5.0 out of 5 stars One of Yngwie's best albums!, Oct. 17 2008
This review is from: Perpetual Flame (Audio CD)
When I heard about Tim Owens being engaged as a vocalist for Yngwie's new album I said to myself: Finally! He finally got the singer who is as good vocally as Yngwie is as a guitarist. It's a perfect match! The songs are great, the solos are mindblowing, Ripper is in a dangerous form. And for the ones who want to listen to different things, go listen to pop music. I DON'T want Yngwie to do anything different (as new metal crap or emo) because of someone's changing musical taste. Way to go! And yes, he may be narcistic and arrogant, but it doesn't matter. He is one of the best guitarists alive! He doesn't care what all the losers think!

5.0 out of 5 stars A monumental pasterpiece!, July 11 2008
This review is from: Nostradamus (Audio CD)
Judas Priest is one of the most talented heavy metal bands. They started almost 40 years ago with a mixture of hard rock and progressive rock, then turned to heavy metal, speed metal, whatever they call it. They are so diverse, it is difficult to define their style. None of their albums look alike, each and every one of them is different. They always try new things, and, besides Turbo, never failed. But with Nostradamus they have outdone themselves. Nostradamus is metal opera, and at the same time, vintage Priest. I don't think Rob Halford has ever been able to show the whole beauty and range of his voice. Deep Purple's Don Airey is probably the best keyboardist one could think of to invite for such an ambitious project. Lost Love and New beginning are the two songs I would remove from the song list, but the rest is so great! A stunning album, a masterpiece from one of the best bands ever!

1.0 out of 5 stars One star for the song Never Say Die, April 14 2008
This review is from: Never Say Die (Audio CD)
This is the only song worth listening on this album. Total disaster! Was it Ozzy and Geezer been stoned or Bill Ward totally drunk? They sound like beginners. This led to two good things though. First, firing Ozzy and starting his magnificent solo career. Second, Dio came to revive the band which led to the creation of three of their best albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums ever!, April 14 2008
This review is from: Heaven and Hell (Audio CD)
I still remember the first time I listened to Heaven And Hell. I was in awe. I couldn't believe that Dio fits like glove to the band. You have the impression they've been together forever. Coming from Rainbow, which is more of a Deep Purple sound, Dio made Black Sabbath darker and and created with them three masterpiece albums! Who would think, that a group that everybody thought was losing it after the horrible Never Say Die, will come back so strong! After so many great albums with Ozzy, they wrote some stunning material-Heaven And Hell, Die Young, Children Of the Sea, Lonely is The World, Neon Knights. It's about the whole album. One masterpiece after another. I love Ozzy, but I get mad when I hear people saying that Black Sabbath with Dio isn't Black Sabbath! It is! And no less than 100%
Now touring like Heaven And Hell (and sounding better than ever, I saw them last year), I cannot wait to hear the new album they are recording together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last great Ozzy Osbourne era album., April 14 2008
This review is from: Technical Ecstasy (Audio CD)
This album is amazingly good and diverse. Sadly, it came out after Sabotage, probably their best album, which explains why is it so underrated. But songs like Dirty Women, Gypsy, You won't change Me, Backstreet Kids, All Moving Parts make this album unique and memorable. It's a classic for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reunion album!, April 14 2008
This review is from: House Of Blue Light (Audio CD)
This is the last great Deep Purple album before their more mediocre releases. Great songs- Spanish Archer, Dead or Alive, Mitzee Dupree, Bad Attitude, The Unwritten Law, Strangeways ... Ritchie Blackmore is brilliant as always, Gillan's vocals are first class. Why is this album so badly underrated? What a shame!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their masterpieces!!, March 25 2008
This review is from: Slide It In (Audio CD)
I cannot say which Whitesnake album is their best, but this one's a favorite for the spot. David Coverdale is an amazing vocalist (for almost 35 years now) and still few singers compare to him. He has an amazing depth of his voice ranging from soft to very heavy. And his band created one of the best metal albums of the 80's. And those who judge Whitesnake based on their brief glam look (between 84 and 87) are plain stupid. It's the music that counts. And it's wonderful. Slow An'Easy, Love is no Stranger... useless to point out the best songs, the whole album is brlliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece attack from Mars!, Feb. 27 2008
This review is from: Bedlam In Goliath (Audio CD)
As all their previous albums, at a glance, this one is not an easy listening. But if you just forget about following the lyrics and trying to find out where each song starts and finishes and instead close your eyes and let yourself been carried away... it is a great experience. This is one of Mars Volta's most coherent and richest albums musically, and at the same time, the more complex. Each time you listen to this album you'll find out an instrument or solo which you've never heard previously. Cedric's voice is hitting higher notes then ever! The more you listen to this album, the more you'll like it. The duo Omar Rodriguez Lopez/Cedric Bixler Zavala is among the most talented and prolific in progressive music history. The Mars Volta has been compared to lots of great bands from the seventies. They sound like all of them and at the same time, like none of them. Their sound is unique and fits their name.
About the album. Just Goliath itself is worth buying the album. And so are the rest of the 75 minutes of total aural assault!

5.0 out of 5 stars The magic that left Nightwish, Dec 16 2007
This review is from: My Winter Storm (Audio CD)
I think Nightwish should be more insistent to try to settle things with Tarja. Her solo album shows that she was the magic element in their sound. This album, although not as instrumentally sophisticated as Nightwish, emanates depth, sincerity and grace. She may not be the best opera singer in the world, but Tarja's voice sounds simply divine. I realise now that she was all that made me a fan of Nightwish. Almost every song of the album is great. Don't expect anything like Nightwish.
