Platinum Hair Metal Hits Review

by James Christopher Monger

Cleopatra's budget-priced, two-disc Platinum Hair Metal Hits collection may boast an Iron Maiden font, but its contents are anything but extreme. At first glance, the 30 tracks more than live up to their billing, but seasoned metal fans will no doubt smell a trap upon looking at the fine print (Leif Garrett is not responsible for instigating "The Final Countdown," nor is Starship the band playing out the final moments in the season finale of The Sopranos). Even when the original artists are credited, the songs themselves are re-recordings.
