CD: Manito Park - Manito Park
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 20, 2014 at 14:05
This band strongly reminds me of Styx but in a more AOR way...very nice and melodic vocals courtesy of Mr Dupree supported by great backing vocals as well..."Bridges in Prelude"(nice little starter),"Girl In Green","Surrender","Like Forever","Daydreamer"(nice),"Fool For Yesterday","Ariel"(very good song!),"Send A Miracle" & "Bridges Burning" are my faves...probably the production does not help the quality of the songs but in general lines is still pretty acceptable after all...this act deserved more IMHO...85/100

CD: Overland - Epic
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 20, 2014 at 12:45
First comment???...well,Steve's the type of musician who has always an "ace of spades" under the sleeves...this album might be appealing to fans of his motherly band FM and that's for sure...tracks 1,3,5,6,9(great!),10,11 & 12(great AOR feel!)are in my book ...let's wait for his 4th solo release that will have the "good quality music" label sticker in it .87/100

CD: Bedlam - Into The Coals
From: Dramarama Date: September 20, 2014 at 11:51
Fantastic bluesy hard rock CD. If you like The Black Crowes, The Quireboys or Brother Cane give this one a spin. For me the highlights are Drink It Down, Closing Time and the heart wrenching ballad Lucky.

CD: Rush - Rush
From: Doug Date: September 19, 2014 at 18:01
What a great rock and roll album, with hints of progressiveness that they would soon become.

CD: Bon Jovi - New Jersey
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 19, 2014 at 17:50
Oh hell yes! That live Leppard disc from '83 is better than their "real" live album Mirror Ball, by far. I'lll take a complete, good-sounding, vintage live show as a gonus disc any day. But the New Jersey demos and outtakes are neat to hear.

CD: Bon Jovi - New Jersey
From: 123charpenay Date: September 19, 2014 at 16:43
yes doghouse.generally deluxe edition is a trap for die hard fans like us.for me the better "de luxe edition" is the de luxe edition of "pyromania" def leppard .the second cd is an extraordinary concert (15 tracks) in los angeles.you can buy it closed eyes.

CD: Ted Nugent - Live At Hammersmith '79
From: Doug Date: September 19, 2014 at 11:22
I'm one of those guys that liked Derek St. Holmes and Charlie Huhn. This album is good but not even in the same planet as "Double Live Gonzo." Uncle Ted's caveman screaming and howling is just too much at times.

CD: D Generation - D Generation
From: Dramarama Date: September 19, 2014 at 5:17
Great sleazy album. Reminds of a punkier L.A. Guns. Guitar Mafia and No Way Out are stand outs. Great emotion, hard driving rhythms and excellent guitar solos.

CD: Rhino Bucket - Pain
From: hair metal again Date: September 19, 2014 at 3:15
pretty good release by RHINO BUCKET in the same vein lie their previous ones!i really like the production and the sound,the songs are ok ,the vibe is quite hard rockin ,but i d need some more catchy and hard edged tunes !"bird on a wire","mad maggie" and "blow by blow" the best songs of this ok release!

CD: Bon Jovi - New Jersey
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 18, 2014 at 19:40
Yeah, man, the "Deluxe Edition" that was officially released this past year has a lot of those extra songs on it, but the bootleg has a bunch more than that even. I don't have mine right in front of mee, but when I do, I'll post the track list. A couplle songs from it later wound up on Richie's first solo album.

CD: Bon Jovi - New Jersey
From: 123charpenay Date: September 18, 2014 at 14:06
to doghouse yes it s a "de luxe edition" two cd s.in france we says "quand on aime on compte pas" "when we love we don t count".all the jap reissue of 1998 are at a very expensive price on ebay.logic these records are some rarities.

CD: Bon Jovi - Keep The Faith
From: 123charpenay Date: September 18, 2014 at 14:01
really excellent bon jovi s realise,better than "new jersey".the more mature and smart bon jovi s record even if the fantastic hard f m of the debut is far.even so if we have three fillers :tracks 3.10.11.i love the rest."i believe" looks like to "blood on blood" and have a sprinsteen influence."keep the faith " is a hit."bed of roses " a beautiful ballad.tracks 6.8.9 are three super class hard rock songs.track 12 is super different song and "dry county" a masterpiece of nine minutes.one more time i recommand the jap reissue of 1998.cause we have nine bonus tracks ( 2 cd s).six live,an instrumental,a beautiful version of "bed of roses" and two studio outtake "save a prayer"super song and "starting all over again" excellent song.these two bombs could be easely present on the original record.

CD: Bon Jovi - New Jersey
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 17, 2014 at 20:48
I'd heard this was actually supposed to have been a double album, but the record company didn't think fans would pay the higher price, even as popular as Bon Jovi were at the time. You can still find the original, double-disc version for download out there in the dark corners of the Internet.

CD: Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 17, 2014 at 20:43
"Edge of a Broken Heart" was featured in the movie "Disorderlies" (featuring the Fat Boys), and actually charted back in '87. Somewhere out there is a studio acoustic version of "Wanted Dead Or Alive" that is really fantastic--I'd like to get my hands on that.

CD: Royal Hunt - Clown in the Mirror
From: petermexico13 Date: September 17, 2014 at 17:16
Excellent second album! This one is in the same vein as the first album with Henrik Brockman on vocals. and is the prelude of the breakthrough with DC Cooper on vocals. One of the best danish bands in their early stage. Royal Hunt es una de las mejores bandas suridas en los años 90,los teclados y arreglos de Andre Andersen tan geniales como siempre, una continuación de su sensacional debut aún con Brockman en la voz y el preludio para el grandísimo "Moving Target"ya con DC Cooper. Para los seguidores del Metal simfónico y progresivo vale la pena conocer la discografía de esta banda, en lo personal sólo conozco sus trabajos antes de la llegada de John West, lo que comprende sus primeros 4 trabajos, para mí todos son excelentes.

CD: Bon Jovi - New Jersey
From: 123charpenay Date: September 17, 2014 at 14:03
i can add to my last comment to be very honest that there is four fillers tracks 6.8.11.12.of course this great record is not at the same level than his predecessors.nevertheless all serious fans of melodic hard rock have this cd in their collection.i recommand so,the 1998 japan reissue (2 cd s) with seven bonus tracks (six live and one studio outtake song (excellent) "love is the war"

CD: Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet
From: 123charpenay Date: September 17, 2014 at 13:57
all time classic record.the more popular bon jovi s album.logic ,there is only hits in this jewel.this record have hooked several millions people on this planet,not enough the hard rock fans but all people who love good music.i recommand the 1998 japan rissue with seven bonus tracks (2 cd s).five live and two studio outtake song s.these two songs are two atomic bombs at the same level than the original album.these songs are "borderline and "edge of broken heart".

CD: Bang Tango - Dancin' On Coals
From: Dramarama Date: September 17, 2014 at 12:16
I bought this cassette tape the day it came out. Bang Tango is my absolute favorite hard rock band and this is my favorite album by them. Cactus Juice and Emotions in Gear are the highlights for me, but honestly the entire album is outstanding.

CD: Taz Taylor Band - Welcome to America
From: MetalPete1031 Date: September 17, 2014 at 9:02
This is a real gem. Anyone who has been looking for Bonnet to revisit anything at all resembling his MSG outing, "Assault Attack", should pick this up immediately. It's as close as you are gonna get. Taylor plays with influences that MSG fans will love, and Bonnet singing on top of it is a real treat. Don't hesitate, this one will take you back a bit to that style that took us all by storm with the release of "Assault Attack". This isn't a clone - there is progression here but it is easily enjoyable and a refreshing experience, indeed.

CD: Yngwie Malmsteen - Eclipse
From: hair metal again Date: September 17, 2014 at 8:44
fantastic release by MALMSTEEN once again and now things are just where they should be,commercial ,hard rockin with explosive songs and choruses like "making love","save our love","devil in disguise","judas" and "what do you want"!essential

CD: Gringos Locos - Punch Drunk
From: hair metal again Date: September 17, 2014 at 1:41
pretty good hard rock release by GRINGOS LOCOS with excellent production & sound !the band rocks in a fine way ,but not as consisted and hard edged as it shouldyou can find some good songs like "rain","done doin you right","punch drunk" and the band seems to enjoy it ,but somethin always missing!nice little addition to your collection

CD: Ted Nugent - Live At Hammersmith '79
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 16, 2014 at 18:28
A pretty cool self state of uncle Ted in here!!!...crazy and wild ...about the album this is a raw hard rock one,the best way possible...if you are a fan of the man(like i am)then this vintage live recording will do you good.85/100

CD: Johnny Lima - Shine On
From: Ydol eM Date: September 16, 2014 at 11:47
H'm, this album is a bit controversial to me. It starts with Winger alike guitar riff then Jon Bon Jovi clone takes up so that the song could climax with Def Leppard alike refrain... and this model is kept to mostly through the whole album. So, it's not very original but in spite of that I like it a lot! I believe this arena hard rock is played frankly just from the bottom of Johnny Lima's heart. And IMO this is the point music is about. 85/100.

CD: Mitch Malloy - Shine
From: Ydol eM Date: September 15, 2014 at 8:38
I must admit just from the beginning of my comment that this was a slight disappointment to me. Common pop/classic rock sometimes with fragrance of aor, country or alternative rock. In compare to previous albums, here are weaker production and also song-writing. But IMO if you like Phil Naro, Rick Springfield or Harry Hess you might excuse that (like I did). Nice but nothing special and that's pity because I suppose there was a potentiality that is demonstrated by last two songs which are awesome (paradoxically no ifo about them in the booklet - last moment addition?).75/100.

CD: Skagarack - A Slice Of Heaven
From: hair metal again Date: September 15, 2014 at 4:20
very good release once again by SKAGARACK ,but even though you like it and wait for somethin big ,unfortunately never happens!i d say it s quite safe and doesnt really make you lose control !well performed ,structured and everything but no real spark in it!"anytime,anywhere" and "talk dirty to me" the highlights of this pretty good hard rock release!

CD: Moonland - Moonland
From: 123charpenay Date: September 14, 2014 at 16:04
the three vanilla ninja records (jap import) are in good place in my collection.these records are three irresistibles atomic bombs of female aor.so when i ve seen that frontiers record make a project with one of the vanilla ninja singer ,i was very exicted.i was a little disapointed when i read an interview of the singer.she says that she makes exactly that frontiers record want.she is right this record is a record of allessandro del vieccho with his girl friend who play bass guitar on all frontiers record.this album is great no more.nothing new under the sun.it s a typical frontiers female project ,great but nothing spectacular,nothing extraordinary.i wish long life to frontiers record but with time no surprise ,no excitation,always the same musicians for always the same music.in the same vein issa is better than moonland.no doubt.

CD: Toto - 35th Anniversary Tour: Live In Poland
From: Jez Date: September 14, 2014 at 8:08
Recorded live In Poland last year, this set sees the welcome return of Joseph Williams and Steve Porcaro back into the band, along with mega bassist Nathan East. Williams sounds fantastic and the whole bands sounds fresh and rejuvenated. The setlist is also a nice change with more inclusions from the 'Hydra' album ('White Sister' is especially noteable and one of the best versions I have heard the band do). Don't go around thinking this is just another live album/DVD, as this is a pretty fantastic set to get hold of and the best live release the band has put out so far.

CD: Savatage - Ghost In The Ruins - A Tribute to Criss Oliva
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 13, 2014 at 21:21
Decent live album of a great band!!!...the bonus studio track is a nice acoustic song...85/100

CD: Jon Butcher - Pictures From the Front
From: playhogan Date: September 13, 2014 at 17:44
Melodic metal? I think you got this one wrong. This is pretty much straight ahead rock with some AOR thrown in for good measure. This is a really good release in my opinion.

CD: Rio - Borderland
From: hair metal again Date: September 13, 2014 at 6:30
fantastic debut by the very fine RIO back in mid 80s and surely one of the best UK bands that deliverd that kind of sound at the time!cant really find somethin missin and i think that its quite alive and really does it for the young and not only middleage aorsters!"i dont wanna be the fool","straight to the heart","tommy cant help it" aresensational songs and Borderland is a masterpiece that shouldnt be missing by any collection!

CD: Heartland - Move On
From: 123charpenay Date: September 11, 2014 at 12:35
the more hard,the more dynamic record from heartland.unfortunatelly not their best.two fillers tracks 6 and 10.the rest is good ,not more.they play hard than never ,in their own style.with time the special voice of chris ousey is tiresome.this record have not the charm and the class of their brilliant debut album and III.this record never hooked me really.

CD: Heartland - Heartland
From: 123charpenay Date: September 11, 2014 at 12:27
pure magic a o r.their best record for sure.this record is a masterpiece of a o r.all songs are magic ,are irressistibles.all serious fans of a o r have this jewel in their collection.after this fantastic debut album heartland deliver us a very boring and very repetitive poor a o r (except III a super record).no bonus track for the japan import (very rare always at a crazy high price on ebay).

CD: Neil Norman/Bobby Sexton - Facing Destiny
From: hair metal again Date: September 11, 2014 at 1:05
excellent release by NEIL NORMAN&BOBBY SEXTON with remarkable musicianship ,songs and the mid 80 s aorish vibe all over!surely released some years later than it should ,it contains many hooks and ideas that will satisfy experienced listeners and spin after spin you ll find somethin more!"i know","if he loved you","i ll come back for you" are great songs!pick it up

CD: Kix - Rock Your Face Off
From: Axe Slinger Date: September 10, 2014 at 20:05
I have been a fan of this band since Midnight Dynamite. That, BMF and Hot Wire are really good guitar driven discs. At first glance, I didn't think much of this new music but man was I wrong. This is Kix through and through even without Donnie Purnell, who wrote most of their popular stuff in the 80's. My favorite is "You're Gone" but most every song is a lot of fun and full of the Kix flare. Kix fans are going to love it. 92/100

CD: No Respect - No Respect
From: hair metal again Date: September 9, 2014 at 2:52
cool band and a pretty good debut for hair metallers NO RESPECT!hard rockin &heavy,lots of attitude,exceptional guitar riffs and many good songs by those guys in the same vein like PARIAH,DANGEROUS TOYS ,SKID ROW !the only problem is that they should have released some more commercial songs that would make the whole thing more complete!overall a great indie though

CD: Mama's Boys - Power and Passion
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 8, 2014 at 21:12
I owned this album on vinyl centuries ago!!! ...it came with a 12' color picture disc included as a special limited edition...a lovely band indeed...the best track for me is the opener "Hard & Loud"...some other good ones are tracks 2,3,7 & 8(a cool instrumental one)...an enjoyable melodic hard rock stuff in here guys and gals...86/100

CD: Scorpions - Sting In The Tail
From: 123charpenay Date: September 8, 2014 at 14:04
the special edition with bonus tracks is highly recommanded.pleasure guaranted.

CD: The Outfield - Diamond Days
From: chupeaux Date: September 8, 2014 at 13:14
Love this album. Tony's way of singing, band's arrangements, production remind me of great Art/AOR gangs, such as Livgren's AD, Lodgic, World Trade...later, Circa as well as Payne's era with Asia. As Juan Carlos wrote..ATMOSPHERIC AOR....even Yes with Rabin was some kind of atmospheric AOR..for example:"Love Will Find a Way"

CD: Brother Firetribe - Diamond In The Firepit
From: Sly009 Date: September 7, 2014 at 15:27
BF is one of those band with high quality music. Not the kind of band having one album every year with 3 or 4 fillers. Well worth the wait and this album is not as good then the last one when first listening to it BUT grows on you quick and can't stop listenning to it. 1 of the best album so far this year.

CD: Noize Toys - Fallin' In Lust...Again
From: hair metal again Date: September 7, 2014 at 14:56
excellent hair metal release by NOIZE TOYS back in the day and this captures what happened in the LA scene!a nice mixture of early MOTLEY CRUE,POISON &KISS under the hair metal movement and this one is raw,anthemic ,hard rockin and will satisfy every hard rocker around!i d surely like to listen a 2nd release by these guyz!

CD: Ozzy Osbourne - The Ultimate Sin
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 7, 2014 at 13:16
Ozzy played the "mainstream man" on this record for sure ...in fact,the song "Shot In The Dark" which happens to be the highlight of the album and my personal fave,is a big SHOT of Melodic Rock/Hard AOR one in here...another fine tunes are tracks 1,2(catchy),5 & 8...this is quite an enjoyable record but do not expect a Heavy Metal one...86/100

CD: Surrender - Surrender
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 6, 2014 at 12:24
Listening to this quite decent indie release...yeah the songs offer some kind of attractiveness but far away to be considered "milestones ones" IMHO..."Song Child","Leave Her To Heaven"(nice,beautiful lyrics),"One Chance" & "See To Believe" are the songs i liked from this record...75/100

CD: No Exqze - Too Hard To Handle
From: hair metal again Date: September 5, 2014 at 11:55
ok release by NO EXQZE through Mercury records!Despite the big company and the well known producer(Tony Platt) the band doesnt deliver in general and i believe that the problem is the strange singer and lack of big songs!on the other hand the musicianship is excellent and their approach pretty good and i can find one beautiful song "home again(lovers on the telephone line)"!nothin special here ,just ok

CD: Jimi Jamison - Crossroads Moment
From: Doug Date: September 4, 2014 at 16:28
RIP Jimi, man you were one helluva singer.

CD: Johnny Lima - My Revolution
From: aorluver Date: September 4, 2014 at 11:46
Naturally Beautiful sounds like Boston in their prime .

CD: Lebocat - Flo's Barbershop
From: Japangea Date: September 4, 2014 at 3:00
Very gutsy Hard Rock like Night Ranger - Winger vein.Nice stuff.

CD: Ziad - Do You Believe...
From: JONBONPIGO Date: September 3, 2014 at 18:30
"It Could Be You" is a very good track...quite heavy and Would've been right in place on Skid Row's "Slave to the Grind" album... "Red On White" is the other track to listen to..to get a good read on the slower/ballad side of the band.. If you like those then give the rest of the album a listen..

CD: Fozzy - Do You Wanna Start a War
From: aorluver Date: September 3, 2014 at 17:45
These dudes are too good musicians to be true. This cd is just great heavy like molten steel and melodic like you'd never have guessed after their prevoius records The best album from those great dudes by farrrrrrr

CD: King's X - Out of the Silent Planet
From: hair metal again Date: September 3, 2014 at 12:17
excellent debut by KING S X and from the start it was obvious that they are kinda pioneers in the hard rock scene with that dark,mellow but also melodic and hard rockin approach they gave to their sound!brilliant combo by those 3 great musos and a band that still delivers ,faithful to us and their music!essential

CD: U.F.O. - Misdemeanor
From: spankee Date: September 3, 2014 at 2:58
Remastered Edition Bonus Tracks: 11. The Chase (B-side of This Time 45) 12. Night Run (US Remix) 13. This Time (US Remix) 14. Heavens Gate (US Remix) 15. Name Of Love (US Remix) 16. One Heart (US Remix) 17. Blue (US Remix)

CD: Burning Rain - Pleasure to Burn
From: hair metal again Date: September 3, 2014 at 1:26
fantastic release by BURNING RAIN and i totally agree with Blue Charvel on this one:it is difficult to get it out of my cd player!the band delivers classic commercial hard rock ,totally based in the 80 s metal but with a more rockin flavour!Doug & Keith shine in this one and easily it could compete releases of the golden era of the genre!all the songs are excellent and they grow every spin you take!essential and one of the best of this millenium

CD: Dalton - Injection
From: L.A. Sunset Date: September 2, 2014 at 20:17
Absolute class act like Treat, Alien, Roulette. Plenty of keys and standouts "Love Injection", "Lonely", "Comin' on Strong" deserve to be up there with the best of Swedish AOR. Received "The Best of Dalton - 25th Anniversary 1987 - 2012" the other day with 3 unreleased tracks which could easily fit on this album - another must have.

CD: Rush - The Spirit of Radio
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 2, 2014 at 20:11
I only own the audio disc of this compilation...some of the band's goodies are registered here but IMHO this should have been a longer release...95/100

CD: Red Dawn - Never Say Surrender
From: 123charpenay Date: September 2, 2014 at 13:38
unfortunatelly no bonus track on the very rare japan edition.

CD: Shooting Star - It's Not Over
From: 123charpenay Date: September 2, 2014 at 13:34
i confirm my first comment."it s not over" is their best record without any doubt.before they played a dull a o r with a bad production and a poor sound.

CD: Fortune - Fortune
From: 123charpenay Date: September 2, 2014 at 13:31
impossible to guess that this band is american.they deliver an incredible a o r.a real classic,a masterpiece of a o r.yes the production could be better,not always clear when the sound is high pitched.but it s not a problem cause this record is magic.this album is a collection of immortal hits.all are top class a o r but my fav is "98°in the shade."an extraordinary song.the reissue is essential cause we have three bonus tracks.a new song in studio (excellent) and two new songs live (perfect sound and fabulous songs!!!!).all serious a o r fans have this jewel in their collection.

CD: Styx - Cyclorama
From: underworld king Date: September 2, 2014 at 9:12
Especially "These Are The Times".

CD: Styx - Cyclorama
From: underworld king Date: September 2, 2014 at 9:10
This cd isn't that bad. Some great tracks here if you give it a proper listen. This cd will always be special for me as the songs resonate strongly with me based on where I was and what I was doing back in 03.

CD: Styx - Edge of the Century
From: underworld king Date: September 2, 2014 at 9:06
The first time I saw Styx live was on this tour in San Diego in July of 1991. It was a good show and Glenn Burtnik did a very good job filling in for Tommy Shaw. As for this album, I think it was ok but not near as impressive as their mid to late 70's music.

CD: Styx - Caught in the Act Live
From: underworld king Date: September 2, 2014 at 9:00
The first Styx live lp and a favorite of mine. The band was playing extremely well during this tour. Unfortunately we don't have all of the songs performed at the time but it's still a good album. The studio track "Music Time" is for die hard fans only though. It has too much of a "Foot Loose" vibe going on.

CD: Styx - Paradise Theater
From: underworld king Date: September 2, 2014 at 8:53
Another great Styx album for the time. Even though they had changed from their earlier stuff this is still a great album. Every track has something to offer however, Snowblind is my favorite.

CD: Monro - Monro
From: hair metal again Date: September 2, 2014 at 8:26
excellent debut by MONRO and one more well hidden gem from the UK !it seems that at the time there were many bands there that prefered a more keyboard driven sound but with hard edged guitar solos !this one has it all and i cant really find anything missing,as the songs are catchy,commercial and hard rockin!"here comes the night",it s you","open up your heart " are the best songs here and overall a worth having release!i personally own the Retrospect reissue which is pretty cool

CD: TNT - All The Way To The Sun
From: hair metal again Date: September 2, 2014 at 2:13
wow!didnt expect that one to be so good!updated,classy with excellent musicianship and many great songs TNT prove to be a major band !the sound is commercial and that s a good thing and i d say that this is similar to a more guitar driven but equally in a approach with the Transistor release!"driving ","sometimes " and "save your love " are the highlights of this highly recommended release!

CD: Sonic Station - Next Stop
From: lost-soul Date: September 1, 2014 at 16:47
Very good effort once again from Sonic Station. Agreeing with Jez, that the mixture of male and female vocals is a great addition to the band - both of them have tremendous vocal abilities - and the songwriting is of very high quality. It's obvious that mr. Kronbrink isn't afraid to experiment a little bit with the sound of the band and I feel that the end result is one very classy AOR album. Only downside for me is that the choruses at most songs don't sound that powerful or memorable as they could be, in order to make this album a gem. But the overall feel of the album is great and I especially enjoy the songs in which ms. Willstedt is singing.

CD: McQueen Street - McQueen Street
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 31, 2014 at 15:51
I probably would've loved this if I'd owned it back in '91. I was a kid who had never bothered to wonder if there was anything besides hair-metal. Two decades on, it's easy to see McQueen Street for what they were--a talented but utterly derivative band playing the flavor of the day--and understand why they never made it out of Headbanger's Ball's third hour, or the lower rungs of the Z-Rock 50.

CD: McQueen Street - McQueen Street
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 31, 2014 at 15:44
Huge, big-budget production (Tom Werman in charge, Steve Stevens and Jeff Scott Soto stopping by), shrieky vocals with a "Wow!" or "Oh yeah!" about every ten seconds, big simple gang choruses and tons of sleazy attitude. Yep, by the summer of 1991, hair metal had reached such a saturation point where four guys from Montgomery, Alabama, had all the textbook moves down so tight, there was no way to tel by listening that they weren't straight from the gutters of L.A. This band reminds me of Wildside, in that they did everything right, but by the time their album was released, it offered absolutely nothing new, and failed to make much of an impact. THe two singles "money" and especially "My Religion" are pretty good, and other highlights are "Stick It," "Going Back To Mexico" and "Two Worlds." The number of ballads is surprisingly high (three in ten songs), especially given the extra-rowdy quality of the other songs, and none of the three are anything special.

Listening to "B.V.S." again. Okay, five over-the-top porno songs.

CD: Steel Panther - All You Can Eat
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 30, 2014 at 22:09
I actually kinda dig this disc. I've warmed to these guys, after initially being turned off by the jokey novelty aspect. But the band write tunes as catchy as any upper-midlevel '80's band, and their lyrics often have a tongue-in-cheek, self-deprecating aspect beneath the filth. The guy in "B.V.S.," complaining about the old "hot dog down a hallway" feeling, doesn't seem to know that it's HIS problem for being underendowed. Stallion, I'm kinda surprised. In my book, there are really only four songs that are over-the-top pornographic (tracks 3, 4, 5 and 12). My favorites are "Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World," "Ten Strikes You're Out," "Fuckin' My Heart In The Ass" and "If I Was The King." To me, a band like Dirty Penny are more offensive, because their lyrics are totally without irony or humor, and insult the intelligence of the listener rather than his sexual hang-ups. I'd much rather hear music that makes me squirm than music that makes me feel stupid.

CD: Steel Panther - All You Can Eat
From: MetalllianStallion Date: August 30, 2014 at 17:35
There's a reason there's only one review for this STALE Panther release as their steel-shtick (porn patrol lyrics) are officially played-out by this 3rd album. Let's start with the artwork which to anyone who is a Christian (like myself) should find blasphemous (deeply offensive), with a mockery pose of Christ's last supper with the disciples. In their past releases there was maybe one song I could get into with catchy riffs/clever (porn-lite) lyrics like "Just like Tiger Woods" but this album is a Sodom & "glory hole" Gomorrah feast which I find severely lacking in the song writing department. Lyrics: "There's a hole in the wall where you put your cock & balls But you never really know who's sucking on the other side Is it a boy or a girl or a lady-man hermaphrodite". From the content of this song and other group sex (steel-sausage) love songs, my prediction for their 4th album is that the band will officially "COME OUT" with a Steel Sword Fight: Rob Halford "Corn Hole Nights".

CD: Shakra - Shakra
From: Ydol eM Date: August 30, 2014 at 9:08
In 1998 Shakra was only apprentices that learnt from such masters as AC/DC and Whitesnake. At that time being in their own country there were already several journeymen like Krokus and Gotthard who were doing their job very well. All in all Shakra's work was good straight-ahead hard rock. IMO the top of this album is the singer and the bottom is the front and back of the cover that looks like a demo version of a local party band. But as for music - nice to listen. 80/100.

From: 123charpenay Date: August 29, 2014 at 16:39
i ve this cd in my collection since 2001.my first comment was right but very short.so i will complete it a little.arabia play a pure hard u s hard rock with irresistibles choruses.track 4 is a guenine baton rouge song writen by jack ponti.the rest, except track 10 (the singer rise his voice too much),is excellent and is top class american hard rock with choruses made in america for stadium.for make short a very solid and very great hard u s record.

it s impossible to guess that this band come from germany.in fact, they plays a very very great american melodic hard rock.good sound ,great production,great singer and musicians.this record is varied track 11 is a party rock song,track 3 is a pure southern rock song in the vein of doc holliday or lynyrd skynyrd.tracks 1.5.6.7.10. are influenced by tangier,track 8 is a beautiful ballad.only good songs on this record,no fillers.i recommand this excellent album.unfortunatelly ,no bonus tracks on the japan import.

CD: David A Saylor - Kiss Of Judas
From: MetalllianStallion Date: August 28, 2014 at 23:58
David Saylor looks like a McDonald's manager but he has a voice like an Angel. Saylor pursued a solo career in the 90’s pop market in the Spanish speaking countries achieving a decent level of success. He has evaded any real mainstream success in the States/Europe but he is a talent as the acoustic songs he sings on this one are superior to the PUSH UK versions as they just melt in your ears. This is also the heaviest(I use that word lightly) of his 3 solo releases. I like a few songs on the other 2 albums but overall they are a little to light weight for my taste. Well written catchy,edgey AOR tracks on this one. This release only had a pressing of 1,000 cd's for this EP http://depositfiles.com/files/5y16o2phi PASSWORD : music (sample track) http://www.mp3oob.com/mp3-downloads-david-a-saylor-strange-world-acoustic-171699.html

$$ixx - are you the bastard love child on a budget of Gene $immons and Nikki Sixx? "I don't agree with wise ass Metallian stallion at all" Your review of this album totally agrees with my assessment? (Wise with a great Ass by the way). Go to Over 60 minutes Best of album and half of those songs are "average" filler.Example: Animal House,Everybody Pays the Price,Dirty Dog, White Lace and Black Leather (need I go on?)

CD: Jake Thomas - Rebel With A Cause
From: Marcel Torres Date: August 28, 2014 at 22:58
Perhaps most of the CD is of fillers, but a few good moments. Gimme One More Chance (cool introduction, nice keyboards and backing vocals, and melodic chorus) caught my attention. No doubt a song featured here. All I Want (Is to Dance With You) is a decent and elegant ballad with a good mood to listen to his beloved. And, maybe my favorite, because it was the song that made me want to know this album, Let's Make Love with his completely nightly 'n' intimate atmosphere! For sure a gem for fans of Westcoast! Not my highest recommendation, but by the sounds quoted above and eventually some other one, worth having in collection.

CD: Kingdom Come - Hands of Time
From: Metal T Date: August 28, 2014 at 22:11
This record was co-written with a chick/musician named Carol Tatum and probably the reason that its so lightweight sounding.Don't get me wrong the songs are good,but the music is anemic in the HARD department and lacks balls.Too much going on with alot of the different instruments.Still like it but listen to some of these songs live' and the redone versions Lenny did and you can hear what i mean.

CD: Kingdom Come - Live And Unplugged
From: Metal T Date: August 28, 2014 at 21:56
Excellent live discs but WAY to short for a double...vox and band sound really good on there though...the 'Hands Of Time' stuff sounds ALOT better live' and on the later 'Rendered Waters'.

CD: Kingdom Come - Twilight Cruiser
From: Metal T Date: August 28, 2014 at 21:43
I picked this one up a few years ago after hearing for years how "bad" it was supposed to be...wrong answer! This is a good,solid record and this is the one that should of followed Hands Of Time' and maybe even 'In Your Face'.For starters Twilight Cruiser' has the great songwriting that alot of the KC records that followed the first 3 albums did NOT have.Really catchy stuff,an almost hard rock/slight alternative style but enjoyable...1-7 and 9 & 10 being proof.Great vox.

From: MetalPete1031 Date: August 27, 2014 at 12:37
There's a couple steps in the right direction, but for the most part, AGAIN, we fans of the first few KC albums are bound to be disappointed. Still, this one DOES manage to beat 'Perpetual' and 'Independent', which are horrible releases overall. Come on Lenny, give us one that only has ONE ballad, willya?

CD: Kingdom Come - Independent
From: MetalPete1031 Date: August 27, 2014 at 11:21
Well I thought 'Perpetual' sucked. This one tops it, with only "America" and "Easy Talking Hardline" being listenable tracks. Lenny, stop indulging yourself. Call up Satriani or Neal Schon and get some crunch back in your step. Your broken heart whining has gotten quite stale. If you must do so, at least do it uptempo!! Argghh.

CD: Kingdom Come - Bad Image
From: MetalPete1031 Date: August 27, 2014 at 11:06
wow. Ok, I will have to be devil's advocate here. I don't like this album, except for maybe 5 songs. Gone are the bonecrunching guitars, instead replaced with keyboards and slow-tempo rockers about Lenny's wretched love life. Half of this album is somewhat enjoyable, but it's clear to early fans that things were not going to get any heavier in the albums that followed, and unfortunately for us that is true. Find myself falling off of the KC fan club wagon pretty hard with this one...

CD: Baton Rouge - Shake Your Soul
From: Ydol eM Date: August 27, 2014 at 9:59
Yeah, hair metal again is right - the whole sound could have been more sharp-edged because the rhythm guitar (mainly) really takes a back seat (IMO uselessly). In spite of that we get catchy arena hard rock full of testosterone and energy. If you are addicted to bands like early Winger, Babylon A.D. or Alice Cooper (at that time being) you surely have this cd at home. 85/100.

This is where KC turned into more midtempo and slow rock. It is still very good music, but if you are turned off by the lack of aggression on this, it's a good place to stop. Twilight Cruiser is very similar. This is one of their last good, consistent albums. Once they hit the new millenium, well...you don't really wanna know.

CD: Kingdom Come - Twilight Cruiser
From: MetalPete1031 Date: August 27, 2014 at 9:15
The last good one for quite some time from Kingdom Come. Although more experimental, the songs here are still tight and well crafted. the guitar has not been abandoned, either, and so this one is enjoyable. Later, he got far too self-indulgent. Nothing after this was anywhere near as consistent.

CD: Kingdom Come - Ain't Crying for the Moon
From: MetalPete1031 Date: August 27, 2014 at 8:33
Don't let the cover fool you - this is not a bold, brash and heavy record with sleaze. However, it is pretty good for Kingdom Come during that timeframe and certainly better than the ones that followed. Half of the record is good, sort of like 'Master 7'. Not sure why then, the rating for this one is lower than stinkers like 'Perpetual' and "Magnified'...some sort of error by listeners, methinks! If you like Master 7 you should get this one too.

CD: Kingdom Come - Magnified
From: MetalPete1031 Date: August 27, 2014 at 8:10
Only three songs worth listening to on here. Way too boring for most fans of the first two records.

CD: Kingdom Come - Master Seven
From: MetalPete1031 Date: August 27, 2014 at 8:09
Half of the album is enjoyable. Far better than both 'Magnified' and the absolutely terrible 'Perpetual'. So this one is a good one to try and get back into KC with...

CD: Kingdom Come - Perpetual
From: MetalPete1031 Date: August 27, 2014 at 8:04
This is easily the worst album ever released by 'Kingdom Come'. Horrible. Dull, plodding, as non-metal as he has ever been. Do not buy this record.

CD: Buckcherry - Fuck
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 26, 2014 at 6:38
Buckcherry has always been known for over-the-top profanity, with the glaring, and intentional exception of the All Night Long album. For the most part, it hasn't hurt 'em, as songs like "Crazy Bitch," "Too Drunk" and even "Porno Star" in its time, enjoyed heavy radio play in edited form. But the Fuck EP is a bit of a risk, especially for a band who's damn lucky to have gotten a second chance after Time Bomb flopped, and have been embraced all over again by radio. So here are six songs that could be edited and played, but never ANNOUNCED on the air. But then, Elton John had a top-five hit with "The Bitch Is Back," a song that many stations wouldn't say the title of, so who knows? As for the music, the EP format is perfect for Buckcherry, six songs being about the maximum they've ever been able to pull off before filling the rest of their albums with, well, filler. As a result, Fuck is a pretty strong release.

CD: Ace Frehley - Space Invader
From: Reverend Mayhem Date: August 25, 2014 at 22:14
Paul Stanley has complained that Ace's playing never blossomed beyond his early skills, and listening to this album I have to say he's right -- you hear an awful lot of familiar old Frehley licks that stretch all the way back to '75. That doesn't mean the Spaceman hasn't delivered some killer playing in his career (the "Rock and Roll Over" album being the apex for me), just that well into the New Millennium you might expect some development. But then, why mess with a signature style, right? That includes the boozy riffs and Ace's languid vocals, plus a sort of Hanoi Rocks beach-punk fun that infects the up-tempo rockers ("Gimme A Feelin'," "I Wanna Hold You.") Of course, there's also the expected instrumental song (the worthless "Starship") and plenty of obligatory outer space references. Other than the thunderous modern production, it all sounds like it could have been done over 40 years ago. Enjoyable (and probably his best output in a while), just kinda tired in 2014. 70/100

If you, like me, never get tired of the old 80's AOR Rock formula, with all relevant keyboards and guitars, even this being 1991', maybe you like it. And if you also enjoy mix between male and female vocals, It's another positive point. Not the best of the best of the best... ... but for sure a good option for collectors. Highlights, IMO, King of the Air, nice ballad and beautifull interpretation; Stronger, that reminds Lita Ford, and the pleasant Forever. Good one!

CD: Accept - Blind Rage
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 23, 2014 at 20:12
Talk about an unlikely comeback. I think we'd all given up on Accept and weren't expecting anything at all four years ago. Three albums later, and Accept are proving it wasn't just a one-off fluke, still making music in the same style and sound and with the same vitality as their mid-'80's peak. Third outstanding album in a row. Udo who? A name-change ain't gonna happen, as each generation of bands (and fans) learns that changing the name to preserve some imagined integrity is just leaving money on the table.

CD: Accept - Blind Rage
From: $$ixx Date: August 23, 2014 at 15:04
Only two original members left, not really Accept to me, still a very nice album with solid songs. Tornillo is singing in the same metal style as Udo, which was probably a smart move. But similar to Helloween, they could change the band name imo. Cheers to ya.

CD: Helix - Bastard of the Blues
From: $$ixx Date: August 23, 2014 at 14:56
I don't agree with wise ass Metallian stallion at all. There were much more popular/better selling bands in the 80s, that had just as many if not more, fillers on their albums (e.g. Van Halen or Kiss). In fact, Helix's imo best albums, No rest for the wicked, Walkin' the razor's edge, Vagabond bones and this new killer album Bastard of the blues, are just full of stellar songs (very few fillers!). Amazing kick ass rock 'n' roll, tongue-in-cheek lyrics and fantastic live band too. Cool to see that Greg & Daryl are still rockin' out with Mr. Vollmer! This album, just like the last one, has very nice production as well. To me, almost perfect album, congratulations Helix

I already commentted this one a long time ago, what's up? well, This album is just good to me,yeah Clean Production, Keyboards everywhere, big choruses, good songs but not the great thing in my book, maybe because i'm not into Pomp AOR too much and there are many uptempo songs. If you love stuff like Styx mixed with Honeymoon Suite this is for you. My favorite tracks are "Always Be There" "Running Back" & the ballad "Turning The Knife". 85/100

From: Ydol eM Date: August 19, 2014 at 9:47
Definitely not bad album but whenever the best song (IMO) of an album is a cover (#6) I feel the band haven't utilize all their potentiality. I would set this album somewhere between Rolling Stones and Aerosmith. Paradoxically, their old-fashioned (70s)/retro hard rock "sprinkled" with blues, southern rock and boogie was at that time being a new attempt (as CC has already written here) trying to attract the then or new rock community... but I nearly passed it by somehow. 75/100.

CD: Dirty Penny - Take It Sleezy
From: MetalllianStallion Date: August 13, 2014 at 22:59
I didn't notice 4 years ago but there is a permanent hole (void) in the rock universe according to wikipedia. On October 25, 2010 Dirty Penny's social sites posted that lead singer Binge Daniels has left the band. It is unclear if they are looking for a new singer or where they will go from here(check the dumpster). Tyno Vincent joined American Idol Finalist James Durbin's solo band for his upcoming tour in 2011/12. What about "Spanky Savage", did he keep his name for a gay porn career or is he a roadie on the James Durbin tour (either way it's gay porn). By the reviews for these clowns I'm suprised there hasn't been any half mask flag comments of their fallen hard rock heroes. Anyone?

CD: Faith Circus - Turn Up The Band
From: MetalllianStallion Date: August 13, 2014 at 22:02
Faith Circus describe their sound as a hybrid of KISS, Van Halen, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, and Journey. That's a bit of a stretch IMO but it's pretty decent stuff. Gone is the AOR sheen on the debut, replaced by a MHR groove and Mark Farrano's well rounded vocals (no norwegian accent). The band stresses melodies/harmonies and now falls into the category of hook driven MHR with the rebooted sound. "Turn Up The Band" 2 cd set contains the band's (2008)debut remix/remaster as well as some bonus material. There is a cover of the Eric "The Fox" Carr/Bruce Kulick/Adam Mitchell composition "Can you feel it" previously only released in demo form on the former Kiss drummers,"Rockology" album. The songs are "Heroes" and a version of 007 soundtrack from the movie "For Your Eyes Only (1981)" with a vocal duet with Robin Beck. Tony Harnell and James Christian also throw in some backing vocal talent. Nothing earth shattering but this is a pleasant listen and worth a spin.

CD: Tattoo Rodeo - Rode Hard and Put Away Wet
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 13, 2014 at 10:06
Oh yeah, this was definitely aimed at the hair-metal crowd. But you can't ignore that it's hair-metal dressed up as southern-rock. There's piano, organ, slide guitar, and Dennis Churchill Dries singing from an affected southern persona, making it immediately different from the straight-up lipstick-and-spandex metal of 1991. You would never mistake this for Pretty Boy Floyd or BulletBoys. Compared with other hair-metal bands of the day, there's a smoothness and laid-back feel about Tattoo Rodeo, that makes people think more of southern rock.

CD: Tattoo Rodeo - Rode Hard and Put Away Wet
From: hair metal again Date: August 13, 2014 at 8:49
excellent hair metal release by TATTOO RODEO ,not so much blues or southern as stated above!this band was set to get heard and appreciated by those fans and not those who listen to blues or southern!ex WHITE SISTER members of course means that the quality of music is very high and the songs sound hard rockin and edgy!"tell me why","been your fool","one way love " are great songs inded!essential like every release of that movement back in the day

CD: Kix - Rock Your Face Off
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 12, 2014 at 20:20
Kix succeed where Tesla flopped earlier this year: they made an album that's true to themselves, but has the energy and sass that fans still want to hear. Rock Your Face Off isn't the band's best work, as topping the trio of Midnite Dynamite/Blow My Fuse/Hot Wire would be damn near impossible. But songs like "Wheels In Motion," "Rollin' In Honey," "All The Right Things," "Mean Miss Adventure" and "Love Me With Your Top Down" are all prime Kix. Steve Whiteman still sounds clear and strong, and while the lyrics about rock '' roll outlaws chasing pussy might seem silly, at least the band don't sound like a bunch of tired old men. "Inside Outside Inn" is a sappy, middle-aged-guy ballad for the wife, and, not coincidentally, sucks, and a couple other songs are below aveerage, but for the most part, this is a good album that should make any Kix fan happy.

CD: Manic Eden - Manic Eden
From: Rob Rocker Date: August 12, 2014 at 16:32
I usually like heavy blues based rock, and this is a "super group" of players, but the problem with Manic Eden is that there is not a "hook" to be found on the entire CD. I break it out every now and then, hoping that maybe I missed something, or maybe it's one of those albums that grows on you, but sadly there is nothing there.

CD: Gary Moore - We Want Moore!
From: hair metal again Date: August 11, 2014 at 9:26
pretty good live release by an artist that must been great on stage!unfortunately didnt ever catch him live ,but his vibe and his quality in performing is obvious!some great moments here like "empty rooms" and "don take me for a loser"!if you like live releases you ll enjoy that one

CD: Love Child - Love Child
From: andi Date: August 11, 2014 at 9:21
unless the vote is not comparable with Seven Wishes!!Great guitars.....bad drums....like made in aauto garage....bad produced....Better take the original SEVEN WISHES!!!!

CD: Monkeyhead - Monkeyhead
From: andi Date: August 11, 2014 at 9:15
B-Version from Slaughter.....boring melodic HR without power

CD: Manic Eden - Manic Eden
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 11, 2014 at 0:02
The AOR nuts hate it for its bluesiness, the party-rockers hate it for its relative mellowness. In the '70's-obsessed retro-fad of 1994, this should have doee better. The first comparison that comes to mind is Cry Of Love, but heavier in places, yet at the same time, the soft songs are softer, and overall, less of a Bad Company clone kind of vibe. Manic Eden is its own thing, owed in part to the inimitable Ron Young on vocals. Very soulful music, with excellent playing all around. "Do Angels Die" is a fantastic, melancholy ballad.

CD: Ozzy Osbourne - Down to Earth
From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 10, 2014 at 20:34
A commercial Ozzy in here,well he's been like that for years now...this release is quite enjoyable and more with that spark of Black Label Society feel included ..."That I Never Had" is my fave...tracks 1,2,3(nice),4 & 8 are also in my "reality show" sorry,in my book of likable ones...88/100

CD: Steve Perry - Street Talk
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 9, 2014 at 11:27
One of the early comments says this is "music to get hyped up for a Tupperweare party." The Steve Perry fanboys and AOR wimps lost their mud, but it's pretty much true. This is music you hear at the dentist office or waiting on hold with the bank. Sure, Perry's voice is iconic, but on "She's Mine" he sounds AWFUL! Gasping, shrill, souding like an old woman. Plus, the song itself wouldn't put a drop of fear in the heart of anybody trying to steal his girl, as it's intended. What did Steve Perry say to Michael Bolton when they got off the eleevator? "Man, that place rocked!" And Bolton said, "Zip your pants, Steve."

CD: The McAuley Schenker Group - MSG
From: blackkblade5 Date: August 9, 2014 at 11:02
first THIS IS NOT AOR...BRIAN SPENCE,STAN BUSH,SURVIVOR IS AOR.. this is hard/heavy music.And this mcauley/schenker act is way better than the Graham Bonnet screaming nightmare and the gary barden weak sound albums,this is like gift from the gods,just love all their stuff,great melodic songs,heavy and fast,good ballads,fantastic solos...well folks you can't go wrong with this cd

CD: FM - Dead Man's Shoes
From: blackkblade5 Date: August 9, 2014 at 10:47
well...lot bad comments about this album,why????back in 1995 all hard/heavy were deleted out of the face of the earth by a nuclear bomb called grunge...ok this is not the usual FM sound,more of bluesy free/bad company affair but is a fine piece of rock with top-production...so my advice to the ones that dont like this album is go and buy some nirvana cd or a nu-metal"not nu anymore"crap and let good music roll....salute

CD: Steel Dawn - Mirror Images
From: andi Date: August 9, 2014 at 10:35

CD: Atlas - Contra Viento y Marea
From: juan carlos Date: August 8, 2014 at 23:45
Good and predictable HardRock. "De una vez por todas" "Vivire" "Abriendo los ojos" with a riff àla AC/DC "En el nombre de Dios" & "Odisea" are my favorite tracks. If you want to have fun with some cool riffs well you will! 80/100

CD: Audiovision - Focus
From: juan carlos Date: August 8, 2014 at 21:23
Good Melodic HardRock/Metal. Mmmm it's more of the same in my opinion, nothing new to offer in my book. Cool heavy riffs àla DIO in "We Will Go" etc.. but the Stryper cover "The Way" is my favorite track. 80/100

CD: Alan Gorrie - Sleepless Nights
From: juan carlos Date: August 8, 2014 at 19:41
Okay, too many Uptempo songs to my ears, just 9 tracks & 1 remix but overall it's a good WestcoastAOR album with Hi-tech elements àla Tim Feehan. My favorite songs are "Sleepless Nights" "That Kinda Girl" and the very special ballad "Diary of a Fool". 80/100

CD: 44 Caliber - Can You Handle...
From: juan carlos Date: August 8, 2014 at 11:58
Hey brothers! what's up with this one? This is a Masterpiece!!! Come on! Comment this one. Ten f*cking great tracks! You can't miss it. 90/100

CD: Ozzy Osbourne - Diary of a Madman
From: hair metal again Date: August 8, 2014 at 4:18
fantastic release by the mighty OZZY OSBOURNE in the early 80 s and surely a classic of the heavy rock scene!Randy shines here and this is maybe his best work!the songwriting is of the highest level and the production by Max Norman as "live" as it can gets!"over the mountain","diary of a madman","flying high again" and "tonight" are amazing songs indeed!essential

CD: FM - Indiscreet
From: andi Date: August 7, 2014 at 12:22
