Las Vegas rockers Adelitas Way had barely released their third album Stuck before they started working on the successor. Don’t know the background, but guess the reception was not what they and their label Virgin had expected. Personally I think that Stuck was too uneven and also too pop oriented even though there were a number of really good tracks.
If this EP gives a picture of the upcoming album, the band has once again put on their rock costume again and delivers five strong tracks. Unlike the previous albums, this is clearly more organic and '70s inspired, which is a good way to go. "Filthy Heart" where they are not far from Aerosmith is a favorite with its catchy melody and chorus. The opening track "Deserve This", which also offers classy hard rock is worth to mention and will sure to become a live favorite with its cool riffs. The rest of the tracks are not quite the same class, but is nevertheless a shake-up of its predecessor and shows that the band is back on track.
