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.

King Lizard bring the sunset strip from California to London. The debut album from these hard rocking youngsters is 'Viva La Decadence', a romping good time produced by veterans Andy Brook and Chris Tsangarides. 'Slave To The Grind' era Skid Row come to mind right up front but the group also dig deep with that sleazy glam feel of the late 80s. Modern fans may find a Buckcherry similarity in the vocals which is a turn off for me. I like my rockers to have a slight 'tough guy' feel but I don't get that out of 'Viva La Decadence'. It's still a really good spin and a quality debut record. For fans of Cowboy Prostitutes, Bonafide and Kid Dynamite.
