This album made me discover Yakuza and I am a fan since. I've never heard a mixture of jazz, doom, prog, death and other musical styles. The use of saxophone is giving the album a haunting, almost morbid feeling. Great and addictive prog-metal album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't take into account the misleading 1- 3star reviews!, Aug. 25 2012
The bad reviews are obviously because of the stupid unveiling trailer which, fortunately, I didn't watch. But don't get this wrong, the season is excellent! You'll not be able to stop watching one episode after the other until the end. Therefore I wait for the season DVD to come out and watch the whole season in two or three shots. I was never a big fan of Tom Hanks, but his son, Colin Hanks is incredible as this season's killer psychopath! Can't wait for the next season of Dexter!

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal album of the year!, Aug. 11 2012

Canadian band Striker is probably the best of the metal bands that appeared in the last 15 tears. Their first album "Eyes in the Night" was a killer, the second is as good as the first one, if not better.
The vocalist Dan Cleary is in the league of Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford and Ronnie James Dio (Seriously!) . Great guitars, fantastic songwriting, a taste of the 80s NWOBHM! And, of course, they are more famous worldwide than in Canada! If you like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, there is hope that somebody will continue their legacy! You won't be disappointed!
Some sceptics will say "Why go back to that sound instead of doing something new?" It's the new which is the problem. The new styles suck. If the new sucks and you're able to do a great "old", then why not?

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid album, March 13 2012
Ce commentaire est de: 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
Ce commentaire est de: 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
Ce commentaire est de: Black Country Communion 2 (Audio CD)
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
Ce commentaire est de: 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

Ce commentaire est de: 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.
