CD: Westpoint - Face to the Sea
From: yamaha94 Date: October 20, 2019 at 12:58
This is a very soulful AOR release. Smooth songs. Good listen! 85/100.

CD: Bullet - Highway Pirates
From: hair metal again Date: October 20, 2019 at 7:51
very good release once again by BULLET keeping it oldschool as it gets with anthemic rock n roll songs always with a heavy hard eedge!"highway pirates","stay wild","fire and dynamite","city lights" are great songs!excellent band indeed

CD: Circus of Power - Magic and Madness
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: October 18, 2019 at 19:19
The biggest thing holding this record back, to me, is the length. It has twelve songs, same as the last disc, yet it's fifteen minutes longer. On the first album, only one song (barely) breaks the four-minute mark. Here, almost half of the songs are over five minutes long, and three of those go beyond six minutes. Circus Of Power don't do epics, dammit! Other than that, I don't see a huge drop in quality, maybe because I'm not totally gone for the debut the way some are. This band has never had the catchiest songs, the best riffs or even the most charismatic singer. They just sorta "do what they do," and if you love that dirty biker-rock sound, there's plenty here to like. For this album, the band opened up for Alice In Chains, along with Masters Of Reality.

CD: Hardline - Double Eclipse
From: 123charpenay Date: October 17, 2019 at 17:02
i recommand the new reissue,remastered from bad reputation (french label)with 4 bonus tracks.the super japan bonus track and 3 tracks live with a perfect sound.thumbs up to bad reputation.

CD: Bullet - Full Pull
From: hair metal again Date: October 17, 2019 at 13:11
excellent band that BULLET with a clear oldschool feel in everything they do !their sound is between AC/DC and early JUDAS PRIEST with a great hard havy edge!"running away","rolling home","full pull","midnight oil" are fine songs ,but the rest of the stuff is also remarkable

CD: Zeno - Zenology
From: titothetitan Date: October 17, 2019 at 11:52
Compared to the debut the production is way better but the songs aren't as strong. Only tracks 1,2,3,4 caught my attention.

CD: Bullet - Heading For The Top
From: hair metal again Date: October 16, 2019 at 6:01
very good release for BULLET with their sound being somewhere between AC/DC and early JUDAS PRIEST and keeping the 80 s hard rock spirit alive !special mention to the lyrics that are totally 80 s as well !"turn it up loud","midnight riders" and "leather love" are the highlights!recommended

CD: Eclipse - Paradigm
From: Eric3 Date: October 14, 2019 at 21:30
Solid, but not spectacular. Musically it's the same old Martensson; there is absolutely nothing new under the sun here, especially concerning the riffs, lyrics and overall pace of the album. As one HH board member put it, "it sounds like he's marching to war again." It's been getting harder and harder for me to get into this band for several albums now, not like there's anything wrong with them but it's just not as instantly appealing as Bleed & Scream was. The music isn't worse -- just a little stale.

CD: 220 Volt - Young And Wild
From: dany69 Date: October 13, 2019 at 23:31
MASTERPIECE What a Great Band,,,,,

CD: Eclipse - Paradigm
From: MetalllianStallion Date: October 13, 2019 at 6:14
Is "Paradigm" the soundtrack for a new Braveheart sequel movie? I'm not digging the Celtic/folk/mandolin influences at all.The lyrics stress a rebellion (against the system/politics?) Paradigm means a cognitive framework shared by members of a group. With politics as a example, The left–right paradigm is a concept that societies have a tendency to divide themselves into ideological opposites. It's a controlled opposition created by the elite banking cartel. New face(president to blame),same agenda. "Politicians are put in office to give you the ILLUSION you have a choice, you don't" George Carlin. This band has been around now to close to 20 years and I think they are a talent, especially the production skills of Martensson and Henriksson for other bands. But as far as this release, I like a couple of songs but I'm definitely not blown away. When you have so many irons (side projects) in the fire, sometimes your motherboard band suffers.I expect more from this well oiled machine.

CD: Paul Gilbert - Silence Followed by a Deafening Roar
From: aTomiK Date: October 12, 2019 at 5:50
Great album! Paul at his instrumental best here, various styles but all so nicely executed you can´t help but enjoy it. I own almost all his solo stuff and this just might be the best of the bunch. Get it!

CD: Strangeways - Native Sons
From: titothetitan Date: October 11, 2019 at 18:22
A superior album than the first one (which was already damn good). Terry Brock definetly was the missing ingredient. Prodution is way better and all the songs are great. No fillers at all. A re-release edtion contains x4 live songs. I have a Dvd bootleg titled 'Live in Germany 1988'.

CD: Strangeways - Strangeways
From: titothetitan Date: October 11, 2019 at 18:18
Very good debut album by this great band even if the production is bad and the lead singer Tony Liddel is weak. However most the songs are catchy and with a lot of keyboards. Terry Brock joining the group for the follow-up albums was the missing ingredient. 88/100.

CD: Waysted - Save Your Prayers
From: hair metal again Date: October 11, 2019 at 12:28
very good release for WAYSTED back in 86 with an all star line up and imho Paul Chapmans guitar work stealing the show!typical mid 80s commercial US hard rock music with a certain quality ,but also not any big song and that s the reason for not having proper success!great production and a nice feel though !

CD: Jaded Heart - Perfect Insanity
From: hair metal again Date: October 10, 2019 at 5:56
very good release for JADED HEART ,that could be even better with a stronger commercial edge in some songs like the old days ,but....anyway the band seems in great condition ,very solid and offers a great heavy hard performance with many melodic hooks!"love is a killer","fly away","one life one death" are the standout songs!recommended

CD: Craaft - Second Honeymoon
From: yamaha94 Date: October 9, 2019 at 1:40
Fantastic from start to finish. We need to get one of these two albums on the top 100. These guys are criminally underrated!

CD: Craaft - Craaft (German)
From: yamaha94 Date: October 9, 2019 at 1:39
This is one of the greatest AOR albums of all time. This needs to be on the top 100 list. Every song is fantastic. The followup is just as good. You will like this one. It grew on me.

CD: Savatage - Gutter Ballet
From: Doug Date: October 8, 2019 at 23:15
This is currently listed as #77 on the Top 100 Rated CDs on HH. No way I have this on any Top 100. Some good riffs here and there, but the songs are all over the place.

CD: Gamma - The Best Of Gamma
From: Doug Date: October 7, 2019 at 23:06
I have this CD, it's great!

CD: Wild Boyz - Unleashed!
From: CC Date: October 7, 2019 at 20:22
I just re-purchased this CD all these years later due to the Demon Doll reissue. I do not regret trading in my original copy all those years ago as I found it for a couple of quid at a boot fair (totally random place to find something like this in England). The reason I bought it again is because Pleazure and pain is such a fucking killer tune. I don't wanna cry no more is also a cool tune as well. Listening to it all again all these years later, its actually better than I credited it all those years ago. Still not an amazing one, but certainly one worthy of sitting in my collection.

CD: Midnight Circus - Money Shot
From: hair metal again Date: October 7, 2019 at 18:00
very good release for MIDNIGHT CIRCUS with a clear 80 s commercial hard rock approach &sound ,remarkable musicianship & performance ,but the songs arent so big !it s pretty good and it will satisfy yoy ,but in the end of the day it will leave you seeking for a very good song!"psychedelic trippin","tonight" and "yours forever" are the standout songs

CD: Great White - Sail Away/Anaheim Live
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: October 7, 2019 at 16:12
I listened to this again over the weekend. Man! The only song that truly "rawks" is "Momma Don't Stop." "All Right" and "Livin' In The USA" somewhat uptempo, but are more like campfire toe-tappers. The lyrics range from sad to wistful to downright bitter in a few places. The part that stuck out for me is on "Alone," where Jack sings "I guess I realized I overstayed my day / I wonder as I write this down, how it's gonna sound when I get old." Pretty unflinching stuff for a band that just a few short years ago was extolling the merits of "Mistah Bone." But such was the world in 1994. You can't fault them for making the music that was in their hearts. They were getting older and maybe thinking about things besides the three People's. Not every Sunset Strip band would be able to pull off a record like this, so I give Great White credit.

CD: Foghat - Night Shift
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 7, 2019 at 3:25
Cool album by this legendary band...my favourites in here are # 1,2,4,6(good cover)& 7...enjoyable stuff...70/100.

CD: Robert Tepper - Better Than The Rest
From: dany69 Date: October 6, 2019 at 11:47
Just Awesome,What A Legend, !!!!!!! Angel of the City,!

CD: Danger Zone - Don't Count on Heroes
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 6, 2019 at 6:32
A very good release with catchy songs all over the way this act has shown us in its previous releases...tracks # 1,2,3,4( ),5,7,8(nice ),9,10 & 11(nice ) are going directly to my book of music...recommended stuff...87/100

CD: Robert Tepper - Better Than The Rest
From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 6, 2019 at 6:16
Delightful release for this great artist who found an "easy way out" to return to the AOR music fields.My fave cuts are # 1,2,3,5(nice),8 & 11...enjoyable stuff indeed...84/100

CD: Danger Danger - Screw It!
From: Doug Date: October 3, 2019 at 23:15
And "Yeah, You Want it," another silly song.

CD: Danger Danger - Screw It!
From: Doug Date: October 3, 2019 at 23:05
"Get Your S**t Together" and "D.N.F.S" are completely unnecessary songs. Dumb, but the rest is okay.

CD: Manitoba's Wild Kingdom - ...And You
From: hair metal again Date: October 3, 2019 at 12:54
very good debut for MANITOBA S WILD KINGDOM and i must say that when i bough it back in early 90 s didnt know about that strange mix of punk musos with Ross The Boss!!!great fun hard rock music with a NY punk feel here and there ,that really worked for me!all the songs rock and it flows from start to finish

CD: Bullet - Dust to Gold
From: hair metal again Date: October 2, 2019 at 8:53
excellent release for BULLET , performing some oldschool heavy metal music that strongly reminds me of ACCEPT !great guitars,extremely rough vocals and many good songs that offer the basics of the mid 80 s hard rock /metal scene!"fuel the fire","highway love","screams in the night" and "dust to gold" are songs that will make you sing along!great stuff

CD: Saints Of The Underground - Love The Sin, Hate The Sinner
From: dany69 Date: October 2, 2019 at 0:08
Damn great CD,,, just sad we don't have guy like jani Now,,,

CD: Danny Vaughn - The Road Less Travelled
From: hair metal again Date: October 1, 2019 at 7:32
Ok acoustic rock release for DANNY VAUGHN and his remarkable live band performing pretty good but the whole result isnt so strong ,as there arent any big moments that will hook you !unfortunately Danny has taken the mellow path in music and he creates a rather dark vibe that sometimes is too much!"lay your body down","jenny doesnt live here anymore" are the highlights! PS:sorry Danny but Traveller isnt your best album buddy

CD: Squares - Best of the Early '80s
From: edwithmj Date: September 30, 2019 at 18:48
This is Satriani's band before he went solo and even includes later Satriani stalwart Jeff Capitelli on drums. This is more than a mere novelty however: I did not expect this album to be this good. It's easy to tell that this is early Satriani and a lot of his style can be found on his later solo albums. Regarding the music itself, I like all the songs and can easily listen to the whole thing. The power pop style is definitely there and there are similarities with Cheap Trick and Enuff Z'Nuff. Favourites are So Used Up (very catchy), You Can Light The Way (very melodic), Follow That Heart (super vocals and guitar by Satriani) and I Love How You Love Me (super solo). If you're a fan of Satriani, you can't go wrong with this and you won't be disappointed.

CD: Bon Jovi - Bounce
From: titothetitan Date: September 30, 2019 at 17:28
I'm not a big fan of this band but this album I liked a lot. Very pleasant to hear it and lots of ballads. 'Misunderstood' is a killer and "Love Me Back to Life' is very catchy.

CD: Twisted Sister - The Best of the Atlantic Years
From: CC Date: September 29, 2019 at 22:02
Overall this is just another Twisted Sister compilation, but it does have a few benefits. Firstly, its cheap. Next the songs are all remastered versions. And lastly the exclusive cover of the Steppenwolf classic. Not a bad introduction to anyone unfamiliar with the band who wanna dip their toe into the water.

CD: Steel Panther - British Invasion
Heavy Harmonies Volunteer
From: whiplash1972 Date: September 28, 2019 at 19:56
There are indeed DVDs on the site; not a ton, but a few here and there.

CD: Steel Panther - British Invasion
From: CC Date: September 28, 2019 at 12:48
Eh? Are we now including DVDs on the site? I don't think there was ever a CD of this.

CD: Tesla - Shock
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 27, 2019 at 17:39
Interesting to note that the band (specifically Frank) acknowledges Shock as more of a collaboration between the band (mostly Brian Wheat) and Phil Collen, rather than a Tesla album, i.e. a band effort. Frank put it as about 80% Brian and Phil, further stating that he had little or no input on six songs. Even more telling, he said "I like about half of it." Not exactly a ringing endorsement of his own band's latest album, from a guy who's been a relentless cheerleader Tesla 2.0.

CD: La Marca - La Marca
From: titothetitan Date: September 27, 2019 at 17:06
Nice keyboards and a wonderful voice by Abe La Marca. My favourite song is the ballad 'You'. There are some fillers like 'Dear Diane' that sounds too popish for my taste. I do not own the original Lp but some kind of pirate release with two additional songs 'Hold on Blue Eyes' and 'Bad in Blue'. 80/100.

CD: Soto - Origami
From: hair metal again Date: September 26, 2019 at 15:40
ok release by S.O.T.O. with that updated modern sound ,but this time unfortunately songs arent so strong as in their previous one!there is a certain quality as in every Soto release and Jorge s performance is really shining in this one!"afterglow" is the highlight of Origami but after that cant find something more

CD: Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive II
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 26, 2019 at 1:59
With an obviously modern approach came this "Alive II" released 19 years after the first and respected classic live chapter of 1976.In here I'd go for tracks # 1,2,3,4,6,7(nice),8(nice),12,13 & 14.There is a limited edition of this album with a bonus disc that includes the historicals "Show Me The Way" & "Baby I Love Your Way" and two more cuts...Enjoyable stuff indeed.88/100 :-)

CD: Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive!
From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 26, 2019 at 1:44
This is undoubtedly one of the most respected live recordings in the history of contemporary music...Frampton simply at his very best :-) ...tracks #1,2,3(classic),5,7(classic),8,12 (Rolling Stones'cover) & 14 are the ones for me.85/100.

CD: Warrior Soul - Back on the Lash
From: hair metal again Date: September 25, 2019 at 13:13
excellent hard rock release for WARRIOR SOUL ,with Kory celebrating his rock n roll life n attitude with plain,raw in your face rock n roll and lyrics def personal!the result is explosive and for me is one of the best of the recent years!"i get fucked up","back on the lash","i ve got the rock" are fantastic songs indeed!wow

CD: Accept - Objection Overruled
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 24, 2019 at 18:08
If you weren't sure you liked where metal was headed in 1993, this was a breath of fresh air.

CD: Accept - Objection Overruled
From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 24, 2019 at 18:05
In the States, there used to be a weekly syndicated radio show called Metal Shop, that featured music, news and interviews. By 1993, the show had been around about ten years, and was maybe starting struggle a bit with how to adapt to the times. They never featured a band that wasn't heavy, but the sound of the music was changing. Yet they still clung to old favorites from the mid-'80's, and consequently, they were all over this reunion album by Accept, as well as Mercyful Fate's release from the same summer. Objection Overruled is a strong return to form after the outlier Eat The Heat. Songs like "Slaves to Metal," the title track, and especially "I Don't Wanna Be Like You" could have come straight from 1984. In fact, the latter song blatantly recreates the intro of "Balls to the Wall." So this is a throwback disc, but it succeeds by its sheer, hairy-chested heaviosity. In a way, Accept might be the purest example of what straight-up, undiluted heavy metal sounds like. If you weren't s

CD: Lee Aaron - Metal Queen
From: 123charpenay Date: September 24, 2019 at 17:35
very good record,well produced(the sound of the drums is absoluty perfect).the songs are catchy except track 5 with his very weak and ridiculous choruse.miss lee aaron have realy an extraordinary voice.what pleasur to listen her."bodyrock" stay her best album.

CD: FM - Tough it Out
From: titothetitan Date: September 24, 2019 at 13:36
I like their debut a lot so I was looking forward on this one but I must say I'm a bit disappointed due the overpolished production that somehow eclipsed the songs. I'll look for the demos and live footage.

CD: Soto - Divak
From: hair metal again Date: September 24, 2019 at 10:06
excellent album for S.O.T.O. indeed and somehow a big surprise for me as the previous one was just ok!What we have here is a solid moder hard rock sound ,dark but commercial at the same time ,fantastic musicianship&performance and really really fine songwriting!All the songs are remarkable and to me this one is among the best of the recent years when we talk for new sounds and approach!if you like it oldschool then there nothing for you here

CD: Shy - Misspent Youth
From: 123charpenay Date: September 23, 2019 at 17:35

CD: Twisted Sister - You Can't Stop Rock 'N' Roll
From: CC Date: September 21, 2019 at 0:20
This was my first ever album by Twisted Sister, and is still my favourite. It is interesting to see how the band has changed over the years. If you listen to the Club daze stuff that they recorded before their debut, they had a more 70s glam sound, and come UTB, they were more of a heavy metal band, verging on thrash before thrash really existed, and its no surprise that they had such a great relationship with Motorhead. This one though is a different beast. It really is a the bridge between the heavier debut album and the more arena based sound they adopted with Stay Hungry. I am (I'm me) is probably the forerunner for tunes like We're not gonna take it or I wanna rock, being an almost anthemic style song. Not a bad song on this one, and recently I just added the recent reissue with the bonus tracks listed above plus the bonus CD of the tunes recorded at the Marquee and were used as single b-sides. Well worth buying this album for the third time in my life

CD: Vice - 3 Fingers Up
From: CC Date: September 20, 2019 at 16:01
This is such a weird album. The songs, while not necessarly bad, are all over the place stylistically. While there are some very "Vice" sounding songs on this, there is a bunch of songs that stand out like a sore thumb as far as fitting in. The opening track Shitty Shituation is a more modern sounding song even bordering on the outskirts of being a rap song of sorts (think Limp Bizkit rather than NWA). Then there is Fuck U, which has a more punkish feel which kinda reminds me of Brides Of Destruction. The cover of I hate myself for loving you is pretty faithful to the Joan Jett original. And the remake of Made for pleasure from the debut album also has a more modern twist to it, albeit not as over the top as the previously mentioned songs. Overall like all Vice albums, its not an amazing album but it is decent.

CD: Shy - Excess All Areas
From: CC Date: September 18, 2019 at 22:07
Just listening to this again after the sad death today of Tony Mills, and came here to read some of the comments. One thing I noticed in one comment that the record company screwed these guys over with a lack of promotion, and while I do not disagree with that statement, I also blame the UK music press as well. Before I ever bought a Shy album (Misspent was the first one I picked up) I kinda avoided them because of Kerrang who had so called professional contributors in that rag call this band "Shyte". Well I can say the more apt terminology would be to call Kerrang by its true name, Kerrap. Shy should have had more success back in the day and Kerrap should have been the one to suffer. RIP Tony.

CD: Twisted Sister - Love Is for Suckers
From: CC Date: September 18, 2019 at 20:19
Yeah I know its a bit late replying to a comment from 17 years ago, but just read this "The cheesy 'Leader of the Pack' ended Twisted Sister's career" ... what absolute bullshit. Sounds like someone does not know their Twisted history since Leader of the pack was actually a song that goes way back to the very early days of Twisted Sister, and actually originally appeared on the Ruff Cutts EP that predates the debut album (and actually appeared on several CD versions of Under the blade). Simple fact is, by the time Come out and play came out, Twisted Sister were already starting to fragment as a band. AJ was out of the door soon after its release, and Snider was looking at doing a solo project. Also, the fact that MTV refused to play the first singles video (Be chrool) due to the "violent nature" of it did not help.

CD: Wheels Of Fire - Begin Again
From: 123charpenay Date: September 18, 2019 at 18:09
this band have some potential,it s obvious.their first records was very average ,here it s better....but not perfect.some super songs tracks 1.6.7.8.9 and 3 but the rest is not terrific.the two ballads track 5 and 10 are classics but destroy by the horrible voice of the singer.on the hard rock songs with the background vocals it s ok but on the ballads his voice looks like a little to the first hotwire singer.he sing like a duck.

CD: The Defiants - Zokusho
From: 123charpenay Date: September 18, 2019 at 17:45
their first cd have not impress me ,two or three super songs but the rest was average.here they have made lot of progress.this new realise is excellent.bruno ravel say that he prefer the work in studio than the live performance.i understand cause his work with paul laine on the production is exceptional.what sound!!!perfect.execpt track 11 a poor rock n roll song,this album is a top class a o r record in the vein of "revolve"(danger danger).this realise is varied cause track 10 is a beautiful song perfect for finish the record.track 6 is a hard rock song with a big influence of the new scandi a o r wawe like restless love.the japan import is absoluty essential cause the japan bonus track n° 12 "forever" is an atomic bomb.it s a beautiful atmospheric song without guitars ,with an exceptional choruse.paul laine on this song make a festival.he sing like a god ,like on the other songs.one of the best realise of 2019 with fortune,hardline,first night ,crazy lixx and whitesnake.

CD: Soto - Inside The Vertigo
From: hair metal again Date: September 18, 2019 at 9:44
pretty good release for S.O.T.O. in a new somehow direction heavier and more serious but cant get too far from the JSS territory either!the result is ok but not great with "wrath","trance" and "jealousy" being the standout songs

From: hair metal again Date: September 17, 2019 at 8:58
new acoustic solo album for DANNY VAUGHN showing his songwriting ability and his will to perform semi acoustic tunes,that imho was always there through his career!his voice isnt the best around ,but he manages to create a fine laid back vibe that really enjoyed !all the songs are remarkable and i m really excited catching live that show in a few weeks

CD: 91 Suite - Starting All Over
From: MetalllianStallion Date: September 16, 2019 at 4:46
After a 14 year hiatus the boys are back to give "VEGA" a run for the money as the current kings of edgy AOR (both bands occasionally straddling the MHR line). For a band with only two releases under their belt at 13 and 14 songs each, this is almost a mini LP for the them at 6 tracks. Don't get me wrong, something is better than nothing as all the songs are strong. Excluding a couple band members the original lineup is pretty much intact. The singer's voice has aged like a fine wine (Jesus Espínhe) as besides the old Victory singer Fernando Garcia, that's the only 2 Spaniards in my cd collection I can think of. Sit back and listen to the crystal clear production, as hopefully this is a teaser of a upcoming full LP release waiting in the wings. With so much mediocrity in the current AOR/MHR scene, it's nice to see a band that knows how to do it right, just pick up the pace a little.

From: Eric3 Date: September 13, 2019 at 21:55
Terrific follow-up to the already legendary debut. The songs are strong and the production powerful, yet there is a melancholic wistfulness here that will transport you back to the glory days of the '80s. That's the real triumph of this band!

CD: Jaded Heart - Sinister Mind
From: hair metal again Date: September 12, 2019 at 14:03
ok release for JADED HEART with a solid commercial heavy sound always with big melodic lines ,big choruses and much energy and electricity ,but unfortunately this time the songs arent too strong and in the end something is missing!"sinister mind" and "going under" are the highlights of their weakest till that time

CD: Rockett Love - Greetings from Rocketland
From: MetalllianStallion Date: September 11, 2019 at 5:30
These guys should have ditched the dumb "Dirty Penny"esque band name after their debut as they have taken a major step up in quality with their sophomore release. The singer goes back to the band "Twinball" (2002), Thin Lizzy meets Nickelback, (not bad). What was missing on their mediocre debut album is here in spades with this Glam/MHR release. Harmonies,hooks, & catchy songs/lyrics with minimum filler. Give credit to Swede magic man Erik Mårtensson doing the MIX and giving the album excellent overall production quality, especially on guitars and backing vocals. This one kept me coming back for repeated listens which is a rarity with new releases these days.

CD: Spread Eagle - Subway To The Stars
From: Wardy Date: September 7, 2019 at 10:19
Spread Eagle reforming always one of this fan's most wanted's (along with Saigon Kick), but after 25yrs and only half the band on board & sans songsmith guitarist extraordinaire DiBartolo there was some trepidation. But new sixstringer Ziv Shalev is quite the find bringing some authentic Spread Eagle sound & riffs to proceedings, street intact and straight outta the box the title track opens with a RayWest scream a new modern Spread Eagle favourite. Elsewhere the outta box riffs of their yesteryear show up in 29th February & More Wolf Than Lamb embraces the kick to the head not heard since their Broken City or Devils Road pieces. The lovely Gutter Rhymes For Valentines is another modern gem and personally woulda gone with Cut Through for lead single, cracking singalong chorus. No Fade Away or Faith but Solitaire concludes the album nicely... Sure it's no Debut SE or OpenTTPublic, but Subway is street enough, a confident & faithful SE album & a great example how to do a reunion \m/ 8.5

CD: Fozzy - Judas
From: Doug Date: September 6, 2019 at 22:46
Saw these guys last night in Denver, great show. Jericho may have his detractors because of his other job, but there is no denying he has a star quality vibe to him. IMO, their secret weapon though is bassist, Paul Dileo. The guy sings harmony vocals on virtually all songs, and is great. As they are doing these days, they led off with "Judas." Talk about a monster career-defining song!

CD: Straight Six - Full Circle
From: Doug Date: September 6, 2019 at 15:00
Saw these guys last night in Denver, opening for Fozzy. I had not heard of them before. Lead vocals are a little rough, not bad; overall this is a good straight forward rock and roll album.

CD: Gus G. - I Am The Fire
From: hair metal again Date: September 6, 2019 at 10:40
very good debut for Greek guitar player GUS G trying to keep his momentum after being the OZZY OSBOURNE guitar player!many guests mainly on vocals ,updated modern metal sound,fine songs and overall a decent release that will satisfy you ,but will not blow your mind!"my will be done","just cant let go","summer days" and "dreamkeeper" are the highlights!recommended

CD: 707 - The Bridge
From: hair metal again Date: September 5, 2019 at 9:03
very good release for 707 back in the early 80 s that finally got released recently !a fine classic rock vibe with the band achieving a natural almost live sound !"walking out","message from a friend" and "the waiting game" are the highlights for a band that was much under rated

good female fronted modern hard rock in the vein of agnes for example.the choruses are catchy and many songs of this record could be played easely on radio.but it s not really my cup of tea ,it sounds a little too modern for me.

CD: Enuff Z'Nuff - Clowns Lounge
From: headbanger4life Date: September 4, 2019 at 2:00
For demos, I actually like this one better than some of their past releases. Sound quality is what it is being as most of these are older demos. There are some classic sounding songs on here. They remind me of why I first started listening to EZN. It's nice to hear some songs with Derek on guitar. Loved his playing. Only spun it a couple of times but I'm enjoying it.

excellent release for HAREM SCAREM as usual back in 97 and somehow back then they were a major fresh act for us fans of the hard rock genre!the basics of their sound are offered again in a strong dose and there s a fine darker vibe also in some songs!"die off hard",'hail ,hail","rain" and "i wont be there" are the highlights of Believe!good stuff with great melodic lines

CD: Kix - Blow My Fuse
From: MelodicRocker Date: September 2, 2019 at 14:32
So finally in 2014 Rock Candy did the much requested remaster of this killer CD. IMO Tom Werman's production was stellar, I like his style much better than Beau Hill's, and it was not Werman's fault that the mastering was low in volume. Actually you can boost the volume with programmes like MP3 Doctor etc, since the mix itself is very good and I like this original mix better than the re-mix 30th anniversary by Hill (don't fix what's not broken). The sound is close to the mix of Poison's smash multi-platinum Open up and say...ahh, same year too. Maybe now Tom can remix Dynamite Anyway, any format, a killer rock & roll album where Donnie Purnell's songwriting (with some outside help) was at its very peak. Werman steered them to platinum success, what Beau Hill could not achieve, so Kix should be at least a bit grateful ya think. https://destroyerofharmony.com/2014/12/10/tom-werman/

CD: David Cassidy - David Cassidy
From: hair metal again Date: September 2, 2019 at 8:44
excellent fm rock release for DAVID CASSIDY trying to catch that commercial rock vibe with many guest musos and songwriters!the result is big with songs that could be global hits like "lyin to my self","all because of you","you remeber me" and "stranger in your heart"!essential

CD: Voodoo X - Vol.1 The Awakening
From: MelodicRocker Date: September 1, 2019 at 18:11
This 1989 CD (the gold cover artwork of course the coolest looking!) is the best collection of songs ever by Jean B & Tommy Lafferty. It has great songs (no filler imo), stellar performances and great Max Norman production (I'd like a little more bass though if being very picky). This album has a great feeling, a mix of pop/hardrock riffs and beautiful ballads. A very good melodic rock album. Max Norman struck gold with Ozzy and Megadeth, but he did some less selling albums, like this one "The Awakening", Dirty Looks (1988 gold was ok), Bangalore Choir and 220 Volt "Eye To Eye" that are just as amazing.

CD: Motley Crue - Shout At The Devil
From: MelodicRocker Date: September 1, 2019 at 16:25
https://destroyerofharmony.com/2014/12/10/tom-werman/ Tom Werman helped Crüe a whole lot. The perfect 80s BIG seller producer, and Shout sounds good even today, not overproduced like Feelgood - it's killer too of course, a hungry band feeling the breakthru 'round the corner. No real filler on this one, ultra-classic. A 22-year-old Vince who really ruled the strip and magazine covers for a few years. Nasal cocky screeching killer vocals. This is the Vince to be remembered. Flirting with pentagrams did not hurt attention either. Ten seconds to love describes Crüe touring in 80s quite well

CD: Kix - Rock Your Face Off
From: MelodicRocker Date: September 1, 2019 at 16:06
I really think they should have tried to get in a room with amazing songwriter and band founder Donnie Purnell after all. If not using Donnie live, his songs are dearly missed, they could have made a deal of songwriting. Face Off is good, but it is without a doubt missing the much sharper writing pen of Donnie's. This album imo is a 70 whereas Blow My Fuse was close to 100. 3 sides to every story, but Kix with a new bass guy are in fact making a living off the pen of Donnie, to some extent, so I don't like all the bashing. We don't know all the facts. Maybe someone ripped someone off when it comes to money. The usual story. Very sad.

Marcie is so good once again and especially on "Beneath a Steady Rain" which isn´t one of my favorites but damn i recognize a world class performance when i hear one, hats off! So, thanks guys for making 2019 a better year musicwise with this a bit more thinking man´s aor/melodic rock disc of yours. And you have a very good new lyricist there too.

If you want a BIG laugh go to the link below at Rolling Stone where a few years ago thee KIK TRACEE is listed in "The 50 Greatest Hair Metal Albums of All Time". Pompous Rolling Stone critics always hated hard rock/metal even going back to early Led Zepplein albums. These hard rock pretenders throw in a couple obscure independent label albums om their top 50 to show you they are experts of the 80's hard rock landscape. "Lord Tracy (NO RELATION to KIK) ‘Deaf Gods Of Babylon’ (1989)" WHO?. Many of the comments for each band, even when giving a complement,are backhanded. Back to the Bohemian Hippie Hairband Kik Tracee. It's a bad sign when an album starts with a cover "Cats in the Cradle". (Vol. 1) Handful of decent demo tracks, with a few new acoustic tracks. This band was lucky to get a major label deal in (1991) as they blended in much more than they stood out. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-lists/50-greatest-hair-metal-albums-of-all-time-162362/lita-ford-lita-1988-169509/

CD: Roxy Blue - Roxy Blue
From: MetalllianStallion Date: August 22, 2019 at 1:52
This band was on borrowed time with their debut in (1992) on the tail of the tail end of pre-grunge. Then after 21 years of silence until (2013) when the band released 3 albums simultaneously of old unreleased (so/so material. Now it's 27 years since their debut, and since this album is self titled does that mean the dreaded "rediscovered" our style applies? O yess (Don't Want Some) This all new material release has nothing in common with 80's MHR/Glam style, except the band name. I saw a review of Poole's vocals that sums its up."Ruff and gruff, raw and raspy, a mouthful of street cinders washed down by bottom shelf Kentucky bourbon." This is a heavy modern rock tinged album that is also bottom shelf IMO, and should have been released under a different band name.

CD: Helix - Old School
From: MetalllianStallion Date: August 22, 2019 at 1:03
After the surprise and one of Helix's best releases 5 years ago 'Bastard of the Blues' (2014), it's back to the same old crap. Brian Vollmer I assume controls the reigns of all things Helix as the band has some of the cheesiest album covers in their back catalog. The album cover for ROCK IT SCIENCE (2016) ( GET IT? ) looks like a Mexican space shuttle (Porta potty) blasting off (fecal mp3 fall out). It's a weak newer best of mix, as is the recent mystery master mix Icon (2018). This album is side B outtakes that didn't make the cut on old 80's albums (for a good reason). Vollmer pull your leather pants bootstraps back up and put some time and effort into a proper follow up to "Bastard of the blues", or sail off into the Great white north sunset and call it day.

Excellent hair metal release for LOVERBOY back in the early 90 s in a big company and i d day that their around is somewhere between WWIII ,JULIET and BATON ROUGE.some great rockers and ballads with extremely rough vocals of the highest range as well,wow."cryin out","right on track""lonely Manowar" are fine songs and the only thing missing is one of two more commercial tunes

CD: Balance - In For The Count
From: MysticHealer Date: August 13, 2019 at 15:02
The low ratings for this absolute bonafide classic are shocking. One of the greatest AOR melodic Rock albums in existance.

CD: Loverboy - Lovin' Every Minute of It
From: hair metal again Date: August 11, 2019 at 18:32
Excellent album once again for LOVERBOY with a slightly rockier around and this amazing songwriting ability!All the songs are destined to rule the airwaves and the band seems to be at their peak!Brilliant

CD: Aldo Nova - Twitch
From: petermexico13 Date: August 10, 2019 at 18:19
I Like this one, but in my opinión is a step back, He didn´t improve, he just went for the more AOR formula, prefer the style of his earlier Works. He visto para muchos que nombran este disco como el mejor trabajado y preferido de los 3 primeros de Aldo Nova, aquí suena mucho a Bon Jovi, no digo que eso sea malo, pero me parece más genérico, justo este salió 1 año antes que el Slippery When Wet, pero no siento que sea una evolución, sino yendo con la corriente y eso para un músico de este calibre considero que fue inducido por la disquera incluso más que en sus 2 trabajos anteriores. Disfrutable, bien hecho pero no me parece algo que defina a Aldo Nova.

CD: Riot - Live in Japan
From: hair metal again Date: August 10, 2019 at 9:25
Very good love release for RIOT in the very friendly land of Japan!songs selection mostly out of the 2 To my Moore s ones with a strong guitars driven around and the fans enjoying it!metal soldiers on stage

CD: Peter Frampton - Peter Frampton
From: petermexico13 Date: August 9, 2019 at 0:54
Great comeback with a superb álbum, Day in the Sun, You Can Be Sure, You, Out of the Blue (duet with Steve Marriot) and the best song of the álbum, an instant classic "Can´t Take that Away" what a song and the great solo blow your mind!! Un regreso impresionante de uno de los grandes guitarristas que ha dado el rock, Peter Frampton realizó un magnífico trabajo, acompañándose de artistas importantes como soporte en las composiciones. No te puedes perder la joya que es Can´t Take That Away. Un grandisco que pasó casi inadvertido allá por 1994.

CD: The Answer - Rise
From: gooup Date: August 9, 2019 at 0:24
People, it's BLUES ... and the Blues ain't about no hooks. This is superb stuff if you enjoy bluesy rock.

CD: Manzano - Turn Me On
From: hair metal again Date: August 8, 2019 at 13:41
Very good release for MANZANO with a certain commercial hard rock approach and WHITESNAKE being the major influence."fool for your love" and "body and soul" are excellent songs indeed.good stuff

CD: Queensryche - Q2K
From: hair metal again Date: August 8, 2019 at 13:35
Ok release for QUEENSRYCHE with out Chris s thrilling guitars and as expected one of their worst!Not and,but nothing special either with just 2 good songs like "falling down" and "the right wife of my mind"

CD: Motley Crue - Too Fast For Love
From: $$ixx Date: August 7, 2019 at 16:06
Just came in to say that the original first Leathür mix by a young Michael Wagener, that can be heard on remastered versions on the first disc of Music to crash your car to (bad title..), from 2003, is the very BEST MIX available! It was great just as it was!, with clear bass, up front vocals and crispier drums, esp the snare. RTB made the snare more 80s, definitely worse, but the band had no say. I love Wagener's mix. Raw but richer in dynamics too. All 10 tracks on the original 1981 Leathür release are cool. A great start for this band, young and very hungry style hardrock with pop elements. Thanks to the band for finally releasing this fine original Wagener mix on remastered CD format. The only thing that was better on the Elektra version, was the artwork that was enhanced with better pictures. Toast of the town and the cover song Tonight, are great bonus tracks. Stick to your guns (not essential but an ok song) was omitted from Elektra version due to copyright issues.

CD: Whitesnake - Flesh And Blood
From: Rob Rocker Date: August 6, 2019 at 18:58
I was very skeptical because I thought "Good to be Bad" and "Forevermore" were fantastic, and I still think Doug Aldrich was overall the best songwriting partner/guitarist for Coverdale/Whitesnake, but I'm pleasantly surprised with "Flesh & Blood". The production is really good, style wise it sounds like it could have been released between Slip of The Tongue and Coverdale/Page, but I actually think the songwriting on F&B is consistently much stronger than those 2 albums (and thankfully no Steve Vai "wankery"). For me this a "fun" Whitesnake album, and although I don't find Beach and Hoekstra nowhere near as compelling as Aldrich, I think the strength of the songs make up for the loss on lead guitar. Favorite's "Always & Forever" (which does sound like Slide it In era), "Hey You", "Flesh & Blood", and "Sands Of Time", overall no real throwaways, maybe"Get Up"?. Feels like a new Era for the band, and a worthy follow up to Good to be Bad and Forevermore.

CD: Bryan Adams - Bryan Adams
From: hair metal again Date: August 5, 2019 at 15:02
Superb debut for BRYAN ADAMS that captures the spirit of the early 80 s with elements of the AOR bands combined with pop music and even disco.All the songs are excellent and cant find any fillers."give me your love" and "try to see it my way" are my favs

CD: The Cross - Blue Rock
From: Ydol eM Date: August 5, 2019 at 9:10
THE CROSS is my most favourite side/solo project all former members of QUEEN have made. This last album is grounded with hard rock that sometimes launches blues or pomp rock. Not outstanding but if you don't mind a mix of ROBERT PLANT, MAGNUM and DEEP PURPLE (with Morse), you might try this (IMO). 75/100.

CD: REO Speedwagon - Live At Moondance Jam
From: bmoviecritic Date: August 5, 2019 at 3:36
Not the best set list, seems like the same one from a prior release. Kevin has a frail voice these days and this is the last release by the band as we know it.

CD: REO Speedwagon - Not So Silent Night
From: bmoviecritic Date: August 5, 2019 at 3:34
Fans need it for just the novelty. I'd never thought I'd see the day!

CD: REO Speedwagon - Find Your Own Way Home
From: bmoviecritic Date: August 5, 2019 at 3:33
FINE FORM. THIS CD HAS UPTEMPO, ROCKIN' ELEMENTS... No radio staples but hey, they are giving the fans what they want, a new CD, the best one since 1990!

CD: REO Speedwagon - Collections
From: bmoviecritic Date: August 5, 2019 at 3:32
Unnecessary release, only value would be as a cheap introduction to the band.
