Kobra And The Lotus/Prevail II
I seem to be the only one who liked this more than part one. I'm not sure why.
Prevail I was my #2 of 2017. This one likely will be in the third tier of my 2018 list.
People slept on this, with the other albums Erik was a part of. This one was a lot of fun too.
I did not get into the previous album, but I found this one to be a good time.
Barren Earth/A Complex Of Cages
If I was in that mood more often, this would have ranked high for me. It's fantastic for the style.
First Barren Earth release I have liked.
Holter/Vlad the Impaler
The more time goes on, the more I'm annoyed by how much of a copy it is. It's good, but a pale shadow.
Heh, I did not get into the first one.
Light The Torch/Revival
Amazing. Rivals the '09 KSE album.
It's just good for me. The only great KSE release for me is Alive or Just Breathing.
Their best, by a wide margin.
Yeah, the first W.E.T. I have liked. I dig 5 or 6 of the tracks.

Myles Kennedy/Year of the Tiger ("Year of the Tiger")
Bored me to tears.
I only like the title track.
