Ken and Ronnie have kept Pretty Maids cleaning house for nearly 40 years! Record number 15 (I think) is a barn-burner. 'Kingmaker' does everything just right, as if we would expect anything differently from metal's most consistent band. Opener 'When God Took a Day Off' is a profound world-ending statement done with the familiar harmonies and keys. Like most PM fans we need the chains a breakin' and we get that with heavy hitters in 'Humanize Me', 'Bull's Eye' and 'Civilized Monsters'.
