An H.R. Geiger cover graces this third album of the Danzig band and Chuck Biscuits still pounds that single bass battery like a bandit, and Christ and Von are still being the best backers that this short Wolverine character would ever get (Gods can't everyone involved understand how much they've sucked since they split up?) But this is not a perfect album. Even the best track on it, the title one the one that goes "Oh, oh would you let it go?" is flawed with over hot mic-manship and support from the great Lumpet. I'm not blasting Glenn and Crew's production job, they did the best they could, but if Rubin were in the studio at that moment we'd have that exact performance sounding so slick and perfect that to hear it is to lay on the sidewalk, crying out the bitter tears of your past excesses whilst praying to either God or the Devil to exonerate you from the long nights of fuckup that you can not get over anymore. Maybe it is Grace itself that makes this album a flawed one on so many production levels, because if it were perfect as the first two Danzig albums were, it would surely be the best, and those warts, those hideous little rough patches of skin on its otherwise smooth bum, make it an actually listenable album instead of some super slick, hyper aware masterpiece that actually caused the destruction of at least two worlds in some weird Douglas Adams type universe.

Danzig's tenure with the Misfits consistently showcased his gift for catchy melodies and powerful riffs. This album proves that he has not lost his touch, although now it is in the context of heavy metal as opposed to B-Movie punk.

This is just a great set of songs, propelled along by Danzig's impressive Elvis-like crooning. There are plenty of soft moments as well as the requisite rockers, a feat which Danzig's style of singing allows him to pull of with aplomb. The sprawling title track is a fantastic example of this, starting out gentle before the awesome main riff comes crashing down. Other highlights include "Godless" and "Anything," but all the songs are quite good.

This is solid album through and through, and an excellent addition to any collection.
