Million Dollar Reload, the five piece band, from Belfast, Ireland has released one great slab of rock with their cd, Anthems of a Degeneration.
When I hear a CD this good, I wonder if I am living on the wrong side of the pond. Why releases like this aren’t circulating in the United States to mass appeal is a crime in my opinion.
Million Dollar Reload has a sound that I would compare as a cross between Buckcherry, Guns ‘N Roses, and maybe a little bit of AC/DC. The music may be unoriginal, but when songs are this good, I could care less. A CD of this quality deserves to be in the player of every hard rock fan, regardless of what country you live in. One thing is for certain, if the band can a major record label to bite on this release, this band will be huge!
The first six songs on Anthems of a Degeneration are high energy rockers. The band doesn’t give you a chance to breathe until you get to the song, The Last Icon. This is a slower track, but should be a monster hit for this band. It is a song about rock stars passed on including AC/DC’s Bon Scott.
The pace resumes with the awesome track Tattoos and Dirty Girls and rocks all the way through the final cut, Travel. I thought the title “Travel” was a strange name for a balladesque tune, but it is another hit worthy number for the band, and a very strong note on which to close this disc.
You can buy a copy of the CD off of the Million Dollar Reload myspace page. Don’t even hesitate to pick this one up. This is a great rock CD. It should not be missed!

I have to wonder if Bret Michaels thinks he is doing his career any favors, with this stupid reality show, Rock of Love, and now Rock of Love 2 on VH1.
CC Deville has had his taste of the Reality TV game with the Surreal Life, and now Bret continues with the moronic affair that is Rock of Love 2.
Somehow, this has become one of the highest rated shows on VH1. It truly is a sad, sad day, when garbage programs like this become media darlings.
Much like Rock of Love, the producers of this show must have been scouring every seedy strip club, and adult film shop to find their new cast full of artificially enhanced women.
Rock of Love 2, already has a porn star to its credit. Angelique Moran who is seemingly going by the name Albine on Rock of Love 2, has several porn sites to her credit. A quick google search on her name, and you will find the not so interesting site PornEskimo.com. I had no idea there was such a place, and a website like this is better left unvisited. Aside from that, two other cast members are Playboy models.
Hopefully someday, Bret Michaels will go back to a credible music career. He is only embarrassing himself by treading down this Rock of Love 2 road. At the rate he is going , he will be remembered more for this pathetic excuse of a T.V. Show. VH1 must pay well for shows like this. You may resume watching the train wreck now!
