Editorial Review

This may be his first album in over a decade, but veteran Detroit rock icon Bob Seger shows he's lost none of his signature songwriting chops, sense of blue collar yearning or distinctive vocal prowess during his record biz sabbatical. Rather than reinvent himself for a turbulent marketplace that's regressed from alt.rock to teeny-pop in his absence, Seger stays largely true to his roots here. The album's Nashville recording locale and Seger's winning duet with Patti Loveless on "The Answer's in the Question" reaffirm how much the lines between roots rock and contemporary country have blurred while he was on the sidelines, a notion that's underscored on Seger's raucous turn with fellow Motor City native Kid Rock on their cover of Vince Gill's "Real Mean Bottle." Yet forceful ballads like "Wait For Me" and "Won't Stop" show there's still gold to be mined in the vein of the singer's epochal '70s work, while "Wreck This Heart" rocks admirably and the melancholy closer "The Long Goodbye" showcases Seger as accomplished one man band. All in all a compelling musical argument for the notion that Read more

I grew up in Detroit.I saw Bob Seger about a gajillion times with various bands.He rocked and we loved it, and we loved him.
5-0 out of 5 stars Buy It Now!
This is his best work since the seventies. A case could be made for this being his best disc ever. Don't waste your time, just order it. If you have any Seger CDs or records that you like, you are going to love this one. I haven't been as taken with a Seger disc since Beautiful Loser (okay, Night Moves and Stranger in Town are pretty much awesome). No matter which one is your favorite, order this one because it will be one of your favorites after the first listen.

4-0 out of 5 stars good old time rock and roll
Welcome back, Bob! It's been too long. And he didn't go & change things up on this album. It's classic rock. If you liked his previous stuff, you should like this new album. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Audioslave
Being a lover of great music, including the political genre of RATM as alot of you like to refer them as, and also Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog, and loving AudioSlave so much because of the devout attention they pay to the fact that they are a band and no one is going to do a solo CD, this CD jumped out as a fantastic result of guys loving what they do, collaborating in that and wanting to test the spiritual, blues, funk and rock envelope.Put some good headphones on, adjust your bass, treble, fade, etc. and listen to the words, the bassline, the drumbeat and the fact that without having to shove it down your throat or make a point, they CAN make you think. Rock snobs, do not apply.Cornell's voice is without a doubt at its best and he seems happy and content.

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars because there aren't 6
I am so glad that Apple finally has gapless playback in iTunes 7.0 because I can finally hear this album in the way it is intended: no gaps and seamless segue between songs. I will have to buy one of the new iPods to get the same effect mobiile-wise.
5-0 out of 5 stars "Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way"
'Dark Side of the Moon' marks the point where Pink Floyd were catapulted from being a decent size rock/psychadelic band with a healthy following, into the realms of musical immortality. This album is an astonishing and groundbreaking achievement in terms of both its musical, and lyrical content.
5-0 out of 5 stars I wish I could give this less than 5 stars, but...
it's too damn good.Dark Side of the Moon, perhaps more so than any other album in rock and roll history, tends to be liked because of a certain cool factor (possibly tied with Nevermind and Zeppelin IV).Every stoner and wannabe stoner will put this in their top 5 and say things like "It's a trip,maaaaan", while making to sure to wear a Dark Side T-shirt to let everybody know they have cool status.Nevertheless, I must give credit where it is due, and this truly is one of the most innovative and pleasing works of the past 50 years.In fact, the only Pink Floyd album that tops it IMO is The Wall, which I would rank as the single greatest album of all time.

Editorial Review

Craig Finn loves books and bars. It's not just that he pinched the title of he Hold Steady's third album from the ultimate manual for boozehounds, Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" ("Boys and Girls in America have such a sad time together"), but that every leery line of every song is crammed with the wayward poetry and passion of someone who is more familiar with the bottom of a whiskey glass than the sun. Thanks to his raucous Brooklyn band, his music--louder than its predecessors this time, with a few more ballads--also happens to make a great soundtrack for an all-night bender where broken-hearts and broken bottles become one.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars nauseating
if i could give this music negative stars i would. no kidding i got nauseous listening to this band. i seriously was on the verge of losing my lunch as one song led into the next and i headed straight to the bathroom after being tortured by them all. a hard-to-believe reaction, i know -- i was wondering myself how it was possible to get physically sickened by a cd, but then i figured it out: it just goes in circles and circles and circles and circles and circles and circles and circles. HOLD STEADY? i WISH! it's TORTUROUS. on top of having a boring-as-hell voice, vocally this guy "sings" the SAME 2 or 3-note "melodies" for every song. wtf? + musicwise it's the same level of Abysmally Boring and Uninventive -- and let me repeat -- CIRCLES. the "band" does the exactly the same "music" for EVERY song. how can anyone say good things about these guys??? bravo to the other two reviewers who gave them one star. i'm happy to see that at least two people in the world have ears. it's astounding to me that crap like this gets recorded. even more astounding that crap like this generates fans.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for Hold Steady beginners
Okay, I didn't really care for Hold Steady's previous album, "Separation Sundays."It had great lyrics, but the musical side was lackluster and the lyrics, though the saving grace, were often hard to decipher."Boys and Girls in America" is, however, excellent.The lyrics maintain the same quality, and the musical end has improved drastically.If you've heard a little of the Hold Steady and don't get the appeal, check out this album.Or, if you're looking for a jump-off point, this is it.If you like this album, then you should look into "Separation Sundays," but I would advise going with this one first.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's always entertaining....
Being an Eastsider a stone's throw from Sweet Payne Ave., I am once again thrilled to know solidarity with a (at one time local) band that makes room for a lot of life in their music--not just romantic idealism and not just defeatist nihilism--they tend to capture pieces of life's dialectic nature, which is nice, nice: Hope/Despair, Progress/Setback, Connection/Isolation--life that always ends in death, but death that has at least lost its sting.The Hold Steady continue to be who they are, you may or may not like them, but it is hard to judge or dismiss something this unapologetically unique.The more you demand likeability from music the less you'll probably like The Holdsteady--not because they aren't likeable, but because you'd be missing the point.This album is good alone and better when put in its narrative context (following Almost Killed Me and Sep. Sunday).I was pleased to get an update on the messed up teenage lives of Holly et al.And was especially glad to hear something resembling a ballad or two (First Night, Citrus, Arms and Hearts), Crucifixion Cruise got me wanting more of that.If you're not into or can't meet the demands of the recorded poetic/talk lyrics of an Ivy League grad, then I beseech you to see The Hold Steady in concert--I've been three times and can testify that what might be lacking in a snapshot recording is made up in the storytelling energy of the moment--stories are meant to be told not recorded after all. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Boring and tedious...
Producer Kevin Shirley accepts the fact that Steve Harris calls all the cards in the band and we all testified the "high" production values utilized by Steve Harris when he produced the band in "X-Factor" and "Virutal XI"... So, since "Brave New World" produciton is muddled, really bad and it never improves.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wow
I was hoping for a good return by the veterns. I was pleased and beyond. Dance of Death was an average album. It had a few moments but nothing compared to this cd. The rich melodies and twin guitar use is awesome.Yes the production isn't as clean as it could be. But that didn't hamper it to much for me. I know people are going to compare this to anything they have done in the past and say that (killers, number of the beast 7 son ..etc) is better. Well the 80's was the metal age, but old bands can still write good material. True some of it might get recycled but isn't that what all music becomes? Riff's are recycled or manipulated a little.

The Beatles last album just happens to be their best. Only the Beatles could get together one last time, dispite all the personal acrimony and substance abuse, and deliver the ultimate timeless swan song.
5-0 out of 5 stars plus one more star if you please.
All I can tell you is that this is the way a swansong SHOULD sound.Even though they had major issues amongst each other at this time,they along with producer George Martin put out one hell of an album.This time around George Harrison came up with two of his best in "Something" and (my favorite song on the album) "Here Comes The Sun".Although John's heart wasn't truly in it,he still contributed "Come Together" and "She's So Heavy".Both songs are John Lennon classics .Paul's major additives were the infamous second side/second half medley,and a McCartney classic in "You Never Give Me Your Money" and it's reprise during the medley.It's mind boggling how a group can evolve from "I Want To Hold Your Hand" to "Here Comes The Sun" in six years.

Better known as the "White Album," this was meant to be the record that brought them back to earth after three years of studio experimentation. Instead, it took them all over the place, continuing to burst the envelope of pop music. Lennon and McCartney were still at the height of their powers, with Lennon in particular growing into one of rock's towering figures. But even McCartney could still rock, and the amazement on "Helter Skelter" was that he had vocal cords at the end. From Beach Boys knock-offs to reggae and to the unknown ("Revolution #9"), this has it all. Some records have Read more

Hi, my name's Joao, I have heard anything by this group from Starclub in Hamburg sessions to Twickenham outtakes and beyond to the Ringo Rotogravure and Wings @ the speed of sound and although this bunch is familiar for burning holes in people's pockets with their trite melodies (i would suggest maladies) and nonexistant depth in lyrics (think: 'I once had a girl', 'one to three four can I have a little more' and for instance 'because you're sweet and lovely girl I love you').
5-0 out of 5 stars The greatest album from the greatest band
If I were trapped on a deserted island for eternity and could only have one album with me to pass the time, it would be the White Album. It is the most diverse, interesting and well crafted album ever made. The songs range from rock to country to surfer rock to heavy metal to folk to camp to progressive to the just plain weird. The unparelled songwriting genius of Lennon and McCartney is well on display here as is there obvious differences in style. Harrison also emerges on the White Album and showcases his best song ever "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Some may point to "Sgt Pepper" as the Beatles crowning achievement, I point directly and emphatically to the White Album.

Even if you don't agree with Neil Young's politics, you can't help but be daunted by the intersection of his genius and ire on his second album in less than seven months. It is the very rare artist who is able to channel indignation and moral disgust in such a coherent and forceful way--without sacrificing any of the vivid imagery, passion, or the high level of musicality that we have come to expect from him over the past four decades. But that's not what elevates this album: it's his pure, naked, visceral reaction to the Bush administration's foreign policy, building on a canon of outrage that he began with 1970's "Ohio," penned in the wake of the Kent State student deaths. But here he goes one better, filling in the lines that he began to draw on 2003's Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I kneel to Neil.
This is one Neil Young album that the majority of people will judge before they even hear it. Meaning, any anti-Bush, pro-USA, Neil fan will enjoy it. For the most part that's probably true. It is mostly track after track of ripping apart the Bush administration and war, yet also maintaining a sense of hope and love for the country. Lyrically that's what it is. Musically I find it's similar to his mid-90's album "Mirror Ball". It's rocking Neil for the most part, and appropriate for the topics. Not every song is a winner, but I really like the tracks "The Restless Consumer", "Let's Impeach The President", and "Lookin' For A Leader". Subtle? Not really, but I like it.

5-0 out of 5 stars No throwaway songs here
When I read that the album was hastily put together I expected it to be rough around the edges. Electic Neil always sounds that way to me anyway. Part of the charm. What I did't expect was how musical it would be nor the depth of the lyrics. Surely some of his best work. Pretty amazing for an aging hippie of 61. Makes you wonder how good he'll be when he's 81.

tool is weird because it takes all the sounds I was alredy hearing in my head and is able to make it into a song. when I am coming down,(thanx hofman) that whole whine changing pitch is alredy in my head before I even herd this song. so Its getting a chance to reveb in my head. You dont just listine to it. there is an interaction there. it also amazes me how they get that sound. you can challange every band to make new material and you still wont be able to get that sound and it just wont happen. I also like when they try to put tool in a genre. tool should be its own classifacation until further justifacation on this revelation and plausible hesitation w/o retaliation or condemnation............tion

4-0 out of 5 stars Not the best from Tool, but still leagues ahead of anyone else...
Tool are, of course, one of the greatest bands on the planet, and are therefore held to a higher standard than other ordinary 'rock groups'. I think its safe to say they've achieved cult status in the course of their career, and each new release is examined by the legions of Tool freaks like some mysterious artefact discovered on a distant planet. 10,000 days was highly anticipated (to put it mildly), and took its own sweet time getting here. Like many other Tool fans, I bought it immediately upon its release, and... was not disppointed. It doesn't cut as mercilessly as Lateralus, but after repeated listenings, I feel I am only beginning to penetrate its mysteries. A measure of its brilliance when most rock albums these days grow tired within a week or two. The band are incredible on this thing, particularly the guitarist, Adam Jones, who we can now consider as the leading master of the instrument. Maynard is Maynard, and does his thing like only he can. The songs are long, yes, but so what? A band this great needs room to explore and that's exactly what they do, taking us along for a wild ride in the process. Although it doesn't quite reach the heights of Lateralus (what does?) 10,000 Days is a fantastic album (in a really cool package) and no Tool fan will be disappointed. The only niggle I have is that there is a bit of filler on the album which shouldn't be there. Not after five years of navel-gazing and rumination (or were they actually working on their tans on the beaches of Majorca?). If there were two more great songs here instead of the noodling bits, this album would get 5 stars, no problemo. Let's just pray the next one comes a bit quicker... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Cornerstone Of All That Came Behind It
My title says it all.As a music historian, the release of this album is one of my top 10 moments in the history of recorded music, because it did something that only a handful of other albums ever did - it changed the entire industry.Until 1967, albums by "youth-oriented" artists were rarely more than collections of singles and never seemed to have much flow or continuity - in other words, nothing more than miniature greatest hits collections.But on June 1 of 1967, the Beatles changed everything.Other artists were expanding their horizons as well - the Beach Boys had released Pet Sounds, a bold experiment of sounds mixed with songwriting we had never realized was possible from a young artist.But the mammoth success of Sergeant Pepper would make other albums like this marketable - and it would lead to other recording stars to become artists as much as entertainers.
1-0 out of 5 stars or better, none!
One star is waaaaaaaaaaaay too much for this funny fart CD,
1-0 out of 5 stars yes, you read right: ONE star
Hi dear muzak lovers, yes, you read right: ONE star for this CD is ab-so-lutely enough, no actually it is over the top for try listening to this junk without dangerous mind-altering substatiaries and you're left out in the cold. NO ONE should even dare to attempt to digest this collection of laughable concoctions like Fixin' a Whole (drug related), She's leaving her home (because of a drug habit) and Within and without you (sexual lust caused by bad trip), Good morning (a wake up call to use drugs), LSD (need I say even more????)

Editorial Review

Rod Stewart's career has been subject to so many twists that a single-disc overview is somehow both appealingly broad and inadequate to the task of tracing all those zigzags. From beloved rocker of the first order to disco dilettante to pop crooner, Stewart's career has presented challenges to fans who may have been charmed by the rollickingly randy "Maggie May" and bemused by the alarmingly narcissistic "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" This 16-song retrospective touches all the bases without delving deeply into any era. The selections aren't arranged sequentially and the booklet is much more generous with vintage photos than album credits. This best-of collection is clearly aimed at the casual fan, but no album that presents Rod the Mod gems "Downtown Train," "You Wear It Well," and "Reason to Believe" one after another is a throwaway.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Voice Is What Makes It Work
Rod Stewart's penchant for crossing to and from and back through all categories of rock-pop music makes it often hard to define exactly where he fits into all this. The one undeniable constant is his raspy voice that seems to work for him with great affection and appeal. His great versatility to utilize his voice so surreptitiously is a real talent. One CD cannot represent an entire career but it can give us snippets here and there where his distinctive and alluring voice has taken him and us.

5-0 out of 5 stars At his Very Best
I once owned this CD and some how lost or misplaced it. My CD player has not been the same without it. I plan to purchase another of it ASAP

5-0 out of 5 stars AMAZING
Im not a female and im in love with Rod Stewart. His music. All of it is just amazing. His voice never gets old, every song is so unique and their all fun songs and their all classics. The depth of songs like Young Turks and My Heart Cant Tell You No is amazing. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Covers the basics, but Legacy: The Absolute Best is a better comp
Okay, don't get me wrong, I love the Doors - they made some of the greatest American music (along with Dylan and the Velvet Underground) during the British Invasion days, and their music has not dated in the least. And this two-disc, nineteen-track comp does do a good job of rounding up the bare essentials (Light My Fire, Break On Through, The End, Love Me Two Times, The Unknown Soldier, Five to One, Hello I Love You, Touch Me, Roadhouse Blues, Riders on the Storm, L.A. Woman), it's missing some very important songs, most notably Peace Frog (an inexcusable omission), plus Soul Kitchen, Not to Touch the Earth, Moonlight Drive, Twentieth Century Fox, Back Door Man and a few other good ones that managed to make it on Legacy: The Absolute Best. And why Alabama Song was included in the place of any of the above songs is simply inexcusable - in my mind, that's one of the group's weaker songs (along with Touch Me, while I'm ranting). That said, it's not at all a bad way at all to get into the Doors, and tends to be less expensive than Legacy. So if you need the absolute basics, and nothing more, this would be a good way to get them in one fell swoop. But if you want to dig a bit deeper, that's what Legacy's for.

2-0 out of 5 stars For your own good, please don't buy this!
This two disc set just barely brushes the surface of what the Doors have to offer.Here are some awesome, essential Doors songs you'll be missing out on, just to name a few:
1-0 out of 5 stars A papier mache hero.
The "Lizard King" was a hero of the "counterculture" until 3/1/1969.Then, he turned into a cowering wimp!!!When it came to assaulting traditional American values, the "Lizard King" was awesome.See: the Ed Sullivan Show, the Singer Bowl riot, his Oedipal days at the Whiskey, etc.However, when the powers that be finally decided to push back, the "Lizard King" became a professional victim-a misunderstood artist who simply had "something to say."He whined about how everyone was out to get him.That's why the "conterculture" failed.They were good at pushing, but, when it came to pushing back, they were exposed for what they were: a bunch of bed-wetters.Thirty-eight years on, it's no surprise that America never "broke on through."Hey Ray, John, and Robbie: your fearless leader turned into a gutless turd!!! ...

Editorial Review

He's sold millions of albums, filled arenas, and hobnobbed with George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison, but Tom Petty's driving heartland rock has often been taken for granted by the same critics who hail John Mellencamp as a genius. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect!!!!
Now this is one of if not the best greatest hits album ever made. Tom Petty is a very underrated artist and this album shows how great he was and is. From his first album untill today Tom Petty is one of the best rockers out there. Every song here is a classic and can be listened to over and over. Must have for anyone who likes music. Tom Petty rocks!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars It was because of the oldies, but goodies
I feel that after Petty released "Full Moon Fever". and hung around with the rest of the Travelling Willburys he lost some of the moxie that his albums had. There were some rather good nuggets left off here like "Shadow Of A Doubt", "Thing About You", and "Letting You Go". I felt the two new songs on here are split down the middle. "Mary Jane's Last Dance" is pathetic, and last desparate act. However, "Somthing In The Air" is a respectable cover of the Thunderclap Newman song from 1969, and in some ways even better. "Mary Jane" though was one of the horrible songs I had to endure listening to the first few months that I moved down to Florida. The oldies saved this from a bad rating.
5-0 out of 5 stars Everyone who loves music should own this
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Greatest Hits captures just that from their debut in 1976 right up until 1993, before they moved to the Warner label. Around the time of its release, the single "Mary Janes Last Dance" was a huge worldwide smash and that song, and a cover of the old classic Thunderclap Newman "Something In The Air" which was a humble hit in England complemented most of their best and well known hits at the time.

This review will begin by quoting from what I found to be the most helpful and entertaining reviews written up until this point.I will then offer a few thoughts of mine on the album.The quotes:
3-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre at best.
You know why Trivium are the NEW Metallica??? BECAUSE THEY RIP THEM OFF IN EVERY ASPECT THEY CAN...
3-0 out of 5 stars I like it, but not as much as Ascendancy
I'd give The Crusade a 3.5 star rating (I'd give Ascendancy 4.5...I love that record).I like The Crusade a lot, but it took a few listens to grow on me.It's an entertaining listen with solid riffs and nice leads and solos.Some of the lyrics are good, some not so...I do appreciate the obvious political/spcial themes of some of the tracks.I do like the singing, as I'm an old school metal fan, and I don't consider it a sell-out as many have called it.However, I got to know Trivium through Ascendancy, and later Ember to Inferno, and the change on The Crusade kind of threw me for a loop even though I knew before hearing the album this was the direction they were taking.I used to hate the screaming and Ascendancy was one of the records that finally got me to "get over it."lolAnyway, this is a good record with obvious Metallica, Megadeth and Iron Maiden influence on it.If you like metal without the screaming, this is definitely worth picking up. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Regarding "Honest Opinion"
Amazon's claim that these are snippets of some of the songs from a larger LP, ARE CORRECT. I give this three stars just as a middle grade / to not sway the other reviews, but FWIW the actual LP will be released on Halloween. This is not the full album that people have heard.

4-0 out of 5 stars Vintage WHO....but no Entwistle or Daltrey "B" side song...
This is THE WHO in 2006. Finally after what is left of the band plus 4 some superb musicians like Pino Palladino, Zack Starkey, Simon Townshend and John "Rabbit" Bundrick, entered the studio with Pete Townshend not only writing all the songs but producing and mixin, we have THE WHO first taste of their complete new collection of songs since 1982 "IT S' HARD", a cd with great songs and production but with a wrong runnin order (the same problem that "Who are You" had). THE WHO began recording this cd in 2002 when John Entwistle was still alive. They practice 3 songs and released two on "NOW and THEN" another "greatest hits" CD with two SIMON TOWNSHEND produced songs: "REAL GOOD LOOKING BOY" (a tribute to Elvis and Pete himself), and the great tribute song to John Entwistle "OLD RED WINE". They did practice a Roger Daltrey song called "CERTIFIED ROSE" that remains unreleased in the best of WHO tradition. JOHN ENTWISTLE recorded many songs on his own for this proyect but did not gave to Roger and Pete, as STEVE LUONGO said on an interview...and the sad thing is that neither Roger or Pete took the time to ask for them in order to hear them.
4-0 out of 5 stars Tommy's Grandparents
Pete Townshend didn't just invent the rock opera, but also the "mini opera" when he wrote "A Quick One While He's Away", which Pete often referred to in early performances as "Tommy's Parents".Well, Wire and Glass could be "Tommy's Grandparents" because this rich song cycle delves deeply into Townshend's familiar semi-autobiographical world which will be instantly recognizable to any Who fan.From the self-confessional "They Made My Dreams Come True" which echoes the Cincinnati tragedy ("people died when I performed") and the Isle of Wight ("and the band played on until the dawn") to the powerful Mirror Door which revisits Tommy and the Mirror in so many ways, Wire and Glass proves that while Daltrey's voice may be fading, Pete Townshend is still the best songwriter of his or any other generation.To be fair, like any Who material, Wire and Glass works best on the stage, so be sure it see it live if and when you have the chance. ...

Editorial Review

The notion that rock must perpetually break new ground and reinvent itself is the odious legacy of 10 too many years of rock-crit navel gazing, and one that young Australian power trio Wolfmother stands gleefully on its head with their effusive debut. Hardly surprising to find a new generation's reaction to a decade of shoe-gazing alternative rock angst to be a return to the guilty pleasures of unabashed, blues-based stadium rock--even if they seem unsure whether they're channeling the early Zep scream 'n' sludge frenzy of the single "Woman" or adopting The White Stripes' stripped-down ethos on "Apple Tree" and elsewhere. They bravely mix suspect '70s lyrical thematics ("White Unicorn," "Where Eagles Have Been," "Tales") with usual suspects like Sabbath ("Dimension"), stir in the neo-prog of "Colossal," "Witchcraft," and "Tales," (the latter complete with Tull-savvy flute break), then toast Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age on "Mind's Eye" and elsewhere. Their frightfully funk-challenged "Love Train" gets promptly derailed, making one yearn for a hit of Eagles of Death Metal for relief, but its wreckage only proves how far Wolfmother is willing to push the envelope in forging their often intoxicating evocation of the past as future.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid but not Unified
Wolfmother creates genuinely good music on their self-titled debut. Many of the songs are catchy and throwbacks to the great classic rock artists of the 70's and 80's. Therein lies the only problem with this album. All the songs may have well been recorded by different artists. The band, instead of using their own style, seems to have paid homage to a different band in each of their songs. I am, however, optimistic that with future releases the band will find their own style. The instrumentation is great, and the vocals are excellent. Buy it for it's odd neo-nostalgia to the great artists of the 70's, and buy it to discover an emerging new band.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre garage band tries to cash out from '70s hard rock
This is simply bogawful. Annoying vocals (another Robert Plant wannabe --- I've lost count already!) coupled with substandard, boring and repetitive riffs played by a garage band who struck a record label deal.Sorry, but these rookies are just too lame and pretentious to compare them to any hard rock band who played in the '70s.
5-0 out of 5 stars Sabbath returns!!
This is like early Black Sabbath for the 21st Century, only lacks Tony Iomis soaring guitar solos.If you loved Iron Man, and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, this is the album for you.Check out the website too, very cool.The tracks will grow on you, but Witchcraft and Joker and the Thief really stand out. ...
