Top five hard rock/metal reunion albums
1-Celtic Frost-Monotheist, 2006
Tom G. and his band came back after a fifteen year absence and put out a monster of an album. It not only picked up where they left off, but it broke considerable ground as well.
2-Deep Purple-Perfect Strangers, 1984
Deep Purple's reunion album was a stylish effort that put that right back on the map. Still holds up well 20+ plus years later as well.
3-Iron Maiden-Brave new world, 2000
Bruce and Adrian return and the band is instantly back on the right track. It was sad being without this line-up of Maiden for almost a decade, but they have almost made up for it since the reformation.
4-Mercyful Fate-In the shadows, 1993
Most of the original lineup was back after being apart for almost a decade. The sound was somewhat different, but none the less very good.
5-The Cult-Beyond good and evil, 2001
The Cult roar back with a heavy effort that puts to rest the idea that reunion album sound tired and old.
***That's going to wrap up Reunion album week. In July I will have "80's EP week" as my theme week.
