CD: Burns Blue - What If....
From: Monsieur Renard Date: October 21, 2016 at 5:37
Great to see Sam Blue reacting to this CD (see comment above). Has anyone noticed yet?

CD: Strangeways - Where Do We Go From Here Live At Firefest 2010
From: Monsieur Renard Date: October 21, 2016 at 4:31
Holy shit. This is really great stuff. Sympathatic Terry Brock thanks the crowd and his bandmates in between every song and he's right: he has some of the most talented musicians in the world in his band. Just listen to Never Gonna Lose It for maybe the best guitarsolo ever played.

CD: Holy Soldier - Encore
From: hair metal again Date: October 21, 2016 at 4:15
pretty good live release for HOLY SOLDIER ,something like the final chapter of a band that was really talentedand had its moments!the first 2 releases are excellent and this shows in this one too as the song from these are by far thwe best!only for die hard fans !

CD: Seven - Shattered
From: Axe Slinger Date: October 20, 2016 at 20:02
I thought very highly of this disc as well. The singer reminds me of Mark(Marcie) Free from the Signal era and the guitars are mixed extremely well. Very enjoyable disc. 88/100

CD: Stranger - No More Dirty Deals
From: CLOUD FORCE Date: October 20, 2016 at 19:13
Great album.the track 'She's a dancer' alone is worth buyin the album.

CD: Seven - Shattered
From: 123charpenay Date: October 20, 2016 at 14:26
do you remenber 'angel tears' from golden farm ,a fabulous spanish a o r band?this new seven s cd look like a brother to 'angel tears'.it s a top class a o r realise.the production is perfect ,clear and strong;the singer is excellent ,his voice is perfect for this kind of melodic rock.no fillers only killers a o r songs with a beautiful mix of guitar and keyboards.no ballad on this album.this record is an orgy of exeptional a o r,a wet dream for all a o r lovers of this planet.the japan bonus track 'world of make believe' is at the same very hight level than the other songs.for sure this jewel will be in all the top ten s list of 2016!!!!!!!!!!

CD: AC/DC - Blow Up Your Video
From: petermexico13 Date: October 19, 2016 at 14:21
Blow Up Your Video llegó en 1988, casi al terminar la década de los 80, Una época extraña para esta banda, mientras sus lanzamientos no llegaron a tener el impacto al que estaban acostumbrados, mantuvieron su grandeza gracias a sus actuaciones en vivo, que es lo que siempre han hecho mejor en toda su carrera, AC DC es una banda para disfrutar a todo volumen en tu stereo, pero en vivo son los más grandes, una legión de seguidores de todas las edades los respaldan a donde quiera que vayan, este disco aunque pasó hasta cierto punto desapercibido, cualquier verdadero fan conoce perfectamente cada canción de este trabajo, 'Heatseeker' 'Thats the Way I Wanna R n R', 'Ruff Stuff' 'Go Zone' 'Kisssin Dinamyte' ' Two´s Up' para mí son fantásticas y demostraron que AC DC estaba más vivo que nunca, así lo demuestran en su posterior disco de la mano de un gran productor como Bruce Fairbain. Es ahí donde se quedaron cortos después de haber trabajado con el gran Mutt Lange.

CD: AC/DC - Bonfire
From: petermexico13 Date: October 19, 2016 at 13:51
Great Collection of songs with Bon Scott, and the Great Back in Black, for die hard fans, but AC DC have million of them, Es difícil resistirse a la tentación de escuchar más canciones de AC DC con Bon Scott, un tributo a su amigo desaparecido muchos años atrás. Cualquier fan de AC DC siempre encontrará placer en escuchar algo más de esta banda que tantas satisfacciones y buenos momentos nos han dejado a través de su música legendaria. Mientras haya AC DC no nos vamos a cansar nunca de escucharlos!! Ahora que atraviesan un momento difícil y crucial veremos si son capaces de sorprendernos otra vez. Mientras, Gracias AC DC por ser parte del soundtrack de nuestras vidas!!

CD: Shaw-Blades - Influence
From: Monsieur Renard Date: October 19, 2016 at 10:16
This is really great stuff. No hardrock or heavy songs, just beautiful melodies. These two rockgiants can sing harmonies perfectly. And they chose the perfect songs. It's a solid covers-cd.

CD: Ice Tiger - Love 'N Crime
From: hair metal again Date: October 19, 2016 at 8:32
excellent hard rock release for ICE TIGER ,a band that comes from Australia but it sounds like a US one!great ,guitars,keys and vocals with great melodies and some great songs like 'lonely heart','running for cover' and 'little runaway' are offered here!get it

CD: Tyketto - Reach
From: Axe Slinger Date: October 18, 2016 at 19:34
Wow. I was not expecting this from Tyketto. Dig In Deep was decent but just didn't hold my attention for long. Reach certainly will. DV sounds great and the guitar playing is fantastic. If this is the same Chris Green that played on the Pride discs then it makes all sense as those two discs were great. Another fantastic 2016 disc that may be in my top 5. 94/100

CD: Hardline - Human Nature
From: Axe Slinger Date: October 18, 2016 at 19:29
123, I completely agree. Danger Zone was really good but Human Nature is tremendous. I had flashbacks to 1992 when I heard 'Nobody's Fool' as well. 2016 has has some stellar discs and this is one of the best. 93/100

CD: Hardline - Human Nature
From: 123charpenay Date: October 18, 2016 at 14:17
danger zone their last cd was an exceptional aor affair,a sublime hard f m record with only killer songs.receive today 'human nature' directly from cd japan and ....it s a shock.what fabulous new realise!!!!!!!the jewel is more oriented guitar than 'danger zone'.josh ramos ,their new guitarist make a festival so we have the feeling sometimes to listen their first extraordinary debut album 'double eclipse'.listen to for example 'nobody s fool' and you will come back in 1992.this record is varied ,all songs are very catchy and will enter easely in your brain.track 4 'trapped in muddy waters' have a delicious southern vibe.tracks 3 and 7 are two beautiful ballads.track 12 the japan bonus track is a magnificent different version of 'take me home'.for sure hardline have made one of the best record of 2016 ,maybe the best.2016 is a fireworks of fantastic melodic rock realise.

CD: Overland - Contagious
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 15, 2016 at 13:43
Decent album with some good songs in it but the FM sound(obviously)is far too heard in here that the sensation is like listening to the aforementioned band rather than the man being himself...tracks 3,4(nice),5(nice),6,8,9 & 11 are ok with me.83/100

CD: Private Life - Shadows
From: 123charpenay Date: October 14, 2016 at 17:07
eddie van halen is a sensational guitarist ok but like producer....hum he is very bad.his production is very cheap it s the weak point of this record.ok with rick 'amazing grace' is a filler but the other songs are really great despite a very poor production.

CD: Cruzh - Cruzh
From: 123charpenay Date: October 14, 2016 at 17:00
the jap bonus is the best track of this record?it s a joke.this poor version have absoluty no interest.

CD: Black Rose - Bright Lights Burnin' - The Anthology
From: hair metal again Date: October 14, 2016 at 10:49
BLACK ROSE...a fantastic band and the closest thing i ve heard to TOKYO BLADE &ICON!this anthology has the most of their great songs and all the details of their history!strange that this band never made it big...essential

CD: Cruzh - Cruzh
From: DazBuFF Date: October 14, 2016 at 2:38
this cd is great and the japan bonus track makes getting the japan cd worth it!!!!!! set me free the slow piano version aka (epic version) is the best song on the cd!!!!!!

CD: Airbourne - Breakin' Outta Hell
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: October 12, 2016 at 19:45
I actually like this disc, although I agree that Running Wild is still the gold standard for these guys. I also admit that they survive largely on the power of the riff. And a great riff can save an otherwise lackluster song like 'Alll For Rock 'n' Roll.' I cringe through the chorus, but the smile is back everytime that riff rolls around. So if Running Wild is Airbourne's Back In Black, Breakin' Outta Hell isn't exactly their Blow Up Your video, and it's certainly no Stiff Upper Lip. The only song I really don't like is, naturally, the single 'Rivalry,' but favorites are 'Get Back Up,' 'Never Too Loud,' 'Going To Hell' and 'Down On You' despite its almost Steeel Panther-like lyrics. 'Do Me' and 'I Go Crazy' aren't bad either.

CD: Hardline - Danger Zone
From: Doug Date: October 12, 2016 at 14:28
Just picked this up and am liking it.

CD: Blackfoot - King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents Blackfoot
From: 123charpenay Date: October 12, 2016 at 13:36
totally agree with the others comments,especially hair metal again.'livin in the city' is a super song very catchy,a hit.

CD: Cruzh - Cruzh
From: 123charpenay Date: October 12, 2016 at 13:34
i have a very great recipe for you.you mix art nation and heat and then you add a little touch of reckless love.result:cruzh.cruzh is not as good than these three bands but cruzh belong to the new wawe of scandi a o r.great sound ,great production for a fresh,modern and catchy a o r.the singer is decent not more but it s sufficient for the kind of melodic rock.it s not sufficient for the two ballads track 4 and 11 cause the singer have not the voice for.he is far far away from klaus meine or johnny goelli for example.except the two ballads the other songs are excellent with great choruses and with a great mix of guitars and keyboards.the japan bonus track is a poor piano version of the hit 'set me free'.this cd is not the best of the year ,but it s a new star in the brilliant sky of 2016.hey rick ,joe elliot,def leppard are you sure?friendship from france.

CD: Blackfoot - King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents Blackfoot
From: hair metal again Date: October 12, 2016 at 6:11
ok live release for BLACKFOOT and a nice addition for die hard fans!raw live sound,a lot of jam and some great melodic lines are offered here with 'livin in the city' being the highlight!good stuff

CD: Airless - Airless
From: edukiki Date: October 12, 2016 at 3:58
Este guitarrista no tiene absolutamente nada que ver con VAN HALEN, no suena para nada a el, esta bastante lejos El sonido de este guitarrista es bastante parecido a el sonido del guitarrista de TRIXTER , STEVE BROWN, los riffs son muy parecidos Incluso hasta la voz del vocalista recuerda totalmente a discos de TRIXTER, como Human Era y New Audio Machine compararlo con Eddie, por favor, un poco de cordura

CD: Airbourne - Breakin' Outta Hell
From: visitor Date: October 11, 2016 at 14:39
Tentacle took the words right out of my mouth. It seems that they put out good stuff every two albums. Running Wild was a hell of a debut album, No Guts No Glory didn't have the same quality of songwriting plus it was way too long. Black Dog Barking was great, and it seemed like the band had evolved, even somewhat matured on that album. So I was very much looking forward to Breakin' Outta Hell, but unfortunately this is another album that - hopefully! - falls between two great albums. The guys can grind out riffs, but I find the songs way too repetitive. Also, I can't help but feel embarrassed about the lyrics. Yes, this is booze rock, meant to play loud while you're having a party. But still, even the debut album had more imagination with the lyrics. This feels like lazy work; as if the band didn't really bother to do their best. Just rush together some riffs with lyrics that don't have anything to say really. Come on guys, not everyone wants to listen to your music drunk as hell!

CD: Airbourne - Breakin' Outta Hell
From: tentacle Date: October 11, 2016 at 10:56
In my opinion Black Dog Barking (2013) is their best album with debut Running Wild (2007) coming in as a close second. No Guts, No Glory (2010) has 4-5 highlights and the best parts of Breakin' Outta Hell are no match for those, so this 2016 effort is the worst in their catalogue. Sad but true. Energy is still there, but the songwriting is seriously lacking the hooks.

CD: Stranger - No More Dirty Deals
From: hair metal again Date: October 11, 2016 at 8:43
fantastic release once again by the great STRANGER!smashing hard rock sound with killer songs and a great balance between keys and guitars!it s really strange that these guys didnt have bigger success ,as their music is of the highest quality!'she s a dancer','9this time)gonna love you baby','i know i tried' 'end of the line ' are sensational songs indeed!STRANGER...what a band

CD: Airplay - Airplay
From: Monsieur Renard Date: October 11, 2016 at 6:00
Nice uplifting, uptempo westcoast lite AOR. Reminds me of Toto. Great stuff, great vocals.

CD: The - The Front
From: Monsieur Renard Date: October 11, 2016 at 4:59
Really decent album. The (electronic) drums are sometimes kind of annoying. But Funderburk really shines here, as do the guitarparts by Dan Huff.

CD: Bon Jovi - 7800 Degrees Fahrenheit
From: SergioHardArg Date: October 10, 2016 at 14:54
No solo es el mejor disco de Bon Jovi por lejos sino una de los mejores discos de la historia del Hard rock.

CD: Tora Tora - Surprise Attack
From: hair metal again Date: October 10, 2016 at 3:41
superb hair metal debut for TORA TORA ,a band that has a great groove that we 80 s hard rockers love!great musicianship ,guitars ,songs and a sound that reminds me of TESLA in general!'guilty','walking shoes','love s a bitch' and 'phantom rider' are exceptional!essential and brings back great memos of my youth!

CD: Toja - (Sad) Songs Of Hope
From: andi Date: October 9, 2016 at 14:26
One of the beste Hardrock Albums i've Never heard!!!!My fave song'Take me home'...amazing guitars,great chorus!!

CD: Shy - Excess All Areas
From: Monzter Date: October 8, 2016 at 3:42
One of the best albums, packed full of catchy songs with big melodies. Music does not get any better than this. 97/100

CD: Crash N' Burn - Fever
From: hair metal again Date: October 8, 2016 at 1:04
excellent debut for CRASH N BURN and i still remember me buying that vinyl just right when it was released!straight hard rocking sound with some good lines and a sleazy attitude here and there!it certailly has a quality and offers many great songs.good stuff

CD: Lizzy Borden - Menace to Society
From: dany69 Date: October 7, 2016 at 19:28
COBRA Fuck you Dude,!!!! Go listin your Lady GAGA and don't say that Lizzy suck,cause you suck Dirt Ball

CD: Status Quo - Whatever You Want
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 7, 2016 at 16:06
I own 2 versions of this same album,the other one is called 'Now Hear This'(1980)...best cuts for me are undoubtebly 'Whatever You Want'(which is a classic)along with 'Who Asked You','Your Smiling Face','Runaway' & 'Breaking Away'.80/100

CD: 21 Guns - Nothing's Real
From: BDrums1971 Date: October 7, 2016 at 15:07
'Come on in, Close the door, Would you please tell me how you've been, By the way, I hope you'll stay, And let the cold end where love begins.' That's how I hear the chorus.

CD: 21 Guns - Nothing's Real
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: October 6, 2016 at 12:59
great album but I have a question...can anyone tell me what the lyrics are to 'Come On In'?? Specifically the chrous... you can post in here or send it to my e-mail add...southrngntlmn1@yahoo.com

CD: Livesay - Darkest Hour
From: andi Date: October 6, 2016 at 7:47
The First once is the better album,this once is more melodic

CD: Horse London - Horse London
From: hair metal again Date: October 6, 2016 at 4:36
for us who listen to hard rock music from way back HORSE LONDON s debut is a cult release ..bought that one when it was out and really enjoyed it ...a blend of FATER PUSSYCAT,ALMIGHTY,TATTOOED LOVE BOYS and you get an idea of what s HORSE LONDON about!revisiting it always give me the sleaze feel i want

CD: Ailafar - No Limits
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 5, 2016 at 11:30
Decent Melodic Rock/AOR album...best cuts for me are 3,5,6,9(nice ballad),10,11,12(nice)& 13...nice to listen while drinking a good hot cup of Greek coffee .80/100

CD: Paul Laine - Stick It In Your Ear
From: hair metal again Date: October 5, 2016 at 5:34
excellent debut for PAUL LAINE under the guidance of Bruce Fairbairn !the Bon Jovi influence is there and Paul also shows his talent in songwriting!there are 1 0r 2 fillers but when its good there s no limit:'dorianna','we are the young','is it love','break down the barricades'!essential of course

CD: Great White - Once Bitten
From: petermexico13 Date: October 4, 2016 at 20:37
Great White cds need remaster treatment, all of them are great, the first period is awesome!, This is their best for me! Uno de mis grupos favoritos salidos de los Estados Unidos, mucha calidad en temas e interpretación, un sonido distinto a las tendencias del momento pero sin duda de lo mejor salido ese año de 1987, canciones memorables, como ' Lady Red Light', ' la estupenda 'All Over Now' y la joya de su discografía 'Rock Me'. Imperdible, si no lo tienes, a comprarlo!, si no los conoces. éste es el álbum para empezar!!.

CD: Toto - Kingdom Of Desire
From: petermexico13 Date: October 4, 2016 at 20:25
Este es un disco muy distinto a su etapa de los años 80, inician la década de los 90 con el recopilatorio Past to Present que significó debut y despedida del cantante Jean-Michel Byron, enseguida empiezan la grabación de este trabajo aún con Jeff Porcaro a la batería, y muere unas semanas antes de ser lanzado, por lo que queda como un tributo a uno de sus líderes y formadores de la banda, en este disco es Steve Lukather quien lleva ls riendas, en cuanto a la voz y composiciones, con un sonido más duro y directo destacan cortes como ' Don´t Chain My Heart' # Jake to the Bone' , ' Gypsy Train', la balada 'Only You', es un disco que hay que escuchar con detenimiento para encontrar la calidad de estas canciones. En lo personal uno que disfruto mucho, insisto, Toto es una banda infravalorada, estupendos músicos tanto de estudio como en vivo.

CD: Toto - Toto IV
From: petermexico13 Date: October 4, 2016 at 12:50
Increíble que este disco tenga tan pocas reseñas, sobretodo de personas que se autonombran excelentes conocedores de este género tan grande como es el AOR, sin duda TOTO IV es uno de los discos más importantes no sólo del género y de la década de los 80, sino también de la música en general, es imposible no ponerte de buenas cuando alguna de sus más clásicas canciones son tocadas en cualquier parte, este es uno de esos discos que casi todo el mundo conoce ( por no decir absolutamente todos ), y el disco que colocó a estos estupendos músicos en la memoria eterna de varias generaciones, sus 3 temas más conocidos son parte de la historia de la música, el tema ' Afraid of Love' uno de mis favoritos de TOTO, 'Waiting for Your Love y 'Make Believe' también son grandes composiciones, si por alguna razón no han escuchado este disco completo, no pierdan oportunidad sobretodo ahora que han sido reeditados con un gran sonido. Un grupo de grandes músicos que merecen más reconocimiento.

CD: Eva - Blue
From: TYNOBSK Date: October 4, 2016 at 10:15
Both cd's are excellent quality AOR music . Good vocal variation , keyboards,and no filler song . Well Done !

CD: Glorious Bankrobbers - Dynamite Sex Doze
From: TYNOBSK Date: October 4, 2016 at 10:06
This cd reminds me from Davy Vain , L.A. Guns . Good !

CD: Blackjack - Anthology
From: hair metal again Date: October 4, 2016 at 6:28
this one contains the 2 albums of BLACKJACK and of course a great collection of songs by a band that had a lot of potential!their sound capture the late 70 s hard rock spirit with a commercial approach and it s mainly based on Bruce s great guitar work !imagine the BABYS with Michael Bolton singing and you get an idea!'heart of stone','without your love','stay' and 'airwaves' are the highlights!get it if you find it

CD: 21 Guns - Demolition
From: BDrums1971 Date: October 3, 2016 at 5:05
Oh My God! This is pure heaven!! Except for the lack of production, this is to me just about perfect! I love the mix of guitars and keys and the hi tech edge to the songs. It all mixes just perfectly for me. And the true icing on the cake is Tommy's vocals. Man, that guy can sing!!! Between the first 21 Guns cd and this one, I have fallen in love with his singing. Can anyone recommend other cd's in this vein? In case you wondered, Tommy sang on A=440's 1986 ST disc. Not as good as this, but still worth getting.

CD: Kharma - Wonderland
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 1, 2016 at 12:26
Great and solid album to say the least ...i can hear an old Styx sound along with some others such as Foreigner,Journey,Survivor,Joe Lynn Turner,Deep Purple,Rainbow or even Giant...tracks 1,2(nice),3(reminds me strongly of 'Stone In Love' by Journey),4(nice),5,6(strongly ala Survivor),9,10,11,12,13(nice solid ballad)& 14 are directly in my book of music....recommended stuff...92/100

CD: Howe II - High Gear
From: edwithmj Date: October 1, 2016 at 9:25
Time to expand... If you love Greg's first solo album as much as I do, you'll really love this venture into the mainstream. His brother, Albert, handles vocals and his voice is very similar to David Lee Roth's except it's more gravelly and he's able to hit a lot more notes. The songs, are similar in style to Van Halen's first two albums except are a bit more polished. Greg himself is a flawless shredder and his playing style really fits in with the style of music here. The opener, High Gear, has an extremely catchy riff that you won't get out of your head for ages. Carry The Torch is another catchy hard rocker. Other highlights are Ferocious and the lower-tempo Social Fever. This is fast becoming one of my favourite albums that I keep coming back to.

CD: Great White - Once Bitten
From: 123charpenay Date: September 30, 2016 at 10:23
i can add that 'rock me' is a monument.one of the best song never writen and played by a hard rock n roll band.

CD: Warrant - Ultraphobic
From: dany69 Date: September 29, 2016 at 18:28
just can't believe some peoples here talk this way,((( all those supposed hard rocker,,LOL,,,First,this is a wonderful warrant album,one of the best,,,,just listenin the song stronger now and maybe some fool here will understand the dead of Jani,!!! this is not alternative or grunge album,,,this is just more mature,,,,Jani was tired to be the cherry pie boy's,!! so that's why he make this,,he just wanted to the peoples that he can write such good songs like stronger now,,chameleon,,,sum of one,,!!!! but like i see,,some can't understand this again,,,,so go listin some pretty boy floyd,,,,,Pathetic

CD: 2 A.M. - When Every Second Counts
From: nimzo Date: September 29, 2016 at 16:59
Very good album of hi tech AOR/westcoast. They introduce great touch of saxophone. The best tracks here are:'Never Nevea Let You Escape', 'You're the One', the more heavy 'Lost Souls' and the precious 'Now You're Leaving'. 85/100

CD: Gotthard - Need to Believe
From: Doug Date: September 29, 2016 at 15:28
'Unconditional Faith' is my fave tune on this one.

CD: Night Ranger - Feeding Off the Mojo
From: Doug Date: September 28, 2016 at 13:33
Picked this up the other day, curious to hear NR sound without Blades and Watson. IMO, Jack Blades is so talented that he is hard to replace, but I thought this album was pretty decent. Surprised Gary Moon did not land somewhere else? Maybe he did, not sure?

CD: Horsepower - Virginity
From: hair metal again Date: September 28, 2016 at 3:18
good hard rock music for HORSEPOWER ,a band from Finland that does the basics ok and that remind me a bit of GRINGOL LOCOS!dont expect something extraordinary ,but everything is in an acceptable level!'weekend wizard','bad hearted woman' and 'sweet charity' are the highlights!

CD: Lonely Heart - Mirage
From: andi Date: September 27, 2016 at 7:16
Cheap and slow Version of T.N.T...this is not heavy to me..mich more slow Songs than interesting fast once..better take the original T.N.T records!!

CD: Kansas - Always Never the Same
From: petermexico13 Date: September 26, 2016 at 19:52
Es un hecho que en un momento específico del tiempo muchas bandas decidieron lanzar versiones sinfónicas de sus grandes éxitos, en lo personal no son de mi agrado en general, alguna que otra canción puede elevar su sonido y ser memorable, pero si hay algún grupo que puede y merece lanzar un disco así, es KANSAS!!, sus arreglos y su estilo musical se prestan a la perfección para lograr fundirse mejor que nadie, cada uno de los pasajes están muy bien logrados, si hay algo que reprochar es que no haya sido un disco doble dado que dejaron fuera muchas canciones importantes de cada época, es cierto que el Cover de los Beatles pudiera sorprender en lugar de algún tema original, por otra parte es bienvenido que las bandas rindan tributo a su héroes que los inspiraron para llegar a ser lo que hoy en día representan, Leyendas de la música americana!

CD: Kansas - The Classic Albums Collection 1974-1983 (Box Set)
From: petermexico13 Date: September 26, 2016 at 19:28
Simply one of the best American Bands!! Love all of their music, Kansas is unique!. Soy sin duda un apasionado de cada canción y cada álbum que ha lanzado este grupo, desde sus orígenes con un sonido único, inconfundible e irrepetible, no es para todos, pero una vez que te atrapa nunca dejarás de escucharlos. Clásicos a más no poder y uno de los mejores ejemplos de que también se hace buena música de este lado del atlántico. A disfrutar su discografía de su primera época, abarcando los primeros 10 años de grabaciones donde alcanzaron su status de clásicos. Long Live Kansas!!!

CD: Lance Keltner - Lance Keltner
From: hair metal again Date: September 26, 2016 at 8:24
very good release for LANCE KELTNER with a fantastic production and work by Jack Ponti!the songs are great and its a def grower ,as it gets better and better with every spin!Lance s way of singing is beautiful and overall a nice vibe is created.'i m dangerous','if you really love me','the party s over' are great songs!good stuff

CD: Four By Fate - Relentless
From: bugrarife Date: September 25, 2016 at 8:07
the best rock album I heard in long time. Gem for me.

CD: Europe - Wings Of Tomorrow
From: Metal Fox Date: September 25, 2016 at 2:43
This whole album smokes! Not a bad track on this one at all. This is Europe at their hardest and most heaviest. Highlights on here are 'Scream of Anger', 'Treated Bad Again', 'Wasted Time', 'Lyin' Eyes' and even 'Aphasia' (the instrumental) is phenomenal. If you're a new fan of Europe, this is a pretty good album to start with. I'll give it a 100/100 because every song on here is AWESOME!

CD: Honeymoon Suite - Racing After Midnight
From: Metal Fox Date: September 24, 2016 at 4:19
This release is a big improvement over the very overrated 'Big Prize' album. Like 'Prize', this album starts off strong with a hard party rocker, this time it's 'Lookin' Out for Number One'. After that, the next couple of songs are alright, but nothing spectacular. The band makes up for the album's slow start by stringing together 5 FANTASTIC rock tracks in the second half. Tracks 1 and 5 along with all 5 tracks of the second half are the highlights on here. Pretty good album overall. Not as good as the debut, but a huge improvement over 'The Big Prize'. I'll give it a 86/100.

CD: Honeymoon Suite - The Big Prize
From: Metal Fox Date: September 23, 2016 at 20:05
Pretty overrated album in my opinion. People often describe this as being their best album, but I personally feel that it doesn't even come close to that level of greatness. When I first heard the opener, 'Bad Attitude', along with 'Feel it Again', they both rocked so hard, I thought that this album was going to be a classic. But then you start to get a couple of average songs and then you get a couple of awful ones after that. Listening to 'Wounded' and 'Words in the Wind' back to back sound almost exactly the same, but with different lyrics, 'What Does it Take' is just downright cheesy and 'Take My Hand' is a totally atrocious filler. I do like 'All Along You Knew' though. That song is quite nice. I gave this album a 62/100 because there are about 5 songs on here that are good or great and the rest are either average or completely brutal.

CD: Danger Danger - The Return of the Great Gildersleeves
From: hair metal again Date: September 23, 2016 at 10:17
excellent release for the legendary DANGER DANGER ,a band that always delivers cause Bruno &Steve as they admit listened to great hard rockin bands when they were young and that shows in their music!not the typical early 90 s sound ,a bit more updated ,but aleays commercial hard rock music!as always monsterous songs like 'she s gone','grind','when she s good she s good' and 'i do '!essential

CD: Saints and Sinners - Saints and Sinners
From: Metal Fox Date: September 22, 2016 at 19:44
An amazing album from an extremely underrated band that deserved so much better. There is not one bad song on here, the whole album smokes! My favourites on this one are 'Shake', 'Rip it Up', 'Kiss the Bastards', 'We Belong' and 'Frankenstein'. A must have for any fan of Hard Rock/Heavy Metal music. I'm gonna go all the way here and give this album a full 100/100.

CD: Steel Panther - Feel the Steel
From: hair metal again Date: September 22, 2016 at 11:25
pretty good debut for STEEL PANTHER with a kick ass musicianship,songwriting,production ,but def the worst lyrics ever heard!such a pitty cause the band is excellent and especially Satchel s work!'fat girl','community property','party all day' and 'stripper girl' are excellent songs even though they re copycats of the well known anthems of the hair metal era!great band,awful lyrics &attitude

CD: Europe - Start From The Dark
From: Metal Fox Date: September 22, 2016 at 4:22
The year is 2004, Europe has recently reunited and decided to release their first new studio album of original material since 1991's 'Prisoners in Paradise'. Instead of making a vintage 80's sounding album, Europe opt to take the more modern approach. At first, this modern style seems to work and it seems to suit Europe quite well, and it comes off sounding like a more modern take on their previous album from '91 (which was DYNAMITE!), but then the album starts to drag in the second half. Highlights on this include the first 6 tracks, plus 'Sucker'. I give this one a 76/100.

CD: Bryan Adams - Into The Fire
From: Metal Fox Date: September 21, 2016 at 19:30
This has to be most underrated album from Bryan Adams. But again, the massive success of 'Reckless' was a tough act to follow and the end result was overlooked. This album is just as good as 'Reckless' and 'Cuts Like a Knife' even tough some of the songwriting is a little more serious. Highlights on here are the first 6 tracks plus 'Hearts on Fire' and 'Home Again'. I give it a 97/100.

CD: Dust - Soulburst
From: juan carlos Date: September 21, 2016 at 14:42
Ok Bluesy HardRock ala old Whitesnake or Badlands, Polished production & Good singer, 'Waiting for you' is a cool bluesy slow track, nothing more to add. 75/100

CD: Babylon A.D. - Nothing Sacred
From: hair metal again Date: September 21, 2016 at 4:27
hair metal masterpiece for the legendary BABYLON A.D. and for us that lived it when it was released ,revisiting it after so many years brings back great memories of our youth!superb performing ,great hard rockin songs ,attitude,looks ,everything you need is here:'take the dog off the chain','bad blood','so savage the heart' 'sacrifice your love' are sensational indeed and overall Nothing Sacred an absolute classic

CD: King Company - One For the Road
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 20, 2016 at 22:06
I checked this out expecting a couple good songs and a lot of that Santa Cruz/Reckless Love silliness that these Scandinavians so easily fall prey to. What a surprise, this is actually really good! The soaring vocals and lovely lyrics would be pleasing to an AOR fan, but the music itself has a heavy, 'majestic,' almost power-metal going on that keeps it from being weak and watery. Lots of guitar flash, too. Kinda reminds me of a mix of Badlands and XYZ, especially in the vocals, but musically maybe someone heavier like Leatherwolf. For somebody that's finally growing a little bored with constantly rehashing the '80's, this is a real gem, and definitely going to make my year-end list.

CD: Motley Crue - Supersonic and Demonic Relics
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 20, 2016 at 17:37
Decent compilation of rarities is my honest opinion about this release...tracks 1,2,5,9(cover Sex Pistols)10,11(this cut can be in any Tommy Lee's side techno projects jejeje),12 & 15(good live version).80/100

CD: Dead Bang - Dancin' on the Edge
From: juan carlos Date: September 20, 2016 at 0:25
Good Hardrock indeed, Good production/Vibe, catchy choruses ('Take it All' 'On the Road ' 'Hot Blooded'), 'Don't Need Your Love' good ballad, the rest is ok in my book. Good purchase and Recommended of course! 85/100

CD: Freak of Nature - Gathering of Freaks
From: Wardy Date: September 19, 2016 at 7:52
See my Debut SelfTitled comments for this one too but rate this record a 9 minimum, lyrically musically performances sound, the whole kit and caboodle pay dividends. Without a doubt on par with the 90's greats, Gathering Of Freaks is an underappreciated classic!

CD: Freak of Nature - Freak of Nature
From: Wardy Date: September 19, 2016 at 7:48
Hey, .oved White Lion as much as the next fan but who knew right? Who knew born from the ashes of the magnificent White Lion would be the arguably better Freak Of Nature? Man I recall being excited that Mike was back and hitting play and BAM, couldn't believe my %÷0ng ears, this was fantastic stuff and remains so to this day. Never tire of the FON records, easily some of Mike's finest lyrics to date. Not the grunge bandwagon jump many of the US rags claimed in fact much of these tunes still flirted the WhiteLion template albeit dressed in the current ilk, hey Europe embraced 'em but unfortunately not enough to see the band thrive to survive internal presssures splitting the band at their GatheringOfFreaks peak. RescueMe remains a personal fave but Possessed, TurnTheOtherWay, EVERY track is raw class. Devastating this band didn't continue truly one of the best oldschoolers moving into a new age. Magnificent and as good as the Soundgardens etc. This rated an 8.5 Gathering a 9 minimum.

CD: White Lion - Mane Attraction
From: Wardy Date: September 19, 2016 at 7:18
Not as immediate or fancy as its predecessors but a far more back to front fullfilling listen. Once upon a time WhiteLion were known for occasionally stepping away from the party, ManeAttraction is heavy on wordly views and in doing so exudes a road weary trodden down but experienced band making good on their crown. Sure there's some compulsory fodder but even those are high calibre. Recorded Broken Heart is magnificent, She's Got Everything silly but head nodding brilliance and for all its lyrical dumbness there's got to be a backstory to the engaging OutWithTheBoys can't but sing along. Too many ballads yes but they too value add, the bottom end groove to It'sOver kicks and LoveDontComeEasy is solid. The mighty Lights&Thunder rages outta the box, Warsong is thundering possibly a prelude to Mike's wonderful transition to FreakOfNature and the finale FarewellToYou a perfect fitting tribute to us fans. With huge production to boot, for 91 ManeAttraction was a juggernaut of a record 8.5

CD: Fury - Fury
From: hair metal again Date: September 19, 2016 at 4:45
very good release for FURY back in the mid 80 s and this one captures exactly the spirit of that era with its production (drums) and with the keys being one step in the front!the songs are fine but not great and the highlights are 'she dont know' and 'in her arms' where Robbie s voice is shining!i recently had the chance to see the guy performing live with FIND ME and i m tellin ya that he is a great rocker

CD: Dave Sharman - 1990
From: juan carlos Date: September 19, 2016 at 0:10
Good instrumental album indeed. I notice Too many influences from the mighty Joe Satriani ('Atomic Chaser'), 'Pandora's Box' is a great track as well. 80/100

CD: Diamond - Diamond
From: juan carlos Date: September 18, 2016 at 23:17
Good US Melodic Metal/Rock, 'Fight Fire With Fire' has strong choruses and a good guitar solo with lots of keys, 'Remember The Night' is my favorite track but i can't dig the singer at all. 'Rock the Nation' sounds like an anthem, just an Ok song. 'One For The Heart' is a good ballad. The instrumental 'The Inatome' not bad! 80/100

CD: Rob Moratti - Transcendent
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 17, 2016 at 11:43
Another great release as a solo artist by Rob Moratti...plenty of goodies in here dudes ...tracks 2,3(nice mid tempo),4,5,7(nice mid tempo),8,9,11(nice)& 12 are directly into my book of music.89/100

CD: Shadows Fade - Shadows Fade
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 17, 2016 at 11:01
A pretty mellow album in here with almost not 'jumping outta bed' ones shamely but yet the album is quite decent if you are into the easy listening stuff.Tracks 6,7,9(nice) & 10(nice) are the ones for me.Kevin Chalfant?,as awesome as usually is .70/100

CD: Mother's Finest - Iron Age
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 17, 2016 at 10:56
Listening to this decent heavy Hard Rock release.The band separated from the funky stuff they did previously to this album in order to get into a harder sound...'Movin' On' & 'Rock 'N' Roll 2 Nite' are my faves...tracks 5,7,8 & 10 are also appealing ones.83/100

CD: Bullet - No Mercy
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 17, 2016 at 10:41
A bit less Krokus-ish and with more of a personal feeling .Best cuts for me were 1,2,5,6,7 & 9...both albums posted of this act here at HH are in general lines enjoyable because the songs have that catchy feel but IMHO this one is a bit better than their 'Execution' effort.83/100

CD: Bullet - Execution
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 17, 2016 at 10:36

CD: Stranger - Stranger
From: hair metal again Date: September 16, 2016 at 2:18
fantastic debut for STRANGER and to me this is a milestone in the history of hard rock music!i d say that this is similar to Y&T s Earthshaker in terms of quality and how a hard rock album should been structured!back in 82 not many bands had that edge and under Tom Werman s guidance the band achieved perfection!the guitar work is outstanding,the rockers are excellent and the mid tempo s pretty good!overall STRANGER seemed flawless and it s really strange how they never hit the spot in sales and recognition!a gem all the way for sure

CD: Bullseye - On Target
From: juan carlos Date: September 14, 2016 at 21:57
'Treat me Right' wow! Great opener indeed, '7th Heaven' definately not!, 'I've Changed' good!, 'Moonwalk', 'Don't Let Him Know' 'Don't Lose a Day' & 'March On, Time' are good ones! Good Melodic Rock with a tiny touch of pompyAOR. 85/100

CD: Baron Rojo - Desafio
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 14, 2016 at 19:45
Pretty good album in here!!!...most of the songs are enjoyable ones(including the cover)being 'Rock Estimulacion' my fave cut...'Te Espero En El Infierno' starts with a kinda 'Painkiller' drum feel,'Noches De Rock & Roll' is a catchy one and so on...recommended release indeed .87/100

From: hair metal again Date: September 14, 2016 at 2:20
another fine one by GLENN HUGHES , an extremely talented musician &singer!quality all the way ,this guy writes &performsin a classy ,groovy way mixing rock with soul and funk perfectly!'take you down','don t look away' and 'curse ' are great songs

CD: Torino - Rock It
From: 123charpenay Date: September 11, 2016 at 15:40
hum one more time i m agree with the 2013 s comment of my venezuelian friend rick.i ve nothing against this band and this album but this record is decent not more.i see nothing special ,nothing extraordinary about this realise.it s a commercial (very average) realise.so they are not lucky cause 1989 was the best year ever for fabulous,sensational,extraordinary melodic rock s records.so with a so common and and average realise they have absoluty no chances to stay in the history of the melodic hard rock.

CD: Stranger - No Rules
From: hair metal again Date: September 11, 2016 at 2:07
excellent release for the fine STRANGER and a must have in every collection!really dont know why these guys never made it big and why it took me so many years to find them!great hard rock sound ,always in a commercial approach with catchy songs and many hooks is offered here !'mama,mama','wrong side of the tracks','we were wrong','3-D' and 'alligator joe' are great songs and overall a classy one

CD: Cruzh - Cruzh
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 10, 2016 at 13:04
Vocally Tony sounds like Joe Elliot here and there and that makes the songs sound like a even more Pop version of the Leppards(well The Def is more Pop than Rock nowadays so there's not much difference in the music description in here)...tracks 7,9 & 10 are really highlights ,tracks 1,2,3(here it reminded me of Work Of Art) and the 2 ballads 'Anything For You' & 'Straight From My Heart' are also appealing ones.87/100

CD: Palace - Master of the Universe
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 10, 2016 at 12:44
Wow for me this is a lovely release with a little of an average rating in here .I think in my humble opinion it deserves more...tracks 4,6 & 8 are solid mid tempos and the rest of the tracks,except 5 are directly in my book of AOR music.The band sounds 99 0iant influenced(even Michael Palace looks like a mix of the Huff brothers).Some 80's flavour combined with recent modern AOR...recommended stuff for sure .90/100

CD: Torino - Rock It
From: hair metal again Date: September 9, 2016 at 11:50
excellent release for TORINO back in 89 with a great commercial sound and some really good songs like 'seven mountains','baby blue','one in a million' and the sensational ballad 'it takes a man to cry'!the production isnt good but the band gives its heart & soul and satisfies all oldschool hard rockers around ..PS really enjoyed MrMetal s info above

From: 123charpenay Date: September 8, 2016 at 13:49

From: hair metal again Date: September 7, 2016 at 5:03

CD: Tango Down - Bulletproof
From: metalmastermusic Date: September 6, 2016 at 11:05
Very good follow up album with new singer Chas west and Axel Gessner on bass. The album has a better sound production than on previous albums as well with the drums (Keith Michaels) and bass being much more prominent on this album. Scott has some of his best riffs on this album with powerhouse songs Superstar, Punching Bag and Broken Heart. Only two songs not to my liking on this album being Going Under which is a bit generic for my taste and Edge of Goodbye a ballad. I love what TD does on their rockers and would have liked to seen a full on rocker album from them sans these two songs. Chas's vocals have never been better.

CD: Chicago - 19
From: edwithmj Date: September 5, 2016 at 19:16
Chicago have always occupied the softer side of the AOR spectrum and this album is no different. Thankfully, that isn't a problem for my musical palate but for others it might be. You're Not Alone is a wonderful ballad with perfect vocals and is definitely my favourite. I also enjoy the up-tempo duet Runaround and the softer What Kind Of Man Would I Be which again has extremely smooth vocals. Look Away is yet another ballad and my final pick is Come In From The Night. Definitely one of my favourite Chicago albums and one of my favourite AOR albums too.

CD: Tango Down - Bulletproof
From: the rocker Date: September 5, 2016 at 17:54
Very good album. I have to admit I was a little disappointed with 'Charming Devil' the album(the song itself I love), but this new one is a really good follow up up to my favorite TD album (Identity Crisis). My favorite song on the album is Carry On, such a good song(melodic, catchy sing a long chorus. Give Me A Reason, Going Under, Anything Can Change & Punching Bag are right behind it. Bulletproof, When We Were Young & Edge Of Goodbye round out the rest of my favorites. A must have!!! \m/

From: MetalllianStallion Date: September 3, 2016 at 8:06
(CON'T) It seems you where waiting with Beelzebub Baited Breath for me here, as once again I thought it was obvious that I was making a 'genre' reference to how light weight this band was compared to the fangs of it's name. I'm occasionally on Brutal Metal for cross over artists and it seems you are a aficionado of some of those darker bands. I've seen you making comments of blood and semen about some band, so you appear to follow what makes some of these bands tick(lifestyle) pretty closely. It's funny that most heavy hitter atheists I see in the public eye (Richard Dawkins,ect) talk about the delusions of someone believing in the man in the sky, so are all these Satanic bands just as delusional for believing in the man in the FLAMES? You can't have one without the other in a theological discussion. You're the kind of guy who likes to have the last word, so I will give it to you if you want to take this to the BOARDS. I will tell what I believe, and why it's not based on blind faith.

CD: Satanic Rites - No Use Crying
From: MetalllianStallion Date: September 3, 2016 at 7:42
Con't DD - You mentioned we have 'deep theological differences' several times so I want to clarify. You don't have to have a PHD. to know that 'theological' is the study of 'theology' which is defined as the study of religious faith, practice, of God and God's relation to the world. You could generalize and say a system of religious beliefs or ideas. But to my knowledge unless you have made a recent conversion, you can't have theological differences with someone who has NO belief system in God. I am guessing you are atheist/agnostic from a few comments? It's no secret that you are the Captain Coattails of HH hovering over the new comments section either doing a follow up comment to someone's existing comment or needing the inspiration to find a band to comment on that someone else recently did. I've seen you ruffle a few feathers in the past, as I'm sure I have as I am usually going for a laugh, but sometimes the other HH patron doesn't see the humor in it.

From: MetalllianStallion Date: September 3, 2016 at 7:16
(CON'T)Dept Dog, I would have preferred you went down the 'Heresy Highway' instead of Hershey, but to each his own. You would think with my FINGER WAVING as you put it I was quoting Bible verses and casting out apostates on HH. To my recollection in all my years here the only Christian references I have made is on CCM releases about any of my spiritual beliefs. As far as language the last time I brought it up was on Steel Panther, just because it's so over the top as others have made the same comments to being annoyed, without any MORAL judgment. Personally my policy says save the F Bomb to use when you really need it. The word is so over used in ever day use now it has no shock value. Show me someone who strings endless profanity together in daily conversations and I will show you someone who lacks substance (depth) in most cases. George Carlin is an exception, as he made an art form of profanity and was brilliant. Look up ' SOCIAL ENGINEERING' and how it effects peoples mindset.

For example all those dudes I see wearing their hair in a MAN BUNS = GAY for goofy fashion sense. Same goes for the lyrics of this band, as I obviously haven't researched their sexual tastes. You may not have noticed, but the media pounds Americans feeble minds daily on what to think, how to act, what to buy, hence making PC PUSSIES in mass afraid of their own shadow, especially the 35 and younger generation 'P'. I've been on this site for over a decade so if I have what you call ' A THING' for directly bashing homosexuals then find me just ONE exhibit A on HH

CD: Tesla - Mechanical Resonance Live
From: MetalllianStallion Date: September 3, 2016 at 6:22
I'll take a 30 year anniversary album of Mechanical Resonance (1986) over the last couple decades of Tesla music waste land. Of course these songs have the goods live, but Jeff's vocals with the hands of time haven't aged well and have been on a downward spiral for years, The band sounds worn-out at times- 'time's making Changes'. A person's life style (especially women) shows on their face/voice over time. Compare a woman who takes care of herself, and ages gracefully at 40 compared to another rocker chick who looks like she's been passed around like a joint at a Foghat concert. Everyone has to deal with the genetic hand they are dealt, but heavy smoker and singer don't go together. Personally I would have much rather the band strung together it's best vintage performances at their peak of powers live from 86'-90' and make a double album if they insist on doing current live versions. The album tosses in one new studio track 'Save That Goodness' (not bad) by Phil Collen (Def Leppard).

CD: Michael Sweet - One Sided War
From: MetalllianStallion Date: September 3, 2016 at 5:42
It looks like Sweet's pop-rock solo albums of yesteryear are never coming back as I think this album is a step up from 'I'm Not Your Suicide (2014)' and his hardest edged solo release to date. This album takes more of a not in your face approach in the CCM lyrics department compared to Stryper and his early solo releases. First thing you notice on the first track is that Micheal hand's off lead guitar duty from himself to Ethan Brosh (Angels Of Babylon) and Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake) who RIP IT UP, especially compared to those last couple Nightranger albums Joel played on.The songs are also more catchy and more of a overall cohesive effort, than the last solo effort. 'Radio'is a tongue-in-cheek wink to rockers who make country albums in an attempt to be relevant (Bret Michaels syndrome). I could do without the duet with 16-year-old vocalist Moriah Formica on 'Can't Take This Life', same deal he did with Dave Mustaine's daughter Electra on the last release (In my top 10 stripper names).

sue willets is very lucky cause she 'sings' since 1996 with this band.five records with a voice wich is a nightmare.she sing too high pitched it s unbearable.the stamp of her voice is a slaugther for me even if i m a very big fan of female melodic rock fronted band.i don t understand that nobody ,notably says to her 'hey sue sing under your shower only stop the slaugther'.

CD: Styx - Babe - The Collection
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 1, 2016 at 12:36
I got this compilation because I'm only a casual fan and there were just a few songs I wanted. As such, this is adequate. I question why certain songs are included, like 'heavy Metal Poisoning.' The biggest issue is that the live tracks, including 'Fooling Yourself' and 'Crystal Ball' are poor quality, sounding muffled soundboard recordings. But the songs I wanted the disc for, mainly 'Too Much Time On My Hands,' 'Long Nights,' 'Renegade' and (gulp!) 'Lorelei' are in their original form.

CD: Styx - Edge of the Century
From: hair metal again Date: September 1, 2016 at 4:27
very good release for STYX ,tryin to put some elements in their music from the hair metal movement that was on at the moment!the result is ok ,as they manage to do it in a balanced way keeping their identity!Glenn is playing his role easily and the the production,songwriting ,musicianship are in a high level!'love is the ritual','all in a day s work' and 'world tonite' are the highlights

CD: King Company - One For the Road
From: 123charpenay Date: August 31, 2016 at 13:22
since several years finland,this little country in the north of europe,is the best country of the world for melodic rock.king company is a new fabulous finnish band.they don t sound finnish like the exceptional free spirit,land of tales,brother firetribe,prayer,human temple,reckless love,stala&so,ect ect...their music is more oriented guitar so they sound melodic hard rock in the vein of whitesnake and seventh key.in a blind test it s impossible to guess that they come from the country of santa claus.even if the choruse is great track 11 is a filler,track 12 the japan bonus track is an acoustic version from 'farewell'.the rest is simply extraordinary.it s a top class melodic rock record with an excellent singer ,a perfect production and only killer songs with exceptional choruses.all these songs are very catchy and will enter in your brain immediatly.this band is very talented ,they are a factory of melodic hard rock hits.really ,2016 is a marvellous year it s a firework of super news.

CD: Glenn Hughes - Building The Machine
From: hair metal again Date: August 30, 2016 at 8:10
another excellent release by the rock star that GLENN HUGHES is!flawless funky,blusy ,classic hard rock sound with his unique vocals shining all around is offered here with great songs and a sensational vibe all over!Glenn is a star and i feel blessed i ve caught the man twice live in my life

CD: Jackyl - ROWYCO
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 29, 2016 at 19:16
... 'Rock out with your cock out,' for those who hadn't already figured it out. In the end, parts of this album remind me why I like Jackyl, but other parts remind me why I don't like them as much as I used to.

CD: Jackyl - ROWYCO
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 29, 2016 at 19:13
ROWYCO falls somewhere in the middle of the Jackyl catalog. It's not as bad as the last album, Best In Show, for example. But it's not as good as When Moonshine And Dynamite Collide, and it's certainly nowhere near the debut. The good songs are 'Blast Off' (why it's not the first track instead of the last, I don't know), 'Rally' and especially 'All Night Rodeo.' Most other songs are all right, but don't jump out and grab you either, and the chest-thumping and bragging in 'Crazy' and 'Limpdick' seem a little too bellligerent to be fun (a la the general feel on Cut The Crap). The cover of Hot Chocolate's '70's R&B hit 'Everyone's A Star' is surprisingly unfunky as well. And then Jesse revives his warbly Janis Joplin impression for 'Just Because I'm Drunk,' a lamebrained 'country song' as he likes to call them. 'Hammer To The Head' isn't as willfully stupid, but it's another ass-dragging slow number in the style this band just doesn't do well. The title is an acronym for 'rock out with yo

CD: Paris - The World Outside
From: 123charpenay Date: August 23, 2016 at 13:56
in france we are champion for the wine ,the bread and the cheese.not for hard rock n roll.when the very rare bands plays melodic rock it s always the same story.the records are average,the production is rotten and the singer is weak with a terrific french accent.here no problem with the production.the sound is clear and strong.but like a bad habit the songs are average and the singer must singing only under his shower.eh les parigots je ne dirais qu un mot :ALLEZ L OL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
