There are three remarkable issues that the release of Devil's Playground raises. The first is that, as this is Billy Idol's first album in over a decade, there's the implication that the world's original cuddly punk popster was releasing albums well into the 1990s (who knew?). The second is that Billy Idol, as the aforementioned cuddly punk popster, actually had a lot more in common with 80s American poodle rockers like Bon Jovi and Motley Crue than anything to do with the UK's punk scene. The third (and arguably most important) is that Mr Idol has quite a mischievous sense of humour--the lyrics for "Plastic Jesus" and "Yellin' at the Christmas Tree" are genuinely funny, and not in an ironic, so bad they're good, way. And though he looks a bit worse for wear on the album's sleeve, and though his voice has changed greatly in the years since his 1980s heyday, Devil's Playground is a rather entertaining rock album. "World Comin' Down" is a proper, jump-around-the-room rocker, while "Scream" has as much swagger as anything he's ever done. And it's a pace and standard that's kept up for most of Devil's Playground. Much of the album's success is down to the licks of guitarist Steve Stevens--Idol's long-time partner sounds better than ever on this reunion album, and this could be the start of many mutually fruitful collaborations. Those who still love Billy Idol will probably argue that he's always sounded like this, but for those of us who best remember his 80s hits, Devil's Playground is a rock & roll revelation. --Robert Burrow

OMG, when Billy said he was back coming at you ... he wasn't wrong! As a fan for 23 years, I have waited 12 years for this and now it's here? Well ..the whole of DP rocks! From the softer tones of 'Lady Do or Die' and 'Cherie' to the raunchy punches of 'Scream' and 'World Comin' Down' you will not be disappointed. All i can say is go and buy it whether you are a new Idol fan or an Idol fan from the past, young or old, you will find he doesn't disappoint .... like he says in 'Super Overdrive' "Does he still have the magic? Yes he does". He most certainly does. I have been fortunate enough this year to finally see Billy play live 3 times (within 4 days)when he toured the UK, he and the band (Steve Stevens - guitars, Brian Tichy - Drums/percussion and guitar, Stephen McGrath - Bass, Derek Sherinian -keyboards and guitar) absolutely rocked at the gigs, all the new songs mixed in well with the older ones and Billy's voice still belts out well with that curled lip, growl and sexy manouvers .... how can u resist the temptation to listen to him more, more, more and all night long! I for one am going out to buy another copy before I wear this one out, it gets even better and better with each play ....... I rest my case.

I have just listened to the Radio 2 interview with Billy Idol where they previewed some of the tracks from this album. If you like your tunes thumping with guitar riffs & gruff vocals & remember "Rebel Yell" & "White Wedding" as two of the best tunes from the 80's - Then you absolutely must buy this new album!

Long time fan of Billy, I was unsure of how I would receive this. The last VH1 Album was just an up-to-date of old classics-done Damn well though. The first listen was only good, with some strange songs and some good rockers.
Then on the second & subsequent listens I started to realise just how good this Album is, with typical Billy songs plus some really good humour (Plastic Jesus & Yelling...) Great to have ya back, especially with Steve (who I still reckon is only at 6/10 of his vast capabilities).
I can really recommend this!

as for the others they are all good but these are the stars

Mature artist rocks a new album.
A worthy return from Billy and Steve.
I bought the DVD 'Super Overdrive' - a live concert recording with a mix of old (classic)material and the new stuff - the new stuff held its own - so I bought the CD on spec and I'm very glad I did so.
WARNING: I've got a brilliant CD Player that digs the music out of the digital pits - so if this doesn't sound good on your player - upgrade.

Decent album from Billy after all those years. Good, bad and indifferent, springs to mind though.
Super Overdrive - something like offspring would do (6/10)
World Comin' Down - same as above (6/10)
Rat Race - reasonable (7/10)
Sherri - lovely stuff; return to form (9/10)
Plastic Jesus - depends on your mood (7/10)
Scream - a good and rocky note (9/10)
Yellin' At The Xmas Tree - gets better with every listen (7/10)
Romeo's Waiting - decent - (7/10)
Body Snatcher - good - (8/10)
Evil Eye - good - (8/10)
Lady Do or Die - Johnny Cash tribute (10/10)
Cherie - Typical Idol (Dylanesque) (10/10)
Summer Running - Nice song - (8/10)
Fairly iffy beginning especially at first listen, but the best songs are towards the end. Early tracks aside, its pretty much vintage idol.

The 2004 comeback epidemic is not over just yet. After excellent albums by oldtimers such as Agnetha Fältskog, Morrissey and some others, Billy Idol returns after some 12 years. And he scores. I'm pretty sure his effort will go commercially unnoticed, but for what it's worth, I love this album. It is a safe medley between classic 80s sharp rock riffs/aggressive vocals and soft pop-rock ballads and it really catches fire long before you hit "Scream" single (n.6 on this album with incredibly stupid lyrics). All the songs sound somewhat familiar, but this is due to Billy's recognizable style that hasn't change one bit (a good thing here). This Briton from Middlesex is almost 50 but the energy hasn't left him. I really doubt he spent last 12 years preparing this album, but if he did, he did a great job. Hope it will sell few copies. Two thumbs up!
