In 1983, both Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe released albums that would not only skyrocket them into rockstar royalty but also (for better or worse) shape the landscape of glam rock and hair metal in the 80s. But do “Pyromania” and “Shout At The Devil” still hold up after nearly 40 years?

As we prepare for Metallica’s new album “72 Seasons” and massive stadium tour around the world, we find ourselves wondering: why is it taking so long to crown the “Next Metallica”? Will a rising band in metal (or rock, for that matter) ever reach the globally massive success of a band like Metallica? Or will Metallica be the last heavy band to ever headline stadium tours and sell millions of records?

We’ve talked about how Nickelback is easily one of music’s most polarizing bands (listen here:  https://youtu.be/l6W11KCNLe4). But does the Canadian rock outfit prove naysayers wrong with “Get Rollin’” (their 10th album and first in more than five years)?

When we reviewed Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Unlimited Love” back in April, we could never have imagined they’d release ANOTHER double album just a few short months later. But what does “Return of the Dream Canteen” say about the current state of RHCP? Is RHCP’s onslaught of double albums in 2022 (their first in more than 15 years with John Frusciante) a sign of creative reinvigoration or stale laziness?

On paper, an Ozzy Osbourne solo album that enlists a slew of all-stars for guest appearances (including Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi, Jeff Beck, Eric Claption, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith, Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, Zakk Wylde, Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready… just to name a few) should be making massive fans like us bounce off the walls with joy… so why does “Patient Number 9” leave us feeling so u...
