CD: The Amorettes - White Hot Heat
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: August 10, 2020 at 17:33
This cd kicks major @#$!!! In the vein of Vixen. Vocals are great and the melody and tone of this album is excellent. If you haven't tried them...give me a shot!! In particular "let the neighbours call the cops" is KILLER! ROCK ON'!

CD: Ammotrack - Ammotrack
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: August 9, 2020 at 17:18
well well well..let's see what we got. MODERN Hard Rock in the vein of Disturbed, Hinder, etc.... If you like those bands give this a try. Favorites are: S.H.O.U.T., A Bigger Bang (killer track), You're Nothing But A lie & Hey Baby.

CD: Grand Prix - There For None To See
From: hair metal again Date: August 9, 2020 at 10:28
very good album for GRAND PRIX based on music written by Phil Lanzon and a fine voc performance by Robin Mc Auley offering straight rock pomp music with strong key lines!the songs are ok but not anything special even though the quality is there!good stuff,just not great

CD: World Trade - Euphoria
From: tentacle Date: August 7, 2020 at 21:12
@ 707 STAR So you decided to give it a rating of 1/100? And why do you have to shout? Are you angry? Do you think world is a better place after your outburst, does it help? I really hope so.

CD: American Noise - American Noise
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: August 7, 2020 at 20:05
Hey guys. I bought this computer from a friend and when I started using it I found a HUGE amount of bands/songs to try. He said "they are yours now". One of the bands/albums was THIS one. I have it on MP3's in 192kbps form. If anyone is interested let me know and I can send you the mp3 files for you to hear. Just thought I'd throw that out there. KEEP ROCKIN'!

CD: Warrant - Cherry Pie
From: Rockhunter666 Date: August 7, 2020 at 19:06
Warrant was the band took me into HR/HM world, it will be always one of my favorite bands. This album is well produced, great song written and over the top performance. Warrant is different since Jani gone. RIP Jani... your music is awesome!

CD: AlternativA - A Night in Starlight
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: August 7, 2020 at 1:09
ok..I HAD to try this band out (found them online on youtube). Listened to the whole cd. First let me say this is VERY LITE AOR. This is a band to listen to when you want to unwind and relax after a hard day's work. is it BAD? HARDLY..I actually found myself tapping my toes to most of it. The singer has a very good voice, there's melody and rhythm in EVERY song. If you are expecting a HIGH energy band to listen to do NOT let it be this one. You have to come in with an open mind. Give them a listen other then the intro tracks 2 thru 7 are pretty good.

CD: Tokyo Motor Fist - Lions
From: edukiki Date: August 6, 2020 at 21:01
I like so much Ted poley and Steve Brown, but I got to say this album is very loose, lacks punch, lacks strength, and it lacks good guitar riffs.he has plenty of mid tempos and ballads, I, ll wait much from this album, for my taste very laze

CD: Serpentine - Circle Of Knives
From: kinghanuk Date: August 6, 2020 at 15:54
A really good melodic hard rock/metal album and Adam Payne's voice fits the music very well. You can find brilliant melodic hooks in every song. Highly recommended.

CD: Mr. Big - Live
From: hair metal again Date: August 6, 2020 at 10:54
The mighty MR BIG in their peak offering an astonishing live performance!essential

CD: The Rods - Wild Dogs
From: hair metal again Date: August 3, 2020 at 17:25
very good release for THE RODS back in 82 with that street hard heavy sound that it s quite strong & electric !the songs are remarkable with some interesting hooks and even some melodic choruses like "burned by love" or "end of the line" but also some great rockers like "too hot to stop","no sweet talk honey"!highly recommended and a classic art work as well

CD: Rik Emmett - Ipso Facto
From: hair metal again Date: August 2, 2020 at 9:54
What an album! excellent release for RIK EMMETT , much better than his debut with many different music elements combined perfectly!the performance and the songwriting are of the highest level and all the songs are fine!essential

CD: Keel - Keel
From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 2, 2020 at 0:39
Cool album with some good shots in it such as tracks # 1,3(AORish),4(nice one),5,7(AORish),9 & 10...first record was into the heavy side of music but on the way of releases they got soften ...82/100

CD: Adler - Back From The Dead
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 31, 2020 at 21:21
I would describe this band as Modern Hard Rock. This band SMOKES!!! I mean JUST INCREDIBLE IMO. The first 7 songs are KILLER. I didnt care for track 8-9 BUT tracks 10 and 11 pick up where track 7 left off. Dead Wrong in particular is an awesome way to end this album. I am horrible at saying what bands sound like but to ME its a little Breaking Benjamin & Hinder with an attitude like Nickleback. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this cd to others who likes those bands. Keep it rockin'

CD: Lynch/Pilson - Wicked Underground
From: hair metal again Date: July 30, 2020 at 15:12
excellent release for those 2 great hard rockers and to be honest this much better than expected with George offering a solid performance and Jeff singing like in the WAR &PEACE!the songs are very good and especially "beast in the box","ever higher","the evil that you are" and "goodbye utopia"!nobody can do it like lynch and he still is among the best hard rock guitarists around!!essential

CD: Bulletboys - Elefante'
From: Doug Date: July 29, 2020 at 21:33
I kind of like this album, it's nowhere near the excellence of their debut, but it's not bad. "Kin Folk" is my favorite track.

CD: Tokyo Motor Fist - Lions
From: 123charpenay Date: July 29, 2020 at 18:37
the interview of the musicians are always the same.their last record is the better record of their life.ted poley says that on this record ,he sing the best songs he had never sang.hey ted ,stop smoking,you forget the three first extraordinary danger danger s albums.this record is great,exactly in the same vein of their brilliant debut.ted poley have always his superb voice,the sound and the production are mighty,clear and perfect.the songs are catchy and sound like a best of of danger danger but.....this record is not perfect like their first effort.there is some fillers.track 5 a keyboard s song too much long.track 6 a very poor hard rock song.track 9 where they try to clone toto.and track 12 the japan bonus track an acoustic version of "lions".an endless song without any interest except if you want sleep.

CD: Keel - The Final Frontier
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 29, 2020 at 4:51
A release that went smoothly with some good melodic Rock/AORish in it as well as Tough ones 👍 ... tracks # 1,2,3(nice cover),4,7( 🙂 )& 10( 🤘 ) are the ones for me...enjoyable stuff...86/100

CD: Keel - The Right to Rock
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 29, 2020 at 4:43
A step down if compared with the debut one IMHO 🤨 but still kicks some a**... tracks #6,7,8 & 9 are mine 👍 .83/100

CD: Tokyo Motor Fist - Tokyo Motor Fist
From: 123charpenay Date: July 28, 2020 at 18:01
this superb cd is a best of the three first danger danger s records.ted poley sing like in the glory days,big sound,big guitars,mighty and perfect production,the sound of the drums is a real pleasure,and all the songs are varied and catchy.my fave is track 8 "put me to shame" what extraordinary choruse.i recommand the japan import cause the bonus track is a new beautiful version of track 7 "don t let me go".

CD: Slaughter - Stick It To Ya
From: Doug Date: July 27, 2020 at 17:46
"Stixx," some great FYI's. I had no idea on a few of them, thanks. Easily my fave Slaughter album! And Laurie Ann, just wow.

CD: Adrenaline Rush - Soul Survivor
From: Doug Date: July 27, 2020 at 17:39
Reminds me of Lauren Harris, (the daughter of Steve Harris from Maiden). Some really good riffs, but the vocals are not very powerful.

CD: House of Lords - New World New Eyes
From: 123charpenay Date: July 27, 2020 at 10:53
back to the roots for house of lords with this very melodic record.but it s a deception cause they have lost their spark of class.most of the house of lords s records are grandiose,but here not,absoluty not.ok tracks 3/4/7/8/11 are some good songs but the rest is average.it s a second zone hol record.i can add that track 12 "you" the japan bonus track is a very bad song.

CD: Slaughter - Revolution
From: hair metal again Date: July 26, 2020 at 13:42
excellent release once again for the mighty SLAUGHTER slightly different in a few songs as they try to sound like glam rock bands of the 70s in a very succesful way with songs like "american pie" and some classic stuff either like "you re my everything"!great rockin groove,fine songs and a great release all the way of course

CD: High Spirits - Hard to Stop
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 26, 2020 at 4:06
Decent Hard Rock album but nothing to jump outta bed to be honest...just an acceptable one..."Voice In The Wind" is my fave,an AORish cut ...track # 7 is also another one i like...70/100

CD: Mark Spiro - 2 Plus 2 = 5 (Best of Rarities)
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 26, 2020 at 2:54
Wow this is a very pleasant compilation by Mark ....my fave tracks in here are # 3,4,6,8,9,10,11,13,16,17,19,26,28,30 & 34...a great AOR vocalist who deserves more recognition that ever...90/100

CD: Poison - Open Up and Say...Ahh!
From: Stixx Date: July 25, 2020 at 0:51
"Open Up and Say...Ahh!" is the best POISON album for sure, I like just about all songs on it. Great bonus tracks that should have been included are "Livin' For The Minute" and "Gotta Face The Hangman" (first on "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" CD-single, both real fine rockers! The Capitol 2006 remaster sounds stellar, finally volume is up, but the mix and production by Tom Werman was always top notch! This 5 x platinum success album had four solid singles and these plus another four, totally 8 songs, are all included on the awesome "Double Dose: Ultimate Hits" compilation. I always loved the sound of CC's guitars and Rikki's drums on this album btw, so using the "Mötley Crüe success producer" really paid off!

CD: Danger Danger - Screw It!
From: Stixx Date: July 25, 2020 at 0:22
This album has live drumming (s/t was programmed I read Ted mention) with awesome sound too, great mix by Erwin Musper. Just What The Dr. Ordered is one killer bonus track, should have been included on all versions, a great feel-good rocker! Yes, includes a couple of real fillers in the end, but still 11-12 fine songs before that. Beat the Bullet is one of the best songs they ever wrote, should have been a single!

CD: American Bombshell - Tattooed n Bruised
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 24, 2020 at 20:35
ok guys..i'm FLOORED!! NOONE has rated or commented on this awesome release. These guys really know how to rock. They remind me of a cross between poison and Jackyl. You HAVE to try this band! Songs to check out: Faster, Joyride (GREAT BALLAD), Money On The Liquor, raising hell & living sin and Stupid=Famous

CD: Slaughter - Fear No Evil
From: Stixx Date: July 24, 2020 at 19:20
Fear No Evil was recorded in 1994 while the band was still signed to Chrysalis. The delay of its release might have hurt some, even that grunge had already taken over the charts and sales. CMC only financed one music video, and the lack of promotion did not help either. Nevertheless, Fear No Evil is one damn good album! No fillers this time, and some mean riffs by Kelly on Hard Times and Outta My Head not the least. Can solid pure rock & roll with energy and swing get much better than the duo of Get Used To It and Let The Good Times Roll? Those are so cool and rockin', really get you pumped! Love this disc!

CD: Slaughter - Stick It To Ya
From: Stixx Date: July 24, 2020 at 19:08
While Vinnie Vincent Invasion had some killer songs, and no less than three nice ballads on the 1988 disc All Systems Go, that band lacked the swagger and bluesy guitar style of the great Tim Kelly (RIP). Stick it to ya has many really good songs, a few fillers do not hurt the overall result really, so I give it 95. A very nice sound with Dana's full and rich bass sound that helps drive the songs. Drummer Blas Elias was added as a member before the release in '90, but all the drum tracks on this album were programmed in '89 by Chris Ryan at KAT Electronic drums (so Blas is not on this album at all). Of course he still is a stellar drummer. Tim was truly a great guitar player, played for the songs, improved the songs with great riffs and tasty solos and a warm bluesy feel that many of us love. 4 great singles/videos were released. Btw, Laurie Ann Carr, who was married at the time to Ratt's tall & handsome Robbin Crosby (also RIP), was featured as the model on Stick It To Ya's album cove

CD: Lee Aaron - Bodyrock
From: $$ixx Date: July 24, 2020 at 18:26
Yes, in 88 and esp. 89, lots of recordings feature programmed drums instead of live drums (e.g. Slaughter's debut that was recorded in 89, Danger Danger s/t and Talisman), but the drums on Bodyrock still sound killer! Some of the best programming sound you can get, I love it. Huge drums, actually rather similar to Bob Rock's preferred sound at the time, the guitars are crunchy and in your face, sweet smooth solid vocals, Lee and Albani made a great duo! Many great songs, good sound, few fillers, this might be her best, but all are very good. Lee Aaron is one of those artists that "should have sold more, deserved more success". Could have easily released more singles and (MTV) videos from this album, e.g. Gotta Thing For You and How Deep. Fantastic album.

CD: Crossroads - The Wild One
From: hair metal again Date: July 24, 2020 at 13:17
excellent hard rock release from CROSSROADS a band that is criminally underrated as they have offered us 3 gems but never had the praise of the fans!their debut is explosive with strong vocals ,sensational guitar work and songs like "what i am","fire in heartland",'voodoo" and "the wishing well"!essential

CD: KK Wilde - Rock N Roll
From: hair metal again Date: July 23, 2020 at 12:55
excellent hair metal indie for KK WILDE that needs 1 or 2 spins to get into it as it has many hooks almost in every note and it requires a lot of attention!ays commercial and rockin this is a killer indie with sensational guitar work and great ballads and anthemic rockers as well!highly recommended

CD: American Dog - Poison Smile
From: Tollitiger Date: July 22, 2020 at 22:29
The Kings of Redneck Metal,Poison Smile is one hell of Album

CD: Shanghai'd Guts - Out Of Tune
From: Tollitiger Date: July 22, 2020 at 22:24
Great Album,the Songs St.Pauli Girl, Memories and Can't Light my Fire are Masterpieces

CD: Hardcore Superstar - Dreamin' In a Casket
From: Tollitiger Date: July 22, 2020 at 16:50
Awesome Stuff,this Album Kicks Ass

CD: Hardcore Superstar - You Cant Kill My Rock 'N Roll
From: Tollitiger Date: July 22, 2020 at 16:46
A Masterpiece from the Superstars,every Track is a Hit

CD: Alter Bridge - The Last Hero
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 21, 2020 at 20:05
OK Alter Bridge...now THIS is more like it. Not as good as their First and Third album but MUCH MUCH better then the last one. Love the singer...excellent songs...favorites are: Losing Patience, My Champion, Poison In Your Veins, You Will Be Remembered (incredible track). Highly Recommend.

CD: Alter Bridge - AB III
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 21, 2020 at 19:18
Just as good as the First Album. Great songs..great singer...very enjoyable. Check out Tracks: Ghosts Of Days Gone By, All Hope Is Gone, Wonderful Life (AWESOME TRACK), I Know It Hurts & Life Must Go On.

CD: Alter Bridge - Fortress
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 21, 2020 at 19:06
Not as good as their previous album (A.B. III). favorite tracks are Cry Of Achilles, Lover, Peace Is Broken & All Ends Well (GREAT TRACK) Check em out.

CD: Lovex - Divine Insanity
From: Ydol eM Date: July 21, 2020 at 16:57
Listening to LOVEX is like eating an apple. Under the polished "wannabe glam" skin there is flesh that should have tasted as another Finnish star products HIM or THE RASMUS. Well, it's not the same taste, actually I enjoyed LOVEX more. However, despite all this written, finally you find the core and you realize that this is not more than relatively simple but well-produced melodic heavy rock on similar base as eg HAREM SCAREM or EMERALD RAIN (IMO). There's a proverb in Irish that says: "So many people, so many minds". In my country, there's an equivalent: "So many people, so many tastes". Just try this album and you may find other different flavours. 80/100.

CD: TKO - In Your Face
From: hair metal again Date: July 21, 2020 at 12:16
excellent debut for TKO with Brad Sinsel s rough vocals being the mane attraction along with that n your face way of writing anthemic songs of the early 8 0 s !i agree that the production isnt the best and maybe a really big song could push things further for them,but anyway that gem still rocks

CD: Benny Mardones - Benny Mardones
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 19, 2020 at 0:44
Listening to this one good release..."I'll Be Good to You" is my fave song in here,a nice softie ...tracks # 1,3,4(classic),5,9 & 10 are also pleasant cuts..rest in peace master,you will be always remembered.88/100

CD: Michael Bolton - The One Thing
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 19, 2020 at 0:04
A nice soft Rock album by one of the best vocalist ever ..."Never Get Enough Of Your Love" is my all time fave in here...tracks # 3,4,5,7 & 8 are also in my book of music...enjoyable stuff...87/100

CD: Ambrosia - Road Island
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 18, 2020 at 23:55
Cool album ..."Kid No More" is my fave track and the best cut of the release IMHO...some other fine moments are # tracks # 5,6 & 7...82/100

CD: Tokyo Motor Fist - Lions
From: the rocker Date: July 18, 2020 at 21:27
Fantastic album! Tracks 1-4 are top notch (rating 9 or 10)tracks 7,8,and 11(ratings 8 or 9). Ted sounds great, Steve's playing is fantastic, the background vocals are SO good on those catchy sing along chorus'. This is a must have and a top 2 album so far this year!

CD: Grand Design - V
From: 123charpenay Date: July 18, 2020 at 16:00
no doubt this band is the best scandinavian band of the moment.they are like white widdow an extraordinary band ,unable to wtrite an average or a bad song.all their songs ,album after album, are killer songs with a delicious def leppard influence.you can buy all their records ,closed eyes,all are simply fantastics.all are a wet dream for fans of hard f m.this new record is exceptional like their others realises.one word buy buy buy.i recommand the japan import cause the jap bonus track is at the same (very high level)than the rest.

CD: Love Affair - Love Affair
From: hair metal again Date: July 16, 2020 at 19:48
very good debut for LOVE AFFAIR capturing that classic US early 80 s sound !remarkable songwriting ,satisfying musicianship &performance with the choruses being the most important thing and less the solosor the jams!"mama sez","magic man ","touch me" and "going down" are fine songs indeed!good stuff

CD: Danger - Keep Out
From: Rockhunter666 Date: July 15, 2020 at 22:04
I don't understand why this one rated so low here. It's full of great melodic metal here, not very good produce, but very good musically. 8 out of 10.

CD: Alien - Eternity
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 15, 2020 at 19:43
What 9 YEARS can make a difference huh?!! 2005 when Dark Eyes came out almost EVERYONE blasted that cd saying the band is "done".."was my final last straw" etc... were the masses saying about it. Those SAME people are NOW saying 9 years later "the band is back"..."best one since the 1st one"..etc..LOL I actually like some of Dark Eyes but YES this cd is much better. I love Jim's voice. Him and Jimi Jamison are 2 of my favorite singers. Favorite tracks are 1,2,3,4,5,6.7.10.14

CD: Bloody Heels - Through Mystery
From: CC Date: July 15, 2020 at 18:48
Not gonna lie, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this album. It is full of well recorded classic rock music. Only downside is once it finished, I could not remember a single song.

CD: Def Leppard - London to Vegas
From: CC Date: July 15, 2020 at 15:24
Ooh, another Def Leppard live album ... just what everyone needed.

CD: Tokyo Motor Fist - Lions
From: Zacki Date: July 15, 2020 at 12:29
in my opinion the best melodic rock cd in 2020 so far 100/100

CD: Gary Schutt - Playthings
From: hair metal again Date: July 15, 2020 at 11:46
very good release by the talented GARY SCHUTT and it really makes you wonder how this guy never got in a real band as his abilities in performing and songriting are obvious!fine songs of different style from rockers to ballads and overall a solid release with "this might be the last time","sometimes in a dream","traumatized" and "animal man " being the highlights

CD: Ted Poley - Greatest Hits Vol. 2
From: juan carlos Date: July 14, 2020 at 2:32
Very Good setlist Ted! I like most of the songs here. I own almost all the Ted stuff including this one. Good job Ted! 85/100

CD: Poison - Swallow This Live
From: dany69 Date: July 13, 2020 at 21:21
Only Poison Can Put So much Energy Like This,,, Amazing

CD: Alias - Alias
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 13, 2020 at 18:54
Ok I Tried it..honest I Did but I've found there is NO POSSIBLE way to listen to "More Than Words Can Say" and "One More Chance" WITHOUT singing along...MAN WHAT KILLER songs. Love those tracks and the rest is incredible in its own right. Keep on rockin'

CD: Electric Mob - Discharge
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 13, 2020 at 3:41
A very cool hard rocking album with an 80's vibe in the songs...awesome vocalist who provides that feeling ...tracks # 2,3,7,8,9 & 10 are the one that go to my book of music.85/100

CD: Dennis DeYoung - 26 East Vol 1
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 13, 2020 at 3:16
Very good album by the eternal voice of Styx no matter what ...my fave cuts are "Unbroken","The Promise Of This Land" & "To The Good Old Days" but some other pleasant moments are # 1,2,3 & 4(nice)...enjoyable stuff indeed...87/100

CD: Room Experience - Another Time and Place
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 13, 2020 at 2:44
Pleasant album with some good tracks in it...the ones for me are # 1,3,4,5(nice),8,9,10 & 12(nice)...enjoyable new act with that new and kinda typical nowadays sound.83/100

CD: Smackbound - 20/20
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 12, 2020 at 19:13
A good modern rock band with a female vocalist...it sounds like a newer version of,may i say,Evanescence...tracks # 6,7 & 8 are the ones for me.80/100

CD: House of Lords - New World New Eyes
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 12, 2020 at 18:30
Decent album with some good songs in it such as tracks # 3,4(nice),5,6,9,10 & 11...a band that,like some other 80's iconic ones,are persisting through the times.83/100

CD: FM - Synchronized
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 12, 2020 at 18:08
A decent album and the sound just like the same...the band is still impeccable but somehow quite repetitive...my fave cuts are # 7,8,10 & 12...some other acceptable moments are # 1,4(nice),5 & 6...82/100

CD: Queen - Hot Space
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 12, 2020 at 17:15
A Pop album with even some disco feeling in certain parts...not a bad release but different,you have to be open minded to understanding it...my fave tracks are # 1,3,9(nice),10 & 11(the best cut undoubtebly).60/100

CD: Room Experience - Another Time and Place
From: Pee Dee Date: July 12, 2020 at 11:18
Room Experience taken to the next level. Ultra-melodic, massive choruses, killer guitar riffs, and a sparkling production. This one is a major contender on the AOR scene this year. I felt the debut was a bit of a grower, but this is an instant grabber. Just check out the magnificent 'Hear Another Song', 'Wild Heart', and the uptempo 'Shout'. A truly great album for AOR fans. Not for the metal and hard rock crowd, but for us AORsters, this is the bomb. Congrats to Gianluca, Zorro, Dave and the gang.

CD: KISS - Revenge
From: $$ixx Date: July 11, 2020 at 16:44
As much as Singer is a good drummer, it would have been so cool if Carr got better and performed on this great collection of songs. Finally after 10 years of 50% paychecks, but really poor songs by Simmons, he started to focus once more. Gary Corbett said he finally left the Kiss touring band after the initial Revenge run, since he had a hard time accepting the heartless treatment that the deadly sick Eric Carr received from Paul+Gene, before he died. And Gary was close with the band, so I am sure he knows. (It's also mentioned in the amazing book by Carl Linnaeus). Instead of time and support by his hospital bed, P+G handed Carr a resignation contract. Bruce knows too, money always came first. Therefore it is surprising that Gene got as much as Paul during the 80s. Paul, the real musician and singer in Kiss, sang very well for 2 decades, with Revenge being the last killer album they ever did. Bruce plays fantastic here. On YouTube the "Eric Carr - Tale Of The Fox" is recommended.

CD: Turbo Red - Turbo Red
From: Rockhunter666 Date: July 11, 2020 at 16:16
Fantastic album! It’s little bit strange that this band have both male and female singer, but hey, I promise you if you like aor you will falling in love with Turbo Red! 96/100

CD: Vandamne - Renaissance
From: hair metal again Date: July 10, 2020 at 11:25
very good release for VANDAMNE with a heavy sound but always with melodic lines and some very fine hooks especially in their acoustic parts!not as good as their explosive debut ,as they have a total different line up but still good stuff with songs like "edge of heaven","lock me away" and "world of changes"

CD: Human Race - Dirt Eater
From: Ydol eM Date: July 9, 2020 at 14:30
Sharp-edged hard'n'heavy or a typical "Millenium" product. It means, if you like bands like PRETTY MAIDS, PINK CREAM 69, or some projects with J.S.Soto at that time being, you might also like this album despite the lower quality of everything, in comparison with the groups mentioned above. All in all, they put in some good work but without any additional value (... ok, the bonus track went with a bang...). 65/100.

CD: Kansas - The Absence of Presence
From: juan carlos Date: July 9, 2020 at 0:15
I'm not a fan of ProgRock so this is not my cup of tea. Excellent production, some nice moments/melodies like "Circus of Illusion". Progressive/Kansas fans could easily enjoy more on this one. 80/100

CD: Paul Laine - Stick It In Your Ear
From: 123charpenay Date: July 8, 2020 at 17:39
when bon jovi meets bryan adams.super record.

CD: Roxy Blue - Roxy Blue
From: CC Date: July 8, 2020 at 14:45
Releasing this as a Roxy Blue album is like me claiming one of my turds is a gourmet meal, just because what made it once was. I get that peoples voices change somewhat with age, but this sounds as much like Roxy Blue as Metallica sounds like Billy Idol. This turgid mess should never have been released under this name.

CD: Ambrosia - Life Beyond L.A.
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 8, 2020 at 4:01
One of the best releases of the band 🙂 ...tracks # 1,5(nice),9 & 10 are awesome ones...enjoyable stuff in here 👍.84/100

CD: Ambrosia - Ambrosia
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 8, 2020 at 3:57
A Pomp AOR debut...a band that nowadays can be easily considerated d as a "cult" one... tracks # 3(nice),4( 🙂 ),7 & 9(nice) are the ones on my list.82/100

CD: Ambrosia - Somewhere I've Never Travelled
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 8, 2020 at 3:51

CD: Ambrosia - One Eighty
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 8, 2020 at 3:47
An edgy Westcoast Lite AOR in here 👍 ...a pretty acceptable release... tracks # 4(nice smooth),5,7,8 & 9(nice smooth)are the ones for sure i take in my bag of music.78/100

CD: Midnight Flyer - Midnight Flyer
From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 8, 2020 at 3:43
Female fronted band that reminds me of Mother's Finest,Chettah or Headpins 🙂 ...tracks # 1,5,6,8,9,10 & 11(solid soft)are the ones for me.75/100

CD: Khymera - Master Of Illusions
From: 123charpenay Date: July 7, 2020 at 17:28
hey rafo now it s a german band.come on manschaft!!!!a new superb realise from this extraordinary project.it s a top class hard f m record with no fillers,only killer songs.a wet dream for all hard f m lovers.one bonus track on the japan import.it s a different version of track 8.like for wildsouls and pulse.:buy buy buy!!!!

CD: Pulse - Chasing Shadows
From: 123charpenay Date: July 7, 2020 at 17:24
third effort from this top class english aor band.ok we have three fillers tracks 2 average song with a muddy production,track 6 average acoustic song and track 10 where the choruse is a nightmare.the other songs are perfect aor in the vein of their two brilliant first records.like for wildsouls their records are very hard to find but you have to try and buy closed eyes.

CD: Diving for Pearls - Diving for Pearls
From: tomdwa Date: July 7, 2020 at 12:04
As stated by others above, I also think this is not the 'gem' that some hear in it. Almost all the songs sound alike, the cd has a very generic feel. But You're all I know is indeed a very good track, very well executed.

CD: Night Ranger - Dawn Patrol
From: dany69 Date: July 6, 2020 at 20:20
Congratulation HH for this new Work on your Channel,,That Is Amazing,,Rock On !!!

CD: Benjamin Orr - The Lace
From: tomdwa Date: July 6, 2020 at 20:06
Nice and relaxed album, very well produced too. But not a classic, by no means. Stay the night is the obvious winner here, what a great track, and the album closing song This time around is beautiful too.

CD: Gotthard - 13
From: 123charpenay Date: July 6, 2020 at 18:05
decent and solid record.not more.this time the production is better but the songs are average.they have lost their inspiration.the best song is track 5 "s o s".a beautiful and very catchy ballad,class......but the rest hum.....

CD: Wild Souls - Queen Of My Heart
From: 123charpenay Date: July 6, 2020 at 17:58
totally agree with juan carlos.the wildsouls s records are very hard to find but you can try cause you ll have some very good surprise.their 3 records are really excellent.on this new record we have two fillers tracks 6 and 11.but the other songs wow class hard rock with keyboards sometimes.i love this greek band.trust me buy buy buy,you ll not disapointed.

CD: Ron Keel - Metal Cowboy
From: hair metal again Date: July 6, 2020 at 12:33
very good solo project for RON KEEL with his fine guest musos offering a nice hard rocking sound with a strong southern feel as you expect!the songs are ok without being spectacular and overall an enjoyable release!"my bad","just like tennessee" are the highlights

CD: Paralydium - Worlds Beyond
From: juan carlos Date: July 6, 2020 at 6:01
Good Melodic ProgRock no more no less. Good production, i prefer melodic riffs/guitar solos, so "Into Divinity" & "Crystal Of Infinity" are my faves. 7 songs 'cos 2 tracks are instrumental. 80/100

CD: Benny Mardones - Benny Mardones
From: tomdwa Date: July 5, 2020 at 19:03
The production quality is awesome on this one, but to my ears the songwriting isn't on par. The disc is decent enough, but there are no classics on it (apart from the remake of Into the night). The ballad How could you love me is excellent though.

CD: Los Angeles - Neverland
From: juan carlos Date: July 5, 2020 at 16:38
Enjoyable album indeed! Many catchy songs, hard to pick my favorite track 'cos the whole album is perfect to my ears. Catchy solos, melodies here & there, good production.. Great Melodic Rock. Highly Recommended! 90/100

CD: Bite the Bullet - Bite the Bullet
From: tomdwa Date: July 4, 2020 at 19:48
Indeed, this is a nice surprise! Especially the first half of the cd is splendid, tracks 1-4 and 6 are very, very good. After that, the quality drops a bit, but the songs are still enjoyable enough.

CD: Little Angels - Young Gods
From: hair metal again Date: July 4, 2020 at 15:32
very good album for LITTLE ANGELS even though is my last fav of them mostly because of that overdose of horns,piano and all such staff that they tried to add in their music,as i preferred their previous sound!of course they re very good musos and they can write down big songs like "boneyard" and "aint gonna cry" and i really dig the guitar solos as well!good stuff

CD: Age of Reflection - A New Dawn
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 3, 2020 at 18:16
NO REVIEWS HUH?!! That is doing this Cd a dis-service. This cd will grab you from the 1st song and take you along a melodic BLISS til the end. Its very RARE for me to love ALL the songs on a cd but this one does. If you haven't heard them before or tried them check them out. You may be like ME thinking WHERE has this band been all my life?!

CD: Bitter Harvest - Beginning of the End
From: Japangea Date: July 3, 2020 at 6:24
This singer sounds very Ian Astbury from the Cult and musically this band is close to the Cult as well overall. Very nice release and this excellent cover says it all.

CD: The Outfield - Diamond Days
From: tomdwa Date: July 2, 2020 at 19:30
The first and the last song of the cd are great, what is in between those two is pretty forgettable I'm afraid.

CD: After Hours - Take Off
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 2, 2020 at 17:08
awesome CD! I just listened to "Stay By My Side"..what a set of GOLDEN PIPES does John Francis have. Gives me chills. You have to stand up and take notice to whatever you are doing while listening to this Cd. Grabs your attention. Awesome band...keep it up and keep rockin' John Francis!

CD: Affair - Face to Face
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: July 2, 2020 at 14:59
I'm surprised!! I agree with ALL the comments. It's a GREAT Cd to listen to but I'm shocked NO ONE mentioned the KILLER ballad "Day By Day". That song stays with me for weeks in my head..the melodic rock Aor feel is just incredible that song alone to ME is worth the price. Rock On!

CD: Warrant - Dog Eat Dog
From: hair metal again Date: July 2, 2020 at 12:13
3rd masterpiece in a row from the mighty WARRANT back in 92!killer from start to finish this is outstanding commercial hard rock music with Jani showing one again his flawless songwriting ability!Michael Wagener produces in a divine way and the result is huge!the guitar work is excellent and the sound of those drums excellent!cant find something missing and spinning my vinyl again after so many years brings back great memories!essential

CD: Horsehead - Horsehead
From: Leykis101 Date: July 2, 2020 at 8:41
Pretty decent rock disc I just discovered, I mean nothing even remotely original, or mindblowing, but a pretty overall decent hard rock disc, that should have been at the least, more well known, probably the year it came out, I recommend you at least check it out.

CD: The Outfield - Play Deep
From: tomdwa Date: July 1, 2020 at 15:10
The hit single Your love is a no-brainer here, fantastic tune that you will hum all day once you heard it. Taking my chances is another favorite.

CD: The City - Foundation
From: hair metal again Date: July 1, 2020 at 11:04
pretty good release for THE CITY back in 86 that had its moments but unfortunately cant find any big songs that could make an impact!soft pop rock music ,radio friendly with a fine musicianship and some good songs like "parallel lines","aim for the heat" but that s it and that s why they didnt go any further

CD: AdrianGale - Reprogram
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: June 30, 2020 at 19:23
For those who don't like this cd...they need to listen to "Closer" and "put the paddles on their chest..charging...CLEAR"!!! You need to wake up from your coma. That song will stay in your head for weeks. keep rockin'!

CD: Fist - Reign Of Terror
From: Rockhunter666 Date: June 30, 2020 at 17:09
The tittle song's solo reminds me of ZZ Top.

CD: Chris Antblad - A New Dawn
From: tomdwa Date: June 30, 2020 at 12:43
Just marginally better than his first solo cd, ...but only marginally. The songs overall lack 'bite', and are way too mellow and uninteresting. Pity really, 'cos the guy has a special voice.

CD: Chris Antblad - Century
From: tomdwa Date: June 30, 2020 at 11:54
This is average, at best. The quality of the songwriting is very discrete, nothing stands out. All the songs are very harmless. A huge difference compared to the excellent first Spin Gallery cd that contains some brilliant songs.

CD: The Arrows - The Lines Are Open
From: tomdwa Date: June 29, 2020 at 19:36
This has a far better production quality than their first cd, and it pays off. Heart of the city is a solid opener in the vein of Honeymoon Suite, making way for one of the best melodic rock tracks ever: Bad reputation! A lost jewel... Tell it to my heart and Wild one are 2 further very good songs.

CD: The Arrows - Stand Back
From: tomdwa Date: June 29, 2020 at 19:29
Indeed an almost classic, if it wasn't for the shabby production quality. But the songs are there, from the sparkling Say it isn't true to the smooth Never be another one, the hi-tech but highly melodic Stand back, the uplifting Enough is never enough, the enticing I owe you, to the very well crafted closing track Easy street.

CD: Blonde on Blonde - Labyrinth of Love
From: hair metal again Date: June 29, 2020 at 18:08
very good release for BLONDE ON BLONDE with a clear commercial approach and some great vocals in it as well!the songs are remarkable without being blowminding and overall this is a solid performance that will satisfy almost everybody!good stuff and especially "show your love","miss you","shine on"!

CD: XIX Years - Never Fall Again
From: tomdwa Date: June 27, 2020 at 19:15
Great debut EP that shows quite some promise for the future. Smooth yet catchy melodic rock, very well played and with a good raspy lead vocalist. The two first songs are top of the heap.

CD: TOBB - True to Our Sound
From: tomdwa Date: June 27, 2020 at 19:05
This is truly great, very classy melodic rock with influences of other genres, and very adventurous. Just listen to opener Black Clad Man or the track Talk to you (quite heavy with touches of R&B and jazz, mixed with some Chicago-like horn and copper features), or the atmospheric and very moody Give me rain. And on top of that, the production quality is top!

CD: Chalice - Digital Boulevard
From: Ydol eM Date: June 27, 2020 at 12:25
Comprehensible hard n'heavy with a progressive touch and recognizable German feeling for catchy melodies that are typical eg for FAIR WARNING or AXXIS. Anyway, the progressive elements move this music to the territory where bands like POVERTY'S NO CRIME are. All in all, nice music also for fans SHADOW GALLERY, ANGRA, PRETTY MAIDS... and that's quite enough. 75/100.

CD: Beast - ...Stay Hard
From: hair metal again Date: June 27, 2020 at 5:24
excellent hard rock release for BEAST with remarkable guitar work and fine anthemic songs that will keep your interest high!if i had to describe them i d say something like VANDAMNE with a rougher voice &edge overall!"running with the devil","aces in the hole","back to the bullet" and "stay hard" are the highlights!love it

CD: Aces - Kickoff
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: June 26, 2020 at 19:58
it starts off saying they are gonna rip our faces off, then talk about eggs, THEN he SHOCKS HIS NEIGHBOR by ripping his butt....UH WHAT!!! THEN if that's not enough he tells the crowd to shout "you will die" (UH that's a given) If I have to listen to this any longer I hope I die!! AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!

CD: Queensryche - Empire
From: Doug Date: June 25, 2020 at 22:29
Good album, but really, THE #1 Top Rated CD on HH? Hmmm....

CD: Noisy Mama - Everybody Has One
From: hair metal again Date: June 25, 2020 at 5:50
excellent hair metal release for NOISY MAMA with a fine sound& production !if you like bands like KIX or TORA TORA then you should pick it up and let a few spins before you get into the songs!in the start you wont find any big hooks but its a def grower and overall asolid performance!2 or 3 fillers unfortunately but very good in general

CD: Queen - News of the World
From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 24, 2020 at 22:43
Cool album with major hits of the band that are considered hymns of the music history...in my case "Spread Your Wings" & "Who Needs You" are the ones for me.87/100...a jewel for sure 💎 .87/100

CD: Santers - Guitar Alley
From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 24, 2020 at 22:36
A bit of a step down in here if compared with Racing Time but still pretty acceptable 👍 ...the Triumph sound is part of it and there is no doubt as the hand of Rik Emmett is involved 🙂 ..."Black Magic" is my number of the release...# 1,3,4,5 & 10(nice)are also in my list...83/100

CD: Santers - Racing Time
From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 24, 2020 at 22:29
A very pleasant album for sure...it rocks really good! 🤘...my fave ones are # 1 & 3(nice)...another excellent moments are 7 & 10 and for extras # 2,4,5 & 6...basically the whole release is pretty attractive 👍 .87/100

CD: Little River Band - The Net
From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 24, 2020 at 22:24
Decent album of a classic band... tracks # 7,9 & 10 are my faves in here 🙂 .75/100

CD: Dan McCafferty - Dan McCafferty
From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 24, 2020 at 22:15
Mellow and bluesy Rock that immediately put me to think from whom did The Quireboys take their musical inspiration 😃 ...tracks # 3(nice),7,9 & 10(nice)are the ones for me.70/100

CD: Wild Souls - Queen Of My Heart
From: juan carlos Date: June 24, 2020 at 18:25
Very Good Melodic HardRock album. This band is a mix of Wild Rose and Whitesnake. Good Production and cool riffs with some catchy guitar solos. "Love Ain't No Lie" "Queen of My Heart" "I Remember You" "Nothing But Loving You" and "Street Eagles" are my favorite songs. 85/100

CD: Cinderella - Authorized Bootleg: Tokyo, Japan 12/31/1990
From: headbanger4life Date: June 23, 2020 at 2:22
I was at this concert on New Years Eve 1990. It was at Tokyo Dome and the concert consisted of the Quireboys, Skid Row, Cinderella and Bon Jovi. They really did play a great set here. I didn’t know it was recorded but I’m glad I found out and have added it to my collection.

CD: Phil Vincent - Today, Tomorrow, Yesterday
From: juan carlos Date: June 22, 2020 at 7:08
A bit better than his previous album. I prefer PV doing more AOR stuff than this one but it's a cool album. I pick "Same Mistake" and "Hole in my Heart" as my favorite tracks. Some cool solos and average production. 80/100

CD: Eklypce - Passion After Midnight
From: juan carlos Date: June 22, 2020 at 6:12
Good Melodic Rock/AOR album. Poor/Average production, some good songs, "Need You In My Life" "Spirits Cryin' Again" & "Keep The Faith Alive" my favorite tracks. Cool bonus tracks ala Skid Row. 80/100

CD: Warrior - Fighting for the Earth
From: hair metal again Date: June 21, 2020 at 15:10
excellent heavy metal release for WARRIOR and a cult release mostly because of the Fighting For The Earth song that made quite an impact!their sound is somewhere between SAVATAGE ,JUDAS PRIEST & SHOK PARIS and the riffs& vocs are razor sharp and have a strong edge!"ruler",'fighting for the earth","defenders of creation " are excellent songs indeed and overall a classic heavy metal release of the mid 80s

CD: A Life Divided - The Great Escape
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: June 19, 2020 at 20:15
I agree with Rick. The more you hear it the more tracks become alive. My favorites are 1,2,4,10 & 12. Style? If you like Three Days Grace, Hinder, Nickleback..etc. You will love this band.

CD: In and Out - In and Out
From: hair metal again Date: June 19, 2020 at 11:57
Very good release for IN AND OUT with excellent musicianship and a fine commercial hard rockin sound that will satisfy all fans!to my ears they sound Pretty near to LILLIAN AXE 90 s era and they really offered a solid performance!"counting on you","enough love" and "never see me cry" a re the highlights

CD: Fabri Kiareli's F.E.A.S.T - Strong Wild and Free
From: zld Date: June 18, 2020 at 11:40
Great band, similar to xyz and dokken

CD: Fire - Thrill Me
From: zld Date: June 18, 2020 at 8:55
I think this is top notch melodic rock. Absolute the best

CD: BJATO - At Last
From: tomdwa Date: June 18, 2020 at 6:41
First comment here apparently, and an opportunity to underline the musical quality of this album. Mats Johanson really shines on the lead guitar here, and the music is very, very melodic, with several lead vocalists that are very good. The opener Cut and paste is one of the many highlights, and other personal favourits include Let you know and Shadow.

CD: Axxis - Virus of a Modern Time
From: MetalllianStallion Date: June 18, 2020 at 4:03
Talk about jumping on the current bandwagon in a time when most people around the world are waking up deciding which fashion statement they want to wear in public. A face mask, bandito, or the new arc-welder face shields are all the rage. Nothing like hitting on a chick and you sound like (BANE from Batman) trying to muffle a pick up line. Your quarantine camp or mine? Tracks that didn't make it on this album include, COVID CUTIE, 6-Foot Spread Eagle, She's Been Social DiSS-ING ME". In all seriousness it's trying times for many people as I think this virus scare is just background music for a economic take-down/reset along with all the added police state layers of control. If you thought those conspiracy nuts who talk about a coming one world Government where crazy, you're not laughing anymore. Good luck to all and remember never tell your neighbor how much storable food you have stashed in your bunker when the shi*t hits the fan.

CD: Girish and the Chronicles - Rock the Highway
From: MetalllianStallion Date: June 18, 2020 at 3:21
From the B-ollywood Bombay Strip comes a rarity.Based on the band name I didn't know what to expect as their name sounds like a Lord of the Rings spin off flick. This group from INDIA of all places shows off some serious chops, with one of the best pure-rock voices I have heard in the last decade. It's straight up 80's inspired MHR the way it was meant to be played. I think there is still room for improvement, but this is a serious step-up in quality from the band's debut'Back on Earth (2014)'. Hopefully the third time is the charm for the band's 3rd release. Don't get me wrong I like this one allot, but with the talent on board I think they can reach for the stars, which is rare in 2020 for this genre. 'GATC - Rock 'N' Roll Is Here To Stay' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lq82yt-Od1U&feature=emb_logo

CD: Swedish Funk Connection - 1987
From: tomdwa Date: June 17, 2020 at 15:03
By no means this is 'funk' music, the album title reflects better the content: melodic rock inspired by the music of the second part of the 80s. And very well done too, everything fits beautifully together. The nicely swaggering song Love is such a beautiful thing is the track that comes closest to the westcoast genre, the opener This love will last forever is aor in its finest form, and Stay with me is an excellent, beautifully layered track with a great melody. Recommended!

CD: 7HY - No Going Back
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: June 16, 2020 at 19:47
typo: those tracks are 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9 oh HELL listen to em all..AOR fans will love this cd.

CD: 7HY - No Going Back
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: June 16, 2020 at 19:46
oh MAN!! this band just gets better and better!! If you haven't had the pleasure of listening to these guys you absolutely MUST!! This album is by FAR their best (thou the others are killer). I DARE you to listen to "No Turning Back" and NOT sing along. The melody on this cd is incredible!! Favorites tho most of the album is great these tracks stand out: 1,2,3,4,7,8,9

CD: Bruce Hibbard - Never Turnin' Back
From: tomdwa Date: June 16, 2020 at 17:06
The very smooth Calling is my favourite track on the record. Mind you, Bruce Hibbard continued to make some wonderful jazzy and classy westcoast music later on, just check out the very good cd's Time waits and Forty years that deserve a spot on HH!

CD: 7HY - No Place In Heaven
From: MelodicMetal4Ever Date: June 16, 2020 at 15:55
NO reviews huh?!! You guys are missing out on an awesome cd. This band has a killer vocalist...the tracks Call Me Tonight, Hold Me Now, Never Meant to Hurt You, No Place In Heaven, You Lie. These are the stand out tracks but the whole album is really good. If you haven't tried them yet take a listen..AOR fans will be pleasantly surprised.

CD: Ozzy Osbourne - Ordinary Man
From: Doug Date: June 15, 2020 at 21:33
I would agree, some hit and miss on this one, but never a bad a thing when he is putting out new music. Ozzy's sound (understandably, he's a senior citizen now) has changed a lot and he needs help from others and production. I like tracks #2 and #5 the most. Was disappointed in the Elton John duet (IMO, Ozzy actually sounds better than Elton!).

CD: Tim Feehan - Full Contact
From: HeavyRocker85 Date: June 15, 2020 at 12:26
Locoaor, totalmente de acuerdo contigo. Una gema de exquisito AOR, temazo tras temazo es lo único que uno recibe luego de darle play a este tremendo album. Tim Feehan pertenece indudablemente junto a Honeymoons Suite, Glass Tiger, Harem Scarem, Coney Hatch, entre otros a la élite del Melodic Rock/AOR canadiense.

CD: Baghdad - Baghdad
From: HeavyRocker85 Date: June 15, 2020 at 12:08
This album is one of the best and most magical AOR albums I've ever heard. Enjoyable AOR from Marakesh Express to Shake It Up, Lucy. The wonderful synthesizers on this always take me to the moon. 10/10.

CD: Fastway - On Target
From: HeavyRocker85 Date: June 15, 2020 at 12:03
For the people who truly love Hard Rock and AOR: Don't pay attention to the negative comments above of some clueless haters, this album is an absolute AOR masterpiece with killer synthesizers, amazing guitars and the great and unique voice of Lea Hart. 10/10.

CD: Fahrenheit - Talking 'Bout Love
From: HeavyRocker85 Date: June 15, 2020 at 11:58
An absolute masterpiece. Wonderful piece of art blessed by the AOR Gods. I have found the first press CD edition in mint condition a couple of days ago just for 50 euros. Best deal of my life.

CD: Beg Borrow and Steal - Push and Shove
From: juan carlos Date: June 15, 2020 at 5:32
Very Good Melodic HardRock with a female vocal that could easily remind you of Witness/Saraya among others. "Step Back" "Gave You My Heart" "Shake" and "Simple Heart" are the best tracks. 85/100

CD: Bruce Hibbard - Never Turnin' Back
From: juan carlos Date: June 15, 2020 at 4:34
Great WestcoastAOR indeed! stellar production, Ten diverse songs, soft/soul/jazzy/smooth feel. Bruce has a really good voice and is an excellent songwriter. "Forgiven", The ballads "You'll Never Let Me Go" "All of me" & "You're So Good To Me" are my favorite tracks. A Class Act! 90/100

CD: Jetboy - A Day In The Glamorous Life

these are the demos of JETBOY before they got signed and of course we fans from back in the day lov em!when bands where for real in the studios,in the bars,in the streets and not in front of a screen!"feel so good","cut me down","one night stand" and "i wanna be a millionaire" are the highlights!great rockn roll

CD: Brother Brother - Young Warriors
From: hair metal again Date: June 12, 2020 at 9:01
excellent debut for BROTHER BROTHER with a clear Christian message that is easy to get through this magic voice of Billy Plake!as you spin the cd you ll get yourself lost in those sensational vocals but the rest of musicianship is great too!"no need for suicide","restless heart" and "what kind of love is this " are excellent songs indeed and i suggest if you find this rarity you pick it up

Put The Blame On Me.....I DARE you to listen to that track and NOT hum or Sing A long...awesome track. Rest of the album is excellent too..but that track stands out for me

CD: Tom De Luca - Down to the Wire

I don't hear it, I'm sorry, for me this is very average rock without any killer moments. And I don't like the voice either, but that's a matter of personal taste, I know.

The Bill Champlin sung Shelter this love is easily the best track on offer here. The rest is average.

CD: What If - What If

This one is a bit of a mixed bag for me. The production quality is immaculate, but the songwriting is not as strong on every track. The ones I really like are If this is love and When right is wrong

CD: Tommy Funderburk - Anything For You

As stated by others, the very average production quality doesn't do this justice, and that's a pity because several songs show some promise.

CD: Sammy Hagar - Street Machine

"Trans Am" is a silly song (especially when he spells out the words), but man the rest of this album is great. I saw him back in the day opening for Boston. Really good show, the day I became a true Sammy fan, have been ever since. His career has been (and still is) phenomenal. Should be in the RRHOF on his own merits!
