you spin me round

Edition Six of MetalTalk's new album review radio show, You Spin Me Round, is available on our On Demand page now.

Here's the running order:

Part 1:

1. Down 'n' Outz: The Further Live Adventures Of (new), My Re-Generation (re-issue), and The Further Adventures Of (re-issue) (Frontiers Records) reviewed by Johnny Churchill.
The Journey
Funeral For a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding

"The songs really suit Joe Eliot's voice and alongside the superb and slick musicianship of the band, he shows off surprisingly strong singing abilities, which I think often get buried under Def Leppard's power chords and bombast. Superb slices of English Rock 'n' Roll"

FKÜ - 1981 (Despotz Records) reviewed by Steve Göldby
Evil Dead
The House By The Cemetery
Burial Ground

"Everything you can expect from a modern trash album – Metal that is brutal, loud, crushing and extremely well produced."

Santa Cruz - Bad Blood Rising (M-Theory Audio) reviewed by Carlan Braid
Get Me Out Of California
Pure Fucking Adrenaline

"This band just keep getting better. The high energy of this album will have you bouncing in your seat."

Additional Track: Heidevolk - Ontwaakt ('Awaken')

Part 2:

1. Quatro, Scott & Powell - QSP (Sony Music) reviewed by Andy Rawll
The Price Of Love'
'Mend A Broken Heart'

"What's great is the depth and unpredictability of the performances, a diverse and delightful album"

2.Scream Serenity – 'Eye of the Storm' (3Ms Music) reviewed by Johnny Main
Better Off
Run Away

"A top notch album for me… it just gets better and better with repeated listens."

3.Dirty Thrills - Heavy Living (Frontiers) reviewed by Brian Boyle
I'll Be With You
Law Man

"Three years on from their debut album Heavy Living sees them return with a much more rounded effort, they also incorporate much larger elements of funk, straight up hard rock and even a few psychedelic tones."

4.The New Roses – 'One More For The Road' (Napalm Records) reviewed by Johnny Main
Quarter To Twelve
New Roses - Life Ain't Easy (For A Boy With Long Hair)

"A fabulous album that is chock full of good time anthems… if you like straight-ahead rock n' roll with no frills, then this is certainly the album for you."

5.Lovebites – Awakening From Abyss (Sliptrick records) reviewed by Steve Göldby

"These vibrant young ladies have already made an impact in the industry. This is most definitely a band with a big future."

Additional Track: Bernie Tormé, Dublin Cowboy
