First off I must say that I was quite surprised when I saw this disc in a store while on holidays. I picked it up and looked at it but never bought it and after getting back home and downloading a few tracks I called up that store and asked them to hold onto it for me. When the CD arrived I immediately put it on and sat back for a bit to listen and enjoy. I was skeptical at first and was wondering if they we're still the "Classic" band that I listened to in the early 80's (they are) or we're they gone alternative. If you have any doubts about DuBrow's vocals let me assure you that they are the same raspy vocals of earlier albums.
The disc starts off with "Vicious Circle" which is a fairly heavy tune that could have easily been on Metal Health, it's a very good intro to the disc and let's you know what to expect from the rest of the disc. "Rock the House" is the stand out track for me because it shows that they are still influenced by Slade and this time they wrote a song very similar to the Slade songs that they covered on earlier albums. It is very modern sounding without and techno/sampling crap that you hear so much of nowadays. This is your basic guitar/drums/bass and vocal and that's it. If you like good heavy RnR then this is a purchase. It's right up there along side of Metal Health and Condition Critical.
