We gave it a C+

In hard rock, sometimes the voice of experience can be drowned out by loud young upstarts. For example, four out of Contraband’s five members are veteran musicians playing hooky from their regular bands — the Michael Schenker Group’s Michael Schenker, L.A. Guns’ Tracii Guns, Vixen’s Share Pedersen, and Ratt’s Bobby Blotzer. But it’s a virtually unknown singer, Richard Black, of a band called Shark Island, who, with his sarcastically dramatic vocals, shines on Contraband only mildly entertaining. C+
