Youth Gone Wild: Heavy Metal Hits of the '80s, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine

It might not make for coherent listening, and several cuts including Krokus' "Screaming in the Night" and Dio's "The Last in Line" have dated poorly, but the set nevertheless has many metal classics. And if you want to know what mainstream '80s metal and hard rock sounded like, Youth Gone Wild can't be beat.

    Great stuff from a great decade!! Two tracks mentioned as dated poorly (Krokus "screaming" and DIOs "last in line")are IMHO the better tracks than some of the pop metal tracks like Poison (is still a boy group -) or LA Guns.Otherwise great stuff -)))
