Laidlaw - First Big Picnic Review by Brian Angotti Laidlaw is the first band to emerge from Nikki Sixx's Americoma label. First Big Picnic, Laidlaw's debut is a great southern rock album with soulful vocals and blistering guitars. More
Lake - Lake II Review by Gary Hill Lake was one of the great unknown bands of the 1970s. The group combined strong pop melodies with definite progressive rock-oriented arrangements. More
Steve Laputa - Guitars and Christmas Trees Review by Gary Hill Guitarist Steve Laputa has put together a CD whose title both does a great job of getting you ready for the music within and also is a nice creative twist. The cover is much a similar twist, and both of these things fit very well with the music contained within More
Liz Larin - The Story of O-Miz Review by Steve Alspach One tends to feel sorry for people living in Detroit. It's not the most picturesque city around, the economy isn't that good, and don't even mention the Tigers. More
Le Rug - Beenex Review by Gary Hill When I’m getting my list of CD’s to review together for a new issue, I go through everything I’ve gotten in, skip through the first two or three songs (except for the artists I know) and then organize them into piles (prog, metal and other) and then make my selections from there.
Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy Review by Gary Hill For those who think Zeppelin was always nothing but bluesy hard rock, this flies in the fact of that. Much of this disc really fits into a progressive rock category. More
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin III Review by Gary Hill This album was certainly a shock to Zeppelin fans when it came out. Accustomed to the bluesy hard rock of the first couple albums, much of this had to have seemed like a different band. More
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin Review by Gary Hill It’s hard to believe that it’s been forty years since this album was released. It’s still a classic and probably always will be. More
Led Zeppelin - Coda Review by Gary Hill Released after the band had broken up (due to John Bonham’s death), Coda is a collection of previously unreleased tracks. More
Jerry Lee Lewis - Last Man Standing Review by Lorraine Kay After 60 years (almost to the day) from when he first walked into Sun Records, in Memphis, Tennessee, Jerry Lee Lewis is still rocking and rolling. More
Peter Link - Goin’ Home Review by G. W. Hill Progressive rock, jazz and funk merge with things like gospel into a great blend of sounds.
L,I.N.T. - Day 1 Review by Bruce Stringer L.I.N.T. are, to me, a curious Swedish mix of Voivod and Blink 182. I dig Voivod. I don't dig Blink 182, however I can appreciate their pop sensibilities. More
Little Feat - Kickin' It At The Barn Review by Gary Hill Little Feat is one of those bands with a loyal following, much like the Dead, Phish and Jimmy Buffett. I am sure that that group of people waits with bated breath for each new release from the band. More
The Lizards - Against All Odds Review by Gary Hill I have to say it, I love The Lizards! These guys just keep getting better with each successive album. They also seem to stretch the envelope of what is Lizards music as they continue on.
The Lizards - The Lizards Rule Review by Gary Hill The second CD from the Lizards is entitled "The Lizards Rule". That title is quite appropriate because for fans of 1970's styled blues oriented hard rock, the Lizards do rule.
The Lizards - Archeology Review by Gary Hill The whole concept of doing an album of covers seems to be pretty popular these days. There's one superior thing about this one, though. More
A.L.X., who plays keyboards, piano, acoustic and electric guitar, percussion and sings all vocals is joined on this debut album with Thommy Price, (Billy Idol, Joan Jett), on drums and percussion; Jimi Bones (Blondie), on acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, vocals and percussion; and a cast of many female vocalists and other players.
Loretta Lynn - Coal Miner’s Daughter Review by Lisa Palmeno Loretta Lynn starts off this classic country masterpiece with a story about her youth in Butcher Hollar, a bleak mining town. As she reminisces about her childhood home and the family she grew up with, the “tear” in her voice never leaves. More
