From the opening riff to the end it was pretty clear who Cut Lips' biggest influence are. Whilst not quite as blatantly plagiarized as Vains Of Jenna's Guns N Roses lite sound you still can't help wondering if these guys shouldn't expand their base view slightly.
Is it a bad EP? Definitely not, it's actually very good. Musically it is good with some strong riffs. The lyrics are nothing special but there are some strong vocal melodies and big choruses. I like big choruses.
Stand out tracks: 'Miss Lady Decadence' - mighty fine riffs and a good dancing vibe.
'Shakedown' does exactly what it says on the tin. Up tempo party rock. This will definitely have people bopping in a live or club environment.
'No Compromise' has a great driving rhythm.
If you are a fan of Live
Like A Suicide and Appetite era Guns N Roses you will love this EP. I would
actually rather listen to this Cut Lips EP than Chinese Democracy so that can't
be a bad thing.
