Every few years the Nuremberg Hardrocker Private Angel surprises us with a solid song collection. In 1999 the whole thing was called "The Truth", seven years later they surpassed their debut by far with "Selling Off Time In Wonderland". According to the album title "Nailed!" hits the famous nail on the head. No wonder, after all, the Franconian quartet has been active for 25 years and the musicians gained experience in bands like Wildcat or Vacancy. Not that they will now receive the Innovation Award for "Nailed", they are far from it. But Private Angel's never sounded more racy. Songs like the title song, "Shine On" or "My Haunt" don't get out of your head so quickly, and it's exactly this quality that distinguishes the band from many of their comrades-in-arms. As they don't compromise as usual (except for a ballad), they will only be noticed by die-hard fans because of their slightly eighties-affine sound.
