I felt like this may be one of those albums where I really get a "You had to be there" vibe. I think my teenage self would have loved to hear this, however I wasn't born until 5 years after this album released. It just has that teen angst vibe to it to me. The lyrics are a bit on the immature side, (Fuck Like A Beast anyone?) but they're not overly cheesy and can totally see someone who grew up with this album have that bit of nostalgia for it. I definitely do from some of my more emo music of the 2000s that's more cringe than this. The guitars are heavy for the glam metal of it's era and never feels out of place. Maybe akin to a heavier Kiss. I don't really have much to say otherwise, each song really felt simple with no overly memorable riffs or melodies but I can't say I had a bad time with this one. Though I wasn't a fan of their cover of Paint It Black, didn't suit them.
