On The Prowl
1991's "On The Prowl" was the last Loudness album to feature American vocalist Mike Vescera. Metal-Reviews.com writes about the release, "While listening to the opening track of this release one gets the impression that Loudness has moved towards overly mainstream, glam-like feel. However, that is only the case for one song - as everything else bumps along with sharp cuts, Mark Slaughter and Dave King (Fastway) like vocals, and a Dokken attack to the songwriting and playing. "Love Toys" is a nasty and cutting selection, and more sharp moments stand out in the driving rhythm of "Sleepless Nights" and the pleaser "Playing Games". "Take It or Leave It," "In the Mirror," and "Deadly Player" are all strong, with the last having good energy and angry vocals. A slow mesmerizing burn in "Find A Way" gives way to a nice pickup, as Loudness once again succeeds in giving a thoroughly solid metal offering."
