STAIRWAY TO HELL: THE NEW UGLY KID JOE EP IS… OKAY
Stairway to Hell, Ugly Kid Joe’s reunion EP, wasn’t scheduled to be released until June 5… but the band decided to release it a week early for whatever reason, so it’s actually out now. You can purchase a legal download here or stream it below.
I’ve listened to it and it’s… well, it’s not bad. It’s not great, though. It’s certainly a million times better than 1996’s Motel California, which was the band’s last official release — but it’s not nearly as much fun as either America’s Least Wanted or Menace to Sobriety, which remains the band’s high points. I’m still waiting for that feel-good album which I’m gonna rock all summer long… I don’t think this is it. Any suggestions?
