    Side A:
    1. BRIGHTON - Take Another Look
    Hard pop/rock.
    2. CAUGHT IN THE ACT - Caught In The Act
    Hard AOR.
    3. STRONGHOLD - Stronghold
    Solid hard rock with hints of something lighter like FOREIGNER or WHITESNAKE.
    4. ROCKWAY - Don't Be So Serious
    Hard and fast, but still just AOR.
    5. THE PLADS - Teenage Situation
    Another Alaskan band who, like PANDEMONIUM, traveled to California to try their luck. Catchy NWOAHM with a fun STRAY CATS twist. Bassist Tom Ferry later played for BLACK ICE. (taken from their "Domine Deus" MLP from the same year, reviewed here)

    Side B:
    1. ROUGH CUTT (feat. Craig Goldy on guitar) - Try A Little Harder
    A band that usually gets lumped in with the L.A. hair crowd, this is actually powerful DIO style metal.
    2. NUHAVEN - Adultress
    Very amateur but charming L.A. metal.
    3. LONDON'S SCARLETT - You And Your Money
    AOR.
    4. WISEGUY - Everybody's In Love
    Power pop ballad.
    5. COOK'N - All You Want
    Rock.
