Arcade was a project put together by Ratt vocalist Stephen Pearcy and Cinderella drummer Fred Coury at the final days of the hair metal era. The band was spandex free by this time, but the music still had a lot in common with Pearcy and Coury's previous bands. Arcade wasn't as sleazy as Ratt or as bluesy as Cinderella, instead taking a melodic, middle of the road hard rock approach. It's actually pretty decent stuff if you're into this kind of music (and you know I am). It takes advantage of the strengths of that era's hard rock and does away with the ridiculous excess.

Had it been released a few years earlier this band and album would have been well received, but 1993 proved to be just a bit too late to try and start a new hard rock venture. Grunge took over and this kind of melodic rock was pushed to the back burner. Arcade managed to issue another album (A/2) and a compilation (A/3: Live & Unreleased), but this party was more or less over before it had a chance to get started.

I'd still recommend Arcade to just about any fan of the 80's hair metal and melodic rock scenes. It's probably not as memorable or over the top as the average Ratt or Cinderella album, but Arcade is still a very solid melodic hard rock album that's well worth checking out.

Reissue Notes: Arcade was reissued in 2001 with digitally remastered sound. No bonus material, but the improved audio made it a worthwhile upgrade.
