Review Summary: Solid album from this great new Swedish hair band.
Reckless Love pretty much wear their influences on their sleeves (or in this case their hair). Their sound and image harkens back to the glory days of 80s glam metal and bands like Poison and Motley Crue. While they are heavily influenced by 80s hair metal, I would say they are more than just a hair band - they have a sort of accessibility that would fit right in on modern pop radio as well as in the 80s hair metal scene.
Their third album is a natural progression from their previous two, and is packed with catchy riffs and big sing-a-long choruses, and does not disappoint. The standout tracks are "Night on Fire", "Bad Lovin", "Sex, Drugs and Reckless Love", and "Edge of Dreams". There isn't a whole lot of depth to these songs, but that is the point. It is simple catchy party-rock, and it is extremely addicting. Fans of their previous albums will absolutely love this, as will fans of old school 80s hair bands and even fans of good pop music. Anyone who is familiar with Poison, Motley Crue, Cinderella, Skid Row etc... will know what to expect. The truth is while these guys emulate 80s hair bands, they are actually better than 90% of them.
