ZZ Top - Fandango! (1975)

My Ratings: 76.468
Rank: 334 (out of 1099)

Texas Blues

Best Song: Tush

4th studio album by ZZ Top starts off with 3 tracks recorded live in New Orleans. A couple great songs on this LP.... Who said ZZ Top was a 80's band.... ?

Blondie - Blondie (1976)

My Ratings: 69.674
Rank: 866 (out of 1100)

New Wave

Best Song: Rip Her To Shreds

Debut album by Blondie. It was OK but I was expecting something a little bit harder... I'll probably have to listen to their 1978 album....

Nazareth - Hair of the Dog (original US tracking 1975)

My Ratings: 80.105
Rank: 180 (out of 1101)

Hard Rock

Best Song: Changin Times

Never listened to Nazareth and the only song that I knew they sang was the title track to this album so I was surprised to learn today that they sang "Love Hurts". Very solid album. Loved the vocals and the guitar playing....

Possessed - Exploration (1971)

My Ratings: 71.537
Rank: 745 (out of 1103)

Psychedelic Rock

Best Song: Exploration Pt. 2 [73.6]

This is NOT the death metal band that I love with the same name but a late 60's early 70's phsychedelic pre-prog metal band. My friend told me about this band as well as their story. This is their only album but they probably never heard it as it was released after a tragic car accident that took the lives of the band members.

I'm going to stay in the year 2018 and was really surprised to find this one...

Pestilence - Hadeon (2018)

My Ratings: 82.737
Rank: 111 (out of 1105)

Death Metal

Best Song: Discarnate Entity [88.0] .... #3 in my Pestilence Discography

Wow, I thought Pestilence was long gone but out of the blue we get a new one and boy it goes back to the raw sounds. This one already is my 2nd favorite Pestilence album behind the classic "Testimony of the Ancients".

Continuing with newer stuff...

Act of Defiance - Old Scars, New Wounds (2017)

My Ratings: 72.928
Rank: 604 (out of 1106)

Technical Death/Thrash-Speed Metal

Best Song: Molten Core [75.0]

Half the band is made up of ex-Megadeth members. I was hoping for a more thrash feel than what it had. Not that bad but nothing great....

Judas Priest - Firepower (2018)

My Ratings: 76.776
Rank: 318 (out of 1108)

Heavy Metal

Best Song: Evil Never Dies [86.0]

18th Judas Priest album, not too shabby, the first half is better than the 2nd. Halford can still rip it... In my opinion, it is middle of the pack of the Priest discography....

Avatar - Avatar Country (2018)

My Ratings: 79.401
Rank: 199 (out of 1110)

Avante-Garde Metal

Best Song: Legend of the King [86.0]

Avatar was a melodic death metal band which has changed it sound to cover more genre's. I heard a song by them today on Music Choice and thought it sounded a bit like Dog Fashion Disco so I had to check out the album. Sure glad I did as this one starts out strong. Loved the vocals and riffs and there was even a metal country song on this one.... over all, 5 of the 9 songs I thought were great. 1 song which is basically just a person talking was one I did not care for and skewed the rating below 80 but this is a great album.

Before there was The Heartbreakers there was Mudcrutch. They never recorded a full studio album in the 70's but Tom Petty got the boys together in 2008 to finally do so. Good ole Gainesville Southern Rock....

Haven't heard too many newer AC/DC albums, Stiff Upper Lip was the newest I've heard. This one just sounds like a bunch of similar songs with nothing great or even close to great on it. I haven't heard a great AC/DC album since Flick of the Switch

Too much going on with some of these tracks. There is a 100 peace orchestra that plays on each song.... I think I would like it better if they just got rid of most of that and replaced with a synthesizer.....

Some of these CD's it has been a long time since I have heard them from start to finish. Most hold up over the years, some do not.....

__________________________________________________ _____-

--- Jethro Tull - Aqualung : 92.674 : Top 20 album and by far Tull's best... does not get old

--- Tool - Salival : 88.957 : Live album, Top 50 of all types

--- Tool - Opiate : 92.699 : Technically a live EP but I count it as a studio. Top 20

--- Possessed - Beyond The Gates : 89.893 : Top 30 album and at one time my favorite Death Metal Band. They only made 3 albums but now 31 years later they are back making a 4th!!!!!

--- Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin I : 88.779 : 2nd favorite Zeppelin album and top 30.
