People want more lips and hips?
Same as a song they made in 1988?
Guarantee if they released and album like that now it would do nothing.

This is a great release.
Tumblin' Dominoes sounds like an Angels song with Doc singing.
 

That was kinda my reaction, too. Though I don't think an album of "All Lips n' Hips" would do nothing. I just don't think they could ever write songs like that again. 

This album is a grower for me. Great musicianship all round.

What I was kind of getting at is that an album of songs in the vein of All Lips N Hips wouldn't go down the same way today as it did then.
I have a bunch of band who I got into and ignored earlier albums, and then when I went back to those albums, some of them with songs that people froth, I haven't been able to get into the album or the songs.
White Lion, Faster Pussycat, LA Guns, Dokken, Winger, Great White, Europe. Couldn't do any of the first albums from those bands, even though I loved albums 2 onwards.
Then you have other bands I got in to late, like Harem Scarem, whose first album was easy to love.
I got in to Electric Boys after they reformed. To me All Lips N Hips is an ok, song.
I much prefer their later stuff.
I'll get 4 or 5 keepers off this new album, which is a win for me.

Well... this one has fully grown on me. The only song I'm kinda "meh" on is "Twang 'em & Kerrang 'em." But even then I won't skip it. I'm really fuckin' enjoying this album. 

Take it all with a grain of salt, because you should all know I'm fairly biased towards these guys.
