I'm somewhat mixed about this album, on one hand it's a great rock record with really catchy songs, but the lack of Dave in the songwriting department is blatant. I feel Lepard's songwriting was a lot more personal, a lot more original, but despite of that I really can't doubt that this is a great album. Olliver's vocals are fantastic throughout, his higher vocal parts come off sounding a little reminiscent of Stephen Pearcy, at least to me. Overall though, I'd say this is a winner.

Long time no see
You are right indeed.
I think so, too
Hey, I still lurk around from time to time

Hey tommy, it took me a few listens to be honest, it's a grower I think
Straight Outta Hell all the way, what a song...I really think they should of included the solos like in the demo version though, they're probably some of Crashdiets bests guitar solos in my opinion.
Not really, people just end up coming out of gigs with a broken nose or some other crap they could do without. I do like some of the bands though, the less generic ones.

Azza, welcome to Japanese port!!
Because you know more new Japanese bands than me, I think you can learn Japanese in their music.
Doomo arigatoo gozaimasu
That's true, it should help me anyway...going off topic a little, but i'd like to hear more older Japanese bands...I only know a few, I tend to listen to 2nd/3rd wave Visual Kei bands

Aquiles Priester (very underated)
Shinya (not a huge fan of Dir En Grey but he is amazing)
I think Shinya of Luna Sea is also amazing drummer
That's true...he has some really good snare rolls
Another great drummer is Travis Barker from Blink 182, The Transplants, +44 etc...you don't have to like those bands to recognise his talent
