This album features the once lead singer of Hanoi Rocks, the glam rock band who could’ve been one of the big time arena acts, but for some reason, never quite got their due. Now, Michael Monroe with his own solo band, brings you a 2 CD set compilation of Michael’s solo endeavors. He’s been solo for a long time, until he rejoined with Hanoi Rocks again until 2009. They disbanded once before in 1985. Included on this disc set are some rare & even some new songs, including a cover of Steppinwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride” featuring Slash on guitar. This compilation also reminds me a lot of Mott The Hoople. I am a fan of Mott The Hoople, & there are a lot of similarities whether it’s on a hard heavy song or a ballad. This is an album that you can play loud & be proud. I would rate this 4 out of 5 Music Guru Stars.
