I’ve been listening to Lordi for a while and although this album isn’t bad…in fact far from it. It’s just very clear listening to it that Lori was going through an experimental stage when making this album. From the sounds of it the music seems to remain intact for the most part, the only change being an attempt to expand their skills muscially.
The album is hit and miss really. Half of the album is pure gold, ranking right up there with the best of there songs. Sadly the other half falls short and unfortunately must be filed into the “music by numbers” category. However, again, this shows they are trying to find what works and what doesn’t.
If you’re curious about the band I would sugguest picking up GET HEAVY first. Not only is it their debut album, but it still ranks as the prime example of what is LORDI, and that is monster rock and horror themed love ballads.
