Well I must take exception to Creem Magazine's review of this album, which starts of by saying, "These bitches suck." I believe that these ladies are amongst the best rockers, to ever be heard. Yet, I have to disagree, with people who say that Lita reaches Jeff Beck/ Jimmy Page heights. I think that Lita is an excellent guitarist and she is my favorite member of the band, she is not in the top ten of all guitarists. I think Circus magazine was right to induct her into their hall of fame, however.
If these "Bitches" sucked, why did the album break into Billboard's top 200? And why did it produce Joan Jett and Lita Ford?
