4.0 out of 5 stars Good but why no dvd, 28 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is awesome , i got this delivered on the 26th of mar and ive played it a couple of times already. It is just so Whitesnake and as the previous reviewer said i do hope this is not a farewell message from our Dave. The new bunch of wide eyed boys he has behind him are as good as the band he had in the 1987 and theSlip of the Tongue days. I must admit i would truly love a reunion of the original Snake but hey ho. The only reason i have not given this a five star rating is that if you want the dvdWhitesnake - Forevermore (CD/DVD) you have too buy it all over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars One hell of a debut, 9 Feb 2011

This review is from: Time To Burn (Audio CD)
This is one hell of a debut. Hells bells it is just so relentless. From the very first track to the last. It has some melody and some slow tracks. The remake of the Fleetwood Mac song "Chain" is awe inspiring and too me it gives the song a truely masterful kick up the arse.
I am going to keepa an eye on these guys because they are going to go far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good debut, 9 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love this cd. Bought it on the strength of a recommendation from a popular rock music mag. From the very first track"Superstar" right to the last track "International Antherm" there is not a lame track among them. It does slow down on a couple of tracks , and MY GOD more than once i actually believed it was the late Bon scott singing , his voice was really so so similar. Would love to hear him sing some old AC/DC material it would be fun to hear. This cd is well worth a listen , because i feel these boys will go far.

3.0 out of 5 stars Has not stood the test of time., 9 Feb 2011

This review is from: Stone [DVD] [1974] (DVD)
I first watched this film in the early 80's , and i absolutely loved it. That was my mistake , I should of left it has a memory. Times have changed and so have my taste in movies. Do not get me wrong this is still a good movie ,and it was very enjoyable ,dated but enjoyable. The music , really gave it away as an 70's film(1974) , it was almost into romero territory with the eeriness of the musical score( think dawn of the dead music). Some of the film was really good , but it was not really believable anymore , i mean " a cop being allowed to ride with the Angels" it was good back then but not now. The guy who played the Undertaker(Deryck Barnes)was good and so were the real angels who played alongside him. The rest of the film was just a little too corny , so if like me you remember this from your younger years then do yourself a favour leave it there.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an absolute gem., 9 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am possibly one of the few people who have been with this band since their first introduction into the beautiful land of England. I have many books on the band BUT this one has a slight edge on the rest , it is full to the rafters with brilliant photo's , i mean i love it it is fantastic. It has pics of ALL the band members past & present and it has some great stage shots and some great pics of the Aussi/International album covers etc.
If you are even remotely passionate about AC/DC then this book is a must , i mean whether your a Bonno or a Jonno era fan there is something in this book for you , i promise you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best live Iron maiden recording EVER., 9 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beast Over Hammersmith (Audio CD)
Well where do i start?? this is absolutely brilliant live cd. I have been a Maiden fan since the Paul Di'anno days
and have followed their success ever since. I initially only really had Live After Death and i firmly believed this to be the best Live offering from these boys BUT i suddenly discovered this gem as an cd and this as proved to be far superior. OH YES! the sound is very raw and it is the sound of a band who know that they are on the verge of something big but you can sit back and almost believe you are there(in fact i've lost count the times i have been at the Hammy).
For any fans of Maiden or new fans just starting out with the band then this live d is an absolute must.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for lovers of real rock music., 25 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Everyday Demons (Audio CD)
I bought their debut cd due to all the hype not really expecting much. I was mildly surprised at how good a debut that it turned out too be.Rise
BUT wait a minute this their second offering is a totally different kettle of fish it is absolutely brilliant i cannot stop listening to it , from the first track "demon eyes" to the last one "evil man" it just truly sucks you in and you just cannot help but tap your feet/fingers to it , i mean 10 seconds into the first track i just wanted to "bang my head". I am an avid fan of groups from the 70,s like ZEP , early ACDC etc etc and these just fit in so well in that genre.
So for all those rockers out there looking for a true rock contender that will take rock music well and truly into the 21st century then look no further than "THE ANSWER".

5.0 out of 5 stars The best ac/dc album EVER., 3 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Powerage (Audio CD)
AsBack in Black is possibly the best album that they did with Brian Johnson , i feel that Powerage is the best album done with Bon Scott. I mean forgetHighway To Hellit was good but to me it was too polished and did not have the pure rawness that runs through every note on every song on this album.
There is not a bad song on here , it just goes along like a well oiled machine , shifts up into high gear for the track "RIFF RAFF" which to me is the greatest rock song ever as it just gets you going what ever mood you are in at the time. This is to me a legacy from the greatest heavy rock singer , for which i will always hold dear and will never get bored off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second cd from a band who WILL be a force to be reckoned with., 3 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
their debut cdBlack Stone Cherrywas good & certainly worthy of the title best debut from such a young band [their average age was 17]. Well you are in for a pleasant surprise because this excels even that one. From the 1st track[Blind man] to the last one[Ghost of Lloyd collins] it is southern rock at its best , even excelling early Lynyrd Skynyrd?? . Now i not a big fan of southern rock but this i do make an exception for , i was in the belief that after Lynyrd Skynyrd southern rock was a wash out , but listen to this and like me you will be made to eat your words. AMAZING.

5.0 out of 5 stars For fans only, 29 Jan 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Runaways: Edgeplay [DVD] (DVD)
I have been a fan of the runaways for about 30ish years , and so this dvd was a must.
I was disappointed in the fact that there was no real concert footage and also the fact that one of the key members namely Joan jett refused to participate in it.
The one good thing is that it was recorded before we prematurely lost Sandy west [ the drummer] so for that it is worth getting. It is only for real fans of the runaways.
