If there's any element of MHR that I sometimes get tired of, I'd say it might be the guitar solo. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy a good solo. Sometimes it can truly add to a song, make it more complete, like paint on a picture. It can provide a break from the rest of the song, a little interlude before the song continues and finishes. Sometimes a solo can add a lot to a song. But sometimes I

A remarkable talent, and waaaay too young to leave us. RIP and thoughts, prayers, and condolences to his loved ones. Will have to spin Eyewitness CD tomorrow....maybe some Millenium and Iced Earth as well.

Add me to the list as well. And (I'm sure some of you saw this coming) your list is missing an absolute gem of an album in Killer Dwarfs' "Dirty Weapons!!!" I know I've sung its praises many times before, but remember Steve, - you asked what you had missed, lol! In fact, we discussed this very same album last year around this time. IMHO, this album has it all: great musicianship,

Seriously?! That kind of blows me away. I mean, I'm pretty sure I remember reading an interview with Glen Benton in which he said that he threatens the lives of Mormons or anyone who comes to his door to discuss religion. And, in addition to burning an inverted cross onto his forehead, he also claimed that he would commit suicide in the year 2000 when he reached thirty-three years of age. (It

For me, for many years, Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind, and Powerslave were the Holy Trinity of Maiden albums. I hardly ever listened to anything from the first two, and with the exception of Live After Death, didn't listen to anything post-Powerslave. Years later, I guess I was ready for some more Maiden. That's whey I listened to Somewhere in Time. For me, there's no denying that it rep

I agree with you, Wardy. Priest's albums and sound changed over time. To me, their early albums (primarily Sad Wings, Sin After Sin, and Stained class.....not so much Rocka Rolla, which had its own unique sound) had a dark, brooding sound. I'm not sure exactly how to describe it - More '70s? More "dinosaur rock?!" More Sabbath? Then, they seemed to morph with their next three al

Hope he makes a speedy recovery. On a side note, I was utterly shocked recently when I discovered that he is also a member of Deicide. I guess no one could ever accuse him of being musically one-dimensional. Again, best wishes to him and his family and here's hoping for a full and speedy recovery.

It's still priced at over $30 on Amazon, so I had to opt for an iTunes purchase. Can't wait to spin it! I've been a fan of this band since "New Birth." Like a lot of '80s stuff, their lyrics sometimes fall a little short. But from a pure MHR standpoint, I can't believe that their "Voices in the Night" album didn't sell at least a gazillion copies. Musically, I always

I don't mind this at all. In fact, I quite like it. Okay, so the initial vocals are okay-at-best. So are a lot of thrash vocals. From the point in the song when Castrovano comes in for the chorus, it's all great. Musically sound, strong, clean vocals, good melody - if you like thrash, then what's not to like, really? I dunno, the song is pretty strong and melodic for a thrash tune. I've be

D@MN! I was pretty excited to hear about this release...until I checked it out on Amazon. $30.74? Ouch!! Hopefully, the price drops....substantially.

Saw them last Fall. Sonically, one of the best concerts I've seen. The whole band was truly phenomenal. I liked the setlist (all of the expected hits), but I too would have liked to hear a track or two from Can't Slow Down.

No More Hell To Pay is by far my favorite Stryper album. I dig their '80s stuff, but I just think that NMHTP tops anything they had done up to that point. Fallen was also quite good, but the new one

Was obsessed with Kiss from grade 4 (9 years of age, back in the mid-to-late '70s) on up through adulthood. Still like 'em very much, but I'm not even close to what I'd consider obsessed anymore. I have never been obsessed in the same way with any other band, but I am a pretty big fan of Journey and Judas Priest.

Heeeyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Captain Volvo - Good to hear from ya. I am not kidding, about Shiraz Lane, Mats. I mean, I'm super happy with the new W.E.T. album. It's totally up my alley and it grows on me with every listen. But I feel exactly the same about the Shiraz Lane album. Maybe the reason I'm so impressed with it is because, unlike the W.E.T. album, I wasn't expecting to like it s

Agree with both of you. I know that at some point I checked out their earlier stuff, and it didn't do anything for me at all. And it wasn't just the runaway-train-vocals; the songs did nothing for me either. But on this album, the singer uses his voice so much more effectively - he's so much more restrained, controlled, and tasteful. I guess he learned that sometimes less is more. And the so

I'm pretty sure that I'm late to the party in terms of this band's latest release. But, given the fact that I missed out on past discussion and also the fact that I just bought it, I've gotta say that I'm enjoying this. I started out considering it to be a pretty good album, and it's grown since then. I especially seem to enjoy some of the moodier, more acoustic, or perhaps "deeper" c

Thanks for sharing. I like this. In addition to Sister Hazel, they also remind me of the Christian act Casting Crowns - with the exception of the content/coarse language, of course. The vocals especially strike me as being similar.
