Slick was the word I was looking for in terms of production.

Like I said, I love OOTW but many found it too slick. Some record stores had listening stations where you could hear the entire CD (if you were willing to sit there for 45 minutes and listen to it in real time.) Otherwise, you judged the book by its cover - meaning you waited for MTV to play the video or hear the song on the radio. I think the second single/video was "Open Your Heart" and then "Let The Good Times Rock." Good songs, but just not huge hit single material like "Is This Love" or "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."

And Joey Tempest never crossed over to be that superstar frontman like a David Coverdale or Vince Neil. Even Mike Tramp was more popular. Joey was too slick and polished - not enough of a bad boy.
