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.


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.
