Album Review

These Swedes have a sense of humor, and better taste than their sleazy glam metal might indicate — they took one of their album titles, Bad Sneakers and a Piña Colada, from a Steely Dan lyric, after all. On their latest effort, they're continuing to deliver what big-haired ladies and aging bandanna-over-the-bald-spot dudes want from a rock band. Big riffs, catchy choruses, and solos directly indebted to Slash's work on Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction are all over this album. Vocalist Jocke Berg shrieks like a cross between Axl Rose and Vince Neil, the rhythms are bare-bones but hard-driving, and the lyrics are all about sex and debauchery, in the most vague and amorphous way possible. There's even a power ballad — "Hope for a Normal Life" — that splits the difference between G N' R's "Patience" and Iggy & the Stooges' "Gimme Danger." This is an utterly anachronistic album, which, when one considers the aesthetic wasteland that is American hard rock in the post-grunge era, isn't really a bad thing. They do need to tighten things up a little; no glam metal song should make it past the four-minute mark, let alone five-plus. But there's enough fast, punchy, cowbell-driven tracks like "Remove My Brain" and the almost thrashy "Into Debauchery" to make Beg for It a fun, dumb good time for fans of the band or the genre.

Vocalist Jocke Berg, guitarist Silver Silver, bassist Martin Sandvik, and drummer Magnus Andreasson recorded an album titled It's Only Rock 'N' Roll and released it on their own label in 1998, attracting praise from Motorhead's Lemmy....
