CD: Restless - Alone In The Dark
From: Swazi Date: February 18, 2019 at 15:03
That there are only 2 comments after 20 years says a lot. This release is mostly crap and I found it painful to listen to it. The singer cannot sing and it is no surprise to me that he seems to have disappeared from the scene.

CD: Balaam and the Angel - Days of Madness
From: hair metal again Date: February 18, 2019 at 14:13
very good hard rock release for BALAAM AND THE ANGEL back in 89 and this is what happens when an English band goes to the States!the sound becomes more hard rocking and the attitude gets better!Days Of Madness will satisfy most hard rockers with its classic sound and strong production by Steve Brown!"i took a little","she really gets to me","did you fall " are the highlights !recommended

CD: Dion Bayman - Better Days
From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 17, 2019 at 17:00
Wow...no comments yet but so far only mine?...this is a really pleasant and overall enjoyable modern AOR release...the guy is a very talented songwriter and composer for sure and has been approved here ...my fave cuts are # 1,2,3,4,5(nice),6,8(nice),9 & 10...as u can read basically the whole album is a dope of melodic stuff...highly recommended...85/100

CD: Starbreaker - Dysphoria
From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 17, 2019 at 16:40
It took 11 long years for a come back Record of this "in & off" band/project...Tony is a great as usual and the songs are into that little TNT vibe here and there...my fave ones are # 1,2,4,6,7 & 10(good cover of Judas Priest classic song)...right stuff...80/100

CD: Kane Roberts - The New Normal
From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 17, 2019 at 16:22
The wrestler of Rock & Roll is back!!!...but forget about his AOR past ...the list of invited guests is enviable but the sound created can be related with Kip Winger"s alternative solo stuff(in fact the man himself is in here contributing)...my fave ones are # 5,6,8 & 9...a decent come back but do not wait for excitement at all.75/100...this "new" is really kinda "normal".

CD: Kenny McGee - Kenny McGee
From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 17, 2019 at 15:55
Wow very good album in here indeed ...fans of Hard Rock with Glam touches will love it to death...Kenny is a great vocalist for the genre...tracks #1,2,3,4(AORish),6(cool smoothie),9,10,11,12 & 13 are going directly to my book of music...highly recommended stuff if u r into the aforementioned music style...85/100

CD: State of Salazar - All the Way
From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 17, 2019 at 15:28
Great debut of a band that has Toto and Work Of Art as main references in their music direction ...my fave cuts are # 4(beautiful),5,6,7,8(beautiful),11 & 12(beautiful)...recommended stuff...86/100.

CD: State of Salazar - Superhero
From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 17, 2019 at 14:53
Nice album that will suit fans of Work Of Art & Toto for instance ...tracks # 1,2,3,4(Totoish 100%),5 & 11 are the ones in my book of music...enjoyable stuff...83/100

CD: Toby Hitchcock - Reckoning
From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 17, 2019 at 13:37
Perfect and solid sound fulfilled with a powerful vocalist...Toby is nowadays one of the most respected singers of the AOR genre even though his career with Pride Of Lions is in a 'stand by" mode right now and doing his own solo stuff that took him 8 years to release a 2nd album ...my fave tracks are #2,3(beautiful),7,8,9 & 11.Not as solid as his 2011 debut but for sure is a lovely one as well.85/100

CD: Wake The Nations - Heartrock
From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 17, 2019 at 12:45
Cool album with a sound that is becoming quite typical of this new modern melodic Rock suff...my fave cuts are "Something In Your Eyes"and "Higher"(sounds like Kamelot influenced semi Power Metal song)...tracks # 1(good starter!),2,4(nice),6,7 & 8 are also appealing ones...in general lines an enthusiastic release,decent to say the least.80/100

CD: Rainbow - Difficult to Cure
From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 16, 2019 at 21:46
Good album for sure with Joe giving his powerful vocal skills to the top of it and with a Purpleish sound ...tracks # 1(hit single),2,3,4 & 6 are the ones for me...enjoyable stuff...80/100

CD: Praying Mantis - Time Tells No Lies
From: hair metal again Date: February 15, 2019 at 9:24
very good debut for PRAYING MANTIS in the early 80 s with a solid professional sound & performance and many good songs around like "cheated",'children of the earth","rich city kids"and "flirting with suicide"!a classic of that era for sure

CD: Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime
From: hair metal again Date: February 15, 2019 at 2:30
absolute masterpiece for the mighty QUEENSRYCHE back in 88 and of course their finest moment!when i bought that vinyl i was amazed by its enregy,performance and the marvelous songwriting!i still cant find anything similar and i d say that this iconic release is one of the releases of my life!

CD: Blue Oyster Cult - Fire of Unknown Origin
From: Doug Date: February 14, 2019 at 12:35
So, I pulled this CD out the other day and have been listening to it a bit. Reading the comments over the years, it seems all are favorable. But for me, except for "Burnin' for You," which is simply stellar and a song that quite frankly, it's production and sound value is completely better than anything else on this album, the rest of the songs are really a mish-mash of techno, "tinny" type songs. The album has no real identity to it, IMO.

CD: Queensryche - Hear in the Now Frontier
From: hair metal again Date: February 13, 2019 at 12:02
very good release for QUEENSRYCHE trying to be updated and less prog ,but even like that their talent is obvious!the production isnt clear and the guitar parts are probably their worst but you can find many hooks and interested lines!"hit the black","sign of the times","all i want" and "spool " are the standout songs !good stuff here

CD: Def Leppard - Songs From the Sparkle Lounge
From: 123charpenay Date: February 13, 2019 at 11:20
great album,not perfect but great.track 1 and 6 sound too modern and not enough melodic at my taste.track 4 is a ballad in the vein of the beattles,not for me.track 12 (first japan bonus track) is a piano version of this ballad.definitively not for me.track 13 ,the second japan bonus track 13 is a def leppard s version of the excellent "nine lives".all the other songs are really excellent.we find def leppard in very great inspiration and disposal.i think that this record is at the same level than "euphoria".

CD: Queensryche - Empire
From: hair metal again Date: February 12, 2019 at 15:40
a def masterpiece for QUEENSRYCHE, a unique release that cannot be again!perfection in every aspect and a massive sound &production with the band finally reaching the commercial success that seeked!cant find anything missing and surely Empire is one of my best 90 s albums and a fine piece of art

CD: Babylon Shakes - Exile to the Velveteen Lounge
From: 123charpenay Date: February 12, 2019 at 13:29
it a nightmare,it s awful the "singer" sing like a duck.i don t understand how they can dare put on the market a record with a "singer" like this!!!!!!!!!!!!

CD: First Night - First Night
From: 123charpenay Date: February 12, 2019 at 13:11
i ve listen several songs on you tube wow!!!!!the shock.it s extraordinary.this is top class aor songs.the singer have the same voice than per gessle (roxette).so this record is an absolute dream.this is roxette with guitars.i ve listen 6 or 7 songs ,all are killer songs,only hits.fans of roxette buy buy buy.!!!!!!!!!of course i will order this jewel closed eyes!!!!!

CD: Queensryche - Queensryche
From: hair metal again Date: February 12, 2019 at 1:51
excellent US power metal for QUEENSRYCHE back in 83 and a strong start for a great act!howling vocals and exceptional guitar solos showed from the start what it d gonna be!bought that after the Mindcrime release was out and really appreciated that early 80 s metal vibe

CD: Kane Roberts - The New Normal
From: CLOUD FORCE Date: February 11, 2019 at 18:01
Not what I was waiting for..it's not 80s and is not classic AOR he used to play,but is well crafted,and even if is modern,the melodies are really catch,so you can't say is a bad album-

CD: Wild Ride - Tension And Desire
From: hair metal again Date: February 11, 2019 at 2:23
sensational commercial hard rock music for WILD RIDE back in 93 with their sound being somewhere between ZINATRA,SLEEZE BEEZ &FRONTLINE!the hooks are everywhere and the balance between keys &guitar gives this one a fine radio commercial vibe but always with a hard edge that i so much love!the songs are exceptional with tunes like 'love will find its way","this time","dont save your love" and "stop the fighting" !essential

CD: Masi - Downtown Dreamers
From: dany69 Date: February 9, 2019 at 18:03
Amazing Album,,,, Classic

CD: Kane Roberts - Saints and Sinners
From: dany69 Date: February 9, 2019 at 17:37
PURE GOLD !!!!!!! MASTERPIECE

CD: Best of 2018 - Best of 2018
From: CC Date: February 9, 2019 at 17:11
Must admit I did not buy a huge amount of new albums last year, but my top 5 is fairly easy. In no particular order: Midnite City - There goes the neighbourhood, Halestorm - Vicious, Dee Snider - For the love of metal, Diamante - Coming in hot & Maverick - Cold star dancer. Now while I have had a download of it since last year, I would have loved to put the new Donnie Vie album on the list, but as it has not been officially released yet, I will save that for my 2019 list as that beats most if not all of that top 5 for me.

CD: Rick Springfield - Working Class Dog
From: hair metal again Date: February 9, 2019 at 7:51
excellent pop rock release for RICK SPRINGFIELD in the early 80 s and his terrific songwriting ablility gets obvious with plenty of hooks and fine lines!everything Rick does is about a radio friendly song and i really dig his style!"love is alright tonite"

CD: Valentine - Valentine
From: gooup Date: February 7, 2019 at 19:17
A flawless disc ... from start to finish.

CD: Queensryche - Condition Human
From: Doug Date: February 7, 2019 at 11:48
From the above comment, I would say the latter, it's their sophomore effort. It took a few spins, but I really like this album.

CD: Cry Wolf - Crunch
From: 123charpenay Date: February 6, 2019 at 11:29
hum i m very surprised by all the very great comments about this record.of course i respect but i don t understand.cry wolf play a decent american hard rock influenced a little by stryper or autograph.no problem with the production,the sound is great but the problem is the inspiration and the talent of this band.all is average in this album the singer,his voice is decent but have absoluty nothing extraordinary,the songs ,no killer songs, no hits at the horizon, no choruses wich will catch you and stay in your brain.when i listen this cd ,i ve the feeling to have hearing this kind of hard rock one million times absoluty no surprise.for make short when i hear cry wolf i feel nothing.for me it s a decent but a second zone band.they don t plays in champion s league.

CD: Boneyard Dog - Bluesbound Train
From: 123charpenay Date: February 6, 2019 at 11:04
the excellent rob mancini on vocals,yes i take.but with his new band theys plays a real bluesy rock.it s not bad but not for me.it s too much bluesy at my taste.fans of blues rock will be very pleased wiyh this album.me i prefer "rock n roll circus" from rob mancini ,a top class a o r record.

CD: Cry Wolf - Crunch
From: hair metal again Date: February 6, 2019 at 3:39
hair metal masterpiece for CRY WOLF and i was blessed to buy that vinyl back in the day and spin it a lot!blistering commercial hard rock music with sensational musicianship &vocals along with fine songwriting!imagine a mix of VAN HALEN &STRYPER with the hair metal basics and you get an idea of what they sound!essential ,as its soooo good

CD: Best of 2018 - Best of 2018
From: Scandiman Date: February 5, 2019 at 15:07

CD: Queensryche - Rage for Order
From: hair metal again Date: February 5, 2019 at 13:07
this is the release that we all understood that QUEENSRYCHE is a great band !unique approach ,flawless talent and amazing hooks that keep the interset in every tune along with the expected capable musicianship!"walk in the shadows"," i dream in infrared","gonna get close to you","the killing words" are excellent songs indeed!classic

CD: Dare - The Power of Nature...Live in Munich
From: titothetitan Date: February 5, 2019 at 12:32
The CD is great but the Dvd doesn't include the 'Out of the Silence' songs. I wonder why?

CD: Best of 2018 - Best of 2018

CD: Best of 2018 - Best of 2018
From: Doug Date: February 4, 2019 at 12:22
Love the best of lists on the mighty HH! For me, in 2018: 1. Stone Temple Pilots – “S/T” (what a GREAT return) 2. Judas Priest – “Firepower” (Fantastic!) 3. Godsmack – “When Legends Rise” (Smack purists probably quibble over this one, since it’s more commercial sounding, but I liked it). 4. Kissin' Dynamite – “Ecstasy” (a real gem, check it out) 5. Slash – “Living the Dream” (Myles with Slash, 'nuff said) 6. Halestorm – “Vicious” (Lzzy Hale, heck yeah!) 7. Dead Daisies – “Burn it Down” (Doug Aldrich, such a talented and sought after guitarist) 8. W.E.T. – “Earthrage” (I'm a big fan of Erik Martensson)

CD: Uriah Heep - Raging Silence
From: hair metal again Date: February 4, 2019 at 10:22
excellent release indeed for URIAH HEEP back in 89 with Mick doing again a great job in performing and songwriting with a fine commercial sound and many great songs like "blood red roses","cry freedom","rich kid","when the war is over"!highly recommended

From: hair metal again Date: February 2, 2019 at 7:53
a clear masterpiece for SURVIVOR with a perfect balanced commercial hard rock sound as most of the releases at the time !Frank Filipetti did an excellent job as he managed to bring less but better quality Jim Peterik and more on the front Frankie s exceptional guitar skills!wow what an album

Testing the comments.

CD: Kane Roberts - The New Normal
From: CC Date: February 1, 2019 at 18:14
It's not the Kane Roberts album that we have all waited decades for for sure, and it will certainly not appeal to a lot of people, but there are some really good songs on this one if you like rock music with a bit of modern touch to it. I will admit there are a couple of tracks that really did nothing for me, but overall I really enjoyed this despite wishing he would release something a little more classic sounding. There is some absolute blistering guitar work on this as well. I know this one will get a lot of hate from the faithful, and in many respects you cannot blame them, but for those open to something different it's worth a punt.

CD: Radio Moscow - World Service
From: 123charpenay Date: February 1, 2019 at 9:05
i can say that this record is better than their second effort "get a new life".nevertheless this affair stay very very average.ok the sound is perfect ,the production a must but the songs are just decent.the singer is weak ,and sometimes (track 1) he is out of tune and his voice is not adapted to this type of hard rock.with an exceptional singer like ron young (little caesar)this cd could be better.even if little caesar plays in champion s league and radio moscow in a second or third zone hard rock band.this album is for die hard fans of american indie realises.

Well, i really don't know what to say after listin this 3 times,,,??? maybe i need another one,? Ok,,,this album is dark,,well made,,,but one thing is sure,if you think about some songs like Rebel Heart,,,Woman Of the Edge Of Love,,,Fighter,,,,Forget this,,,it's a great effort that is sure but ?????? i will try this again cause i love Kane BUT ???????? That is not at all what i waited For,,,,

CD: Thunder - Please Remain Seated
From: masmusic Date: January 30, 2019 at 19:42
They wanted to re record the songs totally different from the originals. Well mission accomplished! Played this the other day and probably will never play it again! This release is for very very die hard fans only! I love Thunder but don't love this! I see no logic in doing what they did. If these songs would of been released in place of the originals, the band would of disappeared and their music career would be over. 5/10

From: hair metal again Date: January 30, 2019 at 13:19

CD: Toby Hitchcock - Reckoning
From: Eric3 Date: January 28, 2019 at 14:45
This sounds nothing at all like Mercury's Down. It's more like Find Me with Hitchcock on vocals rather than LaBlanc. The production is almost completely identical, save for some interesting string arrangements scattered here and there. It's not bad, but I'm missing the power of the debut.

CD: Def Leppard - Songs From the Sparkle Lounge
From: hair metal again Date: January 28, 2019 at 5:44

From: hair metal again Date: January 26, 2019 at 3:16
fantastic release for URIAH HEEP back in early 80 s and probably their best ever!the decade has changed and now things got heavier and the songwriting more consistent cause commercial success is a goal for the bands !all the songs are excellent ,Mick s guitar better than ever and the musicianship of te highest level!surely Abominog is one of the best of the hard rock scene at the time

CD: Shy - Misspent Youth
From: edwithmj Date: January 24, 2019 at 11:33
I don't unerstand a lot of the negative opinions about this one. This is easily better than Excess All Areas, which was only slightly above average for me. We start off with a superb rocker Give It All You Got which got me hooked from the first listen. Burnin' Up and Money are two more hard rockers with super solos, After The Love Is Gone is a decent ballad with unbeatable vocals. My final pick is Broken Heart with unforgettable lyrics. The guitars and vocals are the best they'd ever been by the band. Lovely stuff.

From: Gidd Bigo Date: January 23, 2019 at 23:21
I really can't comment on this CD as a whole, because every time I get to "Frozen Love" I keep hitting repeat. I just don't get tired of this one, and it's worth the price of the CD just for that one song.

the main quality of this record is the sound.it s amazing for an indie realise.the sound and the production are excellent,very very clear.but after ,that s all......radio moscow play a very average american hard rock.nothing special ,nothing spectacular.musically is not really bad,but no songs catch me.to be very honest it s clear that this band is not helped by his (very mediocre) singer.

pretty good release for FLIES ON FIRE with a great hard rocking sound that is somewhere betweeN , JUNKYARD and the BLACK CROWES but not so good of course!their biggest problem seems to be the songwriting which needs to be better cause it s never just the sound or the attitude!i m sure they must been a fine live act though

From: 123charpenay Date: January 21, 2019 at 13:03
totally agree my rick my venezuelian friend.this record is exceptionnal.the borg brothers have made a fantastic job. they plays all instruments ,they write all the songs and produced perfectly this atomic bomb.christopher have a really beautiful voice.he is so the art nation s guitarist.all the songs are very catchy,you will be immediatly under the charm.track 13 the instrumental"more than a thousand charades" is extraordinary.this beautiful music reminds me the music of the movie "midnight express" (giorgio moroder).the japan import is essential cause there is two super bonus tracks.track 14 "stay" is a superb acoustic song ,and track 15 is the demo version of track 4 "on my shoulder".this album is one more remarkable realise of 2018.

From: hair metal again Date: January 21, 2019 at 3:49

CD: Uriah Heep - Fallen Angel
From: hair metal again Date: January 18, 2019 at 10:50
very good album for URIAH HEEP capturing the spirit of the late 70 s with a less prog approach ,always under their trademark sound &quality!sounds fresh & solid and found many good songs like 'woman of the night','falling in love','fallen angel' and 'put your lovin on me'!good stuff

CD: Magic Dance - New Eyes
From: Eric3 Date: January 15, 2019 at 22:06
Great album with an '80s night drive atmosphere. The production is kind of a letdown (guitar tone could be better) but the vocal melodies and keyboards are both top-notch, as we've come to expect from this artist.

CD: Maverick - Cold Star Dancer
From: CC Date: January 15, 2019 at 17:41
I kept hearing things about this band, but had listened to a couple of songs here and there but never really thought 'yeah, gotta go out and buy their music'. When they announced this album I decided to take a punt and preorder it. Thank god I did as what an amazing album it is. On the strength of this I went out and bought their previous two releases, and while good, they just did not hook me like this one did (that might explain why previous listens did not excite me). There is defo some 'Irish' influence in this with the odd Thin Lizzy nod here and there, but overall its a damn good mix of styles without sounding like anyone else. Seize the day and Goodbye are the two real standout tracks for me, and were some of the strongest songs from last year for me.

pretty good 2nd step for RADIO MOSCOW back in 93 with a clear nice hard rock sound and songs that offer the basics without being something blowminding!'save me','wild side of life','when the rain comes' and 'put a little love' are the highlights of this enjoyable little indie!

CD: Nashville Pussy - Pleased to Eat You
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 14, 2019 at 22:15
... laced, ZZ Top-esque 'Hang Tight.' I'm curious if the subject of 'Go Home And Die' is long-departed original bassist Corey Parks (similarly immortalized in 'You Give Drugs A Bad Name' from Say Something Nasty), or if it might be referring to former drummer Jeremy Thompson, who was replaced with very little fanfare in late 2016.

CD: Nashville Pussy - Pleased to Eat You
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 14, 2019 at 22:12
I'm an enormous fan of Nashvillle Pussy, so it pains me to report that Pleased To Eat You falls into the lower half of their catalog. The production sounds like the remixed version of From Hell To Texas: raw, to go along with some undercooked songs. There are three covers here: 'Testify' (George Clinton), 'Woke Up This Morning' (Nazareth), and 'CCKMP (Steve Earle). The first two are fun, if a little goofy, but the latter (which stands for Cocaine Cannot Kill My Pain') is dreadful, possibly the worst song this band has done (and Blaine sounds like he has the microphone right in his mouth, on this and several other songs, which is really annoying). 'Endless Ride' is a plodding, wannabe southern-rock jam that just drones along, and a few others just feel tossed-off, and again, the production really lays bare some of the weaknesses. The best songs are 'She Keeps Me Coming,' the snide 'We Want A War,' 'Just Another White Boy,' 'Low-Down Dirty Pig,' 'Drinkin' My Life Away,' and the harmonica

This dude won 'The Voice, Senior' in Germany. Being here in the U.S., I don't know much about him, but the clip I saw [and heard] from him singing Heart's 'Alone' was excellent, IMO.

CD: Amaranthe - Helix
From: Doug Date: January 11, 2019 at 11:43
Amaranthe is an unusual band for me, in that their uniqueness is having three singers. I guess it's a preference thing - for me, I prefer just Elize.

excellent release for GUS G offering massive guitar sound ,fine songs and the biggest surprise :2 fine commecial hard rock songs !to be honest didnt expect that to be so good and of course the presence of Jeff and Mats did things even better for a release that keeps the interest and has no fillers!recommended

CD: Warrior Soul - Chill Pill
From: ghettonation73 Date: January 9, 2019 at 19:45
The first three CDs kicked ass, this one bombed. The only good songs on here are 'Cargos Of Doom, 'Concrete Frontier,' and 'Song In Your Mind.' Other than that, the rest of the CD is horrible, 3 out of 10!

CD: Hardline - Double Eclipse
From: ghettonation73 Date: January 9, 2019 at 19:15
Great CD. It's just that it came out in the lame duck year of 1992. That was the last good year for great rock and roll, before alternative took over completely!

From: Doug Date: January 4, 2019 at 13:42
I saw this on the shelf at my local library the other day and checked it out. Agree with many of the above [rather old] comments, a pretty uninspired album. Tracks 1, 4, 5, 10 and 12 are, I guess, okay. Track 7, 'Create a Monster' and Track 10, 'So Much For Love' are ridiculously bad.

superb release for WHITECROSS back in 94 with the quality being of the highest lever in terms of performance,sound,vibe,songwriting!sensational vocals as always,great guitar work and fine songs like 'no other love','keep prayin','salt city' and 'good bye cruel world'!eesential

ok debut for FLYTE from Canada offering some commercial hard rock tunes ,but unfortunately nothing remarkable as the band isnt quite solid and sometimes they dont sound asa whole but as individuals!the vocals are interesting though and i found some good songs like 'love is a weapon','hello stranger' !not the worst around as it s a true effort ,just not solid

Many many years ago there was a short lived store near to me that was basically a warehouse clearance store for Our price, and it used to sell cassettes and CD's at incredibly low prices. I would go in there on a weekly basis and buy pretty much anything (on cassette back then) that looked like 80s hair metal, glam, metal or rock. I bought Screwed blued and tattooed this way. Beyond a couple of songs, I thought it was just 'OK'. Years later I replaced the cassette with a CD and decided to pick up this one with little expectations. God damn though was I blown away by this one. Maybe it was the Def Leppard influence that was so obvious on this one, or maybe it was just the songs were so much better, but whatever it was it kicked my arse. Listening to it again now on the last day of 2018 and it still sounds fucking great. Thank god for cheap CDs or else I might never have bothered with this.

If you don't need to own the complete discography of their first decade (Atlantic years), just have an idea what the music is about, this compilation is a good choice. Since the songs were selected by fans, someone might miss their favourite track (Lies In The Sand eg ). Despite this, I like the selection which is a mixture of hard rock, alternative and progressive rock, pop, grunge, funky, soul...

It's no as strong as his last AOR album (Full Circle) or Alien last album (Eternity) but it sounds nice and well-produced.

From: titothetitan Date: December 26, 2018 at 12:43
'Conspiracy' is the only stand-out song of this album. 'Stay Away' is Ok, but it's not 'Best of Me' or 'We Are One'. 'Hunger' is good, but not great. 'Gimme One More Night' and 'Party All Over' are okay too.

CD: Otherwise - Peace At All Costs
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: December 24, 2018 at 12:08
If you heard Otherwise's plodding, ponderous salute-the-troops ballad 'SWe Are Soldiers' from 2012, it should tell you all you need to know about this band. This is more of that overly-earnest, baritone-voiced, heavy-breathing postgrunge bullshit that manages to be overwrought and melodramatic yet somehow droning and dull at the same time.

A compilation of demos(from early 80,s to late of the same decade) put together by keyboard player Noel Hart and guitar player Dragan Stanic of this marvellous aussie AOR band that is much in the vein of acts such as Heavy Pettin,Glasgow or Garrison to name some.Tracks # 1,2,3,7,8,13 & 14 are the ones for me...enjoyable stuff and mandatory to have if you are really into the essence of the genre.83/100

Appropriately named, a bit of a scatterbrained album.

CD: Uriah Heep - Demons And Wizards
From: hair metal again Date: December 19, 2018 at 6:06
very good album for URIAH HEEP in the early 70 s and from the first tunes you can realize that the band was in great shape ,full of energy and with good looks!the sound is a great mix of 70 s hard rock and prog rock and the musicianship truly excellent!'easy livin' is an all time classic of rock and songs like 'the wizard','traveller in time' are fine indeed!among the basics of the hard rock scene i guess

CD: The Wild! - GxDxWxB

The only bad thing about this disc is that it's only seven songs. What, you couldn't come up with three more to make a full album? A pretty nice criticism to have, really. This is deceptively simple, power-chord, blues-dipped, punk-injected rock 'n' roll, something like what Buckcherry have always been aiming for but can never reach. I'm also reminded of a band like Snew, only with the higher caliber hooks Snew lacked. Jackyl, American Dog, Junkyard, Dirty Looks, Rhino Bucket, and all those other gutter-dwelling dirtballs all feature inThe Wild!'s sound to varying degrees. The only letup comes with the slow blooze of 'What About You,' whose lyrics are a bit ridiculous, yes ('Every woan wants a mister, every man just wants somethin' to screw'), but on the whole, the EP makes you want to drink whiskey and drive fast.

CD: Tragik - Poetic Justice
From: hair metal again Date: December 18, 2018 at 12:21
pretty good debut for TRAGIK ,in the classic Phil Vincent s way of songwriting and performing!nothing blowminding ,but it has its moments with songs like 'higher','back of my mind','caught in the moment' and 'jessica'!unfortunately there are some fillers and it could be much better with em off the album

CD: Jackyl - 25 Years 1992-2017
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: December 17, 2018 at 19:06
The festivities conclude with a cover of Black Oak Arkansas's 'Hot And Nasty,' originally from 1997, but touched up to remove Tom Bettini and Jimmy Stiff's parts. In the end, the disc is kinda like the appetizer sampler at a sports bar: greasy and fried, bad for you but oh so good, but yet in amongst the wings and the mozzarella sticks and the jalapeno poppers, you get broccoli bites or fried zucchini or something. You wonder why it's there, and ask if you couldn't just get tater skins instead.

This compilation is pretty spotty. You get most (but not all) of the early singles, but few of the fan-favorite deep cuts like 'Just Like A Devil.' They couldn't get clearnace to use 'Locked And Loaded,' and so replace it with two other songs from Cut The Crap (two of the better ones, but still inferior to 'Locked And Loaded'). And by the way, 'Dumb Ass Country Boy' hasn't held up well at all, with Jesse's oh-so-1997 gripes about sissy-rock and waning interest from radio. The selection of later songs is just as erratic, with no 'She's Not A Drug,' or 'All Night Rodeo,' but stinkers like 'Favorite Sin' and 'Just Because I'm Drunk,' plus the version of 'Just Like A Negro' with DMC to prove that some of jesse's best friends are black (Jesse all but pleaded for someone to be outraged by the original version, but no one who mattered was). Then we get yet another live version of 'Redneck Punk.'

CD: The Michael Schenker Group - One Night At Budokan
From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 15, 2018 at 19:40
First double live shot recording by the german axeman!!!...solid as a rock but it could have been better IMHO...tracks # 1,2,4,5,8(nice),9,11,12(UFO cover) & 13(best cut for me) are in my book of music.80/100

CD: KISS - Lick it Up
From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 15, 2018 at 19:35
A heavier album that the common releases of the band...saw them live on the Tour of this one with Helix as the opening act in Lisbon-Portugal.My fave tracks are 1,3(hit single),4,5,6 & 8...some comments above are not good at all towards it but in my case i think it's quite a decent record with good songs in it.85/100

CD: Ten Seconds Over Tokyo - Ten Seconds Over Tokyo
From: hair metal again Date: December 14, 2018 at 15:19
very good debut for TEN SECONDS OVER TOKYO with their sound being a mix of RIVERDOGS and PEARL JAM if you can imagine it!great vocals,excellent musicianship ,remarkable songwriting and overall a fine rocking vibe!'little man (my navigation)','going down' and 'next time' are my fav!grab it if you find it as its an interesting band

CD: Firmo - Rehab
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: December 13, 2018 at 17:00
well let's see....never heard of this band so we'll see what we got. After 1st listening I found my self saying Ohh I like that song..then Aww that's a great song...by the time I was done with the cd and counted up all my OH'S and AW'S, that was almost the whole cd!! The singer is from Italy but reminds me of Bon Jovi in his delivery and sound. The band as a whole sounds alot like a 'lighter' version of Bon Jovi if you will. some highlights are tracks 2,3,4,6,11,12 & 13. the whole cd is GREAT but those are my favorites. If you like Bon Jovi type music give this a try..I think you'll like them. I know I did.
