Spun: Billy Idol

By Nick Hembroff

Whether you think Billy Idol as a legend or a has-been, his newest album, Devil’s Playground, is more of the same. The first two tracks on the album are rock and roll garbage–over-produced sounds that are too loud to hear the words. The rest of the album is classic Billy Idol with softer guitar and toned down percussion kept in the background of another great Billy Idol story told in song. Devil’s Playground is like listening to a great story teller regale you with bits and pieces of his life, casting his harsh judgments upon the characters he talks about.
