Album Review

Hot on the heels of Guns N' Roses' skyrocketing career in the late '80s, countless bands attempted to cash in on Axl and company's sleazy, bandana-wearing, '70s-era Aerosmith shtick — especially on the Sunset Strip.

The title track is a power ballad that would have sounded oh so sweet between "I Remember You" and "Janie's Got a Gun" back in 1989, and "Simple Man" is an acoustic ballad that treads on Black Crowes territory.
