Solid melodic rock effort from Alessandro Del Vecchio & company.

Maxx Explosion - Forever - 2013



Pretty good effort from most of House of Lords sans James Christian.

Trillion - Trillion - 1979



Was going to review Fergie Frederikson's latest (and last) Any Given Moment, but haven't gotten to it yet, and this is where it all began. Didn't even make the connection when he showed up on Toto's Isolation. Loved both of the Trillion albums even though he left before Clear Approach. It's a shame he quit the industry for a decade. RIP FF.

J.R. Blackmore Group - Still Holding On - 2006



Richie's son, with Michael Bormann on vox. Pretty enjoyable, The apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this case.

Find Me - Wings Of Love - 2013



Really good rocking AOR cd. Reminds me somewhat of Hurricane, or Hansen era Unruly child, especially the choruses.

UDO - Live in Sofia - 2012



Just started this. Packaging sucks, digipak, heard the latest Nightwish is similar, but I guess I can sacrifice packaging for not being a DVD in 2012. Sound seems pretty damn good, although a little crispy. Video as well, although some excessive flashing around, but the Blu-ray vid rocks raw footage-wise. Not a lot of stage flair, just five guys thrashing it out. 23 tracks, with a good portion of Accept tunes. Surprised UDO's got more solo material than he did with accept.

Dynazty - Bring The Thunder - 2009



Another bunch of Swedes doing the retro metal/hard rock thing. Done pretty well, but I'm hoping since this was the debut it gets a little better on the way up to their new release Renatus in April. The domestic cd I got made by Perris records was sketchy and needed the right computer to rip a CD-R copy of it, so the European or Japanese version may be a better bet.

Angelica (Rylin) - Thrive - 2013



Not bad, although I think I liked The Murder Of My Sweet's efforts slightly better.

Rush - Clockwork Angels Tour - 2013



The material from CA seems to be more compelling live, but the intro is plain weird, and video is crazy (as seen on Paladia). Definitely not a buy for me unless it's a giveaway.

Radiohead - The Bends Pinkpop Edition - 1995



Not the easiest ep to find, but worth the search.

Consortium Project (V) - Species - 2011



Ian Parry & companys' last effort(?). I got these in 2,1,4,3,5 order, so I'm not hip to the whole concept in the intended fashion. Been stalking this for 3 years, and finally got a decent priced copy. Supposed to be the hardest one of the bunch, but I'm not entirely convinced, I'm sure it's the loudest. Biggest letdown is another crap guitar tone throughout.

Degreed - Love Life Loss - 2011



Seems like the Swedish version of Hoobastank to me. (Except the crappy 5th album) Maybe a little more keyboardly, but loud guitars, big hooks, and great vocal harmonies. Definitely interested in We Don't Belong.

The Mystery - Apocalypse 666 - 2012



Pretty interesting release. The best parts are when Iris Boanta is laying down the sugar side vs. the (attempted) harder edge Veronica Freemanish tough stuff.

Myrath - Tales Of The Sands - 2011



Heard lots of raves about these guys, but when I listened to Desert Call clips, I wasn't feeling it at all. Glad I picked this up though.

New Device - Here We Stand - 2013



Kind of reminds me of Jett Black, like this one better than the one before (Takin' Over).

Adrenaline Mob - Men Of Honor - 2014



Portnoy out, AJ Pero in. While I was harsh on Omerta, it ended up being a fave for traffic/commuter duty. This one seems extremely similar in themes, tone and attitude. Let it Go sounds nearly identical to Undaunted. I'm sure I'll end up liking this more than I do now, but I'm seriously ready for another Allen/Lande or Symphony X effort before another A-Mob one.

Also no way to get the 12th track without going to Europe (2 disc set with essentially Coverta added), or Japan.

Steal Seal - By The Power Of Thunder - 2007



DC Cooper up front, and very Royal Huntish. Seems like an under the radar release with only one review on amazon and uber cheap at the moment.

Jerusalem - She - 2011



Singer sounds too much like Bono to enjoy for me.
