Okay I'll admit I had high hopes for this album. Anything less than awesome and I was going to be disappointed. Let's just say I'm not disappointed! The album is drawn from previous outings such as The Crimson Idol and the last 2 albums. Production values could be higher and at times the album does sound a little muddy , however...
The album does NOT suffer from any weak tracks and several storming tracks. The beginning feels confusing, but it soon settles down quickly to the WASP that we all know and love! Particular attention should be paid to Asylum #, What I can never have (possibly WASP's greatest EVER popwer ballad), Sister Sadie and Raging Storm.
Although comparisons will be made between this and The Crimson Idol, The Neon God stands on it's own as a powerful acheivement and we can only hope that part 2 mirrors and improves on what we have here.

Firstly I would like to say that i have read numerous reviews about 'The Neon God,' many of which were written in the first 24hrs of it's release. The majority of reviews have been written in a positive light but i honestly believe that to give a truly accurate account of this record you have to listen to it over a certain period of time to appreciate how superb this piece of work is.
This is Blackie at his best. I have to agree that it is very difficult not to compare this record with The Crimson Idol, but it stands up well on it's own, and does the difficult job of improving on it's predecessor.
Listening to comments on the poor production is becoming tedious. The base and drums do take a back seat a little but i believe this has been orchestred purposley and does no harm to the final product.
Darrell Roberts guitar playing is excellent and Blackie's vocals are superb. Buy this record, it rocks.
Being a Wasp fan for over fifteen years my opinion is that this could be Wasp's masterpiece. I'll wait for part 2 before i make my final decision.

Firstly i must say that the first thing i noticed about this new WASP cdwas the poor inlay booklet. Blackie could`ve really gone to town with somedark and disturbing images, but we won`t dwell on that, it`s really allabout the music and the story of one Jesse Slane. Blackie has alwayswanted to follow up the awesome Crimson Idol with another concept stylealbum; this is finally that album. Read the story first, then sit back andlet the songs take you on the journey and life of Jesse Slane. A lot offans have moaned about the production, i included have done so in thepast, certain WASP albums sound horrible. This one doesn`t. The vocals andguitars are forward in the mix, while bass and percussion takes a backseat, it may sound a little light, but we get that Lawless rasping searingvocal of old, and unlike Dying for the world, you can actually hear whathe`s singing. Using a mains conditioner, like a Russ Andrews silener,certainly improves the musical separation that many are complaining about.Anyway, enough of that, let`s get on with the album. I feel that this is amix of his best work, bits of Idol, Headless, and DFTW can all be heard onthis CD, and i for one feel that after repeated listens, this will be upthere with his finest. I`ll give it four for now, but may be back to giveit a five next week !

In listening to this new record, it really hits me: Blackie Lawless mustbe the single most underrated artist alive.
I have always been a WASPfan and I have enjoyed a musical journey with them starting from the timesof the more fun recklessness of 'WASP' and 'The Last Command' to the moreserious and thought provoking 'Headless' and 'The Crimson Idol'.
Whether you are a WASP fan or have never listened to them before, if youare looking for an album that will become an instant classic in yourcollection you must buy this release.
'The Neon God' will take you on a journey through the life of Jesse Slane,a boy who since very early on is exposed to the more cruel realities oflife. He loses his father at age 6 and his mother, who becomes a drugaddict, doesn't want to deal with him so she gives him up to a religiousorphanage where he is abused and mistreated for years.
After he manages to escape he goes out into the world trying to findmeaning to his life. Along the way he will become in touch with goodinfluences and with not so good ones, which will in the end determinewhich path he chooses in life...
Blackie Lawless is a master storyteller and you will find yourself feelingfor this character as if he was a real life person. The sounds of therecord vary from explosive relentless hard rock, to gut wrenching balladsthat will stop you dead on your track. Not a bad song in this album. Thelyrics are well written and thought provoking (I was speechless at anotherreviewers comment that the lyrics in this album make no sense), and aremasterfully matched to the story and tempo of each song.
Overall this album is a masterpiece. A collection of songs and sounds thatwill rock your bones but that will unequivocally stimulate you intellectas well. You must not miss it.

Well, having read a few reviews about this album, but making the effort to go and see the boys in Bradford before buying, I have to say, this is an amzing piece of work.
i think people who spend more time going on about the production sound etc etc are completely missing the point, stop criticising and start listening, i have been playing this CD for a few days now, and I can honestly say it gets better with every listen. The raw emotion in Blackies Voice has not waned over the years, he has to be one of the few that has matured with age, and yet lost none of the passion.
I could warble on about this for hours, but all I can say is, BUY IT!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!
