¡ Masterpiece !, The only bad thing of this album is the poor cover art, the rest is simply amazing, strong soft melodic AOR anthems, great catchy songs, superb chorus, amazing vibes and an unbelievable feeling in every track, without forget the most important, Terry´s voice, probably one of the best singers of all times, if not the best, he has power, feeling, passion... a really pleasure to hear his voice.¡ a must have album for all melodic fans !, classic jewel.

Gamma Ray - To The Metal - [2010]

Here is the new album of Kay Hansen and company, a release more oriented to Heavy sounds than the old power with epic choruses style, a band that seems to go slowly diluting release after release, we live in a hard times for power metal and they should have done a better record, too simple to be who they are, anyway... have a couple of good catchy songs.

Delain - April Rain - [2009]

¡ Fuckin´great !, Delain are the crowning jewel of second generation of symphonic melodic heavy metal. Without question Delain mimics the grandeur of the style in their arrangements which are both heavy and symphonic. Pounding rhythms, strong melodies graced with a full and bombastic sound , magnificient keyboards, power guitar riffs and the superb beautiful voice of Charlotte Wessels (a nice variation from all the dramatic and operatic singers in the genre) and of course a masterpiece production. if you like bands like Nightwish (Marco Hietala colaborates here) or Power Metal in general, this album drives you to insane. ¡ one of the really highlights of 2009 !.

White Heat - We Never Heard Of You Either - [1989]

Good release from this Canadian band, 80´s AOR in the vein of Pseudo Echo or Softy Honeymoon Suite, an album with good vibes, catchy soft choruses and good songs to listen quietly and relaxed, maybe for some people this is going to be a little hard to diggest(You know...) but for me is a nice album to listen.

Crazy For You

Heavenly - Carpe Diem - [2009]

¡ No band sounds like this French guys !, don´t expect agressive guitar riffs, Heavenly is what it is, a songs with poppy melodies, catchy Queen influenced high pitch vocal lines, experimental sounds and structures and above all an ultra cheesy and bombastic rhythms, basically they have created a new metal genre "Bohemian Rhapsody Metal".
Anyway... if you like Heavenly you now what you find in here, and if you are a Power fan probably love this album, for me this is great and they are one of the few bands that raise the power metal flag with honor and originality.¡ Great release !

A Better Me


Takayoshi Ohmura - Emotions In Motion - [2007]

Takayoshi Ohmura is a virtuoso guitar player, he's considered a kind of god in Japan but in the rest of the world is not well know. this is a great hard with neoclassical touches album with really good guitar riffs and rhtyhms, catchy melody lyrics and a pretty good singer with a lot of feeling.
I have good vibes with this man, i´ll be waiting for his new album.
