The cover art of this album is almost as preposterous as the music on the new album by Hollywood Vampires. The music is as outdated as I am starting to become, were it not that the music is so much fun to listen to. It is simply so well made, that "a splendid time is guaranteed for all", to quote a lyric from another band that is totally outdated, yet still so enormously popular and quoted the text from a 19th century circus poster. Speaking of out of time, baby.
Hollywood Vampires is an all star band consisting of Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry and an alternating line up behind them of more or of less fame. So what I expect is what I hear: loud guitars and a rough way of singing. This is classic hard rock with loads of melodies. There's no doubt that the gentlemen are having loads of fun. Why otherwise go through all the bother. Each has proven in his own way to be a star.
