“It’s as if the spirits of Thin Lizzy, Cheap Trick and Rose Tattoo have been newly pickled in a cheap whiskey and strapped to a runaway freight train. Only Louder. A wild celebration of good times and bad behaviour this should be the soundtrack to your summer”. DOM LAWSON – CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE 8/10
