Fletchanator's comment: This is the one and only album released by French four-piece YLD. It's straight-forward hard rock with a good beat and average vocals (probably the weakest part of their effort, IMO). Still, how many French hair metal bands do you know of?

YLD was actually from Kansas City, MO. and were called FrequentZ's. The original album was called "Window Shopping In Fool's Paradise and Lee and Eads were replaced before recording the album. The band broke up in 1993.
