|I haven't listened to this one in a couple of months, but I really like how they've written very catchy blues based rock songs. They're unique in that they've replaced all of the guitar solos from their original album with SAXOPHONE solos of all things. High points are the opener 'I'd Stay A Million' and the closer 'Sweet Little Rock N' Roller'. If you like your vocals more along the lines of Quirboyish (I only stress 'ish'), then you should dig this. Well written stuff. 8.5/10

|I agree with the above post except with the closer question. There is a hidden track that was written by Dizzy Dean Davidson for Joan Jett. She rejected it and DB got it. Rebel Kid is the title, I believe. That one's great. A little out of character for DB, but still awesome. I think that this music is cut out of the Dogs D'amour cloth, personally. Balladeers, ya' know?

|btw, this CD was produced by Sammi Yaffa of Hanoi Rocks. Had a bunch of guest appearances including members of Rocks who were recording in the same building at the time. You can catch an interview with them here http://www.glitzine.net/intervjuer/08-97dogtown_balladeers.htm

|The above post states it all. The bands mentioned there - Dogs D'Amour, Dizzy Dean's Blackeyed Susan days and Hanoi Rocks - this is what this reminds me of. I hate them all and I hate this. Sorry for the brutal honesty, but again this just sounds like lifeless and completely uninspired trash. IMO.

|Given their name and album title, I was really expecting some very underground English-styled melancholy rock in the vein of Dave Kusworth, The Jacobites and of course, The Dogs D'amour. Instead it's of the more upbeat and commercial style adopted by bands such as Blackeyed Susan (the band they most closely resemble IMO). It's largely good, a few tracks are in fact great (such as the opener) but not as deep, poetic, dark or introspective as they would have you believe. 7/10

|They play bluesy hard rock in the vein of The London Quireboys and Black Crowes with a bit of Dog's D'Amour thrown in. The lead vocalist sometimes has a Rod Steward influence in his sound. "I'd Stay A Million" was a favorite track of mine...
