QUIET RIOT'S second album, 'Condition Critical', sold a huge amount of copies (in fact at the time over two million!), but, looked at from a broader perspective, it seemed to mark a significant disappointment, especially after they had turned the music scene on its head by exploding out of Los Angeles with their six million selling 'Metal Health' album. In addition, those statistic hides the fact that 'Condition Critical' is generally regarded as a much stronger work, with a reputation that has continued to grow exponentially amongst critics and fans alike. Their previous album had brought unwarranted attention from a number of detractors for their cover of the Slade track 'Cum On Feel The Noize', a massive hit single but one that, as so many were keen to point out, was not written by them. In addition, all was not well internally as the band felt (understandably) pressurised recording 'Condition Critical' in quick succession, and with a producer that they were contractually obliged to use. In addition frontman Kevin DuBrow was becoming an increasing liability, constantly berating and chastising fellow musicians from the LA scene, accusing them of riding on Quiet Riot's coat tails. Issued in July 1984, the album contained yet another Slade cover, 'Mama Were All Crazy Now' but also contained well written self penned material, with the title track being a stand out composition, truly defining the QR sound. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album, new interview, enhanced artwork and additional unseen photos spread out over a 20 page full colour booklet.
