Got this album off Napster "Law Of The Order"

Richard Black sings for this band and he's got a good voice. Sounds a little bit like Steven Pearcy but with more range. You may know this band from the bill and Ted soundtrack. They have two decent songs on that album Dangerous and Father Time. They are on this album as well (or not, again I got this off Napster)

Basically SI remind me of Guns N Roses meets Babylon A.D. Jack Ponti wrote a few of the songs and, for those of you who don't hate Jack Ponti and his paint by number choruses, you should like this.

"Every Little Lie" is one of my favorites! This is a great tune. Its a almost-ballad but its fast and has one of the best mid-tempo choruses I've heard in a while. "Father Time" is a rocker that sounds a lot like Kenny Loggins "Danger Zone" from Top Gun for some reason (opening riff is the same I think) Another good rocekr for driving with the top down.

Here's where I get confused. the song "Remember My Name" is on this disc and, isn't this the tune that House Of Lords did on the Sahara album? It sounds EXACTLY like the same thing. I'm almost thinking that my friend got the band mixed up. Richard Black sounds exactly like James Christian. Okay...good song though.

A few other sleaze type songs...some party songs....then two more gems: "Paris Calling" another dark rocker that would be great for working out or hanging out on a summer night drinking beer. and then "My City" This was in the Point Break movie and is the heaviest song on the album. It shreds! It reminds me a lot of GNR'S similar Paradise City but much more speedy and less complex. Awesome "this town sucks but I love it song" great blink and you missed it chorus. There's some other decent tracks but the ones I mentioned make up the sum of the album.

If you like this, pick up CONTRABAND with Richard Black on vox and Tracii Gunns, Share Pederson and Bobby Blotzer rounding out the rest...it sounds the same. Good stuff. Again - Sven Gali and Shark Island you can get off Napster right now if you're curious like I was....
