5.0 out of 5 stars Probably their best effort, 19 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Self Destruction Blues (Audio CD)
If you're toying with the idea of purchasing just one Hanoi Rocks album then look no further... this one is ripe for the picking. Jam packed with perfect glam, this album's a winner from start to finish. The lipstick-loutishness of Taxi Driver will have you screechin' along 'til your Mother bangs on the ceiling; Desperados makes Clint Eastwood seem naked without a guitar (now that would have been interesting); Dead By Christmas is way-hey-hey catchy; in short, this Rocks! What a pity they were forced to disband...

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably, Just Probably Their Best., 6 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Self Destruction Blues (Audio CD)
I have adored this album from the time I first owned it on vinyl (then tape & now cd).'Loves An Injection' as one reviewer many years ago wrote "...with it's almost always eerie Hanoi 'love song' feel" is a beat driven belter in contrast to the sugar-coated 'I Want You' perfectly placed between the opener and the McCoy autobiographical (according to some sources) 'Cafe Avenue'. 'Nothing New' lightens the atmos again before we're back in well trodden Hanoi territory with 'Kill City' about you guess what... 'Self Destruction Blues' sounds like an old drowned out 20's Blues recording - and is meant to. Another Hanoi staple 'Beer And A Cigarette' drives on to another lovelorn song 'Whispers In The Dark' THE classic 'Taxi Driver' that is sooo good you will swear you've heard it before even if you haven't rounding off with the comedy 'Desperados' the tinged with manic teenage angst throw-away blast 'Problem Child' and the ever loved 'Dead By Xmas'... where did they come up with their ideas? The Definitive Sleaze recording by a Finnish band that outdid the UK & US bands who stole so much from the forever underrated Finns.

There might be some flaws with this record but I honestly can't think of any right now. Café Avenue, Nothing New, Loves An Injection, Taxi Driver, Kill City Kills... Seriously, it's a masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Hanoi Album EVER!, 25 Sept. 2000
By 
M. G. Casteleijn (Oulu Finland, native of San Francisco..) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Self Destruction Blues (Audio CD)
Hanoi rocks are an awesome Finnish band that is so often overlooked.
Cafe Avenue, Whispers in the dark, and lets not forget Dead By Xmas, which they stopped playing after Razzle was tragically killed, by a careless Vince Neil.
This is one of my favorite cds ever and i recommend it to anyone.
