"If you dig the dark, theatrical rock of vintage Alice Cooper, the dangerous thrill
of Iggy & The Stooges and the glamour of New York Dolls, then hold on to your sequined jacket baby, because you are in for a real cool time."
- Ben Hughes, RPM Online
"Beautiful Decline picks up where Juju left off, bringing the energy and spirit of Iggy’s street-walkin’ cheetah (check out I Gotta Move) to a Panavision world in which L.A’s soulless heart (typified in the album’s title track) meets the gutter wisdom of New York City (as on the Johnny Thunders-meets-the-Velvets snippet that is Widow’s Walk, or the backs to-the-wall declaration of Get in Line). The sonic palette is broadened here, too, with atmospheric synths and piano introducing a tragic hero called Kid Stardust, who is juxtaposed against Duguay’s energetic reading of The Alex Harvey Band’s Faith Healer. Through 11 songs, this is grand and epic stuff that sounds fantastic and is also deceptively complex — every listen reveals more and more of the exquisite musicality of rock ’n’ roll lifers giving it their best."
