  • Especially once it was reissued in the US with Generation X's classic punk-pop single "Dancing with Myself" tacked on the end, Billy Idol's 1982 solo debut wore its ties to the British New Wave scene proudly. For his 1984 follow-up, however, Idol dropped those associations almost entirely and re-presented himself as a leather-clad hard-rocker. It's a fine distinction to be sure, but one that suited him; REBEL YELL is a superior album to its predecessor. Keith Forsey's crisp production perfectly suits the tougher new songs, and showcases Steve Stevens's punchy, metallic guitar playing, the songs' most potent weapon. Particularly on the rambunctious title track, the creepy "Eyes Without a Face," and the sensual "Flesh for Fantasy"--all big MTV and radio hits--Idol, Stevens, and Forsey blend metal, hard rock, and pure pop tendencies better than almost any act at the time. The expanded CD adds five demos, including the previously unreleased "Motorbikin'."
