AllMusic Review by

Their blip on the hair metal radar may have been brief, but the Bulletboys did manage to score a few MTV hits back in the late '80s. And while it's debatable whether or not they warrant a "best-of," the Bulletboys got compiled in 2006 regardless -- with the release of Smooth Up in Ya: The Best of the Bulletboys. Although another release was billed as a "greatest-hits" set a year prior (Burning Cats and Amputees: People with Issues), this is the first Bulletboys release to include all the original versions that many a cowboy boot-wearing metallist will be familiar with. Included are such pop metal favorites as their breakthrough hits "Smooth Up in Ya" and "For the Love of Money," as well as the Zeppelin-esque "THC Groove" and a metal-ized cover of Tom Waits' "Hang on St. Christopher." For many, this is all the Bulletboys they'll need in their collections.
