Andy Timmons That Was Then, This Is Now
Timmons is the epitome of a guitar player with sensational feel. On top of it, he possesses virtuosic abilities and from time to time will bust it out to wow the listener. "Cry For You," and "It's Getting Better" especially are jaw-dropping at times.
Angra Temple of Shadows
More character. More Skill. More maturity. More everything; the album is a superb piece of power metal that is far better than the average. Kiko Loureiro in particular is a fantastic guitarist and arguably the highlight of the record; his solos are technical but always have rhythm and groove to go with it.

Clint Black has always been and always will be an epitome of what

songwriter, and performer. Song selection was kind of retarded as
some #1 Singles we're left off, and non-singles put on; but all in
all, solid compilation.

An incredible work that is very reminiscent of prime Queensryche, except I'd consider saying this is possibly even better. NoTrap recommended me this album and damn was that boy ever right about it. '80s Power-Prog is so damn underrated and the album proves it. "Painted Skies" is a trve jam.

Wow what a pleasant surprise. There are times here when Tommy matched what Roy could do - albeit with his own flavor ("Forever" jumps to mind). Not quite as great as One Cold Winter's Night, but gives it a run for its money - unexpectedly!

More enjoyable than the majority of both Blind Guardian and Iced Earth, respectively. Plenty of riffage and headbanging throughout the album; it's just as much good ol' fashioned, straight-forward Metal as it is Power Metal. Whatever you'd like to call it, it rules.

Evergrey The Storm Within
Wasn't crazy about the album initially (and a little disappointed to be honest), but the more I listen my opinion changes for the better. Love that they added in more keyboards and there are concurrent themes throughout the album and that it feels like 1 complete piece rather than a random collection of songs; the first time I've been able to say that since In Search of Truth and Inner Circle.

Letter X Born Into Darkness
Born Into Darkness is an excellent 80's-style mainstream "metal" record; skillful clean vocals, power chords, solos, and catchy choruses. Frankly, the band isn't overly impressive in any realm and their song writing is largely predictable, but it doesn't stop the album from being successful. Don't expect to have your mind blown; rather, expect to enjoy the record for it is- mainstream Rock 'n Roll that is easy on the ears and fun to listen to. Overall, a great record for its genre.

Invisible has weaker songwriting than other Nightingale albums, but that's in no way saying it isn't good. It is. Super clean sound mixing is one of the most noticeable things for me. I recommend: "Still Alive," "The Wake," "To The End," and especially "Atlantis Rising" which is one of the catchiest songs I've heard in a great while.

Tafolla does a great job putting together all the elements of 80's-style shredding; that however, is the album's shortcoming- it's clearly dated to its era and isn't interesting enough to be relevant today. This album sounds noticeably similar to Vinnie Moore's 1987 masterpiece Mind's Eye, except not as good. Never the less, the last 3 songs are especially enjoyable, and this is a quality album for its time.

Vinnie Moore is the focal point of this album and puts on a fantastic blues-inspired performance that does include some faster solos which Vinnie has become known for. Great classic rock riffs, overall solid songwriting, and no shortage of solos. "Stranger In Town" concludes the album, which is probably the strongest track on it.

Inmoria A Farewell to Nothing - The Diary Part I
This is a straightforward modern Metal band that is fun to listen to and has a major propensity for getting your head bobbing; don't expect anything truly unique from them though because the riffs and everything else are basically rehashes of things we've already heard from other bands. The 1st half is much stronger than the 2nd half, but overall still a fun album.

If there's a single most Metallica-"inspired" band (or ripoff band for that matter), it would be Morgana Lefay on this album. While there are a few great songs, most of the album is lackluster and the Metallica influence is so overwhelming that it can nearly ruin the listening experience all together.

Locke has some great riffs and ideas, however, the album as a whole is a bit tedious to get through. I suspect within the context of a full band Locke could be quite successful, but the majority of this record doesn't have enough punch to keep it interesting. Locke reminds me a lot of Keith Merrow; both are solid Metal musicians and deserve respect for their material, but neither are great enough to be truly memorable as a one-man project.

Album seems so uninspired when compared to Mind's Eye. Many of the solos are similar; in fact, I even remember Vinnie re-using the solo from "Shadows of Yesterday" somewhere in one of these songs and just tweaked the timing of it. A decent album that is not on par with what Vinnie is capable of.
Vinnie Moore To The Core
Vinnie Moore not producing up to his capabilities, again. Album is very forgettable and largely not very interesting. Needs to stop trying to be Andy Timmons and just shred.

Pretty ironic that Yngwie's album Magnum Opus is nowhere near his best. The vocals on this record leave a lot to be desired, and are sometimes just downright annoying. Ygnwie is good but also nowhere near his best; a decent album, nothing more. "Crossing The Line" is great though.

High in skill and precision; low on songwriting. The leads are absolutely brilliant, utilizing many different styles and techniques, however, the backing music is incredibly generic. Even his world-class playing can't mask that defect for an entire album. Paul easily convinces us he's an elite talent in shred, but ultimately this suffers from the same faults of Jeff Loomis' records- it's too repetitive and too boring beyond a few songs.

This band is so confused as to what they even are. At times they sound surprisingly powerful and metal, and then there are flat-out trashy pop songs. The only constant is laughable lyrics. I still think this band actually has potential, but right now it's still a convoluted trainwreck.
Becoming The Archetype I Am
Horrendously boring and lacking in creativity. This album is a 1.5/5 as a whole, but lucky for it, a few semi-cool sections bumped it to "average." There is literally nothing to get excited about here.

This is like music for middle schoolers and not even good, at that. The songwriting is incredibly lacking; it's as if Nothing put barely any thought into the actually songwriting process. Not that Jeffrey Nothing has ever been known for being ultra talented or anything, but this is even below what he's capable of doing. How the 3 other people who've rated this before me gave it a decent score I have no idea.

Yngwie Malmsteen Blue Lightning
Ruined every song on here. Yngwie loves slinging mud at former singers to the likes of Jeff Scott Soto and Ripper Owens....but what Yngwie fails to realize the quality of the music greatly diminished when he took over vocals. Also, Yngwie doesn't even attempt to portray himself as a true artist and creative mind anymore. The mindless, droning shredding is devoid of any careful thought. Truth be told I was only able to listen through about half the record - but I'm sure I didnt miss out on anything in the other half. What a shame; I still respect and enjoy Yngwie's early material.
