This album pushes Kix in a more new wave direction than their hard-rocking debut outing. On this surface, Cool Kids might seem like a commercialized cash grab: it contains a handful of tracks penned by hired guns like Nick Gilder and Holly Knight and also adds a layer of new wave-styled synthesizer shadings to Kix's pop-metal sound.
However, this impression is soon revealed to be wrong as soon as the album is spun because the outside song contributions fit neatly in with the group's own songs and the sonic embellishments enhance the group's sound instead of watering it down. So I decided to keep it to avoid the drama of returning it! But please next time you buy a defective LP, don't try to push it off on unsuspecting people, by letting them think it's new!
This is a terrific record and it sounds very, very good. I wish they'd put out some other records like they did with this one, as they're hard to get and used. I love this album and it sounds true to the original album. The Remastered CD of this album along with Mid. Dynamite is incredible, too.
Great band, great sound. KIX was and is a blast to listen too. These guys never quite got the credit they deserved, which is a shame, cause this is a great, fun album. The irony is that "Don't Close Your Eyes" was their big breakthrough and it's a power ballad. Don't get me wrong, it's a really good song, but I prefer the high octane rockers. Which is pretty much the rest of the album. Crank it up and enjoy! Old school rock! Great list of songs , must have CD. Great album hopefully Hotwire gets a proper rerelease too.
Sound quality is awesome. Glad I could find this. KIX , Kicks Ass! One of Their Records it Rocks! I Enjoy This Album. I like this album, but I'm not sure if it's because the songs are so good, or if it's because it reminds me of being a teenager for that's when I first heard it, lo those many years ago. The songs are kind of limp-wristed and sissified. Not exactly "manly" music.
In fact, it sounds like it was recorded by a bunch of year-olds boys in a basement somewhere in Idaho. But dammit, these songs are catchy as hell--just not something I would blast from my car while cruising for chicks. I was a teen when this album came out. I heard Body Talk on the radio, but they would never say the band name. Roseburg, Oregon in the 80's. I searched for this song for manny years prior to the internet, finally found out who the artist was is Who knew.
I was looking for A dance band. Skip to main content. From the Album Cool Kids. Listen Now. Your Amazon Music account is currently associated with a different marketplace.
