Guest review by

Power Metal. Some would say it's not a very diverse genre, but albums like this prove that it is. This isn't Helloween, but it's 100% power... well with maybe a little thrash thrown in LIKE IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE. Master Control is Liege Lord's 3rd and final release and it's head and shoulders above the earlier two. What sets it apart? Plain ol' song writing... and a much better vocalist who sounds like Dio, to me. These songs really stick in your head.

Rating: 9 Amazing US power, an another proof that power can be done without sounding like band's balls have been removed. Songs are definitely great, though there's maybe 2 or 3 weaker tracks. So not the best album ever, but can be regarded as a classic in USPM.
