Joan Jett & The Blackhearts – Changeup – 2022

It’s definitely an interesting idea to create a “greatest hits” album and make it acoustic, just as Changeup is. I was really looking forward to it when I first heard about it. It was with great expectation I started my first listen to it. I haven’t been really into Joan Jett over the years but I have a few albums and I am a big fan of the Runaways. This should be a great album...

Marshall – Iron Horse – 2020

A while ago I wrote a review of Marshall’s latest album Old Rockers Never Die and now it’s time for the previous album Iron Horse. You will immediately recognize the sound if you have heard the latest album. It’s pretty similar, both in sound and songs actually. But first I need to clarify that the questions I had when reviewing Old Rockers Never Die were answered by Fred Marshall on Twitter just a couple of...

Cyndi Lauper – Detour – 2016

I’m hardly an expert on country or on Cyndi Lauper but I recently discovered her album Detour and find it very enjoyable. For me, it’s an unusual experience since my frame of Cyndi Lauper references mostly is limited to songs like Girls Just to Have Fun and Time After Time. Both are pretty much ancient by now. Oh, and there’s True Colors, I know that one too. But, as a whole, I have no idea...

Venom – From the Very Depths – 2015

I think that From the Very Depths, was the first album that I really listened to after I was discouraged by one of the more commercial albums where Cronos wasn’t present. I can’t remember which one though. But back in the day I really didn’t like it. But on the other hand, I didn’t really like the Black Metal album back in the day either. And, I don’t know why I started to listen to...

The Family Sowell – Time Travel – 2022

I don’t know much about the Family Sowell, or the Sowell Family. It seems to be an internet of TV phenomenon though. I like that they’re all siblings, at least that is my assumption and that they play and perform music together. But I’m not that familiar with them. I do tend to like acoustic music with banjoes in it though. And Banjo is one of the instruments this band uses along with fiddle, mandolin,...

Battle Beast – Circus of Doom – 2022

There’s really nothing else to do but confess. I don’t follow bands and album releases in the same the way I used to in my youth. Battle Beast and therefore Circus of Doom has completely passed me by. But I did a quick google search and Battle Beast is a band from Finland. They have been around since 2005 and Circus of Doom is their sixth studio album. The signature sound of Power Metal is...
