JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE – He Saw It Coming (2017)

0 Comments

I feel as if when delivering an unfavourable review, I need to preface it with my qualifications to do so, before someone starts the “oh he just doesn’t like that artist/style it’s too soft/heavy/bluesy.” So with that in mind, I love Great White and I own every album from start to last plus Jack’s own previous solo […]

QUIET RIOT – Road Rage (2017)

0 Comments

Quiet Riot is of course one of the classic names in hard rock, but nothing here gives any indication of the music that earned them the status held prior to the death of frontman Kevin DuBrow. Since that time, drummer Frankie Banali has taken a number of lineups out on the road under the QR moniker, but this is […]

MEAT LOAF – Braver Than We Are (2016)

0 Comments

Braver Than We Are is apparently Meat Loaf’s last album. Even if that wasn’t the intention, once the fanbase gets hold of this, that will be the end result. This is a career killer. The bravest aspect of this release is how anyone other than Meat Loaf would want to put their name on it. And I don’t say any […]

BON JOVI – Burning Bridges (2015)

0 Comments

So Jon Bon Jovi is all about ‘burning bridges’ in the twilight of his career. He’s burning Richie Sambora and he’s burning Mercury Records. And he’s using big words like integrity…but where is the integrity in throwing together some half-assed compilation of B (more like D) material and expecting fans to lap it up? And […]

BRET MICHAELS – True Grit (2015)

0 Comments

There are so many good releases around in all genres of music, and a lot of positive reviews from fans and right here from me. So it’s great to have something as reliable as a Bret Michaels solo album to help balance the scales. As regular as a high fiber diet and consisting of the same resultant […]

SNAKES IN PARADISE – Garden Of Eden (1997)

0 Comments

After a couple of years break the guys are back with a new label after their previous one Long Island Records ceased operation a while back. This album doesn’t really have a lot in common with their debut. It was a good album but was more pop rock AOR with a production that was a […]

HOUSE OF SHAKIRA – Lint (1997)

0 Comments

Wow, this really hits you like a brick wall! The first thing I can think of when hearing the hard rocking fist in the air melodic bliss of Morning Over Morocco, is why haven’t I heard this album earlier! And why wasn’t I told that House Of Shikara are a powerful blend of a solo […]

HOUSE OF SHAKIRA – On The Verge (1998)

0 Comments

House Of Shakira provided one of the best and most promising debut album’s in many years with their album ‘Lint’. It’s been a couple of years down the road and finally we have the new album ‘On The Verge’. The guys have formed their own distinct sound and with heavy influences from Journey, Styx and […]
