    Awful. Obviously this album has the two biggies but otherwise there's nothing here. Easily one of the worst bands to come out of the 80's. Literally a two hit band.

    Thanks to Randy Rhoads. After the untimely death of Ozzy's lead guitarist Randy Rhoads on March 19, 1982, Quiet Riot came to fame. In face, the song Thunderbird was written in his honor. Many great, catchy songs that took me by surprise. Unfortunately, Kevin lost his life as well. This album brings back a great many memories from my younger years and I'm glad I found it on iTunes.

    Classic glam metal. As a metalhead I enjoy multiple genres of metal. Death, doom, black, metalcore, yes even nu-metal. Then there's glam metal (AKA hair metal). Which is in a nutshell 80's pop mixed with metal. Glam is something that I really want to get into but it's a hard genre to enjoy for a metalhead that listens to mostly grind or death. However, while browsing threw the iTunes metal section for a good album to headbang to, I found this. Metal health by quiet riot. It looked like a death metal record, I loved the artwork, so I gave it a listen, and to my surprise its a glam metal album. And a VERY good one at that. I was shocked to be honest, and I have been listening to this non stop for weeks. This album offers something for everyone. Metalheads, pop fans, it's truly a treat. So put your horns up, and get ready to headbang \m/

    Took 2 to not come close. I remember the period in the early 80s when this was released for one particular heart-wrenching reason. That year two guitarists had to fill the recently departed Randy Rhoads’ immense shoes. Carlos here in QR, and Brad Gillis with Ozzy’s touring band.

    One album wonder. Quiet Riot's Metal Health is a genre-defining that any metal fan must own, if for nothing more than the title track. Metal Health will drive you mad, because you'll wonder why this uber-talented band could never make another release this good. I guess the stories about Kevin DuBrow are true, he must be immpossible to work with. I love Carlos Cavazo on this album, amazing guitar player and an under rated forgotten hero os the 80s Metal era. If you're a fan of 80s Glam & Heavy Metal, "Metal Health" is the album for you.

    This album is amazing. I love this band although they got much critisism I believe this to be one of the greatest metal albums to date. Every song on it is a classic. and i disagree with the review because the follow up condition critical also sold millions of records and is a great album as well.

    Ahhhh, the memories. . .. Loved it back in the day, but now I'm almost 30 years older, and it's not doing much for me--it's more about the memories associated with the music than the music itself. . .but I still giggle like a little girl when I listen to the lyrics of "Let's Get Crazy". Don't think there's a tackier line in any song, ever.

    The Greatest 80's Metal/Hard Rock Eyeopener. This is indeed, the one album that set the pace for the 80's Metal Scene. It broke boundries. Like AC/DC... This album made everyones list. The hoods, the ropers, the preps and the jocks... all paid homage to this release. This was like the Breakfast Club of the 80's.

    Buy The Whole Album!!!!. The whole album is fun hard rock/metal, and even the goofiest songs are fun to listen to. The ballad "Don't Wanna Let You Go" is even more poignant given that it was written about Randy Rhoads leaving the band to join Ozzy. Great stuff.

    Metal Health will drive you mad and keep you healthy. FIrst off I don't know why Kevin Dubrow's voice was characterized as a growl to me it seems higher or rather like a razor blade (as Blackie Lawless of W.A.S.P. fame put it). Banali provides some good drum works and while Carlos Cavazo is no Randy Rhoads he can shred and tear it up on the guitar fairly well. Plus Rudy Sarzo's rhythmic almost classical bass playing and vocal backing just makes every song on this album great. The title track just sets the mood and makes you want to bang your head. "Come on Feel The Noise" which is a cover by the band Slade is just taken to a greater level altogether and demonstrates why it is one of the best rock/metal themes of the 80s. Every song following these sounds almost the same up until the touching ballad Thunderbird written by Dubrow for his former band mate and friend Randy Rhoads. The album and songs seem cheesy but at the same time it just works and the 80s were about corny stuff. Check this album out you will not be disappointed RIP Kevin

Quiet Riot - Metal Health Album Wiki

Metal Health is the third studio album by American heavy metal band Quiet Riot. It was released on March 11, 1983, bolstered by the No. 5 hit "Cum On Feel the Noize" and the No. 31 hit "Metal Health". Metal Health is notable for being the first heavy metal album to reach the top spot on the Billboard 200, replacing the Police's Synchronicity at number one in November 1983. The album went on to sell more than ten million copies worldwide and is considered a classic among heavy metal fans. Some critics, such as AllMusic, describe it as a one-hit wonder, owing to Quiet Riot's relative lack of critical and commercial success with following albums (and subsequent disintegration) towards the end of the 1980s. The title track was ranked No. 35 on VH1's 40 Greatest Metal Songs. The band went on a tour the same year and supported Black Sabbath on their Born Again tour in the US. "Slick Black Cadillac" is a re-recorded version of the same song from Quiet Riot II. The song "Thunderbird" is dedicated to guitarist and founding member Randy Rhoads. Although the bulk of the song was written for Rhoads while he was still alive, Kevin DuBrow added one final verse as a tribute to Rhoads after he died in a plane crash on March 19, 1982.The title track is known by a number of slightly different names. It was simply called "Metal Health" on the original vinyl release, but most subsequent reissues of the album on other formats call it "Bang Your Head", with the phrase 'Metal Health' in parentheses, either before or after the "main" title. The lyric from that song, "Well Now You're Here, There's No Way Back", eventually became the title for Quiet Riot's documentary in 2014..
