bites. Awesome album and the peak of hair band popularity, but my personal favorite for hair rock still has to be Slippery When Wet by Bon Jovi. After that there are a bunch of records by Ratt, Motley Crue, Poison, Damn Yankees, Whitesnake, etc. that are all pretty good, but Slippery When Wet and Hysteria are my two favorites (and it's not really close).
Maybe R4B will come up with a really cool hair band post where I learn something about the music I grew up with (just a suggestion, no pressure).
