4.0 out of 5 stars Rough and more than ready!, 11 July 2006
This review is from: Crystal Pistol (Audio CD)
As rock's heart grows strong once again, the arteries are flowing with the impurities and antibodies that create their own mutations. Crystal Pistol's brand of sleaze rock is the equivalent of four packs a day and fifteen cream doughnuts to wash them down. It's raw, dangerous and oh so delicious.

The songs, whilst lyrically crass and ludicrous, rock with the right amount of sarcasm and disdain. Loving someone like a locomotive is of course, only slightly more ridiculous than loving someone like a reptile (see Motörhead) and singing a song like Everybody Hates You When You Love Rock N' Roll, can only be achieved with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

These songs are indicative of the approach. Crystal Pistol are unashamedly embracing the spirit of their heroes, and echoes of the New York Dolls resonate along with distant tributes to everyone from The Dogs D'Amour to The Stooges. Put on dirty clothes, rough up your hair and enjoy!
