Pretty Vacant is another rock 'n' roll band that just quite didn't make it big in the '80s. Their music was an underground phenomenon but never commercially successful. Walkin' On A Tilt is a well balanced record, full of Motley Crue rock 'n' roll tunes as well as Skid Row power ballads.
Songs such as "Slow Day" and "Born 2 Lose" have powerful guitars and pounding drums. "Shine" is a classic example of a '80s power ballad, with acoustic guitars and meaningful lyrics. Singer Kenny Vacant's voice is very powerful and sounds good all throughout the record.
