Actually really incredible... - 88%

Vintersemestre, October 4th, 2004

If you can bring yourself to ignore the incredibly lame cover art and the fact that this band is called "PINK CREAM 69" and force yourself to believe that this is indeed NOT something you'd find in a dollar store bin next to Von Groove's latest effort, you may find yourself listening to this album.

What I was expecting was not what I got -- I received far better than anything I could have hoped for. I wanted some cheesy, lame cockrock (think Lionsheart and White Lion), but expected cheesy, lame, BAD cockrock (Motley Crue, Warrant, etc...), but what I got was a really heavy power metal album with alot of cockrock tendencies thrown in for good measure. Some songs on here are reminiscient of Black Sabbath (one track was almost identical to something Sabbath [with Ozzy] would have made), some bring to mind Bon Jovi and others make you think of Rush or perhaps a little bit of early Edguy? This is probably the best rock/metal album I've ever heard, it's really a shame that the only other albums these guys have ever done that even come close to being this good are their first and their latest.

The reason for the high score is because I personally love any albums like this; even though I'm incapable of defining what "this" really is, since there's an overlying quality about albums like this that I simply love and have no explanation for. However, this album should probably only be listened to by people who like this stuff. I would tell you to listen to this immediately if any or all of your cherished albums consist of the following: White Lion - Pride, Lionsheart - Pride In Tact, Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet, Meat Loaf - Couldn't Have Said It Better

Mentioning anything about the musicianship is pointless, since it's all rather simplistic and standard. If I had to say something about this band, I would say they are the gods of the kings of the lands of mediocrity.
