For that reason you don't like AOR?

Hell Bent is a great album, Ram has certainly it's moments.

AOR sucks, everyone knows that.

Oh, Angel of Retribution, gotcha. That's awesome.

I wasn't saying Angel was a bad album because of that. Musically it is great, if a bit uneven. I would have liked it a lot more as a total package if it didn't have that issue with the lyrics. Or at the very least they could have thrown all the titles in to one song like Victory or Blood of the Kings.

We can mostly agree

Musically it's not even that bad. But the vocals...

I don't know, the general sound of AOR riffs is pretty fucking horrible...

Mostly yes, but as always, there are exceptions.

It's like with Grindcore

I'm not sure what you guys are talking about. AOR is one of their best albums.

Oh aye, there are always exceptions. Usually though the most un-AOR possible.
