Lizzy Borden has spent nearly 25 years creating some of the most theatrical metal in existence and in the process has become nothing short of a metal icon. Releasing classics such as Love You to Pieces (1985) and Master of Disguise (1989) and obliterating audiences worldwide with a stage show that rivals that of Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper. The glam-poppy Lizzy Borden was also ran in the hair metal sweepstakes, but its debut album, 1985's Love You to Pieces, holds up better than many other documents from the era. Metal Blade reissued Love You to Pieces in 2002, remastering the album and adding four demo songs as bonus tracks. It's a nice reissue overall.

Reckless Love is the debut, self-titled album from Finnish glam metal band Reckless Love. The album was released on February 10, 2010 on Spinefarm Records and entered the Finnish National Charts at number 13. A great debut offering by a band that sounds like the 80's!
Animal Attraction is the second album from Finnish glam metal band Reckless Love. It was released on November 7, 2011 through Spinefarm Records and debuted at number 10 on the national Finnish Charts. Although their image implies their sound would be sleazier, what you actually get is Def Leppard and Bon Jovi inspired stadium rock, with huge radio friendly sing-along choruses. It’s all highly polished stuff with hooks aplenty and a lush sound which should cross them over into mainstream circles. If you are a fan of 80′s style hard rock and pop metal, you are going to love this set of tunes on Animal Attraction!

The 11th studio long-player from the veteran hard rockers, the aptly, though rather lazily, named XI marks the return of vocalist Mike Howe to the Metal Church fold – Ronny Munroe left the group in 2014 to "pursue other interests." Hearing Howe's sinister and instantly recognizable banshee wail reunited with showrunner/guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof's taut, melodic riffing is a thrill, especially for longtime fans…

83. The Jimi Hendrix Experience, ‘Axis: Bold as Love’
Jimi Hendrix’s first album remade rock & roll with guitar magic that no one had ever dreamed of; his second album had even more sorcery.
On the surface, the music of Love/Hate's debut may seem no different than most any late-'80s L.A. pop-metal, but the band's performance exudes a fury and belligerence that posers such as Poison or Warrant could never even grasp; actually, they would turn on their heels and run away screaming from it. The band literally "plays on 11," from the very first crunching power chord of the title track to the last cymbal crash of the frenzied "Hell Ca., Pop. 4." In between, they alternate the sheer power of "Rock Queen," "One More Round," and "Straightjacket" with the haunting yet beautiful melodies of "Mary Jane" and "She's an Angel"…
