Hard Side: Sex Museum - Fly by Night 
By Brad Podray

Combine the voice of the Cranberries with the guitar work of Nickelback, throw in a dose of older Creed rhythm and what do you get?  A terrible band unrelated to this review. 
 
 Since that two-sentence tangent is over, on to the review!  For those of you interested in what Sex Museum's Fly by Night is, here is the summary: A two disc set of hard rock played live that takes you directly out of wherever you are and sticks you in a nice scummy bar.  While in that scummy bar, you play pool and pound down beer after beer while that cute blonde in the tight jeans keeps on eyeing you, not because she thinks you're attractive but rather because you're obnoxiously singing along with every song that the local bar band is playing.  That's the CD in a nutshell.  On this CD, you'll hear the hits they were famous for, such as the classic "Flyin' High," which you may have heard at 4 AM somewhere on a college radio station.  While they lack the high-budget polish of many modern pop-rock bands, there's a respectability and honesty about this CD that makes it not suck.  It uses the tried and true tactics made famous by bands like Deep Purple and utilizes them in a way that's original enough so that they can't be called hacks.  

It has the grungy riffs and straightforward lyrics about being a badass and loving women that everyone can relate to.  Deep philosophical undertones soak up the classic "Red ones" as the singer belts out "I love you girls.  I love all girls.  Get into my car.  It's gonna be nice."  While it does relate to a wide audience, it's not exactly what one would call classic writing.  To summarize the CD again: straightforward hard rock double CD set of Sex Museum new songs and classics that doesn't suck.
 
Sure to please:  Old hard rock fans.  People who like being in bars.
 
Sure to disappoint: Rap fans.  Techno fans.  Anybody who's favorite band released their first album after 1991.
