1.0 out of 5 stars Its A Piece of Crap, June 2, 2014
If I could give it less than one star I would. It worked fine for the first couple of months and then it showed its true colors and revealed it to be the piece of crap that it is. It runs out of ink frequently and even after you've changed out the cartridges it still won't print. You go through all the cartridge and print alignment steps and it still won't print. It's a big hunk of CRAP! I will never buy HP products again, if I can help it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Top of the Pops!, March 3, 2014
This review is from: Kill 'Em All (Audio CD)
One of the best metal albums of all time. I can't think of a s***ty track on here. Even the cover songs are decapitating. Back when Metallica was "Metallica." Its strange to think how bad they would start to suck in 1991-1992.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars For The Seattle Show Alone, March 3, 2014
The Seattle show from the Justice tour is skull crushing. Jason proved his worthiness back then on this tour and the MOR tour. The Thing That Should Not Be is the heaviest, most bad ass song in the history of the band and Jason nails it. Cliff would be proud. The Mexico City show is ok. I get a little bored with it and the San Diego shows. I feel this tour is where the band really started their downhill free for all into pure crap. I saw the 1992 tour and fell asleep a few times it was so boring and over the top. I wish Metallica had released more raw, uncut shows from '84-'89, like their 1985 sets at Metal Hammer Fest and Day On The Green and 1983 Chicago. 80s Metallica and 90s-00s Metallica are two completely different bands. The first one is one of the best metal bands in the history of rock while the second is one of the worst.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Metallica, March 3, 2014
This review is from: Cliff 'Em All! (DVD)
Back when Metallica was a fierce, ferocious, high octane, brutal, in your face metal band. A great tribute to Cliff with some of the coolest behind the scenes and rare, live footage the band has ever released. I have this on VHS and DVD, that's how great it is. I can't believe how bad the band began to suck a few years later when they started working with Bob Rock. They've sucked ever since. If you kiddies want to know and learn about the real Metallica. Pick this one up and give your Cunning Stunts and S&M dvds to your sister.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Return of Adrian Smith and Bruce Dickinson, September 27, 2012
This review is from: Iron Maiden - Rock In Rio (DVD)
Thank God! I never understood why Adrian left in the first place. Although, after hearing No Prayer For The Dying back in 1990 I began to see Adrian's side of things. Anyway, fast forward almost a decade and Iron Maiden are back in top form, performing better than ever with the guitar god Adrian Smith and one of the best vocalist in in the history of heavy metal.

1.0 out of 5 stars Metallica Bring The Stink, September 27, 2012
This review is from: Cunning Stunts (DVD)
I remember watching this video for the first time years ago and laughing my a$$ off, wondering what the hell happened to the real Metallica and what did these four impos(t)ers do with them? No hair, no balls and NO metal here kids, just plain old, generic, run of the mill 90s alterna rock. I would have never of guessed in 1988 that ten years later Metallica would be lamer than Def Leppard without Steve Clarke. Do yourself a favor, skip this drivel and pick up Iron Maiden's Rock In Rio, Flight 666 and En Vivo dvds instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Wanted To Hate It But It's Not Bad, Not Bad At All, September 27, 2012
This review is from: Generation Swine (Audio CD)
This is a unique release by the band. It's the first album with Vince Neil back since his controversial firing from the band in 1992. It's the band's most experimental record mixing elements of 70s glam rock, 80s hair metal, 90s post Grunge, Electronica and Industrial metal. I hate to give Tommy and Nikki credit here because it sounds like they were a real pain in the ass to work with during the recording, if what Mick Mars and John Corabi say has any truth to it, which it most likely does. But the band really pulled it off. I think it tops the highly coveted 1994 Self-Titled release with John Corabi, which is a great release in itself. There are a couple of songs that I would not have put on the album but the majority of the songs are excellent. Some of my favorites are Confessions, Glitter, Generation Swine, Afraid, Find Myself, Anybody Out There, Flushed, A Rat Like Me and Beauty. Lowlights include Rocketship, Brandon and Let Us Prey.

Much to my chagrin, I have to give the band a lot of credit, Nikki Sixx especially. While bands such as Metallica were more successful sales wise at staying afloat during the 1990s Alternative Grunge revolution. Motley Crue were far more successful artistically. Metallica are one of the biggest metal bands in the world but their 1990s releases beginning with 1991's The Black Album is largely a bunch of benign, mediocre swill and not worth the material it's printed on. How ironic that a group of hair metal hacks from the 1980s like Motley Crue musically upstaged them. I don't mind experimentation and direction shifts if the end product is solid, Motley's material from 1994-2000 is as solid as they come, often times upstaging their peers and competitors of the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Underrated Release, September 27, 2012
This review is from: Theatre of Pain (Audio CD)
Although far from perfect this album gets way too much guff from both members of the band and a certain percentage of the fans as well. First off, the cover art is awesome and Mick had a Kramer guitar with the cover art on it during this tour which was cool. You can see it in the video for Home Sweet Home. There are some really great songs on this album but I will admit, it could have been better. Stand out tracks are Louder Than Hell, Tonight(We Need A Lover), Use It Or Lose It, City Boy Blues, Keep Your Eye On The Money and of course, Home Sweet Home and their excellent cover of Brownsville Station's Smoking In The Boys Room. My biggest beef with this release is the production. I'm not sure who was more deaf, the band or Tom Werman.

In reality it's probably about a 3 or 4 star album but I have to give it a 5 just because a lot of fans trash talk it, as does Nikki Sixx. I think they tend to listen more with their eyes on this album than their ears.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bunch of Demos and Unfinished Songs That Are Better Than Some Officially Released KISS Songs and Albums, September 26, 2012
This review is from: Rockology (Audio CD)
If you are like me and grew up on 70s and 80s hard rock, this album is for you!!! Eric Carr was Peter Criss' replacement drummer in KISS from 1980 until his death in 1991. The guy was just a true talent that was never given the opportunity to truly shine within the context of the band. It appears he was always allowed just enough input from Gene and Paul to pacify him. Gene challenged Eric when he first joined the band and critiqued the style of what would later become Music From The Elder. Gene told him to write a song if he didn't like the sounds of their direction at the time and he brought in the acoustic guitar part for the song Under The Rose. Which is one of the better songs off an otherwise lackluster album. It's sort of bittersweet as this is a glimpse into "what could have been" Some of Eric's unfinished ideas like "You Drive Me Crazy" for example, are better than a number of songs that were officially released on albums like Asylum, Crazy Nights and Hot In The Shade. Eric was not only a kick ass drummer but a kick ass musician and creative FORCE. This collection of demos is a testament to that and to Eric himself. I wish he was still here kicking our asses with his awesome musicianship and talent!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed, September 12, 2012
This review is from: Kiss (Audio CD)
This had the potential to be the mother of all box sets with rare, hard to find and jewel performances from the hallowed halls of the band's history but Gene and Paul really blew it. They didn't give us the Eddie Kramer demos in their entirety and they mixed the Bell Sound demos from the first album in with a bunch of their previously released studio cuts at the time. They could have put out rare demos, studio and live recordings throughout this box set but instead they got the shanks and blew it in their typical fashion. Very cool photos and packaging but the track listing is just atrocious.
