As if Giuffria's AOR glories were a thing of shame, David Glen Eisley turns in a coarse, amateurish vocal performance on this Dirty White Boy CD. Songs like "Dead Cat Alley" go on forever and hammer-headed lyrical cliches abound. "One Good Reason" is exactly that: a ballad that is perhaps the only justification for having this in your collection.

From: Billy Boy Date: June 19, 2002 at 19:27
Great CD! Great voice of David Glen Eisley!!

From: Kim Date: June 20, 2002 at 9:58
Yes, this is great stuff. So is His release The Lost Tapes. It totally blew me away when I heard it.

From: Tony Date: June 27, 2002 at 12:20
Just a so-so cd. You've heard this stuff all before if you get my drift. The musicianship is excellent but comes across as a hastily put together "supergroup" project. Has a Kix like sound to it and if you like David's singing and Earl's playing regardless of the songwriting then by all means pick this up. Definitely worth $5.54 if you're a fan of these guys.

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: November 3, 2002 at 23:24
Earl Slick- bustin at the seams and look out, because he's packin a double-barreled, sound for sore ear attack on your sweet innocent conscience!!! Best known for his guitar work with "David Bowie" and "John Lennon", Earl put together his own formidable lineup of players, "Ex-Guiffria" vocalist "David Glen Eisly", former "Autograph" drummer "Keni Richards" and new comer "F. Kirk Alley" on bass, who holds his own in heavy company. In shorts, this album kicks!!!

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: November 3, 2002 at 23:37
Now let's kick this up a notch!!! Enriched in pure heart felt melodies, stressing rhythm and hot blooded vocals, Dirty White Boy build the excitement, the excruciating words to "Hammer on the Heart" leading into the chilling drama of "Hard Times". "One Good Reason" is every heartbroken lover's cry for freedom, "lets Spend Momma's Money" parties harty and let's not forget the foot stompin "Lazy Crazy". A Delta-style, folk-blues intro sets the ambiance and the sound affects artfully highten...

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: November 3, 2002 at 23:48
...the spooky vibe of "Dead Cat Alley", an outstanding track that puts you right out there on the bleak, scary streets. The hot, sexy "Soul Of A Loaded Gun" lays out some serious grooves, and when David sings "Love Me Down And Dirty" it make's you want to get down to some freaky-dirty business your self. And while the subject is at hand, this album is "One Good Reason" to spend an afternoon hangin' "Lazy Crazy" keepin' up your "Bad Reputation", workin' that "Soul Of A Loaded Gun", O-YEAH!!!

Gran cd de hard americano con unos musicos grandiosos ,actitud ,produccion...

From: Scandinavia Date: December 12, 2003 at 9:11
"Let's Spend Momma's Money" says it all!!! True rock'n'roll...

From: DANTE Date: September 17, 2004 at 3:18
Buen Cd este de Dirty White Boy, aunque de sonido no tan sucio como el chaval de la portada, hay buen hard rock-sleazy como "Lazy Crazy" y temas más orientados al Aor o al rock melódico como la balada "You give me love" o el medio tiempo "One Good Reason", en resumen buen disco de hard rock'n'roll aunque bastante orientado a sonidos más melódicos de los habituales en esta clase de discos.

From: Geoff Date: September 19, 2004 at 0:42
Oh dear, the averageness of this one is painful at times. Not the worst CD ever, but just such a poor bunch of hard rock songs with no reason for surfacing themselves, IMO. Poor hard rock...

From: Rycheage Date: September 20, 2004 at 21:15
A poor man's Giuffria. This is real painful to listen to. Almost like David Glen Eisley was singing in his sleep after a night full of tequila. This is utter crap with not one redeeming quality. Avoid.

From: Dave Date: September 24, 2004 at 18:27
Cant agree with you guys on this,i'm with Drag-In-Bones , i like the album alot and i like listening to vocalists with a rough edge to their voice like D.G.E ,Paul Shortino,Paul Sabu and to add the raw sound that Earl Slick produces on the guitar , makes for in my view a pretty good album.It is 10 times better than the crap he did with Murderer's Row.But Gene Simmons agrees with you because it was him who would not let D.G.E sing for House Of Lords.

From: Trick Taylor Date: December 7, 2004 at 15:08
This thing is train wreck! DGE oversings, making his effort at tough metal seem laughable. Keni Richards displays drum skills on a par with Rikki Rockett (not a compliment). Nice fills Keni! Earl Slick's classy guitar work is misplaced in this attempt at hair glory. "You Give Me Love" isn't bad, but the rest gives no real reason to listen again. DGE really damages his "reputation" with this one. I'm glad Gene said no to him in House of Lords.

From: ROCKER76 Date: February 25, 2005 at 7:07
I have to disagree w/ Trick Taylor. I thought Eisley's vocals were effective on this album, though I was surprised when I first heard his voice on this kind of hard rock (so used to his Giuffria stuff). And even though I like Eisley's voice, it was Earl Slick's guitar that made this album for me. Bad Reputation & Lazy Crazy are great hard rock songs to kick the album into gear, and Dead Cat Alley & Badlands would have to be my picks as the stand-out tracks. I enjoyed this one a lot!!

From: z4roxx Date: December 29, 2006 at 13:39
Another great performance by David Glen Eisley.Don t like so much sleaze bluesy hard rock but this one contain great piece of solid hard rock like the opening bomb”bad reputation”,”Let’s spend Momma’s money”,”Hammer on the heart”and the marvellous”Hard times”,the best song here for me.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: October 28, 2007 at 7:55
Rock'n'Roll.. Hammer On The Heart & Hard Times lo mejor del disco con un stylo fiestero, asi como "Let's Spend Momma's Money" bueno creo que es lo unico rescatable de este disco noventero el restos de temas no estan al nivel de mis gustos, muy flojo muy pesimo lo escucho y lo vuelvo a escuchar y pues nada de nada...

From: MetalPete67 Date: January 9, 2009 at 16:49
"Badlands", a gloomy, well-performed western tale that might make you think of the film "Young Guns", is the best song on here. "Let's Spend Momma's Money" is an ok party track, but "Badlands" is by far the coolest song and makes this cd worth owning. The rest of it is rather forgettable, IMO

From: metalmaniac777 Date: January 1, 2010 at 14:43
I find this CD to be about as enjoyable as dumping dirt in my morning cappacino. This is weak, uninspired, vanilla-flavored hard rock that sounds totally half-assed, as if none of the players put their hearts into it. Even the usually-reliable production skills of Beau Hill can't save this waste of disc space. This souless "supergroup" deserves every bit of the bad reputation it's garnered over the years.

From: metalmajo Date: October 15, 2010 at 20:45
good hardrock

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 13, 2011 at 20:12
It reminded me this one of what Foreigner did with Johnny Edwards in the "Unusual Heat" album(1991)musically talking...some great songs in it backed up with the very skilled and educated voice of the former Giuffria frontman David Glen Eisley...fave tracks o' mine are "Bad Reputation","Lazy Crazy","Let's Spend Momma's Money"(great!),"You Give Me Love"(power ballad),"Dead Cat Alley"(great!) & "Hammer On The Heart"(great!)...good stuff...86/100

From: hair metal again Date: February 16, 2012 at 3:15
excellent hair metal release by DWB back in 90 ,under Beau Hill s guidance!the sound is rough n sleazy and the band seems to have the right groove!all the songs are pretty good and especially "lazy crazy","hard times","one good reason" and "bad reputation".essential for hard rockers
