L.A. Guns : The Missing Peace Album Review

Artist: L.A. Guns
Album: The Missing Peace
Genre: Hard Rock
Label: Frontiers Music srl.
Release Date: October 13, 2017
Review by: Bobby Caughron

Review:
So now that hell has finally frozen over and Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis have officially reunited L.A. Guns, what’s the verdict you ask? It’s a contender for hard rock album of the year. It’s good. Scratch that. It’s great. Actually, it’s damn great! This is the first time that L.A. Guns have sounded like themselves since Hollywood Vampires was released That was 26 years ago. There definitely is a magic in the music when the two work together.

This album is a much more raw, meaner sounding record than they’ve put out in a long time. It will definitely remind you of the debut album, and let’s be honest, that’s what we all want from them. So, congrats to the guys for being able to find their roots again. With tracks like “Speed” and “Sticky Fingers” you’ll feel transported right back in time to 1988. This the glam sleaze rock sound that brought them fame and attention in the first place.

Much like other bands that have had problems, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and Steven Tyler, Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose and Slash and Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth, the combo of intense personalities often brings about some of the best music when they work together. Take it from me, you’ll want to get “The Missing Peace” on release day. If you are now, or have ever been a fan of L.A. Guns, this is exactly what you’ve been waiting to hear. No bullshit, no attempts at a modern metal sound or alternative rock, just straight ahead sleazy rock n’ roll in the vein of a rough and tumble, heavier Rolling Stones style. Put the needle on the record and get out of the way because you’re about to be blown away by one of the best records you’re likely to hear this year!
