The band I underrated
I think that I wrote a while ago about bands that I underrated, but I just wanted to mention a band that I really misjudged for years. I had a friend in high school that really liked Accept and borrowed his tapes and listened to them and thought they were alright, but never bought any of their stuff then. I did pick up a few of their albums cheap in the early 90's when a record store was going out of business, but didn't listen to them too much. Like maybe two years ago I picked up "Balls to the wall" cheap and decided to give them another chance. It was really way better than I remember it. Yes, the lyrics were odd, but the music was really solid and I like Udo's voice no matter what every else may think. Then I got "Metal Heart" too long ago and it was even better. "Metal Heart" was really well written and it plays to the band's strengths. I would be willing to bet that I have listened to this album more than any other album in the last six months. They have parts that sound like AC/DC and Judas Priest, but they developed their own sound as well. I also just got a double CD that has "Breaker" and "I'm a rebel" and I enjoyed both of them as well. Now I am looking forward to rediscovering some of their other albums.
