Man, these guys seem to have been in the media spotlight for as long as I can remember and I'm surprised this debut is only just hitting the streets, but I'm glad Powerage picked it up because this is a quality job from start to finish. (Turns out it was released in 2008 but label problems at Pinnacle put a stop to the push).
Million $ Reload have been on every up and coming 'ones to watch' compilation around and I was getting bored of the constant 'next big thing' stuff I was reading, and certain magazines do have a tendency to push their favourites regardless (The Answer anyone??) but it seems justified on this rare occasion.
Opener 'Superslave' comes out of the blocks with only a hint of what's to come, a good opener with a TURN IT UP attitude that leads straight into 'Tattoos And Dirty Girls' and, let's face it, who doesn't love tattoos and dirty girls?? (Yes, I'm including you ÜberVixens!!!!) which even includes a bit of GnR 'Rocket Queen' style chick having sex background noise (Yeah, it's corny but we love this shit remember?). I bet this is a killer track to play and hear live.
'Livin In The City' is a another slice of quality with riffs, catchy chorus, fist thumping energy and some Crue/Jovi type guitar work - listen for yourself, you'll love it.
'Goodnight New York' keeps up the quality and I'm thinking "Shit, these dudes might actually be as good as they say for once??"
