Label: Cleopatra Records
More than a quarter century since their only gold album, this once-hair-metal-identified L.A. rock squad now comprises original singer Marq Torien and three fairly new hires. These days their churn feels fairly post-grunge derived: Think the riffier side of Collective Soul or Stone Temple Pilots. "Rollover" and especially "Kin Folk" exude a Southern tinge worthy of the latter's title, and arrangements take creative detours in "Symphony" and the instrumental title cut. But the guys have the most fun at the end, spitting in your eye through Elton John's street-urchin-Stonesy "The B*tch Is Back."
