Even though he's done way more drugs and fucked way more chicks than you ever will, Billy Idol has always sort of seemed like a poseur. Probably because the sneering pop punker's tunes were so perfectly produced, they got played everywhere from adult contemporary radio and Jewish weddings to underground bars and strip clubs - that is, until 1993's Cyberpunk, a foray into electronica that left everyone going "Ick." Twelve years later, it's like Cyberpunk never happened, and Idol's reunited with guitarist Steve Stevens and producer Keith Forsey for some pretty catchy tracks. His lyrics may be simplistically dumb, but his songs are well constructed. Stevens's signature guitar hooks and Idol's vocal melodies are both recognizable, which makes Devil's Playground feel simultaneously new and nostalgic.
