Sodom - Obsessed by Cruelty (German Version) (1987)

My Ratings: 65.983
Rank: 998 (out of 1078)

Black Metal

Best Song: Fall of Majesty Town

Well, this was the debut LP of Sodom and it is well known for being raw and poorly produced. So badly that the guitar player left and they did the album over again but it still suffered from production. The "German" version was the 2nd recording....

Slots 11 thru 15 from my CD changer.....

__________________________________________________ _

--- Project 86 - Truthless Heroes : 72.497 : Basically the same rating as before... in danger of dropping out of my CD changer

--- Tool - Aenima : 95.110 : Top 20 album

--- Staind - Dysfunction : 89.135 : Rating dropped a bit. Saw them during this tour and Aaron Lewis just looked like he was in so much pain seeing these songs.... amazing performance. This is the only Staind CD I will listen to.

--- Pink Floyd - The Division Bell : 85.019 : My 5th favorite Pink Floyd Album. I am probably in the minority of really liking this one.

--- Savatage - The Dungeons Are Calling : 88.927 : My favorite one from Savatage that just keeps getting better every time I hear it!!!!

For 2007 metal, I would suggest.

Municipal Waste - The Art of Partying
Skeletonwitch - Beyond the Permafrost

Not really metal, but still good suggestions.

Baroness - The Red Album
Thrice - The Alchemy Index (4 different albums, Fire, Earth, Air, and Water). Really a great concept idea and I think they did a really good job of making it all work.

Thanks, I do have Skeletonwitch and Thrice on my list. I might give Municipal Waste another chance. Never heard of Baroness though....

Shining - V: Halmstad (2007)

My Ratings: 72.927
Rank: 595 (out of 1080)

Black Metal

Best Song: Longing Away from My Heart

I have no idea what they were singing about as the vocals were in Swedish but it sounded depressing. "As I was going up the stair I met a man who wasn’t there. He wasn’t there again today I wish, I wish, he’d go away" The best part of this band was the guitars with some great riffs....

Dawn of Tears - Descent (2007)

My Ratings: 71.801
Rank: 706 (out of 1082)

Melodic Death Metal

Best Song: Blaspheme Natured Messiah

This one started out great with the opening track but after the 4th track it went down hill quickly. This was Metal Storms top Melodic Death Metal Album for 2007 but I only liked 4 of the 9 tracks.

Serj Tankian - Elect The Dead (2007)

My Ratings: 71.153
Rank: 756 (out of 1085)

Alternative Metal

Best Song: Feed Us

Something was missing, I got it... Daron Malakian. This debut solo album by Serj was nothing more or should I say less a watered down weaken version of SOAD.

Rank: 797 (out of 1089)

OK, this probably was not the best J. Geils album to pick for my first listening to this band but hey, I still liked it. There was a couple slow songs I did not like but most on this LP was alright....

The Foreshadowing - Days of Nothing (2007)

My Ratings: 70.140
Rank: 817 (out of 1090)

Gothic Doom Metal

Best Song: The Fall

Debut album, it is doom metal so it is depressing but throw in the goth vocals and, well, I'm not sure. I liked half the tracks. Not sure if I could listen to the whole album in its entirety again but it is not bad in small doses....

Alvin Lee- The Best Classic Rock Guitarist you never heard of.- RIP

Alvin stayed true to his roots and played Blues Rock up until his death. I admire artist that don't chase after the current trends to try to cash in (ex. Rolling Stones' Late 70's Disco Phase).

Ten Years After had one mainstream hit - I'd Love to Change the World.

TYA's performance at Woodstock was one of the Movie's highlights. Here's the clip:



Love the ending: Someone rolls a Watermelon on the stage and Alvin heaves it up on his shoulder and walks off the Stage. Very Cool.

Yes - Fragile (1971)

My Ratings: 78.305
Rank: 241 (out of 1094)

Progressive Rock

Best Song: Long Distance Runaround

When I was a kid YES could be heard throughout the house. I did not care for them then as the songs were long which I found boring. Recently though, I rediscovered Yes and I am now hearing what it is all about. Lot of great tracks on this one.....
