This is basically Hard Stuff "Bulletproof" with a few extra songs and slightly different mixes. One of the best albums of the 1970's. Absolutely superb

Perhaps the best ever recorded performance of Deep Purple and it's on DVD too.

Highly recommended hard edged hard rock with a bit of blues rock. Fans of Y"&T" should love this. Great vocals, great production impossible to fault really

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Vocals but .............., 23 Sept. 2017
This review is from: Legends of The Shires (Audio CD)
Its good to see Threshold back with a new release without the atrocious Damien Wilson. But despite the superb vocals and some nice signature guitar and keys this is a very disappointing album.
Before going into detail "Legends of the Shires' is far too long, too complex in parts, contains too much AOR and too many fillers and ballads.. In fact the album is in general exceedingly boring.
"The Shire" Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 must be the worst trio of songs / fillers ever recorded by the band and they alone ruin the album.
There are some good moments of course in particular "Small Dark Lines", "Trust the Process" and "Snowblind" but the rest is quite awful.
"The Man who Saw Through Time" clocks in at just under 12 minutes yet meanders along with no purpose for the first 7 minutes if you're still awake it improves a little after that but it's basically a very boring song.
"Stars and Satellites" is an AOR filler. Last track on disc 1 "On The Edge" is barely okay pondering along without too much impetus.
Disc 2 starts with the annoying and awful "The Shire Part" a pointless low tempo ballad.
Not much point in dwelling too much on the rest of disc 2 as it's packed with more of the same including the excruciatingly bad "Lost in Translation" lasting an unbelievable 10 minutes and the equally bad "The Shire Part 3".
No tempo and no balls - Threshold what have you done.
It's impossible to understand this soft / AOR / ballad direction the band have taken but it certainly won't gain them any new fans and will no doubt lose a number of existing ones. I wonder how many of this motley crew of songs they dare to play live.

Truly excellent book for lovers of the fascinating London Mews.
Informative text and dozens of great photos.
If you can't afford also excellent "Mews of London" (about £35) then snap up "Mews Style" at the currently very generous prices

Missed out of this album first time round but it sure sounds good rerecorded. If you like Euro power metal in the vein of Gamma Ray with good clean vocals get this album

4.0 out of 5 stars Thunderstone Return to Top Form, 12 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apocalypse Again (Audio CD)
With the return of their original singer Thunderstone return after 7 years with a great "comeback" album firmly erasing their horrible last effort "Dirt Metal". This is Thunderstone virtually at their best in the style of their first 4 albums. So if you're a fan of their earlier albums this album is definitely one to buy. It's quite short 43 minutes with just one dud song 'Higher'. Good to see them back and busy touring, caught them in London and they were superb.

This review is from: Rising from Ashes (MP3 Download)
Its been a long time since their previous album then out of the blue this one comes along with an entirely different line up. So what do we have well nothing like "Walk the Earth" or "World's Apart" but still a great melodic hard rock / melodic metal album.
Alex Beyrodt (Primal Fear. Voodoo Circle, Sinner) is joined by ex The Sygnet band mate Michael Bormann, Andre Hilgers on drums plus Matt Sinner and Alessandro Delvecchio both from Voodoo Circle and every other German melodic metal band.
So a fine line up and not surprisingly great musicianship and great songs. If you Euro style melodic metal with catchy melodies and hooks you won't be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Avantasia release by far, 28 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Ghostlights (Audio CD)
Avantasia have been free wheeling down a steep slope like a truck without brakes for some time now. And this latest effort sadly consigns them to the bonfire - talking of which a few songs with some Bonfire style melodies would certainly have improved Ghostlights.
To be brutally frank this album is boring and tedious from start to finish. The longer songs bring a new meaning to the word boring whilst some of the shorter songs sound like auditions for the Eurovision Song Contest.
Can it get any worse oh yes the quite horrendous cringing ballads. As for the guest vocalists they all fall flat as no matter how big a name the singers are if the songs are duds they remain equally hopeless and unlistenable to.
How the mighty have fallen I used to love this project / band.
To add insult to injury I bought a ticket for their live show this week way back last year and am desperately trying to offload it but no takers so far.
