This man is a worthless blowhard. The only good use for anything coming out of his mouth would be a windmill to collect some energy to turn into useful electricity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough Enuff Z'Nuff, April 10, 2007
This review is from: ? (Audio CD)
I had the lucky fortune of finding this gem in a dollar bin at an odd store in Cleveland. I would not sell you my copy for 20 bucks! What a pleasant surpise to pop this Cd into my player and discover yet another handful of undeniably catchy, cool, great pop songs with flair and passion. "This Guy," "No Place Like Home," "Home Tonight," "How Are You" and the Queen cover "Stone Cold Crazy" are all awesome pieces of songwriting. These are songs you will find yourself playing over and over and over again. Too bad these guys have had their issues with drug abuse. I've met them and seen them in club concerts numerous times here in Cleveland. Another masterpiece guys. Keep up the good work.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Darkness Freaking Rock -- Deal With It, Accept It!!!, November 29, 2005
Wow. Wow! And did I mention WOW!! The Darkness is back to rock your ass off and ready to take control of the world with their sonically spectacular second album, ONE WAY TICKET TO HELL. . . AND BACK. No sophomore slump here. Produced by the legendary Roy Thomas Baker (Queen's producer), the new album is 10 songs of pure delight.

It's all here. Catchy singalong hits in waiting ("Is It Just Me," "Dinner Lady Arms"), crunching hard rockers (the title track and the you gotta hear it to believe it epic "Bald," the world's first ode to reverse pattern male baldness, a truly spine tingling and hair raising rocker -- so to speak). Add good doses of singer Justin Hawkin's trademark hysterical lyrics, wild falsettos, great guitar works and soloes from brothers Justin and Dan Hawkins, plus some sitars, bagpipes and marching drums thrown into the mix. It all sticks and it all works.

More standouts: "Hazel Eyes," a high-pitched ditty about a sweet Scottish lass; "Knockers," a killer groove oriented rocker about the wonder of boobs; a classic power ballad in "Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time;" and the catchy and hilarious as hell "Girlfriend" and "English Country Garden." What an album! Phenomenal! Can't wait to see these guys live on our shores again. Rock and roll is saved. Long live the Darkness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get a little funky now, February 19, 2005
Talk about unforeseen surprises. Primal Scream's GIVE OUT BUT DON'T GIVE UP is a major departure and improvement over their last album, SCREAMEDELICA. A bevy of superstar producers and engineers were hired to help make this album a hip shaking, soul stirring, great slab of funky rock and roll. Tom Dowd (Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and Cream) and George Drakoulias (Black Crowes) took turns twisting the knobs for this delicious platter.

Also contributing on three tracks was Dr. Funkenstein himself, the one and only George Clinton. Primal Scream even let George sing lead vocals on two tracks, the fun-as-all-gitout "Funky Jam" and the super cool title track, "Give Out But Don't Give Up." Not surprisingly, these particular cuts are among the standout tracks on this album.

"Rocks" is a total gem, one of the best retro rock anthems since Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way." Primal Scream singer Bobby Gillespie is blessed with a remarkable set of pipes, offering up a range that suits different material that will remind the listener of everyone from the Rolling Stones to the Parliament to the Black Crowes. Very well done. Great album!

4.0 out of 5 stars Into the great Superunknown, February 19, 2005
This review is from: Superunknown (Audio CD)
One of Seattle's all-time finest may have delivered their finest hour on the ultra-awesome SUPERUNKNOWN. For starters, if "Spoonman" wasn't the most rocking song of 1994, I don't know what was. A true barometer of Soundgarden's emergence to the bigtime is that this album was not merely a collection of 15 hardly differing versions of the same song. Soundgarden had been guilty to this point -- but a small complaint, really -- of sticking to its tried and true melding of grunge chords and old Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin musical leanings.

Tracks like "Black Hole Sun," "Head Down," "Half" and "4th Of July" are what make SUPERUNKNOWN Soundgarden's boldest platter to date. These tunes offer up Beatlesque feelings, Indian passages and other seemingly odd moments, that is, odd only when compared to the more one-dimensional previous Soundgarden albums.

For longtime rockers and supporters, don't worry. "Limo Wreck," "Let Me Drown" and "Kickstand" should smack the flannel right off your chest.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wild exciting ride, February 19, 2005
This review is from: The Downward Spiral (Audio CD)
Depending on whom you ask, Trent Reznor is either a musical genius or just one very lucky guy from Cleveland. The traditional musician may have a hard time accepting the fact Reznor made a killing by feeding his guitars through a Macintosh computer, but the fact remains Reznor was onto on whole new thing for the 1990s. THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL is an expansive, wild-eyed, stimulating, exciting piece of work that makes his debut PRETTY HATE MACHINE sound like child's play.

Reznor delivers a mindblowing album that commands your attention. The title track, complete with demented, drowned out dwarblings, will have you thinking the CD just melted inside your player. Lyrical subjects throughout this album cover extremes bordering on deviant sex and the questioning of God. With song titles like "Heresy," "March Of The Pigs" and "Big Man With A Gun," Nine Inch Nails is anything but pop fodder.

The music here can't merely be labeled industrial, heavy metal, techno or dance, but it is an interesting mix of a little bit of all that. Reznor and his machines of orgasmic grace take you on a ride with more curves than Morgan Fairchild and more dips than Mayberry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bob James comes through again, February 19, 2005
This review is from: Restless (Audio CD)
Jazz fusion keyboard player Bob James took time out from his collaboration with jazz supergroup Fourplay members Lee Ritenour, Nathan East and Harvey Mason to release his first solo album in five years. Many ears only know James as the author of "Angela," more commonly known as the theme song from the classic TV sitcom "Taxi." While that composition is a classic in its own right, there are plenty more sides to this man's talents. RESTLESS does tend to offer up some radio-friendly, more commercial moments for the likes of jazz fusion "the wave" radio stations, but this album is still a well done, very pleasurable listening experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Become a Slave To The Grind, February 4, 2005
This review is from: Slave to the Grind (Audio CD)
Has it really been 14 years since this heavy rock masterpiece came out? I actually first heard this epic via that god forsaken idea called a cassette. Yes kids, we used to buy new albums on crappy cassettes. Before that was vinyl records and some ancient idiocy called 8-tracks and reel-to-reel tapes. Anyway, Skid Row's second album was so surprisingly heavy metalish that it even caught my tape player offguard that wonderful day in 1991. I popped in the first song, "Monkey Business," and within one patented Sebastian Bach scream, the tape was eaten. With a little reconstructive surgery, the tape was eventually salvaged and so was my hope for the future of rock and roll in America.

Skid Row could have easily followed the fool-proof corporate path on SLAVE TO THE GRIND by writing an album's worth of friendly rewrites of "I Remember You" and "18 And Life," but instead the New Jersey rockers (plus Canadian born lead singer/screamer/entertainer Sebastian Bach) dug deep inside themselves to unleash a 12-song lead pedal to the heavy metal masterpiece. Reportedly, Atlantic Records executives were nervous as hell about the newfound heavier direction of SLAVE TO THE GRIND at the time. When the album debuted at #1 in the country, it was obvious the original fans were happy. And so too were the most ardent of Metallica fans. The second album had that much bite to it.

Opener "Monkey Business" has an Aerosmith meets Metallica groove and intensity. Following in wealthy and ripping abundance are the wicked title track "Slave To The Grind," "Psycho Love" and "The Threat." The band even squeezed in a few radio-hopeful bit slower tempoed songs, the best of the bunch being the peculiarly-titled "Quicksand Jesus," but even these types of tracks were delivered in an unorthodox rocking manner, the band sprinkling in some not so subtle splashes of power.

Skid Row was one of the heaviest and most rocking of all the 1980s and 1990s hair metal bands. What a glorious and partying time it was. Glad I was there and sorry all you youngens missed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some real good real rock and roll. . . for real, February 4, 2005
This review is from: Hands of Faith (Audio CD)
Let's just cut to the chase, folks. Circle Of Soul's HANDS OF FAITH was one of the hottest rock albums of 1991. Yet today, good luck even finding a copy in the cutout bins of your favorite used record stores. This album smokes from beginning to end, and still holds up sounding fresh and exciting to this day. Unfortunately, grunge killed the rock star in 1991.

Circle Of Soul was both a musician's and fan's rock band. The wonderfully eclectic quartet was well versed in all facets of its work -- instrumentation abilities, lyrics, direction and conviction. Circle Of Soul, like King's X, Faith No More, Lenny Kravitz, Dan Reed Network and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, though sounding unlike these other bands, is (was?) the real thing.

The closest genre categorization would be a funk rock band, but even that's not totally fair. Though the band could funk it up with the best of them ("Ghetto Grind," "Mission Boogie"), they could also flat-out rock your ass off (the utterly killer "War," "Shattered Faith," "Hard In The City"), and then turn around and make you whimper with the soulful sadness of a beautiful ballad like "One Kiss." Great stuff, highly recommended. Look for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars David Coverdale and Jimmy Page -- not a bad idea, February 3, 2005
This review is from: Coverdale / Page (Audio CD)
Wow! Wow! And did I say wow! What else can you say about the historic collaboration between the voice of Whitesnake and the guitar of Led Zeppelin. David Coverdale and Jimmy Page in the same band is almost too good to be true. But believe it and be thankful. After you give this disc a few spins, the goose bumps will take a while to settle down. The majority of the album is some hot and exciting stuff.

In one corner we have perhaps the greatest voice in the history of rock and roll in Coverdale. Coupled with the exciting guitar histrionics of Page, you might as well have Led Zeppelin Mach 2. I wonder what Robert Plant thought of this collaboration? Before hooking up with each other, Coverdale and Page were both on musical creativity losing streaks. Latter day Whitesnake was full of duds and Page wasn't making any new waves. Knowing this, it came as an absolute treasure to see both men bust out of their musical slumps on Coverdale/Page.

Page has laid down some of his most inspired, fascinating and hard rocking guitar work since early Zeppelin. Coverdale/Page simply blows away Page's ill-fated collaboration with Paul Rodgers in the Firm. Additionally, Coverdale bid adieu to the corporate leaning and image conscious ways of latter day Whitesnake to forge new frontiers with Page. Both men came out clawing and fighting on this thrilling one-off project.

First single "Pride And Joy" unabashedly recalls the mighty Zeppelin, but then, is there anything really wrong with that? Let's see. Page used to be in Zeppelin and Coverdale can pull off the occasional Plant impersonation. "Pride And Joy" is a blast of fresh air, and absolute killer rocker. You gotta love how the elegantly sly Coverdale whispers "so I can see where I'm going, baby." Instant classic.

Page plays it fairly straight on the barnburning "Feeling Hot," an arena rock anthem if ever there was one. Coverdale pulls off some of his best vocal gymnastics, complete with his trademark sexual wont. The master indeed. "Absolution Blues" is the album's epic tour de force. Page's out of this world wailing introduction to the song is his most mind blowing drama since the violin bow escapades of "The Song Remains The Same." When "Absolution Blues" kicks into overdrive, Coverdale dips into his vast vocal registers for a phrasing akin to this "Burn" days in Deep Purple. Only two living legends like Coverdale and Page could pull off something this wickedly good.
