4.0 out of 5 stars A solid album, March 13 2012
This review is from: The Final Frontier (Audio CD)
After 30 years, it's not easy to make an album which is up to the expectations of the fans. Iron Maiden did it again. It's a very solid album which needs some listening in order to be appreciated. I personally prefer "A Matter of Life and Death which was incredible, but it's a matter of taste too.
I can't understand reviewers like C. Edmond. It says "The music is good, but I can't stand the singer's attitude." This is not a review about music. It's a meaningless bitching. Nobody is asking you about your personal affinities or dislikes. You obviously have a personality issues, but who cares? Bruce Dickinson is big enough to have any attitude. Intelligent fans care only about the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great hard rock album!, Dec 7 2011
This review is from: Black Country Communion (Audio CD)
I stopped writing reviews a long time ago because I am getting disappointed by some stupid reviews on this site.
I am talking about the review of J. Doran "Beejayca". You don't trash an album because you hate one of the performers. Your review is not helpful for the people who like the artist and want to know if they should buy the album. If you're a grinch, find another way of bitching.
And another thing. Rock music is not pop music where things are coming in and out of date. Especially the music from the early 70ies when the most of the best music was created in this genre. In pop music, it was Britney Spears yesterday, Katy Perry today and something else tomorrow. If this is what you like, don't write reviews for classical hard rock albums.
I think that the album deserves 4 stars but because of the above mentioned pathetic review the stars became 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you miss from the 70s hard rock, July 2 2011
BCC is a strange mix from all the bands that established the modern heavy metal. Jason Bonham is drumming exactly as his father, Glenn Hughes sings his lungs out, the mood is exceptional. If you've experienced the 70s you'll know what I am talking about. Some will say "Move forward!" Yes, I listen a lot to new music, but nothing compares to this magic years...and this band sounds so refreshing!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the album you'd expect after "Hair of the dog"!, May 7 2011
This review is from: Big Dogz (Audio CD)
Amazingly, 36 years later, Nazareth makes an album with the vibe of probably their best album from the 70's "Hair of the dog".No wonder the album has a doggish name! Dan McCafferty is on fire, everything is great! Their last album I liked so much was "Expect no Mercy" in 1977! If it's their last album, they are going with a bang!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Great Ritchie Blackmore, Feb. 27 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rainbow: Rockin Night (DVD)
This is actually review for two DVD's I got this DVD and it was defective on the last song. I returned it and when I got it again, to my surprise, it was not the same show. It was the Doogie White show from the 1995 Stranger In Us All tour which also another creviewer got. I think that this one is better than the show with Joe Lynn Turner despite the bad sound (the first song is barely listenable). I actually like even more Doogie White as a singer than Joe Lynn Turner. I wish that somebody remasters both shows because they're really worth buying. The 1995 show contains almost the whole album Stranger In Us All which is awesome and highly underrated. No wonder Ritchie lost interest in Rainbow and started enjoying medieval music and castles. It was thenoneties-the worst period for classical metal.
Rainbow with Joe Lynn Turner has some fine moments. It is not as good as the Dio lineup though. Joe Lynn Turner is a very good singer but Blackmore decided to change the sound to a more radio-oriented one. On this DVD are the best songs from this lineup-Death Alley Driver, Fire Dance, Spotlight Kid, Fool For The Night. Blackmore is as great as ever, there is an unusual version of Smoke on the Water at the end. The quality is not marvellous, but it's worth if you are a fan of Ritchie Blackmore. I regret for not keeping this CD and I don't know how to get it because there is a obviuosly a mizup between two concerts. The only thing in common is they both start with Spotlight Kid.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best show on TV, Feb. 9 2011
This is an amazing show, seasons 1 through 4 are a TV masterpiece! I recommend to watch it when it comes out on DVD or Blue-ray because you can't wait for the next episode. It's so addictive you'd want to watch the whole season in one go.

After formatting according to the manual I have used it as a backup disk for Time Machine. And it works perfectly for three years now!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best extreme metal albums!, Sept. 1 2010
This review is from: Syl (Audio CD)
SYL is one of the most original and talented extreme metal bands!
They are incredibly aggressive and yet melodic! And Devin Townsend is without a doubt one of the best metal singers today. And at the same time he is a songwriting genius.
I like a lot his prog albums too but UI think he really shines in SYL. All songs on this album are great! I hope they will be together again some day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! One of the Best voices in metal at his best!, Sept. 1 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Halford : Live In Anaheim (DVD)
I think Rob Halford was getting even better with age. His voice is becoming richer and more colourful. The way he sings on this DVD is almost unhuman.
The setlist is perfect- even Never satisfied and White Heat Red Hot... Never heard them live before. The only thing missing is Betrayal- the best song from Crucible and all the bandmates say in the interview section that this is a great song to be performed live. And yet it's not on the setlist. But probably I want too much. The DVD is perfect as it is! I hope that Rob will be alive and well for many years to come. They are very few great vocalists in metal and we lost Dio this year. Unfortunately, there is no replacement in the young generation of bands where the vocals are often reduced to background.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet amother masterpiece from Rammstein!, Aug. 6 2010
This review is from: Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da (Audio CD)
They did it again! For me-for the sixth time they've delivered a masterpiece! . A lot of people don't like Rosenrot but I am not among them. Spring, Benzin, Hilf Mir, Feuer und Wasser, Zerstoeren, Wo Bist Du... Come on, these are Rammstein classics! This band have never disappointed me for the last 13 years. They have never repeated themselves! And their new album is a resume of their best! The vocals are better than ever (I listened to the first five albums again to compare) , their compositions - mature and diverse, the lyrics are as twisted as usual. I couldn't expect more! An instant classic! My favourites-
-Wiener Blut . I think it's crazier than Mein Teil. I Love the frantic heavy riffs and the lyrics are so strong! Simple and gut wrenching! It's the Fritzl song. "Welcome to the the darkness, to the loneliness, to the the reality" This sums up the whole tragic story of the Austrian psycho.
-Rammlied. Great opener and an istant live anthem
-B********* Heavy, and twisted
-Waldmann's Heil -heavy and melodic
-Liebe ist fur alle da-thrashy and heavy
-Mehr-fantasic emotional vocals and a lot of heavy riffs
- Frueling in Paris-great powerful ballad
-Pussy-I didn't ike it very much at first, but now I think it's a great live song. And the text is very sarcastic.
I think this album cannot disappoint a Rammstein fan. Buy the deluxe edition with the extra tracks-three of them (Fuhre Mich, Donaukinder and Halt) are fantastic the last two are versions of Roter Sand -OK but not mind-blowing as the rest of the album.
