Lucifer's Friend - Sneak Me In (1980)
The seventh album from this German band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
Not much of the very good band from the 1970s with the same name was left. New vocalist and new style.
The band sounded like a mix of Queen and Elton John on their previous album. A shocking bad album.
The band still sound like a mix of Queen and Elton John on this album. The music is medium hard and full of socalled catchy hooks and licks. They tried to make the hooks and licks catchy. But they failed.
If not the pretty dire cover art-work would have scared off the music buyer, a quick listen to this album would have done that job. And the music does not get any better even after repeated listenings.
There is a couple of half decent songs and licks here. That is a saving grace.....
Make a big detour around this album and enjoy their first albums.
