Ugly Kid Joe first burst on to the scene with their breakout hit "Everything About You" from their 1991 EP "As Ugly As They Wanna Be" a song which would launch the band in to the mainstream, the iconic video of the band playing on the beach would go on to get heavy rotation on MTV(when they actually played videos) even during the height of grunge it was guaranteed that video would only be a few videos away from its next airing, the resulting album "America's Least Wanted" continued the bands success and would feature another successful hit in the shape of a cover of the Harry Chapin song "Cats In The Cradle". The band would go on to release two further albums 1995's heavier sounding "Menace To Sobriety" which was followed a year later by 1996's "Motel California". However neither album could replicate their earlier success and the band would call a halt in 1997. The band quietly reformed in 2010 without much notice from the music press who once drooled over the band, now 2 years after reforming they are back on the road touring and have released a new EP "Stairway To Hell"

Thankfully it's the 1997 line up that has reformed as it includes drummer Shannon Larkin who joined the band in 1994 and was in part responsible for their heavier sound on the later albums. The album continues the bands heavier trend as it opens with the first single from the album "Devil's Paradise" which has frontman Whitfield Crane delivering a sinister sounding vocal over heavy sounding guitars, the song might be heavy but it does have a nice funk edge to it as well. On the Track "I'm Alright" Crane summons his inner Bon Scott towards the middle of the song as the band deliver an AC/DC-esque breakdown, it shows that Crane has always had an underappreciated vocal delivery.

UKJ have always been sarcastic and fun. They poke fun at the image of metal. Underneath it all are some true players. Stairway to Hell is a devilsh reintroduction the band. Is it their best work? No, that honor still belongs to America's Least Wanted. This ep ROCKS anyway. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Every track is killer. Cute cover. Lyrical fantastica. Lovely vocal talent. HEAVY RIFFAGE. This album reminds me of just about every one of my days, in one way or another.

I always loved this band. The new music is a great addition to their catalog. Go on and give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
I hope they put out some more music soon. Also check out Little Caesar's latest music. Another great band that got overlooked.

What can I say but,...... Ugly Kid Joe picks up where they left off. Whitfield Crane has one of the most distinguished voices in all of hard rock. Some more leaders of the pack when they quit producing music together. I'm glad they've returned and in such great form!

Supercool CD (but short! - only 6 songs in there for you) with various and delicious hard-rock styles, yes they're still alive! I don't regret my purchase at all, fast international delivery, it can't be found (yet?) in France, merci!

New Ugly Kid Joe music is powerful and modern, but lyrics are a bit sophmorish for my taste. Highlight is" I'm Alright."
