|At the time, I was lukewarm on the band's debut, too many songs running together. So I didn't rush right out to get their second album, Recipe For Disaster. But man, am I ever glad I did. Something about this disc just grabs me, and grabbed me from the first listen. The sound is stilll pretty thick, despite being down to a standard two-guitar army. The songs are just all-around catchier, although the lyrics can still be a bit repetitive, and the whole "southern" thing is a bit contrived (as it almost always is). There's really not a song I don't like on this disc. My favorites would be "Brown Street Betty," the machine-gun riffs of "Black And Blue," the heavy chug of "Another Reason" with its really cool spaghetti-western breakdown, "Days Are Numbered," and the mournful "Wyoming."|

|The first thing you hear on Recipe For Disaster is the sound of beer cans opening. We're not embarking on a fun night of bar-hopping, though. This is more like going on a binge after you lose your job or something. Brand New Sin spin tales of wasted lives and small-town misery. Loneliness, bad women, blackout drinking—and waking up to do it all over again. Or maybe not. "He could die out there," somebody says in a barely-audible bit of dialogue between songs. It's all a little melodramatic, I admit, especially when, on the last track, Joe Altier howls about his boots, his pride and his gun, in that order. Really! But what can I say, I like this disc a whole lot! Clearly, the guys were big Black Label Society fans, so like I said years ago, this is like BLS without Zakk's guitar mastery (or dumb antics). It's a little lazy sometimes, with a few choruses that just two repeating lines, or a second verse that's the same as the first verse with a couple words changed. But I dig it, dammit!|
