Louder Harder Faster
Last year I actually caught Warrant play at some random dive biker bar, and I couldn’t help but feel somewhat bad watching how far they had fallen from grace. I felt the same way while listening to their latest album Louder Harder Faster (their first in six years), which should come as no surprise to anyone how generic it sounds. Yet you have to hand it to them for still trying. It’s not like Louder… is a total waste though; “Faded,” “Choose Your Fate,” and the title track all have some steam behind them, but like so many other bands from their era, nothing they release these days is going to leave much of a lasting impression anywhere in today’s music world. There’s definitely no exceptions here.
