Riot: Restless Breed (Elektra/Asylum); Mötley Crüe: Too Fast for Love (Elektra/Asylum)

Danny (Shredder) Weizmann, L.A. Weekly, 11 November 1982

RIOT LOOK like a more wretched New York Dolls and play powerhouse meatrock, and as meatrock bands go, they are enchanting. The singer yodels in a wunnerful gruff voice about being a 'Hard Lovin' Man' and about all the 'Violent Crimes' in the world today. Totally radical guitar sounds and heavy-duty skin beating.

Total word count of piece: 154
