Sound — 10
This is Steel Panther's second album, and it is very similar in sound to their first one, "Feel The Steel". The album is full of powerful, energising riffs; crazy guitar soloing, great choruses and fantastic vocals. It sounds exactly like it was released in the late 1980s - fans of Motley Crue's "Dr. Feelgood", Ratt's "Detonator" and similar albums will love this album. Anyone who enjoys b-tchin' hard rock/metal in general will enjoy this album - Steel Panther are technically gifted musicians and have written some great songs on here.
Lyrics — 10
In one word, the lyrics can be best summed up as "offensive". In five words, the lyrics can be best summed up as "very, very, very, very offensive". I introduced a friend to Steel Panther the other day - all she could say was "that's really offensive, that's really offensive!" Did I mention the lyrics are offensive? They are very offensive. If you are at all easily offended, you have been warned. What is important to remember is that Steel Panther are as much a comedy act as they are a b-tchin rock band, and they certainly don't disappoint with the lyrics in this album. It is impossible to pick out particular highlights (there's just too many), but fans of their first album are in for more of the same, if not better. Michael Starr's vocals are as great as ever, and suit the music perfectly. I'm giving this a 10, because these lyrics are as funny as they are offensive - which really is a hell of an achievement.
Overall Impression — 10
This album really is as good as anything released during the 1980's hair metal era, and it is fair to say there is very little like it being released today. It's metal, but it's happy and fun to listen to. Without wanting to give too much away, here is a list of the songs on the album - the title's should probably tell you all you need to know. Tracklisting: 01. In The Future 02. Supersonic Sex Machine 03. Just Like Tiger Woods 04. 17 Girls In A Row 05. If You Really, Really Love Me 06. It Won't Suck Itself 07. Tomorrow Night 08. Why Can't You Trust Me 09. That's What Girls Are For 10. Gold-Digging Whore 11. I Like Drugs 12. Critter 13. Let Me Cum In 14. Weenie Ride I love this album's sense of humour - as sheer comedy, it is brilliant. The fact that the music is also brilliantly written and executed means that it is getting yet another 10/10. Anyone who doesn't like this album has no sense of humour, or poor music taste, or both - a bit like my friend mentioned above.
