Audio Porn: Midnight Confessions

Canada's Audio Porn return to the scene with the follow-up to their self-titled release from 2011, and find themselves described as, "notorious," by their record company who also suggest that Midnight Confessions will become, " a staple in every die-hard rock n' rollers catalogue of favourites." I'm not fully confident that this prediction rings true but this is s decided step up from the first album.

The band is still led by guitarist like Jeff Westlake, arguably best known for his Billboard work with Hydrogyn, alongside vocalist and former Jezebel's Kiss singer / songwriter Azriel St. Michael. This album introduces new members, John Cardillino on drums and RC Ricci on bass both of whom play their part on what is an enjoyable outing. The main thing which is noticeable throughout is the similarity to Bon Jovi even on the heavier songs such as "Heaven's Burning Down Tonight". All the way through I was thinking that this could possibly the kind of record Bon Jovi should make after a couple of decades of not really being a rock band. There's a decent stab at Aerosmith's "Lord Of The Thighs" and a surprising couple of live bonus tracks (I though Audio Porn were studio-based only) on a perfectly decent hard yet melodic album.

Track listing:
1. This Ain't Paradise
2. Sin
3. Freak Like You
4. Lord Of The Thighs
5. Not Saying Sorry
6. I'll Be Your Man
7. Working It Out
8. Steeple
9. Heaven's Burning Down Tonight
10. Break Me (live)
11. Drive (live)
