Guns N' Roses - 2 Classic Albums Under Review: Use Your Illusion I and II DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Guns N’ Roses were the bad boy rock band to beat in the 1980’s. Incredibly influential, they were the latter day extension of the Rolling Stones and Aerosmith.

Review by Kat and Mike Heitzman

While we’ve seen many shows at the House of Blues in Chicago, we’ve never seen the place as packed as it was for Guns N' Roses.

Guns N' Roses - Live in Rosemont, Illinois, November 2011
Review by Josh Turner

Welcome to the rundown of Axl Rose’s band in the windy city. The act was almost three hours late and the opener wasn’t pretty.

Alice Cooper - A Fistful of Alice
Review by Gary Hill
It has been said that this release is redundant because hard-core Alice Cooper fans already have a solid live album in The Alice Cooper Show. However, I find that this release is a a considerably better recording, and that the performance presented herein is superior to that one.

Various Artists - A Tribute To Les Paul: Live From Universal Studios Hollywood DVD
Review by Gary Hill

Come for the performances, stay for the documentary type stuff. A big chunk of this is all about some incredible live performances with musicians ranging from Joe Satriani to Buddy Guy to Slash, Neal Schon and Steve Lukather and more.

Alice Cooper - Along Came A Spider
Review by Gary Hill
Alice Cooper is a performer who has (in the opinion of this reviewer) always had a problem with consistency. Sometimes it’s represented with an album that has some awesome music, but a few songs that leave you scratching your head.

Review by Gary Hill
Brian Tarquin is one of the three guys who are listed as making up Band of Brothers. The other two are Phil Naro and Reggie Pryor.

Derek Sherinian - Blood of the Snake
Review by Gary Hill
Derek Sherinian always seems to be looking for new ways to stretch out musically and this time around he's brought a lot of friends on board to help him in that process. The end result is Blood of the Snake, a disc that is arguably his most diverse. It also might well be his strongest album ever.

Doro - Calling the Wild
Review by Gary Hill
In the 1980’s Doro Pesch fronted the German metal band Warlock. That band is no more, but Doro has kept her career and love of metal alive through the years. This new disc is her first release in the US in many years, but she has continued releasing albums in Europe the entire time.

Alice Cooper - Classiks
Review by Gary Hill
You could say that there are enough Alice Cooper compilations out there. Here’s the thing, though.

Graham Bonnet - Flying...Not Falling 1991-1999
Review by Gary Hill
This new three-disc set from Graham Bonnet is pretty darned good. I've included it under metal because two of the three discs here fit there.

LA Guns - Greatest Hits and Black Beauties
Review by Brian Angotti
With a brief and dissatisfying run with Jizzy Pearl of Love/Hate fame on lead and a revolving door of band members, L.A. Guns return with Greatest Hits and Black Beauties. The disc is a compilation of new tracks and re-recorded classic hits from the original band.

Carmine Appice - Guitar Zeus
Review by Gary Hill

This set has some killer music. It might not be quite metal, but it might be.

Alice Cooper - Hey Stoopid
Review by Gary Hill
This album showcases a metal perpective on the classic Cooper sound and also shows prog tendencies in several places. Alice is joined on this album by many musicians, including several very notables guests (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Ozzy Osbourne and others).

Various Artists - Les Paul and Friends: Tribute to a Legend
Review by Michael Bader
When you hear “tribute album” you usually think of a disc that features a number of artists playing songs by the artist to whom the disc is being dedicated. Well, this one has a bit of a twist.

Chic - Live at the Budokan DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Remembering the days when rock music was seemingly fighting with disco for its very survival – or at least it seemed like it. Disco really felt like some evil monster.

Velvet Revolver - Live in Houston DVD
Review by Gary Hill

If you haven’t heard Velvet Revolver, there’s a very good chance you’ve heard some of the members of the band in other projects.

Sons of Apollo - MMXX (Deluxe Edition)
Review by Gary Hill

It is still pretty early in the year, but I'll be surprised if this release doesn't make my "best of 2020" list. The mix of sounds here includes metal, good solid hard rock and plenty of progressive rock.


More...
Madame Mayhem - Now You Know
Review by G. W. Hill

More or less a heavy metal album, this does have a lot of leanings toward AOR mainstream music.

Sons of Apollo - Psychotic Symphony
Review by Gary Hill

Had I heard this album last year, it would have definitely made my best of 2017 list, and been pretty high on the list. This is an amazing album.

Various Artists - Pure Fire - The Ultimate Kiss Tribute
Review by Gary Hill

This is a reissue of an older Kiss tribute album. It was originally called "Spin the Bottle," and I remember seeing it around that first time out.

LA Guns - Shrinking Violet (Deluxe Reissue)
Review by Gary Hill
Perhaps it’s metal, perhaps it’s not, but either way, this disc is cool. LA Guns is forever tied musically to Guns N Roses through Tracii Guns, but you really don’t hear a lot of the GNR sound on this set.

Review by Gary Hill

This is a reissue of an older album but Duff McKagan’s Loaded.

Review by G. W. Hill

I’ve always appreciated Ace Frehley’s work.

Various Artists - Steinway To Heaven
Review by Gary Hill
It seems like a rather novel, but still somewhat obvious concept. Take various keyboardists, mostly from the world of progressive rock and have them record various classical piano pieces.

Matt Sorum’s Fierce Joy - Stratosphere
Review by G. W. Hill

Let’s just start this by saying, I don’t think anyone would have expected this album from Matt Sorum.

Various Artists - Thriller - A Metal Tribute to Michael Jackson
Review by G. W. Hill

I know the title says this is a “metal” tribute, but I question whether the person who gave it that title knows what “heavy metal” is.

Carmine Appice - Ultimate Guitar Zeus
Review by Gary Hill
An album like this could be a tricky venture. Essentially the concept is a series of songs with the same basic core band.
