Greg Prato of RollingStone.com reports: A few months ago, Lita Ford hooked up with producer Greg Hampton, and work began on "Wicked Wonderland" (co-produced by Ford, husband Jim Gillette, and Hampton) her first studio release since 1995. "The new album is extremely heavy, extremely sexual. I would say it's my best album yet. As soon as you hear the vocals and lead guitar, you know it's Lita. But at the same time, it's completely different, because it's so heavy." While Ford describes the entire album as "slamming" — as proven by such cuts as "Scream" and "Betrayal" — it's the album's lone ballad that stands out for her. "'Sacred' is probably my favorite track, because it was written for me from my husband. It's a beautiful song."
Recently, Ford has also hit the road for select shows, and is planning more gigs for the fall. In addition to reviving her music career, Ford recently lent her voice to the upcoming video game, Brütal Legend, which also features the voices of Jack Black, Lemmy Kilmister, and Rob Halford, as well as the aforementioned Lita song, "Betrayal". "I'm 'Queen Rima' in the game — the queen of my troops," she says. "We go out to kick some ass. I get axed, electrocuted, and thrown off a second story building… and I manage to survive the whole thing!"
