The best album Joan Jett put out. All the tunes here rock. Standout tracks are 1,2,5,8.

Today .Im Jason. Crap music rocks, good music rocks.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 9, 2002 at 17:01
I think Joan Jett is hott. Killer tunes, great beats, awesome guitar player. Pick this up quick. Any rock fan would love this album.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: June 18, 2002 at 20:56
For anyone thinking about buying Joan Jett, I have to say. The one you need is I Love Rock N Roll. There is a reason why it is her biggest album. Great songs like "Victim Of Circumstance" (her best song ever) are the reasons why!

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: June 29, 2002 at 15:25
Has anyone heard of the band, The Lost? Joan Jett is the closest relation to them I could fine here on H. Harmonies. She played guitar on a song for their album. The album is s/t, and some songs are called "Mindblower", Bijou Dreams", and "Laughing Boy." It's good guitar rock and I was wondering if anybody else has this album?

From: samolice Date: March 3, 2003 at 14:11
Hi Jason. I got The Lost album. Tell me if you are interested in.

What the hell did you just say?...

From: Rock N. Roll Date: April 10, 2003 at 6:42
Joan kicks! I'd love to trade licks with her on guitar, and then trade licks with her in bed, sexy babe with alot of talent!

From: Axelinger Date: April 12, 2003 at 6:31
You'd best be female then; word has it she has no interest in anything hetero...

From: Alejandro Date: December 6, 2003 at 21:12
I really like this good album. It has every kind of songs: fast song (tulane), not fast songs (desire and play that song again). The song "I hate myself for loving you" is a very good classic. The song "just like in the movies" makes me turn the volume of my radio really loud. "Up your alley" is an excellent album and Joan Jett is definitely the lady of rock and roll. I'm from South America.

From: Joan Date: September 4, 2004 at 8:35
Buenisimo!! El disco mas rockero y cañero de Joan Jett. En mi opinión está a un nivel por encima del resto. Mis favoritas: "You want in, I want out", "Ridin with James Dean" y "Little Liar".

From: poproxx2007 Date: September 2, 2006 at 18:31
An AOR classic showcasing the range and talent of a women who can rip it up with the big boys and tug on our heartstrings w/ Little Liar!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 24, 2009 at 21:21
Typical album by Joan Jett..raw and straight Rock'n'Roll.."I Hate Myself For Loving You" is a good opener,"I Wanna Be Your Dog" is a song with a Punk attitude but with a Rock feeling,"You Want In I Want Out" has an AOR flavour,"Just Like In The Movies"(cool song)and so on...is this her best???..well not a bad album but neither out of this world (my humble opinion of course and respecting the other comments)...80/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 25, 2009 at 17:51
This isn't one I listen to frequently, but it's pretty decent all the same, and is definitely harder than Joan's early Blackheart's material. "Desire," "Ridin' With James Dean," and "You Want In" are good, melodic tracks, while "Just Like In The Movies" and'I Hate Myself" rock fairly hard. "Tulane" is a Chuck Berry cover, and suitably bouncy, while "I Wanna Be Your Dog" is an Iggy/Stooges song, adn the heaviest moment of the disc.
