Existing comments about this CD

Ok, its not in the same vain as Wicked Wonderland, which will please a lot of people, but its certainly not the return to her classic glory that Lita had been suggesting. As a long time fan of Lita's (hell I actually liked Wicked Wonderland, dont hate me), I would love to hear something akin to Stiletto or Lita, but this is not it. If anything, it has a similar vibe to Black. Its got that darker more modern influence, while still remaining melodic. To be honest, it hasnt blown me away, but I dont dislike it by any means. It may take more plays to really dig in, but I dont see it becoming an all time classic for me.

Oh, and not sure why the Personnel above is so sparse as the CD quite plainly lists the whole band line up. Full list is - Lita Ford:guitar/vocals/keyboards/tambourine, Gary Hoey:guitar/bass/keyboards, Matt Scurfield:drums, Crispin Cioe:sax, Arno Hecht:sax, Larry Etkin:trumpet

This is a huge improvement over Wicked Wonderland, and as CC mentioned it is definitely similar to Lita's "Black" cd....a bit darker, yet still very melodic. It's a worthy purchase with some really good songs and playing.....My personal favorites being tracks 1-5...good stuff.

Lita is back!!!...yeah quite an interesting release and even though i haven't listened to her previous one "WW" i could easily eyes closed bet this one is far better than that one,not because of the comments above but because when she returned to the business probably was a bit "lost" in inspiration and she drank all the stuff that was around on that time or even before(u know with all these thousands of genres and sub genres around anybody can go crazy in influences)...anyway the album has some good rocking songs in the shape of "Branded","Bad Neighborhood" & "The Bitch Is Back" some with an AOR touch in "Living Like A Runaway" & "Love 2 Hate U" to name and some with a good appealing in the shape of "Relentless","Devil In My Head","Asylum" & "Boiling Point"(Itunes catchy B/T)...not her best returning work but neither a baddie one to reject...87/100

From: Reverend Mayhem Date: June 9, 2013 at 14:22
The 32 oz. Big Gulp of Cheese Rock MILFs has somehow parlayed her minimal talents into a career, from punky '70s Runaway to Bouffant Metal princess in the '80s. No, I've never been a fan. For those of us who despise cornball Pop Metal balladry as contrived sentimentalism, her only hit (with the Prince of Darkness crooning alongside like a heartsick wallflower) represented the apex in '80s MTV poseury. Dammit, there was too much else to like back then. Now, since the consensus seems to be that her last offering (Wicked Wonderland) was a weapons grade shit storm, we get this rebound effort. Middle age has her beholden to pay tribute to her lineage in the album's autobiographical title track and employ her usual barely-passable vocal quality to the silly-assed acoustic bleat, "Mother." Otherwise it's all modern-ish guitar droning and hints of Industrial programming where the '80s glitz used to be. And because she's so hip, we get Text Era spellings like "Love 2 Hate U." Spare me. 50 / 100

"mother" is a beautiful song from a mother to their children.if a reverend can t unterstand...............................................................................................................................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: 123charpenay Date: June 9, 2013 at 16:09
maybe i m severe with the reverend but if my wife write a song about our children i imagine she will use the same words than miss lita ford and all mothers all around this world about their sweet children.

From: CC Date: June 10, 2013 at 4:13
I dont get any of Reverends comments but the last few lines make no sense. Modern guitar? Industrial drum beats? Must be listening to a different album to me then as none of these exist on this. Oh, and text speak? Prince was using this kind of song title long before "text speak", as have many glam bands over the years, so once again, makes no sense. Seems to be just a case of finding any little thing to complain about to be honest.
