you spin me round

Edition Seven 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. Trucker Diablo: Fighting For Everything (self-released) reviewed by Brian Boyle
Born Trucker
Voodoo II
Let's Just Ride

"It's another pulverising orgy of beer and whisky-soaked hard rock. The big hitters keep on coming."

2. Austin Gold: Before Dark Clouds (Jigsaw) reviewed by Andy Rawll
Home Ain't Home
Another Kind Of Bad
Before Dark Clouds

"Perfectly balanced collection of great songs that suggest that these young Peterborough princes are solid gold contenders to King King's throne"

3. Operation Mindcrime: A New Reality (Frontiers) reviewed by Johnny Main
It Was Always You
The Wave

"Like the previous volume there's some great tracks here. Vocally, Geoff is very much on form, and the full production sounds great."

4. Various Artists: Rockin' The Blues (Provogue/Mascot Label Group) reviewed by Liz Medhurst
Beth Hart: Love Is A Lie
Supersonic Blues Machine: L.O.V.E.
Gary Hoey: Dust And Bones

"The overall feeling is that of wanting to go and check out more from each artist, and it's a mouth-watering taste of what to expect on the tour. See you in March."

Additional Track: Hightown Parade: Choose

Part 2:

Intro Track:Sol Invictus: Thea Gilmore

1. Cheap Trick: Christmas Christmas (Big Machine Records) reviewed by Liz Medhurst
Merry Christmas Darlings
Run Rudolph Run

"It's festive glammed up power pop that we know and love them for. This album is most definitely Cheap Trick, and there's always room for plenty of that."

2. Neal Schon: Ave Maria (Schon Music) reviewed by Liz Medhurst
Ave Maria
Open Arms

"It's different, it's good. I like versions that take songs somewhere else."

3. Blackmore's Night: Winter Carols (2017 re-issue) (Minstrel Hall Music) reviewed by Johnny Main
Christmas Eve
God Rest You Merry Gentleman

"A veritable feast of Christmas classics as well as a couple of original numbers thrown in for good measure."

Additional Tracks:
Christopher Lee: Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing
Scythia: Of Santa
Magnum: Without Love
Anvil: Ego
StoneWire: Winter's Hold
Blind Guardian: The Bard's Song


You Spin Me Round is presented by Deputy Editor Liz Medhurst and features MetalTalk writers reviewing the albums.

The show airs on TotalRock every Monday night at 10.00pm UK Time here and is available thereafter on our On Demand page here.
