Killer Dwarfs had the makings of a big-time arena rock band, but headlining arenas was something the slick outfit never had the chance to do. A big commercial breakthrough eluded the Killer Dwarfs, whose pop-metal style was sort of Mötley Crüe meets Ratt meets Poison. Typical of the band's Epic output, Dirty Weapons isn't the most original album in the world and is far from earth-shattering, though it does contain some fairly catchy material -- most notably "Last Laugh," "All That We Dream," and "Not Foolin'." Why one of these songs didn't make the Killer Dwarfs successful is anyone's guess -- the album sounds like it was tailor-made for MTV and album-oriented rock radio of the early '90s. Perhaps it fell between the corporate cracks. Whatever went wrong, Killer Dwarfs barely made a dent commercially.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This was my second Dwarfs record but my favorite. These guys should've been the next "BIG THING", why they weren't I'll never know. The songs are well written and the band just has a blast playing. The best tracks are the title song Dirty Weapons, Want it bad, Last Laugh, Not Foolin, Doesn't Matter (should've been a huge hit) and my personal fav, Coming Through! This is one of my favorite 80s records. This band had talent, energy and their lead singer, Russ Dwarf was a riot. This is a very good, fun record which is very highly recommended. Give it a try or any Killer Dwarf albums, you will be very glad you did. As Russ Dwarf would say "Go Dunk you Scribes", rock on. Buy this now! !!!
