Alanna's Ratings and Reviews

 Dio - Holy Diver
Alanna's Rating: 9/10

This is absolutely *classic*. Not one song sounds out of place, the running order is smooth with nary a hiccup of disinterest along the way. Dio's commanding voice along with the catchy, powerful songs make for an enchanting album. "Caught In the Middle", "Straight Through the Heart" and "Invisible" are tracks that often get overlooked, but shame on those that skip them in favor of the popular pieces. Certainly the title track and "Rainbow in the Dark" are awesome examples of classy, hook laden metal, but they are not the only great songs that abound on this disc. The lyrics are also of special note, lyrical, fantastical and bordering on strange at times, their imagery burns into your mind as vividly as the music that accompanies them.

 Europe - Last Look at Eden
Alanna's Rating: 4.5/10

I agree, this album is not a good example of rock brought into the modern times. It lacks the hooks and melodies that are a necessity for a band like Europe. Winger's "Karma" is an excellent example of how this should be done, while Europe's is another lackluster showing of tedium, monotony and boredom.

 Pretty Maids - Spooked
Alanna's Rating: 9/10

Oh wow, yes I LOVE this album and its been a surefire favorite since it first came out. "If It Can't Be Love" is just a genius of an infectious epic ballad. A bold, powerful sweeping statement that lavishes on the emotion without holding back, not even for an instant. "Your Mind Is Where the Money Is" has an under appreciated chorus, it takes a few spins but once it sinks its hooks, it is a difficult song to shake.

This is just a really solid, extremely well balanced melodic rock album (with the emphasis on "rock"). It has just enough of a modern touch to seem timeless, the years never seem to touch this one. A must-have rock album, and those that dismissed it will be sorry they did so once they get a few listens in.

 Rhapsody (of Fire) - Legendary Tales
Alanna's Rating: 8/10

This was an album that just *blew me away* completely... the symphonic sound alongside the pipes of Fabio Lione and the guitar stylings of Luca Turilli was some kind of neo-classical/power metal marriage in harmony heaven. The faery-like flitterings of "Forest of Unicorns", the thunderous gallop of "Warriors of Ice" and the force of "Rage of Winter" are of special note.
