Velvet Revolver - Live in Houston DVD
Review by Gary Hill
If you haven’t heard Velvet Revolver, there’s a very good chance you’ve heard some of the members of the band in other projects.

Alice Cooper - A Fistful of Alice
Review by Gary Hill
It has been said that this release is redundant because hard-core Alice Cooper fans already have a solid live album in The Alice Cooper Show. However, I find that this release is a a considerably better recording, and that the performance presented herein is superior to that one.

Alice Cooper - Along Came A Spider
Review by Gary Hill
Alice Cooper is a performer who has (in the opinion of this reviewer) always had a problem with consistency. Sometimes it’s represented with an album that has some awesome music, but a few songs that leave you scratching your head.

Derek Sherinian - Blood of the Snake
Review by Gary Hill
Derek Sherinian always seems to be looking for new ways to stretch out musically and this time around he's brought a lot of friends on board to help him in that process. The end result is Blood of the Snake, a disc that is arguably his most diverse. It also might well be his strongest album ever.

Doro - Calling the Wild
Review by Gary Hill
In the 1980’s Doro Pesch fronted the German metal band Warlock. That band is no more, but Doro has kept her career and love of metal alive through the years. This new disc is her first release in the US in many years, but she has continued releasing albums in Europe the entire time.

You could say that there are enough Alice Cooper compilations out there. Here’s the thing, though.

It’s interesting listening to something nearly two decades after it was first released and trying to recall your first impressions.

Alice Cooper - Hey Stoopid
Review by Gary Hill

This album showcases a metal perpective on the classic Cooper sound and also shows prog tendencies in several places. Alice is joined on this album by many musicians, including several very notables guests (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Ozzy Osbourne and others).

Various Artists - Les Paul and Friends: Tribute to a Legend
Review by Gary Hill
When you hear “tribute album” you usually think of a disc that features a number of artists playing songs by the artist to whom the disc is being dedicated. Well, this one has a bit of a twist.

Chic - Live at the Budokan DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Remembering the days when rock music was seemingly fighting with disco for its very survival – or at least it seemed like it. Disco really felt like some evil monster.

Various Artists - Steinway To Heaven
Review by Gary Hill
It seems like a rather novel, but still somewhat obvious concept. Take various keyboardists, mostly from the world of progressive rock and have them record various classical piano pieces.

Alice Cooper - The Last Temptation
Review by Gary Hill
This album is show biz from Cooper. It really feels like much of the high entertainment of `70`s era Cooper, while bringing a new intensity and power to them. This one has plenty of spooky moments along with humor.

Review by Gary Hill
Well before Metallica's Garage Inc., Guns and Roses did their take on their own influences. The result is The Spaghetti Incident?.

Carmine Appice - Ultimate Guitar Zeus
Review by Gary Hill
An album like this could be a tricky venture. Essentially the concept is a series of songs with the same basic core band.
