lol I don't know what this is going to be but the cover SUCKS in a funny way. It kinda looks like it'll be heavy metal? Maybe from a non-English country? Greece? Ok, it's hard rock (close enough) and the singer sounds like Jimmy Barnes. They're Australian? Fuck, I never heard of them. I love Airbourne, so how did this escape me? Either way, pretty much up my alley. 4/5.

Hard rock is a kind of practice for the dust of Oz. Koritni lay down a respectable record here, one that stays on the road and is thus clean inasmuch as the jalopy holds together. The closing words from boozing skeletons are disarmingly encouraging: Sunlight falls on the hills outside the rotting house and friendship survives the land of the dead, I suppose.

Well executed hard rock, but I couldn't really find anything special in it. This is a sound that was more or less settled in the 1980s, and no particular innovation here 30 years on. Similarly the lyrics are perfectly functional and fit to purpose but pretty meathead.

Sounds just like anything else you can hear on the classic rock oldies station. Sounds a lot like Iron Maiden. Occasionally whiffs of Audioslave. I like those bands and this band sounds good. For 2009 it feels a bit derivative.

Pretty standard hard rock release, but that's not a bad thing at all. Definitely needed an injection of distorted guitar this week, and the usual arrangements and lyrics got my head bobbing and kept me entertained which is all I can ask for.

I find the album cover a little misleading. I was expecting metal, but all I got was some good ol' fashioned hardrock. Melodic, catchy and good to listen to! Also a little too smooth for my taste, but that didn't spoil the party.

I know they say not to judge an album by its cover, but I did and I was wrong. I was expecting some type of death-metal/grindcore/growly vocal type bullshit, but this was like 80's throwback hard rock. Still not quite my cup of tea but not half bad. 3 stars.

Some 2000's (that's now classic) rock band. Fine listening.

I don't think this is that bad, but rather I think other Albums kind of handled this sound just way better.

Eh..never heard of em. Super generic 80's "hard rock." Nothing stood out. Maybe they never "made it" out of Australia?

8/10. I didn't hear anything revolutionary, but definitely a solid hard rock album. I liked roll the dice and tornado dreaming 2

Good musicians and singer, but can't get rid of the feeling that I am listening to a 80's Glam Rock tribute band.

Good old fashioned guitar rock like Aerosmith and mainstream Guns’n’Roses, but lacking the killer memorable hooks of superstar hard rock.

Decent execution of the template 80's influenced Rock, but brought absolutely nothing new to my speakers.

This album is a fairly straightforward hard rock album with touches of hair metal and glam thrown in. The musicianship is fine and the singer has a great voice for the genre. The lyrics weren’t great however and this album came out 25-30 years too late. There is nothing unique about this album.
