Living proof of the fact that you're never too old to Rock.

I agree with the press on this album. It is indeed a "full on anthemic Metal album indulging in modern heaviness, without neglecting Dee Snider's Twisted Sister roots". Although my first instinct was that this is perhaps too heavy for me, after a few listens I really started to like it, so my advice is that you'll probably think it's interesting on a first listen, but after a few more it'll suck you right in.

Opening with 'Lies Are A Business' is something of a political comment. It's a bit "digga-digga", but the blistering guitar that hits you just seconds from the start, and the harmonized guitar work found within, will keep the traditionalists like me rather happy. 'Tomorrow's No Concern' is similarly heavy, although the hook in the chorus will definitely sink deep in, and yet it also reveals Snider to be a talented, powerful vocalist in perhaps a way not usually thought.

It's all very macho with songs like 'I Am The Hurricane', 'Become The Storm' and 'Roll Over You', and also a bit USA-centric at times as well (see 'American Made'). However, this is Dee Snider for Christ's sake, not some lily-livered Emo!! One of my favourite tracks is 'Dead Hearts', a modern love song which captures the way we all know many human relationships are messed up.

I'm not a fan of Snider's propensity to attack other musicians in the press for publicity, so he started on the back foot with me. However, I have to admit that I think he has produced an album that will be loved by fans of old-school Metal groups like Judas Priest and Doro as well as enthusiasts of more modern, heavier bands, several of which guest on this release.

Dee Snider was himself surprised, apparently, that he has given birth to such a behemoth at this late stage of his career. I guess this is living proof of the fact that you're never too old to Rock!
