”Muscular” is a word that springs to mind when listening to Saliva — and not just because they are a favorite of World Wrestling Entertainment. On this, the Memphis metallers’ fifth CD, Blood Stained Love Story, they tend to stick to what they know: music that isn’t performed as much as cudgeled into submission (”King of the Stereo,” ”Black Sheep”). But they surprise with bright, leavening pop sensibility on ”Ladies and Gentlemen.” And while the ballad ”Going Under” is the 90-pound weakling of the bunch, it will have even the most behemoth-like fan waving his lighter.
