Who would have thought that curly lip Billy Idol and his guitar man Steve Stevens would bury the hatchet after all these years to record a new album together? And those who believe that the result is just a sorry effort, assembled in a hurry to refill some empty pockets, are entirely wrong. Ideed, the songs, mainly written by Idol and drummer Brian Tichy (Ozzy, Zakk Wylde) have all it takes, when it comes to Billy Idol songs: cool riffs and catchy refrains. Stevens added the required controlled aggression and co-wrote three of the 13 tracks. However, there is one fault worth mentioning: the copy protection software prevents the CD from running in computers, DVD players, combined DVD/CD players, and car players. Thus, highway karaoke is no option, unfortunately. Listening tips: the opening track "Super Ovderdrive", "Sherri" (written by Idol on his own), and "Romeo's Waiting".
