Liberty N’ Justice is marking its 20th anniversary with this new release. Although celebratory, this album also marks time as the band finishes up work on The Cigar Chronicles, its ambitious 2 CD project. It’s easy to love an album with a song title like “Whack a Mole,” because, well, it just sounds ready-made for a rock album. This album’s title track is a kind of spiritual wake-up call put to music that works. Led by Justin Murr, Liberty N’ Justice is a winning throwback to a time when hard rock was as obsessed with melodies as it was with guitar licks and bass grooves. Speaking of throwbacks, the inclusion of an acoustic version of “Sin,” features the late Jani Lane of Warrant. It’s a sobering reminder that there are consequences to sin. Lane probably didn’t realize his own end would come quite so soon. Seriously, hell shouldn’t really ever be for breakfast anymore.
