Laidlaw were discovered by Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crue and they were from California. So, any sarcastic comment is expected. But don't let that hold you back from trying this out. These guys sound very Southern and they play some fine heavy rock. If you're into Blackfoot or Johnny's Skynyrd, you'll love this. Great songs, nothing sophisticated, all good fun. I love the vocals and playing. And besides this album, there's only one other release(?) and then: nothing. Short story, but there's not much more to add to this (unless you can think of something...). Get it if you like it loud. Southern Rock, that is. Burnin'!
