Review by Matt Collar for Allmusic.com
A lot of inspired hard rock came out of the 1980s, but that decade also produced a glut of faceless "clone bands" that hadn't even a trace of originality. One of the most glaring and shameless examples was Pretty Boy Floyd, a so-called "glam-metal" unit known for its androgynous look and ultra-heavy makeup. Derivative of bands like Bon Jovi, Ratt and Quiet Riot but never even a fraction as exciting, Pretty Boy Floyd earned a following in the late '80s offering commercial hard rock at its most generic. From "Rock and Roll Outlaws" to "Only the Young" and "Wild Angels," everything on the cliché-ridden Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz smacks of formula and sounds like the result of a marketing meeting rather than genuine artistic inspiration. This is definitely a CD to avoid.
