L.A. Guns

Cocked and Loaded

Many bands out of the late 1980's copied and imitated other bands of their genre and usually only recorded two or three good songs on a full length album. Well, this album is an exception. L.A. Guns along with faster pussycat pushed the sleaze dirty rock n roll style beyond any limitations, and on Cocked and loaded it shows. I can honestly say I love every song on this album. Every one sounds original and shows of thier musical ablity quite well by using different types of instruments, sounds, and styles. If you can find it buy it. It's a glam metal classic and has influenced bands like Roxx Gang.
