Love — The Cult — W.A.C.#4

My thoughts The Cult’s second studio album straddles the unclear line between rock and metal. It’s a little late to be early metal and so probably fits in the “goth metal” category. Whatever it is, Love has a definitive 80’s sound. You could … Continue reading

Queen II — Queen — W.A.C.#4

My thoughts Despite the what the album cover might suggest, we are before Bohemian Rhapsody. Queen had written a lot of material by the time they released their debut album (Queen) but didn’t feature a lot of it. The main aim … Continue reading

Out of the Silent Planet — King’s X — W.A.C.#3

My thoughts Ah once again we meander along the line of hard rock and metal. Here I have to cheat, because I can’t express it more succinctly than the pre-review chat I had; I can quote: “A mixture of Metallica-esque riffs … Continue reading

Innuendo — Queen — W.A.C.#3

Oh man this is hard… Queen’s 14th and final studio album. The last Queen album I did was in the 70’s. Freddie Mercury is dying. He has months left, they knew it and this is his swan song. 100% this … Continue reading
