Profile This is something for the Hair Metal / Sleaze ‘n Glam / Melodic Hardrock fans out there. Released in 1989 “Window Shopping In Fools Paradise” (original title) from YLD is exactly what this genre stands for: smoking hot guitars with squealing solos and big riffs, straight ass kicking songs, a cool singer who reminds of Ron Keel meets Tom Keifer from Cinderella and a powerful production.

Songs like “Wild Girls” (like a mix of XYZ and Cinderella), the incredible “I Need” that reminds of Keel meets Helix, the catchy “Simple But True”, that comes along with some AOR keys and sounds like Wild Horses song or the powerful “The Distance” with a huge chorus, big Dokken-like riffs and a great blistering guitar solo that really kicks ass, are absolute highlights and will satisfy fans of the above mentioned bands and genres.
