Celtic Frost - Into the Pandemonium
Never a bad idea.
Crimson Glory - Strange and Beautiful
For the love of Dog, why?
Diamond Head - Lightning to the Nations
...and back to the good ideas.

My list:

Holy Terror - Total Terror:

Nice having it all in one place.

Sylosis - Monolith:

Pretty sure this is their best record. Good mix of thrash, death and power metal concepts without too much 'core seeping in.

Glenn Hughes - Resonate:

Like many of his offerings, I enjoy it, but I don't find myself thinking "you know, I really should listen to that more".

Jimi Hendrix Experience - "Are You Experienced?":

Nothing needs to be said about this.

Symphony X - The Odyssey:

The debut of Angry Russ. Still loaded with really good songs, minus the Disney-fest at the end. The drums didn't age well on this. Very plastic.

Chris Stapleton - Traveler:

Modern country that hearkens back to the Bakersfield sound. Not that level of classic, but as close as you're going to get out of Nashville.

Lords of the Trident - Shadows From the Past:

Exactly what I expected. Nothing wrong with that.

King Diamond - Live in Philly and at Graspop:

Philly's been tuned, but not horribly. Graspop sounds like I expected. Good set, and King has the crap doubled out of him, but given his age he delivers.

GTR - GTR:

Should have been better than it was. Not bad, but not overly great, either.

Haunt - Luminous Eyes:

This is, well, it sounds like something that would have been on New Renaissance in the '80s.

WET - Earthrage:

A little light in the loafers for me.

Visigoth - The Revenant King:

Still disappointing.

Fleetwood Mac - Fleetwood Mac:

The band's reset is pretty awesome. Too bad they would only be this good for one more album after this, although that's a pretty damn high peak.

Division - Now with more previous members!We're on Facebook, too.
