The Cherry Pie loving rock and rollers are back with a new album and a goal to keep kick ass rock and roll alive through their music. Although there is a new lead singer, and a different sound to the band, the music is still the same and you can still hear the same great riffs you heard with albums like cherry Pie and Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. They have once again brought you a solid rocking album by the name of Born again.

This is the first album that singer Jamie St. James is on since Jani has gone on to follow his solo career. Jamie St. James has been on tour with the band for a few years now. His sound is fitting for the band, and when you see them live, it sounds like they have been touring together since the band started; it's really hard to tell a difference in the sound.

Jamie St. James fits well with the Down Boys and his sound is nothing but solid with this album. The sound is definitely back to the roots of Rock and Roll and the songs are true to the times with such songs as "Love Strikes like Lightning" and "Down in Diamonds". Those songs bring back the true sound of what Warrant was when they were down on Sunset Strip. The songs are songs you could have heard 20 years ago, they speak of life and living and everything that rock and roll has always been about. "Hell, CA" is a very uplifting song about living in California and the image of life there, almost as if they are saying that the entrance to the best place for music and for life is through Hell, CA.

Warrant new album is full of the 80's sound, which will make fans of the previous albums happy and will definitely attract some new fans as well, it is the perfect combination of rock and roll and musical talent, this album proves that rock and roll still lives on and kick ass rock and roll will never die. Even with a lineup change, Jamie St. James replaced Jani Lane on vocals; Warrant is still rock and roll and still has a strong sense of what rock and roll needs with the guitar solos and great choruses to sing along to.

5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
