AllMusic Review by

Razor & Tie's Monsters of Rock: Platinum Edition sounds a whole lot tougher than it actually is. Sure, Ratt's "Round and Round," Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It," the Scorpions' "Rock You Like a Hurricane," and Quiet Riot's carbon-copy update of Slade's "Cum on Feel the Noize" are spandex-tight, iron-fisted classics from hair metal's heydays, but Slaughter's dreadful "Up All Night," Firehouse's FM-lite Styx-endorsement "Don't Treat Me Bad," and Warrant's universally loathed "Cherry Pie" are about as "badass" as a sack of kittens.
