AllMusic Review by

Playlist: The Very Best of '80s Metal: Now Hair This! collects 14 slabs of good-time spandex rock, including genre staples like “The Final Countdown” (Europe) and Quiet Riot's enormously popular take on the Slade classic “Cum on Feel the Noize”, as well as deeper cuts like Dangerous Toys' “Naughty, Naughty” (not to be confused with the embarrassingly awesome John Parr track with the same name) and Krokus' “Midnite Maniac.” There’s a definite lack of stalwart hair metal gurus like Mötley Crüe, Guns N' Roses, Poison, or Ratt, but there’s enough here to whet the appetite of anyone who came of age in the '80s, and quite possibly induce them into going on a full-on Hit Parader binge.
