5.0 out of 5 stars Shining brightly, 12 Oct 2010
This review is from: Another Night In The Sun (Audio CD)
The original 80's Hanoi Rocks made Michael Monroe a cult hero, but on the verge of true stardom, things ended in disaster and tears, and decades of hard work and bad luck followed. A solo-career died a death when he refused to play the fame game, and the fiery, Little Steven endorsed punk combo, Demolition 23 was simply too ahead of it's time, and suffered from problems with guitarists. Eventually Michael returned to Finland to produce a chain of increasingly irrelevant hard rock albums, always rocking like a natural, but never quite fullfilling the expectations. Even an unlikely reunion with old Hanoi-guitarist Andy McCoy failed to produce any truly remarkable results. Which makes it all the more amazing that less than two years after they gave up on the Hanoi-reunion he has an international record deal, name musicians to work with, and a Jack Douglas-produced studio album in the works. Most amazing of all is that this relatively quickly assembled new band actually delivers the goods, and then some.
Recorded in Tavastia, this warts and all live album explodes out of the speakers, and one can't help but marvel at the sheer energy the music conveys. Wildhearts Ginger and New York Dolls' Steve Conte make a seasoned yet enthusiastic guitar duo, ex-Hanoi Sami Yaffa on bass and Karl "Rockfist" on drums providing rock solid backing for them to riff and solo over, while MM has a perfect voice for rock with punk & garage leanings. The sound is awesome, everything is clear, yet the rawness this kind of music requires isn't sacrified in the least.
And when the setlist features choice cuts from Hanoi Rocks, Michael's solo & Demoltion 23 catalogs with Stooges, Johnny Thunders, Dead Boys & Damned covers, along with two brisky new numbers, no fan of streetwise rock and those bands can't go wrong with this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smell the sweat!, 27 Mar 2011
By 
S. Jackson "bassman" (Yorkshire, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
If you like sweaty, dirty, sleazy rock n' roll then this is for you. Fantastic atmosphere caught live on cd by a band made up of some of rock n' roll's finest.
You can't go wrong!
