While it's a little bit too produced at times, "YOUNG & DANGEROUS" is still a fun glam rock album with great performances and awesome hooks (unlike a certain *cough* Led Zeppelin cover band *cough*).

Fav Tracks: Ashes (Part 2), Somebody New, Freak Like You, Fire (Part 1), Body Talks (Both), In Love With A Camera

Least Fav Track: Who Am I?

Damn, when they compare The Struts to groups like Queen, or MCR, they weren’t lying. This is such a fun album that feels like a blend of arena glam rock, angsty/emo rock all wrapped into one. Lead vocalist, Luke Spiller has the pipes of some of the all-time greats, I know I may still be coming down from this, but this is such a good listen. If you like the old 80s rock sound mixed with the 2000s sound, then I highly suggest you check this album out!
