There are a lot of "should have made it" stories from the 1980s, but one that really stands out is the American melodic rock band Axe. If you remember them at all, it's probably from their one hit - 1982's "Rock n' Roll Party in the Streets." Aside from that, the band never really caught on, despite they fact that their hard rocking (yet always melodic) sound was tailor made for rock radio in the `80s. Maybe their heavy metal band name and album covers were at odds with their overall sound?

Whatever the reason, Axe remains one of the more overlooked bands from the `80s rock scene. Now, Cleopatra/Deadline has given us an excuse to revisit Axe's back catalogue with Axeology, a two-disc retrospective that spans the band's career from 1979 though 2001. There are 36 songs total - six from 1979's Axe, six from 1980's Living on the Edge, seven from 1982's Offering, six from 1983's Nemesis, five from 1996's Five and four from their 2000 album The Crown. Rounding out the collection is a pair of previously unreleased `80s era songs - "Bad Sometimes" and "No Heroes."

On paper, Axeology is the perfect Axe anthology. It not only covers their better known albums, but you get a hefty chunk of their long out of print first two albums as well as some of their later material. Honestly, the remastered versions of the Axe and Living on the Edge material alone is probably worth the price of admission. The downside is that the songs from Nemesis and Offering are not the original album tracks. They're all rerecorded versions done specifically for this compilation. They sound good, but it's not the same as having the original songs.

This product was not what I expected when I received it. I hate anthologies that do not contain original studio recordings. If you like "Rock and Roll Party in the Streets", don't bother getting this cd. They ruined the song by redoing it in 1997. The '81 version is much better.

I bought this because it was too difficult/expensive to replace my cassettes of Offering and Nemesis with CD's that are out of print. Although the best songs from those two discs are here, they are all more modern re-recordings and lose something from the originals. The earlier material (pre Offering) is mostly forgettable. The post Nemesis material has its moments.

This is a true anthology of a band that has had a tough time.
The music reflects their struggles but it gets better in the second part. I just wish they would do a live album and expand on Battles.

Brad Banhagel is a good friend. We met Brad and then became acquainted with the music of Axe. Nice old time long songs with the style of Gary Moore or Government mule.

As a diehard Axe fan for 30 years, this collection is definitely worth the money. Been waiting an awful long time for something like this. Includes original recordings of the first 2 and last 2 albums, plus re-recordings of the favorite and poplular tracks from Offering and Nemesis, which adds a little more oomph and quality to all of them overall. But I still love the original recording of Rock N' Roll Party...Streets, my all-time favorite Axe song, primarily since that's the version and sound I've been jamming on since the 80's. Superb collection nonetheless. And comes highly recommended for any Axe fan.
