Tooth & Nail

Sometimes you have to hope that you can’t judge a album by the cover. Here we have a cheezy Heavy Metal type illustration like a bad airbrush job on the ’70s space age party van of your worst nightmares. You have computer type listing song titles like “Shut Your Mouth” and “Pulp Fiction,” and tag lines like… More Rock Power… so, let’s listen, shall we? Perhaps it’s rock ‘n roll. Upbeat and energetic, with that slick, almost perfect production that can steal the reality away. Guitar heavy riff riding alternative nation kids getting off on the aggressive powers of college radio rock stars. This could be a hit at your next keg party… they even say “Peace, out.”
