Best Of 2007 - 2007 Dangerzone
A summary of 2007 from Dangerzone (Alun).

Albums Of The Year

Status Quo - In Search of the Fourth Chord
One of the best pure boogie albums in many moons. Quo finally regained their vintage 70's foot stomping form with a series of riffs and tracks that helped restore belief in a band who have struggled for decades. Classic material.

White Wolf - Victim of the Spotlight
Superb comeback from the long dormant Canadian melodic rockers. 'America (Hello Again) ranks with anything off their two 80's gems.

Exodus - The Atrocity Exhibition....Exhibition A
Another clinical display of thrash from the Bay Area legends, speed and more speed, with some of the heaviest riffing from Gary Holt yet.

Rose Tattoo - Bloodbrothers
Angry and the lads strike again! Aussie hard rock at its finest and almost impossible to believe the Tats are able to rival the best work of their vintage 1978-82 years, albeit with an altered lineup.

Megadeth - United Abominations
Dave Mustaine finally regains some of the attitude that went missing after 1990, churning out some vicious speed metal, typically snarling vocals and epic guitar solo's recalling 'Rust In Peace', for Megadeth's best album since 1992.

U.D.O. - Mastercutor
Prolific as always, Udo served up a consistent release here, with some excellent tracks, including the rampaging 'Master of Disaster' and 'Walker in the Dark', the latter concerning a pervert stealing underwear off clothes lines under the cover of darkness and sniffing them!

Saxon - The Inner Sanctum
Biff and the lads defy the odds again with another revitalising set of classic Saxon, with anthems found everywhere, namely 'Red Star Falling', 'Need for Speed' and 'Let Me Feel Your Power' among the pick of the bunch.

W.A.S.P. - Dominator
Blackie Lawless can still mix it up when he wants to and this very listenable album was the best I've heard from W.A.S.P. since 1999. Then again I haven't heard anything since then!

Manowar - Gods of War
Despite the laboured concept approach concerning 'Odin', Manowar did a lot here to banish the horrific 2002 ' Warriors of the World', even if true heaviness was spread rather thinly.

Summary:
2007 passed me by for the most part as I was off low crawling through sand clutching an M-16 in 100 degree temperatures during Army basic training. There were a few decent efforts early in the year from veteran artists, but nothing worth remembering following which caught my ear as I attempted to make up for lost time. About time for that AC/DC album isn't it?
