Review Text In the late '80s and early '90s, the small, Chicago-based Red Light Records set out to document the Windy City hard rock/heavy metal scene with releases by Joker and Diamond Rexx (who had previously recorded for Island). Led by the outrageous, sneering Nasti Habits, the obscure Rexx had a very Alice Cooper-ish sound. Had Cooper sung lead for Mötley Crüe or WASP, and had decent, but not great, material to work with, it might have sounded something like Rated Rexx. While the songs on this generally likable CD aren't in a class with the better works of Cooper, WASP, or the Crüe, Rexx did have potential. But the band wouldn't be given a chance to develop -- by the mid-'90s, alternative rock was the rage, and bands like Rexx were hardly a priority among labels. ~ Alex Henderson
