TNT - All the Way to the Sun - 2005



Heard Tony Harnell's back in TNT (YAY), so I busted this out. Also heard he was working with a reconstituted Riot among many others, but sounds like they picked someone else. Hope TNT hits the studio soon, and doesn't just do the retro tour stuff. What A Wonderful World was a WTF moment on this one, but otherwise great.

Dream Theater - Live At Luna Park - 2013



Pretty kick ass package for the price ($14) for the bare bones blu-ray, it gets worse from there as you move up on editions.

Great raw video, edited horribly (I think budokan was much better). Mangini's kit is huge, and he probably used every piece of it. JP is hot in the mix but that's okay by me. JLB is almost spot on throughout, although he has a moment or two. All in all good stuff, although another editing crue would help, and personally I'd have liked the setlist to be Black Clouds and A Dramatic Turn Of Events in their entirety back to back.

Portnoy, Sheehan, MacAlpine, Sherinian - Live In Tokyo - 2013



And from the other side... I've never seen Tony live, so this was fantastic (new Ring Of Fire supposedly in the works too), although he had unmarked fretboards on all his guitars, including his 8 string. Same issue with the vid. This is geeked out instrumental craziness, and they miss a lot of stuff. Still recommended though.

Balance Of Power - Heathenology - 2005 - Japanese Edition



"Hits" collection and a live CD with the highlight here a DVD. I was kind of disappointed when John K. replaced Lance King, but he does a more than admirable job, much more accessible than the Biomechanical stuff. Video's fairly weak, but still cool. Nothing above and beyond that I can tell from the Japanese version other than the OBI and the Japanese language insert.

Rob Rock - Live In Atlanta - 2009



Some interesting tidbits on this, including some old Joshua footage. There's some blackouts during the show, so I'm assuming maybe some Impelliteri material I was hoping for. There is an Impelliteri video clip though. The show is great, performances are spot on, but it really feels mechanical like everyone's listening to a click track.

The Letter Black - Rebuild - 2013



Pretty good follow up effort to Hanging On By A Thread, although near the end, they start to throw in some scremo crap, but it's only the last couple of songs.

Delp And Goudreau - 2003



Since the new Boston disc was coming out it reminded me of Brad Delp and I picked this up. A little mellow for my taste.

Jonny Lang - Fight For My Soul - 2013



Even though his previous studio album was divergent from his previous style, I still liked it (although not nearly as much as his earlier work). This one really jumps the shark for me.

Icon For Hire - Icon For Hire - 2013



Where Scripted was a fairly rocking pop cd, this one flips the formula, so it's nearly all pop with some distorted guitars (rarely) thrown in. Disappointing.

Avenged Sevenfold - Hail To The King - 2013 - Regular Edition



This one just seems kind of flat and uninspired to me. Deluxe edition only includes a code for 1 bonus track mp3 download.

Black Star Riders - All Hell Breaks Loose - 2013 - Deluxe Edition


Really glad they didn't use the Thin Lizzy name for this, although quite frankly they easily could have as the vibe is pretty much spot on. I wish Damon Johnson would give us some more Brother Cane though, although he's a great matchup with Scott Gorham. Deluxe edition has one extra track and a making of DVD.

Angeline - Disconnected - 2011



No outstanding individual performances, but the sum is better than the parts. It all just fits together and works well.

Axel Rudi Pell - Knight Treasures - 2002



Pretty great show on DVD1, haven't got to the second one though.

Carmen Gray - The Portrait Of Carmen Gray - 2006



Weird. Sounds really good, but it doesn't. I'm hoping the 2nd one they have the kinks worked out.

Voodoo Six - Songs To Invade Countries To - 2013



I guess these guys toured with Maiden. The amazon reviews are all high thumbs up. They're pretty good, but not jawdroppingly so. Reminds me some of Little Caeser.

Human Zoo - Precious Time - 2008



I think this is the first one, both this and Over The Horizon being released in 2008. This one's definitely the weaker of the two. Not bad, just a little lacking comparatively.

Seven - Freedom Call - 2011 - Deluxe Edition



Straight up hard rock/metal with a little modern influence. Pretty good, found them youtube hunting. Two extra tracks over standard.

Vindictiv - Cage Of Infinity - 2013



Not a bad 3rd effort, but more straight ahead. Marco Sandron starts off kind of slow but finishes off strong. Still Hard to beat Goran Edman on the earlier ones (with some Oliver Hartman thrown in on the 2nd one).
