Under Attack by the Alarm

The Alarm is to Europe what the Bon Jovi is to New Jersey – and the United States – old 80s hair metal marvel boys trapped in the times of tight spandex and Aquanet. And the latest effort, Under Attack, is no different than their lonely hit “Sixty-Eight Guns” – plenty of lackluster, fist-pumping anthems that desperately want the good ol’ times back (just check out “My Town” and “Few and Far Between”). Maybe it’s unfortunate for them that the Jovi were famous first – or at least, deservingly famous – but with a humdrum automaton like Under Attack, it’s no surprise. At least Jovi had “Livin’ on a Prayer.”
