You’ll hear more original albums this year, to be sure, but you’re not likely to hear one much more dedicated to the wonderful cause of metal. Well worth checking out.
On the strength of this album the lizard is indeed king.
It’s rough, and sounds a little cheap. And it sounds perfect.
for the old fans of the band this is a welcome return after a very long time. Not their best, but there are some very good Meniketti moments, which will do for me and hopefully some others.
Ultimately whether you like Reckless Love or not will largely come down to how you feel about bands such as Def Leppard, Whitesnake and their ilk. If you dig them then you’ll go a bundle on this energetic release which has enough wit and charm to carry off its more obvious thievery, but don’t expect earth-shattering originality!
