Maiden comes back stronger than ever with this album. Guitar synths are used to great effect, and the solos are beyond fantastic on this album. Grand choruses and epic production make this a true experience. My absolute favorite.

The energy, power, and cohesion brought forth on this album is something 2019 has been sorely
lacking. Everyone on the record is putting in 110%, and the orchestral arrangements flow perfectly
on every track. Every song is delightfully catchy and cheesy, and the title track may be my song
of the year.

What I ended up listening to was not I expected from this album at all. The short headbangers are

Straightforward well performed Power Metal. That's all I wanted from this record, and it's exactly
what I got.
Iron Maiden Iron Maiden
Great debut from metal legends. Only fault is the two slower songs that detract from the album's feel.
Iron Maiden Fear of the Dark
Much more diverse and exciting than the previous 2 albums. "Fear of the Dark" is still one of my favorite Maiden songs.
Iron Maiden The X Factor
Fiercely underrated album. Only hated because it's not Bruce, but that's why the album succeeds in being such a great listen. "Sign of the Cross" is the best Iron Maiden song ever.
Iron Maiden Live After Death
Iron Maiden Brave New World
Great return of Bruce and one of the best post Blaze albums Maiden has released. Only issue is that the running times of the songs started to linger too long. This would be an issue that would plague future Maiden releases.
Iron Maiden Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
Solid Maiden release, only held down by a few too many prog ballads.
Iron Maiden The Book of Souls
The last two albums were weak as hell. Let's hope they found out how to pace songs or else we'll
be subjected to an 18 minute song with two riffs.

Update: This album really exceeded my expectations. Maiden has finally figured out how to pad out
songs running times, making every second of each song feel necessary. Every song fits together
like a puzzle. I think a large fact of the albums greatness is the fact that Harris was absent
through most of the songwriting process, allowing the rest of the bands writing abilities to
really shine. While not perfect, it's immensely satisfying to hear Maiden with this much energy
again. Overall a damn good album, and their best since 'The X Factor'.

The boys from Stormwarrior pull through just before the end of the year with a real doozy. The botched production job holds it back a little, but it has so much cheesy goodness I can't help but love it.
Striker Stand in the Fire
Striker Play To Win
A much more cohesive and finished product than their previous release only a year prior. A small
gripe I have with the record lies in it's lyrics and how many times the phrases "Into the night"
or "Through the night" are used. The album has a bit of a pacing issue, with the tempo's lacking
variation, and the drum work, while impressive on a technical level, is a little too similar from
track to track. However, Striker manages to deliver the goods when it comes to killer production,
sheer intensity, technical ability, and raw power.

I don't give a shit if Gillan doesn't fit the band or how shitty the artwork is. This album has a song called "Digital Bitch", I'm kind of required to like it.

I love how every incarnation of Sabbath sounds unique and distinct from one another. I'd be lying if I said I don't dig the fuck out of this one.

Love these guys, and I really dig this new record. The boys in BC sound tight as fuck on here, leaving nothing to be desired in the performance department. I'd say may biggest critique would be the talking points and social criticisms aren't quite as sharp as they were on Bloodlust, and they seem to be treading over too much familiar water.

Greta Van Fleet Anthem of the Peaceful Army
A consistent and catchy listen, albeit a tad uninspired and unoriginal. Lyrically the album touches upon all the lyrical tropes you would expect from an album of this nature. Despite the album's creative faults, it still remains a highly enjoyable listen with a very talented band to back it up. Hopefully they stray from the cut and paste Led Zeppelin format in the future.
Grim Reaper At The Gates
Was not expecting this to be so good. Steve's voice is for the most part intact, and 'The Hand
That Rocks the Cradle' is among one of the band's best songs. Kinda suffers from a top heavy track
list though.

These guys will always be a guilty pleasure of mine. Love their cheesy horror-themed lyrics, and their bombastic 90's style production. Probably their best since Jeckel Brothers.
Iron Maiden Dance of Death
More of a classic vibe to this album than the previous. Short and strait to the point songs, as well as epics can be found on this release. 'Dance of Death' shows Maiden's diversity, and ability to change things up.
Iron Maiden Piece of Mind
"Where Eagles Dare" may be one of my favorite Maiden songs, but this album also contains two of Maiden's weakest songs. "Die With Your Boots On" and "Quest For Fire" are completely abysmal efforts.
Iron Maiden Killers
Wrathchild and Killers are some of the best songs Maiden has to offer.

While the music on here is as good as ever, the messages are a little too forced on this

being said, if you can get past the incessant preaching, the songs themselves are rock
solid.

Yeah, this really didn't do anything for me. The followup is far superior in my eyes.

Hey, this isn't half bad. Lake of Fire and Death from above are some hard jams.

By the books doom metal, lacking variation and flavor. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either.

The furry artwork is pretty fucking awful, but the music is alright for what it's worth. Some okay stuff on here.

Underrated gem in Maiden's discography. Aside from Angel and The Gambler this album is nothing short of classic.

I have a strong distaste for metalcore and it's "woe is me" attitude, but this was alright. I didn't cringe once while listening to it, so I'd say that's an accomplishment.
Primus The Desaturating Seven
Queensryche Empire
Rage Wings of Rage
If you're in the mood for some metal, this will do. Variety isn't the album's strong suit however. You could turn it off after the song Wings of Rage and not miss a single thing.

Skull Fist Way of the Road
The latest Skull Fist release took 4 years to come to fruition, but isn't quite worth the wait.
Unlike their previous releases which contained no filler, this album is filled to the brim with
pointless and uninspired tracks. While the filler tracks are a glaring issue, there are some
complex and intricate solos here and there. Another positive is that the album certainly doesn't
overstay it's welcome clocking in at only 35 minutes.

A pretty fun record, but really nothing special. Far too many cheesy ballads, and that middle
section is softer than Michael Moore's diet plan.

Woof, I don't think it's nearly as bad as people are saying. It's not great, but it has it's charm.

I kept waiting for something to blow me away, but it never happened. There isn't anything bad on here, but there isn't anything noteworthy either. It really does feel like a collection of tracks meant to be squeezed in between normal Blind Guardian songs.
Blue Oyster Cult Curse of the Hidden Mirror

While this is a technically impressive record, it's a real slog to get through. It almost gets a 3 for being musically impressive, but it simply never kept my interest.

My roommate worships this band. I'm sure if I was still 11 I would have dug the fuck out of this.
Iced Earth Framing Armageddon
What the fuck happened? No seriously, what the FUCK happened between albums?
Iced Earth The Crucible of Man
The first half of this album is so fucking boring. 2nd half is damn good, but I can't give it anything more than a generous 2.5.
Iron Maiden The Number of the Beast
Not anywhere near Maiden's best work. Filler absorbs most of the albums running time, but the 3 big tracks keep it from being a bad album.
Iron Maiden The Final Frontier
Lingering running times , a poor vocal performance from Bruce, and large amounts of filler make this album less enjoyable than prior 2000 releases.
Iron Savior Kill or Get Killed
Serviceable, but it's really nothing more than by the books power metal. Sick artwork though.
Judas Priest 5 Souls
Killswitch Engage Atonement
Lacuna Coil Black Anima
It's a no from me. The heavily distorted alt metal guitars layered on top of clean angelic vocals,
paired with some totally EPIC and BRUTAL screams are just silly. I know it's their sound, but
their sound just doesn't work for me.
Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin III

A record that's eclectic for eclectic's sake. Sure, the debut was all over the place stylistically, but not once did it sound forced or pretentious. Sadly, I can't say the same about this record.

Queensryche Operation: Mindcrime II
Ramones Pleasant Dreams
Ramones Acid Eaters
Ravensire A Stone Engraved in Red
Rhapsody of Fire The Eighth Mountain
An overproduced, over-polished power metal album severely lacking in the power department. One of my biggest gripes in how new vocalist Giacomo Voli sounds like he's going to break down and cry for the entire record. It has one hell of a closing track though.

The one time I smoked weed nobody told me it was laced with some sort of hallucinogen, and
I had a hellish nightmare trip. Now every time I smell it I get PTSD.

WARNING: The contents of this album contain epic Trump burns and mediocre punk songs.
Bathory Requiem
Battle Beast No More Hollywood Endings
Kinda blows it's load in the first 3 songs, and doesn't pick back up until The Golden Horde. The highlights are great, but the lows are deeper than the Mariana Trench.
Black Sabbath Never Say Die!
Black Sabbath Technical Ecstasy
Black Sabbath Forbidden
That opening track is wretched. The rest of the album is pretty by-the-numbers and generic, but not as god awful as people say.
British Lion The Burning
Wow, this was letdown. Production is thin, Steve's bass is pretty much inaudible throughout, and
every song is mindbogglingly generic. I seriously can't recommend this one.
Children of Bodom Blooddrunk
Devin Townsend Empath
There are so many sub-par aspects of this record. There is consistently too much shit going on all
at once, and nothing ever comes together as a cohesive whole. Clocking in at a meaty 75 minutes, I
could not wait for this thing to end.
Five Finger Death Punch F8
Forged in Black Descent of the Serpent
Pretty generic thrash, with a decent vocalist. Skip it.

I mean it's bad don't get me wrong, but I still enjoyed it more than the steaming pile of shit Blink-182 released last year. This is a masterpiece in comparison.
Helloween Chameleon
Iron Maiden No Prayer for the Dying
I hate giving anything by Maiden such a low score, but this album really bombs. Tailgunner is really the only decent track on this album. But thats about it. The rest of the album is complete filler to the worst extent.

Terrible concept, terrible stage show, terrible story line, and terrible lyrics. If it wasn't for the competent execution and performances this would be completely nonredeemable. With that being said, it still manages to be somewhat listenable in comparison to the film adaptation's soundtrack.

One or two song stand out in this collection of reworked Van Halen tunes. Eddie has forgotten how to write riffs, and DLR sounds like he is taking a massive dump throughout the entire album.

I somehow still enjoyed this more than Blink-182's album this year.

I have no idea why this is album is getting any praise at all. This album was absolute trash. Top

Zac Brown Band The Owl
They gave genre jumping a shot back in 2015, and it produced middling effects at best. Jekyll
+Hyde wasn't great, but it at least had a couple alright tracks on it, and 2017's 'Welcome Home'
was a welcomed return to form for me. However, 'The Owl' is might be the biggest dip in quality
I've ever heard from any band ever. After hearing this, it's pretty obvious they don't give a
quarter of a shit anymore. The song 'God Given' has given me confidence in saying I'm probably not
gonna give any subsequent albums of theirs a spin.
