Maximum Metal Rating Legend
Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.
Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler.
Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
Terrible - Waste of your life and time.
Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style.
Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings
is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a
qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being
technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.
Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent
broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big
financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually
adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to
keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band,
label, management, promoter, etc.
The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
Short three-song EP of dirty, bar rock covers
Short three-song EP of dirty, bar rock covers with the production dial set to "ragged hangover". Gravel-punk "Mama Kin" is a tough sell if you're used to the vocal stylings of the original. "Star Star" aka "Starfucker" has to be a live crowd pleaser. Saint Roch blues works best when the band locks into a rhythmic groove and lets the songs breath like on the pleasurable "New Orleans is Sinking".
Recommended for fans of: Aerosmith, Buckcherry, Black Stone Cherry, Angry Johnny and the Killbillies
