3.0 out of 5 stars One Motley Crue was more than enough, thank you very much, 3 April 2009
This review is from: Heartless (Audio CD)
One moment Dear Superstar sound as dated as Guns & Roses filler tracks (albeit with a stronger vocalist) but with Metallica-esque chugging guitar riffs; the next they play Spineshank quality sub-nu-metal that, despite their flirtations with varying degrees of rock, is always predictable with rhyming-by-numbers lyrics.

There's something about this band that feels as disappointing as a supergroup. You know how musicians egotistically put together those all-star vehicles of technically superior narcissists and end up with Brides Of Destruction, Velvet Revolver, even Audioslave, because the band has no heart or, as is often the case, the songwriters that made them individually noteworthy? Well, that's what this sounds a bit like. A technically proficient band playing mainstream rock b-sides

If I put personal taste aside I could say that they have put together a relatively inoffensive, commercially produced collection of mainstream foot-tappers' I'd be ashamed of myself though. Still, this is a hit-void by anyone's yardstick.
