Well, I've heard a lot worse...2004年12月10日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
Truth to tell, this isn't the worst rock record I've ever heard, or even the worst hair metal album. But it's no great shakes either. Andy McCoy's songs aren't bad, but they sound a bit formulaic, as if he just turned on the McCoy Songwriting Machine and cranked 'em out. (Except Hanoi's "Don't You Never Leave Me," of course. I guess he's determined to get a hit out of that song somehow.) They're certainly not as good as his Hanoi Rocks tunes. The biggest problem is vocalist billy g. bang! (that's how he spells it), who can't seem to decide if he should ape Michael Monroe and the New York Dolls' David JoHansen or do the usual screechy hair metal thing. (For the record, he's better at the former.) Too bad - with Lords of the New Church bassist Dave Tregunna in the lineup, and Dogs D'amour guitarist Jo Dog added to the touring version, there was a lot of potential here. But, alas, it was never realized. And the reviewer below is correct: Andy McCoy's solo album Building on Tradition has it all over this record.
