Candlemass - King of the Grey Islands
Love this one. Robert Lowe crushes and the band sounds great.
One of their best albums, for sure.
Eeeeeeeh...I'll agree to disagree, but I'd even take "Chapter VI" over it...
Riot - Brethren of the Long House
Not bad. Sometimes a little dated, but strong through and through.
I have a real soft spot for this album. It's very light, but the tunes work well. I saw them for the first time at a warm up show before their Japanese tour in support of this album, and my review of the show was my first published metal writing (in Sentinel Steel zine)
I do remember that review, I remember being jealous - cool, that was you! Wish I still had the copies of that zine...Where was it, somewhere on Long Island?

Halford - Resurrection
Very strong return to form for Halford after spinning his wheels post Priest
I thought this album was okay - he sounded good but the songs were stupid as fuck.
I thought it was too little, too late: I felt the songs, especially his vocal melodies, were so generic, and the words were borderline retarded, even compared to the dumber Priest songs. It was, like, insulting.
