  • Kenny from Clydebank, Scotlandmetal guru is better than any drug for taking one higher and higher and into orbit, teenage dreams are hard to beat when music like this is on the street.
  • Wyatt from Anywhere, United StatesMetal Guru is great but I liked "the Slider the best of the songs onthe album, it just has this visceral rythym that grabs you. I'd post it but I don't have the Lyrics handy. Baby Boomarang was pretty good as well.
