  • "When Jethro Tull released Benefit in 1970, it signaled a new, more progressive musical direction for the English band. It also became one of the best-known albums of their career, which is going strong more 60 million records and 40 years later. The Grammy winning group is revisiting that pivotal album with a 2-CD/DVD-Audio collector s edition.The 2-CD/DVD collection comes loaded with a massive amount of music recorded by the band, which at the time featured: multi-instrumentalist frontman Ian Anderson, guitarist Martin Barre, drummer Clive Bunker, pianist John Evan, and bassist Glenn Cornick.The first disc contains the album s 10 original tracks, plus five bonus tracks that include both the U.K. and U.S. stereo versions of "Teacher. " All the songs are newly mixed by Steven Wilson and approved by Ian Anderson. The second disc includes newly remastered versions of rare tracks and singles recorded around the same time as Benefit, such as "Sweet Dream" in both stereo and mono.The audio-only DVD, which is available exclusively with this version, is packed with 58 tracks, including the album and bonus tracks in 5.1 surround sound. It also contains the U.K and U.S. versions of the album. The American version was sequenced differently and replaced the U.K. track "Alive and Well and Living In" with "Teacher. " In addition, the set also comes with a handsome booklet filled with rare photographs, an essay by Martin Webb, and interviews with band members."

  • Domestic jewelbox pressing with one bonus track."It’s always the highlight of my year when I discover a new “Who’s Who” of heavy metal, all-star line-up releasing a full-length album. Sometimes, they can really flop, sounding nearly identical to one of the member’s bands, like nothing at all has changed, and only release one album – maybe two. That being said however, some of these all-star mash-ups end up creating a freight train of hard-hitting heavy metal that doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. Sometimes they succeed in seemingly blending the influence from each member so perfectly that an entirely new and original sound comes soaring out of your speakers. Enter Ashes of Ares, the new project of ex-Iced Earth and Nevermore members, forming in 2012 and preparing the release of their debut, self-titled full-length in September.Fronting the band is truly a name that needs no introduction (though I plan to give one anyway), Matt Barlow. Despite the mile long “past members” list for American heavy metal band Iced Earth, Barlow fronted the band for the majority of their career thus far, boasting one of the most original and most recognized voices in American metal. He left the band, along with bassist (turned guitarist) Freddie Vidales in 2012 to focus on other acts, particularly Ashes of Ares. Joined by ex-Nevermore drummer, Van Williams, Ashes of Ares proves to live up to the destructive, war-drenched name the band has been given.The album runs up and down like a roller coaster from straight up thrashing, in your face American metal, to a more toned down and melodic side to the artists. It’s easy to hear the influence of all of the member’s past bands, yet they each definitely brought some new songwriting to the table. “The Messenger” opens the album up with a mellow and melodic guitar line, featuring Barlow’s insanely haunting, layered vocals. The chills immediately travel up my spine, right up until the song really kicks into gear. Moving on throughout the album, tracks “On Warriors Wings” and “This is My Hell” feature great groove, showcasing beautiful melodies and harmonies left and right between Barlow’s voice and the guitar lines. Meanwhile, the drum parts remain simple yet constructive, especially in “This is My Hell” where they are responsible for pushing along this musical tension, building-up to the song’s liberation. The falsetto vocal touches in this song really push it over the top for me, and it is easily my favorite moment on the album.While there are some tracks that get somewhat repetitive and lose my interest, the album redeems itself with “Chalice of Man” that hits hard and doesn’t let up. Immediately following is the album’s ballad-like moment, “The Answer”. Barlow soars above the music in the beginning, but the distorted guitar and bass lines answer quickly and the song picks up into a great tune. The lyrics are seriously emotional and heart-felt, which definitely isn’t lacking on the album (see “What I Am”), but it really sticks out on this song specifically. The slower tempo fits Barlow’s pipes perfectly, and the layered harmonies are flawless.As a whole, the album moves along unbelievably fast, despite the few tracks that do get repetitive. The songs are so creatively arranged, topped off with the god-like vocals of Matt Barlow, I really don’t see how anyone could pass up on this record. Right now, they have “Dead Man’s Plight” as a lyric video (see below), along with snippets of “The Messenger” and “The One Eyed King” on YouTube. If I still haven’t persuaded you on the music, have at it!I beg you to check out this new, unbelievable legacy that these men are creating! It will not disappoint!" - Metalholic

  • This is the last of the Porcupine Tree back catalog to be remixed/remastered by Steven Wilson. I'm not sure why he has a affection for DVD-A discs as opposed to hybrid SACD but he does so we live with it. Here is what is hidden inside the sexy super jewelbox: first off you get a CD with the entire album remixed into glorious 2.0 stereo. The second disc is a DVD-A (make sure it is compatible with your DVD player as not all of them can play these discs - most can). The album is remixed into 5.1 surround sound plus you get the stereo mix in 24 bit hi-rez. The DVD-A also features three bonus tracks (also mixed into 5.1).

  • "Legendary rock band Rush have unveiled details of its highly anticipated 2012 album, Clockwork Angels. The recording of Clockwork Angels began with Grammy Award winner Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones) who collaborated with the band on their 2007 studio album, Snakes and Arrows - and Rush co-producing. Lyrically, Clockwork Angels chronicles a young man's quest across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy as he attempts to follow his dreams. The story features lost cities, pirates, anarchists, exotic carnival, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life. With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours, Rush - Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart - is not only one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, but remains one of the most popular."

  • With new kid on the block, Mike Mangini, fully assimilated into the group, Dream Theater has come up with a stunning new album.  Expect nothing less than full on prog (with a nice tip of the cap to Rush in spots). Enigma Machine may be the best instrumental piece they've cooked up yet.  Highly recommended.

  • "To many of their American fans, Judas Priest's fifth album, Hell Bent for Leather, has become synonymous both with the group's adoption of a leather-and-studs wardrobe (a byproduct of singer Rob Halford's then still closeted gay lifestyle) and with crystallizing the more concise and versatile heavy rock songwriting that would be repeatedly polished to a platinum sheen by the early '80s. Funny thing is, Priest fans everywhere but the U.S. felt the very same ways about Priest's Killing Machine LP, which is not at all surprising once one realizes they are in fact the same album, by and large. As the story goes, Columbia Records' U.S. office objected to the original title's violent connotations and insisted on using the far more sexually charged, homoerotic alternative -- making this possibly the first and last occasion in history in which Europe chose violence over sex and America sex over violence, instead of the other way 'round. Anyway, other than the album titles and the addition of Priest's cover of Fleetwood Mac's "The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown)" to the U.S. track listing, both editions were otherwise virtually identical, down to the cover art and remaining song sequencing. Which brings us back to the aforementioned laser-focused but diverse songs contained within. On the one hand, high-powered juggernauts like "Delivering the Goods," "Running Wild," and "Hell Bent for Leather" kept the Priest metal machine firing on all cylinders; on the other, infectious numbers like "Rock Forever," "Take on the World," and "Burnin' Up" crossed new thresholds of rock radio accessibility; and, having broken through the "ballad barrier" with Stained Class' "Beyond the Realms of Death," the band now felt emboldened to push well beyond it with ever more broadly appealing new offerings like "Evening Star" and "Before the Dawn." These are the real reasons, above all else, why Killing Machine/Hell Bent for Leather was such a pivotal album in Judas Priest's career, and remains a favorite among fans across the world, no matter what title is attached to it." - Allmusic

  • "Reading the full name of this release – Jakszyk, Fripp And Collins With Levin And Harrison – A Scarcity Of Miracles – A King Crimson ProjeKct – leads to one central and almost unbelievable thought: this must be a new King Crimson album after all these years (the last album was released in 2003). But it is just like Robert Fripp, King Crimson’s mastermind and guitarist, wrote in the album’s liner notes: listening to A Scarcity Of Miracles is “like meeting a close member of the [King Crimson] family for the first time”.The opening title track already hints at the past with a long soundscape intro featuring the well-known Fripp guitar synthesizer sound. But there is more: Mel Collins’ well-placed saxophone notes (his first work with Fripp since King Crimson’s 1974 masterpiece Red) and Jakko Jakszyk’s guitar lines enhance the sound to a new level. Adding the most interesting parts are Tony Levin with his superb trademark bass work and finally Gavin Harrison with his brilliant drumming, known from Porcupine Tree. They are the driving force of the song, together with the initial Fripp soundscape. The song itself is a somehow sad mid-tempo ballad offering a sonic beauty that has been rarely heard before in the history of King Crimson. But this seems to be the overall theme of the album as all songs are rather melancholic and only have the aggressive touch of the previous albums in very few moments.The second track “The Price We Pay” starts with another famous Crimson element: the incorporation of Eastern music. Jakszyk plays a Gu Zheng, a Chinese zither, during the song but also the song’s structure has the feeling of the 80’s King Crimson line-up and reminds me of their Gamelan-inspired pop ballads. “Secrets” and “This House” are similar but the first halves of both songs are based on soundscapes. Yet the final, slightly faster part of “This House” is one of the album’s greatest moments. All five musicians take the song to a higher level and give their best.“The Other Man” again features the Gu Zheng in a very prominent role during the song’s intro. This time the song is harder and more aggressive than the rest of the album, coming close to the previous sound of King Crimson.The last song “The Light Of Day” is played without drums but with so many beautiful textures and great panning and delay effects that especially this song becomes a real treat for headphone listening.Very interesting is the fact that most of the songs are based on soundscapes which carry on through the whole tracks most of the time. The interplay between Jakszyk, Fripp and Collins reminds me of the similar guitar/saxophone soundscapes of Travis & Fripp. Furthermore Jakszyk’s vocals are often harmonized, nevertheless they really fit to the music and are very good. As a last note I have to emphasize the album’s brilliant mastering and its powerful but crystal-clear and natural sound. I’ve rarely heard such a great sound before.After all, this album simply is fantastic. It is unbelievable how the musicians play through the songs in such a seemingly simple manner but actually the songs are very complex. It might not be King Crimson as usual but so many elements are present. This music really is something special and another huge development in the Crimson history but it is even more: here, we have a new aspect of progressive rock, something which hasn’t been heard before at all." -Alternative Matter
