Mars Electric's sophomore release 'Fame Among the Vulgar' is 43 minutes of radio friendly mainstream AOR rock. Unfortunately, it is lack luster and unmemorable. While some songs tease us with the hints of breaking out, in the end this CD falls flat on its; play it safe, break no rules self. Strongest tunes are 'Heaven's Gate', 'Bemused' and 'Disco King' with it's Marvelous3 influence showing through.
'Fame Among the Vulgar'
is one part energy; one part danger and one part attitude away from being a
stand out release, until those parts are found, it is a disappointment.
