it's safe to say that those days are long gone and the band appear to be more of a unit than in anytime of their history. if it was tongue in cheek that comment then fair enough.

of course no band lasts forever but those comments, in my opinion, suck


My brother is an Aerosmith fan and has been frustrated in the past by how many articles written in the 2000s can still start by banging on about bad behaviour that ended in the mid-eighties, very recent cloudiness there notwithstanding.

So I wouldn't expect it to end soon, writing about controversial behaviour provides a temptingly simple hook to win the attention of more casual readers and an easy 'narrative' arc to carry the feature to a more uplifting present. I know I've read many articles, even books about rock stars whose music I'm indifferent to or unaware of, just cos I like rubbernecking at squalid, stupid, reckless, disastrous behaviour.

What score did it get in Metal Hammer?


Would be good to see a full page ad in Kerrang, with qoutes from all these reviews. Wonder if that would be worth it though re promoting the album.

It's great to see these good notices, even if I've seen shopping lists written with more flair than some of these online reviews. ;)

"John of Violence', which has a blend of hard-hitting drums complements a chorus, that is calm and pulled off brilliantly."

"Even though the slightly heavier tracks don't make this an all-round superb record, by a band full of confidence, who have used their experience to good use"

I don't know what you mean... Those are clearly quotes they could stick on the front of the album... :P

I think he's digging at the welcoming, ultra-modern universality of the music, in a sense.

I just listened to the Japanese version of the album with my brother whilst driving back to Fife via Edinburgh after the Glasgow gig and there's something in the modernity and electronic textures of the album that perfectly soundscapes driving across glittering bridges at night, gazing at streaming tail-lights, somehow. The music has always been timeless, now it's also timely. I get the escalators on Times Square thing that way, I think. Michael Mann would love this shit. ;)

When i hear the keyboards at the end of Chutzpah it reminds of some of the synthesizer music in Heat.
