Vixen – “Rev It Up” (1990)

vixenUnlike on their debut album Vixen (1988), the ladies of Vixen wrote the majority of the songs on their second record Rev It Up.  They kept true to the formula of the debut — that being tepid, rock-lite for mainstream radio consumption.  Nothing wrong with that.  Unfortunately, Vixen didn’t really come up with any real winners when it came to songwriting on Rev It Up and the album failed to live up to the sales amassed by 1988’s Vixen.  Aside from the novelty factor of being an all-female “glam metal” band, Vixen weren’t all that memorable.  I will say this, however — Janet Gardner was a good singer.  After Rev It Up, Vixen broke up.  My score: C
