Thought this was still unreleased... Anyway, not as good as their outstanding debut but it's not bad either. My favourite track is "Shooting Star" (very sleazy! ), which is the first track on my CD.

From: ruffles Date: November 7, 2003 at 5:59
the debut might posses a few good songs toward the middle of the cd this one is just not worth the $45.00-$90.00 it goes for and that is worhtless on this junk.

From: George Angel Date: April 1, 2004 at 12:14
This is the second but not official release from the MEGA band Vain and its Cool.This is the bands own (demo kinda) release and its ULTRA rare to find a copy.There arent official and original releases just copies in various cd forms.I own two different copies, one in Silver cd and another in Green. The cover is the unsencored image of a naked woman with Big H....s (sorry)and covers mostly are colour photocopies (or scaned copies). If you are interested e-mail me at

Killer album. A crime this has never been officially released. No wonder Island Records is no more(?). Bunch of imbiciles!!!!!

From: glamster Date: May 17, 2004 at 9:01
A great Cd, in my opinion! Yes, it's not at the same level of No respect, but it's a great example of sleaze rock. Davy Vain is a great singer, criminally underrated: albums like Move on it and fade prove that he has an incredible talent!!!

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2004 at 9:03
IMO, the best CD never to see the light of day! There is not a track on this one I do not love. 'Here comes lonely' and the brilliant 'Do you sleep with strangers' are my favourites. I'd sure love to see this released with a sound better than the demo quality I have. Just a killer band who didn't know the meaning of the word filler. 9.8/10

From: GlamHellion Date: October 9, 2004 at 8:50
"Wake Up" is one of the best Vain songs ever. What's the sound quality like on the versions you guys have? The one I have sounds like it has come off a cassette, maybe a copy of a copy of a cassette on some songs too. I wanna know if there are any album-quality sounding versions out there?

From: Nick C Date: December 8, 2004 at 7:41
This is a fantastic release...I copied off Npaster years ago and the quality I have isn't bad at all. I believe that only a handful of official island promos on cassette only were released. The songs really are excellent and for me Vain are the only glam band of that period that really kicked butt! I saw them live in Manchester and they were awesome!!

From: Nards Date: September 24, 2005 at 10:35
its good, damn good

From: Jimmy D Date: December 27, 2010 at 13:33
This CD is now available directly from Davy Vain via his Jackie Rainbow Records on It's a lot better quality than the bootleg version I already had in my collection.

From: steve72 Date: January 16, 2012 at 2:39
A well worthy follow up to the Classic 'No Respect'... although just a whisker shy of it's greatness, it contains all the trademarks that made the original so pure. Why this was shelved for 18 years is beyond me. It Rocks!

From: hair metal again Date: September 24, 2013 at 0:42
finally released the 2nd VAIN release and once again a masterpiece!commercial hard rock music with amazing guitar work and the unique way of Davy s singing,along with great songs is what you get!"here comes the lonely","love drug","too bad" and "shouldnt cry" are the highlights of this gem that was hidden due to Island records financial mess back in the day!VAIN is a great band and have never disapointed us!

From: edwithmj Date: January 21, 2015 at 5:11
Although I'm not a huge fan of Vain, they do a few decent songs among a load of filler and their albums are worth listening to for the gems to be found. Love Drug is decent enough but it sounds too similar to everything else both Vain have done before and other bands. Planet's Turning is dull while Shooting Star is probably my favourite off the whole album. The rest is mainly filler for me with Freak Flag being a particular offender; horrid song. Shouldn't Cry sounds like some sort of Brit-Indie song rather than sleaze and I sometimes check I'm still listening to Vain when I find myself accidentally listening to it. Wake Up is another classic dreary vocals song from Vain and as such, I detest it. For fans of Vain only I'm afraid as there's little here to offer fans of the genre in general.
