Boasts some good tracks but overall it's rather bland.Dream Theater A Dramatic Turn of EventsThe only two tracks that are really good are "On The Backs Of Angels" and "Outcry", the remainder being average. Gorguts ObscuraKing Crimson In the Wake of PoseidonKorn Take a Look in the MirrorLed Zeppelin Led Zeppelin IIRanks for me as one of the dullest and most uninteresting Hard Rock albums of all time, yet most people will tell you it's a crown jewel, which I just find unfathomable. Metallica Death MagneticIf the production quality was better, this would be worthy of a 4. Musically, not a bad album however.Opeth HeritageWith Heritage, Opeth recorded a very audacious record featuring no death growls and barely any elements of a Progressive Death Metal group. This album combines classic 70's Prog with a touch of Jazz Fusion. Overall it doesn't take your breath away but perhaps in retrospect it will be looked upon more positively.Opeth DeliveranceMy least favourite of Opeth's discography. Overall it is actually quite decent in most areas but falls below par compared to other releases that the bad had output thus far in their careers. There's definitely more aggression and heaviness, but at times the record feels monotonous and some riffs drag on for a very long time, so there is a mixture of pros and cons.Opeth OrchidA good debut, despite it being rather monotonous and poor sounding. Worth checking out, but Opeth have offered us much better since.Pantera Reinventing the SteelPantera's last hurrah resulted in a sound that was heavier than ever, combing a mixture of elements and incorporating sounds from all the band's previous outings, which sounds absolutely fantastic, but in reality, it was like drinking coffee and tea at the same time. Well, maybe not that bad but it doesn't capture the skill and amazement of the first two Pantera albums. There is definitely some ferociousness that results in some memorable moments such as "Revolution Is My Name" and "Uplift" but it is let down by inconsistency. Lets put it this way: overall, it's actually good and listen after listen it gradually grows on you but this is my least favourite Pantera release and not the record I would play to introduce people to this Heavy Metal juggernaut.Red Hot Chili Peppers I'm With YouIt sounds crisp, almost perfect in a way, but the overall approach isn't spectacular. I was expecting Josh Klinghoffer to show off his guitar playing and prove to everyone why he is a worthy replacement for John Frusciante but instead we were treated to Flea's bass that at times vastly overpowers the guitar. Other than that, Kiedis' vocals are great and the catchiness of the album cannot be ignored.Slayer South of Heaven2.5 averageDream Theater When Dream and Day UniteThere's actually some good material present here ("Ytse Jam" is a major highlight) but the remainder of the album is average, but for a first time effort it showcases a great deal of potential for the future.Immolation Close to a World BelowI Don't understand all the hype that surrounds this. Listened to it, thought it was very average, not terrible but very overrated.Korn See You on the Other SideThe beginning of Korn's journey into the mediocre, if not poor string of releases that do nothing to capture the magnificence of this one time juggernaut in Nu-Metal.Metallica ReloadLoad, surprisingly, brought us a bunch of memorable tracks, more good than bad. ReLoad is split down the middle: half the songs are good, half are not. Therefore, it receives the 2.5 rating. That's it.Slayer Reign in BloodSlayer World Painted Blood2.0 poorBlack Sabbath Born AgainLed Zeppelin Physical GraffitiI've never been a massive Zeppelin fan, I enjoy them but I'm not overly obsessed with them. It's obvious that they're a huge influence and a pivotal part of Rock music, but I don't get they hype that surrounds this double L.P. and that there are people that consider it their best work. Very few memorable songs and even those tracks that feature some redeeming features are not enough to redeem the entire ordeal being presented to us here.Lou Reed and Metallica LuluYes overall, this is a piece of shit. Musically monotonous and uninteresting, with dull vocals and lyrics and awful riffs and licks, and the fact it?s a two disc release that lasts for more than 90 minutes you will never get back, however it didn?t bother me as much as other fans. Some definitely took Lulu too close to heart not realising it?s not the tenth Metallica record, it?s just something on the side I guess, even if it?s not very, well, good.Metallica St. Anger"Well at least it was heavy." Yes, but Load and ReLoad in my opinion contain some memorable tracks, whereas this has none, perhaps that is more to do with the atrocity of the sound (the kitchen pot snare drum) and the nasty Guitar sound, with Hetfield's rubbish vocal delivery over the top. Had all that been of a higher standard, it would've be perceived as more of an accomplishment.Red Hot Chili Peppers One Hot MinuteIt's always been difficult for bands to follow up a multi-platinum critically acclaimed release with another of the same, if not greater value and importance. The Chili Peppers on this occasion failed to release a solid album due to poor songwriting and an unbalanced sound. The biggest issue is the absence of guitarist John Frusciante, who departed the group and was replaced by Jane's Addiction's Dave Navarro, who is not a bad player but not only does his technique and ability not match up to that of Frusciante's but more importantly the sound generated from his playing doesn't match the funk bass of Flea or the vocal style of Anthony Kiedis, particularly on the track "Coffee Shop". As for the songwriting, it feels as though certain songs try a little to hard to write songs better than their previous album. "My Friends" especially falls flat, feeling as though the band attempted a song to eclipse "Under The Bridge" in terms of meaning and success. There are a couple of decent tracks present on this LP however, but they're not Chili classice and they don't make up for the album's overall disappointment.Red Hot Chili Peppers The Red Hot Chili PeppersSounds poor, musically and vocally not a fantastic start and the production is lacking desperately. Certain qualities that would make up the Chili Peppers in the future, most notably funk and groove are almost absent.1.5 very poorSilverchair Young ModernThese guys were favourites of mine when I was younger, but once I heard "Straight Lines" and the rest of the release, almost all my appreciation for them had vanished out the window. This was truly selling out and it reflected negatively on not just myself but many others who love or loved the albums Frogstomp and Neon Ballroom.Slayer Diabolus in Musica1.0 awfulBetween the Buried and Me ColorsJust plain awful and atrocious to listen to. How this band is being heralded as one of the greats of the last ten or so years is beyond me. Very poor in every way.
