The bubblegum goth-glam these Finnish fellows call "love metal" feels even lighter on their eighth album than it used to -- as flouncy as Suede or Placebo, and downright featherlike in "Into the Night." But they still make sure to stick some sanitized Sabbath riffs ("Hearts at War," "W.L.S.T.D") between the more Adam Lambert material, and they swipe real pretty melodies -- from Duran Duran's "Come Undone" in "I Will Be the End of You," Def Lep's "Hysteria" in "Drawn & Quartered," maybe 1976 Blue Öyster Cult in "No Love." For bookends, two darkwave instrumentals let the lipstick runneth over.
