“Discovered by producer Beau Hill via MySpace, New Zealand newcomers Mistress set the marker for what a new hair metal band should sound like. Kicking off with the well-crafted Rock It Tonight, they posses the goods to be as big as Reckless Love - but with a harder edge. Their craft and ability seeps through on tracks like Live It Up and Late Night Lover. But it's the Beau Hill mixed track, She's A Sinner which sets them apart from the pack with heavy guitar solos and a trudging bass line. They explore the 80's, drawing on their influences, like Motley Crue, Ratt and Judas Priest, but they take those influences to the next level by adding elementa of their own, treading more on the moody, guitar-driven anthems that become the main driving force of this record - and, impressively, without an ounce of contrivance about them.”
