When Alice Cooper departed from his original band and went off as a solo artist in 1975, he became an entirely new entity; a theatrical musical force of nature. Despite how powerfully such classic albums as ‘Love It To Death’ and ‘Billion Dollar Babies’ rocked our lives, Alice would take the world on a mad carnival ride like never before with his timeless masterpiece, ‘Welcome To My Nightmare’.

Those memorable blues rock riffs that scatter Great White’s biggest hits are in excess with ‘Elation’, and I have to say that new lead singer Terry Ilous does a leviathan of a job on the new record. There are some notable similarities between his and original lead vocalist Jack Russell’s; however, Terry brings his own personality and singing style into ‘Elation’, and completely adds another depth to Great White and their music.

That little ol’ band from Texas have slipped on their cheap sunglasses and are hitting 2012 hard from all directions with their new album, ‘La Futura’. That’s right, ZZ Top is back, and arguably have returned stronger than ever. It’s been over 9 years since the world has been last spun by the Top with a new album, but this Texan trio have more than made up for the lost time, with their strongest album since ‘Eliminator’.

Now is ‘Monster’ necessarily stronger than such classic albums as ‘Love Gun’ and ‘Rock And Roll Over’? Absolutely not, however it’s definitely up there with the best of them. The album jump starts at supersonic speeds with “Hell or Hallelujah”, a tune which bears some strong similarities to the classic “I Stole Your Love”, as well as some strong soloing which sounds right in line with something Angus Young might shred.
