4.0 out of 5 stars Unjustly derailed and overpraised simultaneously! July 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
After the unfortunate death of guitar wizard Randy Rhoads, bassist Rudy Sarzo participated with Ozzy on the "Speak of the Devil" live release (he did "Diary of a Madman" because he was Randy's former bandmate) and headed back to the States. Randy formed Quiet Riot in the mid-70s with vocalist Kevin DuBrow, only to defect and join Ozzy. Now Randy's dead... what now?
The bandmates decided to reform Quiet Riot, bringing talented young guitarist Carlos Cavazo into the fold and they finally were picked up by CBS and went into the studio. The result: 1984's "Metal Health." This album marked metal's first #1 hit, and since then it's been debated. I personally enjoyed the album and relished its 80s hair metal flavor, although I'm irritated by many who claim it's great because of the two hit tracks. With that said, let's take a look:
Metal Health (Bang Your Head) - One of the band's hits and rightfully so. The subtitle "Bang Your Head" is a perfect statement of how great this song is. Kevin's vocals are actually quite good here, despite what many critics said.
Come On Feel The Noize - Their huge hit that propelled the album to #1 status, this actually is a cover (the original was by Slade in 1975), but it improves upon the original in every way! They added a guitar solo, which Carlos performs brilliantly. A great headbanger, even if it's been overplayed.
Don't Wanna Let You Go - Chuck Wright performed bass here; a pretty good ballad with Kevin's vocals in fine form. This sounds a lot like Ozzy's ballads on Blizzard and Diary, which goes to show you that Quiet Riot was more than a hair metal band.
Slick Black Cadillac - One of their classics and a minor hit in Japan. This one's a good rocker with great guitars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great early album from the party boys of metal! Nov. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Metal Health is a fantastic album. Featuring some of their best songs including their all time most popular hit "Come on Feel the Noise". In the 80's there was only one band that delivered Rock-em', Sock-em' heavy metal punch, and that was Quiet Riot. Who cares what's going on in the world, forget your troubles, and crank up Metal Health all the way to the party. The live cuts of bonus material also does the trick as it adds to the flare of digital remastering. Their follow up album 'Condition Critical' is another awesome album to have as it is also one of Quiet Riot's best including no shortage of the same On-the-floor, Out-the-door beats. Quiet Riot will not dissapoint, get this album!

Format:Audio CD
While my first rock album ever was Kilroy Was Here, by Styx, my first metal album ever was this one: Metal Health, by Quiet Riot. Some music, after 25+ years, you get tired of and are embarassed that you ever owned it. Not me, not this album. Since buying it in '84, I've owned this album on cassette, LP and twice on CD. This remastered disc is likely the last time I'll need to buy this album. It was, and always will be, one of my all-time favourites. Read on.

The year was '84 and I was in the sixth grade. The previous Christmas I had just discovered heavy metal music thanks to a friend of mine who loaned me Masters Of Metal II on cassette. When Metal Health came out, he introduced me to Come On Feel The Noize. I had to have this album. My mom took me to the store where I bought it on cassette (I still recall, the cassette shell was white) and I played the crap out of it annoying everyone.

Much like my first-ever rock purchase, Styx, there were songs I liked and songs I hated. Back then I hated ballads. Obviously, I hated Thunderbird although now I appreciate it. I also hated Don't Wanna Let You Go. Basically, we played side one of the cassette, rewound, and played it again. (Don't Wanna Let You Go was on side two of the cassette version).

Everybody knows the title track here, with its chorus of "Bang your head, metal health will drive you mad." There's no Dylanesque poetry on this album, and DuBrow was never a crooner. This is about loud guitars & drums, a singer who is screaming his face off, and songs about rocking. Clearly, nostalgia has a lot to do with why I rate this album so high, but I must be honest. I simply love it, always will, and there must be some sort of magic happening here in these songs for it to stand the test of time.
