Latest Reviews

Maverick - 2018 Cold Star Dancer
The boys from Belfast have gone to a new level with their third album 'Cold Star Dancer'. Superb melodic metal done the Irish way.
Perfect Plan - 2018 All Rise
Perfect Plan could have delivered one of the better albums for 2018 as early as April.
Thundermother - 2018 Thundermother
I have quite a soft spot for these Swedish female rockers. Their last album we reviewed back in 2015 was called 'Road Fever'. As I wrote in my previous article, I'll repeat it again: it's time to 'Discover the Mother!'
Grand Design - 2018 Viva La Paradise
Their Def Leppard style has proved a popular draw, and though the vocals of main-man Pelle Saether might be a bit of an acquired taste, they must be doing something right in their near-decade long career.
Issa - 2018 Run With The Pack
Fans of Issa's previous work will enjoy this too no doubt. Good to see her back though, but whether you are inclined to break out the running shoes and join the pack might be one step too far after listening to this.
Odyssey Desperado - 2018 Don't Miss The Sunset
Odyssey Desperado is a melodic hard rock project started by Odysseas Karapolitis in 2014 in Athens, Greece. It's four years in the making and well worth a shout.
American Tears - 2018 Hard Core
The marketing for this album leading up to its release is very misleading. Quite why Mark Mangold is using the American Tears name when he's the only one participating is a strange case of identity.
Stalker - 2017 Shadow Of The Sword
A rare thing indeed. Heavy metal from the shakey isles of NZ. Stalker evoke the likes of early Slayer, Exciter and Exodus without breaking a sweat.
Finn, Tim - 1983 Escapade
Here's the second of the famous Finn brothers. Neil is well known from his Split Enz and Crowded House feats, but brother Tim is also a tour de force.
Wilde, Kim - 2018 Here Come The Aliens
Kim Wilde is in good form here, and has discovered a recipe that works for her. It's a vampish display, not quite as outrageous as Swedish vixen Erika, but still good enough to capture your senses, whether aural or visual.
McIan, Peter - 1980 Playing Near The Edge
This is Peter McIan's sole record over an extensive musical career as musician, engineer and producer. You'll remember his name from hsi efforts with Men At Work and The City.
Money, Eddie - 1982 No Control
Compared to Eddie's previous albums, I found this one to be well centered in the radio friendly/AOR zone, though it does have its up's and downs.
