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.
A Dying Machine
Another good release from the talented guitarist
Mark Tremonti continues to keep busy with the touring behind Creed, the mammoth work load of Alter Bridge and this solo effort. 'A Dying Machine' should find plenty of likes and love from the fan base, capturing what has become the typical hard rock/slightly progressive sound from the band. I can't say I've been enamored with any of these solo albums, but I continue to play them and search for that "they finally nailed it" moment. Interesting, this album is paired with a novel written by both Tremonti and John Shirley.
Recommended for fans of: Alter Bridge, George Lynch
