Ouch. It's painful to think that some people consider this album a "classic" BACK IN BLACK was a classic. MACHINE HEAD was a classic. APPEITITE FOR DESCRUCTION was a classic. This is, um, well, not!
Cheesy riffs and guilty pleasures are one thing, like 80s L.A. Guns and Cinderella, but when a band is this cliche and this uninspired, you can see how Nirvana kicked-ass when there was a time when there were just too many of these types of bands cloging the blood-lines of radio/Muchmusic/MTV.
As usual there a couple good tracks on here, but the rest just sounds like it was made by robots peeling potatoes in the army backrooms, in other words, boring. Sorry.
Please don't call this a classic or them a hungry band, unless you afix the term "money" before it. This did not a pay-off by any means. As far as the scarce good songs, they turn in a great feel-good ballad in "Don't Walk Away" and great hooks in "Naughty Naughty", and "Under The Gun" is a rocker-ballad type, and whenever bands do these, and do them right, they sound great.
There's cheese, then there's grease. Guess what I found!? 3/11
