Michael Sweet -Ten Review

I like the fact that Michael Sweet isn’t afraid to do what he wants on his albums. Ten feels to me as if it is a more retrospective Michael Sweet, hitting various key points of his career, whether it was paying tribute to his heroes to hitting the high spots of his own bands…

Stryper – Fallen review

In keeping with 2013’s album “Second Coming”, Stryper have indeed been ‘reborn’ and are currently riding high on a second career. Whether they ever manage to reach the heady heights of their career in the 1980s remains to be seen but on the strength of recent releases, the quality of their output cannot be brought into question.
So what of their latest offering, ”Fallen” to be released 16th Oct? Will it be “The Rock That Makes Me Roll” or will it be heading straight to the “Abyss”?

Sweet/Lynch – Only To Rise Review

Ending on a pulsating note with title track Only to Rise, this song bears all the hallmarks of a relentless jam. Lynchs’ no frills riff work and Tichys’ animalistic skin battering are monstrous. It would be a crying shame if this project was a one off. Sweet and Lynch clearly have a smokin’ hot compatibility. Their energy and enthusiasm are all over this wonderful album.
