you spin me round

Edition Eight 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. Orphaned Land: From Orpheus (single) (Century Media) reviewed by Liz Medhurst

"As a stand alone track, 'Like Orpheus' is brilliant, in the context of the album it is breath-taking."

2. Downes Braid Association: Skyscraper Souls (X2X Records / Cherry Red) reviewed by Andy Rawll
Angel on Your Shoulder

"Hot pop, jumping prog, this album thrilled MetalTalk's radio stars. A modern progressive pop album to savour."

Additional Track: The Bad Flowers: Thunder Child

3. The Cherry Dolls: Viva La Dolls (Golden Robot Records) reviewed by Johnny Main
Begging You Please
Bottom Of The Well

"Best described as a rock album with a punky edge, there are no fancy gimmicks here, just driving guitar and heavy drums with the vocals very loud in the mix - and I have to say that it's not half bad."

4. Pink Cream 69: Headstrong (Frontiers) reviewed by Brian Boyle
Walls Come Down
Path Of Destiny
Man of Sorrow

"Packed with addictive hooks and towering vocals expertly produced by their long-serving bass player Dennis Ward."

Additional Tracks:
Megaherz : Vorhang Auf
Halford: Winter Song

Part 2:

Intro Track: Ronnie James Dio/Tony Iommi: God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman

1. Absolva: Defiance (Rocksector Records) reviewed by Steve Göldby
Never Back Down (Acoustic)

"A proper band who love what they do, and the quality never diminishes. I have no idea how Chris (Appleton) keeps coming up with great Metal tunes over and over again."

Additional Track: Escape The Fate: I Am Human

2. Antoine's Legacy: Antoine's Legacy (Sacred Recordings) reviewed by Andy Rawll
As The Moon Shatters

"There's depth, dynamics and melody in abundance that elevates the songs from the norm. Overall, it's a symphonic prog Metal treat that deserves a broad audience."

3. Asking Alexandria: Asking Alexandria (Sumerian Records) reviewed by Liz Medhurst
Into The Fire
Rise Up

"The overall style is Arena rock, full-on anthems, they haven't gone home, they've gone bigger. It suits them, there's nothing here that sounds contrived."

4. Outlaws and Moonshine: Devil In The Moonshine (Sumerian Records) reviewed by Johnny Main
Here Comes Bobby
Cootie Brown

"If you’re a fan of Southern Rock at all, then this album needs to be in your CD collection"

Additional Track: Leaves Eyes: Sign Of The Dragonhead


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.
