L.A. Guns‘ previous studio album The Devil You Know finished at #9 on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2019 to which Sleaze Roxx stated:

“While finishing at #9 on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2019 is likely cause for celebration for any band, this finish has to likely be deemed a disappointment for the L.A. Guns entity led by Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns since the band finished at #1 in style (with more than double the votes of runner-up Eclipse) with The Missing Peace on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2017. This time around, L.A. Guns featuring Lewis and Guns just barely made the Top 10 and the words “album of the year” for The Devil You Know simply were seemingly never uttered compared to The Missing Peace‘s stunning reception in 2017.

What went wrong you might think? The Devil You Know was released in April while The Missing Peace benefited from a mid-October release and traditionally, albums that are released in the latter part of the year tend to do better in Sleaze Roxx‘s year end polls. The old adage “out of sight, out of mind” might have cursed The Devil You Know. Another potential reason might be all the bad mouthing that Lewis and Guns did towards their former L.A. Guns bandmates Steve Riley and Kelly Nickels from the time that the duo’s version of L.A. Guns was announced to appear at the 2019 edition of the M3 Rock Festival to just before that festival took place. Were some people turned off by the comments ushered by Lewis and Guns during those four months or so? The last potential reason is perhaps the most obvious one being that The Missing Peace was likely simply a better album than The Devil You Know.”
