25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck (1993)

25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck (1993)

This, my fourth edition of 25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck, was easily the hardest. While years past I found myself weeding my list down to 25, this year’s list almost included three live records from Iron Maiden and one Poison album.  1993 was not a banner year for rock music.  The first wave of grunge had settled down.  Kurt Cobain was arrested in a domestic incident with his wife Courtney Love.  Bruce Dickinson…

Be sure to check out the Decibel Geek website contributor’s collective compilation of the top albums: Best of 2017 Article Every year I think these top ten lists will get easier, but they don’t – and that’s a good thing.

ACCEPT – The Rise of Chaos (Album Review)

ACCEPT – The Rise of Chaos (Album Review)

To be honest, hard rock/metal in general. 90’s released Accept albums Objection Overruled, Death Row and Predator came and went without my knowledge. Then I acquired 2010’s Blood of the Nations and all of that changed. Surprised to stumble across it, I, of course, got it much later than its actual release day. Playing…
