Compilation of songs covered by LA Guns.
L A Guns emerged on the scene as an L A super group in the late 80s and struck gold with a series of albums that appealed to metal fans but were steeped in the time honoured tradition of rock and roll. “Rips The Covers Off” is a reference to the songs on the album which are like a sound track to the lives of the members of L A GUNS. Covering songs by Led Zeppelin, Rose Tatoo, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, And Aerosmith to name a few, the boys knock these songs out with as much fire and energy as if they had written them.
5.0 out of 5 stars You WON’T be disappointed!,
This CD is outstanding!!! There really ISN’T a song on it that I DON’T like. Phil Lewis’ vocals take these vintage 70s songs and brings them ROARING back to the present! My top picks: Search and Destroy (Iggy Pop and the Stooges), Marseilles (Angel City), Wheels of Steel (Saxon), and Moonage Daydream (Bowie).
5.0 out of 5 stars blast from the past.
lets get straight to the point, the gunners sound as good as ever. i was a little sceptical when finding out Tracii guns would not be on the album, but ‘the new guy’ Stacy blades doesn’t drop the ball an inch. Phil sounds great as does the rest of the band. the best aspect of the disc is that each song has that incredible LAG sound, which really makes it that much more enjoyable to listen to. highly impressive work, a must have for any fan of LAG, hardcore or casual.
5.0 out of 5 stars Still Great,
When I first heard that L.A.Guns was back in the studio I was excited because I thought I was going to hear some new stuff but then I found out it was only a cover album so that was the ONLY dismantlement. Other then that L.A.Guns stayed true to the original songs they covered and actually, their versions could possibly be better then the original? either way this is a great cover album, I recommend it.
