Album Review

Not the convoy of survivalist glam necessary to lure back the public the band annoyed after the disgruntled and over-hyped Leisure Noise, Gay Dad's sophomore LP goes for a lo-fi yet more sonically complex approach and hits another brick wall of Queen-tailored rhetoric and pyrotechnic rock anthems.
