Although it doesn't include very many tracks from Jetboy's debut album (1988's Feel the Shake), the 1999 compilation Make Some More Noise does succeed in providing a taster of everyone's favorite '80s Mohawked glam metal band. If you're looking for glam metal with a punk edge -- in the vein of Hanoi Rocks and Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide-era Guns N' Roses -- then Make Some More Noise may provide a solid introduction to one of your new favorite bands. In fact, the chorus (and title) of the track "Suicide Shakedown" sounds very similar to what Scott Weiland might have penned for Velvet Revolver. Elsewhere, however, there are tracks that sound like your run-of-the-mill glam rock of the era, namely "Crank It Up." But give Jetboy some credit -- while most glam bands of the era were quick to list Aerosmith as a chief influence, few ever actually touched upon Tyler and Perry's blues fixation, which Jetboy do here on "Let It Slide." If you're not up for trying to track down Jetboy's out of print first few releases, then Make Some More Noise is the next best thing.
