Possibly their best since 'Cocked and loaded'. Cannot confirm fully yet, as 'Waking the dead' is a great one too, but this is very traditional LA Guns, and they sound at their best. I hate to say it, but you don't even notice Tracii is gone, no disrespect meant towards him, but all respect to the current band, who pull off another great sounding LA Guns CD. Hey, it ain't anything new but fans are gonna love it! I do.

From: Beikes Date: September 15, 2005 at 2:18
Yes, this is kinda back to their roots, but yet with a very fine 00's production. Nowhere near 'Cocked & Loaded' though (but then again, what is?). *** About Tracii; I admitt he's a great guitarist, but his early stuff is by far the better, and the main songwriting is contributed by Phil Lewis, which also explains why albums with him on the vox, are quite the best. I would say that Phil Lewis is way more important to the band than Tracii, and Stacey Blades plays a mean axe anyways.. 9/10

Gypsy Song is downright nasty 'n dirty! Briliant!

From: Lovedrive Date: October 17, 2005 at 5:49
El sonido es mas parecido a los primeros discos (no es tan duro como el Waking the dead), pero las canciones no matan.. me esperaba mas

From: Machingunkelly Date: December 25, 2005 at 10:09
The best cd since Hollywood Vampires. Love this cd.

From: Azza Date: April 16, 2006 at 12:26
I love L.A. Guns but this one doesn't do much for me. Maybe it's just me, everyone else seems to like it, but to me this just isn't as good as their other albums. Sure the songs are okay but compared to previous efforts it just comes off sounding weak, especially with the riffs and solos - they certainly miss Tracii in that department in my opinion. Waking The Dead was so much better.

From: Azza Date: April 29, 2006 at 13:00
Okay I changed my mind, this is damn awesome...been listening to it more lately and it's grown on me alot. Stacey is not in the same league as Tracii but he's still a damn good guitarist and it's like he's brought more youth and rock n roll to the band...can't argue with that. Get this!

From: ThunderDan Date: July 13, 2006 at 22:28
I agree w/ Machingunkelly, their best since Hollywood Vampires. Great musicianship w/ the familiar LA Guns vibe. Consistent throughout, I think it's a very enjoyable CD. Just saw them 2 nights ago in my hometown. As always, they were awesome, and the songs they played from this disc sounded great live.

From: dudemetal1 Date: August 23, 2006 at 6:22
This is without question a true Sleaze/Glam classic. Makes you feel like there in West Hollywood with them...Stacey Blades turned out to be an amazing addition to the band! I rank this cd right up there with the S/T and Cocked & Loaded cds. I bought it the day it was released and still crank it on a very regular basis....If you've ever liked LA Guns...GET THIS!! It ranks right up there with "Shout At The Devil" and "Appetite for Destruction"!!

From: Rambo Rockerman Date: January 20, 2008 at 12:38
The best cd they done since 1991 Hollywood Vampires.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 3, 2009 at 21:09
A masterpiece!!! and not too old (2006)...4 sure one of their best album along with their first 3 releases.It's amazing but i can't tell is there is a single filler in here coz all the songs rock!!!...from the very opener "It Don't Mean Nothing",through "Hollywood Burning" up to "Can't Get You Anything Better Than Love"...a round album.Just buy it if you like old glam school stuff and this one 4 sure makes the Gunners a band 2 be recognized through all these years as a glam institution.95/100

From: Buitre Date: January 1, 2011 at 5:23
A very good cd from L.A. Guns...Phil's voice sounds great and I can't say I miss Tracii. For me it sounds like if it was their 4th release.

From: MetalPete1031 Date: August 1, 2013 at 13:04
I completely agree with Geoff's comments at the start. This is a great one, belonging in the same league as "Cocked and Loaded" and "Waking the Dead"! If you like either of those albums, you really need to get this one as soon as possible. Now I am going to miss Stacey Blades, for sure. Hopefully the new Grant guy can fill the rather large shoes left for him.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 20, 2014 at 22:47
A worthy follow-up to Waking The Dead, which most folks agree is one of the band's three best albums. Notan easy thing to follow, especially considering the band lost its founder and namesake, Tracii Guns. Stacey Blades is a great replacement, and although his style is a bit different, more Slash and less flash, he definitely holds his own. Really no stinkers, aside from two useless instrumentals, but at the same, not really any immediate standouts on the level of 'Don't Look At Me That Way" or "Hellraiser's Ball." Lyrically, they're in fulll nostalgia mode, trying to recapture the glory and grime of the Sunset Strip circa 1988, and being a bit too obvious about it. Still, the way I see it, there's this album, Waking The Dead and the first four discs ... and then there's everything else.
