  • Badlands: Voodoo Highway- hadn't visited this 1991 sophomore release from Badlands in quite a while, but the muscular bluesy hard rock & metal on display made a recent workout at the gym go quite smoothly. One of Jake E Lee's finest moments in my view.

  • Nightwish: Endless Forms Most Beautiful- really enjoying this latest, the first studio album with Floor Jansen on lead vocals.

    Van Der Graaf Generator: The Quiet Room/The Pleasure Dome - technically under the name Van Der Graaf, but it's still VDGG to me. Last studio album of the '70s for them, and with the addition of electric violin it's slightly different, but I love it just the same.

  • Silberbart: 4 Times Sound Razing- obscure little slice of early '70s Krautrock/hard rock/psych/proto-metal, this one contains a wealth of massive guitar riffs and trippy guitar solos.

  • Peter Hammill: Fool's Mate/Nadir's Big Chance- filling in some of my Hammill gaps from his '70s solo output. Rather like these 2 quite a bit, though both completely different from each other. Nadir rocks pretty hard, while Fool's is rather atmospheric and proggy.

  • May Blitz: May Blitz/The 2nd of May- really solid albums from this early '70s heavy rock & blues combo. Love Cream, Led Zepp, Cactus, and Black Sabbath? Well, then check these out!

  • Socrates Drank the Cronium: Socrates Drank the Cronium/On the Wings- nice and heavy early '70s hard rock from Greece. Amazing how many of these obscure heavy rock gems from that time period are out there.

  • Message: From Books and Dreams- another rarity, this one from 1973, featuring British and German musicians. Dark prog, psychedelia, and hard rock...quite good.

  • Mogg/Way: Chocolate Box- basically, a UFO album not called UFO, this one featured members Phil Mogg, Pete Way, and Paul Raymond along with drummer Simon Wright and guitarist Jeff Kollman. Rocks pretty damn hard throughout, and a worthy addition to the UFO related discography for any fan.

  • Wishbone Ash: Live Dates/Live Dates Volume Two/Number the Brave/Wishbone Four/No Smoke Without Fire/There's the Rub/Locked In/Just Testing/New England/Front Page News- yep, making my way throughout their massive catalog. Shame I only ever owned a 2CD collection from this fine band till recently.

  • Lynyrd Skynyrd: 1991- underrated album from the initial LS reunion. Good summertime Southern Rock!

  • Outlaws: Outlaws- one of the great Southern Rock debuts, from 1975.

  • Magic Kingdom: Savage Requiem - very solid melodic neo-classic power & progressive metal. This one's a keeper!

  • Black Sabbath: Heaven and Hell- a bona fide classic...Ronnie & the Sabs letting the world know they meant business!

  • Max Webster: Max Webster/High Class in Borrowed Shoes/Mutiny Up My Sleeve/A Million Vacations/Universal Juveniles- totally underrated Canadian band, who delivered quirky hard rock, pop, and prog to a world that probably didn't really 'get' them. Kim Mitchell is one hell of a guitar player.

  • Europe: War of Kings- gotta say I am loving this new one more and more. One of their heaviest!

  • Savatage: In the Hall of the Mountain King - only one of the best metal albums of the late '80s....period.
