Vains of Jenna – Lit Up/Let Down (2006)
Landing the opening slot for the Poison/Ratt tour has increased their fan base, and the constant touring with groups like Cradle of Filth, CKY and GWAR has exposed the band to a whole new group of listeners.
Is Lit Up/Let Down the best Glam Metal CD that I have heard. No. Not by a longshot, but there are some solid and enjoyable cuts on this disc worth giving it a few spins.
I am a sucker for enhanced CD’s and VOJ’s new disc has the following video, No One’s Gonna Do It For You, and a Making of Video. It is a nice addition for VOJ fans.
I think Lit Up/Let Down is a CD that takes a few listens to get its hooks into you, but once it does, you will get a lot of enjoyment out of it. I hear little bits of Poison, and Guns ‘N Roses fused into their music.
I think Vains of Jenna has loads of potential, and they will definitely be one of the bands carrying the glam metal torch well into the next decade.
