Weren't this lot supposed to be the next big thing? Then they seemed to just vanish from the radar. Well, they're back and purveying the anthemic power ballads which personify the mid-noughties. Strange, that 20 years ago this type of music was being decried from the rooftops by critics everywhere, who rejoiced when grunge killed it off. Maybe it was the big hair but apparently it's OK now, as long as it's performed by miserable, skinny white boys.
But this one is quite good. Not up there with White Lion, but better than most of the angstful anthems being hung out to dry these days. B-sides rubbish, mind.
