A7X & their new sound....,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hail to the King (Deluxe CD+MP3) (Audio CD)
I am not your average A7X fan, until a few years ago I had not even heard of them. Then one day, visiting the grandchildren I was asked to play a "rock band" type of game, since my ability with instruments was little I was handed the microphone. My introduction too A7X was "Afterlife"....I was hooked. I have listened too and enjoyed most of their material. I make a habit of listening to the entire album, niot just the "hits"....and with new albums I find it almost mandatory to give it three listens before I make a decision.....The first time I heard "Hali to the King" (single) I really didn't care for it, now I really enjoy it. On my first go around with the entire album I was somewhat displeased. My second time around I grew to like it, on my third go around I am a fan. As a 54 year old, classic rock fan, I highly endorse this album.
After listening to this cd multiple times I have come too really like a couple of the "ballards" Crimson Day and Acid Rain are stand outs......
