With all five positions filled by Swiss Misters whose Krokus experience dates back at least to 1982, they're back to their boogie base -- or at least to being a respectable bargain-bin AC/DC -- in numbskull boffs like "Better Than Sex" and blatant "Dirty Deeds" cop "Go Baby Go." There are Chuck Berry riffs, some beer-commercial blues, a power-ballad Beatles cover and plenty of good old-fashioned sexism. In the Slade-ishly bawdy music-hall ribjoint-shuffle title cut and the dancey closer that brags "I'm a hard-rockin' hard-rockin' hard-rockin' hard-rockin' man," they truly get their swerve on.
