Gazzarri's was a popular nightclub in Sunset Strip (demolished in 1995 and replaced by Key Club) which was a home to many big names such as The Doors, Van Halen, Motley Crue, long before they being discovered, and Shark Island was one of the home band in the 80s that's been highly praised for their energetic and bombastic live performances. Richard Black, the lead singer, was the trump card of the band, the champion that's responsible for introducing the seductive snake dance and tight bike pants (which later being copied by Axl Rose) and has a large range of vocal capability.
If only this album came out earlier, Shark Island could've been big in LA, but fate wasn't on their side, not only that they failed commercially, but Richard Black's name fade away like an ash in the sand. But one thing for sure, "Law of The Order" was immortalized by many glam freaks as one of the fantastic album in 1989, unleashing excellent tracks from "Paris Calling" to the spectacular "Shake For Me", from the emotional ballad of "Why Should I Believe" to the mid-tempo "Bad For Each Other".
A tremendous unnoticed album of the 80s, two thumbs up!
