Not bad. With Jizzy on vocals it sounds more like a LOVE/HATE cd rather than "Cocked & Loaded", but there's some pretty good songs on this. I particularly like the ballad "Dreamtime" and the rocker "California". The category lists this as "Glam", but actually it's far from it. This is gritty hard rock that stays away from their occasionally glammy past. If you can accept LA GUNS without Phil Lewis you might dig this one.

I like L.A. Guns & I like Jizzy,but this album just didnt work for me,I found it a bit monotonous!

From: jarett r. Date: June 5, 2004 at 3:36
i like this album, and i like jizzy's music in general. i've communicated with jizzy over the internet, and i don't like his attitude AT ALL. but that hasn't stopped me from listening to his music.

Here! (from previous album reviews)

From: Geoff Date: January 11, 2005 at 2:04
Appropriate this is the only LA Guns album I've not already commented on. This is a good hard rock album and there are about 3 or 4 great tracks on it, but it doesn't deserve the LA Guns title. This is as much a Love/Hate CD as it is an LA Guns CD. No disrespect to any artists involved as it's a good rock CD... just wrongly titled IMO.

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 30, 2006 at 21:25
Geez, I didn't even realize Jizzy Pearl stayed in L.A. Guns long enough to record anything with them... heard some of this CD and it sounded OK, very cheaply produced though. An interesting collectible but not a classic for the ages (like the first two LAG albums were)

From: teslakid Date: May 30, 2007 at 18:29
No es malo, tal vez le faltó un poquito de produccion,como si estuviera hecho a las corridas.Jizzy no es el problema,el problema es la falta de calidad de sonido tal vez,tengo casi todos los trabajos de Tracy & Co y me gusta mucho Phil Lewis,el es la voz de L.A.Guns pero a Jizzy hasta cantando boleros me gusta escucharlo, es grandioso.Este disco tiene buenos temas,excelente voz y una gran guitarra.

From: Rambo Rockerman Date: January 20, 2008 at 12:32
The CD sounds poor and it has the lead singer from LOVEHATE who last great record was Wasted In America.

From: CC Date: June 2, 2010 at 20:42
This album has just been reissued with some bonus live tracks. Not sure if it its been remastered to sound any better though.

From: TechNoir Date: June 4, 2010 at 13:26
Great album, but the new version doesn't sound much better than the original. It has a few tracks left off from the original, but adds 5 live tracks with Jizzy.
