CD: Enuff Z'Nuff - Clowns Lounge
From: Doug Date: December 5, 2016 at 12:11
Really? Okay, I will check it out.

CD: The Outfield - Bangin
From: hair metal again Date: December 5, 2016 at 3:05
very good release this one ,with OUTFIELD offering great harmonies with a stellar production!the musicianship is top notch and after a few spins you ll be hooked with their quality !"somewhere in America",'bangin on my heart"& "better than nothing" are the highlights of this recommended hard rock release

CD: Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard of Ozz
From: dany69 Date: December 4, 2016 at 21:58

CD: What If - What If
From: Locoaor Date: December 4, 2016 at 13:30
Awesome AOR album, "If this is love" and "Perfect World" my favorite tracks, greetings from Peru

CD: Fahrenheit - Talking 'Bout Love
From: edwithmj Date: December 4, 2016 at 6:28
I completely agree with the comparisons to Boulevard. The singer sounds a lot like tht bands vocalist. The songs here are very melodic and all have their own merit but my favourites are Talking 'Bout Love, Touch of Heaven, Should Have Known Better and Dreamin'. The only bad song on the album is the cover of Loverboy's Turn Me Loose. This song was actually what tempted me to get this album as I was curious if the original could be topped. I was left disappointed as the version sounds sort of like a disco version and it also has no solo. Apart from that one song, this is very decent AOR.

CD: Roxy Blue - Want Some
From: Palash Date: December 3, 2016 at 23:45
Good album. I didn't know about Roxy Blue. When I heard their first song 'times are changing' which was in a rock ballad collections CD, I thought Jon Bon Jovi was the main singer of this band. Maximum similarity have between Roxy Blue and Bon Jovi.

CD: Tygers Of Pan Tang - First Kill
From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 3, 2016 at 11:21
I own this on vinyl since it came out ...raw versions of some of the band's top songs of their early stage...# 1,4,5,6 & 10 are my faves.85/100

CD: Lita Ford - Wicked Wonderland
From: Palash Date: December 3, 2016 at 2:23
If you want worst album, then buy it.

CD: Enuff Z'Nuff - Clowns Lounge
From: Axe Slinger Date: December 2, 2016 at 22:21
Actually, Donnie Vie sings on a fair number of the tracks. Derek Frigo is on a few as well. I've heard about 5 songs and all are pretty darn good for demos / b sides / new material. Really nice surprise if you're a fan of the band.

CD: Tim Feehan - Full Contact
From: Locoaor Date: December 2, 2016 at 19:26
Una GEMA absoluta de AOR, tremenda calidad de musicos que colaboran en este album, la voz de Feehan suena en su mejor momento, imprencindible!!!

CD: Enuff Z'Nuff - Clowns Lounge
From: Doug Date: December 2, 2016 at 12:02
Without Donnie Vie, not all that interested...

CD: Virginia Wolf - Push
From: hair metal again Date: December 1, 2016 at 2:16
fantastic hard rock release for VIRGINIA WOLF ,a great band from the UK!it seems that there were many fine bands at the time there that delivered that lighter sound with the mid 80 s vibe !well Chris s vocs are outstanding ,the songwriting is excellent and the production smooth and polished!"don t break away","standing on the edge of time","man in the moon' and "tables have turned' are the highlights and overall i d say that this is equal with their wonderful debut

CD: First Signal - One Step Over The Line
From: Locoaor Date: November 30, 2016 at 23:35
Excelente disco, sin duda para mi el mejor de este 2016, increible la voz de Harry Hess cantando como en los buenos tiempos de Harem Sacarem y mis elojios a Daniel Flores por la base musical espectacular!, ningun tema tiene desperdicio.

CD: Cry of Dawn - Cry of Dawn
From: Locoaor Date: November 30, 2016 at 22:57
Eceeclnet disco de este 2016, temas muy bien plantados y una produccion de nivel, Goran Edman cantando como nunca!

CD: Roxus - Nightstreet
From: 123charpenay Date: November 30, 2016 at 14:10
in my collection i ve only two australian bands.white widdow and bb steal.now roxus is the third.i ve discover this excellent record only today in 2016.better late than never.the main quality of this jewel is the fantastic sound of this record .the production and the mixing are some masterpieces.what extraordinary sound,i ve the feeling to be in the studio with the band.this album is very solid , very consistant and very catchy.no fillers all songs are really very great and varied.track 10 is a beautiful ballad,tracks 5 and 7 are two top class a o r songs,track 6 smell good the rock n roll,track 3 is a very great hard rock song ,tracks 1.2.4.8 and 9 are pure magic hard f m.

CD: Bon Jovi - This House Is Not For Sale
From: 123charpenay Date: November 30, 2016 at 13:59
i know that bon jovi will never come back to his roots,the wonderful hard f m of the first records.nevertheless at each new bon jovi s record i ve the secret wishe ,that by miracle they plays hard f m tainted eighties.it s always a deception,except for " the circle" wich is a very great cd ,not hard f m but very great.here it s a new deception.yes "this house is not for sale" is a super song a hit.but after? it s a decent pop rock american realise not more.it s boring cause all songs looks like to the others.

CD: Tyketto - Don't Come Easy
From: 123charpenay Date: November 29, 2016 at 13:29
a classic record.absoluty essential in each hard fm s collection.only killer songs in this jewel.the ice on the cake is "forever young" ,this song is a hit,one of the best song never written and played by a hard rock band.danny vaughn is an exceptional singer,the others musicians are very talented and the production is perfect.of course this is their best realise so far.all their others cd s are great but they are absoluty not at the same level than dce.the reissue by rockcandy is essential cause we have an excellent bonus track "walk away".like always with rockcandy we have a super booklett with pictures and all the story of the band and all the story of the building of this fantastic and amazing debut album.

CD: The Robert Paul Band - Breaking Into
From: Doug Date: November 29, 2016 at 13:06
Otherwise known as Robbie Gay from the awesome Van Zant band days.

CD: The Works - From Out of Nowhere
From: hair metal again Date: November 29, 2016 at 8:20
Doghouse Reilly : i guess is the way i feel ...listening to THE WORKS makes me realize this is a great band ,but on the other hand with "no big songs" i mean that they couldnt write down songs that were on from other bands back in 89 !"sensational" and"no big" arent opposites my friend!

CD: Stranded - Long Way To Heaven
From: hair metal again Date: November 29, 2016 at 8:14
pretty good release for STRANDED ,but nothing blowminding ,as i can t find any great hooks or songs!the musicianship is ok ,the vocs fine but there is no spark and no real thrill in the songs!don t get me wrong this is no bad ,it s well performed and "only human" and "fight on" are good songs !for die hard fans of the hard rock genre like myself only

CD: Jimi Jamison - Crossroads Moment
From: Eric3 Date: November 28, 2016 at 21:24
I didn't even need to look up the musicians on this album to know who wrote the songs. This album has Jim Peterik's musical fingerprints all over it, and he makes a decent effort in emulating Survivor's golden era, but in clocking in at over an hour long, there is just too much filler here. It could easily have been cut down to 9 or 10 songs, with the latter half being featured more: my personal favorites are "As Is" and "That's Why I Sing," and even then the production lacks life to my ears...with Jamison singing, you know you're going to get decent music, but this album could have been a lot better.

CD: The Works - From Out of Nowhere
From: edwithmj Date: November 28, 2016 at 19:48
Fool to love You is probably my least favourite: I don't think the song is cohesive enough as it sounds all over the place. Standing On Shaky Ground gets things going again and is yet another fast-paced rocker with those wonderful vocals again. Robbery has the best solo on the disc by far and will satisfy the ears. The album ends on a high note with a semi-ballad of sorts with Sherri's Gone which I think lasts slightly too long; the vocals and guitars are passionate enough to excuse this I think though. I think a lot of people unfairly compare this with the more straight-ahead melodic rock sound of Wall of Silence (the singer, the guitarist and the keyboardist went on to that band) which I think is a shame because this album is full of highlights and should be judged (like anything really) on its own merit. A very good album in its own right.

CD: The Works - From Out of Nowhere
From: edwithmj Date: November 28, 2016 at 19:42
The other comments seem to keep comparing this to the Wall of Silence album without actually reviewing this. This frustrated me enough to get this album myself so I could listen for myself. It's certainly not as good as Wall of Silence but it has its own distinct sound I think which I actually like a lot. The opener is very decent with excellent drums and heavy bass; I especially like the vocals too. Wild Reaction is a fast-paced rocker with a Loverboy kind of feel to it. Dancing on a Wing is also very melodic and the guitars are super. Broadway Jane took me by surprise when I first heard it; for me, sax has to be done just right for it to work, otherwise it can ruin a song, but here it works very well; the vocals are extremely catchy too and I'd have to say, this is my favourite off the album. Miss Perfection is another one with catchy vocals and a decent rhythm to keep me interested. Slave To The Thrill is probably my second favourite and is another fast-paced rocker.

CD: The Works - From Out of Nowhere
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 28, 2016 at 13:18
Hair Metal Again: Man, sometimes I scratch my head. First you say "not many big songs but a solid whole," and then you say it's an "amazing" record with many "sensational songs." Which is it?

CD: The Works - From Out of Nowhere
From: hair metal again Date: November 28, 2016 at 4:13
fantastic hard rock debut for THE WORKS with excellent musicianship ,vocals and full of quality hooks that keep your interest high!not many big songs ,but a solid whole with many great lines and big moments!if you liked WALL OF SILENCE you def need to get this amazing release!"slave to the thrill","standing on shaky ground","fool to love you " and "dancing on a wing " are sensational songs indeed!essential

CD: Kix - Hot Wire
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 28, 2016 at 0:15
Having said all that, and much as I love the finished product, I have to wonder if they realy thought some lesser songs like 'Pants On Fire" and"Hee Bee jee Bee Crush" were really the pick of the litter. Because I think if some of this unused material had made the album, we might have us a 90+ rating. Whiteman has made it well-known that Purnell didn't want to use the other guys' songs, so that might be part of the reason. But listening back to some of this stuff, I'm left to wonder what could have been.

CD: Kix - Hot Wire
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 28, 2016 at 0:12
Lurking out there in the dark corners of cyberspace, you can find a set of demos from the Hot Wire sessions. THey include the ten songs that eventually made it on the album in essentially the same shape as the album, but obviously with a rough, raw (but extremely listenable) sound that makes most songs heavier, thanks in part to an almost Queensryche-like bass tone from Donnie Purnell--I mean this is serious rumbling. But of most interest to the Kix superfans like me are the ten non-album songs also in the set. These include several that would go on to make Funny Money records in the future ("Can't Take The Heat," "Good Boy Gone Bad," "Bad Luck," "Dry Eyes Cry") and "Fireballs" which wound up on Show BUsiness. And then there are five songs that never made any records: "Animal Crackers," "Cta 'n' Dogs," "Circles Of Love," "Fire Engine" (which also appears on a similar demo collection from the Blow My Fuse period as well as some live bootlegs) and 'Stone's Throw Away."

CD: Michael Stanley Band - Inside Moves
From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 26, 2016 at 11:38
Good album!!!...the band took a more Southern Rock way in here ...my fave cuts are the ones into the AOR sound that is what the guys of the band stood for at the beginning of their career(#8(nice),9,10,12(nice) & 13)...enjoyable stuff...85/100

CD: Kansas - Two For The Show
From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 26, 2016 at 11:03
Decent live album ...tracks 3,6 & 8 are my faves out of this live stuff...tracks 2,5,7 & 12 stand proud as well.80/100

CD: D'Ercole - Dreams of the Heart
From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 26, 2016 at 10:55
Good Hard Rock album!!!...best cuts for me were 1,4,5,7,10(catchy) & 11...85/100

CD: Chris Ousey - Dream Machine
From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 26, 2016 at 10:36
This is a good Melodic Hard Rock mixed with Hard AOR/AOR release by the voice of Virginia Wolf & Heartland,Chris has this particular tone of voice that,in certain passages,reminds me of Eric Martin...tracks 1,3,5( ),6,7,8,9 & the japanese B/T "Flesh On The Bone" are my faves...enjoyable stuff that followed the man's debut in the same pattern,musically talking.86/100

CD: Skagarack - Big Time
From: Locoaor Date: November 24, 2016 at 20:45
Increible leer tantas tonterias calificando a este grandioso disco como inconsistente, sin duda un discazo de AOR!

CD: Bon Jovi - This House Is Not For Sale
From: masmusic Date: November 24, 2016 at 18:08
All their releases all sound the same, yes agree very boring

CD: WWIII - When God Turned Away
From: hair metal again Date: November 23, 2016 at 4:50
pretty good come back for WWIII , a band that has a certain style and sound ,mostly because of Mandy s unique way of singing!this one is a straight american metal release ,with great riffs and solos and the howling vocals creating a monsterous sound!good stuff

CD: Laurence Archer - LA
From: dany69 Date: November 22, 2016 at 17:36
WHATTTTTTT,i see all this price,,???? Kidding or what,ok,maybe i was lucky but i pay 5 $ for this in a pawn shop,,,and to be honest,,,it,s the price to pay,not more,

CD: Bon Jovi - This House Is Not For Sale
From: Doug Date: November 22, 2016 at 17:01
Man, I am really trying to like this album, but Bon Jovi has become so boring the past decade. What they put out is so generic, real shame I used to dig these guys.

CD: Whitford/St. Holmes - Reunion
From: Doug Date: November 22, 2016 at 16:58
Good album, straight ahead blues tinged rock album. I have their first (disc 2) on vinyl and have always liked "Sharpshooter." These two are the backbone of their other bands.

CD: Santa Ana Winds - Santa An Winds
From: MysticHealer Date: November 21, 2016 at 17:01
Santa Ana Winds is a nice album and lovers of those glory years from the 80's (like me) will drool all over it. It is produced with a very limited budget however and it shows, but do not let that put you off this album as the quality of the songs and the performances shine through. Rebecca Owen is a really great find and Henshaw sings his ass off, great voice. Is there anything that David Saylor can't sing? I've sang his praises a few times on here and he never fails to deliver top quality AOR, and Santa Ana Winds is no exception. Great stuff.

CD: Santa Ana Winds - Santa An Winds
From: MysticHealer Date: November 21, 2016 at 16:50
Produced by AOR/BLVD Records top fella David A Saylor (ex Push UK, Wild Rose) and his right hand man Jon Dewsbury, this is a very interesting 'project. The idea was to get some great singers to sing some cult AOR numbers by the likes of Stan Bush, Outside Edge etc, so here we have 'Santa Ana Winds'. I am not gonna beat around the bush here, there is some really great 80's AOR on this. Plenty of keyboards and great vocals. 'Don't Stand In My Way' (Charlie) kicks off with a really cool vocal by Road Kings singer Bran Henshaw. The Stan Bush written 'Blinded' is next up, Bush fans will know the song but others may recognise it as Quiet Riot did it as 'Slave To Love'. Bill Quateman's 'Love Is A Mystery' is performed excellently as is the Outside Edge song Teardrop, which is beautifully sang by newcomer Rebecca Owen, what a find she is. Saylor produces some awesome vocal work on Sad Cafe's 'Clocks' and killer AOR in the form of the Janet Minto penned 'If We Call It Love'. Killer stuff.

CD: Gotthard - Live and Bangin'
From: 123charpenay Date: November 21, 2016 at 13:50
"stay with me" is the new single of gotthard.look at melodic rock the new video.this song is an atomic bomb,a killer song,a hit.

CD: Raw Silk - Silk Under the Skin
From: hair metal again Date: November 21, 2016 at 10:52
very good debut for RAW SILK and i remember when this got out it has done a certain impact here in Athens!commercial hard rock music with a lot of keys that could be much better with a decent production and a better singer!on the other hand the songwriting is very very good and the hooks are countless!"just like a dream" and "street girl' are excellent songs!Greek fans should have made this a success ,but as i can recall most of them were listening to heavy metal back then...

CD: Kingdom Come - Kingdome Come
From: Stixx Date: November 21, 2016 at 9:13
This is a very fine debut by Lenny and company. Fine written songs, splendid production and mixing job, and a fresh change from the at the time common bubblegum hairspray glam metal (even though a lot of that was really good, sure). There are similarities to the classic Zeppelin, but not that many that they deserved to be called clones - that's very unfair really. Quiet Riot built a career on a cover song and Warrant used studio musicians (Jani and Beau did for Jani's songs '88--'90), not that many complained. Here we got KC, a band that wrote all their material mainly themselves and had a very cool unique style, suddenly plenty of complaints. Very silly if you ask me, and besides they followed up their excellent debut with an equally excellent second disc, proving their great talents. Timeless classic rock with a nice mix of 70s & 80s edge! Really good stuff! This debut reached sales at approximately 2 million worldwide.

CD: Sixx: A.M. - Prayers For The Blessed
From: CC Date: November 19, 2016 at 11:33
Hard to believe that Heroin diaries will be 10 years old next year, but the band is still going strong. Modern vintage was a hit or miss affair with a few musical variations that did not hit home with everyone, but this year we now have two more albums that have kinda reverted to a more tried and tested formula. This one I think is the stronger of the two, but I have only listened to it a few times. Its gonna be hard to top the first two albums, that's a given, but I think this is their strongest album since that pairing.

CD: Grim Reaper - Walking In The Shadows
From: Metal T Date: November 19, 2016 at 0:07
The first GR album in 29 years and this is an awesome record! A lot of the riffs harken back to the 'Rock You To Hell' era.Steve's vox are solid throughout,he still possesses the strong lows,mids and highs.Although noticeably less screaming than on the older GR releases-unmistakeable Grimmett.Even without Bowcott on guitar still a recording worthy of their brand.Good stuff.

CD: The Headpins - Turn It Loud
From: petermexico13 Date: November 17, 2016 at 16:30
Desde Canadá llega esta banda, éste es su primero trabajo, me gusta mucho el trabajo de guitarra de Brian Macleod y un buen trabajo de la sección rítmica, la voz de Darby en este disco en especial se muestra que aún no encontraba su estilo, En lo personal me gusta este hardrock simple con guitarras y potencia, los mejores temas son los ya mencionados " Don´t Ya Ever Leave Me" "Turn it Out Loud" etc. Para los que les gusta ese sonido ochentero, básico y sin complicaciones. Si vas a empezar, recomiendo también el Line of Fire de 1983

CD: Rockhead - Rockhead

i ve seen this band in lyon (france), halle tony garnier, in 1993,in guest of bon jovi for the keep the faith tour.i don t keep a great souvenir of their performance.it s logic their album is mediocre.

CD: FM - Indiscreet 30
From: 123charpenay Date: November 17, 2016 at 13:38
great a o r but very very light.not for me.

CD: Fighter - Bang the Drum
From: 123charpenay Date: November 17, 2016 at 13:35
this christian rock record is very varied (too much).this album have his moments.the best songs are track 1 and 2,two excellent a o r songs.track 5 a classic but very beautiful ballad.track 7 an excellent hard rock song.and track 11 a super song wich smell the south in the vein of doc holliday or lynyrd skynyrd.the rest ?it s very very average even if the sound is perfect and the two singers very great.i think that this band scearch his right way.they plays aor ,ballads with piano,hard rock,southern rock and a little blues rock.i ve absoluty against varied cd s but here it s too much and too average in general.

CD: Rockhead - Rockhead
From: edwithmj Date: November 17, 2016 at 12:29
The vocals are both dreadful and muffled. I wouldn't mind them as much if I could actually understand what was being sung. The songs, while musically decent, do absolutely nothing for me. Dull and lifeless and a very disappointing album indeed.

CD: Airbourne - Runnin' Wild
From: Inmortal Date: November 17, 2016 at 11:02
Es increible que escuche en esta epoca de la vida a un banda con el estilo clasico de los AC/DC, es impresionante pero no iguales me encanta este disco es mortal y poderoso.

CD: Extreme - Waiting for the Punchline
From: hair metal again Date: November 17, 2016 at 10:48
excellent release once again by EXTREME , with Nuno trying to be heard more rock than previous ones!great performance as always and many groovy lines wil satisfy you ,but the songs arent as good as the previous ones ,so this album isnt so strong!"cynical",'hip today',"shadow boxing" are fine songs!i readf above something like "grunge",or "alternative"...it makes me wonder how can somebody say that...

Good group of rock and roll women I really like dragon in the sky

CD: Staxx - Don' No No Betta
From: 123charpenay Date: November 16, 2016 at 13:26
musically this record is very strong,the sound is perfect and for all the songs i ve the same feeling when they starts ,i think "waouh this song will be a bomb".in fact not, absoluty not, cause the songs are very very average and the singer is not terrific.he is very limited he sound really amateur.it s a bad habit of many many retrospect s realise ,they sound amateur and very common.it s not a big surprise if these very little bands never find a deal with a great record company in the eighties.staxx have a certain potential but not more,like one thousand (even more)hard rock bands.

CD: Staxx - Don' No No Betta
From: hair metal again Date: November 15, 2016 at 9:31
excellent hair metal release for STAXX ,a band that its sound is somewhere between XYZ,BABYLON AD &RAZORMAID!fantastic guitar work ,decent songs and most important of all a great sound!"goin down the hard way",'burn my heart","in my dreams" are great songs and overall a strong indy recommended for all hard rockers

CD: The Zeros - Rule The World
From: hair metal again Date: November 14, 2016 at 3:31
very good release for THE ZEROS in their punk ,glam ,hard rockin sound &style!their strong point is the songwriting with Sammy writing down clear,plain,catchy melodies with hooks that stay and overall create a certain vibe!"uh oh",'flaky star","if" are very good songs and overall a nice little indy

CD: Pretty Maids - Kingmaker
From: Eric3 Date: November 13, 2016 at 15:04
Mindblowing. Goes straight for the jugular. You have the more melodic tracks like "Face the World" and "Bulls-Eye" but most of the material on here is HEAVY! Superb effort but we've come to expect nothing less.

CD: World Trade - World Trade

From: 123charpenay Date: November 11, 2016 at 17:30
it s a very very average affair with a singer very common and a guitarist who think that is a god of the six stings.error he make only a boring demonstration.the follow up "looking for action" with the exceptional jeff scott soto is far far better.

CD: Guardian - First Watch
From: 123charpenay Date: November 11, 2016 at 17:21
decent record with great guitar s solo and catchy choruses.absoluty not the best christian rock record ever.i note a big influence from dokken,and a little influence from bloogood.two excellent references but guardian don t play at the same very high level than bloodgood and dokken.all songs are building with exactly the same way.where is the originality?

CD: Motley Crue - Too Fast For Love
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 10, 2016 at 21:47
... but not the Elektra edition). This disc just has such a cool feel about it, a young and hungry band (literally and figuratively) in a city that by most accounts didn't have much of a scene yet, let alone the huge machine that existed later in the '80's. A perfect soundtrack to the sordid tale of Eddie Nash, John Holmes, the Starwood, and the Wonderland murders.

CD: Motley Crue - Too Fast For Love
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 10, 2016 at 21:39
Today marks the 35th anniversary of the original Leathur Records release of Too Fast For Love (remixed and re-released by Elektra in August of '82--you decide which version you like better). Is this the first hair-metal album? I dunno, but if I could go back in time, I would say it probably sounded quite different from most stuff on FM radio back in the heyday of glossy AOR. This is the Crue at their most raw and punky, the hooks not aiming for arena singalongs, Tommy's drumming hyperactive, the guitar playing loose and the tone ragged, Vince's voice shrill and nasal and frequently going off-key on the high shrieks. Much like James Hetfield on Kill 'Em All, he barely resembles what he would become on later albums. Certain songs are not among the band's best, like "Come On And Dance," "Starry Eyes" and "Merry Go Round," which really makes me wonder how early single "Toast Of The town" didn't make the cut. (Its B-side, "Stick To Your Guns" did make the Leathur version, but not the Elektr

CD: Ransom - Soul Asylum
From: Kiss_Rules Date: November 10, 2016 at 15:03
I see that "meatlhead1" mentioned the Stryper connection stating that Oz Fox played some guitars on "Sister Blue". To me the vocals sound quite a bit like Michael Sweet on "Windows of My Heart". That song sounds very Stryper-ish. I am really liking this album.

CD: Phenomena - Dream Runner
From: petermexico13 Date: November 10, 2016 at 13:45
Mi disco favorito de la trilogía inicial, buenas canciones con interpretaciones de primer nivel, todo un clásico de los 80´s, Ray Gillen con esa voz poderosa en "Stop" y " No Retreat No Surrender" mis favoritas, " Move You Lose" otra joya y Glenn Hughes siempre queda bien con esa voz tan especial "Hearts on Fire" y "Surrender", John Wetton con "Did it All for Love" resultó la estrella del disco. Para todo aquel que quiera disfrutar de las grandes producciones de los 80 y de un proyecto de grandes músicos que ahora son tan comunes no así en esos tiempos. Calidad indudable y para disfrutar horas y horas. Gracias al Rock por discos como éste!!

CD: Pretty Maids - Kingmaker
From: aTomiK Date: November 9, 2016 at 14:16
Big Pretty Maids fan here but i have to say that Kingmaker pretty much sucks. The album is akin back to the dark ages which were the cd´s between Spooked and Pandemonium. Where are the hooks? Where are the solos? And what´s with the booklet? I kinda like the cover but red lettering with green background is major no-no. I´d actually like to read the lyrics and other info but with these color choices it´s just impossible. Sorry to say but this feels like a lazy, rushed work and not worth anyones hard earned money. Now someone wake me up from this nightmare...

i can add that the 2008 superb reissue from candy records with two bonus tracks is essential.candy make like always an exceptional job with the complete history of this fantastic debut album and many pictures.track 11 "bad love" is an sensational hard rock song.track 12 "crazy" is so an excellent song.

CD: Hard Rain - Hard Rain
From: petermexico13 Date: November 8, 2016 at 19:27
Este primer trabajo de Hard Rain es producto de su tiempo y el momento de estos 2 grandes músicos ( Tony Clarkin y Bob Catley ), imposible no compararlos con sus trabajos anteriores en Magnum, al final si eres un verdadero fan de este grupo hay que escucharlo y te acabará gustando, el hecho de no tener una banda completa para trabajar las canciones y grabarlas después, es el detalle importante que acaba pasando factura en la producción y sonido de este trabajo, por otra parte entiendo que buscaban diferenciarlo de esa manera del sonido típico de Magnum y lanzar sus canciones tal cual las fueron creando y así mantener su proceso creativo en un momento de introspección después de muchos años de trabajo. En lo personal me gusta este disco, si eres fan de Magnum, seguro lo disfrutarás, si no es así deberás escucharlo primero. Con todo eso, mejor calidad que la mayoría de las nuevas bandas y tendencias.

CD: Maverick - Big Red
From: 123charpenay Date: November 8, 2016 at 14:06
2016 is the best year for melodic rock since 1989,the best year of the history.maverick is an other pretender to the best album of 2016."big red" is the perfect follow up of "qui pro quo" their last gem.it s unbelievebale that a so exicting,a so talented band find some deals with only very small metal labels.the majors are def or they have absoluty no taste."big red" like their last album is an atomic hard rock bomb.perfect sound,excellent singer,fantastic riffs ,exceptional guitar s solo,very catchy songs all along this masterpiece.no fillers only killer songs.and this time,the ice on the cake we have a beautiful,top class ballad (track 11).you can buy this jewel closed eyes.trust me.

i ve submit this record to heavy harmonies cause this album is really excellent.the production from hermann rarebell (scorpions)is exceptional.what extraordinary sound, i ve the feeling to be in the studio with the band.unbreakable is a young band who play a top class melodic fresh modern hard rock .only one filler track 11,the rest is simply fabulous with fantastic riffs and guitar s solo.all songs have some very catchy choruses wich enter very easely in your brain.this record is full of hits,the songs are short ,between 3 and 4 minutes.all could easely by played on all rock s radios of this planet.this band is very talented cause the two super ballads ,track 7 and 10,are influenced by scorpions.i don t understand that this remarkable band have not find a deal with a major.you can buy this cd closed eyes.the quality is at the rendez vous.

From: petermexico13 Date: October 31, 2016 at 17:35
This record is a masterpiece! very underrated, Es cierto que este disco inició como un proyecto en solitario, pero una vez que se fueron juntando las piezas acabó siendo un trabajo muy completo repleto de temas exquisitos y alguna nueva versión de temas propios, escuchar "Imaginos" es entrar en el mundo de Blue Oyster Cult con esos temas repletos de buenos arreglos y letras inteligentes, una obra para adentrarse en cada historia y cada arreglo, hay que sentarse a disfrutar esta obra, unos de los mejores trabajos de finales de los 80. Para muchos desconocido, más que recomendable descubrir esta gran pieza de rock americano.

From: juan carlos Date: October 30, 2016 at 11:39
Yep at first listens this one can be easily considered one of the Best Melodic Rock/AOR album of 2016 indeed. It almost has it all, melodies, catchy tunes etc. 90/100

CD: Angels or Kings - Kings Of Nowhere
From: Axe Slinger Date: October 29, 2016 at 20:42
In giving a review for Go Ask the Moon, I saw that not a single review was done for this disc. I really can't believe that as it was one of my favorites of 2014 and was on a few "..best of" from others as well. Go Ask the Moon is a bit better but they are both very, very good. If you are a fan of Pride, the more traditional Harem Scarem, or Hardline, you might want to check these guys out. 91 / 100

CD: Treat - Ghost Of Graceland
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 29, 2016 at 13:17
This is overall a good album guys!!!...for me it went from more to less while listening to it but still caught me up ...my fave tracks are 2( ),3,5,6,7(solid mid tempo),8,9 & 12...recommended...87/100

CD: Wigelius - Tabula Rasa
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 29, 2016 at 12:42
For me is the contrary,the band's debut album was outstanding compared with this following one...anyway the album still offers good tracks in the shape of the nice ones which happen to be my faves "These Tears I Cry" & "Long Way From Home"...another good shots are 5,6,9,10(nice)& 11(nice)...enjoyable Record if you want my objective opinion.86/100

CD: Angels or Kings - Go Ask The Moon
From: Axe Slinger Date: October 29, 2016 at 10:48
Holy smokes. I really liked the first disc a lot but this one is great. For reference, it sounds like a mix of newer Hardline and Harem Scarem. By now, there isn't going to be anything that sounds "new" but we can only hope to continue to get music that keeps all the elements we love and is mixed very well. Angels or Kings is all of that. Melodies at every turn, tons of harmonic tracks both musically and vocally and a very strong mix. Love it 94 / 100

From: the rocker Date: October 28, 2016 at 22:12
Loving this album!Johnny Sounds better than ever, and the songs are very strong. It's still a toss up of which one I like more(this or Danger Zone).

CD: Tygers Of Pan Tang - Crazy Nights
From: petermexico13 Date: October 27, 2016 at 15:12
En verdad me sorprende que tenga una calificación tan baja este trabajo, su anterior Spellbound es para muchos el mejor, la llegada se John Sykes le dió un mejor sonido y calidad a sus canciones, en lo personal Yo prefiero este disco "Love Don´t Stay", Running Out of Time" "Never Satisfied" "Do it Good" "Stormlands" son suficientes razones para disfrutar este disco, en lo personal es uno de mis preferidos de la NWOBHM, sus 4 primeros trabajos son parte de la historia importante del género, todo buen seguidor del verdadero Heavy Metal debe tenerlos, a disfrutar de ese sonido tan especial que tienen las grabaciones de principios de los 80. Tygers of Pantang seguirán siendo uno de los grandes y favoritos de esa época dorada!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 26, 2016 at 18:37
This is simply adult Rock with certain poppy parts...Thorsten Bertermann sounds like the missing brother of Steve Winwood and somehow Peter Gabrielas well...musically is good,maybe Steve Winwood can be a reference in sound but edgy(and the vocals more than obvious) and perhaps Martin Page(the guy of the one hit wonder song "In The House Of Stone And Light",remember?...tracks 3,5(nice)6,7,8,9 & 10 are fine cuts.84/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 26, 2016 at 17:49
If you are into the likes of Pat Benatar,Quaterflash,Toronto,Headpins or even Heart then you might like these chicks ...tracks 1,2(nice),,3,4,5,6,8(nice),9 & 10(AOR) are pleasant hard melodic rocking songs...85/100

CD: The Radio Sun - Heaven Or Heartbreak
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 26, 2016 at 17:04
For me this album is a nice blend of modern AOR/Pop ...very catchy songs all over backed with a subtle vocalist that go in the same line of probably 7th Heaven,Wigelius or alikes...tracks 1(great!),2(very catchy),3(nice),5,6,9,10 & 11 will put a smile in your face for sure(including the cover ones)...87/100

CD: Starship - Loveless Fascination
From: edwithmj Date: October 25, 2016 at 19:46
Speak for yourself Doghouse, I'm certainly interested in more Starship and was excited at the thought of a new album, but it's better to consider this a Mickey Thomas solo disc really. The album itself is fairly modern and different from the other albums (unfortunately it is quite dissimilar to the excellent Love Among The Cannibals). Don't let that put you off though as Thomas' vocal skills are still there and Jeff Pilson (yes, bizarrely Pilson wrote all the songs except tracks 8 and 10 and co-produced the album too) writes some decent songs. My picks from this one include How Do You Sleep?, Loveless Fascination (very catchy), the modernish ballad What Did I Ever Do?, How Will I Get By?, and my favourite, the Diane Warren-penned ballad duet Nothin' Can Keep Me From You (about as close to the band's original sound as the album gets). As stated above, this is a lot more guitar-driven and even resident Mickey Thomas hater Doghouse Reilly might find a few tracks on here that he likes.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 25, 2016 at 18:28
A bit less stronger than the previous release but still having some goodie ones JLT is simply a master of the Melodic Hard Rock/AOR field and that's unquestionable...tracks 1,2,4(rocks!),7,9,10 & 11 go into my book of music for sure...87/100

CD: Vinnie Vincent - Vinnie Vincent Invasion
From: hair metal again Date: October 25, 2016 at 3:45
excellent debut for VINNIE VINCENT s INVASION back in 86 ,just as the hard rock genre was ready to explode and rule the planet!i agree that this one has extreme excess ,but i think that this is exactly its strong point ,along with great riffs,solos,songs and looks!"no substitute","back on the streets","boyz are gonna rock",'animal" and "i wanna be you victim" are fantastic songs and overall a classic of the mid 80 s hard rock scene

CD: Slyce - Slyce
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 24, 2016 at 18:55
A kind album..a "slice" of smoothie Pop/Pompish songs with a taste of AOR but superficially...Styx & Ole Evenrude maybe?...plenty of nice songs such as tracks 1,2,3( ),4,6,7,8,10,12,14 & 15...enjoyable to listen while drinking a glass of fine wine...85/100

CD: Verity - Interrupted Journey
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 24, 2016 at 18:08
Yeah i agree with first comment!!!...this is a great release,a band that strongly reminded me of acts such as Spys,Orion The Hunter & Triumph ...tracks 1,2,4(nice & catchy),5(rocks!),6(rocks!,live song),7,8,9(nice)& 10(nice)are directly into my book of music...recommended stuff indeed...85/100

CD: Seventh Wonder - Waiting in the Wings
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 24, 2016 at 17:58
Good musicians in here but with an extremely Dream Theater influence IN ALL ASPECTS(from music direction up to the lead vocalist)and in my very humble opinion that makes it lack of originality and obviously kinda dull...anyway is not a bad album if you try to see it in another perspective...tracks 5,6,7 and the best one to me "The Edge of My Blade" are the highlights of the release...82/100

CD: Virginia Wolf - Virginia Wolf
From: hair metal again Date: October 24, 2016 at 5:47
what a masterpiece this is!VIRGINIA WOLF achieve perfection with their amazing songwriting and mostly because of Chris Ousey s outstanding vocal performance(one of the best ever heard)!"livin on a knife edge',"goodbye don t mean forever",'for all we know" and "only love' are sensational songs and overall VIRGINIA WOLF s debut a hard rock classic

CD: Dare - Sacred Ground
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 23, 2016 at 12:57
Lovely album...there's not a secret that the band has changed its music direction through the years and that nowadays what we listen is a more mellow act with some celtic/irish flavour inspiration in every song..."You Carried Me" & "Along The Heather" are very pleasant songs and fave ones but tracks 1,2(nice)5,6,7,8(nice) & 10 are also appealing cuts that you might like as well,i think...recommended stuff...87/100

CD: Stargazer - Stargazer
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 22, 2016 at 12:47
Wow i was really surprised by this act ...good songs in the line as to say country mates Domain and with a little flavour of Deep Purple/Rainbow here and there...tracks 1,2,3(nice mid tempo),6(solid mid tempo),7,8 & 12 are into my book of music...enjoyable stuff indeed .86/100

CD: AC/DC - Blow Up Your Video

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.

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!!

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.

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: 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.

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
