SHOOT THE MOON
Sleazy and bluesy hard rock comes courtesy of Shoot the Moon, whose nine-track disc wreaks of hard rock hooks, hip-slithering rhythms in leather pants, and loads of regret. You can smell the booze on the breath of the vocals on "No Rewind", "Someday" is full of power ballad bravado, and hey, isn't track five a cover song? Well "Nowhere & Hell" is one of the best riffs G'NR never wrote, but luckily this crew has lifted many more tricks from the down and dirty hard rock dictionary. Laying down blues boogie hair metal with a touch of southern livin' ("Grandma"), Shoot the Moon showcase their solid chops with the attitude of the top shelf of hard rock acts in tow.
