It's heartwarming to find these blue-collared '80s NWOBHM also-rans still around, at least in name, in 2012. What's more, they still make totally workmanlike bangers-and-mash heavy rock: four-square, sometimes fast ("Play to Win," "Speed"), always salt-of-the-earth. By mid-album, they're throwing in twists: calling a hell-raising "Man on Fire" "the original destiny's child"; quoting "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" in "Burning Desire"; getting talkbox-funky about a dancing queen in "Hey Suzie"; slipping some "Whole Lotta Love" psych-dub into "Mr. Indispensable." Hard not to smile at all that.
