AllMusic Review by

Head n' Aid was heavy metal's answer to '80s pop music charity projects like Band Aid. Spawned by Ronnie James Dio, Hear n' Aid was based around a Dio-penned original called "Stars," to which the best and brightest of mid-'80s heavy metal talent lent their pipes and guitar solos, in the interest of raising money for starving people in Ethiopia. Typically bombastic, but no more cheesy than "We Are the World." Contains interview segments with the participants on side B.
