Deuce (Spitfire Records)
By: Mike SOS
Beautiful Creatures? sophomore outing, appropriately titled DEUCE, rides the wave of bands like Dope, Murderdolls, Velvet Revolver, and Shinedown, despite the fact that this outfit comprised of vets from notable acts such as Flotsam and Jetsam and Bang Tango were kicking ass way before the inception of the aforementioned. Taking equal parts of Sunset Strip bravado and modern rock?s arena rock swagger, songs like "Empty" connects the dots between hair metal hooks and mope rock melancholy, while "Straight to Hell" lines up in the Harley line with all engines roaring. Ballsy, whiskey soaked cock rock never dies: it just gets reshuffled, restyled, and churned out with the attitude missing from much of today?s sanitized rock. While Beautiful Creatures do tend to sound a bit too rehashed at times, their Motley meets BLS stance still shakes the asses and warrants the fists to pump.
