Review Type: 

If you’re into glam metal, than this is just your thing I guess.  Gene The Werewolf – who persuaded these guys into this name? – play no-nonsense, eighties glam rock. From the instance I put this album on, my foot was tapping along with the songs.  It’s all so catchy, and of course we’ve all heard it before, but it’s so damn good…

They’ve put in just the right amount of guitars, drums, keyboard, you name it, they’ve got it.  Don’t expect farfetched lyrics, these guys sing about women, love, partying.  No hard sought lyrics, but just straight rock’n’roll lyrics.

And the fact that Mr. Gene The Werewolf – aka Jon Belan their lead singer and lead vocalist, sounds a lot like Paul Stanly might be helpful as well.  Some of their songs even remind me of Kiss.  You might also hear some similarities with The Darkness.To say this is already their third album, but the first who gets an international release. Come on, these guys deserve better.
