5.0 out of 5 stars Quality heavy rock, 24 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Men Of Honor (Audio CD)
Amazon says that 5 stars in a review means you have to love the product and I already love this album. There is a nice mix of heavy yet melodic with singalong choruses aplenty, loads of shredding guitar, and more riffs than is decent. Even the 2 ballads, Behind These Eyes and Crystal Clear are a bit edgy and anything but throwaway. What I particularly like about this album is that while you'd struggle to say it is particularly innovative, the band here have crafted some very very good hard rock songs that are instantly memorable with nary a duff note out of place and that takes a bit of doing nowadays. In a year where I have already enjoyed some great hard rock and metal albums this one has instantly gone to the top of the playlist. Great stuff!

Any idea why Metal Hammer gave it 2/10? Never seen them give a 2...

Probably because it's not "metal" enough for them? I'd say it's "Hard Rock" so it may not fit in with what they (or the particular reviewer) wants from the band. To be fair I can actually see why some may not like it as it's not what you'd call "challenging". This suits the likes of a gentleman of a certain age like me who has quite frankly had enough "challenge" in music now and just wants to listen to some tunes. You are welcome to disagree with me on that score alone if you wish but I've just listened to the album again (hence I've revisited my review and seen your comment so apologies for late reply) and I still love it.

I agree. I've started taking reviews with a pinch of salt after Classic Rock gave the last Nickelback album 2/10 and William Shatner's album 6/10 in the same edition. I accept that Nickelback aren't breaking any new ground, and have become the Winger of the current age in that it's trendy to slag them off, but seriously? As for Men Of Honor, I love it too. It isn't breaking any new ground, and I suspect it might not have the longevity and depth of Symphony X (Russell Allen's other singing duty), but it's going to stay in my car for the whole of the summer for those Friday afternoon drives home when the sun is shining!
