Britny Fox was my favorite band in 1989, when I was a junior in high school. I instantly fell in love with their music when I heard them via MTV with their debut video, "Standing in the Shadows." And today, I am rediscovering their energized, feel-good, rockin' music. The music of today just doesn't have the same appeal, so I--like many children of the 80s--find myself looking back to the music I used to turn to to feel good in those days. Despite what people may say about B.F. being a "hair band," their music is really great and definitely rockin'! "Long Way to Love" and "Standing in the Shadows" are two of the best rock songs of the era. Dizzy Dean's voice is the voice of Britny Fox in my opinion and the band was not the same after he departed. They have been compared to Cinderella and AC/DC, but let me assure you, B.F. is an original. For all you Britny Fox fans of the 80s when Dizzy was king, this one is sure to please. Rediscover these guys today!! And as Dizzy once said to me, "ROCK ON"!! And for all of you out there who have yet to experience this great band, this CD is the one to get. Britny Fox didn't stay on top for long, but it's not because of lack of talent or great songs. They rocked then and they still do!

Britny Fox was a really talented band that had the misfortune of being categorized as a "hairband." I always viewed the term hair band to be applied to hopeless wannabes that had a lot of hair and very little talent. This band in my opinion didn't fall into that category.
While the band currently has a new vocalist (Tommy Paris), original singer Dean Davidson is on all of these tracks, all of which were culled from the band's self titled debut and second album, "Boys in Heat;" both of which stand very well on their own.
Almost every track on the album is great rock and roll. My particular favorites are "In Motion," "Girlschool," "She's So Lonely," and "Long Way to Love". Two cover songs are on the album -- Slade's "Gudbye to Jane" and Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog." "Dream On" is their own original -- not the one made famous by Aerosmith. But when you name a song after a classic one like that... what do you expect. Nevertheless, Britny Fox's "Dream On" is still a pretty good track.
To their credit, the band has carried on and has released several other albums: "Bite Down Hard" (1991), "Long Way to LIVE" (2001), and "Springhead Motorshark" (2003).
Too bad Britny Fox came when they did during the advent of Grunge. They never had a chance as their style of music and image was on the way out as far as popular culture was concerned. But judging from what's "popular" in music today, I'll stick with what's good -- stuff like this.

Let's face it in the year 2007 music is a joke. I honestly mean that. What music out there today actually makes you feel good and makes you feel young?
Britny Fox, to me, played a huge part in writing the theme songs to my adolesence. This album kicks.
Yes, they have been compared to Cinderella, but that can't be helped when their guitarist and deceased former drummer were members of that band.
Tracks like "Girlschool", "Long Way To Love" and "Standing In The Shadows" are true good time tracks. Nothing too serious. Just clean fun.
This was a band that was talented, but then again all these from the 80's were talented musicians. It bothers me when people write comments stating that these bands weren't talented because for the most part they were all incredible musicians. Today's no talent hacks should take a cue from these guys. Most of today's players are crap when compared to bands like Britny Fox and Cinderella.

Brity Fox was one of the many unsung hair metal bands from the late 1980's. They had everything that their more successfull contemporaries had, it's just that they came at the wrong time, they not 'commercial' enough for the mainstream audience, or something smelling lke that. Britny Fox had talent, they had leather and lipstick, but they never really hit it big. This is a fantastic collection, though. Britny Fox was a very AC/DC influenced band, as they showcased on such songs as 'Long Way To Love, 'Girlschool', and 'Standing In The Shadows. Although I could do without the singer's voice, this collection stands as proof that just because a band never hit it big doesn't mean they are not talented. Some of the best songs are the aforementioned 3, the Slade cover Gudbuy T'Jane, and Dream On(not the Aerosmith song of the same name).

yeah, yeah, yeah... they've been called poseurs, annoying, a "second rate Cinderella," but one cannot deny that Britny Fox recorded catchy rock songs during their time(unless one simply does not like rock and roll). Long before bands started brooding and singing about the depressing state of affairs on the news, bands like BF sang about chicks, parties, nightlife, and good ol' rock and roll (God, I miss the 80s)!!! This CD includes a great compilation of BF's songs, and it will fit nicely in anyone's rock collection. It would be great to see this act tour with Poison or Warrant sometime soon!

Can you imagine anyone making money by being a Cinderella ... band? Well Britney Fox did it! They play, look, and perform just like Cinderella. If you had never heard either band and you listened to a tape of alternating songs, you WOULDN'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE. Besides I think they had the same taylors.
