Accept - 1979 Accept
For me, 'Accept' has always been a charming period-piece, and it was their first album that I ever bought, so with that in mind, I have tracked their career from the outset, rather than being introduced to the band halfway through.

Accept - 1981 Breaker
After a pair of uneven albums to open their career, Accept finally started coming into their own with 'Breaker' during the legendary year of 1981.

Accept - 1982 Restless And Wild
Until Udo departed in 1986 it's fair to say Accept never recorded a poor album. 'Balls To The Wall' may have been their highest profile release, but 'Restless And Wild' was undoubtedly their best.

Accept - 1985 Kaizoku-Ban (Live, Mini LP)
'Kaizoku-Ban' was recorded during September 1985 in Nagoya, Japan. It's technically a Mini-LP, with four tracks from 'Metal Heart' (released in March 1985) and two tracks from 'Balls To The Wall' released in 1983.

Accept - 1985 Metal Heart
With 'Metal Heart' Udo voiced openly his displeasure at a more mainstream sound, less savage and more melodic. It undermined their progress, as Udo was easily Accept's most recognisable face. Scorpions producer Dieter Dierks was at the helm..

Accept - 1989 Eat The Heat
This is of course the most controversial album of Accept's career, reason being the absence of original vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, who by the time of 'Eat The Heat's' release in 1989, had already recorded two solo albums.

Accept - 1993 Objection Overruled
In retrospect 'Objection Overruled' was easily the best of the three 70's albums and rates alongside 'Blood Of The Nations' as the bands finest work in the last 20 years.

Accept - 1996 Predator
For 'Predator' Accept employed famed producer Michael Wagener, the German connection intact. 'Predator' was another departure, with Peter Baltes assuming vocals for three tracks, something he had not done since 1980's 'Breaker'. Musically it was a combination of old and new Accept, a far more satisfying mixture.

Accept - 2010 Blood Of The Nations
In a year that's thrown up some tremendous comebacks by veteran acts, Accept have now joined the list and in convincing fashion.

Accept - 2012 Stalingrad
Of all the veteran metal bands out there still plying their trade Accept are the pick of the bunch by a mile. In fact I'd go as far to say they're the best metal band in existence right now. High praise indeed, but the consistency of 'Stalingrad' is a notch above what most bands produce these days.

Accept - 2014 Blind Rage
Something about this album just doesn't quite hit the mark for me. It's not genuinely heavy and the bands trademark vocals harmonies and signature sounds fall flat.

Accept - 2017 Restless And Live (Blind Rage - Live In Europe 2015)
There's really no way to recommend this exercise in excess. Surely two disc live affairs went out before the turn of the century.

Accept - 2017 The Rise Of Chaos
If Accept started the Mark Tornillo era with a bang in 2010, then it's been all downhill ever since. Accept have somehow turned into one of the most boring bands in the world, competing with Saxon for the crown.

Nightwish - 2002 Century Child
For me the latest album by Nightwish is one of the highlights of 2002. I feel a bit ashamed that, being a melodic metal fan, I hadn't previously taken notice of this stunning band. In some ways I was skeptical about female operatic vocals fronting a metal band, expecting a gothic sound rather than the symphonic melodic metal that Nightwish are about. Actually I can't get over how melodic this band is.

U.D.O - 1991 Timebomb
'Timebomb' was a comeback of major proportions, in much the same way that Iron Maiden and Judas Priest acheived with 'No Prayer For The Dying' and 'Painkiller' respectively.

U.D.O - 2009 Dominator
It says something for Udo's devotion to his band that he eschewed another Accept reunion in order to devote all his attention to the future of U.D.O., who are back on the scene once again, with their fifth studio album of the decade..

U.D.O - 2011 Rev-Raptor
As much as I didn't want to, I can't help but compare the latest offering from U.D.O. to Accept's excellent 2010 comeback release 'Blood Of The Nations.' There's no denying Udo's status as a metal legend, but I can't help but feel 'Rev-Raptor' pales into insignificance compared to the trail Accept are currently blazing.

U.D.O - 2013 Steelhammer
'Steelhammer' has a cleaner production than the last few albums and is noticeably heavier, but once again there's an abundance of tracks; 14 to be exact. I've read some gushing reviews of 'Steelhammer' which are a tad excessive, but still deserved.

U.D.O - 2015 Decadent
As predictable as a failed Liverpool title bid, every two years on the dot you're guaranteed a new U.D.O. album. That statement probably seems negative given the Liverpool comparison and in a way it's meant to be.
