Great CD. Bit of a slow starter, though. Opener was ok, kind of a modern Bon Jovi anthem style song, next 2 were the weakest IMO, sounded a bit dated to these ears, but I can see lots of melodic rock fans digging them. Picked up at track 4 and never looked back. But its cool...I'd rather have a CD start slow and end strong anyway than start strong and end with a whimper and I'm bored to tears long before the last note is played. I figure I'm more at attention at the beginning, so I can tolerate average songs better than at the end lol

I was never a huge fan of "sleaze" (always made me think of used car dealerships when I'd hear that term bandied about, so I could never take it seriously lol), but yeah, I liked these guys, since they had strong enough hooks that I could look past the "hey baby/party all night" lyrics. Plus I think Ted's vocals helped...distinct vocals and great personality. He honestly seemed to be enjoying himself and the music he played, which made the band sound like they were enjoying themselves, whereas a lot of their peers seemed to be just going through the motions, playing a style of music to try and sell records, get girls, or whatever. Which is the main criticism I had with the last Trixter record, seemed they were just playing the style of music Frontiers contracted them to play (I think Steve's much better at power pop these days) based on their "niche/brand recognition" instead of it coming from a more organic, heartfelt place..but I digress.

Shame if they're not recording any more music. Wish I'd gotten to see them live, too. I had a chance around '99, but I didn't really start going to shows by myself until '02, guess I was sheltered lol Big fan of both Ted and Paul, pretty much equally, but for totally opposite reasons. Ted when I'm in the mood for that 80s retro melodic rock style and Paul for the more power pop/punk style he brings to the table.
