Welcome to the Club ranks a cut below Vices, with a cleaner production and performances that push Kick Axe into more radio-friendly territory, but also tend to mute some of the exuberance of the debut. Lead singer George Criston sounds a bit more reigned in, and, while he continues to deliver uniformly strong performances, his over-the-top personality is slightly less dominant than before. But even if Welcome to the Club doesn't quite capture the essence of Kick Axe the way Vices did, that's not to say it isn't a good record

Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). Following on the heels of their debut album, Kick Axe got right back in the saddle with a well-crafted follow up; Welcome To The Club, produced, once again, by Spencer Proffer (Quiet Riot, King Kobra, . and his, for this record, assistant Randy Bishop. It was a far more mature recording, exuding a new level of sophistication by bringing in to play the sort of sound being pioneered by artists such as Queensryche and Dio. They didn't, however, take their eyes off the prize, keeping brute force to the fore and all hands on the steering wheel.
