Seems like the old war-horses from the strip have re-discovered the joy of playing and recording. Another album already! A rather good un’too, bettering the efforts displayed on the weak; Man in the moon. This is actually their best album since the classic Hollywood Vampires, and Waking the dead contains many songs that will touch the heart of an old sleazy rocker. What about tough-riffing opener, Don’t look at me that wah, or the spooky: Frequency? The gutsy rock of Revloution, City of Angels or Psychopatic Eyes, brings back my enthusiasm for the band, and the last track, Don’t You Cry (no relation to the other Gunners…) is amazingly the albums best track!! Hey, how about putting it out as a single? It shouldn’t be buried as the last song on the album, that’s for sure. A modern classic! Waking the dead also contain a rather beautiful song, called The Ballad, and it’s a,…well, a ballad….Check out the Rory Gallagher riffing ,”borrowed” from: A Million Miles away. All in all, Waking the dead signals L.A Guns return to form, and hers’s to the next one!

Highlights: Don’t you cry, Revolution, The Ballad, City of angels
