Rebel Yell is the second studio album by Billy Idol and was released in 1983. It was much more successful than his previous debut album, peaking at #6 on the US Billboard 200 album chart, and had four successful singles on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts (“Rebel Yell”, “Eyes Without a Face”, “Flesh for Fantasy”, and “Catch My Fall”). The album would eventually achieve double Platinum status in the US with sales of over 2,000,000 albums.

Rebel Yell was produced by Keith Forsey, who had also produced Billy Idol, and featured songwriting by Billy Idol, Steve Stevens, and Forsey. A carefully-produced and constructed album, it is full of catchy hooks and synth-driven new wave pop.

A slick, carefully crafted follow-up to his debut, Rebel Yell was Billy Idol’s catchiest, most consistent fusion of synth-driven new wave pop and hard rock guitar pyrotechnics (courtesy of Steve Stevens). The eerie ballad “Eyes Without a Face” gave Idol his first U.S. Top Ten hit, while “Flesh for Fantasy” and the title track became MTV staples. Like much of Idol’s solo output, it’s all calculated for maximum appeal, but Rebel Yell also works too well not to be an infectiously guilty pleasure. –AllMusic Review by Steve Huey
