CD review ALEX SKOLNICK TRIO "Live Unbound"

(*/10) I have to admit that jazz normally doesn't belong to my favorite styles of music and when entering the world of free jazz even leads to confusion. However, this album is maybe the foot in the door to jazz music. It’s not that it's the songs itself...

CD review SCORPIONS "Savage Amusement" 50th Anniversary Edition

(*/10) “Savage Amusement” followed the highly successful “Love at First Sting” and it was the first album that couldn’t convince as much as the predecessor. Maybe it was due to the stressful life on tour or it was due to the more commercial metal that...

CD review SCORPIONS "World Wide Live" 50th Anniversary Edition

Even though "Tokyo Tapes" was already an excellent live record, the 1985 release "World Wide Live" is the by far best compilation the band ever published. This live album belongs, together with Iron Maiden "Live After Death" and Deep Purple's "Made in...

CD review SCORPIONS "Love At First Sting" 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

"Blackout" was the worldwide breakthrough for the Scorpions, followed by extensive touring. The question that needed an answer was, if all this will have an impact on the next studio release. It might had an effect, but for sure no bad one. "Love At First...

CD review SCORPIONS "Blackout" 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

"Blackout" was my first Scorpions album and I think that it's still the best longplayer the band from Hannover ever released. The combination of heavy songs and the outstanding artwork by Gottfried Helnwein is an excellent symbiosis that makes the album...

CD review SCORPIONS "Animal Magnetism" 50th Anniversary Edition

(*/10) Scorpions started with "Animal Magnetism" into the 80's - a decade that was supposed to become one of the most successful ones in the band's history. The longplayer shows in a very good way the development of the band over time. And it is the real...

CD review NEW LIGHT CHOIR "Volume II"

(8/10) New Light Choir is a duo. It's John Niffenegger (v, g, b, m-tron) and Chris Dalton (d) that founded the band in 2010 and New Light Choir is so far a pure studio project without having live activities planned yet. The title of the album leads to...
