Not quite sure i get all the 5*s,
This review is from: This Is Gonna Hurt (Audio CD)
After browsing through amazon looking for a few new cds/bands, I bought this one - particularly after reading all the 5* reviews.
Yes, its a good album, but not sure I see it as 'great'. The first 3 songs are good, get the album off to a good start. Certainly not like the Crue - for some reason I kept thinking about some of the later Lost Prophets albums. After that its a bit up and down... the song 'Oh My God' is like something from a disney film - cringy. Sure the lyrics "foreclosing on their dreams" is in there. Never thought I would hear "foreclose" in a metal album.
That said, when its good, its strong. Track 4 'live forever', track 1, track 6 are the best... definitely individual tracks I will go back to. Not sure about some of the rest....
Would have been 3.5*s if I could. Rounded up to 4 for Mr Sixx - good memories of the 90s :-)
