check out the two compilations on perris records. blows away this album. Evil was a good track though. ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

"Groove Tube" was a catchy song and "Too Late" was a great ballad!!!

From: michael Date: November 21, 2001 at 20:14
i gotta tell ya...this is one of the best rock n roll albums of the early 90's. i recently found a copy at a used record store...i wore out the tape years ago...on line with appetite for destruction....luck however evaded these guys...they got lost in all the crap of the other 80's hair bands...to bad..

From: cquicmoi Date: February 2, 2002 at 9:16
Well, well, I just found about this CD. There are some catchy songs but nothing that really gets you want to rock and roll and get crazy. Sometimes sound a little more pop than it should. Mickey Finn has a great voice though and a great range. I would suggest in total objectivity that you need to get this CD if you are a rock and roll lover but it's probably never going to the best one you ever had. Anyway, it is rock and that's what we're looking for right?

From: dokken6008 Date: March 23, 2002 at 8:59
There really are some very good songs on 'Damned Nation' from a virtually unheard of band, Jetboy. Bluesy, guitar-driven rock and roll, pounding drums, good production, catchy, fun songs, talented musicians----what more can you ask for in a record? I'm glad I found this cd. My advice for those who are curious about this cd is buy it if you can find it; it is a very good disc and is less cheesy than most of the rock 'n' roll that had come out of the late 80's & early 90's. Later.

JETBOY is not a band that's going to erupt like a volcano, engulf everyone in its path, quickly metamorphose into ash. "Damned Nation", is proof, a flame can eventually sustain more heat and permanence than a flash fire! "Damned Nation" dosen't play it safe, aside from the no-no that they are a rock band whose singer sports a MOHAWK, they are a band whose influences are generally considered equally incongruous. In JETBOY'S case, though,this disregard for formula gives them a fearless freshness

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: May 26, 2002 at 1:00
"BullFrog Pond" is a slideguitar stomper with southern rock embellished with harmonica, bird chirps and various swamp noises, Mason-Dixon flavor tempering their Rock N' Roll with a flattering twist. "Moonlight" is unbridled wah-wah funk, and "Rock 'N' Roller" is catchy boogie with a quickie Elvis impersonation and a campy horn section beefing up the chorus. "Evil", with its sexy, mid-tempo bluesrock, and the contagious power pop of "Trouble Comes" are more straightforward.

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: May 26, 2002 at 1:23
JETBOY safely steers away from conventionality. "Damned Nation" should have been what made JETBOY fly!!! HI! The Frost here, did anyone notice all chicks including thrasher chicks wanted to do Fernie Rod!!!What is it about brunets as compared to us blondes? I must admit I've had my share of women so I can't complain. Five BEERS up to this swamp stomper!!! I think Ive had to much to drink!!!! LATERRRR!!!! Drag-in-Bones here, Damn glad its a holiday weekend!!!

Billy Boy, what is your number #1 favorite disc in your collection? Just curious.

From: dokken6008 Date: June 27, 2002 at 5:40
D.I.B.--let me tell you something. If you are not ALREADY a professional reviewer, you could have fooled me. With your exceptional writing skills and tradmark , it's just great dude. This is only coming from a seventeen year old melodic rock fan but I'm telling you: you have a great writing talent and seem to have a great musical knowledge and I'm serious about that!!!

From: Gar Date: August 10, 2002 at 2:52
They toned down the glam on this one. Songs were all pretty good, but not up to the level of 'Feel the Shake". "Too Late" should have been a hit, though.

From: Chris Date: October 11, 2002 at 10:49
This CD was the worst by far for them. I don't know why they didn't release some of the stuff they had on Lost and Found and Make Some More Noise instead. This band rocks.

From: nitrodoll Date: October 11, 2002 at 14:09
i agree with chris from above...there 's another unreleased jetboy album comming out i heard ... cheerz

Bloody bring it!!!

From: Lance Date: April 23, 2003 at 1:29
Why these guys were never bigger I don't know. Timing I guess. Love the hot rod intro to Heavy Chevy and I'll never forget gettin laid with Evil playing in the background. She was indeed. Great Great band that deserved a lot more attention than they got. Put the windows down crank it up and cruise on !!!!

From: cruise Date: September 14, 2003 at 15:57
This is the bands best album as it has a bit more edge and is less bubblegum. I loved the attitude and it has some superb songs although this band never reached the potential of there demo releases. The vocals can sound alittle weak on some tracks but overall its great. 8/10

From: John Date: September 29, 2003 at 12:42
This album is produced very well and Mickey sings his ass off. 'Down To The Bricks' must be played loud to be believed. 'Rock N Roller' will have you bobbing your head. I think 'Bullfrog Pond' is their best song. Great, great record. 8.5/10.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 0:15
I have read the stories about the history of this band, how their original songs are very raw and sleazy. But on this disc, we get a very clean and safe album by a band that looks like it should be making something dirtier than this. "Evil" is a decent song, but the rest is boring. 3/10

From: kris Date: October 3, 2004 at 14:21
recien termone de escuchar este disco y me parece exelente , mejor que el anterior. la balada TOO LATE es ecelente ,ademas de EVIL,HEAVY CHEVY. krisglam@hotmail.com

From: marloon Date: January 20, 2005 at 18:55
I saw Jetboy in San Jo, back in earlie 90s, they kicked ass, I heard Micki is married, residing in San Diego?,, Find Mic and bring back Jetboy!!!

From: Geoff Date: February 10, 2005 at 4:02
To me this album is better than the debut and contained, at least, the beefier fuller sound I was hoping for on the debut. 'Heavy chevy' is a cool track and 'Too late' is an absolutely wonderful ballad. I love that track, and that's what sets this apart from the debut. In total, the songs are still average hard rockers to me, but that one light that shines in form of the ballad makes this worthwhile for me. Lovely track.

From: wzcj02 Date: December 12, 2006 at 14:25
I'm not impressed with this release at all. Good 80's hard rock vibe but none of these song are catchy.....poor mans melodic rock

From: z4roxx Date: October 29, 2007 at 14:23
This band has become essential for me,I hated them,I don't know why.This is fuckin'catchy sleaze rock'n'roll!!Keep on rockin'men!!!!!

From: juan carlos Date: November 4, 2007 at 17:20
Temas HardRockeros en onda Sleazy, solo me emociona "Too Late" semi-balada acústica nada mal, el resto regular y ok. Paso. 6.5/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 20, 2009 at 21:53
Much more better than their debut album 4 sure but still with some lacks of composition...,anyway songs such as "Moonlight"(cool beat),"Evil","Bullfrog Pond","Ready To Rumble" and the ballad "Too Late" possibly will catch your attention but do not expect somethin' out of this planet...shamely i think that Jetboy has always tried hard 2 be in the same line as Fasterpussycat,Ratt,L.A.Guns and so on but somehow they've never reached a level to be considered that way...as i said shamely they are underrated and with the status of "wanna be" Glam stars.85/100

From: erik Date: September 15, 2009 at 14:42
Less glam and more (melodic) hard rock orientated. Good for me as i am not into sleaze glam. What a great opening tune.Stomp it is a Controlled in your face rock song as are Moonlight, Trouble Comes( best song !), Bullfrog Pond,Evil and Rock n Roller. Nice one ! 82/100

From: hair metal again Date: December 23, 2011 at 7:38
excellent release by JETBOY back in 90 !the sound is more pro than the debut and that s because of John Purdell and Duane Baron !ALL the songs are very good and i believe that this is a classic of the hair metal era!"stomp it(down to the bricks)","moonlight","evil","too late" and "bullfrog pond " are excellent songs!
