Outlaw Blood - Theses guys were ok, they kinda sounded like Billy Idol. About 4 or five good tracks but some of them sounded the same. Some Black Crowes influnces - not great but worth a cut out bin price
Blackeyed Susan - Don't like old Britny Fox. Don't like Dizzy Dean. Don't like blues metal.
Roxy Blue -Awesome. Warrant wanna-bes. Funny, good vocals, dumb lyrics, cool ballads. Good looking guys who probably got into the biz just to get ass. This is a good record though. Too Hot To Handle, Times Are Changin', high points...
The Hangmen - Who are they? Please tell me.
Contraband -If you like Shark Island, then you'll like Contraband.
Southgang - The two albums were kinda dodgy. About half and half on both. The guitarwork is excellent though and Jesse Harte has a nice screech. Like a toned down Mark Slaughter. Tainted Angel has some good ballads and several good rockers. Good Cd for a small price. Group Therapy is more serious. The ballads are good but very dark. About three good rockers and one of them is kind of a neat horror/Iron Maiden "story song" called Legend of CC Road. Kinda cool. Again, this album is less produced though and the melodies aren't always there.
Crystal Roxx - I like these guys. Sleazy. They made no money as a band but this CD is like one of Crue's best. The ballads are ten times better than recent Crue shit and the rockers are mostly about sex and hookers. They're done pretty well, Richie Angelucci has a good sleaze voice but he can sing well too. "Hollywood" and "Be Mine To Satisfy" are strong points. This type of music does wear thin though and I got sick of the disc fast.
The Zoo - Never heard, any details?
Cry Wolf - Poodley AOR. Okay...like a softer early Danger Danger. Lots of keyboards. The ballads are decent but sort of gay (not to be PI). One or two good rockers. But this stuff is very light and airy. "West Wind Blows", "On The Run" are high points. These are both rockin' outlaw songs and are the heaviest and most explosive on the album. The rest is very middle of the road. Kinda manufactured.

What do you think of these acts?

Hericane Alice
Wildside
Shotgun Messiah
Lixx Array
Wild Boyz
Every Mother's Nightmare
Blonz
Dirty Blonde
Sleaze Beez
