The general consensus of opinion about Quiet Riot's career trajectory is that they started off taking a rocket ride to the stars - their debut album sold in excess of ten million copies - only to embarrassingly crash and burn just a few short years later. Commercially speaking that was a true account of the situation, but on a musical level many agree that the band's output was inversely proportional to their chart decline, getting better and more inventive as time moved on.
The band's reached their nadir following the release of 'Quiet Riot III', when their outrageous front man Kevin Dubrow was summarily fired from the line-up. The band intended to carry on under a new moniker and looked to modify their sound, whilst searching for a replacement vocalist. They quickly settled on ex Rough Cutt singer Paul Shortino, developed a chest thumping blues rock style and met with their record company about recording a new album, only to be told that contractually, and for commercial reasons, they would have to continue using the Quiet Riot name. Despite the odds stacked against them the band's final album, curiously self tiled, originally released in 1988 was a spectacular statement, drinking from the same bluesy well as Whitesnake, Rainbow and Dio. Paul Shortino's vocals are both impressive and effective, whilst the songs are little short of spectacular, leaving nobody in any doubt that had this project been launched as a brand new entity they might well have gained a new lease of life to rival their original success. This is a Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition whic features Paul Shortino, Carlos Carvazo & Frankie Banali. It ahs been remastered with sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology by Jon Astley (the Who, Judas
Priest, Eric Clapton etc). It is packaged with a 16 page full colour booklet, 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, rare photos and full involvement from the band
