If you really want to know how BB sounds buy their latest album "Making enemies is good" grrrreeaat album!!

From: rocknutter2001 Date: August 15, 2002 at 10:40
great debut album played sleazy rock n roll pity it was realeased in the stupid fucking grunge era if they had realeased this album in the 80s they would have been stars

From: Kryiis Karl Date: January 17, 2004 at 5:10
The grunge era was not more stupid than the LA Glam era. What is stupid is the fact that people need mood to decide what they have to listen to. There are good things and bad things in every existing styles. Nobody forces you to be a cow or to reject a style entirely. I like Grunge, I like Stoner, I like blues, I like Pop music, I like Glam and so many other things you can fit into a determined style... Wherever you classify Backyard Babies, they are ver very very good. Sweden rules the rock now

From: love metal Date: January 22, 2004 at 15:35
give them hell Kryiis Karl AMEN!!!!!!!!! anyway backyard babies are a great metal band with great metal songs

From: rnr addicted Date: February 10, 2004 at 20:26
great sleaze-punk-glam shit about it........but the other albums????????anyway they are fukin great too especially total13....and i'm curious 'bout the new record......

From: Aero Force Mike Date: February 21, 2004 at 21:42
I don't like the last two albums these guys have done, they've basically just gone total punk (not my thing at all), but here it's non-stop sleaze glam. Throw Faster Pussycat, The Throbs, Cats in Boots and Shotgun Messiah into a blender and you'd probably get something resembling this. Awesome album... they're very different now; they're no longer the long-haired, leather jackets and cowboy boots-wearing wannabe LA rockers seen here, so glam fans be careful, but definately check out Total 13.

From: shine69 Date: May 2, 2004 at 5:32
One of the best new bands out there ! Shouldn't this be in the Glam/Sleaze catagory though ?

From: shine69 Date: May 2, 2004 at 5:34
that is........ it's not on that list

From: Dean Date: May 2, 2004 at 22:47
I don't agree with the "total punk" comment- they've always had a slight punk vibe going anyway. The new stuff is just an extension of what they used to do. Hell- they used to do Social Distortion and Misfit covers right from the beginning. One of the tunes on the new album is called "Friends" and is a total sleaze anthem with guest vocals from Tyla(Dogs Damour) and Michael Monroe(Hanoi Rocks) As far as the look-90% of the people who used to have long hair don't anymore. 9/10

From: Uncle Salty Date: May 29, 2004 at 8:05
What happens with their other albums, they have edited more albums than this one. I haven't heard this album but I have their Total 13 and it's fuckin' awesome. It's very sleaze and glam influenced. They sound a bit punk rock too but so did GNR when they appeared (remember songs like Reckless life or You're Crazy). Also look for their album "Safety Pin and Leopard skin" in wich they do a cover of the song "Babylon" from Faster Pussycat. They also have a single co-written by Michael Monroe.

From: GlennVanWiddle Date: August 17, 2004 at 18:02
Buy Total 13 now!!! It will change your life! Blows away every single punk band on the planet, and most of the rock bands too

From: Cotton C. Lover Date: August 31, 2004 at 18:32
The cover of Faster Pussycat's Babylon can also be found, mixed (quite well, actually) with Beastie Boys' Fight for your Right to Party, as a hidden bonus cut at the end of Total 13.

From: Andii Vamp Date: September 13, 2004 at 2:34
Must be just on an american release then Lycan as i have the UK version and there is no bonus tracks at the end of Robber Of Life on Total 13 mate. Loved Backyard Babies!!!

From: Malte rehnberg Date: September 29, 2004 at 12:59
This Band Really Sucks... They can't play or anything... I'm NOT proud to come from the same country as these wanna bes... shame on them

From: Date: April 18, 2005 at 11:23
I don't get the Guns-N-Roses comparisons. There's nothing about these guys that make them as good as G-N-R. they don't have the attitude or the talent that G-N-R had. Pretty uneventful music here folks.

From: Aero Force Mike Date: June 26, 2005 at 21:09
When I said "total punk" I misphrased that, I meant they've changed their sound for a more modern pop-punk influence sound, like The Wildhearts have geared towards too. I love old punk stuff like The Vibrators, but a chunk of the material on Stockholm Syndrome (tho Enemies had its moments) just felt like modern commercial pop-punk. As for the comment on their looks; was just trying to be more descriptive in my comment on how they did a near 180 degree change after this record to inform new fans.
