The Lovethugs' second album, 2005's Babylon Fading is a slight step forward for the Oslo, Norway, quartet (plus a percussionist). 2003's Playground Instructors was a trippy but melodically strong neo-psychedelic record that sometimes strayed into jam band territory and was held back by vocalist Jorgen's awkward vocals and lyrics. The same pluses and minuses apply here, but the pluses are stronger and the minuses are less obvious.

Playground Instructors is not an album of "Playground Instructor"s - and Lovethugs seem more a band of lucky (and indeed, sometimes very lucky) gamblers than skilled players of the rock band game. You see, they're not a lounge act, or a psychedelic act, or a new wave act, or a pop act - part of the reason they've been compared to everyone from Echo and the Bunnymen to Cream, from Hendrix to the Kinks. They're fairly good musicians with a flair for tuneful melodies and either a wealth of disparate influences or some clashing creative visions.
Devil's Playground is the sixth studio album by English rock vocalist Billy Idol, released on 22 March 2005. It is his first studio album in over a decade (the latest being 1993's Cyberpunk), and his first new studio songs since 2001 (Idol's cover of "Don't You (Forget About Me)" on Greatest Hits). The album also reunited Idol in the studio with guitarist Steve Stevens and producer Keith Forsey. All songs were written or co-written by Idol except "Plastic Jesus"
