80's Hair Metal is BACK!
on 12 April 2010
This is a great debut. These boys look and sound like they just got off tour with Slaughter and hang out at Gazzaris with Dave Lee Roth. Seriously this is a real feel good hair metal cd. If, like me, you love '80s acts such as Poison, Crue, Tigertailz, Van Halen/Hagar or even some of the newer stuff like Hot Leg then these party boyz are the ones for you. They reference all manner of Glam rock the most noticeable being The Sweet and the aforementioned Poison/Tigertailz. If you look harder then you'll find DLR and the Crue.
Yes it's cheesy lyrics all the way but the hooks, licks and riffs on display are all worth your hard earned dosh. I've not given it 5 stars as there are a couple of fillers here, that said it's immensly enjoyable stuff that will have you digging out your spandex and dayglo vest.
Forget Steel Panther, this has been done with a genuine love for the genre, they ain't looking for a fast buck and a cheap laugh you won't find the smut here either.
