Crazy, I forgot I had actually reviewed Total 13 itself! But I did.

What did you think of Rock 'n Roll Is Dead, Ned? I couldn't get into it at first, but it definitely grew on me. Not as good as By the Grace of God (those keyboards really filled out their sound), but fun nonetheless.

I've been slack with the more recent records! Need to catch up on them as I can here, but your comment about how all you need are a couple means I haven't looked much beyond the older ones I have already, honestly. Still, I figure I'll get Rock 'n Roll is Dead at some point.

Do you not have By the Grace of God?! You have to get that one, right now! It's their most 80s arena rock record, which works really well for them. "It's Good but It Just Ain't Right" is so good I can't even figure out how to describe it. Positively epic.

Actually, I do know how to describe "It's Good but It Just Ain't Right:" it's good, but it just ain't right.

Gluecifer was pretty dissapointing. I had a hard time getting through the two CDs I heard and their songs never stuck with me at all. They have a bunch of energy and I bet they would be fun to get drunk in a club and see, but their records did not catch with me.

The Hellacopters on the other hand have some great songs and their later stuff is really good 70s style hard rock. I never did pickup Rock and Roll is Dead, but I think High Visibility and By the Grace of God are even better than the early more raw records. Their albums are not perfect, but there are a couple of great songs on each of their albums.

The Hellacopters is one newer band that I have been able to get some older guys whose rock tastes are 70s to the bone to really like.

That would be The Hellacopters, considering Gluecifer are Norwegians and, as such, have to be disqualified.

Why must you always ruin our fun, Geir?

one year passes...

Anyone got the CD/vinyl box thing? Can someone explain it to me? How is it possible to have a vinyl/CD combo?

And while we're at it, are the patch and pin cool?

randomly I picked up the cd for a coin yesterday.
and damn, this is way beyond what I expected (i.e. more Hives stuff).
proper full on 80s rock excess with massive tunes.
best random for-a-coin cd I have got in ages.
