It’s great to hear from these guys, back in the studio and touring again….4 years was too long for the fans who’ve been around for over a decade and have seen CoC transform and streamline down to the core members. No, this isn’t a rehash of Technocracy or Blind and sure isn’t a sell out like so many other bands who bridged the 80’s and 90’s…it’s a great progression that just adds to that thick-as-a-slab, mainlined-whiskey with marlboros sound that they’ve perfected. Good luck to Reed Mullin & a quick recovery from surgery. Can’t wait to see you back on stage with Pepper, Mike, and Woody… The Mule Rocks! So doesn’t this CD..so buy it!! Hell–buy all their CD’s…these guys deserve the royalties — they influenced most of the bands that people consider “heavy” today.
