the 3rd and final installment of the JPP and the worst!! I think the drugswere now firmly in control and whilst this cd has its moments it dosn't quite live up to the previous 2. If your a perry fan there is enough to warrant interest, but it's unlikely this disc will be a frequent visitor to your disc player

My least favorite Joe Perry album. Joe and his band had a new label and a new (goofy) look. New vocalist "Cowboy" Mach Bell looks like like a reject from Twisted Sister. Then there was drummer Joe Pet, who I am sure was moonlighting in Shanana. Musically, however, there are a few gems on this disc. The title track rocks, "Woman in Chains" is a good T-Rex sounding glam ballad, and speaking of T-Rex, they do a cool cover of "Bang A Gong." Otherwise, this is Joe's most eccentric, hard to get into,

I understand that this CD isn't one of the best of the group, but is very hard of buy. Now I have all the discography of Perry as singer. I've got 5 originals albums of The Joe Perry Project!!!

From: Rockhead Date: March 25, 2004 at 8:00
Adrian-to my knowledge the Project released 3 studio albums and 1 compilation (that makes 4) what is the fifth as I dont know that 1. I have an excellent live boot of the boys.

From: MIKE S Date: March 25, 2004 at 11:49
Totally agree with Rockhead. JPPs 1st two are excellent guitar driven classic rock, but this has very little similarity to those. For AEROSMITH die hards & completists only.

Well looks like I'm in the minority here but this is actually my favorite Joe Perry album. I really dig the cool, sloppy groove throughout and "King Of The Kings" still souunds bad-ass to me even in 2004. They do a great version of "Bang A Gong" here too. I remember playing this and Aerosmith's "Rock In A Hard Place" all the time back then as they both had such a cool, sleazy back-alleyness to them.
