Ahead of the Lions


Supporters of the Campaign to Bring Back Real Rock, Man, will probably want to cock an ear to Living Things’ politically charged, Guns N’ Roses-meets-the Clash, sonic blitzkrieg. But don’t get your hopes up too far. Truth is, despite some impressive advance hype, Ahead of the Lions sounds a tad too generic for comfort, leading us to wonder whether this St. Louis outfit will actually get any further with their trip than the ill-fated, stylistically similar D Generation did with theirs. (We do love that the lead singer is a guy named Lillian, though.)
