And the winner for best named album of the year goes to, WARRANT! Born Again, in the title of the album as well as the literal sense, the 'down boys' have come a long way from "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and "Cherry Pie". While their roots are still buried in that hard pounding rock n roll, the older more mature Warrant seems to take things a bit more serious on this (for me) long awaited album, proving that, yes, they are keeping 'kick- ass' not 'kiss-ass' rock alive. Sounding very much like a mix of a rockin' "power bluesy" sound, I was pleased to see the overall feel of Warrant hasn't changed much over the years.

From slow love ballads like "Glimmer" to raunchy rockers like "Roxy", this CD will defintley find a place in any Warrant fan's CD case. Jaime St. James, formerly of Black n Blue, has exactly what it takes to put the rock in this rock band and backed by some of the finest musicians, I'd expect this album to do very very well. "Devil's Juice", "Hell, CA", "Dirty Jack"--all classics in the making as far as I'm concerned and I'd recommend this to anyone who was a fan of Warrant in the 80's or is just discovering them now. As the album covers says-- theyre pitching in to keep KICK ASS rock alive...and I say Thank God!!

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.
