Saw these guys open up for Motley and they were way heavier & more in the groove live than on this album. It seems like they were watered down and tamed in the studio. Kinda like the Black Crowes fronted by the lead singer of Fastway to me. Very good and worth checking out but if you ever saw them live this is just too polished and safe. For a minor league Skynrd though not bad at all.

I got the demo version of the first 5 tracks that they sold at the Motley Crue concert back in 1999. The demo's were heavier and Tommy Roberts was still going by the name of Tommy Laidlaw. This album does seem a little tame, but still worth checking out.

Good southern rock going on here. I threw this cd in one night at the bar when I was DJing and Sweet Leanna started playing and someone asked me which Lynard Skynard cd it came off of. Pretty funny. Any fans of Molly Hatchet, Lynard Skynard, Black Crowes, or Marshall Tucker will love this cd.

Shitty. I bought this for Steve Perry's vocal contribution and you can barely hear him in the mix. What you do here is a lame Southern rock band trying to do something that's already been done to death. Pass!

From: guru Date: December 21, 2003 at 13:26

Pretty cool albeit a little underdone...I mean it sounds like they were rushed...produced by Nikki Sixx my copy says...and it does have a great sound. Heard they were much heavier live... it's good....
