This CD is outstanding!!! There really ISN'T a song on it that I DON'T like. Phil Lewis' vocals take these vintage 70's songs and brings them ROARING back to the present! My top picks: Search and Destroy (Iggy Pop and the Stooges), Marseilles (Angel City), Wheels of Steel (Saxon), and Moonage Daydream (Bowie).

I have to admit I wasn't expecting alot from this album but bought it anyway because I have all their previous stuff.Man, was I suprised.They really did some solid versions of these songs.I am a huge Aerosmith fan, but Nobody's Fault sounds like it was written for the Guns to do.There version of Saxon's Wheels of Steel is also great.I have to agree with the previous reviewer in that the Guns are sounding better now, or at least heavier than when they started.I wouldn't normally be a fan of a band rerecording an album but I'd love to hear Hollywood Vampires done with this heavy sound.Kind of ironic though that there are two bands out with Traci's name and he's not playing with either one.

LA Guns is a band that is as raw as Guns 'n' Roses and as pop metal as Poison yet never seemed to enjoy the depth of success those two bands enjoyed. Why? Bad promotion? Not shaking the right hands? Who knows? The bottom line is this is a band that should not be ignored. And, I'm not ignoring them!
After their last two new studio albums blowing me away, I was sad to hear Tracii left LA Guns to look for a "better gig" and now finds himself with Nikki from Motley Crue in Brides of Destruction. Well, the Brides shot themselves in the foot and won't be joining the KISS/Poison tour this summer and likely will be playing to the same venues LA Guns are. And, their record is horrible compared to this one! That is what you call rock 'n' roll justice!
The album opens up with Rock 'n' Roll Outlaw originally performed by Rose Tattoo. First, the production sounds great as does the band. This is very "Hollywood Vampires" quality. This also translates well live as they performed this and the next cut live a few weeks ago when I caught the guys in Arizona.
Second is I Just Want To Make Love To You, a Foghat cover. This, for my money, is the best song on the record. Stacey Blades, the new guitarist, sounds fantastic here. I wonder how Tracii feels being replaced with someone who can come close to filling his shoes? Maybe he'll write a poorly produced punk song about it for the next Brides flop.
Tie Your Mother Down by Queen is next. Pretty cool. Warrant did this on their cover record a few years back. Guns have a bit of a different take on it. Either way, it rocks!
Until I Get You by Hanoi Rocks is next. Cool sound. Hanoi Rocks is another band that never got the respect they deserved.
Wheels of Steel by Saxon follows. As Phil would say, "Very nice!

What's good about it?
L.A. Guns pay homage to a wide range of rock artists. There are the legends; Aerosmith's funk, blues laden "Nobody's Fault," Queen's catchy "Tie Your Mother Down," David Bowie's strangely worded "Moonage Daydream" (must have been during his Ziggy Stardust faze), and Led Zeppelin's "Custard Pie" (every guy's favorite pastry). There are the second tier legends; Saxon's hooky, leather spiked arm band and belt emoting "Wheels of Steel," Foghat's "I Just Want to Make Love to You" (might I add that L.A. Guns makes Foghat worth listening to), and Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man" (just as trippy as the original, but with added acoustic guitars that give more emotional depth).

There are the glam/punk legends; Iggy Pop and the Stooges' "Search and Destroy," and Hanoi Rocks' "Until I Get You" (whose inclusion doesn't surprise me, because every L.A. glam band from the eighties cites them as an influence). And finally, the obscure cult legends, Angel City's "Marseilles"(it has that whole Hanoi vibe going on), and Rose Tattoo's rock anthem "Rock and Roll Outlaw." As a special treat, L.A. Guns throw in two original live tracks, "Revolution" and "Don't Look at Me That Way."

Anything bad?
Who hasn't covered "Tie Your Mother Down"?!

Bottom Line
L.A. Guns stay true to the original versions, but still manage to put their signature on them. It's bizarre, but in recent years L.A. Guns sound much better than they did back in the day (vocally and musically).

One of the best cover Cds you MUST have....believe me. LA GUNS made an excellent job pickin'the songs, and Phil did his best in vocals. Songs like WHEELS OF STEEL, RNR OUTLAW and TIE YOUR MOTHER DOWN are the most representative jewels from this album. The guitar job is decent enough to say TRACII WHO??.............ONLY ONE PROBLEM: The sound isnt the best when you compare it with HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, so the production is slightly better than the WAKING THE DEAD CD. Could you imagine the production of DEF LEPPARD'S YEAH! IN THIS ALBUM?? WOW!!! But the songwriting of the songs and their performance deserve the oportunity to get it.

A decent voice, the raw guitar job and the Riley drumms recreate a bunch of great classics for the hard rock lovers: LA GUNS die hards and casual listeners. 4 stars for the vampires

Rock on !
