CD Reviews

The birth of more than a Metal band
James Gray | Orlando, Florida, USA | 01/31/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Loudness' first album is not only one of the greatest debut albums of any Metal band ever, but the debut of a turn of ideas in metal in general. It can be said that the guitar ideas expressed in this album are nothing new, while still being original, but there is a definite vibe and overall atmosphere to it that few other metal albums contain. More than just party rock, the absence of English lyrics make for a more rewarding listen. Rock/Metal lyrics generally succumb to a certain banality due to the importance placed on the guitar work, so in this case, you can feel the lyrics and what the singer wanted to get across instead of focusing on what might not be the most thoughtful lyrics. (Unless of course you understand Japanese, in which case you will still enjoy the album as a whole.) Highly recommended."
Loudness Birthday Eve Remastered

"This is Loudness' debut album from 1981. Although the music has a 70's sound and feel, it sounds great nonetheless. This 24-bit remastered release includes two extra tracks: 'Burning Love' and 'Bad News' -- these bonus tracks are worthwhile, and pretty much on par with the sound of this album. Although I have no trouble listening to the entire album, 'Loudness' and 'To Be Demon' are my favorites from the original release."
