AllMusic Review by

L.A. Guns attempted a comeback in 1995 with Vicious Circle, the first album in three years from the Los Angeles metal band. Attempting to conform to the fashion of the '90s, the band turns in a hard record, complete with grunge influences. To put it mildly, the results are a mixed bag. The band clearly doesn't want to embrace the new breed of hard rock -- the riffs and production are forced, which makes the group sound older than they are. L.A. Guns has also failed to come up with any killer riffs or hooks, leaving Vicious Circle a tepid affair.
