Background
Hot on the heels of 2011's 'Rockaholic' comes the latest effort from Warrant, with what's probably the most stable lineup of their career, if not exactly the most prolific. It's somewhat amazing four original members from the debut are still around, giving the band a touch of credibility in a time when most aging hard rock acts have splintered and become laughing stocks. Like the previous album this is another solid hard rock exercise, which proves the band still have the chops.


The Songs
The only issue I have with this version of the band is they sound nothing like their days with Jani Lane, with more of a predictable sound heard from a thousand other bands. It doesn't mean this isn't heavy or effective though, the title track packing a solid punch in its less than three minute running time. 'Devil Dancer' has definite 80's touches in the chorus, a quality track with a perfect blend of heaviness and melody. The album doesn't hold back and is certainly an in your face kind of affair, with obligatory ballads 'U In My Life' and 'Faded' thrown in naturally. This is a hard rock album from the past though, plenty of attitude on hand, especially on faster tracks like 'New Rebellion' and 'Choose Your Fate' which prove how heavy Warrant can still play it. There's a pureness to the album you rarely hear these days. I'd take this over Steel Panther's latest effort for example. This is the best work the band have done since 1992 in my opinion, which maybe isn't saying much, but in 2017 it's an accomplishment a band as once derided as Warrant are still around releasing music of this quality.


In Summary
Plenty to appreciate here and something which should please longtime fans of the band and even win them a few new ones with some luck. Classic hard rock like this isn't easy to find these days, so take it when you can.
