Bought this when it came out and love it.........they've had some quality stuff released over the years, very melodic and good tunes. They used to be a band called Razzle back in the 'hair metal' days and THAT was some great stuff too!

Yea! This is REALLY good! Always enjoyed Lits tongue in cheek approach and this certainly doesn't dissapoint.

 

But a June 2012 release? Not any notice or fanfare ANYWHERE on this...

 

I went on about it a little bit somewhere here on the forum - probably in the first spins thread? Can't remember. A few months later I still think it's pretty good and there are a handful of excellent tracks (you MUST check out the last 2), but also admittedly there's a few weaker ones. I'll dig up the score I threw at it:

 

1. C’mon - cool anthemic chorus on an okay song - 7.00

2. You Tonight - I don't know if it's cut against their will, or what, but I hate the cut part - 6.00

3. Same Shit, Different Drink - pretty terrible to be honest - 4.50

4. Miss You Gone - good, catchy modern rocker - 7.50

5. The Broken - solid anthem, but just not great - 6.50

6. She Don’t Know - good modern rock ballad - 7.50

7. Nothing’s Free - okay rocker - 6.50

8. You Did It - very average tune with a half okay chorus - 6.00

9. Partner in Crime - pretty typical modern rocker, but I like the chorus hook - 7.00

10. Here’s to Us - nice sentimental tune… sweet song - 7.50

11. The Wall - really great song with a killer hook - 8.50

12. Right This Time - killer modern melodic rock closer - 9.00

 

TOTAL SCORE - 70%
