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. It isn't anything to be ashamed of -- although not remarkable, such slick pop-metal songs as "Bad Reputation," "Love Is a Killer," and the single "How Much Love" are, in fact, slightly stronger than the songs heard on Vixen. One thing EMI wouldn't give Vixen was a lot of chances to return to the top of the charts. By the mid-'90s, alternative rock had become the rage, and the type of pop-metal Vixen specialized in was out of vogue.

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!!
