|23 years in waiting since the last studio effort for this? A more appropriate title would be 'Hell Yawn'. In almost a quarter of a century you think Black N Blue would have saved a couple aces up their sleeve, but it's clear that the magic is long gone. 'Hell Yeah' continues the downward spiral slide of 'Nasty Nasty'(1986) and 'In Heat'(1988). You can't blame the Gene Simmons hex on this third strike for being bland, and hook-less with only a couple decent mid tempo tracks, 'Fools bleed' 'Falling Down'. Looking back in time I consider 'B n B' a good second tier band, which didn't have what it takes to go to the next level after peaking with 'Without Love' (1985), which sounded great with the production skills of Bruce Fairbairn. Even that release's first and only single was the power ballad 'Miss Misery'. Missing on 'Hell Yeah' is now KISS clone guitarist Tommy Thayer in which I I was never a a big fan of, but maybe the original line-up would have helped. C- on the Stallion Scale.

|Correction, that's 'Miss Mystery', Miss Misery is a ex, restraining order, still pending.

|Wow. I'm not completely on the other side of the fence as MS but I'm mostly over. This disc has some very good music on it that old Black 'N Blue fans will really enjoy. It also has some filler. That said, I COMPLETELY understand what Black 'N Blue is as I've been a fan since the first disc. That said, I agree that the tunes went downhill after the epic "Without Love". This is, and will always be, a party band that has an interesting mix. "Target" is very cool and "C'mon" would be a great show opener. To each their own but I liked it a lot. 85/100

|Pretty decent album for a band that was more or less out of the scene for a while..."Monkey","Hail Hail","C'mon","Angry Drunk Son Of A Bitch","So Long","Candy" & Hell Yeah"(probably the best song of the record)are my faves...good to have 'em back anyway!!!...82/100
