I'm looking forward to checking this one out, apparently HMV were getting stock of it so I'll go and look tomorrow.
Classic Rock says it's more a classic thrash album than a prog masterpiece.

Made me want to buy it.

I'd never heard of Banger TV until a few minutes ago.

Flight 666 was good, i'll give him that.

Maybe extreme metal just ain't his thing.

In fairness it wasn't him who did the review.

I watch the banger reviews every week and they all know their stuff and have genres that they’re passionate about. You might be surprised to find that there is a heavy lean towards extreme metal over the other genres. With the exception of the guy up there who did Dream Theater who specialises in Prog and there is another guy who does trad.

The guy who runs it, Sam Dunn, his favourite music is Death and Black Metal, despite the more commercial films he’s made. But let’s face it, every metalhead likes Maiden, so a doc about them is going to sell! He’s also done Rush, Alice Cooper and Motörhead.

My problem was not that they didn't like the Akercocke album it's that just didn't even try break it down they just dismissed it altogether and from what they said it felt like they reviewed one track didn't like the vocals and just threw a review together based on that. Everyone has different tastes but if they were a bit more in depth with how they didn't like it I would of went along with it but they just said something along the lines of not sure what they wanted to achieve with these vocals and moved on to the next album.

I'm a big fan of Banger TV I watch it all the time and I love Sam Dunns passion but this neglectful attitude from the two reviewers rubbed me up the wrong way and if it was a band I wasn't a big fan of I would feel the same this is not a fan boy reaction. It just felt lazy to me

Reminds me of a Queensryche show i went to at Manchester Academy in 2004. The Terrorizer reviewer, a guy called Paul Stenning, said it was a poor show reliant on new material and the fans were pissed off at the lack of classic songs.

It wasn't announced prior but they played Operation Mindcrime in full (i was in heaven) and encored with Empire, Best i Can, NM156 and Screaming in Digital. Not a new song in sight or anything from post 1990 at all.

I never bought Terrorizer again.

I agree to a point but it was an end of year wrap up review of releases they'd missed out so it it was 5 or 6 albums in 20 minutes where they usually do 1 album for 10 minutes so it's not practical to go into depth!

I wasn't a fan of that album though sorry
