W.A.S.P. - The Neon God: Part 2 - The Demise
By Dustin Hupe
Blackie Lawless is back again with a follow
up to the last album. It's clear by listening to this album that W.A.S.P.
can still produce something enjoyable, however I miss the songs about sex
and booze. Where did all this meaning of life stuff come from? I'm not
saying that this album sucks, in fact it is far from sucking, but they
fail to represent the reckless disregard for authority that they once stood
The W.A.S.P. sound is still intact but
on a slightly more mellow note. You can forget about F***ing like a beast,
this time it's all about melodic guitar riffs. In fact there was more music
than lyrics even in the 13 min 30 sec song "The Last Redemption". But as
stated before it is enjoyable and it is well worth a listen.
You may remember the album Crimson Idol
from earlier in their career, Neon God is a big story also. In part
one it was the creation of a monster and in part too (this one) it is the
fall of the beast. The entire album is littered with keyboards and sounds
that remind you of "The Who"(see track 4 "Clockwork Mary"). This album
alone is good, but to fully enjoy and understand what it's about, you should
check out part one as well.
