|One of the worst, documented disasters ever. No, I not just saying this to be malicious, hear for yourself, I would advise you NOT to buy a new copy. There's plenty of used copies floating around EBAY or used disc shops. Hey I just don't want you guys to get screwed. 1.0 on the SWINE SCALE

|I agree with SIXXSWINE. If you find this cd used, DO NOT pay much for it(my opinion). Phil Lewis is one of my favorite singers but his departure on this cd was not the reason. If you liked L.A. Guns before this cd, you will probably not like it! They have Phil back now and the new cd "Man In The Moon" is worth buying!!!

|If someone lists this piece of garbage on ebay they should pay you to take it! I didnt even rate American Hardcore because 1 is just too high. LA Guns owes us points for this one!

|I love L.A. Guns, but this record is horrible... I thank God they now have Phil Lewis and Mick Cripps back

|This album shows that they were trying to change with the times. They went as far as to change their name to THE L.A.Guns. Thats pretty bad if you ask me. I do have their new album "Man In The Moon" and I have to say that I am getting use to it. It's more of a funky album, but I think that they are playing what they want to on this one.
||Date: August 11, 2002 at 18:16|
|The reason for the "The" before their name had something to do with a lawsuit with their merchandise company. Anyway, this CD is a complete disappointment. "Next Generation" is an OK song, but the rest are pretty horrible!

|this album is definatley not as good as the others but its okay its my least played l.a. guns album but i dont hate it

|i perfer old la guns, but this cd is heavier and rawer than the others. i like it. i recomened it. fuck what you all say...
||Date: August 28, 2002 at 2:52|
| i agree with tomcat...i didn't like this album a bit... the beginning of the cd alone made me angry, i thought i bought a bad disc or that something was wrong with my player;.. just listen to the lyrics of the song 'pissed"...can it get any worse? email@example.com i had to relax with 'cocked and loaded'after hearing this album....

|chris van dahl and johnny crypt were in boneyard. does anyone here know whether or not boneyard ever recorded or not?
||Date: October 22, 2002 at 22:54|
|Maybe not your avarage LA GUNS, Maybe no Phil, maybe the CD should have not even been a LA Guns disc, but the cd kicks ass!! I saw them twice on this tour(and video tapped both shows) and tracii kicked ass, as well as the rest of the band, but Tracii was the spot light on this tour and CD. Now that Phil is back Tracii has sort of step back and Phil is more in the spotlight. Tracii and Phil are both great I support all they do. Check out phil's more purple than black CD, his best effort ever!

|i've now heard that the band boneyard DID record. chris van dahl was also in cherry street. i've also heard that chris van dahl was in love/hate as a bassist.

|The covers says it all, it looks like Snoop doggy dog or Gangsta rap, nothing to do with the real LA GUNS, tahnk goodness Phil is back and the "Waking up the dead" rocks!!!, this is a peace of garbage that should be trhown straight to the dustbin, its appaling and the price says it all, 3' dollars...the price of toilet roll,

|what the hell is this!!!!!!!!!! pantera going rap going shit?...thanx God i traded this for a vinnie vincent album!...i am alive was the only song that i like, but it wasn`t l.a. guns, they should have changed their name.

|I think this CD was actually just Tracii's side project "Killing Machine" rebadged as L.A. Guns! I noticed they actually used the music to two older LA Guns tunes on here as well,totally butchered them mind! Not a good album at all! Tracii`s solo album (called Killing Machine,how many times does he wanna use this name?) is similar to this album but far less shouty & a lot more like classic sounding metal!
||Date: December 23, 2003 at 9:32|
|I don't care what any f****r says. This album is excellent. It is raw and heavy. Nothing like L.A. Guns usual music but it kicks ass nevertheless.
||Date: August 23, 2004 at 10:12|
|If a band is going to change their style drastically, they should change their name. From sleaze to fleas. I wouldn't even call this LA GUNS. I remember seeing Tracii Guns walking off stage because people couldn't get into it during a concert. It's common sense that most people going to see LA Guns want to hear tunes in the vein of Guns not hardcore smut. No wonder why he never did another record in this format. If you can get past the name, you might fine a song or two to be decent.

|i like this disc but totally see why everyone hates it-it is not LA Guns in any way,shape or form. They should have changed their name. How could they have really expected any Guns fans to accept this? Traci blows my mind with some of his decisions he makes. He sticks with Guns through all this stuff then makes the best LA Guns disc in a long time(waking the Dead)-then quits the band? I'm not sure what goes through that dude's head.
||Date: August 23, 2004 at 19:57|
|Got to agree, this is not LA Guns, and calling themselves The LA Guns doesn't really help anyone out. Baiscally, who really knows what this is? Punk metal - whatever it is, it's not LA Guns we knew and love and should have been a Tracii solo project as far as I'm concerned. No, not too big on this one at all...
||Date: November 18, 2004 at 13:28|
|This album blows! I saw them live with this line up, what a let down. Chris Van Dahl has no talent or charisma. He shouldn't even be fronting a garage band nevermind L.A. Guns.
||Date: November 30, 2004 at 16:39|
|Didn't we all know this would happen? This is what happens when you give money to no talent.

|Nice experimental album, great stuff

|if you enjoy tracii guns guitar work and you like heavy music you'll enjoy this. this is one of my favorite tracii guns releases. singer reminds me of a mix between phil anselmo from pantera and zakk wylde from black label society.

|This is an awful release ...it sounds like a cheap copy of Black Label Society especially in the vocals of the former Boneyard mainman Chris Van Dahl that sounded extremely alike to Zakk's...ok some interesting moments could be "Unnatural Act","Give","Pissed","Mine" & "I Am Alive" but in an average way...70/100
