With "One Size Fits All" Pink Cream 69 begin to take their first steps into what they would eventually evolve into today. Although there is still a bit of the party rock element left over from the self titled debut, there also a sense of maturity and less silliness. Andi has more control over his voice than he did on the former album and he has delivered some stellar songs on here as well.

Seven years after "Licanthrope", all is set for the release of "Microsolco", the highly anticipated new album of new prog band Mangala Vallis. A long span of time, during which many things have happened such as line-up changes, with the exit from the band of Bernardo Lanzetti (which continues his artistic collaboration with Gigi Cavalli Cocchi and Cristiano Roversi on the CCLR project) and Riccardo Sgavetti (bass player), and the arrival of Roberto Tiranti, extraordinarily gifted singer and bassist and with a rich pedigree (New Trolls, Labyrinth, Ian Paice and Glenn Hughes).

In 2011, the Numero Group got in touch with Codeine and pitched the idea of reissuing the band's three records, complete with bonus tracks and the label's usual archival care. The band agreed and the results were beautifully packaged, wonderful-sounding remasters of each release (1991's Frigid Stars LP, 1992's Barely Real, and 1993's The White Birch) complete with enough bonus tracks to double the running length. The albums were combined together for the limited-edition box set When I See the Sun, which included a large foldout poster but no extra music.

In the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien, Balrogs were spirits of fire. The Balrogs originated as Maiar, beings of the same kind as Sauron himself. They were primordial spirits that had allied themselves with Melkor in ancient times, and became the most feared of his servants, especially during the Wars of Beleriand in the First Age. One, possibly the last living Balrog in Arda, was defeated by Gandalf in "The Lord of the Rings"-trilogy. Debut album from this Italian band who play true heavy metal as defined by legends like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.

As a result, it's one of the better budget-line B.B. King compilations on the market.

In the same year New Trolls published an anthology of their hits and "Concerto Grosso n°2": Luis Bacalov and Sergio Bardotti proposed to go on with the musical experiment started in 1971 and the success was immediate.

In 1971 New Trolls released the album which was to become their trademark: Concerto grosso per i New Trolls. The album was a fantastic example of early symphonic rock experimentation, with classical music arrangements written by composer Luis Enriquez Bacalov. As the first effort in Italy to merge rock music with classical treatments, this album is still considered one of the most important Italian progressive rock releases ever. Japanese reissue of the progressive rock act's 1991 album.

Risk's loveable heavy metal zoo returns for a third round. "Dirty Surfaces" is yet another speed metal feast from Risk. However, this time around they offer a bit more variety. 1990, we all know it very well, marked the end of the first thrash metal epoch and the here reviewed album pays tribute to this fact.
