An incredible classic hard rock album, worthy of more than 5

"This could be the PERFECT glam metal album, in the way that it exemplifies everything good about the genre; but it's also, overall, just an incredible classic hard rock album.
Any LA Guns fan knows that Phil's voice, alone, can elevate material above the rest of what's out there, so, as long as Phil's around, they're at a good starting point. What amazed me about "Tales from the Strip" was that, not only did LA Guns NOT suffer musically from the departure of original guitarist Tracii Guns, but they actually seem so much stronger and maybe even a little more heartfelt in their delivery.
Fast-paced rockers like "It Don't Mean Nothing" & "Hollywood's Burning" build on the style of earlier work from "Cocked & Loaded" without sounding dated. "Skin" & "Original Sin" flat-out nail sleaze-rock. And I get chills everytime I hear "Electric Neon Sunset" & "Vampire" - bluesy, emotional tracks that I would consider their best.
It doesn't matter what's popular, what scene the band came from, what their 'look' is - "Tales From the Strip" is an amazing album that deserves to be heard; once heard it's tuly addictive!"
