CONTENT
(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. BRIGHTON - Take Another Look
  Hard pop/rock.
2. CAUGHT IN THE ACT - Caught In The Act
  Hard AOR.
3. STRONGHOLD - Stronghold
  Solid hard rock with hints of something lighter like FOREIGNER or WHITESNAKE.
4. ROCKWAY - Don't Be So Serious
  Hard and fast, but still just AOR.
5. THE PLADS - Teenage Situation
  Another Alaskan band who, like PANDEMONIUM, traveled to California to try their luck. Catchy NWOAHM with a fun STRAY CATS twist. Bassist Tom Ferry later played for BLACK ICE. (taken from their "Domine Deus" MLP from the same year, reviewed here)

Side B:
1. ROUGH CUTT - Try A Little Harder
  A band that usually gets lumped in with the L.A. hair crowd, this is actually powerful DIO style metal.
2. NUHAVEN - Adultress
  Very amateur but charming L.A. metal.
3. LONDON'S SCARLETT - You And Your Money
  AOR.
4. WISEGUY - Everybody's In Love
  Power pop ballad.
5. COOK'N - All You Want
  Rock.
