By far the best music ever to come out of Billy Idol? Absolutely, if you ask me (one could, however, argue that nobody will ask me). Billy’s previous work like Vital Idol doesn’t come close to this production. The lyrics are better. The music is better. Billy is better. Charmed Life was good, Devil’s Playground is excellent!
He’s been gone (in more ways than one) for far too long. It’s nice to see (and hear) him back where he belongs. And it’s great to hear that he hasn’t been going in the direction most wanna-be musicians go after a tour of absence (i.e. “shitty”).
The downside? If you only like Billy when he’s doing “Rebel Yell”, this album is definitely not for you.
