Weekend playlist

Nothing beats another weekend off from work! Especially when another week’s vacation starts in four days! I got to listen to some great albums, and some disasters, over the last couple of days, here’s the list:

  • Great White – Back to The Rhythm (2007): I’m still enjoying this new album, a review is coming this week.
  • Stryper – The Roxx Regime Demos 1983 (2007): I haven’t given this proper time in the stereo. I’m also comparing it to their debut, THE YELLOW AND BLACK ATTACK (1984). Review is coming.
  • Stryper – The Yellow And Black Attack (1984): Refreshing my memory and comparing to the Roxx Regime Demos.
  • Peter Criss – One For All (2007): Giving this one last listen before it’s filed away. (The review is posted just before this one.)
  • Gene Simmons – Asshole (2004): I listened to this a couple of times when it first came out and I haven’t revisited it yet. I’ve been listening to Peter’s new record, and Paul’s latest still gets regular spins, so I decided now was the time to give Asshole another try. I’ll review this soon.
  • Van Halen – VH III (1998): After reading a post at Bring Back Glam debating this record/lineup, I decided to pull this one out. It wasn’t Gary Cherone’s fault, it was Eddie’s.
  • Rough Cutt – s/t (1985): Thanks to the insane trivia at the Hard Rock Hideout, Rob’s got me busting out some Rough Cutt! Seriously, when has anyone given serious thought to Rough Cutt lately?

  1. Yes, I have listened to Rough Cutt in recent months. I was excited when Wounded Bird released the debut and Wants you on a two on one cd in 2005. I also still have the debut on vinyl. I think the vocals are better than the music, but it’s still decent.

  2. For me, they are one of those forgotten bands. I have the s/t and Wants You but after that, nothing. You never read/hear anyone discussing Rough Cutt and they were a big deal when they debuted. I’ll have to review it soon.

  3. You have been listening to some cool cd´s Steve. I like ROUGH CUTT too but didnt listen to their records(that i have on vinyl) for years.
    Right now i am playing the new 3 INCHE OF BLOOD album for the first time. I bought it already some weeks ago but now its the time to listen to it lol.
    Before i played one of my fave Thrash/early death metal album ever, IMMORTAL FORCE(1987) by MUTILATOR. I dont know if you know them but if you like POSSESSED, MANTAS/DEATH, old MASSACRE(USA), old SEPULTURA….you should check them out.
    I also played today:
    DORO:WARRIOR SOUL (one of my fave DORO releases).
    TAROT:THE SPELL OF IRON(great heavy metal from Finland)
    OMEN:BRUTALIS TANGO(Hungarian heavy metal)
    Take careeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

  4. Jay – I have to agree, Gene’s album bites. It’s like he tried too hard to be different…..again.

    Rene – From what I’ve heard from 3 Inches Of Blood, they are very good. They are one of the bands I am going to check out soon.
