I threw the cassette in my boom box radio as soon as I hit my bedroom, and I have loved the record and band ever since.
The opening song is a good taste of what the rest of the record was going to be — straight up rock and roll with a radio friendly feel to it. This band was one of my first exposures besides KISS to the s glam music. I was listening to all different types of music and was not too familiar with this genre.
I love how the song gradually kicks in after a small guitar intro. The video was cool to me, as a sophomore in high school, where I would dream of playing in a band and all the members were hanging together day and night, like modern day cowboys. To this day, I remember the beginning of the video where all the band members climbed out of the car and into the practice space, along with their syncopated dance moves.
I also love the guitar solo on the song, which is played with feeling. While doing research for this review, I came across the music video for the song.
I never knew one existed. The video shows the high energy live performances the band gave, along with featuring the rich man from the cover of the album watching and dancing along. The song has a catchy sing along chorus. The song is placed nicely on the album, giving the listener three up tempo songs before kicking into the first ballad. I remember the video being played a lot, along with hearing it on my local radio station. The song has the power ballad feel that was relevant for the times, but the lyrics was one of the things that separated this from other ballads.
This song is one that represents the era of the release — partying and girls. The song is harder than the other songs on the album so far, with great guitar work and a driving drum beat. This was the last song on Side One of the cassette, and gave the listener straight up rock to end that side. The title track kicks off the second side remember the days of flipping over the release?
Listening to the song, while staring at the cover, shows how album covers at the time was as important in the overall product. The guitar solo on this song to me makes the song, Cold Sweat - Warrant - Down Boys (Cassette). At a time where I was also listening to country music, this song gave my liking to the country atmosphere but with more of an edge than the normal country songs being played. The narrator in the song is looking for the girl next Cold Sweat - Warrant - Down Boys (Cassette) type, instead of one from the big city.
The song has a pop feel to it, while still having some harder guitar work in it. This is a very underrated song off the album. This track musically shows the talents of all the Cold Sweat - Warrant - Down Boys (Cassette) members. Bass player Jerry Dixon is more easily heard on this track than some of the others on the release to me. This Cold Sweat - Warrant - Down Boys (Cassette) a great three minute song, without unnecessary parts thrown in.
The final track is my least favorite on the album. The music is fine, but to me, the lyrics is a mix between the title track and the previous song mixed together. They were banking on this to be the hit, not Down Boys, and definitely not Heaven side two. It had an interesting video with the money bags Fugazi character from the album cover.
I enjoyed this tune thoroughly as a kid. Not much has changed. I dig the solo and the drum buildup. I also love how they bring it back in at the Cold Sweat - Warrant - Down Boys (Cassette). I imagine this was a fun tune live. A niiiiiice run up and down the scale to start the song. Strong chorus, strong vocal lines, cheesy, but acceptable lyrics. Overall good job by leaning on the Def Leppard chorus for this one.
Warrant might have written a song that is against the law in So Damn Pretty, the lyrics are not very kind to ladies. On the plus side, there is an absolutely shredded solo. And, a totally bad ass verse riff. Total 80s start to the tune. Tough guy "huh" part always slays me.
Interesting chromatic runs. A dynamic and compact solo that's all over the fretboard. Did he just say "early term rollovers"?
Way ahead of Diddy here as musicians who diversify their bonds. Awesome guitar intro. A real good tune on the album. Not really memorable across the hair metal genre.
They do expose the softer side of Jani Lane with the ending "whoa oh oh". Heaven is a legendary power ballad. It has all the ingredients: acoustic start, building pre-chorus, huge chorus, third verse that's rife with angst, mega key change. The double key change is some four leaf clover, Bigfoot, Chupacabra, free beer stuff. You know it's out there, you just can't prove it.
And white Cold Sweat - Warrant - Down Boys (Cassette). The video for Heaven really positioned Warrant as the white leather band, a somehow softer side of 80s hair metal, but tough, always tough. Cause leather jackets with tassels are for tough guys.

Critics and hipsters can say what they want, but for awhile, we all wanted to go where the down boys went because we knew heaven wasn't too far away. Down Boys / Cold Sweat, a Single by Warrant. Released in on Columbia (catalog no. 38T ; Cassette). Genres: Glam Metal, Power Pop. Warrant's formula for success proved irresistible to nubile teenage girls and coming-of-age metalheads in those halcyon days when Pop Metal offered a lusty alternative to New Wave wussiness. By combining sentimental mush in songs such as "Heaven" with coy, soft-smut teasers "Cherry Pie" and "Down Boys," the band satisfied the mainstream's.
