The late great Jani Lane of Warrant fame fronts this supergroup and what an album it is just a hook fest of 80's glam/pop metal I love it!!
J. Hollis

2008's Love the Sin, Hate the Sinner (brilliant title!) is the debut release from Saints of the Underground, a side project of some of the "hair metal" scene's (mostly) minor players. The only band member who is reasonably well known is vocalist Jani Lane, formerly (currently?) of Warrant. The rest of the band is made up of drummer Bobby Blotzer (Ratt), bassist Chuck Wright (Giuffria/House of Lords), and journeyman guitarist Keri Kelli.

Love the Sin, Hate the Sinner sounds exactly like what you'd expect an album by a bunch of aging hair metallers (and I use this term with deepest affection) to sound like. It's upbeat, melodic in a way that only an 80's metal band can be, and rocks just like your old school Ratt or Warrant album would. Kelli serves up some great guitar riffs, the rhythm section keeps things pounding, and Jani Lane's voice is about as good as it has ever been. I know the guy has some personal issues, but they don't appear to be affecting his voice at all. Alongside upbeat melodic rockers like Dead Man's Shoes and Signs of Life is a pair of interesting covers. The first is a faithful rendition of Tom Petty's American Girl and the second is a surprisingly well executed version of the Rolling Stones' Moonlight Mile. The album closes with an uncredited song called Jimmy. There's nothing about this track in the liner notes, but it sounds an awful lot like a Thin Lizzy song, which is always a good thing.

If you still love listening to your old Warrant, Ratt, Poison and Motley Crue CDs, you'll definitely want to check out what the Saints of the Underground have to offer. Love the Sin, Hate the Sinner will have you partying like it's 1989.

Warrant? Not really. This is a bit less edgy then dog eat dog but not much. This collection has a little of warrant's last three and equal amounts of it's own mid tempo arrangement. Very tight and well produced from the first song to the last. One repetitive song that was still musically strong enough to like. Not a lot to complain about. After hearing about Lane falling back off the wagon I was skeptical. After listening to it I'm left waiting anxiously for a follow up. I can only hope.

I am not much of a commentator, but just gotta say that this cd is Awesome. I cannot get enough of it. Beautiful guitar whizz KERI KELLI smokes and inspires. Jani Lane has become one of my favorite singers because of this cd, all the guys come together beautifully. No let down here, great great stuff. This is Rock n Roll at it's best.

Jani Lane, Bobby Blotzer, Kerri Kelli, and Robbie Crane have joined forces here and created a fun 70's influenced rock record with a modern pop metal twist. "Good Times" is one of the coolest songs I've heard this year. A must buy.

Jani Lane picks up right where he left off in BACK DOWN TO ONE. Strong roots influences from the prolific songwriter like the Thin Lizzy vibe of "Jimmy" or T-rex touches to "Good Times". Best Track: Tomorrow Never Comes, a coulda' been certified hit for Warrant. Hate the track order on this collection, but it is worth the MP3 download price to see that Lane had one more good effort in him before his sad, disappointing and untimely death. Oh yeah, RATT's rhythm section ain't too shabby either to drive this train.

I have not been able to quit listening to this disk if I do take it out it's not out for long. Jani sounds great his solo disk was great but this
disk blows it away and Keri's guitar sounds great as always(ck out the old Big Bang Babies)and Bobby and Robbie hold it down great. Bobby's drum
work on "American Girl" is amazing.I love "All in how you wear it" it will
make anybody that is an old "Glam Rocker" stand proud and "Jimmy" has such an old Warrant feel to it if you close your eyes you'd swear it came off of "Dirty Rotten Filthey Stinken Rich".Bottom line if you was into any of theses guys before you will love it so buy it and Love the Sin and Love the Music!

I purchased this cd earlier this week and I'm enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would (truly an understatement), as it greatly benefits from the songwriting pair of Jani Lane and Keri Kelli. Blotzer gets a few song writing credits on here as well (with Lane/Kelli credits on those songs as well). Mix in two well done covers and you get an album worth well beyond the purchase price. Stand out tracks for me are Exit, Bruised, and Moonlight Mile. Those three songs I honestly can't get enough of. Good times is also catchy tune I'm sure is a stand out for many folks, and the rest of the tracks are all solid, very good songs. I was delightfully impressed. I wish I had bought this album years ago.
