  • Summary: The second album for the Los Angeles band features The Darkness' Justin Hawkins and Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows as guest singers.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 5
  2. Negative: 1 out of 5
  1. Soft metal album that challenges Whitesnake, Bon Jovi and Van Halen. Funny...I think.
  2. Enjoyment of this LA tribute act's wilfully non-PC parody of '80s hair metal entirely correlates with one's familarity with Poison and Faster Pussycat's liking for double--often single-entendres. [Jul 2009, p.117]
  3. 60
    It's funnier than the Crue. And that's no mean feat. [Jul 2009, p.106]
  4. As David St. Hubbins said, "It's such a fine line between stupid and clever," and Saenz's locker-room humor wears thin quickly. Even cameos from Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Nelson's Matt Nelson, the Donnas' Allison Robertson and Brett Anderson, and the Darkness' frontman Justin Hawkins can't keep the same dick joke interesting for 40 minutes straight.
  5. An exercise in taking a joke way too far.

    Steel Panther maybe the Motley Crue on crack, but their major-label debut is definitely a record you would want to listen to again and again until either your eardrums get numb or until you're just plain old sick and tired of listening to the record!!!! Expand

    If you asked someone why they didn't like this, they'd probably say "The jokes are crude, they're just a parody band" Forget that. The melodies are catchy, the music is well performed. And it has one thing that a lot of rock music lacks today, you can sing along to it! Have you ever listened to Ratt, Warrant, Motley Crue, Danger Danger, or Poison? If you have, and you like them, then you can't go wrong with this band. Expand

    Ignore NME - they always talk crap anyway. Dead funny and really enjoyable!

    Steel Panther have come up with a vulgar yet hilarious album that is a guilty pleasure to sing along with. Starr writes out of control lyrics about drugs and girls, Satchel writes the best riffs to go with them. Expand

    About twenty minutes of this cliched and self indulgent garbage was all I could stomach.
