Rev It Up

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Exalted as "the Female Bon Jovi", Vixen spent several years paying dues on L.A.'s hard rock circuit before enjoying national exposure in 1988 with a self-titled album and the mega-hit "Edge of a Broken Heart." The all-female band's popularity was short-lived, however. EMI had high hopes for Vixen's next album, Rev It Up, but was disappointed when it didn't do nearly as well as expected.

By the mid-'90s, alternative rock had become the rage, and the type of pop-metal Vixen specialized in was out of vogue.

    Vixen - Rev it Up

    I Really Can't Believe that No One has Said anything about this Particular Title yet... I Honestly Thought & Still Do Today that Rev it Up was much more of a Step Away From the Glitzy,Slick Feel of the First Vixen Title,which Isn't Necessaryly a Bad Thing. I just kind of Seen it as a Different Dimension to Who They were Musicly,another Shade of They're Talent!! I Really Do Like alot of the Music On Here!! This Should've done Better,the Songs Are Very Well Written!!
