Following on from the relative success of the Devils album, the humorously titled Angels is a marked improvement while containing some superb individual tracks too. This is just as well, because the band have been busy as of late, including a new live album; Hollywood Kills: Live at the Whisky a Go Go
For me, the Angels album is outstanding in many ways, but mainly due to the inclusion of two fantastic ballads. Firstly the beautiful yet catchy Ghost which showcases the softer side of Jurki's vocals. Star of Fate is also a stunning piece which as well as being slightly uncharacteristic of the band, possesses some haunting moments and even leaves space for a guitar solo too - it's almost like a fairy tale.
Sandwiched in between these is the debut single Perfect Skin - which again is a slightly unusual 69 Eyes romp which required a bit of getting into, but thankfully I got there eventually with thanks to the superb music video. The track rather plods along and doesn't have any great power to it, however it does have a certain something special to it, as well as oozing class.
I own the Limited Edition which includes a Bonus DVD: Perfect Skin Video, Picture Gallery (which is very artistic) & 5 live tracks recorded live @ the Whisky A Go Go.
