  1. Those who think the late 2000s are devoid of bands that know how to rock should devote three seconds to this album — they will instantly see the folly of their ways.
  2. Though there's no 'The Boys Are Back in Town' here, if it's authentication rather than retro rock you're jonesing for, catch this quartet when they roll through your burg.
  3. It’s an earnest homage to lean guitar rock with bluesy underpinnings.

    A handful of tracks--the shuffling 'Fill Me In,' the swinging 'What It Is'--work an assured swagger, but Wood never quite nails his role model’s tomcat growl or sly nonchalance.

    I've been listening to this more than any album I've purchased in recent memory. All the songs rock hard, are catchy/fun/upbeat. I've been listening to this more than any album I've purchased in recent memory. All the songs rock hard, are catchy/fun/upbeat. There's nothing gimmicky and no sappy ballads that so many bands seem to find necessary these days. They're the perfect blend of 70's hard rock, 80's hair rock and some 90's pop punk. Best of all, the drummer also happens to be the lead singer...it doesn't get much cooler than that!! Expand

    70's style hard rock, modernized and revitalized. Their best songs and harmonized guitar parts recall the anthemic glory of Thin Lizzy. 70's style hard rock, modernized and revitalized.
