Shaneytown - Shanytown - 2012



More VanZant progeny. Definitely a Skynyrd/38 special vibe. Good stuff, although I think Loud Pipes is the one song I could do without. Cheapo cardboard sleeve.

Fates Warning - Darkness In A Different Light - 2013



Didn't really grab me on first listen. It may take some time. Hopefully it does well enough we'll never have to hear John Arch again.

Outworld - Outworld - 2006



Over the top prog metal that was commanding ridiculous prices before the 2013 reissue that's supposed to have a bonus track. A couple of the guys are in Eumeria, so it's no wonder I like this, throw in Rusty Cooley and Kelly Carpenter and you've got an enjoyably crazy album.

Dezperadoz - The Legend And The Truth - 2006



Interesting olde time western/hard rock album. I guess the rawhide cover is to be expected.

Santa Cruz - Screaming For Adrenaline - 2013



Pretty good modern 80's style "hair" metal.

Edge Of Attack - Edge Of Attack - 2013



Kind of weird metal with AOR sensibilites. It works sometimes, but generally not. Production is a little weak too. A 2nd album with a good producer would probably do wonders.

Dramagods - Love - 2005



Not really feeling Nuno Bettencourt outside of Extreme, and this continues the trend.

Halestorm - ReAnimate 1/2 - 2011/2013








Not much on covers, but since I love Lizzy & Co. had to check these out. All the songs are pretty straight on the nose, and kind of a letdown after the fabulous cover she did with Adrenaline Mob.

Andre Matos - The Turn Of The Lights - 2013



Another solid effort from AM. No where as good as Shaman's Reason though, which was his best. Multiple different versions on this one, with the differentiating factor being different single cover tracks, except for the Japanese limited 2 CD edition which has them all (but is ridiculously expensive).

Deep Purple - Now What!? - 2013 - Deluxe Edition



Seems much more enjoyable than Rapture Of The Deep or Banannas. Probably could have lived without the deluxe edition, but the ~1/2 hour interview with everyone together was pretty enjoyable (once). Interesting to hear them talk about the state of the industry as they see it. Don Airey does a serviceable job on keys, but it's hard to not miss Jon Lord.

Chastain - Surrender To No One - 2013



Good to have Chastain back, and even better to have Leather back as well. Sad she left, but Kate French was a welcome addition (still waiting on a new Vainglory album). Only have a couple of listens under the belt, the biggest problem I can see is mastering level. Sounds kind of crispy, but no one's put any Chastain album up on the dr db site, so maybe I'll work on that this weekend.

Coney Hatch - Four - 2013



One of my favorite obscure bands from the 80's. Was really psyched to hear they were getting back together. After listening to this a couple of times, I think maybe Max Norman (and Kim Mitchell) had more to do with me liking them. I followed Carl Dixon's and Andy Curran's solo offshoots back in the day and they never measured up. To be fair it's kind of hard to go almost 30 years between albums and expect instant magic.

Megadeth - Super Collider - 2013 - Deluxe Edition (European)



Only one live track less than the Best Buy version from what I can tell. Seems better than 13, except for the Cold Sweat (Thin Lizzy) cover. One of my favorite Lizzy songs.

Lionville - Lionville - 2011



Pretty good. Seems like an Unruly Child vibe, maybe a little mellower. Definitely want to hear II.

Lost In Thought - Opus Arise - 2011



Kind of surprising. Really liked this one.

Tad Morose - Revenant - 2013



Urban Breedless Tad Morose. Not bad, but I think I'd like Trail of Murder with him better, but it's stuck @ $20. The tunes are pretty good, glad to have them back, but it's still not TM for me.

Flying Colors - Live In Europe - 2013



I wasn't thoroughly sold on the studio album, although it's been growing on me, but this is pretty fantastic. Wish there was some more bonus footage with more dregs songs.

Red Dragon Cartel - Red Dragon Cartel - 2014 - Best Buy Edition



Jake E. Lee's return (finally). First affordable release of the year. I really wanted to like this. Didn't even know that Darren Smith of Harem Scarem/Blackstar fame was out front, the guests are mostly a distraction, and screw up the continuity (Robin Zander, Paul Dianno, Maria Brink) but Sass Jordan's inclusion just makes me wonder what this whole thing would have sounded like with her.

One extra track over standard.
