    Yes, it's true, Jason is back and we all love Jason! But if we are perfectly honest this is not a great record. Im not saying that is a bad one but it left me with nothing too remarkable. Although the band has potential, lets hope better records for the future. Full Review »

    The first solo album by Jason Newsted is nothing short of what we expected. "Heavy Metal Music" does exactly what it says on the tin. It is a blast of pure, unadulterated heavy metal. It is a wonder why Newsted's former employers Metallica didn't let him write too many songs when they are as good as this. The two standout songs are "Soldierhead" and "King of the Underdogs". This a fun album essential for any heavy metal purist. Full Review »
