1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Quality, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't be fooled by the price, this buckle is cheap but at the same time, the quality is terrible. The paint is not great, nor is it consistent across the area of the letters. It also does not clap onto the holes on your belt properly and so it comes undone on occasions. Just spend more money and buy a better quality buckle is all I can say.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the sheer quality, this album is a steel, 14 April 2014
This review is from: All You Can Eat (Audio CD)
I am loving this album and I think it is fair to say, it's far better then their previous (second) release, Balls Out. One of the reasons I love Steel Panther is their ability to craft such excellent rock songs, the vulgarity and comedy is just an added bonus. As a band, you can hear they have advanced and I actually think Satchel's guitar playing skills have become more honed, the solo's now have more depth and better phrasing to them. The craftsman ship on the songs is brilliant with their being some soft and some phenomenal hard rockers, the single "Gloryhole" is so radio friendly and along with "She's on the Rag", you'll find your self humming along after the first listen; most tracks are so damn catchy.

Buy this album now, else you will regret it when you're caught in the wake of Steel Panther.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Systems Are Go!, 17 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Weather Systems (Audio CD)
I've listened to this album over and over so hopefully I've managed to form a pretty good opinion.

Firstly let me say this is an amazing piece of work. The album feels like a journey and I love the three different distinct vocalists (Vincent, Lee and Danny) that are scattered throughout the album. It make it feel almost like a conversation and keeps the music very fresh.

The music overall is stunning and leaves one with an incredible flurry of emotions at the close of the final track. It really is like an emotional roller-coaster and it's very rare that albums are able to do this to you. What Anathema have embarked on here is the road to greatness, this album sounds like nothing else out there and the band are doing extremely well in carving out their own sound and feel. The orchestral work compliments the music beautifully and makes the overall experience so rich.

I can not recommend this album enough. I'd be hard to press to pigeon hole this into a specific genre and actually I wouldn't want to. All I know is that this holds it's own up against many classic albums and time after time is an incredibly rewarding listen. Buy this, you will not regret it one little bit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Sure What They're Getting At......, 24 Sept. 2010
After spending time listening and re-listening this album I have come to the conclusion that I'm just not sure what message Santana are trying convey with this latest release. At this stage of their career one would expect an album to sound much more refined and well thought out, almost as if it has real purpose. I'm not adverse to the concept of playing covers, however creating an album full of them is questionable. The problem with covers, especially ones this famous and iconic, you have to make sure it is your own interpretation and is different enough that it can breathe some new life into a song that is so well known. A lot of songs on here are so close to the originals that they lack any reinvention and because of this it has lead to a miserable, dull experience for the listener. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" has been the only song that has been given a different feel to it, which I think is actually nice to listen to. Everything else is very disappointing. "Back in Black" is awful, Nas does a terrible job attempting to sing/rap on this classic. A lot of the songs could also be questioned whether they are in fact "guitar classics" anyway. The songs on here I dislike most are "Smoke on The Water" which is so close to the origonal and Carlos Santana does a really bad job trying to come up with anything to compare to Richie Blackmore and "Sunshine of Your Love". "I Ain't Superstitious" Could be so good as the blues lends itself to a multitude of different interpretations but does Carlos Santana really need to try and follow Jeff Beck, since when did he need to try and pretend to play like another guitar hero?

Overall, this is not a a good album. On the one hand creating an album of covers of classic songs can be good in the sense that younger adults/kids might hear this album and be tempted to go back and listen to the original songs but it is going to be a real shame when people go back realise that the covers are well below par and do not even compare to the golden oldies. The rest of the band do put a little bit of extra groove into bits of other songs, such as the chorus of "Photograph" or "Sunshine of You're Love" but still does very little to separate this from the original. Listen to the songs on Spotify\youtube for a while or down load individual songs but do not spend the amount of money to purchase this CD.
