Overview

Yeah, Kingdom Come were a bit too enamored with Led Zeppelin on their first album, and their career didn't last much longer after that, but at the very least they were one of the very examples of what was storming the rock charts back in 1987-1988. Zep-styled riffs and that sorta watered-down boogie-guitar swagger were everywhere, and Kingdom Come were just one of the many bands getting loads and loads of criticism from purists. Oddly, though, the kids (for a short time) loved it, and the records sold enough to convince those at Polydor to release this collection of some of their more well-known tunes. Obviously, it's not a collection that's gonna be picked up for its artistic integrity ("Get It On" sounds like a half-baked "Kashmir"), but it's probably fair to say that Kingdom Come really wasn't too concerned with "art." This collection works because it's a fairly good snapshot of the kind of rock that very, very briefly made quite an impact in the late '80s. If acid-washed jeans and big hair were your thing, then this collection was tailor-made.
