Shinedown: Threat to Survival

“…Threat to Survival proves that Shinedown still have plenty of gas left in the tank, and while the occasional foray into the shallower end of the mainstream may divide some listeners, there’s enough here to keep longtime followers satiated (and probably a little curious/nervous as to what the future holds) until the next ride.” -Allmusic.com […]

Danzig: Skeletons

“Raw, rowdy, and devoid of any sort of studio chicanery, Skeletons feels less like a proper Danzig album and more like a home recording of a boozy late-night house show.” -Allmusic.com Check our Catalog

Keith Richards: Crosseyed Heart

“He may not forcibly claim this ground here but that’s the appeal of Crosseyed Heart: it’s a winningly low-key record, where the atmosphere matters more than the songs, yet Richards doesn’t neglect writing tunes this time around.” -Allmusic.com Check our Catalog Listen Now

The Who: Tommy

“Townshend’s ability to construct a lengthy conceptual narrative brought new possibilities to rock music.

Billy Squier: Icon

“All of Billy Squier’s big hits… are featured on this 11-track budget-line comp. Hardcore fans may notice a few smaller hits and deep cuts missing, but this should satisfy most listeners and fans as it delivers a lot of bang for not much buck.” –All Music Guide Check Our Catalog

Jimi Hendrix: People, Hell and Angels

“The surprising thing about this set is not the sound quality (which is exceptional) or that these all sound like finished tracks, but the fact that even avid Hendrix bootleg collectors are unlikely to have heard most of this material… People, Hell and Angels certainly isn’t the place to start your Hendrix collection, but collectors […]
