Van Halen – II – 1979

The story about the second Van Halen album follows the story about this debut album. I got it on vinyl in my youth but never really cared för it. Listening to it now makes me realize the virtuosity of Eddie Van Halen. And the cover art might be one of the best ever. I really like the clean look with just a gigantic logo. Music wise, II sounds kinda like the debut album. There’s no...

Van Halen – Van Halen – 1978

Once upon a time, I bought this debut album with Van Halen on vinyl. I still have it by the way. If I ever listened to it I don’t know. At least I had no memories from it whatsoever. I have listened to other albums with Van Halen that I didn’t think we’re that good though. But for some reason, I started to watch some Van Halen documentary on Youtube. That made me wonder, Were...

Jack Russell’s Great White – He Saw it Comin’ – 2017

Once upon a time I listened to a band called Great White. I have long since them forgot all about them untill I got my hands om He Saw it Comin’. My belief was that Jack Russell’s Great White was actually the same band. I have, however discovered that this isn’t the case. When the former Great White singer Jack Russell started use the name for his solo band the other members took the matter...

Asphalt Valentine – 2009 – Strip Rock Roll

Have you heard of Asphalt Valentine before? I haven’t. Well, of course now when I’ve listened to Strip Rock Roll I’m familiar with their sound, not before. I got the recommendation that this should sound something like The Erotics which I like. I just had to check it out of course. How good are these automation recommendations anyway? As I have always said. The Erotics lead man Mike Trash has one big hero – Alice...

The Erotics – Today the Devil, Tomorrow the World – 2010

If you’ve heard The Erotics before you immediately recognize the sound from this new album. There’s no doubt about who’s playing. It’s about the same style as on their previous album Rubbish from 2007 with a few differences of course. First, this is an album that doesn’t stand out as fast as the last one did. It takes more time for it to grow and to become really good! There are a few songs, the...

Dennis Dunaway Project – Bones in the Yard – 2006

The first you hear when you put on the album and play it is something I would call oriental scales. It’s something you can’t put together with the original Alice Cooper Band sound or with one of its original members. It’s not a bad thing, quite the opposite in fact, but nothing to be expected at all. Soon you are totally in unison with the music and there’s a lot of interesting listening. It’s music...

Burn – Rock Royale – 2010

When I first heard Burn on My Space it was really to my liking. But listening to one or two songs doesn’t make a complete impression and I felt I needed to hear more. I contacted Burn and a few days later a Promo landed in my mailbox. I think I needed that so this could be a just review. To write reviews of stuff you asked for is the most difficult task of all...

Alice Cooper – Welcome 2 My Nightmare – 2011

This review is for the Universal: Exclusive Limited Edition. I haven’t bought the last few albums with Alice on the release day. I was so disappointed with The Last Temptation and Brutal Planet that I thought he’d lost his touch. But a few months, or even a couple of years ago, I started to write a complete discography on all the albums, the initial band era and Alice’s solo material. It’s only available in Swedish I’m...

All Them Witches – Sleeping Through the War – 2017

Apparently All Them Withes plays so-called Stoner Rock. That is a genre och sub genre I never knew about until now. Correction, I’ve heard about it but didn’t know what it was. Of course I cannot tell if All Them Witches is representative for the genre but it sound like they’re high on marijuana. It first I though it sounded awful but later I realized the charm. Some of the charm that is. It’s still...

Kiefer Sutherland – Down in a Hole – 2016

It was just a few weeks ago that I learned that actor Kiefer Sutherland also had a passion for music. I though to myself that I need to check this out, so I did. I didn’t even spend any time thinking about it.The right thing to do is just to jump right in there with the task. The first time i listened to I didn’t really know what to think. I thought the Kiefer voice wasn’t...
