Foreigner, Double Vision***: Back in fourth grade, I used to walk home from school. I lived about a mile and a half to maybe two miles from Dunair Elementary in Atlanta, and I would walk that stretch of sidewalk singing "Ladies Night" by Kool and the Gang or "Lonesome Loser" by The Little River Band or "Hot Blooded" off this album here. That little bit of nostalgia lifts this one up an extra star, but other than that, this is fairly safe and predictable hard rock. 11/9/15

Legs Diamond, A Diamond Is a Hard Rock****: So far, I've listened to two Legs Diamond albums and I am so very pleased that I have. This is just straightforward, kick-ass hard rock that even has a flute solo at one point, and throughout, there's a swagger that some bands take years to perfect and some never at all, but this band had it on their second album. It may not have sold well, but I think that is all about poor marketing and nothing to do with album quality as this album rocks…

Judas Priest, Stained Class****: Though this is still an excellent album, I still believe that "Sin After Sin" is the better effort. Everything feels a bit hurried on this, and except for a couple of tracks, that progressive feel has been left off this album. Instead, the band has opted for a much more straightforward approach to songwriting that would be a hallmark (and somewhat of a letdown) of their 80s catalog. It's a great album, just not a masterpiece. 11/23/15

AC/DC, Live From the Atlantic Studios*****: I sometimes accuse AC/DC of being a band that has made a living out of the same basic riff for 40 years or so, but I do so in the most complimentary of ways. They have done wonders with that riff, and that wonder shines through in this live set from '77, before they were big time rock n roll stars here in the states. I wonder what a Bon Scott "Back in Black" would have sounded like? 11/5/15

Alice Cooper, From the Inside***: Sometimes I wonder if I should just try to come up with one word to describe each of these albums. One quick adjective that helps define why I have rated the album as I have done and what listeners might be able to expect from the album. In this case, I'd have to say that one word is "underrated." It's not so underrated that it deserves more than three stars, but it would be nice to hear about this Cooper album a bit more in comparison to his classics…

Boston, Don't Look Back***: That seemed very short. If I were some music lover back in 1978 when this album came out, I would have definitely been very disappointed in this album. A two year wait in an era where many bands had at least 2 if not 3 albums out every 18 months or so. And then, to only get 34 minutes of music that was, for all intents and purposes, far less satisfying than that on the debut album. If I'm a bit disappointed now, I think I'd be furious then. 11/5/15

Ted Nugent, Weekend Warriors*: A one star effort is one that I don't really like, and I probably won't ever listen to again. That being said, I don't consider it a complete waste like I do a 0 star effort; I just won't darken the doorstep of this particular album ever again. At least, not unless the "Nuge" hunts me down, kills me, and mounts my head in his living room, but I digress. Anyway, each song sounds like Ted is rehashing the "Cat Scratch Fever" riff ad nauseum. 11/4/15

Starz, Attention Shoppers!****: Other reviews claim that this is substandard stuff from this band, but in relation to other albums of this year, this is much better than I expected. I guess most critics didn't think that the new producer on this one gave them the same kind of oomph they had on their previous albums. Yes, but this new producer brought a more progressive mindset into this recording. I mean, this is nearly prog glam. 11/5/15
