AllMusic Review by

Before the Internet had a Stile Project, and before there even was an Internet on which the Stile Project could exist, hair metallers had their own Stile project fronted by sisters Rhonni and Gina Stile, aka Envy. A paltry cross between Vixen and Heart, this is the soundtrack to every single movie that late-night Cinemax programming had to offer in the late '80s. Featuring future dance diva Taylor Dayne on backing vocals, this Dee Snider-produced affair sounds inexplicably like nothing Snider had ever been involved with, yet somehow he was responsible for writing the majority of the material aside from the song "You're So Hot." For fans of light, fluffy metal complete with the prerequisite power ballads and fierce rockers, this is a cult gem worth seeking out. Everyone else can and should avoid this by all means, or at least treat it as novelty material.
